Exquisite food, nicely judged portions, outstanding, unobtrusive service, leisurely pace - maybe the best meal we’ve had in Denver recently.

Our server gave us excellent information and recommendations about the menu options. Everything we had was excellent, and well-prepared. I can't think of anything that I would have changed.

INCREDIBLE food, from the G&G House salad to the Filet Mignon and Scallops. Worth every bite! The wait staff was just as wonderful and knowledgable of the menu as well. 10/10 Recommend!

We had an absolutely incredible dinner the food was fantastic and the service was impeccable. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the meal, The wine, or the wait staff. They were incredibly accommodating. The only reason I’m knocked down this service to a four-star instead of a five star is because the host stand was not very organized or welcoming. The wait staff was five star all the way!

Had great steaks as usual, but sides were not up to usual quality. Especially the broccoli. However, the server was excellent and the banana-chocolate tarte fantastic.

What an incredible meal and experience. My boyfriend and I were in town for a concert n this place was recommended to us. Service was fantastic. I ordered the cod which has been on the menu from opening and was unreal. My boyfriend ordered the steak flight and said it was one of his best meals. We ordered some sides and the toffee cake for desert which was insane. Can’t wait to find another reason to get back to Denver!

The appetizers were amazing and the drinks were great. The customer service was impeccable as well but for some reason the steaks seem to be seasoned with way too much salt. To the point my tongue hurt and I felt my feet swelling. We would have thought the steaks would be much better since it was no15 steak spot in the nation. Highly disappointed.

Great service, good steaks, but dessert, you might think again.
Bread was dry but in case who needs them, it is okay.
Seasonings were perfect on all meals, great wine selections.

We had extremely high expectations from all of the other reviews.

Davin rocked with wine selection. Andrew was an amazing server. Music and ambiance was great. The food overall was super salty. Burrata was wonderful with prosciutto. But the carrots, salads and meat were overpowered by salt. Crab cake was hard as a rock and dry. I’m super curious if this was a off night.

Despite plenty of seating we had a couple seated next to us with a dog. They dog was so close that it was nosing our table, dusting us with its tail and after the server brought a bowl of water for it, sprayed us with slobber. It was unintentional and unfortunate, but when slobber landed in our food we couldn’t handle continuing the meal. Better planning will avoid these situations.

The food was hugely disappointing based upon their reputation. The halibut was overcooked and we sent that back. The pasta dished was undercooked and we should have sent that back as well. I also didn’t think that the flavors of the pasta dish complimented each other.

A disappointment especially for an anniversary dinner celebration.

To their credit they did not charge us for the halibut entree

We didn't know what to expect but from when we walked around the outside and saw the stunning interior we were excited. Our server, Kevin, was PHENOMENAL. The whole service staff went above and beyond and wrote a birthday card for the birthday celebrant. The side portions were huge and I couldn't decide what my favorite bite was. Will recommend to everyone I know.
