On August 18, 2016, we had 6:30 pm reservations for eight. Good thing, because the place filled up quickly. We had Mandy for a waitress, and she gave each of us guidance on the menu items and specialties. The Zolo Malbec wine was excellent and reasonably priced. I had spaghetti with meatball and sausage, and it was delicious. Each of... More

After a long travel day we asked our hotel receptionist for fine dining options in Ouray. She recommended Bon Ton. Although it is categorized as Italian, they have a fantastic menu, including the best Beef Wellington and the best pomegranate mojito I have ever had. Everyone in our family of 6 ordered a different entree. All of the dishes were... More

We visited the place after reading great reviews and i don't get it. Fettucine were overcooked in a lot of creamy sauce, nothing i would have expected from a supposedly higher end restaurant, service was friendly but we had to wait almost 20mins from the time we asked for our bill and the time we could actually leave. Wine was... More

Been 25 years since eaten there and everything still rates A+. Excellent service along with outstanding dinner entrees and choices. Pastas are served hot and delicious. Desserts to die for and even good coffee! I won't wait 25 years to go back

First ever trip here and we had a very large group of 16 people. The staff was very accommodating and we had a great space for all of us. Our waitress was super sweet and recommended great specials, even though My husband and I went with menu items, others in our group had the specials and were impressed by the... More

It started with reception: we didn't have reservations and she "moved things around" and seated us. We both had a glass of wine with the tasty bread and my wife had the fish special and I had chicken - both were excellent. Service was excellent and the young man who poured water and bussed tables was friendly and spoke well... More

WE ended up here after an unpleasant experience at another eating establishment. It was recommended by a local man. What a great turnaround experience this was. I really enjoyed the service, staff smiles, food and wine. It was good enough to return tonight. Just an all around good time.

We both had pasta dishes. Both were quite good. Nice sized portions. We'd come again in the future. Nice experience.

All of our food tasted good and the portions were large for their price. The service was good and the workers seemed genuine. Large restaurant with rustic atmosphere.

I was hopeful for this restaurant but was unimpressed. The service was not good and the food mediocre. Many other choices in this little gem of a town. I would choose any of the others and save some time and money.
