Southwest
Kachina-A modern Southwestern restaurant that sits comfortably close to Denver and Boulder, yet just far enough away to escape the exhaustive beat and to truly enjoy a festive gathering with friends and family.
There’s nowhere better to relax and soak in the rich Southwest culture and its spirited cuisine than Kachina: an inviting oasis where you can sit by a calming Kiva fireplace on an expansive patio while looking out toward the Rockies in the distance.
Our chefs take diners on a culinary journey back to the land with grilled bison, green chile burgers, posole, Navajo tacos and more, just as the locals have done for hundreds of years.
Kachina also features an extensive wine list, local & regional brews, and creative, crafted cocktails. Let Kachina's collection of handcrafted tequilas and artisan mezcals expand your horizon.

The food used to be much better IMHO. The queso is average now and enchiladas also mediocre. Second time visiting in recent months and just so-so on food now. It was in our top 5 restaurants previously. I love the ambiance and they have great margaritas.

I would have given 5 stars but the overhead heater didn’t work so it was chilli, we sat outside b/c there was a heater...

The waitress spilled water and one drink on our table which almost landed on my wife and I and she never apologized nor offered anything as a comp to offset what could have been a disaster... very unprofessional and rude!

The food was okay...we ordered the tacos. Hardly any steak in them. The tortilla was very unusual...fluffy and soft, not bad really. The beans were dry on the sides. The guacamole was brown and did not taste very good. The sangria is made with bubbly water and had no fruit (the description stayed it did). It did not taste good.

We had my brothers birthday dinner 8/13. Usually, the food and drinks are fantastic and are worth the drive but it was a little bit of a let down. Sent the first two drinks back that were supposedly “Mexican Mules” but were not drinkable and got swamped with margaritas. The taco plate posted on FB 8/6 had whole beans, green rice, and a chili pepper. My plate, had refried beans (tasted old), red rice, and no chili pepper. The navajo tacos were great with perfectly made bread. My let down is the misleading advertising that was posted a week ago.

This has been our favorite night time day time place to be!! The staff is absolutely amazing from the time we walk in till the moment we walk out!! Couldn't ask for better food...well hoping they bring back the original shrimp tacos, but wonderful all the way around! Thanks for helping this busy couple feel welcome and happy!

I went recently during the pandemic and found that they had cut back the number of items on the menu. That was disappointing. Also the print was impossibly small to read on the paper menu they were handing out.
I had been to the restaurant several times last year and found it nice, so this recent visit was a disappointment.
Service was good and the ambiance is nice.

In these COVID times I felt pretty safe there. The patio was arranged in a distancing way with wait staff in masks & gloves. This hotel has always been impressive to me so good choice for my first dinning in after close down.

The menu is quite limited right now and pretty pricey. A meal with three small scallops was $24. Not a good value. The margaritas were excellent. The tacos were good. Pretty expensive for what we had. The ambiance is nice and our server was excellent. Maybe things will improve after they have been open a bit longer.

Good food, sub par waitress, overpriced for value.
Atmosphere is pleasant but The poor service And overpriced menu overshadowed the nice atmosphere. Katrina seems to have taken up the mindset that if they have less customers they will charge more for less.

Not many options for vegetarian and when they make tacos vegetarian, they are pretty sad. Super expensive for not much value.

Kachina is my favorite restaurant to go eat and get happy hour! It is a very different experience with everything going on. I would say that it was a slow start and will only get better from here, the service wasn’t as good as it normally was. They still have the best margaritas ever! I appreciated that they were open and we could support them!

Indian tacos used to be the best in town. They recently changed the menu and with that change, seemingly, the quality has degraded. They no longer offer fried duck confit in a few of the tacos and the amount of filling was literally less than a teaspoon. The shrimp taco was filled nicely but the steak taco hardly had any filling. The house margarita is usually wonderful but this time it tasted of Mezcal vs Resposado. Overall, it was deflating. This used to be one of our favorite places but we will have to rethink future visits. Nearly $70 dinner for two is not a good value when all the food was only fair. It’s certainly not what we’ve experienced in the past.
