Quite pricey with few options for a less expensive meal. Also, one the women in the group ordered an appetizer with, I believe, tuna in it but no where on the menu did it mention the tuna was raw. That kind of information should be disclosed.

It's a pretty space, and I've enjoyed work-related events there in the past, but for a Friday night, the place was pretty dead. And for the price, the food was good, but not amazing. Service was too fast. What was the rush? There were only about three tables in use in the dining room. And the hosts totally ignored us on the way out. I think they were bored, too.

My favorite go-to place for salmon. The Three Forks Blackened Salmon Salad is my very favorite dish there. The first time I had it, it was a special & was not an item on the menu. I was happy to find out that I could order it anytime I wanted. My friend has special dietary needs & our server was excellent at accommodating her needs & suggesting substitutes. We were served quickly which accommodates a lunch hour. The restaurant was quiet enough so we could talk & catch up. Always love going there especially for lunch!

I had a party of five and we all enjoyed the food. I had asked for a round table in a quiet section of the restaurant. We got a round table in the middle of the room and it was so noisy we couldn't hear each other talk, which was very disappointing! Everything else was good.

Excellent service and high-quality food. This is one of my lunch-time favorites in the DTC.

Our waitress was very helpful and cheery. The food was expensive, but well worth it. We ordered off the Colorado menu - Bison and the steaks. The salad with local greens was wonderful. the sides were outstanding as well. I was treating a family member from out of town and she was very impressed.

Just to start off, I don’t usually write reviews, however, I always read them! Being a little selfish, I am a little hesitant to write this review for Cool River as they may start booking up for events and workshops and I won’t be able to get my company in for the dates I need! But that being said, I am writing this review because we have been so pleased with everything and everyone that I just have to do this! Last year we did one workshop towards the end of the year and this year we have done three workshops and two more on the calendar with Cool River. Booking workshops with Cool River has been so pleasant. Shelby, Julie and Carrie are wonderful! I can’t say enough nice things about them, they are very personable and professional. The workshops have been stress free as the managers and staff take pride in making sure everything and every detail has been taken care of to our satisfaction. They always go above and beyond for us and that has been one of many factors why we book with them for all our workshops. As soon as we start setting up our check in table, the head server always comes and makes sure we have everything we need and goes over the evening agenda with us to make sure all the servers and wait staff are on the same page with us. We always have Aisland, the restaurant manager come by and check in with us and make sure everything is satisfactory and we have had Craig the General Manager also check in with us to make sure we're happy. That's one aspect of our experience, the other aspect is, of course, the food! We have had the dinners served buffet style as well as sit down dinners, to mix it up for our repeat clients-and the food has been wonderful! Our clients always comment how excellent the food is and what a pleasant experience it is. So that makes it a win-win experience for all of us and that's the experience we want for our clients and prospective clients to have!

Amazing food, service and staff! Had a misadventure with Groupon but this location of Cool River more than made up for it. We will happily return to the Denver tech location.

I am there pretty regularly because of the high consistency of the food quality and service. Great job
