You won't find a better steak in Denver than at G&G. Also, you find better service either.

Guard & Grace delivered a more upscale experience than a standard chain steak house.

I would have preferred less indulgence on the amount of butter in the potatoes, oil on the vegetables, or cheese on the spinach dip. This is a preference for how to prepare food I eat rather than a judgement on quality of preparation. The steak was excellent.

Great ambiance, and also pricier than a chain steak house.

We had an incredible meal at Guard & Grace yesterday. Our server, Lindsey, was attentive and offered some amazing recommendations. The Burrata and Oak Grilled Octopus was out of this world. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the wine selection was perfect. Highly recommend, but get ready to spend some solid $$$, but it’s worth it!

I took my boyfriend here to celebrate our first anniversary. We had a wonderful experience at Guard and Grace and will definitely return. The staff was pleasantly engaging and attentive. They were very accommodating in allowing us to change tables, and they had a nice touch of giving us a signed card to celebrate our anniversary. Food was absolutely delicious and the portion sizes were were a great value. Best of all, our waiter really elevated the entire experience with thoughtful recommendations and sincere conversations. Thank you for night we will cherish.

The food was amazing! Had the octopus appetizer, which was cooked perfectly. Dinner took a little long to come out. Our waiter was really great and took care of us. The scallops we had were the best I have ever eaten. The steak flight was amazing and fun to sample the three choices.The waiter comped a side and brought us dessert. The best chocolate chip cookies! I would for sure recommend this restaurant.

We always come here for their octopus appetizer, and each time it is delicious. We also really loved the vanilla pavlova which had passion fruit sorbet, white chocolate mousse, and compressed mango.

I used to love this place but it has really gone downhill the last few years. We were very unimpressed with our food and it was certainly not worth the $450 price tag. We wish we would have gone to chipotle instead.

10/10 stars! This place lives up to the hype for sure. Service was incredible- from the hostess to our server (Andrew who was amazing) to the busser, everyone was as friendly as they come. No words to describe the food— perfectly seasoned & cooked and cocktails were fun and delicious. Can’t wait to return!

Absolutely fantastic for our special family celebration! Everything exceeded expectations from the moment we walked un the door until we left. Food, cocktails, wine, service -- even the handwritten birthday card signed by the entire staff. WOW. I have been to G+G for work lunch and happy hour many times. This was my first experience over dinner and it was truly outstanding.

Four of us dined out at Guard and Grace which was highly recommended as we were in from out of town. We ordered a round of cocktails, then had the burrata with the prosciutto flight and the hamachi crudo for appetizers. The prosciutto had 3 small pieces of each type of ham, and the burrata was small for the steep price tag (almost $40 for those two items). The crudo was good, but again five slices of fish. We then had 2 glasses of wine and two more cocktails with dinner in which we ordered 3 entrees (the 4 oz wagyu and cod half and half to split between two people), a 4 oz prime filet meal and the scallops with pork belly. We also ordered 3 sides: the truffle mac and cheese, the chili potatoes, and the mushrooms. The sides were very good. We then had one dessert, the toffee cake and two espresso martinis with one additional glass of wine. I’d recommend the espresso martini. Granted, this was a lot of food but the $530 bill before tip was incredibly shocking even for folks coming from the Bay Area. Be warned to spend a small fortune if you want appetizers and a dessert.

I have heard great things about this restaurant and so my husband and I decided to dine here for Easter Dinner together. The service was not only outstanding and friendly but they are very attentive. The ambiance and where we were seated, it was quiet and seemed very intimate. The booths for the small two tops were comfortable and roomy which was appreciated. The food was outstanding and I love the fact that they have half portions. We had the octopus to start. Although the octopus was very good, we did feel as if maybe ours was just a tad overcooked. It was very hard to cut through it but the taste of it was still good, again, just a tad overcooked. For entrees we ordered the filet flight, (2) scallops, half portion of Alaskan cod and we did the truffle gnocchi and a half portion of the chipotle lime smashed potatoes. The grass fed Filet and Wagyu was amazingly delicious! The Prime was not bad at all but the other (2) outshined it. The scallops and cod were great especially the sauce for the cod - delicious! The half portion of the smashed potatoes was very impressive and more than enough. They tasted great also but I was so in awe with the truffle gnocchi. It is seriously the best thing I have ever had in my whole life (and I eat out A LOT). If you take anything from this review - please take my advise on the gnocchi. It is so incredibly delicious, words cannot even describe it. For dessert we ordered the sticky toffee cake and 7 layer banana cake. As the rest of the food, these were just as delicious! I cannot even say which is better than the other because they were both equally good. Guard and Grace is an excellent restaurant and I am upset that it took me this long to find out for myself!
