We had a small booth in the balcony that was perfect for viewing the live bluegrass performed on the stage below us. The server was prompt, polite, knew his menu and was ready with suggestions.

Overall the food was okay, but not outstanding. The quality of the farm to table ingredients was good (fresh greens, broccoli,etc.), but some of the dishes were lacking or light on key ingredients (cashews, fresh ginger, lemongrass, etc.) or the ingredients used were a cheap or inferior substitute (mushroom and pepper choices, for instance). The music choice was baffling and the service was inattentive. On the bright side, the restaurant is in a nice and airy space on a charming stretch of Larimer. More

The Lobby has now become my new favorite place! We came for dinner for the first time last night and was so excited we did! We started with the loaded green chili fries after reviewing options forever (too many yummy things, we couldn’t decide). The pork green chili has so much flavor! The way the fries were shaped allowed them to have a nice crunch on the outside but soft and oh so yummy on the inside. Next I moved on to the chicken fried sausage gravy and biscuits for my dinner. It was perfection. I could have ate the gravy on just about anything but the tots and mashed potatoes, chicken and fried egg went perfectly. The restaurant was very quite for dinner which was awesome to be downtown and not fighting the loud crowds to have a conversation. All the gentleman working took great care of us. Our waiter gave us many recommendations and a little history about the place which was awesome! We will be back to experience the craziness they call brunch some weekend (I hear they get really busy) since this is now my new favorite!!! More

I was hoping for a good meal and an enjoyable evening. My expectations were surpassed; our water, Phil, was helpful, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable; the food, including Phil’s recommendations, was excellent. We tried the octopus, the charcuterie plate, short ribs, fettuccine, a pork dish and the duck. All were prepared and presented exquisitely. 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.
