  • Fantastic Date Night Out
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/20/2014
    I took my boyfriend here for a date night, and I couldn't have asked for anything better. Corridor 44 specialized in champagne, so we started with a flight. The waitress was very helpful recommending a flight best based on what liked in champagne. We started with the meat/cheese tray. It had a variety of meats/cheeses/fruits/nuts. I had the sea scallops and my boyfriend had the lamb. Both were outstanding, cooked to perfection - we cleaned our plates! The only negative I can say was it was a little loud for my liking, however that won't stop me from going back.

    Not big into champagne, you will be. I wouldn't splurge for dinner, but our group (and everyone we've talked to since visiting) loves the champagne menu. So, do that, maybe a happy hour appetizer, but skip the good albeit nothing special dinner menu.

    If you are looking for a scene that is more LA than rocky mountain casual, then this is the place for you. This place is swanky and the majority of the clientele are dressed accordingly. Great champagne list, a few beer options as well, great people watching! not a lot of seating in this narrow bar so it seems crowded even with 20 or so people

    service was great, she knew the wine list well and gave great dining suggestions. Staff was pleasant and the atmosphere is busy, crystal chandeliers, groove music and intimate. Best part was the food! Goat cheese croquets, Colorado Lamb lollipops, filet, Halibut and Scallops were all amazing dishes no one in our group of 4 was disappointed.

    We recently ate there on a Saturday night and were surprised to get a table. When we showed up, the place was empty and we were put in the back of the restaurant next to the bathroom for some reason. The service was fair and the food was okay but nothing special. My only complaint is that when my dinner was served, some of the items on the plate were lukewarm at best. Almost as if they pre-plated the part of it and slapped the chicken on at the end when it was done but by this time everything else on the plate had cooled down.

    The first time visiting Corridor 44 was a find among the gems of Larimer. It was quiet, inviting, warm and fit for fine wines, champgne, good conversation and a personal touch by the Managing Owner Brian J. Sifferman. Greeting everyone with his gracious smile, talking to all customers as if they have been in his company for years as a good friend. We frequent this establishment for the wonderful selection of grape vintages, being able to relax after a long day sharing conversation as if you were in your own home.

    I wanted this to be a special experience as went in a group of three for a friend's birthday dinner. The restaurant itself has a fun decor but everything feels a little smushed given that most of the tables are in a walkway to get to the rest of the restaurant. Luckily we got a booth which I was happy about. If we had gotten one of the tiny tables in the hallway it would have been much less enjoyable. The food was fine I got the filet as did another one of my friends and the other one got halibut. Honestly, for the price I wish we would have gone to one of the steakhouses nearby. I think the quality and overall taste of our meals would have been better for a similar price. The service was adequate and so that is why everything was just fine

    The ambience was my first impression. Almost every table seemed like a private dining experience. Hanging chandeliers, a sconce at every table, and white table cloths lent a very chic Parisian feel to the restaurant. The tapas were divine, each one very unique from the chef. Champagne list and specialty champagne cocktails were a delightful surprise to the evening. My filet mignon salad contained the best cut of meat I have consumed in my recent memory and service was excellent. Price was very reasonable, but would not have even been a disappointment at twice the cost. This will be a go to for me for many moons! Brilliantly done Corridor 44!!!

    I have been to Corridor 44 several times and love their champagne cocktails (especially the Napoleon). We were celebrating my last Master's class and the drinks and appetizers were great as normal. Our server was a bit aggressive and loud, but good. I wish their dinner menu had a few more options, but the scallops are my go to dish. Definitely a fun place to start happy hour and Wednesday ladies get to drink the champagne cocktails for $4!

    This place was a gem to find! We went to celebrate a birthday and the note I left through Open Table was honored. They gave a special drink and desert with a candle for the birthday girl. The place is gorgeous and service excellent. Had the Denver lamb lollipops and they were cooked as ordered. The drink options were great and they lived up to their name with the charities of champagnes. I would recommend the flights. Three different types of champagne based on region or flavor all served chilled and full size. They also have drinks from yesteryear like the manhattan and side car. Very sexy place with great food.

    What a chic little spot. Not many tables, but great menu. I only gave the food a 4 since all we had was the charcuterie and cheese plate. That was quite good. The flights of champagne are well chosen. The atmosphere is quite hip, though didn't feel unfriendly as hip places can sometimes. Would definitely go again.

    This restaurant/bar gem is located in a historic building in the heart of Larimer Square. It's small and thoughtfully decorated with amazing chandeliers and a champagne theme throughout. The bar and more lively part of Corridor 44 is when you walk through the front door and then a back area with smaller, more private booths. Finally in the back there's a private room if you need it. Fabulous drinks and food!

    Went there with my husband and had the escargot, shrimp skewers & heirloom tomato salad; all were fantastic. the flight to France champagne flight was a perfect compliment. the portions were small but tasty - didn't order anything off the large plate menu. I wish the bar area was bigger - it was very crowded in the doorway with nowhere to go. Great service, lively atmosphere - I can see that it would be a great girls' night place! décor is beautiful....

    A friend mentioned that he had been here in the past and was unimpressed, noting it was especially noisy and crowded, so we went in expecting to bail after a drink. Very pleasantly surprised. We were seated immediately, had a few drinks then ordered dinner. Great food (it is expensive but worth it) great drinks and a decent wine list. Great place for a special date night. Server was very quick and helpful with a couple questions and directed us to the champagne martinis. Super girly but very tasty.

    I really loved this restaurant. It is small and intimate. We were there on a Sunday night after Restaurant Week so it was pretty quiet. The staff was very attentive and timed the meal service perfectly. Our server was excellent and the bartender had time to talk with us about our champagne selection and he educated us on the finer points of champagne. It was a very nice experience. We tried a flight of champagne with our escargot. The escargot was perfect - not too much garlic, but definitely a very nice light lemon butter garlic sauce. I enjoyed the lamb lollipops with cherry sauce and my husband tried the filet. Everything was delicious. We will definitely return and recommend it to our friends.

    Last year my boyfriend and I had dinner here for restaurant week. It was amazing. Quiet, really cool vibe and ambiance, amazing food. Literally we talked about the food all year and were excited to go again this year and order the exact same items. When we went this year, we were sorely disappointed. It was loud, so crowded you had to push through people to get out the door, there was a loud drunken table right next to us, and the meal was dry and tasted like it had been sitting under a heat lamp. All that excitement and all that money!! And it was awful. Will not be going there again. Such a shame too because we truly did enjoy last year and the location is great as well, plus the variety of champagne cocktails made it unique.

    Went for restaurant week as first experience at Corridor 44. The server was very "business like". She did not explain or give descriptors of the drinks or food unless we inquired. Quickly left our table after taking orders and only returned at intervals to take orders for new drinks, never asked about our enjoyment or disappointment of our choices. Spoke with manager upon exiting to relay our discontent with our server--who knows what they will do to prevent other customers from such an experience...

    We tried Corridor 44 for restaurant week after our family saw the ballet. We were with our 2 kids, who loved going to the "fancy restaurant" and were very well behaved. The food was great, service was very nice and everything met (or exceeded) our expectations! I started with the Calamari- perfectly prepared with a light batter, and then I had the truffled chicken dish, which was delicious. My husband started w/ the beet salad, which he said was great, and then he had the lamp lollipops, which were delicious as well. We had the chocolate lava cake for dessert which was rich and moist and decadent. We will return!

This time was our valentines/7th anniversary. We got reservations and had a wonderful evening. The Lamb lollipops are amazing! Salmon, calamari and drinks were all fantastic.

    I've been to this bar before for drinks but never for dinner. The menu is small but the food is outstanding. We started with the shrimp skewers and I wished I had ordered double they were so good! For dinner we had the lamb lollipops, short rib sandwich, chicken, filet and salads and everyone's food was delicious and the portion was perfect for the price. Dining out at the hot spots in Denver this weekend, this was by far our favorite place. The bar scene gets crowded the later you stay, make reservations if you plan to eat. The crowd was nice (good people watching), the location is fun and the service was fantastic. The price for the food was very reasonable, we will definitely come back & I would absolutely recommend this to others!
