The food was excellent and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Our waiter was quite aggressive, loud and seemed to be in a big hurry. He interrupted our conversation frequently and rushed our various courses to the table before we were ready. I've not experienced such service in a fine restaurant before.

Entrees were excellent but choice was limited and most dishes were too elaborate for my liking. Really, traditional Italian should include some standards like a normal Caesar salad, calamari, cioppino, linguini and clams, etc. When I can’t order a Caesar and spaghetti and meatballs, and I’m paying $150, I’m disappointed. I’m a regular but not so much anymore until the menu changes.

Not our best experience at Barolo. We went for our anniversary dinner. Got seated in the outside room which is not nearly as nice as the main room with the fireplace. We were seated by the front window so it was cold and drafty, my wife never took off her down coat. Our waiter was very good, but seemed to be very stressed out and under a lot of pressure, as all the staff seemed to be. He helped us choose a wine. Someone else came to pour the wine- said they were out of the one our waiter recommended, he brought another one which was more expensive and our waiter had told us wasn't as good. It was average at best. Later, when our waiter came back to pick up our salad plates, he knocked over my wife's full glass of wine on the floor and it shattered by our table. Again, it felt like he was very stressed and hurried. We had several other wait staff deliver different dishes, it felt a bit chaotic.
Our waiter was very apologetic about the breaking the wine glass, and took $20 off the price of the bottle, which was very fair.
The food was nice, the kitchen at Barolo is consistent and very good. For these kind of prices, however, I would want a much more comfortable experience, with a calmer feeling and a warmer atmosphere.
Might come back for happy hour sometime and have snacks at the bar, which is in the nice room. But I don't think I would blow a large wad for dinner again, even for a special occasion. There are other places in Denver that have good Italian for less money and much more comfortable feeling.

This was our first time to Barolo and it certainly won't be our last. It is now our #1 favorite restaurant in all on Denver and one of our top favorites in the USA. The service was impeccable. The food was incredible. The wines were magnificent. The ambiance was lovely.

Overall a great experience due to the outstanding customer service. It started with the valet parking and then our coat check, and this continued with meal and waiting staff. Our waitress was Missy and she was fabulous. Missy was extremely knowledgeable on the food and wine options. We can’t wait to go back.

The chef and staff doing an excellent job presenting some very nice and unique Italian food. I'm Italian and like most Italians, you think you can prepare the best Italian meals. I can't compete with their talents they're on another level and I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends. It's a great place to experience an enjoyable, tasty meal with a friendly staff. I know we'll be going back it's worth the drive.

The food...what there was of it...was excellent. However, the portions were very small. Little did I know that when the menu indicated "caramelized Brussels sprout," it meant exactly that. Singular. One. Brussels. sprout. The dish was artfully arranged, but frankly, I'd much rather have a side of Brussels sprouts and a side of roasted potatoes rather than use them simply as decoration. I left hungry.

All the food was wonderfully made and presented. The risotto con aragosta was simply amazing. The service was wonderful and our server went above and beyond to make sure that our first time to Barolo was impressive. He made suggestions not only on food and wine but how both my date and I could order so we could each get to taste everything we wanted. This restaurant will be one I return to make an occasion special.

Great food but unlike anytime in the past, terrible and awful service. Almost 30 minutes before we were served water. Combine a bad attitude with slow service and it makes for a bad dinner even though the food was great

We had a nice meal at Barolo Grill. Especially good were the salad of mixed greens and grapefruit, the foie gras appetizer, and the amazing desserts we shared.

A couple down sides...the amberjack with the smokey oil was more smokey oil than amberjack. The flavor of the spinach pasta was dark and monochromatic. My veal was tough and the presentation was unimaginative.

To be fair, my guest loved his snapper.

And to be more fair, the foie gras appetizer was by itself worth the trip. The presentation was lovely, and the citrus elements were perfect.

All this said, I recommend Barolo. It has a rarely found energy, just the right enthusiasm of fellow diners, but still quiet enough for an intimate conversation. It was a most enjoyable meal.

We each had two glasses of wine and a glass of port and the bill was $277 plus tip.
