The order was incorrect, the salads were wilty and the pasta was very bland. Based on the previous reviews I was expecting much more. I'd try another place.

If you thought that Ouray was too small or informal to have truly fine dining, I’d submit to you that Bon Ton restaurant will prove otherwise. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is very nice and service is wonderful. I doubt that you’ll be disappointed.

Had Kittie's Cannelloni which was an excellent choice and we were able to split. Bread and butter was very good. Waitress was very nice. Service was a little slow but that was probably because they were very busy. Little pricey but good.

In a town where burgers abound, it was nice to find a quality option to enjoy for dinner during the 6 days I recently spent in Ouray. The food at the Bon Ton was so refreshing I returned there on three different occasions. I was...More

Yes, this is a pricey place to eat, but it is so worth it for a night out. Service was top notch and everyone at our table enjoyed every part of their meal. Get the mussels as an appetizer!
