The restaurant was not overly full when we dined there, but our waiter did not stop by our table for almost ten minutes upon our arrival. The truffle fries and salmon dinner were excellent, but the mushroom & brussel sprout side lacked flavor. We also did not get the condiments we requested until we were basically finished, our water glasses didn't get refilled very often, and our table never received a basket of bread. Overall, a disappointing experience.

Meal started with a complementary amuse bouche of a mussel salad on a cucumber slice. Baby kale Cesar salad was very good. Tuna tartare with a slice (very thin) of avocado and thickened soy dressing and chips was tiny but good and very fresh tasting. Fresh rolls were hot out of the oven and delicious. My brother and I both had the Idaho trout with silvered almonds, which was good. I thought mine was slightly overdone, but it was still tasty, as was the squash medley of veggies it came with. The wild mushrooms and grilled brussel sprouts were most brussel sprouts with no to little mushrooms, but was still tasty. I would go back. The lamb shank is braised for hours and looked very tender. The duck is also supposed to be excellent.

Ww are not big fans of the restaurants located at Snowbird. This is one of the best. We had a lovely meal. The ambiance is pretty. Our entrees were all well prepared. The service was good. I would add that it's billed as a "gastropub" which we found inaccurate as it is more just like a nice restaurant with a separate bar area that's more casual.

Decent food but poor service combined to make dinner here far below par. Soup was served in first five minutes and then it took another 40 minutes for the wait staff to come by. Another 10 for our entrees. The people here are pleasant but the lack of customer focus and attentiveness combined with the noisy environment make this a poor choose.

While lodging and dining elsewhere within the Snowbird complex, the understated offerings did not prepare me for the impressive flagship experience at the Cliff Lodge restaurant, the Aerie, on the tenth floor; an elegant, well designed with expansive windows and mountain views. Service was very professional, efficient but comfortable. The menu was unusually diverse; nearly every entrée intrigued us. The wine list appeared quite adequate, but lacked choices of leading French Burgundy (a personal favorite). We dined there on two separate evenings. The first night was satisfied with lighter but satisfying small plates, the chef's outstanding kale & quinoa salad, and a Portobello mushroom sandwich which was a disappointment, as it was served cold. The second night demanded a full entrée, the lamb shank, which was delicious on its own, but the splash of thick aged lemon sauce on top did definitely not compliment the succulent meat and rich brown sauce.
