Diner Reviews
  • "This is another case of the surroundings being better than the food. Very nice place, great decor and service but the food is just ok. The salad was excellent, the appetizer, ok and the main course was average. It was technically cooked correctly, the lamb was tender, the pasta was al dente, but the sauce was a bit bland and nothing about the dish stood out. We have been wanting to try this place for sometime and was disappointed. We keep going back and forth whether we want to give it a second chance."

  • "We loved Barolo so much last year when we went for our anniversary, that we decided to make it a tradition. We enjoyed it every bit as much the 2nd time around. Great food, great service, wonderful wine list."

  • "Food was bland, little taste. Beautiful presentation, but not any real taste treat. A place to be seen and show off!"

  • "This is our favorite place for dinner. The food is spectacular and the service is impeccable. Adrianne is top notch."

  • "Barolo is a Denver institution. The food is amazing and authentic. The flavors are amazing and the ingredients are locally derived, which drives the changing menu. If you're looking for amazing food, this is the place to go. The restaurant itself is attractive, but not especially beautiful. This is really a foodie place, not a place to be seen. The only downfall of this restaurant is the cost, which is relatively expensive. But it's certainly worth it for a special occasion."

  • "You look at the menu and you want to try everything without being too full - they can make this happen. Everything we tried was delicious and worth a pretty full belly when you leave."

  • "It was my wife's birthday and we were looking for a special place to celebrate. We came to Barolo on a recommendation and were not disappointed. The service, food and atmosphere were all outstanding. I had the chef's menu while my wife had the halibut. We we recommend either choice. We will plan a return visit in the near future."

  • "We stumbled onto Barolo grill looking for a place with good food on a Thursday night after our kids' lacrosse game. And what a wonderful surprise we found! We looked like quite a motley crew, but the wonderful staff at Barolo grill didn't even bat an eye. (We were not expecting it to be a white tablecloth place). Everything on the menu looked fantastic, so we decided to try the chef's tasting menu. The whole meal was absolutely delicious and our wait staff was knowledgeable, attentive and very friendly. They treated our children like they were special guests. We loved everything about our experience and would definitely highly recommend it to anyone. We will certainly be back. Go there. You won't regret it!"

  • "This used to be one of our favorite dining locations. However, the quality and service from the kitchen has changed. Perhaps, the restaurant was too busy on Saturday night and the kitchen could not deliver in a quality and timely manner. The wrong appetizer was delivered to start this experience. That result was a considerable wait. Following another lengthy delay, one of the entrees came dry without any of the browned butter sauce, the key ingredient. After requesting the sauce, it came a while later. The server understood the considerable delays and kindly asked to comp our dessert. When they finally came, the kitchen forgot the chocolate sauce on the profiteroles. Thus, another delay and insufficient chocolate provided."

  • "Great food with top notch service. This restaurant has never let me down."

  • "Barolo Grill serves good food with attentive service. However, the tasty sauces are rich in oil or butter and cream. I had sea bass, which was delicious, but a small portion of fish on top of a very large portion of farro, rich with cream and butter. My husband had beef loin steak, which was flavorful, but chewy. Prices are expensive."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Barolo is a gem of a restaurant. The menu has a nice variety. The combination of accompaniments and sauces made the halibut, sea bass, pasta and pork tenderloin scrumpsious. The wait staff are very knowledgable and receptive to your needs. And...this is in a neighborhood, easy to find."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Nice restaurant for folks who know food & wine well."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "For the price, I have to say that the food was fairly unremarkable. Many of the dishes were fairly bland and my steak was overcooked. The buffalo carpaccio was terrific and the duck entrée got high marks from my mother. The wine list prices are bordering on obnoxious (you shouldn't have to flip through page after page to find a bottle priced under $250...). If the bill was closer to $50/head, I'd give Barolo higher marks. When paying over $100/head, I expect to be blown away. The service was quite good, we just wish she was bringing us more exciting dishes."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Being from East Coast, this is a very different approach to Italian food. Limited pasta selection. The Souffle ai Funghi was an excellent appetizer. My son had the Fritto Misto and the calamari was rubbery. My wife had the Gnocchi con Ragu and it was tasteless. I had the Grilled Free Range Hen and it was over seasoned. The mushrooms on the side were overly salted. The deserts were ok, nothing to rave about."

  • "Been going to Barolo Grill for over 10 years....the food is always beyond wonderful and the service excellent. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Food was bland and overly imagined. Very little about the meal felt truly Italian. Service was slow and inconsistent, especially annoying because the restaurant was rather empty."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "The crème Brule is a must have. Best I've ever had."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Blair Taylor has forgotten more about how to run a fine restaurant than most owners will ever know. It was great 20 years ago, it is great today. Innovative menu, superb execution, remarkable wine list, gracious service. What more is there to ask? Like putting on a favorite pair of comfortable shoes. There are newer, more conceptually challenging places to eat in Denver, but when you are tired of culinary safaris, go to Barolo and remember what good food is all about."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Wonderful meal until the dessert. Creme Brûlée was a disappointment. Thin, overly sweet. Just not to compare with the rest of the meal"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "It's been a long time since I was at Barolo Grill. I don't know why it fell off my radar but I can assure you it is back on it. The food was excellent as was the service. I don't know what else to say except I will be back again......and soon."

  • "Outstanding service!!! Each course was prepared perfectly. Very large wine selection. Restaurant offer sampling sizes, about half-price, so you could taste alternative selections."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The food was excellent and the wine list had a wide variety of Italian favorites in all price ranges. One nice feature that I don't see in too many Italian places is the pasta could be portion from tasting, appetizer or entrée making it neat if you want small bites of many different pastas. We will be going back. "

  • "My wife and I went for our anniversary. We both had the tasting menu, which was wonderfully put together. She had it with wine, I did not (I had to drive). A different wine comes with each course, if you order it with wine and the pairings were perfect (I had a sip of each). Great service! They brought us several extras for our anniversary, on top of what was already a huge meal. Visually stunning and absolutely delicious. Probably can't go there every week, but for any occasion, it is worth every penny and then some!"

  • "The food, service, and ambiance make this one of our special occasion dining restaurants. Consistent over the years, we always know we will have a memorable dining experience. "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "We were seated by the door to the kitchen so there was a lot of wait staff passing by, which seemed odd because we were there early. There were only four or five other tables with people at them. Food was not as good as the last time we were in Denver, about two years ago. My husband's drink order was wrong and our waitress was not at all apologetic. I think for the prices and serving sizes, we could do better someplace else."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "My wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Barolo Grill on a recent Saturday night. We hadn't been for years and were thrilled that the ambiance, wine selection, service and food were as great as ever. This place is truly a classic in the Denver culinary world. I'd highly recommend for special occasions, date night, or just because."
