Linger, the second concept behind Root Down's Chef/Owner Justin Cucci is located in Denver's Lower Highlands neighborhood. Linger’s vibrant menu reflects a broad farm-to-street sensibility with a spin on traditional ethnic eats. Design elements can be described as a purposeful contradiction featuring reclaimed boxcar floors, a brick ellipse, a Lite Brite bar top and infinity windows with incredible views into downtown Denver. The food, the service, the story combine to extract a feeling. Linger is like a mixtape, and we hope it connects. We’re not trying to reinvent food -- it’s simpler than that. We hope to elicit a feeling – like you get when you hear your favorite song.

The food was fabulous. The atmosphere was cozy and we felt very safe with all that’s going on with Covid 19. A wonderful experience.

Great choices with plates ample enough to share and priced to make it affordable to try several. We love the atmosphere and the service is impeccable.

Love the location but had requested for roof top and really wanted that but we kind of were just shoved into a corner, and had a small table for 8 people, also they werent very will to help and we obvy had 8 people and it was a bday I told them all of this. So we were just a bit disappointed and since we went on the weekend it was only brunch and thats a small menu, but we still had a good time and the waitor was nice but not amazing.

The location is amazing right next to Little Man! The pad Thai was incredible and our server was so nice but sadly I don’t remember her name. I appreciate the measures taken to ensure everyone’s safety during COVID. The portions were a little small imo but I also eat an abnormal amount of food so it’s probably just me lol

Our favorite place for family celebrations. We love sharing a wide variety of the dishes so everyone gets a taste. Have never had anything at Linger that tastes less than good- and usually it’s much better than good. Service is professional and attentive. Atmosphere fun and fresh. I appreciate the touch of morgue humor.

Specify when booking an outdoor table. ESP because different menus. More of an open table issue though.

The food here is incredible! It's a little pricey for the serving sizes, but that's to be expected when the food is this outstanding. I will say that our server recommended 10-12 entrees for 6 people, and we were pretty stuffed sharing 7.

Linger never disappoints and is a must if you live or are just visiting. We moved out of Denver a few years ago and every time we came to visit we go to Linger and it’s always a wonderful place for dinner, great service, food and drinks!

Linger is one of my first love's in Denver. Great atmosphere, delicious food, superior service. The Devils on Horseback has to be one of the most popular items on the menu. Do not miss out on this spot!

Very cool set up and the rooftop is beautiful; however, we had a poor experience with the workers who were rude about accommodating our party. Additionally, the food is VERY expensive and you're pay much more for the presentation than for being full.

I wish I could remember our servers name but she had very short hair and was probably the best server I’ve had during covid times. She was so pleasant, attentive and sweet.

Felt like Linger was overhyped from local people. Perhaps it is because I live in LA so I have been exposed to all the flavors and/or dishes on the menu. Not much value for the money in my opinion

My biggest pet peeve is actually a little petty but it's the principal of it. The Wagyu sliders are 18 dollars on the downstairs menu and 19 dollars on the food truck menu... same restruant. Same sliders.... but a dollar more to bring it upstairs? The waitress was alright. The service was decently timed. The food was meh. I actually expected a lot more seeing as it was Wagyu. I mean id go back there but it wouldn't be my first choice. The fact its an extra dollar for the exact same thing is actually pretty annoying.

As a soon to be mortician I had to try this place & it did not disappoint. Loved the open but low lighting & restrooms are sick. The whole place is dope & wasn’t badly priced at all!

I have nothing but good things to say about this place. I made a reservation and was called the same day to confirm. We wanted to sit on the rooftop but were told that it was not guaranteed. But when I showed up for my reservation we were taken to the rooftop and my table was ready right when I arrived. There is nothing that makes me want to come back more than being treated so well. We only had drinks that were great and our server was the perfect level of attentive. Definitely will come back when the service is so fluid and the employees are accommodating!

We LOVED our experience here. Sara was an amazing server, who made us feel at home and well cared for. The pot stickers, pad Thai, and drinks are TO DIE FOR. Not to mention the ambiance- totally sick. Next time we are in town, we’ll be back for sure!!

During the time of COVID when the restaurant isn't very full I expect good-prompt- attentive service. We didn't get that from our waiter. He gave very short answers and wasn't very friendly with us at all. We sat for close to 10 minutes with empty drinks, and we wanted one more. He enjoyed flirting with the table of three woman behind us though.

As always Linger was fantastic. We were celebrating a friend couple getting engaged and Linger was superb. Their new-ish Lamb Wrap is my new favorite Lamb Dish Anywhere. I love Work & Class's coriander lamb and still do but the excellent texture and spices sent me over the moon. Great service, they are doing nicely with COVID and we felt as safe as I suppose you can these days being out. Kitchen staff, praise them, are all wearing masks while cooking. Top notch.
