The Nelson Cottage by High West
We offer a prix fixe dinner with a menu of the chef’s choosing in a communal dining setting Wednesday through Sunday evenings throughout the Winter season. Substitutions are politely declined as we offer a set menu only. As our tables seat about 8 guests, for larger groups please give us a call to make a reservation.
We will do our best with advance notice of food related allergies, however it may not be possible to accommodate every allergy.
Dinner: $85 per guest; $100 on select Holiday nights
Hand Selected Whiskey Pairings: $40-$65 per guest
A credit card is required to secure all reservations. We have a 24-hour cancellation policy. Any cancellations with less than 24 hours' notice will result in a charge of $85 per guest.
Overall, we enjoyed our experience but would have preferred to pay a higher price for an all-inclusive meal than to pay a la carte for all drinks. It ended up being an insanely expensive evening not on par with the meal or beverages.
best restaurant in PC...thrid visit and there will be many more
Such great food and an overall incredible experience! One of our favorite things to do in Park City!
Has elements of dinner theater. You are part of the cast.
It's a shame because the chef is AMAZING--fantastic food--and the drinks are obviously the best! However, they literally packed us in like sardines. Communal tables can be fun, but the seating was elbow to elbow, chairs crammed in so tight you could barely pull them out, and my husband on the end could just about fit one leg under the table. We could hardly hear the witty and clever host, and certainly could not turn around to see him--I was so squeezed it was hard to pick up my fork without knocking my (never met before) new close friend : )
Certainly not what we were expecting for the fixed price and it could have easily been so wonderful. I vote if they can't make ends meet they should simply raise the price--it would be well worth it for the exceptional food, bourbon and whiskey galore, friendly service, and fun atmosphere it should have been.
This was the best dinner I've ever had in my life (taste, presentation, venue, etc..).
What a fantastic experience! The food was some of the best I have ever had, and the whiskey pairings were fun. The knowledge of everyone involved made for a great night. Great work!
Great dining experience! So fun.
Don’t bring a date here!!!! They seat the 2 of us us on a table that barely fit 8 people with a company of 8 guys. We were literally seating with half of our bodies outside the table. Then they put my girlfriend on the other side of the table where I couldn’t even talk to her for distance and noise level. The guys on our table understood we were very uncomfortable, but nobody of the staff did. We left after 25 minutes had only one appetizer and the “complimentary” drink.... Nobody asked if there was something wrong and still charged us $140 for an appetizer and 1 drink. I called the following day to complain, they told me the manager would have called me, but he never did. The concept is nice, but don’t go on a date, they will seat you wherever and with whoever and don’t ask you if you’re ok...
Entertaining evening with fun and friendly service, delicious food, and fun whiskey pairings. My wife and I had a lot of fun.
Best restaurant in Park City. Get the Whiskey Pairing, Terry the Whiskey Som was very knowledgeable. Will go back again.
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
