Generous pours of wine and drinks from the bar. Comfortable ambience, but my eggplant parmesan was chewy and disappointing. Decent salads come with dinner. I want to give them another try.

We booked the Bon Ton for a family event for 30 people. Taryn and her husband were great to work with! Everyone loved their meal! We had several guests that have done extensive traveling and they commented on what a gem this p,ace was! The food was very high in quality and taste and the service was impeccable! Can't wait...

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Ouray, Colorado and I have always enjoyed my meals there. Try their eggplant parmigiano or other tasty Italian dishes.

Delicious! Good decor. The bread and herbal butter was a perfect pair for the meal. The creamy parmesan salad was over the top amazing. Great place!

the food was good, but the prices were on the high end and for the price I would have expected a higher quality.

What has a French name, serves Italian cuisine with way too much Mexican garlic and is owned, accordingly to our waiter, by an American owner? You guessed it, it's BonTon. Both mushrooms and snails as appetizers swim in the exactly same heavily garlicky sauce. The salmon was excellent and came cooked exactly as requested but the pasta was so mushy... More

Our server was very honest with us, telling us yes, light eaters should consider sharing an entree. She even let us order (as seniors) from the children's menu (although she told us some servers would not do this). My husband had the children's size lasagne which was perfect. I tried a Cobb salad which also worked well. Food was well... More
