Contemporary French
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.

We had the Chef’s tasting menu with reserve wine pairing, and it was the refined dining experience we were looking for! One of the best fine dining experiences we have had in Denver.

It was a wonderful dining experience with so much individual attention to us (celebrating our 35th anniversary) and amazing detail to each course served. We were able to request the tasting menu Gluten Free for my allergy and they didn't miss a beat at serving one of the most amazing meals of my life along with perfect wine pairings for each course. BRAVO!!

Simply: the experience was exceptional. There is a level of "good" that makes you satisfied, and there is another level of good that shifts your perspective of evaluation entirely. Each dish of the Chef's Choice (well worth it) didn't "inspire a feeling from the past", they acted as a time-machine: I found myself transported to enjoyable experiences I hadn't remembered in a decade. As much as I tried, I couldn't help but laugh (literally, laugh) as I first tasted each dish... either out of pure awe and appreciation for how fantastic the food was, or maybe, how simple I must be. In this case, on this occassion, I didn't care which.

I could add how each course, or the perfectly aged Old Fashion, made me feel, but its unfair to the chef to prescribe my experience to others with the expectation each visitor will have the same. So, do the restaurant justice, and go have your own. You won't regret it.

The best meal we've had in a very long time. Service by Jamie was excellent, highly informed, never obsequious. But the food. Unbelievably delicious, carefully done and presented. Beef Wellington and duck Breast Maigret the best we've ever had of both.

We had walked from the Denver Art Museum and it was quite blustery and we were chilled to the bone. We were warmly welcomed at the door and proceeded to enjoy one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The service was excellent without being stuffy and the fare was fabulous! Alas, no pictures as we were too busy savoring every bite. Thank you!

I was trying to plan a dinner for my daughter's birthday and I got an email from Open Table that mentioned Mizuna. I am so glad I clicked through to read their menu and look at pictures.
This was my family's first visit and we all loved it. The scallops were delicious, as were all of the other dishes. They have a good selection of wine and bottled beer, no beers on tap. Everyone who worked there was friendly and the service was excellent. We will definitely be going back.

For my birthday, this was not first time. As always they make new tastes so that way, we never have same experience.
We don’t know how they create that new tastes all that time.
But one thing for sure they don’t make us get tired of French.
Thank you.

Food was lack luster. Only the beef cuts used in the beef wellington was seasoned. Everything else was bland and mushy. No flavor. The staff was amazing and the ambiance was dark and crowded. It was not a good birthday experience for my wife.

Mizuna never disappoints. This our favorite restaurant in the Denver area. While we aren't "regulars" the staff remembers us and treats us like regulars. The lobster mac&cheese is fabulous, and a riot would start on 7th Ave if they ever removed it from the menu. The wine list is extensive and well appointed in multiple price points. Jamie, Tim, and the rest of the staff are knowledgeable, attentive, and wonderful at taking care of you. Sit back, relax, enjoy. It's handled.

Had the Chef's Tasting Menu; it was interesting and mostly quite good. House bread was delicious.
Service was very friendly and welcoming, though a little less than perfect (e.g. champagne glasses ran low, used plates sat too long). Coffee was not hot and cream was ice cold, netting cold coffee.

Went here to celebrate a graduation and they made it an incredible experience. They brought champagne to toast at the beginning and the food was incredible. Would highly recommend for a special occasion or when you just want to treat yourself!

This was the best overall dining experience I’ve ever had. Bartender was next level with his craft. The “trust fall” cocktail is the dealer’ choice option and it came up all aces for me. For dinner we had the Ravioli, octopus, and macaroni starters. Only complaint was that the portions were slightly small but there was no lack of taste. Incredible, powerful, and bursting with tons of flavor in every bite. For my entree the Wellington was the choice and it did not disappoint either. A perfect mid rare stark was presented to me with a gorgeous sauce and beautiful potato arrangement.

I visit Mizuna once or twice a year to revisit a paragon of Denver fine dining. As usual every last dish was achingly sublime. The herbed pork belly was deeply savory and perfectly matched with the malt vinegar dusted chicharron. The scallops were perfectly seared and the sweet potato was a beautiful accompaniment. As usual, the service was absolutely perfect. We were never left waiting for food or drink and the waiter and sommelier made excellent suggestions. As usual, this was an incredible dining expierence. Denver is lucky to have Mizuna as a pillar of it's fine dining scene.

Mizuna in general is quite good but maybe not as good as it once was. Service was particularly poor which at their price points cannot happen. Friendly but lacking in professionalism and attentiveness. Food is quite good but a little pricy for what it is. I would still go back but with reservation after my most recent visit.
