Food and service were excellent. I accidentally left my (to go)dessert, and they called and said they would hold it for me if I wanted to come by and get it. Very thoughtful, would definitely recommend

Great tasting and presented food with a unique twist to the preparation style. With its farm-to-table approach, you know you're getting quality food prepared and presented with panache. For something different, well prepared and wholesome, I would highly recommend this restaurant. It is, however, just a little pricey, but well worth the treat.

Went initially with a group of six women. Everyone commented on the wonderful atmosphere. We could talk in normal voices and hear each other. The music and lighting were just right. Food and service were great. I went back tonight for a date night. Food was even better tonight! Music, lighting, service - everything was again wonderful.

Fooducopia exceeded our expectations on every level! From appetizers to dessert our meal was perfect! The environment was relaxed but elegant, the menu was not overwhelming with too many choices and everyone in our party of four enjoyed every aspect of the meal. We stayed from 7:30 to close and it was perfect! Service was just the right level of the present but not interruptive. We can't wait to go back.

We went to Fooducopia on a Saturday night and we could easily hear each other. Big plus! The small plate options are scrumptious and beautifully presented. I'm super picky about where I will eat out, and I have to say I look forward to eating here again when I am in the Denver Metro. The location is lovely, easy parking and quiet. If you want a relaxed meal that tastes as good as it looks, give it a go. Our server was great too. I really have no complaints, so delighted I found it!

I just love this hidden gem of a restaurant. It is centrally located in the Wash Park area finally an awesome restaurant that is not located in The Highlands of Denver!
The food is incredible. Gourmet but served in a casual atmosphere.
The service was very good and we never felt rushed.
It is a smaller intimate restaurant so reservations are important.
The outstanding dishes are the duck, rack of lamb, and the appetizers were large enough to share!

The night we went a family came with a baby and a toddler. They were quite noisy (I think babysitters were in order here) I would not bring kids to this smaller restaurant. This is not the fault of the restaurant.

I would give this a 5 star rating because the food is so.... good.

Overall ambience was pleasant and the service was great. My husband and I really wanted to love this place because it's so close to our home and we loved the concept of organic, locally source food. BUT, the most of the food fell short of what we expected. We opted for 5 small plates in order to try out the different menu items. Smoked salmon: great flavors but potato pancake could have been bigger. Ahi Tuna Crudo: again great flavors, tuna was a little gristly. Baby Fennel and orange salad: nice flavors, orange slices were very tough. In all fairness, they did try to redo dish but we declined and they took it off our bill. Caesar Steak rolls: Beautiful presentation, lettuce was tough after it was wilted, flavor was just ok. Crispy Pork Belly with wild mushroom hash: Pork belly was very dry, wild mushrooms could have been sliced smaller (a little tough when presented in large pieces), nice hash (could have used this with the smoked salmon). Would have loved to return to try the mussels but I don't think we'll be back.

Wonderful restaurant in quiet neighborhood. The atmosphere is low-key and comfortable. Our service was excellent and well timed. Our food was absolutely delicious! My Husband had at the lamb chops. They were perfectly cooked and presented with a mound of delicious vegetables All beautifully presented on a cutting board.
My duck on top of brussels sprouts layered over a Cauliflower mash was wonderful. I particularly loved the cauliflour mash and would eat Cauliflour every day if it was like that. My daughter had a simple burger that was also excellent with house made french fries. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would love to come back again… And again… And again

My boyfriend and I went for Denver restaurant week. Every dish that we had was outstanding. I ate the lamb and curry sweet potatoes - danced through the entire meal. Its a very quite place, which is nice but also makes you think twice before telling a funny story. Great place for a calm, delicious evening. Hope to go back soon.

Food was really good but service was rushed to the point of rude. The waitress insisted on clearing a plate if one person was done eating even if the rest of our party was still eating, which of course they were.

Met a friend for dinner and had forgotten it was the start of Denver Restaurant Week. Options were great. A lot of food! Smoked mushrooms with lemon ricotta to start. Short rib over pasta with peas and mint was yummy & berry pavlova was perfect! Snow coming down with almost 6 inches accumulation in 3 hours but my friend and I enjoyed coffee and shared a second dessert of Mocha Chocolate Pot de Creme. Yummy and enjoyable evening for sure! Looking forward to going back to try other things on the regular menu.

We agree with supporters who think this is a quiet, friendly neighborhood gem with good, locally-sourced food. It is.

We also agree with detractors who think the timing/pacing can be off, even during quiet periods. It can.

Knowing that, it's still a worthwhile visit. The menu seems to have grown and become a bit less adventurous, but has something for everyone. Our beef tartare was sort of weird: too many onions and capers, and a bit acidic. Seared duck breast was more successful. Service and management is pleasant and relaxed. And at dinner time, the place is quiet to the point of being somnambulant.

And that is my biggest issue - the lack of energy. They have experimented with various market/takeout concepts, perhaps it's time for a small wine bar or something to draw a few folks off of Gaylord earlier in the evening? Lots of potential here, it just feels like the concept needs a bit more tuning.

Best thing I can say about the place is that it was very quiet, so we could talk to each other. Menu is very limited. Food looked very nice, but much of what was served to us was different that the detailed description on the menu, without prior disclosure. That is inexcusable. Plates were either overly large, or too small so food fell off as we tried to cut it. Nothing was bad, but nothing was good enough to justify the very high prices. Would not return or recommend to anyone for occasion.

The food here is always good, but in the many times we've been here, the service has always been off, and the timing of the kitchen is poor. The last time we were there, two of us got our appetizers, then 10 minutes later the other 2 arrived, and then dinner came ten minutes after (way too early). This time, three of us got our appetizers, we sat waiting for ten minutes, and finally the server came over. We figured out that she had completely forgotten one appetizer. 6 or 7 minutes later, the 4th app came, and all of us ate our appetizers. 10 minutes later, dinner arrived, and the salmon ("HOT PLATE") was quite overcooked. They had clearly started cooking it too early, and served it anyway. It is really too bad, because the food here is always fresh, tasty, and well priced, if it is not too cold or too hot from bad service or bad timing. We therefore only come here for very casual meals with close friends, because we can put up with the problems, and not let them ruin the dining experience.

Fooducopia is a gem of a restaurant in Wash Park. My husband and I like to order two entrees and share. The server asked if we wanted it split and we said yes. At first, when she placed the grilled rack of lamb in front of me, I thought that she forgot to split the order. No, she did not forget...the portions are that generous! I highly recommend the lamb and the pan seared duck breast which we shared. Everything was cooked to perfection. We had a leisurely dinner with friends. (You can actually make a meal out of the small plates.) We finished off our dinner with the white chocolate mousse and flourless chocolate torte. The wait staff was very attentive.
(I have to mention how clean and spacious the restrooms are.)

Kudos to locally sourced food and locally owned restaurants!

Did I mention that Fooducopia is also a great place to host a private party for about forty people?

Love Fooducopia!
