It was great! Cool little restaurant and the food was excellent! I got engaged the same day and they let you “sword” a bottle of champagne. Great experience
Great service and lovely ambiance.
Great ingredients makes for great food. Very tasty dinner and drinks with excellent service
One of the very best restaurants in Telluride! We love this place! Service is attentive, without feeling rushed. Great atmosphere! Food is wonderful & has been every time we’ve eaten here. Shrimp app is a must. Heirloom tomato salad & filet both delish! We will be back!
We love The National. The food, the service and the ambiance are outstanding. They always make great cocktails and their wine selection is superb.
This place is incredible and the best addition to Telluride!
When you splurge on fine dining, it better be good and worth your dollar. The National is excellent and worth your time and money.
Every dish and service was fantastic!!! Going to be a regular for a month :)
Bobby was our waiter & he was amazing and super informative! He gave us incredible descriptions on the wine & menu items. Service couldn't of been better!! Our appetizers were AMAZING! But our entres were overly salted :(
I got the halibut special and my boyfriend ordered the strip, both pieces of meat were cooked to perfection...just too salty. Wish the steak would've had more side options other than fries. Maybe next time we will order all apps since they were so delicious! Thanks for the nice evening!
Everything about The National was first rate. The decor, the service, the food was all exceptional. We will definitely go back.
Amazing meal! Fav dinner in Telluride
It was wonderful! The food is great, service is awesome and Katie did an excellent job of helping us pick a great wine.
This place is always awesome!
sat outside. just a street but still quite nice, more quiet than inside
bar is neat
Abosolutely wonderful delicious. Jeffrey Williams recommended it and it lived up to it.
An absolutely incredible meal from start to finish! The short-rib appetizer was exceptional. The pistachio encrusted trout was delectable as was the accompanying sauce. The service was prompt without being too rushed. One of the best restaurants in Telluride and a can't miss!
Awesome as usual. One of our favorite restaurants in Telluride.
The National was amazing! Can't wait to visit Telluride again so I can eat there again.
Best Negroni! Everyone enjoyed their meals. We ordered the scallops w beluga lentils, clams and linguini and the lamb shank.
The service was friendly and wonderful. The wine was fantastic :-)
My favorite restaurant in Telluride!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Host called 45 minutes prior to reservation just to make sure we were coming as our table was under demand- We arrived on time but they clearly gave our table away to someone who lingered so we had to wait.
Brussel sprouts were undercooked and lacked sauce. Duck ordered medium rare came out brown- way overcooked.
Cool place but overpriced and lacked quality.
It was great dinner to celebrate our engagement in telluride. Great service, great food, great atmosphere.
More than just the trendy place in town...I’m so glad we finally tried it! Delicious!
Food and service was amazing!
My favorite meal of our vacation in Telluride! The interior is gorgeous and the tables are well spaced for distancing. Absolutely loved the Blue Grouse Bread and Butter to start. Next was the tempura rock shrimp and the wagyu carpaccio, both great. For entrees we had the braised lamb shank and the filet and both were so hearty and flavorful. Ice cream for dessert was delicious.
The National is my favorite restaurant in TRide!!
Always fabulous cuisine & gracious staff & David makes the best Negroni EVER!! 💙😷💙
Best cocktails, food ambience & service in Telluride!
LOVE the food and perfectly attentive service! Wish there were fans and A/C to mitigate the hot dining areas. We left without the dessert course at 9:15 to escape the heat.
Excellent food from the appetizers and drink options to the main meal and dessert. Also wonderful friendly service ! A must to go to when in Telluride!
Came here for our anniversary during COVID. Service was wonderful and inviting. The drinks were exceptional but the flavor of some of the dishes were lacking. Would come back for the burger.
Everything we ordered was very good. Waiter forgot my wife's glass of wine until after she finished her entree, but other than that a great experience.
Good but not awesome, some of the apps we're uninspired. Steak was well cooked tho
Went back the second night! They have 3 seatings and were as accommodating as possible. Food was interesting but not mysterious! Very enjoyable and not strange.
We love everything about The National. The service and food is outstanding and the gluten-free options are vast which is a huge deal for me. Top on our list!
As always, our favorite spot in Telluride :)
One of our best meals ever. The shrimp appetizer is amazing and the scallops are to die for. Great service, beautiful space, and we will be back again for certain.
Great food and great service! We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner from start to finish. The bread with rosemary butter was a fabulous start. Then we had tasty filets with the best fried green beans I've ever had. We finished it off with two of their deserts--both delicious. This was our first trip to The National, but we will be back for sure!
First time we have had dinner at a restaurant indoors since March. Felt perfectly safe. They have gone all out to make it that way.
Had one of the best scallop dishes that I have ever had. The lentils and citrus sauce went perfectly with the scallops. The candied beet salad was excellent. Would definitely order both dishes again.
The only disappointment was the coconut ice cream that I had for dessert. It was bland.
