Very pleasant experience. Only negative is the inability to reach anyone by phone. If Open Table not working (which it was not for this restaurant for some days) it is almost impossible to get info - messages left do not get a return call and no one ever answers - ir is messages only.

Great place. How about just a little personal customer service via phone?

We enjoyed the Easter Brunch Buffet here it was wonderful. The reason for the 4 stars and not 5 was that they do not have tables for 4 in the main area. They sat us by ourselves in a big lonely room and then took pity on us and moved us to the main room where we sat at a tiny table where we squeezed in. Which we didn't really mind but again 5 stars to me means perfection. The second reason for the 4 stars is the lack of desserts, as in zero desserts. The food was excellent with several items to choose from, they had live music, beautiful views. But after having given up dessert for Lent (40 days) I was looking forward to breaking the fast at Easter brunch with a dessert buffet and to my surprise there was nada!

Would recommend though, we spent a wonderful Sunday afternoon there and we will be back for sure.

Made our way out here from SLC using Uber. Its a pretty long ride, but the distllery tour, scenery and food were all worth it. We were there on a Sunday afternoon for brunch buffet. It was pricier than we were expecting at $35 each, but the food and service were both excellent.

West Refectory is worth the effort it takes to get up to it! The view is beautiful, food and drinks are great! I highly recommend the old fashion, its made with their whiskey and is delicious.
If you get there when the rosemary bread is baked, you're a lucky person!

Came here for Sunday brunch and I thought the selection of food was mediocre at best. There are two small stations. The two soups offered weren't hot and nothing spectacular. There were muffins for dessert. Very overpriced for what was offered. The service was good and the mountain ambience is very peaceful. The most notable things may have been the golden eagle on the van ride up and the scenery. Would certainly not return for dining.

I took my parent to the Sunday brunch for my mom's birthday. It was a wonderful experience and something that you don't do on an everyday basis. You feel pampered and upper class even if only for brunch! The service was excellent and the atmosphere was fantastic. It is a little pricey, but well worth it for the experience. We will be taking the tour of the distillery next time we come up! The only bad part of this experience was the fact that you can't leave a tip on your bill and can only leave cash. There is NO mention of this anywhere that I could find and in a mostly cash-less society, we found ourselves struggling to collect enough cash between us to equal a decent tip. That needs to change. You need to allow a tip on our bill.

We were seated early, and our server, Greg was very unattentive and slow, and we were always asking for things we needed. We were asked to take a tour, and said yes, however, when I received my $144 bill, there was no itemized for our brunch or the tour, and I asked for it and never received, and I was a bit perturbed about that. The food was outstanding.

We drove 40 miles to this place only to find out that they had closed for the weekend. Made my reservation over a month in advance. Why they were taking reservations when they were closed I don't know. Or if that was decided later, why didn't someone notify me. Inexcusable.

Wow, what a pleasant surprise. Took a group of friends, mostly whisky fans, up to Wanship for a Sunday brunch, distillery tour and tasting afterwards. The whole experience was awesome! The brunch food and service were fantastic (interesting, well rounded and delicious menu on buffet) , the tour was very fun, relaxed and informative , and the tasting afterwards was amazing.
Will be back for many more occasions or just to have a nice brunch and drive. Loved every minute.

Everything was great except the noise level and handicap access. Music plus people talking plus dishes “clinking” made it difficult for conversation with my elderly parents. We were offered a different area but because of the distance from the food, we declined. The staff was great at getting us to a door where we could pull the car up to leave (without stairs). Maybe not the best place for elderly or disabled.

Food and service was amazing!! I think everyone at our table ate two or more sausages. The eggs/omelettes were made to order and delicious! The high West lemonade will knock you on your butt! Definitely make a reservation because this place is packed, even on a random fall Sunday.

This was a fantastic place to spend a few hours. The brunch, even at $35 per person, was one of the best I've ever had. I'm not a buffet fan but everything they served was top end and delicious. The only thing I could say, is I think the OJ should be fresh. It wasn't the greatest and given the price and location, it would be nice if it were fresh squeezed. I'll definitely be back!

The restaurant (distillery) is a bit out of the way, but well worth the drive. The Sunday brunch is amazing and all you can eat. While you are there, make sure you do the tour of the distillery. The whiskey making process is fascinating.

Compared to the cost of appx. $40/person brunch, menu was limited, some ingredients were missed - e.g., no whip cream for French toast, etc. In addition, each dish didn't have enough descriptions so that I mistakenly took horse radish for whip cream, which was totally embarrassing. Overall the ambience was great and the service was good, especially we liked no-tip policy for paying fair wage to the servers like places in Europe and Asia. Nonetheless, we won't go there again.

We loved the views and ambiance from the patio. It was both elegant and comfortable. The food was delicious and offered plenty of variety and tons of flavor. Our server was prompt and helpful without being overbearing. Our only complaint was that we couldn't leave a tip with our credit card and we didn't bring cash so make sure you bring some cash! Otherwise, it is a fantastic way to spend a Sunday morning out of the city!

Brunch yesterday - July 30, 2017-The "Tri-Tip Beef" was awful....dry, tough and flavor-less.
If you are not going to do the beef brisket anymore, do another meat. Carved ham,
carved roast beef, carved roast turkey. Three out of 4 of my guest did not have eggs, because the line was too long. Perhaps eggs benedict (already assembled) or egg casseroles would help.

We took our adult children here on Sunday for the distillery tour, tasting and Sunday Brunch. It was a lovely experience that we all enjoyed. The tour is excellent and our ambassador (guide) was knowledgeable and articulate. You do have to climb up and down some stairs in the distillery so people with limited mobility will not be able to participate in the whole tour. The tour is free and is in one large open room so I would encourage these people to still take the tour and see what they can see.
We took the tour at 11:00 and had brunch reservations at 12:15. We were a little late for our reservation because the tastings took too long. I think more staff is needed in the tasting room to get people served quickly. You get a flight of High West whiskeys (4 small glasses) for $14. Two people can share a flight.
The brunch is $35 dollars and was excellent. Mimosas and Bloody Mary's are extra. We sat outside on the deck under the roof line. The view was lovely and there was a nice breeze and the noise level outside was low, which we like because my husband wears hearing aids. Inside the noise level was higher because of glass and concrete and a guitarist, who played softly.
The drive from Park City takes about 35 minutes and the views are nice and the highway(I-80) is excellent. I highly recommend this tour.
If you don't have time for this tour, there is a small tour at the Highwest Restaurant and Saloon in Park City and you can do tastings at the bar.
