We ate the Thanksgiving buffet here today and it was by far the WORST food We have ever eaten at a restaurant or Buffet!
The chocolate cake did not even taste anything like chocolate whatsoever! It tasted like some kind of cheap coco powder mixed with alcohol. and they even made the ganache toping with coco powder as well...oh it was BAD!
The pumpkin pie did not even taste like pumpkin, it was unrecognizable in flavor! My husband will eat anything that ends in the word pie and he couldn't even eat this.
The sushi was warm...not just Luke warm but actually WARM!
They burned the bread in the stuffing which mostly consisted of raisins and little bits of burnt bread.
They had this pumpkin soup that was just horrible! It was heavily over spiced with a strange mix of spices and just inedible.
The store bought cookies were dry as a bone! and so were the store bought rolls!
Just nasty nasty food! and considering the poor quality of the food VERY expensive !
I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy !

This was supposed to be fine dining but unfortunately a far cry from it. The best part of the meal was the Spainish wine, and the bread. The duck duo was all fat with a good tasting sauce for $37 the waiter
just laughed andsaid the duck was just obese. The saladthat was ordered alla cart for $7 had no more than three sprigs of lettuce and a sliver of cucumber wendy's gives more for a dollar with betterr service. Wish there was better to say after spending $150 for a dinner for two. Left hungry, and dissapointed.

The drive up Little Cottonwood is fun and adds almost an activity to the evening in and of itself. We spent an entire evening here. I had heard that it was a good idea to make reservations. It was not neccassary. It was 8:00 on a Friday night. Maybe July is not its peak season. The staff was freindly and seemed knowledgable. The food was good if maybe a little too much spice, sweetness etc (it could have been dumbed down a smidge). They need to hire an interior decorator quick. If I am spending that kind of money than I expect an all around experience. The South western print on some of the furniture did not go with the cheap asian theme that they were trying for. Lets not forget this is a lodge. Over all I enjoyed the evening but I know of better at the same cost.

The view here is spectacular - no other restaurant in Utah commands this mountain vista - sooooo - are you there for the food or the view? The sunday brunch buffet is ordinary at best - too much emphasis on sushi and ""waffles"" - with so-so desserts. There are much better places to spend your money if the quality of the food is your primary concern.
