The Highlands are fast becoming a mecca for dining out, and LoHi pulls its weight and then some! Always an amazing service experience, and the food is delicious! The Lamb Tenderloin is true culinary artistry!
Had a wonderful evening and the steak was awesome Will be back !!!
Service was very good and the happy hour was nice treat. Was with a group and most enjoyed the overall experience but all agreed the quality of the food was mediocre at best. The Shepards Pie was filled will very fatty beef and zero veggies as advertised. The steaks were the quality of a king soopers special of the meat aisle. That all said, the waitress and management were accommodating to the poor food and adjusted the price. THANKS for recognizing that need!
So it took us about 6 months to get back but we finally did it. My wife is in a wheelchair and the first time we went we couldn't even get in! The food was really very good but the service was outstanding, our waitress took very good care of us as did the rest of the staff. The only downside to LoHi Steakbar is parking.
Great service. Thank you. Both enjoyed the meal. No room for dessert tho.
I love the area and had never been to LoHi - we went to brunch on Father's Day. Sadly, I was not impressed. The service was very slow - even though there were only two tables with guests in the area we were seated in. Although we were warmly welcomed immediately, we were slow to get drinks, and it took more than 20 minutes for someone to take our food order. I ordered the flat iron steak and it was cooked to perfection. The French fries and brussel sprouts we over-salted - so much so that I sent the brussel sprouts back. My friend ordered eggs benedict. The eggs, rather than being poached, were very close to hard boiled.
Bottomless mimosas and Bloody Mary's....nice selection of entrees.....reasonable pricing
NY strip was fatty and grizzly - unacceptable. Salmon was interesting with puréed parsnips that were too sweet tasting; creative slaw with it, side of roasted brussel sprouts good, although a bit too buttery/ oily for our taste. Servers worked on team approach; nice idea but felt like no one in particular really cared about us as customers.
I would NOT consider this to be a steakhouse. Too expensive to be considered a "joint ".
Cannot recommend; we won't return.
The beet salad was amazing with fresh arugula, nuts and tasty beets. The seared scallops were juicy and again presented with fresh, pan sautéed carrots and shaved asparagus. My friend found our booth somewhat load and the staff accommodated her and lowered the music. Nice people, and I love it when the owner stops by to say hello and check on your water.
BUT.... the service this time seemed off. Food is ALWAYS great, and I normally have amazing service.
Absolutely Faboulous for a quick last min Mothers Day lunch
We have been to LoHi twice. Once for dinner and once for brunch. Both times the food was excellent! Great service fast friendly and helpful. Love this place!
My NY Strip was full of fat and tendons, the flavor was good, but if I'm paying $30 just for a steak (no sides included) it should be a better cut than what I could pick up at King Soopers. My dates roasted chicken with asparagus and mac n cheese was delicious though. I just expect to get a better steak at a so-called steak bar.
This is a wonderful location in the heart of LoHi however, it is time to close the doors (the space is so tired), redo the space and come up with a new menu and concept that is more current and desirable for the neighborhood. This location is full of possibility!
My husband only eats meats and vegetables and when we come here he could easily order a few steaks. The blue cheese butter is the perfect compliment to any piece of meat!
The scallops melt in your mouth as you bite in to them.
There isn't a bad thing to say about LoHi Steakbar!
The service was wonderful. When they heard my husband has back problems, they offered to find something to support his back. Then came champagne on the house for his birthday!
The filets were delectable. Cooked perfectly with a crunchy searing outside and a moist texture inside.
Will go again and again!
When this restaurant opened the food was special. It has become a popular neighborhood spot now and both the food and service have diminished as a result. My baked potato was cold and its replacement arrived slowly and was just warm. I hope the restaurant returns to its roots because right now it is living off its reputation.
Lohi was a great place. The waitstaff is super friendly, the food is amazing, and they have a great wine list. The ambiance is great, but since it is kind of a bar there is a little more noise then your usual restaurant. I had the roasted salmon, it was incredible.
My wife and I went on a date for restaurant week, so the plates were only $30 a piece with app and desert included. Both main meals were amazing as well as the deserts. The calamari salad I had tasted OK but it ran through me. My stomach was hurting by the time we left the restaurant and I believe it was the calamari and not the peppers with it. The service and wine list were great.
The wines on happy hour were great and the drink specials looked like they might be worth another trip but the food was really not good. REALLY not good. We split French onion soup and a house salad to start- the soup was bland and the salad was nothing special with a vinaigrette that just tasted like vinegar; I can make both at home much better. I got the flat iron steak which was not a good choice, it was fatty and tough with a very weird flavor, I couldn't really eat it and my dining companion's meal was also eh. Dessert was good but not at all worth sitting through dinner to get it.
The food and mixed drinks were Very good. The service and wine list could use some work.
We arrived in between menus and the staff was extremely willing to help us and made us feel right at home. The food was also excellent!
Found this restaurant through their Denver restaurant week menu and was not disappointed. Excellent steak and their happy hour drink pricing was fantastic. When I'm next in Denver, I would definitely return.
The service was excellent and some of the food was tasty, but my salmon was undercooked as well as my husband's steak. Not quite what I was expecting for a steak bar.
Unfortunately our dinner at LoHi Steakbar left a lot to the imagination. We went for restaurant week, hoping to have a nice, decently priced meal. My husband ended up ordering from their main menu, but I decided to go along with the restaurant week menu. I ordered the pork belly, which was overcooked, but the mustard sauce on top was nice. The second course I ordered was the the flatiron steak which was good, but nothing outstanding. The pomme frites which came with the steak had a great taste, but soggy in parts. Along came dessert, which was called bread pudding, but was more like an overdone biscuit. The only good thing about dessert was the Little Man's Ice cream on top of the "bread pudding". My husband ordered the Shepherd's Pie for dinner and enjoyed it, but his dessert was also a bit of a letdown. He ordered the carrot cake, which came out as a hefty size, but it was not moist and the taste a little different from a true carrot cake. At the end of the meal our waitress charged us $20 more than our actual dinner was I was ready to get out of there. She was very kind and quickly corrected it in her defense. At least my conversation with my husband made up for the lack of taste at LoHi Steakbar. I don't think we will be returning.
Seeing a neat charge on the bill was annoying. An extra charge to open the bottle and pour whiskey in a glass?? I guess it was .5 ounces more, however, why not just pour the normal amount and drop the charge?
My wife and I went to the LoHi for Denver restaurant week. When we arrived we saw that the soup for the special was Beef and Barley and we mentioned that we really wanted the French Onion. The chef was kind enough to make the French Onion soup special for us. That was very much appreciated by us. The rest of the food was very good. The Pomme Frites were the best I've had in a long time. Out steaks were tender and cooked perfectly. The dessert was the highlight of the meal as it was very decadent.
Went there for VAlentine's Day. Drinks in the bar were very good. Dinner, however, was disappointing. My steak was fine. My wife's however was overcooked. When they brought a replacement it came with no sides. So they had to go back again for those. The manager apologized and brought my wife a side salad. That was it. They didn't do anything else to address the inconvenience. Server was friendly, but not very good. Doubt that we'll go back.
It's really a bar masquerading as a steak house. Went with the Valentine Day's special. Salad was over-dressed, both steaks were under-cooked by a full level (e.g., asked for medium and clearly got medium-rare) and the desert (bread pudding) was dry and doughy. Really disappointing.
We've lived in the neighborhood for 5 years and have frequented LoHi Steakbar many times. We used to get the filet with fries for $28 total. Now, with the new ownership the menu has changed and the filet is $31 and if you want a side it's an additional $6. So they've adopted the a la carte steakhouse experience. Which is fine, if you can justify the added expense, but we feel like the entire experience from service to food has all gotten worse. For example, I ordered a filet medium well and they cooked it butterfly style which is fine, but the top portion was cooked medium rare and the bottom portion was cooked well done. VERY disappointing! If we are going to spend $125 for a good dinner we'd rather go to The Keg, The Chophouse, or Elways (and spend a little more). We will not be returning.
It should be call HiLo. Because, the menu looked promising but unfortunately the food preparation was poorly executed.
We went craving a steak as that is what we usually partake in when we go, that and a black pepper martini but that is another story all together. We were ready to order and we saw one of there blue cheese burgers go by, needless to say we had to try one. It was indeed the right decision, it was amazing! The awesome fries that they have are worth the trip alone.
Service and food were both excellent. The booth was tight for four, and we're not large. While the televisions were muted, the sports crowd was not. If I had known there were tvs I would have come here for a different reason other than a birthday meal. BUT, reading other reviews, I'll have to come back and try the blue smoke burger. My NY Strip Steak was cooked to the perfect temp, and that's the bottom line.
We found out that the ownership had changed, but the feeling was still great. We tried the poutine with chicken sausage for an appetizer, and I had the salmon for my entree. We enjoyed all of the food, we were just sad that the house-made ketchup is no longer available. This is still one of our favorite places to come for special occasions.
LoHi Steakbar failed to deliver as we attempted to entertain family from out of town (total 6 guests). Appetizers/starters were salad, soup, and Pierogis. Unfortunately the pierogies came out at the same time as dinner. Four of the four steak entrees ordered were not cooked properly. The waiter had failed to give us much attention, so the management staff and another waiter filled in. Since my steak was forgotten, then subsequently brought out long after the other five in the party, management was kind enough to cover the cost. Since I was the one pushing for the pierogi appetizer, I was left eating alone long after all other plates were taken away. On a positive note, the wine selection and quality were pleasing.
The redo of LoHi is so much better - great manager, much better menu, food & service - makes me sad that it was empty - c'mon people, please give it another try.
The food was awful! French fries were still frozen and uncooked. Oyster appetizers were dried out. I thought with new chef things would be better, much worse!!! Take that one off the list to go back to.
When we first came to LoHi Steakbar, we were so pleased with our new "find". In particular, we really loved the mussels. We have gone back 4 times since, bringing friends, and have ended up feeling disappointed each time. This visit may have been our last.
On this recent visit, we were so-o-o disappointed in the new recipe for the mussels, as well as the fact they were not plump as fresh mussels should be (and were on visit #1 on the same date). Ordered two appetizers of mussels to share and ended up returning one of them, untouched, to the kitchen. Just did not like the new recipe. I understand there is a new chef/partners - don't know if it's possible to switch back to the former recipe.
In addition, the former skinny fries were replaced with regular fries - could go to McD's for those. A third of my Steakbar steak was tough and sinewy. Left a good bit of it on my plate when I couldn't cut or chew through it.
We really liked the music, but it was turned up way too loud for conversation. And of course, that meant everyone in the bar and at the tables was yelling to be heard.
Server was very nice and efficient - not her fault the food was poorly prepared.
So, not sure we'll return. This was a very disappointing visit.
Price has definitely gone up with new ownership, not necessarily sure if the food is worth the price. I got grilled fish with a bean acompanyment which were only cooked al dente. They weren't very good although waitress said when she has ordered the same item it was cooked that way.
With $10 bottomless bloody marys and mimosas, we were psyched to find this place. They were generous with pours too. Great service.
