    We hadn't been to the Grill in a few years. Overall things looked the same but the experience wasn't. The staff seemed to be trying to turn the table over in record time. We tried to pace our ordering a bit as we had the whole night free. Drinks, app, dinner. We still got pushed out within half an hour. It felt very rushed. Mix that with over prices food, which we don't mind I'm a nice restaurant with good atmosphere, and it was very disappointing. Very expensive half an hour meal. We won't be back and have already let others know about the experience. We aren't big drinkers so perhaps we weren't worth the Grill's time.

    We came here from Georgia and we know BBQ. This is not the kind of place I thought I would find authentic South Carolina sauce and ribs done to perfection, but they nailed it!! Cornbread is mouth watering and the service was prompt and friendly. I think the message was sent about the greeters because we have been there on a few occasions and never have had an issue. Crowd is friendly, bartenders are chill great place for a dinner and a nice walk in the Cherry Creek area.

  • Where is the salad?
    JimL
    Dined on 12/28/2013
    When ordering both my wife and I ordered a main item and a large salad to split. Our food order came on a very timely basis, but the salad did not show up. The waitress showed up after we had eaten our main item. I asked where the salad was. She said she was sorry that it was missed, and wanted to know if we still wanted it. I'm not used to eating my salad last so declined to get it at that point. The food was very good but the particular waitress was not very attentive to her customer. They did deduct the cost of my wife's dinner to compensate.

    Great, no, wonderful food. It will never leave you disappointed, however if you make a reservation on a tight schedule (during a busy time of year) expect to wait at least 10 minutes. An annoyance for some (in particular the party that I was with the day we dined) but not a deal breaker to not return in the future.

    I have been dining at this establishment since it started as Bandera over a decade ago. One cannot complain, a menu with comfort food coupled with some unique surprises. The Macho Salad, a favorite, the wood-burning oven still chruns out entree's with a unique infusion of smokiness. The seating always comfortable, the dining room energetic and staff casual yet professional. While I appreciate Hillstone nee Houstons at 3rd and Josephine, Cherry Creek Grill is still my "go-to" when I want to enjoy what has become a neighborhood institution for upscale casual dining. Be sure to make reservations as walk-in's on a busy night can wait for a bit even with quick turnover.

    I made a reservation for 8 PM on a Saturday night, when we arrived 5 minutes before our reservation we were told that they were running a bit late but our table would be ready in 10 minutes. As we were waiting the hostess told us we were next on the list but we did not end up being seated until 8:30. The manager showed us to our table and apologized for the wait and informed us that our meal was on the house! It was such a surprise and we ended up having a great meal with exceptional service.

    The food here is always yummy (I especially love the grilled artichokes), though it's best to get there early or make a reservation because I'm not sure it's worth waiting 40 minutes for (honestly, I can think of few meals in Denver that are). However, on this last visit, I found the service to be intrusive rather than attentive. Our waitress would stroll up repeatedly and interrupt obvious conversation to ask if we were ready to order, if everything tasted okay, and whether we cared for more iced tea. Attentiveness I appreciate; attentiveness on steroids is just annoying. Still, it's a lovely spot (handsome room, dark woods, all booths), and it's hard to go wrong with the Macho Salad.

    don't take reservations if you can't honor them within a reasonable timeframe. we used to expect to wait 45 minutes for a table-- we do NOT expect that when we have made a reservation. and, once we are finally seated and ready to eat, it would be great not to be rushed through the meal (bringing out entrees before we are half way through the appetizer, trying to take plates before people are finished, etc.).

    We asked for a larger table on Open Table Reservation, but they gave us a mini-table. Means they did not read the details. BUT, but everything else was excellent. Wine by the glass can be expensive ($14) if you do not stick with the house wine. Food was done perfectly and presentation was superb. Service and friendliness of staff was fun. Atmosphere was eclectic. We would have had to wait one hour if we had not made a reservation for 5:45 PM on Saturday night.

    Everything we had (group of four) was excellent. I had the ribs, which was outstanding. The service was superb. Left us alone when we wanted to talk, but there when we wanted service. Not a big wine selection, but good choices available at fair prices. Major downside is the noise level was so high we had trouble hearing each other.

    As usual we had a nice meal at Cherry Creek Grill, but our server Chelsea was annoying. We arrived first and she continued to ask if we wanted to order something. We informed her several times that we were waiting for another couple and didn't want to order food until they arrived. We ordered a bottle of wine! Once our guests joined us she was immediately on everybody to make a decision about what they wanted for dinner. We have had Chelsea before and, while I understand they need to turn tables, they don't need to treat people like cattle. If you don't want us to enjoy our dining experience, there are plenty of other restaurants in the Creek that do. If we are put in Chelseas section again, we will ask to be moved!!

    My wife and I met a client at the Cherry Creek Grill before a sporting event. Unsure of the client's expectations I was a little nervous; well we could not have been more pleased. The decor was classy, the service was well done, and the food was excellent. Our waitress answered all of our questions about the menu with a smile. When she found out it was our first time in the facility she even brought us an appitizer on the house (what a nice gesture). The restuarnt was in a word, refinded (but not stuffy by any means). We can't wait to go back!

    I give this low overall rating because of the hostesses only. The food is incredible and so are the servers, so if you have more patience than me, eat here. But we walked in at 7pm for dinner and were told 45 minutes. After checking in over and over to be told again and again, we'd be next, we were finally seated after 9pm! This is no one's fault except the hostesses who clearly don't know table turnaround time to give a realistic wait time.

    We love the food and the ambiance of the CC Grill but I have to wonder if they no longer need my business. We went for a birthday celebration with 6 people-- not what I considered a huge group. Made the reservation on Open Table and it wouldn't allow a party of 6. Called and found out it's because they "only have a few tables that accommodate 6, so they don't like to hold them." What? Wouldn't that be MORE of a reason to hold them? Woman made a "note in the book" that we needed a 6-top. Got there & they had us nowhere for 4 or for 6. Got sat at a booth normally for 4 which actually fit us fine but the waitress told us we couldn't sit there with 6 people and ran off to get a manager. All in all, it felt like they're too busy to bother.

    From the artichoke apps, to all the entrees we had, everything was excellent. Natasha who answered the phone when I called to make the reservation for us was incredibly hospitable and really set the tone for a great evening. We had Taylor as our server and she did a great job keeping up with the tables needs. I had the salmon and would order it again for sure, the rotisserie chicken and the ribs that were at our table too looked great

    I eat lunch at Cherry Creek Grill one or twice a week with clients. I am very happy that I will not be able to make reservations through Open Table. The macho salad is exceptional as is the corn bread and lamb sandwich. I guess I could run down the menu (which I know by heart!) and rave about every item. Have never had a bad meal and love the staff as well. My only complaint is that it is a bit pricey, but we're in Cherry Creek, so I guess that's to be expected.
