  • "The steaks were AMAZING. I had the NY and my wife had the filet- both prepared perfectly and had incredible flavor. Service was great and the appetizers were delicious."

  • "We really enjoyed the dining experience; the AC however wasn't quite as enjoyable But regardless, my food was delicious; I had the chicken dish which was presented nicely in a roasting pot and had great flavor and was very tender... my dining partner had the special - lamb ribs - which he said were very very very fatty... too fatty for him and he likes fatty things, so they must have been quite extreme... they did look like blubber on a bone, but perhaps this is what lamb ribs are supposed to look like? I can't speak for him, but my chicken was delicious. Our waitress was really really nice too and they brought out two amusements which were quite tasty - shaved watermelon and fried potatoes - separate of course. We will try again"

  • "This was our 2nd visit. The pork special was melt in your mouth. The green salad had the most delicate slices of fried green tomatoes that made this salad one of the best I've ever had. The foie gras had the creamy texture one expects for this indulgence. The saffron panna cotta was the perfect ending."

  • "Wanted to surprise my girlfriend with a nice night out after having to cancel plans earlier in the week. Colt and Gray more than made up for my lack of follow through. Great simple menu!! Be sure to ask what the day to day changes are, we were told about their pork special (pork belly) and it was delicious! Will definitely be going back in the future."

  • "The food at Colt and Gray was UNREAL! I would 100% go back for the food. I do have to say, however, if you are under 25 you be ignored by your server for the older guests. This sort of thing bothers me so much because I am paying just as much as everyone else for delicious food and wine. The lamb was the best I have ever had!"

  • "We had a pleasant evening with tasty food. The meal was delicious and the busser did a great job of upholding our service expectations at a restaurant like this."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "So the food was very unique, tasted wonderful, and we really did fill up, but for the price and amount of food given, it wasn't worth it. The reason we got full was the meat and cheese plate in the beginning. The salad afterwards was tiny - hardly any asparagus in the "asparagus salad". There were "small plates," but we went with the entrees. There was plenty of meat on the meat dish, but I counted maybe 6 pasta pieces in the pasta dish. Sure would hate to see how small the small plates were! Gotta say the desserts were incredible, but by the time the final bill comes, ya gotta wonder if it was all worth it... Special occasion worthy, and you've got to try once I guess, but we probably won't be back."

  • "I went in on a weeknight. It was not too full. The staff was very accommodating on my late reservation. The hostess was some what unenthusiastic. She was tired or maybe just bored. We were shown to a booth that was in a corner and was a wooden bench. This was the biggest down fall of the whole evening. I could see tables that had very comfy looking chairs. The bench did not even have a cushion. I did not ask to move but throughout the dinner I became more and more uncomfortable in this seat. Our waiter took his time getting to us. My son ordered a drink and it had too strong of a ginger flavor, he didn't end up drinking it. Our orders were supposed to be coursed but came out at the same time. My lamb was undercooked. I expected more."

  • "Thanks Colt and Grey for an excellent night. Our server Adam was fun and provided great insight on the menu! The food ...oh the food ..was so unbelievably good. The Marrow was divine and unctuous. The fois gras with the trio of jams superb. The charcuterie- best I've had. It was a perfect night of adventure for our mouths!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "3 friends and I went on a Saturday early evening and found Colt & Gray to be a very nice surprise. We had the Charcuterie 5 selection and enjoyed each item very much. Each of the three meat selections were fresh and very flavorful and the cheese was outstanding. We also had the fioe gras (excellent) and the snail risotto which was about the best risotto we have ever tried. For entrees, we split the rabbit and the veggie dish and both were done to near perfection. Overall, one of the better dinning experiences I have had in Denver."

  • "Get the Ndjua and the brie. They have some of the best meats and cheeses in the state. Also, their french press coffee is incomparable. Just wonderful :)"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Colt & Gray is a great place to dine. I thought the menu was somewhat limited, but still several choices with a variety of meats/fish. The Colorado lamb was very tasty, but on the tough side. The waiter was helpful with a wine selection although he had to seek additional guidance. Our group selected only two entrees so we did not sample much from the menu. A very good place and the prices are reasonable."

  • "I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and I put that in the reservation information. We ended up at a tiny, cramped table in the middle of a walking area between the other seats and the bar. I felt like we were on display and it took away the romantic feeling. The food was good, but it could have been better - primarily the things that accompanied the meat. Clearly there is a great deal of attention paid to the meat, but what about the other elements that make a plate an actual meal? Other than that, the drinks were good and the service was good. We might return in the future. "

  • "Went here for dinner on a Sunday night. The restaurant itself is gorgeous - lovely brick work, beautiful chairs and banquettes, big tables, a fireplace, huge mirrors on the walls and an impressive wine rack. The dining room had just a few tables so it was quiet and spacious. The food was amazing - we started with charcuterie and cheese, tried several appetizers and shared two entrees for four people because at that point we were stuffed. The crowning point was the cheesecake with salted caramel - served in an adorable mason jar, it could have been gimmicky but in fact was divine (we didn't eat dessert again for a week because we didn't think anything else could compare). Service could have been more attentive, but can't have everything."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Pros: Food was delicious. Ambiance was modern, chic, yet comfortable. Cons: Portions were small and overpriced for quantity. Though the restaurant was far from crowded, it seemed that our server forgot our presence at times; perhaps this was because more parties were seated outdoors, or that our corner booth was a tad secluded. Also, no butter/jam was served for the small piece of toast accompanying the brunch, nor did our server know the teas the restaurant served. "

  • "I gave it a poor rating overall. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary with an early 5.15 dinner. The restuarant was empty. The host sat one couple in a private and quiet room and then sat us right next to them. It was absurd. Us and a couple of strangers essentially sharing a table. And I could probably understand if the restuarant was booked up but nobody else was seated in that room for the first 45min. Super awkward...you couldn't say a word without the other couple hearing you. If you are wondering why I didn't request a different table, believe me I wanted to. But how do you do that when you have already been seated? You had to be there...it was a hopeless situation. Other than that, our server and food was pretty good"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The food...wow...a pate dish three ways that could almost have been a dessert....lamb tartare that was more addictive than crack....the charcuterie had three good items for us, all pork based, and spendid pork rib. You can treat this spot like a tapas place, which is fantastic for a date night. A lively bar, but since it was a "school night" i left that alone and just had a damn good beer. Our server, Marnie, had the right blend of helpful, friendly, and attentive......a quiet Tueday in a scenic, simple bar. Worth it for special occasions, or for when your inner foodie demands attention. The only negative is that parking sucks , so hit the grocery store for $5.00, or the valet. But the food is worth it. Creative, nose to tail menu..yum"

  • "*Seated in an over-lit overflow dining room *Service began strong, but became non-existent as soon as first course was delivered *Had to ask for water refills every time *Server refilled our wine glasses only once (we ordered 2 bottles) *Main course was the orecchiette which was still hard, egg white was snotty *The 4 of us shared all courses (there were 4) & server never brought clean plates or cutlery - we were eating off of our tiny bread plates *Server never asked us at each course how everything was. We had to call server over half way through main course to let him know about underdone pasta and snotty egg *Worse, when a 10 top was seated, we lost almost all service attention *WAY too expensive for Denny's service *Won't be back"

  • "I'd heard about Colt & Gray from a co-worker and had been trying to get a reservation on a Saturday for weeks. My effort finally paid off and it did not disappoint! We made the experience e a three course affair starting with a charcuterie platter and ending with an entre. We skipped desert in favor of a 20yr old Pappy van Winkle bourbon. (Even more rare than a Saturday reservation! All exceeded expectations!"

  • "Wow. I've been in Denver five years and finally made it to Colt and Gray. I will definitely be back often. I pretty much never write reviews unless I have something really nice to say. I am fairly particular when it comes to dining out and I will say that Colt and Gray knocked it out of the park. If you're a meat lover and want a top-notch meal, look no further. And when you're done, top it off with the sticky toffee pudding. "

  • "I was pleased from being seated at our corner table. The ambiance was a quiet evening. The service was excellent both at our table and others that were there that evening. The food was fantastic. Not knowing what to expect it more that fulfilled our desires. The Potted Salted Caramel Cheesecake was decadent. Totally an evening of joy."

  • "In the past I have had great food at Colt n Gray which is why I went back. The cocktails were great but the two main course meals we ordered were not that great. We got beef and lamb both medium rare, we both had to saw through them to eat them. At this price point I have never had to send anything back, I would feel bad sending both meals back. Not sure I would go back for dinner in the future but cocktails for sure. "

  • "I really enjoyed this restaurant. The menu was not overwhelming, plenty of choices for all types of tastes, and the drink menu was pretty freaking funny. Apparently it changes frequently. I looked online at their menu, and was looking forward to the Anchorman: Legend of Ron Burgundy drink menu. Nonetheless the Spaceball menu was awesome. Plenty of typos though Food was delish. You can create your own Chacouterie (sorry about that spelling) board. No choice is a bad one. Menu was created specifically to set your mouth to water. Our group had the Snail Risotto, the special which was pork shoulder, and curried chicken. The chicken just needed a bit more curry. For dessert the salted caramel cheesecake was a huge hit at the table. Perfect."

  • "I took my fiancé to colt and gray for her birthday last week. We had a few cocktails at st. Elize the speakeasy downstairs. Excellent cocktails down there. Nice ambience. At colt and gray we had a nice meal, just not up to snuff with the price. When I spend $200 on a meal I expect perfection. I had the rabbit and she had the blue cheese gnocchi. Both ok but nothing special. Lots of salt, minimal creativity. The best part of the meal was the leek and pea soup. That was superb. The space however is gorgeous. Really nice ambience all around. I would return for cocktails and soup alone. "

  • "We scheduled this dinner with another couple who we've not seen for over two years. The location was in the up-wardly energetic Platte Ave neighborhood slightly south of the Denver Beer Company with many other ecletic shops and restaurant/bars. Our reservations were at 5:15 and we were seated immediately. The table was next to a fireplace that cast a great ambiance without emitting excessive heat. The server - Marty was outstanding in taking orders, following up with the table and explaining the entrees. This is not your father's American style restaurant. It had a wide slection of appetizers and entrees that were reasonably priced entrees (between $25-$40). The drinks and wide list was varied. Food was outstanding!"

  • "Splendid restaurant. The decor and lighting sets the mood for a great experience right away. The servers were knowledgeable and courteous and very professional. The food was top shelf from first bite to last. The oysters were on par with what I can get in Seattle. The asparagus salad was a tasty dream salad, light and fresh and some thoughtfully arranged each flavor enunicated boldly. The mains were generously portioned and rich in flavor. I found myself stuffed solid halfway through my lamb but what with the fried english peas I kept going until I couldn't lift another forkful. We had a nice Rioja to go with the meal and for dessert a bread pudding with Bourdon ice cream. Will certainly eat here again, whenever back in Denver."

  • "Overall I loved this place. I would definitely like to go back. I got the lamb, and while not the best I have ever had, still great. I got the olive oil thyme cake and I could die a happy person after eating that. My boyfriend did not make a great choice for his main dish. He got the pesto pasta. It was terrible. I'm surprised he finished it. I let him have a lot of mine to make up for it. For dessert he had the chocolate cake. It was very smooth. I would recommend this place for a very nice date. Try the lamb head cheese. Sounds awful, but it was really good."
