Wonderful dinner. Pet friendly garden seating
Will recommend to friends. Low key - friendly great food.
We will return.
Well crafted interesting dishes, excellent wine lists with good advice from server. Loved the wine flight samplers. Local ingredients and low carbon footprint a point of pride and well deserved. A little slow, but worth the wait. Best thing we had was fried goat cheese with pickled cherries!
Who knew? One of the best dinners ever. Sunday night, could have rushed us through. No. Perfect timing. Perfect service. Perfect food. This little restaurant in Grand Junction can go toe to toe with any restaurant anywhere in the world. The attention to detail- perfect.
Our waiter Joshua was a gem, he honestly made our whole experience. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and overall very pleasant. The food was delicious, beautifully plated, and perfectly portioned. I am a huge foodie and this was such a nice, relaxed environment in which to introduce my family to new foods.
This has been my favorite restaurant in Grand Junction. Unfortunately, this time, the food was not that great (burger was way under cooked and lamb chops were cold). But the service was fine and the wine fantastic.
The lamb stuffed chili relleno was very good. Will have to go back for another; the rack of lamb was terrible -- very fatty and full of gristle. Would not recommend. Husband had the roast beef. Said it was just okay, nothing really special about it.
Great food and service as always!
My wife and I really enjoyed dinner at 626 on Rood! The food was excellent and our waitress was probably they best we’ve ever had!
Experience was ok. Server was very knowledgeable about food and beverages, but defensive after she asked what we thought about food and we shared our honest thoughts about one of the dishes we got. Burgers were excellent and cooked to perfection, pasta dish with scallops a bit disappointing... scallops tasted as they were seasoned with liquid smoke, completely overpowering their fine and delicate taste. Restaurant was very noisy, very difficult to have a conversation. Too expensive for what you get.
626 Rood has the most extensive wine list of any restaurant in GJ. The food is creative and focuses on local fresh items. one of the top 3 restaurants in GJ!
We dined outdoors near the restaurant's garden and it was lovely. The service was very professional and prompt - just the right touch. The food was even better. We had the meatballs and fried oysters for an appetizer and both were great. Mains were the Colorado lamb chops (you get to choose the portion size and two were fine) and the paella. The food was nicely presented and very good.
Loved the seasonal asparagus tart!
The service was great, but I was a bit disappointed we could not get a dish off the social hour menu during the designated social hour time (it was 5pm) simply because we were seated in the dining area according to our server. I was told I could come back and sit at the bar if I wanted to order off that menu...not quite the response I was hoping for obviously. Then, the children at the table next to us in the dining area received a social hour dish from the same server. I enjoyed the seasonal food (asparagus bisque), but thought the fish was a little bland on flavor. The squid ink pasta was quite good with the smoked flavor of the scallops. Overall, great restaurant for the area.
Wonderful waitress-very knowledgeable about wines-helped us select a perfect bottle. Delicious food. Visiting from WI-wish we had this restaurant near us.
We love this place and try to go every time we are in Grand Junction. The food is fresh and creatively prepared and very interesting. Originally we were placed between two really large tables but after about 20 minutes someone noticed and moved us without asking. Thanks! Loved our whole experience. Only 2 very minor suggestions, the waitress was not that knowledgeable on different wines and the dessert menu was missing major chocolate. We love you guys and will be back!
We had great food and incredible service. The owners checked on us and our waitress was excellent. If you are in Grand Junction this is a must eat at place.
The $1.00 oyster special on Sundays and Mondays and The wine flights are a great deal. All the dishes we had were excellent.
Curtis did a wonderful job of providing excellent recommendations and superb service.
As usual, 626 in Rood was wonderful. We don’t get to go here as often as we would like but every time we do, 626 is as good as the memory! We love the service here- we are always made to feel like the only diners in the restaurant and we cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. Thanks for the lovely evening!
We always look forward to dining at this lovely restaurant, and have never been disappointed! The attentive staff, outstanding wines,and delicious food keep us coming back. 626 is our favorite!
We ordered the lamb with a cherry reduction glaze and it was fabulous. The atmosphere was lovely for date night. The cocktails were served in pretty glasses and tasted as great as they looked. The chef came to our table and gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation for the next town we were visiting.
Always a great evening of dining! Thank you Justin and Alisha for taking care of us!
We always enjoy 626, mainly for special occasions, as it is a touch pricey. The wine list is varied and the staff are knowledgeable and willing to work with the customer in pairing wine and the meal. My wife was excited about the little Happy Birthday touches 626 is willing to add.
626 on Rood is an excellent dining experience. We were in Grand Junction for a night, staying downtown, and didn’t want a run of the mill meal. 626 definitely delivered an awesome meal. We had the crudo, the sticky peach habanero calamari, the swordfish and the maple pecan pie. Everything was spectacular. My favorite was probably the calamari. I loved the wine flights. The only menu related shortcoming was the beer selection. It’s also pretty pricey for Grand Junction but I didn’t mind since the food was sooo good.
Quality and creativity of food was very good. The server was a bit too full of himself and detracted from the dining experience.
Another outstanding meal at this downtown Grand Junction gem. The food is fresh, flavorful, and inventive. We split the full rack of Colorado lamb which was cooked to perfection and accompanied by a creative cabbage gratin. The served made a great wine recommendation for this dish. We love this place and find reasons to come back often!
Just the atmosphere I was looking for. Wait staff was incredibly knowledgeable. Good was amazing. Can’t wait to go back
Birthday. They print a menu with your name on it. The food is always top notch. The chef wrote out the dressing recipe for their special salad for my wife. Waiter Dustin was the best. Everyone made our evening fantastic!!
We always dine at 626 when we are in Grand Junction.
Our server was very attentive, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals! The Downtown Restaurant Week menu was great!
Nice staff, great food but seriously overpriced. Tables too close to each other so you can conversations going on next to you.
As always, 626 Rood has very good, creative food. Their wine list is the most extensive in the Grand Valley, and you can sample "flights" of 3 small glasses each. They are one of the few high-end restaurants in the Grand Valley, so their food and wine is pricey. That said, on Sundays and Mondays, you can get oysters-on-the-half shell for $1 each!
Oh, and if you are checking them out during the inaugural Downtown Grand Junction Restaurant Week, 3/19-3/25/2018, you must order from the special Restaurant Week menu to get the stamp on your Restaurant Week Passport.
Thank You 626 ! We’ve always had great dining experiences with you. But our daughter’s 21st birthday dinner was truly exceptional! Including a personalized menu signed by the staff was such a great touch, she will keep that to help her treasure the memory of a wonderful night!
First time there and the food was great! As a non-drinker I was a little intimidated by the “wine bar” part of the name but really glad I finally tried it. We will be back!
Loved everything!! Wish we could have had a booth versus the small 2 top but still enjoyed immensely ! Great server, Angelina? Ask for her. Clever wine flights and great calamari
Very nice place and the service outstanding.
It was very placent.
Love this place! It consistently brings a great dinner every time!
Just a great place for unpretentious yet fine dining. The food is excellent with the exception of the paella. It is tasty but not on par with true Spanish/Cuban paella. We will definitely return to explore other entrees.
Extremely loud. Very small table. Tables very close together. Portions are small. Wine flight selections were good. Lamb was fatty.
Drinks are amazing, as is the service. Food is ok, not quite worth the price point. My fish had no flavor, so I requested salt, and received these hige salt chunks that were useless as seasoning. They were literally crunchy salt bombs in my mouth, and very unpleasant. However, love, love, love the staff!!! They definitely pride themselves on top notch service!
We go out of our way to dine at "626" when we are in Grand Junction. The food is VERY special & we enjoy sharing a variety of taste treats, which the menu makes easy. The service is also very special & adds to the fun - creating an array of dishes that would flow well with one another, help with wine-pairing. It is a "special occasion" place for us, well worth the expense.
