First the outside summer dining is probably the nicest in town. The restaurant is a quaint seemingly French inspired spot with friendly fast service. We had a wonderful Friday lunch (only open Fridays for lunch) The soup special: a broccoli w/ short rib was exceptional as we're the salmon tacos, the salads and the carpaccio. We have returned for dinner... More

We stayed a July weekend in Telluride and found ourselves trying to find a place dine Saturday night without reservations. We were turned away from at least 4 restaurants, including the hotel restaurants, even a couple that were not full at all (!), because we (imagine!) did not have reservations. The attitude that went with these restaurants was a huge... More

Gastronomique Fantastique!!! Some nouveau French, some traditional, some seafood, some grills. My wife began with a musroom-cauliflower bisque which was excellent. I had the Bib Lettuce Caesar - also superb. My wife enjoyed the Trout Meuniere while the aged New York Strip Steak with a mushroom/onion/goat cheese reduction was absoutely fantastic! Coffee and creme brulee finished the meal. A must-stop... More

My son's rehearsal dinner was at La Marmotte. They did an exceptional job of serving 21 for dinner and 90 for dessert and drinks afterward. They kept glasses filled, served from a limited menu in a timely fashion, and had great food. We ate outdoors on the patio which gave us plenty of room to move around and mingle. The... More

La Marmotte is a great restaurant to dine at in Telluride with an excellent menu to choose from and great wine to pair items with. The muscles here are awesome as well.

This is hands down one of our favorite restaurants. We go every February for Valentines (sometimes not on Feb 14, but we have been there on the actual day, too). It is very romantic and the prix fixe menu is wonderful. I have only been with my husband, and we are always surrounded by exceptional service. We spent one evening... More

We dined at La Marmotte our last evening in Telluride. Despite uneven reviews, we really like French food and decided to give it a try. That particular night some of the staff was missing so there was a bit of difficulty in the service. Upon entering La Marmotte, it was apparent that the staff was quite busy, but no one... More

It was our anniversary dinner and overall, I would give the place a rating on the lower end of very good but above average. Our meal was quite good but the risotto needs some work; it lacked flavour. I had the lamb and it was cooked perfectly. My husband had beef and it too was cooked perfectly. The wine selection... More

Been to Telluride 4 times since 2000. We've always avoided La Marmotte, as we're not huge fans of French food, which tends to be lots of cream and butter. This year - we decided to give it a try. OMG what have we been missing. Divine Food. Truly one of the best meals of our lives. We couldn't get a... More

We had a great time! We had to wait a bit for our 8:15 reservation, but once seated everything was flawless. Nice Prix Fixe menu for $54. Wonderful wines. Very cozy ambiance and not too loud even with our party of 8. Would go back. The squash soup was terrific, loved the addition of the tomatillos. At our table, we... More
