We serve chef Alex Seidel's interpretation of sophisticated comfort food paired with an eclectic wine list and impeccable service. Our menu and wine list will change seasonally throughout the year.

I did not like our table in the galley where it was very tight and constant staff walking back and forth. I couldn't put my feet on the floor because the metal table legs were right where my feet were. I didn't like that the cheapest bottle of Pinot Noir was 68 dollars. I made reservations 6 weeks in advance and drove 2 hours to eat there. I wish I had a table in the main dining room. The table for four in the back was empty when we got there and they sat what looked like a walk in of 3 people there and the four of us sat in cramped quarters in the galley.

Another great meal at Fruition. The service was spot on, and every dish was delicious. All 4 appetizers were greatly enjoyed. We highly recommend the pasta carbonara, the crudo, the octopus, and the oysters Rockefeller. The scallops entree was good, and the lamb lion entree was even more delicious. Dessert did not disappoint either with the lemon meringue and the carmelized Palisade peach panda cotta being especially memorable. Service is attentive without hovering. We really love Fruition!

They were running behind and we had to wait about twenty minutes past our reservation time, but they accommodated us with drinks outside while we waited.
Had I known the food would be so tremendous I probably could have waited an hour and been fine.
It was quite literally the best meal I've ever eaten--and I've been to Frasca

I read multiple positive reviews of this restaurant online and thought that it would be a good last night choice before departing from Denver airport. While this restaurant is acceptable, I felt that the quality of the food was just average. My wife's duck was passable, not exceptional, and my plate was the scallops of which I have had much better. The seating we had was cramped, not quaint, and the plates and bowls were too large for the table space. They do have a knowledgeable and friendly wait staff and a good selection of wines and beer. I am accustomed to a much more flavorful and refined cuisine from a restaurant rated 4.7 on Open Table.

Another great experience at Fruition. Jen has been a terrific addition to the front of house and makes every visit even more special.
The octopus appetizer that my husband had was incredible! ( as was my oyster rockefeller appetizer)
My steak entrée was perfect, one of the best steaks I have ever had. My husband's lamb entrée was top notch as well.
The stuffed cherry amuse bouche and starter glass of wine were great touches as well.
Martini's were also perfect.
What else can I say, this place is perfection...

Food was wonderful. A little pricey. Service was good. However, don't be in a hurry to leave because it takes a few hours to enjoy the food.

The food was meticulously prepared. The recipes were hit or miss, though. The oysters Rockefeller were to die for. The duck surprisingly was lacking in flavor (not the accoutrements but the duck itself}. The cod was very good with a crispy outside that was a perfect contrast to the soft fish inside. The service was very professional; the environment understated and classy.

We have dined at Fruition a half a dozen times or more over the past three years and have gave it a five star rating a couple of years ago. This time I found the food quality has declined a bit. The octopus was still stiff and chewy. Too much lettuce with the scallops. The lamb was a bit overdone. The duck was, and always has been, terrific. For summer dining, we found the food heavy for a restaurant that focuses on seasonal menus. Although the food was good, it failed to meet our expectations based on previous dining with this restaurant. Ambiance still pleasant and service is still very good. Never felt rushed. We think Fruition may need to "re-up" their game to compete with the best of Denver dining.
