This is by far the best restaurant we’ve dined at in Colorado. Everything just kept getting better! The quality of service and food was absolutely unmatched. No stone was left unturned in terms of time and effort with preparing and serving our food. We felt like royalty! We couldn’t believe how well prepared and delicious the scallops, octopus, lobster roll and steak were. You have to try the hand made gnocchi! Sous Chef Travis prepared the most phenomenal dishes- all we will never forget. Our server, Ben, was fantastic. We can’t give this restaurant enough praise. We can’t wait to come back. 10/10!!

It's not just your common beautiful restaurant with basic food. THE FOOD AT GUARD AND GRACE IS EXTRAORDINARY!! You're doing a disservice to yourself if you don't go.

We love Guard & Grace and I absolutely love my regular order of octopus, hamachi and gnocchi. But the steaks always disappoint me! Last time it was the Wagyu that left me upset and this time it was the prime ribeye - I’m definitely going back for my apps but hopefully next time the steak will not be chewy!

Justin was our waiter he gave us suggestions on food and we were not disappointed. We started with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and east coast oysters. The best service everything was cleaned the second we were finished and replaced for the next course. My favorite was the sticky toffee cake desert. Will definitely be back my new favorite spot! Music was great too might as well of been my own playlist.

We dined based on the recommendation of a friend and were extremely pleased with the entire meal. They have a great steak selection and a diverse menu too. The wedge salad was fantastic as were the dinner rolls with mustard butter. The chef made a special request for us too. Connor our server was incredibly attentive. The wine list was great even for wine by the glass. We will definitely return.

We had been to Guard and Grace two years ago and loved it then. We loved it even more this time. Service was delightful and the food outstanding.
We had the octopus and the crab cakes as appetizers, the New York Wagyu beef with truffled mac and cheese and the pistachio dessert. Really delicious.

Ambience is nice. The food was delicious. The small steak that some ordered didn’t look appealing on the plate. It’s looked charred aka burnt. The charcoal look is what they were going for tho. Never the less I enjoyed the food. I would recommend and or go back.

Guard & Grace
Responded on February 11, 2021

Hi TiffanyO. Thank you for the review. We definitely are not going for that look and it seems that your steak was charred. Our wood burning grill adds a great flavor but there shouldn't be a burnt look to any of our steaks, and for that we apologize. Please reach out to us directly.
