We came to G & G for our son’s birthday. The service was excellent! Our food was tasty & filling!
While these things were wonderful, I felt the cost for dinner for 5 was extreme. We could have eaten at another reputable steak house for far less.

Outstanding! Jen was exceptional as our server/bartender, Connor never disappoints with the many wine suggestions and it was an ultimate pleasure to meet Jeff. I love this restaurant and have an amazing experience every time I go. I have visited the Houston location as well and look forward to going again soon.

The food was perfectly prepared and our server was so incredibly attentive to us.

The wine and the entrees were delicious and presentation was spectacular

Our server was so great too. I wish I could remember his name. He was very informative with the questions and suggestions about the menu

Well done!!

This was an impeccable experience! They truly made my birthday end on an amazing note! SHOUT OUT TO EUGENE and the rest of the team! They accommodated a 10 person party with a nicely sized high top table. It truly operated like a well oiled machine with everyone assisting and helping-we never once felt like a burden. The drinks and wine were good! The food absolutely DELICIOUS !!!!!!! With going to a place a little more expensive you expect a certain level of service. They exceeded in every category. We felt like they wanted us there and wanted our business because they gave us the best service and experience.

Our server, Ben, was terrific...top notch. Hostess tried to seat us in some back room. It was our anniversary so I requested a nice window table in the main dining room. When iI asked her can we have that table ..or that one.. pointing to several window tables vacant, she said, "No, those are reserved for larger parties." (they were 4-tops). We then watched as all three tables were seated with other parties of two rather than us. The food was good but overpriced for what it was. The side looked great on the menu but really fell short compared to the other big name steakhouses in Denver. The wagyu steak was also underwhelming and would spend the extra cash on it again. The duck confit was the best thing we had but served over risotto with beet juice...which made it "pretty" but didn't taste good...?wild mushroom risotto would be much better. The ambience was great.

Let’s me start of by saying, Jeff and his staff are beyond spectacular. They are far and away the very best we’ve ever experienced stateside. Guard & Grace has become our standard when celebrating our anniversaries and each time we go, we’re amazed, because they just keep getting better (don’t even know how they are able to improve on perfection). From getting on the books, talking to Jeff Stoltzman directly (General Mgr) with all of the pandemic’s hurdles, to working the fine dining table details (everything had to be just perfect for our 28th Anniversary), our table location, the white rose (OMG amazing), the prosecco, staff signed card - Amber absolutely knocked it out of the park for us. That’s all before we even had one bite to eat. In no way second, there’s Connor. We’ve never experienced his level of service before, 5 stars doesn’t do him justice (10 stars), from welcoming us to the table, moving chairs, helping us get settled, answering every question, making sure everything was just...Perfect!!! Now the food....you’ve truly never experienced anything like this. We are foodies and have extremely high expectations, they blew us away!!!! Again!!! We had the Alaskan Black Cod and Prime Ribeye, never tasted anything so perfectly prepared (the sides too, gnocchi, broccoli, baked potato...in a word WOW). We can’t even find the right words because there just aren’t any words for how awesome Everything !!!! was. Thank you, thank you, thank you, a million thanks to the very best team and best food ever. Troy Guard...your team has truly created something magical, the very best dining experience anyone could ever ask for .... there is no question, we will definitely be back for our 29th, 30th.......

As always, Guard and Grace did not disappoint and our server TIM was outstanding with knowledge, recommendation, help and attentiveness. I like that we are at reduced guests because the noise level was so pleasant which is not always a given at full capacity. I have been lucky enough to dine at this establishment!

It was our first true dining experience in Denver after my sister moved there and my birthday was in a week so we wanted to go somewhere nice. This place did not disappoint!! Our waitress Kayla was so wonderful and knowledgeable. The wagyu filet and black truffle Mac n cheese were to DIE for! At the end, they all signed a cute birthday card for me which was very sweet. Overall, one of my best experiences ever!!

My husbands steak had sinew in it. We were charged a COVID fee, which I am ok with but we were not told. There was no valet parking so we had to walk several blocks and my husband is handicapped.

In the past my experiences have been wonderful.
