Delicious meal, average service, the swordfish special was excellent. Bathroom stalls are cozy especially if you are tall.

My parents were visiting from out of town and my son had been dying to try the Italian restaurant in Ouray so they decided to treat us to a meal there. Overall, we enjoyed our meal although my son was very disappointed in their spaghetti which is what he would eat everyday if given the opportunity. I also did not... More

We've been coming to the Bon Ton for many years and have never been disappointed. The escartgot & crawfish appetizer, the bread, the salad & soup, the pastas and especially the Beef Wellington - all consistently terrific. Nice wine list and cocktail selection. Make reservations - its often crowded...because its SO GOOD!

The Bon Ton is hands down the best restaurant in Ouray. We were lucky enough to spend the summer in this great town and we enjoyed many wonderful dinners from the menu including Beef Wellington, Roast Duckling, Filet Mignon, Fettuccini Alfredo with Scallops and Shrimp to name a few. Chef Tim's creations and specials are so delicious and every meal... More

We've eaten at the Bon Ton in years past and have always enjoyed their food. But the downstairs dining room makes me a big claustrophobic, so we chose to sit outside on the patio, which had about 8 tables. Glad we did! It was quiet, and we watched the sun go down on the cliff walls that surround Ouray. The... More

Highly recommended by a friend who had been to Ouray the previous mointh on a family vacation. Certainly did not disappoint. Not a cheap place but well worth the extra price in service and quality. It was by far the best eating establishment we had the oportunity to eat at in Ouray. would not hesitate to recommend to others.

I had the pork tenderloin parmesan and wife had pork piccata. Both were excellent. The salad was somewhat mundane but the main course was absolutely great. I think our waitress must have been new. She was nice and seemed to be trying hard but lacked punctuality (our salads arrived just before our entrees) and was having a hard time keeping... More

After a 7.5 hr drive from Granby we were very hungry. The proprietor of the China Clipper B&B suggested this place as being one of the best in town. It is a very short walk and ended up being a great dinner with great service. Great start to our Ouray escapade.

All but two in my party of six were disappointed by their meals. Usually the ratings on Trip Advisor can be trusted to produce a great restaurant, but not this time. The pasta dishes were mediocre, but the corn leek soup was very good. Overall, I don't believe we would revisit this restaurant.

We stopped here for dinner based on other Trip Advisor recommendations and we were not disappointed. The service was great, the food just as great. We were four and were seated promptly and our order taken right away. We had eggplant parmesan, chicken parmesan, and pork piccata. All the dishes were excellent and we had no complaints at all. Well... More
