    Had an amazing dining experience this weekend. Double cut pork chop was the best pork chop I have ever eaten. Outstanding pasta and mussel dish. Really enjoyed beef carpaccio and Caesar salad. Tres Leches dessert was perfect ending course. Nice wine list. Certainly will be returning to this neighborhood gem. Glad I live close.

    Love this place, and glad they are in the neighborhood! Great place to go for quality food & drink, yet affordable so it can be more than a "special occasion" date night. Don't overlook the exceptional drink menu, and I particularly love the beer served in old German craft mugs. This is our go-to date restaurant in the edgewater / wheat ridge area.

    We started off with a crabby waiter, one word answers about the menu, acted like he'd rather be anywhere other tha serving meals. We waited too long for our meal and the restaurant wasn't busy at all on a snowy evening. Two of us had the grilled chicken sandwhich and they were both barely warm. The caramelized onions were served right out of the fridge....we were thinking they would be hot out of the skillet, and the lettuce(?) was a reddish looking leafy whole branch of the plant with 4-5 leaves still connected to the branch it was cut from. A side salad was served the same way with little to no vinaigrette dressing. The chicken was two reasonably large pieces piled one overlapping the other making it awkward to cut or eat. The fries were drenched in salt. I walked by the open kitchen area twice and the cooking staff was having a grand old time laughing and socializing...sort of explained the mediocre dining experience. We vowed to not visit again.

    Four of us had Brunch on Saturday. Arrived early, friendly staff and good surroundings. Nice working fireplace for cold days. Open setting with good view of the kitchen. A good Brunch Menu selection. Two of us had the Corned Beef Hash, one had an Omelette and one had a Signature Eggs Benedict. All was very good and we would order again. We had Bloody Mary's and Specialty Coffees and they were all very good as well. Easy location to get to with off street parking. There is a very nice outdoor patio that would be great in warm weather. We will go back for lunch and dinner. Good website with menus and both interior and exterior pictures. Give it a try.

    I have waited over a year to try West 29th, which is new to my neighborhood. The food was excellent. I would strongly recommend the asparagus tart on the "Mains." I had some excellent sausages. A lot of food is grown on site. The meat comes from a butcher shop 1/2 block away that I know from my own experience has excellent "cuts." The room is warm and soft, but a bit noisy. West 29th has a couple of patios, but we went well into late fall at night so that wasn't a possiblity. We had an excellent waiter who kept us informed and was quite witty. The only thing missing when we went was an IPA. The brews we had were excellent and include European lagers and pilsneers on tap.

    Found this place on a bike ride and booked a large table for extended family days following. We enjoyed the simple menu and very reasonable prices. The menu seemed to be in season with great options for every type of eater. Some of the food was very rich, especially the celeriac soup and the gorgonzola beef stroganoff. The atmosphere is very comfortable and inviting and the food his delivered with nice preparation.

    We had heard good things about West 29th and were happy to find out that most of them were true. Unfortunately it was too cold to eat outside in the garden patio area but the inside was fairly warm and inviting with the wood floors and trim. The menu has a nice selection of food items and the waiter was helpful in describing how they were prepared. Our food was very tasty and the vegetables were fresh and not overcooked. We just ordered an entrée and that was a good size portion for us but if you were really hungry it might be a good idea to include a salad or appetizer. The dessert was good but I wouldn't go there just for their desserts.

    The menu offers some very innovative items along with old standbys like trout and lamb chops done in creative ways. Everything we had was delicious: cauliflower and black eyed pea salad, strawberry salad, shrimp and crab scampi and the vegetable tart. The wine list is limited, but with good choices and modestly priced. Service was friendly and prompt, leaving nothing to be desired. What a pleasure and a surprise in Wheat Ridge. Though we live in Conifer, we're looking for occasions to go back.

    Very disappointed in the food. Love the staff and the decor especially the patio- great to sit outdoors and visit . This was the second time in 2 weeks we dined and there were very few tables - 6 months ago you couldn't get a table without a reservation. We used to rave about the entrees and everyone was polite to refrain from saying anything derogatory. Hope they can figure this out soon.

    The location was an eyesore garage. Now a beautiful neighborhood gem. The food was very good and well worth the wait. Service and the atmosphere and the fact that the location is so close to home made the choice even more worth returning later. I will tell all my friends and family about the 29th ave restaurant. I will also return to have another great experience.

    Ambiance and service were good, if a bit noisy inside. Outside garden area looks lovely. Food took a long time getting to our table. My husband's pork dish was cold, every item on it. The stroganoff was tasty but so rich it was hard to have more than a couple of bites. Caesar salad was too fishy. We had high hopes for West 29th Restaurant but we won't be returning.

    The dinner was very good, and I particularly enjoyed dining outside near the fountain. Since I need gluten free, I liked the fact that I had choices. The lamb was excellent and served very attractively. I also enjoyed choosing a wine from the long list, and it was quite good as the waitress had mentioned.

    The staff, especially Erica, was very accommodating and friendly. It was a pity that it was drizzling that afternoon but when we got out late in the evening, the patio was so enticing. The food was excellent; I had the crab & shrimp scampi while my friends had the gorgonzola stroganoff. The tres leches was simply perfect (not too sweet & with a hint of chocolate). Overall, it was a delightful evening to share chocolate and bellini with friends. It would have been better if we went there on a Thursday when it wasn't raining & when West 29th usually have live performances as well. We'll definitely come back.

    The outdoor dining and ambiance is the plus of this restaurant. The food was good and the presentation was wonderful. I wish they had a few more vegetarian items, plus ones without 'cream' (that's really the only reason I didn't give it a 4 star) It took a bit long I thought for my dish to come out. That could have been because I got there just as the restaurant was opening for the evening. I haven't tried their brunch yet, but I like what is shown on the menu and plan to come back to have a go at it.

    Dishes are very interesting and well presented. Service is friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Comfortable and pleasant environment, though lots of hard surfaces make for a high noise level when there's a crowd. All in all, a must for the list of places to frequent and places to take friends from out of town.

    Great location and ambience. Server and waiter were excellent. Hostess argued about seating arrangement in an almost empty floor at 530. Too bad. Food was original, apps were excellent, black-eyed pea cauliflower salad, celeriac warm soup, yum. Main course disappointing. Overcooked and over sautéed spaetzle. Asparagus tart overwhelming sundried toms and undercooked pot, then dry. Gorgonzola stroganoff, tasty but dry. Priced high for what we got. I want to support local, will give benefit of the doubt.

    We were only in Wheat Ridge for the night and booked with West 29th after visiting TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. My wife has food allergies and was accomodated in every way. Eric went out of the way to check with the chef regarding the preparation of her food. I had the Shrimp & Crab scampi. The pasta was house made and so good. The seafood was very good.

    I had heard good things about this place. The scampi was heavy with cream sauce. The spaetzle was overdone and dried to a crunchy, dehydrated texture. When we asked for fresh spaetzle, they took over 30 minutes to being it. It came after we had all finished our dinners, without any apology or explanation. The service was good, but the manager's response to our complaint was dismissive. We won't go back.

    the menu was original, with local food (?) not sure where they found the Colorado bass unless it was at a fish farm, just saying. The pasta with shrimp and crab really didn't have much crab, but it was very tasty. Overall a great deal to choose from. Very good and creative deserts voodoo bread pudding was on the menu the night we were there. Do give it a try, salads would be great for lunch, add chicken or shrimp.
