Definitely a gimmick and expensive. Beautiful atmosphere. The meat station was not good. The lamb was very gamey. I would say the stews were the best. This is a glorified buffet.

I felt a little bit like in Sizzler, with good quality food and service, but when you pay this money you don’t want to feel like you are eating in a buffet - cafeteria, I would not go again or recommend, unless you are somebody who wants to staff yourself to death without paying the $, very kind waitresses

We have had a home in Park City for 10 years, but had never dined here before. We went with a couple that was visiting and thoroughly enjoyed. We have had lunch at Empire Lodge many times while skiing, but they really transform the space in the evening. The offerings are all all cooked over wood fires in the fireplaces, with 5 different stations around the lodge. The selections were eclectic, varied and intriguing. The Raclette station was amazing, we also enjoyed the short ribs, salmon, duck and lamb in our group. Service was attentive and professional, but you avail yourselves of the different stations at your own pace, which was very pleasant. We like to bring our own wine and the corkage policy is free for the first bottle and $20 for others which is pretty reasonable. We will definitely return.

Our server, Reggie, was great. He really new the menu and made suggestions that we enjoyed. The two appetizers we ordered were excellent. They were the bone marrow and Caesar salad. The entrees we ordered were all a bit over cooked. Dessert was the bread pudding, it was delicious. The bar tender, Ryan, was also very nice. We would try it again.

Our 2nd time here. Good not great. Need more selections. $70 is a lot of food to eat-should include one alcoholic beverage for that price. Don't think we will come back. Lamb very fatty. Bison tips, Veal stew and Raclette very good. Everything else ok.

What a treat this was! My family really enjoyed FSD. It is an absolute must for anyone visiting Park City / Deer Valley. It was so enjoyable visiting all of the food stations and the food was excellent. Our waiter was a gem. Manuel M. Be sure to ask for his section. He had a wonderful personality and we wanted for nothing. The guy at the fireplace serving the cheese plates was so friendly and personable, we adored him too. What a treat this restaurant was. If you miss it while you’re in town, then you’ve really missed a treat. Get your reservations early. It is very popular. Roll Tide!

The food was outstanding. The service was beyond excellent. Our son is on a gluten free diet and he had plenty of delicious options on the well-labeled stations as well as the opportunity to order kid-friendly items such as a huge chocolate chip cookie, bread rolls, chicken tenders and fries. I’m not a meat-eater, so I enjoyed the fish, cheese fondue, salads, vegetable dishes (delicious Brussel sprout pasta) and white bean soup. My husband and our other two children loved the ribs, veal stew and carving station of turkey and lamb etc. All delicious!

My wife and I visit Empire Canyon Lodge every year for her birthday or Valentine's. We absolutely love the experience after being introduced to it years ago through a company party. The food is outstanding, the service is great, and the overall ambience is fantastic. Nothing like sitting by a fire when it's snowy outside enjoying a great meal with a significant other. The cheese fire is the best part. We go back multiple times. The veal and potatoes is also a favorite.

Special Birthday for my wife. Asked the manager for a certain waiter and table 6 weeks ago and request was not followed through on. We eat at Fireside multiply times a year and this time was very noisy, cramped tables, which was not a special evening for my wife's big birthday.

Not up to usual standard for Fireside. First time I booked in Open Table will go back to booking through resort.

Very disappointing from service to food. Had mold in their strawberries, that is supposedly inspected individually before placed in bowl at fondue station. Ordered cocktail, after that wait staff never returned to ask if we wanted anything else to drink. Food was disappointing. Not what we expected. Had heard good things, however, did not live up to what we had heard.

This was our second time dining at Fireside Dining at Deer Valley Resort and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The selection of offerings met everyone's criteria and the raclette bar/ dessert fondue bar were particularly memorable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We plan to return the next time we are in the area.

The atmosphere was makeshift...it's used for skiers coming off the slopes during the day and the restaurant is then set up for dinner at night. It was very noisy with a lot of children. The food was very mediocre at best, but way over priced. I could not even finish my plate without a server grabbing my plate...this happened twice. My family and I ate out at very nice restaurants every night during our stay at Deer Valley and Fireside Dining was the only disappointment. Unless you have a bunch of young kids or you like to eat a lot of mediocre food at one time...don't go. I was fooled by the reviews.

Fireside dinning at Deer Valley has become part of our family tradition for our family ski vacation to Park City. The 5 fire places with various food cooking provide an exciting adventure in authentic european n dinning. At each of our visitis in the past five years the menue has been different with each sellection being extremely flavorful and well prepared. The restaurant also has a varied and excellen wine selecttion.
