    After eating here last spring, we were excited to try this again. We had an amazing experience last time and the service was top notch. This time - same waiter - but he clearly was having an off night. I am extremely gluten sensitive and asked for options on the appetizer menu. We were told that the spinach dip would work and that he could find some celery to add instead of their homemade bread. We received the wrong appetizer (albeit with celery) and had to send it back. When dinner arrived - mine was piled on top of a piece of bread (obviously the words gluten-free didn't resonate with our waiter). The food was delicious but we just didn't feel like it was a memorable meal because of the service. Won't be back.

    We always enjoy Deno's because it is one of the few local restaurants that has been around awhile which maintains the Winter Park ambiance! It is completely unpretentious. The food is always good (particularly the steaks), and it is comfortable for families or groups.

    Their food is consistently good. We have one complaint - they nickel & dime for small extras on the pizza that is supposed to have everything. Two bucks extra for jalapeños? Come on. Same when we've asked for basil. If the pizza is supposed to have 'everything', then they shouldn't charge extra for small things like basil or jalapeños. It's just annoying.

    I wanted a nice restaurant for a dinner to celebrate my birthday with my girlfriends while visiting winter park. Deno's did not disappoint! Doug and Matt gave great suggestions on food and drinks. They really made us feel like family and invited all the staff to toast to our ladies weekend (and the co avs playoff win!) with us. The food was amazing: salmon, mushroom ravioli with shrimp, shrimp Alfredo, and the filet. The drink pairings were also perfect. Thanks everyone for a wonderful dinner!!!

    This is one of my absolute favorite restaurants, regardless of the fact that it is in Winter Park. I live in Denver and always eat there verytime I am in Winter Park, which is about every weekend during the winter and at least a few times a month during the other months. The food quality is fabulous, always freshly made, and very delicious. I've had tried just about everything on the menu and am still surprised by the nightly specials they have. The wine selection is also quite large. The mozarella and ricotta appetizer is all made in house. The trout is the best I've ever had. The steaks are very, very good. I highly recommend this restaurant, even if you have to drive a bit from out of town. You won't be disappointed.

    Found the place on Open Table, checked out the reviews, but I still did not have a feel for what to expect. This place is just great. Few places offer the atmosphere that this place does. It's noisy, funky, and busy, but has a feeling of a neighborhood bistro gem. Clean place (considering most folks come in off the slopes or trails) and incredible service quality, all the while giving off a feeling of relaxation and down-home charm. But what makes it great is the incredible food...it's about as high-end as you can get without being uppity. (not that there is anything wrong with uppity...I love that stuff, too) If you are in Winter Park...there aren't too many other options, especially if kids are in tow.

Our waiter was on point and made everything fun. I liked the convenience of online reservations and was very happy that my request of a round table for seatiing was met.

    Deno's has an extensive menu, ranging from pizza and burgers through to an assortment of steaks. The restaurant has feels very cozy in winter. The bar scene is definitely lively and ski/mountain clothes seem to be perfectly acceptable. The wine list is particularly impressive and well priced! We frequently take large groups to Deno's and always experience excellent service.

    We went for their pizza and salad, which we very much like, after a great day of powder skiing. Since we were there during Happy Hour, we ventured into one of their discounted Greek menu items, to try that part of the menu. Lamb Sliders... very tasty and on a unique mini Ciabatta- style roll. Deno's offers a wide-ranging menu for many taste preferences. Service has always been sincere, friendly, and competent.

    We dined at Deno's the other night as a recommendation from a family member. The food was OK and the price tag was expensive (which we expected). The appetizer was some sort of sampler platter with tortilla pieces, olives, feta cheese and 3 kinds of dipping sauces. I would not recommend this appetizer as it was plain and not very good in general... I ordered a pizza thinking it would be small and it was bigger than I thought but thin crust so it wasn't hard to eat most of it. It was the pizza with 'everything but anchovies' and it wasn't very good either... My wife ordered the fettuccine alfredo and it cam with five shrimp and I think she liked it alright but for the price it wasn't that great either... menu needs updating.

    The noise level in this restaurant is so bad that one cannot even have a conversation with those at your table. We were trying to have a nice family birthday dinner and the noise level was the worst I think I had ever experienced. It was far beyond energetic, but in your survey, you do not give the choice of WAY TO NOISY. I will not go back to this place. The food was just ok.

    We have been to denos several times and had good experiences. Friday night, however, we had the worst seats in the house ( front of fireplace), it took way too long to get initially served, we had to ask for bread, had to request dessert menu, couldn't find someone to process bill...overall, we felt invisible. We will be back because of prior experiences, but Friday was a real dud...I would have expected better at Quiznos.
