    This was probably my 5th time at Talisker. With one notable exception all visits were outstanding. Because I am a creature of habit, once again I ordered the brussel sprouts to start and the fried chicken entree. Chicken is something I rarely order in a fine dining restaurant but Talisker's rendition is so fabulous I just can't help myself. I've had great and not so great servers and last night's was not the best. Not terrible, just not as good as my usual experience. As always I was very impressed with the selection of wines by the glass.

    We loved this restaurant! The food was locally sourced and the flavors were amazing! Standouts for us were the lamb loin, the Brussels sprouts, and the goat cheesecake. Had a nice Heitz cabernet with dinner. The activity in the open kitchen was fun to watch. I loved the décor and the comfortable seating. And even though the menu has some fairly exotic flavors, they had the kid-size plain medium-rare steak that my granddaughter wanted so it was perfect for everyone in our party.

    The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. The seating was very comfortable and the furnishings are classy and unique. The service was top notch. The appetizers of Crab and Lobster Beignets and the Brussel Sprouts were amazing. The pork, fried chicken and steak were delicious. I felt like the duck was extremely bland. The cheesecake and baked crepe were unique and so divine. Very nice evening.

  • Disappointing food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 8/9/2014
    Overall, the food was a disappointment compared to previous visits to this restaurant. The lobster crab beignets were mushy and served over a few limp greens with no sauce. The Brussels sprouts were drenched in a tart vinegary dressing which overpowered their taste. Even the green salad was uninspired with a couple of dried strawberries, and not much else included. The fried chicken was not served hot. Too bad the chef has moved on to new digs!

    Casually upscale, au currant with their culinary endeavors but not experimental to the point of absurdity...i.e., no unseemly ingredient pairings, yet very creative. Definitely captures the Parisienne vibe. Tables close together in a good way. If you sit in the long banquette up front you can meet your neighbor, compare food and watch the Park City Main Street scene. For us, it was a fun social event, as well as a serious culinary experience. Waiter, Leon, KNEW his menu!! The house dressing (on the mixed greens) was insane....fig balsamic. The Steelhead was a delicate, but flavorful, confection of transportative magic. Beef short ribs were very good...a little dry...but the treatment/sauce and accoutrements (veggies) made it worth it!

    The reservation process and follow up were great. The service was less than desirable. We sat at the table for at least 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. Finally the GM came by and we asked him if we could order drinks. After that he pretty much took care of us as the waitress assigned to our party seemed to be busy elsewhere.we ordered 4 appetizers all of which were really good. For entrees we had the pork chop, very dry, duck, very good, filet (ordered to chefs preference on temp), over cooked, and fried chicken, very good. The wine selection and cocktails were the highlight of our experience and the deserts were not anything exceptional. For the price and reputation, I expected more.

    We live in PA & have a condo in PC. We dine at Talisker on Main 6-8 times yearly for the past five years. The evening started with a switch in waitresses, then being told "if we wanted beef, there are only 4 left...claim them." After waiting 20 minutes for dessert, my husband inquired and was informed "they were working on it." Dessert arrived about 30 minutes after ordered....the desserts were "comp" due to the wait. Our party of 8 included one child who is allergic to shellfish & peanuts. We asked for one dessert to go.....peanut butter ice cream was substituted for vanilla. Who does that especially when we told our server numerous times about the peanut allergy!! After a $600 bill, we were disappointed. Not sure we will be back.

    We dropped into Talisker in Main for an early dinner on the patio before heading to a show at The Egyptian. The patio is a nice intimate space out of the summer heat. Duck was delightful served with summer squash and freshly foraged wild mushrooms. Steelhead trout on risotto also nice. Rachel provided wonderful service and had us out the door in time for the show.

    Nothing special in terms of menu or food. Service was decent but a bit underwhelmed with experience- tried it once but no plans to return. Riverhorse is easily 10x better and even offers local specials- so full price at talisker for "just okay" doesn't cut it.

    I can't think of enough good things to say about my experience at Talisker. It wasn't my first visit, but it had been a while. From beginning to end it was a perfect evening. Service, food, ambience, all outstanding. I had trouble making choices, everything sounded so good, but my server was most helpful. Definitely get the Brussels sprouts, and the fried chicken was excellent as well.

    Went here for dinner, not expecting too much. The service was top notch. We never ran out of drinks and were asked when half way through if we would like another. The food was some of the best I have had in a long time. I had the pea soup (perfectly puree'd) and the short rib. Also this restaurant has no buy one get one gimmick as a lot of the other one's in Downtown Park City have. Prices are reasonable also, the food and service cannot be beat. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a great meal.

    Exquisite food, impeccably prepared. For starters we had had the Lobster & Crab Beignets which were excellent, and a unique Brussel Sprouts & Cabbage dish that had raisins, dates, bacon and hazel nuts in a marvelous concoction. Every one of the main dishes was tempting, but on this occasion we both had the Lamb Loin. Although we live in Park City in the winter, my wife is from London and I'm from NYC and we both agreed it was the best lamb dish we have ever had. The chef is truly special and the service is excellent.

    I recently visited Park City for the first time for a long weekend vacation. We dined at several of the best restaurants in town, however Talisker takes the cake on all levels from decor, ambiance, food and service! The reviews on Yelp looked amazing so lucky for us there was availability on Sunday evening. We were seated in the Wine Room, I highly recommend requesting the cozy, intimate tables back there. From a design element, from the menus to the restrooms, this restaurant took notice to every little detail. This is defnitely the place to go if you're a foodie. The lamb was delicously succulent, and starting with a salad and lobster/crab appetizer was just the right amount of food! Perfection in Park City!

    Talisker on Main has been one of my favorites since first going there four years ago. Unfortunately the quality of the food against the price point has not kept up. I will still return given my favorable memories but my fear is that this favorite is starting to decline as it rests on past success.

    While the food was tasty you could tell the cooks rely more on oils for flavor rather than the natural flavors of the food. Service was more like you would get in a bar. Server was loud and less attentive than I would have liked. Because we only ordered main courses it seemed he was rushing us. Only when we ordered expensive wine by the glass did we get more attention.

    We first saw this recommended in the NY Times and then heard from everyone we met in Deer Valley that it was their favorite restaurant so we had high expectations. The food was good but not fabulous. Our reservation was later in the evening and we felt rushed to the point of having to say we were not in a hurry. The staff seemed like they were ready to be finished with the evening. I had the signature fried chicken which was good and juicy but flavors in all the dishes were not subtle and everything was rich. The door opens directly into the restaurant so on a cold night it could be uncomfortable.

    We decided to go to Taliskers based on reviews and other comments. Perhaps it was over hyped because it did not come close to our expectations. The prices were over the top. The food was just average. Presentation was nice but taste average. The service was professional but not friendly or engaging. Overall, I would not recommend this place when you consider the price. I would expect more. Also, I understand a split charge for the entrée but not for a salad.

    I dined at Talisker for the first time on March 6 and it was terrific. I received a warning that the table right at the front of the restaurant could be unpleasantly drafty, but this was not an issue as we were seated in a charming alcove surrounded by wine. Kale salad with duck confit and fried chicken were both outstanding.

    Wonderful quaint restaurant in the heart of PC Main Street. Farm to table concept. Small menu skus seafood over steak but still a wonderful esoteric menu to choose from. Tiffany could not have been more intuitive and delivered outstanding service. We enjoyed a cozy table in the wine " vault" surrounded bu Utahs best labels, many wines exclusive to Talisker s only so those into wine no need to take your own, find something special on the list. Front room is vibrant and although the tables are close together you'll feel like you are in the kitchen and will enjoy watching Chef in action. Talikers is a genuine gem- highly recommend.

    What a great menu and tastes. We started off with a nice mini cup amuse-bouche quick hitter of a creamy maple jalapeño almost custard that got the taste buds flowing. The Short rib / mushroom appetizer was so yummy and the perfect portion. Our table shared the Tater Tots and Biscuits for our entres. But be warned these are not your ORE-IDA type tots. They are about 1 ½” rectangular cubes of garlic and salt love. We enjoyed the fried chicken (very moist breast), I had the pork rib chop which was perfectly cooked and the perfect portion. Our waitress was exceptional. She helped pair some wines and knew the whole menu in and out. She was very well versed. It was by far the best dining experience we had all week. NOT EVEN CLOSE.
