What Insiders Are Saying
One of Denver's most-hyped openings of 2016 actually lives up to the hype. Pizza and pasta for days.
Great service and food!
My friends and I really enjoyed the wild boar, Bucatini, and meatballs - and all paired with a wine grape I had never heard of which was a fabulous recommendation by our waitress.
I'm from New York and New Yorker's can be pretty snobby about their pizza - but this is one of the best pizza's ever - from the preparation, presentation and most of all the taste - the flavors - truly awesome.
Nice (but a bit pricey) arugula salad too.
The food and service at Bar Dough was excellent. The garlic bread was exceptional! Will definitely be back to try more items.
Fantastic dinner. We had the roasted carrots, squid ink pasta, another pasta dish that started with a C- and was spicy and excellent! Pasta dishes are so flavorful- the squid ink is an absolute must!!!
We then had the commendatore and signore Bianco pizza- both were delicious!!
Highly recommend this restaurant. The menu does make changes every season!
I knew what to expect price-wise. What I didn't expect was to only get average food for that price.
I alsways love Bar Dough and more specifically, their brunch options. It's my first recommendation to anyone coming in from out of town that wants a great brunch option! Wonderful food and drinks at great prices.
Delicious, fun and super noisy inside. It was fine for the two of us, but would have been tough with more people, especially as there was a super loud party at one of the high top tables. I realize it's the luck of the draw, but be prepared for lots of loudness.
I asked for something special when I made the reservation and that wasn’t done so a little disappointing . Now we recurved a no show alert from open table, so that’s a little frustrating. Food was incredible, waitress was probably the best we’ve ever had. Great explaining the food and drink, when she found out late that it was our anniversary got us a couple of after dinner drinks, and gave a nice recommendation for a quick place to get a drink after. Great restaurant just a couple of misses on communication with open table it seems like.
Fantastic food and a great environment. We were well taken care of and enjoyed ourselves.
Went to Bar Dough because our 20 something son and girlfriend have wanted to try it, but wanted the parents to pay. The food was very good, wine list extensive, good beer selection and the cocktails creative. We chose the meatballs for the appetizer to share. Excellent choice, best part of our meal! The two salads we shared between the 4 of us were also wonderful. Kale/beet salad and carrot salad with faro recommend. The entrees were delicious, not the best meal I've had though. I just had a difficult time digesting $28-$35 for pasta. I had the farfalle with goat and yes the pasta was handmade, but yikes the price! Everyone was happy with their selections, the waiter was attentive and friendly. I paid the bill but felt there are so many restaurants in Denver who overprice their food now because they can.
I've been here probably over 10 times in 6 months. That's a lot.... we live close but there's so many restaurants, they need to be great to go again. And this place is amaaaaaazing. We've taken numerous friends here, and it's been consistently incredible every time we've been. Truly can't get enough of the pasta and the pizza. Well done. Delicious!
Everything we had was great!
Went for the first time this weekend. The waiter didn't say much at first, wish they would have gone over the menu or given us some recommendations. When it came to dessert we asked and their recommendation was great. The signature drinks were so-so. The food was great (pizza and pasta)!! Wish the music was quieter, you have this nice restaurant setting, & black and white movie on the TV's and then rap music playing too loudly for a Saturday night dinner (late night I understand . . . . 7pm not so much). The music was turned down, but at one point I could barely hear the person sitting two feet away from me. Great location, if you are looking for a quite dinner or place to chit-chat, probably not the location on a Saturday night.
The food was excellent! This restaurant does an amazing job at helping people with food allergies as well!
The appetizers we're quite good. Unfortunately, the pasta and shrimp dish was not edible. Portions are huge, including the appetizers. Service was slow... So slow in fact I couldn't even find the server to tell her about my disappointment. I ended up having to pay at the host stand. No one there even asked me how my meal was. An unfortunate experience all the way around.
This is my second time eating at Bar Dough. Last winter I thought it was the best meal I had ever had. This last week, the experience was a bit different, and I ordered the same items. Maybe they had someone new in the kitchen. The kale salad, which is one of my favorites, was a bit oversalted. The black ink pasta was a bit dry. The place was pretty busy, so the noise level was higher than it was in the winter, but it wasn’t difficult to have a conversation with others at our table. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and as attentive as he could be with all the customers.
Seating outside was pleasant, and quieter than inside. It was busy, so I’m glad we had reservations. Food was ok, but chicken on bruschetta was dry, and pizza crust was charred, toppings mediocre. Maybe pasta would have been a better choice. Liked the atmosphere & wine selection. We live in a small, west slope CO town with few good restaurant options, so want a great experience when in Denver.
Food and server were great but had to wait forever for our food
We’ve wanted to try BarDough for quite awhile. Finally made it. It was certainly worth the wait. I am skeptical of the presumptive nature of the evolving Denver restaurant scene. I found nothing presumptive about this experience... Really pleasant! Food was executed well with a mixture of inventiveness and mouth appeal. Our server was exceptional and quickly adapted to our expectations. At our request she chose all of our entree’s giving us a really nice crosscut of offerings. Each was brought to the table with quick and concise explanation. The table was cleaned and reset after each course. The place is comfortable and welcoming. We will certainly put it on our go again list... Nice!
Good but not worth the price. The atmosphere is cool, the location is great, the food is good but not amazing, and it’s over priced for what it is.
Bar Dough is just another new pretentious hipster restaurant in Denver.... it's getting old.
The squid ink pasta was to die for! The pizza was good too but definitely get the pasta if you like seafood.
Great food - the Italian spinach was outstanding. Really liked options for half-portions built into
Menu (e.g., small/large glass of wine, small/large pasta serving). Vibe is hip, trendy and local, also welcoming to oldie out-of-towners like us! Great evening!
I just love this restaurant - so worth the drive from Evergreen! Some of the best Italian in the city with great service, fun atmosphere and tasty Italian wine list. Already looking forward to coming back!
Food was great, server was very helpful and friendly. We weren’t in a rush, but even so, service was slow.
We went for Sunday brunch and were thrilled with our cocktails and food. Everything was delicious! Can’t wait to go back for dinner.
Overall very good. The kitchen forgot the mussels in our squid ink pasta but great service from the bartender (I forget his name) made up for it. Will definately be back.
Noise level was very loud, but that was very noticeable coming from overseas. So many things in America are loud, even when they don't need to be. Fettuccine was wonderful, as was Margharita pizza, Fancy Toast, & zucchini soup.
Everything we ate was fantastic, one the best executions of chicken I’ve ever had, perfectly prepped and cooked delightfully juicey but crispy skin, the sauce was ridiculous. The meatballs, capresse and fettuccine are all worth mentioning as well. The wine was at a great price point with plenty of variety, we had one of the chiantis and it was excellent. Cameron was knowledgeable attentive while still giving us enough space. Kudos to everyone involved.
*touch noisy and tight fit just to note but definitely not to dissuade.
Wow! Loved Bar Dough. My friend visiting from VA is a foodie and a big fan of Carrie Baird from Top Chef, so I made a reservation for the 2 of us, as well as my kids. The staff was super friendly, the food was amazing and they even offered to make a modified version of one of the pizzas for my son, without us asking, to make it more kid friendly. Cocktails were delicious, as well. Most impressive was the fact that Carrie took the time to step out of the kitchen to meet my friend and take a photo, despite it being a busy Sunday brunch. Highly recommend.
Bar Dough is a favorite restaurant for me and my wife, the service is always prompt, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is great!
Really good food and vibe. Bar is long and open kitchen is such a great look. And TV showing black and white movies of modern era is very cool. Go!
Absolutely loved the food and the vibe.
I have been here many times before and actually initially had a little issue with service in that we waited a longer than expected between salad and pizza and pasta but as I have learned to expect here was quickly corrected with compensation to our bill and our waitstaff sent the manager over to talk to us. Already booked my return visit!
We have eaten numerous dinners and brunch at BD and itg never disappoints. Thanks Chef Carrie and staff -- our 35th wedding anniversary was perfect.
High top seating not super comfortable but we were moved to the patio which was great. Food and drinks were awesome.
Bar Dough was so delicious and I enjoyed the drink that I had as well. The restaurant is very crowded and loud but the food was so good that I barely cared at all! I would definitely recommend Bar Dough.
Service was slow tonight.
Overall a good experience. Our server was on point and gave us advice on food, drinks and specials. I wasn't crazy about the appetizers (meatballs and roasted carrots) but my wife liked them. Entrees were excellent, tagliarini and pollo al limone. I'd be happy to drop in there again, it's a good place for dinner and drinks.
