Best food we had in Telluride. We took our daughter one evening and had no complaints. Wine, food and service was exceptional and was one of the highlights of our trip. Next time I would like to go during the day so we could take advantage of the view!

This restaurant is excellent. Aside from the wonderful atmosphere, the food and service was exemplary. During our visit, we met Mario who made everything at that restaurant run like clockwork. He was so attention to detail and his restaurant team was impressive. Thank you for the amazing experience at the chef table, the wonderful food and stellar wine. We look... More

I have no idea how Mario and Nita (the managers) can pull this off. Every time I eat here, I'm overwhelmed by the food, the view, and the staff. It's like a Danny Meyer restaurant got uprooted from New York and dropped in the mountains of SW Colorado. Tonight I had the lamb chops with the octopus starter. My guests... More

We had a nice dinner here. Not quite the fine dining experience you pay for although an enjoyable meal. I had the Lobster Bisque and the Elk the Bisque was ok and the Elk was slightly overdone. The wine list is great. My wife had the Cod which was overly salty. The kids should have been asked how they want... More

A great setting for a special gathering. Gondola ride, views, fire places and mountain rustic setting make this spot feel like a page from a Ralph Lauren holiday catalogue. But the gorgeous, fantasy-like setting is matched by great food, drinks and service! So many interesting food choices that several family members created meals with small plates and appetizers. GF modifications... More

Better to go before sun goes down so you can see the view, get there early to try to get a spot in swanky bar with live music. Ride gondola and get off halfway to telluride. Nice food - great wine list.

My wife and I decided to sit at the bar for drinks and ended up with some apps. We could not get a reservation due to lack of pre planning, oops. The bar was nice but the views were great. Good, friendly service. Very good drinks, and apps. Full menu was available for the bar. Kids are welcome with parents... More

Finally, Allred's has food and service to match the best view in North America. For far too long, this landmark restaurant skated by on stunning scenery. But, putting Mario in as GM was a genius move that has diners reaping the rewards. Wait staff is knowledgeable and pleasant without being overbearing, and there is finally a chef in the kitchen...

$30 to $50 entres, $13 kids burger, $35 Italian White. $340 for a family of 5 with deserts and wine (Telluride is very expensive), but it seemed like a good value. Once of the best meals of 2016 for me. The elk loin, pork chop, tenderloin and salmon were fantastic, a fun noisy enthusiastic room, very nice architecture, and great... More

Wonderful setting, best in telluride. Food is average at expensive prices. Service is awful with either brand new servers or grouchy hosts. Worth going to, but expect very little and you will have a good time.
