    Made a rez, arrived on time... No one came to seat us... We sat down... No one brought us menus... Waited a few minutes... No one asked if we wanted drinks... So we left. Not a lot going on, but for a fairly early Wednesday night, kind of weird.

    The best Irish restaurant in Denver. My wife and I both LOVE this place and try to make a point to come back as often as possible. The first time we went I made an online reservation and in the Special Request section I asked them to leave a special love note from me to my wife and they did just that. Made my wife's night!!

    While it was just my husband and I for dinner, Katie Mullen's would be great for a large group gathering (they have a large seating area in the back for that sort of thing), business lunches, ladies' night, boys' night, and everything in-between. While I wouldn't say this restaurant isn't kid-friendly, it's not really oriented toward children either. The food is fantastic, you can find traditional Irish fare as well as American options. The lamb in the Irish Stew melts in your mouth and the Dry Rub Pork Chops are an unexpected, tasty gem. I had the Shepherd's Pie on a previous visit, and it is the best I've ever had.

    On short notice we asked to reserve a table for a dozen coworkers to celebrate an individual's career milestone - retirement. We new that there was a potential for additional coworkers to attend and the wait staff was very accomodating. Everyone's meal order arrived promptly and we were able to have a lively celebration with excellent food.

    Very busy day. (St. Patty's) but our server kept up. Samantha, I believe. She was very nice and friendly. Our table was a bit crowded because of the activities, and we should have ordered food after the band came through, but we liked the experience. I want to come back at a not so busy time and see Samantha again!!!

    I took my friend here for lunch cause she is from "over the pond" and remembered that you had mushy peas and I thought that would be a special treat for her. Well you no longer carry them but we got over it quickly and enjoyed the fish and chips and it was very good, the price was right and the service was quick enough that we were not late in returning to the office.

    We went for the 5280 Restaurant Week. We consider ourselves somewhat "foodies". Not food experts by any means, but its a matter of "we know what we like". The waitress was extremely nice, but we did get our main entree a little too quickly after our appetizers and had to try and fit everything on pretty small high table. The food was decent, but not awesome by any means. We had to double-check the actual restaurant menu to see if we were getting a "deal" or not and if the food was actually worth the money. I expected my martini to be a little fancier looking, but it just came in a regular martini glass. Maybe I was expecting too much on that, but I guess I like my drinks to look a little fancy. Overall, a nice place. May or may not be back.

I had the Lamb Kabobs - flavorful & cooked perfect, Fr Onion soup - excellent, & Shrimp Scampi app was real good as well (needs more garlic). Now I can say this place is a favorite. Thanks David (mgr) for the company and genuine concern for your business; it showed!

    First time to Katie Mullen's. It was good, but I'd like to try it again. We have 2 pretty good Irish pubs closer to where we live, so in order to be drawn back to Katie's, it would either be on occasion to be downtown, or it would have to be better than the two I live near. So, I'd like to try it again. The food was good. The service - good. I don't have anything in particular to say about it, though. We'll try it again sometime for sure.

They sat us at a spacious booth immediately!!! Service (Deanna? Diane?) was excellent. We ordered 2 apps and 4 entrees. Food ranged from so so to excellent. The place was LOUD.
