Coal & Lumber Ratings and Reviews
Horrible experience. Octopus appetizer was tough, overcooked and we ended up sending it back. Salad arrived without any dressing. The worst thing was the waitress came by our table to check on us with a dirty dish from another table containing grizzly meat scraps and waved it under our noses as she grabbed a dish. Disgusting. It took 20 minutes to get an overpriced, lack luster drink from the bar. The entrees (pasta and trout) were bland and overpriced. We wanted a nice evening out but this was not the place to go. We will never go back.
We were a table of three and all of us thought that the food was very delicious. We all found the menu very nondescript, though. It was really hard to know exactly what we were ordering. The ingredients were listed and nothing more. We asked our waiter for more explanations of the menu but he wasn't very knowledgable or engaging.
The restaurant was very quiet for a Friday night, only 3 tables full.
Hit and miss on the food. Some of it was awesome and under priced which who can complain about that. A few dishes were a total miss under seasoned over cooked/dry and slightly burnt tasting. The service was okay. Although we spent 250++++ for 2 people we did not really feel like the server paid much attention to us and we had to repeat ask for a few things. Wasn't a busy night.
Food was excellent and surprisingly ample portions. With so many choices in PC, this restaurant should be on your "must go" list. Servers were helpful, attentive and fun. The ambience on the outdoor patio, especially sitting near the fire on a crisp nite was beautiful, especially for a date! Inside is very eclectic and lively too. Wonderful experience.
I've been a part time Park City resident for many years. This was one of the best, most creative and flavorful meals I have ever had. Top notch ingredients beautifully presented. Every dish clicked. It was a thoroughly satisfying meal. My only regret was being too full for dessert. My compliments to chef Jordan. This was a meal above and beyond
We had a terrific meal with excellent service. Corey was our server. She was intelligent, lively and entertaining. We met the head chef while we were there. All seemed like they couldn't do enough for us. The food was excellent. Beautifully prepared. Almost everything was locally sourced and thoughtfully prepared. I love being able to see the open kitchen from the dining room. We were there late, so the atmosphere was quiet. But I can see how it could seem a bit louder, but not out of the ordinary. The bar downstairs was cozy. We had some great craft cocktails before we went upstairs to the dining room. I thought the food was reasonably priced as well.
Disappointing service. In fact - we felt as though service was close to non -existent. Too bad the service was so lacking because the food is actually quite good. 2nd visit there was so very different than our 1st - we loved it last month - but - after this visit I doubt if we will go back.
Pleasantly surprised at the tasteful and beautifully presented appetizers - we had two vegetarian dishes - the roasted cauliflower and the heirloom carrots - both were excellent. Our entrees were also excellent - coal and lumber is a great addition to the Main Street park city dining scene.
This was a fantastic meal. We split the cheese and charcuterie tray which came with home made charcuterie and various cheeses that were all just fantastic. I ordered the Filet special which came with truffle and a bone marrow bearnaise sauce. It was one of the best filets I have ever had and I have had many! If it is offered when you are there it is worth the money, don't even think twice. My dinner mates ordered the rotisserie pork dinner (special that night) which was great and the elk which was fabulous. Service was decent, the bar was a little backed up which caused our drinks to come our slow but they sufficed.
My ONLY complaint about this place is that the noise level can get high. There was a point for about 20 minutes that I felt like I was yelling at my dinner mates and we were only at a 4 person table. It didn't last the whole time but when it was loud it was loud. Regardless one of the top 5 meals of my life will go back.
Loved our experience - despite slow service. The dining room is beautiful and was fun to sit on the side where we could see chef and crew working their magic over the wood fires. Food - amazing, servers were all knowledgeable and a bit over-worked (hence the slow service) but extremely professional. Would put it on the list of must go back on our next trip to Park City
Came here with the family on our last night in Park City. What a fabulous place to remember our trip by! The food, service, ambiance were all exemplary. We saw right in front of the preparation counter, and got to see the awesome sous chef in action! My 9-yr old wanted the foie gras and octopus as appetizers (yes, I know, my expensive foodie kid). He ordered their crispy chicken as entree and loved it! Older son got their cannelloni pasta w/ ragu sauce and said it was the best pasta he's ever had (my picky kid) Hubby had the lamb, and I had a local fish (maybe trout?). Service was attentive and superb: from the hostess girls, servers, and bus boys, and of course, the sous chef and main chef. Even the marketing guy was there taking pics and was so nice and friendly.
Overall, what a WONDERFUL experience to top off our vacation! We will be back for sure!
We were very excited about the menu, but when the food arrived we found the flavors were often over the top. The carrot appetizer with puffed rice was so promising yet the flavor was too tangy. Venison pasta was disappointing as well. The crab cakes, however, were fantastic. This restaurant has so much potential, flavors just need to be slightly refined. Very nice contemporary/industrial setting with a nice view.
Where do I begin:
a). An off-menu bottle Gruet Brut was billed at $65. The bottle retails at $15. We were NOT informed of this price in advance.
b). Both of our appetizers were under cooked. We ordered the sunchokes and carrots. They were equally raw at the center.
c). When my plate of scallops was placed on the table I detected a fishy odor. The first (and only) bite revealed a pungent ammonia taste which confirmed that the seafood was spoiled.
d). The custard in the creme brûlée was still warm
e). The menu was extremely limited due to Sundance and the service charge of 23% was excessive.
f). The chicken dish was fantastic
g). The servers were extremely professional and proficient
Pork chop was excellent, scallops were not fresh, starters were underwhelming. We were a party of 8 in Park City for skiing during Sundance. Unaware of how standards change during this period. The restaurant itself was taken over for Sundance so we were in a hastily setup room next to a bar; the wines were limited to only overpriced and then we were charged a fix 23% gratuity with prior notification. This place will not be in business when we return next year. Don't go is my advice; you can get great food elsewhere in Park City with better surroundings, service and attitude. Our party included folks from London, Glasgow and Boston area. We were embarrassed at the shoddy treatment. We should have been notified in advance that restaurant was not available and of 23%. Sundance festival should not be excuse for cheating customers.
