It doesn't get any better than Allred's!

What an incredible restaurant. Make your reservations early (don't wait till the last minute) as the place gets busy on weekends. Impeccable service, and great food. View is awesome. Mario, the general manager, works very hard and goes around to meet most of the guests. We will be back!!

Free gondola ride can take you from either Telluride or Mountain Village to the Saint Sophia Gondola Middle Station, where you will find Allred's Restaurant, which is a private club during the day, and open to the public for Dinner in the PM. Best Veal and Pork Chop meals in memory. Great views of the Telluride valley below. Five-Star service... More

Every time that we visit Telluride, i mean every year this restaurant is the spot, great views, the service from the host ladies ANNA, ERIKA, the server LAURA and the bartenders IGNACIO AND ZACH top notch, We usually enjoy Allreds 3-5 times during our stay. We know the Menu changed since the first time we tried Allreds 9 years ago.... More

We didn't eat here, but stopped on the way to town for a drink. Great view and the inside was very cozy. Much nicer than I was expecting for a place located directly on the mountain. Next time we will have to try dinner! Good drink menu, though.

Have eaten in the bar and restuarant and the food quality is consistently very good. Katie is a super friendly sommelier and Mario is a great person who cares about the guests.

Went here for Apres ski and it is a very nice and fun place. The bartenders were great and had a wide selection of great whiskey and bourbon and cocktail menu. We had some appetizers as well which were great! The view and atmosphere is hard to beat!

Okay, it's a little pricey, but worth every penny. You ride the gondola from Telluride up to the St. Sophia station. We enjoyed fine cuisine including top chef side dishes and traditional meats ... but I highly recommend the elk. It was fabulous! The view is incredible, looking down on the town of Telluride. Even at night, the view is... More

Just enjoyed a great dinner at Allred. Top of the mountain. We were here in the dark, but you can get an idea of how spectacular the views are. Wonderful food. Wonderful. Particularly the elk and the potato croutons. This is a must visit in Telluride.

When in Telluride don't miss the opportunity to dine at 10,500'. Impeccable service, outstanding cuisine all while overlooking the town of Telluride 1800' below. We arrived at 5:00 pm and ordered wine by the glass from Allred's wine list. We purposely made an early, 5:30 reservation for the first available seating in hopes of snagging a window seat. We were... More
