What Insiders Are Saying
One of Denver's most-hyped openings of 2016 actually lives up to the hype. Pizza and pasta for days.
Service was slow tonight.
As always, the service was incredible. The food was amazing and overall experience was perfect!
Incredible food and some of the best staff in Denver. One of my favorites for sure!
We got there early for our 8:00 reservation. Got crammed in the back with everyone else even though there were tables in the front. Were told those tables in the front were for people with reservations...that's right, we had one. Anyway, the tables were so small and so close together it just wasn't comfortable. Then the guy next to me got his ink squid pasta and we had to sit there and watch him eat it like a foot away. Disgusting. We decided to leave and have a burger on an outside table next door. That was great and we saved a fortune!
The hostess was very friendly and so was the waiter. It probably would have worked out if we had given it time...
Great food and atmosphere. Our waitress suggested the garlic bread. After tasting it, we agreed that the garlic bread is not a cliche and should be ordered.
I had high expectations going to Bar Dough for the first time and I was not disappointed. The fancy toast of the day was fabulous as was the squid ink pasta and broccolini. The star of the show was the clam pizza which on first glance did not seem impressive but upon tasting was mind blowing. Looking forward to my next visit.
Great food, service and ambiance!
The food was really great. Especially enjoyed the fancy toast and the bucatini. Food came out a little slow, so not great if you're tight on time, but if you have good company to enjoy, then no problem.
My boyfriend and I went here because we watched the season of Top Chef with Carrie...but it was even better than we expected! The lobster risotto was amazing, but the Colorado potatoes were the BEST. We also took our server's recommendation for dessert...and it was incredible. Definitely would go back the next time I'm in Denver!
The food was wonderful. I wish I could say the same for our server. In asking for his advice on a bottle of wine - a dry, not oaky white - he made a recommendation. After corking a turned bottle of wine, the second corked bottle didn't meet our expectations based on his description. He made a rude comment to the effect that we're wasting wine and didn't want to uncork any more until we knew what we wanted. It just didn't sit right with anyone at the table, and honestly, it seemed like we were a burden to him. Maybe he was having a bad night? Otherwise the food was absolutely delicious!
1st time here and all of us just loved it. Wine program was terrific and don't miss the pork chop. Service was really friendly and top notch given the casual vibe at the high top table were had. Chef took time to talk with us for a bit at the end. Nice touch! Should have won Top Chef!! Wil be back - lots!
The tomato salad was to die for. The bar service was excellent. Drinks inventive. The entree and appetizer was super so so. Unbelievably so so. Especially given the price. Pasta was over al dente, extra hard to chew, meatball appetizer was burnt and dry.
Casual, comfortable setting with highly creative cooking and good service. After watching Top Chef alum Baird's opponents complain about her winning Quick Fires with 'just toast', we of course had to try the Fancy Toast. Maximum yum! Another diner's 'chicken with lemon' was perfection. It was sous vide with actual drippings, pan seared to finish; and was amazingly tender and flavorful. When I go back, I'm ordering the chicken. Three diners at our table had pasta and we shared tastes with each other. The other two diners thought the pasta dishes were excellent. I thought the dishes could benefit from a bit of editing. The house-made limoncello was like sucking on a lemon drop! It was a perfect way to end the meal.
Was a family(three generations) dinner after hearing about it from one of the pasta chefs. That chef was able to join us at the last minute. She was extremely helpful and could give us much more detail about the menu and the ingredients Was a pleasure getting to share our meal with her, as we had not planned it that way. BONUS!!!
Lacking a children's menu, but the meat balls worked great and the waiter arranged for a bowl of plain buttered pasta. He gets extra points for that. Did have to wait to get our bill, but he was wearing several hats that night.
Open Table said only High Top tables were available. I called BD and asked if we could sit at a regular table (due to older backs and an amputee in our group) and they nicely accommodated us.
Fabulous food, especially the appetizer toast, which that night was topped with zucchini and bacon. Fettuccine with asparagus and clam pizza also wonderful. Great wine by the glass offerings. A little noisy, but that’s to be accepted in a casual place with young people.
Not Vegetarian friendly but the cocktails, atmosphere and outdoor seating are great! I would come back for Happy Hour, but probably not for dinner. I was able to order "a la cart" but I was bummed that most of the main entrees were not Vegetarian. I greatly enjoyed the Spritz and Olives though!
My husband and I were looking for a unique restaurant to check out while visiting Denver for our anniversary trip. We remembered that one of our favorite Top Chef contestants had a restaurant in the area and looked it up and immediately booked it. It was everything we wanted it to be, and we were super excited to see Fancy Toast on the menu, which was delicious. Our food and service was great, the prices on the menu were good and we were able to sit outside. We also took advantage of the Happy Hour drink and snack menu. We only wish Carrie was there at the time so we could thank her for creating amazing food. We would definitely come back here on our next visit!
The food was outstanding and the service was very prompt and friendly. We did find it odd that our order was not put in until after we finished our bottle of wine. Definitely would come back just may not order any drinks if that is the policy.
Food was very good! We had home made pasta and risotto. However it took a good 50min to get our food. Service was not good..
The place is nice, perhaps small and noise gets too loud when it gets crowded.. super loud I would I say.
Our server was fantastic! Great food, nice atmosphere and location.
Had brunch here for a bachelorette party. Staff was friendly and nice. The avocado toast is delicious and if you're looking for something sweet, the ricotta donuts are a plus! Definitely a bread-heavy type of menu.
What a spectacular dining experience. Every item was cooked to perfection.
The food was very good. We had two pastas, each of which was extremely tasty while being not just simple variations on well worn recipies.
The service was spotty. We ordered a dish that never did come. (The waitress comped our one dessert due to this.) Our server did not check in often so we didn’t get a chance to ask about this until we felt it was too late.
The biggest issue however was the noise level. Even at a very small table for two, holding a conversation was basically impossible. It was not at al relaxing. We didn’t choose a high-end place to experience a brew-pub trivia night atmosphere.
Bar Dough is my favorite Italian place in Denver. I would order anything on the menu and be happy!
went there after seeing topchef last year, so made reservations before coming to Denver. We come from New Orleans, so our expectations are high in restaurants. All five entrees were great. The chicken was outstanding. The porkchop with peach sauce and red peppers was excellent. Some interesting choices on wine list. we will be back on future trips to Denver. Really loved the vibe of the place. the music even included an old Neville Brothers tune. And then the TV's behind the bar were showing a black and white version of the movie Thor.
One of the best meals my wife and I have ever had. Food was killer. The staff was amazing. Highly recommend.
Some of the apps and entrees were good (roasted carrots and meatballs pork chop). My chefs favorite fettuccini entree was meh. Skip the fancy toast it was terrible. Overall overpriced.
Two words: FANCY. TOAST.
The food is wonderfully flavorful but be prepared to wait for it. It does not come quickly; that's okay though because it will blow your mind. Ask for Chris to serve you, he is attentive and caring. You can tell he loves what he does! I've already told a dozen people to go!
Food and drinks were excellent. Service by server was excellent. One of the hostesses was surly though.
And although I noted in my reservation that it was my husband's birthday, no one acknowledged the special occasion.
The restaurant was quite loud and was showing 13 Going on 30 on it's TV's, so I wouldn't recommend for a special occasion where you want quiet and romantic, but would recommend for excellent food and drinks.
Loved the food. Carrie and her staff are fab, we left full and satisfied.
Carrie's fancy toasts are the bomb! The Nutella and spicy jam one is so good.
Great! Recommend for any special dinner
I will have dreams about that bucatini for the rest of my life. Oh and two words.. GARLIC. BREAD. Definitely try their signature cocktails and you won't be disappointed. A little pricey but overall delicious.
Our waiter was wonderful and so pleasant. I am sorry that I do not remember his name...
The food was amazing. As always. Thank you.
Were on vacation. Usually have difficulty accommodating my daughter who has multiple food allergies but no problem here. The waiter was extremely helpful, service was excellent and food was creative and delicious. If we find ourselves back in Denver will be sure to return.
Wonderful meal and flavors. Definitely had to get the Fancy Toast and was not disappointed. Service was a little off at times but not terrible. Would recommend!
Bar Dough was good but not great. The dishes all delivered a ton of flavor but lacked balance. The seafood pasta was just a bit too spicy. The spinach could have been anything- there was no spinach flavor. The toast was overwhelmed by too much of a spread that masked all of the other flavors.
The service was attentive but super slow. It took about 70 minutes to get our entrees.
Always try the “Fancy Toast”
Pork Milanese was delicious.
Great wine selection.
