The views of Telluride are amazing. The service was horrible. Ordered drinks and an appetizer. Drinks were good but overpriced. The appetizer took 45 minutes to arrive. Skip Allreds. Ride the gondola to Mountain Village for the view. It's free. Eat at Cosmos or the Chop House instead.

The restaurant is located at the top of the gondola station in Telluride, Colorado. Because it is on top of the mountain, the views from the restaurant's large windowns down to the valley are simply fantastic. Often I have found that the better the view in a restaurant, the lower the quality of food and the higher the price. This... More

This restaurant is accessible from Telluride or the Mountain Village via the Gondola and the views of town and the surrounding mountains are fantastic. Therefore, it is very expensive. After eating there a few years ago, we decided never again, but this time we ate in the bar, which offers a casual menu with more reasonable prices. You can also... More

The experience begins with a short lift in the Gondola, the setting is superb, dining looking down on Telluride as the sun goes down is amazing. Great food and service, Luca's Italian added a warm touch!

The view of all the mountains surrounding Telluride is gorgeous. I'm a big bread fan, and Allred's served a very nice basket of warm fresh bread and large seasoned crackers. Our dinners were first rate. We both had the wild Columbia River Salmon, on top of purple fingerling potatoes and with a golden raisin sauce, some other white sauce, and... More
