“Great views come with a price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

The place is nice, you have to take your boots to get in. The views are stunning, the quality of the food is good but the price is very high, but keep in mind the location.

“Oustanding dinner, superb lunch, awesome views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

This is a must-see, must-visit in Telluride. Your concierge can make dinner reservations and can also secure one of the limited reservations for lunch, when Allred's is an exclusive private club. Dinner at Allred's is an experience, with the breathtaking views of Telluride a thousand feet below. And as well, during lunch. We came over and had superb service, awesome views and outstanding faire. Well worth the expense.

“Skip this over priced tourist trap”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

This is the kind of restaurant that sounds good on the website and looks promising when you first enter...then everything goes downhill from there. You've been there before, right. Not one of us in our party of four left satisfied and we all promised never to go back (with one exception below). Service was really slow and really bad. Wine list was very over priced. Our entree order was lost. No apologies of any kind from waiter or manager who stopped by while those around us who came later got their entrees. Then, the food was down right awful once it got to us. The flavors were all off putting. Meat was over cooked or under cooked. We did not dare send anything back after the long wait. Telling was the rest of the week on gondola rides with locals who only spoke of the nice bar scene there. If you want the view, I suggest dropping in for one drink and then keep going on the gondola down to town.

“DON'T MISS THIS PLACE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

If you're in Telluride, don't miss this restaurant. It's one of the most amazing meals you'll have, and the restaurant has the best views ever. Go at sunset. You get there by gondola, there's a great wine list. Great service.

“The Grizzly Pear”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Best happy hour Martini on the mountain. Mario is a welcoming host and the view is a tough one to beat.
