    We eat out a lot like New Yorkers, so here's out take. Row 14 new to town. Food - well balanced menu from pasta to strip steaks to fish. Strip steak was nicely cooked but was a bit of a grizzly cut for a NYstrip. Bison bolognese well done hand made pasta. Roasted brussel sprouts were the best side. Service - was great, attentive, seemed passionate. Have nice outdoor dining area. Atmosphere - darker lit, better for a quiet date. Overall - would go again for sure

    My favorite thing was the fried cauliflower! Delicious. Overall, we felt the food was good, though overpriced. my husband had the pork chop, and for either $24 or $26, it was a disappointment. The chop was barely 1/2 inch thick, and and one side, was less than that. The portion for the price was inadequate. Also, the pork chop came raw, but to their credit, a 2nd one was quickly fired for him. I had the wild mushroom and asparagus pasta, which was delicious, however, the mushrooms were few and far between. It, too, was overpriced. We loved the ambiance. We had a great table right at the doors that open to the patio, so we had the best of both worlds. It was pretty full when we left at 8:30.

    Ben was our server and made the evening fun and memorable! Knowing we had to make a show, he recommended that we only order a couple appetizers. He recommended cheeses (which were outstanding) and even brought us extra wine glasses so we could share our flight of wines! I can't wait to go there again with even more friends. And their parking is very convenient.

    Went with a small group before heading to the airport at the end of a week visiting a friend in Colorado Springs. The food was delicious. I got Duck (incredible), and we all shared the Philly Cheesesteak Emapanadas. We also ordered the chicken, steak, and scallops. Everything was wonderful, as was our server. The wine list was great, and our server was very knowledgeable of it.

    Absolutely delicious! Shared a Mahon cheese platter served with warm honey and almonds in addition to the prawn & pickled melon salad. Yum for both! For dinner I had the scallops w/ polenta cakes (cooked perfectly) and my husband had a bison bolenese--delicious & spicy. The real treat was finding an excellent wine at a relatively inexpensive price. We ordered the Owen Roe because the grape combination sounded good and because it was under $40 for the bottle. It was absolutely excellent! We loved it so much that I searched and searched for a local place to buy it the following day to no avail (but I did find a couple other wines from the same winemaker which were also excellent). I'd definitely go to Row 14 again!

    Located in downtown Denver's landmark Spire building, this friendly Wine Bar/Bistro is perfect for a quiet dinner for two or for catching up with out of town friends, as we did. The menu is limited but changes regularly to keep both the chefs and repeat customers happy. Oenophiles will enjoy Row 14 with its not over-long yet truly outstanding wine list and well educated wait staff, who will help you make the perfect selection to complement your food choices.

    I made a reservation with Row 14 to surprise my husband for his birthday! They were very accommodating of our large group (12 of us) and provided exceptional service! It was the perfect surprise and my husband loved his food (he is fairly picky). I would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occassion or just a night out!

    Went here for an anniversary dinner with our friends. Ambience is great! Love the Decor! Food was well plated and looked fun. Was very good. I had the scallops, husband had the bison bolognase and my friends had the duck and the steak. We all couldn't stop talking about how good it was!! Wine list has a bit of everything. Expensive and cheap ( which I appreciate 😜 ). Service could improve. We asked for more flatbread for our cheese plate three times before it came out. Hostess could cheer up a bit, she looked miserable. Overall good place. It was fun!

    Row 14 is very convenient for dinner before or after a show at the DCPA. The cocktail and wine selections are very good and the food is excellent. The service is friendly and efficient, though I wish it had been easier to score a second glass of wine to have with the entree - the first glass only made it through appetizer and salad courses. Overall an excellent restaurant, however.

    We dined here on a Thursday night - menu was wonderful - the mussels were the tastiest I have ever eaten - and we are from the east coast! Excellent wine list - they were out of the one we selected - but our server gave us another one that was so good that I took a snap of the label to try to find it at home. A great gem of a place that is off the beaten touristy path of 16th street in Denver. Good prices too - a truly enjoyable evening.

    Service was quick, helpful and friendly. Food was presented thoughtfully and good, although the salmon appetizer was a bit bland and halibut a touch over-cooked. While I would not generally order chicken at a restaurant like this, it was wonderful as was the couscous. Overall, enjoyable enough that I would recommend and try again.

    My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience at Row 14. The only reason the I rated the food 3 stars was because my burger was not cooked medium rare, but instead well done. However, everything else on my Row 14 burger was great. I mentioned to our awesome server that the cooks didn't know what medium rare was when he checked in on us. I almost think he was more upset about it than I was. I wasn't too heart broken about it, but when the check arrived the burger was not charged. My boyfriend tried the new pork belly tacos on the menu and loved them. The only thing he thought could be better was if they had a bit more spice to them. Overall, we had a great time w/ excellent wine & excellent service! We will stop next time we are in Colorado

    Were surprised at finding such a great place by accident. Good atmosphere with wonderful wait staff, nice selection of wines and cocktails. The Happy Hour was very good - $5 wines that were very good instead of ones you wouldn't want to drink as some places do it. There were also tasty food options on the Happy Hour menu. We went into the "dining room" area for dinner and had scallops and bison skirt steak. Delicious. A little higher priced than I want to spend too often, but similarly priced for comparable restaurants in downtown.

    The food has gone downhill. Portion sizes have shrunk while prices stayed the same; rubbery fishy muscles & Brussel sprouts went from bowl to barely a cup. And $10 for the Prawn & Melon salad that I had to peel the 2 shellfish myself leaving dead heads on the plate left the salad plate unappetizing to look at. The only thing good about our evening was the wine and our server Lauren was awesome while running the entire floor on a Thursday night. I'll only be back for the wine and Lauren's hard work.

    What a HUGE disappointment we experienced Saturday night at Row 14 Bistro & Wine Bar. After waiting well over an hour for our entree, asking our waitress for the status at least three times and finally talking to the manager who was either unwilling or incapable of finding a solution, we walked out! We arrived in plenty of time, 90 minutes prior to when we wanted to leave. The cheese plate was good, the octopus and clam appetizer a bit on the dry side, the wine delightful, but certainly the service in this restaurant was far below acceptable. While Row 14 is convenient to the Performing Arts complex, it will not be part of a future evening out for us!

I had bison sauce over pasta, my wife had salmon. Both were very good. We each had wine by the glass. The wine selection was nice and both our wines were excellent as promised by our waiter.

    I ate here recently and was very pleased. The server Richard was the best! He was very friendly, funny, and extremely knowledgeable about all the wines. I ordered the 'sparkling flights' and loved them all. We started our lunch with the delicious Philly Cheesesteak empanadas! I'd never had empanadas like this and was very happy with them. I ordered the row 14 burger, it was cooked perfectly. My sister-in-law had the short rib sandwich. This had a great flavor, but was a little dry. I still rate this as 4 stars because only one item wasn't perfect, and the service was GREAT!! I will definitely return!

    I loved the scallops with polenta cakes and a bed of kale. The flavors were wonderful and the scallops were perfectly prepared. Dessert was good but not fabulous. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. I liked that one can sit inside but with the wall of windows open to lots of fresh air and can quickly be closed when it turns cool. The wine specials before 6 pm are a great deal and my wine was perfect with my meal. I would definitely go back again. Plus their coffee was very good.

    The service at Row 14 is fantastic...however the food is mediocre at best. My boyfriend had the combo ribs - pork & bison. One was very fatty - almost to the point that it looked so bad I'm surprised anyone would even attempt to eat it. I had the scallops...which were good but the polenta cakes were dry & tasteless. Unfortunately we will not be returning. A shame really, as the location is great for the theater.
