    Went for Denver Restaurant Week dinner. Our wait person seemed hassled and overworked. No smile. DRW menu was wonderful, but the noise level is way too high. It is hard to have a conversation.

    The server explained to us that each couple would order one appetizer, one entree and one dessert, all for the low low price of $60..ordering from the regular menu would have made it about $50. We thought it defeated the whole purpose and charm of RW to upcharge for the prix fixe menu, so we opted to go off the regular. Bf and I shared an appetizer and two half orders of pasta--three items--for $45. The food was really good. It occurred to me later that the server might have been mistaken, but I don't think I'll be back...it just seemed like they weren't ready or weren't interested in participating in RW, which just gave a bad impression.

    I have dined at Wooden Table several times. Last night the food was not up to par, but, that was hardly noticeable compared to the server we were unlucky enough to get at our table. I don't believe I have ever had a less personable or less helpful server in my life. She threw plates down on the table, interrupted our conversations without apology, and was abrupt and rude to us. Food: What does it tell you when I say that the clams in the linquini and clams were bigger than the muscles? When I mentioned that the muscles used to be huge, she told me it was beyond their control. Not true, ask a restaurant like Bistro Vendome. Wooden table should have been embarrassed to serve them and even more embarrassed to employ a server like ours!

    My husband and I love this restaurant. This time we enjoyed out meal outside. The service was just as prompt and memorable as eating in-doors. The bartender suggested a Cab that was absolutely superb! The restaurant was very busy and we did need to wait but just for a few minutes and the staff was most apologetic for the delay. I had the Tortilloni and my husband had the duck-both were excellent. A wonderful evening!

    Went to dinner for the 2nd time and had the unfortunate luck of getting the same server Ramon. Terrible service both times. Last night we sat for 20 mins till he came by and ask if we wanted something to drink. Another 15 mins go by and I flag him to take our dinner orders. I asked for bread never got it. He never bothered to check On us to refill our water and see how we are doing. If it wasn't for the other servers, we would have not gotten any service whats ever. I won't be coming back. There are too many good place to eat in the Denver area to put up with poor service

    Groupon for 4 - 2 apps, 4 main, 2 desserts - we also added an extra app & dessert. Food was good - appetizers - enjoyed the liver mousse pate, but wouldn't have the polenta again. Main - all the dishes were really tasty, duck, beef, pasta, scallops. Desserts - to die for, seriously these were fantastic! Found the cocktails to be expensive. The service was not what we expect - server was nice enough, but we didn't get our water glasses filled up, and noticed other tables were given bread and offered fresh ground pepper, neither of which we were offered. Didn't look like there were enough servers to take care of all the tables, so maybe a management issue.

    Very disappointing. We have been coming here since they opened and the service and food have been in a steady decline. Our waiter was horrible and the food was average at best. Gary, the GM, was not there and it is too bad because I would have told him how disappointing our dining experience was.

    From the appetizer of mussels with homemade sausage and saffron to the luscious lemon semifreddo dessert, this meal was perfect. The pastas are each distinct and mouthwatering. It was a real treat to order half plates for a variety of flavors and textures. Service was relaxed, knowledgeable and friendly.

    Once again, we were not disappointed with the service and the food. Both exceeded our expectations. The noise level was high when we arrived, but things quieted down about 1/2 way through the meal. We did not expect things to be quiet on a Saturday evening, so this was not unexpected.

    First time we went the food was great. This 2nd trip was lacking the attention of our first visit. Food was still good but the prawn appetizer was incredibly difficult to get out of the shell. We've had many shrimp appetizers full body in the past bust this was horrible. Had a pasta dish that was different from what we had in the past and it was great. Had another duck dish the same as the first trip and it was just as good, still a bit salty. Service was horrible. Took forever between trips back to our table. Not very friendly or helpful. Tried pawning us off on another waitress. Restaurant was far less than full. While the food was still good, not quite enough to draw us back for the price. No offer of an aperitif this visit.

    We had a 7:15 reservation and were seated at 7:55. During that time the host offered a complimentary glass of wine. Nice touch. However, we ordered Chardonnay and got champagne (sparkling wine), which the host insisted was Chardonnay. Hmmm. When we were seated, our waitress took 10 minutes to ask us if we would like something to drink, then without taking our requests, turned around to address the table behind us. From that point on things improved in both service and quality of the meal, with the exception that salads were delivered prior to our appetizers and you couldn't peel the shrimp appetizer. Place was crazy busy and lively on a Wednesday night, don't think they expected it, I know we didn't. Would I go back? Maybe at 5:00.

    Food was great, would go there again for it. The cocktails sound uniquely delicious, but actually disappoint. Just tasted like alcohol with some citrus. The biggest frustration was that we had a reservation but still waited 45 minutes for our table. The restaurant is tiny so they obviously overbook in an effort to make up the money they lose on limited dining space. Would only go back on an off day/time.

    Have been here many times and had good experiences. This time, we booked a last minute table for 2 at 8 on a Thursday. When we arrived, the place was packed and the bar was full of people waiting for their tables. Not sure how they even allowed us to book a table on OT. Anyway, we waited for a while, then got a seat at the bar and waited a bit more. Then decided not to take the first table offered as it was right in the entry. Finally, we got a quiet table near the back of the room. The bartender was actually our server. she did a great job. Seems they like they taken the food quality (and unfortunately the prices too) up a notch. Everything we had was excellent. Highly recommended for a bit of a splurge night out.

    Food is very good to excellent, friendly staff great service. Everyone pitches in here from the Bartender to the Hostess, no one shys away from service you. Mussels appetizer is terrific I could make a meal of just that. Small menu but plenty of variety, went there with my Nephew and a friend and the friend is vegetarian, he loved the food. So did my nephew. Will go back as often as I can it is a great place small but sufficient.

    Our group of 4 really enjoyed the food, which was done perfectly in every aspect. Service was exceedingly slow at times, especially getting wine to the table. I think most of the trouble was between the bartender and the waitstaff. As others have mentioned, this place is expensive, especially the wine list, which has almost nothing below $50. Because of the expense, we won't make this a regular spot, but for a special occasion place in Greenwood/Centennial, I would recommend it over Venice Ristorante.

    Another great dining experience at The Wooden Table. Everyone working here is welcoming, sincere and accommodating. The food was wonderful--we had the mozzarella and prawn appetizers; the scallops were amazing as usual; and the others really liked their pastas which the waitress recommended. We had the outside terrace to ourselves, which was great, as the dining room can be a little noisy. It was the first visit for two in our party, and they were amazed that such a great dining experience existed in this unassuming, tucked away location. My only recommendation would be to add a couple entree items or specials, preferably fish or seafood. We'll be back!
