I made a last minute reservation for 5 and we were so happy that we did! All of us got the 4oz filet and shared a few small plates. The steak was hands down one of the best I’ve ever had. Cooked to a perfect medium rare. The service was also very speedy and our waiter knew the menu very well and made us all feel very welcome. We were all wearing sweatpants and they still treated us with kindness and had no judgement. I will absolutely return to this restaurant.

A family of three...we each ordered filets. One each of the prime, Waygu, and grass fed. They were all amazing and cooked to perfection! We also had the house salad which was very unique and delicious! We had the sticky pudding cake to complete our dinner. It was so good and the presentation was beautiful! Tim was our waiter and he was excellent! We eat at many high end places but this was easily in my top 10 dinning experiences ever. Everything was perfect!

We had a wonderful dinner, made so much better by our friendly server Justin who was very attentive and efficient. He made some great recommendations and was very accommodating with random things like updating me on the Dodgers game scores. The steaks were cooked to perfection and all the sides were seasoned very well. The dessert recommendation by Justin was amazing - as full as we were we ate every last bite of it. Overall an excellent meal.

I love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The crab cake was amazing and the G&G salad was refreshing. The Wagyu NY steak was a little grisly. Service was well-timed and friendly. They went out of their way to be informative and helpful.

Guard and Grace was hyped up as one of the best places to get a steak in Denver. A friend and I sat outside, and ordered a bottle of wine to begin. Our order was wrong as the waiter brought the wrong bottle. We were sitting next to the server stand, which seemed like a place to gossip about other tables while standing approximately 5-7' away from our table/booth. We both ordered a 4oz. Prime Filet. My medium rare came out mostly medium, and my friends medium came out fully medium well. We had waited more than 5 minutes to be checked on after cutting into our steak so just decided to try and enjoy what we had. The food wasn't terrible, but I'd say for a $$$ steak house, the service could have been a little more personal and food a little more perfect.

Responded on October 16, 2020

My apologies for your experience. Unprofessional conduct and inattentiveness is unusual and definitely unacceptable at Guard & Grace. It would seem we missed our mark all around. Would you consider a return visit to Guard & Grace along with your friend? Please reach out to me directly whenever convenient for you.

The space is good. We were given a table that matched our request. The service was excellent. They gave my husband a birthday card signed by the staff. Unfortunately, we did not care for the food. The salad was uninspired, and was mostly cabbage. My steak, although cooked perfectly, was tough and flavorless. This isn't what you expect for a steak that costs more than $40 and doesn't come with any accompaniments. My husband's steak wasn't any better. We didn't say anything at the time, but perhaps we should have.
