Asked to be at a low table due to children and elderly people with us. Got a high top with no backs on the chairs and barrels where your legs are supposed to go. Went for denver restaurant week. Non alcoholic drinks were expensive and now there is a fee to pay servers the minimum wage that gets added to your bill without you knowing until it shows up at the end of the meal. The sea bass, chicken and tiramisu were very good but the rest was not great. The prosciutto app was a single piece of a stale baguette cut in half and was tasteless. The staff were very nice though and did a good job. Probably a good place just to drink.

We sat on the patio and had a great evening. The were definitely not the most organized for restaurant week, for the time gaps in between courses was long. Our waitress, Meredith, was awesome! She kept us informed and took great care of us. We still had a great evening despite the spaced out courses.

Went for a birthday and during restaurant week. The food was delicious, loved the Watercress salad. The service at our table was good, but by the time we got our second and third course they’d run out of things we’d ordered. Not the server’s fault, but it was disappointing. Vibe was good!

The service was wonderful. Lacee did a wonderful job with her recommendations and helping us as first time visitors. The food was everything I was told it would be! Such a wonderful experience and will absolutely be back! Highly impressed and could not be happier we chose to try Bigsbys after watching them on Instagram for many months.

As always, the wine was delicious, we ordered glasses of the EPP and the Pinot Noir Willamette Reserve. We decided to try the Restaurant Week Menu and were underwhelmed. Our favorite part was dessert. We ordered the cookies and cheesecake. There was only one server for the entire back half of the restaurant so service was less than average. I think we will stick to drinks on the patio in the future.

Bigsby's wins big on ambience, great service, and great wine - we had a fantastic evening. The food came out within minutes however, and never felt completely fresh, which leads us to believe it had been sitting under a heat lamp for a while. It was still pretty tasty, but you're coming here for the wine and music. Our server was fantastic - prompt and attentive. We'll be coming back for drinks and maaaybe a charcuterie board in the future.

We had one great server and one who kind of spoiled the mood for us. Considering the price of food and drinks you would think there would be quality service all around. I don’t think I will be going back to dine in any time soon. Great wine though!

Went to Bigsby's Follys on Saturday for restaurant week. It was crowded but socially distanced. The servers were nice and attentive, but slow. I could not tell if they were trying to be polite and not rush us or if they forgot about us. The food was not great, you would expect better for restaurant week. It is a good place to go if you want a drink, but I would eat somewhere else.

The food was reasonable. We had to wait close to an hour for our main course to come out since the kitchen was a little backed up. The service was alright but a little slow and we had to ask for everything multiple times like water, drinks, and silverware. Nothing to rave about. Food was tasty but would wait the amount of time we did for it.

Food and drinks (wine and cocktails) were great. Ambience was louder, but a welcome change from the pandemic. Our server was good, but the food was really slow ( not complaining that we were there longer, just hungry) it was restaurant week, so likely busier than usual. Overall, still a great place and will go back, just maybe not during rush time.

Update: Received a call back from the Service Director and issues have been solved.
We will be going back to try a dinner wine night.

Cons: The service was questionable. We ordered avocado toast, which we never received. The toast was on our bill but we had it removed. The service was pretty slow. We ordered two wine flights and it took 15 min for them to arrive. We had to ask for our check because the waitress never came back.

Pros: The vibe and venue is great. Has a real cozy feel. The food was great! We got the breakfast nachos, and bacon galore. The bacon was made nice and crispy. The staff was very friendly.

We already knew their wine was top-notch, but were pleasantly surprised and impressed by the food, and it is rare that I'm every impressed by most restaurant offerings. So incredibly delicious! Inventive, creative, cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The wine pairings were perfect. Service was great. Attentive and everything was perfectly timed. The only complaint would be the noise-level. We were there on a Friday night and happy to say the place was quite full (we still felt very safe with spacing of tables and the ability to be socially-distanced from other diners), but the acoustics of the place are challenging. Very hard to hear one another across the table. Other than that, I give this place a 5-star rating. Can't wait to return!

Food and wine were good but the wine is extremely overpriced. They charge $18 for a 9oz glass of wine. The menu is deceiving because they put the extra charge disclaimer on the side of the menu instead of right next to each of the wine selections. Server was not attentive. Waited to get our first order in, then the second, and had to ask someone to get our check. Aside from the negative, the ambiance is nice, and once we got the orders in they were quick to bring them to us.

This is a hidden gem in Denver. I really enjoyed everything about this place. The space is really set up nicely and the decor is great. We ordered one of the regular wine flights and one of the reserve, and they were both really impressive. The wine was great, the food was great and our server was really friendly as well. I'll definitely be coming back.

The first thing the hostess said to us when we walked in was we only get 90 minutes because they need the table we're sitting at by 6pm...Kind of a turn off and then we sat there for 15 minutes before someone came to take our order. The wine and spinach dip were great, but it was frustrating that we were told we have a strict time limit and we would wait 20-30 minutes every time we wanted another drink/food.

Great winery! We did the wine tasting and it was a good amount of wine, definitely no shortage on the pours. Very nice indoors, and I'm sure once the weather is nice again the outdoors will be an awesome place to sit. Looking forward to going back soon!
