A word from Washington Park Grille
The Zagat Survey says, "There's much to like about this Washington Park Italian-New American: "good food", a "great patio" & "cheerful" service & ambiance."
Upscale thirty-something’s & the college crowd mingle at this popular neighborhood restaurant & gathering place east of Wash Park.
A covered strip on the south side of the building makes for convivial outdoor seating (you just might see a neighbor), and Sunday brunch offers an all you can eat Buffet (juice, soda, coffee and tea are included). A beautiful lounge is off to the side. 11 beers are on tap, 15 in bottles and an excellent wine list at the elegant U-shaped bar.
Dinners are mid-priced, with a nice selection of grilled seafood & steaks & several fancy pasta dishes. The lunch offering is paninis, grilled sandwiches, salads & pasta.

Diner Reviews
  • "I made last minute plans and they had space. The everyone was attentive but not bothersome . The fod was excellent."

  • "Wait staff is (as always) very pleasant and helpful! One note: cloth napkins were extremely linty (my skirt was covered in white lint)"

  • "Table of five...one ordered soup as first course..two ordered salads as first course. One received their salad as a first course, the soup arrived at the same time as the entree and the other salad did not arrive at all! Little attention by server to the table. Unusal service for the WPG!"

  • "Very excellent restaurant which in my view has everything you want. There is a very nice energetic bar area. The dining room is very posh with a moderate noise level. The outside dining area is more relaxed and quiet. No matter which area you pick the food is excellent."

  • "After hearing about how wonderful Wash Park is I could hardly wait to try the place and was I disappointed. We sat at our table for several minutes before receiving water and the more time before a waiter appeared. When I asked about specials his comment was "I don't know". I asked for the kale and romaine salad with dressing on the side and my friend had the three egg omelet. We also asked for coffee which came almost the time our meal arrived. It took so long for our food to arrive I though they had to go out and grow the kale. The salad was coated in dressing and the omelet was very small and dry. I think they took it off the buffet as it was very dry and almost cold. I would like to say I would go back but it would be hard."

  • "It's been a while since we dined at Wash Park Grill, so not sure if our experience was typical of how things are now or it was just because it was the 4th of July- it was an early dinner, and the restaurant was slow. Although the food was very good, the service was horrible. The person helping serve our food just reached across in front of who ever was in the way to deliver the plate to the right person (is it that hard to walk around to the right spot to put down a plate?) Our waitress disappeared after delivering our food ... no offer to refresh our drinks, or ask if everything was OK. We did get a water refill eventually. She resurfaced to clear our plates, at which time we just asked for the check. I'll think twice before going back."

  • "This has been my 3rd visit, the food was outstanding and so was our server. Great place to take a date! but 2 out of the 3 times we ordered Pizza and added a twist the kitchen messed up the order We had to watch others get their food ahead of us even though we were there much sooner. Now to the credit of the management they came out and comp the pizza and 1 sweet dish, which was nice but it takes away our time and our visit. We are from Boulder so the drive wasn't a short one. I hope this gets back to the kitchen! the on thing that really didn't settle was I had to ask about our meal based on others getter theirs first. The server should have come out and given us a appetizer to show some good faith!"

  • "My family had brunch on the patio. Beautiful flowers, "quiet", cooled by fans and more-than-reasonable pricing w great selection of menu items. More than we expected!"

  • "We had a wonderful meal and spectacular, friendly service at an early evening meal. The outside seating was great, and my out of town guests loved the atmosphere."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We love the atmosphere in this place - very eclectic bar/lounge, reasonable size dining area (not too big). We've been here for drinks before; this was the first time for a meal. It took awhile for our waiter to initially acknowledge us (we had to ask for him) but from that point on he was very attentive and entertaining. Diverse menu geared for mature tastes."

  • "Always enjoy the place...a bit too noisy with 5 very cute( too bad they knew it!) loud young ladies. Food,wine,even dessert all great and good waitstaff."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We haven't been there for awhile because we got a little tired of their menu. When I saw online that they had changed it we decided to give it a try. We started with a drink at the bar - they do not make you feel welcome there - actually kind of put off. Maybe it's because we aren't really YOUNG but who knows. Once we sat at the table no one came to serve us until we finally had to flag someone down. Our server was nice, but we felt like we were an inconvenience. My fish dish was ok but so overdresses that it might have been chicken for all I could taste. It got very busy while we were eating (which is great for the restaurant!) but it was so LOUD we could hardly hear each other. Not sure about going back."

  • "Fish was over done but everything else was great especially the service"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The cocktails were cheap (happy hour) but weak with not much alcohol in them, very disappointing as we were celebrating a special occasion. We also have to ask them not to put ice in the fruit juice drinks, which they ignored and we had to send them back - its a ripoff if you ask for a fruit juice, and get 3/4 glass of ice with a 1/4 cup of fruit juice-. The food varies at this place sometimes its good other times its nothing special. Also if you give a person a bowl of liquid soup its a good idea to provide spoons and side plates for the bread etc. However it's in a great area and the ambience is good and other times the food, service and wine has been very good.

  • "A neighborhood favorite for my wife and me. We eat there frequently. Our meal there Sunday night was as good as ever. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Food, service, & presentation were excellent. Sea bass & polenta were fresh & full of flavor..crispy on outside & tender inside topped with a delicious "compote" that blended with the fish and did not mask the flavor. Piped in music was very annoying, however...a steady pounding club music type beat that never changed! noise level too loud for us. "

  • "My family and I have been patrons of Wash Park Grill for years, both for family events and business lunches. I planned a birthday lunch for my daughter and thought it would be a perfect place! Unfortunately, the food was only so-so, but the experience was worsened by horrible service. Beginning with no knowledge of the wine list and then an interminable wait for both our drinks and the food, the lunch went downhill from there. We were even commiserating with the table next to us whose diners were equally dissatisfied. We did notice a marked lack of diners (compared to other festival years, when you couldn't get near the place!) and I guess, now we know why."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "As usual, the food was great. The service was just lax enough to have time to enjoy the company without interruptions, but timely when it was desired. In spite of the block party going on outside, the noise level and ambiance was marvelous. Note that the short ribs were excellent and the clam/sausage pasta was also a hit. Make sure to leave room for the creme brulee. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Always enjoy this place. Fun and loved music fest going on. But our server just seemed too busy and not interested. Restaurant was busy of course but there were many empty tables around us so don't know where our server was. "

  • "This was our first visit to WPG and must say the food was fantastic! What would have been helpful was to have a lazy Susan in the middle of the table to allow easier access for taste testing! If you WANT to share ;-)"

  • "Wash Park Grille is a personal favorite. This particular Friday night, the kitchen was a bit off...quite a lot slower than normal (start to finish, dinner took almost 3 hours). But the staff was friendly, and I was with good friends so the time went by, and the management apologized for the delays and comped us a desert. The restaurant is a class act, and anyone can have a chaotic night once in a while. The meals were fabulous once they arrived. "

  • "I've been here many times and have enjoyed both lunch and dinner over the years. Last night, Jennifer was our server and she took excellent care of our party of 4. The food was excellent - Brussels Sprouts and calamari apps, ravioli night! - and Jennifer was able to help us make some nice wine choices. Just a lovely experience that all of us enjoyed. Made the reservation on OpenTable, requesting a booth for a bit more quiet (my dad often has a hard time hearing the conversation in many of our fair city's establishments) and the staff accommodated that request perfectly. Always a great go-to, Wash Park Grill took it up another notch last night. Thanks!"

  • "I just moved to the Wash Park neighborhood and was excited to walk to bruch this past Sunday. The Wash Park Grill is energetic and gives off a great vibe. My waiter was as attentive as he could be and I can't fault him for not being able to keep up with all of his tables. I had four people at my table and after a run in the park we were ready for a meal. I had the Italian eggs Benedict. It was OK, but nothing exciting. My friend ordered the granola encrusted French toast, I took a bite and it was lukewarm, but palatable. His side of bacon on the other had was not; part of it was still undercooked. After flagging down our waiter, he promptly got a new order of crispy bacon. This was my first trip, but I am willing to give it another shot. "

  • "Dinner for 7. Meals were hit and miss. Grilled romaine salad definitely not up to previous standards. Char special was delicious. Kobe beef slider very good but soup was not. WPG has always been a favorite but may not have the larger parties there in the future."

  • "Dining out over the weekends is getting to be a challenge in Denver. Our experience at WPG was no exception. The place was packed. Emily our waitress was pleasant and mindful as she could be, but the kitchen and the bar were backed up and there wasn't a lot she could do about that but apologize. We waited almost twenty minutes for our bar order. When my entree came, the mussels' broth had cooled until it was starting to film over. So my advice is plan on filling your table with good conversation because drinks and food won't show for a long while."

  • "As always a great place for special occasions. Unfortunately our server Emily sucked. Attitude was poor and her service was not what you would expect from this place. Took forever to get drinks ordered. Then again forever to get food ordered and refills. But amazing how fast we go the bill !!!! She didn't make our experience a me memorable one. "
