 (London)·Dined 3 days ago

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.

We did the eight course tasting menu this Thursday. The first two courses were composed of escargot and soft shell crab that had been dead and lying on the ocean floor for many moons. Our steak tasted like it had come from a deceased squirrel off broadway street. The cheesecake and service was amazing.

Had an excellent birthday dinner at 1515 for my fiancé. Very attentive service. For an upscale restaurant it did not seem to take itself too seriously which is always a pleasant surprise. Huge wine selection and great appetizers and dinner options. Elk was my personal favorite. Highly recommend this downtown spot!

Restaurant was largely empty. Service was still rather slow. Food was really uninspired, rather bland, lot of sauce, didn't leave you feeling great. Wanted to like it, but with so many other great options at comparable price points I don't see the point of making a second trip.

We celebrated our 10th anniversary at 1515. There was a hand-written card at our table when we arrived and champagne to begin our evening. We enjoyed the cheese plate for our appetizer, four cheeses and fruit, chutney, mustard as well as honey and crostini. We shared the Caprese Salad. I had the Arugula and Red Pepper Linguine; divine. My husband loved the Colorado trio of elk, buffalo and quail. A creme brulee ended our dinner and it was exquisite. Everyone from the hostess to the servers was friendly, accommodating and made our anniversary dinner special. 1515 has so much to offer. We'll be back!

Ate here for the first time before a show at the Ellie. It also happened to be our anniversary which we shared with the hostess when we arrived. We were greeted at our table with two glasses of champagne and a handmade Anniversary card. Totally unexpected. Our dinner was delicious. I recommend the cherries jubilee for dessert. It was the best we've ever had. It's a little on the pricey side, but the portion is huge and shareable. Service was impeccable to say the least. We had a great evening.

The hospitality was really amazing, from our greeting at the door all the way through the meal including a special visit by the manager, twice. Food was really good, and we appreciated the interesting ways to present and garnich/accompany the dishes - such as "blue cheese pearls"...interesting and delicious. Nice job on the steaks! Loved the depth of flavor with the French onion soup. Thank you to the staff, executive chef, and managers, really nice job. Hope to see you all again soon.

This was our first visit to 1515. Had an early res as we were going to DCPA for a 7:30 event. Service was very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive to our time constraint. Great wine list - some great bottles at reasonable prices, given the quality. Food was consistently well-prepared and presented. We left with only one question: why wasn't this place full at 7 pm on a Saturday night? We walked by Capital Grille on our way to DCPA - it was mobbed. While I like CG, I will take 1515 as a great local alternative any day. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I eat out quite often and we do not mind spending money on great food. We ordered the six course tasting menu and we were excited about trying several different menu items. We were very disappointed in each course as the flavor combinations were not at all appealing, nor were things as fresh as they should have been (dried up edges on the salmon as just one example). We both love fish and were looking forward to the cod dish; both the cod and the accompanying rice cake were truly inedible. Our waiter, although pleasant enough throughout the evening, only remarked "oh, I guess you hated the fish". Well, yes we did. The goat cheese cheesecake was a pleasant finish after such an unsatisfactory meal. The dinner would have been displeasing and unpleasant no matter the price, but it made it much more so considering our very pricey tab for awful food.
