Diner Reviews
  • "Another birthday dinner at Fruition did not disappoint. There is never a low note when dining here."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I took my boyfriend here for dinner for his birthday. The restaurant custom made his menu to say Happy Birthday at the top. The food was delicious. We both got the duck. The risotto and fig sauce was savory and sweet and a great compliment to the perfectly cooked duck. To top it off the service was excellent. I highly recommend this quaint place, especially for a special occasion!"

  • "It took a while to reserve a table but Fruition is worth the wait. We went mid week. Had the pork tenderloin. Truly to die for. The accompaniments were so complimentary as well as tasty that we could gave savored them for a week 5 stars is not enough"

  • "Service amazing, the food so very creative. Appetizers were over the top - Octopus, Pasta Carbonara were 'wows'. If you enjoy good food that is presented as art, don't miss Fruition."

  • "The menu is seasonal and they use market fresh items in all their plates. The portions are perfect and not too small. Each bite was like the first and made me want to give high-fives to the people around me. The waitress was very accommodating and friendly as well. Lemon meringue for dessert...wow, seriously!"

  • "Based on the mainly positive reviews we decided to try Fruition while in Denver. We were not disappointed. All staff were very friendly making us feel welcome. The menu is not huge, but well thought out and in our opinion adequate. We are not big eaters so we found the portion sizes just right and of course you can always add desert! The presentation or 'plating up' of our meals was first class and the various textures and flavours were perfectly balanced. Everyone who enjoys good food should go to Fruition at least once in their culinary journey."

  • "I'm a total foodie/chef business owner, and I'm moving out of state next week. I asked via FB what were the top 3 restaurants I had to try before leaving. Fruition was the #1 suggestion. I totally feel it lived up to its reputation! We were celebrating a birthday and the restaurant even made sure the Birthday Girl got a menu with "Happy Birthday" on it; what a beautiful, thoughtful touch!!! Great atmosphere, Excellent service and the food was really fabulous; great plating, and presentation as well as taste! We got 4 different entrees (Duck, Walleye, Lamb, and Scallops), and with one tiny exception (my MR lamb was slightly overcooked), we couldn't decide which entree was our fave! The black cherry mille feuille was AMAZING!!!"

  • "Fruition made my anniversary a night to remember. The veggie options for my wife were well executed and not an afterthought. Can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I had the grazing vegetarian entree and the portion was ridiculously small. The starter for the vegetarian entree was basically a small house salad. The "main" course for the vegetarian entree was basically a larger house salad over some tomato sauce. Portions way too small for 25 bucks. And also, they skimp on the bread as if its some protected natural resource. Seriously just one slice at a time? The whole setup is indicative of how cheap the owners are. Not going back. And not recommending to any of my friends or colleagues at work."

  • "Fruition had a knowledgable staff , the food was excellent (the presentation was elegant) and the ambiance was perfect."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Very very disappointing dining experience. Food and service was poor compared to what it was in the past. Used to be excellent. Very sad. Will not return and would not recommend. Not worth the money or the time although the coffee and the wine is still good."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Lovely converted house with nice ambiance. Aaron (mgr) and server (Eric) were highly attentive to our questions, needs, and making sure we had an awesome experience! Special attention is paid to appearance, taste, and textures of the food. Great wine selection too. A definite must try!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014

  • "Great and innovated meals. Pork, duck, soup all outstanding. Staff we'll informed, wine selections excellent."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Great meal and service. We went for anniversary and they had personalized menu + champagne for us- very nice touch. The starters were really good- carbonara and soup. My pork entree was outstanding- tough to beat that dish. My wife's pike was good, not great- too much fried food. Service and ambience were great- definitely recommend if you haven't been."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Fruition Restaurant was a great pick for us as we celebrated our 1st wedding Anniversary. The food was delicious- starters, dinner, and dessert- all of it. SO good! We will definitely go back!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "I have eaten at Fruition about 8 times. The food is consistently outstandingly tasty and nicely portioned to satisfy without leaving one feeling too full to function."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "A special night for our anniversary turned out to be just that. Great food and service continue to make Fruition our go-to place for special occasions. The prices are surprisingly reasonable considering the quality of the food and complexity of the preparation."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "A recipe for deliciousness: Start with high quality ingredients, a staff that loves what they do, add incredible culinary skills from the kitchen, and this restaurant hits it out of the park. Amazing use of their homemade cheeses and farm to table ingredients. Fall in love with your food..."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Excellent food and gracious service, we would definitely return. The presentation is beautiful and everything is creative and delicious! My only wish was that they had more parking or provide valet, because their lot is insufficient and street parking is sparse. On our next trip, I'd consider taking a cab, that's how bad the parking supply is."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Fruition is my absolute favorite restaurant in Denver. Farm to table, amazing quality and a staff that is respected and displays the greatness of being involved in an incredible process that is about good food, good people and great experiences. This is a MUST visit restaurant."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Outstanding, as usual. Our favorite restaurant in Denver."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Fruition was overpriced yet I was willing to splurge based on reviews. What an expensive disappointment! The quality of the ingredients was poor. The dishes would have been more acceptable if the overall quality had been better. The wine was nothing special. I am a gourmet cook and was not impressed. The people that dined with me agreed that they will not be returning."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We had reservations and were seated promptly at our reservation time. The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. Our only complaint was that the food was very salty. Even my husband who usually adds salt to everything thought the food was salty. He had the duck and I had the scallops."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Again another wonderful dinner at Fruition. The grilled octopus starter was very tender and flavorful. The Scallops for the main course were tender and juicy. We always try to get here at least once on any trips to Denver."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We always enjoy eating at Fruition. In addition to their fantastic food, their wait staff is professional, yet welcoming. It's a bit pricey but totally worth it. We regularly choose Fruition for special occasions."

  • "Amazing seasonal preparations. Outstanding and innovative dishes. Wonderful service."

  • "Delicious food, great waiter, nice ambience. I do wish the tables weren't so close together though:("
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Overall, I thought the food quite good. There were a few glitches and very long wait between courses. Some of the glitches: In the Potato-Wrapped Oysters Rockefeller starter, potatoes way over done, leaving a slightly burnt taste, waiter said that is how the chef likes to do it - I suspect not; the Salmon Creek Farms Roasted Pork Tenderloin entree somewhat drier than expected (pattern with too much heat emerging?); Green Garlic Consommé not hot enough - oh well. Flavors wonderfully paired and often intense. Very nice selection of wines and beer."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "A very cute little spot with phenomenal service and a great menu. A bit pricey but worth a try."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Your establishment should be the flagship for what a fine dining restaurant should resemble. The cuisine, service, and all around energy was impeccable. You helped make my wife feel so special on her birthday. Thank you team members of Fruition. You are a cut above the rest and in your pursuit for flavor and your well seasoned staff, you have left your mark on us."

  • "Needed a romantic special destination and was more than blown away. The night was beyond perfect. The hostess and server knew how to make the night one to remember forever."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "This intimate place never disappoints. It is amazing what complex dishes come out of the tiny kitchen. The octopus appetizer is my new favorite."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We've been going to Fruition for many years and always good great meals. But, Saturday night may have been the best. Service the excellent, the expand beer and wine list was great, and the food was exceptional. The Walleye Pike fish and chips was unique and delicious."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This was our second visit to Fruition and it did not disappoint. Food was great, just as the first time. A note on wine list, you will not find a book-like-menu with an extensive wine list at Fruition, there is no need for one, instead, you will find a one page of wines that pair wonderfully with the menu! Deserts are another item worth mentioning, as they offer sweet and savory deserts. Everyone will find something on the menu that they will enjoy. The restaurant has a very comfortable noise level; one can hold a conversation at a normal voice volume. Service is friendly and attentive but not intrusive."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Not sure how we became so disappointed we were completely excited about trying this restaurant out for a special night. The food from the appetizer to the dessert was quite disappointing! I have to say it was bland to say the least, I love fish and was excited to hear that this was a seared light dish and I actually felt ill after eating it, I went home with an upset stomach. My husband is a steak guy and this was just too raw and the potatoes were average, It was not a tasteful experience were my senses were tantalized one bit. Another disappointing factor was that the hostess was very cold not welcoming not sure if that was the owner but I would not recommend this place to any of my friends"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Delightful appetizers, inventive main course, rather unusual dessert. The menu always has some surprises. My out-of-town friends gave high praise."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Had a lovely evening at Fruition! It came highly recommended, and my expectations were exceeded! Wonderful well-thought out menu, great atmosphere, and reasonable prices! Of course the farm to table concept, using local ingredients makes this place even more amazing. Will visit again and again!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The food was outstanding and our server Cody was attentive and very knowledgable. They inquired as to whether or not it was a special occasion and had happy 3rd anniversary printed on our menus! Could not have asked for more."
