Montage: First Look

by Ted Scheffler
- Posted // 2011-02-02 -

I spent some time this past weekend taking in the opulence of Montage, the new luxury retreat at Deer Valley's Empire Canyon. Wow. So far, my food and drink experiences at Montage have been flawless. And, a nice surprise: I'd expected prices at Montage's high-end restaurant, Apex, to be astronomical. They weren't. In fact, the pricing was in line with most Park City restaurants, and even less expensive than some.

Daly's at Montage is a gastropub and recreation area with flat screen TVs, free Wii games, three bowling lanes, pool, video games (old school and new) and more. It's a great place for kids and adults, alike.

The service at both Daly's and Apex was exceptional, from bussers keeping water glasses filled to excellent wine and table service. Frankly, I was surprised that a place this new could be so completely in sync already. 

Here's are some dishes we enjoyed at Daly's: 

Altlantic cod fish & fries.

Cheese fondue with homemade pretzels.

From Apex, Montage's signature restaurant:

The "bread" served with dinner is yummy cheese bread -- a big, airy, cheesy gougere, really.

Poulet rouge with homade herbed spaetzle.

I'll be doing a full review of Montage dining soon. Stay tuned.

A lot of Malarkey, indeed. As if PC needed more "opulent luxury retreats" and places for "drink experiences." Exceptional service? More like over-trained faux charm. The Saturday I was there with three friends, we couldn't get a waiter with a lasso. And watch yourself on the 'hand distressed' wooden floors if you've been foolish enough to stop there during skiing. Oh silly me. I thought Deer Valley was a ski resort! Save your money and save your time. Go elsewhere and experience some authentic life.
