Best fondue I’ve had in ages and the staff is incredible. It is a must stop while in Telluride. Very quaint place you can easily miss if you aren’t paying attention. Glad we found it!

We went on a Sunday night but some of all party were late. So we had time to study the menu. It is true the prices are in range of other fondue restaurants. But the Alpinist is rather expensive for what you receive. I didn't...More

We eat out a lot when we visit Telluride so we know every restaurant. Every time we eat here the server is in your face to take your order, but no where to be seen when you need something. Some decent waiter training would go...More

3/5 looks like a harsh rating, please don’t take it that way. If a place is just bad, I have no problem crucifying them in the review. Is there some improvement to be had? Yes absolutely. Are they capable of making it? Yes, absolutely. The...More

The food here is great but don't expect linen napkins. First, you're skiing, you want raclette or fondue. This place is your jam. The food is great. The bread is crispy, the cheese is melty, the dessert bar is awesome. I left stuffed and happy....More
