The food was outstanding at La Marmotte. However, the wait between our appetizers and entree was far too long. We didn’t receive our food until around 10:00pm with a 8:30pm reservation.

There was a large party going on at the same time as a result the service was fair. The appetizers were excellent but the main dishes were fair.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable. The hanger steak a little tough. The lamb chops were the best that we’ve ever had! Salads were excellent. Wine was a good suggestion. Sides were also outstanding. We just had an off steak, I’m sure it was a fluke. The people around us had fabulous meals also.

When we arrived for an 8:30 reservation, we were greeted with a "are you part of the 6?" when I said no, the person at the door (who ended up being the manager said "oh - fine, follow me" The party behind us didn't have their food for over 90 minutes - when they asked to speak to the manager, the manager told them the chef had "stepped out" and hadn't seen the ticket - the manager raised his voice so much telling that party "I don't know what you want me to do? Do you want to leave?" that the customer had to ask him to "keep it down, he had other customers" - it was overall embarrassing and the food was not great to top it off. Very disappointing.

We were very disappointed in both food and service. Waiter was spread too thin and did not take time to listen. $45 tenderloin steak was tasteless and one of us was even given the hard over-done and. The apple tart dessert was luke warm and served with teaspoon of ice cream and this was after waiter said apple tart takes 18 minutes to cook. The sorbet dessert was three tiny tiny dips. Will not be returning despite the fact we had a good meal earlier in summer.

After a long weekend we finished our stay with dinner at La Marmotte. It was superb! They really did a wonderful job with the setting, service, and flavorful food. The creme brûlée was outstanding! It was our one night out without the little ones and La Marmotte made us feel like we were on our first date again lol HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Service was poor. We were a table of six and it took forever to get our apps (soups, salads, and oysters). Other tables who sat down after us all received their hot appetizers before us and when we brought that to the waiter's attention, he dismissed us. Server forgot to take my order altogether and then forgot to bring my appetizer after everyone else had been served. My soup (spring pea) was good but my salad had to be sent back because they forgot to add parmesan and when it came back it was underdressed (by then I had given up and just ate it). My steak tartare was actually cooked (in citrus) which was not only disappointing but off-putting and I think the server should have warned the table about that. The main courses were expensive and mediocre. My martini was good. We won't be going back.

An enjoyable meal in a pleasant ambience. Staff were attentive without getting in the way - thank you George! Food was very good and I had a delightful tuna carpaccio to start followed by the breast of chicken. My date started with the beet salad which she enjoyed and then had a vegetarian plate. The wine list is excellent. I chose a red Burgundy, Aloxe-Cotton, which was delightful and not overpriced. It was of course decanted by the excellent George. I would recommend the restaurant and most certainly return

We have dined at La Marmotte at least 20 times over the last 10 years. While the food is truly delicious they simply do not honor a reservation. Even though you have a reservation, and even if the place is half empty they ritually treat you like dirt and make you wait. It seems to be inbedded in the culture of the place. Mind you, there are many other phenomenal restaurant in Telluride where they greet you with a smile, treat you nicely, and act like human beings. Often we feel unhappy with the way we are treated at La Marmotte.
The whole notion of a reservation does not seem to matter to them. We will no longer be going to La Marmotte anymore. They have been crossed off our list.

It’s rare you go to a restaurant and everything is cooked to perfection. They will mess up one thing or another. This place was perfect in every way. The plate composition was also outstanding using components that really complemented each other. Waiter was very attentive and the inside of this place is adorable. Highly recommend.

I was extremely disappointed with La Marmotte. There were 11 of us in town for a bachelorette party, and the bride really wanted a nice night out. Spoiler alert: it was not a nice night out.

While the food was good, the service was subpar. One of the women found netting in her salad - our waiter, Bill, brushed it off as cornsilk (though he did get her a new salad) - and another woman had a spider in her cappuccino.

The biggest problem we had though was with figuring out the check. Obviously there were 11 of us so I understand that can be annoying to split. So we tried to figure it out on our own. After half an hour of struggling - with Bill butting in every few minutes to see if we were doing okay yet not once offering to just split the damn thing - we ended up $80 short of the total after all cards were billed. We'd been at the restaurant nearly 3 hours by this point and just wanted to leave, so I gave Bill $20 in cash and another woman handed over her card to cover the rest.

Only when we finally got back to our rental cabin for the evening did we realize Bill had pocketed my $20 in cash and charged the entire $80 to the other woman's card.

Chicken breast and mashed potatoes rocked it. Fresh bread helped stave off hunger on our late night dinner. Salads were well executed and eclectic - we could have eaten the fried goat cheese pockets all night long. Scallop appetizer was fabulous. French onion soup was as described - if not a bit untraditional as a purée. Carmel cheesecake was rich, creamy and the perfect ending.

Excellent menu and dining experience. It was the best steak I have ever had. The mashed potatoes with wasabi were wonderful. Exceedingly delicious meal. The art pieces on the walls were a distraction -- not very good at all.

Had high expectations of this place based on other reviews and ratings. The ambiance was the best thing—it an old ice house that used to serve Telluride. But the food just was not great. Disappointed. I had the Coq au vin, which for a French restaurant you think they would nail it. Not so. It was bitter, and the chicken and the potatoes were drowning in the red wine sauce. Two of our party had the spaghetti squash vegetarian dish. Not flavorful—and where was the squash? Meal was very over priced for the value. Sorry.
