The Wooden Table
I've had only dinner hereI've had only dinner here so far, but hope to return soon. It's a comfortable ambiance and deliciously dependable food.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Flawless ServiceThis is one of those neighborhood restaurants that make you think Denver is really trying to be a grown up food town. We loved it and won't hesitate to go back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent but priceyFood was truly outstanding! My duck was cooked to perfection - non-greasy. Excellent wine list - great variety and relatively affordable in relation to their food prices. Entrees were priced somewhat high and long wait between courses (kitchen, not service, and honestly we didn't care but beware). Definitely a great place for special occasions, especially if you want to stay in the south metro area.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGo on Mondays!Half price bottles of wine for all bottles under $100 every Monday night. Consistently excellent food and service. Menu changes with the seasons. Love this place.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great EveningIf it is a special evening to entertain special gests or a special evening with a special someoe. this is the place to be. Wonderful food, great service. Should be on your resturant "bucket" list.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHighley recommend. Food isHighley recommend. Food is wonderful and service outstanding.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been to the Wooden TableWe've been to the Wooden Table several times and always thought the food was incredible. But this time was even better. It's rare to find gnocchi in the US that are really good and appropriately light, but the gnocchi on the spring menu at the Wooden Table were spectacular.(I grew up in an Italian family and ate gnocchi regularly. I've also sampled gnocchi all over Italy so I have lots of experience. My family calls me the "gnocchi queen"!). I also had the veal cheeks which were melt in your mouth tender and tasty. The brodo (broth) in both the gnocchi dish and the veal cheeks was especially delicious, with wonderful flavors and not too much salt. We will definitely be back again soon.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Wooden Table is an amazingThe Wooden Table is an amazing fine for us. The food is wonderful and we definately have some favorites. This was our fifth visit to TWT and we were not disapointed. TWT was a bit noisier than we are use to; however, I believe it may have been due to the city wide fundraise which we take part in each year.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood HeavenYou just can not believe how outstanding the Italian food is here. All the pasta is handmade in the kitchen and the food fresh with brilliant combinations of taste treats. All in my group demanded more bread so that we could sop-up the sauces on our plates. It has been a long time since everyone at the table was freely sharing bites with one another to decide which of the fantastic dishes was better than the next. It was not a fancy atmosphere but rather relaxed and comfortable. The servers were prompt and knowledgeable on the dishes and wine. I loved this place and will be back many times to come.
I will have a tough decision on which I want next time, they truly were all amazing!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMService was outstandingJordan was our server and did a fantastic job; he remembered and used our first names throughout the night, politely checked in us and made sure we were always satisfied, and replaced missing silverware after I would leave it on a dish that was taken away... HUGE bonus. Food was wonderful, too!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!!! A great placeLoved it!!! A great place hidden between all of the chains.

I was the only one that had been there before, all the women really loved it and their lunch choices! The steak salad got rave reviews.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was absolutely devine!The food was absolutely devine! High quality and cooked to perfection. Very nice wine list too. I will return with more friends!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMRare gen in the suburbsI am really not one to give a 5 star review unless it goes well beyond expectations. All the food was great and well prepared. The flavors were bright and wonderful. Overall a great place for special occasion and a rare gem in suburbs.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFourth visit to Wooden TableFourth visit to Wooden Table and again it was excellent!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food & service. Hostess, eh.First time for dinner. We had a very nice evening and the food was top notch. We split a gnocchi and had the veal cheeks and monkfish for entrees. Apparently Monday night is half price wine night when you buy two full entrees so that was a nice surprise.
A couple minor negatives in regard to the hostess. When we walked in she called us "guys". I really, really dislike that. She seated us at a table for four. After my wife sat, I sat down next to her. Then the hostess questioned my choice! Are you sure you want to sit there?
I like siting next to my wife so we can talk quietly. Apparently the hostess thought I should sit across. Good grief! Hopefully the owner will give her some lessons in hospitality.
But we will return.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Wooden Table is a greatThe Wooden Table is a great place to unwind after a long day. The ambiance was good but not so cosy to be a romantic place. The staff were relaxed, very friendly and were knowledgeable about the menu. Two of us split an appetizer (chicken liver mousse), salad (arugula), pasta (linguinie w/ pork belly - yum!) and entree (monkfish) - and had plenty to take home too. The food was amazing and prepared with a deft touch - no one flavor overpowered the others, and the portion sizes were perfect. Definitley coming back.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh Quality MealExcellent food and high quality service. We went for our anniversary and the vibe was very low-key on a Tuesday night. nice wine list and drinks, and the manager treated us to dessert on the house in honor of our anniversary. A very nice experience; we will go back.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTutto bene!The menu reflects an Italian respect for the freshest ingredients with an American flair for creative presentation. Our favorite appetizer is the mussels (perfectly balanced broth with saffron and fennel highlighted with delicious meatballs and fragrant toast), although the mozzarella, eggplant, and sweetbreads were excellent starters. The red sauce has impressive depth and subtle layers of seasoning. There are no bad choices with the pasta dishes, but committed carnivores will devour the roasted pork bellies on linguine. The homemade sausage is complemented by a crispy polenta, chicken cacciatore and sauteed vegetables. Box up half your primi and secondi to save room for heavenly housemade desserts (especially the gelato).3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst visit but definitelyFirst visit but definitely not the last. Wonderful presentation, good selection of wines, knowledgable staff, and warm ambience. The wife had the duck breast and I had the veal cheeks and both of us would recommend our dishes.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood placeThe fact that Wooden Table is tucked into a shopping center, makes the inside even more appealing. A real "neighborhood" feel. There were so many good choices on the menu, it was hard to decide, but I settled on the sausage, and my husband, that homemade ravioli. Both dishes were fantastic. They took a while to prepare, but we were told ahead of time that each dish was made to order. Our spinach salads were good as well. The waiter was pleasant, knowledgeable, and did his job well. My only "complaint" might be that the monk fish was substituted with some other fish that was not remotely like monk fish. So-no one at our table ordered it. All in all a very nice dining experience.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at the Wooden Table and we totally enjoyed it. We look forward to coming back and trying a different dish because what our friends ordered also smelled and looked great.
Thanks!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific experience! LikeTerrific experience! Like Denver without the downtown!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHands down, one of the bestHands down, one of the best Italian restaurants in Denver metro. Homemade mozzarella panzanella salad appetizer was divine; Potato Gnocchi with lamb shoulder confit was perfection!! Very nice wine selection. Book a reservation. You will not be disappoointed!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAn impressive mix of a creativelyAn impressive mix of a creatively American approach to authentically Italian dishes, highlighting seasonally fresh ingredients with well-balanced spices. Service was attentive but not smothering, and an interesting assortment of apetizers and wines complemented excellent entrees. Top-notch quality from the olive oil to the vin santo. Downtown standards without the commute...our new favorite!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Hidden Gem in Greenwood VillageExcellent varied menu. Food prepared beautifully. Excellent friendly efficient service. All in all, an excellent experience. My two grandchldren, ages 7 and 4 were with us, and the staff treated them very well. They loved the ravioli.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFOOD WAS EXCELLENT! SERVICEFOOD WAS EXCELLENT! SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT! What can I say, it doesn't get much better than the Wooden Table for dinner. What it lacks in ambiance, the food and service more than makes up for it.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDespite the unusual stripDespite the unusual strip mall location, The Wooden Table was excellent. I'm a big fan of mussels, tried me everywhere, and these were fantastic! The wine, butter, sausage and saffron broth was amazing. The waiter jokingly suggested we might need a straw and by then end of the bowl, a straw is exactly what I wish I had to finishe the broth! I also enjoyed the tortellini with spinach, sausage and Romano. The flavors were delicious and creamy. I was thankful they had the option for two different sized dishes and I chose the smaller plate with 6 tortellini which was perfect after all the mussels. I felt perfectly full and not stuffed. The restaurant also has some fun cocktails. I especially enjoyed the sage lemon drop! I'll be back!!!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBig thumbs up!!! Our friendsBig thumbs up!!! Our friends wanted to dine here during 5280 restaurant week. I have to say I was skeptical until the food came and wow was I pleasantly surprised! Everything we ordered was so outstanding, not just good, outstanding! They had a very limited menu, so we were able to try everything and it was all just amazing. Definitely fit for foodies and we are so fortunate to have such a wonderful restaurant in the southern suburbs. I can't wait to go back and check out their regular menu. This will be our new "go to" place for sure!2/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was great,The food and service was great, it was way too loud.1/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
