Service was very slow. Sat 30 minutes before we even ordered drinks. Ambience was also bad, we sat right under a bright spot light. It was terrible. They need to do something about lighting.

Very good food. With the right choice, it can be healthy. Choices are always available. They were very good at special considerations like dressing on the side, small amount of fat to cook meal or meat an allergy need. Good vegetables. wonderful bread! Good house wines. Servers are fun and entertaining as well as efficient. Highly recommend.

Went for the first time on Saturday night. The waiter was wonderful. The atmosphere was very casual, but the food was good. Wish they had a good Eggplant Parmesan, cooled correctly . The eggplant served was tough, but creative. Feels like a place that should have good foundation dishes as well as the creative ones. The crusty bread was very good. Wold like some oil to go with it. My husband's seafood pasta was good.

What a great meal we had on Saturday! First off, the focaccia bread with the giardiniera dip is ridiculously good! We had the white bean soup as a shared starter along with salads. For entrees, my husband had the short rib special, and I had the wonderful half chicken dinner - which is truly a gem. We had a bottle of wine from the nicely priced list along with the delicious nutella mud pie to stuff us fully. Don't let the strip mall location fool you - this place is going into our regular rotation.

It was 10 degrees outside, snowing and icy so we were not sure there would be other diners out. At Farro's, the tables were full and turned over while we were there. It is a destination for an amazing experience. There is a wonderful giardiniera as a starter, delightful appetizers (lobster ravs!) and excellent entrees. I am still thinking about the 4 bite panna cotta desert. The service was attentive, the staff were friendly and pleasant. It was a memorable meal in a warm and welcoming environment and we will be back soon.

We got a last minute reservation, but for early evening. The place was already hoping as it was during the holidays. We weren’t disappointed and our dinner turned out to be great! It was cold outside, so we had their white bean soup, pizza and refreshments. The soup is sooooo good and was finished w olive oil & Italian parsley, which pares well with the fresh bread they serve. We also enjoyed the fig/arugula/prosciutto pizza which has just a touch of sweetness. It a very interesting combination. Drink prices are very reasonable. Incredible food tucked into small corner mall. Don’t change a thing!

Been to Farro many times before. Been good experience all around before. Went for my husband’s birthday dinner with family. Never been so rushed at a restaurant before. Was pathetic service. Not to go back unless someone else is buying. What a waste of time and money.!!! I mean rushed to get out of there in 1 1/2 hours!! Not relaxing at all.

Best food in Denver Metro area. Best lamb shank I have ever had. Matthew Franklin is the best. Long time staff - that says a lot. All are really good, except for waiter Adam. His service is not bad, but his manner is rude, abrupt, and condescending. If we happen to get stuck with him, every time it has a significant negative impact on what otherwise would be a great dining experience.

Food was extraordinary as always. Seems a little pricey for some things, but very reasonable for others. And superb quality overrides price, so it is a non issue. Had one of same waiters as previously - somewhat rude, but not such as would dissuade our going back. Overall, one of Denver's best. I will go back until I cannot.

Farro continues to be my family's go-to dinner spot. They have a great mix of regular menu items that are consistently delicious and specials that are creative and also delicious. We love the chicken marsala, sea bass, salmon, and pizzas (and more) from the regular menu, but have a hard time resisting the special menu items.

We feel like we are eating with friends when we are there. The service is uniformly friendly and accommodating - I don't want to mention names for fear of leaving someone out!
