Everything was very disappointing. The food took over an hour to get to our table, the portions were too small (even for a 5 star restaurant) and the waitress wouldn’t serve me a drink. The service was terrible as well, we maybe saw our waitress 3 times all night. It got to the point that I didn’t even give her a tip (which I’ve never done in my life). I was a pizza delivery man for 4 years, I know what it’s like to work for tips and I’ve always tried to be generous when I leave a tip. But I really didn’t feel that this waitress deserved to be paid for the service we got. We won’t be back.

We truly enjoyed our evening!
Of note however was the dining experience was not quite up to our expectations. Of note, my entree, the recommended pork tenderloin was dry and lacked tenderness, as were the vegetables. Due to the closeness of the tables, I/we truly did not wish to call it to others attention with management. Our server was great, but seemed to have too many tables, as I wished to have another glass of wine (which fortunately an assistant manager ) got me.
It’s the holiday season and understand the demands on the chef/kitchen and staff, we will return again.

This place is so special! My first time here was elevated by the exceptional service my boyfriend and I received. From being greeted with a huge smile at the front door to having Erin and our server Spencer answer all questions we had about the incredible wine list and food menu, our time here was truly amazing! This was definitely a dining experience we will cherish and spread to family and friends how well we were treated! We can’t wait to come dine here again! Such a gem!

This is my 1st negative review of a place, because I think reviews are often inmates running the asylum. I've been excited to eat here since we moved here. 5 dishes including dessert were weak. Salt was the overpowering ingredient throughout our evening. That is both odd and questionable. A $285 dinner for 2 should taste like VIP seats to your favorite concert at a small venue and no line when you hit the bar. Cocktails were no better. Sorry Barolo, but I hope others don't burn that kind of money for such uninspiring food. Service was great.

Last time I dined there the menu seemed a bit stale although the experience was delightful. We were pleasantly surprised that the current menu displays some inventiveness. Seems like the new ownership is changing things bit and the changes are quite nice. One last comment, the sommelier understood immediately what I was looking for and suggested two options. Her suggested selection was wonderful.

We always look forward to diner at Barolo. Food and service is consistently outstanding. Wine selections, while on the higher price side, are extensive; especially the Italian selections. Could add more Oregon Pinot Noir’s to match the quality of the current wine list!

We scheduled this place for a date night and to explore the expansive wine menu. What a great experience we had. Our server was on top of everything but most importantly, he invested his time, energy and knowledge into really making our visit enjoyable. Of course, beyond that it was great food, a great wine list that is worthy of its recognition and an overall great place. We will be going back for another date night soon.

Barolo is just outstanding. The food is exceptional. Duck is a specialty plate and never fails to please. The staff is exceptionally qualified to discuss the dishes and even the ingredients in the dishes. This is one of the top restaurants in Denver. Put it on your list.

Outstanding service...fabulous wine list...comfortably elegant ambiance...menu was exceptional and perhaps we ordered incorrectly but our choices did not meet expectations...for example, the duck entree was an overwhelming portion while the pork entree was minuscule...will go back soon and give the menu another chance because everything else was just right!

Although my expectation was too high, I was disappointed by the way foods were served especially the temperature. I could tell the plate was not warm with the steak I ordered as main course. Since it was a chilly night, the dish got cold quickly. I did see the quality of the meat was great, though. The portion of each plate was too large on all of them. We liked the service yet she did not seem to have read my note on OpenTable Reservation that says it was for my birthday until the middle of the meal. Since I have been to Europe and experienced the way they serve, I think there are a few areas of improvement at this level of the restaurant.

Barolo never disappoints. It is expensive, but worth it. The food is always outstanding and the wine list of Italian wines is the best in the Rocky Mountain region.
