A word from Kachina Southwestern Grill
Kachina-A modern Southwestern restaurant that sits comfortably close to Denver and Boulder, yet just far enough away to escape the exhaustive beat and to truly enjoy a festive gathering with friends and family.
There’s nowhere better to relax and soak in the rich Southwest culture and its spirited cuisine than Kachina: an inviting oasis where you can sit by a calming Kiva fireplace on an expansive patio while looking out toward the Rockies in the distance.
Our chefs take diners on a culinary journey back to the land with grilled bison, green chile burgers, posole, Navajo tacos and more, just as the locals have done for hundreds of years.
Kachina also features an extensive wine list, local & regional brews, and creative, crafted cocktails. Let Kachina's collection of handcrafted tequilas and artisan mezcals expand your horizon.

Diner Reviews
  • "The menu is confusing, but once you find your way through the maze, the food is excellent. The ambience is fine, but noisy. Makes it impossible to have a quite conversation or feel any sense of intimacy. We were seated near a portable grill in an aisle, and had to endure waves of heat and smoke from grilling meats."

  • "The food is unusual and outstanding, the service is great. My only suggestion would be to turn the music down; it was sometimes hard to hear over it."

  • "Most unique (and wonderfully tasty) southwestern food in Denver. Reasonable and super fun atmosphere! Service was perfect… Can't wait to return!"

  • "Place was loud, service was TOO intense, too much attention is just as bad as not enough..... wait staff did not read cues. Finally, food was just so-so"

  • "Recommended by a friend and was looking for a nice place for a business dinner. It was awesome. Service was great and our server was outstanding! Will definately go back for patio dining and for the excellent food."

  • "Our first time to try Kachina's was a success. We LOVED the guac trio with blue corn chips. All Puffy Navajo nachos are worth trying--superb sauces in each. Wish we'd had room for desert. Mixed drink specials: go for it and split if necessary! Great view and great time. Tad noisy, so maybe go to awesome patio, if that might be an issue...."

  • "I am a regular here and am always please with both food and service. Our server was very energetic and friendly and she obviously knows a lot about the menu and wines. The food was yummy as always with all 3 of us being very happy with what we got."

  • "Went for an early dinner 5:30, thinking it would be a quiet dinner time, Yikes! Very noisy several large groups. The bar is right in the restaurant area with extra loud music playing throughout the restaurant. Combine that with loud groups during happy hour it was very hard to talk and have a quiet dinner... However it was raining so patio dining was not being used and once the Happy Hour groups left, it was an enjoyable experience . 7:00 could be a better dinner time. There are several dining areas farther back that could have solved this problem few diners at the time and we thought those areas were closed, (wrong) just ask next time. Service:outstanding Food: was well prepared and yummy. We will try again."

  • "This restaurant is a standout among all of the restaurants (i.e. suburban chain types) in the area. While it's attached to a hotel, it's not your average hotel food. The tacos and margaritas (and other fun craft cocktails) are outstanding. They are also able to accommodate gluten-free and vegetarian diets (without sacrificing flavor). It's a really great place!"

  • "This is a great restaurant if you are looking for something a little different. Their cocktails have some unique (good!) flavors. The guacamole is spicy and flavorful. The navajo tacos are great -- all combos! After visiting, I'm still a little hesitant on accepting the "street taco" maker. It just seems kinda awkward every time. I'm not sure what the purpose is, especially since the guy making them this past time didn't cook anywhere near us. Why have a cart for cooking in the middle of the restaurant if the folks that order it can't see? It was a delicious little taco though!"

  • "I took a date there. Classy place in the Westin hotel with valet parking. Good food and service, but so loud I could barely hear my date's voice."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I don't usually think that restaurants in hotels are that noteworthy, but Kachina is an exception. Food is locally sourced and deliciously prepared. I've never had a disappointing meal here. My only complaint is the noise level - it can be quite loud, but it's a small price to pay for reasonably priced tasty fare."

  • "We had a really great experience with our waiter. He was very sweet and patient. He took the time to thoroughly explain the menu. We had an amazing time at Kachina. The food was AMAZING and it's always wonderful to know that you are eating food that comes from Colorado. Very well done."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Navajo Tacos & guacamole were excellent as appetizers or entree. Bison ribeye was excellent & very large. Chicken & Chorizo ordered by 2ppl-one person liked, the other didn't. Overall, $330 + was too pricey for the service received & food. Had noted on our reservation the special occasion, but nothing was done for us or the occasion was not even the mentioned."

  • "We were entertaining a client before a show at the 1st Bank Center. LOVED IT! The food was great. The wine list is good. And, we went back after the show for dessert. Very good. It's easy to eat there because of the valet service and the location. "

  • "The food was really good. The food was served by many and no one knew what was going on. Never got all that we ordered. Would not go back. Not worth the money."

  • "Katchina had the best mothers day brunch menu! Food was delicious and can't beat bottomless mimosas :) The restaurant was the beautiful! Definitely going back with my husband for a date night. "

  • "Went there for Sunday Brunch on Mothers' Day. Food was certainly adequate, and an attempt was made to present the dishes in an appealing manner. There was no question that this was mass-produced food, though. All the meats were over-cooked and dry, and the potatoes were fine, but lacked any particular flair. If you are looking for an upscale gourmet Sunday Brunch, this is NOT the place! It was a decent value, though. The wait staff, to a person, was very courteous and attentive. You might say the food did not quite live up to the level of the staff."

  • "My wife and I continue to love our regular visits to the always amazing Kachina SWG! Both of us really feel like we've become friends of the staff. The managers have all been gracious, warm, and welcoming (this includes the host station). Our server, once again, was exemplary, as usual. We were well taken of, as we always are, and we so appreciate it. The food was again, excellent. Our compliments to the chef! I must also compliment the bartender, as they make the best dirty martinis I've ever had!"

  • "My daughter looked online for a fun restaurant with good food in our new neighborhood. She did super. Her Dad and I dined at Kachina's on Sat. night celebrating Mother's Day. Service was very attentive and prompt. Appetizer of duck taco was so…………tasty. We had delicious Colo. Bass and Bison Meatloaf balls (balls were a bit spicy though). Dessert was the top of the evening. Especially the Chile Chocolate sauce with beignets. Wow, that dish alone would merit a return visit. *Note: I did bite into the pepper that came with the duck taco and whoa it was hot!!! A packet of sugar and a lemon slice got rid of the burn. Seeing boys and girls come in dressed for their proms was delightful. :)"

  • "The food was pretty good but the service was a bit lacking. It's hard to write this but our waitress had awful breath, it really was unbearable. I didn't even want to ask about the specials because that meant she'd have to talk more. The food was good though, but the bad breath just made it uncomfortable and unappetizing. "

  • "We have been meaning to go to this restaurant for quite some time now. We saw the great reviews, and they were definitely right on! Everything was great! Loved the food, loved the ambiance, and loved the service. It's definitey worth going to. "

  • "I'm so glad I found this hidden gem! I was looking at the "Broomfielder" magazine that had a list of local eateries. I saw Kachina on there and decided we needed to go. I then looked at their website...staff, menus, happy hours. WOW! Six of us went on a Saturday night and all of us were happy! Our original reservation was made online, but then I needed to change it. I called and spoke with James, he was so kind and accommodating. I had the pleasure of meeting him when we arrived. I can't wait to go back on a Thursday, which is ladies night. Thank you!"

  • "Failed to ask for our favorite server, so we paid a bit of a price. Our server was not much help in making selections, and the first margarita I had was pathetic. Almost impossible to get drinks refilled. We even had a manager tell us he would get more drinks, never happened. So we won't make that mistake again. Katy is the best!"

  • "A great experience overall; terrific ambiance & decor added to an exciting menu with a variety of options (the quail legs were great!). The patio looks like a great space (it was too windy the day we went). The service was just the right balance of being attentive without seeming like an interruption. I would've liked to see the food cart executed differently. It's a menu selection that changes regularly. It was described so well by the woman running it and we thought the cart would be rolled over and it would be prepared right in front of us however she came back with a plate all prepared, would have LOVED to see the the entire process done table side. But a great place overall!"

  • "We had a great seating situation for our large group. Some of the food was good but we all thought it was very different. Some, everyone liked but some food, not so much. For me as a vegetarian it was not vegetarian friendly. The kids loved the "Easter Egg room" but did not like the food at all. We really liked the menu set-up of an all you can eat, served, not a buffet..just the food choices weren't the best. The biscuits were extremely good."

  • "I have lived in Westminster for almost 18 years, and have always had to drive either south to Denver or west to Boulder for a good restaurant. Not anymore! Kachina is a very welcome food oasis in the middle of national chains and fast food. The Native American-inspired food offers a unique alternative to the "usual suspects." The menu offers excellent flavor and delicous spins on many of familiar classics, and provides variety without overwhelming you with too many choices. To top it off, the service, from the moment you enter until the moment you leave, is outstanding. We will definitely go back and try their outdoor seating as soon as our Colorado evenings are warm enough. "

  • "The food is fantastic and the service outstanding! The wait staff is extremely well trained and know the menu inside and out. Everyone is very attentive but not at all over bearing. They pay attention and are there anytime you need something. I've been to Kachina on several occasions and have tried several of the dishes. Everything I have ordered has been excellently prepared and tastes fantastic. I highly recommend this place."

  • "From point of entry to paying and leaving, the entire experience was wonderful. Freddy, our server, was knowledgeable, accommodating (I'm a celiac and my daughter is gluten intolerant), and most patient, as we were enjoying dinner with my dad, and we're all foodies - sampling the options from appetizer through dessert. Freddy even brought out a desert sampler when he learned that we were starting our daughter's birthday celebration that night with dinner and Harlem Globetrotters. We are definitely coming back here again."
