As Good as They Said
I was pretty pumped to visit this place after all the positive reviews I found online. I was not disappointed. The food was amazing and very interesting. I saw so many recommendations for the Man Candy that I gave that a shot as well and it was as awesome as the reviews said it was. So much fun. The drinks were kind of unremarkable but the waiter was very honest up front and let me know that I might or might not like them. The service was fantastic. All very helpful, positive, and informative. Food arrived on time and hot. We ended up staying for three hours and never had to ask for refills on water or drinks. I've already recommended the place to five other people.

The food here never disappoints. I'm currently trying to work through every dish on the menu. Great atmosphere and awesome service too!

Phenomenal food. They make
Phenomenal food. They make their own Burratta, creamy and decadent. Rigatoni infused with an herby tomato sauce, served piled in a cast iron pan, and the Pork Loin atop a sweet potato mash are incredibly satisfying. The Pear Spice Cake looks simple but the flavors are complex; the plate was barely on the table and we had scarfed it down.

More than just a Pizza place!
We enjoyed a really good dinner here. I had Pork Chops and my husband had a steak. Both cooked just right.

A great date night choice.
I was pleasantly surprised by the great food and experience that Ignite has to offer. On a busy night, we were served well by all the staff and were treated well during each step of our visit. Our date night started awkwardly when we were placed at the dreaded table in front of the busy kitchen. The hosts and waitstaff were great to move us to the first open table on the patio. Several people gave us some good menu suggestions and followed up appropiately to make sure everything was going well with our dinner. The timing of our night, service, and menu selections were excellent. We walked away saying WOW and plan to come back soon. We suggest the boneless Pork Chops with a wonderful apple cider reduction.

I have been wanting to try
I have been wanting to try brunch here for sometime. Who can pass up $9 bottomeless mimosas?! As always, the food was amazing. Great service too. We'll be making this a tradition when the weather gets a little nicer and we can enjoy the patio.

Good food and good service
Good food and good service at lunch - who could ask for anything more?

Food was good but the meat
Food was good but the meat was slightly smaller portioned. Parking was terrible though. My car was towed for being in "the wrong lot". Not the resturaunts fault, but be careful while parking to dine.

It was a decent restaurant
It was a decent restaurant with fun food. We had burgers and they were decently priced. I might come back in the future.

Great place for after the game
Calamari was chewy and bland. Wings were delicious. Salmon was excellent. Loved the butternut cannelloni. Service was attentive and friendly. Overall, very good.

We really had good service at Ignite the other day. Thanks!!
5/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
love this place...
Only gave 4 stars in the "overall" category because it was particularly noisy on this visit, and we sat fairly close to the bar. Food? Amazing as usual, and the service was stellar, and she had a great pesonality.
5/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good but slow service
I've been here a few times now, and I always seem to be waiting. Waiting for a waitress to notice my drink is empty or take my order or my food to arrive. Food in general is good though, once you get it.

My first time dining at Ignite was this past weekend for my birthday. Their food was absolutely delicious. I started out disappointed when they informed me they were out of gluten free pizza crusts (I had my heart set on a pizza), but I ended up getting the short ribs instead and they were DELICIOUS. And the portions were huge - I had enough meat to have a full lunch the next day with my leftovers. We also had a personal favorite, fried pickles, that were also delicious. I especially loved their drink selection. Tons of local beers on tap, and their mixed drink selection was very unique! I'm not normally a fan of mixed drinks, but I tried their "Backyard Tea," and was blown away by how delicious it was. Overall, I highly recommend!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was good. Food was good but not amazing. The patio is great. Will try again.
5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a pleasant surprise!
What a pleasant surprise! The wood fired pizzas are SO good and the salads were large and fresh and just really good - I particularly enjoyed the Caesar salad. The real surprise was that I thought by ordering a pizza for lunch it would take a while to get served, but not so. Our server was friendly and the food came out quickly. I raved about it to co-workers and can't wait to go back again!
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
A perfect evening for the rooftop! Arranged a table for 8 on the outdoor rooftop patio to surprise my husband with some friends to celebrate his birthday. Everything turned out better than planned, the service was exceptional and the experience went beyond our expectations. We will definitely return. Thank you for such a fun evening.
5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We kept it light by sharing the sweet-hot bacon known as Man Candy, then a salad and dessert. The food was great, the service wonderful and the ambience great. We will definitely beback.

Delicious, upscale pub grub!
I won a gift certificate to Ignite, so my fiancé and I went there for lunch one afternoon. The food was a delicious, upscale take on traditional pub fare, all at extremely affordable prices. The spinach parmisan dip appetizer was to die for! I had the pulled pork sandwich and he had their classic hamburger, both of which were excellent! We took a piece of the pear spice cake home, and it did not disappoint. Overall, I would highly recommend Ignite!

Man Candy Manhattan
I can't stop thinking about the Man Candy Manhattan--it was smokey, spicy, bacon, whiskey deliciousness & it comes with a garnish of candied bacon! Their drink menu is right on par with the Denver cocktail scene, hand crafted and something for everyone. The food is also outstanding. We shared wings, fried pickles & a prosciutto-fig pizza. The wings are cooked perfectly with a whiskey based sauce--seriously awesome. The fried pickles were battered and crispy, my husband orders them everywhere & these are the best! The pizza was exactly what I expected it to be, complete with greens, prosciutto fresh sliced & perfectly thin. Our service never lacked for anything & the place was hoppin'. Can't wait to go back, Thank you!

Great Before the Rockies
We were looking for a casual restaurant to go to before a Rockies game that wasn't your typical sports bar. And Ignite was a great choice. The place isn't one of those huge, noisy bars, and the food is several steps up from just wings and burgers. We got there early enough to get the $3 Colorado drafts too. We split a wedge salad which has the Man Candy sweet and spicy bacon with a great gorgonzola dressing. And each of us had a pizza which we both enjoyed. The menu isn't huge, but there are plenty of selections that sounded appetizing. We'll probably make this our spot to go to before all the games.

We were a party of four, all having a taste for seafood. We started off with Mussels and calamari. Both were great! The mussels were some of the best I ever had which surprised me. They are cooked in an amazingly tasty butter wine sauce. We all ordered the same entree, Salmon. Really really good. I can hardly wait to go back! 5:30 seems a good time to get there as it was getting very busy when we left to go to the movies.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a marvelous evening. The staff were welcoming and helpful. We sat on the rooftop deck and enjoyed a great beer selection and the excellent Black Raspberry Mojitos. Our dinner was hearty, yet full of interesting twists, like the bourbon jus on the short ribs and the rich sagey chicken pot pie. You have to try the Pear Spice Cake...divine! Casual dining at its very best! Wish we could visit more often!

My husband and I were looking for a quick place to eat before our show this past weekend. I made a reservation for 5:30 but couldn't get there on time because of the traffic. (it was a game day and, little did I know, the stadium is literally across the street from this restaurant.) Anyway, we were late and our show was set to begin in a little over an hour. I was worried that we wouldn't get our food in time but we got it in less than 30 mins. Their wings- OMG their Whiskey wings were so delicious! I wish my husband would've ordered the full batch. Yummy! I had the Ignite burger which had really good flavor and for a great price. My husband had the cast iron rib skillet- I'm sorry, I forgot the name but it was delicious! I'll be back.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
THis was a very, very good restaurant. Our server was such a peach and was always checking to see if we needed anything. Even offered to put my dad's food back in the window to stay warm until he got back from the car. The house made ketchup was delicious and the beer was refreshing and cold. Definitely a great place!
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM

Great city views from the rooftop, food was excellent, lots of people there without it feeling crowded. Definitely going back soon!

We enjoyed the brunch menu, especially the different appetizers! The crowd was lively and fun, prior to a baseball game nearby. The noise was not noticeable because of the open atmosphere upstairs and down.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Going to the ballpark
This is our favorite spot to eat before a Rockies game. We've always had excellent food and the wait staff is friendly and helpful.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great time and food!
Just happened to find this restaurant on Open Table. Checked out the menu and decided to try it while visiting Denver!
Dinner was great! Wine list was good too.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience overall
The food was excellent! We had a large group and tried their pizzas, appetizers, and cast iron dishes. All were fantastic. The drinks were excellent as well. Overall, we had a wonderful time and had no problem bringing a group of 6 in and sitting on the patio. View from up top is great!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and I visited Denver over the past weekend and actually stumbled upon Ignite. Friday night and the place was packed but we were seated quickly. Food was delicious and drinks were even better! We loved it so much we came back for Sunday brunch. Bottomless Mimosas.....FANTASTIC!! Special thanks for our waitress, Jen aka Jenna!! Whenever we make our way back to Denver, I'm certain we'll make our way back to Ignite!!

Good food and great service
Surprised to find the restaurant half empty when most of the early reservations slots were taken. So, we ended up with great service and appreciated the server pointing out the special entree prices for the evening (we were unaware since it was our first time there). Good, casual and spacious atmosphere, plenty of TVs to watch the game, though it is on the noisy side. Most dishes were on the heavy, comfort food side, so I chose the salmon which was cooked perfectly and served hot - just the way I like it. Would recommend for a casual get together and before/after a Rockies game but not for an intimate night out. Also, pleased to see I could get a glass of St. Supery Wine, which is not that easy to find in this state.

Great restaurant near ball park.
Restaurant has great roof top dinning area if you can get a table up there. Otherwise plenty of seating and large bar area on main floor. Menu was creative and food was good. Definately a great spot to meet up with friends prior to a ball game.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and location
We had a friend from overseas come visit and we decided to try a new place in a Denver to eat at. After looking at the menu we chose Ignite. The roof top dining area was great for seeing downtown and the food and service were great
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Constructions next door :(
They have such a great upstairs patio! Their is construction next door right now, so I'd suggest eating inside.

We had a larger group (8 people)
We had a larger group (8 people) and the restaurant was very accommodating. There was plenty of room and were able to split our check perfectly (even dividing the appetizers into thirds). The food was delicious and the specialty mule drinks were unique and delicious. We sat in the covered rooftop section. At the beginning of dinner it was pretty cold and we all had our jackets on. Then they turned on the heaters, but after a while it got too hot so they turned the heaters off. Then it got cold again. It was not too drastic, but a little bit frustrating. Would be better to dine there in the summer/early fall.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food and atmosphere. They have moved to seasonal menus so I was a little disappointed that all of the sudden we couldn't order the caprese salad which was delicious last time. Also Mac and cheese was still very good but I liked the old recipe better. Still the most delicious pizza and salads and appetizers and will definitely be back!!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
It's perfect on a Monday or Friday. The bar downstairs is fun and the rooftop is very cool. We went on a Monday night and were well taken care of. Good food and good drink selection.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was great, great prices and our server was a peach. Will definently come back on my next Denver trip.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had the steak and cheese egg rolls, Thai calamari and jalapeño deviled eggs as an appetizer--very delicious. Main entree was Stuffed Pork Loin and then salted caramel cheesecake. Overall a great dining experience!!

After a day of shopping, I took my nieces and sister to Ignite as I'd been there before and liked it. They loved the man candy (sweet coated bacon), truffle fries appetizer and mac and cheese. The Moscow mules were good too.

Friendly people. Tasty food Warm techno environment

Good food to share with friends
A fun downtown scene with a little more laid back flare than some other places. Fun crowd, good service, great food and a good selection of cocktails, wine and beer. I recommend this place for a fun night out.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our friends and I wanted to try something new in the downtown area and found this restaurant through Open Table. We were so impressed by the food, the value and the service! Really worth trying, don't pass this one up!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Started out great, but....
A group of five of us made reservations at Ignite. Appetizers and dinner were good and we had good service. After dinner (at which time the restaurant was no longer crowded and we had already paid our dinner tab), we hung out trying to decide where to go next and three more friends joined us. We decided just to stay at our table at Ignite and order a round of drinks. At that point, our previously helpful and friendly waiter turned to annoyed and put out. It was as though us ordering more drinks was an inconvenience. There was a mix up on two of the drinks (my friends swear they ordered vodka tonics and the waiter rudely insisted that they ordered soda) and then he proceeded to lecture one of us on our choice of beer.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
The shortrib with mashed potatoes
The shortrib with mashed potatoes was awesome! Tender, no bone, maybe not enough meat for a big man, but perfect for a woman.
Salmon was fine, burger was good, my friend wasn't crazy about the tuna salad, but she ate it all!
Pizzas sounded amazing. Sounds like they have a good outdoor space, but it was zero degrees when we were there!
