Just ate there and food was very cheap and very overpriced. All I got was a sandwich and the bread was stale, the avocado was brown and mushy! Yuck. Better food at a fast food place. The sandwich cost $17. Don't go there, plenty of better places to go.

This place serves Italian food, which we enjoyed on the patio one evening in early July. Beautiful view, and a perfect spot for people watching and relaxing after a day in town. They even provide blankets for when it gets a bit cool! Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was tasty, but we were disappointed with the wine... More

Their tagline is "Fine Italian Cuisine." It is very tasty and well prepared and presented. The catch is the price. We have just returned from a two week holiday in Italy. So we kinda had a recent taste bud tuning for fine Italian cuisine. These guys got that part correct. Good Italian food. As in Italy, these folks give you... More

First, this place has excellent atmosphere. We ate on the patio and couldn't have asked for a nicer setting. The house wine was excellent although a glass cost as much as a bottle at most wine stores. The food was pricey and the appetizer portion was very small. I had lasagna figuring it was a safe bet and my wife... More

The soft throws on all the outside chairs was a nice touch. I needed mine as the sun shifted. The wines were nice, service was excellent, food was good. The dessert menu was limited. The outside patio was lovely.

The Telluride Bistro offered a small but diverse menu. We enjoyed two of their pasta dishes and were very pleased. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. The restaurant had an intimate and comfortable feel to it. We would definitely come back!

Went here on a recent trip to Telluride for The Telluride Wine Festival. We were just passing by and saw the inviting patio. We looked at the menu and could not resist sitting down for dinner. The waitperson was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wines as well as being friendly and efficient. This was truly a very pleasant... More

The welcoming staff seated us for an early dinner in the charming outdoor patio area. There were a variety of unique cocktails made with fresh fruit. I had to decide between the martini made with fresh Blood Orange juice or the Prickly Pear margarita - I chose the latter and it was marvelous! Our Caesar salads were fresh, dressed just... More

I wanted to thank you for a wonderful dinner Saturday night. My wife and I came to Telluride for our anniversary and stayed Friday Saturday and Sunday at the Camels Garden, which we totally enjoyed. We wanted to go to a popular hotel restaurant Saturday night, but we did not have reservations. So we went early, believing that I could... More

We were in Telluride and saw the Bistro as we were walking down Colorado Ave. . The menu of the day had a few specials listed but what caught our eyes were a spinach salad as well as an eggplant parmesan. The Spinach Salad had a hard boiled egg, mushrooms,panchetta, monchego cheese and was served with a balsamic vinegrette dressing.... More
