Upscale and delicious

This restaurant has the nicest ambiance in Ouray, with choice of booths or lovely cloth covered tables, an upscale and well stocked bar with a variety of martinis and specialty drinks also available. The food is fantastic!

The Bon Ton restaurant is unlike any other restaurants in the area. We attempted to have dinner our first night, but found out they were booked with reservations. We instead made our reservation for our last night, and we were not disappointed. Service was quick and very attentive. We enjoyed the Smoked Salmon as an appetizer, and the New England... More

We went here based on a recommendation. The food was plentiful but not great in our opinion. Good but not great. Service, however, was great. We had eggplant Parmesan and chicken Parmesan. The spinach/cheese topping was hard to cut, and the sauce was rich. We felt it was too "fancy"; we prefer a more traditional dish. Also, the chicken was... More

We tried this based on other reviews and were not disappointed. We had the cannelloni and our friends had the angel hair pasta with pesto. All were very happy. Service was great.

We dined at several well known establishment in town and Bon Ton is very hard to beat for its very affordable food quality and friendly atmosphere. A perfect way to end a hard day on the remarkable 4x4 trails surrounding the beautiful town of Ouray. Be sure to stop in! WNC

My husband and I planned our special anniversary dinner at the Bon Ton. Neither of us had been there for years and were hoping it was still as good as ever. The answer is an unqualified yes! Great wine list, great Italian fare, good service, decent atmosphere. Try Kittie's Cannelloni...oh my goodness! My husband had the Shrimp Scampi, which is... More

This evening I had one of the best meals out that I have had in months, including meals in highly rated restaurants in New York, Boston, Chicago, and DC- and it was in a tiny little restaurant in Ouray, Colorado. I'm only sorry I am only in town one day or I would have made reservations for the rest of... More

We came the night before to sit at the bar and have a drink and made a reservation for the following evening as the local shopkeepers told us it was the best place in town. They sat us at the best table, and then began the most amazing meal. The waiter claimed the clam chowder was the best and he... More
