    We were able to eat outside on the balcony and the weather was great. Service was good, although they were either busy or stretched thin as our server took a while several times to return. Overall, the food was tasty and we noticed the crowd was younger, bringing a high level of energy to the restaurant. We would eat here again.

    We love ignite and go there as frequently as we can (especially for the man-candy). Unfortunately, they didn't (on this occasion) seem to care in the slightest that we had a reservation. What's the point of making a reservation for a specific time if you don't get seated for another 45 minutes?

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    Ignite switched over to being a burger-themed restaurant recently and I'm just not a fan. I like options. For brunch in particular, the menu beyond their (fairly uninspiring) burger selections is quite small. It was nice to be able to make a last minute brunch reservation on a busy day downtown, and the front and rooftop patios provide ample outdoor dining space. I wouldn't NOT go back but I won't make a point to either.

    We went for brunch last Sunday. The truffle fries were very good. The French toast was boring and anything I could make at home. The chicken with mac n cheese was really enjoyed. I had the short rib hash which was tasty. The service was slow for a place that was not that busy.

    Had dinner with five folks on Saturday night. We enjoyed our food, "ManCandy" is just ridiculous. Service timing was just off, nice personnel . But 15-20 minutes for a round of drinks, Dinners coming out a different times. just not a smooth night. Beautiful space, if they get the service cadence down, will be a long time player in Downtown Denver.

    Went to Ignite for the 1st time on Mother's Day, had a FANTASTIC experience. Two words: Man. Candy. Husband loved the Manmosa, kids loved the deviled eggs, I was never left with an empty Endless Mimosa glass...it was a perfect Mother's Day brunch. The waitstaff was attentive, but not overly so, the food was amazing, the atmosphere is beautiful & fun. If only they could have done something about the snow... :)

  • Easter Sunday brunch w/family
    VickVIP
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    We dined for brunch at Ignite many Sundays in the past. We enjoyed our time in the past. We made 2 group reservations for our family/friends, which included small children & listed on our reservations. we preferred the upstairs patio, we understood the demands of a larger group and were seated downstairs. The hostess was too busy dealing w/walk-ins w/o reservations to deal w/seating our group efficiently. Once seated, we saw that the upstairs patio got priority because it took us at least 20 minutes to get a first drink. Food wasn't much faster and altho our reservations were for 12:15/12:30, we barely made it out of the restaurant by 2 PM. In speaking w/the manager no accommodations were made, but at least we got some service.

    I have never had a bad experience at Ignite. I love the atmosphere (roof top in the warmer weather) and they have strong, diverse list of bourbons and whiskey. I do wish that they would have kept the mussels on the menu, but they do have other great dishes to choose from.

    Food was terrific, even for our finicky group. There's not a lot of options for vegetarians. Our server was amazing, she never let our drinks get low. Roof top is awesome. Just be careful of parking in the back 'Ignite Patron Parking' on Rockies game days-they'll tow you for sure. Thankfully the manager warned us before that happened.

    Ignite had great food and really good drinks. I suggest getting a reservation and sitting on the rooftop in the summer if you can. The "man candy" (bacon) and the brussel sprout apps were amazing! We had the beet salad with blackened salmon, mac & cheese, short ribs, and filet tips for dinner and everyone gave rave reviews! We will definitely be going back soon!

    Went in for the last day of Denver Restaurant Week around 7:30pm. I had the pork tenderloin, which was good, but just a tad bit overcooked. The flavors of the apple glaze were great. I loved the mashed potatoes and charred asparagus too. My date had the Scottish salmon and loved it. Let's talk about that Mancandy though. Candied bacon, flecked with red chili flake! What could possibly be wrong with that? So good, I ate an order of it there and took one to go. Mark, our server was efficient, friendly, and didn't rush us at all. The dining room had a good energy, but the bar was not really busy at all. Ignite also included a free glass of wine in their Denver Restaurant Week Menu. Overall, a great deal for Denver Restaurant Week!

    We went to Ignite for 5280 week.The 5280 menu really didn't have anything special on it, so we decided to just have the appetizers. We had the Man candy (bacon with a sweet glaze and spicy). It was excellent. The Mussels and they were okay. Brussell Sprouts excellent and the cheese steak egg rolls were fantastic. It all cost less than the 5280 menu. They have a good beer selection and a vibrant atmosphere. Our waitress Christine was outstanding. She was always coming around and the food came out fast. She even fixed a wobbly table for us. I wouldn't go to Ignite specifically for dinner, bur if you want good appetizers, great beer and fantastic service - Go. It's right near Coors field, so we will definitely go back before or after a game.

    I was in Denver from Philadelphia to visit my boyfriend. Being from such a foodie city, I was nervous to try out the restaurants. I totally picked Ignite randomly due to its name and roof top bar. We liked the restaurant week menu so we decided to make a reservation. I loved the atmosphere and the food was great! The jalapeño deviled rags were fantastic and so were the filet tips. I wasn't that enthused about the stuffed pork because it was a bit sweet for my taste. Our desserts were great too! I really liked that a glass of wine came with our dinner for restaurant and that we also had the option of ordering from the regular menu instead of the restaurant week menu. That rarely happens in Philly during restaurant week!

    We ate here before going to a show at the DCPA. My reservations always mention that both my hubby I have gluten and dairy intolerances, and if it will be a problem to accommodate us to please call. While the menus at Ignite are not marked to allow for easy ordering, out waitress was very good and patient. She checked with the kitchen on several dishes, caught some appetizers that we thought were safe but weren't, and seemed both knowledgeable and conscientious about our needs. In the end there were only a handful of things on the menu we could order, but they were delicious. We can give thumbs up to the fried brussels sprouts, roast chicken, and beet tips. The atmosphere was I would call upscale pub.
