Restaurant was closed. Should have checked reviews before heading out - sucks to show up and not be able to eat. Not sure if closed for good or just for mud season, but they really should notify opentable that they aren't taking reservations.

Came to the location excited for my birthday but it was not open nor did it seem like it was in service the lights were off and no one was at the desk. Super disappointing, forgot to cancel the reservation due to being upset. So i went else where. Originally from slc and traveled to park city and put in reservations but there was no one.

We arrived for our dinner reservation to find the restaurant had shut down two weeks prior. I even received a confirmation text the day before and confirmed my reservation. VERY disappointed not only that Coal and Lumber shut down and didn't contact it's patrons who had upcoming reservations, but also in Open Table for not knowing they shut down! Further frustrating when I tried to find another reservation on Open Table and it wouldn't allow me to because of the original reservation at Coal and Lumber.

Open table took my res. We walked several blocks to get there to find the restaurant was closed. Then I was unable to book another restaurant via open table because the app said I had to call the first place to cancel. Well, it was closed and no one picked up the phone so I couldn’t cancel. Kept me from booking another reservation. Waited til 10pm to eat. Thanks

This review isn’t based on going to the restaurant because although we had a reservation, the restaurant was CLOSED. Imagine our surprise!!

There was another group there that made a reservation through Open Table for last night at 7 PM as well. We all asked the Front Desk attendant at the hotel that’s attached to the building if the restaurant was open and he replied that the restaurant is closed on Wednesdays. That should definitely be something that is adjusted on OpenTable.

Delicious food. Great service. Charming and relaxing atmosphere. We had the T-bone steak and the special of the day which was lamb chops. They also accommodated my request to substitute their vegetable side for sautéed mushrooms which was much appreciated! Highly recommend!

The best thing about Coal & Lumber is its ambiance - the decor is artsy while still being classy and the location is fairly good. Everything else was just a huge let down. We arrived early and headed to the downstairs bar for a pre-dinner cocktail. While downstairs, a stressed and unhappy waiter from C&L come down a few times to cut up lemons and limes and (I presume) put in drink orders which would unknowingly set the tone for the rest of the night. Once seated, we were approached by two different waiters, both of whom were visibly frazzled and didn't seem to have a good handle on who had which tables. While they were "nice" and had good intentions, everything was just incredibly slow. From drink + food orders, and the overall attentiveness and service, it was just lacking. They easily needed an extra waiter/waitress or two. They no longer carried the wine I wanted which was still listed on the menu, and they were out of the shareable plate we ordered. But the part that really threw me was that since the kitchen is open to the dining space, I watched as more than once a waiter pointed something incorrect or wrong about a dish out to the chef and he'd shrug his shoulders and make a "what do you want me to do about it; just serve it" face and the waiter would go take the item to a table. Unfortunately, the food isn't worth it either. Despite the aura of the menu (interesting descriptions; classics that should be hard to mess up), the food was lackluster. It was boring, flavorless, and far below expectations based on other reviews I'd read. I HATED their brussel sprouts and I didn't think that was even possible, and the ragu entree had the dark, unappealing look of a squid ink pasta with whatever leftover scraps of meat they could throw in. It was unappealing in both taste and presentation. If you don't care about taste, price or service, and just want a PC hot spot it's not a bad clientele scene but I expect off-the-charts deliciousness and this was far from it.

Too bright, too loud, and the decor was just a little weird for the space. Open kitchen format was not good, since it made it easy to see the two kitchen staff leaning against stoves and counters during service. One of the cooks played with his laptop on the kitchen counter, adjusting the music playing in the restaurant - which became what he wanted to hear. But my major complaint: I specifically asked whether the dish I was ordering had garlic in it (venison, broccoli rabe, pasta and broth dish). The server asked me if it was a "preference or an allergy." I told him that I absolutely cannot have it, as it makes me sick. He assured me that he would ensure that the chef did not include any garlic. Dish came out with a lot of grated cheese on it (??), so I didn't immediately smell garlic in it. However, when I opened up the take-home container the next day, it's all I could smell. Expensive meal since I had to stay home the next day and couldn't use the Deer Valley lift ticket we'd bought before our dinner reservation ($140). I'm not on an epi-pen yet, but this could have been a real problem for someone who is more allergic than I am.

This is a great attempt, but a wide miss on getting it right. For a place named "Coal & Lumber" there was a noticeable lack of any decor regarding lumber or coal..tables made of white stone/marble for instance. The lighting was bright and unappealing, but the high ceiling was quite nice. The bar downstairs seemed to be on the right track, but the TV in the corner was hard to ignore.

The food was tasty and I can see that a lot of thought went into the dishes, but overall not much stood out, except the beets five ways. Keep at it, dim the lights (replace some with warmer lights) and soften up the place a bit

Coal and Lumber was a total let down. I booked reservations here, because the menu looked good, and it was the only place that had seating available last minute. I was a little cautious, because I know how many times the restaurant has been rebranded, but I decided we'd give it a try.
We ordered the Brussels sprouts shared plate, the beets shared plate, and the Elk entree. Everything was off. Our brussels were overcooked, and definitely needed something to round the dish out. Our beets, although prepared 5 ways were completely one note. Our elk was completely rare, like cold rare (I'd ordered medium rare), and the quinoa it came on was so overcooked it was mushy. Everything lacked seasoning and our experience overall was disappointing.
This space has great potential, but they've got to up the game with the menu. Especially with such outstanding dining in the Main Street vicinity.
Good luck.

Fell flat. Dishes were dry and uninspired. Beet dish while interesting was very dry. Mixed greens had almost no dressing. Mains were boring. Empty seats on Sunday night of Presidents’ Day weekend?? My guess is that it won’t be open in a year.

How is this place even in business? I came with a group of friends for my birthday and had such a bad experience we left and went to another restaurant. I had originally asked for a later time and they said they could not accommodate. In the 75 minutes we were there the dining room was only 15-20% full at best--they totally could have let us come later. It took 50 minutes to make 4 drinks. Again, the restaurant wasn't even close to full--why can't you make a standard cocktail that's on your menu in a reasonable amount of time? Our server took the drink order, an appetizer order, brought us bread and then disappeared for the rest of the night. He did walk by a few times and completely ignored us even as we were waving and trying to flag him down. My friends finally got the attention of another server who brought us more bread as no one EVER came to take our dinner order. The beets 5 ways appetizer that a different server brought was bland. The decor is minimal. The tables are made out of plastic and look like fake marble. The restaurant is cold in atmosphere and temperature (Hey newsflash--serve people and they will pay you, and then you can afford heat). Coal & Lumber--what a grand disappointment you are. Please go out of business so that a real restaurateur can take over you prime location and provide the food and service that is commiserate with a Park City, Utah experience.

This is a place that you want to like. Interesting menu with different exotic options, great location and cool atmosphere, but sadly the place is terribly disappointing. The service is slow and for a high end place one would expect better. For a dinner of 6, 3 of the the entrees were poorly cooked and had to be returned as the pasta was grossly undercooked. While my elk was cooked well, it was disappointing to see pieces of aluminum foil in the grains that accompanied the dish. For the money, this place is not even close. Look elsewhere

Sat upstairs where you have full view of the kitchen and all that's going on. Interesting to watch. Good and lively. Fresh, modern, clean look. A number of items on menu / drinks were not available which was disappointing. Sprout starter excellent, and enough for 2. Entre portions were huge, don't get the chicken, which was excellent, if you are not very hungry. Venison on Pasta was good but lacked finesse / sauce reduction. Not cheap, but that's not unusual for this town!

We were underwelmed. Perhaps the craziness of Sundance and the crowds did not bring out their best. The biggest disappointment was one of our guests ordered a rib eye and it was not a rib eye but a basic rib eye. On a positive note, my elk was quite good.

Service wasn't very friendly or festive, despite it being NYE. We brought our 2 kids (12 and 9) and were told the only thing other than the $35+ entrees were buttered noodles. Also, was expecting to be able to get a glass of champagne but they didn't have them by the glass - only the full bottle. Overall a disappointment even though the entrees were good, the menu was very limited and felt like the restaurant was very unaccommodating.
