We had read the write-ups and this place was highly recommended. From the moment we walked in the service seemed disjointed. Our table wasn't ready on time and there was no place to wait, no big deal, that happens. Our reservation was for 845pm, the earliest available so we were clearly in the last sitting. The strange thing was the waiters and bus-folks seemed determined to rush us through the meal (they succeeded, we had appetizers, a bottle of wine, main courses and desert and we were shuttled out the door in less than 1.5 hours with a fair number of patrons still dining). The ingredients and flavors were interesting, but seemed to be trying to hard to be cute. The dishes in general were very rich. For example the lobster/crab beignets we an interesting idea but very heavy and lacked flavor. The one dish that did stand out was the fried chicken which fully lived up to the hype. Overall a relatively expensive and annoying experience.

The food was really good.
The atmosphere was nice. Had our dinner in a nice and comfortable booth.
The staff was friendly.
The menu felt like its was trying too hard. The main dishes seemed more complicated than necessary in a ski resort.
Ordered the steak and the fried chicken. Both really good.
We ordered the Tater Totos on a whim and were very surprised at how good they were.

We have been coming to Park City for years and always try to dine at Talisker. This year we were a party of six, and again it did not disappoint. I had the Kale and Duck Confit salad and the European Sea Bass entree and both were divine. It was my best meal of the week.

Talisker on Main is an extraordinary restaurant in a town not lacking in excellence eateries. The food is local, seasonal, and absolutely delicious. The service is attentive and the wine list is great. We go back there as often as possible.

We are from NYC area so used to high prices, but this was just not good enough food to warrant the prices. Added insult to injury that waiters and other staff pretentious, with the attitude they were doing us a favor. Lots of places with better service and food in PC
