“Charming, old cabin; tight quarters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

As mentioned by other reviewers, the restaurant is a cute, old cabin. This, however, means that the spaces are crowded. We arrived (on time) with a throng of other diners and had to wait to be seated. The waiting area was already crowded with people who were complaining they had been waiting to be seated for 15 minutes. Horrors! I felt so sorry for the people dining at tables in the bar area. They were trying to enjoy their meals with people, some of them inordinately irate, hovering over them making comments. Waiting outside in below zero weather was not an option. Nevertheless, we persevered with martinis and were led upstairs to a little alcove where we had the only large table-- we were a party of eight. It was great! I can't vouch for the downstairs dining area but our "private room" was awesome even if at times we wondered if the floor could collapse and land us on top of the bartender. Did I mention this place is OLD? Anyway, there is a varied prix fixe menu of tasty food as well as attentive and accommodating service. All this charm does not come cheaply but it was good enough that we did not feel ripped off. Definitely would return!

“Charming and tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

We thoughroly enjoyed our dinner at La Marmotte even though there was a fixed menu there was still plenty to choose from, you have the options to changed it up a bit. The food and service was excellent.

“One of Telluride's Finest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

The quaint restaurant offers Prix Fixe menus with delicious food and excellent service.
If you don't want dessert, you may substitute one of their many cleverly concocted drinks.
Top marks for this wonderful, small restaurant. Say 'hello' to Chef Mark. He's the genius in charge.

“Excellent for special occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

If you are celebrating and are willing to spend the extra dollar, it is an amazing place. You will need a reservation. Good service, excellent food. Limited menu but everything on the menu is fresh and seasonal, the menu supposedly changes nightly. If you don't want to do the 3 course meal, you can order separate things off the menu. Excellent wine menu.

“nice french bistro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

I had the onion soup which was creamy didn't like it much but the gruyere cheese on top was divine. The duck was delish ulala. My husband had the lamb which was good but very small portions. The ratatouille was soupy and tastless. Had creme brule for dessert and chocolate cake both good.The bread was good. Service was nice.
