I was an hour early for my reservation and was content to wait it out, but they offered to get me in early. This was one of the best meals I have ever had.

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.

Always love the food. We have eaten here many times and the food never disappoints. The restaurant is starting to look a bit run down, particularly the bathrooms.

Subpar dining experience. Not sure if Denver knows what good food, drinks and service are. We came for the weekend from Philly and I regret wasting my time and money on this place. Extremely disappointed.

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!

Linger has become one of my favorite restaurants; we go there every time I'm in the Denver area. The food is great, and I love the variety on the menu. We've had wonderful service every single time we've visited. I recommend it to anyone looking for a fun night out.

Good food, but quite loud. There’s nothing to absorb the noise. On the pricey side, which makes it less regular for me.

Had friends visiting in town so I decided to take them to Linger. The food was great and they loved the restaurant. They kept telling me how great of a choice I made taking them there. Our server was great and was very attentive to our table. Will definitely go again!

Great food. The chili edamame was AMAZING. But it was our server who made our experience THE BEST. We were there for a graduation celebration and he made it even more special.
Would definitely go back!

The food and drinks were delicious. Would recommend checking out the menu beforehand as the food choices change. The service was a little slow and lacking in promoting specials. We weren’t told about the restaurant week choices, we overheard when they were telling another table. We weren’t warned about kitchen last call until after we put in an order.

Can't say enough about my 5280 Experience here! Allison served me with patience, friendliness, and was very prompt. I started with an amuse bouche of a vietnamese spring roll type bite. It needed a bit more flavor since all I tasted was cabbage and cucumber, but that wasn't the intent. Next, I tried the pork dumplings that had a spicy teriyaki sauce. Fun item to start off with. My entrée was the Korean BBQ tacos. They needed something so I took the sauce from the dumplings and that seemed to complete the tacos dish! The manager, Kenton and I had a fantastic conversation once again. He and I always seem to have a good connection regarding food and the industry. for dessert, I tried the strawberry tamales. Not to try to find fault with the dish, but I felt the strawberry needed to be a bit more and less on the masa. The horchata cream the horchata shave ice!!! The strawberries and cholate bites on the top are a wonderful adder! The things I noted that needed a boost are such minor items; this place is a must try.

My best friend & I always treat ourselves to a nice meal during restaurant week. The food was good & the atmosphere at Linger is always buzzing. I just thought the meal was a little pricey this year for what we had.

We love this place. The food is always great and the service is excellent. We were hoping that they were serving their full lunch menu but they were only serving the brunch menu. This was ok because there is always something good on any menu being served.

unfortunately, everything we ordered unfortunately was bad, Spring Rolls, Waffle Fries were all oily, Pad Thai was not enjoyable nor tasty as well as the Wagyu Burger (brought to us cold) It's but on the higher side the prices, maybe it was an off day for the kitchen when we went, definitely not worth to try it a second time. Service was ok, not like the normal good service around Colorado.

View is deceiving. From the looks on the website and that actual view is night and day. From a out of towner experience, I wouldn’t recommend this. There are condos blocking the city view they claim to have. Disappointing.

Good food but wish there were more vegan options. Got kicked out after an hour and a half because of covid limits on dining. We weren't told this at the time of reservation. This was weird because restaurants are now at 100% capacity in Denver and restaurant was almost at 25% from what I could tell. Service was just ok. It was my birthday and this was told to person on the phone when making reservation. We expected a complimentary desert or at least some sort of acknowledgement. didn't happen. We asked for a candle and server told us they were out.

Great place for dinner-dates or celebrations where the party is between two to six people. Food is delicious and placed well on the plate. Great ambiance that has a bit of art deco style. Fun location too. Drink selections are fun and they have some house frizzy non-alcoholic cocktails that are also pretty good. Get the devils on horseback if you love bacon and goat cheese.

Even though the menu did not include a couple of items that were there before the Covid shut down, the staff went out of their way to provide them. The beet salad and small donuts were very good as usual. Safety rules were also in effect so we had a very enjoyable lunch.

Took a friend to a very nice birthday dinner. The host read the notes and seated us at a nice table on the upstairs with views. The food was fantastic and tried a variety of wines to pair with them. I would certainly go back.

Linger is and has been a favorite of ours for years. We keep going back again and again and they never fail to deliver. I recently took a group of friends who'd never been, and they were blown away! I knew Linger was a sure thing, but it was fun to see them all enjoy it for the first time.
