This is a great place for an elegant and delicious lunch break while skiing or for a romantic evening dinner overlooking the town of Telluride. The food and service are outstanding.

The setting for Allred's is spectacular! Either seeing Telluride lit up 1700 ft below or the alpenglow at sunset - the experience cannot be matched. The food is also up to the setting again. After a couple mediocre years, the chef and menu is back. Highly recommend some of the Miso fish entrees or pork.

Although we did not eat at Allred's, we enjoyed having a drink there to enjoy the view. Several people arrived after skiing to do the same. The ambiance is great and Cameron, out server was very attentive and friendly. I was totally impressed when he ran out to meet us at the Gondola station as I had accidentally left my... More

Reservations were recommended so for a large group of 9 the wait staff was well prepared for us and we had a great table by the fireplace with a view. Almost everyone ordered a different entree and everyone loved the dish they ordered. I think the favorite was the rack of lamb. Unfortunately they were out of the lobster bisque... More

We read a great review recommending Allred's for Thanksgiving with a recommendation of getting a window view and watching the sunset. We did just that and it did not disappoint. Gorgeous view! Extremely attentive staff but also kind and helpful with young children. The meal was beautifully presented and delicious.

Let's start with the beautiful gondola ride up to nearly 11,000 feet atop the slope where Allred's sits in the San Juan Mountains. We were greeted by a wonderful hostess team and sat right by the window looking down on the Town of Telluride. It is hands down the best view of Mother Nature I've ever had from a restaurant,...

My wife and I had a terrific dinner at a very romantic restaurant in Telluride. Allred's is located on the mountain with access only by the gondola car. We made our reservations plenty in advance so we were able to have a wonderful window table looking down into Telluride approximately 1500 feet below. Brian was our waiter and was clearly... More
