Diner Reviews
  • "Service and ambience were great. Beef sliders were special. Everything was delicious."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "This has been our third visit to TAG, and each visit has been equally great and delightfully conducted. I highly recommend the Miso Black Cod. Easily, one of the best seafood dishes in all of Denver. Start off with the Amante Picante cocktail and then pair it right with the grilled romaine salad and seafood potstickers as appetizers."

  • "We brought our daughter here for her 21st birthday. She loves the butterfish and the toffee cake for dessert was outstanding. The waiter and the rest of the staff were outstanding. They gave her a birthday card when she arrived that they had all signed. A great place for the important birthday!"

  • "The four of us had a great time. The food and drinks were fantastic. The service was informative and friendly. We highly recommend TAG!!!"

  • "We enjoyed a selection of hors d'oeuvres that were just amazing with unique and incredible flavors.Tag adds very subtle twists to traditional favorite as we ordered the Sushi Tacos, Ahi was lightly seared, Kobe Beef Sliders with killer Duck Fat Fries dusted with brown sugar and TAG's variation of "Pigs in a Blanket" which was a smoked Pork Belly wrapped in Phyllo style dough...delicious! We couldn't stop there as we added the Matador Roll which was prepared perfectly with the perfect amount of "heat" from the jalapeños and Dynamite Aioli."

  • "My co-workers and I visited TAG to show appreciation to a business associate who happened to be a celiac. Not only did she enjoy her culinary experience but she compared the amuse bouche (what a delicious surprize), appetizers, meal, and dessert with her visit to Gordon Ramsey's restaurant in Ireland. The waitress was attentive, and the food came out quickly. The menu is unique and the drinks, even the virgin ones were phenomenal. I highly recommend this place. It's worth the prices."

  • "Loved everything about TAG. Apps and entrees were excellent, wine was top notch and priced right. Great vibe on the inside. Highly recommended. Side note: I requested a booth with my reservation and got it, which I really appreciated."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "I had a gift card and was excited to try something new, but TAG did not deliver. Perhaps the chefs are trying to create weird combinations as their 'thing' but it was not appetizing. I had the salmon in watermelon juice covered in 'pickled onion' (not sure what it was). On their own, these are great, together they were not. Staff were nice and attentive, which is expected for a $$$$ restaurant."

  • "Each time we travel through Colorado, we always plan a stop at TAG for dinner. The sushi taco appetizer is not to be missed. The last time we were there I ordered the special -- a rib eye steak and was disappointed that it was cooked medium rather than medium rare. Other than that, it was a great meal. My husband's duck was very good. We will definitely be back."

  • "We tried TAG for the first time before a concert at Pepsi Center, outstanding cocktails, especially a bourbon based Negroni that they barrel age themselves - unbelievably good. Great assortment of apps and entrees - everything we had was very good. The Taco Sushi was a fun, inventive dish, and the pork bell (Pig in Blanket) was life changing! Dinner was so good that we canceled reservations at Rioja down the street and came back the next night for dinner. We even tried some Gin and Absinthe from a distillery in Golden, Co. Try this place!"

  • "TAG is one of the best spots to dine in Denver, the atmosphere, food, service and ambience is perfect that special date."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "TAG is my husbands favorite restaurant in LODO so it was an easy choice for his birthday dinner. The service is always top notch with a wait staff that is knowledgeable and friendly. The menu is always interesting and the options are always a treat. TAG is masterful at putting foods together that really compliment each other. I had the pork roast and it was phenomenal. My husband opted for the bone-in rib eye. Mine was the clear favorite. The sticky toffee cake is something that we order every time."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "First time trying Tag downtown and loved it. Picked their specials and I was very pleased with the presentation, preparation and taste of both of them. Had their Hamachi Poke appetizer and Striped Bass special and they were both great. Service was excellent and I felt well attended to. Friendly and hip place."

  • "We had dinner there for our anniversary and it was even better then we expected. Everything from the second to the food to the atmosphere was amazing. I will definitely be coming back again."

  • "We have had consistently great food and service at TAG. Will always be a "go to" place for my wife and I when we get a night out!!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I had chicken fried noodles / rice, very different meal, portion was good enough, though I was skeptical at first. The sushi tuna taco appetizer is so good. Great ambiance, took my Daughter to celebrate her last week on her Summer Internship"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "I like the eclectic food and wines here. The staff is very, very good. The food is different but every dish I have had has been terrific. The bartenders are creative too. Pick a spirit and let them mix you something unique."

  • "Food was amazing! I always enjoy trying something new - you really can't go wrong."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "TAG never disappoints us with their food. It's solid. We love the hanger steak and the black cod. Duck fat fries are crispy and delicious (though can be a bit too sweet for me with the sugar added). However, I have to say that the "specialty" cocktails are almost always a miss. They sound good on paper, and they are inventive. But the flavor combinations just seem to miss the mark every time (for us). I'll stick to wine; they have a nice list. And the standard cocktails are great (just skip the house tonic - it's too odd flavored for a traditionalist)."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "food - good, left feeling more full than I would think given what I ate. Very rich flavors. Oddly my wife had the cod and felt ill after dinner and has vowed never to go back. service - great for me the real bummer was the 4 top booths along the wall; I was very uncomfortable because it seemed the cushions were jabbing my lumbar or kidney depending on how I sat. I couldn't lean forward to listen without being on edge or on the table, I couldn't sit all the way back without not being able to hear very well because of the liveliness. And under the table seemed very cramped. oh well."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "I had a client in from NY and I could not have made a better dining choice. Great food, fantastic service, and fun atmosphere. We had the duck, steak, and fish and they all had great flavor."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We've eaten at TAG at least 6 times in the past 18 months. Always enjoyed it, especially sitting at the chef's counter. Not so great experience Saturday night. Kitchen staff seemed out of sorts, and the food showed. Not up to the usual high standards. But the biggest kicker was the new cheap wine pours. A 3 ounce glass of wine? Seriously? If you're now doing 3 ounce pours and calling that a "glass", tell your customers. But don't charge me 25% of the price of a bottle for that glass. With so many other great restaurants in Denver, we won't be back any time soon."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "TAG feels like the chef or owner visited San Francisco and Manhattan 7 years ago and still thinks the dishes are current. Tired menu. Tired decor. Our server, Marie, was deadpan to the point of annoying. I've rarely had a server who seemed so over it. She hates working there, obviously. No reason to dine here."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "The restaurant is located in Larmier Square so it is apart of that area's vibe which is a good thing. We enjoyed an appetizer special of chicken liver pate' that was our most enjoyed dish. If you land on a day that it is being served, I highly recommend it. Our server Heather, was effiecient and pleasant. TAG is a solid restaurant I think most people that are semi-adventurous eaters would enjoy."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had a great meal at Tag. The service was great. The food drinks and desert were all very good. 19year anniversary dinner."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Tag is a favorite. We started with sushi tacos and a yum heirloom tomato burrata appetizer. The black cod was delicious - buttery and flavorful. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. He recommended a bottle of wine that we had never tried before and it was perfect with our food. Great overall experience."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The bar is small, but vibrant. The drinks are interesting and bartenders are engaging. The food was good - they are known for the tacos as an appetizer."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Prior to my last visit, TAG was my favorite restaurant. I had a co-worker come to town and we needed a restaurant for dinner and an evening to go over work items. We had great food, and our server Kristin was incredible. I would rate her a 10. Everything was fine, until we were asked to leave because a large group was coming in and they needed our table. I was completely morified by this request. We were there for about 2 1/2 hours, but we also paid a ridiculous amount for our food. We were going over work items and it was rude to be interruped, especially to be asked to leave. I will NEVER go to TAG again. I was going to plan a large event in TAG Underground this December, but that will not be happening. I will not recommend!!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Food excellent. Server steered us to great choices. Husband engaged in spirited banter with head server Chad. Everyone attentive without obtrusive. Very fun evening. Came early on a Sunday so noise not bad. Good side seat to watch and enjoy"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I loved the experience overall and the food was fantastic. Except our waitress Marie was horrible. She ignored me while I was waiting for my friend and never asked if I needed anything. I ended up waiting a good 15 minutes... I ended up ordering the pigs in a blanket but that might as well have been called fat in a thin coating. However I did love the steak and the manager introduced himself to us. He seemed very nice. The bathrooms were kind of annoying since you have to go down an elevator to get to them."

  • "My husband took me here for my birthday when we were visiting Denver. I was greeted with a bday card signed by the entire staff. Everyone was so friendly. They showed us to our table. The tables are very close together and it is loud, but a great ambience. We had some very nice couples on both sides of us, so it was enjoyable. The food was amazing. We started with the short ribs and dumplings...WOW!! My husband had the butterfish...AMAZING and I had the Miso Blackened Cod...EXCELLENT!!! The desserts did not disappoint! The tart was delicious and the toffee crunch cake was YUMMY!! Excellent choice and wonderful bday celebration!! Would DEFINITELY go back and recommend to others."

  • "We eat out a lot like New Yorkers, so here's out take: Food - well done, on par with better spots in the Denver restaurant scene. Hawaiian Fish is best imo. Halibut nicely done. Wish they had better cuts of beef than hanger steak but well prepared for a tougher cut. Appetizers and salads are good but lacking in flavor compared to their entrees. Sticky toffee pudding best of desserts. Service - attentive, seemed passionate about working at TAG which is a good sign. Kitchen service was unfortunately slow though Atmosphere - dark interior with vibrant bar scene. energetic. Overall - been here many times, will go again, but hope the kitchen staff cooking time isn't as terribly slow next time"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Overall, TAG is a great restaurant and one to try. Their Miso Black Cod is one of my favorite dishes in all of Denver -- perfectly cooked and packs lots of flavor. Service was as expected, and the overall experience was enjoyable. There were two downsides that made this restaurant a 4 star rather than 5 star. First, not every dish was prepared perfectly -- the Alaskan Halibut we also ordered was overcooked and a cocktail came to the table unfinished. Second, this is not a romantic location -- tables are a little longer than standard, which means you are that much further away from your mate, and, closely spaced to one another. As my other stated, "I'm closer to the two guys next to me [at other tables] than I am to you.""

  • "Everything about place was perfect. Took my wife for her 40th and she was so thrilled with the food and the wine recommendation. Duck, Mongchong fish, chicken, and salmon were the big flavors of the night. We will be back!"

  • "We were in Denver for a conference and went to TAG for dinner. There were 5 of us and the table was a bit tight but the food and service made the entire evening great. Our best night of the week!"
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Our first experience at Tag a few years ago was tops; it has since fallen off our radar from the poor service. The last 2 times we've dined here my dinner wine arrived at the table about 15 min. after the food was served - unacceptable. The taco sushi is really good, as is the miso cod, but the ono was hard and dry and pretty tasteless. After 2 consecutive experiences with shoddy service we will not be going back - too many other good places to eat close by. "
