About the restaurant
One of Park City's most popular restaurants, Blind Dog serves comfortable American East Coast influenced cuisine from Chef Penn Kinsey in a casual yet elegant setting. Blind Dog's fantastic staff will warmly welcome you and delight you with an extraordinary selection of jet fresh fish & oysters, dry aged steaks, sashimi, sushi, the ever famous mac and cheese and their quick wit. Reservations are accepted by telephone and online for both of our Dining Rooms and the Patio when Park City's weather is at its best. Please call for patio reservations as it is quite popular. In our more laid back Bar and Raw/Sushi Bar, the a la carte menus are offered with better access to the televised games. Come by, grab a bite, and leave with a smile. We are unable to accept reservations in the Bar areas, as it is first come, first served. Your seat is safe with us.

The food (sushi) was exceptional, as always. I hadn't tried the Spicy Tuna Nachos, until this visit. They will be on my list for the next several visits!

About the restaurant
Bodega is the street level Tavern, that offers no frills cocktails in addition to draft beer and shots.

With a reservation, or if allowed admission from the Bartender upstairs, you can experience The Rest. It is a subterranean gem that looks like a bar that Hemingway would have built. Dark wood, taxidermy, old books and plenty of good whiskey. Perfect place for privacy and escaping the world for a minute... Or hours.

About the restaurant
Our dream began in late 2014, long before we became the "Best Mexican Restaurant in San Juan Capistrano". It began inside a 17- foot food truck with the burning desire to change the way guests perceived food truck cuisine to be we have always believed that Mexican food should be MORE! More complex, modern, enjoyable and healthier for our bodies.

Ambiance, parking, service was great. Food was good but not amazing- fried pickles and sauce were good, burger was solid and they cooked it to medium which I like. Fries were undercooked a little mushy. My husband got the meat lovers pizza and he said it was very salty but crispy and fresh, he ate a lot of it just said the meat was super salty. We got the drunken missionary drinks and they tasted great and came with a fruit garnish. Overall 4/5 and we’d go back.

Alex, our server, was so kind, patient and hard working for us and all of his tables! We loved the ability to create your own breakfast plate and the prices were very very reasonable. We will definitely go back there to try dinner food and different cocktails!
