Really enjoy the Narrative experience! Wine list was fun and got a great recommendation from our server. My meal was tasty and I thought the prices were reasonable. It's a little crowded and loud, but what successful restaurant isn't these days! I'd go back and would also recommend it to others.

Anniversary dinner was very nice. The manager greeted us with champagne and provided two appetizers at no charge. The service was also very good.

Too noisy during happy hour. It would be beneficial to hang some fabric or install something to absorb some sound in this cavernous space of hard surfaces.

The tuna appetizer, scallops and lamb tasted incredible. The service was outstanding. This is a great spot for happy hour or a special dinner.

We visit Narrative each year on the way to ski. Love the breakfast menu, especially the croissants. Food quality is excellent, matched by the service. Appreciate being able to valet park. Thanks for another great experience!

Large open dining room with big windows. Tables are widely spaced giving you a feeling of some privacy. I had the cheese burger which was very large with fries and salad. All were very tasty. A pleasant experience.

I definitely enjoyed eating here. I was skeptical of lobster corn dogs, but I feel they would bring me back to this restaurant. They staff were definitely friendly, answered all our questions, were professional and courteous. The wine selection is amazing!

Food was amazing, service was on point, lovely atmosphere. We had a reservation with a request for a corner or booth (not in the middle of the room), and had to wait twenty minutes after our reservation to get a table.

Absolutely wonderful staff. The room is lovely and not too loud given the hard surfaces and high ceilings. Food is very very very good, this is a welcome addition to Cherry Creek entertainment scene.

The noise level during Happy Hour was high but toned done significantly later and we could have a conversation. Most of the meals were quite good but my Osso Bucca was probably the worse I have ever been served. The serving size was small, probably because it was so overcooked. It was has hard and dry as a rock!

Excellent food. Good service. The bar was full of the young hip on the prowl and very noisy which detracted from the atmosphere. We will likely return but ask to be seated as far away from the bar as possible.

Service was erratic. Orders arrived for two people instead of just the one who ordered the dish. Had scallops, salmon, Mac and cheese. Wines were very good. Delivery seemed challenging. Food was good but certainly not exceptional. Staff was friendly more at first then as dinner progressed. Very loud due to bar customers.

Didn’t know what to expect after a last minute decision to go on a date night with the wife and quickly trying to find a restaurant we found this place on Yelp and booked on Open Table. The food was incredible with the sauces they served with the apps and entrees and then we ordered the cheesecake which hit the spit at the end which once again had great sauce to go with it.

My friend and I meet for breakfast somewhere in cherry creek and we now have a great place to continue to meet! The employees were so welcoming. The only downside was that I asked for extra butter and it was not real butter; please serve teak butter? Thank you!

Had dinner her and the food is amazing! Our service started out not so good as we sat for like 15 minutes before anyone acknowledged us- but once our server finally came to our table she was very good! Will definitely be back - would like to try their lunch and breakfast as well!

Narrative is a relatively new restaurant located on the first floor of the Hotel Jacquard in Cherry Creek. The atmosphere is very pleasant and, while not quiet, also not too noisy. The food may best be represented as a pleasant twist on high-end comfort food. The presentation was some of the best I've ever seen and all four of us loved both the appetizers we shared as well as our entrees and desserts. Our server did an excellent job all the way around. Definitely a place to try out!

My wife and I dined at narrative for our anniversary and couldn’t have been more delighted with the service, the wine and drink selection, and the delectable apps and entrees. Our server was fantastic and made our night out special. We toasted with perfect glasses of Prosecco and delighted in a fine, affordable glass or two of excellent Napa red. The food was ample and tasty, and truly exceeded expectations. Great location in cherry creek north, and the ambiance was perfect. Thanks for a great evening.
