We came for our anniversary and have never had an experience quite like this one. We chose the 8 course chef menu with the wine pairing, it was amazing!! We ate things we normally would not have and we were blown away. The food was outstanding, the wine was perfect. We could not have asked for a better night out.

The staff was incredible. Every person we met was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We will be back and we will share 1515 with our friends too.

We were a party of 6 for the Denver restaurant week on a Saturday night at 7. Great night and perfect time! They were running late which was fine because we had cocktails at their beautiful bar. I had one issue with my steak being over cooked and the waiter immediately took it away and gave me a replacement cooked to perfection. The portions were generous and food and atmosphere are top notch.

I used to love this place. I went for restaurant week last week and was very disappointed. The appetizer that we really wanted was on the publicized internet menu, but was not on the in restaurant menu. We ordered the Shredded Turkey Roulade and the sauce was overly tart and tasted sadly reminiscent of Kool-Aid. The puff pastry was undercooked. The dish was lukewarm at best. We then had the sous vide steak. The steak was cooked perfectly but it was very obvious that they used a much cheaper cut of beef than they have used in the past. One of my friends ate maybe 70% and then sent the rest away cause it "wasn't worth finishing." Lots of gristle and fat. The dessert was actually good so points there. The dessert and the wine were the best part of the meal. Overall, highly disappointed.

The food was really good, but the staff really didn’t pay attenuation. even though they were really fast, efficient, and super nice, my drink was taken away before I was done with it, and we didn’t get utensils for the desert.

We were a party of 4 and visited during Denver Restaurant Week. We all thought the food was good, but not spectacular and not good enough for us to return and pay full price. 2 people in the party we disappointed in the deviations from the special menu found on the Denver Restaurant week website. The Duck Leg Confit Roulade was substituted with turkey and the New York cut steak was grilled, not sous vide. I know menus can change during such a popular event, but we all felt like it was purposeful.

The food was delicious and the service was top of the line. We had never been before and had been wanting to try it for a long time. It was a special occasion for us so we finally went and are so glad we did. The tables are nicely spaced so you don’t feel like you’re crammed in next to anyone else. The service was excellent, we were very well taken care of. I would highly recommend this place for nice occasions.

We were delightfully surprised by 1515. We came on Denver Restaurant Week. The Popcorn Bisque was delightful and amazing. The Predator and Prey was everything everyone has written about. The trout was sweet and delicious. The presentation of the risotto was only a premonition of how wonderful it tasted. The New York cut sous vide steaks were lean and quite tender and delicious. The Creme Brulee was a wonderful ending to the meal. The evening was enhanced by the excellent service by our server, Stephanie as well as the tremendous hospitality by owners and Chef Gene Tang and his wife Paula. Thank you.

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.

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.
