Excellent!
Atmosphere was a little too cold for being inside. The server was attentive and kind; I do wish she wouldn’t have said ‘yes that’s very good!’ To everyone question about the menu. She didn’t help to differentiate between the steaks available or to provide good description of what we were ordering - drink or food. Otherwise, absolutely delicious!

Food is delicious. We order two special entries (steak and halibut ) and enough to feed four people. The ambient is great. Dog friendly.

Perfect evening!!! We plan to return tomorrow evening. We arrived a half hour early...we had to navigate the gondola with our dog..and wanted to allow plenty of time. The restaurant host directed us to the patio bar next door....until the restaurant was open. The setting, service & wine were on point. We moved on to the restaurant and were seated at a nice table on the patio for dinner. The entire experience was perfect & our dog was very welcome.

We had the chicken and veg dinner for two a week ago and it was great. Decided to have halibut last night and neither the halibut or vegs were that good. In fact vegs were cold and halibut was a little dry.
We ate there again today to have the fried chicken we had recently. Again chicken was not as good as previously. Has something changed i.e. no chef

Greatest for outdoor dining with fantastic ambience, gas warmers if necessary (and they look great even if not needed for heat!), and exceptional servers and service. One of our favorites not only on mMountain Village (where it it the best, hands down) but I Telluride as well.

Drinks don't have much strength and are overpriced. Food isn't bad. Chef takes simple food and complicates it. Half our table thought it was mediocre and the other half thought it was pretty good. I was on the pretty good side of the vote. I'd come back and even recommend it if someone else was paying, but their food prices are crazy expensive for their shared dishes. $200 for a shared entre! Maybe Telluridians are used to paying ridiculous prices but even if they lowered their prices by 30% they'd be on the high end of the quality they deliver. Al Fresco dining was designed as an after-thought and they could lower their music volume for concrete sidewalks. Much too loud to have an enjoyable conversation.

Great experience except I was very disappointed I couldn’t get a yogurt off the breakfast menu for my very picky son. Ended up having to go next door to get him a slice of pizza as he wouldn’t eat anything from the kids menu.

Disappointing dinner. Delicious breakfast. Service was inattentive and apathetic and brought appetizers and sides at once. Dinner highlight was Harry who handles the wine. Breakfast was delicious. Great coffee and food. Service marginally better.

The "For the Table" entrees were amazing. We dined with our four young adult kids (6 people totaL) who can eat A LOT. We ordered the Halibut and Ribeye and our one son got the 1/2 lb. Wagyu Burger. We had MORE than enough food. The environment was great.. we would have preferred to eat outside but the inside was great too.

The type of music played for dinner guest outdoors was not appropriate. The team was short staffed but did a good job trying to pay attention to all guests. They had more tables than they could handle. The food was well prepared but over priced for the value. There are many restaurants in telluride that deliver a better experience for the money ( The National, 221 Oak, The Sheridan) to name a few. They should either reduce prices or up there game but the current formula doesn’t work long term.

We actually ate there 2 times in 1 week for dinner. First the waiters were great...had different one each night.. The food is delicious. I liked the variety of choices. if you want to eat little you can or or have a fancy steak dinner. One night we did a bowl of chili and my husband had a hamburger. Both excellent. Then our last night in Telluride we shared a large steak. this was a wagu steak and was awesome with a beautiful presentation.
So I liked the variety of choices. The service was great. Thank you for 2 great evenings in Telluride.

I reserved an outside table for 7:15. We were sat at 8pm.🤨
Our waiter amazingly got all of our orders correct while pouring wine and w/out writing them down. 😃. It took over an hour to get our food, and our waiter never stopped by to see if we needed anything or to apologize for the wait.😒. I would have thought he might bring some bread or an amaisbuce to occupy us while we waited? Then, when the food did come, 5 of our 6 dishes were cold! No one stopped by the table to see “if everything was prepared to our liking”; and after a few minutes of looking for an employee, we ate - as by this point, we WERE starving. I know town is short on employees, but this wasn’t handled well at all.
