You can consistently enjoy a great dining experience here. Whenever we are in Telluride, going to Allred’s is on our list. Food and wine are outstanding, along with great view and attentive service. We enjoyed the veal dishes in particular. Highly recommend this restaurant!

After trying to decide on a couple of restaurants, we were urged by our hotel staff to give Allreds a try. They both said "We promise you won't be disappointed" and they were correct. From the start it was fun to take the gondola up to the top of the mountain to the restaurant, and from there everything was perfection. I would 100% highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a relaxing, scenic, delicious meal, with top notch service.

The view and service was fantastic. I was looking for a great steak. The cut was very tender but as any steak lover knows, the flavor should be complete within the steak. Presentation was great but lacked taste. The sauce wasn't any help and actually made it worse. For the price I expected more.

I absolutely love Allred’s. Except for a small downturn a few years back when they started looking more like a glorified steakhouse, Allred’s has always been outstanding and certainly one of my favorites in Telluride!!! I can’t say enough about the location, the view, the service, the wine list, the sommelier, the general manager and now the food has returned to its original 5 star status. Don’t miss Allred’s while visiting Telluride!!!!!!!

Allred was fantastic. We were staying in Mountain Village and chose Allred based largely on the menu. It was my first time in Colorado and I was eager to try elk! Allred did not disappoint! It was cooked just right (medium rare per the chef's recommendation) and perfectly accompanied. We also added the Brussels sprouts and truffle fries. We could hear a pianist playing in the lounge and he played beautifully. The view cannot be beat though note that there is little to see once the sun sets so get there before it does. Highly recommended.

Allred's is a classic place, it's always the same but a little different. I feel like it's a place that will only get it's true love if it disappeared, the price of being consistent :) That said, my duck was excellent, my friend's elk was excellent as well. Great experience all around.

On the reservation, we asked for a table next to the window (the reason to go to Alred's) and told them we were celebrating our anniversary. They did not seat us next to a window, nor did they even acknowledge our celebration. I'm not sure if the reservation details didn't come through or they chose to ignore our requests because we were a party of 2 and not worth the trouble. Either way, they certainly didn't get off to a good start. Our servers were very good and the food was quite good but pricey even by Telluride standards. In the future, we'll choose other locations to celebrate.

amazing!! ... from the Gondala ride to the dessert. Make sure to try the goat cheese cheesecake, potato crutons, and some wine ( we love Barolo, any of them)
Also reserve and request table with a view, you get to see all of downtown telluride.

We had a nice bottle of wine approximately $1400 and had $500 dollars worth of food, we tipped $200 to waitress based on the bill - note, we picked the wine. We were called immediately after we left by the hostess and asked if we made a mistake and to see if we wanted to tip more. NO! The audacity of some people...almost ruined the entire evening. Ridiculous 👊🏿😬👊🏿

We had an awesome dinner and even though 1 table back from the windows enjoyed an incredible view. My husband had the “best steak he’s ever eaten”! Which is saying a lot! I had the halibut and it was fabulous as well. Their flavors and seasonings were over the top! Loved it and will always come back whenever we visit Telluride!
