We tried a little bit of everything! Their chefs pick charcuterie board was delicious, we had a wine I'd never tried before (Barbera) and it was great! Chocolate desserts were well paired with wine, and deliciously decadent. Ambiance is date friendly, service is friendly and down-to earth, and decor is gorgeous and mostly handmade. Will definitely visit again! More

We had an early dinner before Hamilton. It could not have been more lovely. The room was quiet, with space between tables so it was easy to hold a conversation. The service was impeccable, yet comfortable, at once formal and informal. The food was absolutely wonderful. Our server was careful to get us in and out in plenty of time to make the performance. It was just a terrific dining experience. More

We don't go out to dinner that often anymore and so when we do we need a place that can give us something we can't recreate at home. This place is top notch. Our waiter was fantastic and knew the entire wine list. The mussels were superb, although there weren't a ton of them. We had the short rib and scotish salmon and I don't have a single complaint. Their chef knows what she's doing. Thanks for a great evening. Cheers. More

We wanted to try everything on the menu! We ended up sharing appetizers of shrimp, the cheese plate, olives and potato skins. The potato skins weren't what you would picture. They were soft, elegant and delicious. The shrimp were served with a freshly chopped relish. The cheese plate has three cheeses that were so flavorful along with nuts, dried fruit and I think a marmalade spread. The olives were assorted and abundant. We had a nice bottle of wine to top it off. Overall, it was wonderful. The manager, Brian made us feel very welcome. I would recommend this restaurant and will make sure to return when we make it back to Denver!! More

So getting to me just let me say when I order my food it’s lie I’m dictating a dam prescription. I do not like anything spicy I grew up in an Irish Catholic home in New York and the only spice we ever had was salt and pepper and trust me that was more for company. The sever was great he took my older and didn’t make me feel like I was crazy which obviously I am. My food came out and it was perfect just the way I wanted it.

We were surprised it was in a new location and disappointed that they had changed the menu. This had been the only place in Denver that we had been able to find okonomiyaki, and it was really good okonomiyaki. It is no longer on the menu, though they made it for us because we asked about it. I really hope they put it back on the menu. This is one thing that made Soko different than any other Korean barbecue/sushi restaurant More

We pride ourselves on sourcing local purveyors for a variety of our ingredients, as well as our wines and bar items, too.

We had an early dinner before Hamilton. It could not have been more lovely. The room was quiet, with space between tables so it was easy to hold a conversation. The service was impeccable, yet comfortable, at once formal and informal. The food was absolutely wonderful. Our server was careful to get us in and out in plenty of time to make the performance. It was just a terrific dining experience. 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.
