Overpriced wine and menu. Salmon entree served on a super small plate with one Tablespoon of broccolini pesto and one teaspoon of caper crema. No way to have the Caesar salad with the salmon unless you order two entrees.

This is obviously an expense account restaurant, I don’t have one so all abit much for me. No WoW factor in food, good no wow. Red wine service was good but wine was too warm to begin with. Get a cooler.

This is an AWESOME Cherry Creek spot--ambiance is really cool and the restaurant is really nicely decorated. Everyone at my table loved what they got, one of our friends said the pasta was the best he has ever had. Definitely try the spicy lobster rigatoni with vodka sauce, probably one of the top 5 best things I've ever eaten. Will definitely be going back!!

I come from Chicago and visit Denver to see my son at college. It is my new favorite restaurant. That says a lot because we have amazing restaurants in Chicago. I love everything about the place. Great service and amazing food. Everything on the menu is amazing. I could eat there every week! Highly recommend it.

The server was unattentive which led to an overall poor experience. At the beginning of the evening, he spilled water on the table and made little effort to clean it up. The napkins that were used to cover the spill stayed wet the entire evening. It was disappointing as we were celebrating 2 birthdays and had been looking forward to trying a restaurant that was highly recommended. Total experience was very underwhelming.

Service was very poor from the hostess stand through the end of the meal (other than guy re-filling waters.) Restaurant was extremely loud and it was very difficult to hear my dinner companions speak, or to hear anything the waiter said. The waiter was quite rude-it was NYE so that may have had something to do with it, but still unacceptable. Bottles of wine are marked up almost 300%, in my opinion an attempt to fleece customers already paying premium prices for food. Bread and salads were very good. I had lobster rigatoni which was supposed to be in a spicy vodka sauce. In my experience vodka sauce is creamy, this was very tomato-y and the lobster was impossible to detect-very disappointing at $39. Steaks and sides were okay, according to my companions. Another companion found a hair in his food but did not call waiter's attention to it, so that is on him. Will not be back and will not recommend to others. Bummed to have spent close to $500 here on what we were hoping would be a fun and festive NYE dinner.

We decided to give QI a try after reading many mixed reviews in the past. The service was exceptional and we loved the atmosphere. We were seated next to a window however and were very chilly. The salads were great but my Chicken Alan dish was too heavily salted and the breast was dried out. Next time I would ask them not to add any salt. My only real complaint is the overly inflated price of wines by the glass. My husband was drinking a cocktail, so I did not want a bottle. I know enough about wines to recognize when I see a price per glass the same or more that I pay for the entire bottle in a liquor store. I hate feeling gouged on wine and it makes me less inclined to order a second glass. It's funny when we travel to California and eat in very nice restaurants, their prices are much more reasonable.

We have a wonderful selection of over 350 wines available by the bottle and half-bottle which we can always re-cork and you can take with you to-go if you don't feel like drinking an entire bottle all at once and don't want to make a selection from the by the glass program.

Food is pedestrian and over priced and my prediction is that don't level up in a foodie town like Denver they won't be in business much longer. I have no issue paying for great food as we travel quite bit and are used to paying 40$ plus a plate which I don't mind. But 30$ for piece of raw salmon is a no. Won't be back.

We wanted to love this place but were just really disappointed in the food. Maybe it was our choices but there were no crackers for the oysters, which I would suggest. We also chose the veal piccata, salmon, Caesar salad and Brussels sprouts. The salmon was not flavorful, the veal piccata was shredded and the pasta did not taste fresh. The Brussels sprouts And Caesar salad were the best thing we had all night. Perhaps vegetarian is the way to go here. For $300, definitely not worth it and won’t be returning.

This was my first time at Quality Italian. I had heard it was great. Our meal started out fine. We ordered the ricotta and prosciutto. The ricotta was fantastic. The prosciutto was sliced too thick. Then we just sat with empty appetizer plates and no service until our main courses arrived. They hurriedly cleared appetizer plates, and handed us our entrees. Entrees were ok, not great. The server then asked if we had valeted and who wanted the check. No offer of dessert or coffee. We asked for the dessert menu. The restaurant was half empty so I don't understand her rush. When the bill came - it was for a different table. In my opinion, this is overpriced for what it is. If you are trying to be an upscale restaurant, act like one. Clear plates in between courses, mark the table, don't hurry guests out the door, make sure you drop the correct bill. Not a great experience. Great food might have made a difference, the only item that stood out was the ricotta.
