About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Located inside the JW Marriott Denver in a spot long known as one of Cherry Creek North’s most popular gathering places, the new Social Fare features a sunlit dining room with a 300-bottle illuminated wine wall and floor-to-ceiling retractable glass doors that open onto a year-round spacious patio with a roaring fire pit.

Social Fare uses only the highest-quality ingredients, sourcing locally whenever possible. The eclectic menu starts with Social Bites that are meant to be shared, Gorgonzola Garlic Bread, Blackened Bacon Wrapped Shrimp. Enjoy the walk down memory lane with some of the location favorites, such as Chicken Pot Pie, and Mile High Meatloaf that are even better!

Our server, who was the highlight of our visit, explained the upcoming changes to the entire area, which will hopefully solve nearly all the issues. This has always been a good fallback spot for us, but it's just not that fun when there aren't any people. Friday night, should be people — after all, the bar was full.

Food was good. Waiter was obnoxious and seemed more of a thespian than a waiter.

The food, service and variety of seating options, including al fresco with a nice fire pit year round....there was one spoiler; 2 children whose parents did not take control of their situation which adversely affected the dining experience of others. There was no special needs situation. This was just two parents who simply didn’t care. Other than that, the place has a vibrant bar scene, great food and an otherwise great vibe.

Never got to eat! You allow a 6:30am breakfast and they are not open until 7am! Nice job Open Table! Left me and my business colleague on the street look for a place to talk and dine.

Everything was fantastic. Very quiet, cordial service, and great food. We made one mistake though. We ordered the crispy brussel sprouts as the appetizer and it was AMAZING! So good in fact that our follow-on main courses (chicken pot pie & meatloaf) were just ok tasting. I am sure with a different appetizer the main courses would have tasted superb. Will definitely go back and try more food!

The restaurant itself is cute and has a great ambiance with a very nice patio, and great drinks, however it seemed like the entire staff was brand new, unsure of the menu, and hadn't worked in a restaurant before. The staff moral seemed pretty low as well, with the entire staff including the manager being flustered and overwhelmed even though there were only 4 medium sized tables occupied.

Made an open table reservation. Arrived on time. Was seated and ordered an appetizer right away. After 30 mins (we ordered entrees while waiting for our apps) we still did not get our appetizers. No one was in the restaurant (Friday at 6 pm) and we called the manager over and cancelled everything and left. Won't be going back. Something is wrong at this place.

Father Day brunch was very “blah”. Options were limited for celiac disease. We chose this restaurant based on a rating on Find Me GF, so I’ll need to update them. Our service was barely serviceable.

We decided to try Social Fare as they had reservations for Father's Day at the last minute. This should have been are first warning sign. When we arrived there were only 3 other tables occupied on a Saturday, also not good. The waitress arrived promptly and got is drinks, then came back later for our order. I think she may have been new as she was a little flustered with the order. Not an issue, everyone has to start somewhere. It then took 20 minutes for her to come back for refills on coffee. Our food took 40 minutes even though the restaurant was virtually empty, and arrived cold and eggs overcooked. The food was bland and lacked flavor. The only good thing was the pancakes. After the food arrived we didn't see any waitstaff until I flagged one down to get the bill. That took about 40 minutes. The only reason I'm giving them 4 stars for service is that one waiter seem to be working overtime flilling in for the missing waitstaff at other tables. Can not recommend, find somewhere else for breakfast.

We made our reservation with ample time to get to a play. When we arrived a few minutes early, there was a long line and no hostess. Some people said they had been waiting over 20 minutes and no one had helped them. When the hostess arrived, one of the groups said it was not 30 min past their reservation, they were told to wait longer, and they left. We asked and were told our table was begin cleaned, then the hostess disappeared for 20 or so minutes. We were finally seated half an hour after our reservation time, only about half of the tables had people, so I don't think there was an over booking or capacity issue. Also no on ever brought us water. We asked a busser and they dissapeared never to return. Our waitress seemed rushed and over worked, but was very attentive, caring, and service oriented. Clearly there were management issues, not wait staff issues. She was going far above and beyond! She never once complained, but just provided great service despite appearing way too over extended. The attendant in the kids area was also incredible and great with the kids and great at communicating with us parents. Our waitress put in a rush order, and the food was amazing. But sadly we had much less time to eat it then we would have liked and felt very rushed due to being seated so late.

Not impressed at all. I made a reservation for brunch at 12:30pm. I received a confirmation at 12:10 that our table had been sat. We arrived at 12:15pm to a sign at the front that the restaurant seating was closed. A server asked if she could help us. I told her about our reservation for 4 at 12:30. She said wait I'll be right back. hen the manager came and asked if he could help us. I told him about our reservation. He asked us to wait. Then another server came and asked us if she could help us. I told her about our reservation. Her answer was that they did not block off the times and the restaurant was closed. The kitchen was closing. Then the manager retuned and sat us. We did order. However, they were out of chorizo and 4 of the main items on the brunch menu were made with chorizo. We did eat. It was ok. Nothing special. We will never go back.

The mimosa and Bloody Mary juice area was always dirty and sticky. It really needs to be cleaned and checked on periodically. Really gross! Other than that, the service was good, atmosphere was nice and food was delicious.

I was somewhat apprehensive going into brunch on Sunday because of the negative reviews but we had a great experience. Our server could not have been nicer and more attentive and the food was very good. There were 6 of us and we all got something different and no one was disappointed. Great make your own Mimosa and Bloody Mary bar! Would absolutely recommend for brunch.

We both ordered potatoes with our breakfast, neither got it, then we asked again, one got it. Others never came. We both ordered fruit and to start only one got it. Had to request that again. English muffin for eggs Benedict were grilled on one side and not toasted, basically in cooked through. Wasn’t that busy and there was nothing exceptional about what we ordered. Just not good.

Warm and inviting atmosphere, as usual. Welcome started on arrival with our valet, Dan. He takes special care with us and we’re so glad he’s back. Our server, Jason, makes each visit fun and is both efficient and friendly. Food is always delicious. Great outdoor seating, especially this time of year. We’ll be back again and again.

My niece from out of state was staying at the Marriott. We met her at the hotel restaurant, Social Fare for lunch. The staff was friendly. The service was timely. The food was presented well and good tasting. All in all it was a lovely lunch.

This is your typical upscale hotel restaurant and bar. The service, while friendly, was slow. And we waited 20 minutes for one dessert (bread pudding).
