    We've been going to Riverhorse for at least 25 years and it has always been one of the best 2 or 3 restaurants in Park City. It seems to be constantly upgrading itself. Since our last visit there has been a significant remodel of the original part of the restaurant, changing it from a rather large, not especially attractive room to a smaller and much more comfortable space, in addition to adding a bar area and completely moving the kitchen. The newer (relatively) part has not changed much, bit didn' y have to. Food has remained as excEllent as ever; rather simple dishes done very well. Often moderately embellished classicreparation, but never outrageous or puzzling. Pretty much a "must go"in Park City.

    I've lived in Park City for several years but never taken an opportunity to eat at the River Horse so this was my first experience. Both of our beef filets were ordered medium rare, but arrived between medium and well done. My friend was having such a good time I didn't raise the issue with the server and found the filet to be respectable if only because it was of good quality. It was only after that she mentioned that her filet was not prepared properly either. The limited menu that evening consisted of one fish dish (halibut) and various red meats with potatoes. Life is too short to drop $200 on dinner and be disappointed.

    Dinner at Riverhorse was the best meal during a 3 day visit to Park City. It was expensive as compared to the value received. Very noisy. "Heavenly" halibut was reported to be very good. Lamb chops were "okay".

    Park City is beautiful. That's a given. Sitting on the balcony are Riverhorse made the evening perfect. Our waiter, Tyler, was so attentive and a always ready whenever we needed him. Absolutely no complaints about the food. I ordered the Halibut with Macadamia nuts; it was so tender and the flavor was to die for. The atmosphere is great. I love how the restaurant is decorated. We had a live singer who was really good and the music choice was perfect for the evening. We could sing along, which made the evening light-hearted and warm.

    We were a large boisterous group of 7 and we enjoy our food/wine/and a good time (meaning: we can get loud). The restaurant does it right by keeping large groups in a section away from other diners to avoid disturbing romantic dinners and smaller groups. Service was spot-on and the food was really good! Not a big fan of wild game, but the Trio of Elk, Venison and Buffalo was THE best I've ever had. I generally steer away from game meat because of the potential game-y taste, but there wasn't a hint of it (farm-raised). Fried chicken is good, but I prefer it traditional (they smoke theirs), and the macadamia nut crusted halibut was excellent! Will definitely make Riverhorse a go-to dining spot everytime we visit Park City.

    From the first bite to the last our party of four was in awe. How can anyone cook this well? The flavors, the textures...so fabulous and one of our very favorite wines was on the excellent wine list. Considering we first ate at The River Horse in 1992, this place has had an amazing run. We'll be back.

    As always, Riverhorse does not disappoint. From the ambiance to the view to the food and service, you can always expect the highest quality. Plus, the live music was fantastic! My husband had the filet and I had the halibut, and both dishes were cooked perfectly. Thank you, Riverhorse staff, for a wonderful evening!

    The Riverhorse on Main had a fabulous menu including appetizers. We loved the food that was prepared with care and presentation was excellent as well. The service was outstanding, from the moment we stepped into the restaurant, a waiter helped my somewhat invalid wife up the stairs, and when she took a little too long in the restroom, asked me if he could ask one of the female staff to check on her. And he wasn't even our waiter. I had the rack of lamb in a cherry sauce, cooked to perfection. My wife had the halibut, which she said was also delicious. We didn't try their deserts. The only negative was that it was a very noisy environment.

    We had very special guests with us from New York. I had made reservations 3 weeks in advance and confirmed the day of the reserv. To our surprise there was a wedding taking place in the restaurant. They sat us in a very poor location by the kitchen, we could not even here ourselves to talk. Very Very disappointing. Many opportunies to inform us. Poor management organization. Weddings should be scheduled Mon-Thurs not Friday eve.

    We have come here for dinner several times because the food is very good and the service is even better. Like so many restaurants today though the place is noisy with high ceilings and no attempt to dampen the sounds. On this particular night there was a piano player/vocalist who added to the noise level. Just the piano would have been OK but the amplified sound of her less than appealing voice became an unwelcome distraction to dinner for all four of us. We will definitely check ahead about the entertainment before we come again.

    Recommended by SLC native as the best restaurant in Park City; we couldn't agree more! Everyone recommended the signature halibut, so we ordered and were happy we did. Salad of roasted beets, arugula, pancetta & lemon panacotta was truly a stroke of genius. The halibut was cooked to perfection and surrounded by a delightful citrus gastric with dollops of mango and mint puree. Only let down was Death by Chocolate dessert which consisted of 5 variants on the theme; "Truffles" were a warm, undercooked doughy, unappetizing odd mess that I had to spit out; white chocolate-pistachio bark had no flavor; the chocolate shake was warm, but ice cream & flourless torte were true chocolate decadence. Reserve seat on balcony for great view & service.

    Ate here for the second time this weekend and can't say we will go back. The oysters and duck confit were good although the latter was more like fried chicken. Our mains lacked flavor and seasoning, the fried chicken and halibut respectively. Service was very good...thank you Colin. To cap the night off we had a woman nursing her baby in full view (ie no attempt at discretion) across from us. While generally we have no issue with this it's not what I want to see during a nice meal...especially at 8pm on a Saturday night.

    My wife and I had dinner here for our Anniversary, and overall it was a good experience. The restaurant had wonderful live entertainment, and although our service started out slow, it got much better as the night went on. The only complaints we had were that the lamb was slightly over cooked and my wife's salad was not done to order. The food was still good, but for the price we were just slightly disappointed it was not exactly to how we had ordered.

    it is so noisy that it was difficult to carry on a conversation. They have a piano player/singer who cranks up her microphone and people then talk even louder. The architecture of the place contributes to the extreme noise level....very high ceiling with a glass section. Food was fine - not stellar, but fine. Unfortunately with the prices on the wine list (over three times retail) it is disappointing. A new owner took over four years ago and claims to have spent $1mm on renovations.....he should have paid attention to his air conditioning more than he did because it is terribly inadequate for the size of the space. Sun pours in the windows from the west and it was very hot inside....of course, during ski season it isn't a problem.

    My husband and I came here for our anniversary dinner. We sat at a nice table on the deck and had a very professional server. We brought in 2 bottles of wine and she informed us there would be a SMALL corkage fee, which we expected. I ordered the surf and turf and ordered my filet medium. My husband ordered Ahi seared rare. Our meals came out and my filet was cooked WELL, but I didn't want to take the time to send it back. It was still good, but way overcooked. My husband's Ahi was also overcooked and not exceptional. When we got the bill, the corkage fee turned out to be $20 per bottle. I don't consider that SMALL! All in all it was a good experience, but I feel the restaurant is WAY overpriced. I won't return any time soon.

One of the best, if not the best experience I've had here, and there are great restaurants in this town. The beet salad, spectacular, signature halibut wonderful. So nice to have fish served when not over cooked! Dessert wonderful. Waiter adoreable. Worth every dollar! Nice to not be disappointed when paying for a high end dinner. We will be back!

    We have dined at River horse many time yet have never had as bad of an experience as we did last Saturday evening, July 5th. As we looked around, every table was having to yell their conversations competing with the music group up on stage. As the Band Played on they even got louder and then the diners would have to get louder to compete. We went there for a nice relaxing dinner with are 3 adult kids and ended up leaving having felt as if we were arguing because of all the high volume conversations. Usually there is a Piano player who sings a little background music not a ROCK CONCERT. We have had wonderful dining experiences with the River Horse in the past and hope they can address this issue immediately...
