Delicious food, but waitress a bit off

We drove the San Juan Skyway, and stopped for lunch at the Telluride Bistro. The weather was pleasant, and so we sat outside. We both ordered the Rigatoni Bolognese -- a somewhat small portion for $18, but I recognize it is Telluride AND the Rigatoni was delicious. The waitress seemed... read more

Telluride Bistro is my idea of an excellent restaurant. The food is wonderfully well prepared in classic styles, without insisting on being trendy or different from anything else you have ever eaten. It is simply consistently excellent which allows me to concentrate on my friends or just to watch the alpenglow at sunset. The menu is designed for a full... More

Simply Terrific. Chef Sergio, trained in Europe and Japan, is Telluride's best. The fish dishes are very very good.

Right in the heart of town, this is a nice place with outdoor seating to watch the world go by. Good bread and pasta dishes and friendly staff. Dogs allowed on patio.

Telluride has a lot of great places to dine - this one's a bit on the pricey side but worth it if you're in the mood to splurge.

Was looking for healthy salads. Stumbled upon this place. Liked the fact they served Organic chicken. salads were ok, definitely fresh but wasn't the best I ever had. Service was ok. Waitress was overwhelmed and even though my salad came out incorrect I thought it was ok. The bread sucked. The bruschetta was not worth the $9.

We enjoyed our meal at Telluride Bistro. The food was very good with straightforward presentations. I had a chicken parm which I thought was quite tasty. The salad was ok but not exceptional. The food was not as inventive as some of the other restaurants in town. The food and service at Telluride Bistro would place it as the top... More

We came with our large family for dinner during our visit to Telluride. When we arrived, we were seated at a table that was somewhat small for our party. The restaurant is very small...VERY small and very loud. Here's our thoughts: Appetizers - the bruschetta was delicious Entree - we ordered the lamb ISO buco, the lemon chicken, the linguine...

We have eaten here on four different trips to Telluride over a 6 year period. Each time it has been excellent. It is small so reservations are smart. Tonight I had squash blossoms lightly fried in a tempura batter and filled with blue crab and cream cheese. Wait staff is very knowledgeable. Nice wine list. Chef is very flexible if... More
