If travel for you is more around making memories with friends and family, there are better options. No complaints around the menu, services, and location...they just didn't seemed that interested in making YOUR time particularly special...the phrase "dialed it in" comes to mind...even if it was a birthday celebration.

Spectacular mountain top views and fine dining. What's not to love? A massive wine selection and the finest chefs in the nation, all at Gondola-accessed mountainside beauty.

A very chic restaurant, perhaps a little over serviced for our liking, but good simple food. Good wine and very friendly staff.

I didn't have great expectations of the food and service here, due to the location - it's an astonishing view from both the restaurant and the bar! I assumed it would be ok, leaving the view to keep visitors coming back. I was WRONG - the food and service were OUTSTANDING. We had several plates (elk, lamb) that we shared.... More

Visited Allreds while on a Ski Vacation in Telluride Colorado. Must say the ride to what is a world class restaurant on a free Gondola is different and spectacular. Allreds sits at over 10,000 feet and the views from their many spacious windows are simply amazing. Whoever thought that while sitting in the lounge waiting for our table in the... More

We sat at the bar for a drink and appetizer while enjoying the... More

We love this place. The staff make you feel at home. High marks to management and their lovely Som, Katie. Food is good by any standard, wine list is epic, views amazing and service is the best in telluride. Go, it's pricey but worth it.
