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.

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!

fun location with great entertainment, a little more expensive than it was worth both food and prices for ping pong. food was oversalted and seasoned and lacked balance, especially the vegetarian ramen

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!

Overall really enjoyed discovering this place. It was our first time. Food was amazing!! Love having a place to play ping pong. Service was good but could have been more attentive. Between that and it being a little pricey, these were the only reasons I couldn’t give 5 on everything.

My husband and I enjoyed an awesome date night dinner here- the patio was lively but not overly crowded, the food was amazing, the waitress accommodated my finicky food allergies with patience and sympathy, and we had a blast playing ping pong after dinner. The owner was there making sure everyone was happy and attended to. This is the type of establishment we are so happy to support. Will definitely be back with friends!

This is the second time that we have been to Ace Eat Serve in the past year, and we have enjoyed it each time. This visit we ordered crispy spring rolls, pot stickers, a scallion pancake and crispy beef. All were good, but the latter two were to die for. We haven't had a decent scallion pancake in years, basically not since we left San Francisco in 1985. This one was terrific, with both ponzu and onion jam dipping sauces. Most of the crispy beef came home with us, to be enjoyed for lunch the following day.

Food was good, and service in the restaurant was good. But the ping-pong service was very slow, even at the counter to get our table and to close our tab afterwards. It was fun, but would only return if I had plenty of time to allow.

2nd time at ace and it was just as good as I remember it! The ramen was wonderful and the shrimp wontons were perfect! The drinks were on point, the old fashioned with plum was really good and wasn’t to sweet. They took our 6 top earlier than our reservation which was great and made us all feel welcome. Thank you for a wonderful meal!!!

Not impressed. They were out of the specialty cocktail then tired to order an ice tea and the were out of iced tea?! We ordered food but server failed to submit the complete order and came to inform us 35 minutes later they were out of the Green Curry- attempted to make it right by offering a free dim sum that we ordered but then 20 minutes later NEVER came. The whole dining experience was horrible and I left hungry. Definitely not going back. Too bad- has a cool vibe but lacking on service and food.

I was told over the phone weeks ago that I could bring my dog to the patio when we head outside for ping pong. I was also told when we arrived that I could bring him onto the patio. I brought him onto the patio and then had another woman approach me saying that he was not allowed. I planned to eat dinner here because I wanted to enjoy my pup as well. Please train your staff to all follow the same rules. It’s frustrating.

Thank you for brining this experience to our attention and apologize for any miscommunication on our end. While we do not allow animals in the restaurant or on the patio, unless they are service animals, we do have picnic tables that are adjacent to our patio so you are able to still be close to your pup while dining with us. We would like to connect with you more, please feel free to email our GM holly@aceeatserve. c o m. Thank you for your time, -Ace Eat Serve

Food was decent and service was good. We came with a large group and the one thing that would have made it all better would have been to assume split checks for the table. It doesn't seem that hard as many other restaurants do it.

Great fun, wonderful patio and fantastic Happy Hour. All that wouldn't matter, though, if the food were not up to those attributes. Glad to say that it is, each and every dish that we tried. Now, toss-in very friendly service, from the front hostess to the servers and it's clear that we'll be going back. Often.

Great place for kids and adults to get the most out of a night out together! My daughter requested this restaurant for her 5th birthday dinner. Great “bento box” style dinner for kiddo’s and it includes a shaved ice for dessert. Outstanding service from the staff as always. They are extremely attentive and go the extra mile to please, especially concerning dietary restrictions - vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, etc.
