This restaurant marries excellent food and wine with a million dollar view, a rare combination. We enjoyed handcrafted mixology and snacks in the bar, and returned for a spectacular meal later that evening. The service was attentive, yet unobtrusive; the introductions from the sommelier a nice surprise, and the food was as stunning as the view. We enjoyed smoked salmon... More

Whether you stay in downtown Telluride or up in Mountain Village, Allred's is a short scenic gondola ride away. The bar scene is always lively and the restaurant is superbly run by Mario and Nita. I have enjoyed every meal here and if you get a window seat the view is spectacular.

I have been here several times with my family in the past year. We love to eat at Allred's on a special occasion! The food is exquisite and delicious! The Caesar salad is amazing. We even sat at a table next to Cloe Grace Moretz and her family on Christmas Eve! The staff here is impeccably attentive and the gondola... More

We solely went here to experience the views which are absolutely outstanding especially at sunset. We only stayed for a couple of drinks and did not sample the food. The service we experienced was excellent.

Exceptional food. Exceptional service. Extraordinary views and perfect venue for a special occasion. Be certain to check hours of operation. I believe it is only open for dinner during the early summer season. May possibly be open for lunch during ski season. Call ahead to be sure.

A very cozy après-ski atmosphere. Attentive staff & skilled bartenders use fresh herbs and nice cordials for some unique takes on proven cocktails. If you want to eat here, I suggest you reserve in advance of your trip, or at the very least the first day of you trip as they fill up fast. (I was not able to get... More

First, can I just say, if you can't spell sommeliers (ahem, "Katie c") you probably aren't qualified to review this place. Haha. Kidding. (Sort of.) We attended a small wedding reception at Allred's and it was exquisite. The staff was kind, attentive, professional, and put up with the wedding party's little Jones. The bartender was so-so with my order of... More
