Great food & service!

I have been here a few times & it was my choice for my birthday which is a very busy time in town! Marianna was our server & I can't say enough about how attentive she was! Everyone enjoyed their food & the birthday beignets were a nice treat!

We ate here our last night in Telluride and wished we had tried it sooner! I had the burrata appetizer and the duck as my main dish and both were delicious. My husband had the chopped salad and ahi tuna special and enjoyed both as well.... They do have a children's menu which was a nice surprise, we were a... More

Overall outstanding dining experience. The kids were able to order off the "young adult menu." The food on both the adult and kids menu was outstanding. The service was outstanding as well.

I dined here with my son over Memorial weekend. Food was good. When it came time to pay the bill, the waitress accidentally ran my credit card for the check on another table (in the amount of $250+). It took me 3 phone calls to get it straightened out - and didn't get that money back into my account for... More

Dear Julie, Please accept my sincere apology for this gross error and undue hardship to you. We are so truly sorry. We had just instituted a new POS system and it has been a bit difficult for the staff. We would like to pay your overdraft fees. Please call the restaurant so that we can make this right for you....

Creative delicious food! The sashimi plates were to die for. Duck with ramen was unique in its combination of flavores and very light. Great wine list too!

Worth the money and after spending two weeks in Telluride the food at this restaurant does not compare to anywhere else! The service was excellent and the ice... More

i would not go here during non-happy hour times. it is quite expensive but if you go during the low season and catch happy hour make it a stop. i heard the cosmos were amazing but we did order one. instead we got the smoked salmon (drool), spider roll, and marlin roll ($9 per roll). i would definitely not pay...

This stylish spot sits directly opposite the gondola in the city of Telluride and the restaurant deserves its prime spot. Even on the day after opening for the season the service was fluid and the food created by seasoned hands. Our appetizers were the calamari as well as the lobster corndogs, and while we'd recommend both the latter was inventive... More

With its location just across the street from the gondola, and its great food, this is our favorite choice during MountainFilm. The sushi portions are small for the price, but very good. You gotta try the Lobster Corn Dog.
