The service was very accommodating and friendly. The staff worked very well together. The food was outstanding. I thought the prices were a little high, acceptable for the quality of the meal. Valet parking takes care of the parking concerns for the area.
Thanks for making our anniversary very special.
Excellent, professional, friendly, unpretentious service. Fantastic menu and wine list. Best table side service ever. Will go back again and again.
Although still quite nice, this was dining experience was tepid. Not the wow factor in the service or food as in the past. A bit disappointing, given it was a special anniversary dinner.
I would recommend the foie gras for starters and either the duck or Wellington. Both phenomenal choices!
A long time favorite but this meal and service was not good. Too bad. Plenty of good restaurants in Denver that aren’t nearly this expensive. They are not what they use to be
Mizuna never disappoints.
This time (we come here often and have decided this is the ONLY place we will come to for our once-a-month get together), my friend and I ordered the Chef’s Choice. Absolutely incredible! We shared a bottle of Sancerre, which was perfect for the lovely potato leek soup, pasta/mushroom/rabbit, and scallop tasters...so elegantly prepared...so deliciously consumed (if such a phrase exists).
Tim helped us with our red wine choices to drink with the best venison we have ever had! And to finish it all off: scrumptious, sticky toffee pudding. If you try to avoid eating bread, ask your server not to bring you any because you will not be able to resist the fabulous popovers! Tim and staff once again did not disappoint-see you all very soon!!!
Delicious beef Wellington. Tried the striped bass too and it was lovely
A wonderfully creative food experience. Pretty pricey but honestly worth it. Service was excellent and friendly. Comfortable and quiet.
Absolutely blown away! The tasting menu was amazing and the wine pairing made a perfect night!
Enjoyed every minute of our time there. We were there for 3 hours sampling the chefs specials with the wine pairing. It was divine!
We went there for our first year anniversary. The service and the food was amazing, we had the best evening. They accommodated us with champagne and house made chocolate. We felt very special. We will go back for sure!
Excellent food and service, though expensive. Good help with dietary restrictions and allowed to have a leisurely dinner with friends without being rushed. Very enjoyable.
I hadn't been to Mizuna in a couple of years but had a great previous experience and someone had given us a Bonanno Concepts gift card. My husband had never been and since he'd heard people raving he wanted to go. I pushed the lobster mac and cheese which had been really good before. He thought they used Kraft and was not impressed. The yellowfin tuna app was just ok. My duck was good. Not dry, and just good. I did not care for the matcha panna cotta, which was a strange contrast with the duck- just my personal taste. My husband had the veal and thought it was ok. My husband wanted to do the chef tasting but it required both of us to do it and I am on a low carb diet, and the waiter laughed at it even being a possibility. The waiter tried to upsell the wine by 2x when I pointed out which Pinot Noir I wanted from a region I like. When I wouldn't budge, he sent over the sommelier. The sommelier was phenomenal and didn't care about upselling, he just wanted me to have a wine I like. We were sitting too close to the people next to us and we in their conversation. This was not ideal for a dinner date. We declined dessert, and won't go back. If we spend over $250 for dinner, we better like it. We should've gone to Osteria Marco- guaranteed good meal and atmosphere there every time, and a much better value. We left disappointed and remorseful with how much we spent.
The food was excellent as always, and they made it a very special occasion for my wife's birthday (a birthday cord on the table, a complimentary glass of champagne, and even a complimentary glass of Riesling to accompany the salad and soup course.)
The service is impeccable and the food is divine. I am a gluten-free diner, and it is always a great experience to dine there and be pampered.
We found Mizuna because of the reviews; we went to Mizuna because of the menu. The menu described creative food. It didn't disappoint.
First, the waiter brought us bread and butter. Not just any butter. He told right from the start it was a fatty European butter. My kind of place.
I happened to be on a date that evening with the most beautiful, engaging, and entertaining woman in the world, my wife, Lisa. We started the night with the foie pie. The crust was buttery and flaky. The foie ice cream was creamy and good, especially with the compressed apples and caramel sauce. When the wait staff came to pick up the plate, they asked what we thought. I said everything was good, but I didn't care for the pie filling. The waitress said, "I'm sorry," and picked up the plate.
Next, I had the duo of veal. Lisa ordered the beef wellington. The food arrived perfectly temped. The veal strip was served with smoked ricotta and was delicious, but it didn't compare to the veal cheeks over braised dandelion greens. My wife's wellington was very, very good. I want to say perfect, but she said, "Ours is a little more flavorful." I won't quibble. It was perfect.
Lisa got peach pie and ice cream for desert. She asked the waiter to box the pie to go and bring out the ice cream. He followed her directions to the T, without any hesitation. The ice cream was presented in a fun and fanciful way.
When the bill arrived, the foie pie was not charged. I didn't like the filling, but I liked everything else about the dish. The crust was exceptional. It was the reason we got the peach pie for desert. I appreciate the restaurant standing behind its food and not charging for the pie, but I'm not sure I could have done the same if the roles were reversed. I ate everything on the plate!
If I lived in the area, I would like to get to know the staff: the mixologist, the cooks, the chef. It is important to me to know who makes me dinner every night.
Mizuna was as terrific as ever. It had been a long time since our last visit, but the overall experience was as great as we remembered. Top quality ingredients prepared in an innovative way, served by friendly attentive staff.
We dined at Mizuna for my husband’s birthday and it couldn’t have been more perfect. I noted a Birthday in our reservation, and so the cheerful hostess greeted us with a “Welcome and Happy Birthday” and there was a “Happy Birthday” card at the table. There were so many nice details. The hostess switched my white napkin for a black one since I was wearing a dark outfit and a small flute of sparkling rose was offered in celebration of the birthday. My husband has some food allergies and salty food does not agree with him and we were pleased to see the waiter reply to these considerations in a thoughtful and considerate manner. Our meals along with the bread basket (extraordinarily good) were all wonderful. We followed the waiter’s wine recommendation and we were delighted. By all accounts it was an excellent meal!
Great meal as always. The Beef Wellington was cooked perfectly and the recommended wine was unique and excellent.
Mizuna is my favorite restaurant for European food. It has different menus every season so I love going there. I am a 10 year customer and will continue to go there...
Perfection from beginning to delicious end!!
Mizuna is a very special place. From the initial greeting until the farewell they carried off an exquisite culinary experience. Not to say they are nonchalant, but their confidence in their menu allows the servers to interact with us and make suggestions that we would not have arrived at by ourselves.
The food is simply outstanding! It is not a restaurant that we go to each week, we save this experience for a very special occasion. We have eaten at many of Frank’s restaurants, Mizuna is at the pinnacle, and has been for many years! A true Denver landmark.
One of the worst dining experiences of my life. The waiters behavior was so strange. He had an attitude and a way about him almost as if he was annoyed. He convinced us to trust the chef and get the tasting menu without describing what was on the menu. We asked for clarification but he never gave specifics on dishes and said we would be in good hands so we went for it. My friend specifically said no shellfish and he said that would be accommodated. The third course was lobster pasta..... He obviously knew this from the start but said nothing. The first course was fois gras pie. Utterly disappointing, after seeing my face upon tasting the food my friend did not even want to try hers. This really set the tone for the rest of the meal. The remaining courses were uninspired, bland, poorly executed, improper temperatures, too many ingredients, I could go on and on. The waiter never asked us if we liked the food or if something was wrong even though we ate maybe one or two bites of each course. I felt the head chef was not present in the kitchen. I was so confused by the food and how bad it tasted. I will never eat here again and I will be advising everyone I know to avoid it as well. I have no idea how this place stays open and receives the positive reviews it has. Do not eat here. Go to Barolo instead, it’s stellar and half the price with a much more modern and classy atmosphere. They did comp our tasting menus in the end in an attempt to save face. I stand by my review despite that last ditch effort.
Great service and chef's tasting menu! Would absolutely return for special occasion. Thx for the nice birthday recognition.
Fantastic food and service! We tried the chef's tasting menu and the ingredients were so fresh, plating beautiful and portion sizes just right. Our server did a great job describing the dishes to us upon arrival, paired wine perfectly with our meal and was very attentive during the entire dinner service. We will definitely be back again soon!
Another wonderful time at my favorite restaurant Great food and service.
Nice place for an anniversary
One of the best resturants I've ever been to. Doesn't look great from the outside, but once you step in, and try the food, you'll understand.
Wonderful service, wine list and tasting menu. Slightly pricy but worth it. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.
Amateur service, uninformed wine Capt., poorly prepared food... when manager informed of disappointing food preparation his response was “oh, too bad, I’ll mention to chef”. Really!!!???
We had a wonderful experience for dinner! It was our anniversary, and they wrote a little card that wished us a happy anniversary and have complimentary champagne. The rest of the experience was beautiful. Everyone we interacted with was kind, friendly and attentive. The food was delicious (you must have dessert). An all-around incredible experience that we’ll remember. We loved it, and we’ll definitely be back!
One of the best tasting menus we've ever had! I told them it was our anniversary and they greeted us with champagne, a cute card, and chocolates to go!
We were here Fri. Aug. 24 for our anniv, so splurged on the Chef's tasting menu + wine pairings. The food was incredible, the service impeccable. It is pricey, but worth it. I rarely give 5 ☆ but Mizuna deserves it!
Cute building, nice vibe inside. We sat in the back room where the walls are lined with wine bottles. Unique dishes, well prepared, excellent service. Complimentary valet so you don’t have to worry about moving your car at the 2-hr mark. A little on the pricier side due to its location downtown. Recommended for special occasions.
I wish I had the words to express my experience but I don’t. Everything exceeded my expectations and I am honored to have been a guest. I cannot wait to come back again and have my taste buds explode.
Mizuna was an amazing experience. The portions were just right. The price was high, but well worth it. Staff was super friendly. As the only Hispanics in the restaurant, we did feel a bit uncomfortable with the stares we would get. Also some of the staff was looking at us like we're leaving without paying at the end of the night.
Innovative food. Great service. Expensive,but worth every penny!
One of Denver's top restaurants. The Chef's Menu is always an enjoyable opportunity to experience exquisite food. The sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and provided great information about the wines we had with the meal. And for all who have forgotten what service should be, Mizuna reminds us.
Mizuna was every bit as good as when we first visited 10 years ago. We spent our anniversary there on Friday and nothing disappointed. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the food was delicious.
