Allreds 10/10. The Colorado lamb chop is a must. It was the most tender, flavorful lamb I've ever had. The ambiance and view is spectacular. I do recommend getting there early to see the sunset. It's very beautiful and romantic especially if u r seated near the window. It's a bit pricey but definitely worth it!

First off...the only way up is the free gondola which is really nice! There were four of us and we had the tuna, pork chops, veal and the crab cake with the butternut squash soup....all of it was amazing. The potato croutons were good and the edamame was divine! The flourless chocolate cake and crème brûlée was wonderful. The oddity... More

The food is amazing at Allred's. One of the finest restaurants in Telluride. Beautiful setting and wonderful service. Get a drink by the fire after dinner to top off a wonderful dinning experience. A must go if you are visiting the area.

You get in the town Gondola to go to this restaurant. It was cold and the gondola service provided blankets. We had to wait to be seated in the bar area, which has a fantastic view of the mountains, but not enough seating. At dinner I had a chicken dish, which was ok. The service was less than spectacular because... More

I was looking forward to this meal for a month. It was our second night in telluride. We were hungry and tired from skiing all day. Upon arrival out of the gondola, we walked through the lobby into what felt like a furnace. All the fireplaces were on and I think the thermostat must have been set to somewhere around... More

You pay for the whole experience at Allred's! Really, the experience begins when you step in the gondola and the views just keep getting better all the way to allred's dining room. The place is gorgeous, the food is excellent, and service is five star. MAKE RESERVATIONS.

Where can you ride a gondola to 10,500', get off and walk into a glass walled bar and restaurant looking down at Telluride. It really doesn't matter why you go there....for drinks before dinner downtown or dinner there, it is all worth it. Just a must to go. The bar menu is fun and the cocktails are a good pour.... More
