Welcome to Sidework
Sorry kiddos you must be 21 to enter.
Perfection, perfection, perfection every time we go, and SO much fun! Shhhh...best food of the best! Best cocktails of the best! And oh the wine...beyond the best!
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.
Amazing food and service!
This is the best place to dine in Telluride! It is Superb
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!!
Great vibe cool concept very good food
Delicious food and amazing ambience. The dishes were out of this world and the cocktails were amazing. The servers were super attentive and special.
Fantastic food made with love and creativity by a chef who is as personable as he is brilliant! Great waitstaff. Ambiance is soothing and sophisticaed. Would highly recommend, and is always at the top of our our list to dine when we are visiting Telluride.
Always a pleasure. Alex and Patrick go way out of their way to make your experience truly special. Bravo!
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.
Amazing as always!
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.
We had a fabulous dinner at Sidework. Truly impressive experience and would definitely go back. It was by far our favorite dinner in Teleuride. The service was impeccable.
Great food. Incredible team !
Our experience at side work was exceptional. Everything Patrick brought to the table was delicious and beautifully presented. No doubt our favorite spot in town!
This was our first time eating at Sideworks. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We had a lovely booth upstairs and were safely distanced from other tables. The craft cocktails and food were delicious.
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)
Outstanding meal! Loved the drink menu and the creative offerings. Highly recommend!
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)
Our dinner and service was amazing as always! Patrick and all the staff are fantastic and the food is incredible!
One of the best dining experiences, let alone in Telluride.
Wonderful!!! Great value, sat outside, attentive but not rushed service, lovely evening! Thank you!
Patrick does an awesome job! Great food. Great service
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.
Cool place. Intimate setting. Food was delicious and unique. Great, friendly staff.
Long time local in Telluride, this is my favorite restaurant!
Very good restaurant. Staff was warm and first rate. Loved the atmosphere. food was a little inconsistent but staff responded in an extremely professional way.
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.
Another excellent meal & dining experience thanks to Patrick & all of the staff. Highly recommended.
Great evening.. delicious dinner.
Best meal in Telluride!
Excellent! Service & food & beverages & staff all excellent! Delicious arugula & roasted squash & pomegranate salad. Exceptional whole roasted branzino & wonderful lamb pot pie. Delicious dark chocolate tart with pistachios. Everyone went beyond to insure a delicious & delightful meal.
Food was good, not great. Took forever to get main dishes.
Our service was the worst I've ever had in my 30 years of coming to Telluride. Not a fan
Waiter had a very bad cold and coughed all over us....
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!
