We live in Telluride and this is OUR favorite place to eat. The owners care about their guests, the price fix specials help control spending which is tough in a resort town. The dependability of getting a great meal is never an issue. Critical to us is that it is possible to hold a conversation as it is NOT loud. Not true for some of our towns other restaurants. Beet salad is a must, the sorbets are also fantastic. There is a larger table upstairs if you want to book a private dinner for a larger group. I always just say bring me today's best entree, and they surprise me.
