A great find!
My friend and I were there fairly late on a snowy evening after local theater. We were the only and last guests to arrive. Food and service were exceptional. The ensalada della casa is very good. My friend raved about his boullabaisse and my lamb shank was superb. I noted that the Grappa Bistro is a wonderful find in a small town like Golden. My friend said it is a wonderful find anywhere. It was quiet, though we were the only people there besides three at the bar. The background music was light Parisian jazz and allowed for conversation. I will definitely go back.

Four friends got to gather
Four friends got to gather for a special lunch. Although we couldn't sit on the porch as it was a little chilly we did have a lovely and tasty lunch with great service. It was relaxing and not noisy, and couldn't have been nicer.

Grappa continues to provide good food and, especially in spring and summer, a pleasant outdoor location for lunch. I have never quite realized my ambition of trying everything on the menu, as the restaurant keeps some old favorites, and offers interesting new dishes with some regularity.

Always very friendly and good
This is our favorite spot to eat before the theatre. They are very efficient and always have good food. The menu is great, as there are so many good choices. I always enjoy the fish in parchment paper.

Late Sunday Dinner
Good food. Nice patio. We enjoyed ourselves but restaurant was cleared by 9pm.

Great Gem of Golden!
Loved the restaurant. Would recommend it to everyone! Great Padio view of the creek, beautiful indoor wine bar and ambiance. They even have their own complimentary parking garage! One thing they need to work on, however, is distinguishing their restaurant from the run-down looking Grappa Deli that's right next door. It kind of freaked me out at first, but then I realized that I had to walk north just another 15 feet to the Grappa Bistro. Management should seriously consider renaming the deli to distinguish it from the nicer restaurant. I can't think of any other time that I've seen an odd pairing like that. Odd. Anyway, I highly suggest the restaurant proper to anyone. Ideal for a classy night out or nice date! Cheers!

Our 85th monthly dinner
Two of my friends and I have been going to dinner at fine restaurants once a month since June 2006. This was the first time we have eaten at Grappa. I had the canard a l'orange which was wonderful. I ate every bite. The raspberry crème brulee was also amazing. One of my friends said it was the best pasta primavera she had ever had. The other said the same about her dinner. We will definitely eat there again.

The service is very good and the food is the always elegantly prepared and the taste is perfect. The outdoor patio is next to Clear Creek and is a beautiful setting.

Never a disappointment1
It is surprising to find a restaurant of this quality in a small town like Golden. Interesting, varied continental menu. Something for everyone.

Fantastic food in Golden
Gorgeous setting, fantastic food, friendly staff. We sat in a table that bordered the river under a shady tree. We had the special which was cooked to perfection. Many choices for gluten free and lots of seafood choices which is unusual for Colorado.

Traveling on business from out of town. Made a reservation, but wasn't really needed. Enjoyed it and will probably visit again when traveling to the area.

Leisurely lunch spot
It was a rainy afternoon and perfect for a cozy lunch inside. The server was excellent, attentive and friendly. Food as always was excellent.

We always love Grappa!
The food is always very good and the staff very accommodating. I also really love that they have parking underneath the building. Makes it very easy when Golden is busy.

The food was great, and our waiter was very good at recommending wine for us. Sitting in the bar and listening to Ricardo play piano was a real treat!

Fun for Girls' Lunch
I have only been to Grappa for lunch on Fridays and always have the seafood ravioli. This Friday Special is very light homemade pasta enclosing lobster and other seafood in a light cream sauce. Not a particularly large serving but perfect size for me for lunch and it's delicious. Grappa has a nice healthy menu and also more substantial offerings; my friend said the fries with her panini were wonderful. I prefer to eat on the outside patio when the weather is nice. It's right on the creek (growing trees and bushes beginning to block view) which is a big draw for me. The service is excellent and the staff always seems to appreciate diners choosing their restaurant. I have recommended this restaurant.

We chose Grappa on a whim, and it was a great choice. The food selection was broad, and it was tough for all of us to pick one dinner with so many great options.

Great food, annoying waiter
This place had great food and a nice patio (although it was a bit cool to be seated outside). But the waiter was soooo obnoxious. When we asked him for recommendations, he didn't suggest things....he told us he would bring out something....without telling us what it was. When we politely asked him for a dessert menu, he told us that we should order the chocolate dessert. He wouldn't even tell us what other choices there were until we insisted. It was really annoying and put a bad spin on the whole meal.
If I can guarantee that I wouldn't get that smarmy waiter again, I would go back.

A bit noisy....
......For a romantic evening without the kids. I think it is just the way the space is designed that lends to a bit of a loud environment. Don't get me wrong - it is not like being in a night club or a sports bar. Maybe it was just that my wife and I were both tired and wanted some quiet on this particular night.
The food was very good as was the service. We will go back.

I have a fondness for Grappa
I have a fondness for Grappa Bistro. A most pleasant place to sit on the outdoor deck, have a lovely glass of wine and visit with family or friends over a delicious lunch.

I live and work in Golden and this is the best restaurant by far. You can go for a special occasion or just drop in for a delicious lunch. Try the lobster ravioli - craveable! And who doesn't love warm bread with olive oil and balsamic...
