Top notch Italian with plenty of inclusive options.
Pricey but worth the treat.

The food was as good or better than we had in northern Italy last fall. The service was impeccable but not intrusive.

Wow- what a great dining experience! We used to be regular customers but the Denver area traffic has changed our regular locations. We were coming down on Valentine's Day for the Symphony and thought we'r revisit Panzano. Traffic was like L.A. and we had to call twice ( 1 1/4 hours from Lone Tree) but Hannah held our table for us . Then Jose, our server, recognized us even though it had been a couple of years! The next pleasant surprise was when the Chef made us some olive tampanade as it was no longer on the menu. Mac, the General Manager, stopped at our table and we had a delightful conversation about wine (new world vs. old and the Northwest vs. Napa). I thought we'd have to make a quick wine selection and wolf down a couple of small plates but Jose was so attentive, and the kitchen so sensitive to our time schedule, that we had a wonderful dining experience and still made the show!. The food was outstanding, as we remembered, but everyone's personal and attentive service made for a great experience. Thanks! Mark & Nancy

As we have been to Panzano about once a year for five years, we have not seen a decrease in the quality of the experience. It still remains high all the way around. The only concern is that we maybe weren't presented everything that was available to us. See my notes below.

That said, we did notice some changes since we were last there. For instance, there used to be a more electronic menu and now there is a paper menu. I don't know if that was confusing to some, but it was a change. We also didn't notice a wines by the bottle list. Maybe we just didn't ask for one, so it wasn't presented? Outside of that, the food and drinks were excellent.

My wife and I shared an appetizer of the fried brussels sprouts. We've had this a number of times over the years and are never disappointed. I had the Farro Con Giardino (Farro Risotto), which was very filling and my wife had the Braciola (Berkshire pork chop) We exchanged meals half way through so we could try out each other's main meal.

I do notice that the online bar menu is much more extensive that what we were presented. We did split and enjoy a flight of the Amari, but I notice that online they even claim to have Armagnac. I wish I had known!

Panzano used to be one of my favorite restaurants. However, the service I received at my most recent visit was horrible. I intentionally came in early to enjoy their superb happy hour. We were seated in the dining area - five feet away from the lounge/bar area. The hostess gave us the happy hour menu and two regular menus. We had our items from the HH menu picked out and ready to order, when our waiter informed us that we were NOT allowed to order from the happy hour menu because we were seated in the dining room area. To clarify, I asked the waiter, "So you're telling me that if I get up and move 5 feet to the right and sit at that table right there, you'll serve me the happy hour menu, but not if I stay at this table right here?" He said that's right. I asked to see a manager. The manager comes by our table, and I point out how damn ridiculous this policy is, and he dismisses my complaint and says I can move over there if I want. So my friend and I get up and move to the lounge/bar area and proceed to order the happy hour... but then here's the kicker - Panzano then retroactively takes away my OpenTable points and says I was a "No Show" for the reservation!! I couldn't believe it. Not only is their happy hour policy completely devoid of logic, but they're scrooges too!
They have officially lost a longtime customer.

The food was very good but markedly overpriced. The waiter was the worst part of the experience. He was condescending and a bit of a smart aleck- I expected greater professionalism.

The Brussels sprouts are one of the best sprout dishes I’ve ever had. The arancini were a little salty and cheese heavy for my taste. Overall great experience.

Excellent food and service. Only 1 issue, they delivered wrong appetizers to our table. Took 10 minutes to correct the issue. They were not that busy for Saturday night 7pm. There were open tables. Very accommodating when I had to add a guest, and get a bigger table for late arriving guest. I would absolutely recommend Panzano for a great dining experience.

This is a restaurant in a Kimpton hotel. Unfortunately the design and ambience are somewhat austere and functional, like the hotel (which we have stayed at in the past). The food is good and generally rich and certainly filling: scallops, lamb and wild mushroom pasta, and the deserts were all very good. The service was excellent. Would certainly recommend for a business dinner, but maybe less so for a romantic evening.

The food was SO delicious and the waitstaff incredibly attentive and knowledgable about food allergies. The gluten free bread is INCREDIBLE (seriously, I was texting everyone I knew about how good it was before I even finished the first piece), the gluten free pasta perfectly tender and in a delicious sauce, and the broccolini flawlessly cooked with a slight sweetness to balance its natural flavors. I highly recommend Panzano!

Food was absolutely delicious. I had the Eggs Benedict which was to die for. Chicken hash was yum. Service was a little off - waiter kept trying to take our coffee cups and water glasses while we were still eating! But not a big deal! Will return!

We have been to Panzano before and the food is truly delicious. The lamb ragu was amazing. Our server however was off his game . Not busy at 5:30 but he seemed to forget every conversation he had with us and we had to repeat ! Most annoying though was being given a happy hour menu at 5:30 and ordering cocktails and apps from the menu only to be told when we got the check that happy hour prices were not honored in the restaurant section. May explain why no one was there! That is a bit of a bait and switch. Will stick to the bar and enjoy those delicious cocktails and small plates at a reasonable price .

My favorite working lunch location! Our server, Sarah, was warm and very knowledgeable. Our food was terrific and the noise level was pleasant. There's a reason I always gravitate towards Panzano for lunch!

We were seated properly when we arrived. The wait staff were tentative to our needs but not overwhelming. The appetizer was nicely done and tasty, the main course was appealing and it was a flavorful dish that we enjoyed.

The appearance of the restaurant was nice but needs a little updating. The booth that we sat in was not that comfortable.

I would highly recommend this restaurant for its service and food.

I had been to Panzano many years ago and remembered it being a lot better. Unfortunately, our recent experience here was not nearly as good. While the food was decent, it was no where near the level I would expect for the money we paid. The service is also not what it used to be.
