    Went to Barolo Grill my first time for a special birthday, from the moment I walked in until I left it was an amazing experience . My every need was met as well of those of my guest. My dining experiences have been quite broad including 8 years in Pennsylvania I would rate Barolo right up with some of my favorite dining experiences thanks so much

    We'd tried Barolo Grill during 5280....parts of the dinner were great...some not so much. We decided to give it another chance. Just our luck, some idiot brings their young child...who is allowed to run around and screech at the top of its little lungs...not very welcome when expecting an upscale dining experience. The downfall, again, was the entree. Mine was bland, lacking the brightness a bit of acid would have added. My husband had a pasta dish was undercooked. What was weird, is they served one of my little pastas first...I ate while my husband sat watching. My second little pasta arrived when my husbands meal did. Between the screaming kid, average food and weird service...we scratched this place off our list.

    We went on the recommendation of a friend. We were very pleased with both the appearance of the restaurant and the dining experience. The waiter was excellent and we found the food excellent as well. The menu offered a variety of items so that all found selections to their liking. The noise level was not bad and we were able to converse easily. All in all a good find for us.

    Anyone who is used to to high quality national (New York, San Francisco, LA) or Superb International restaurants has to experience Barolo. The wait staff is extremely educated in the culinary arts and travel to Italy once a year for courses in local cuisine, wines etc. The menu is exquisite but I prefer to go in and order the "Tasting Menu" in which the Chef sends out 7 courses with wine pairings picked just for you. I highly recommend this restaurant if you really want to celebrate a special occasion or impress a client. You can book a private function, as well.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 10/15/2014
    We were looking forward to a lovely evening at the Barolo having read a few excellent reviews. Wow were we ever disappointed. The evening began with our being seated near the kitchen door. Very noisy and distracting We began the meal with the mussels which were small, dry and tasted old. Next came the salads which were quite unpleasant; the chef(s) threw in everything they had in the fridge. Greatly overdone. The entres were very disappointing. My dining partners putanesca with tuna was mediocre at best and my homemade noodles with braised rabbit was inedible. The noodles were tasteless and the braised rabbit consisted of shredded meat which tasted like bad shredded chicken. That entre was removed from our bill. Service was good

    The food is absolutely amazing! We had the Menu Degustazione - the Chef’s Tasting Menu. If you choose this option, you cannot go wrong if you order the paired wines with it. Trite, but words cannot describe my dining experience. Wait staff was very attentive (but not too attentive, so I can check the "romantic" box). I think this may have been the best meal I have ever had. Eat here!!

    This was my wife's birthday, and she loves Barolo Grill (so do I). The service is always extremely attentive, and servers are well trained in all the details that makes service special. My wife had the duck (a Barolo specialty) and it was perfect as usual. I had the lamb and it was done just as it should be. A special night.

    We came here 5 1/2 years ago for our first date and have been coming regularly ever since. It just keeps getting better. We have never been disappointed in a meal and our meal this time was the best yet. One small disappointment was the after dinner truffle...new confectioner, not as decadent. But everything else was AMAZING!!!! And we eat out a lot :-)

    I took my boyfriend to dinner at Barolo Grill for his birthday. The food and service were not as good as in previous visits. Since the sommelier seemed to be nowhere in sight, we ordered a California Pinot Noir - I would've loved some guidance with the all the Italian reds on the menu. Bread arrived late and with no butter or olive oil. The homemade nociolla ice cream was tasteless and had to be sent back. The worst part of the evening was when a last-minute, surprise guest stopped by the large table next to us. The noise level went up considerably, making it hard to have a conversation. Our server apologized after the fact, however, it did have a negative impact on our experience.

    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!!

Suggestions about the food and wine were very good. It was nice to meet the owner and chat it up a bit to learn interesting details about some of the food and wines. They spend some extra time on wine selection and it shows in a very positive way. All good. Thanks!

    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.
