I was surprised by the size of the menu and the wide range of offerings. We were a big group so we tried a number of the entrees and salads and the food was great. The bur rata and heirloom salad was delicious. The multiple tenderloin options were all great. The menu is reasonably priced for a nice restaurant in a ski town.

Food was very creative and delicious. Reasonably priced for the area. Trees and lighting make the outdoor patio a beautiful and peaceful dining experience.

We made 6:00 reservations for our anniversary dinner at 221 South Oak after we checked out their menu the previous day. The hostess welcomed us with a happy anniversary greeting and quickly seated us. We were given menus while we were served water and warm bread. The waiter, Zak, explained the specials for the day as well as thoroughly explaining some of the menu items. We finally chose the PEI mussels, watermelon strawberry blueberry on a bed of lettuce salad, exceptional pork tenderloin with polenta and tomatoes which we had the chef split for us and a wonderful bread pudding with fresh blueberries and served on a large plate where the chef wrote "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate. The price was also reasonable. The hostess even said happy anniversary on our way out. The food, service and ambiance could not have been better. One of the best restaurants we've been to lately.

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner so much that we went back a second time during our week in Telluride. Everything we had seemed to be perfectly prepared with a creative flair. The heirloom tomato salad and salmon were especially good. Service was first rate. The back patio is lovely -- leafy green and only about seven tables that are not too close together. The restaurant is popular, so be sure to make a reservation.
