Excellent food and service
The food was good, but my entree came out like warm. The best item was the sticky toffee cake with earl grey ice cream. My husband and I both agreed that we could go back just for that.
Right on Main Street. Very cool old brick building.
Waiter was very charismatic, knowledgeable, funny.
Everything on menu was unique and we all enjoyed our selections.
Manager stopped by to chat and he was super friendly as well.
Food and service were very mediocre. Sea bass was extremely over cooked and every dish lacked seasoning and bold flavors. Ambiance was great! Loved the design of the restaurant
Great customer service! Food was amazing. Order the biscuits to start!!
The food was excellent but I do think it was alittle pricie for was you received. The wine menu was also pretty steep.
Wow, what a perfect meal! We deliberately booked for a week-night, as this restaurant is very popular and gets over-stressed (rushed service etc) on the weekends. We found street parking (expensive at $12 for 3 hours, payment needed until midnight), right across from the restaurant.
The restaurant called us at lunchtime on the day of our booking to confirm. They obviously have a waitlist! :) We arrived about 10 minutes early, but our table was ready and waiting for us. Our server was Will, and he was perfect in every way. Smart, informative, friendly but not intrusive. He made some great recommendations for cocktails, including the Untethered. The house biscuits were unbelievably good and are served with a honey butter (not Tupelo honey, but it is a local Utah honey). Crab fritters were crispy and delicious.
We shared our main courses. The scallops were sweet, tender and amazing. The sea bass was cooked beautifully, with a crispy skin which was very much like fine quality bacon. The celery root puree was incredibly memorable for a vegetable dish. Sticky toffee pudding and passion fruit salad were superlative desserts. The whole meal was washed down with a bottle of Parallel Chardonnay, which beats many high end white Burgundy wines (Meursault and Puligny come to mind as being similar).
Not cheap, but incredibly good value for money. Probably the best meal we have had this year. We will definitely come back and ask to sit at one of Will's tables. :)
Excellent food and service
My girlfriend and I went to Tupelo for our 1 year anniversary, the staff at every level of the restaurant takes their job very seriously and made the experience extremely pleasant. The portions are small but the flavor is HUGE. Our server was knowledgable about the wine selection and it's pairings with the food we ordered. Even in the simplest of dishes (the biscuits and Tupelo honey butter) you could tell an enormous amount of care and time was put into the recipe for the dish. This is definitely our new favorite special occasion spot!
My husband and three teenaged girls went to Tupelo for dinner last week. The atmosphere is very cozy and perfect for a snowy evening. My husband and I loved the food, although it isn't really a spot for kids, even if they are teenagers. We'll go back again when we are in Park City with friends or for a nice romantic dinner.
Fantastic meal and overall experience. Love the menu. Will go back regularly.
We had excellent service and wonderful food. We were celebrating a special birthday but have dined there before.
It was our anniversary- they sat us next to the front door. Complete with a space heater because the door opened every 5 mins and we were basically in the lobby as people were waiting for the host stand. We booked way in advance and mentioned it was a special occasion. We had people basically standing at our table with their coats on or trying to store their coats on the bench we were sitting on. The food was also average- the trout was more like a boring broth with fish (350 main and River horse were way better food).
Would recommend against going there. Overpriced and food below average. Service poor as well.
Will was a great server! Excellent experience! The food and ambience was lovely!
Competition is tough on Main, so many great quality food options. Excellent, would rate in top 3 of Park City. It's on Main, so, yes, it's expensive, but at least the food and wine are fantastic!
I have been to Tupelo several times and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. I would come back everytime I am in Park City
Food was very good, but even for a busy Saturday night in a ski town the service was a little rushed. Servers cleared plates before all diners had finished and there was minimal time between first courses and mains.
It was so drafty in the upstairs dining room that I had to wear my coat during dinner.
Great vibe. Friendly staff. Very attentive service. Fine dining without all the fuss. Our food was superb.
Great food! Good service. Felt rushed to get in and out.
One of the best meals I have had in Park City in a while. I will definitely keep Tupelo on my short list of restaurants.
We had several appetizers, each of which was unique and absolutely delicious. I was impressed by the focus on using local products and the Chef's commitment to quality.
Late reservation but managed to seat our party, arrived on time and no waiting for a table. Service was attentive and helpful suggestions on menu options.
Excellent dinner. I enjoyed the beet salad very much. Our waiter was friendly and helpful.
Over all the food was okay. One entree was horrible. The omelet was dry and over cooked. There was no dressing on the salad.
The server was rude , the manager dismissed us. Then no one came by to refill the ice tea. The chef tossed our check down and walked off. It was like an episode of how to never treat a guest . Never an apology.
We are locals and will share our experience.
Went with a group of 8 friends to celebrate a birthday. Everyone had a great time and the service was great. Food was slightly overpriced but we still enjoyed ourselves.
Ambience was great. We were seated right away for our reservation. Service was very good. Food was hit or miss. Sons steak was not good, gristley, other meals were good but nothing great. Two stellar items were the biscuits and deviled eggs we had as appetizers.
Roughly start for a first visit - they were out of several dinner entrees we had licked and then our wine selection. Waiter disappeared for so long after stopping by the table for a moment that we thought he had left - which happened one time to us!
He recovered by offering us a few appetizers and a nicer wine. The duck was definitely undercooked. Overall nice evening but mostly because of
our company. 50/50 on whether to give it another try when there are so many solid choices that never falter.
Good but a bit pretentious.
The service was terrible and the food was good but it came out before our cocktails.
Food was very good. However if you spend a lot of time in Park City the restaurants kind of are very similar. We had the lamb cheek pasta starter which was very good, probably my favorite part of the meal. I had the trout and husband the beef and barley. Both were good, steak looked to be cooked perfectly. Dessert we had the sticky toffee pudding, tasted good but was dry and the toffee syrup was think so it wasn’t able to be absorbed into the cake. The ice cream was interesting but really good. Also the honey butter with the bread was a standout. We didn’t do the biscuits but would imagine the combo to be really good. Our first time dining here, won’t be our last.
My first time at Tupelo, though I’ve been to the location several times. The owners have leveraged the building in probably the best way possible and is really comfortable. We sat in an upstairs corner with great views, with us rare on Main Street. The southern influence of the chef is noticeable and unique on Main Street too. The table had both light and heavy / rich dishes. The mushroom toast was the best / most unique item on the menu and we had it both as an app and a main. Loved it!
We went for Valentine’s Day so obviously more busy than normal and they did a great job with food and service for such a night. Our sea bass was a little too done and was a bit mushy but other than that everything was great!
Food was mediocre at best. Not worth the price. Specialty drink was terrible and I told our server and he didn’t seem to care. Ricotta appetizer was bland. Steak was good. Dessert was over cooked and tasted burned. Tables are too close together. Felt like I was dining with the couple next to us.
Don’t buy the hype, just stay away. This was awful yet expensive. I’ve got no problem spending on fine dining but this is not fine dining. Horrible service, impersonal food delivery by random staff with no description of dishes. Main waiter never checked back. Food itself passable but nothing special. Horribly disappointing.
Great food. Good choice on Main Street
Bad menu description, especially on the mussels which had a spicy jalapeño broth and there was no mention of that. When served the server mentioned it should come with a spoon for the broth. Something he never bothered to bring. The trout, while delicious, also had a bad menu description. It noted squash, it did not specify spaghetti squash....which is very different from other squashes. The server, Dan, offered no in depth explanation of the menu items. After the entrees arrived, no one came to the table to ensure everything was OK. After the check was dropped we waited about 10+ minutes for Dan to finalize the transaction that included his tip. We actually had to walk the check to him to give him the tip. We tipped about 18%, which was questioned by Dan. Quite awkward! This is not a restaurant we will frequent again based mostly on the service. When you pay the prices expected at such a restaurant, my expectations are that the knowledge of and the attention of the server will be commiserate.
I travel a lot and feel I am a fairly sophisticated diner and I was really disappointed in Tupelo. I chose this place based on the great rating and reviews on open table and I couldn’t believe how BAD it was! The chef is from the south, yet the biscuits and honey butter were just so-so. The bass on clam chowder sounded awesome, but the large clams were so rubbery that it was impossible to chew them and I had to spit them out to avoid choking and risking an airway blockage. Of all the dishes we ordered, the scallops with short rib sauce was done very well. The wild mushroom & house made ricotta toast was unremarkable. The ricotta & mushrooms had no flavor, the egg didn’t really add much to the dish and all you could really taste was the burnt flavor of the grilled toast. The bus boys gave the best service being very friendly & attentive. When I asked the waiter if I could share something about my dining experience and explained how the tough & rubbery clams were inedible, he just stared and said “OK” & never apologized for an unfortunate dining experience, but just placed the dessert menus on the table and walked off. 20min. later when the server never returned to take our dessert order, I had to track him down to ask for the check & I found him chatting in the bar as the restaurant was only half full at that point. As a final note, I make it a habit to only write reviews when a restaurant is really fantastic or really horrid. While I’ve written over 100 great reviews, my bad review of Tupelo is only the 3rd bad review I’ve done in 25years. If you decide to give Tupelo, I hope things have improved and you find it much better than I did.
Everything about our experience was terrific. We really enjoyed every dish we had and Scott's service was lovely
Great atmosphere. My husband had the sous vide lamb and it was excellent. I had the deviled eggs and creamed carrot soup. It was good but not great.
