We got to stay in Ouray for over a week and half. We all visited the Bon ton about 4 times. It is the best place in Ouray to eat. We were glade to see familiar faces ( Chris and Julie). The Hose salad and soup are to die for. I had the beef Wellington cooked perfect. We will be... More

Our previous experience at Bon Ton was not a good one. That was nearly four years ago, so we decided to give this spot another shot - we're glad we did. We were only up for appetizers and drinks, so we sat at the bar. Chris, the owner, happened to be tending bar and waited on us. He greeted us... More

We visited the Bon Ton with our extended family (group of 11) for dinner. We made reservations and our table was promptly ready upon arrival. Our waitress was sweet, efficient and knowledgeable about the menu. She was incredibly patient with a fussy baby in our group and took great care of us throughout the meal. The food was delicious and... More

Just had dinner at the Bon Ton after a day of rafting. Fabulous meal, impeccable service in the "cellar" of the historic St. Elmo Hotel. We had heard how good it was for the last three days and finally gave in and are we glad we did. My wife had the lasagna which was perfectly prepared with slightly crunchy top... More

My husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary at Bon Ton in Ouray. We read wonderful reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to make a reservation at this lovely Italian restaurant. The Bon Ton is located downstairs in the St. Elmo Hotel. It appears the restaurant has outdoor seating, but we chose to sit inside. The ambiance was very... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary and decided to splurge a little and have dinner at Bon Ton. My husband ordered lasagna and I ordered tortellini carbonara. Quite frankly....both dinners were "OK".... "But, nothing to write home about"! Unfortunately, I could have easily made better as there was nothing special about either dish. Also, my husband...

We decided to visit Ouray, CO and were blessed to stumble upon this restaurant. The atmosphere, service and food were all fantastic. I had the chicken piccata and it was really delicious...perfectly cooked chicken, lovely butter, lemon and caper sauce all accompanied by pasta and green beans almondine. And to top off a great meal...bread pudding. So, so good!

We had a wonderful meal at Bon Ton. Everything was fresh and piping hot when it reached the table. We had the most excellent service from Mary Pat! We ordered the chicken parmesan, spaghetti with pesto, tuscan chicken pasta, an order of garlic bread and a bottle of zin. Everything was excellent! Highly recommended.
