The service was excellent! The food was really good and worth the extra price tag. I would definitely try everything on the menu.
Great food. A little too noisy for business conversation.
The restaurant is way too loud for any type of conversation and the view in the back of the house is a view of some type of vent billowing out smoke - ridiculous for such a highly priced restaurant.
We love it here but this time the service wasn’t as good as previous visits. The manager took care of it & discounted our bill-which wasn’t necessary but appreciated. The waiter just seemed off or in a bad mood-not sure. Maybe that’s his normal personality or lack thereof but he was disappointing. He was spoken to & had a worse attitude after actually. Other than, amazing as always!
Outstanding in every way. Great place to enjoy awesome service and food that was beyond expectations.
The noise level was overwhelming. We had four people in our party and could not hear each other unless we shouted. My son is in a wheelchair and he could not get through the revolving doors. We had to wait until building security came to open the main doors which are not near the restaurant. Certainly not worth $150 per person we spent.
Guard and Grace was great. The apps were outstanding and the steaks were cooked to order.
Server was pretentious and seemed bothered. Food was delicious. Woman at another table was extremely loud and obnoxious.
Excellent steak cooked perfectly. Service was top notch. The restaurant itself is quite noisy, I wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a romantic spot. The hostess was very nice and arranged to have a birthday dessert I brought served. VooDoo donuts maple bars stacked like a cake. They dressed it up a bit and my wife was very happy.
Steak, rolls and salad was AMAZING! We ordered carrots as an app and gruyere potatoes - both were very undercooked and my husband and I couldn’t even eat them. We told our server and he kinda laughed it off. Second, our reservations were at 8:45 and we definitely felt like we were the last reservations of the night. Overall wasn’t the best experience for our anniversary BUT if you’re going just for the steak it was delicious!
A little expensive on the sides, but impeccable steaks and fantastic service and wine!
Great food and service. Noisy
This was an excellent place for a business lunch. It was fancy without being overly fancy or expensive. The "appetizer" rolls and the "after dinner" cookies were such a nice added touch. I had the Steak Salad while my lunch partner had the Bubu Bowl. We both enjoyed our meals thoroughly and the services was also top notch.
The service from our waiter, Dustin, and the sommolier are what made our experience enjoyable. Our meal was also great. The only downsidel, and the reason I cannot give 5 stars, is because of our wait time. We made a reservation for 8:00 pm. We arrived at 7:45 pm and spoke with the hostesses. We went to the bar and ordered a bottle of wine. They proceeded to not seat us until 8:30 pm. They people who came in after us, reservation or not, which was beyond frustrating.
Exceptional service and food! Nathaniel especially provided exceptional service and was the experience overall from the hostess to the woman clearing our plates to the gentlemen filling our water. The food was delicious and the chef went out of his way for a special birthday request. Thank you for always making it a 5 star experience!
As always, great service, great food special that day and atmosphere.
Fantastic service and amazing food. Not much more you could ask for.
we arrived and sat down a what appeared to be a manager came to us and talked about wine he then got us a bottle and then no one came back we finished off the wine and I had to get someone action to even begin to order our food then it took sometime as we never really where waited on and I asked for lemon in th beginning and never got it. so not sure have mixed emotions about it
Denver is an early city so happy to find a late reservation (9:45) after our day took an unexpected turn. Staff never made us feel rushed for a moment of the meal and in fact treated us to an extra scoop of the salted pretzel ice cream. Sommelier recommended a bottle of wine that was both excellent and less than the one my husband originally asked about. Second time there and we will be back for sure.
The best meal I’ve ever had in my life. The entire experience was exceptional, from the moment we walked in the door until our last bite.
Excellent Food and Great service! It is a a busy place, so if you want privacy I would request a table in a more quiet area in the restaurant. Definitely want to come back!
We went there on Sunday evening to celebrate our anniversary day. We had a reservation so wait wasn't long at all. Server was very informative on most of the items. Thought it was weird that she didn't go into any details for the main dish until we asked her about it.
Overall, food was good. Server brought our 1/2 orders of truffle gnocchi and crispy bacon brussles sprouts. Since our server recommended the hanger, we ended up getting that to share. She brought some bone marrow dipping sauce for our meat b/c she thought we'd like it. We thought how nice ... until we saw the bill. She charged us $8 for the sauce! We asked her was the sauce not a comp? She said she can take that off for us. And then we noticed a full order of gnocchi and we ordered 1/2 order. Even our plate was a 1/2 order size but the server said that she wanted to make sure we had enough food so made it a full order. Ironic thing was that she was the one that said we should go with 1/2 order b/c full order is for 4+ people! Both my wife and I didn't know what to say to that. Why would the server change our order without asking us? Did she expect we wouldn't check our bill in detail? We didn't want to argue about that either so ended up just paying for a full order so we can get going.
So our first experience at G&G would have been better if we didn't run into this weird experience with our server. Never have we ever experienced something like this before. I'm sure we'll go back again. However, we'll make sure we don't have the same server again.
Food was great, service was great, drinks were great. It was very loud, almost hard to talk to each other.
Great ambiance and awesome service! Steak was surprisingly pretty average.
I recently moved to Denver from Santa Monica and was looking for a good steakhouse. My usual steakhouses in LA are Cut and Boa, which both apparently blow Guard and Grace out of the water. It was surprisingly not even remotely close.
It’s unfortunate because the service was great and I really wanted to like this place. I ordered the bone in New York Strip and it was pretty bland and un-flavorful. My girlfriend ordered the regular New York Strip and it was better than my bone-in.
I look forward to trying some of the other steakhouses in Denver that are hopefully better.
The steaks are wonderful and we liked the fact you can choose between three grades of beef and different sizes including 4 oz. The sides were different and yummy. Don't miss the bone marrow starter. The service was great. A terrific experience.
Food, atmosphere, and service were truly exceptional. Would highly recommend this absolutely delicious restaurant. We will be back! (P.S. Try the Black Truffle Gnocchi!)
We made reservations for our anniversary and we’re pleasantly surprised at how delicious our dinner was! It was very expensive but the service and food was the best we’ve had! Will go again in the future!
The staff at Guard and Grace went up every and beyond for our anniversary! We sat down to a card signed by everyone and a glass of champagne. Our server, Jonathan, was amazing! Very helpful and gave great suggestions on all aspects of our meal! The food was delicious and we even tried octopus which was awesome! Kiddos to Jonathan for making our anniversary so very special!
The food was good, but we had Daniel (little man bun) as our server. When we didn’t order a bottle of wine, he got a weird attitude. The entire time, he made us feel like a burden, it ruined our evening. We had been looking forward to trying the food, but bummed out by the evening.
An incredible meal. Every single person made the night so special. From starters to dessert, the food was incredible. The cocktails are all well balanced! Next time I’m in Denver, I’ll be back! I highly recommend this place to anyone & everyone.
Great night - steak was fire, great service and quick drink service.
Our server was amazing.
Amazing experience. Extremely good food. Expensive but worth it.
Just an amazing place to eat great experiences. If you can afford it I recommend going . Expensive but the food is wonderful
The appetizer were good! ONLY. However the rest of the food was not that great. The service could have been better.
Amazing food and amazing service. Went in for our anniversary and they acknowledged it in a few different ways. Great experience!
Thank you for the positive review! We are happy we were able to make your anniversary special!
Delicious seafood and steak. The side options are plenty to share. It can be a bit noisy when the bar area is bustling.
Fantastic dining experience. Will definitely return
Robert, Thank you for the great review! We are looking forward to seeing you again!
We took our adult daughter to Guard and Grace for her birthday dinner. We'd heard amazing things about the restaurant. Our server was outstanding...engaging, attentive, and very knowledgable about the restaurant (Adrianne). We were seated right by the waiter entrance to the kitchen, which made it noisier...people separating silverware and a few complaining waiters, etc. It took longer for each course to be prepared, which we are used to in a finer restaurant, but our meal took a full 2 hours. The octopus appetizer was very delicious, brussels sprouts side was delish, and the specially prepared veggie plate quite tasty, but the filets didn't really own up to the hype....weren't bad, but nothing special. Chocolate dessert was good, and the coffee cups are HUGE with great coffee. Overall, it was a good evening, but not sure we will return.
