Our favorite place that we dined in Telluride the entire week. We had a large party of 9 and had dinner in the upstairs attic which gave us some privacy. Our waiter was fantastic. They have an excellent wine selection as well as craft cocktails. The food was superb. Thanks for a great last night in Telluride!

La Marmotte is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. The warmth, hospitality ... and the food and wine is amazing. A trip to Telluride is incomplete without a dinner at LM.

Marmotte has been a tradition for our annual friends ski trip the last five years. We always attend on the last night and it never fails to disappoint. The food is always fabulous with lots of new interesting things on the menu every time. The staff is superb. The ambience is perfect. The deviled eggs appetizer is excellent. The Coq a vin perfect after a full day of skiing. Would highly recommend!!

I think this restaurant is over rated. The lamb chops were delicious but our experience was tainted by a waiter who forgot to put in our appetizers and suggested the $100 glass of cognac every time he came to the table. I suggest skipping it.

Under new ownership, La Marmotte seems to be continuing and improving on its great French bistro fare. We shared the lamb chops and the dish was perfect. Service was understated but always available, so we never felt interrupted from enjoying our meal. I rated 4 instead of 5 stars on "ambiance" because we were seated near the entrance and closer to the path of food service, but really this had minimal impact on our experience. I expect we'll return again and again.

All the servers and manager were wonderful and attentive. The food, however, just wasn't up to par and very expensive. The French Onion Soup is a very strange texture as it is pureed instead of the traditional broth, onion, gruyere and bread soup. All of our meals were over salted, and we felt that was one of the only seasonings that were used. The wine list is over the top expensive and very few French wines. Their menu is not listed online anywhere, and honestly we probably would not have gone, had we known that all their pricing was so high. They have a great staff so I hope their food can get up to the level it should be at. One other note, they had the strangest "cool jazz" music playing. We were there late so maybe that was why, still a strange mood to have in a french restaurant.

A local mentioned there was new ownership and we decided to give it a try. We were disappointed in the food. No good French sauces, fairly bland preparation. The vegetables were supposed to be 'small green' and were just large soggy slices of zucchini. The ambiance was nice and the staff was very pleasant but it was not really a high end French restaurant. I'm sure they will improve and it was not a bad restaurant at all, just didn't meet expectations.

I had the special short rib - it was a little grisly and the mashed potatoes overcooked and runny. Disappointed as it was a special and should have been perfect. Everything else was very good. Excellent service.

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.

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.

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!!!!

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.
