We love the National! One of our favorites in telluride!!! Such a gem.....
After a couple of years in business this restaurant has hit its stride with top notch food and service. One of the top 5 restaurants in Telluride for sure.
Good atmosphere and wonderful meal. Don’t miss the desert menu - delicious!
The food was superb. The menu was so creatively designed, and there are many healthy options. The wine that the very knowledgeable Sommelier recommended was outstanding. We really appreciated the ambience and the architecture that was created in a very historical building. They respected the architecture, yet decorated in a very modern sleek way with very warm results.
One of our favorite restaurants! Amazing innovative food and service always outstanding!
EVERYTHING WAS EXCELLENT! Make sure you get the bread pudding for dessert. Just insanely delicious and im not especially a big bread pudding guy.
The staff at the National was fantastic! The food was terrific and we had a really great time. It was both of our sons’ birthday dinner and they loved it!
Great food and company
LOVED THE FOOD IT WAS GREAT. BUT WAY OVER PRICED.
We enjoyed every minute!
Had the braised lamb shank and had sickness badly day after. Terrible table location in dining room.
Lovely restaurant and service was very good (Bill) but I don’t be back.
Great all around. Wonderful food and service.
Always have the best time at National. Food, service and comfy chairs!
Highly recommend. Everything was amazing. Make sure you save room for dessert!
All around great place! Warm atmosphere, attentive waitress, beautiful presentation of food, taste of everything was excellent and fun, fabulous cocktails! Definitely a place to come back to-thanks for a great evening!
It was our last night of vacation and the only reservation we could get was at 5:15 at a high top. It was very comfortable, but make reservations several days ahead of time to have a choice of times and seating choices. Our waiter, Treavor, was very attentive and personable. We had the filet and the salmon, and both were delicious! The bread pudding with ice ream was recommended by Treavor and it was so good. It was a lovely evening!
Eclectic wine list, 6 of us Salmon looked to be the best choice, duck wasn’t anything special . Ice cream cake for desert don’t miss.
Should offer more small portions or wait staff should advise when something could be shared
The place was only opened a bit over a year ago. This was our first opportunity to visit since, and for our money it is a strong contender for best place in town. The dishes that we had were imaginative, flavorful, and carefully prepared. The wine list was cleverly conceived. High marks indeed.
Best table in town! May be even between SF and NY! Great atmosphere!
What a great group of people over at the National. They always make you feel like it’s a special night. Food is fabulous and the atmosphere is amazing. Favorite spot in Telluride!
A fun vibe but way too noisy - everyone was leaning over their tables trying to hear each other. No noise mitigation whatsoever! Banquettes were a little too tight (wait staff could hardly get between them) and banquettes and chairs were not at the same level which is just poor design. The glass walls of wine are gorgeous. Food was good but not amazing.
Tha National is simply outstanding. The level of detail in preparation of the dishes is superb. Only nit: if you order the whole branzino, be prepared to debone it yourself. Delicious however. Great wine selection if you ask for help.
This place is really loud. It’s probably a good dining experience if you are in a large group and don’t mind yelling from one end of the table to the other and can yell louder than the next table over. Food was OK: sea bass and an appetizer.
Prices were Telluride typical, high but not outrageously so.
Good portion. Good food. The whole fish was excellent.
Excellent preparation, very fresh and good taste complexity. Service was outstanding. Highly recommend.
Love this place!! Amazing food and awesome wine list! Don't miss out on this gem!
Tremendous food and atmosphere! The staff is on point and fun!!
Hands down, Telluride’s best! Killer food, amazing cocktails, great service with a super cool ambiance.
Fabulous dining experience from start to finish!
Soup (cashew cauliflower) was esp. good but the Salmon and Duck were perfect too. Skip the bread pudding though - too gluey.
Absolutely fantastic experience. Best restaurant we’ve been too so far in T’Ride.
First time dining at The National. Really enjoyed the meal!
Food was delicious as we tried a nice variety on Bill’s recommendations! Place was lively and very pretty inside. Perfect family outing on our last night of vacation! Will definitely come back next year...
One of the best dining experiences I have had in the past year. Don’t miss it!
Food was spectacular! Drinks were fabulous! We love David and Marin!!
The National never disappoints on any level!!
An excellent spot for dinner or drink in Telluride !!
We sat at the bar and had a great experience
Went for New Year's Eve.Menu was prix fixe ( a little o n the high side) but turned out to be the best meal I have had in a long time. It was worth every penny. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
We had an absolutely wonderful meal there last night! Love the ambiance and they were totally able to accommodate and understand a gluten allergy! The beef tenderloin was delicious and my husband loved the duck! We will make a reservation there as soon as we boo our next trip to Telluride!!
Terrible waiter! But the rest of the experience was good. Great ambiance.
