No mention of regular menu not being served. Only option was bar food, hot olives and cheese pizza... so romantic. Rude service, host was a joke, complete failure of service. I found it partially funny that considering our experience the male owner spent time speaking to everyone in the bar but us. Total waste of money.

Had the Valentines Day tasting menu. The standouts were the Branzino and the Scallops but every course was fantastic. The wine pairing was a must and we discovered a Chardonnay from Santa Barbara that simply blew us away. They even topped off our glass because the next course was taking longer than usual.
Service was top notch. Our server felt like our new best friend by the end of the night. We will definitely return and highly recommend it to anyone else.

We visited Coohills for our date night and we were very impressed by the service and of course the food. Our charcuterie was locally sourced from Fruition Farms and was delicious! We also ordered the lamb shank, Monkfish, and crab cakes and those items did not disappoint. The crab cakes are a must order and the lamb shank was perfectly tender and portioned well. Though pricey, this meal will be well worth it!

We had a business meal and the service as always was great
3 co workers got the steak and really liked it. My Boss and i got the monk fish, it was recommended by server and sounded good. We were both very underwhelmed. It had zero flavor. I was so sad. I’ve been there several times and loved everything I’ve had.

This restaurant had always come up as one of the recommended places on Open Table so I finally gave it a try as a special end of year dinner with my daughter today , and yes, as I had anticipated, it ended up exceeding my expectation. There are several private booths right by the bar area and the host/hostess sat us in one of them. It was very quiet; I could enjoy my nice/meaningful conversation with my daughter.
We ordered several different small plates instead of ordering two entrees and one of them was spaghetti squash and this was amazing to say the least. Only downside of this restaurant is that they really don’t have a large wine selection (this restaurant is categorized as French so you’d think that they have great French wines but they don’t.) Well it’s my understanding that it hasn’t been long since it’s opened so I hope they improve in this area in the near future. Overall this is a 5 star restaurant to me.

This was our 3rd time at the restaurant, the location is perfect for the Pepsi center, unfortunately the service has been slow overtime we have been there.... but this was definitely the worst service we have had. It took them an hour and a half for them to get us our dinner at 5:30 at night. The restaurant was not even that busy and we missed tip off!

Based on the caliber of restaurants in Denver, Coohills represents an outdated and out of touch establishment. The food was fine, the space is charming, but the service and value was disappointing. There are dozens of other delicious and dynamic restaurants worth a repeat visit. Sadly, Coohills will never fall into this category.

6 of us ordered the vegetarian dish. Though the waitress told us the base was spaghetti squash, a lump of dry spaghetti was served with a few cut up sweet potatoes and 3 turnips atop the spaghetti. For $21 this idea of a vegetarian dish was absolutely disgusting and an embarrassment to the establishment. One person, who does not eat gluten, only received the squash and the turnips. She reached out to the manager who brought her a dish with the same squash and turnips, some wild rice and 2 mushrooms in a broth. The dish had no seasoning and was only eaten due to hunger. In her case the dish was comped. However, no one should have ever let dishes like this go out. The restaurant had potatoes, lentils, mushrooms and other vegetables they could have used to make an amazing vegetarian dish, however someone with absolutely no creative just lumped stuff on a plate. I have never seen such a poor display of creative or attention in a fine dining restaurant. I never say never to going back, but this was such a poor display we won't ever return.

We went to Coohills before a show at the Pepsi Center. Our server was very attentive and took good care of us, despite the huge crowd.

They had a special menu that night so I don’t know if the food was a good representation of their normal fare. The apps were very good, but I found the entrees bland and over priced.

As usual, it was a great experience to dine at Coohills. We brought a young couple with us. Impeccable service, pretty view of the river, elegant decor. We enjoyed the steak, fish and a scrumptious vegan dish. They kindly let us stay and chat for hours without making us feel pushed. Excellent night out. We will be back.

We had an excellent meal. Service was great and food was even better. Small downfall to the evening was when dessert and after dinner drinks were offered, the server did not tell us how much the Ice wine cost. We got the bill and it was $28 per glass. Next time inform your guest of such a high priced item.

Owners Diane, Tom and son Ethan made a birthday celebration even more special. The food was outstanding; we both enjoyed the Crab Cake, Salad, Filet with Baumaniere Potatoes (Perfection) and the Bread Pudding(Divine....complete with birthday greeting and candle!). Service was impeccable....professional, efficient and gracious. An excellent wine list afforded us the opportunity to select an outstanding bottle of wine to top off the celebration. Merci! Merci!

4 stars is an averaged review for 2 experiences the same night. Came for an earlier after work business event which I would give 5 stars - great appetizers (the best I've had in Denver), attentive and friendly staff, good wine, very pleasant outdoor seating and bar area; stayed for a business dinner with my client which although good (maybe 3.5), was not up to the same level: limited number of entrees only 4 or 5 at the most with some being less than inspired (poached chicken), few salad selections, disappointing dessert, wait staff change mid-way through 7:00 dinner reservation (i.e. peak time) was awkward and not as helpful or friendly as the wait staff for the after-work event

Date had a fly in their old fashioned. Replaced drink and comped. Very limited number of entrees on the menu. Gnocchi was good and so was the crab cake appetizer. Pork belly seemed extra fatty. Friday night over Labor Day weekend was nearly empty.

My sister and I were in Denver to explore the foodie scene... They were aware of this, including that we were on day 4 and in a walking foodie coma, and they did everything to make our dining experience amazing! We did a seven course tasting, with some custom twists we appreciated, and the only thing that slowed us down was getting too full (which they handled great as well, packing up the main wagyu beef and giving us sorbet before we had to make room for chocolate - and yes... the perfectly textured beef was phenomenal cold, right out of the fridge for breakfast the next morning!) The snails were my favorite, though. I had a moment...there might have been a little tear...it was creamy perfection! I was even very pleasantly surprised that the sommelier took me outside of my comfort zone, with some varietals I don't trend towards, but loved every pairing! Well done everyone!

The food is very good. However, our waitress left much to be desired. We were continually waiting for her to come around. We found it very difficult to obtain adult beverages as well as water. Other tables near us received drinks and bread before us, yet we were seated first! Still, I will return to the restaurant because it has good bones - great atmosphere, great food. The chicken is simply amazing! Also note they serve large portions!

I had the sea bass, which was very good, but besides the fish and the tomato/cucumber relish it sat on, there was nothing on the plate. It would have been nice if there was a potato or two, or a few spears of asparagus, some kind of accompaniment, especially for the price of the dish.

We had a great experience here! I was looking for good food near the Pepsi Center and I have found it! Yes, it was a bit expensive but you get what you pay for. The house white wine was fantastic. Also loved the music!!(alternative).
The food was delicious,seasonal and all made from scratch with French roots. The bread(baguettes!) and butter (truffles) was fantastic.
We really enjoyed our dining experience so much that we were a bit late for the concert. The staff was knowledgeable and took good care of us.
We shall return to Coohills!!

I've been to Coolhills twice before. Service and quality were excellent.
However the reservation system is a TRAIN WRECK.
We made reservation through Coohill's which directed us to Open Table.
I knew from past experience they sometimes close around the 4th July, so I noted this in comments and ask them to reconfirm if they were closed on July 3.
I confirmed with Gretchen (hostess) 5 days prior to our reservation and replied to an online request to confirm one day prior. We show up for a birthday dinner and the restaurant in closed.
I'll not return because this has happened more than once.

We had a wonderful dinner at Coohill's. Chef Ben prepared a 5-course tasting menu for us, and we really felt like we were treated like royalty. Ben served us each course, explained what it was and how it was prepared, and enterained us with interesting stories about how he became a chef. Our server was attentive without being obtrusive. We will definitely be back.

The wait staff was unorganized and unable to deliver what we ordered either timely or accurately.

The food was good but not as good as touted or expected.
