    Second time here and the food was just as delicious as the first time. That is what brought me back. Happy hour had great deals. Service is slow but you get food made for you fresh out of the kitchen. Well worth the wait!!

    The patio and the food were great. There is nowhere better then a good food find with a patio to really round out a good night. The service is really slow so this is not a place to get in and out fast but if you have time to wait the food and knowledge of the staff is worth it.

    Lovely little gem near the Civic Center. The Polish plate was a generous combination of stuffed cabbage, Kielbasa, and pierogis, all delicious. We sat outside amid the flowers.

    Having never had Polish food before, we went in with a Travelzoo voucher and an open mind. Our server was a young, Chicago born, Polish girl. Lovely, energetic, knowledgeable. Food was delicious. Best experience we've had a long time - loved how different the tastes were!

    we got our marriage license at the courthouse and stumbled on this authentic Central European gem. Polish food--who knew? The server, Katarina, was sweet; the food was delectable, not dense or overly starchy. We decided to return on our wedding day with our party of eight. Everybody shared our high regard for this delightful place. Go for the "Taste of Belvedere" if you can't decide what to have. Golabki, pierogi, kielbasa, schnitzel...and more. The rabbit in sour cream and the hunter's stew are great as well. Nastrovia!

    Went with friends and family for happy hour then dinner. Upon arrival there was only one table occupied. Waitress came a greeted us. Ordered some beers and inquired about items on the menu. She was very nice. But then left and stood at the end of the bar for a long time. Had to go over and inquire about the beers and say we would like to order appetizers. Had to go get waitress 2 more times to order more appetizers and say we were ready to order dinner. Perogies good, stuffed cabbage okay but duck was still frozen in center. Once again got waitress, she felt the center and did take off the check. Waitresses nice, but like to hang at end of bar for L O N G periods of time. Would go back for perigees, would not go back for dinner.

    This downtown gem give us the opportunity to experience old world charm, ambience and food without leaving Denver. Our favorite soup is Beef Stroganoff Soup. The choice then becomes between an appetizer or an entree. All are cooked to order. Save room for the apple pie or apple crumble. If you can't go to Warsaw, try The Belvedere, you'll like it!

    This was our first time eating at the Belvedere since it replaced the Berlin Cafe. Mike and I stopped by for a late lunch and was thrilled to recognize Katarina - our waitress from Kinga's lounge! Since we really enjoyed the food at Kinga's Lounge, I ordered the perogies again. Mike had the pork sandwich and really loved it. The only remark he had was the cool beer (not frosty cold) served very much like Europe. I remarked about the unique menu covers and Katarina explained how the mother of the owner handmade them. Charming restaurant, great service and fabulous outdoor patio! We will be frequenting Belvedere more often since its closer to our office. Thanks!

    Second time in and everything was as amazing as it was the first time! We tried other Polish restaurants in between our visits, and each time we compared the food to Belvedere, but nowhere else was as good! In fact, this place is so good that it has become our standard to compare all other restaurants to (not just food wise, but service, atmosphere, etc.)! Service was awesome, again, prices are very reasonable for the amount you get, and the food is delicious! We highly recommend the Taste of Belvedere (appetizer) so that you can try a little bit of everything they offer, and of course a beer to go along with it!

    We found the Belvedere on New Years' Eve, when we wanted to be near the mall but didn't want to pay steak-house prices. Our group of 4 was thrilled with the food and the old-world ambience. Prices are reasonable, the wait-staff is friendly and has been the same every time we visited. The food is really delicious and filling. The Taste of the Belvedere platter is great for 2 people who want to try some of everything. My husband was in heaven with his crepe dessert.

    We loved the look of the restaurant when we arrived. This was the best part of our experience. The bartender was the waiter and server as well. The drinks were small and took forever to get. The appetizers were very good. But the entrees were very disappointing. Two of us had the Chicken and it was dry and the cheese and ham were mostly absent. The Schnitzel was better, but not great . We were looking towards a nice unusual dinner. What we got was a nice place with really slow service and food that did not live up to other reviews. It's too bad really.

    This was just a great experience. You feel like you are walking into a warm comfy house where your family is cooking food for you, and the plus is that it's good food too! The pierogie's were delicious and filling! My family and I went for the first time and it was fabulous! Everything we ate was tasty. Think twice about the possibilities of potatoes and cabbage, because they are endless and full of flavor! I will be going again!

    Was the food good? Yes, very tasty pierogi and potato cakes. Were the drinks good? Yes. The traditional Polish apple drink was very refreshing, unique, and tasty. However...with all of that...our server, Carolina, really made the experience exceptional. By far one of the best waitresses we have EVER had!!!

    Went to restaurant on Sunday evening. One waitress was running the entire operation. We were told Sunday is a slow night. The Waitress was very good and attentive. Ambiance was OK definitely reminded me of our travels in Eastern Europe. Because it was slow it was very quite a little uncomfortable. Food was OK, Not great not Bad. Desert was very good expect the filo dough exterior was very tough had been sitting in the refrigerator for a few days . Cost of meal was very fair.

    My husband and I were looking for some place new to go for dinner. The Belvedere came up with 4 stars and great comments. We've had German food before so thought, why not Polish food! To our surprise, the location used to house Cafe Berlin! The service was awesome. She took the time to answer our questions and make recommendations. The perogies were delicious and the Polish vodka was ever so smooth! We highly recommend it and will no doubt return.

    We loved the ambience and the fact that it was quiet! We came for some good old-fashioned Polish cuisine, and weren't disappointed. The pierogies were as good as my mother's and the latkes were delicious! We also had an excellent Bulgarian red wine. I especially liked the layout of the Belvedere--areas sectioned off to give the feel of being in someone's home. Overall, a most enjoyable experience. I'll certainly return the next time I'm in Denver!

    The Belvedere is a small, cozy place, lots of charm and romance, and for our party of 5 we were escorted onto the balcony overlooking the main seating area of the restaurant. It was great to have a semi-private space, but it was located on the path to the bathrooms, so not quite as private as would have been desirable. Food was excellent, and staff was attentive but did not hover. Portions were hearty - we ended up taking home a fair amount of the sampler. The pierogi were well done and tasty. Would not hesitate to return, just for dinner and to explore more of the items on the menu. Our birthday boy is adventurous and chose the dill pickle soup - it was DELICIOUS!
