    My wife and I went to Satchel's for the first time in August 2014 for Restaurant Week, and it is easily our new favorite spot. Very small and intimate, and shockingly empty for Restaurant Week. That gave us pause at first, but the food and service were truly phenomenal. Drinks were great, too. I had the pork chop with peaches and some of the best green beans I've ever hard. She had the beet spaghetti. Both excellent. Service was a perfect balance of attentiveness without being overbearing, and our water glasses were never empty. Overall, really a great place. We will definitely be back, and it's the new go-to when family and friends are in town.

    My husband tried Satchels for a late dinner on a Thurs night. We were treated to handmade cocktails tailored for our personal taste to accompany each of our excellent dishes. Service was outstanding and we had time to personally chat with staff. Very low key and not pretentious. Would definitely recommend for adults looking for great food and a chance to connect.

    This is a great restaurant, but the automated reservation system allowed me to make a reservation, and confirmed it, for a time when the restaurant was closed. My party arrived at noon on Sunday to a closed restaurant. The restaurant needs to coordinate with its online reservation system.

    We had a reservation but the restaurant was full. Waited at bar and then asked if we wanted to sit out back. Out back was a single table by the door to the kitchen...was okay as we wanted to talk and eat. I don't think it was anywhere anyone normally sits...I wouldn't sit there again. I realize it's hard to predict when people will leave so next reservation can be honored, but this was, well, a little strange. I will go back as the food was good, but would not want to be put out back again.

    After two visits, I view this restaurant much as I view Plimoth, only quieter. From its seasonal menu, we shared the heirloom tomato salad and the fried green tomato appetizers; both were amazing. Then to scallops over risotto (studded with just the right number of seasonal vegetables cooked al dente) and the steak with its picant chimichurri sauce. We finished with peach galette, with a marscapone crust, topped with Sweet Action's butterscotch ice cream: not too sweet, but everything perfectly balanced between crust, peach and ice cream. This is what I long for in a restaurant; attentive, not intrusive service, a noise level that does not inhibit conversation, generous portions and beautifully prepared food with some uniqueness.

    I've eaten at a Satchel's many times... good simple food, nice people, walking distance local spot. Two complaints - cocktails are really pricey, ice packed and small for what you get; wine and beer better priced. Last two times I've been it's been unbearably loud. Not sure what's happened but it doesn't feel so neighborhood gem like anymore. It was a Weds night and not late.

    Disappointing. Food was bland and overpriced--we ordered figs, heirloom salad, and hamburger. No flavor. Restaurant was so dark my friend had to use her phone flashlight to see menu. Music was so loud we could barely hear each other. This is our second time here, will never come back.

    Satchels is a bar with table on 2 sides. The food is very good; however, pricing is equal to Denver's best restaurants, but the food is not equal to that high standard. We had a duck breast that was excellent in every way. A salmon cooked in parchment was a valiant attempt to do something creative that failed. A $13 salad was OK but not equal to the price. Because we are 5 minutes away from the restaurant and there is ample parking we will try again.

    We loved our food and the service was exceptional. Different members of the staff stopped to see how our dinner was. Thoughtful but unobtrusive service. Our only complaint is that the music was a little too loud. It made talking harder than it should be at dinner. After all, while it's mostly a neighborhood spot, it's less of a bar and more of a really nice restaurant. Turn down the tunes just a little please.

    As a friend put it "Satchel's on 6th is magic food". The space is reminiscent of New York favorites due to the fact that its quant with exposed brick and a mix of new and vintage decor. The wine and cocktail selection are small, but you will find several things to adore. The food is truly magic in every bite, and I haven't had a dish I didn't love.

    We live within walking distance of Satchel's and have now been there about 5 times. We've never been disappointed. On Friday night everyone in our party of five ordered one small plate and a main dish. For small plates,we had mussels, lobster sliders and a cheese and meat plate. The mussels stood out. They were some of the tenderest I've had, and the broth was flavorful and delicately seasoned. I want to mention our server, who was excellent. We were in a talkative mood, and wanted to take our time ordering, and he gave us the space we needed without ever pressuring us. He recommended the salmon and duck to two members of our party who asked about main dishes, and both were very good. Another fine evening at a "neighborhood gem."

    Feels like a fantastic chef is cooking just for you and your friends. Tailored menu where everything sounds delectable. We were greeted with the smell of smoked meat and the literally fresh out-of-the-smoker pork chop did not disappoint. It was tender, flavorful, outstanding. The duck breast also was delicious along with duck fat fries. Little disappointed by the duck confit (too salty, bit dry) and spring risotto was okay. But the excellence of the rest of the meal more than made up for it.

    We went there having never heard of it though we are the snooty foodie types. The place was small and quiet with a turntable playing cool records (loved that). Service was pretty good, the guy was working the bar and the floor so they could have used another person. Food was unique and delicious. Burrata salad was excellent, sea bass was good though the portion a tad on the small side. The vegetarian entree was quite good also. Did not have nay drinks of wine but the menu seemed to have a few artisan cocktails that looked interesting. We will be back.

    We were looking for a good basic neighborhood joint, and this is it. Food we tried was good - not great - but certainly fine for the price and within our expectations. Paella was a little underseasoned, and not true paella - no rice crust on the bottom, not cooked in a paella pan; but it was certainly still tasty. Next time I might stick with something simpler, like a burger. Wine and beer list was strong, and wine pours were also generous. Excellent customer service and very nice ambiance. I am sure we will be back.

    First time to visit Satchel's; may be the last.... Food was great, our server was extremely pleasant and efficient. I'm sure you wonder why we might not return? Well, on the other side of the restaurant there was a family, they had some connection to the owner/chef/other employees, don't exactly know, but they were LOUD with children who had the runof the place. Made for a noisy and unpleasant atmosphere. We were in and out in 45 minutes; didn't want to linger over a bottomless mimosa or coffee. Just sucked. Management needs to deal with THEIR noise issues.

    Satchel's is a great neighborhood place. We enjoyed sharing the small plates (although I wish I'd ordered the lamb sliders-which I've had before and which are terrific) instead of the lobster sliders (just OK). Duck fat fries- yes! The noise level does prevent much conversation.
