Kevin Taylor's At The Opera
WONDERFUL!Kevin Taylor's was wonderful. We were running late for our reservation but called to inform them. Everything from our drinks down to our main course was absolutely perfect. We had the Harris Ranch Beef Tartare along with salads and then both had the lamb for our main dish. Everything was presented so beautifully, service was excellent and the entire evening was better than we had expected. Even though we were late for our original dinner reservation we were still on time (early) for the Opera and I have to credit that to the restaurant and its wonderful staff. The restaurant was beautiful and very comfortable. We will come back again and again for sure!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, great ambienceThe food was delicious and the service was prompt and friendly. I love the decor of this place. Even though you're technically in the basement of the opera house, nothing could feel and look further from a basement. The interior is beautiful, with rockwork on the walls, a grand staircase that takes you down to the restaurant, and a ceiling that looks like the night sky (black with tiny lights that look like stars). My date was impressed as well and that isn't easy to do since he has worked for different restaurants in town (so he's pickier about food, service, etc. than I am).
I would definitely eat here again!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular! From the ambianceSpectacular! From the ambiance to the dining experience it was great. Started with a recommendation from the hostess to try the pork belly appetizer and the pork entree and she was right on. The app was a bit dryer than expected but it went with the other flavors. The entree was moist and cooked perfectly. The Creme Brulee dessert was a good finish. Tried a couple wines and based on a good discussion with my server, I settled on a Clos du Bois Chardonney which was a nice pairing for the pork throughout.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AM"premiums" addedGreat dinner for 5280 week. Our only complaint is there were "premiums" or additional charges for certain foods. That isn't in the spirit of 5280 Denver week. We have been participants of 5280 since the start and this is a charge that is new to us. Otherwise the dinners were beyond reproach, wait staff just wonderful and total experience is good enough that we will be booking again during the theater season.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
