    For Denver food standard, it was above avg. You cant go wrong with fried chicken sandwich. We moved from Chicago - so a bit picky on food tastes. Service was great. Really cool atmosphere.

    Had a great first time at Ophelia's this past Sunday. The atmosphere was super quirky and funky and fun. I was surprised at how delicious the food was. There were several options and combos to pick from. The drinks were a bit overpriced, but the show was free, so, girl math. This was a pretty busy day but the staff was super helpful and kind. I was a bit bummed that the espresso machine was down, but the staff offered several helpful solutions. It was quite loud even at the top level, but that's what we signed up for! Overall I would recommend checking this place out.

    We went for the chefs battle, where local chefs compete against each other, like an top chef. It was so fun to watch, the food was great, especially the brussels sprouts and smash burger, and the drinks were delicious and not too expensive. We went with our two kids ages 12 and 14, and they had a wonderful time too. I think they felt cool to be in an adult-ish space Lolol

    Visited Denver for a long weekend and made a resi to attend the Pitbull brunch. Really didn’t know what to expect! Thought either a look alike singer or a DJ was the later. He started late, music was ok. Bloody Mary’s were tasty, food was solid and service terrific. Don’t love sitting downstairs as we felt removed from the crowd UP and we were frozen. AC or vent from outside was blasting on us… overall good experience.

    What a fun place to spend a Friday night with a couple of friends and listen to some good music. The food is far better than you’d ever expect and this place is another big win for our Denver Restaurant Week exploration.

    I went for restaurant week, which is a three course dinner, with three friends. We showed up at 6 pm for our reservation and we were told that we had to be up by 7:45 pm because there was a show happening and the table was reserved for people who had tickets, which was more than fine with us. We got our appetizers at around 6:30/6:45 and weren’t served our entrees until 7:30. We were served dessert around 7:45. They never told us that we had to get up but it was pretty frustrating that we had to wait an hour between courses and we sat down with the impression that we had to be up at a certain time which just wasn’t true. We left around 8 pm. The food was overall really good and it’s such a cool venue to have dinner or drinks while watching live music, but the service was disappointing.

    I know it was a busy evening but going 20 minutes at the table without even a water, another 45 minute wait for appetizers and then being kicked out of our table for an event before asking if we wanted another round of drinks or dessert ruined the experience. I will say it made for a cheap bill but we planned on ordering a lot more in the 1.5 hours we were there.

    Wonderful dinner! Came to see Judith Hill, and had dinner before the show. We loved the service, and dinner. Definitely recommend the Bison steak! Judith Hill as always was incredible. I am a musician and need to say that the volume from the back of the room was too loud. Her vocals were distorted because of the volume. Other than that, it was a wonderful time.

    We wanted to see the place and grab a bite. Everything was fine. It’s a small menu, but fairly priced. Service was meh, but it was the pre event crowd. Be advised it’s a loud place without a lot of people so it will be very loud when full. We will go back for a show, the food is prob best suited for their events.

    The first time we reserved a table but didn't get the table we requested, but the manager hooked us up during our meal and got us a great seat so we can watch the band. He made us feel like VIPs. The 2nd time we reserved a table on OpenTable and put in the same request and immediately someone responded to confirm they'd get us a table with a view of the band for the entire duration of the night. And sure enough, we were sat at the perfect table and got to enjoy our entire night. The only thing that was a bit irritating was having a big table behind us with people who talked very loudly over the band but that isn't Ophelia's fault. Overall, fun place with fun vibe, great food, good service, and killer music!

    Second themed brunch and it was as amazing as the first. Deep Prince tracks and videos along with outstanding food and drinks - the Raspberry Beignets were delicious - and great and friendly service in one of our favorite venues makes for a wonderful Sunday starter. Wanted to stay longer just for the vibe and Bloody Marys. We are going to make it a point to make it up there for an evening event. Great job to everyone, highly recommended.
