Our dinner at Linger was so disappointing. So many people recommended this place to us. The food was great, the cocktails were ok. Our service was absolutely terrible. No one greeted us for about 20 minutes. We then didn't get our drinks for about 20 minutes more. We ordered three appetizers and they didn't arrive for over an hour. We were starving, but didn't even order dinner because we didn't want to be there for another 90 mins. Our server never even asked if we wanted to order more food, never asked if we wanted another round of drinks, and never brought us more water. It was absolutely unacceptable.

We love this restaurant for it's ambiance and the food is always excellent and a big variety. We tried brunch today and the tamales were amazing! My son had the lamb burrito and he said it was very good. Definitely recommend both dishes. Also they food arrived quickly, and our waiter was very nice and checked on us often.

I waited 3 weeks for a reservation at Linger. Big fans of the food, wanted a sweet brunch date with my partner. We were taken up to the 3rd level. It was rainy and 50 degrees that day. The upstairs was freezing. The door was open and the fan was flowing directly down on us. We both ordered the Dosa, and I ordered mine vegan. It came out and it had eggs in it. I waited another 15 mins while my partner ate her food and felt awkward eating by herself. I finally decided to get up and find a waiter. They brought me out another Dosa in 15-20 mins. Mind you, my partner (date) was now sitting by herself while I ate. It was really disappointing to us. There wasn’t any mindfulness of the temperature in the building and the other two levels were very warm. Overall we felt really disappointed after waiting for 3 weeks.

We have eaten at Linger four or five times before Covid, including taking friends and family there from out of town. Linger has always been excellent in every way. On 5/11/21 we brought family members for lunch, so were a party of five. Our wait person, Joe, was efficient, personable, attentive, and helpful. We had some diet restrictions and he went out of his way to accommodate those needs. Our problem was with the more limited menu selection and especially with the marginal quality of the food. The pot stickers were greasy and the sweet potato waffle fries were soggy and some were stuck together with water in between. Three of our entrees were just OK and two were a bit better. This is the only time that we have not been extremely pleased with the quality of Linger's food.

Linger is one of my favorite Denver restaurants, and has been for several years. Their food is consistently excellent quality, delicious, and fresh. The servers are friendly and attentive, without being annoying. The mixed drinks are interesting and tasty. On my last visit I had the breakfast dosa and a coconut fizz to drink. My husband had the wagyu sliders. Both meals were delicious. I'm going to try to replicate the drink at home, it was so good. Service was fast. The staff was being very good about wearing masks, and social distancing between tables was being enforced. Overall a great experience, and we will always return!

Would definitely go back!
