Wahso Review

Warm finger towels, curtained booths, and attentive service call back the Jazz-era Orient. Start your evening with a sake martini shaken tableside, then ask your server about the tuna tartar. Though it's not on the menu, if the kitchen isn't too slammed, the chef will prepare an artistic selection of appetizers such as crispy salt-and-pepper calamari, Malaysian curried-chicken pot stickers, and a couple of shot-glass-size soup tasters. The banana leaf–steamed halibut and the Szechuan filet mignon are favorite entrées.

    Wahso Review

    We returned to Wahso during our annual fall trip to see the stunning autumn foliage. This is our favorite restaurant in Park City and quite possibly, anywhere. My son leaned over and said towards the end of the meal "I can think of no better restaurant, can you Mom?" This is after a trip to London and Paris last spring with a culinary theme and Rome the year before...tough competition.

    Here are his comments:
    "The food at Wahso was better than ever. The cole slaw and corn that came with their spareribs were the best we have ever had. One of our all-time favorite dishes are their blistered green beans. Everything is always cooked perfectly and we could not find a single fault. Our server was attentive and had a good sense of humor."

    We were seated in one of their sumptuous booths that afforded some privacy around an elegant dining room that is remniscent of Shanghai in the decadent 1920s.

    They are known for their sake based martinis (saketini?) and I indulged in the Jade martini which had pineapple juice and midori. It was exquisite and I felt quite a value because it comes in a shaker and is essentially two martini glasses full.

    Wahso lives up to our very high expectations in delivering exquisite food in a uniquely stunning setting with top notch faultless service. It continues to earn its designation as our favorite restaurant.
