In a small town like Ouray, one would not expect to find a high end restaurant with such great food... great for special occasions or just treating yourself. It has more of an Italian flair but multiple items on the menu such as fish and Beef Wellington. Service is always very good and the atmosphere is 'cozy' as it is... More

We have been coming to the Bon Ton at least once a year for the past 15 years. Always a treat and food is wonderful. I had the fillet and it was fabulous.

We made reservations for our 45th wedding anniversary. We had come here for our 40th and knew this was where we wanted to go this time as well. I had planned to try their specialty, the Beef Wellington, but the specials for today were too tempting. I had the seafood special. The salmon was so tender it melted in my... More

We went here for my birthday dinner & it was delicious! We had the bread & butter, clam chowder, Caesar salad, Chicken Piccata, and the Tortellini Carbonata - and nothing disappointed! We also got there probably 10-15 before closing and they had no problem seating us and not rushing us out the door which was much appreciated in a tiny... More

In the winter, there are not a lot of restaurants in Ouray to choose from (especially in December). We had dinner three different evenings at the Bon Ton. We highly suggest the Duck, Homemade Ravioli, the Pork Chop, and their pizzas (all of them were incredibly delicious).

We have been have eaten here about 25 times over the years and have never had a bad meal. The service is great which is rare in Ouray. My favorite is the lamb chops, my wife likes the pasta dishes. It is on the expensive side but worth it. Most places in this town are on the expensive side but... More

The evening started out awesome because we were able to walk to the Bon Ton Restaurant while it was snowing. We are from Houston, Texas so it was an awesome experience. We had reservations so we were seated immediately. We had an excellent waiter even though he had the whole room and was really busy. We ordered the Prime Rib... More
