Sitting at the top of the gondola run, with enormous windows from the bar and dining room means constant enjoyment of the mountain scenery. Telluride sits at the bottom of the view and the various mountains are in view in every direction. The food was excellent and the staff was sophisticated as one would expect for a top of the... More

The location of this restaurant is so unique - it's an experience all by itself. The restaurant interior is beautiful also and felt warm and intimate. Seating is comfortable. The keyboardist who played throughout our meal was a lot of fun - wide variety of musical genres. The food was amazing. We ordered the mezze platter, Caesar salad (potato croutons!!!!),... More

So nice to hop off the gondola and enter this restaurant with the most spectacular views. We had a window table which was awesome. The salmon and black cod were wonderful. The wine list is quite pricey. Mario visited our table which is so nice for the manager to do. We enjoyed the view so much that we went back... More

Mario greeted with an 'Old World' way about him, very charming and inviting. The view was the best I've ever seen anywhere. The atmosphere was warm, the service was impeccable, the food was wonderful with a stunning presentation.

We ate at Allred's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I made reservations online and requested a window table. We were seated as soon as we arrived and had the best table in the house, as far as I'm concerned. The wine list was very extensive. The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was good, nothing spectacular but good.... More

Thinking we'd enjoy a top dollar meal, service and view, we had dinner here on a Tuesday evening. We were seated quickly at a table with a lovely view, however the table for 6 was so large that it made conversation almost impossible. We ordered 6 glasses of Prosecco to start and waited for 15 minutes to get them. Likewise,... More

We enjoyed our dinner there, but the food was not really exceptional. It seemed a bit overpriced and unimaginative, compared to other high-end restaurants that command top dollar. My duck breast was kind of dry and the lentils under it slightly undercooked. But the view was gorgeous and it was fun to go there. I just think that next time,... More

From the bar to the dining room the restaurant is beautiful. It is situated right off the first Gondola station. The black mojito was terrific, as was the ginger beer drink my friend ordered. The truffle fries were a fantastic appetizer to share. I was with a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed their entrees, the duck was perfect. Our... More

Located right off the gondola station, the setting I'm both bar and restaurant can't be beat. Go early to get a table by the window. Very friendly and attentive servers. Excellent food, outstanding lemon basil martinis, and fairly priced for an upscale restaurant. Mario the manager visited every table with more than just a check in. He was quite adept... More
