Food and service was very good. Would have liked main dish with lamb to be hotter but other than that, everything tasted great and nice presentation. Liked that it is not too loud and you can enjoy conversation!

I so enjoy the atrium room at Humboldt's! It is light and inviting. Even though tucked away from the crowd in the atrium, our server was attentive, gracious and timely. We enjoyed the fried brocolli the most, and the house bloody mary is a good, spicy start to Sunday brunch

This was the second time dining. We used our Denver Dining Passport. Menu options are good and being a salad lover; the salad was outstanding... Our waitress was great; could tell she liked her job. The booth we sat out was not comfortable for me, being 5', but other than that had a wonderful time and experience.

We’ve been to Humboldt a few times. It’s consistent and spectacular. It’s become our favorite date night. I’m from WA and they have Puget Sound oysters that remind me of my childhood. Highly recommended.

My wife and I went here during happy hour for her birthday dinner. We had brussel sprouts and raw oysters from the appetizer menu which were reasonably priced and delicious. We had the filet mignon and the sirloin. Both were excellent. The service was good. It’s a little pricey but you get a great meal.

Service was okay, but food was mediocre at best. One of our two entrees arrived cold and had to be returned, so we ate separately. Over priced for this experience. We have taken it off our restaurant list.

Great vibe, outstanding food and the prices are reasonable. Super fast service and friendly staff. The scallops were outstanding. The portions are ample but not too large, we took some home. I would definitely recommend it. The key lime pie was also very fresh and tasty.

Humboldt never disappoints. From the moment we arrived until we left we had a pleasant evening. Pre-holiday, when all 4 siblings are together we go out to eat. This is our second time of choosing Humboldt.

The ambiance is relaxing. Tables are spaced apart enough so you don't feel as if you are sharing your conversation with everyone else in the restaurant.

Service has always been excellent...that night was no exception. Our server, Nichole was pleasant and attentive.

The food, as always, was exceptional. All four of us enjoyed sharing the calamari appetizer and entrees were delightful.

I have been to Humboldt several times for various occasions and will continue to keep it on my "go to" list.

We'd read great reviews and this was in our Denver Dining Passbook, so we thought we'd give it a try. The space occupied for years by Strings has been beautifully redone. We started with happy hour in the spacious bar and were wowed by the creamy trout dip, kale salad, and cocktails. Our server was fast and friendly and the hosts were very accommodating, not rushing us at all to our dinner table from the bar. For dinner, we were seated in a quiet, smaller room, perfect for conversation. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu, helping us decide from the many appealing choices. My husband's filet mignon was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. One of the day's specials, huge scallops on a bed of crisp cauliflower and rich risotto, was also fabulous. The crispy broccoli may have been the highlight of the meal: definitely not the healthiest preparation, but amazingly delicious, and an enormous portion. Part of my entree and some of the broccoli made for a great meal the next day. The manager took time to visit our table and chat with us, which also impressed us. We're so glad to have made this new discovery and look forward to returning!

We picked this restaurant based on previous excellent reviews and were not disappointed. We have a beautiful meal from cocktails to dessert. We started with the bourbon peach mule and one of the ales on tap. The appetizers of crispy broccoli (GF!!!) and truffle fries were awesome. We thought about canceling the entrees to eat more of the small plates. The braised shortribs ribs with polenta and beets were really tasty. The ribeye and fries were beautifully cooked. The desserts were unique.

I love Humboldt!
It is one of my favorite restaurants in Denver and is always a go-to for date nights or special occasions. Both the food and the service are fantastic! Being someone who is pescatarian and allergic to gluten and dairy, finding a restaurant with amazing food and a kitchen staff happy to accommodate my restrictions is not easy, and Humboldt takes the cake for making me NOT feel like I am the world's worst dinner guest (Thank you!).
Humboldt also has the best server in Denver, named Hope. She is attentive, helpful, and welcoming without being overbearing. She has worked in the industry a long time, which is evident in her knowledge of the menu, wines, and order suggestions based on your meal preference or specifications. She is straight-forward and steadfast in a way that is calming and comforting, so you feel completely taken care of and are able to focus 100% on enjoying your meal and the company you are sharing it with.
The overall price point is on the higher side, however, the portions are huge (even the appetizers) and are on-par or slightly below what you would pay at other restaurants similar in quality and cuisine.
My favorite dishes are:
Appetizers -
Brussels sprouts
Calamari (sautéed for gluten free)

Entrees -
Sea Bass
Salmon
Scallops

Thank you Humboldt!

A relative new find for us this is a new go to place when friends or family are visiting Denver. Relaxed atmosphere that is not to noisy with great service and food. You have try the flash fried broccoli, it is excellent. This time I had the short ribs and they were truly exceptional. Very lean and cooked just right on a layer of polenta. HIghly recommend giving this restaurant a try. You will not be disappointed. Oh try the Truffle Salt Martini, perfect balance of salt, booze and truffle, a real treat.

It's a great restaurant for just drinks and snacks or for dinner. The food was so well prepared and delicious. We did find it odd that the manager and waitress felt it necessary to touch us each time they came to the table. They touched our backs, ran their hands down our arms-- odd!
We'll return, but plan to make it clear that we don't want to be touched by staff.

We have gone to Humboldt quite a few times in the last couple of years. Their cocktails such as their barrel aged Manhattans are especially good. Two members of our party got Fish: one was a regular menu item and one a special. Both were delicious. The Steak Diane was eaten to the last morsel by a third person.

Desserts were also excellent.

The only problem was that we were seated at a table overlooking the kitchen; it was very noisy, making for not so great interactions at a business dinner. Have never had that issue before and now know not to sit there.

Still an enjoyable meal!
