We have been going to Telluride for three years now and have eaten at ALL of the nice restaurants. All of the big names (Cosmopolitan, 221 Oak, etc., have been great one visit- and just ok the next). It wasn't until we wandered into the Telluride Bistro (for dessert and coffee) that we felt like we found some place that... More

This is a great restaurant because if the weather is nice (Summer, Spring), you'll be able to dine outdoors on a patio. They offer blankets just in case the air is chilly, and I love that feature. A great place to people watch everyone walking up and down Main Street in Telluride town. The food is great, and the service... More

It's not a big place, but your taste buds will be living large! Service, ambiance and delicious pasta, this bistro has it all! It is conveniently located along the main drag with indoor and outside seating (weather permitting).

Order the specials and you can't go wrong. Pasta was well flavored, but a little overcooked. Excellent soups!

When I see "bistro" I think "basic down to earth." So when I took my first look at the menu, I was surprised. In a good way. The descriptions of the dishes bespoke a serious kitchen. And the food supported it in every way. This is a kitchen that does wonderful things with vegetables, whether they're accompanying perfectly cooked salmon... More

For some atmosphere they placed several hummingbird feeders around the outside patios. This results in a constant dive bombing of fighting little critters vying for sugar water against swarms of bees and wasps. Who thought this was a good idea?? The food was tremendously overpriced. The service was curt and prickly. The wine, $12/glass, was ordinary. They acted like we... More
