I treated my husband to a birthday dinner here. Everything is just delicious, prepared with local ingredients. This is our favorite restaurant.

We loved 221 after our first meal. We ate there everyday and chef Eliza was fantastic! Can't wait to go back and try the brunch!

221 has been a regular dinner date for us ever since we started coming to Telluride in 2009 and it never disappoints. Eliza Gavin is a creative chef who produces a unique menu that has something for everyone - even a full vegetarian menu - and the quality and presentation is first class. Service is always friendly and efficient and the casual, intimate ambience is wonderful. Tonight I started with the winter soup duo - Carrot & Ginger and Potato & Leek, artfully presented in the same bowl, followed by a perfectly cooked Rocky Mountain Elk and finished off with Bruleed Custard Cake with almonds and goji berries. It is exceptional value for the quality - less than $200 for four of us (9 courses between us) excluding wine and grats. One of my favourite restaurants anywhere and highly recommended.

221 S. Oak is a special dining spot in Telluride, Colorado. We have celebrated two anniversaries and a birthday here and the food and service is always just right! We'll go back for the fresh and unique food and small, intimate atmosphere.
