About Ace Eat Serve
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.

The fun and lively energy of the Ping-Pong hall carries itself to the outdoor Pong tables, picnic tables, and into the dining room. Ace is a different and affordable night out. A drink on the patio, a casual dinner at the Chef’s Counter, and some laughs over a game of Pong combine to make Ace a totally new and unique concept to Denver. On Tuesday nights we hold a weekly tournament. The tournament starts at 6pm and is free to participate.

Ace Eat Serve Ratings and Reviews
Always enjoy going to Ace, we’ve even made it a New Years Eve tradition.
Food, as always, was great. Service this past NYE was somewhat absent minded. That’s really the only way I can describe it...left us sitting waiting to order (in an emptying dining room) for 30 minutes, forgot that I’d ordered another drink... made eye contact and gave him the heads up sign twice as he visited other tables - never came by. If it hadn’t been for the manager randomly coming by... not a typical experience by any means. Usually service is excellent.
Still - had a great evening and the great food that keeps us coming back.
We ended up leaving without eating. I had taken a look at the menu and read reviews beforehand, and thought this place would be good to try, plus, it was close to where we were going after dinner. I also sent the menu to my friends to make sure it looked ok, but clearly no one looked at it. We sat down and were completely underwhelmed by the menu and lack of options. The menu is small. I have a lot of food allergies, but I can usually find a few things on the menu that I can eat. Of the things I could eat, I was not excited. We ended up going next door to Steuben's. We won't be back.
Went there to meet a friend visiting from out of town for the fun ambiance. Pre dinner ping pong was a great way to break the ice for our kids who had just met that evening. Unfortunately, once we sat down for dinner things went South. Personally one of the worst meals I’ve ever eaten, which came recommended as best item on the menu from our server. Bi Bhim Bob. Tasteless. Steak and snap peas like leather. Kids noodles were basically stir fried with soy sauce- can you say salt attack, and cold. Just gross. Wish I could say better things, cool spot, bad food.
The food was great and our waiter was great! He even gave me ice cream with a candle for my birthday! The hostess failed to check us in for our reservation. When my friend called to reserve a ping pong table whoever answered was very rude and chastised her for calling the day of. Bao buns were our favorite and the shiva shots were yummy!
I come here for the atmosphere more than anything. The food is fine, I would like it more if it wasn't so expensive. I feel like it isn't a great value for the money. But I will say the service is fantastic and I love their homemade sodas and cocktails. The great service and atmosphere make it worth checking out.
We were in Denver on a visit and wanted to try something fun. This place rocked! Our server was splendid, her recommendations on the menu was perfect. We had the Pad Thai.. incredible! Shrimp fried rice.. fab! Calamari and Egg rolls on the appetizers ... beautiful! Local brew .. tasty! The energy was fun, uber hip and vibrant. Great place and highly recommended!
I would say that Ace Eat Serve has great potential. It's a fun atmosphere with table tennis and drinks. However, the "gluten free" menu is full of items that would make you sick if served as described. I as a celiac person and my fiance both had meals that made us feel ill later. The woman who was filling waters in the restaurant even though we had water on the table, filled my drink glass with water on top of my cocktail, then disappeared w/o solving the problem.
I would not recommend the restaurant until they get it together. Pretty weak with potential.
I went for the "famous" wings. We arrived about 5pm. The menu was very limited until dinner at 6pm which seemed goofy. You can get ramen and a special drink but not just ramen. The restaurant smelled fishy when we walked in which was a turn off. And then the wings were crispy, saucy (tiger sauce), and reasonably priced. However, again, they smelled like fish. I realize that they use fish sauce or paste as an ingredient, but they just weren't pleasant to smell which wrecked the entire experience. The bao buns were soft and mushy and small so surely not worth $5 each, so nothing we ordered except the pickled cucumber salad was good. Disappointing.
My first time here and I really enjoyed it. I work full-time as server in upscale dining which makes it hard for me sometimes to enjoy eating out, but Ace nailed it. Friendly host. Great server who knew her stuff, especially about the wine selection. Food was delicious. Will definitely be back. One odd thing about their wine menu is that they don't discount a bottle of wine vs 4 standard glasses. There's no incentive to get the bottle. I thought that was really odd.
A group of 4 of us visited ACE. We were sat outside promptly per our request. There was a bar adjacent and people playing ping pong nearby. The decor is fitting with the times and very well done. We shared multiple appetizers and raved about every one of them. We each had a different main course and I didn't hear a single complaint. In addition to a great meal you can play ping pong while you wait or play before or after. ACE is a unique experience and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends. I will be back
Meh. Food wasn't great. Asked for spicy on my pad Thai and it came almost uneatable. And I usually order 'Thai hot', but this was out of control. The crispy beef was crispy, but not a lot of flavor. There were so many staff, but so few of them were doing anything, the service was fine and they were all pleasant, but could have been better. And, the food took forever - like 25 minutes for two dishes. Maybe some of the bar and restaurant staff should help out in the kitchen. We won't go back, and we're bummed about that.
We were visiting Denver from Austin and I always love finding the local places, which is why we came here. Also, ramen was on the menu. Loved the atmosphere and building, reclaimed design. Very fun. We were seated right away and the service was great. Ordered spring rolls which were amazing and my husband and I both had ramen, Shio and Mushroom. I was not at all impressed with mine, the Shio. It was bland so I doctored it a bit and ate most of the noodles, the egg but not much else. I didn't complain but was honest with our waiter when he asked. Upon receiving our bill there was a 100% good karma line where they deducted the cost of my ramen. So awesome and the main reason why I would recommend this location. Two thumbs up y'all.
Usually a huge fan, but the new menu left me missing the old one and the music was unbelievably loud. You couldn't have a conversation at the bar despite there being open seats. The server even commented on how loud the music was but did nothing to fix it. Left quickly.
