    It's a very consistent menu so you know what you're going to get before you walk in. The wine list is wonderful and most of the food is very tastily prepared. My only complaint is that for a restaurant that reaches into the stratosphere of priciness, the service is somewhat off-handed and indifferent.

    We decided to finally go back to New Sheridan after a disappointing experience last time, but unfortunately, this time wasn't much better. I will say that the food is very good, unfortunately the service is where this restaurant is lacking. The service is very slow and inattentive. We were seated outside, which we requested, and ordered a drink from the bar. Well, 25 minutes later after not having anyone come to our table or bring us our drinks, I went in to find out what happened. The manager apologized and the sent someone to our table right away. The service quickly improved and the food was very good but our initial experience was hard to overcome. Sorry New Sheridan Chop House, we have given you 2 chances and neither one impressed us.

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    Beautiful restaurant in the historic New Sheridan hotel- a special treat to celebrate Father's Day and our 30th anniversary--- and lived up to our expectations. We were seated at a corner table for two in the window over looking the outdoor dinning. Our waiter, Travers, was attentive but not overly friendly, which we prefer. Although he wasn't that knowledgeable about the wine we were interested in, he consulted with someone else who picked out a Seghisio Zinfandel, which was perfect with my husband's bone in rib-eye. (However, we thought it a bit odd that one had to pay extra for the sauce to go with one's steak!) I had a black bass which was outstanding. While this is may be a splurge, for most, it is worth it!

    We ate in the Americana room and had a fantastic meal. We all swooned over the piping hot sourdough bread and butter. The salads were nicely dressed and very fresh. The filet and bone-in ribeye steaks were perfectly cooked and the sides, brussels and corn casserole, were very tasty. The horseradish sauce was nicely spiced. We'll become regulars.

    This restaurant has increased its prices with a decrease in food quality since we have been coming here over the past couple years. Everything is a la carte. A 4 oz filet mignon is $49 just for the meat alone. Not worth it!

    My husband and I are not steak house devotees, but did not want to miss this wonderfully colorful old hotel restaurant. It truly lives up to its fame and I would recommend the experience. We actually had to send our steak back because it was quite gristly, but there was no question from our waiter and we were delivered another promptly that was good. The wait staff is excellent and the busy atmosphere is contagious!

    The hostess kindly accommodated us with a corner table near the window. The place was bustling with small and large groups, all having a great time. Our waiter was adorable, friendly and efficient. He kept us updated on the Oscar results throughout our stay. The sea scallops were the best I've had and the elk loin was fabulous! Al followed by a lovely cheese course. My friend and I agreed that in the four nights that we dined at "the best" restaurants in Telluride, the Chop House stood head and shoulders above the rest...exceeded all in service, ambiance and food.

    Have eaten here many times, but attention to detail was missing. Forgot to send the appetizer. Steaks were all cooked the same no matter how they were ordered. The waiter although pleasant, was to busy having conversations at other tables rather than focusing on his job.

    Tracy had the filet which came highly recommended and it proved worthy of mention. I opted for the buffalo ribeye loin while cooked to perfection it was quite tough for my palette. I switched my buffalo for the New York strip which turned out extremely well. The proteins pared well with a Willamette valley Pino Noir.

    This restaurant was a "must visit" for me anytime that I visit Telluride since my first trip there. Now 6 visits later, not so much. My very first experience with this restaurant was outstanding, but the food and service degraded over the last two years in my opinion. Most recently, the $50 "special" dry aged bone in New York strip was one of the worst cuts of meat I've had at any steakhouse ( Outback included). Service was poor....an overall disappointing experience for a former fan and advocate. Never again

    Our party of four was seated in a booth as requested on Open Table. Our waiter was awesome, our food so very good-my favorite place in Telluride! I always get mussels here and am never disappointed! Kale salad was quite tasty. My companions had the steak and enjoyed it very much! Instead if dessert I had a cocktail - Flatliner-very yummy!

    Fantastic restaurant, fabulous food, great ambience, love the white table cloths, candles. Service is friendly and professional, easy to have a conversation without fighting music or bar noise. Tables next to windows are chilly (ladies, bring a wrap or keep your coat with you) . Avoid the first booth on the left - very tight and hazardous - bus boys use the pony wall that wraps around the booth as their bus station. We were soaked when he hastily put down his water jug on top of it. Won't deter us from eating there again-just avoid that booth!

    Yes, it's a busy time of the year in town. But, we got there at 5:30 to avoid the crowd. Service was slow and our expensive steaks arrived at our table luke warm. Our sides were not hot either. Sent the food back to get heated up. Ended up waiting 15 minutes. I don't know if the kitchen was short handed or no one was coordinating the food delivery. We have eaten here several times and it is usually very good.
