Our family had a lovely evening at Allred's. The view is fantastic, the food is superb. We had our young kids with us and they loved it as well. If you want to top off your vacation this is the place to do it. We will definitely be back.

This is my second visit to Allred's and the first time that I was able to enjoy the majestic view. The food was excellent, the wine list is superb and the service is outstanding. I highly recommend the braised lamb chops - you will not be disappointed!

Stunning views and a well-executed dining experience combine for a memorable evening in Telluride. Make a reservation around sundown (or enjoy an aperitif in the bar) for the best view of the mountains, then enjoy the excellent food and well-trained service. I recommend the lobster bisque, elk sirloin, and sticky toffee pudding! (my bill for 2, without drinks or tip,... More

Love the early evening lighting (Alpenglow) from the dining room at Allreds. Perfect with a cocktail and post ski bliss. Service and food are world class.

Take the free gondola up to Allred's for a fantastic meal or sit in the bar and watch the sunset with some apps by the fireplace . The service is beyond good and the wine list will amaze .

This bar has the most amazing views of Telluride and the surrounding mountains. Would highly recommend it for a special drink. The margaritas are amazing (yes they are expensive) but you would expect this for the position on the mountain. Did not get to have a meal so cannot comment on the food.

Allred's is the spot for the view of the mountains. It sits atop of Telluride and Mountain Village at the top of the Gondola. For first time visitors, make sure you make a reservation early to be able to take advantage of the sunset. We didn't know this, so it's important to pay attention to when sundown occurs on the...

What an incredible restaurant. Make your reservations early (don't wait till the last minute) as the place gets busy on weekends. Impeccable service, and great food. View is awesome. Mario, the general manager, works very hard and goes around to meet most of the guests. We will be back!!
