        Many gluten free options, which my wife appreciated! The GF options were executed spectacularly by the chef and were delicious. I had the Coq au vin, was has received rave reviews for years however I found it to be too salty. Service was spot on. Overall very good - I would dine here again.

        The food is very good--more "contemporary" French. We were glad to hear that with the plan to become from Italian focused, there will be a touch of France as well. Best steakfrites ever!!

        Amazing experience! We’ve recently eaten at Morin and Le Bilboquet. I would say the food at Cafe Marmotte is on par with Le Bilboquet and far better than Morin. Cozy atmosphere. Excellent service. We will definitely be back! Highly recommend.

        Went for Sunday brunch with friends. Parking is extremely limited. The dining space is small but nice and not overcrowded. The lady who greeted us (I didn't catch her name) and Shane were professional and friendly. A bit expensive for waffles, eggs, and potatoes but, everything was really delicious. My friends and I loved it!

        We enjoyed our brunch very much. Portions were large and the food was excellent. The creamy french onion soup was quite unique and enjoyed it very much. Sorry to hear they will be changing their menu to Italian. Hard to find good French in Denver.

        the whole evening was wonderful, even despite the need to send back my steak frite for a better cut of meat. The service was spot on, very observant yet not instrusive. i can't stop raving about Lauren's Lettuces and my husband loved the steak tartare appetizer. def go before it changes to italian (or better yet, convince the chef/owners NOT to switch away from their yummy french food!)

        Very happy for the crew to have their own place again. Ty, Austin, Kayla, and Heather are the best. Cocktails were so wonderful, the mussels were fantastic, and the St-Michael-Eppan "Schulthauser" Pinot Bianco went very well with the sole and the lobster spaghetti...we will be coming back again and again.

        Fish was perfect; pasta VERY salty; lovely salads. New menu is good. Sorry to see Marmotte head to Italy--there are so many Italian restaurants; but will give it a try.

        Great service. Food mostly very positive. Mine just average Not much you can do with close neighbors, one of whom had a foghorn for a voice.

        Excellent; delightful experience and delicious food, including the "recipe-testing" focaccia we got to try. When in Denver again, we'll be here. Thank you.
