    We received a gift card for Coohills from our daughter in Cincinnati, OH. She found Coohills from the Gabby Gourmet recommendation. We did not realize they had only been in business a few months and we were pleasantly surprised that they had their act totally together for a new restaurant. The food was wonderful, the service was great and we received just the perfect amount of attention from the wait staff.

    I love seasonal menus, but the staff was not fully informed of the winter dishes and made ordering somewhat difficult. The food itself was amazing, but the salmon atop the ravioli (winter menu) was "average" for the individual who ordered it. The lamb porterhouse was amazing, and the salads were fantastic.

    We arrived as a party of 8 people but ahead of schedule (about 20 minutes early). Though our table was ready for us, the hostess tried to steer us over to the crowded bar. That made no sense - so I asked if we could be seated at our table. She agreed (but why not put us there anyway?!) The wine list is decent though not all of the wines were chilled and ready to serve, so we opted for a 2nd choice. The short ribs were delicious, as was the brussel sprouts w/ duck and the cauliflower grits. Less appealing was the salmon, which was dry & oversalted. The salmon was served with "ravioli" but to be fair, the menu should read "raviolo" because there was only ONE! A bit disppointing, will not rush back.

    This restaurant is fabulous and has it all figured out: a great and varied menu, some small plates and a great location. It is wonderful to find such a great place. All 4 of us are foodies and we all agreed that we will return to this restaurant. (I already have a lunch reservation for February and had my birthday lunch at Coohills in December.)

    Dined on 1/8/2012
    The best thing about Coohills is location. If you are going to the Pepsi Center for an event, park in the garage for only $5 and walk over to the Center. Sit and have dinner while traffic dissipates. The food and atmosphere were only mediocre. The crab "flan" appetizer was really a crabcake, not a flan. I ordered a medium rare Wagyu steak,and it came rare and very chewy. My niece ordered the chicken, which was served with a strange "tortilla mashed potatoes", which was soggy strips of tortillas mixed into the mash. My husband liked his Barrimundi special. Atmosphere was very conservative, and prices too high for an after Pepsi event affair. Service was slow, we were not there for fine dining, just a place to eat before heading ho

    This was our second trip to Coohills. We live a block away, so are thrilled that we can walk to this great neighborhood/LoDo restaurant. The service was terrific. When we chose a wine for dinner, the sommelier returned to inform us that they had sold the last bottle of that wine earlier that day. He offered an alternative that was better than the one we had chosen and offered it to us at the price of our original choice. Great way to win us over! The food was delish and the staff was a pleasure, every one of them. We'll be back.

    We brought in the new year dining at Coohills! Coohills' staff welcomed us with party favors, a complimentary glass of champagne and great cheer. Our meals were exquisite, and we enjoyed a starter, salads, entrees and a desert. My duck l'orange with brussel sprouts had such rich and fragrant flavors that I lingered over it and savored every bite wishing it would never end! Our trio desert that we shared featured three sweet treats and was the perfect finish. It's amazing presentation was worthy of a photograph! Our server recommended the perfect bottle of champagne, and the various courses were perfectly presented and served by Coohills' incredibly attentive, skilled and professional staff. Coohills was a great place to start 2012!

    Dined on 12/30/2011
    The atmosphere and wait staff were excellent, but the food left a lot to be desired. The waitress said the strip steak was so tender, it would fall apart if ordered over medium. however, when it arrived, I could barely cut it with my knife. The portion sizes were incredibly small and the quality was mediocre at best. Even the temperature of the food was tepid. While the waitstaff helped make this a much more pleasant experience, we won't go back.

    Great food, wonderful service and atmosphere. Many downtown/Bolder restaurants feel so clausterphobic, but this was spacious and modern. Portion sizes were small, so an appetizer/side is a good idea. We had the mint cake and enjoyed it - it was nice to have something new! We walked over to the Nuggets game after (where we had parked already) - very convenient. Highly recommended!

    Foodie friends had told us this was one of the best restaurants they"d been to in a long time. We found the food only so-so, however. One disappointment, for example, was the arugula, frisée, pear, walnut, blue cheese salad -- made with lots of flavorless, unripe pear slices. Also, the bread arrived at least 5 minutes after the cheese platter and roasted artichoke appetizer. And the lobster ravioli was drowned out in too much heavy cream sauce. Give me Potager, Mizuna, or Osteria Marco any day. (Love the location, though. And the space is great. )

My husband had the steak as he did the first time we were there but this last time the meat was quite tough sadly. I had buckwheat pasta with wild mushrooms but I thought there was too much pasta proportionate to the mushrooms. The pasta was too overwhelming so disappointing choice.

    Not a great experience. For starters, we were seated at a very small table for two right in the middle of the restaurant that lacked napkins and cutlery. We asked twice for cutlery and finally received some after getting our appetizer and the waitress noticed we hadn't touched it yet. Our first choice of wine, which the "wine guy" raved about, turned out to be unavailable. Both bread and appetizer were served on wooden planks that were too large for our small table. At one point, our waitress actually attempted to move our bottle of wine to the floor to make room! My husband's short ribs were fine. My barramundi was a tail end and overcooked. The pear tart was burned on the bottom and sides and taken off our bill. Service felt chaotic.

    Service was very marginal and the food not worth the cost. I was shocked that the parking was not validated. We were seated in the bar for some odd reason and I believe that the server was pre-occupied with other task. Once the salad course was completed I was left without silver ware. The main course arrived and still no silver ware to found. After a frustrating while looking around for staff I went on a search to find something to eat with. Also, do not expect to have bottled mineral water. Possibly could be a good place for drinks if one were sitting directly at the bar in front of the bartender. Hillstone it is not.

    The service at this restaurant was too good. They were too attentive. I was so aware of being watched ............... by the waiter and the managers. I felt like I was being watched by the mafia! They kept trying to take my wine glass when there was a touch of wine left (at 22.00 a glass I want the last drop!), and they kept trying to take our food and serving plates when we weren't done. I don't know if it was the waiter or the managers pushing the waiter, but it was too much and enough that I might now go back. They have only been open too weeks so maybe they are sorting it out, but I would say back off!! Or, at least become more subtle. There is such a thing as too much attention.
