    The salad dressing for your usually wonderful Macho Salad was Not wonderful. It lacked sugar or whatever is sweet. There were very few dates in the salad. It was a real disappointment!

    I love the CC Grill and it's a complete neighborhood gem, but honestly, the menu needs updating! This menu has been around for so many years and it's just too limited (and boring)! CC Grill is NOT on my "go to" list for lunch or dinner for this reason-- it's great for happy hour and a nibble, but there are much better menu options around CC worth exploring! An out-of-town guest who used to live here chose it for a recent dinner-- now they understand why we were pushing for a different option!

    NiteOut
    Dined on 6/4/2014
    Our server acted like she was doing us a favor by waiting on us. Menu seemed somewhat limited since they were out of three items. And when asked about the soup of the day listed on the menu the answer was "we don't serve soup in the summer". Personally I feel like the place is so dark that I was leaving the beautiful summer day behind as I was seated at our interior table. Next time I would request outdoor seating. Might be a better experience on a cold winter day for lunch- and then they might even have soup!

    CCG is fine for a mid day lunch - but I would pass for dinner since there are so many other options in Denver to choose from. The menu is limited, the chef over seasons everything, and the staff seems unable to handle simple item modifications or omissions. Asked to keep dressing off my salad, argued me about the ingredients in the cornbread as it related to the ingredients in the dressing. Not sure why a server would argue a customer when all they asked is to leave the dressing off the salad. Have gone many times for lunch and received straight forward service with over seasoned food - after this dinner I will not be back - don't need over seasoned food served with a side of server attitude.

    The kale salad with chicken and the macho salad are delicious. Yes, the prices here are certainly a little high, but it's a nice spot with consistently good food, good service, and a great location. These may be the best salads in town, so they are worth the few dollars extra. I do also love the banana cream pie and the cornbread, although I do not often treat myself to those items.

    I have had some questionable service in the past few visits here, but things are ramping back up and the service was excellent this last time. We felt well taken care of. The food is always amazing. The chicken is the best not only in town but in several cities I have tried when looking for alternatives.

    Made the reservation for a birthday surprise with close friends and it was a wonderful atmosphere and had a great table in the back with Jason as our waiter. Had impeccable service along with wonderful food. I will always recommend this restaurant to any Denver visitor, someone looking for a great dining experience and will always go there for special occasions.

    Cherry Creek Grill is a long standing institution for good reason. Over the years they have fine tuned their menu, given consistently great service and the best outdoor patio in the area. So why I am bored with the place? Because the menu remains the same year after year. It's true if they were to remove the Macho Salad there would be a collective uproar so the salad would have to stay. Despite having the best Veggie Burger in all the land and a great Dip Duo, the menu needs a shake up. Even the the menu design hasn't changed in 17 years. How about a summer cocktail menu to enjoy on the patio? Doesn't have to be extensive just an option from the usual wine list. Still a good restaurant but it may be resting on its laurels too long.

    The food here is great. The cornbread to die for. The service was a little off. The waitress who took our drink orders got upset at my father who is hard of hearing and couldn't decided what he wanted. I ordered my prime rib medium rare and got medium plus. No, I didn't send it back. Why don't waiters write your order down any more? How hard would it be to print up the beers, especially when they are not the common brands?

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/19/2014
    We have frequented the Cherry Creek Grill for years because of the excellent food and excellent service. This visit was very disappointing. The food was good as usual however, the service was terrible. One of the main reasons we went to the Cherry Creek Grill was because we received very special attention from a single server. This time we had no less than five people serve our table for one thing or another. When we spend $100 for a meal, we do not want to feel like we're at an IHOP. We attribute this change to the change in ownership because this is the first time we have visited the Cherry Creek Grill since Hillstone took over. We won't be back.

    Found this restaurant close to our hotel upon arriving in Denver. It was a great spot to grab a late dinner and nice glass of wine. My traveling companion and I each had the Macho salad and shared a skillet cornbread. Both were excellent. We enjoyed the atmosphere - quite comfortable, but lively for 9:30 PM mid-week. Although efficient, the service was just passable.

    We had the Macho Salad again and it was outstanding as always, as was the skillet cornbread - a must! I had the grilled tri-tips for a main course, but the quality of the meat and overall flavor were just okay. My wife enjoyed her trout. Tres leches cake for dessert: also just okay.

    The service is outstanding, very attentive and friendly from the minute you walk into the restaurant until you leave. The food is very good, excellent flavors and freshness, with basic presentations. The rotisserie chicken and lamb have an outstanding taste from their wood fired ovens. Would highly recommend for any occassion, however, the menu has become a little $$$ so you may need to go when celebrating a special event or deserve a special treat.

    I love the cozy atmosphere of this restaurant. It was packed on Saturday night, but they seated us on time and were attentive to everything we needed. Had several appetizers - grilled artichoke is the best - cornbread and deviled eggs were good, too. Everyone loved their meal - filets were cooked perfectly and the salmon was excellent. I have been coming here for 12 years and it is consistently good in every category.

    Upscale food for a "grill." All of us enjoyed our entrees very much. Tons of wait staff around but somehow our own server we didn't see much, had to keep asking others for service. Nice atmosphere. Drinks way overpriced, no glass of wine under $10. Also, they don't serve bread; come on, you are spending some big bucks; no bread? Then the option is not regular bread but you have to buy cornbread. Then you have to ask for butter; cornbread w/o butter? Place would be great if they'd lose some attitude.

    We had a lovely time and the restaurant's signature rotisserie chicken was as good as ever! They had wonderful wine by the glass as well. The only damper was when another dining customer came over and said we were being loud because we were laughing over a funny scene from a book. The music could have been a little quieter so we could talk a little lower over it.
