Wonderful appetizers and desserts. Outstanding service. The only disappointment was the duck breast entree; it was smoked, which wasn't mentioned in the menu description. The smoky flavor really took away from my expectation for duck flavor.

Went for a special occasion. Restaurant was busy, energetic, cheerful, with a sleek, modern atmosphere that was softened by service that was warm, friendly, efficient, and smooth. The food was attractive, interesting and very tasty. Would like to see one or two more vegetarian options among the entrees. Puzzled by some of the reviews that complained of slow service- the staff was charming and note-perfect.. Pricey enough to be a special-occasion only place for this household, but one we look forward to visiting again.

I came in for a quiet birthday dinner with my SO. Loved the wonderful snail and octopus appetizers, followed by flawless lamb loin and pork chop main dishes. Tom stopped by as he does every evening to chat with his patrons, and so did Diane to help up celebrate the occasion. For a light dessert, Diane had them create a lovely sorbet and munchies finished with a perfect dry champagne. An evening to repeat, soon!

I thought the food was very good, altho the choice of selections in the smaller plate area was somewhat limited. Location is a little "out of the way", and I think there are many places that outdo Coohills in this price bracket.
We did happen to be there on a night with an incredible sunset and the view was amazing.

The service was incredibly slow. Especially for a Saturday night when the restaurant wasn't even very full. We waited close to 45 minutes for our entrees. Our server did a great job being attentive and brought out an amuse bouche while we waited but I expected better service.

I was less impressed with the food at Coohills than I have been in the past. (We did not have the special "Iceland" 4 course meal they were bragging about that night). But I alway assume the feature items on a menu should be good. And the quality of the items should be - well better than they were.

I took my wife to Coohills for a nice night out. What a disappointment. The food is very uninspired and bland. I ordered the chicken and it was so overcooked and dry I could barely eat it. I sent it back and my wife had to eat her meal without me. She got the steak, which while cooked properly was boring and not very flavorful. When I got my chicken back, they had doused it in the au jus. I could not eat it. Plus, the sides were not much better. They did not comp my meal or offer us a free dessert or anything despite the problems with my meal. I expected a lot more given the prices. There are much better restaurants in Denver. I definitely will not be returning to Coohills.

This was a first visit to Coohills, which is an attractive space at the edge of LoDo near the MCA. The service was great and the menu (last days of summer) was well-thought out and executed. We arrived somewhat late on a Friday night, but it was still lively. The appetizers and small plates that we shared were delicious and the entrees and desserts looked great too. The chef, Tom Coohill, was on hand and introduced himself, and we plan to go back next weekend for a special "Icelandic menu"!

The food was good but not worth the price. The only bad part about the restaurant was the service. The waitress was very friendly and did most of her job well, the only problem was that it took us 3 hours to have dinner. I would think it was just a fluke if I had not read this in many other review across the internet. We loved it during restaurant week, but the food and service were not at the same level this time around. Overall, I would have to say Bistro Vendome or Le Grande Bistro are better choices for French inspired cuisine downtown.

I would be surprised if Coohills is open one year from now unless the bar scene makes them enough revenue to keep the restaurant above water. Last Friday the restaurant area was maybe 60% full. Dinner for five took around 2 1/2 hours and everything, including drinks, came very slowly to the table. I expect the kitchen staff has been dramatically reduced or they are keeping patrons longer to create an illusion of a busy restaurant. Given the time commitment, the food was uninspirational. Denver has a very competitive restaurant scene and Coohills needs to up their game if they expect to survive.

Coohills provided a perfect dining location for a great date. An iPad is placed on your table to peruse the wine selection, with details and pictures, making your choice so much simpler. The wait staff were all very friendly, helpful, and attentive. The food was perfect from the choices, visual presentation, freshness, and taste. Although we sat inside where it was quiet and romantic, there were plenty of areas for more casual get togethers including larger groups and parties...especially outside. They have a great patio with some awesome seating. We will definitely come back to enjoy a small group gathering on the patio. In addition, the location is perfect. It is easy to get to and has interesting views to make it even more enjoyable.

I visited for lunch (not open for lunch M, T) adn had a great Scottish salmon and the heirloom and barrata salad. It all was delicious, although I would have appreciated some bread to eat with it./Ambience was good; sleek, modern with lots of windows. Big outdoor area with western view. It would be very nice for groups. Botttles of wine on Sunday evenings are half price; an attractive feature for me.

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant during 5280 week and decided to take some friends back. Unfortunately, things did not go so well. When we were seated at 8:10 (reservation at 8:00) we were told for the first time that there was a private party and we had to finish by 9:30. That did not really end up being an issue. The food however, was an issue of the 4 meals, 3 were grossly overcooked. My dog even had trouble chewing most of the pork chop we took home. I think waiters should take notice if only one person at a table comes close to finsishing their meal and inquire, but that dis not happen. When we mentioned that the chicken was very dry, there was absolutely no response.

We ate in the bar because we only wanted a light meal. My burger was good, but small for the price, especially when the menu touted it as big. Next time I will have several burger sliders at $3 each. We ate in a booth in the bar It was great to be able to talk with and hear our companions...almost a thing of the past for Denver dining out!

This was our first time dining at Coohills, but it certainly won't be our last! The service was impeccable and the food, simply delicious. The space is modern elegance, with nice decor touches balancing the concrete and white tile construction. Go now before it blows up into the "it" restaurant with too many people and rare reservations. Go now while you can get a table without too much stress and it's still a quiet space in a barely tucked away part of downtown—at 14th & Wewatta between the MCA and Pepsi Center.
