Our family recently had a wonderful birthday dinner at La Marmotte in downtown Telluride, CO. We were in the area for a family reunion and inadvertently selected this place because the restaurant with which we were familiar was booked!! How fortunate, we had a marvelous time -- the ambience is cozy, the food and preparation was perfect, and the service was exceptional especially because the establishment was completely full. The wine cellar is complete (although pricey) and don't forget to save room for dessert -- the "D" chef is a master of innovation. Try to make your visit to La Marmotte by Gondola, the trip back up the mountain after a drink or two is spectacular, especially in the dark!

We were a party of 6 eating early in the evening. the last time I came was probably over 20 years ago. This time it was ok but not inexpensive for the somewhat haphazard service levels. The meat dishes were ho hum - not cooked very well (no tender) according to the table guests. A member of the party was a vegetarian but they did not have the main ingredient of the only entree dish on the menu (pasta) so ended up with what was in essence a plate of vegetables. Since it's Telluride the restaurant obviously caters to an affluent clientele but not really a fine dining experience that night.

I am sorry your experience at La Marmotte is not meet your expectations. Do you remember who your server was so I can discuss this with him/her. Our vegetarian dish is called Spaghetti Squash 'Pasta', but it, you're right, does not actually contain pasta. It is a play on words of the main ingredient of the dish, spaghetti squash. I am sorry your server did not properly explain that to you.

I am thankful for this feedback! I hope you try us again next time you are in Telluride.

Great dinner off season at the bar. Bar menu is well priced and the service was great. Cozy and nice, it was our perfect first night in Telluride. Will absolutely be back.

We went to dinner early on an unusually hot day, appreciating the cool dark romantic interior. The Steak Frites and Grilled chicken were great, and we appreciated the fresh warm bread. Low key service helped us relax and enjoy the good food.

We have eaten at La Marmotte several times and loved it! The atmosphere is great, the staff is helpful and friendly, and the food is fantastic. We went so far as to host our wedding reception here and it was the perfect spot. They were beyond accommodating and our guests are still raving about the food. This is a great and very "Telluride" place, making it a must when in town!
