Very Covid safe with distancing and special air filtration system. Food and service also good
Our plans were to dine outside but it was quite windy. The hostess seated us in a private dining room which was great. Our server Tasha was very welcoming. Entrees were very good.
740 Front is fairly pricey for a neighborhood restaurant but I'm glad we chose it for this occasion.
So glad we got to come to dinner on the 9th, indoors. Food was uniformly excellent, as was the wine and service. Treat yourself and visit 740 Front!
Thank you for supporting us! We appreciate your patronage.
Always amazing and creative in all aspects of dining experience!
Thank you for the kind words & support. Our experience through the recent restrictions have allowed us time to focus & improve our menu & service. We're so glad to hear it's shining through!
Lovely experience. Food was great!
Thanks for the 5-star review! We appreciate your support.
First, I love 740 Front Street, however this visit was sub-par. We had a reservation and were seated next to the door even though there were many tables (well within Covid guidelines) where we could have sat. So every time the door opened, we got a brisk reminder of how cold it was outside. It took way to long for our server to come to the table and then his attitude was far from excited to serve us, which shocked us as we would have thought everyone would be super happy to be back at work. Then, he seemed somewhat perturbed that we ordered three appetizers rather than entrees. We did end up ordering one entree to split, which we told him we would yet it was delivered on one plate. At least we were provided two knives to cut the meat so we didn't have to share. The food was simply ok. Their wonderful spinach dip was so runny the cheese wouldn't stay on the tortilla chip (no longer pita). Our shrimp cocktail was the best part of the meal. While the owner made his way to other tables, he didn't make it to ours. The hostess was simply delightful. We will return, but after they settle in with having indoor diners again.
Thank you for your recent review. Although our reservation system automatically assigned you to first available table for that night, we would have welcomed to hear that you were experiencing physical discomfort. If possible, our hostess would have gladly accommodated your request for a different table. We will explore solutions for drafts coming from the front door as well as using this feedback as a learning opportunity for our waitstaff & kitchen to improve. Thank you for your support.
Great service! The manager came and thank us for coming back in after they were closed due to COVID. The food was delicious and nice cocktail menu. We will be back.
Glad to hear you had a wonderful time. Thanks for the great review!
Wonderful evening with safe and gracious hospitality. Owners thanked us for supporting them. Attentive, timely service. Cosmos/martinis plus homemade meatloaf were delicious - Best mashed potatoes ever.
That's excellent! We're so happy to have you in. Thanks for the feedback & the great review. See you in here soon!
Wonderful food, lovely sitting outside with heaters-so cozy! Ribeye wonderful and the Mac & cheese!
We're so glad to hear you had a wonderful dinner! Our heated seating is one of the best outdoor dining rooms in Louisville!
Every experience we have had at 470 Front has been magical! There is not one dish on the menu which we haven't loved, and the cocktails are amazing. The owner and staff are wonderful, please give this establishment your business. They are a local gem, and like all establishments, they have struggled with the Covid restrictions, but their service has never lagged and they remain one of my favorite places in Louisville.
April, thank you for your kind & compassionate review. It is with the support of patrons like you that keeps us motivated to push through every hurdle. We deeply believe we have something to contribute to our community. Thank you again for supporting us during tumultuous times.
Sat outdoors on Dec 26 evening. Outdoor heaters worked great. They had foot heaters also, but we did
not need. Felt very safe. Food and service was very goog
WOW had amazing steak, grilled artichoke, drinks - everything was top notch! Would go back again in a heart beat!
740 Front has done an amazing job with their patio seating, their social distancing and providing a comfortable and safe environment. We had great appetizers, awesome steak and seafood and a great experience. Their food is outstanding and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!
Great date night! Sat outdoors with two heaters and enjoyed a fantastic meal! Got to meet the owner as well, great experience...highly recommend!
So great and surprisingly warm! 2 heaters really helped out. My favorite restaurant never disappoints. Lovely folks there too. Please support them!
Nice outdoor dining experience during Covid, exceptional service and wonderful food.
The food and service were excellent! Toasty warm on the patio with all the heaters!
So sad that 740 will have to close in-person dining for a while. It's my favorite Boulder County restaurant. Robin and Fred and their amazing staff have always provided the best experience ever. It's been such a joy to dine outdoors at 740 through the summer and fall months. PLEASE help support these awesome folks with your take-out dining orders. We need to help these beautiful neighbors survive the next few months until we have a vaccine.
Great restaurant! We are visiting from WA and this is our third visit to this restaurant! Great food and even nicer people.
Bison Filet was outstanding. Staff was so kind! Will absolutely be back
Food is always fabulous. I had their rib eye steak; my husband had seafood cannaloni. Love taking friends their. Service is spectacular as well.
We love it here! Classy yet casual. Sophisticated yet relaxed. Food is consistently very good. Service is always attentive.
Very warm and friendly over all feeling. Upscale but not fancy. Prices are a bit high for what you get (especially the $14 martini jumped out at me). Feels a bit like they are charging close to downtown Denver steak house prices but offering one step down in both service and quality.
Amazing experience. Loved the food and our waiter was extremely friendly, helpful and courteous. Really enjoyed the atmosphere/design of the place. Highly recommend!
It was a very negative experience. Upon arriving early for our reservation we were informed that we had a max of 90 min in the restaurant. I am black and my white friend who had arrived prior to me made the comment how the waiters attitude changed once I had arrived. The waiter was rude so we ended up leaving and was able to get into the Melting Pot where we had a fantastic meal and time.
Food was great! Staff was efficient and kind. Highly recommend!
Rarely if ever do we write reviews, but I had no choice because this was hands down the best new restaurant experience we’ve had in years! So glad we discovered 740 Front. Absolutely worth the drive from Denver. Beautiful renovation of historic building. Everyone - from the host, to our server, to the owner made it an exceptional experience. I consider myself a bit of a steak aficionado and I was blown away by the flavor and tenderness; perfectly done. And to find a great, well priced bottle of Barbaresco, just shows how much they care about creating a balanced dining experience.
This is definitely a restaurant to support and make sure it survives through this extraordinarily challenging time!
Thank you, we’ll be back soon!
Very good I would go back again.The bar is amazing
Sat outside under heaters. Very comfortable. Food was good as always
Everything was delicious, the service was great and the food was amazing. Thanks for a great anniversary dinner!
Fred, Robin, and Jack treated us exceptionally well. The filet and dungeness was delicious. Exceptional meal!
The food was terrific for the most part. A side of asparagus had to be returned and reordered bc it was way too overcooked and mushy. New side was perfect. My friend's Seafood Cannelloni with Saffron Cream was quite tasty bc one could taste the saffron. My NY Strip was cooked perfectly. There is no chocolate option on dessert menu. The only non-dairy dessert item is Apple Pie, but it was good.
Always good food and good service at 740 Front. Consistent and enjoyable.
Great service! The 740 barrel aged Manhattan was an amazing start. Both had the ribeye, cooked to perfection and the seasoning was sublime!
We live in Boulder, but this restaurant has become one of our favorites. So much so we eat in Boulder less and happily make the drive because it’s worth it.
Let’s just say no one came to our table for 15 min. I’ll never go back.
Pita - I would like to sincerely apologize for your experience, it certainly is not the standard we set nor the results we want or expect. I would like to comment that during these difficult times as result of the limitations placed upon our industry from Covid, that restaurants including ours are operating with considerably less staffing than normal in efforts to try and make ends meet, and stay in business during these tough times. We ask for your patience & understanding Fred Burns, Owner
The food was excellent, along with a beautiful ambiance!! We will be back!
Ambience, food and service were all great. Owners are present and involved. Highly recommend.
We went because they bought a filtration system and so we could eat indoors - was really hoping it would be a good meal and a nice time. It was absolutely!!
food was okay, waitress was uninterested in our being there, but helpfull. NO LAMB, booboo! too much money for the experience.
