We enjoyed our first dinner so much that we booked for a second evening. The menu was very satisfying and all of our choices were amazing. The view is spectacular. The wines were excellent. Service was extremely efficient without being intrusive. This is your top spot for a special meal in Telluride. Loved it!

I made a reserve ration on Open Table for my husband's birthday. While being seated, by the window, I reminded the hostess that it was his birthday and that I wanted the check for the party. Our waitress was friendly, took our drink order, but was back for the food order before one of the drinks arrived. I felt rushed... More

My husband and I had dinner at Allreds and it was outstanding! We have been visiting Telluride for years and haven't had the opportunity to dine at Allreds. It was worth the wait - oh my!

I was excited to eat here from what I had heard from a few people and from what I read online. The food was decent but definitely not worth the cost. The best thing and only thing I could recommend was the crab cake which was very good, the entrée after that was money not worth spending.

Allred's was the highlight of our trip to Telluride. I had the beef tenderloin and it was honestly the best food I have ever put in my mouth. The meat was so tender and flavorful. I was a little disappointed because it was cooked a little more than I ordered, but it was still so juicy and delicious. My husband... More

I know now why this is the top rated restaurant in Telluride. We had two servers that always made sure we had everything we needed. The manager even came by the table to check on us. The food was to due for and its all fresh never frozen. I suggest getting the halibut and the berry cobbler for dessert. We... More

We weren't interested in eating a big dinner but wanted to enjoy a big view so we had drinks and appetizers in the bar. We had to wait for a table but the hostesses couldn't have been nicer. It's a must in Telluride. A fantastic view
