The food was great, the views are off the charts, and I get it that they have to everything up to the top of the mountain, but the reality is that it's over priced. We had a lovely meal but we won't be going back. A great place for a super special occasion, just won't become a favorite.

We love Allred’s and enjoy dining here when we visit Telluride. The view is unbeatable. Our dinner this time was not on par with past visits. None of the steaks - elk, bison or beef - were cooked to requested temperature. Most needed to go back to the kitchen to be cooked to medium rare or medium as ordered. Only one was over cooked. Service was nice but not attentive. Our server needed to be flagged down whenever we needed something - another cocktail, more water, food issues, etc. Although we were disappointed this time, we will come back next trip and hope they have worked out the kinks!

Very classy and comfortable place. We weren't rushed through our meal which allowed us to enjoy the fine wine while having good conversation.
The Elk dish was exceptional, along with the pork chop and bison entree.
The wine list is great, however pricey. An alternative is to buy the wine by the glass.

We took our 4 children for a special dinner on our vacation. We were lucky to have a clear night and the view was unlike anything in the world! Allred’s could just attract people for the view and serve sub-par food, but the don’t! The food was as good as the best steakhouses in bigger cities!
Our children are ages 6-12 and were the only children there. The kids menu was great but we were very aware that not many people bring kids, certainly not younger than ours. We did manage to spill a few drinks and there were some tears (normal for us:)) but the staff was sweet and helpful, no judgement.
We also ordered wine and the sommelier was lovely, helpful and knowledgeable. So happy we made our reservations months in advance and enjoyed this special place.

I gave four stars because, while we had a very nice window table, the enormity of the dinning hall lacked privacy and intimacy. I wouldn't want to dine in that area. The food was excellent and service, especially from the female sommelier, was outstanding!

The location and views from the mountain require a visit to the restaurant. The food is good yet it is not as good as some of the other places in Telluride. The cost of Allred's is very high so the value is questionable.

We love Allred’s, but from the moment we sat down it was are you ready to order your entree. We would like apps first. Are you ready to order your entree. We would like salad and a second course. Are you ready to order your entree. Yes. In and out in an hour. We realized that we wouldn’t be able to drink a bottle of wine in the time we had to order. Love eating in the bar the other days!

The Porcini Rotelle was absolutely amazing! Although I am Gluten Free, I tired a bite of my partner's. Would love to see Allreds offer a GF option for this fabulous vegetarian entree. The Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake was also fabulous.

This has been my "last night in Telluride" go to restaurant for the last 7 years. Food has always been good, love the ambience, particularly a window table at sunset, and the service has been generally OK in the past. This past time, poor service.....and now reconsidering if I will return in the future.

Poor service and asked to have water and drinks refilled more than once. Had the misfortune of sitting next to a table especially set up for 16 people. Waiter and server MIA once large table began ordering cocktails. Servers had no idea what entrees they were serving and wanted to put plates down quickly, even if that was the wrong entree. Nearly had my Colorado Rack of Lamb dumped in my lap by a hasty server. Couldn't get attention to order dessert. Then the kicker....about 30 minutes after arriving home I received a call that I was given the WRONG BILL to pay for dinner. I owed about $20 more than the other bill I paid. Usually I check my bill but I was so irritated about waiting for decent service I just handed the waiter my CC right when he handed me the bill, as I had no idea when he would reappear. Person who phoned me could barely apologize. Evening was very disappointing, and this was even after meeting the GM Mario, who seemed like a very nice guy and there for the last 8 years, yet the first time we met. Probably the last....

Been to Telluride many times & heard of Allred’s but never tried it. Sorry about that now.
We’ll never make that mistake again on returning visits.
A beautiful place with awesome views at a unique location at the top of the Gondola.
Food offerings were many & the food excellent. Service was attentive.
Loved our experience there.
