I had a really nice time visiting this restaurant over the Thanksgiving weekend. We sat at the bar and ordered the happy hour sushi and cosmos. Very nice bartender was very obliging. Cosmos best ever. Sushi fresh and delicious.

We were in Telluride for our 20th anniversary during Thanksgiving weekend. Saturday night we stepped off the gondola in town and walked the half block to the front door of the Hotel Columbia.

We stayed at the Hotel Columbia, where this restaurant is located. The guide in our room stated the time the restaurant closes. We entered the restaurant 1 hour prior to closing and the Bartender who was clearly annoyed barked at us that the kitchen was closed and they would not serve us. We were still in the doorway as he...

Every dish brought to our table was a perfect 10, including the bread basket! We were but so fortunate to be seated at a table across from the new pastry chef ,Sadie, who was but so humble in not having it known that she was THE pastry chef (our waiter had called her out after we raved about the bread)....

Wow...my wife was not impressed with her ribeye...salty and overly fatty. My surf and turf was just ok and a bit salty as well. The cosmos were excellent and the staff was... More

It is pricy for the amount of food you get, but delicious. They have a great happy hour special. The atmosphere is wonderful during the summer and winter and they make a mean Cosmo martini.

There was nothing to dislike about this restaurant. My seared tuna and Fat Tire beer made for a wonderful meal. Mark, the GM, came by the table to see how our meal was and I always like to see that level of concern. I would go back again in a heart beat.
