Fodor's Review

Plenty of purple-hue touches—velvet upholstered booths, hand-painted scrims, and Western murals—brighten the 1898 brick building that was once the local telegraph office. "Fancy cowboy" cuisine includes such dishes as grilled veal meat loaf with poblano peppers and pine nuts or the lime-grilled black tiger shrimp. Try a Purple Sage martini (akin to a cosmopolitan, but purple). In summer, eat on the back deck.

Worst Park City dining experience!

What started out as a lovely evening for a group of eight locals last night turned into the worst dining experience we've ever had at a restaurant anywhere. We brought bottles of wine, which is very common in UT. Our server brought glasses, uncorked the bottles and walked away. We had to pour our own wine, which was unusual, but we gave it a pass. We ordered appetizers, starters and entrees all around, which were served leisurely, but were weren't

in a hurry and didn't mind the relaxed pace. After we paid our $600+ bill, including $25 per bottle corkage fees and 18% gratuity, the owner came by our table and impolitely asked us to vacate the table as he had other guests waiting. Stunned, we put on our coats and left. We stopped at the door and spoke to the owner briefly, explaining that we had never been so rudely asked to leave a restaurant before. The owner, Travis, said he "didn't care". He had other customers who would actually buy wine from the restaurant and he needed the table asap. Needless to say, we won't be dining at Purple Sage ever again. The food was good, but the service was marginal and we were given a bum's rush out the door. I'll add that the short ribs, while tasty and tender, were the fattiest I've ever had anywhere. How sad that the owner of this restaurant felt compelled to treat guests so badly ....
