    Was there for Thanksgiving dinner, they has a 3 course dinner with options for each course. Members of our group had the turkey dinner and the Seared Prime NY, both were very good. The pumpkin pie and chocolate custard desserts were excellent.

    The Turkey portion (for thanksgiving) was out of control, the other components were delicious but totally overshadowed by those large slabs of bland meat.

    We love Black Iron and have been there many times. Food is good and, although service has been slow during the last couple of years, they do their best to keep everyone happy! My only disappointment is that costs rise every time we revisit with a significant jump over the last year. As much as we love it, we may have to choose differently in the future. But, a lovely space.

    The menu is heavy on meet dishes My halibut order was on the dry side and the garnish was minimal. For the price I expected more The lighting is poor, no ambiance whatsoever Their doors leading to the outside sitting is open, creating a drift and chill. It seems like they are catering more to the staff than to customers. Dissapointing.

    We had family from out of state joining us in telluride, and we had known for months that we wanted to bring them to Black Iron. It was a Sunday night & a bit chilly, so we sat inside in front of the fireplace. We had the place to ourselves pretty much, and our older parents had no problem hearing the conversation at the table. We shared the ribeye board and it was amazing - last visit, we enjoyed the elk board. Can’t wait until our next visit to work our way through the board menu! Our waiter was knowledgeable, but our one complaint was that he would answer our questions and promptly wander off. This made ordering take longer, but the food and wine made up for this one quirk.

    We waited 1 hour and 20 minutes for our food. Our server was MIA. Specifically asked for French Fries to be hot. They were not. Hector the manager tried to make amends We go their often and this not the norm.

    Had a fine table outdoors at BIK. Ordered small plates. Elk Chili and Soup of the day (Corn Chowder) were really good. Cocktails and wines by the glass were tasty. Dining out at 9500 feet in the Rockies is hard to beat..

    Food was great. Thought my pork chop was a little over, but not to the extent that I wanted to send it back. The potato dumplings appetizer was the star of the meal. Well thought out and exploding flavors. NY strip tartare was good but with more seasoning it would have been amazing. Heirloom tomato salad was eh. The elk chop was cooked perfectly and really enjoyed that dish. Halibut dish was fantastic but if one ate the fish by itself I would have wanted it seasoned a little more. But as a whole with all the components the dish was great. Our server was knowledgeable and provided our table with amazing service. Overall an amazing experience and we will return.

    We are very happy that we happened across this place in Telluride. Peter was an outstanding waiter. The food- divine. We had the buffalo tomahawk - MMMMM! Also, the potato dumplings. We had also ordered the spaghetti squash and summer salad- both were good, but definitely not the highlight of the show as the tomahawk and dumplings were. The night before, we went to Altezza- we were SO BUMMED. It was disastrous. We hunted for the "perfect" place to finish out our 2 week adventure in Colorado- Black Iron did just that. A++++++.

    I had booked a reservation weeks in advance. The day before I went to the restaurant and spoke with the manager, confirming a high top/fire table outside. He said that would not be a problem. The next day we checked-in and had a regular table (even when I asked the hostess for the high top, she saw the request and I even said I stopped in to speak with the manager). No more than 10 minutes after being seated, TWO high top fire tables were open! Couldn’t we have been asked if we wanted to wait???

    Very disappointed in our visit to Black Iron Kitchen this time. Hostess was inexperienced. We had a reservation for 6 people and one of our guest couldn't make our dinner. Hostess wanted to put 5 adults at a 4 top. She was not accommodating at all. Put us inside despite several open tables on the outside patio. Food was fair and over priced. Not sure we will return

    Good was excellent and the service started out that way. But from the time the main course hit the table until the check arrived, our very courteous server never checked on the table one time. No communication. Zero. Oh, and loved the Al fresco dining.

    This was our final meal on a 6-day vacation and it was by far the best. Wife’s Berkshire pork was excellent. The rest of us (1 adult, 2 teens) split the Buffalo tomahawk. It was phenomenal, as were all the veggies that accompanied it (sweet potatoes, red onions, carrots.) Our server, Peter, was attentive without hovering, conversational without overstaying. We ate outdoors and the climate was perfect.
