    The food was good and server outstanding. All in all it would have been an enjoyable evening if it hadn't been for the ridiculously long wait (35 minutes wait is why the low service and overall rating) even though we had reservations. Front of house did apologize but it seemed ingenuine. I feel personally insulted if and when this happens to me and I don't go back. I usually don't have to wait more than 10 - 15 minutes or so if I use Open Table. To add insult to injury my wife had minor foot surgery that morning. Maybe they're hot & busy now but over booking/poor planning will get ya in the end. I've seen 'em come and go. If this happens to you please let people know by a review.

    Every meal I've ever had at Barolo has been memorable! The quality of the food and the care in preparation and presentation are stellar. And the waitstaff is pleasant, efficient, and well informed. As a foodie and decent cook, I am always amazed at the imagination demonstrated by the chef. Even during restaurant week there is no slacking, no lowering of standards, no 'minceur' portions!

    Loved the food, service and atmosphere. Ate during restaurant week- portions seemed small but included 4 courses for $30. Everything was cooked perfectly, had the bream-very moist and tasty. Extensive wine list, great service. Beautiful interior. Nice touch to have valet parking included. Have traveled down 6th Ave for years and finally got to visit! Will definitely return.

    Ambiance is fun, service is impeccable, and most of the food was great. The starters were yummy, and side dishes were delicious, but entrees were so-so. My husband had fish, and I had pork, and both were lackluster. Overall we had a fine experience, and we will definitely return, but our hope will be for more flavorful entrees in addition to the sides.

    Barolo Grill, with its Northern Italian fare and its nationally recognized wine collection is as good as it gets--Denver or anywhere. Truly fine dining, but unpretentious, relaxed and friendly. This was our first visit, and although we rarely feel the need to leave Boulder for a good meal, we will be coming back here regularly. Every dish is interesting, tasty and artistically presented. The servers are attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know their food, and they know their wines. We felt more like guests than like customers.

    Barolo has been the go-to restaurant for our special occasions for years. This time, however, it seemed like the chef is trying to fix something that ain't broken. Powdered olive oil and basil gel are distractions. Italian food, in my experience and opinion, is not so complicated and, well, fancy-pants.

Although prices are a lot higher on wine pairing these days with tasting menu, we still get one pairing and don't get to endulge as often.

    Ate at Barolo Grill on 8/8/14.. All of the employees were great...friendly, attentive and energetic. The food that we ordered was all over the place. The bread sticks on the table to start are kind of strange..not particularly good and not in step with rest of menu. The Barolo Salad with goat cheese I ordered was great...the Barrumundi that I ordered was so fishy smelling everyone at the table remarked about it. It wasn't good, and when the server took it away I was surprised she didn't comment on how little of it I had eaten. My companion had the pork and she said it was very bland.

    After being seated at the window, I started with prosciutto con melon, followed by risotto ai peperoni rossi, with anatra (duck) for my main, finishing with a shot of galliano, and lampone con vaniglia e menta for desert. All beautifully prepared, presented, small dishes with the exception of the anatra which was a HUGE plate of food. Superb dining experience with an excellent wine menu. Not stuffy (restaurant seated a man in shorts and flip flops although most patrons wore dressy casual (not many ties or coats) for a hot summer eve).

    We returned to the Barolo Grill for the first time in a long time. We shouldn't stay away so long. Food and service outstanding and a great meal was had by all. We ended up getting the table closest to the maitre'd's stand which was a little awkward, although not enough to detract from food and service. Jimbo

    I brought a client to Barolo with his wife. They were so impressed with everything from the setting, to the service, to the wine list, even the Valet parking! They asked what was good on the menu and I said just start at the top and work your way down. It is all exceptional and the portions are appropriate to our eating habits. So you have earned yourself another very important guest. I guarantee you they will be back very soon with other clients in tow. We live in Congress Park and have enjoyed sharing Barolo with all of our business associates and political friends. Best in the west as far as Carolyn and I are concerned.

    Food was not just pasta. I had a grilled chicken dish which was very tasty while my friend had the tagliatelle pasta with shrimp. We split a salad and the crime brûlée.

    We always save this for very special occasions. This time terrific though we hadnt been in several yrs. One big complaint. For true oenophiles its tops but for the rest of us the wines are over the top expensive and daunting. We "settled" on a $75 bottle after seeing mostly $$$ for wines! Would like some more truly affordable wines. Very expensive tab overall as well.2 grt apps about $28 so before even main course we were over $100. A la carte for everything so beware. It was terrific evening but do expect to pay big for it. And it will be awesome. Someone has to pay for them to take all their employees to Italy for two weeks every year! But it shows in their server's knowledge and service and food which were were first rate. Dont miss!

The noise level was a bit much which at times made conversation difficult. It is an expensive place but the meal was definitely worth the price.

    Everything was wonderful. The service was excellent with just the right amount of attention. I am looking forward to going back to try the many other dishes that I debated over before deciding on the amazing flavor combinations from the buffalo, cheese and mint appetizer, the arugula salad, the porcini pasta pockets, the halibut and tri colored cauliflower to the hazelnut moose dessert. Each course was delightful.

    So our friends RAVED about Barolo Grill so we knew we had to try it out. We did the other night and frankly, while everything was obviously very high quality and extremely well presented, I just didn't like most of what they prepared. We opted for the 5 course prix menu at $65ea + the $45ea wine pairing. Ultimately, several were just kind of weird, a couple we "good" and the main course was quite good - but still not excellent if you ask me. And several of the wine pairings were very good, but most were meh. We ended up spending nearly $300 total for 2 people and even though again, the food was very high quality and obviously done with care and craft... I just didn't like most of it. Maybe my tasted are too regular. Staff is great.

    We've always had good experiences at Barolo grill in the past, but hadn't been there in a couple years and were disappointed by the food on this most recent visit. The appetizer was great (calamari), but everything was downhill from there. We ordered fish entrees, and they were beautifully presented, but did not have much flavor. I've had much better fish at chain restaurants. On a positive note, we had terrific, friendly service. However, given the price, we would choose Frasca every time and probably won't go back to Barolo Grill.
