really unique concept with all beer brewed with wine. Some excellent brunch cocktails and a really cool atmosphere. They are clearly in it for the drinks and patio vs the food, which was very average.

Nachos were good. We had 2 servers - one of them was good. The patio is beautiful. Everything else was a miss. Food was bad and drinks weren’t delivered.

The first time we came to this first, we were blown away by the creativity and authentic Italian food. The second was good but not as amazing as the first and this third time was such a disappointment. They really changed the menu and got rid of the elegance and creativity. It seemed dumbed down and on par with the olive garden rather than a restaurant that brags all their chefs come from Italy.

The beer was great, we have never had anything like that before! The server was knowledgeable and kind. Food was good but a few small changes could have improved the experience, the food came out room temp and the bread on the meatball sandwiches and plain toast could have been toasted to elevate the dish. I’ll be back nonetheless for beer and apps at the least. Great environment!

Went for the first time with a friend. The restaurant is very spacious and welcoming. The patio is great for nice days, has a large fountain, bocce court and other lawn games. We shared the vegetable hummus and I had the house salad with chicken while my friend had the ricotta raviolis. The portions were very big (the platter was huge!) and the salad was good. My friend said she enjoyed the ravioli but was too full to finish. As others mention, the drinks are a bit pricey but my friend really enjoyed the Italian beer (I just had regular wine). The staff was friendly but the service was a bit slow, especially considering the place wasn't crowded. I live a block away and I never see many people there, but I do hope they are successful. It's nice to have a good restaurant just steps away from where I live, but the area is a bit residential and slightly off the beaten path. I would definitely recommend it for evening drinks outside and a few bites.

Italian nachos were really good but the pasta was meh. A little bland, a little dry. Drinks were good but pricey. Our waitress was great, so nice and helpful and attentive. Lady who seemed to be a manager wasn’t so pleasant. I liked the decor and feel. Huge patio! Would come back but maybe only for happy hour.

It’s great when you go to a place that has a concept. Especially when it’s not pretentious, fake or derivative. The space is great -it’s comfortable, the ambient noise is controlled by wood and leather. The patio is huge. I’ve eaten here twice and without getting into specific dishes everything is awesome. Great wine list too. Then there are the beers. The oeno beers they make are super creative. Grapes are included in familiar styles and new styles too without being gimmicky. All beers are served appropriately for their style and ABV. It’s clear that they believe in what they’re doing and are working to create a new style. And Liberati’s just getting started. The restaurant and bar team are super. Everyone clearly knows about the food and the beers and cares about them. There’s none of the soulless boring recital of what local farm produced the shallots as the server points to the things on the plate and rattles off meaningless descriptions. Service is great without being intrusive. Servers show up at the right moment and the attitude is ‘hey what can we do to help you guys keep partying?’ If you want something new and different and great, go here.

The food wasn’t my favorite. We had pasta and it was lacking in flavor and seasoning overall but we loved the ambiance and location even if a little off the beaten path. The outdoor courtyard is amazing and the drinks were great. We’ll give the food another try.

went there last Saturday evening. Brie, the server, was incredible and clearly a great asset to the business. Noise level was moderate because acoustics are good. Food was very good and reasonably priced. We tried the beer/wine combo but was not our cup of tea. Drank 2 bottles of Chianti instead.

It was fine - we picked it because on yelp is was listed as having vegan options, but it really didn't. Our server invited us to "Taste anything!" so we did, not realizing that the tasters were $5-$7 each. At other breweries, you can often request a very small (1oz) pour before deciding on a whole glass, especially since this place has such a unique offering. The portion sizes were reasonable. I ordered a salad and initially was brought the wrong one. The second salad which WAS what I ordered was terrible. I kept having to pick slimy, wilted and bitter bits of lettuce out of it. It was supposed to have fennel and radishes, which it did technically, but I would imagine that the cost of the salad was less than $1 to the restaurant. There were two small pieces of shaved fennel and less than one radish. I also asked for dressing on the side, but the salad came absolutely drenched on oil and salt, olive oil would drip off the leaves when I picked them up with my fork. My companions liked their dishes but we all concurred about how weird it was to be like "we have a really unique drink offering, please taste whatever you like!" and then charging us for that.

Liberati should be a nicer quality restaurant for what it is. offer nicer food and ambiance and I think you will draw more customers. The bathrooms are on the other side of the restaurant/bar, and you really sense the emptiness of the space when you walk over there.

The positives: The outdoor patio is beautiful, and would be a really fun place for a summer dinner or happy hour. Also, the food quality is obvious, and a lot of attention to detail is paid to the ingredients and the plating. (The tiramisu was excellent!)
However: the flavors in the entrees were bland (and among the four diners, we had appetizers, 3 different entrees, and dessert). The hostess practically rolled her eyes and was reluctant to be bothered when we walked up, which started our evening on an "off" note.
In short, this was a very special 21st birthday celebration, and we collectively decided that we need a do-over dinner at a different location.

Great drink menu, trying the Oenobeers is a fun experience. This restaurant has a great outdoors area and would be fun to hang out at on a summer day. The lower rating is only because the food is just okay and a bit overpriced. I’ll be back to drink but not to eat.

When we arrived and identified a reservation, the reservation was not found. I provided an email from Open Table to the maitre d', who said she has a meeting with Open Table and would address it. She said she had room for us and could seat us.
We had put in our reservation notes that if the weather was cooperative, we were seeking a seat on the patio with our dogs. It was then that we learned Liberati no longer allows dogs on the patio. That was after lots of marketing about the large dog friendly patio! Apparently, they allowed dogs for one day and then stopped! Wish we knew that as we brought our pups for that purpose.
Anyway, we were seated without drink menus. After our server stopped by with them, the maitre d' then sat a different table and took their drink order while we waited for our server to return. It appeared that there were 2 servers for the entire dining room. In that dining room there were 2 large parties seated at almost identical times.
Also, while there for brunch, we overheard the person seated beside us ask for more coffee. The server let the customer know that they use individual pods for coffee and therefore it was not free refills! An interesting position for a restaurant serving brunch and $15 bottomless drinks with alcohol!
The zeppole was delicious. The rest of our brunch was standard.

Liberati was a wonderful surprise. The exterior doesn’t do it justice. It has a beautiful patio and off street parking.
Service was very friendly , the snapper was amazing and the Oenobeers were refreshing.
I highly recommend it .

Very tough to recommend. I was visiting for the weekend and we went here based on strong recommendations of my brother who lives in Denver. The appetizers, beer and bread were great. Lots of misses on the entrees. We ordered one filet, came out improperly cooked the first time, sent back and came out over cooked again. When we spoke with the manager on duty, she was more concerned with getting us out than listening to our concerns. Too many wonderful options in Denver to make this a repeat for me.

We had high hopes after seeing the beautiful patio but they were quickly dashed. Worst scallops we’ve ever had - small, rubbery with bacon - couldn’t finish them and sent them back. Ordered the seafood fettuccini, which was fishy and tasteless and sent it back too after one bite and they tried to charge for it. Ravioli sauce tastes like store bought Ragu. Noisy with poor service. We left hungry - walked down to Biker Jim’s and enjoyed a gourmet Elk dog that had more flavor than any dish we tried. The water gal was the highlight of the place as she kept our glasses filled.
