Diner Reviews
  • "Went for my parents anniversary, when we arrived they had great champagne ready for us! The server was amazing and had excellent recommendations. Everything we tried was phenomenal, especially the pork chop! Looking forward to going back for the "let the chef cook" experience!"

  • "Good quality food but a little pricey if you have any drinks."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "This menu is exceptional, fun and satisfying, traditionally Scandinavian and cutting edge at the same time, with something for both adventurous and non-adventurous diners. We worked our way through the menu, starting with small and medium dishes and then sharing a generous entree. Don't miss the delicious Raaka, with its lovely smoky surprise presentation. Everything on the menu is well chosen, well presented, and a good value. Excellent cocktails, spirits and wines. Beautiful, comfy dining room!"

  • "The drinks were really good and the beet salad appetizer was delicious. However, the entrees were disappointing. The scallops dish was too salty, with the exception of the beet risotta which needed some salt. As such, it was a good pairing between the salty kale and the risotto, but the kale was exceptionally salty and I couldn't hardly eat more than one small piece per bit. The scallops were cooked well, but again too salty. The lamb shank was nothing extraordinary and tasted similar to beef stew, which I would never choose to order at a restaurant."

  • "We had never been here before and we WILL definitely be going back! From the nice décor to the service, knowledge, and food this place has it all. Our waiter Hans was very knowledgeable of everything on the menu and did not hesitate to tell us about the different things since it was our first time. He provided impeccable service and suggestions. The back wait staff was also very attentive as well, making sure our drinks stayed full and we had anything else we needed (he was a cutie too). The food was absolutely magnificent! I had the scallops with the beet risotto and my taste buds went soaring! My partner had the pork chop which Hans recommended and he was right, it was the best chop we've ever had. We truly enjoyed everything."

  • "Tried Trillium for a birthday dinner. Wait staff was attentive and friendly but did not hover. Scallops cooked perfectly. I could have done with a bit less beet risotto. Trout was outstanding. Porkchop was beautiful, definitely not something you would ever find in a local grocery. Really nice evening."

  • "There was nothing at Trillium that didn't exceed our wildest expectations. Nuanced flavors were present in every single dish that every one of us ordered. The kitchen was most accommodating in dealing with food allergies and preferences, improvising with remarkable acumen. The interior of the restaurant reinforces that this is a place you don't want to leave. We came to Trillium with high hopes; the chef and wait staff certainly didn't disappoint us. What a meal!"

  • "trillium is about a 4.8, but I can't give perfect scores. Creative drink list. Check. Trout raaka, a crudo that was epically delicious, as in "this is what whitefish was made for!!!" Check. Mussels that were wonderful....check. A lamb shank that would make a vegetarian crave lamb...yes, that good. Check. A friendly and knowledgeable server who gave just the right amount of attention...check. And a modern, fun décor with a set of circular couches that would make waiting a delightful event. Yup, that, too. I felt sorry for those folks outside on Saturday drinking green beer, and wearing the Irish green clothing, while we were inside having a darn near perfect dinner. Well, no I didn't. Trillium is a gem......."

  • "We had a lovely anniversary meal at Trillum. The food was unique, and the flavors were wonderful. We are big fans of seafood and would recommend the oysters, which were quite fresh and tasty in the ginger akvavit, the trout raaka served in a jar, and the "Glassblower Style" perch. We also shared the beet salad topped with frozen goat cheese. The frozen goat cheese was amazing! This is a must have dish at Trillum. The drinks were also quite good as were the desserts. Our severs, especially our waiter, were excellent! All in all, this was a great place to spend a special night, and we will be going back again soon to enjoy their delicious food."

  • "The restaurant has a great vibe and the wait staff and definitely well trained but unfortunately the food is definitely lacking, especially for the price. Had I made those dishes in my own kitchen, I wouldn't make them again. We had the mussels which were pretty good. We also ordered the chicken and the pork chop. The vegetables with the chicken were pretty bad - they just didn't taste good. I've been eating a lot more veggies in my diet so it's not just the veggies but also the execution. It just didn't seem like a good pair."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Our party of four ordered over 8 dishes just to try the majority of plates. The food was amazing. We tried stuff that we never ate before and things that individuals hated from past experience loved and found a new respect for certain foods. Amazing Experience."

  • "I chose Trillium as my birthday celebration destination and they did not disappoint. Outstanding food, service, drinks and atmosphere. If you want to try something a little different in Denver, their Scandinavian/American cuisine offered here is a must try. Even if one doesn't think some of the combos they put together sound that good in the surface, the way they are expertly prepared is sure to knock anyone's socks off!"

  • "I had the "Steak and Eggs", which was a very creative play on the original dish and tasted amazing. The Pork Chop which was the best pork I had...ever. I enjoyed the sweet potato and bacon hash on the side. Dessert was a Chocolate Bread Pudding, which was not soggy at all, tasted more like a cake. My fiance is not a fan of chocolate, but she really enjoyed this. On the food side, 5 stars. Service was a 5, except they forgot my 2nd drink until we got our meal and didn't receive until I was almost finished. Also, the TV at the bar was a little distracting for me. Hence, the 4 stars. But other than that, it was great a place I would recommend it to anyone who wants a fun culinary adventure and I can't wait to go back!"

  • "The flavors at Trillium aren't familiar to most in the U.S. but they are put together exceptionally well. If you are looking to get out of your comfort zone and try something new, Trillium brings an authentic Scandinavian taste to Denver."

  • "Great food presented in an interesting way. We went here for restaurant week, and it was a great bargain considering the size of the portions. Friendly service explained the details of every dish. I would definitely go back."

  • "Space is open, not much personality. Server was rushed. It seemed like they had the foundation to be a good resturant but just hadn't brought it all together."

  • "Wow...when I signed up for Denver Restaurant Week, I wasn't prepared for Trillium. My guest and I were awed both by the food and service. Every single dish was exquisitely prepared and presented, The steelhead trout appetizers and Skagen shrimp were wonderful, as well as our entrees of trout and steak. And the desserts did it,,,,a fine end to a perfect evening! Thank you. We have already told so many people of Trillium. One of the places I will definitely return now that I know it exists."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "I love the Trillium space - clean lines, modern and open. The lounge area in the front is a great gathering place for pre-dinner drinks. For the main course, I ordered the vegetarian beets with pappardelle. While the dish was beautiful (noodles were deep purplish-red), there were not a lot of beets and the flavor was just a bit too vinegary for me. The cauliflower soup and the apple phyllo dessert were both very delicious."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "My friend and I were very excited to try this restaurant. The service was great overall. The tables were very small and close together- so much so I could barely move without running into someone next to me. The cauliflower soup was excellent, but that was the highlight of the meal. I ordered trout, but I'm fairly certain I got salmon. The gnocchi was the best part of the dish. The food overall was good, just not great."

  • "We went for dessert. Everything was unique and delicious. Our server was amazing and funny! It was really quiet because there weren't many people, but I can see it getting noisy. The waiting area was so inviting and posh-looking that we went and sat there after our meal. LOL It was really special."

  • "My mouth is still watering thinking about the food at Trillium. Gouda cheese plate and all its accoutrements, Skagen toast, Steelhead trout, Never-ever strip. Everything made to absolute perfection. SO delicious! We will be back for more! Two issues: (1) The tables are way too close together. At least the two-tops along the wall are. (2) The service was so-so. We were at our table at least 10 minutes before our waiter came to greet us, the way the bar & waitstaff interact with you is better suited to Denny's than a $30/plate restaurant, and I can't count how many times staff walked by our table and left empty, dirty plates sitting there. On the plus side, the waiter knew the menu well and the food came out of the kitchen at a good pace."

  • "Booked a reservation for Valentine's Day on Open Table weeks in advance but was only notified by the restaurant of their pre-fix menu the day of the reservation. Food was good but definitely not great and in no way was it reflective of the high price tag. $12.00 martinis that weren't worth the ice used to chill the glass. If you're accustomed to getting what you pay for, I would not recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I made reservations there for Valentine's day a few weeks ago with no indication that there was a pre fix menu. They called to confirm and when I called back 4 times I got their fax machine. After an email to confirm I got an email back informing me that they were having a pre fix menu. I called back to make sure they had a veggie option but no mention of the price. No price in the voice mail, the email or on their web site either. No price even listed on the menu. Then we get the bill for over $200. The meal was mediocre at best. A meal that would cost half that at a comparable restaurant, they should make sure everyone knows the price. Then we left them a comment on Facebook to get no response and they deleted the comment."

  • "We had a lovely evening at Trillium. Great service, and unusual, delicious food. I never would have guessed that rutabaga custard, for instance, could be so delicious! My mother, who was Swedish, made me eat it as a kid, and I hated it. But the preparations here are so unusual and creative, it's hard to go wrong. Also great wines and cocktails. Give it a shot!"

  • "Took my wife here and we both really enjoyed the complexity of flavors. Billing themselves as a fusion of Scandinavian and American flavors, they offer a lot of cured, pickled, and fresh fishes and meat. Ordered the tapas sized portion, perfect for sharing at $8 each. We tried the bone marrow dish (what a name!), but didn't really care for the "meat butter" flavor which was very rich. Almost everything else was a treat, in no small part due to the layering of flavors. Favorites include the cured beef, the salmon, & the desserts--chocolate bread pudding and the whipped meringue. Service was some of the best I've had (attentive but not overly so)."

  • "The restaurant was surprisingly slow for a Friday night, but the food and the service were both fantastic!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "First, let me say the service was incredible, the restaurant interior was intimate and the food great although in my opinion a tad pricey. The biggest downside is the location it is only several blocks from a couple of the shelters it was a ugly winter night, so between the parking lot less than 1,500 feet away, we were approached by three different people on the way in and two others on the way out. It was a depressing way to start our date night it is heartbreaking to see in our own country the broken, homeless, and hungry."
