We celebrated my birthday with our kids and the overall experience was very nice. The food we had was very good; the tater tot nachos were a huge appetizer, the arugula salad with blue cheese was delicious, and my husband and son had the meatball sandwich and Philly sandwich. Everything was worthy to have again! The customer service was very friendly and they were attentive. The ambiance was not special at all, however. There is a curtain hung to block the restroom entrance, stacks of chairs were just pushed to the side of the restaurant and the bar seemed shut down and deserted. I didn’t love the visibility of the kitchen/ help area.
I’d go back but I wish the dining room looked nicer.

We went for the special Christmas Eve dinner and were very disappointed. We've previously eaten at Humboldt several times and did carry out during COVID lock down, definitely our worst experience with the restaurant. The food was mediocre and also it was cold. Since the service wasn't the best, we just ate cold food and left. We'll try Humboldt again, not sure if we'd do it for a special occasion.

I always like Humboldt. The calamari appetizer is really tasty and spicy. My friend liked her tuna salad and I liked my unremarkable yet comforting Caesar salad with shrimp.

The food was definitely not cooked to order, since our entrees were served too quickly after ordering. When you pay $30+ per entree, there’s an expectation that you aren’t going to be rushed through your meal and more importantly, that you aren’t going to be served reheated food.

Humboldt is our go-to place whenever we're in Denver (even when it was known as Strings). Everything recommended by our servers were perfect from the appetizer calamari to the pork entree & caramel apple pie ala mode. The servings were huge enough to fill the 2 of us (which is a blessing since our hotel this time has no refrigerator nor microwave for leftovers).

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday. She loved the food and was very happy. They even comped a desert for her. A little pricey but good for a date night. She was pleased which is really all that matters. Plus they had valet.

Great food, a bit pricey. But enjoyed the appetizers and drinks. Was a little disappointed to be sat right by the door so that was sorta the down-point mixed with having to wave down our waiter multiple times for drinks/service..

Unfortunately, the food and service at this restaurant seems to have gone downhill. The service was okay as our server was attentive but not friendly. The snapper was so chewy that I had a hard time cutting it with my knife. We ordered the chicken tenders off of the kids menu and it definitely looked like it was a frozen meal. The price is way to high for the food to be this grade. This is disappointing as we have been to this restaurant many times and used to love it.

We loved it except for the seating. No one there and they put 2 tables right next to us. Try spacing people out when it’s not busy.
