    I had an absolutely wonderful experience. This was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. The ambience in this little gem is almost magical - very warm and cozy. The menu is varied and the hardest part was deciding what to get. Everything I tasted was fantastic. The waiter was very helpful and the service in general was professional and friendly.

    Don't miss the awesome lunch in the summer season on the outdoor patio with live music, new cafe menu served in the bar is a nice alternative. Dinner @ La Marmotte is consistently first class from the start to finish, food to wine ..you can't go wrong.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/6/2009
    Dinner was great, and fairly well priced (they are using a pre-fix menu). It had some interesting combinations, and was taking full advantage of the season to produce fall-themed dishes. However, some of the dishes tended to incorporate the same general build-up - for instance, both of our dishes were garnished with an almost identical corn and greens, hers with chicken, mine with scallops. But overall, i was pleased with the food, the wine was good, and the service was great. Very attentive staff. I would recommend it.

    The food was marginal at best. We were basically ignored by the wait staff and even though there were only 5 of us, gratuity was added. The menu clearly states that gratuity will be added with a group of 6 or more. I could not even let my feelings be known by leaving a 10% tip instead of the 20% added.

    Very cool place for people who like to go to that restaurant a little bit off the beaten path. It has a cozy atmosphere with a unique menu. I would definitely go back if I visit Telluride again. I had the veal wrapped in prosciutto which was a little salty and the flavor a little dull. With that being said, I am a spoiled foodie who loves sauces with rich and vibrant flavors. However, the salad was fantastic and the desert was amazing! My boyfriend had the lamb which was really good and I would highly recommend it. The lemon cheesecake was the best I've ever had!

    Some of the best food in Telluride. Outstanding wine list, BUT cheapest house wine is $44 /btl, or $49 off the regular wine list. I don't mind spending plenty on wine, but a restaurant should cater to all budgets. Come on, can't find a nice $15 bottle to mark up to $35? Just my personal beef. Anyway, my dinner was fantastic with a five dollar Anchor Steam.

    For years we have enjoyed this restaurant but our latest experience was very disappointing. My wife's and my entree was very average except that it was way over salted. The new menu seemed very unimaginative and the wine list is overpriced. Our service was fine and the atmosphere is very nice but the entrees on this visit ruined our dining experience. Even though we mentioned our disappointment to our server, our comments were passed over and nothing more was said. I don't think we'll be returning any time too soon.

    i hanger steak with truffle fries. NOT GOOD at all. Steak was dry with a little roquefort and the sauce was bland. my fries had some white stuff on it which I suppose was truffle??? tasteless. my friend had roasted chicken which was also dry and not at all delicious. the only highlight was my roasted beet salad with relly good fried goatcheese wontons. All and all definitely not a destination dining place which was expected but did not deliver to the high expectations.

    NEVER AGAIN! La Marmotte was very disappointing. We were four adults arriving at 6:00 P.M. for dinner. The quality of the food was horrible, and the presentation even worst. Since we each ordered differently I would say we had an accurate sampling of the menu. There is no excuse for any restaurant to serve such slop...WATERY and BLAND. Soup was so thickened that a spoon could stand alone in it. Service was good, but that does not make up for bad food.

    Service was pretty slow - took a while for drinks and wine to get to our table. My companions both raved about their meals beef tenderloin and Coq a vin. Salads are pretty small compared to the servings on the oother 1st courses. My vegetarian entree was not very wonderul. Needs work. The wine list changed and seeems to get VERY expensive VERY fast. They used to have such wonderful and affordable wines, now they start at $60 and quickly jump to the $100 and $200 range. They should offer more wines in the Affordable range - they're out there and they're good!

The rest of us felt the same way about our entrees and the dessert was to die for, we ordered the crumble and the fried bananas and they were heaven. If I lived locally I would be eating at this restaurant at least once a month, despite the economy. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

    The ambiance was rustic and appealing however the restaurant didn't advertise that its menu was price fixed. You could order ala carte but there were no prices for the individual entrees. The waiter indicated that it would cost more by ordering ala carte but the cost for the individual entrees were never disclosed. This restaurant's menu was not child friendly, the staff was accommodating and yet not as well versed on the preparation of the individual entrees. The onion soup, prepared creamy and pureed was really delicious yet the remaining dishes left a lot to be desired. Nice atmosphere, average food and inflated prices.
