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... read 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

We decided last minute to drive to Ouray from Silverton. We saw the good reviews and decided to try it. We had fettuccine and the filet. Both were excellent choices. The food was good and the service was good.

The Bon Ton Restaurant is located in Ouray's beautiful historic St. Elmo Hotel. Over the last 30 years, we've rarely visited Ouray without visiting the Bon Ton. The food is as good today - maybe better - than it was on our first visit. Certainly we've enjoyed many a dish but some of our very favorites include Roman Trilogy as... More

If you love Italian - eat here! Pasta, seafood and other great options. And DO try the Tiramisu. The wait staff is excellent and the place hasn't been changed since 1977, as I overheard one of the waiters telling other guests. Really cool place.

My wife and I went here in the fall of '14. They were pretty busy, and service was good. We never did get the specials, but over heard the waiter explaining the specials at the table next to us. I'm glad because the duck ravioli special was excellent. We also had a couple salads, Lamb entree and Duck entree. I... More

For some reason despite visiting Ouray we had never eaten here till this trip. Wow, we missed out on those other trips, for sure. Cozy atmosphere, well-prepared food delivered by servers that knew what they are doing.

This was one of the best meals we had on our honeymoon and just what we needed when we checked into Ouray! Classic, hearty Italian food but still upscale enough to make it romantic and memorable. Great service!
