Mizuna resonates with quiet conversation. The linen-draped tables and soft yellow dining room perfectly highlight the cuisine, also simple, elegant, and understated. Chef/owner Frank Bonanno has created a special spot for food lovers here. At Mizuna, cooks are given free creative reign over a menu that changes monthly to emphasize pure, seasonal ingredients with clean flavors that make even the most exotic fare seem familiar. Ultimately, this is an American-style restaurant heavy on French technique, influence, and philosophy with flawless service and an eclectic assortment of international wines.

Amazing food! Exceptional service! I surprised my partner with a meal here for her birthday, and it was a wonderful experience. We will be back.

Most incredible dining experience I’ve ever had in my life. Words could not do justice to the amazing atmosphere, service and food that I had. Thank you for a wonderful goodbye on my last night in Colorado

Mizuna was everything we’d hoped for to celebrate our 15th anniversary. Every plate that came out was beautiful... the flavors were inventive and delicious. Every person that served us was thoughtful and knowledgeable. Mizuna was a beautiful experience from start to finish.

Mizuna was the best return in Denver. Not anymore. The meal was just OK
They were not very friendly for gluten free. They did not have or know what was on the tasting menu an said there were no modifications for dietary restrictions. I will never go back.


We had

Tuna Tartar: Ok Boring , No spice

Caprese Salad: This was the best dish of the evening. Great tomatoes and cheese with a nice sauce.

Entrees:

Halibut: Dry and a bit overcooked. Good Sauce.

Lamb Chops: Disappointing, one was rare as ordered the other Medium Well, Favor was just OK. Very small

The prices are premium and I expected more.

The wine list is very expense, very few drinkable bottles under $200. Passed omg wine that evening.

I tried to upload pictures but not working on Open table.

My husband and I were celebrating our 10th anniversary! Our server Jamie was super awesome and knowledgeable as was the sommelier that evening. We opted to skip the tasting menu and create our own. We started with the yellowtail sashimi which was delicious. The mussel Beurre Blanc sauce that goes over the top made it next level. We also had the arugula pasta with octopus and the caprese salad (the balsamic ice cream is to die for). We wrapped up our food coma with the halibut and beef Wellington. Both really good. The whole evening was wonderful!

Have dined here multiple times and really enjoyed it. Had the tasting menu which we have done before and frankly was disappointed. I would have to rate the meal as average which is disappointing because we really like the place.

If you are looking for a very memorable experience, especially for a special occasion, then Mizuna is the place to visit! The staff is very respectful and do their jobs with excellence in mind. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and we were blown away by the experience, the food, and the service. Each plate is treated like a work of art and each plate has attention to every detail. The flavors are very well balanced as well as the textures. 100/10 must go! They ask you about any food allergies and take it seriously. Unforgettable memory!

Mizuna is our "special occasion restaurant" and it has never disappointed. The service makes you feel like an A-list star from the moment you walk through the door to the bittersweet moment it's time to say au revoir. The chef's tasting menu is a favorite of ours. While they can make it as much a surprise as you'd like (or not), you can also give a bit of direction (ex. we asked they avoid foie gras and flan). Expensive, but worth every penny, in our opinion. Enjoy!

Mizuna was incredible! I took my mother there for her 50th birthday and they had a hand stamped card waiting for her, and we got to celebrate with some free bubbles. All the staff were so wonderful, the chef worked with us on my mother's garlic allergy and the sommelier recommended a bottle of wine that fit our tastes perfectly, and we loved it so much we got two bottles! The food was amazing and if you can, I would recommended splurging for the chef's tasting menu. It is definitely an experience we will never forget!

Overall, we enjoyed our night. We love trying new places and mizuna seemed like it'd be unique and fun. There were some aspects of the main course that we loved, rack of lamb and duck leg, but we didn't enjoy the duck best and lamb sausage like we expected. For the price there are other restaurants we'd rather enjoy.

Can’t say enough good things about this little gem of a restaurant. Zach was incredible. Food was outstanding. Only thing I could have used without was the cork in my wine :( but I drank around it. Amazing meal!

This was my first time in Denver, and my girlfriend and I couldn’t have been more blown away by the whole experience: the food, the service, the ambiance. We were celebrating her birthday and they gave us a complimentary champagne toast, as well as some after dinner chocolates. The butter poached lobster Mac and cheese was a few notches above every other Mac I’ve tried, and the Wellington is a MUST TRY dish. While it was more than I’m accustomed to paying, I felt no remorse about paying the check at the end of the meal. Also, Woody is an excellent server, and every other staff member we encountered was top tier. If I’m in town again, I will definitely stop in.

We're from Dallas but everytime we're in Denver we go to Mizuna. The service is amazing and the food is exceptional. We had such a blast that my husband gave them a 25% tip. We went for his birthday dinner and had the tasting dinner with wine pairings. OMG, to die for. Glad I didn't die though. We love this place.

This restaurant is a staple for my visits to Denver. The food and service is outstanding. On this particular visit we had a colleague with food restrictions and the restaurant accommodated us - they provided a wonderful dining experience for everyone in the group. The grilled octopus and pineapple was the highlight of the night!

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and loved Mizuna. Our daughter recommended the restaurant, having spoken highly of it and noting they serve popovers, which we love. The service was excellent, the food (scallops for her, beef Wellington for me) was delicious - very flavorful, and the ambiance, small and intimate, allowed me to stare at my beautiful wife all evening!

Perfect!

Recommend the chef’s tasting menu which has the option of a perfectly paired accompaniment of wines. Delicious bursts of flavor in every bite that was well balanced and satisfyingly filling. The service was impeccable and the staff was super knowledgeable. Highly recommend for diners looking for well executed French cuisine in a rustic yet elegant atmosphere.

Our experience was absolutely exceptional in every way, and a truly genuine one. Zach and Jim went above and beyond to ensure that all of our needs and interests in their beautifully expansive menu were not only met, but exceeded. We can’t fully express our gratitude for such an immensely lovely evening here, but continue to feel it in our memories of this wonderful time at Mizuna. Thank you so very much for all you did to create such a special evening for us!

Three of four at our table ordered the rack of lamb. This translated into two chops, and hardly a rack or even half. The chops were small, perhaps from New Zealand. All three of us found the lamb on the edge of inedible. It tasted gamey or even simply turning bad as if it had overstayed its visit in the frig. It was not tender and had way too much fat for the portion of meat being served. I have never before had anything I didn’t like at Mizuna. If it was just my serving, I’d overlook it. For all three of us to have the same reaction suggests something was not right. This was atypical of this great restasurant, but worthy of note in case some part of its quality control needs tightening.
