Really appreciated the portion size that didn't leave me taking leftovers home and feeling heavy. This gave me and my partner an opportunity to sample 2 small bites on the menu before our entree. Flora and Fauna cocktail is lovey! Tartare to fish to pasta cooked perfectly and didn't rely on heavy butter or oils for flavor. Instead, creative purees and accents blended to tasty flavor. We will be back! More

Ate before show at DCPA. Prefix theater menu offered a nice variety. Bone-in rib-eye was seasoned and cooked just right. Sticky toffee pudding was the best I have had. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive, with the manager spending a good deal of time visiting with us. The proximity to the theater is great, only a block away. Their free valet parking for dinner and the show was an extra benefit. More

Fabulous food (Lamb Chops particularly); 100s of Russian and other international vodkas; lots of Russian dishes; and service was particularly pleasant. The noise level was high, but it was St. Patrick's Day and this is understandable. Definitely we will enjoy again when we are in Denver. Best restaurant from our standpoint in Denver! More

The garlic knot was delicious, the Burata not so much. The presentation was lacking and it was not creamy but rather hard and tasteless. The pickled greens seemed to be out of place on the plate. The two pastas (Cashew Pesto and the Spaghetti with King Crab) absolutely delicious. We had (2) deserts Donuts (dry and had a weird taste) and Chocolate Tartufo (dry and no chocolate taste what so ever). Nicely decoratated restaurant and our server was lovely. More

We had a fantastic night at Hapa. I took my boo to celebrate his new job, and had to choose carefully as he is a chef and his standards are rather high! Our waiter, Alex I believe his name is, was fabulous. He suggested the perfect Saki, was very friendly yet professional. Ultimately he helped us order two delicious Omakase that we loved. We sent the chef a glass of Saki as a thank you. All of this experience was reasonably priced, and as an added oddity, I am a vegetarian (I do not eat fish) and I absolutely loved the food. Grab your homie, your bae, your friends, and go have a lovely sushi night. I suggest sitting upstairs or out on the sidewalk patio. -Hollis More

We were visiting from Atlanta and wanted to go out for a nice dinner while we were here. We were blown away by some of the most incredible food and service we have ever had. (And that's saying something because we all work in the industry) Chef Chris Sanders blew us away with a beautiful 5 course meal that left us arguing over which course was the best. The drinks were perfect compliments to the food, and the service was exactly what we wanted. This will be a stop every time we come to Denver. More

We love Sunday brunch at the Brown Palace. It’s our annual tradition for my husband’s birthday, and every year we look forward to it weeks in advance. And yet, it never seems to disappoint. The seafood is lovely, the champagne flows, the bacon is exceptional and the atmosphere is both fancy and fun. We’ve always had great service, and we love the live music. The dessert section is ridiculously good, almost overwhelming (but if you are gonna be overwhelmed, it should be by dessert). It’s our annual glutinous adventure and we have no regrets! More

Contemporary American | Downtown / LoDo, Denver

Really appreciated the portion size that didn't leave me taking leftovers home and feeling heavy. This gave me and my partner an opportunity to sample 2 small bites on the menu before our entree. Flora and Fauna cocktail is lovey! Tartare to fish to pasta cooked perfectly and didn't rely on heavy butter or oils for flavor. Instead, creative purees and accents blended to tasty flavor. We will be back! More

This is a wonderful restaurant. My Filet was a little overcooked, but I can look beyond that because everything else was perfect. Desserts were wonderful. Will go back ! More

We eat out 100+ times a year, and try 30+ new places a year. I comment less than 5% of the time. All three courses were “lick the plate clean” wonderful. 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.
