Even though we had a reservation, they were doing first come first serve. We waited almost 40 min after the scheduled reservation to finally get seated. Wont be booking this restaurant on open table in the future.

We live a few blocks away and just love this place. We were nervous during the shutdown given the model of this restaurant, but thankfully they offered take out (which we did on several occasions), but dining in is definitely my favorite. The food was delicious, service was on point. This is one of our favorite neighbors restaurants for good reason.

Clearly they are trying very hard to work with a short and inexperienced staff. Several visits here and this was the worst experience we’ve had. That being said we still love it here and will try again in the future.

wife and I went here for Sat. Brunch, it was very well set up, lots of choices and the meats that were served were delicious and oh so tender and cooked to perfection. The wait staff was excellent, very friendly and helpful. Our server Michael was the best!
We will be coming back again soon.

Overall would have been much higher rated but three issues bothered me during the meal:
1. lipstick on a glass that we almost drank out of
2. Hair on the table as soon as we sat
3. Rude gaucho who tried to tell me something was well done when it indeed wasn’t (the outer coat was dried/cooked too fast but the inner steak was a very pink hue). He was even argumentative. I frequent steakhouses like this regularly. He didn’t come back to our table the rest of the night.

The positives
1. waitstaff was impeccable in their service. Nonjudgmental and answered questions
2. Management had a constant presence
3. Free parking and location

I had a reservation to celebrate a birthday. We were seated upon arrival and immediately ordered our drinks. After having hit the salad bar, and having me more than half way through our meal, our drinks had yet to arrive and our server had not checked on us since having brought our still water. I brought it to a different server’s attention and after another 5-10 minutes, received our drinks. After all said and done, I spent nearly $250 on dinner, had no acknowledgment for the birthday celebration and the celebration was a bust. Save your money and go to the Fogo in Lone Tree. They’re WAY BETTER!

The meats was not up to the usual standard. Most of the meat we got came out very dry and over cooked, did request for a less cooked meats. Despite coming here every week, they still don’t know what we like. Service was good.

We were celebrating a birthday and notated that in the reservation, however it did not seem to be noticed by the service staff. We were squished into a corner. The service was overall very slow. Had to let the floor manager know that we needed more of the meat service. Have had much better service at other locations.

We had a great experience. The food is absolutely delicious and perfect if you eat vegan or gluten-free like I do, because you don’t have to get the meat service, you can just eat from the fresh bar. Tons of fresh green food & fruits to chose from.
Unfortunately they never asked to refill my husbands beverage but they refilled mine repeatedly (both of us non-alcoholic.) I felt bad since we were there for his birthday and he ended up drinking water the whole time.
Other than that, our service was excellent and our server even gave him his choice of dessert on the house, for his birthday!
FYI: It is a busy noisy place with no dress code (prepare to see nicely dressed patrons mixed in with a “gym shorts and t-shirt” crowd.)
A good experience overall - we would go back!
