    The food was excellent and the waiter was very knowledgeable of the entire menu and how it is prepared. He also had a very good knowledge of the wine list. He was also very friendly and presented us with a bottle of champagne (called in and paid for by our daughter) with quite pomp for our anniversary. Very enjoyable atmosphere all night. Well done!

    We had HH drinks and appetizers at the bar. Then my fun little group were seated in a corner between the buildings. The service was very good at the dinner table not so great in the bar area. The only food item I thought was bland was the breaded tempura. The calamari was good and the scallops were very tasty. The interior looks lovely since it was redone. They took the second floor out and the high ceiling is so nice. I will go back happily.

    While the restaurant is noisy, this minor nuisance is more than overcome by the fabulous food, which is beautifully presented and, most of all, by our server Amy. She was, without question, the finest server we have ever had the great pleasure of meeting. Amy was gracious, well informed, fun and genuine. Her enthusiasm for Humboldt's, for the food she was serving, and for us, was a total delight.

    From the friendly valet to the hostesses to the bartender to the sevee al waitstaff who supported our waiter, this was one of the most pleasant and professioal dining experiences we have had in years. That the food was delicious and fresh plus priced right was just the icing on the chocolate cake. We will be regulars. A nice succesor to Strings.

    I was a devoted Strings diner for more than 20 years. Loved the place. So I was both curious and hesitant to try its replacement. I expected the space to be completely altered with no trace of what it once was. To my great delight, the space was updated and refreshed but it's still familiar and comfortable. That's exactly what I needed as a customer. The menu is fresh and appealing. The Lump Crab and Avocado Sslad was delicious. The service was outstanding - attentive but not over-bearing and everyone was smiling. Someone trained them well. I'm so happy to visit that familiar space and feel welcomed - while enjoying all the fresh new and delicious things Humboldt Farm Fish Wine has to offer.

    Fish is a specialty for this new restaurant. Our party tried calamari, haddock, ono, and oysters and found them all delicious, perfectly prepared. The two steak aficionados were happy with their choices too. We were in time for drinks during happy hour, a good deal, and the restaurant was quiet. When we left, it was packed and the noise level was high. The service felt oddly timed: when we first arrived, it took 10 minutes to get a waiter, and 20 before drinks came. Then main dishes showed up before we'd finished appetizers, and two of the main dishes arrived several minutes ahead of the other two. The food was good enough that I'd go back, but not during peak weekend hours: I like hearing what the person across the table is saying.

    High quality food at a reasonable price that is perfectly prepared. I had the steak burger, which was terrific. They forgot to add the crispy onions, but the waitress brought some when I asked about them. I couldn't decide between a number of side dishes and the waitress recommended the brussel sprouts - great choice. They were amazing. I also appreciated the fact that they were subbed for fries, at no additional charge. My friend had the chicken sandwich and fries - both were very good. For dessert we shared the molten chocolate cake - it was a bit too sweet for me, but my friend loved it. The salted caramel gelato that came with the cake was to die for!

    We like fish, there were many fresh selections at lunch recently, and you get to pick your fish, pick the sauce and pick the accompanying veggie. Everything was so good and the service was excellent. Don't usually get dessert but it was a birthday. Their dessert menu was short but had every one of my favorites: Key Lime Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Creme Brûlée, Molten Chocolate Cake. Best coffee EVER! Pricey but worth it. It was marketing genius to call it Humboldt's. We could never remember the cross street this restaurant was on with 17th Avenue. Now we will always remember...it's on Humboldt!

    The oysters were first rate - the seafood was good although there were bits of shell in the crab salad. The support staff working with waiter needed tightening up ( dessert ware being picked up before dessert arrives...) The crème burlee was runny and the key lime pie did not seem to have any key lime. I will return in a few weeks to see what progress is made. I have high hopes for this place!

    Four of us ate a Humboldt Sunday evening. Everything was top notch. The wine list has nice choices and reasonable prices. We started with stacked garlic bread, crispy broccoli and baked oysters. The starters were wonderful, and the crispy broccoli is unique and delicious. We tried the beet and arugula salad, the fork and knife caesar and clam chowder. The chowder was as good as we've had on the coasts, and plentiful. We had swordfish, black cod and the steak and fries for entrees. Everyone was extremely pleased with their entree choice, and we shared bites and everything was delicious. Humboldt is a great replacement for Strings. It's great to have a new place in the neighborhood.

    We dined outside for brunch on Sunday in November--- gotta love Colorado. We had a very nice waiter, Ryan. My friend and I both had the same meal: eggs benedict and Bloody Marys. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the plate came to the table hot, not cold like happens a lot at many restaurants. We lingered and talked and talked, but it was such a beautiful day and we felt so welcome and relaxed. It was hard to leave! Very nice what they have done with the former Strings space. We will be back again soon!

    Happy hour pricing is insanely good! We dined early on a Saturday. Starting with a drink on the paio, we moved to a nice table inside for our meal. The trout dip and fried broccoli were delicious starts. I ate the halibut special and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. We left and ended up returning that same night for dessert. It was quite good as well. Will definitely return.

    Almost everyone in our party of four loved everything from their wine, appetizers, entrees to dessert and espresso (one exception was the lobster risotto which was too rich - but I think you take that risk whenever ordering risotto). The crispy broccoli and roasted brussel sprouts will convert any veggie hater. Service was great in that we at never point felt rushed, our server was knowledgable and honest, and the bussers were attentive. Can't wait to introduce other friends to their new fave restaurant in town!

    From the moment i walked in the front door to the moment i left, the service was amazing. Very attentive, very knowledgeable, great pairing suggestions, every server and hostess i saw was smiling! The food was excellent, great choices of ingredients for the dishes! The wine selection was great,wines from all over the world,different years,both by the glass and by the bottle. The desserts were delicious! The prices were a bit much for the "non fresh daily" meals that are always on the menu everyday. I would suggest adding a weekly, or even daily, special dessert. With "Wine" being part of the name, that calls out "DESSERT" for those late night dinner/dessert goers and a special dessert being offered would be a great push for wine partakers.

    First I took my boyfriend here for dinner on his birthday because he loves oysters. They were great, but so was the black cod and the salmon; simple and perfectly done. The desserts were fabulous. I went back with colleagues twice since then. I had salmon again, once as part of an autumn salad - so delicious. Both of them had the burger and fries and said they were perfectly done. This place is not inexpensive, but very reason Lu priced for the quality. We'll be back!

    Excellent choices of American food, with options for smaller plates or full dinners. There were six of us and we tried everything from the natural chicken on a bed of mushroom risotto, to a bolognese special, to their Humboldt burger with a beef/bacon blend and Tillamook cheddar that was outstanding. Everyone raved about their meal. Love the interior changes. Very modern but comfortable. The wait staff (and everyone we came into contact with, from the valet to the hostess to the manager) was very friendly. Made you feel really welcomed. Our group eats out often, but this was the first time we had been to Humboldt. Won't be the last--for sure! I didn't comment on a "notable wine list" only because I didn't see that menu.

    I often make my open table reservations based on prior reviews of a restaurant, but no reviews had yet been posted for Humboldt Farm Fish Wine. What an amazing find! Our server, Kim, was very attentive, gave great recommendations, and was incredibly patient. I was catching up with my cousin and we way overstayed our welcome - but she never made us feel that way and it was greatly appreciated. The food was phenomenal. We ordered their Crispy Broccoli, which was fantastic, and I then had the scallops - delicious! I'm not a professional foodie so can't provide the intricate reviews that would be expected of them, but the service was fantastic, food delicious, and I will definitely be back!

    Having been long-time fans of Strings, we were looking forward to the restaurant that was taking over that gem of a space. We were not disappointed. The new decor is lovely and we especially like the new high ceilings. Brandon, our server, was knowledgable, personable, and attentive to our needs. And most importantly, the food was excellent. The fish was perfectly prepared, according to our specifications, and the accompanying sauces enhanced the delicate flavor. Our two vegetable sides, squash with kale and a mildly spicy brussels sprouts dish, were absolutely delicious. Our dessert, a coconut key lime pie, was decadently yummy. We look forward to many more evenings of perfect dining!

    Our first visit will not have been our only! We will be back for more - soon. The swordfish special was perfect. Unfortunately, the 2 orders of yellowtail snapper at the table weren't great. But ..... the server picked up on our dissatisfaction immediately after we started in on the entrees, and strongly urged us to let him get us something else. We demurred, but then the manager very quietly approached our table and again offered to replace them. He said it was so important that we were happy with everything. We said, ok, we'd like to switch to the swordfish. Wow. It came so fast, hot and delicious. Now this is a restaurant in the best sense of the word. We feel very taken care of.
