Worst service I have ever had! The food is amazing but the service was outwardly hostile to us. Had a 8PM reservation, was seated at 8:30 and did not get the check till after 10am. That was after asking multiple times to order and in the end of the night for the check. When asking to split the bill was told if we wanted to do so we would have to wait till after the waiter cleared the entire restaurant. We were one of 2 tables left at that point. I have never felt so unwelcome at a restaurant.

One of our favorite spots in Telluride. Their driver will pick you up and drop you off, so very convenient even though they’re a little farther west in town.

Since it’s a small spot, noise level can vary depending on whether they have a boisterous group in the restaurant.

Staff is very friendly. They always have a nice special to make it a great value. We had a very nice salmon special. Sit at the bar and you’re likely to meet someone local.

This lovely little restaurant is managed in person by the owner who really cares! The 4 of us had 4 different excellent meals, the waitress was funny and very efficient... We will go back again soon. What a refreshing experience in this world filled with chains and mega restautants.

Even though West End Bistro is situated in the hotel lobby, it has a great atmosphere. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. We ordered the fried squid served with marinara for an appetizer - it was a crispy and delicious. The salmon was outstanding. We were all happy with our food and the service was great!

We have eaten at the West End Bistro on 3 other occasions and each time, including this time, the food was excellent. Additionallly, they have extended the restaurant which allows for more seating and it gives the restaurant a classier look and feel.

We read the reviews before we arrived and they were excellent. As soon as we opened the door to the Hotel, we were greeted by the bartender and welcomed in. The kitchen smelled great. Two of us ordered the filet and it was cooked to perfection. Our 3rd person ordered the surf and turf also cooked to his satisfaction. The waitress was wonderful and we got a shuttle ride back to the Gondola. I highly recommend your restaurant and the prices were very reasonable.

A hidden gem offering a great value....and they provide free transportation to and from the gondola plaza in town. This is a true bistro with a small seating area off the hotel lobby but don't let that dissuade you from eating here. The service and food are great and offer greater value than the restaurants in the center of town. And a secret: there are free cookies in the lobby should you skip the bistro's dessert offering! A must stop for all, especially for the budget conscious looking for a good meal.

We love this place. Small menu, but everything is done so well. Delicious ramen or salmon or pasta Bolognese. My son always lives the burger with truffle fries. Beet salad is super yummy. Definitely a hidden gem in Telluride. Gabriel provided excellent service. Thanks as always!

We were shocked there was not a crowd of people waiting to eat here like at other places in Telluride where we ate that did not come close to how good this restaurant was. The lobby of the hotel was pretty great too.

This was our first visit to The West End Bistro and it was a delightful surprise! Service was warm and friendly! The menu was eclectic but we all loved our choices. The best part was Tom (the driver) who drove us back to the Gondola since the roads were very slippery! We will definitely be back to visit next ski season!

Great food, we enjoyed our experience. But the staff needs to improve or maybe it was an off-night for them. The kitchen is literally within the dining area. One worker (not sure If a manager or server) was walking so fast and so rushed around and through the tables the entire time we were there it made me feel rushed and not at ease. I get they were busy bit she looked so out of control. Our server did not stop by once we were served to check if everything was prepared to our liking. I thought that was waiting 101. Training, training, training! But we will go back, food is excellent and priced well for Telluride.

The food and service were tremendous at this beautiful Rocky Mtn location in Telluride CO. The ambiance is unbeatable with with fireplace and mountain lodge appearance. Of course spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains. Our server, Evelyn was very friendly and knowledgable as well. When returning to CO. I will also consider staying at this hotel.

It's so hard to find a place to eat out where you can actually talk to the people at your table. There was a guitar act in the next room, but he was at a moderate sound level also. The food was great and the service good.

The food was decent, with good service, but delivered in very small, noisy room, 1/2 of which is a bar, and a big screen TV (sound off, thank god!) with close-captioning dominating the space while directly overhead a speaker pumped a really, really cheap choice of lousy music, all over the board, sort of a Worst of the Sixties / Seventies, Musak would have been better!

Very small, cozy restaurant in The Hotel Telluride. A surprisingly large menu with some interesting selections along with mainstream choices. The food is delicious, lots of choices, good wine list and other drink selections. We had a group of six and all came away very satisfied. Our server was friendly and attentive. Great evening!
