    Food was amazing, very authentic. Waitreces seem legitamate polish if they are not. The vodka was amazing, didnt even taste like vodka. We had the raspberry lemonade and made us believe we were on a beach drinking a frshly sqeezed ice cold raspberry lemonade. Just amazing. We will be back.

    Everything was delicious. If you're not sure what to order or just can't choose the "Taste of Belvedere" is the way to good. It's a meal for two... or even three! The Zurek polski - white borscht Soup and Beef Stroganoff soup were great as well!

    I like the food here! It is wonderfully authentic. I like the ambiance. I took friends. Sad to say it was 20 minutes before we got drink requests and then we hurried to get our food order in, fearing we may never get the chance. Great that the servers were ethnic, not so great that they really haven't learned the American service ethic.

    It's a little gem for sure. If you are looking for something different from whatever is 'typical', this is the place. It's speciality is labeled "Polish" and that may be the case, I'm not familiar with Polish cuisine but I do know the food was excellent with quite a variety of choices. Have not qualms about suggesting this restaurant for anyone who appreciates quality food, great service, a variety of food choices, and within walking distance of the 16th street mall.

  • Belvedere - a Great Find

    The potato pancake appetizer was the bomb - the pickle soup (which my husband and I tried at a wonderful community center in Seattle...that was SO good!) was good, but a bit watery. It wasn't what we were expecting - although recipes vastly differ on this dish. I ordered the chef's perogies with red sausage. Very good! The flavored vodkas (fruity one, caramel, and gingerbread) were so tasty - but ZERO effect. We are convinced it was delicious water. :-) The crispy (dessert) crepes were worth the calories and the baklava was good, too (although overly sweet for me). Overall, I'd definitely go back. But I wouldn't get another flavored vodka.

    Loved this quaint and pretty Polish restaurant. It has an old world charm that was very inviting. They even had an organist playing soft music in the background. I had gotten a Groupon as there were going to be a group of us and thought that the offer of discounted drinks and appetisers would be a good way to help with the larger bill that I thought would be coming. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience, the food was delicious. One of my friends got the trout and it was to die for. The shared appetisers were all large and went around well. The drinks were inventive and we all just thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The service as impeccable and the server was very polite and attentive. Would definitely go back.

    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.

    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.

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!
