    We have Ben living in PC now for 2-3 years. We had never known of Nelson Cottage. Great food and service. Small with maybe 10-12 tables so it’s nice and quiet. Great whisky cocktails of course and the menu is a price fixe menu.

    Excellent prix fix menu! We were seated outside on the patio because the weather was so nice. We also were served a welcome cocktail as well as 2 additional courses - an egg salad and caviar and grilled bread with whiskey honey butter. Everything was really delicious. Great experience!

    Each and every course of our dinner was fantastic! The service was excellent! The drinks were wonderful! Unfortunately, it was so extremely loud in the cottage that we most likely will not return unless we can be seated outside. We were able to have our dessert outside, which was a complete game changer.

    We have eaten here many times. The food is always excellent and the service as well. Last night I felt the food was a little skimpy. Three scallops for 2 people? Maybe 5 small slices of tenderloin? For the price, I would expect more.

    For a special evening, this is the place to go! The meal and experience and divine. Starting with a special welcome cocktail through the delicious dessert, your taste buds will thank you. We had the bourbon pairing which was good even though we are not bourbon drinkers. We learned a lot. I recommend it highly.

    Six couples from all over come to Park City every year for the Fourth of July. Previously dining at Nelson cottage I thought it would be a great experience for our friends. They provided a table to accommodate all 12 of us outside on the quaint side porch of the Nelson cottage. The food was spectacular, service was on point, they accommodated all dietary restrictions and was hands down voted best dining experience since visiting PC together for over 10 years. Thank you - we will be back!

    This was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. The staff was very kind and created a warm & welcoming environment, despite the near freezing temps outside. They shared the story of High West through the true history of Park City. The food has so much attention to detail and beauty, paired with each whiskey. Every flavor was noted and blended just perfectly. The value was high, I recommend sharing a whiskey pairing for every two people. However it was worth every moment, 10/10!

    The overall experience was wonderful the people could not have been friendlier and we really enjoy having a prefix menu. While some of the dishes were amazing we didn’t feel that way about all of them. I also love whiskey but having it as a pairing with food was a little much I think a shared pairing would’ve been better it’s a lot of whiskey at the end of the day.
