On a recent trip to Snowbird, Utah I met a friend for dinner at El Chanate. We started with a margarita and it was excellent. My preference is for a more "tart" drink and the bartender made it perfectly. Our waiter was polite and very conversant on the menu and the area,.

The chips and salsa were well done and tasty. I had the house special called Pork Chile Verde and it was excellent. Prepared in a banana leaf and covered with the green salsa the portion size was just right. My dinner companion had the chicken enchiladas and could not finish the portion.

There is a nice selection of micro-beers mostly from the area and we sampled a couple of those. Overall a very pleasant dining experience although, like everything on the mountain, it was a bit pricey.

Had a lovely dinner at El Chanate! Waitress was friendly and food was decent! A few days later, we got an iPhone wet and the folks at El Chanate kindly gave us some uncooked rice for us to place the iPhone into! And it worked! Much appreciation to the staff for their help!

Chips and salsa were tasty. Our entrees were very expensive for what we got. The food was good but not great. Service was slow with drinks. But the view from the patio is amazing.

Was here for a little family get away and we just decided to try this place. I ordered the stuffed peppers which were expensive and soggy. My rice and beans also didn't show up till we were done.They got both of my kids orders wrong. For the price you should get at least decent service. Bottom line it's expensive and it sucks.

Unbelievably slow service and then when we asked for some service like water and menus the server was hostile, elitist, snotty, and crashed dishes on the table. Who knows how good the food is because the service was so poor we waited for an hour and then left unattended. Definitely miss this one. Don't waste your precious time at the resort on this one. Pick any other restaurant.
