Great place! We went on a Sunday evening and it was quiet , the service was great, and the food was tasty! Try the shrimp and grits... they were fabulous!
It was pretty dope, and the food was out of this world. but seems like it definitely caters towards a specific crowd, mostly. It is very sterile feeling.
Great and fantastic food and service. The ambiance is fantastic. Very modern.
Food and service were great, but very noisy. Also, after the check was paid I asked for a half cup of milk to go and was brought a new check with $3 added. Very uncool!(it was removed after I objected)
Waiter forgot to bring an appetizer, and the one he did bring came just after we got our entrees.
Great food! Get the shrimp and grits!
New favorite place!!!
Cristian was an amazing server! Made great suggestions...we loved everything.
Had a fantastic time at this restaurant! Great decor and loved the book theme. I'm a vegetarian and loved all the veggie options. All the meat eaters at the table also loved their food. Service was a little slow, but knowledgeable and friendly. Will definitely be back!
Introduced a good friend to Narrative for her birthday lunch. The food was delicious and I really appreciate the complimentary valet parking in crowded CC. Will come again soon.
We loved this place! The food was excellent, the service was prompt and friendly, and the atmosphere was comfortable. We will definitely be back... and with friends in tow.
All of our salad dressings were extremely salty. The sauce on the Scottish salmon was overly buttery. This was not an exceptional experience, we probably won't go again.
Best experience from Brandon the valet to the entire restaurant experience!
EXCELLENT!! I am had amazing experience! Thank you!
Great place for lunch. Upscale location, great service, validation for parking
The service continues to get worse and worse. Waited 15 minutes for my husbands beer while a hive of staff circled around and we couldn’t get anyone to stop at our table and help us despite saying excuse me to two staff, raising our hand and having the manager look us in the eye and then walk away. It used to be one of our favorite new spots. The food isn’t as good as it has been as well. The burger was just okay when previously it has been delicious. Same for the artichoke toast.
Service was great. Happy hour was noisy. Salmon very good. The burger was close to rare not medium as I ordered.
We dined on a Saturday night. It's a beautiful restaurant! We had the crab fritters, risotto with scallops, and beef short rib and the cheesecake. Enjoyed it all. My date was not super crazy about the risotto (too many peas but liked the scallops). I thought it tasted really good. Service was great until near the end when we had to flag down our waiter for our check. Other menu items sounded good so we do want to go back.
The food was very good as was the service. The atmosphere leaves something to be desired. It is plain and loud. There are also huge TVs in the bar area; since it is all open you can see these from all the tables in the dining area. For me, this is better as a lunch restaurant than a nice dinner out.
I could’ve eaten EVERYTHING on that menu!
In this amazing area, this just continually lets me down. The food is not impressive, basic at best for what we have become accustomed. Drinks are good. Overall, it's on the bottom of my list to go back to.
First of all the food was great. Our dinner tarted off with the wait person dropping a wine glass which sent glass flying all over us and the table. We were reseated and they brought us new drinks. We were gracious, but pretty surprised that they didn’t go out of their way to comp a drink or a dessert. We were celebrating a birthday and they didn’t even come a dessert. We go to the bar quite often, but not sure we will dine there again.
Although the food was good, I just didn’t feel like they cared at all about to glass incident.
Came back again
After. A very busy night and he actually remembered us
I went with my family to celebrate my 30th birthday. LOVED the short rib, and the ceviche was good. Our server was great. My only complaints are that it was loud (but manageable), and the orientation of our booth was such that we couldn’t all engage in a conversation.
On paper, Narrative, has everything you want for a good date. Wine, local food, a cute setting. However it fell short in its execution. The wine list, and the wine, was nice. Unfortunately the food was not memorable.
Excellent food options and service! Would highly recommend.
Every year we have breakfast in Cherry Creek before that annual arts festival. This year we decided to try something new..."narrative". We were underwhelmed from the time we arrived to the end of our meal. Need I say more? We won't be returning any time soon.
Our waiter, Brent, was great! The whole experience was wonderful.
So-so. Had potential to be great. Cool decor but the service was below average and the food was interesting... and not in a good way. Too many strange flavors in one dish (scallops), and the shrimp and grits was very heavy. I’ll give it another chance as it seemed to have many of the elements of a great restaurant.
Narrative delivers as expected... excellent food / extensive wine list with many fine well-priced options / attentive service / nice atmosphere. Favorite Dining Companion and I had the Cuban ceviche / rib-eye / 48-hour short rib / crispy Brussels Sprouts and a very nice Grenache from A Tribute to Grace / Santa Barbara. Everything was great and we want to return for brunch and the rooftop bar scene. Complimentary valet parking included, so no hunting for parking in crowded Cherry Creek North.
It's been our second time, and we're likely to come back again.
Really great light and airy atmosphere for brunch. The service was pretty crummy though.
Food was great, waiter was, too. Only slip was putting soda water in our gin and tonics. Honest mistake.....
Loved the food. A little noisy
Amazing meal and service!
The chopped salad was MUCH better the last time we were there!!
Food was amazing. The waitress we had was not super nice and friendly, but the food made up for her coldness.
Excellent service and great food
Our food was absolutely delicious, as we all thoroughly enjoyed our 5 different main course dishes, and 3 different desserts. Main courses included the scallops, shrimp and grits, rib eye, rigatoni and sausage, and the short ribs. All 5 of us had the chance to taste each dish served and everyone agreed they were all outstanding.
It is very noisy in the restaurant and we did find it difficult at times to carry on conversations.
