Powder – Waldorf Astoria Park City Utah
Amazing staff and the most memorable experience! Would absolutely come back!
I was most impressed by the service we received from Martin the manager at the restaurant . I would not hesitate to return while he is working there.
Powder is delicious! Fine dining in a beautiful location. Service impeccable. Amazing wine list. Highly recommend!
Highly recommend. Staying at the Waldorf, dined here the past 2 nights. Both meals were fab. And lucky us, we had Christopher taking care of us. Everything was superb. Waldorf Caesar salad shared to start. Amaz, 2 nights 4 dishes. All great. Bolognese, sea bass, short rib special and scallop/rabbit. All perfect. Such careful and purposeful preparation. Would actually expect the prices to be higher for the quality of the food.
Wine menu has plenty of options in all price ranges. Ambience super cool.
We are big food snobs and we loved it!
Amazing meal as always. Martin, Max and Aaron made a special night even better. Epic meal and service. Thank you, Ron
The waitress had no idea what was gluten free on the menu. That’s a pretty common request these days and I would hope the Waldorf has experienced wait staff. I ended up with tuna and some lettuce. Flavorless and not at all filling. I went home and had a protein bar. The Alpine old fashioned tasted funny. Our waitress forgot we were there and when she finally saw us waiting for the check you could tell. She also asked if we wanted another bottle of champagne when half was left in the one at the table. Very pricey disappointment. Not at all what I expected.
Main courses were delectable, beautiful plating, appetizers were good but nothing to write home about, and wine selection was amazing but other than that my dinner experience left a bit to be desired. We waited almost 10 mins for a hostess to come up to the stand and seat us when we go there, wait and bar staff walked by but we were not acknowledged. After we finally sat down, it took forever to have a member of the wait staff come to our table, and when he did he offered us a water selection but then never took our other drink orders. We had to ask for them ourselves when he asked for our food order. I want to stress that he was super nice and hardworking, just could use more fine dining training. The restaurant itself is a little small; tables close together, casual bar area with hotel guests drinking right next to dinner tables...so its not overly intimate or quiet (not very romantic if that's is what you want). I would return because the food was good, but would probably stick with a main course and wine. The vibe and service just did not match the menu ( high end, well thought out dishes and they offer a tasting selection with wine pairings) and prices, which is unfortunate.
Disappointing food. Good service.
Soup was a very weak link. Very sweet and not complex at all. Not as good as canned soup and certainly nothing you would expect of a restaurant of this level. Then the entrees were served...cold. Both the salmon and the duck were cold and so we told the server. The manager came over and said that they would prepare the dishes from scratch (not just reheat, which was appreciated). When they were served they were warmer and better. Although the salmon was good, the duck was tough and neither entree was exceptional. Without asking, the manager comped the entrees, which was the class way to handle the situation. The desserts were quite good but they were out of two different desserts.
Overall, the service was good and the presentations excellent. Desserts were the highlight of the meal (creme brulee 3 ways and tiramisu). The entrees were weak; the menu itself was not what we would have expected for this restaurant.
Simply amazing! The food, the service, and the snowstorm made for a perfect afternoon.
This is fine for Park City but I would expect more from the Waldorf. Menu from new executive chef is perfectly average - nothing horribly inventive. The bartenders failed at execution an old fashioned - the most basic of drinks - with a failure to adequately chill it (even though they use mixing glasses), a sad orange twist with too much pith, and no nose to the cocktail because they either didn’t twist it or didn’t rub the rim. Cocktail menu in general lacks range.
Even the kids menu pasta with tomato sauce was bland - somehow that is also worse than last year.
This is fine for convenience if you are staying here but I would not come here as a destination.
Service a bit off. Waiter very nice, chris I believe but bar staff and hostess a bit aloof. Just basic things like acknowledging you are waiting and they will egt
Overpriced for the quality of food. Very hit or miss, certain items were good and others were sub par.
Excellent service, distinct delicious menu and good location away from busy downtown Park City.
What an unreal evening at Powder! We were dining to celebrate my birthday and Steven took such unbelievable care of us. Having dined extensively in NY I didn’t know what to expect coming to Powder, but this meal was easily one of the best I’ve had. I ordered the buffalo bolognese, which tasted as divine as it was plated. Steven was also kind enough to make some excellent wine suggestions, offering expertise and knowledge that absolutely made the meal. Definitely will be back anytime I am in Park City.
Amazing food and amazing service! The chef came out to hand deliver our desserts! Highly recommend you visit this restaurant for dinner during your stay!
Powder is horribly overpriced in my estimation. We had a simple lunch with wine (a single glass each) and the total ended up over $160. Dessert added a bit to it, but the prices were a little too rich for my blood. The lunch we had was a lunch steak and fries...the plates were cold so the perfectly cooked steak was cold before we could eat it. The fries were served in their own container so they were hot enough...but the steak was cold. A warm plate would have held the steak temperature much better. The bread, while tasty was served cold with hard butter. Just little touches that might make the prices more tolerable...but it just fell short of a perfect meal. If I had not had a gift certificate I would never have gone there. Even the $30 hamburger at the ski resort would be better than this. It was quiet in there in the middle of the afternoon as that was the only time we could get a reservation. The earlier attempt to make a dinner reservation failed because my phone call - message left - was never returned. They apparently did not bother so after 4 days or so I made a reservation on Open Table. While there were slim pickings on times, I was able to make something work for our schedule around ski days.
All said...the Creme Brulee was some of the best in the world..and the Tiramisu presentation was excellent. Maybe the only things worth going there for!
Chef Hermann was a wonderful host and took great interest in the diners' experience. The food was creative and well executed.
Small portions. Expected the dessert menu to be phenomenal given they say they have a French trained chef. They were average.
My duck was burnt to charcoal and my wife’s bison was so salty it was inedible - sent both entrees back. My soup was bland. My wife loved her foie grad pate. The GM was very solicitous, comped our food and offered to buy 2 new entrees for us, but we were done at that point. Our waiter, Steve did his best to make it right.
Fantastic food and service. Max the manager goes above and beyond to make everything go perfect I will definitely go again
Best culinary experience of our trip! Service was off the charts ! This was true fine dining! You must go while in Park City.
The food was delicious and very healthy, accommodating gluten free, the waiter Christopher “Chris” was excellent and the managers were very attentive and super nice.
5 STARS FOR SURE!!!
As usual, the food and service were fantastic!
Chef Herman was great! Martin is doing a terrific job running the room. Steve was a very professional server. An amazing meal!!!!
What you’d expect for a WF restaurant. Greatness. Server was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, entertaining and added to the experience. Food was excellent, inventive. We will be back, many times.
excellent service and food, great cocktails and very friendly
One on if not the best places to eat in the Park City area. Food, ambiance and service are all excellent. Great drinks too! Will go back on every visit to Park City
They have just revised the Menu and are working in an outstanding new Chef. Everything about the restaurant was wonderful. High end on the corkage when they use to offer free corkage on occasion. Otherwise a wonderful experience.
The food was delicious. The service was amazing. We were lucky to get Steven as our server. He made excellent recommendations and perfect wine pairings! It made for a perfect anniversary celebration. Thank you Steven. Thank you Powder. Thank you Waldorf Astoria.
Fantastic food and top shelf service! Highly Recommend!!!
Dinner was delicious shared the elk and the salmon dinner. Both were equally amazing. Peach dessert left a bit to be desired
We are long time residents of Park City and have enjoyed Powder over the years. The change in menu is a big mistake. Not much to choose from so we ended up ordering from the bar menu which was fair at best. Food was improperly prepared. It was clear the chef is in way over his head. We do not plan to return anytime soon, unless they dramatically improve the menu choices and find a new chef.
My family and I had a great experience dining at Powder while vacationing in Utah. We were great nicely upon our arrival. The food was delicious and our waiter did a great job.
It was not the servers fault. It was a staffing problem. Our service was poor, but our server was overwhelmed.
We love this place. The new chef and menu are fantastic . Service is always outstanding at Powder. Some interesting and super creative items on the new menu worth checking out. The Pork Belly and the Corn Chowder were both outstanding. Really enjoyed the Swordfish Prosciutto. Can’t wait for our next trip back.
The food was good, but for the price and atmosphere I expected to be a bit more "wow-ed". There were also very few gluten-free and dairy-free options.
Food and service were fantastic as usual. The new Chef's menu selections have elevated the food to a whole new level.
We always make Powder a dinner stop every time we come to Park City. The menu is always imaginative and tasty. The quality and value is outstanding.
The new Chef's food is fabulous. The management is attentive. My waiter, Steven, gave great recommendations and phenomenal service.
Always a great place for a drink and dinner when in Park City.
