We were a party of six. We were treated like we were special and at a private event! Everything was above and beyond even though it was the day before Telluride closed all restaurants did to the virus!
Phenomenal experience! Excellent service, delicious food, special experience!
Alway's a treat for us when in Telluride. We have been doing for 15 years!
An absolutely wonderful evening start to finish. Staff was superb. The food was wonderful and the ambience perfect. We can’t wait to comeback.
Ate here almost five years ago when the food experience was much better. Here’s a dish by dish description.
Escargot - cooked properly, poorly seasoned. Little or no garlic flavor and under salted.
Lamb chops - tough, difficult to cut even with the steak knife provided. A bit off tasting.
Scallops - presentation pretty, celery root purée delicious, but under cooked. Not seared and one of the three was actually cold, not quite frozen though.
Eclair dessert - filling was yellow and slightly stale. The ice cream was very good.
Dear Falmito, Thank you for your feedback. Best, La Marmotte Team
Very good food, would eat there again and do recommend it.
Dear Kevin, Merci beaucoup for your kind review! All the best, La Marmotte Team
La Marmotte is a Telluride staple. We have enjoyed it for years. Food continues to be very good. Service was a little slow on this occasion. That being said, still one of our favorites.
We come to Telluride every year but somehow missed this place. Fantastic in every aspect. Very kind, friendly and attentive service. Great staff. Great food.
Dear rroddy13, We are delighted that you discovered our little gem! Please come back soon so we can do it all over again. Very sincerely, La Marmotte Team
Great food, great experience!
Dear DebS, Merci beacoup! La Marmotte Team
Phenomenal dining experience - one of my favorites in Telluride. The staff was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. A lovely gem in Telluride, and absolute must for dinner.
Dear Guest, Heartfelt thank you for such a kind review!!! We are delighted you found us and please come back soon. La Marmotte Team
Amazing meal. Really enjoyed the food and ambience.
Just everything was great.
Thank you.......! La Marmotte Team
We ate at 4 restaurants at Telluride that week. This was by far the best. Excellent food and service.
Dear ToddH, We are all smiling....'By Far the best....' we could not have asked for a kinder guest and review. Warm regards, La Marmotte Team
We ordered escargots, salad, mussels and scallops and had a delightful variety of great tastes.
Our sever was the best! Great food and amazing experience overall. Will come back for sure
Very good. Menu on trip advisor was not the menu they have when we got there but it was still very good
Best dinner we had in telluride! Everything was awesome!
Our waiter and our food were fantastic!
The food was good, but nothing special and not worth the hype or the price. The wine list was good as was the service.
Food was superb especially the seared scallops and green apple salad. Service was right on. The wine list for bottles, however, was outrageous. I believe that I counted only 3 or 4 bottles less than $100. You would do better in a 3 star restuarant in Paris.
Our waiter Marin was great. Knowledgeable and pointed us toward delicious dishes and the best wine.
Fantastic. Our best meal over the past two years!
The rack of lamb, lobster tagliatelle, and coq au vin were all delicious. Highly recommend the chocolate eclairs!
Food was bland. Waiter well trained in upselliing.
Food was okay. They were kind enough to call ahead of time to let us know their credit card machine was not working. I asked for cappuccino or coffee as I had a bad migraine. Waitress said their machine was down. Later I found out that they had coffee.
Great meal and ambiance
Food was delicious and service was great. What happened at the beginning of the meal gave the rest of the dinner a bitter taste. As we walked in we were greeted with a terse comment that if we didn’t have cash don’t eat here. They were having computer problems that evening but the way it was said was extremely offensive. We did have cash and paid for the meal but this incident has caused me to consider never going back.
We’ve been coming for 15+ years and it’s always been a favorite, but I won’t return after horribly arrogant, terrible service and good, but not great food. We couldn’t get a wine list to save our lives, although we had asked our server, the Host and then another server. When we finally did get a wine order in -
we waited so long that our first course was delivered and nearly finished when I had to again ask the Host to see if our wine was sitting at the bar? Our Server was extremely condescending when I inquired if there was a prix fixe (as had been in years past at La Marmotte) and he rolled his eyes and stated “Golden Corral maybe?” And continued to attend to a larger table and ignored us for the most part.
The mussels were bland. The snapper was good but lacked complexity. We had to ask for more dressing on a mediocre Caesar which was supposed to come with kale but showed up with a tiny fleck of dark green. The lobster tagliatelle with truffles was very good.
The thimbleful sized old fashioned was delicious.
In the end, We decided to skip dessert out of sheer frustration.
Sorry to see our annual favorite romantic place feeling like a common tourist café churning it out with no attention to detail.
The minute I walked through the door and was greeted, I knew this was going to be a great experience. Our server Marin was amazing and knowledgeable. We even had the chance of speaking to Chef Rafael who offered to surprise us with his choosing of appetizers. Boy were we surprised! Whenever I see foie gras in the menu I order it and hands down this is the best I’ve ever had anywhere. Everything else was amazing. Honestly, I never thought we were going to enjoy this so much. Definitely deserves to be in the Michelin list.
Happy Hour! $8/ glass of wine, but we paid $75 for the bottle. Why? Our server, Kristen, informed my wife and me that the bottle is not on the Happy Hour menu!
We eat here every year we visit Telluride. I will expect a different experience next year.

We are from Orlando and our friends live in Telluride how lucky are we to have the opportunity to visit this extraordinary restaurant!! The house cab was our favorite “Camus”, the bread was amazing our friends had the wagyu beef and we opted for healthy portion of the lobster dish which was beyond phenomenal! Desserts were on point. . Brian our server was a gentlemen and very knowledgeable of menu ! Thanks for the great experience we will be back !
One of our favorite restaurants in Telluride. The food is fabulous. I was disappointed that the beet salad is no longer on the menu, but we ordered the Caesar and apple salad. Both were fresh and delicious. Also love the service. The manager greeted us and made us feel welcome. The wait staff was also attentive, helpful and personable. Overall, it is a delightful place to have a special meal.
Terrific place. Not too busy. Excellent service. Our entrées were wonderful.
Great service by the whole team and outstanding value during happy hour. We especially enjoyed the deviled eggs with caviar and lobster pappardelle--exceptionally delicious!
Fantastic meal from the starters to the main dish everything was tasty and delicious
Amazing, we had a great time and definitely worth it.
Valentine's Day dinner at La Marmotte was a typically wonderful experience, although the fixed price cost of $195 per person was over the top.
We were there for Valentine's Day. They had a four course prix fixe menu with champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and a rose at the end of the evening. The food and service were excellent. It was a relaxing and very enjoyable dining experience. Could not have asked for a better Valentine's Day dinner.
My husband and I had a lovely Anniversary/Valentines dinner at La Marmotte. Without doubt one of the best meals we have ever had in Telluride. The manager was especially accommodating to our request for alternative first course We had instead the best seared scallops we have ever tasted. The lobster bisque was unusual and deliciously spiced. The barramundi with oyster mushrooms was wonderful as was the vegetarian mushroom risotto my husband ordered.
The tiramisu was was totally delicious. Maybe the best we’ve ever had. Our server was charming and attentive. The manager introduced himself and made sure we were happy with all our choices
The atmosphere was charming and has an intimate feel. The noise level was low although there were many other diners
La Marmotte strayed too far from their French roots and is on their way home again, I hope... !! Nicely presented and delicious, interesting food... dessert offerings weren’t every exciting but pretty, rich and expectedly delicious. I remember the days when La M’s desserts were worthy of a trip just for dessert!
