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.

We dined there for Mother’s Day brunch and they were extremely unorganized. We had to ask a couple of times for salt and pepper, sugar and coffee refills. They advertised a compliment glass of prosecco, but the wait staff acted surprised when we asked for it. I had eggs Benedict and the dish was passable. Eggs were cooked perfectly but the hollandaise sauce was bland.

We went here for mother's day brunch. They had a free glass of champagne for each mom. That was nice. Our server was nice. Our food took a very long time. Then the manager stopped by our table to let us know that they needed us to leave for other reservations. I've never been pushed out of a restaurant before. I did not take this well, especially because the cause of our stay was due to their (lack of) timeliness of getting our food out. This could potentially be a cool place but for this particular Manager (I wish I would've gotten his name, I was just so taken aback). I will never go to this restaurant again and if asked I will intentionally and purposefully recommend to my friends and family to pass on this spot (if you value your time, respect and service).

I would have given this restaurant 5 stars with one exception: there was a very strong perfume smell in the restaurant. Actually, I believe it was coming from the Westin Hotel. It might have been the carpet, or an air "freshener." I would be willing to try the restaurant again in hopes that the smell was a rare thing. Perhaps they had just gotten the carpets cleaned.

Our Mothers Day Brunch was great! Service was okay...our waitress was very busy and did not really check on us until she had to, however, she did bring over free beignets for Mother’s Day and she was very nice. Overall we had a good experience.

Our reservation, made a month in advance, was for 7:30 pm. We were seated a few minutes before 8pm. We had nothing but water until 830pm. Food was served
after 9pm. This is not a server problem. This is a management problemwith: it was the 3rd time we were offered free dessert because of this problem. 3 strikes snd you are out. Unfortunately we will not return.

They had no record of our verified opentable reservation . After being seated 10 minutes I finally went and found someone to wait on us. The food was just okay . I couldn't really see my bowl. The lighting was very dark. There was a convention going on at the hotel and the bar was crowded and Extremely Loud. All the servers were focused on those people. We probably won't go back. Supposed to be a special evening.

Kachina has changed and limited their menu. We had been there several times in the past but the new menu, slow service, and sub-par entrees has made us decide to not return.

We arrived on time for our reservation but it appeared the restaurant was understaffed for a Sunday. It took some time for our server to arrive with menus and take drink orders...After ordering our meal took almost an hour to be served because the kitchen was backlogged. The server was very kind and provided us with a guacomole app and the beignets afterwards - gratis due to the extended wait.

Although hungry, we weren't in a hurry and our server did his best to make the wait as pleasant as possible! I like the food options and atmosphere at Kachina and we have dined there often. Despite this one experience - the server made it right in our eyes and we will definitely be back.

Since it was Easter, it was crowded and pretty noisy and we had a table right where everyone walked in and out, so it was very "busy" all the time. That having been said, our waiter was amazing -- very helpful and attentive and made sure we got orders placed when we were ready and food delivered hot and smoothly. And, the food was very good and plentiful. We'd like to go back and try it on an evening and away from the spot where we were located this time around, just to see if we would give it five stars across the board. While I rated food at 4 stars; I'd probably say 4 1/2. But the service makes up for everything -- definitely 5 stars plus. And the prices were right in line with what you would expect. Overall, a good dining experience and worth a return.

Food is always good, but service was nonexistent today. Almost felt like our server was ignoring us. Had to flag her down for refills on coffee and wafer, just felt we weren't worth her time. We are longtime Kachina customers, so this was really out of character for the restaurant.

We love coming here, but it was the worst experience we've ever had! Our party of 8 waited 1 hour for food to arrive! When we started asking at 40min wait we were told twice that its getting plated or its coming which wasn't true. When it came out it was good although the kids hamburger had been sitting under the hot lights for awhile and was chewy and overdone. The manager took care of some of the bill which was nice, but it was too high to begin with. The waitress told us about happy hour and that we could order from that menu, but none of the happy hour discounts were applied. The most frustrating part was that not once during that hour did she come back to ask if we wanted more drinks or get us water refills. She forgot about us or was intentionally ignoring us. I believe she just forgot our order all together! Don't make excuses, just admit you messed up!

Love Kachina! Always a great dinner and fun atmosphere; it was especially lively this visit as the hotel was hosting a dance convention. It was pretty loud so was hard for a big group like us to hear one another. But if you like a bustling atmosphere, this is the place.
Another great thing about this restaurant is you can find an entree in all price ranges; from $17-$30 a meal. Plus, our kids meals were free with an entree! My only "complaint" would be no free chips and salsa.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to dine in a beautiful space. The ambience is modern southwestern and the food is delicious. The service was great too - friendly and professional. The overall experience reminded me of some of my favorite New Mexican restaurant moments that I've had in the past. I will be back soon!

Food was very good.

The restaurant mixes large group gatherings with two person dining and the noise level and foot traffic is obnoxious.
