Chow Morso is a new gem in the heart of LoDo. Fantastic food for affordable prices -- the quality of Barolo Grill (a sister restaurant) in the center of the downtown activities. Dinner date, happy hour knosh, or pre-concert or theater, Chow Morso is a perfect spot.

The food and service are wonderful and it is a beautiful restaurant. The downside is the noise level, which makes conversations difficult. We'll be back, though!

The pasta was amazing, however the Caesar salad I shared with my boyfriend was tiny and overpriced for what you get. We started With the salmon appetizer which looked beautiful but was also tiny and overpriced. If we come back we will only be getting the pastas,

Wish there was more cocktail options (vodka) and the Arancinis and carbonara was just ok.

Hello, thank you for your feedback, we have the ability to make absolutely any vodka based cocktails, our bartenders have dozens of choices, we are VERY surprised you didn't enjoy both the arancini and/or carbonara, we have hundreds of responses to both of those dishes as being some of the best most have ever had!! just last night we had dozens of compliments about the carbonara being BEST thing they ever had! We invite you back in to try them, or perhaps it just isn't your thing, Best Regards!

Great Food and ambiance. Portions were adequate with being overwhelming and beautifully presented. Service excellent. Wine is a little pricey at $16 a glass but expected at upscale restaurant and decent pour for money. Would recommend and will return

The service was professional and friendly. Great menu suggestions. The food was tasty and well presented. I found the portion size to be lacking I left with a very happy palette but still hungry for $20 a piece for lunch perhaps a slight increase in portion size might be in order. They also might consider offering bread with your lunch

Well designed, though generic interior. Attentive service. Ample, tasty portions. The calamari was excellent - just about best in town. The fig and mushroom salad was not a success. Pasta dishes were well prepared, and the pane cotta was a wonderful dessert. The wine list is extensive, and fairly priced. I do wish that there had been valet to park the car. Finding parking downtown is now impossible.
