Italian | Downtown / LoDo, Denver

This place has been my favorite for 10+ years for good reason. The food is always phenomenal, and the service is great - not overly in your face, but the servers are always knowledgeable in menu items and suggestions. I have always loved the ambience - cozy basement location with exposed brick, high-backed booths, and the quirky wallpaper in the bathrooms. The one complaint I have about this particular visit is that despite making a reservation and marking it as a "special occasion," we were seated at a table for 2 on the long banquette between two other tables. Being a Monday night, I can't imagine there were a lot of other reservations made, so I would expect to be seated at a better table rather than shoved in next to other people who had most likely just popped over after work or yoga. It would have been nice to have been seated at a more intimate table (a booth, or even at the very end of the banquette against the wall) as we were celebrating our recent marriage. All in all, though, my new husband was impressed with the whole experience (food, service, atmosphere, value) and we will definitely return for special occasions in the future. More

I love this place. When i’m denver (from carbondale) i stop there because of both its creative (and deliscious) menu and because the bartender is always up for creating a drink from my rudimentary objectives. The first time i was there i had the best cocktail i’ve ever had. (I still think about it.) And the last time i was there i had an equaly interesting couple of on the spot created drinks. It was a crap shoot to try 12@Madison because like most restaurants in denver, i hadnt heard of it. I lucked out. That it sits in a quiet neighborhood is a plus. I’m liking quiet right now. More

Afternoon Tea | Downtown / LoDo, Denver

Recently hauled myself downtown for afternoon tea at the Brown Palace. LOVE the atmosphere and the service is phenomenal, but the food itself was meh. The chocolate scone was super dry and unappetizing; the pastries, while pretty, were flavorless and not worth the caloric intake. Chef would do well to study afternoon tea menus (in person, by eating them) in New York, the South, and U.K. Perhaps I am spoiled, but at the Brown Palace, one should be spoiled! I left a lot of the food behind, which is awful, because I was starved. Tea sandwiches were good, and the tea itself was delicious. Love the piano player, service and atmosphere, but food itself needs a lot of work IMHO. xo More

I arrived a little early so he suggested I relax at the bar while he finished setting up. They have a nice selection of drinks and food for Happy Hour which goes until 6.30. Our book club actually discusses the book and the great part was we not enjoyed the discussion, we had great food, drinks and service. On a side note, there was a wedding taking place in the courtyard so we got a little entertainment too. I highly recommend The Lobby for date night, get together with friends or just to hang. Thanks to everyone there for making our meeting so much fun. More

This was exactly the experience I was looking for! Was my first time having Indian food here in Denver and I was not at all disappointed. The staff was so friendly and seated us very quickly. They took our food and drink orders incredibly promptly. When our food came and the table was looking a little crowded, they encouraged us to move to a bigger table, even though that would mean more work for them, as they would have to bus our original table. The food was excellent and came out very authentically, in little share style pots, each with their own spoon. A side of rice came included as well, which was perfect for soaking up sauce. I ate half my dish and still had plenty to take home, which made a great dinner the next day. Would definitely recommend and will be back! More

We came to Harry’s during a getaway weekend in Denver. My wife had the filet mignon and I had duck confit. They were both excellent, and our server was great. We would both recommend Harry’s. More

We absolutely love this place! Both salsas that are served prior to your meal arr the best salsas we've ever had! Chicken enchiladas are a must! You won't be disappointed! Margaritas are always so tasty and worth the money because you can tell there's a bit of alcohol in them. (Not a rip off) This is our go to for special occasions and we highly recommend it!!! More

The restaurant was completely empty except for us when we got there, so it was nice and quiet and we could take our time with our lunch. My burger and fries were delicious and cooked perfectly, and my friend's fish and chips were also very good. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and thought it was a great pre-theater lunch option. More

Met a former colleague for dinner. Happy hour was loud, but by 7:00 the noise level was just right. The charcuterie plate was wonderful, and both of us enjoyed our scallops. I had the sorbet, which was tangy and just right. Wonderful, down to earth, attentive but not obtrusive service. Also found a wine rated 90 in Wine Spectator, so had to have that third glass. No, I didn't drive. More

Discover Denver

Located just an hour’s drive from the trifecta of ski resorts—Aspen, Vail and Breckenridge—and nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains; Denver is scaling the ranks of the country’s most desirable places to live. And while Colorado’s capital city is a world class hub of winter recreations, a booming restaurant scene is on the rise, too. Brunch waits now rival those of its coastal counterparts. Sounds a little weird given Denver’s land-locked nature, but sushi is also popular here. Downtown, you’ll find Italian Trattorias, sprawling beer gardens, and a slew of coffee shops that range from pour over bars to laid-back, locals-only spots. Larimer Square forms the heart of downtown’s historic district and houses upscale restaurants fit for special occasions. On the outskirts of town, Red Rocks Amphitheater draws festival crowds for its outdoor acoustics and epic views.
