That is the first time in several visits that we received the poorest and the slowest service ever at this restaurant. The excuse was because of the concert at the Pepsi Center, which has not been an issue in the past. Very disappointed.

One of the best. Always unpretentious but with the cuisine, ambience and service of a top-shelf place. The tasting menu, offered in either 3, 5 or 7 course options, paired or not, is a tremendous value-for-money and a great way to see what this amazing kitchen can turn out. A la carte is also priced right for the portions if you go that route. Note that there is no valet parking but adjacent is a very reasonable garage, at least nights and all day weekends. If you're heading to the Pepsi Center for an event, this is just across the way.

A great dinner and wonderful service. I had some amazing carrots! And the waiter was wonderful and just let my friend and I hang out a little after dinner. Location is great to watch the sunset too.

This was such a disappointing evening. We started out with two orders of the crab cakes. They must have been frozen as they were dry/rubbery and very fishy tasting...we sent them back. Salads were good, however we had no extra plates for sharing and no flatware, which we requested. After waiting for sometime, we got up and got our own settings from a table nearby. Then we were treated to some "tastings" to make up for the crab cakes. That was nice. Our entrees were really good. When making the reservation, I told them that two of us were celebrating birthdays. Most places will bring out a desert with a candle...nothing was done here at all. Just disappointing on top of what was, generally, a lackluster meal. There was a large party going on in an adjoining room, and clearly, more attention was being paid to them. There was only one other table of diners. Frustrating.

Our first time here. It was a warm day and the restaurant was very hot when we first came in. We were seated at a table where the sun was shining right in the face of one of our party. We asked if we could be re-seated to which they told us no but they did bring out a shade which helped. It took a long time for the waiter to come to our table and take our drink order. There was a large event going on in the restaurant that was taking everyone's attention. Our food was very good, especially the crab cake. Service was spotty. Two guests at our table had still water and two had sparkling and the staff mixed it up so everyone ended up with sparkling water in their glasses after awhile. Perhaps we will try again to see if the sevice is better.

I have been to Coohills a few times and it is consistently good. Their beef is extraordinary but their menu is small and sometimes, I just want more choices. The bar is splendid. They have fabulous house champagne at a good price and a nice wine pairing option. It is not high end French cuisine but for a more country French craving, it is a great spot. The location is perfect for outdoor dining or just having a drink and snacks on the deck. Parking is close by and their staff is fun and personable.

We had an outstanding time at Coohills restaurant. The ambiance was perfect with ta table right next to a window overlooking the creek and bridge. Pur Waiter Jeremy was fun and knowledgable. The food was excellent. We reccomend trying the escargot and the catch of the day. My date was stunning and enjoyed coohills.

My wife and I had dinner last here night. I have to say it was one of the best meals we have had dining out in a long time. The chicken dish is excellent and I highly recommend it (even though I'm usually a steak guy). Our server talked me into it - he was very knowledgeable about everything. Skylar is an award winning (really) bar tender at Coohills and I recommend the Aspen drink - sort of a smokey Manhattan. Very unique. Food, location, ambiance, service, everything was great at Coohills!

ps - although we dined inside there is a very large outdoor patio with a nice view.

Was in Denver for a tradeshow and Tom Coohill was a high school friend; so the decision where to eat was easy. And how glad I did. From the time we arrived, the atmosphere, view and ambiance was all exceptional. Tom came by and said HI and was a gracious host while we were there as was the rest of his staff.

The Crab Cakes were as advertised and my friend said his steak was delicious. (He remarked he was cutting with a butter knife it was so tender). After a wonderful dinner we enjoyed Beats on Tuesday (?) with a live band and fun, lively crowd.

All in all, a great night. If you haven't been to Coohills...GO! You can thank me later.

It took 45 min after ordering to even receive a cheese plate we ordered, and that was after asking the server and the manager to speed things up. The check was dropped at our table BEFORE our food arrived. And a bread plate was brought after our food?? We were late for a show because ordering 3 appetizers turned into a 90 min ordeal.

We came here before the Hugh Jackman show at the Pepsi Center. The appetizers and drinks were very prompt and delicious! However, we waited almost an hour for the main meals to come to our table. The food was good but I would not come here if I had time constraints in the future.

Coohills is a good, convenient place for a pre-dinner Pepsi Center show. The restaurant is pleasant and the service is friendly. On the negative side, the serving processes are not particularly efficient. Plates arrive at different times and one our dishes had to be returned as the food was cold and had obviously been waiting for some time (dish was promptly and fully replaced). One of our guests tried the Pork Loin which she described as fatty and tasting of vinegar. So...Coohills advertises itself as high-end, fine-dining establishment (with prices to match), but the service and quality of food doesn't quite meet high enough standards unfortunately. Nevertheless I'm sure we'll return as we like the location and ambience. We'd also recommend to a friend but with certain caveats.

We ate at Coohills before a concert at the Pepsi center. We arrived at 5pm and let our waiter know we were going to the 7pm show. We place our order right away but food did not come out until 6:10. At that point we ordered another glass of wine and asked for our check. The wine didn’t come for 25 mins and we had to hunt our waiter down to the the bill and then hunt him down again to run our cards. We rushed out at 6:50 to barely make our show. Food was good, but will not return because of the service. If you know your restaurant is going to be packed because of a show at the Pepsi center, you need to plan wait staff accordingly.

Andrea Bocelli night, special occasion and restaurant certainly blew it. Took an hour to get our food, at which point we had 10 min to eat and run. At no point did server apologize or suggest we order something they could actually deliver. Other patrons left as they never received their food. Such poor organization, service, planning; certainly expected more. Steaks were good, pork dry and tasteless, salmon dry. Overall a very u pleasant experience!

Our experience started off fabulous. Our server was amazing food was great cocktails and appies were great, everything was awesome. Then everything went downhill, our server took our desert orders, she left and then we didn’t see her for 30 minutes. Our coffees never came desserts never came we waited longer for coffee and dessert than we did our appies and entrees, it’s a little disappointing.

Terrible service. The wait staff seemed overworked / understaffed. Waitress was very short in her interactions and inattentive throughout our meal.

Our party of 3 was seated promptly based on our OpenTable reservation, then accused 10 minutes later of sitting at the wrong table. As though we had some thing to do with their seating of us.

The waitress left the table unattended for 20+ minutes multiple times, and would pass the table while intentionally not making eye contact when we tried to make an order or ask a question.

When we finally did get our order in (after flagging down the water service guy to get out waitress for us), she missed two of the four things we ordered- our main courses.

Food was brought out by the kitchen staff quickly (appx 10 min) but the order was missing the two main dishes.

We were once again unable to get our waitress' attention to address this problem, but at this point (after over 70 minutes at the restaurant) we had to depart for the concert we were attending, so we never actually got to have our main dishes- only our soup and flatbread.

Terrible way to spend a birthday dinner.

Underwhelming. At best. Went for Mother’s Day brunch. Everything was a little disappointing. Food wasn’t bad but everything was cold. Service was slow and detached even though it wasn’t particularly busy. At one point we returned to our table to find a pile of dirty napkins dropped in the middle of the table - none of them ours and all of them covered in mousse. Maybe the regular service and menu is better but we won’t be back to see. At $60 a head there are literally dozens of better options in Denver.

This was a Mother’s Day brunch. It was all good, but I seem to recall that the pricing was different when I booked. I thought the pricing was $12 per child and $48 per adult. It was $20 per child and $58 per adult. I could not find the original content I saw but price was something I also evaluated when looking. It’s always possible I misread, but if they did in fact change the pricing at some point I wish I could have known.

Food was good. I really enjoyed the snails and the Colorado blue cheese. The timing of the service was off. We received our cheese before our wine and bread. Then we received our salad just 1 minute before the snails and our entree. Therefore we had to scarf down our salad and our snails and fish were still cold. Ordered another drink that did not come until we were done eating. We could not enjoy our food the way that we should have been able due to the timing.
