There was a terrible storm the night we visited Allred's and we were worried about our dogs in the hotel room below. The staff was super accommodating to get our meal to go and were so polite and understanding. We had a table by the window with a fabulous view of the lightening. The food - even after it cooled off - was so delicious. We will be back.

Views for days - literally. Main dining room was crowded and loud. Bar was hopping and cocktails were tasty. We sat in the fireplace room and will request it every time... quieter, same views. Mario and staff were attentive and helpful. Perfect service. Food was excellent. It is one of the more pricey spots in this resort town but great for a special occasion or late night in Telluride.

Amazing views, excellent service, and the food is on point. The price point is high, but it is well worth it. I’ve spent summers in Telluride for 5 years and it is crazy that I waited this long to try Allred’s. Will be coming hear multiple times each year now! Thanks to Mario, Paul, and the fantastic crew at Allred’s!

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.
