The staff, the food, the entire meal was a happening.

If you are looking for reasons to feel positive about young people this place will give it to you.

I was very disappointed with this visit - I've come to Assignments frequently almost since it opened. The service was friendly but not of good quality/professional. My friend was insulted by an off-hand remark from the (Maitre D?) person. The rolls/bread have been of poor quality for a year or so, and really not very good on this occasion. Bread, a cheap meal accompaniment, can really add to a meal - and used to at Assignments. The price is higher, but portions seem to have slightly decreased in size, when this place has always been a real treat for price, quality and fair quantity - never too much, but a nice meal. Dessert was paltry, tasty but so small! I have brought at least 15 new people (some from France and Japan) to Assignments over the years, all of whom have "never knew this place existed," and who were VERY impressed.

(I wrote a review on the card provided in the restaurant so please refer to it.) Everything was exceptional! Delicious food, friendly professional service, ambiance wonderful. The music was just right, not loud like in so many places. We could actually have a conversation. The food was so nicely presented on the plate. Only thing I could think of is I should have asked for a knife for the chocolate cup tiramasu. It would have not been so messy, still delicious!

What a great little lunch spot. A great value, really good food and such nice people, from the waitstaff, to the director of the restaurant for the culinary program at the Art Institute, everyone was very kind and concerned that we have a great experience!

This is one of the most unique and delicious places to enjoy a meal! My Mom and I frequent this place when we are in Denver. It's so great to watch students learn how to be successful in the restaurant business. We also love that the menu changes when new semesters begin. If you haven't been here yet...it's a "MUST"! Check their hours though, since they are connected with a school, they have limited operating hours.

I read recently that some cities have culinary schools that run restaurants, so a little investigating turned up Assignments. This is a hidden gem. It's staffed by students who are closely monitored by faculty, so standards are very high. The wall to the kitchen is glass, so we can see what's going on in the kitchen, and more important, they can see and learn from our reactions. The food was well-prepared and the menu diverse and interesting. Presentation was impressive and wait staff are helpful and friendly. I was happy to be part of their learning experience while enjoying a delicious 3 course lunch at a bargain price. We definitely plan to go back.

My daughter and I dined there on Thursday. The staff was attentive and the food was delicious and presented very artistic. I wish they were open in the evenings and my recommendation is that they advertise more because I stumbled upon it. This is a great place for a business lunch or date.

For a wonderful formal meal on a college student budget, or for any foodie, this place is a bargain!! Served and prepared by chefs in training- who really care what you think about your experience. I can't believe it took me so long to go back. So much fun quizzing the students on food and prep and local restaurants and local chefs. Denver has it all.
