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

    Very attentive staff, creative cocktails, and amazing food! Some of the most inventive combinations of ingredients and in a mostly-small-plate format makes for a truly delightful experience without your leaving stuffed. We really appreciate Alex our waiter and his impeccable service.

    As always, we had a great experience dining at Sidework. The food was fantastic, and the service was excellent. They also have a great selection of cocktails and wine. I highly recommend the Crispy Farm Egg, and Wild Mushroom Croquettas for appetizers. For the main course, we had the Whole Roasted Branzino (enough for two people). The Braised Short Ribs are fantastic as well.

    Came for our 1 year anniversary. This spot never disappoints, they even helped me to surprise my fiancé with a ring. We loved the octopus and the bison, overall everything was exceptional. Our drinks were great too! “Orange You Glad” is such a clever name for a cocktail and delicious. We will come back again and again!

    There were 5 of us. The entrees were at the level of poor fast food. I've had wonderful meals there in the past, so I don't know what happened in the kitchen, but we were all upset about it given the prices.

    SideworkResponded on October 13, 2022Hello, I am sorry you felt this way while visiting. Please feel free to contact us at the restaurant, so we can better understand what went wrong and how we can make it right with you. We apologize you felt the entrees were not up to standards. -Exec Chef, Tara

    Jim our waiter was pleasant and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was out of works, the spices and selection. The only thing I would recommend is to dampened the sound in the front room by adding some soft items to the ceiling. It can get a bit loud in the front dining area. We’ll be back for more!

    While the service and venue were pleasant, I found that between our meal last year and this meal that possibly the management had changed. The appetizers were good but nothing one could not make at home, the entrees were much more expensive as well as the drinks. Nice atmosphere but it was not a reasonably priced menu.

    Fantastic as always. We are Telluride locals and this is our go to spot - for ourselves and when friends are in town. The lamb is my absolute favorite but they had just run out. Happy to try something new and really enjoyed the salmon. Tried several apps and the octopus and yellowfin tuna were the two favorites of the table.

    SideworkResponded on August 30, 2022Thank you for making Side Work one of your go to spots! We are sorry we ran out of lamb that evening, but thrilled to know you enjoyed our other entrees and apps as well. Be sure to come in and enjoy our lamb dish one, or maybe two more times before our menu change for fall/winter! Cheers! Tara, Executive Chef
