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

Great food, great service. Would recommend for date night. Staff is knowledgeable about their wines, a rare find in Denver or the U.S. in general. More

Food was amazing. Great ambiance, I recommend doing the shared plates. Get a piece of everything. Skewers, scallops, Korean fried chicken, also don't forget dessert. 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.
