Food is delicious, service was competent but rushed and curt. Expensive despite good portions. Drinks are innovative and tasty.

The food was fabulous; our waiter, not so much. We were seated in the back next to a large birthday party in full swing, so we asked to move toward the front of the restaurant. Begrudgingly, he changed our table, making sure we knew we would have to be out by 8:15pm for the next reservation (it was only 5:45pm). From then on, he treated us with mild disdain throughout the evening. Probably wouldn't have noticed except the other waitstaff were so outgoing and friendly to their patrons.

Sidework never disappoints! This may have been our best meal yet!! The Louisiana seafood mixed grill was amazing as well as the short rib and pork chop. The service, as always, was phenomenal!!

First time at this small but stylish Telluride resto, and we wondered how we had missed it before. Tomato and burrata salad was amazing. Smaller appetites found delicious offerings, and husband and I each got the pork chop, which was tasty.

Not lying, the best meal I’ve in years and my man agreed. Everything was prepared to perfection. Definitely the best scallops we’ve ever had! Service was great, not over bearing. Beautiful ambiance. All around fantastic.

Wish the restaurant were open seven days a week!
Food is a good quality - portions are medium sized. Salads are a bit expensive for what they are, but utterly delicious. My husband ordered the crispy pork, but it surprised him by being cold - don't know if that was on purpose, but he didn't enjoy his selection as much as the rest of the party.
Servers were well informed and efficient.

The wine list had one or three bottles under $80 and then the pricing went crazy. We like to order one or two bottles under $75 that are good and can normally do that, even at an expensive restaurant but not here. Even their $70 wines were vivino 3.5. That was a disappointment.
Most of their food is on boards for grazing and sharing which is fine. We like that, but it was pretentious here. They were out of a couple of items on their regular menu that we thought we'd order but since they were out, no go. That made the experience not really worthwhile and because of their wine list and general pricing, one really needs to spend $400 min per couple and we don't think the value is there.

Favorite restaurant in Telluride. Been many times over last 4 yrs. Has never disappointed. Impressively extensive wine list for a not-so-easy-to-get-to mountain town; nothing is cheap but some decent values and hidden gems, (and a few charming misspellings, eg, “Malescot St Supery” which the 2000 was indeed, but it’s “Exupery” actually)

We had a beautiful table for two outside on the sidewalk (covid careful). Everything was great, I am guessing it is hard to go wrong here. Alex took great care of us and the desert chef, Tania, checked in on us to see how we liked our pineapple upside down cheesecake (which was wicked good, as we say back east)

This was our second time dining at Side Work and the experience was once again very good. We talked about how your pallet becomes so alive from the many amazing flavors present in each delicious item. We will definitely be back. Wish the entree selection was a bit more diverse and pricing a bit more reasonable. A hidden gem in Telluride.

Food very tasty once we got it. 1 hour between apps and entrees.
Small dining room, very noisy. Party of 8 ladies at the next table screamed throughout.
One waiter acted silly and wanted to entertain rather than serve.

We had a great time. Food and service were outstanding. However, it was more expensive than it should have been. As a point of reference, we eat at terrific restaurants regularly, living in Philadelphia and the Jersey shore . A fine dining experience at home would have been about 25% less.

The wine list was impressive, but there were no bottles less than $65, most in the $90+ range. Two glasses of Sauvignon Blanc , admittedly very good, was $38.

The folks that run Sideworks are great! They really make the ambiance and experience at Sideworks unique. The drinks here are outstanding. The food is very good but expect the flavors to be unique. We started our night with French 75 and a charcuterie board, boom! Great! We then had Lobster bisque, fantastic! We closed with a porkchop that was good but slightly overdone, still delicious. We have missed Honga's since it left as our go to first night in town, whew we have arrived experience, Sideworks is now going to be our first stop every time we arrive. Join us, it is worth it!
