The beef Wellington was excellent, one of the best restaurants in Denver.

The food is amazing at this place. if you are looking for an alternative to the standard upscale surf & turf run of the mill American restaurants - this is the place to go to. Really good wine list, food is perfect and service was 5 star all the way through.
Also has a fun bar and an amazing list of old school cocktails with knowledgeable bar staff.
Not the fanciest location but the food and experience is great!

We loved our dinner. We wanted a quiet restaurant with great food where we could take out of town guests, and Mizuna fit the bill. The duck was to-die for. Our servers were excellent.

Mizuna is small - perhaps 20 tables. We went on Wed. so there were fewer diners. It's intimate, very comfortable, and the wait staff was excellent. We got thoughtful recommendations from the sommelier. We're not savvy wine experts but he put us at ease by carefully getting our preferences (category, price range, etc) and describing wines he thought we would like. The food is the real star of the restaurant. There are innovative dishes like warm potato salad, and magret duck breast, all carefully prepared. The style is French. The only downside is that it's a pretty pricey place. You're paying for small-volume, labor-intensive food and a world-class wine list. But if you're a real foody, this is your kind of restaurant. We'd definitely go back.

Had reservations to take my 87 year old French aunt out for her birthday. Everything was amazing. There was a Happy Birthday card on the table waiting for us. The hostess was great, we were seated on time, server and wine sommelier were extremely helpful and very nice. The food. Ohmygoodness, the food. Exceptional. Husband had the venison, aunt had the halibut and I had the arctic char. We were never rushed through the dinner, given great suggestions for wine and dessert (sweet potato dumpling thingy's with marshmallow) and really had a beautiful evening. Very special - thank you, thank you, thank you Mizuna!

OUTSTANDING on every count. Creative/ingenious cooking. Perfect service. Wine steward provided excellent advice to match 3 different entrees.
Request for quiet table was honored although the whole place is subdued. Expensive and worth it.

It was an amazing experience. The food was unlike anything I have ever had and the service was what I imagine a five star restaurant to be. Unbelievable! It was my wife and I for our first wedding anniversary and the staff put a happy anniversary card on the table. So blessed to be able to make that our place for celebrations. Thank you to everyone at the restaurant for making our day special.

Mizuna is a fine dining fixture in a city where dining options have both greatly increased in number and improved in quality over the last 5-10 years. Consequently, while the service and atmosphere at Mizuna are local standouts (Denver's service standards and ethic are very low compared to both coasts and more cosmopolitan landlocked cities), the menu suffers from lack of creativity and mediocre quality ingredients - i.e., not particularly fresh, local, seasonal or even high grade. We ordered the tasting menu paired with reserve selection wines. Again, good service, especially from the sommelier, but the food was actually regretable. Specifically, the fish (salmon) was slightly off and thus inedible, the beef (prepared a la Wellington) average grade, and the dessert was unimaginative in concept and disastrous in execution. None of the other courses stood out. Great wine pairings, though. $500 for two dinners and one wine pairing, including two predinner cocktails.

Our visit was a bit of mixed bag. Entree was off and had to send it back (I never send food back but had to this time). They agreed it was off and comped our food order. My wife's chicken was good and my appetizer were good.
Cocktails were excellent.
Service was not good unfortunately. Our cocktails and appetizers arrived at the same time (when we asked them to stagger them). After that flub, our server basically abandoned us.
Shame really as parts of the dinner were excellent.

My husband and I have come here for our anniversary for the last 4 years. This year the service was off--appetizers at different times (with significant time difference--30 minutes), generally inattentive server. Every other year, everything about Mizuna has been top notch--great service, delicious food, creative cocktails. It was a bummer that it missed the mark for our tenth anniversary :(

The food was incredible and the service was out standing. They always have unique quality dining but last night it was one of the bests meals we have had in a long time and we dine out a lot. It is not cheap but is well worth the visit and experience. Difficult to get a weekend reservation but come early and come often if you enjoy gourmet dining in Denver.

Overall a wonderful experience! We ordered the tasting menu which consisted of 6 courses and it was all perfect. I loved that we were seated in a small wine room in the back, as we had requested a more private dining experience. My only complaint is that during our dinner they also seated a 7 person party in that small room. So, my date and I couldnt hear a word the other said. I understand the restaurant is small and they had to seat them where they could fit them...it just happened to make our night slightly less amazing. But the service and the food were both exceptional and I will definitely return!
