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

We had the creole eggplant caponata, black garlic hummus, and smoked salmon dip. It was all amazing. Next we had the corn and crab bisque and it was so damn good 10/10. Then the red snapper over polenta which was incredible. Good for sharing with others.

The chicken dish was overcooked chicken breast cut in two and served over a large amount of faro. It was dry and flavorless. The soup was served at room temperature and then cooled down quickly from there. The deserts were contrived as well as entire menu, really. This restaurant would close in a week if it was in NY. The ambiance is good but no one would put up with ridiculously expensive contrived food and an expensive wine list that had practically nothing under $100/bottle.

Quite possibly the worst experience I have ever had dining. The first time I did not leave a tip in my life. The service was non existent - we were barely acknowledged. Not greeted at all with welcome we will be with you shortly. We had no idea who are waiter was for the first 45 minutes. We had to flag down someone for water. It was a complete joke. No one even came by to apologize for the slow service. Have never experienced anything like that in my life. Do not at all recommend. Would never go back. A slice at Baked in Telluride would have made for a better evening. Totally overpriced for average food on top of it all.

Great food, great atmosphere. Service was indifferent but didn’t get in the way. Probably the best short rib I’ve ever had.

The place is really cool and now that I’m writing this, I’m betting that like most other establishments, they have very little staff. Our server was most of the time non-existent. The food was good and I would try it again but the evening took forever.

Apathetic, inattentive service with zero personality. The service, coupled with $40-50 mediocre entrees make Sidework a no-go for us. Additionally, a “speakeasy” should have classic, prohibition era cocktails mastered. They should also have the liquors/liqueurs stocked to make these cocktails.

Go to The National. The food, service and vibe are all superior to Sidework. Bummer…we wanted to like it.

Maybe it was an off night, but our server seemingly couldn't be bothered with us, walking away before our order was complete. Both the shrimp skillet and the pork chop were overcooked. Plenty of other restaurants in Telluride with better value for the experience.
