We sat outside for a nice brunch. I had a tuna ahi poke with macadamias nuts and a side order of bacon. The food was really delicious.

If you have a dog it’s nice area to sit outside with it. They will happily provide it water too. There is a grassy area next to the seating area too.

I will definitely go back.

I was immediately impressed by the service. We were celebrating a birthday and this was immediately acknowledged with some bubbly on the house. The food and the service were both excellent.

We set a reservation at 7:00PM, unfortunately, the preceding table did not get up until 8:00PM. The staff did seat us outside with blankets (it was a cool, very breezy evening), and provided us with complimentary sparkling wine. Very appreciated! The host then found us space on the hightop bar table which worked well for us. The food was terrific and the staff attention was very appreciated after a long wait.

Fun place to go if you are looking for a large-sized Tapas experience. Beer menu was a little sparse but lots of great food options and interesting flavor combinations.

Great food, and wonderful atmosphere. They were kind and attentive. The service was great, the hostess was friendly and attentive as well but almost seemed to be rough around the edges, when she got busy almost felt her tension etc., please go visit!

Our server was wonderfully knowledgeable and even provided us with a few philosophy quotes to think on. Very fun! The tapas were absolutely outstanding. There were 4 of us and we had about 7 dishes plus dessert. It was hard to pick a favorite!

Had a wonderful experience here from the service to the dessert. We wound up waiting for just a bit after our reservation, however, the kitchen sent over a dish for our patience. Afterwards, they continued with the generosity and sent out an incredible bread pudding and chocolate mousse. Every plate was phenomenal! Highly recommend.

A little pricey for the ambiance but food was great and large servings. I would say three per couple not four - not really small bites!

Food and service great. Get new umbrellas or another means of blocking the sun. This is the second time umbrellas were falling on people!

We were soooo disappointed! Made a reservation for 4 via Open Table. When we arrived the hostess said we would be seated at the high top community table. I said no, we want a regular table so they brought one in from outside.

We waited about 15 minutes for our initial drink order. Then 2 large parties came in (to be fair I overheard one person say "We made a reservation for 8? Why? There are twelve of us"). There was one waitress and more people came in and sat outside. The food was okay. After waiting for the check for about 30 minutes (ignored by the waitress and hostess that walk by our table many times on the way outside) we walked up and asked for the check. She produced it right away. We left.

This was one of our favorite restaurants in west Denver. I am so sad this happened because I do not want to return.

Brazen is a really good restaurant. Interesting food. Moderate, not too "flavor forward" which means you can taste the subtle flavors. Been there 4 times, will return.

Outstanding service, excellent patio , very good small plate food options. We very much enjoyed our Fathers Day brunch at this old Elitch Gardens neighborhood location on 38th Avenue. Oh...and bottomless mimosas (three different flavors). Will definitely return to brunch and also try the dinner offerings!

We booked for 10am on Sunday, so it was only opening when we arrived. We sat outside service was prompt and good, food fresh and tasty. They had plenty of umbrellas for sun shade. Overall a very good place for breakfast with lots of local parking.
