Thank you Old Major!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWowzers, you'll love the grub here!Amazing food and presentation, knowledgeable staff and the drinks we made perfectly!
We will definitely return!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenalExceeded all expectations from cocktails at the bar to the lobster plate to the incredible ability to showcase the entire pig in the nose to tail plate. The halibut was flavorful and simply delightful. I recommend Old Major to anyone seeking a great meal in a beautiful setting topped off with perfect service.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHog heavenWhat an addition to Denver's dining scene! It celebrates good liquor and great pork. The lobster hot plate, seemingly incongruous: tater tots, lobster, cheese and peas?, was a wonder and worth the price of admission. I never thought I'd utter: any more of those crispy pig's ears left? But I did. Twice. Can't wait to return!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I had a wonderfulMy wife and I had a wonderful experience at Old Major. The food was outstanding, the service was exceptional and we truly enjoyed to feel of the room. We will be back.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Experience!We loved our experience at Old Major! The food was delicious and the service was superb. Props to the sommelier for making Old Major stand out from the other great restaurants in Denver.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat addition to the neighborhoodWe had a delicious dinner and great cocktails. I'd highly recomend the spring chicken and my husband enjoyed the nose to tail. And the bacon caramel dessert was amazing.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service and Great FoodIt was my first time on this gem of a place and it will not be the last!
Especially now that I live in Lower Highlands, this is a great addition to the neighborhood establishment. Our wine steward made a great recommendation of Pinot Noir that was paired well with our meal ( had the rabbit). Additional bonus was a the complementary aperitif drink from my friend Paul Attrardi, formerly of Fruition.
This is great addition to the Denver's restaurant scene!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDelectableLoved everything about this restaurant. Food was fun and excellent! Great atmosphere--rustic, yet chic! Excellent wait staff--very attentive. Looking forward to going again very soon!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNose to Tail is amazing!The halibut was also great. Service here is one of the best in town. Keep up with the great service and food, Old Major. This is a major hit!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the bestReally excellent food, great service a place I will be visiting again and again. I just can't stop talking about Old Major!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYum.Everything that hit our table was delicious. We ordered 2 chickens and 2 nose to tail plates, which all went over very well. However, I would say the highlights were the appetizers and drinks. Crafted cocktails made to order were praise-worthy, and the mussels left us wanting more. I would go back to kick off the night just for apps and drinks...5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experience at Old MajorFinally we got the chance to dine at Old Major! We made reservations three weeks in advance and could only get 545pm. Plan ahead! Go early and start with a cocktail at the bar (#awesome is the name of one of the drinks and is, indeed, awesome). Each dish was delicious. Standouts were the lobster tater tots and the halibut. Try to get a table near the kitchen as it is open and fun to watch. Excellent service, great ambiance and delicious food! I only wish it were slightly more affordable so I could go more often!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING!!!!!! A++++++++++++++Another outstanding dinner at the Old Major. We have been there seven times!!! It was spectacular on every level!!! The schnitzel is to die for, as well as the grilled Caesar salad, oysters, mussels, lobster tater tots - could go on and on.. You can't go wrong with any item on the menu. Try the Fair Deal drink - scotch, Drambuie - so smooth...so delicious. A++++++++++++++++++++5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMKeep Coming Back For More!I never thought my first visit to Old Major could be beat. Then we went a second time! The service is unlike anything I've experienced in Colorado. Every person in the OM "family" goes out of their way to ensure an amazing experience. It seems like no matter which fancy, popular restaurant I visit someone in my dining party has a 'so-so' meal...not the case at OM. Every appetizer, entree, and dessert was flawlessly executed and we each LOVED what we ordered and were sure to share with everyone at the table. The wine list is spectacular and the sommelier will help you pick an unforgettable bottle of wine. I implore you...visit this restaurant. Let your standards and expectations of dining in Denver be transformed! You won't regret it!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, great service,Delicious food, great service, very classy...my husband and I loved everything about our evening! It will definitely be 'the' place we will go for special events!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall plates were amazing.Small plates were amazing. Entres fantastic. Service was friendly and passionate4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLife in HighlandsWe celebrated a birthday, wow did he have fun. I will be back soon.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOMG! I can't say enough goodOMG! I can't say enough good things about this place. We had been so looking forward to trying this place out and they knocked it out of the park! We cannot wait to go back again! Our waiter was John and he was wonderful. I will be coming back for years to come. So nice to have a great place in the highlands area... The food was out of this world and the drink list was spot on! We got to go in the kitchen and watch them butcher a pig! Talk about interactive dining! Well done guys, VERY well done.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFAVORITE new restaurant inFAVORITE new restaurant in Denver. This place is awesome - every single bite of food was simply amazing. Our table started with the Lobster/Tater Tot appetizer and I would highly recommend it. You can even dip the homemade pretzel bread in the leftover sauce from the app (which is delicious). I had the Nose-to-Tail entree and it was worth every penny. I was expecting a "sample" of each type of pig but that was not the case. I got a huge piece of pork belly, an entire pork chop, a HUGE pork rib and a tasty slice of ham. The bacon custard desset was simply to-die-for - whole mean in a nutshell??? YUM! :-)4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb ExperienceOld Major lives up to the hype. The atmosphere is perfectly urban, and it's so refreshing to find a place that serves after 9 p.m. on a week night. With two servers per table, the service is first rate. I got the sense that everyone who worked there was at the top of their game and proud to be part of the organization--They give the impression that they all partner-share in the ownership. My S.O. and I tried a variety of appetizers and side plates to accompany a shared a pork sampler entre. Everything was superb. And the open, impeccable kitchen gave us a clear view of the butcher who was still working at 9:45 p.m. Seeing the care and attention to detail with which the cuts are selected and handled added to my enjoyment of the meal.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service, but not food.The vegetarian selections need some work. They were flavorful, but almost over done with seasoning and garlic. There weren't many options on the menu. The service really was outstanding and the ambiance was excellent! The meat dishes ranked high, but the rest was just ok. I think this restaurant has great potential, but I'm not sure about all the hype. We had a difficult time making and then changing our reservation, however the restaurant was half empty when we dined there. It was weird.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMPut it at the Top of the ListIt's seldom that a new restaurant on the Denver dining scene makes it above my longtime favorites - Luca D'Italia, Euclid Hall, Marco's, Sushi Sasa, and Bones, but put Old Major at the top of the list (okay, maybe not above my love affair with Luca). What Old Major has is the whole picture - the building and ambiance is killer, the drinks are amazing, the staff is attentive and fun, and the food is simply outstanding. Because the (American-made and crazy inspired) cheese platter is a must have appetizer and because the entrees are bold and bountiful, I haven't yet made it to dessert in two visits but hold out hope that it can be accomplished. Get the cheese platter, get the Nose to Tail, get the Colorado Sea Bass; get yourself to Old Major!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally a place in DenverFinally a place in Denver that delivered best in class food AND service! Too many times one or the other was missing from our dining experience. There was an enthusiastic dinner crowd with noise never getting to the level where my wife and I could not carry a normal conversation. Do your best to save room for desert.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss it!I can't say enough good things about our experience here. Not for the budget-conscious diner, but don't let that stop you! If you're looking for a place for a very worthwhile splurge, this is it!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMYUMMY!You should eat here... often!! This is a lovely little restaurant that specializes in Seafood, Swine, and Wine... we sampled all 3 during our visit and were so impressed. I'm a die hard pork/bacon lover and this place really hit the spot!! I got bacon in my entree and in my dessert and I was a happy, happy girl! Service was wonderful and the waitstaff was so helpful and knowledgeable. Wonderful meal and RIDICULOUSLY delicious food!!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOld Major takes it up a notchOld Major takes it up a notch (or two) with their preparations of seafood and meat - most notably pork. They are known for locally sourcing their produce and meat and do all their own butchering. Wonderful inventive decor that has you noticing something new every time you look around. The open kitchen lets you know they have nothing to hide. Everything we had was artfully prepared and you could tell a lot of thought went into the presentation. The halibut was especially moist and flavorful as were the scallops. We couldn't find a weak link in the cuisine chain!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Swine is outstanding.The 'Nose to Tail,' signature pork dish, was outstanding. All of the elements were outstanding. For presentation, the ham was very good, but seemed a bit of an afterthought. The rabbit entree was also very good, in particular the 'rabbit belly' roll.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really liked parts of eachWe really liked parts of each dish, but didn't love each dish entirely. Drink list on an ipad is cool but seemed to take longer for us to decide because we have to keep going back and forgetting what we looked at. Service was great and the space is stunning.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was fantastic andThe staff was fantastic and the food was great too! We will be back!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe schnitzel was a bit blandThe schnitzel was a bit bland and didn't have a great taste. I won't order it again.
Otherwise, everything was great....service was spectacular...wine was an interesting choice by the sommelier, not my favorite but not bad. The overall experience was very nice and a smart restaurant with intriguing options. We will be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOff The Chain Good.This dude can cook. There's nothing more to say. It was AWESOME!!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLove, love, LOVE Old Major!Love, love, LOVE Old Major! It's my fiancee and I's favorite spot.

Every aspect of our experience far exceeded our expectations.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome in the Highlands!A friend recently recommended Old Major to us and we were pleasantly surprised to be able to get a table on the same day but at an earlier time than we wanted.
When I emailed and called to see if there was a later reservation available, I received a call back within 30 minutes.
From the moment my husband and I walked in, were were greeted by friendly staff and shown to our table.
I have never written a review for any restaurant that I've dined at but Old Major left both my husband and I speechless. Everything was incredible! The best food, ambiance and service that I can remember having had in recent years. I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal and cannot wait to go back again!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome time, great food,Awesome time, great food, good drinks, attentive and respectful waitstaff.

Everything was cooked and prepared just right! I am telling my friends about Old Major.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI liked the short and accessibleI liked the short and accessible menu. Even though I didn't care for the iPad approach to drinks at first, it ended up making a lot of sense, especially since I get the feeling the wait staff doesn't know that much about wine. I loved the open kitchen and scoring a table with the kitchen in view is preferable to sitting up front away from the action. The parking attendant is not only welcome, but a requirement for that part of town. I plan on making Old Major a permanent part of my restaurant rotation, along with Mizuna, Lou's Food Bar, Park Burger, Luca d'Italia, Snooze, and Jack 'n Grill.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional experience deliveredExceptional experience delivered by a dynamic staff. Thanks to all.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved every part of ourWe loved every part of our experience at Old Major. From the moment we stepped in the door we were greeted with friendly faces and a prompt Happy Birthday to my fiancee who was turning the big 3-0. We loved the personal attention from our server as well as Bruce who coached us through the wine list and suggested a wonderful bottle for us. The seafood was awesome! Scollops were absolutely perfect. We will be back again soon!!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AM"The 2013 Restaurant of the Year"I was there Sunday and was blown away by the food, so I had to bring another foodie with me last night! Had a four course meal: lamb orecchiette, Caesar with extra anchovies, whole spring chicken, and Banoffee pie - OINK! I really don't know if I want to give a good review, because everyone will go. Then I can see what is going to happen, I will have to make reservations weeks in advance, and I don't like to wait. Old Major is well worth the wait, if there is one. I am not in the industry, but I know it when come accross "It", and these guys have the "It" factor. If you like food, than this is the place for you!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I wanted to tryMy wife and I wanted to try something new for date night. I chose Old Major since there has been a lot of buzz about it lately. This was our first time to Old Major.
We started with the Smoked Fish Plate. It was absolutely fantastic. The mustard sauce for the muscles was outstanding.
For dinner, my wife had the Pan Roasted Colorado Bass and I had the Nose to Tail Plate. My wife loved the bass and raved about the bean salad. My dish was absolutely perfect. Although it was a lot of meat, it was just the right serving size and not overwhelming. The confit rib was the standout and was simply amazing.
We finished off with Banofee Pie. I was a great pie with thick whipped cream, fresh bananas and a good soft crust.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service. MichelinOutstanding service. Michelin starred restaurant presentation and service4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to go back AGAINThis was our second time to Old Major and it was just at great as the first. We orginally had 4 people and last minute a 5th person showed up after our appetizers. They were kind enough to move us to a bigger table without any hassle (espceially for a busy Friday night!). Every single dish that was ordered was delicious. Love the ambiance and everything about Old Major!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service! Bar menu andGreat service! Bar menu and wine are on an iPad which I don't usually like because some restaurants use the technology In place of personal assistance. Not here, as soon as the iPad came to life the sommelier was at our table making wine and cocktail suggestions and taking the order. The food was amazing, our table had pork, rabbit and seafood and it was all so good. The only little minus was the staff being a little too anxious to clear plates and glasses when they weren't even empty, they might ask before putting their hands on my dinnerware. We'll certainly be back!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI am seriously obsessed withI am seriously obsessed with Old Major! My husband and I just celebrated our first anniversary at Old Major and had an incredible experience! I went to Old Major without him the first time and had been begging to go back weekly but he convinced me to wait to celebrate our special day there in just a couple of weeks. It was not easy to wait - I think I've actually dreamt of many of the items on their first menu and I'm dying to try the new menu! We will be back asap! The service was incredible, John was the bee's knees, from the moment we walked in until the moment we walked out. The food was ridiculously good and my only complaint was that I ate far too much - not a bad complaint, though. I'm so looking forward to my next visit!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI am a huge fan of Old MajorI am a huge fan of Old Major and tell everyone I can about it! The service was excellent including a great wine pairing recommendation from Bruce. My after dinner cocktail "the fair deal" is a must try. The food is nothing short of AMAZING! The pretzel bread, oh the pretzel bread! The lobster pot pie... every bite sheer lobstery delight! I want to swim in the cioppino broth or maybe just dab it behind my ears! Oh and the mussels the perfect combo of wine, shallots, lemon and sea (save some pretzel bread to sop up this broth)! The decor is refined but not stuffy and the kitchen is the piece de resistence and the seamless choreography of the chefs is intruiging to watch! I am going again this week to try the new menu and I can't wait!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOld Major completely livedOld Major completely lived up to my expectations. Started with the mussels which were prepared perfectly. My only wish with this dish was that they had been a bit more generous on the broth. My wife got the scallops and I got the pot a fue. Both dishes were prepared perfectly.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
