    Food was excellent with a reasonably attendent waiter. Went for Boulder First Bite and were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant let diners know about the special deal. Choices were excellent and made the whole party enjoy the experience even more.

    Hi--A nice meal, but the service was a little less than attentive. We felt like the server had little experience and did not know how to gauge when it was appropriate to interrupt a table conversation or not. We ended up waiting long periods of time to order, to get our wine or drink orders, to hear specials etc ..... Likewise, the manager (or sommelier) stopped by our table but did not introduce himself or ask about our meal. Just made a comment about our wine selection.

    The service was very slow and the kitchen seemed to be asleep. We waited almost an hour for salads to be served. The food was excellent but on a Monday night, it seemed as if they didn't want to let their customers go. It took over two hours for dinner, which seems excessive to me.

    The food was most excellent, matched only by the sterling service we received. It was my wife's birthday and she was amazed at the quality of the food. Our server was top notch and they even had little happy birthday sprinkles and a complementary glass of champagne for us. We will definitely be back for dinner on our next trip to Colorado.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 6/1/2008
    Always very good to excellent, from appetizers to dessert, and not too expensive for what you get. Three courses for $35 at dinner can be a great deal, given some of the choices and the high quality of everything. The three-course tasting menu for $15 at lunch is a true bargain, and consistently interesting and excellent. The wine list is extensive, and you can order half-glasses at half-price, so a custom flight is easily available. Of four wines I tried, the Taz 2004 Pinot Noir was outstanding. So is their specialty cocktail, Q's Cooler. My only complaint would be wait-service that is not as polished or attentive to detail as the cuisine itself. Q's would be a four-star restaurant with a more seasoned wait-staff (compare Frasca).

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 4/27/2008
    My husband and I and our friends have eaten brunch at Q's several times over the past few years. We have always enjoyed the experience, but this last time there was a change. Very poor service: an overburdened, inexperienced wait person had to be reminded several times to bring the things we ordered. The appetizer did not come first, it came with the brunch entrees. For the most part the food was still very good, though there seemed to be an ingredient missing from the omelette of the day. The jam jars on every table we could see were almost empty. Ours had very little jam to begin with and when we asked for more the bus person just took another almost empty jar off a neighboring table. Q's is slipping; share this review with them.

    I found it a bit pricey for the type of food they serve. It also seemed that the prices on the menu didn't match with our bill. Deserts were execellent.

    Most of the staff is young and could be local college students. As such, service seems to have varied in the past but on 3/23/98 the service was very good and personable. Food was very good.

    Everything about Qs was perfect.....-every course met our greatest expectations! Simply loved the desserts....especially the olive oil cake! We ate here during Denver Restaurant week, a time when some restaurants seem to underwhelm on their menu selections. This was definitely not the case at Qs. It was EXCELLENT!
