Service(Crystal) was exceptional. All the entrees were great. The big eye run app was not our favorite but everything else was perfect. Rhubarb dessert was amazing. Incredible view of Telluride and the surrounding mountains at sunset.

Was great as usual. We were a little disappointed that Mario, the maitre d’, did not come over to our table as he always has. He welcomed us but did not come by and talk to kids who love him. Maybe it was because we had another family with us and everyone was talking and having a great time.

Tolle Aussicht auf Telluride. Unbedingt einen Tisch am Fenster reservieren. Die Trüffel Pommes vorab zu den Drinks sind hervorragend. Crabecake und Hawaiian Tuna perfekt und das Steak vom ELK schmeckt einfach köstlich. Ein sehr zuvorkommendes Personal rundet diesen perfektenAbend ab. Unbedingt reservieren, wenn man in Telluride oder im Mountain Village einige Tage verbringt.

The views and atmosphere were excellent. What we were most disappointed with was the service. The waiter that served us was rude and not at all friendly. We felt very unwelcome which was disappointing considering we were there celebrating a baby on the way and it was our first time visiting.

Allred’s Restaurant is a must if you’re visiting Telluride. The views alone are worth the ski town prices. The lamb was perfectly cooked and the wine list is extensive. All around delicious! Quickly became a favorite!

Food ok but overall way too pretentious. Wine list with outrageous prices and staff that doesn't respond well if you don't spend $300 for a bottle of wine. We were quite disappointed with the overall experience.

We came at 5:00pm and intended on ordering appetizers and drinks, which seemed reasonable enough for that time of day. The restaurant was about 20% full at that time. Once we mentioned that we wouldn't be ordering full meals, we were treated very poorly. We were told that we could have to pay a $7.00 fee for ordering appetizers without meals, which seemed unnecessary but I understand if that is their policy,they have to enforce it, and we didn't mind paying the surcharge. It was more the attitude towards us - the server couldn't wait to get rid of us. We really wanted to soak in the beautiful views, but were rushed out of there within 1 hour. He never asked us how we were enjoying our trip or our food, and barely made eye contact with us. The food was also a disappointment. For such a beautiful and expensive restaurant, I would truly expect much better service standards.

I booked dinner at Allreds for the birthday of my wife during our annual ski trip to Telluride. The restaurant is a wow - it is like entering the den of a Bond villain!
We were seated next to a window which would have provided a spectacular view had it not been dark. There was a louder than expected level of noise in the dining room.
Food was excellent - the elk entree was sublime! Service was attentive but not overly intrusive. The sommelier, Katie was a fantastic resource in navigating the extensive wine list and also in discussing the finer points of keeping and serving wine at 10000ft! There was a small hiccup when we ordered desert but this was quickly rectified.
Overall, a fantastic experience, good value and one that I would repeat.

I was at Allred’s for my birthday and everything was amazing. The food and wine were phenomenal. Unfortunately someone in my group had some pretty bad altitude sickness so we had to leave abruptly. The staff packaged everything up promptly and even put a birthday candle in the dessert container. Great food and service. Can’t recommend enough

We went to Allred’s to cap off an excellent week of skiing. Allred’s definitely has the location. The views are spectacular, especially during sunset. Many restaurants that have the perfect location simply rely by on the location only and offer a marginal meal. Allred’s doesn’t. They deliver an outstanding meal along with a spectacular views. The waitstaff is super attentive and very friendly.

I had the Elk loin which may have been the best elk meal I have ever had. My wife had the veal which was perfectly prepared. Our friends has the lamb chops and the Sea Bass. Both loved the meal.

If you’re in Telluride you need to eat at Allred‘s. You won’t be disappointed.

Great view, great food albeit pricey. Service was excellent and they were accommodations towards gluten free. It would be nice if restaurants would offer gluten free breads. Allred’s offered Udis GF bread but if you have ever tasted it, you’d also refuse, it’s dry as paper and tasteless.

Fantastic ambiance, food very good (particlarly the veal scallopini )but our service was lacking for such an upscale night. Tookforever to get the wine list and order wine. Then the appetizer had hardly arrived and then the meals came - poor pacing. Then bread came. Definitely backwards. Others we know had better experiences so hopefully it was a fluke.
Atmosphere and views are incredible!

The views are the highlight of the dining experience and worth a visit to see. Our reservations were made 3 weeks in advance for 6 pm and we were not happy with our table which was all the way in the back next to an area where staff were constantly going into to get silverware, etc. (noisy and annoying). The service was rushed as were the other tables in our vicinity and everyone was leaving pretty much at the same time as though the reservations were for “seating time blocks” only. My veal scallopine was ok but a little less arugula and more veal would have been nice. My husbands Chilean Bass was drowning in sauce that overpowered the nice fish which was a shame since it’s a treat to find Chilean bass on a menu. The server was very nice but rushed and we felt pressured to order, eat and leave. We’ve been to Allred’s numerous times but I will be hesitant in the future to go again. We live in Telluride part time and it’s a shame to see the loss of a true fine dining experience in this very unique setting.

After 22 years of living in the area, my wife and I tried the main room for the first time for our 43rd anniversary. Other than the high level of noise, (we arrived during the end of the family meal) the night was all we had hoped for. Having the best view table, window center, the impeccable service never lacked even though the room was packed. Once the snow cleared and the view of town was visable, our entrees arrived and were beautifully presented. Looks aside, the entree and sides were wonderful. I had the bison and my precautions were tossed as it was probably the most delicious meat I have tasted. Brava!
