Took a break from festival food to enjoy fine dining.
Fabulous dinner- started with oysters delicious!!
Waiter was good, but rushed the entrees just a little.

Made our special occasion even more special! The lamb was awesome as was the scallops. And you have to have the chocolate cake! Perfect service.

Had french onion soup, good but oily. Entree was scallops. Two med. Sized and a few pieces of a third-maybe this was a bonus? Cooked properly, but very expensive. Poor value.

The salad dressing on the haricots vert salad is THE best in town! The escargots are delicious and this is the ONLY restaurant in Telluride that has them. The lamb was excellent and the ambience is Charming! We love La Marmotte!

Best french onion soup I have eaten, and I have had a lot. Food is very good, pricey but worth it. Atmosphere is relaxing, and the service was outstanding.

There was little “French” about this restaurant. I ordered a salad with chèvre and green beans that had obviously been prepared in advance and stored in a very cold refrigerator. The lobster pasta was uninspired. The stuffed chicken was acceptable. Underwhelming but expensive!

Always a favorite. I had mussels and my wife had the haricots vert salad. Both were delicious and the service and presentation was excellent. Noise level was acceptable making conversation easy. Will always eat here when in Telluride.

We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary while spending a few days in Telluride. Everything was amazing, the food exquisitely prepared and the service immaculate. We will definitely go back. Marta and Richard Leonard

Maybe my expectations were too high, but La Marmotte cane highly recommended from a friend. Sure it was a Tuesday night but their prices are full no matter which night you dine - we had mussels and they tasted as if they were from last Thursday, sauce was fine, but mussels were marginal. Beet salad ok but uninspired for the price. I had scallops and my daughter the chicken - scallops bland with no sear, chicken bland and well over cooked. Derive throughout was substandard - we had bottled sparkling water - the waiter never once refilled our glasses. We started with glasses of Champange - that went ok, but followed with a bottle of wine, not once did the waiter offer to refill or actually refill our glasses. I’m sorry but at $33 and $40 per plate and $80 for the wine I expect SOME service! Ordered the Colorado peach cobbler for desert - much better!!!! Our reservation was at 7:30 and we were taking our time, definitely not up to French standards, all the waiter could think of was getting out of there and made us feel rushed the whole time. Our bill came to $225 and I tipped $40 (WAY overly generous for the quality of food and service) - waiter picked up the signed check and came back to inform us he forgot to charge us for the sparkling water, but oh well if was too late to put it on he bill - I strongly had the urge to offer some service suggestions, such as starting with SERVING the water! Overall very disappointed, I would not recommend.

Was a very good meal. Only issue was at end of meal I ordered coffee which was Luke warm. I told the waitress and she had the coffee nuked and brought it back to me. A class restaurant would have provided a fresh cup of coffee.

Chef Will Nolan and La Marmotte made the most amazing spread of food for 16 of us! We were a huge group and the staff were amazing they went above and beyond to make everything perfect for us. The food was out of this world with the freshest ingredients and unique flavors. Everyone was raving for days and can’t wait till we visit again.

The onion soup was too sweet and just average recipe. The Ribeye was low quality considering it cost $60 for 12oz. We won't eat here again.

Odd when I made an open table reservation it was for 5 for dinner outside. They had us outside at an area for 4 people and had us eating on low cocktail tables. If you are familiar with their food this would be pretty uncomfortable. The area was not particularly clean. There was another big party eating with white table clothes and normal place settings also another table set up for a group with normal accommodations. I am not sure why they said open table reservation was the icky accommodations they offered us so beware. Immediately the host realized I was shocked with what they reserved for us and she offered us a set up inside that was their regular lovely offering of accommodations. Just beware of what you a signing up for, I will be leery about what you are signing up for. I have eaten there multiple times and only had issues with a table the last few times.
