The most beautiful view you could ever imagine and an incredible meal with amazing service. A truly special restaurant. It is obvious that they genuinely care about your dining experience by the attentive service. This is must dining experience when in Telluride.

My husband and I had dinner here on the last night of our vacation. It was a great way to end our family trip. The view was wonderful, as I expected after seeing ads and photos from the restaurant. The food and service were remarkable! I expected that I would mostly be paying for the food, but the view was just a bonus. We had elk and bison; both meals were cooked to perfection including the potatoes and vegetables. The goat cheese cheesecake was delicate yet flavorful. Lance took wonderful care of us; he was attentive but not overbearing. Absolutely perfect last night romantic dinner. Unfortunately, the expense would have prevented us from doing any more.

Beautiful views and delicious cuisine. The small plates offer something for every taste you may be craving. The crouton cheese tots were scrumptious. The tenderloin and Brussels spouts were prepared and seasoned perfectly. Service was exceptional and staff was very attentive to meeting our every need and making us feel welcome.

Best view ever from a restaurant. The view alone would make dining at Allred's worth the price. But amazingly the food is excellent in every way, even though it wouldn't have to be. We will certainly be back, and probably eat as early as possible to get a table near the windows.

Allred's has some of the best views in Telluride, and is definitely worth a stop in, even for just a cocktail, to soak in those views. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed with our overall dining experience. I had let them know in advance it was a special occasion (my wife's birthday) and we arrived well before it got packed. There was an open table along the windows in a great spot, yet we were seated in a corner by a window completely blocked by trees, offering us no views of Telluride. We brushed this aside as we were still happy to be there and the restaurant is quite beautiful. Then the food came and we were again disappointed. My wife's filet mignon was cooked well, but was way too salty, to the point she could only eat a few bites. My elk strip was ordered medium rare but came out mostly rare. It was a busy Friday night, so rather than complain and wait for everything to be recooked, we did the best we could with our plates. Our server was pleasant, but never asked if we wanted another glass of wine when we finished our first, and asked us how our food was a few seconds after it was delivered, before we even had a bite. We felt kind of rushed by the service and perhaps even a little "profiled" by the staff, perhaps because we weren't dressed formally, though nothing too casual. I hope it wasn't anything that intentional, but that's just the vibe we got. I do want to thank them for giving us a complimentary dessert due to the occasion, which was delicious. Overall though, I don't think we'll return to Allred's on our next trip to Telluride.

We visited Allred’s to celebrate a birthday. The wait staff was great, food was average, certainly not mind-blowing, but one of the managers soured the experience. A member of our party asked if she could order a salad with salmon on it... pretty standard, I would expect. After the waitress checked with the kitchen, the order was placed. About 10 minutes later, one of the managers came to our table, and very passive aggressively said that while they could accommodate the request this one time, it’s not something they can do going forward. Odd... don’t make your diners feel uncomfortable because your staff was unaware of a random policy about adding protein to a salad. It was so awkward that we felt unwelcome the rest of the time. Mario was a saving grace... welcoming, kind and very accommodating.

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.

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.
