I had dinner with friends at Allred's recently, and we were all disappointed. Although the view from this restaurant is lovely, the service was very slow and the food was average, at best. We recommend that you go to Allred's bar for a drink and the view...not for dinner. We were under-whelmed!

The service and food were exceptional! We had one of the best tables in the house at the window overlooking the town of Telluride! We were able to talk to the manager who is very active in ensuring everything about your experience is attended to!

If you go to Allreds make sure you don't eat for at least a few hours beforehand. Filling, excellent food

We stay at Telluride many times but finally tried Allred's. The food was great and the service was good. My wife had veal and I had the pork chop. Both were excellent.

We went to Allred's with high expectations and were a little disappointed. The ambiance is very nice, the wine list is extensive but the number of dishes on the menu is very limited. It's a nice place to have dinner but a little overpriced.

First, you take the gondola up to the top of the mountain. Hard to beat the view already. Then, you have elevator service to a beautiful glass entry. The restaurant itself is a very tiny bit dated and could use a touch up. The food was spectacular. We had the tenderloins, of which I have had many in very nice... More

Had breakfast and lunch here. Breakfast was buffet style and had dozens of options. Wasn't too crowded. Lunch was great and was served very quickly for our party of 12.

We stopped into Allred's for a ski break and the view is amazing. Also the staff is accommodating, friendly and attentive--thanks Cameron, Hunter and Lauren. They made our day! Recommend the truffle fries, the potatoes and the hamburger (of course!) .
