The Bon Ton is one of our favorite restaurants in Ouray, Colorado. The historic location and intimate atmosphere gives it an old western charm. The food is excellent from a very diverse menu. The owners and staff have always provided first class treatment.

We have been here several times and the food is always exceptional. The drinks and food are pretty pricey for a small town, but you have to understand that they are trying to get those tourist dollars. Make reservations to insure that you get a table. This place can get busy. It is worth it though.

Thanks for another amazing dinner! We always miss the escargot appetizer in the winter but the scallop pot pie is delicious in its place. Bread is warm and perfectly crusty, salad is crispy with great balsamic. My husband said the clam chowder was really good and his rib eye special was done to perfection. Bread pudding for dessert and a... More

My friends and I were pleasantly surprised by the Bon Ton. We spent the day exploring trails around the Ouray Telluride area and we pleased to end the day here. We enjoyed warm cozy atmosphere after freezing on the mountains. The menu had many standard Italian dishes and a nice variety of specialties. I had the Canneloni which was excellent.... More

We actually went here on 2 nights. The first time, the service was a little lacking. It took a while for us to be noticed, and when the pasta came, it came with the wrong sauce. We decided to give it a second try on a night when it was just too cold to walk any further (its in the... More

This is a wonderful little place in Ouray. We ate there the night before New Years and had a hard time choosing from several dishes I wanted to try. I had Chicken Marsala that was excellent. My husband had a pork dish that was also excellent. New Years Eve was festive with balloons, hats party noise makers etc. They did... More

Not only is Ouray, CO a great mountain town to visit with its amazing hot springs, but the Italian food at the Bon Ton is always a stop for us. By far the classiest restaurant in town and the service is outstanding. Their bartender knows what he is doing as far as mixed drinks go, and they have a great... More

We walked from our hotel and sat at the bar. Food and service were both exceptional. Chris, the bartender was so nice and personable. He had his 4 day old son there so we couldn't resist the photo op!

It was within walking distance of our hotel. I knew few places would be open, so I booked reservations in advance. What a wonderful restaurant. Hubby enjoyed Cabernet with his Garlice Tuscan Chicken over Fettuccine. I enjoyed a Blood Orange Cosmopolitan and one of their specials - Bison Stuffed Ravioli with Bolognese Sauce. Spectacular! We also started with a bowl... More
