    Four of dined, had cocktails and wine. We asked to split the bill four ways evenly. The check arrived with each item ordered divided by either six or three. We could never imagine an establishment ever presenting guests with the likes of that kind of billing. It was very confusing to say the least.

    This was the first time my husband and I had ever been to La Cave and it was such a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. My husband had the lamb shank and I had the salmon and we were both happy with our choices. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary so we ordered both an appetizer (Parisian Tartlet) and dessert (Tiramisu) which is something we never do and I'm so glad we did. Both were fantastic. We will definitely be going back very soon!

    La Cave is easily the best restaurant in the Lakewood/Golden area, and one of the best in Denver. The food is creative and eclectic--a refreshing change from the tired fare in far too many restaurants. The price is reasonable for a restaurant of this calibre. The hospitality and service are unparalleled. Youssef, the co-owner, pours his heart into every dish, and makes his guests feel very special and welcomed. My wife and I had our anniversary dinner here, and were treated like royalty. We are now regulars. The wine list reflects the overall quality of this restaurant, with good offerings at all price points. Don't be fooled by the Sheraton affiliation; this is a high quality private restaurant run by foodies for foodies.

    The food was very good, but the rest of the experience was lacking. Our waiter spilled several things, including part of my very expensive martini. The table had plastic flowers and no table cloth. Not the type of experience you expect at this price point. I had made a note with my reservation that we were celebrating my husband's birthday. My husband ordered dessert and after it was served I wished him a happy birthday (no candle or anything on the dessert). The server then came back and asked my husband if he wanted a "birthday" glass of wine, when he was already eating dessert, which we turned down as we were close to being ready to leave. Hard to see how this place stays open.

    My family and I enjoyed ourselves at the Easter Brunch on Sunday. We would have liked a few more food choices. My son was really craving pasta and that would have been something cheap to offer. The salad offerings were way to small. My husband loves an omelet bar but I realize that is harder to do. Price was just right for us.

    From the time I entered the restaurant until I departed, everyone was pleasant and accommodating. The owner checked in twice during my meal. French Onion Soup was excellent and flavors were perfectly balanced. Dungeness crab cakes were some of the best outside of Oregon (I live there, you can believe me). Main course Scallops were out of this world. Perfectly seasoned, cooked to perfection. The wine menu is extensive, and the sommelier’s knowledge helps pairing the meal with the perfect wine. Whether one is guest at the hotel or looking for a great local place.

    The menu items looked interesting. French onion soup was ordinary. Mel's chicken was tasteless and way way over priced. South Indian Curry was very good and the rice was cooked correctly but was not very flavorful. The presentation of the entrees was very poor. The decor was okay but the view of the parking garage was less than exciting . The service was very good and the food arrived promptly. Even thought the experience was a disappointment I will probably try it again because of the other menu items.

    The entire party had a very enjoyable birthday celebration on our first visit to La Cave. 4 of the group raved about the fish & chips, 1 loved her BLT and huge salad. I cannot say enough about the scallops - cooked perfectly with lovely sauce and the addition of shredded zucchini was the perfect touch. The scallops were the best I've had since I lived in Brittany, the home of French Scallops acclaimed throughout France. Our waiter Mazzei G was very patient with our party of 6 animated and talkative ladies after 30 odd years as friends!! We were never rushed. Sorry Mazzei, we'll be back again and ask for you. Only one hiccup when the bartender produced old-fashioned's instead of manhattans, but they were promptly replaced and enjoyed.

    An area search on Open Table revealed this great find. The name of the place is what piqued our interest, but when we saw it was in the Sheraton, we were a bit apprehensive since hotel restaurants, especially at a Sheratons, can sometimes be a bit disappointing. The very first thing we saw when we got there, however, was a a wonderfully stocked wine collection, and the ambience in the bar area looked very appealing. The service was fantastic! Logan genuinely cared about making sure we had a wonderful evening. The crown jewel of the personnel, however, was the manager Youssef. He was very warm, friendly, and chatted with us at length. You can tell he puts himself into this place so that it succeeds. Go to this great place - really.

Appetizer took over 45 mins to table without a word from the server the food was not cooked properly- Lamb shank(odd flavor and didn't feel well later that evening, Chicken(very dry, hard to chew it) Other customers were sending back their entrees as well.

    Having to find a place to eat for New Years that was not tied down to a special "exclusive event" menu at outrageously expensive prices was an endeavour, but my wife and I were able to hit the jack pot with La Cave. The ambiance was great, the noise level was quiet, and while waiting for our table we were given a free complementary glass of champagne each. The food was terrific, and they were even able to accomodate my desire to have an item off of their special evening dinner even when I was not going with that full five course package. Truly an incredible experience.

    We had a group of five and we all took advantage of the Pri Fixe offering for NY Eve. The food was outstanding. With the excepetion of the chocolate dessert which was a disappointment. The service was very good but, near the end of our dinner, things got a bit disjointed. We waited quite some time for coffee and then desserts. Our server was very good and I think it was a matter of too few servers. All the staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The chocolate dessert and the slow service at the end of our dinner were the only reason the restaurant just got a "very good" rating. All in all - we will definitely go back.

    My husband and I went to La Cave early on New Year's Eve. We were pleasantly surprised at how pretty the view of Denver was. We were seated quickly, hostess was friendly, & our waiter was great. The meal started out well & the food was very good. But when it came to dessert, things started to fall apart. Our waiter told us he had put in the order for our dessert, and then we waited & waited, & then waited some more. We finally inquired about the desserts, as we were hoping to catch a movie and had already been at the restaurant 1 1/2 hours. We were told the kitchen was "backed up". Finally, got desserts after waiting 45 min, and having missed the movie. However they did "comp" one of the meals, so they did try to make things better.

    We arrived 30 minutes earlier than our 7:30 reservation. The restaurant was moderately busy, but not full. We were seated immediately, and the waiter came to take our drink order. The wait service met expectations. The problem was that the kitchen kept running out of dishes and was not communicating in a proactive manner to the waiter, so he had to relay the shortage and ask us for another selection. This happened 3 times on the entree order. They even ran out of bread. The waiter clearly felt badly about the situation and brought us soup on the house. All of the food that did make it to the table was delicious.

    The food was excellent, however the menu was short on options for vegetarians. We booked for 5:30, which was fine since it was a holiday, because open table showed the restaurant as booked but there were only 3 other parties dining in the entire restaurant! This will be the last time I use open table as the site consistently misrepresents availability.

    Dined on 11/2/2013
    We chose to go to La Cave Wine Bar after reading positive reviews, but we were disappointed. There is really nothing special about the atmosphere or the food. We had hoped to sit at a window and take in the view, but that small section was reserved. Our table was in a nondescript room with nothing to look at. There were no other diners in our area. We took our dessert in the bar which had a better ambiance. The food was nothing special that one couldn't get at a more interesting place. We ended up having two different servers. Our first server was not even aware of menu items and had to look at the menu to answer questions. He left to serve a larger party and luckily we had a more congenial and knowledgeable server. We will not return.

    The lobby was well appointed. The bar seemed attractive. There was live music, a classical guitar player that could have added a warm ambience to the dining experience, had dinning not been mediocre. The dining area where we were seated had a view of the parking lot through which one did see city lights. I found the dinning level view of the parking lot distracting. The food was acceptable save for the price, which transformed it to less than a value. The service while adequate would not be described as attentive. The host did come by and said hello, but I felt he was discharging his appointed tasks as opposed to a real interest our experience. The final tab did not justify what was considered a bland experience. .

    Long wait between appetizer and main course. Not sure what the problem was in the kitchen as there were only five filled tables in the restaurant. Only had one person waiting tables yet there were several additional people just filling water glasses. Food was good but nothing special. Will try one more time in a few months but there are just too many other good restaurants in Denver to eat at if it does not live up to our expecttions.
