My husband eat here every summer. The food is excellent. My husband had the salmon and I had the flat iron steak...both were delicious. We have been twice this summer and might try to go again.

Chef Eamonn is here because he loves living in a tiny little out of the way mining town and his cuisine competes with any in any city. There was an early bird special ($15.00) but we aren't early birds. Very nice bottle of Spanish Godello wine ($40.00 and the most expensive white in the house), delicious corn and mixed vegetable...

The Argentine Grill has the best food in the Telluride area. The food is always cooked just right. We have enjoyed eating there for both dinner and brunch. It is well worth the 45 minute drive from Telluride. Eamonn's food is always great.

My husband and I live in Telluride and frequently make the drive to Rico for Eamonn's food. Often times when we are traveling and eating out we find ourselves saying the food is not as good as Eamonn's. He makes the best steak we have ever had.

No cloth tablecloths here. A limited wine selection and food menu might cause one to not stop here. We found steak and salmon prepared to our liking and servers who took good care of us. Outside seating is available and cozy inside tables have a European Gasthaus atmosphere. Somewhat overpriced, but as the only show in town, it passed the... More

A high class treasure in a tiny mountain town. Chef Eamonn OHara is the best! Great food and service.

We ate here recently for our 19th anniversary as we happened to be renting a cabin in Rico. The reviews are all spot on, this chef is amazing! We had the corn bisque as recommended and I have been dying for another bowl of it ever since. My husband had the organic half-chicken and reported it was among the top... More

Our food was FABULOUS. The service was attentive. The only problem was the lack of bar ware - we ordered a bottle of white for the appetizers and a bottle of red for the entrees and had to "volunteer" to reuse our glasses. We had mussels in chorizo broth, tomato/arugula/goat cheese salad, steak, chocolate cake. All were wonderful but I... More

The food at the Argentine grill is delightful! I had the corn chowder and should have only ordered a salad after because it was fabulous and filling!i also tried my sister in laws beet gazpacho and it was incredible bursting with flavor! My steak was cooked to order, the mashed potatoes were as good as my own!

Ate here for our 1st anniversary dinner and tonight for our 10th anniversary. Food was outstanding. We had steak and salmon, both of which was wonderful. The steak was rarer than I normally like, but I enjoyed it anyway due to the great flavor. Cocktail and wine was also excellent. Truly love the bisque and gaspacho. The atmosphere is rustic... More
