A contemporary take on a high end steak house. Excellent food and ambiance but everything has a subtle, unique, and pleasing twist.

Date night with my spouse on a Friday evening with a 5:30pm reservation. From the moment we were seated we felt "rushed" by our server. Within 10 minutes of being seated our sever was at our table four times! Not sure if he was new? He didn't have full knowledge of the menu and must of been having a off night! The restaurant is awesome and ambiance is spot on.... best steak ever!

Everything was outstanding, as usual! We had Brian for the second time as our server and he is just wonderful. My boyfriend and I visit Guard and Grace for special occasions and they always knock it out of the park.

Overall the food was incredible. It’s expensive, but you get what you pay for. My gripe on the service end was not due to a bad experience during the meal. Service during the meal was great. However, my leftovers were not packed up. Per my request. I had about 30% of my steak left. The next morning I discover this and was very upset after spending $600 on dinner. The music was on the loud side. But did not ruin the experience.

our waiter was not very friendly, didn't smile, asked if we had any questions and then seemed bothered when we asked-kind of stiff and robotic. steak came out rare when I asked for medium. asked for brussel sprouts for appetizers but told me it would come out "later" with the meal...not real good....

Our first experience at Guard & Grace was great. Everything we ordered from appetizers to main dishes were absolutely delicious. (Short Rib, Dry Aged Prime Rib, Brussels Sprouts, Foraged Mushrooms, Steak Tartar, Couturier board). Our waitress was a little slow and didn't spend any time talking through the menu, but I will give her the benefit of the doubt. In any case, great experience and will definitely go back soon.

Best restaurant in Denver... Wonderful waiters, fun atmosphere, great tables, AMAZING food. Hard to get a reservation and the only issue I have is the hostess desk when you call in to make a reservation does the typical "We can seat you at 5:00 or 10:00" when you ask for a "normal" reservation time - perhaps that attitude could be worked on.

Food was a little off on this visit. I made the mistake of trying their G it was a greasy, bland mess. My wife loved her oysters and miso cod. Neither of us cared for the Brussel sprouts, the larger sized sprouts they had this time do not work as well in that recipe. Still plan on returning but I’ll skip the burger next time.

The food is always outstanding. the service is the highest quality, a very comfortable atmosphere to enjoy lunch. Only slightly negative item is the noise level can be very high so hearing a conversation sometimes is difficult, however, we solve that by making our reservation later for lunch. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion and it is a great place to take clients for lunch.

I have lived in Downtown Denver for the last year and half. I am a foodie and hit several new restaurants a week. Honestly, hands down, Guard and Grace has been my favorite. Although G&G is known for steaks, The Alaskan Cod was sublime. The service was over the top with no pretension. I loved the total experience.

The food was a amazing! I was a little disappointed as my steak had to be sent back, but the manager came right over and they fixed it no questions asked. They even comped my steak on my bill for the mistake. Highly recommend the Brussel sprouts as a side with your steak!! Delicious!

I love this place! The service is exceptional. They gave me a birthday card signed by staff and a candle with happy birthday chocolate writing on my dessert. The steaks are phenomenal. We got oysters from raw bar. Great wine selection. Always give a little extra like this time it was a virgin cocktail juice for my teen. Definitely one of my top five best in Denver and the best for steak! Recommend reservations way in advance. To get a sat 6 pm it is at least a month or so out!

We had a great time. The food was great, friendly server. Everyone in our party had enjoyed ourselves.

I realized we were charged an additional $495.00 for another parties bill. I called Guard and Grace right away to have this fixed. The manager had made the correction immediately and had apologized several times. I understand that mistakes happen and I appreciate the promptness to correct the error. However at the end of our phone conversation and after time to process that I was charged an additional $495.00 I am disappointed in the customer service I received. I think I would have liked if the manager had offered a percentage off our next visit, or something to make me want to dine there again. Had I thrown a fit, yelled at the manager or demanded something Then, there would have been customer recovery. For that I do not think I will patronize this facility in the future nor will I recommend it to any of my friends.

Our food was outstanding. No other way to put it. The 21-day dry aged bone in ribeye was incredible.

Our waitress did forget to put in our drink order, then covered by saying the bar messed up. While theoretically possible, this seems unlikely and having worked in the industry before I know that's a common excuse. Otherwise she was fantastic.

My main issue with this dinner was that the hostess sat a party of four of the most obnoxious, over-loud, irritating "dude-bros" immediately next to us that frankly ruined the meal. Considering the meal was well over $200 including appetizers, drinks, etc., this was very frustrating. Nor did the staff make any attempt to adjust their behavior or make amends to any of the nearby parties who were all obviously and visually irritated and annoyed. Poor host-work.
