Glitretind Restaurant

VERIFIED LUXURY
The celebrated Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Stein Eriksen Lodge claims not only the most impressive of views of the Wasatch Mountains but one of the most lauded restaurants in Utah as well.

Located within the lauded Salt Lake City hotel, Glitretind Restaurant does not disappoint. You may be coming to the mountains to ski, but you shouldn’t leave without having a meal at this prestigious hotspot.

This warm and romantic Four-Star eatery serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. After you work up an appetite on the slopes, head to the luxury Park City restaurant to order a hearty meal like the buffalo flank steak and Brown Gulf shrimp, grits, grilled sweet potatoes and chimichurri sauce or the Kobe pot roast with vegetables, creamed potatoes and horseradish.

The wine selection is also impressive. Managed by sommelier Cara Schwindt, the restaurant's selection houses more than 350 types of wine that total more than 8,000 bottles.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• Glitretind is Norwegian for “shimmering mountain.” The name is fitting — the dining room looks out on the snowy mountain in Utah’s Wasatch range.

• Ask to sit near a window. You can watch skiers make their way down the slopes in the winter, and in the summer the patio lets you take in the fresh mountain air.

• With a backdrop of striking alpine views and rustic fireplaces, the menu at Glitretind offers regional American cuisine, focusing on meat, fresh seafood and locally sourced ingredients. The restaurant’s menu of hearty fare changes completely twice a year.

• The luxury Park City restaurant's servers are patient and willing to make substitutions to make you happy — especially if you have food allergies. When delivering dishes to your table, waitstaff will introduce the ingredients and preparation before leaving you to enjoy.

• The luxury Park City restaurant offers more than 750 different wines, ranging from local to international varietals. If you need help making a selection from the 10,000 bottle cellar, just ask sommelier Cara Schwindt.
