Bon Appetit!

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... read 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!

2015 Valentines dinner was great! Staff and all courses of the meal were fantastic. The breaded salmon was new for us, and we highly recommend it.

Wise to have reservations during busy weeks -- very intimate setting in basement of historic hotel. Sunday brunch is delicious after church treat -- waffles, omelets, quiche, filet -- all top quality & delicious.

I certainly don't mind paying for excellent food. The New Years Eve meal was phenomenal. Rack of Lamb was cooked and seasoned to perfection. My wife and son had the filet. It was excellent. The bread pudding was incredible as was the black nasty for desert. Service is always top notch here. The quality of the food is a surprise... More

I had the seafood pasta - my husband had the canneloni. Superb! Delicious coffee drinks on a cold night - service was exemplary. Highly recommend!
