Incredible Views and Fantastic Food!

You can't beat eating at the top of the mountain! It was incredibly beautiful and the food was out of this world. Our waiter was great at recommending things, and the Chicken I had was fantastic! The entire staff was great, and this is a place I would HIGHLY recommend!!

We ate in the bar area, as we we were looking for more of a lite meal but wanted to enjoy a view. The bar menu is fairly small but the items we had were fantastic: mushroom soup, corn chowder, the cheese plate and their hamburger. We'd recommend all of these times. Our only complaint was the service, or we... More

My husband and I had the best meal of our stay in Telluride here. The view is breathtaking, the service warm and the food quite delicious. We shared a Caesar salad to start which I am still thinking about it was that good. Then came halibut and the salmon, both very fresh and well presented. We will definitely return on... More

Go up to the bar for a drink near sunset and see the alpenglow through the large windows. Great specialty drink selection. Dining room is spectacular, but dinner is quite pricy

Allred's was a great experience with some fine food. Our meals were not the best we have ever had at a top of the line restaurant, but were very good. The service by Angiel was excellent. Now the negatives. A wedding party had to be moved into the bar area from the outside due to the inclement weather. As a... More

View is excellent. Bar is fun, Food is average. I would consider this a stopover from town to mid-mountain, rather than a destination. Go to the bar, have a few drinks and take in the glorious view. Save your money for the Cosmopolitian, New Sheridan, or Alpino Vino.

We had seafood hors d'ouevres and drinks before sit down meal- shrimp, snow crab, lobster- all very good. Decor and atmosthere very nice. Don't know the prices.

Taking the FREE gondola up to Allred's on the mountain, was just the start of a wonderful evening. It was our first night in Telluride and the restaurant was recommended by hotel staff. We did not have reservations (needed even in summer) so we were initially seated in bar area to wait. Luckily it was still light out and we... More

This was definitely our best dining experience in Telluride. The location and views really cannot be matched. We went with our three young daughters and were treated very well. Really do appreciate Mario's attention. Wait staff was friendly, professional and very attentive. Most importantly, the food was quite good. The elk was probably some of the best I've and everything... More

This wonderful place is halfway up the gondola between town and Mountain Village. A terrific place for dinner or drinks and dessert. Maggie the bartender was awesome!! Mario the General Manager made the rounds to insure everyone's complete satisfaction. A very nice touch. They have a marvelous piano player/pianist named Bob who was absolutely fantastic. We liked this place so... More
