Unique menu, always changing

I really like this restaurant, and often go when we have guests in town, or occasionally go eat at the bar--just because they are so friendly. Sure there are a few things that could be improved (their bread, for example.) But the soups are always great-- we had the onion soup--ample amount and... read more

We had a wonderful dining experience at Telluride Bistro during our visit this past weekend. This place was recommended by friends who are locals and it did not disappoint. Warm, cozy atmosphere with a small bar area to wait for your table. Calling ahead is suggested as the restaurant is not large and gets filled up. Nice wine list with... More

We decided to have lunch here after cruising up and down main street a couple of times. Nice, friendly servers and the patio was nice. I had Caesar salad with grilled salmon and I forgot what my wife had but we both enjoyed it.

We had a very delicious and restful dinner here after a hard day of driving, really the best Italian restaurant food we've eaten in a long time. The chicken picatta (?) (they call it something else, but it's the classic lemon, wine and capers preparation) was outstanding, a generous portion with well-prepared potatoes and veggies. My husband's mushroom and sausage... More

We used to love this place a couple of years ago. However now they have raised all the prices and made all the portions smaller. The food is only fair at best. The staff is snobby. Check your bill carefully, because he pricing rings up more that what their already expensive menu reads. Very disappointing. We are locals and will... More

It was our last night visiting Telluride, the weather was wonderful, and we wanted to sit outside. I had seen the twinkling lights and red umbrellas earlier in the day so Telluride Bistro was our choice. We sat on the patio, and they provided red lap blankets in case you got chilly, which I thought was a great idea. The... More
