Delicious food and nice, quiet atmosphere. I got the ciopinno and my fiancée got the Berkshire pork. Both meals exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be back!!

We dined here on Valentine’s Day and even though we were early, we were escorted to our table and my wife was given a red rose (nice touch!). The restaurant had a limited menu, since it was Valentine’s Day. While the food was delivered in a timely manner, it was not hot and the portion sizes were small, especially for the price ($70 per person for four courses). The baked Brie was not melted and seemed to have been sitting. The Lobster tail was very small, cold and the butter sauce was cold as well. The molten lava cake for desert was undercooked and did not taste very good. It was not impressive and lacked on execution. We did mention to the waitress that we were not impressed and that we felt the food was not worth the price. The manager came and spoke with us and offered to provide a discount, which we accepted. All in All, this restaurant did not live up to the recommendations and hype.

Ordered a Hendrick’s martini with cucumber. They did not have any cucumbers but made the drink anyway and brought it to the table. Appetizer was a stuffed puff pastry that was very undercooked and tasted like it was microwaved. We brought this to the staffs attention and they said “we don’t have a microwave” - not acknowledging that the real issue was the real issue was the undercooked pastry. They did make a different appetizer that was good. Ordered lobster Thermidor - way too much cheese.

The food was delicious, however the butter that came with the bread was very hard. Couldn't spread it with a knife. Sorry, one of my pet peeves!

Always Spectacular. We enjoy Gene (owner and chef) every time we go. He is just lovely. Great formal dining without pretention (and we have been going for seven years). Great wine list and the servers know both the wine list and the menu (great pairing suggestions).

The food was wonderful. There was a private event in the main dining room (they had called and let us know) so we ate downstairs, the downstairs was not the best ambiance but it was quiet and the staff was fantastic!!! We had a great time.

Due to the nature of my work as an IT consultant and my love of all things gastronomic, I've had the good fortune to patronize a number of high end establishments throughout the US and a few in Europe. Our meal at 1515 in Denver definitely makes the top 10 list of best meals, possibly even the top 5. We did the six course tasting menu with wine pairing and it was, in a word, perfect. The duck confit was possibly the best I've had, and even my Epi-not-so-curious wife admitted that she loved the rabbit and rattlesnake sausage.
But what enhanced the meal even more was the service. Our server, Sam, was everything a professional should be: attentive but not intrusive; knowledgeable without being condescending and most of all, he made us feel like we were old friends who were in town and wanted to stop by for a good meal. He reminded me of how I tried to be in my salad days 25 years ago when I worked fine dinning while working my way through college.
Chef Tang personally brought out our dessert course and he and his wife Paula were gracious enough to talk with us for a while. It was a pleasure to meet them both and we appreciated their warmth.
If you are in Denver, and you appreciate good food and service, I would highly recommend 1515.

Date night with my wife. Our seat next to the window was perfect. Started with an Old Fashioned that was perfect. Moved on to a cheese plate and a San Simeon Cab. Perfect. We both had a filet that hit the spot. The wait staff was just attentive enough without being obtrusive. My wife has stated several times since how much she enjoyed dinner and wants to go back. See you next time...

The wine was amazing but, although tasty, my lamb and pork rib were overcooked while the chickpeas were hard and undercooked. The spinach also had too much basil and lemon.

They cared very much that we enjoyed ourselves and that we loved the food. They were out of something and apologized and sent after dinner drinks. The food was unique and delicious. Very friendly staff
