Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "We had a wonderful and memorable anniversary dinner at Fruition! After being seated by the window as requested, we were presented with celebratory glasses of champagne. We both enjoyed asparagus salads as an appetizer as well as the vegetarian main courses that were fresh and delicious. At the end we both devoured incredible desserts! We can't wait to return!"

  • "We chose Fruition to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and they made it a special evening for us! The food is great (the potato-wrapped oysters are one of our favorites) and the service is anticipatory but not over-present, either. They've improved the time between courses as it was too long an evening in the past. Some of the tables are a bit cramped but no big deal, really. Overall, a wonderful experience and we will be back for our next special occasion (or sooner!)."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Don't let the somewhat difficult to read menu scare you! I have to admit I was a little intimidated when I looked at the menu. I lived down the street from Fruition for two years and my boyfriend and I decided to go for a special occasion. What a treat. Definitely one of the best meals I have had in Denver. The waiter even brought us complimentary champagne when he found out it was our anniversary. Everything was incredible! Would go over and over again."

  • "Fruition is an excellent little place. This was our 2nd time there and we will definitely go back again and again. I just wish it wasn't so far away from us. But, it was worth the trip. The food is excellent, fresh and different. We love how they cook everything. The service was also very good. The waitress was very knowledgeable about everything and answered all of our questions. They wanted to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and enjoying the meal - which we did! Great place."

  • "We have been told by many friends that we needed to try Fruition, and we are SO glad that we did! We enjoyed one of our best meals EVER. The decor is homely and comforting, while the food is unique and sure to please. HIGHLY recommend. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Fruition's food is outstanding. My only critique is that we were seated right in the entry way - made us feel in the way and was difficult to have a one-on-one conversation. Service was wonderful."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Entrees on 7 Jun Entrees on Jun 7 for dinner: Pike-fish&chips, duck confit, and Skate had way too much salt on them which detracted from the delicate taste of the fish and did not help the flavor of the duck. The first taste of each entree was salt. We did not send our entrees back because they were, nevertheless, edible."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This was our second visit to Fruition. We were not disappointed. The electic variety of dishes and layering of tastes in each dish was impressive. They gave us a champagne toast for our anniversary and put candles on our dessert. The service was outstanding! It is not inexpensive but well worth every penny."

  • "Spent our 21st anniversary here with some friends from out of state. Everything was right about this place from the service to every portion of our meal. The tastes that were created by the chef were a culinary delight. We all shared tastes of the appetizers, main courses and desserts with each other and we were completely enamored with each and every sampling. Even though I'm not a vegetarian, I ordered the vegetarian course out of curiosity and was not disappointed. In fact, I would order it the next time I visit, which will be soon! The roasted pork tenderloin melted in your mouth, and the duck was the best ever. Hats off to Fruition!!"
