A Reliably Good Restaurant

We visit Ouray every year or two and try to make one of our Dinners at the Bon Ton. For the past 20+ years the Wine list has been stellar, the service courteous and the food delicious. This year was no exception. The Bon Ton continues to be my #1 restaurant in Ouray.

We arrived about 6:30 on a Sunday evening and were immediately seated. They have both outdoor seating and in the restaurant (in the basement of a hotel); we chose the basement as the weather was threatening. The room was cosy and comfortable. The service was correct (not too fast or slow). I had the Pork Tenderloin Picatta and my wife... More

My husband enjoyed his chicken piccata, but my salmon special was overlooked and unappetizing. The service was very attentive. Overall a disappointment for the value.

After a day of hiking or shopping, this is a wonderful place to unwind and catch your breath. It is located in an old home and has separate rooms to dine in, so the noise level is very muted. It makes for a great place to have good conversation. It took a while to get our entrees, but we snacked... More

Passing up the opportunity to dine on the outdoor patio, we went into the basement dining room for what we hoped would be a good Italian dinner, Things looked promising – nice atmosphere, mostly-standard Italian offerings, and somewhat pricey offerings that suggested some quality food here. Unfortunately, the food was bland, a bit gooey, and uninspired. From the eggplant that... More

We went to all the highly rated restaurants in Ouray (from TripAdvisor and Yelp) and Bon Ton was by far the best. We asked locals where they went to eat and Bon Ton was mentioned far more often than others. We were not disappointed with either the food or the service. Everything in Ouray is pricey, but at least at... More

I was staying in Ouray for the week and didn't feel like cooking just fr myself so I decided to treat myself to what I was told was the best restaurant in town. I arrived at the Bon Ton at 6 PM to an empty outside patio on an overcast Monday night and when I was greeted by the Maitre... More

Outstanding meal! This was the best restaurant meal I've had in a while. The ravioli with crab and artichoke was excellent. We had the smoked salmon appetizer and it was very good. I just wish it wasn't almost 300 miles away!

We made reservations at Bon Ton the day prior to my birthday. We wanted a special place to have a nice dinner in Ouray. It did not disappoint. Excellent service, fantastic food, and drinks. A little in the pricey side, but worth it for something special.
