Comfort Food
Acova is writing the next chapter of one of Denver’s great neighborhoods. An iconic locale in a historic district, Acova builds on the rich story of “The Northside” (now known as LoHi) by breathing new life into an address with soul. Even its name pays homage to its South Broadway sibling restaurant The Hornet, while tipping a cap to its storied Italian predecessor Patsy’s. The place you bring friends and family from out of town to show them what Denver’s all about. The place you go for that after work cocktail, or your go to date spot, whether it’s your first or 50th date. The place you get the group together on a Saturday night, and where you recover together on a Sunday morning. Acova is the next Highlands institution, bearing vintage flair and contemporary charm that threads the past into the future. Acova brings you back time and again because you are part of this story now, and Acova is part of yours.

Food was great our waitress was very nice and accommodating! The hostess was a snit, I made a reservation for outside, called 2 days before to go inside was told yes, no problem. When we arrived the hostess took us outside, 48 degrees, told her my reservation was for inside she said didn’t see my reservation and there’s no room. Came to table 25 minutes later told us to “grab our stuff” drinks and everything else, she found a table. As we walked up she took a reserved sign off the table! Probably my reserved table! She was so rude!

As always, Acova was a great choice for dinner. Even w seating limitations we were able to easily make a reservation and enjoy a relaxed meal even within the 2 hour frame. The food is consistently delicious, and we all tried something new this time. The fav will always be the street taco appetizer! The scallops, french dip sandwich and the stuffed chile were also hits! Staff is excellent, knowledgeable and attentive. This is our favorite weekday dinner restaurant.

Excellent experience all around. We sat at a table outside and the ambiance was perfect. Great for our two year old to explore without annoying other tables. Food was delicious, affordable pricing, creative drinks. Best of all was the service. Our server was Marisa and she was outstanding and very accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful night for my husband’s birthday!!

Great Brunch!! The menu has great options and the Mimosa's are yummy.
The outside area is really nice, but having dined inside (other occasions) the experiences are both exceptional.
I highly recommend this neighborhood Gem!

The vibe of the place is great with ample outdoor space. We dined at brunch, and I appreciate this being one of the few places to take reservations for weekend brunch. With that, our poor waiter was overwhelmed (though incredibly friendly and apologetic.) The entire meal took two hours because of long waits on drinks, food, and the check. I had no other plans that day, so this didn't not bother me much. However, the manager came over and gently reminded us that our reservation expired after two hours and they needed the table. It was awkward for her to learn that we had been waiting for 30 minutes for our check. She apologized. The food was underwhelming, but the drinks were good.

I did not appreciate the seating arrangement. Went for a business lunch and was shoulder to shoulder with my lunch guests. I asked for another table and was told that they could not accommodate...even though there were other empty tables. 5 people around two, two top tables is not comfortable.

Not very impressed by brunch. The food tasted like it was cooked the day before. Decor and the place itself was super cute but would probably not come back.

Hello Anonymous, We are disappointed to hear our brunch did not impress you. Our kitchen works fastidiously to produce our fresh menu every morning. I am saddened you did not enjoy their efforts. Cheers!

Great neighborhood place that we will definitely return to! My daughter is gluten free, so we were excited that there were so many options on the menu for her. She chose to get the fish & chips and it was AMAZING! My husband loved his prime rib sandwich as well. Service & atmosphere was great.
