    I've eaten here several times mainly for the scenic rooftop views. The food is good but the mixed drinks are lame. If you;re having food and a beer or soda, great... if not, go somewhere else for quality alcoholic beverages.

    This was my first time at Lodo's and after all the hype I can say that it more than lives up to it. The staff was excellent from the time I walked in the door all the way until they saw myself and group of friends out. They had a great selection of food and drinks and the view off the porch was spectacular. I would highly recommend this for anyone including families.

    This is a busy place but maybe they were surprised to be busy on a Friday night because they seemed understaffed and overwhelmed. Hostess sent us upstairs, upstairs hostess sent us downstairs, in the end counted us as a no-show on Open Table... Service took forever and order wasn't right... In the end food was good enough. Maybe service is better at other times. Otherwise they have some work to do. But maybe they are too busy to care.

    Went here during a visit to see family in Highlands Ranch, CO. Had a great lunch on the open second floor patio. Had a good burger and my spouse had the Mahi Mahi tacos which she loved. Server did a great job selecting local micro brews based on our tastes. Lots of local beers available from looking at the list of beer on tap. Prices were reasonable and food was really good. Highly recommended.

    Solid place for good bar type food. Wife and I shared Baka tacos and the poblano burger. Both tasty and as expected. The upstairs with the garage doors has a great view. We took our 3 year old and 4 year old with us as well. Kids meals are $2.99 on the weekend which is brilliant marketing. The topper was the manager found out it was our first time there. She took care of the beers my wife and I ordered. $13 off our bill. Good way to keep us coming back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP

    I ordered a mushroom and swiss burger, what came was a burger with an onion ring and bbq sauce. I did not say anything to the waitress and ate the burger, which was ok. When she brought our check I told her about the mistake and she said "did you like it", really not the point. She did take a drink off the check which was acceptable, but I really wanted her to acknowledge the fact that she had made an error, did not happen. Then after leaving, I had a voice message on my phone stating "where are you Mr. Stone we can only hold your table a few more minutes and then we will have to gived it away. I told the hostess at the check in that we were open table customers and she said ok. Seems these ladies are flying by the seat of their pants

    Enjoyed the restaurant and the food. However, we made our reservation and even called a couple hours before to make sure we were on the Reservation list. We have had experiences before where we do a reservation here, but the restaurant doesn't have it. When we got there, we were told that even though we have a reservation, we still needed to call ahead because we did our reservation on line. Why? What is the purpose of a reservation if you still have to call ahead. And we had Just spoken to the restaurant a couple hours earlier and confirmed the reservation. Does it really need to be that hard? Either you do reservations, or you don't. Why have the availability to do it online when it means nothing and you still have to call ahea

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/8/2012
    I originally called to make a reservation and the hostess transferred me to a manager to make the reservation. No one answered so I had to leave a message....kind of weird. After a few hours, we were on our way but running a bit late so I called to let the hostess know and she didn't have our reservation so I had to make a new one with her for ten people on the patio for my sister's 22nd birthday party. Once we arrived, we went upstairs and the hostess on the patio didn't have either of the reservations!! She told us luckily the football game just ended because people were leaving and they might have room for us. It was pretty frustrating!! After we sat at our table, our server made the experience much better! Everyone had a great time.

    I was very disappointed by the wait. After making a reservation I still waited over an hour for a table. I will probably not do another happy hour there for my work parties. Lodo needs a better system to avoid the waiting issues and or something to compensate for the wait... They did neither .

    View was fantastic. Would be worth going there for that alone, but food was fantastic. Ordered the nacho appetizers and they were huge! 6 people ate off them and we all had plenty. Atmosphere was really nice as well. We went on sunday when they had the accoustic guitar which was nice, but it was really loud. Tje musician was inside and we were outside on the opposite end and we still had to talk really loud to hear each other. But was great experiance and will be back.

Not sure what happened but staff did not seem to know what was going on and then ignored us after that.

    We did get an outside table with great outdoor views. The service was a bit slow. A couple of the orders were delivered incorrectly. My wife had to wait 20 minus for two slices of bread that were supposed be part of the meal. Overall, we were meeting friends and had a nice time.. The splashing was a nice touch.

    Had large group from out of town and wanted to sit upstairs. Big mistake. Because it was windy, the woindows were closed and it was unbearably hot. The waiter did not have any recommendations for entrees- I don't think he had ever eaten there. Way too noisy for conversation. Mahi Mahi Taco had almost no fish. No one at our table raved about their meal. Very disappointed.

    Dined on 5/4/2012
    Went to Lodo's to watch the Nuggets playoff game, even called in advance to let them know. We've seen the Nuggets broadcast here, so figured it would be a good place to watch. When we arrived, hardly any of the tvs were on the game, we actually had to request a channel change, and, even then, tvs were broadcasting TNT rather than local Altitude. Our seating location turned into dance floor in the middle of the game without any notice, forcing us to move of our own accord (no waitress to be found) to a tiny booth. The ambiance was loud and immature, and the food was average; the noodles for my mac n' cheese were so overcooked that I couldn't eat more than a few bites. Waitress paid little to no attention to our table. Wouldn't return.

    Found the food here to be quite a let down. Cheap ingredients. A bit run down, I guess it is one of those "happening" bars at night, and it smells like it. The only thing I liked was that I could make my own bloody mary, so I could have it the way I like it, very spicy. I will not go back though, i can make those at home and eat much better food. It did look like they had a fun upper level with a nice view of the Mtns.

    Our experience was wonderful. I was pleased to see the online reservation option. Was glad I had called back to request the outdoor seating. Was impressed to get a call as we were on our way there that things had filled up but they'd save us the next available seat. Was thrilled when we got there, and there was a prime table just waiting for us. Amazing service, food and views. Thanks for the great time! I only wished there was a coupon out there to utilize. Always helps.

    I love LoDos for their rooftop patio and would have rated this visit higher if we could have enjoyed some outdoor dining - the view is absolutely stunning and on a nice day there is no where I would rather be - unfortunately it was pretty windy and overcast that day so we had to sit inside which is just nothing special. The food is always good - kind of American bar fare and the "make your own bloody mary bar" is fun for brunches! When the weather is nice they also have bands playing on the patio at times which is cool but can be loud.

    Our family of four went out for dinner. Being new to the area we chose Lodo's, we had driven by and loved the look of the patio. The patio was great. The food mediocre, the service left something to be desired. Today as I was eating lunch I realized the chicken I had with my McDonald's Asian salad was better than the marinated chicken I had at Lodo's last Saturday night. My husband enjoyed his entree as did my son. My daughter took one bite of her sandwich and asked for something else. It's too bad, because the location of Lodo's is great. We will try some of the other local hangouts before we go back.
