I picked Angelo's for my birthday dinner because I had been craving oysters and heard they had some of the best in Denver. I was not disappointed! I mixed and matched each type of the charbroiled oysters and they were phenomenal! I definitely recommend the chipotle bourbon. We had a party of 8 and they sat us outside in our own private greenhouse, which was super cute and warm, even though it was about 40 degrees outside. Everyone at the table got something different on the menu and not one person was disappointed in their meal. I am definitely going to go back as soon as I can to try their sticky ribs and their Bison ravioli!

We reserved a table in the greenhouse/patio...it was intimate (especially since it was snowing on the day we were there) and warm!! Service was excellent and we were especially impressed with the Carboy house red wine--the sommelier said it was a 2020 vintage, even more impressive!! The oysters were fresh and delicious. My husband's butternut squash ravioli very well flavored, although I thought my lobster gnocchi was a little salty. We were enjoyed our dinner overall and would recommend Angelo's to friends.

Angelo's was a favorite place before the pandemic and they've still maintained the high quality service even during these pandemic times. Great staff, great food, fast service.

Igloos/green houses are cool but we were a little cold the entire time even with the heater cranked all the way up. Servers were all awesome and food was great.

Our server was great, however they seemed to be somewhat busy inside since it took a while for our drinks to be delivered. One member of our party was running a few minutes late but couldn't get in because there were other people waiting out front, which I understand from a social distance perspective. Normally this wouldn't concern me but since we only had the table for 1h15m, we felt the time crunch. We did not have enough time to order dessert.

An amazing selection of food! We tried the rib appetizer, oysters, mussels, lobster gnocchi, butternut squash ravioli, and tiramisu. They were ALL so delicious! My husband's favorite was the ribs. Our server was so friendly and nice. The food came quick, and we only had to wait a few minutes for our reserved greenhouse outside. Definitely give this wonderful establishment a try, you won't regret it!

had an excellent experience the service was wonderful the greenhouse table setting was cozy and clean and intimate the food was very good as usual for Angelo’s . The only reason food didn’t get top stars was the margarita pizza slabs of mozzarella was overkill , But tasty nonetheless ! especially appreciated the birthday cannolis . I’ve never had a bad experience at Angelo’s . The wait staff was top notch .

It started with the host feeling he should make it a point to tell us we were five minutes early. The waitress seemed kind of out of it, asking if one of the guest wanted a refill then forgetting it, an so on. I'm not trying to be overly critical. I know it's been hard on restaurants and staff, but there are several options in the price range and I won't be going back.

We reserved the green house for a birthday dinner which was lovely on the inside. There was a 90 minute time limit however that made everything extremely rushed. When out food came out it looked like it had been under the lamp for awhile. My niece was the only one who ordered something that was a specialty on the menu and hers came about 10 minutes later and she wasn't able to finish. I will be happy when covid is over and the restrictions are lifted. I wouldn't pay that amount to be so rushed again.

Very nice in the green house, color changing LED lights around the bottom. Very quiet, heater above the table with two fans to circulate. Comfortable and extremely fast service! Great food as always and good cocktails.

Excellent experience reserving a table in one of their covid greenhouses. The greenhouse was available upon arrival at the reservation time and had ample space. There was a single heat lamp above the table. The greenhouse was definitely a bit cold on a February winter night in Denver. The hostess/server did not explain that the heat lamp had two settings (low and high) but we figured it out. High made it a bit more comfortable but the light was a bit harsh. We did wear our winter coats throughout the meal so it definitely wasn't very warm.

This is one of our favorite restaurants so we are a bit bias but the food was as good as it always is. They are pretty consistent, possibly to a fault. The portions can sometimes vary a bit and the presentation can be a bit of an afterthought (thinking of my chicken parm). Burrata was outstanding. Mussels were good not great, (and really should come with more bread than they do). Complimentary house bread would be very welcome but they dont do it.

Our server was awesome and attentive but not overwhelming. And food was perfectly paced. We did not feel rushed at all, or that we ever had to wait.

Ate with friends at one of the outdoor dining huts. As always, I had a memorable experience. Service was impeccable, and the food was typically delicious. Since it was my birthday, our waitperson gave me a complimentary tiramisu for dessert. I'll be back again and again!

Best food we’ve had on our visit to Denver. Appetizers were the highlight - the ribs and cooked oysters were awesome. Our group ordered three different pasta dishes and all were great.
