    Went for brunch with a group of 10 people. The restaurant was never full but it took 2.5 hours for us to eat. We had to eventually start going to the bar to get our own drinks. The food took almost an hour and a half to come out after we ordered. It was very good but we were all so annoyed with the service by that point that it didn't really matter. We will not be back.

    Had Saturday brunch with friends. Server was very attentive and friendly. It was apparent that he enjoyed working in this restaurant. The food was very good and the only recommendation I have is to include more breakfast items on the brunch menu. The Smoked Salmon Benedict was delicious. Will definitely come back for dinner.

    I was looking for someplace new to celebrate a wedding anniversary. I saw a write up in 5280 Magazine and I decided to try the Curtis Club. The atmosphere was casual and rustic. The service was very good but the Menu was great. We both had the beef tenderloin and it was awesome. I wanted to try the Alpaca but decided to do that next time. Good happy hour deals. We finished with the Chocolate Stout cake and it was great as well.

    Tried this because it was a 1000 point table - good food and nice atmosphere. Enjoyed the coffee especially. Both dishes were tasty but portions were relatively small considering the price. I'd be interested to try other items on the menu but the first experience didn't really blow us away.

    We had such and enjoyable evening at The Curtis Club. The ambiance is primitive mod and provokes the comfort feelings of home. The salmon special was divine and the goat cheese & macaroni a savory bliss. The service was superbly on target, and it was especially nice to be welcomed by General Manager, Erik Bearinger.

    First time at the Curtis Club and we were very impressed with the food selection, creativity, taste, and quality. Five of us had five different choices for dinner and all were excellent. I was surprised to find the alpaca was a delightful change from beef - very flavorful and delicious. Lovely, gracious servers - very attentive. All in all a wonderful dining experience!

    Before I get into the horrible service (maybe a 1 time thing?) the food was not good. Tender Belly Pork: hard and salty. White chedder mac & cheese: Under seasoned. Chicken fried steak: hard and salty. Alpaca: well cooked, too salty. Etc, etc. We ordered 3 appetizers, 4 salads, 7 entrees, 3 deserts, 3 bottles of wine, 15 cocktails. The bill was $500+ before tip. We had great company, the only thing missing was good food and service. We had to flag down waitress whenever we wanted to order something. She brought the entrees out after we all had just one bite of our salads! The waitress didn't think it was strange - even Applebee's staff knows that is not acceptable. It was just straight up amateur hour.

    Went for lunch- house made burrata with a fig spread on the side was to die for. We ordered another one once the first was gone! Went with some girlfriends for lunch and enjoyed every bite. The burgers (we had a grass fed beef and a veggie burger at the table) were fresh and delicious as well. All of the food was exceptionally prepared and presented. Wine was reasonably priced. Can't wait to return for dinner!

    The menu at Curtis Club was wide ranging with unusual and tasty options like llama and fresh salmon. The meat was cooked just right, with immense flavor. The ambience had an elk theme without actually having stuffed heads, which was nice for a change. They also had an inventive drink menu.

    This was my first time at The Curtis Club for brunch and enjoyed that there were plenty of great food and drink options. The atmosphere of the restaurant is pleasant and generally a good vibe. Having been there once before for dinner I can now confirm that while the food is rather good, the service is extremely slow. During the dinner hour when the place was packed it was understandable, though during brunch there were only 3-4 tables and a few guests at the bar, still everything from taking our orders to drink refills occurred only after flagging someone down. The overall experience was fine.

    Having been listed as one of the best new restaurants in Denver, we had high expectations. However we were disappointed. The raw oysters on the half shell were served warm as the waiter had left them sit on the kitchen serving shelf. He apologized as he had overlooked them. I ordered the fish special, ono, which was overcook as was the risotto. Service was marginal and the restaurant was not a third full. To many other Denver establishments to try before I would return.

    The atmosphere was very comfortable. The server had no idea what a gimlet was (which I found strange being in the bar/food biz). I like salt but the food was saltier than even I appreciate. The duck pate was the highlight! Overall, I was disappointed considering the fantastic choice of dining in Denver.

    Food was fairly good, but skimpy portions. Loud and cold, the restaurant was not very inviting. Chairs at our table were uncomfortable (tractor seats on stools), and it was hard to talk at a semi-circular table. Not worth going out of the way to dine there.

    The food is excellent as was our server, that said the menu is a bit limited as well as the wine list. Additionally, if dinner is your event for the evening, as it usually is for us, make sure to request a chair that has a back. Much of the restaurant has community seating and backless barstools (which is fine if you are twenty something). This may be your fate even if you've made a reservation so be sure to make your requests. We did and they honored them so all was well for us. The good news is the restaurant has a great deal of space to squeeze in more tables and dining chairs if the kitchen can handle an increase as well. Highlights were the soft-shelled crab, the truffled mashed potatoes and the rabbit.

    Nice space but loud. Good cocktails. Food really needs work. Every entree and appetizer in our group of four disappointed. One was awful (braised buffalo in pasta was hard and dry...like old jerky). Service felt disconnected and ambivalent. I am hopeful that they can get some consistency (have heard from others that their food was good) and improve because it is a neat space.

    The food was as expected; great. The service was also consistent with other reviews; just a little slow. The restaurant was not full for Sunday brunch and they did not appear to be understaffed, however, the vibe was to relax and enjoy your time. Unfortunately, some of the time was with empty drinks and such, but all in all, I will be returning. We all had something different food wise and my hamburger might have been the best I have had since moving to Denver 6 years ago!

    We had Easter Brunch here and it was a great experience. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and the food was very good. Everyone enjoyed their dishes: French Toast with Rhubarb Compote, Shop Dudes Breakfast and Wild Mushroom Scramble. Coffee comes in a French press, which I love. The decor features recycled wood on the tables and ceiling. The only off-putting thing is the red thistle and deer skull wallpaper but I'll arrange to sit with my back to that next time since it's only on one wall.

    Friendly staff who made us feel really great about our choice. Groups are hard to hear, it's a little loud, but great for a romantic meal. Food quality was excellent. I would recommend that the wait staff, who are amazingly friendly, work on knowing how things are prepared and ingredients, as well as how to better time the delivery. The menu is a bit weird (Llama) and knowing how the chef approaches the food and how it is prepared would be great. A good mix of people. Solid experience.

    I went to Curtis Club with a group of 8. We started out with happy hour cocktails and appetizers. Everything was well prepared and the flavors were great. We particularly enjoyed the Sliders. The wait staff seems to be a younger group, so there is a little more casual feel about them than other restaurants I would put in this 'genre'. All in all we were very well taken care of. I particularly appreciated our waitress who, when I raised concern over the portion size of my duck breast, took my "complaint" to the chef and the rectified the situation immediately. Thank you Curtis Club for a very enjoyable dining experience!

    Took my wife to The Curtis Club last weekend for her birthday dinner. First of all, was very disappointed with the food overall. Neither the appetizers nor our entrees tasted good. Also, even though during reservation I had requested a nice table for this birthday dinner - and their staff had called me to confirm my reservation the day before - no one wished my wife "Happy Birthday!". And we just got one of the regular tables. To be honest, the whole place appeared poorly managed... Needless to say, we were extremely disappointed, and will not be back.

    I've been wanting to try Curtis Club since they opened and we finally made it a few nights ago. Worth the wait for sure. The food was fantastic (get the Rabbit dish) and the service top notch. Many times you can't have a conversation with your table guests at these places, but we found the place energetic, but still quiet enough to visit with our friends. So great place to take another couple and catch up! Wine list was decent and not overly priced like so many hot restaurants. Can't wait to go back!

    I had read some reviews that complained about the service, or that the food was so-so. But mostly they were good. I thought it would be fun to try a newer restaurant for my birthday dinner with the fam, and was not disappointed! Two of us had veg entrees and they were both very good. My hubby ordered the carnival, which was like a sampler of maybe six veg things, like panella, yellow beets, and a tangy ragout. I had pasta with fresh peas, and goat cheese. The goat cheese fondue starter was ridiculous. I love goat cheese. Meat eaters in our group loved the halibut and alpaca, but the pork belly wasn't a hit. Ah, can't win 'em all. A great Malbec and non-alcoholic chai-vanilla soda drink to wash it down too. Oh, and our server was great!
