We went to the Bon Ton to celebrate a birthday. This proved to be the perfect choice; an interesting diverse menu, great wine list, and heavenly desserts.

One of the appetizers recommended to us by an acquaintance was "escargot & crawfish tails" (nick-named "bugs and slugs".) Ignore the nick-name; everyone at the table absolutely LOVED them. All of our dinners (from steak to pasta) was spot one wonderful. The wine was perfect. And the dessert (a chocolate bread pudding) was out of this world.

So glad we found the place. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a fine dinner out in Ouray.

The Bon Ton is the finest restaurant in Ouray, Colorado. It specializes in Italian but has a gracious plenty of other choices. Our table enjoyed lasagna, canalonie, egg plant parmesan, and halibut. All were outstanding. We shared a little! The atmosphere was excellent and the no cell phone rule was greatly appreciated. We will make this a regular on future visits to Ouray.

Ambience great. Waiter great. Food could be better. Too many flavor a little too salty. Ideas for food great, but execution not as good. Wine good.

Those pessimists can trust the high online rating and travel guide recommendations. This is the real deal. The food, drinks, and the service were top notch. Unlike so many places that are over-staffed with under-trained "servers", the waiters/waitresses were on the top of their game, trained, and ready to make the evening special. I wish this place was at home. Prices were very reasonable. (Don't let the basement location at the historic St. Elmo Hotel scare you off. The basement location just added to the experience. Don't miss the hotel lobby. Small, but so lovely.)

Bon Ton offers great Italian food and quality table service. The setting is warm and inviting, too. Whether passing through or staying in Ouray, this is the place for a nice dining experience. The Italian dishes are tasty. They use the right amount of ingredients and do not over-salt or over-sauce the dishes, and this is coming from a traveler who spent considerable time in Italy earlier this year. Lastly, I had a tight schedule when at Bon Ton, as was dining after 9pm and still had to drive south another 4-5 hours. The staff was diligent in expediting my meal without compromising the quality. Grazie!
