Soup dumplings are to die for but everything we had was amazing. Awesome bartender as well! It was a few days before indoor dining lockdown, but we felt safe and well cared for with socially distanced tables and staff who clearly had customers safety in mind. The service was perfect. Thank you, Cholon!
Exceptional service, yummy quality food ( get the wings and shrimp rolls, duck noodles and the donuts ) and the portion are generous . Would definitely go back and highly recommend. AAA++
Absolutely stellar as always!
Food was cold and didn’t make sense why it would be. I ordered one meal for one (myself). There’s wasn’t a wait for multiple plates to come so not sure why my one meal was cold.
This is one of our favorite places! I understand the world climate is different… But only giving a party ONE HOUR to have drinks and food is absurd. I am all for timing tables right now… But that short of time is ridiculous
I came out to Denver for work and had to make my way over. The staff was very accommodating and held my reservation for 30 minutes as my flight was late.
Awesome waiter and service all throughout the night. Definitely would recommend 10/10
We always love ChoLon!
Went during happy hour and we were not disappointed. Even their happy hour food is amazing! 10/10
It was amazing. Andy (bartender) & Dave (manager) were outstanding.
We had an absolute blast and actually got engaged at the restaurant! We will definitely be back and will recommend it to whoever wants to know a great place to eat!
Our server was wonderful, the host was not, a male host who didn’t care to accommodate any request and told us we couldn’t sit at a table because it was reserved and no one ever sat on it, we had a reservation and still wasn’t helpful.
Hi Beth, I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your service and meal. I'm sorry that you felt our manager wasn't happy to accommodate your request to move tables. Typically we would love to accommodate any request but we did have an 8:30 reservation that had specifically requested a window table in their visit notes. When they arrived, they were only 2 guests instead of 4 due to a guest being sick. We do hope you'll give us another chance to impress you in the future. Best, Savanna Ronco CRC
Food was amazing, service was good but not great.
Excellent experience and ChoLon is now in our top 3 restaurants and we’ll be returning soon!
Thank you for dining with us & we're thrilled to hear you enjoyed the experience! We'll hope to see you in again very soon. :)
Savannah made the weather situation better since the cold front made it impossible to eat outdoors. Thank you for saving our date night! Stayed in touch for days to make sure we were taken care of!
Hi Lisa - Thank you for dining with us at ChoLon to celebrate a date night! Happy to hear we were able to accommodate moving the party indoors when the weather turned cold. Hope to see you in again soon! :)
Apparently they were having an HVAC problem b/c when I asked if they could turn up the heat the hostess informed me that the night before it was “hot and people were sweating”. It was pretty chilly the 2.5 hrs we were there. Food was good.
Hi Kiana - Thank you for dining with us! Happy to hear you enjoyed the meal & experience. You're correct - on the Saturday you dined we did have our HVAC serviced before dinner, but we did have our heater on & turned up higher than usual, so we were hesitant to turn it up even higher at the risk of guests getting too hot. I do apologize if the cold draft from the door made for an uncomfortable dining experience and do hope you'll give us another chance to impress you in the future.
Delicious food and drinks as always! One of our favorites, will be back!
Hi Jenny - Thanks for dining with us at ChoLon Downtown! Awesome to hear you enjoyed your meal and that we provided the type of experience you've come to expect at ChoLon. Hope to see you in again soon. :)
Very good appetizers. The entree was just okay, not enough salt or flavor. I would go back for the small bites and drinks.
Hi Amelia - Thank you for dining with us! Happy to hear you enjoyed the overall experience, but I am curious to find out which dishes you tried that you felt lacked flavor. We certainly take all feedback into consideration so if you'd like to respond and let us know which dishes you tried & didn't like we would love to hear from you. We do hope you'll give us another chance to impress you in the future!
Customer Service, overall, was very poor. Whether they were short staffed or inexperienced there is no way that a restaurant that is supposed to be rated this high should be treating customers like they're just eager to move them in and out. There was no regard to the dining experience whatsoever, and most of the dishes were over-salted. The chicken sliders and the spiced donuts were quite good, but the lack of customer service and experience left me feeling like it would have been better to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday at Ace, who's food is far superior, and staff much friendlier.
Hi Wendy, Thank you for giving ChoLon Downtown a try. While I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the sliders and our signature doughnuts, I am very sorry to hear you were unimpressed by the overall experience and you felt service was lacking. This is certainly not the kind of review we typically get and would love a chance to find out more information in order to improve upon this experience. Best, Savanna Ronco CRC
What an incredible evening. Our server Phillip was amazing at selling the food and describing it in a way to make your mouth water. His service was impeccable. The food was so unique and every bite was beyond delicious. I will dream about the French onion soup dumplings as well as the kaya toast. Great ambiance inside as well.
Hi Kelcey, Thank you for dining with us at ChoLon! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed the experience, especially the dumplings and Kaya Toast, and that Phil took great care of your group. I will certainly pass along your accolades to both Phillip & the chef team. Hope to see you in again soon! Best, Savanna Ronco CRC
Cholon is always an amazing dining experience. Fantastic food and ambiance. We are never disappointed.
Hi Amira - Thank you for dining with us at ChoLon! Awesome to hear you enjoyed the experience, and that we've continued to provide a great experience for you. We hope to see you in again sometime soon! Best, Savanna Ronco CRC
First time in Denver. Came here and was thoroughly impressed.
Hi Cbay - Thanks for giving ChoLon a try on your recent trip to Denver! I hope you enjoyed your trip and it's great to hear that you left impressed by the meal and overall experience. Hope to see you in again next time you visit; our menu does change seasonally! Best, Savanna Ronco CRC
Go to try the infamous soup dumplings but stay for the Crispy Korean chicken sliders. They are the unsung hero of the menu. Scallion pancakes are excellent as well.
Hi Rochelle, Thanks for dining with us at ChoLon! So happy to hear you enjoyed your experience, especially the sliders and dumplings! The scallion pancakes are a personal favorite of mine as well. :) Hope to see you in again sometime soon so we can earn that coveted fifth star! Best, Savanna Ronco CRC
Food was excellent. We ordered 5 starters and 2 main meals for 4 people to share...perfect amount of food. A bit put off by the waiter bringing the check without asking if we wanted dessert, which we did. Asked him about ordering dessert and he said that we had a 2-hour table limit (which I did know about), but we’d only been there 1.5 hours. He walked away to try to find out if we still had time to order. It took him almost 10 minutes to get back to us. We eventually did order dessert (excellent donuts), but by then we felt even more rushed and ended what started out as a great evening as an OK evening.
Hi there - Thank you for dining with us at ChoLon! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the overall meal, but I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed by the end of the meal. Though COVID has caused us to be a bit stricter on our turn times (each table is reserved for one hour and thirty minutes), we always hope to communicate that to the guest at the beginning of the meal, so we can be sure to pace everything correctly so as to not make the meal feel rushed. I apologize for the miscommunication.
This is our 5th time back to Cholon and it never disappoints. We had a fabulous dinner with small and medium plates for 4 of us. The onion soup dumplings are still my favorite thing on the menu. The waiter was great and had wonderful suggestions which we followed. Drinks were excellent. Can't wait to go back. We ate inside and felt very safe related to social distancing and cleanliness of the restaurant.
Hi Sharon - Thank you for dining with us at ChoLon! It's so great to hear that you enjoyed your meal, especially the dumplings, and that your server took great care of you. Also very happy to hear that you felt safe with our COVID protocols - that is a great compliment in these trying times! We can't wait to see you back in again soon!
Great! My favorite restaurant in Denver b
Thank you for coming in, Austin! Hope to see you in again soon. :)
We ordered one of each of the small plates to share, and given that we were a party of three, our server automatically adjusted 2-item plates to 3.
The food was elevated Asian fusion with nice cocktail pairings.
The service was fun and highly professional.
I would definitely come again, and look forward to the opportunity to do so in the near future.
Thank you for coming in! Happy to hear you enjoyed your small plates and cocktails, and that our service team took great care of you. We hope to see you in again soon!
Had the perfect birthday dinner at this restaurant! The decor, the ambiance, service, and the food were all outstanding.
Hi Symone - Thank you for celebrating your birthday with us at ChoLon! So happy you enjoyed the meal and that our service team took great care of you. We'll hope to see you in again sometime soon!
Sorry to say the soup dumplings have gone downhill. The dumplings were too thick and the soup did not have as much flavor.
Hi there COdiner - I'm very sorry to hear you were disappointed with the soup dumplings on your recent trip to ChoLon. I'll be sure to pass your observations along to Chef Lon and the team so they can insure every batch of dumplings is up to our standards moving forward. We do hope you'll give us another chance to impress you in the future.
Because the restaurant is only allowed to have up to 50% capacity, it was quieter than usual. When we've been there, pre-COVID, and it was packed, it was loud and difficult to talk to people across the table. So, it was nice, this time.
Food is always great. Service is always terrific. Yes, it's more expensive than other restaurants, but it's worth it to us, for the dining experience.
One negative, though, the hostess was in blue jeans and white sneakers/tennis shoes. It seemed under-dressed to us, when the rest of the staff was dressed in all black.
Hi there AT123 - Thank you for coming in. Happy to hear you enjoyed your meal and that our service team took great care of you. Hope to see you in again soon!
I could live off the soup dumplings and Korean fried chicken sandwiches!!!!
Thanks for coming in, Christina! So happy to hear you enjoyed the meal, especially the dumplings and sliders. Hope to see you in again soon!
Love this restaurant. Everything from the food, drinks, service, and ambience was fantastic!
They kick us out after 45 minutes
Never go back to that location again
Cholon’s food is always consistently good. Great to share dishes.
Nice ambiance, beautiful decor and very spacious and clean inside.
The food and flavors never disappoint.
Awesome as always.
This was an amazing experience. Will definitely be back and try other delicious dishes. Great wine selection and the restaurant felt clean and spacious.
I was here for lunch in August 2019. This time I had Kava toast with egg cloud(unusual flavors) and the Korean hot chicken sliders( just the right amount of heat). I then had the chicken entree with Colorado peaches and a scallion pancake. I drank a Tamarind Fizz and a peach cocktail, then a french riesling. I got a 1/2 order of spiced donuts with Vietnamese coffee ice cream. A very satisfying meal.
Cholon always has wonderful service and consistently delicious food.
Service and food were great!
