Great spot in downtown Denver! I had the chili rubbed Wagyu sirloin and my wife had the char grilled Scottish salmon. Both were fantastic! Our server appeared to be a little overworked in her section but did a fine job. The atmosphere was classy and we were treated to a small table by the windows next the the 16th Street Mall that made for some great people watching. A wonderful meal in a beautiful restaurant.

Visiting from out of town and stumbled across Marlowe’s on open table. So glad we did! Hands down best brunch! We got the medallion steak and eggs. So tasty! Steak melted in your mouth. Also, a side of breakfast sausage. This was our server’s recommendation. This was unlike any breakfast sausage we’ve ever had, I think he said from a buffalo? He recommended it over a side of bacon which who on earth does that? Well now we know. Incredibly tasty. We also had a build your own bloody which was good! Great last morning brunch experience thanks to Marlowe’s and the awesome service. I feel horrible I can’t recall our servers name because he was awesome and deserves a shout out but must of been the foodgasmic coma blanking my memory.

We went to Marlowe a year ago and had a wonderful experience. This year was quite different. The restaurant was empty yet the service was horrible. Our waiter acted like we we're inconveniencing him for dining in the restaurant. Food was okay but nothing to write home about. Very disappointed with the experience.

While not necessarily “kid-friendly”, they did a wonderful job accommodating our 3-generation party of 9 for dinner on Christmas Eve. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.

Nothing bad, but really nothing that distinguishes it or sets it apart from the multitude of places downtown. No real identity. Food was decent, as was the service. Good, actually. But certainly not great and nothing that I would say they specialize in. Would return, but won't go out of my way to get there.

A nice selection of tasty appetizers and entrees, and a satisfying wine list, makes Marlowe's a good choice for dinner. The wait staff is pleasant and efficient, and the atmosphere is comfortable and elegant at the same time. Their location next to the Paramount Theater is a plus.

We really wanted to like this place! We both ordered the sirloin, and both cuts contained a lot of gristle. Very chewy. I expected a lot better cut of meat for $30 price. Ambience is great.

Fantastic experience. The food was AMAZING. We had a steak and the halibut. Both were among the best dishes we’ve ever had. Service was friendly and attentive, but not over the top so we weren’t constantly interrupted. Definitely going back. Worth the hour drive to get there for us.

We were a large group of 14 people. Even though we had so many people the food came out hot and everything was excellent. Our waiter was great! We started out with the calamari and we added jalapeno and parmesan cheese to it which made it extra good. They also had the brussel sprouts that we added bacon and parmesan cheese to and that also made it extra good! We had the rib appetizer and that was excellent. I had the lamb chops and they were excellent as well. Highly recommend this restaurant. Everyone said their food was very good especially the steaks, fish, and chops.

The food was excellent. The server had serious attitude and was impatient when we needed more time to look at the menu since it was different from that online and never once checked to see how our dinner was. Would not go back and would be hard to recommend to others.

I wanted to like this place because it was a great atmosphere when we walked in but immediately after being seated we had a very tough time of it. Our drinks took 20 minutes to get to the table and food another 10-15 after that. Once the food arrived, one person's fish was seasoned on the scales side, one person's prime rib was unseasoned all together, and I asked for mayo and received ranch. All of this is to say that there were only a dozen other people in the otherwise large restaurant and most of them were at the bar watching a game. It appears the staff is either completely new or they just don't care that they are doing a poor job.
