This is one of our favorite restaurants in Denver. Food never disappoints, service is incredible and ambience is upscale without being ‘stuffy’ or exclusive.

Average steaks at best. Not true wagyu if you’re accustomed to that. Apps were good.

First time in Denver, glad I went with this choice! Went for a birthday celebration and they were very attentive! The steak was cooked perfectly (filet and t-bone). The service was top notch very attentive and little details like a signed birthday card made the night extra special.

Excellent experience. Took my fiance here for her birthday and it was a huge hit. The Wagyu Filet was the best I have ever had. If you don't order the gnocchi, you are a fool!

Connor, the Sommelier, was AWESOME! He spent quite a lot of time with us explaining and choosing a couple bottles of Pinot Noir to pair with our surf and turf meals. Lana was our server. She was very attentive and knowledgeable. The best part (other than the quality of the food, cocktails and wine) was they offer split entrees. Many of the entrees could be served as halves on the same plate. All of us chose a half serving of seafood with half options of various types of beef. Perfect for fickle dinners (me)!

This was probably the best steakhouse I’ve ever been to, and admittedly, I’ve been to my share. Ben was our waiter. He was helpful and funny. The gnudi was amazing. We shared did the filet sampler and it was more than enough. The whipped potatoes were incredible. We finished with the toffee pudding.

From the moment we arrived we were taken care of the entire night. Our server was well versed in everything on the menu and explained everything very well and answered any questions we had.
Drinks were delicious and the food was perfection. One of the best meals I have ever had. My ribeye was perfectly cooked and perfectly delicious. The whipped potatoes were ethereal. The Luxardo Cherry Cheese cake was heaven.
One of my favorite places. Simply amazing.

This was an incredible experience. Our server Michael was brilliant with his recommendations and knowledge across food and beverage selections. The entire team at G&G are complete professionals and some of the absolute best in the industry. We had a rowdy table next to us that was starting to interrupt other guest's dinner, and the team came and dealt with the situation immediately. We will absolutely be back as this is by far the best steak and seafood restaurant in Denver!

Go for the cosmonaut martini! The orchids sphere is phenomenal! It was our 36 yr wedding anniversary & we had a flight of three different fillets, grass-fed, Prime and wagyu. The salad and whipped potatoes were out of this world! We made reservations for my birthday next month right there on the spot. Brian was our server & I highly recommend him! I'll request him with every reservation I make in future. Thanks Guard and Grace!
