It would’ve been nice if someone told us upfront that we needed to reserve a ping pong table right off the bat (from the time we checked in).

We had the Peking duck and it was such a treat. Prepared table side by the chef. My dad has memories of this dish from 40 years ago and he was so delighted with it! It was a fun night and special to be able to share that with my parents. Thanks so much for making it a great experience.

The ramen seemed overpriced and definitely over salted to all of us at the table. Also the other special noodle dish we ordered for restaurant week was poorly seasoned and not very hearty for the price

Asian fusion is the best description for ACE which is what we wanted. We do not have decent asian food where we live and this filled our craving perfectly. The crab fried rice was worth the extra $, potstickers were perfection, shrimp wontons were good, albeit a little spicy for one of us as was the shrimp bao bun. Sake selection was good and our server was very attentive. All in all, would return in a heartbeat next time we're in Denver.

Great! I love going to this place and they are knowledgeable on food allergies. I have celiac and the waitress was great along with the other servers and kitchen staff to ensure there was no cross contamination. I would highly recommend the Brussel sprouts, gf bao buns (lettuce wrap, but still amazing) and as a mean fish, crispy beef either the beef version or tofu is great! Both are great.

Way too noisy to enjoy a. conversation, and we were as far from the bar and ping pong room as possible. The food was quite disappointing, as we have had much better at sister restaurants Steubens and Vespa. Other than that, this repurposed old garage space was outstanding, the place was hopping and our waitron was almost terrific - they only goofed up the booze order.

Everything was great except for ramen broth being spilled inside my purse when they delivered the food to the table. Not just a few drops but what probably amounted to several tablespoons. The sever didn’t seem to notice and I’m sure it was an innocent accident but a bummer.

Chef trach Tran is a Jewell in Denver’s culinary crown. His food is innovative and complex with layered flavors. The Thursday only Peking duck is one of the best dishes in all of Denver be sure to order in advance as he only prepares 8 per week! The multi day process yields perfect duck with crispy skin and very deep flavor. Ace is energetic and noisy and the wine list needs help-they don’t have a bottle list. But the draw is the crazy great food.

The food is phenomenal and is the reason to come here aside from the ping pong you can play afterward. Strong flavors, balanced, unique, absolutely delicious. We had the Duck Confit and Pork Belly Bao Buns, Shishito peppers with Brussel sprouts and lime Aoli, potstickers, and shrimp wontons. My favorites were the wontons and potstickers because the sauces were so good. Only reason it’s not 5 stars is because the service was particularly slow and we had to ask for our peppers. I highly recommend it, particularly for special occasions or for bringing people from out of town!

Arrived shortly after opening, so not many people and low noise level. Decent music selection playing. Service was good, food arrived fast. Food was pretty good, would definitely come back to try more things on the menu. Ping pong was awesome, bonus for getting free play if you're in the service industry.

Didn’t end up playing ping pong after dinner. All the tables were full but it looks like a fun place to hang out. The pitcher of radler is a great deal and super tasty. Would definitely come back.

I would give a zero if I could. I waited 20 minutes and was only offered water. So I left. I went to a neighboring restaurant that was just as busy. I was seated and waited on immediately. This was my first time to Ace. It was also my last. Plenty of places with quality Asian in Denver. I’ll never know if this is one of them.

Really great atmosphere, music, and service. The food was good but a little too salty, especially the duck ramen. Not sure if that's standard or was just an off night. I'm sure we'll try again!

Loved sitting outside on breezy nite. We sampled a lot! Our favorite was the very sweet crispy beef, blistered beans and spring rolls. Also tasty was the pho, bimbop and coming up last ... pot stickers.

Fun time playing ping pong outside and the beer was cold and the company great! We will be back!
