Diner Reviews
  • "Everything was superb. Love the hanger steak, horseradish mash potatoes, and chocolate molten cake! It's all good."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "This restaurant has it all! Ambience, energy, delicious food, friendly wait staff. We are part time locals and this is by far our favorite go-to spot."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Too much food, hence too expensive. You have to order fixe prix. Can't order a la carte. Wines too pricy."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Very good restaurant with a $54 table d'hôte menu. Get to choose appetizer, entree, and desert for $54! Nice variety of choices."

  • "One of the best restaurants we have eaten at in Telluride. The food was superb and the setting, an ancient ice house, was delghtful. The ambience was sophisticated yet rustic. The bar seemed lively on the way through, although we took cocktails, which were excellent, at our table. The wine list was good, although a little pricey. All in all, though, a great evening."

  • "Imagine arriving in Telluride ready for a extended weekend of fresh powder skiing, walking through the snow and arriving at a warm, inviting eatery in the heart of town. All of our selections were delightful especially the rabbit and the duck. It was our first night and basically things went 'downhill' from there (lol)!"

  • "This restaurant has been here as long as I have coming to Telluride - 25+ years. It is a favorite of locals and tourists. They prepare fish, elk, and steaks with a French flair. On this occasion I enjoyed the sea bass and the foie gras. Both were terrific."

  • "We had intended a later dinner, but one of our party wanted to see the Oscars so we "dined" at 5:30. Our waiter was not at all put out, and was very helpful and accommodating. La Marmotte has become one of our favorite dine-out places in Telluride. The prix fixe menu is always outstanding, but the restaurant is quick to accommodate those who prefer to sample from the menu rather than order all the courses. The interior is lovely; brick walls and attractive local art contrast nicely with the white tablecloths and crystal."

  • "Menu is three course prix fix and service was one course per hour with no attention."

  • "Our dinner was wonderful. Perfect for a romantic occasion. The service was impeccable! Food was outstanding!"
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Overall a bland meal at a steep price in a town that offers better value elsewhere. The menu seems dated and food lacked flavor. 2 of our 4 meals were average at best and one was poorly executed. The venison could not have been more chewy. The short ribs were good. Good cocktails, lackluster wine list. Great service and good ambiance."

  • "Great spot - excellent food. Tiny older bathrooms only negative."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Always good experiences in the past. Maybe because the previous times were during the off season, we had unreasonable expectations of a leisurely experience with more personal attention. This was Valentine's and understandably a busy night. However, we had barely paid our bill when the hostess was standing over our table asking us to leave. There had been no delay in paying the bill, ie we had quickly finished our desserts and handed over the credit card. There were no enquiries about anything else needed, coffee, etc. Just, we need your table. Obviously a little taken aback by this & embarrassed on behalf of guests who were dining for the first time there. Pretty unacceptable for a restaurant of this caliber(& price)."

  • "We have been looking forward to spending a night out and being able to finally go to La Marmotte. Everyone from the bartender, to the hostess were great. I love the way the restaurant is cozy and the kitchen is somewhat visible in the middle of the room but on a higher level. The only thing I wasn't as impressed with was the food; I feel the server should have been more excited about the menu considering we were some of the only earlier reservations in the restaurant - maybe giving some suggestions as to what the chef prepares best to make our experience the best it could be. For the value I think there are a few other places in town that would be worth the value, but I would be willing to give it another shot."

  • "So yummy and romantic. The menu is so unique... setting in the old town Icehouse. This is a must when visiting Telluride or a special occasion."

  • "After spending the day skiing being a guest at La Marmotte was a real treat. From the cozy atmosphere to the great wines and food, La Marmotte gets it right on all levels. Living in Manhattan I am used to eating very well, la Marmootte does not disappoint!"

  • "Loved this place! Had braised ribs and they were fantastic. Creme burlee for desert was great as well."

  • "Our dinner was excellent. Service at the table was great. We visit La Marmotte frequently when in Telluride. This visit started off poorly though. We arrived on time for our 7:30 reservation which had been confirmed by the restaurant around 5pm that day. When we weren't seated about 10 minutes after arrival, the hostess told me that our table should be ready for our 8pm reservation. While drinks we had while waiting were comp'd, we felt that we weren't getting treated honestly."

  • "This is a very good restaurant that could be much better. It has a nice menu, but, the food while good, doesn't live up it' potential. The style is classic French, but, the reality drifts too far from traditional fare. In my view, the chef is getting way to inventive."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "Standard option of $54 per person for 3 course meal plus numerous add-on of around $5-$7, effectively taking the price to $60+ per person. House wines by the glass are at around $12. Main course portion was small, and aside from the creme brûlée it was a generic dessert selection."

  • "Tacos, lamb and steak all excellent butternut sq soup average"

  • "This was our first time in Telluride. We received many recommendations from friends. We were so glad this was one of the restaurants we chose from the many recommended. La Marmotte was our favorite of the places where we ate. My beef short rib melted in my mouth and was rich with flavor. When you are in Telluride you must have at least one dinner at La Marmotte."

  • "Always friendly staff. Great food. Creamy French onion soup, hot cold shrimp and Hanger steak. All great."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "The ambience and service were spectacular though they cut one server too early and the later part of the evening we waited around a bit more than I would have liked for that kind of money. The only real complaint was the first course and the desert were good but could have been much better. I had the white onion and goat cheese tart which should be light but I was expecting a bit more flavor and for desert the key lime cheesecake was not flavorful at all i want the lime to burst in my mouth and make me salivate, instead i was merely tasting a hint of the tart lime and a bunch of cream cheese. Overall I would recommend Le Marmotte but not the dishes i chose."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "We dined again at Marmotte because we loved it so much during our first visit to Telluride. The restaraunt was busy, but not full this time. While the atmosphere was still enjoyable, the good quality and service were a let-down. I received the wrong drinks twice, the steak I received was overcooked and tough, the water was not refilled, and even though they knew they were obviously short staffed, there were no apologies provided. On a positive note, the short ribs were fantastic! We hope it's better next round."

  • "Could well be the best in Telluride. Buffalo tenderloin was, maybe, the best I have ever had. Atmosphere is great; chef is truly talented. The "en suite" main course kitchen adjacent to the dining area assures prompt, properly heard food. The bread is also the best in Telluride. All in all, though a little pricy, great food quality makes this a must."

  • "We have been here several times - the food justifies the price. This time our waiter (we have had him before) seemed pretty much disconnected. We didn't ask for much, but he needed to be reminded several times. Another of our guests finally went to get him to bring more iced tea for the DD (me)."
