Diner Reviews
  • "Cafe bar is a charming bistro with a lovely patio. The food is top notch and the ambience is excellent. They have a changing menu filled with great appetizers and special cocktails. I had their steak which was chopped and cooked to perfection surrounded by delicious veggies. My lady had the salmon also excellent. I would highly recommend Cafebar for a nice little romantic dinner or lunch."

  • "I used to live in Wash Park and went frequently after you opened. Since I moved to the Hale neighborhood, I've neglected cafebar a lot. I shouldn't the food is really solid and inventive. And you pour the best mimosas I've had in a while - not too dark (read: plenty of bubbly)! So bravo. Keep doing what you're doing and I will be back more often!"

  • "This place is a total gem. Great service and awesome food. The menu changes almost daily, so we can't tell you what to order. That said, almost everything we've ever had there has been spot-on. Great ingredients, great service, and great execution in the kitchen ale for a wonderful dining experience."

  • "Made reservations based on reviews from Westword and other sites. We arrived and there were no tables available as requested. No worries. Decided to wait at the bar. Waited for almost 30-min to order Sangria. Poorly made. My wife's tasted like a bad wine spritzer. Bartender really pushed to close out bill. The bad part was listening to all the staff hanging out by the bar complaining. Still no one offered to take order for appetizers or explain wait status. We chose to leave. Owner/Manager stopped us in the street and offered to ask party to leave. By that time it was to little to late. We had already paid our tab and were off to another recommended patio for dinner."

  • "Great Sunday brunch. The place was packed and very energetic (could be those bottomless mimosas). Hard to hear inside but totally fun and great food choices."

  • "We eat at Café/Bar about 3-4 times per month. We went to Brunch for first time on Sunday. After 1.5 hours of waiting on an order we were comped by the manager and went to Swing Thai across the street. I know this was a kitchen problem. And we will come again because the food is Very Good!!!!!!"

  • "Didn't get water until 15 minutes after we arrived, drinks 30 minutes after. Menu is very limited. We tried three of the main four courses, one of which was great. The other two had no flavor."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The reviews were good so we were very disappointed. I had requested a quiet table and we were seated right under a speaker by the bar... NOT quiet. The service (delivery of our food) was exceedingly slow. Our server was very nice and did keep refilling our coffee but didn't seem to recognize that we had been waiting a long time for our brunch and when it did arrive it was not hot and not especially good. Will not be going back or recommending it to anyone."

  • "The food and drinks at cafe bar are amazing. Really well thought out dishes and a changing menu every day with seasonal ingredients. However, the acoustics in the front room of the restaurant are pretty terrible and it is really hard to hear over everyone else in the room. Great restaurant for young and energetic people, but due to how loud it was in the restaurant, it is hard for older folks to comfortably dine here."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "They changed their food menu the day before we dined, so was disappointed that they took off some great staples they had, which were reflected on their website still. Sounds like they are going to a fresh rotating menu, so may be hard to reference the online menu unless they update it consistently. Food was still great as always!"

  • "Once again, a very memorable meal. Everyone in our party of 8 tried several menu items and were never disappointed. They still rave about the good food. If you want a great dining experience, this is the place to go."

  • "This place is great! I was able to make reservations for brunch, huge plus, and great food! Andrea was so great as was Yusef! We had the mushroom hash, french toast, burger, blt, and scallops. Everything delicious. Also the bottomless mimosas are a great deal lol."

  • "The food here was wonderful. We had made a reservation and when we entered there was nobody to greet us. We waited several minutes and nobody came. The people in the bar area could see us, but just seemed to ignore us, no acknowledgement that we were there or a friendly "somebody will be right with you". I went to the outdoor area to see if I could find someone, but they were all busy so we just seated ourselves. Mike, our waiter, realized what happened and apologized. From then on the service was excellent. Mike paid special attention to our 10 month old and made light conversation with us. The food was the real highlight of this place. Fresh, tasty, great selection. Would definitely go back for the food. Very relaxed atmosphere."

  • "I was nervous about previous reviews that were not complementary about the service. I found the service to be wonderful. Our waitress was attentive, provided good recommendations and checking in with out throughout our meal. The patio is very nice. It is carefully tucked on the side of the building that is not adjacent to a busy street, Alameda. "

  • "We have been here several times and have never had a bad meal, service etc. Just absolutely fabulous. Mike was our server last week. He knows the menu very well. This is the second time we've been in the restaurant in the past 4 weeks. Try the Tomato Salad. Delish! "

  • "Love this place, waiter remembers me and the wine I like. I feel special. Will make this a regular stop. But the lunch menu is weak..should add more salad with a choice of additional meat or seafood?..then I will take my lunch ladies and clients here. So far great outdoor dining. Not so much inside."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Great food could not overcome uncomfortably cramped seating and rare waiter appearances. Seated at a table overlapping the door to the patio (hello fire code?) with less than a foot between my chair and the table behind me. Private conversation impossible, noise level required shouting. A sorry choice for a special dinner. Waitress didn't ask for drink or dessert order, clearly interested only in turning tables. Food was great, but it took us 20 min. to order more because our waitress went missing."

  • "Everything we ate was amazing but it was literally the loudest restaurant I have ever been in. Use some of that money to insulate your restaurant cafebar!"

  • "My husband and I go to cafebar for brunch almost every weekend on special occasions like valentines day. Every time we go we get great service and great food. Hands down our favorite place for brunch and special occasions. Brittney is really the only server we know because she caters to us if we're in her section or not. "

  • "The food here is good, but I can find just-as-good food at many, many other spots. The service was dreadful, it was incredibly loud, and the ambience was frantic and stressful. "

  • "Second visit for lunch, both times food took over 45 minutes to receive. 1st visit the burger was greasy, tasted previously frozen. Food was brought slightly cold on second visit. Beautiful spot with lots of potential, hopefully restaurant will correct these problems so we'd like to return. "

  • "We had a large group of ladies come into town for a surprise bridal shower and our waitress handled our chatty, loud and excited group PERFECTLY. She was great, as was Cafebar. The food and drinks were delicious and we could not believe the prices! Incredibly fair. I will be sure to go back to Cafebar next time I am in Denver."
