    Wasn't sure what to call this. Very nice, expensive, great service, Euro-menu. Thought I'd step out of my comfort zone and go for fish as per the waiter's recommendation. The halibut was dry......clever, but dry. I was eying my neighbors rich looking pasta bolognese. Fellow diners said the rabbit was amazing and I believe them. Dessert was amazing.

    Have been going to Barolo for years and last Saturday Night was the worst experience we have had. Service was not up to Barolo's standard and the food was mediocre at best. I have been ordering the duck for the past 10+ years and it was dry and not nearly as delicious as usual. There were other issues that will be covered in a private message. Hoping this was just an off night as Barolo has always been one of our favorites

    The Barolo Grill has been one of the top restaurants in Denver since I moved here in 1990, but I had never been. Finally, for my birthday, my husband and I made the trek into town and we were not disappointed! Every bite of every dish was perfection. From the Italian hand-painted plates on the table, to the perfectly attentive server, to the casual elegant atmosphere, this is a "true to it's Italian roots" restaurant. Highly recommend it.

    Food and wine was outstanding as always at Barolo. However, my wife and I are Oenophiles (wine connoisseurs) and we had ordered two different bottles of wine for our group. We were very disturbed that when our server thought it was ok to stick his nose about 1/2 inch away from the bottle and the decanter lip. The server did this twice. We find this practice to be extremely distasteful and unhealthy. There is nothing wrong in enjoying the wine's bouquet if it is in your glass!!

    Everything about this business dinner was phenomenal! This is the kind of place that you can tell is going to be great just walking in the door. Just the right size, the food was fantastic from appetizers through the rest of the meal. You need to try the Squash Blossoms as an appetizer. Everyone in the party raved about their appetizers. Everything from lamb loin to halibut. The Willamette Pinot Gris was also fantastic.

    I was so excited to see the Barolo Duck with kalamata olives back on the menu, so I had to have it. It's not the same recipe :-( It has a bit of a citrus flavor added. It was okay, but please bring back the original version! Food is always great!!!

    Food was very good. Service not so much. Servers should be trained not to reach accross tables to put rolls on dishes or to reach accross someone to put another diner's plate on the table. Additionally, after a server takes a drink order, a diner should not have to wait close to 15 minutes to get the drink nor to have bread served or an order taken. Granted it was busy when we were there, but that should be expected at a good restaurant on a Friday night.

    We had an amazing time here! The service was spotty and slow at first but after they realized our whole party arrived it was beyond wonderful. Our server Chris was great at understanding what we were looking for in a wine, and delivering a spectacular bottle. Same with the dessert. He was knowledgeable of everything they have to offer and provided us with exceptional service, nay, hospitality. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great place/atmosphere to celebrate or for just a good time. I'll definitely be back!!!

    We were in Denver for our anniversary and chose Barolo Grill for the menu items and reviews. When we walked in my husband commented that the word "Grill" did not do it justice! It was very classy and romantic! We had the pre-fixe menu since it was Restaurant Week. The Risotto, pan seared sea bream, and grilled Colorado flatiron beef were excellent as was everything else we tried. There was not one item offered that we did not enjoy! Even the wine pairing for each course was perfect! Our server explained each menu item as it was presented and even told us a little history of the wine pairings! I would highly recommend Barolo Grill to anyone visiting Denver. It was the highlight of our stay there!

    Barolo did it again; an amazing meal, beautiful wine pairings with our 4 courses, and great service. The highlights for us are twofold: a relaxing 2.5 hour meal, and acoustic tiles that made it easy to hear each other. This translates to allowing us to relax into our chairs, and engage in meaningful conversations. Thank You!

    We chose to eat at Barolo Grill during Denver Restaurant Week, and we are so glad we did! We were seated in a side room, so ambience was lovely and quiet. The waiter was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu and wines, and each of the four courses was excellent! We will definitely return to Barolo Grill.

    Except for the very friendly hostess, the service was a bit pompous. Food portions were small but good except for the pork entrée which was terrible. The $23 wine pairings were 2 sips each course and didn't total 1/2 glass as advertised. It would have been more satisfying to order 2 glasses of wine period. One server took my empty bread plate without asking if I wanted another roll. The restaurant has a sterling reputation, but was very disappointing for us.

    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.

    I love going to Barolo Grill, but this time saddened me. My return to Barolo grill for this years Restaurant Week was déjà voi. They served the same items during this years earlier Restaurant Week. No wonder you couldn't find their menu on the Restaurant Week. Quality has fallen off at the Barolo Grill. So sad.

    My boyfriend is a foodie and ever since I met him, finding restaurants that can match what he can cook at home is difficult. There are only a handful that he is willing to go to. I decided to take him to Barolo (since I, myself, can't cook) and expectations were high. Fortunately, just about everything met our high expectations. The mushroom risotto (lemongrass was a nice touch), sea bream, and prosciutto were the highlights. The staff was patient as we tried to find the right red and answered all of our questions. They gave us a lovely table right by the fireplace which made for great ambiance.

    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.
