Cena always serves up very good food. Probably the only place in Park City that offers
fried clams. Also, the Cioppino is excellent. Our only complant is the tiny drinks that they serve.

Everything we ordered was fantastic, and the service was tough to beat. If you bring a car, park it in the hotel garage.

Most delicious pasta dish I’ve ever eaten! I’m not a big fan of Italian food but it was such a unique take on Italian food that we considered returning for a second night in a row. It is definitely a family environment so take this into consideration depending on the occasion for your dining.

Second or third time here and have always enjoyed but will not be back. Service was awful. From the time were seated for an 8:30 reservation, we felt like an afterthought where the restaurant just wanted to close, 15 minute wait even to be acknowledged by servers and get drink and appetizers order, half hour wait for drinks and appetizers, when main course came it appeared to have been plated fo a while. As if kitchen had closed. Very disappointed.

Thought it was going to be a nice experience when we finally figured out to park and where to enter in the snow. We were seated promptly, however it took over 15 minutes for anyone to even approach us. The server tried to rush us on ordering, but didn't know dish ingredients. Bread was cold and hard as a rock. Butter and my one drink were the best parts of the meal. For location and Deer Valley expectations....would NOT recommend. There just were not enough pratrons there for it to have been so subpar.

Food was very good. But, courses were not timed well. Main course arrived before being able to fully enjoy appetizers and salad arrived too near appetizers. Better training of the timing of allowing a fine dining experience is certainly in order. Our server was lovely, his support staff less so. Would revisit but only because of food quality. It’s a shame to rush the experience.

Service was slow. Food was subpar - especially disappointing given their location/price in the middle of Deer Valley. The bruschetta was on glorified wonder bread and included bizarrely unusual vegetables. The bread for it was cold and mushy - think glorified slice of wonder bread underneath it. On the short rib risotto, the risotto was ok but the short rib on top of it was terrible. The other entre we ordered was the filet which arrived overdone, with the sauce clearly burnt, and the the broccolini charred black and dry. Will never eat here again and highly disappointed that the Chateaux could not provide a dining experience in line with the Deer Valley aesthetic and quality.

There weren’t many people there but some came in later. They did not have the bottle of wine we wanted (one of the more reasonable choices). A bit limited menu but we found something tasty. The service was very good.

We've dined at this restaurant several times of the years. It was solid but not great in the past, but this time it was outstanding. The branzino with polenta was especially good and the service was excellent.

Always enjoy Cena. We do feel there needs to be background music and better mood lighting. The dining area is bright and stifling quiet.
Good news is great service and food. Thanks Stephanie!

Nice atmosphere at the start, but then a large party came into the bar area where we were sitting and the situation became unpleasant. We brought this up to management and they are changing their procedures to prevent this from happening in the future.

Pros: Outdoor seating during a pandemic; servers wearing masks and hand sanitizer on every table; extensive wine list; decent food; beautiful flowers on the patio (with hummingbirds, moths, bumblebees).
Cons: Wine list sorted by region instead of by type (requires a lot of research); food took a long time to arrive (even the server was confused and surprised by the wait time); overcooked steak.
Overall, my family and I had a positive experience, but it wasn't spectacular.
