For getting the chef menu and wanting to spend a nice dining experience with Mizuna, I was disappointed in the overall experience. My cocktail had a sticky substance on the bottom of the glass and would lift the entire table cloth up everytime I took a drink. Secondly, we let them know of a food allergy and they still brought out a dish with the ingredient incorporated. Lucky I caught that it was in there before we ate any of it. Very unhappy with this experience, especially ordering the chef tasting corse. Should be much better service for the price. There way of making it up to us was giving us 2 donuts. How nice (sarcasm)

None of the experience was due to the waiter/waitresses we had. They were great.

We had the chef tasting menu with the reserve wine pairing for my 30th birthday. (I am a Dietitian who loves food for reference). It was wonderful. Creative dishes with passionate flavor combinations. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the Sommelier was very informative. We dined in the wine room which was very romantic. I would highly recommend.

Great for special occasions or just to treat yo'self to a nice dinner. Very friendly and helpful staff. - they brought us a champagne toast as we were celebrating our anniversary. I had particular items I wanted to try, so I did not do the tasting menu, but will try that next time. Beef tartare and halibut were highlights. The lobster in the lobster mac and cheese would have been exceptional on its own - which elevated a dish that can usually rely more on the cheese and butter. Will be going back!

We hadn’t been to Mizuna for 5 years although we used to go often. We are both happy to have seen that it’s now as wonderful as it had been in the past. Beautifully balanced dishes and wine list is great as well.

Mizuna is by far one of the best restaurants in Denver. Waitress Heather is knowledgeable of all menus items, efficient but times the selections perfectly. While it is not cheap it is worth every penny!

Our server, Heather, was amazing, as was the entire meal. Wine recommendations from the sommelier were right on target, and with respect for our budget, as well. These out of town besties visit at least once or twice per year and Mizuna is at the top of their list for restaurants. We would take home a bathtub of Lobster Mac & Cheese if we could! With all of Denver’s growth, it’s nice to see a fantastic restaurant like Mizuna consistently deliver the best in food and service—and deserve the loyalty and praise it deserves from its guests.

Mizuna is our favorite restaurant in Denver. We have been coming there for more than decade for special occasions like our wedding anniversary . The staff is great, the food is wonderful and a great bargain for the price. They have a great wine list and their personnel are great at matching wine with food. The staff is well trained and attentive, without making you feel at all rushed. It is small and intimate without feeling crowded. Every time we go there we feel welcomed and can't wait to do it again. Awesome experience.

Googled “best chef owned restaurants” and Mizunaived up to that challenge. Service was exceptional and we were treated to the chefs choice 6 course meal. Fabulous from the escargot appetizer to pasta w rabbit to the entrees of scallops and veal cutlets. My first time here and brought my daughter for a special night . Now a must to bring my wife back to share this treat. Thanks to all that made out night special.

Absolutely amazing food! We were both gluten free and our server and the chefs were more than accommodating! The escargot was my boyfriends favorite and I absolutely loved the duck two ways he had for his main course! The Pot de Creme was also awesome for dinner. We went for a birthday and received complimentary glasses of champagne which was a great touch. Would go again in a heartbeat!

Fabulous as usual. I had the octopus appetizer and I can’t recommend it enough just superb and then for dinner I had the pheasant which was a delight. For dessert I had the strawberry rhubarb and it was scrumptious. My friend had the escargot appetizer which was definitely a switch from the norm so if you’re brave it was tasty but nothing like an escargot bathing in garlic; this had a lovely hollandaise sauce and the snails were very nice I did try it. My friend had scallops which were fabulous as well but she passed on dessert. Every meal we have had here has been iabsolutely fabulous zero complaints perfect staff wonderful anbiance; we are going to make it there once a month as I live outside of Denver.

My husband treated me to Mizuna for my birthday this week and it was everything we could have hoped for - amazingly delicious food (especially the Lobster Mac & Cheese and the Hawaiian Kanpachi), super tasty and inventive cocktails, knowledgeable and very friendly staff, a few surprise birthday treats and even though it appeared several guests were also celebrating birthdays, they gave us a special, semi-private corner table in the wine room. We were actually able to hear each other talk! And if you like rich chocolate, do not miss the Warm Chocolate Cake for dessert. I'm pretty sure it's what dreams are made of. A visit here is reason enough for celebration.

We celebrated a birthday here and the service was impeccable. The night before, I was called and asked if there is anything special I would like to do for the birthday, and I jokingly said that they can put flowers on the table. When we arrived at the restaurant, there was a beautiful vase of two roses and a happy birthday card from the restaurant.

Our server Rocco made us feel like the k my guests in the restaurant. He explained everything we asked and even worked with the sommelier to pair two of our courses.

Definitely expected a higher total, and was surprised to see the final bill. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend again.
