626 on Rood has the biggest and broadest wine selection of any restaurant in Grand Junction. The food is New American with an emphasis on local Western Colorado sourcing. The portion sizes and pricing attract an older upscale clientele. It's in the top 3 for my date restaurants in GJ.
Fabulous restaurant. Excellent menu of local and specialty foods, perfectly prepared. They did some special treatment for our birthdays with custom menu and lavender lemon creme brulee. The wine selections are excellent. The service was superb. My dietary restrictions are pretty extensive and our server knew the ingredients and how the food was prepared and recommended substitutions. I also like that dinner is available at 300pm. We traveled over an hour to the restaurant so it's nice to have an early dining option. I had the lamb and it was perfectly prepared. My friend had swordfish loin and it was excellent. The side dishes at 626 are always special. The cabbage potato gratin was fantastic and so were the roasted veggies. The kohlrabi and spaghetti squash were also excellent.
Food great, but expensive. Portions are too large.
The waiter was rushed and did not fully explain what was on the menu . Over charged us for our drinks. The fish special that my husband received was not lightly breaded in Panko as the waiter stated and it was cold. I doubt if we will go back . They sat us at a crappy table and served others before even taking our drink order. We will not be returning and will be telling our friends about our experiences.
This restaurant never disappoints. From appetizer through dessert, the selections are creative and delicious. And the wine selection is the best in town - collected into flights or singly for you to decide. The waitstaff is engaged and knowledgeable about the meal preparations and eager to help you make decisions. The atmosphere is comfortable and stylish. This is the gem of the Western Slope.
The food was outstanding, especially the Big Eye Tuna egg rolls. And the Bulliet rye old fashioneds with cherries marinated in brandy were perfect. The ambiance is convivial but not necessarily intimate. I think it's expensive--we paid about $160 for dinner, including 3 drinks and 1 dessert--but worth it for a special occasion, New Year's Eve in our case. Our only problem was with Open Table. It claimed that the time closest to 5 pm available for dinner was 3:45. When we arrived, the place was empty and tables were available until almost 5.
We got to 626 on Rood whenever we pass through town because the owners and their restaurant are true gems!
Great food, great service as always. Could wish for a little more variability in menu,but there is a bit seasonally.
Another delicious meal at 626 on Rood. The Big Eye tuna egg rolls with wasabi creme fraiche were awesome! Highly recommended. We split the wagyu beef burger with a side of truffle and Grana Padano cheese fries and an order of paella. Yummy. Great wine list. We love to share a bottle of The Arsonist red blend. And we took a pecan pie for two to go! Late night delicious dinner for two. Tastefully decorated for Christmas/holidays. Brenda & Theo never disappoint!!! Love this place. Worth the 6 hour drive and an overnight stay!
Perfect as always. Great anniversary or birthday spot.
