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

We went up to Allred's to have a drink and watch the sun set, but decided to have a light dinner instead since they had space in the dining room and the hostess was very kind to seat us in a nice romantic table for two. LIght dinner was a joke! We ordered the Truffle Fries appetizer and it was... More

Allred's was a wonderful place to eat. You ride to the top of the mountain in the Gondola and walk over to the restaurant. You then take an elevator up to the top of the building. We were seated in a corner with an amazing view of the mountains as well as the town below. The servers were very attentive... More

The staff was friendly and the views were amazing! The food was good. The tuna, chocolate covered strawberries, and prime rib were outstanding. The wedding cake and some other things were not impressive.

If you are going to Telluride, you must stop here, even if just for a snack or drink. The views are breathtaking! Go early, the seats in the bar are 1st come 1st serve and the tables by the windows fill up quickly. The service was great too!

First, it is pricey. But you are in a resort setting at 10,500' with an amazing view, great food and service to match. Save up and go there. The food was prepared well, very tasty. The chicken was the most moist ever had at a restaurant that was cooked well through... Wild Alaska Halibut was well prepared exactly the way... More
