Not only is the food delicious here at Allred's but you cannot beat the views. Try to go before sunset so you can see out the large windows and view the beautiful mountains. There's a fun charm to being able to ride the Gondola up to the top of the mountain and get off and enjoy this delicious restaurant. Sometimes... More

Allred's was amazing. The food and service were great. We had 4 adults and a one year old child. The staff was very helpful and the wine selection is second to none. I highly recommend Allred's for the views also. It is at the top of the mountain and the views of telluride are the best you can get.

Allreds at the top of the mountain offers an unparalleled dining experience. Staff is professional, cocktails are interesting, food is inspiring. But its the view from the bar and dining area that can't be beat. While you relax and dine, you'll enjoy spectacular views of the Town of Telluride, San Sophia Ridge, and end of the valley. A not-to-be-missed experience... More

Allred's is a must stop. If you aren't up for a speedy dinner, though you should be because the food is amazing, at least get an app and a drink in the bar. Great people, great atmosphere, must do while on T-ride.

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.
