Ace features three unique spaces, housed in the old Storz Garage space at the corner of 17th & Pennsylvania. Like its sister restaurants, Steuben’s and Vesta Dipping Grill, great attention was given to the design of Ace. Repurposed and recycled materials are used throughout the space to create an industrial design and comfortable setting that compliments the history of the building. Ace was a recipient of the 2012 Mayor’s Design Award.

Ace serves Asian inspired dishes conducive to sharing, drinking and hanging out. Voted as Denver’s Best Bartender by 5280 magazine, Randy Layman has created a bar menu featuring house made sodas, fresh juices, Asian beers and a craft cocktail menu.

Ace is a place to eat, drink, play, and hang in another unique and creative destination in Uptown, Denver, Colorado brought to you by the team from Vesta Dipping Grill and Steuben’s.

Great cocktails and food- the bao and crispy beef especially were so good. Definitely wished we booked a ping pong table as that would have been so much fin. Great service, fun and energetic ambiance, would be great for a big party too.

Terrible food and service. The table tennis is fun but not worth the overpriced and mediocre food.

Having gone on the Lunar New Year, I cannot speak to the regular menu, yet the special menu was superb. Full of special treats, and fun ideas; the Dragon's Breath (meringues in liquid nitrogen) being well worth it on their own.

I ordered the Lobster dumplings with Shrimp ramen and the peppersteak rice plate. The Ramen was heavy handed in the soup base, there was too much shrimp/seafood paste/miso or something. It tasted like red curry and flour...and I also ordered to go a Peppersteak rice plate, but there was no rice. Price was a little over the board, when you can buy a pack of Japanese noodles, Neguro, for $1.50 per pack from King Soopers. I'm sorry, but I will not be back there anytime soon.

Our server was pretty terrible. Maybe he just started so I gave him the benefit of the doubt and still left him 20%. The food had good flavor and looked nice. The ping pong was by far the best part of the experience though.

I felt harassed by the constant emails and texts about confirming my reservations. It was a Monday night and plenty of room in the restaurant but they even called as we were parking for another confirmation.
Our server was very passive aggressive and rude. The food was fabulous though!

Drinks took 10 minutes to order. I ordered the pork belly buns and the dumplings at the same time. Food came out in 5 minutes and beat the drinks to the table. Pork belly bun was good and the dumplings were NOT HOT and obviously were a mistake for another order and served to me after the fact.

Decent food. Decent service. Very limited vegetarian/vegan options. My companion had the miso ramen and the broth was far too spicy, her thai iced tea was way too watery. The house made soda was decent and the seafood ramen wasn't too bad. Service was ok, nothing to write home about. I guess I would be more likely to come back if I was trying to play ping pong.

First time in and we were very impressed! We were seated immediately at the bar top overlooking the open kitchen and when we were ready to place our order the waitress advised us that there was a slight kitchen delay because of several large parties, but we wouldn't have known any differently because every still came out quickly. All of the food and drinks were delicious. We ordered two cocktails (Enter the Dragon & Eastern Standard Thyme), two types of bao buns (Short Rib & Pork Belly), the Duck Ramen, the Bibimbap, and the Fried Mochi. The presentation was simple but the flavors were terrific! We will definitely be back!

Everything was really good. The hostess was so nice and had our table set up with car seat sling! It was so nice to have plenty of room for a car seat! Our waitress was really nice and did a great job. It was hard to catch her for refills and had to ask for dessert menu but I think she had too many tables which I’m guessing was not her fault. When we did ask for something she was right on it! Great covered outdoor patio that was surprisingly cool with fans on a really hot day. Only issue was they were pretty powerful and made the food cold quickly. Food & drinks were delicious overall, great kid meal and kid friendly! Inventive menu with lots of options. Really fun place and will definitely go back!

Food was underwhelming. Service was extremely slow. I called ahead to reserve a ping pong table, and was informed I’d still be waiting an hour, despite the hostess confirming there wouldn’t be a wait. Bright spot they let us use a table for a little bit with my kids. We went to check it out, but I wouldn’t bother going again.

This place was interesting. It serves Asian cuisine but looks like an American restaurant/bar. The food was delicious and the drinks were perfectly blended. There were three parties going on at the time so it was popping.

Been to Ace many times over the years but had not been in a while. Was disappointed to see that the fried chicken Bao was removed from menu. Also the whiffy black sauce (bean curd?) that was so good was also not available any longer. Brussel sprouts were a far smaller portion than in the past.
food was great as always, but my favorites were no more.

Finally were asked if we wanted drinks after 30 minutes of being walked past by numerous employees. The room was not full with other customers. We had just started to make an open table reservation with another restaurant down the street and were overheard by one of these employees. We placed a drink and food order when finally acknowledged and it was out quickly. No refills on drinks or inquiries about the food. The ramen was decent but the service was insulting.

We had a great birthday celebration for my husband at Ace Eat Serve. The food and drinks were great and our server did a fantastic job! After dinner we played ping pong, and the staff was very kind to move our reservation time out by half an hour, as we finished enjoying our dinner outside on the patio. Thanks for a great night!
