Went with 2 friends for a Sunday afternoon brunch. We sat outside under the shade and was very comfortable despite the hot weather. Ambiance was great. The veggie omelette special was fantastic, however, my friends had the salmon eggs benedict and the Chilaquiles and both thought they were just ok. The brunch drinks were very good.

Good food, great ambiance and excellent service. Great cocktail list with reasonably priced options. The beer list can use some help (from my viewpoint).
Most entrees and appetizers are over-priced, but several good lower-cost entrees are available.
We'll definitely go back.

Sat on the patio on a beautiful Colorado evening. The grilled oysters were excellent, followed up with the octopus also excellent, and topped off with the seared tuna salad.
The wine list is very good with plenty of by-the-glass offerings.

My husband took me to this restaurant for my birthday dinner last Friday evening. The food was not what we expected. We ordered the fish special and it came out with undercooked cold rice. We sent that back and ordered the scallops instead and the quinoa was so hard my husband thought he cracked a tooth. The management was apologetic, but we had to leave to go find food somewhere else. The service was mediocre as well.

Scallops were outstanding. All the entrees and appetizers were wonderful. It was a delicious evening. Waitress was very soft spoken and with a mask on, was really hard to understand. That being said, she did a great job serving us. Will definitely be going back.

This cozy restaurant has left the best impressions! Hospitable hosts, delicious dishes, beautiful presentation, wide wine and liqueur list and wonderful dessert. The restaurant was able to accommodate a dairy free entrée which was very convenient. The appetizers were done well, we had the crispy broccoli and trout dip.
I recommend this place to everyone!
I would like to come back here again.

Overall it was good. Will we be back? Probably not.
The restaurant itself is cool.
We started with the Totchas....just tater tot nachos and Humbolt salad. The weird thing was that they came at the same time.
I would have much preferred the appetizer first then the salad.
My husband got his meal served first.
After a few minutes my meal came. Definitely weird that we weren’t served at the same time.
My husband got the filet mignon. This was a special and not on the regular menu. We go to Guard and Grace a couple times a year and he said it was the best steak he’s ever had!...which is obviously saying something.
I got the trout. And it was delicious. The sauce was very flavorful and it was very filling.
This place definitely could have been better had the first two courses been served separately and had our meals been served at the same time.

It takes a really special place for us to go a second time as we much prefer to try new places if we’re going to go downtown.

Solid brunch place. Amazing French toast. Chilaquiles are some of the best in Denver but still room for improvement. Bacon is thick and crispy.

Ok. First off. The restaurant is nice. Lighting is cool. A modern atmosphere. The service was not good. Couldn’t hear her and she didn’t even know the menu. We ordered 3 appetizers. The burrata, the mussels, and the grilled oysters. The burrata was ok, the grilled oysters were the absolute worst things we’ve ever eaten, and the mussels were not good. The mussels didn’t have any sauce—no white wine like the menu said. They gave us bread with them, but there wasn’t any mussel sauce to dip it in. We decided not to order dinner after the disappointing appetizers. Sadly, we won’t be back. But, we have to say—-the highlight was the valet guy. He was super nice!

The food was very good as always. It was a very busy night- even though we arrived at 5:30 for a reservation and were seated immediately the service was seriously lacking. We have dined here for special occasions at least 10 times previously and the service staff is normally what you would expect for a restaurant of this caliber- professional, friendly and attentive to detail. Our experience last night was very disappointing. Our server kept telling us "he was in training" and the person who was supposed to be helping him was very frazzled and harried (and she was not friendly). It was ok but not in a huge hurry to return again.

the food was good but service was so bad. they were obviously off in their table numbering bc we kept getting offered food that wasn’t ours and ours almost got served to other tables. the bellini for mother’s day was a pre-made mix that was not good. apps came out and we didn’t have little plates or silverware. server took our app away with food still on it without asking. soup came out cold. server said there would be dressing already on the salad but there wasn’t...we drove 30 mins to try a new place and were pretty disappointed.

Had an absolutely incredible brunch for Mother's Day. Their specials, including the Lobster Omelet that I chose, was delicious. SO much lobster inside! Our table also had the Humboldt Salad, the Short Rib Hash, and the Bacon Wrapped Scallops. All of which were exceptional tasting. We went with the Smoked Trout Dip and Crispy Brussel Sprouts as apps and we were all happily surprised at how large the portion sizes were for the apps! The trout dip seemed to go on forever and it was so good. We all had boxed leftovers to take home for each entrée as it was all so good and so filling. Absolutely plan to come back for brunch again as there are so many more items on the menu I want to try! I should also mention, I am Gluten Free and they have an array of options and also were happy to accommodate allergy/diet needs! Very pleased with the experience and the overall service!

Honestly some of the worst overpriced food we had in a while. Even burrata which I think is impossible to screw up was bad. Octopus and Seabass dry and lacked flavor. The only eatable item we had was a trout dip. Just ... bad ... food.

Food is always king here. Service is superior and knowledgeable. I have never had a bad dish. Wine is very fairly priced. Full of young trendy folks out for the evening and feels like a party. The only downside is the noise level.
