great new menu; excellent chef; very good service. Unfortunately, the hotel has placed all of this in what used to be its casual dining room and has turned the more formal room into a lounge with a limited menu. The result is an upscale menu being served in a room full of screaming children who are running around as if they are in a McDonalds. Not a great combination for what should be a better overall experience

Disappointed that this is no longer a family-friendly restaurant. Menu is too esoteric for the ski resort it serves. Won’t be going back during my 4 more weeks in Telluride

When our friends came into town, we wanted to celebrate and treat them to some of Mountain Village's most innovative food. The new chef and menu at Black Iron are wonderful and inventive. Try the Cauliflower Hush Puppies - a perfect starter. Our party had everything from the gumbo to the half chicken to the ribeye - all were spot on. And drinks? Great selection of beers and creative cocktails - finish up your meal with a Flatliner!

Note - our server, Terrence, was PERFECTION. Attentive but not intrusive, fun, funny, and truly invested in us enjoying our time. We will be back!

Cozy with excellent food and service. Unique flavors applied to classic dishes and some dishes that were beyond my imagination. e.g. Cauliflower Hush Puppies.

The Black Iron is a decent stop -- though expensive -- for a lunch bite but our dinner here was terrible. Two people in my party had lukewarm food, and my steak was full of gristle and for the price charged it was a terrible cut of meat. I would expect more from a fine dining establishment. Service was sub-par for the price point. The hostesses were more attentive than the servers. Not sure I'd eat here for dinner again.

My husband and I made reservations at this restaurant to host a brunch for my family to before our daughter's afternoon wedding. Our family members had flown in from Connecticut and Florida. after making the reservations, I placed a call to the restaurant and was assured that the brunch was set up to offer several options for people to chose from. The brunch turned out to be a menu with various choices on it. Many of the food choices offered were seasoned with hot spices and were too hot to enjoy. The food was not delivered in a timely fashion and when it was delivered, some orders were missing food items or a totally different order was given. The staff did not seem to have their act together and the service was poor. We will not go back this restaurant again.

We were a party of 5 adults and 2 children (ages 11 and 13). We did not have a good experience at Black Iron. We were seated for quite a while before a waiter even came to our table. He took our orders and then disappeared. We had to flag down others of the waitstaff to bring us water. When one of the children's steak dishes was undercooked, we asked that it be put back on the grill. The waiter who took it to the kitchen never returned. Finally, when we were all finished and preparing to leave, another waiter came with the steak, much too late. We will not return to Black Iron - - very poor service and only mediocre food.

It's right in the heart of Mountain Village and has a great ambiance. Out of the restaurants we at at in Mountain Village and Telluride the service was the best here. The food was good, but it was fun to sit outside with all of the fire pits going.

There were two of us, my finance and I. She ordered Fish & Chip and I ordered the Salmon. The waiter repeated both orders out load as he wrote them down. When they brought the entrees, her order was incorrect (chicken instead of fish & chips). I sent my order back as well while they corrected the mistake so that we could dine together.

Both entrees were good. However, while the Fish & Chips was an appropriate portion, my salmon entree was very small. The salmon was about the size of a deck of cards and it was sitting on top of a rice patty. Bottom line, I was hungry after dinner. To top things off, I had to flag another wait staff down to get my check after waiting an inappropriate amount of time after completing our meal. While the food was good, the real value of this restaurant is its proximity to the Hotel.

Don't expect much when dining here. Our server was pretty authoritative and rushed us to get our entire order even though half our table hadn't even ordered drinks yet and we wanted appetizers. Food was mediocre. As a server in the industry, I couldn't get over how rushed we felt and overheard our server talking to a co-worker about how we were "easy money" because we were a 7 top with auto-gratuity (he was within one foot of our table when he loudly said this). The energy felt chaotic from the start despite it being half empty in there on a Saturday night. I'd recommend this place if you just want drinks and a snack on the patio in front of the fire, but don't expect a relaxing sit-down dinner as a group.

Quite disappointed. Our server was fair the time to prepare the food when not crowded was ridiculously long, and the food quality was fair at best. My vegetarian tacos were so over cooked that the hardened cheese on the tortilla was truly scorched black and the potatoes were hard as rocks, totally inedible. My daughters grilled cheese was served in a scorching hot dish but the sandwich was cold and the cheese barely melted. We sent it back. My husbands carnitas tacos barely had meat in them. The only dish of quality was my sons pasta with marinara. Server was slow and would disappear. She also didn't know her bar menu. Sorely disappointed.

I have never written a negative report before, but we had such a poor experience I feel compelled to for the first time. We were there with kids and ordered as quickly as possible. Our kids kept saying they were starving, and when the food came out after more than 45 minutes, instead of apologizing, the waitstaff and management argued with us as though they were trying to win a legal battle, instead of simply apologizing and trying to make the situation better.

Seated about the 4th table when they opened for dinner, and took 15 minutes until anyone came over. Ordered a salad which was inedible since the beets were GUMMY. Never had beets of that texture in my life, disgusting. Portabella mushroom sandwich was one of the worst I have had anywhere. I won't go on. There was nothing positive about our experience, which including a screaming child in a stroller in the table next to us. Considering this place is associated with what is considered one of the most high end hotels in Mountain Village, all I can say as a Telluride local is STAY IN TOWN and spend your well earned money at one of our better restaurants. Waste of a gondola ride....won't be back.

I was in Telluride for the weekend and made reservations online a few days in advance on trip advisor. Sadly the online reservation didn't work but i just called the restaurant and made the reservation for Saturday night myself. My group of 6 arrived to and were very impressed by their outdoor dining with the fire. Inside was very cozy and had the perfect atmosphere for a fun group but also romantic for a date. We were one of three parties so it was very nice to enjoy a quite evening. Verses were other friends that ate around town said the restaurants were packed and noisy. The menu was a little short but everyone found something and loved it. We roasted marsh mellows at our table which was a fun experience. Our waitress could not have been more perfect. Their was live entertainment and two tvs on the wall if you wanted to watch a game. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be returning next time I'm in Telluride.

The outdoor dining is fun when you have kids. The fire pits in the middle of the tables cannot be turned down, so after awhile you are baking in Telluride! The food was typical bar food. Great people watching and a terrific location. The best part of the menu was the smores dessert for the kids but this definitely needs adult supervision!

Our server was terrible! It took 10 minutes for our server to come to the table just to get our drink order in a nearly empty restaurant. It took another 10 mins to get our drinks at which time we made our order. Someone else brought our food and we did not see our server again till after finishing our food and having to wait an additional 10 minutes for her to show up on the restaurant floor to flag her down in which time, 2 other patrons were literally waiting by the register also waiting on her to show back up.
