    Service was great. We went on a Wednesday and the restaurant was packed, a little to noisy for me. Food was good, mussels were awesome, the beef was very tender with great flavor. Gnocchi was ok, wouldn't recommend it.

    The food was wonderful. The service was terrible! Our server was also the bartender and seemed to enjoy bartending more! Slow wasn't even the word for service, it was painful! It took 1.5 hours to get our entrees, and that was after we asked him to speed up our service. It took 45 minuts to get our salad. He then decided that he would avoid us which made it even worse. We had to ask other servers for things. We would not visit again which is too bad because the food was wonderful.

    Enjoyed our first experience at The Wooden Table after hearing good reviews from friends. Limited menu but delicious selections. Red Snapper over cold potato salad was a surprise combination and very good. Tortellini was delicious also. Moana was an attentive server, friendly but not hovering. We went there on the first Bronco Sunday of the season so there were several empty tables but the service did not suffer. Glad we went!!

    We were promptly greeted when we arrived and shown to our table (we had reservations). Staff were nice and knowledgeable. We each started with a Prosciutto di Parma salad. It was very good. For my entree, I chose the Ricotta Cavatelli (which was highly recommended by our server). I found my entree very rich AND WAY TOO SALTY. I could not finish it. We finished with a Blueberry and Mascarpone Crespella for dessert. It was described as being a crepe BUT is was so dense. Flavorful but too heavy. The noise level in the restaurant was on the high side. It was hard to carry on a conversation.

    We have had the pleasure of Dining at the Wooden Table many times. It continues to be an outstanding experience. Our server was great! The entire staff is attentive and friendly. You are always greeted warmly. The bartender is awesome, he is so much fun, even eating the bar is great experience. So nice to have a restaurant that is consistent in the quality of food as well as the qua Ity of their staff. Never a disappointment.

    We used a dining coupon from Travel Zoo to try this restaurant, located only a few blocks from our house. The salads were very tasty and the entrees cooked perfectly. I indulged in a few cocktails, seeing as I could walk home, and they were very nicely prepared and inventive without being over the top with odd ingredients. Our service was a little on the slow side, which left me to eat dessert alone while my husband left to pick up one of our kids, but it was a very delicious molten chocolate cake with a mint ice cream scoop that I didn't have to share so I wasn't too bothered. Our server also forgot to subtract the coupon from the bill initially, but took care of that quickly. She was very nice, just overwhelmed I think, so we will return.

    If you want great choices and food that is prepared and presenting that is outstanding then dine at the Wooden Table. The quality of the food, we had duck, lamb, scallops, and the cheese ravioli as main courses were all outstanding and cooked to perfection with innovative accompaniments. Appetizers included the fennel salad with dates, parpadella bolognese, etc. The service we received from Jordan was wonderful. Will return again, without question.

    Dined on 8/30/2014
    The food and service at the Wooden Table were outstanding. But, as the evening wore on, the noise level got to the point that I could not hear my friend without leaning way in. In addition, the grey print and low lighting made it impossible for my husband to read the menu. Also, the next table was so close, I felt as if I was eating with those two ladies as well as my party. In the beginning we were told our birthday celebrating friend would receive a special cake, but that never happened. It is too bad that these ambience items cannot be reconciled because the food and service are really too-notch.

    The food was amazing; however our server was not attentive. We had to wait over an hour to get our dessert and our check. At the end of the night, our server was nowhere to be found. Also, we couldn’t get cappuccino because the machine was broken, and we couldn't get Sambuca because they didn’t carry it. Those are two major Italian staples for a great dinner. I would not recommend The Wooden Table, nor would I eat there again.

    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.
