Sidework is a cozy 1950's styled American lounge in an intimate setting that offers a full menu composed of sharable plates, craft cocktails, fresh home brews and an extensive, well curated wine list.

Due to Covid restrictions, we currently have limited outdoor dining available for a limited number of parties each night but we are offering all of our menu items to go. We do not have any indoor seating available at the moment which greatly limits our capacity to serve guest.

Please call us or visit our website for more details. If you have made a reservation through OpenTable, please expect a call from us regarding your reservation as there is no indoor dining available in San Miguel County. Please do not plan on anything until you have heard from us. Thank you for your patience and we hope to see you soon.

Cheers,
Sidework

    The new chefs - Mark and Tara - have made a great place even better. Irresistible food. Warm, professional service. A rare bubble in which the meaning of “hospitality” hasn’t been forgotten.

    We are in Telluride for our first time and pulled this up on OpenTable. It was a hit. The charcoaled octopus was amazing. The shrimp tapas and salad with green goddess dressing where equally is good. I asked the bartender to fix me up telling him my likes and he was spot on. They truly want to please their customers.

    The food was phenomenal and service was outstanding! We were a table of 4 and elevated to get a series of starters and share plates to try. The octopus and shrimp had so much flavor and the pork belly and mushroom croquettes we definitely a table favorite. We also highly enjoyed a serving of oysters as well as the seared tuna. We finished everything that was served to us and had no complaints about the food. We got one of each dessert item and cleaned those plates as well, despite being very full after our meal!Everything was amazing! The entree menu looked excellent as well so we will certainly be back for more!

    This was a very disappointing yet expensive meal. We were here a few years back and it was great. The food was VERY expensive and was mediocre at best. It was a Monday night and there was no one in the restaurant so I think they were just off their game.

    This is a great cozy Restuarant with an ever changing unique menu. We come often. Drink selection is awesome and our food was great, but the kitchen seemed a tad slow, especially b/c it wasn’t at all crowded. Probably a staffing issue so not a big deal, but generally this place is more efficient. Our waiter was great though and very attentive. We’ll be back and will recommend to others.

    There were 8 in our group and everything was great! We got a few appys for the table to share and we all ended up ordering the fish dish for our dinner and added shrimp/scallops at our waiter’s suggestion. It was all mouth-watering good! His suggestion for wine was excellent as well. Some of our group had dined here before, but it was mine and my husband’s first time and I can say we will be back!

    Food was good. From the host to the server, we found them to be very rude throughout the entire meal. We had to ask to be waited on several times while the table next to us was being attentiveIy taken care of by the same waiter. The tables are super close. We were very polite the entire time. I would rather be at a place that is more inviting than this. For that reason I don’t recommend.

    If you want a pretentious but delicious experience, come here. Food is great. We just kept the dishes coming and everything was good! Drinks were yummy too. Tables are very close together so feels like you can’t have a private conversation and you hear all your neighbors’ business. Service was standoff-ish and seemed annoyed every time we ordered. Bill was pricey but was expected. I think I’d come here again on a less busy night when we wouldn’t be squeezed in and service is less stressed.

    Food was very good but service which started out well declined considerably. It took a very long time to get entrees although larger groups who ordered at the same time or later received theirs well before we were served. And after the check was delivered no one returned to take our credit card for quite some time so we finally got up from our table and found our server talking with other employees. We understand staffing challenges restaurants have but we felt like we’d been forgotten.
