Great experience with group of friends for dinner and drinks! Food was excellent. Great meeting the chef and the staff was friendly and attentive. It was rather noisy due to acoustics of the cottage (a lot of wood all around and floor). Overall a great experience and would do it again!
Great food. Fun, different experience even for non whiskey drinkers.
Great whiskey pairings, unique atmosphere. We were visiting from Las Vegas and met interesting people from back east. They sat us with 6 other people
Fabulous meal, great experience. Definitely have the whiskey pairing. Take the tour when finished,very cool.
One of the coolest dining experiences. The whiskey pairings were awesome!
Incredible experience. Hard to describe but amazing food and paired with exceptional whisky!
A great experience. A little local history great food and fun whiskey tasting y a terrific staff. Family style dining was super fun to engage with other people. A must experience for park city
Seven courses (literally) with the added whiskey pairings (High West is a boutique distillery). Everything was delicious, and the resident whiskey ambassador provided interesting information about the pairings.
The cuisine avoids ingredients that many diners would not like, so a bit middle of the road. Given that the menu is not published, it would be a shame to go and have dishes that were disliked - so a good approach all in all. Everything was meticulously prepared and delicious.
Mostly family style service, but plenty to go around. Fun to sit and dine with strangers who share love of food and riding the mountain.
Be prepared to spend a lot of money (a bit too much IMHO).
Reserve well in advance because they fill up quickly.
Fabulous place - loved the food and was good value -it is served family style. It was a tad bit noisy - so would not recommend for an intimate evening
Amazing experience. Love the history of the home and owners, the whiskey cocktails and descriptions mixed with the pairing of outstanding food was incredible. The chef's were approachable as well and very kind. Loved everything about this. They even accomodated a large group at the last minute! thanks for a wonderful last night in Park City!
A truly unique dining experience in a charming setting. Family-style prix fixe menu with each course outdoing the next. The chef personally explains his menu to the guests. The highlight of the evening is the whisky sommelier who pairs High West’s array of different offerings with meal courses. Learn everything you wanted to know about whisky and how to best appreciate it. It’s well worth taking the optional after dinner tour of the nearby High West distilling room.
The meal and atmosphere were amazing. Great experience.
Incredible food, enjoyed the family style atmosphere.
Great service and staff. Food was great. Special dinner with whiskey pairings.
Everything about Nelson Cottage was excellent. Will be back with other friends in future visits.
Unbelievable experience. Terry our host was absolutely amazing. His tour of the distillery was out of this world. Couldn't have asked for a better evening.
We had an amazing time!! Our host, servers and cooks were great. We went as a couple & had wonderful time meeting new people. Really fun experience!
Amazing meal and great experience! Second time there and it did not disappoint!!
They made our honeymoon/my birthday dinner so special and unforgettable. Every course and pairing was so thoughtfully prepared and explained. We loved the bonus distillery tour at the end of the meal with our table mates!
Great dining and venue. The whiskey pairing with the food is amazing. This is a great place to have a communal dinner. It was my wife and i’s anniversary and it was a great way to spend it over a table with great food. My wife is vegetarian and they had great options that served her as well. And you will love the hospitality of the staff and Terry. Phenomenal presentations of the whiskey.
This has all the elements of a potentially great experience....but they need to slow it down....we had an 8:30 reservation which is the last seating of the evening and the entire experience was so rushed. We sat down and within a few minutes got our soup course followed so quickly by our salad course and before salads were even finished the rest of the meal was put down on the table. There was too much food too quickly and we didn't even end up trying it all because by the time we were ready for it, it was cold. The food was beautiful but the overall experience was flat and very expensive.
Great place for date night. Staff was wonderful and attentive. I enjoyed the food options and would definitely go back
Pricey, but worth it if you're looking for a unique Park City experience. Multiple parties are seated at each table, and the food is served family style, but both the food and the whiskey are excellent. Nelson Cottage is one of our go-to dinners when we have friends in town that are new to Park City!
This private dining experience is a delight. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The food and whiskeys are delicious. It is expensive, but probably worth it if you appreciate a smaller, more intimate setting with a whiskey tasting.
Our dinner at Nelson's Cottage was absolutely one of the best meals we have ever had. We were still talking about it days later. The tasting menu included several courses of delicious and unique offerings, with the option to pair a whisky with some of the courses. Everything was cooked to perfection. The ambiance of the space was warm and inviting. We had to arrive late because of a long drive from Alta and they were so gracious and kind to us.
Wonderful experience, a bit pricier than anticipated. Cost will be a factor in how many times we will return.
Practically Perfect In Every Way
Nelson Cottage is a very cozy community environment with great food & great whiskey. Certainly on the upper echelon in price range. Great experience for a special occasion
This was a wonderful experience! One seating, prix fixe menu, family-style dining. The food was perfect, and the staff was friendly. Made for a wonderful night.
The cottage was a nice setting in a restored old house. The food and whiskey pairing was a very interesting dining experience and both were delicious and went well together. We were seated with 2 other very friendly couples and hit it off quickly and had a great time.
Chef Kevin is the BEST!!!!!!!! Whiskey was second best !!!!!!
The best place in town!!!!!!
Awesome dinner at the Cottage. The food was amazing and the whiskey pairing a must.
Second time at Nelson Cottage and we will definitely come back. Great special occasion meal with a group of friends. Fun and unique evening of very good food, paired with several whiskies of the High West Distillery. Food, which is a set menu, is served family style. Terry, the host, is entertaining and extremely knowledgeable about the whiskies. We had a special St Patrick’s meal with corned wagyu beef (really good) and a chocolate dessert that was outrageously good. If you like bourbon/rye and good food in a relaxed setting, you will love this.
Too expensive for a shared table
This was a unique experience set in a historical building, and I’d highly recommend it. The whiskey tasting, delicious food and high level of service made for a perfect evening. Make sure to leave room for dessert.
Wonderful experience, intimate with amazing food, service and ambiance. Not to be missed!
The food was amazing and the pairing of whiskey was super unique. The chef and host were super knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was expensive but delicious.
We had a party of four, and we opted for the winter tasting menu with the whiskey pairing. Fantastic food and the whiskey was delicious, as expected. Pretty expensive, but good for the rare special occasion.
We were on a ski trip and were aware of High West Distillery. We thought we would try the restaurant our first night on a Friday and happened across the Nelson Cottage. My wife is vegetarian and my daughter is a preteen so the menu matters.
The Nelson has a prefix menu but accommodated us spectacularly. The pairing with the whiskeys is unexpected and a must if you visit. Obviously my daughter did not try that. Nor was it so much alcohol that you get smashed.
The atmosphere was great as it was communal and Nelson’s made us all comfortable to visit and share experiences. The historic building and feeling of a Mountain Cabin made you hungry.
The staff and Chefs were so attentive and the food was truly the star of the show.
This is my “don’t miss” pick in Park City. It’s an experience like no other. This quaint cottage seats ~30 and serves family style seasonal dishes. You’ll need a reservation for one of their two nightly seatings. Come early for a pre-dinner cocktail outside with heat lamps and cushioned seating to enjoy the view of downtown Park City and views of the mountains. Every meal is different but impeccable prepared, explained and served. We had fish stew and New Zealand rack of lamb.
1. Don’t miss the whiskey pairing.
2. Come with friends or prepare to be friendly with others at your table.
