    All in all an uninspiring meal - especially when considering over $700 for 4. Not a bad meal just not up to reputation nor my expectations for a top restaurant that I spent a lot on.

    Always a favorite for special occasions. Barolo never disappoints. Fabulous cuisine - even food that I don't typically care for tastes heavenly here. Huge list of wine by the glass at all price points, and the best service of any restaurant I have ever been to. Thank you, Ryan and staff!

    I wanted to have a fine dining experience for my birthday. This totally fit the bill. We wanted to try a lot of different dishes and Barolo Grill not only had amazing quality of Italian food, but had very flexible options for portion sizes. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Our waiter, Seth, was so knowledgeable about wines and food options and made the whole night very special. I would definitely come here again!

    Barolo GrillResponded on March 13, 2020So wonderful to hear! We love hearing that our staff knocked it out of the park and Seth greatly appreciates your kind words! The next time you are thinking about fine dining we would love to have you back, happy belated birthday and thank you so much for celebrating with us!

    Good food / cool location. Hostess way too high strung. We were running late and called to let the restaurant to let them know well in advance of our time. We were accommodated but only under very strict terms and we had under one hour to eat which the hostess reminded of us continuously. Great food and service was really good, but a lot of restaurants in town like that - we will not go back anytime soon due to the hostess experience.

    Barolo GrillResponded on February 29, 2020Thank you for your feedback, my apologies the hostess came off a bit too intense. On busy weekend nights we only have a small bit of wiggle room for reservations to be late. We can happily accommodate reservations to be late up to 30 minutes past their reservation time, however, past that point, it could impede on another guest or party that arrives on time for their reservation.Hopefully this makes sense, and we will work on communicating particulars more effectively to our guests in the future

    We were in a private room, so the noise level was much lower than in the main restaurant. The food was amazing and the service was also excellent. Unbeknownst to most of the room, my son had a time that he needed to leave for his next activity, and didn't get to eat his entree. Maybe the server could ask if anyone had any time constraints? It might not have helped given the realities of corralling an 18 year old for a family event. Also, to be fair, none of the rest of us thought to ask him about that, so we're all guilty, but it was unfortunate. The rest of the evening was amazing!

    Very good experience overall. Food was delicious, wine was delicious. The waitstaff was busy, and there were times when we were waiting longer than desired to make an order or ask for something. But when they were at our table they were very attentive, considerate, and very helpful. Great help picking out a good Italian wine. Recommendations on the menu were spot-on, and their descriptions matched the taste (in our opinion). We ordered too much food; my fiance and I ordered the calamari appetizer to split, each got a salad, each got a half-order of pasta (pesto gnocchi and lamb tortellini, both delicious!), and then we ordered the duck and the lamb, so we could have a taste of each. I thought the lamb was wonderful, and the duck was very good. We were stuffed and had left-overs (the duck comes with hefty side portions). We probably wouldn't do the appetizer with all that again. It was good, but you do get a lot of calamari to split between 2 people. I requested a table "near the fireplace", and they did accommodate this. Although, beggars can't be choosers, and they put us to the side of the fireplace. Now, this DID accommodate my request, but I would recommend saying "in front of the fireplace", as we were very to-the-side of the fireplace, and felt like we were in a dark corner (at least I did). The back table I did not care for, and would request not to be sat there again.

    Deservedly wins acclaim, awards and most of all, full houses on a nightly basis (well, except Sunday and Monday when they are closed). From the first bite of their amazing homemade bread sticks to the last food item, it's truly perfect. The wine list, their speciality, is fairly priced and at over 100 pages, "somewhat" extensive. But much like the food, don't let that throw you: they'll be happy to guide you through it, for your palate and budget. Half-portions? Of course! Split plates? You bet. Lots of restaurants prepare great food in Denver these days (a wonderful thing) but few master the art of service as does Barolo Grill. And if you think I work for them, I don't, never have but I wouldn't mind if they took me along on their Annual Staff Trip to Italy!

    This was a real joy. I really liked the ability to order the pasta in 1/4 size plates. The lamb was delicious. The waiter was very friendly and the ambiance was very comfortable with the tables spaced well apart. A very happy staff and I ordered the wine pairing with the tasting menu. The pours were very generous. Can’t believe I have lived here for so long and hadn’t gone for so long.

    Barolo GrillResponded on February 26, 2020Don't worry Christian you are in good company! Still amazes us that many lifelong residents of Denver have never joined us for a meal! We are just thrilled that you decided to come and see us when you did.

    There are so many new restaurants to try in the Denver area that I haven’t been back here for a while. Now I’m wondering why. The menu is much more creative than your typical Italian restaurant and everything we tried from antipasto to dessert was superb. This plus The fact that the tables are generously spaced and the waitstaff are very professional and charming makes for a perfect evening.

    We enjoyed Barolo Grill very much. We enjoyed most of the wine selections we were given but would of enjoyed more for the cost a little bit larger proportions. This is coming from a guy that doesn’t normally drink a lot of wine. My date loved it very much as did I. Thanks!
