Fabulous! Will be back!
Great drinks, great food and great service. You can’t go wrong by going there.
Terrible experience and service. So disappointing, we will not be back.
Excellent service. The food very tasty and of good quality. The new chef is amazing and Cristyn was very friendly. We will be back in March guys.
Our meal and service rocked. Kristen was amazing. Ivan is a great manager. Highly recommend the place for all!!!
Private room upstairs was perfect for our group of 7. Our meals were outstanding and the service made us feel like VIPs. Great way to celebrate our first trip to Telluride. We hope to return soon.
The salmon was excellent. The waitstaff was very friendly
Food was good. Pricey. But no complaints. Service was excellent. Serving staff just seemed discombobulated. They recovered well, just kept bringing wrong food and wrong drinks to the wrong tables. After reading reviews, we were hesitant. Thus the problem with people leaving reviews that expect too much. Don’t let the reviews impact your decision to not eat here. We will come back. Hope they streamline servers a little. Sounds as it has been a problem. However, that shouldn’t stop you from going.
wonderful dinner. Rack of lamb amazing
Food was great. Service was lousy. Made four requests just to get water service
Not many french dishes for a french restaurant, but it was excellent. Appetizers and main courses for four of us — each with something different. Taste and presentation were top notch. Service was great too, but the attention waned some after a larger table was seated. Definitely a place we would return to and recommend to others.
We had to send one entree back to the kitchen. The duck breast was too tough to cut with a knife. The waiter asked if we wanted a shaper knife. I had to go find the waiter to return the plate. The other three entrees were quite good. A very uneven night all around.
It is a beautiful place, the food is delicious, the waiter Marin very friendly! Perfect place for a romantic dinner.
I really love La Marmotte. The atmosphere is nice. The drinks and the food is delicious! Our server was very friendly and we felt very welcome!
Excellent place, delicious food, excellent service and attention ... I loved it
We were at La Marmotte for an anniversary dinner, the attention was amazing. The food was perfectly cooked. The wine list is perfect. Thanks for an excellent night.
Looked forward to a memorable meal. Food less than average, at best amateur. Service ok. No reason to return under current circumstances.
ANOTHER FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!!! The food and the service couldn’t be better. Dined there for 20 years of Telluride ski trips and have never been disappointed!! Jennifer, our head server, was a true professional, as well as her supporting staff!!! Our daughter, who is a vegetarian, wanted something different for a salad than offered. Jennifer made some great suggestions based on our daughters input and the kitchen went wild creating a fantastic dish. No issues, no attitudes, just happy to please. Fantastique!!!!
Bland food, Luke warm, noisy table near kitchen, service was confused
Our food was delicious, and the service was excellent.
We had the best dinner in our holiday season. Venison Loin is Telluride's best dish.
Unfortunately we did not experience the best food or service when we dined here. Pork chop was so tough could barely cut it, chicken was great, had to ask several times for refills on drinks. Just expected a better experience for the $600+ bill. Would not go back.
This place is a disaster in almost every way. So many negatives but one amusing anecdote worth sharing - while ordering we had a 5 minute argument with our server who insisted that the venison was “pork” and thus must be cooked all the way through. He eventually went back to the kitchen to clarify. This used to be one of the best restaurants in Telluride, so I hear. Don’t waste your time and money.
Wonderful dining experience
We had a romantic dinner and the food was excellent. The best French onion soup appetizer.
My husband and I had the best dinner. The venison loin was cooked perfectly. The service was excellent. They changed the chef and the new one makes it amazing. The best in Telluride
Despite a number of recent questionable reviews, we had a very good experience. While there are a few kinks, new owners are clearly committed to a first rate experience. We have been fans for over 10 years and continue to be. Wine list has some very interesting selections. We will return soon.
Everything was delicious. A bit expensive, but it was New Years Eve, so a bit expected. Loved the overall ambiance.
Been going here for years and prior ownership was vastly superior from what we’ve seen thus far.
8pm reservation yet we didn’t get any food until 10pm. Ridiculously bad service. Salmon tartare about a week old. They fired the chef this week. Stay away.
It's really unfortunate what has happened to the service at La Marmotte - it definitely has me rethinking a return visit.
We waited about 15min after our set reservation to be seated, it's a very busy holiday weekend so were not concerned with this. After being seated in the bar area we waited over 20min for the waiter to take a drink over. We noticed how scatterbrain and aloof the staff in that area seemed to be so decided to place our entire order at that time to speed up service. The waiter was unable to answer basic menu questions. We asked multiple people about our apps before them arriving to the table. We waited a very long time after we finished these for the mains to come - the waiter never reappeared. When he would pop back into the room he looked like a deer in headlights and would run away. Overall service was a 0.5/10 - the manager on duty was just as terrible. The entire waitstaff needs retraining and hopefully from someone other than the less than competent manager.
The food wasn't terrible, not as great as previous visits (3.5/5) but the service was so atrocious the food can't over compensate for it.
Hopefully the owner is reading these reviews as of late and works on staffing issues to bring La Marmotte back to great restaurant it once was.
I have seen mixed reviews for La Marmotte but we had excellent service and food -- service could be as a result of the new manager. Lamb was PERFECT, as was the Duck and Foie Gras.
Maybe the best in Telluride.
We have loved this restaurant for a decade and hope it gets back to its glory. Went for dinner. Food was not good...even the staples were a tad off. Dessert and appetizers were cold. Servees Need to be trained from where to place their hands when they serve a dish to ...well, they just really need to be trained. ”. We will be back but ...skip it this trip. Very sorry to say.
The waiter (Romanian man) was amazing as was the food. The Host was very confused and even though the they were not that busy he seemed frazzeled. The bartender Cody was great. Other staff were less than friendly. The atmosphere felt disjointed and odd. Overall the experience was challenged even though the food was incredible.
La Marmotte is a very authentic Telluride place. Food is main street. Wine list is good and service is friendly....
La Marmotte is a modern French-influenced restaurant in the awesome town of Telluride. The restaurant is classy and relaxed, with a lovely staff. The second level of the building is where the prep happens, but on the ground floor there is a kitchen suspended above the main dining floor, where you can watch the magic happen. I would suggest the Scotland Salmon. One of the best seafood meals I've had far away from the ocean – A must stop in Colorado! I can't wait to come back.
Food and service has really declined .
Nice place for a date night. Wasabi mash potatoes were a nice twist. Except “mountain time” service. If you’re in a hurry for dinner, not the place to go. Ambiance was very nice.
