Horrible Christmas Eve dinner at Saddle Peak Lodge

My family and I have been going to SPL on X-mas every year for 12 years or so and have a fond place in our heart for the restaurant.

The meal was price fix with an overly ambitious menu in that every dish had multiple ingrediants. There was no venison or elk or even a filet available. The main course were rabbit, duck and lamb. The food came out slow and cold and the service was somewhat apathetic. It was as if the chef pre-cooked it all and the staff reheated it.

I think this was a result of a poorly executed price fix but a top end place should never make that mistake. On the plus side they did remove the wine from our bill when we inquired of the waitress what she thought of the meal.
