A cozy, downstairs, well-appointed place, I'd say pretty professionally done all around. Staff were perfectly friendly and handled service very well. The food was good, but a bit surprisingly (given the overall polish of the place) wasn't unusually good. The layout provided a number of good spots for quiet conversations. Decor (mostly paintings) was oddly interesting. Honestly, to me the... More

We love capping off our time in Ouray with a wonderful meal at the Bon Ton. It is a bit upscale -- which makes it great for special occasions. Make sure you save room in your budget for a great dining experience!

This id definitely the place to eat in Ouray, a small town with limited culinary options. The basement atmosphere is slightly funky, but everything else--food, service, prices, attitude--seemed rock solid, so what's to complain about.

Everyone we spoke to recommended we try this place for dinner so we did. Made a reservation and showed up on time too. Were seated in a very crowded, dark, hot dining room and promptly forgotten about for a while. Finally someone showed up with a menu and went away. Then someone showed up with water and then went away.... More

Went here to celebrate our Anniversary. We were so pleased by the warm welcome and fabulous atmosphere but when the food started coming... Cooked perfectly, fine presentation, and tasted AMAZING. For what we got the slightly higher price was WELL worth it. We will return!

Loving good food I had researched where to eat during our 4 day visit to Ouray. We went to see the fall colors, which did not disappoint and do some off roading. The food at Bon Ton was delicious. The service was great. The house wine (Cab) was delicious. I had the Pork Tenderloin Piccata - the pork was tender... More

You need to make a reservation to get a seat quicker. We sat outside and we were lucky they had seating since we hadn't made reservations. Great food!!!! If looking for a wonderful desert get the Black Nasty it was delicious. Great staff!!!!
