Four of us dined at this restaurant and found the food to be delicious, the wine excellent, and the cocktails quite enjoyable. Our waiter was prompt, courteous, and helpful. One entree was overcooked but good nevertheless. All in all, a very enjoyable evening.

The only thing I can comment in is I asked if salad area was free of nuts because I was highly allergic. The waitress assured me that they would pre clean and make sure there was no contamination. I actually had an allergic reaction after we left the restaurant. I would just suggest trying to have nut free area .

$200.... Poor atmosphere. Smelled like chlorine in the dining room and people in robes and wet towels walking through the dining room. Awful experience and would never recommend EVER.

The restaurant itself is beautiful. Fantastic setting. The pre-fixe menu had some good options on it and the food was decent not great, and two dishes came out cold. The waiter seemed nice and very helpful initially. However, he attempted to overcharge us $120+ because he accidentally keyed in an entire bottle of rum and again an entire bottle of vodka rather than an individual drink. Then there was an auto gratuity of 22%. I generally like to think the best of people, but hard to see someone accidentally doing something twice in a row, not to mention the 22% grat on a $1100 bill. Hopefully it was an honest mistake but I had to catch it.

Fabulous food - everything was delicious, terrific waiter, and very nice ambiance (we sat by the fire!). Our party tried the steak, chicken, and fish along with appetizers and dessert. Loved the chocolate mousse! But everything was great! This was a very special dinner that we will remember for a long time. And thanks again for the shuttle ride back to the gondola station (it started snowing so this was especially nice)! The View has a great view, but beyond that it also has great service and great food!

Great view. Excellent service. Truly, best service on a long time. It’s a prefix menu, for $65 you have 4 courses with dessert. Worth it. You should stop here if you are in Telluride!

This appropriately named restaurant--the view from the dining area is beyond compare--has been our Telluride favorite for about 10 years. We've always had a 5 star meal for quality & value. The upscale, indoor pre fixe effort is a nice alternative, given present dining restrictions in Colorado. A meal by a crackling fireplace in the Lodge is "what you want" after a day of skiing or hiking/biking (in the Spring/Summer/Fall). My wife's brie quesadilla was truly delightful, while my artichoke dip was quite nice. The leek bisque she ordered was excellent, and my Caesar salad was fresh and clean. She enjoyed her NY strip over campfire beans while I went for the comfort of grilled chicken breast over au gratin potatoes&corn. Both were just perfect, as was my creme brulee. Highly recommend the chocolate studded big whiskey bread pudding which was the star of the meal.

Everything was fabulous! From our arrival welcome, through every course and our departure, we were treated to an amazing dining experience. We were greated warmly, seated promptly, and the food and wine suggestions were perfect. All of the four appetizers: Beef Tenderloin Carpaccio, Pan Flashed Mussels, Brie Quesadilla, Grilled Artichoke, were sampled and thoroughly enjoyed. The salad and soup options were delicious. Everyone raved about their entree. I had the Blue Cheese Basted Petite
New York Strip medium rare w/Campfire Barbeque Beans, Grilled Asparagus and Tobacco Onions. It was amazing! The steak was prepared perfectly and the Campfire beans and smoky onions added a casual flair to an amazing dinner. The desserts were over the top and delicious. The vanilla bean ice cream served with the Chocolate Studded ‘Big Whiskey' Bread Pudding was decadently heavenly! Everything was plated beautifully. Their team provided top-notch service. Can't wait to return to The View!

The food, service and ambience were very good, but the prices were outrageous. $10 for a bottle of water that I did not want. I asked for water, assuming a pitcher of table water would be coming in my direction. No! An overpriced bottle of flat water was opened and served before I could say anything. As stated, the meals were very good, but also very, very overpriced. Value for money- definitely not at this place!

The surroundings are unbelievably beautiful. Value is great. Too bad the food is poor., Had "new york strip" a very easily identifiable cut. What we got - was nothing like it, not a strip, and of very poor gristle-quality. Left most of it.

The prix fix menu is well intentioned but too much of a reach for the kitchen. For instance, the beef carpaccio delivered on a hot plate, not cold! By the time it arrived, it was thinly sliced well-done filet.

The halibut entre was crazy spicy hot. I mean like, habenero hot! It was too hot to eat and we eat spicy food all the time. Also, it was served too late after it was cooked and plated as it was both cold and overcooked by the time it was delivered. Didn't eat.

The paella was contrived. Paella is formulaic and the chef went off formula and created something that should have a different name. It wasn't fidebua and it wasn't paella. Call it "seafood mishmash with white rice" as it had no flavor and they even made a point of saying, "saffron scented rice". That didn't mean there was saffron in the rice because there wasn't any.

Desserts were creative and mostly delicious. The chocolate mousse was fine, even excellent as well as the creme brulee, but the bread pudding wasn't good. It was contrived in a sheet pan, sliced up and dry.

Wine list was satisfactory with good choices and reasonable prices, but I wouldn't go back.
