Contemporary French | Downtown / LoDo, Denver

Don't get fooled by an ambiance rhat could make this place looking like another downtown restaurant. Pay attention to the details from the glasses of your cocktail to the mismatching silverware (very Feench bistrò), and this is when you realize this is not just a new venue. My drink was a perfect balance of herbal flavors and saltiness and sweetness. But is when the food arrives that the music begins to play. Earthy notes from the Camargue, the floreal touch of Provence, the sea in front of Maraeille are on your table. Everything beautifully re-interpreted by the Chef to give a new touch to the classic French Style. Kudos to the staff. Discreet and available, and probably one of the rare cases in which your server can describe exactly what you are going to have. Portions are reasonably sized given the richness of the recipes. More

They also have their drink menu on an iPad which they only had a few of. So every time I wanted to order a drink the server had to go find an iPad before I could order.

I'm not sure how long courier. has been open and serving guests, but my date and I got the sense that it hasn't been long. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable, even if service was a little clunky. I see a lot of potential as the staff finds their groove. The restaurant was nearly empty at 5:00pm on a Friday, so we had the opportunity to appreciate the elegant and modern, yet warm design. The decor still stands out in my memory. Our happy hour cocktails were creative and our meals were quite delicious. I thought the menu was curated very well; few but thoughtful and purposeful options. My date wanted more choices, but was ultimately beyond satisfied with his entree. Overall, the entire experience was a testament to quality over quantity. More

American | Downtown / LoDo, Denver

We ate here before a show at the Bellco. Yes, service was a little slow but it was still good enough to get to the show on time. The best thing was the food! We had the Cobb salad with added chicken and the southwest burger with yucca fries. Everything was delicious. My burger cooked perfectly cooked medium. Get the yucca fries they are fabulous. It was so nice that out server was very appreciative that we were locals and that we were very happy with the food. So even though it in the loony of a hotel, I would eat here again if I had something at the Bellco. More

We had a great experience at Cantina Laredo prior to a night at DCPA. I was pretty stressed out being 30 minutes late for our reservation (horrible traffic getting into DCPA parking!). But the host was very understanding and showed us right to our table. After informing our server of our showtime she bent over backwards making sure we were in and out in time for the show while still delivering warm and friendly service. Dinner was great -loved the guacamole and the Carne Asada. The check was promptly delivered and picked up. We made it to the theatre with time to spare! Hopefully next time we’ll have more time to linger. More

Very good service and nice food; especially for a hotel restaurant- we ate here for convenience as our customers were staying at the hotel. Overpriced is the only negative I’d mention. Very nice place overall. 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.
