    We haven't dined at the New Sheridan for over 17 years and never made time to dine there through the years. A steaks a steak, right? Well, no it's not- not if you are the New Sheridan Chop House. The food was simply outstanding. We couldn't decide who chose the best dishes! Incredible mussels, delicious duck confit spring rolls, perfectly prepared filet mignon- all so great! Our server Johnny was also amazing- he really made our meal even more enjoyable. He had a zest for the food he served and was so eager to please. A true professional. He just added to the overall great experience. We can't wait to return next year and enjoy another wonderful meal!! Did I forget to mention the delectable pumpkin cheesecake??

    We stayed at the New Sheridan hotel for our snowboarding trip (7 days), and booked all the best restaurants for our stay. The Chop House was will stay on top of our list for our next stay in Telluride. The food was perfect and the wine list offers a wide range of choices. Just be sure to reserve early... after our 1st dinner there we wanted to go back later in the week and there was no availability... We'll book before getting there for at least 2 dinner next time :-)

    Once again the Chop house shines. Food impeccable , Rib eye bison that a companion had and I tasted the best, while my filet was perfect. If there is any complaint is that the staff is a little too formal in this casual mountain town, but the Sheridan is not for a casual night out for most people.

    The steak was great, but service was awful. It took nearly 2 hours from the time we were seated to get a steak. Staff would not check to see if we needed a new drink during this period. The steak was great, but sides were cold. I would not recommend this resturant....there are far better places to dine in Telluride.

    After spending a week in Telluride, and dining at 7 different restaurants, the New Sheridan Chop house was our "least favorite". While we found the service to be borderline good, our server couldn't have acted less enthusiastic and knew absolutely nothing about wine! I ordered a Roasted Beet Salad and am convinced the "roasted beets" had come out of a can; compliments of Delmonte! This salad had absolutely nothing going on! My wife & daughter ordered the flavorless French Onion Soup and my daughter's medium rare hamburger came out well done. I ordered the expensive Dry Aged Bison Ribeye and it tasted like shoe leather(Try the Bison @ 221 S. Oak!). The only dish we enjoyed was the sauteed Brussels Sprout side dish. What a disappointment!

    Excellent evening---if we could have given a rating of 4.5 we would have. The service was outstanding---attentive (but not overly so) and friendly. The food was excellent, although we were a little disappointed in the appetizers--mushroom soup was a little "dense" versus creamy and the tempura were lacking an Asian flair--more simply fried. The steaks were outstanding, as was the salmon. Desserts were unnecessary (!!), but disappeared in a hurry. We would definitely go back to the Sheridan Chop House.

    For a restaurant that is suppose to be known for its great meat...steak was extremely tough...not what one would expect for a $40 price. Presentation of meal was dismal. A big slab of meat on a white plate! I think a small side vegetable or starch would make the diner feel like the entree they had ordered was special. Will not return.

    I am not one to write these and complain, but I have to speak-up. My wife and I went to the New Sheridan after locals told us it was excellent. We were excited for some fine dining. Unfortunately, it was anything but fine. The server was rude and acted like she was doing us a favor to wait on us. When the food came it was horrible! When I pay $43.00 dollars for a steak, I expect excellence, it was perhaps the worst tasting meal I ever had. I ordered the truffle fries and they were dry and medium warm. On the side was a clove of garlic, unsuitable for spread. Not sure what the locals were raving about, perhaps too little choice. Do yourself a favor, save your money and time and avoid this place

    We were expecting a little more, and while we liked our server enough, he wasn't the most attentive. Also, I had to ask for salt and pepper. Once brought, the bottom of the salt shaker fell off, spilling salt all over my plate (ruining my steak), and my pants and shoes. When I told the waiter, he told me "oh, that salt shaker did the same thing last night." Really?? I didn't make a big deal about it, in part because I was already full, but he should have offered to do something, anything, about it. We'd probably go back when in Telluride, but only because of the ambiance and the fact that there aren't a ton of other options there.

    Possibly the worst service ever. We were seated and then ignored for the next 15 minutes even though only 1/4 of the table were full and servers were standing around chatting by the bar. Servers walked by without eye contact. Finally I flagged someone down and told them we didn't have a server. She looked perplexed, went and told a group of people and they all looked at us, perplexed. Then, halfway though our dinner, our server was mysteriously replaced by a different waiter. Needless to say, the tip was minimal, and although the food was good, we have no plans to go back anytime soon.

    I had the dry-aged buffalo ribeye with brulee creamed corned and brussel sprouts + bacon. My mom had the pasta with cream sauce and mushrooms. Both were just so-so in my opinion. I found the steak underseasoned and tough, and the bernaise sauce was watered down. The creamed corn was unidimensional and overly sweet, and the brussels were underflavored (tossing bacon on top doesn't fix everything). The pasta was OK, but not memorable. Did really like the wine list though.

    My husband thought the filet was the best he had ever had, and we enjoyed the overall dinner. I wasn't super hungry, so I ordered the soup and salad. The soup desperately needed seasoning, but after adding some salt and pepper, it was good. Telluride in general is pretty snobby, but for a nicer, upscale restaurant, the staff was really nice and were friendly to our 2 little boys that came with us. Can't say that for the rest of the town. We initially were going to go for brunch ( we heard it is super good also) since we had our boys with us, but glad we took the chance for dinner with the kiddos. The restaurant itself is very old school fancy, so it would be great for entertaining clients or nice for a date night.
