We were very impressed by the food and presentation. This is a great little gem on the 16th street mall. The oysters, steak tartare, scallops, mussels and lobster were all fantastic

Wonderful food and service! Table cloths might help the noise level-- it definitely got really hard to hear once the restaurant filled up. Beautiful space though.

We had a lovely dinner at LeRoux two days ago. The ambiance and decor were just beautiful. Service was excellent. Our waiter, Steven, was very knowledgeable about every aspect of the menu and also the wines. We loved the mushroom mille feuille and the cauliflower creme brulee. Then we shared the delicious scallop dish and the chicken roulade. We had cherries jubilee for dessert. It was all very memorable. It's very impressive to learn that Chef Lon spent 2 years planning out every aspect of this restaurant and each terrific dish. This attention to detail certainly shows.

My husband was basically sitting in the serving station which was super awkward. We asked our server to recommend a mocktail for our teen- he suggested lemonade. He also forgot her tea. He seemed very frazzled and put out. The food was ok- was expecting more.

My wife and l had a great dining experience at LeRoux! Loved the vibe, look and feel of the restaurant and to say the food exceeded our expectations is an understatement! We had the Wagu Beef Tartar, the Froie Gras pate, cauliflower creme brûlée, and the French Onion Short Rib. All were wonderful. Thanks Chef Lon and the rest of the team from front to back of the house! Everything was great!

Awesome restaurant and it is so pretty inside. We had a very knowledgeable waiter-helped us pick out a French wine and did a nice job explaining the menu and giving us recommendations. The cheese plate was a hit. I don’t think there is one menu item you can go wrong with. Everything looked spectacular coming out of the kitchen.

Disappointed in our lunch here. We love ChoLon and we were really looking forward to this but it did not meet expectations. The cheese board was good but tiny portion and very little bread (like 2 slices) when we requested more it took almost ten minutes and they charged 2 dollars for two more pieces of bread which seemed cheap.
Mussels were tasty but heavy on potatoes and light on other seafood. For 18 dollars not a great value. My husband’s Croque was very good. But this place is not particularly special and we will not be back.

From the moment we arrived at Le Roux we were treated as honored guests. The food was quite remarkable: innovative combinations of tastes, all beautifully presented. Steven, our server, was knowledgeable and attentive and it appeared as if there was always someone nearby to fill a glass, take away an empty plate or check to see if we needed anything else. I hesitate to lavish too much praise for fear that we won't be able to get a reservation the next time we want to dine there.

This restaurant is very new but our dinner took almost three hours and it was not full. Very slow and I was disappointed with my meal. Had the bioullabase and it was 99% mussels and a small amount of some unknown fish.

Had a date night here and it was awful. We had bad service all around; we were seated in the bar area even though we had a reservation, and were told there were no available tables when we could see that there were, and our server seemed inexperienced or uninterested in serving. The recommended wines were boring and poorly paired with the food, our appetizers (and later the desserts) came out separately, but things really got bad when my duck came out well-done (if I had been asked how I wanted it I would have said medium, but medium rare is standard for duck). We waited for 20 minutes (while my husband’s entree got cold), and it came out well-done again. Our server tried to argue that I didn’t know what I was seeing or tasting (this was the third time I had duck this month btw) and the manager apologized but had to be convinced to comp the entrees.

As for our other dishes, the chicken liver mousse and beet salad were nice (but no different than every other restaurant), the cauliflower creme brûlée was not brûléed at all and was overpowered by nutmeg, the short rib was great, and the crepes were inedible, the texture was completely wrong (they spread with a fork like a paste) and the alcohol was not cooked off (I wish they had been taken off the bill like the manager promised).
If you are looking for similar food in this area, I recommend going to Avelina (I had the duck there 2 weeks ago and it was great).

The food was delicious and beautifully plated. My one quibble was that I requested bread and was charged $4 for two small baskets. Given the price of the food, this was annoying. The service is leisurely. We went on an unbusy Sunday night and dinner took more than two hours.

Noise level was very loud. There was a group of 5 young people sitting next to us and it seemed like they were screaming the entire time. Food was pretty good...but the menu nor the server described the menu items well. Also, the chairs were VERY uncomfortable...you couldn’t even lean back.

Just had a fabulous anniversary dinner at LeRoux! Our server, Taylor, made the night special and she was so knowledgeable about the menu and each dish that her recommendations were spot on. We enjoyed a cheese selection to start, followed by the Brussel Sprouts and the beet salad. Our entrees were the duck and the chicken and both were outstanding. The special anniversary dessert, which was totally unexpected, topped off the dinner. Thanks for a great evening - we are stuffed!

This is a nice little restaurant and we enjoyed our experience. It was incredibly loud though and we were hoping for something a little more intimate. The cheese plate was amazing - great selection and really quality cheeses. The pate was ok. I had the duck and it was incredible. Great preparation and really creative and delicious sides. My husband had the french onion ribs and that dish was not at all what he expected. The flavor was good overall, but there was way too much fat and not enough meet.

Highlight was definitely dessert. We had the Paris Brest with a latte. The Brest was incredible - tasty, crunchy, fresh. The latte was also very delicious.

The food was very nice. Front of house is rough— not very friendly and more bothered than anything. Wait staff is nice enough but not great at describing dishes. Everything was described as “awesome” or “great” but not very descriptive otherwise. Thursday night and place was dead. Should be hooping if it was the new hot restaurant in Denver. Feel bad for chef because food is very nice but staff is nowhere near other foodie restaurants in Denver.

Excellent dinner. The beef Tartare with the dome of smoke along with the eggs and caviar made it delicious change-up from the run of the mill. Our table ended up getting most of meat courses and they were all excellent. We got a table towards the back, the front seemed a bit loud. Great venue for a business dinner.
