Full disclosure, I typically do not write restaurant reviews, but I have read some of the 5-star reviews of this restaurant and they have left me wondering what alternate universe my wife and I experienced last night. My only thought is that half the staff...including the chef didn’t show up for their shift. Yes, they have an extensive beer offering and a reasonable wine list although if all you want is a glass of wine you are limited to a choice of three reds and three whites. Forget about enjoying a quiet meal, the owners appear to have adopted the downtown big city model of cranking up the muzak to an uncomfortable level so that they can turn the tables over quickly. Service was excruciatingly slow, there were two wait staff which appeared to be about half of what they needed. Even after we ordered we waited an inordinately long time for our meals to arrive, marginally above room temperature. The menu is relatively limited, if you want something other than a burger or appetizer. My wife ordered chicken that clearly was prepared in a bain-marie without being finished under a broiler. Picture boiled chicken here. Yes, my wife mentioned that her chicken was cold and yes, our waitress offered to order up another meal but considering that we had waited an inordinate amount a time the first time around she declined the offer. As others have mentioned the large portion sizes, I feel obliged to mention that my wife, all 5’8”, 120lbs of her walked away hungry. I ordered the pulled lamb shank burger, don’t do that. Lamb is very tasty but if not prepared properly it can be very greasy. This was not prepared properly. I suspect that it too came from the bain-marie, by the time I was halfway through it and it had cooled to room temperature it was very unpleasant to eat. I will admit that the French fries and small Cesar salad were good. At some point, long after we had finished our meals the check arrived for two entrées and one glass of wine, $78 with a 15% tip. Our waitress turned on her heels leaving me with the impression that 15% was less than expected, I thought that it was way too much.More

After a cold day of skiing I went to 1609 to grab a bite and warm up. The food was great and they had a deal on with half priced appys. Sarah was my server and she was very friendly and quick with service. She...recommended the perfect wine for me and went over their specials. I'll definitely be back!More

Excellent food choices and if you are a Caesar lover you must try the Caesar-nator drink. Ask for Sarah. She was an amazing server.

The service we received from Gemma in making our booking for Christmas Day was exceptional. Knowing we would be tired after a long flight from Australia arriving on Christmas Day, she suggested to deliver our Christmas dinner to our room at the Snowbird Lodge to...eat our Christmas dinner as a family, but from the comfort of our hotel in our PJs! Two lovely guys delivered two large boxes of delicious Christmas dinner to our room, with plentiful portions for our family of 5. Just like Christmas, enough leftovers for days! The whole family enjoyed the delicious food and desserts, and was very thankful to Gemma for arranging all of this for us prior to our arrival to make our Christmas Day so special. The service from 1609 restaurant was nothing but exceptional - all communication prior to us arriving, the friendly service from the guys who delivered the food, and the food itself!More
