  • "We went to Ale House at Amato's for my husband's birthday. Granted it was a Sunday night, but our group of 10 got seated right away even though I had originally made the reservation for 8. It took a little bit to get service and I think a different waiter took our table because we couldn't find the waiter we were supposed to have. Our "replacement waiter" was GREAT. He was very personable and knowledgeable about the menu and did separate checks for everyone which I'm sure was a pain. The food was very good and they have unique offerings. Everything came out quickly, correctly, and was delicious! We will definitely be back again in the future. *Note there is only free valet on Friday and Saturday but they forget to bring in the sign."

  • "5 people at the check-in podium when we arrived for our reservation. Not greeted for several minutes. Then told to sit wherever we like (we had a res for 8). Our party did not all arrive at the same time, so 1/2 of them were seated elsewhere in the restaurant. We wouldn't have figured that out, except for text messaging after 20 min of thinking they weren't there yet. Waiters confused about who was helping our table. Bar confused about how to make a HOT Toddy (sent over an ice-cold Toddy). Wow! Food was average at best. I wouldn't choose this place again."

  • "I had the fish n chips which, were a bit greasy. When I mentioned it to the server, he comped me a beer, which was acceptable recompense. The deep fried brownie was fantastic!"

  • "Ale House is one of my favorite local spots. The restaurant is vibrant and buzzing every night of the week. The views of Downtown are amazing. Everything on the the menu is good but I reccoment the pretzel rolls with beer cheese soup for dipping. I'd reccomend this spot to anyone who is new in town!"

  • "Went for after dinner drinks with my bf and another couple, ended up staying for 2-3 hours we had so much fun. We didn't eat, as we'd just eaten elsewhere, so that's the only reason I gave them 3 stars and not more. The food LOOKED great! I was told the view at Ale House and the drink menu were a "must see", and they were spot on."

  • "This is a great place to have a drink and enjoy the view, but don't go there for the food. It's not that it's awful, just very average bar food. The good news is that when all the excellent Highlands restaurants are booked you can probably get right in, and are likely to get a table by the window or on the patio. This is such a fantastic location it's disappointing that the food could not be something more special."

  • "We went on a Friday night - luckily we had reservations. The places was packed. Apparently there were a lot of large parties eating there that night, so the staff was constantly moving table and chairs from table to table. It got to crowded in our seating area that at one point we were blocked in my other tables, staff, and patrons. Amid the chaos though was excellent food! The pretzel roll appetizer was fantastic and our main meals were very flavorful. I'll be back, but maybe not on a Friday night."

  • "The draft beer selection was great. I especially liked the dark nitro drafts that included two porters. We enjoyed sitting on the roof top deck. Fish and chips were on the menu. But, the fish and chips were just average compared to other restaurants as were the other menu items we ordered."

  • "I tried this place with a group of 12 for a birthday party. The food was good, but I was expecting a few more meal choices on the menu. The ambience was good, but it was not as modern as I expected it to be. It does look like they have a great rooftop though. Service was ok, the waitress seemed a little confused at some points with who ordered what food/drinks. Also som of the beers were "sold out" I get that sometimes you're going to run out of things, but you're an Ale House so it should never be the beer and if you run out, you should take them off the menu. One of the parties in my group tried to order 2 types of beer and both types werent available. Some menus were marked w/ a sold out sticker but his was not...a bit disappointing"

  • "Love the outdoor rooftop bar. Stopped by for happy hour and had the caprese flatbread and parmesan fries. Nothing spectacular. The fries could've been cooked longer. Still sort of hard inside. Service was good and the ambience was great. Also have a great selection of beers."

  • "Brought my team of 9 in on a Monday and figured it would be dead, not the case which was awesome. We had a great dinner, everyone had a different beer and the food was delicious. What more could I ask for?"

  • "I was in Denver to get together with old friends and decided to go downtown. The place we tried to get into couldn't accomodate 6 of us at the last minute. We had an earlier drink at the Ale House and decided to go back for dinner. When I called, they found a way for us to get in without a reservation and put us in a room with lower noise so we could talk. Great food and service. Will definitely be back when in Denver."

  • "My family and I visited Ale House @ Amato's for the first time on Mother's Day. We all thoroughly enjoyed the server (don't recall his name) and definitely the view. The food was excellent as well. Our server was excellent, very courteous, knowledgeable on wine/beer and of course the menu. He was also very attentive to our needs but not overzealous. Which was greatly appreciated!! The end of our meal came and we never felt pressured to leave. Also greatly appreciated!!!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Great meal and Mothers' Day dining. Everything was very good, but we sure miss the Bison Meatloaf that used to be on the menu. The Turkey meatloaf doesn't compare. Wish they'd bring it back! Gret time, thanks!!"

  • "Our group of 10 returned to Ale House for the 2nd year in a row, and had a fabulous time! Everyone raved about the food, the large mimosas and bloody marys were also fantastic. Our server handled our group with a smile, and treated the 4 mothers to a chocolate strawberry at the end. We came early (10:30 am) and it was fairly quiet in the dining room, which we enjoyed. This is definitely a top spot for our group! "

  • "This was my 3rd time at Amato's and each was great! This time we sat in the bar, view of downtown skyline was great. The staff is enthusiastic and customer-centered, the food is very interesting and prepared very well, the service is attentive without being cloying, and the ambiance is very energetic. The beer selection is really good, this time I ordered a Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout and was not disappointed. The sweet potato fries are great, lobster bisque was good as usual, and you get a great choice of fare from light to rich. I'll be back."

  • "I took a large group of 10 people here for brunch and we sat on their outside patio on the second floor and had a fantastic view of the city. The food was great; although my french toast portion was too small for me, other people got burgers with eggs and breakfast BLTs that were more satisfying. The service was a bit slow to warm up, but we did get there right at 10am when they opened so we could get the seating that we wanted. Parking was a breeze that time of day. Everyone seemed to really enjoy it."

  • "The food was good, but our waiter was not. It took a long time for someone to come to our table and when he finally did it took another long time to get our beers. poor multi-tasking skills and he wasn't very friendly either. Another waitress even stopped by to ask "have you guys even been helped yet" He dropped off our beers but couldn't take our app order. It took a long time for the check to come too. Frustrating dining here as it took over an hour to get there with the traffic and we just wanted a couple beers to relax."

  • "Overall Amatos is great. It accommodated my group well and stayed pretty chill. But everything was just ok. They have gone the wrong way since opening and have become just another ok place to go. They food is more bland and thrown together, you can't get custom flights anymore, and there staff is just not that friendly. Overall it feels like they just go through the motions and will be just another ok place. They need to get back to the excitement of being a tap house and a place that serves a lot of good beers. They should also front some more beers that are not just theirs. There staff needs to do better recommending and even pairing some things up. Cheers to being just ok and a good place to seat more than 5 people."
