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.

What happened to Mizuna? We were disappointed this weekend when both our entrees were served barely warm. The Halibut was beautifully seared, and apparently left sitting for quite a while before arriving at the table.

We have celebrated our wedding anniversary at Mizuna for 18 years, and this is the first time we wished we had gone elsewhere

It's a small and quiet restaurant with just a few seats at the bar. The sommelier has a great knowledge of the large wine list and I found a nice 2011 Vosne-Romance that went well with our meal. The octopus appetizer was tender and delicious and my wife's foie gras quickly disappeared. The beef wellington was done perfect and the lobser mac n cheese was delicious. Our sevice person Zack was friendly and professional. Highly recommended this to everyone.

I took my niece to Mizuna for her birthday. We were greeted with a birthday wish, there was a “happy birthday “ card at our table and when we were seated, server brought glasses of Prosecco. These touches made the evening more celebratory and special.

It was a big birthday, but Mizuna was up to the task. We went for the tasting menu. Absolutely sublime. It started with some kind of quail egg with foil gras that was warm on the outside and cool on the inside. Magical. Then beer cheese soup, then squid-ink pasta, then a huge,juicy scallop, then beef that melted in your mouth, then dessert of the gods, and white and dark chocolate truffles. Perfectly paced; not enormous but perfectly sized portions.
Mizuna would have one or two Michelin stars if it was not in Denver. The service, wine list, ambiance, and of course, the cuisine are just exceptional. Best special occasion restaurant in the mountain west. One of the best places to eat, anywhere.

Service was attentive and excellent. The food was a bit over priced and we really didn’t enjoy the food. The portions were small and left us wanting more.

The fiddleheads were over cooked and really took away from the scallops. Both my date and I felt they were inedible.

We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation and the hostess went out of her way to
find a table for us. The service was exemplary, attentive, but not overbearing.
A short, but well thought out menu. Excellent wine list. We will go back.
Frank Bonnano does it right.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The only complaint is it's priced a bit high for the value. So it limits us to a much lower frequency.
The staff is great! They were spot on. Wouldn't change a thing.
And with parking being a nightmare in that part of town, having the valet is a necessity. They were really fast.

A first class establishment with highly knowledgeable staff, extensive wine list and food at its best.
Talk about a professionally run long term institution in Denver- It is “the best”

We had celebrated our 10th anniversary at Mizuna and had such a wonderful experience. We never stopped talking about it. But we always like to try a variety of restaurants, either ones that we had never frequented or new ones. So we finally made it back to Mizuna for our 23rd wedding anniversary and the experience was equally exceptional. A wonderful waitstaff, awesome food and wine, and all aspects enhanced by such an intimate, elegant atmosphere. Again truly memorable. -- Terry and Dawn Hackett

We visited Mizuna for my wife's birthday and it could not have been better. From the pre-dinner coctails to the last sip of Espresso, we had a wonderful time. Our server was amazing as was the rest of the staff and it was easily the best dining experience (our food was ethereal) we have had in years. If you haven't been to Mizuna, you have been missing out...bigtime!

Mizuna has not lost its touch. Impeccable service, outstanding seasonal dishes (as well as my longtime favorite, the lobster mac and cheese), and well-curated wine list. It is easy to forget our old favorites with each new shiny thing to hit the restaurant scene. We will be going back, and soon. Highly recommend the asparagus appetizer - a wonderful taste of spring.

A truly outstanding dining experience, and some of the best service we've ever experienced! My sister and I landed in Denver after a truly terrible day of travel, and Mizuna took fabulous care of us, going so far as to keep the kitchen open late so we could get a full meal. The food was all amazing; unique, thoughtful dishes with unexpected ingredients, all cooked to perfection.

We loved it so much we came back before our trip to Denver was over, and experienced the same level of exemplary service, relaxing ambiance and truly memorable food. I would recommend Mizuna to anyone, whether you're only look for a good meal, or you're looking for a comprehensive dining experience!

Did the tasting menu with reserve wine pairings. Sat in wine room off main dining room at the 4-top in the corner. No better table - we were so happy. Food and wine did not disappoint at any point in the night! Also, portion size was spot on, in our opinion.

We're from TX and this is our go-to place in Denver. We always have the pre-fix with wine pairings. The food was and is always delicious. The wine pairing raised the bar of the meal. The service was wonderful, and quick. We enjoyed the 6 courses (full sized portions) and the dessert was to die for. They even sent us home a wonderful carrot cake in the box to take home in addition to the chocolate bon bon and dessert. Wow, quite an experience.

Our second visit to this wonderful place. Woody was our excellent server. Ryan, once again, chose the perfect wine that matched all our meals. The phesant, scallops, and triple lamb dish were knockouts. We were disappointed with the Ono fish dish and, after a second try the meal was taken off the check. Definitely one of the best restaurants i a have been to.
