This was one of the best dining experiences I've had in Denver! My boyfriend and I did the 3 course fixe price menu and the food and service were both FABULOUS. Get the tarrow bread service to start! The Colorado wagyu picanha was AMAZING! Also easily the best service at any restaurant in Denver I've experienced. Will definitely be returning.

The cuisine is the best in the LoHi neighborhood! Chef Amos is brilliant, Manager Gene is the best there is, bartender Ben can mix up a serious cocktail and waiter Ale is very attentive. We had a really great meal and experience with our out of town friends at Fifth String!

So impressed with the level of service in the greenhouse during snow. I knew the food would be amazing and precautions taken for COVID. This was our 4th visit since they opened- all during COVID. The service blew me away.

Really enjoyed our prix fixe experience in the cabana outside. We loved Old Major (prior restaurant at this location) as omnivores but as vegetarians, it was missing options for us. We loved the root vegetable soup and the gnocchi. The cocktails were great.

Thanks for our first kind-of indoor dining in almost a year!

It was pricey for what it was. Food was ok, not amazing. Maybe it’s because we had a later reservation but a lot of it wasn’t warm. We’re not the pickiest so I was surprised we don’t like it more. Maybe it was just an off night?

Food, drinks and service were great. The only issue was that their heat source was broken and they should have told us. It was Valentine’s Day eve and we still would have shown up, but dressed warmer.

Otherwise, it’s expensive, but portions are good sized, unlike a lot of other foodie places. We’ll return for another special occasion.

We had a great time! We had a reservation for outdoor dining, which means one of the cute little greenhouses. We debated canceling since it was about 5 degrees during our dinner. However, we decided to dress as warm as possible and make an adventure out of it, and I'm so glad we did! They provided blankets and the little houses are heated with propane heaters. The service was great. I don't know our waiter's name but he was great with wonderful recs. We also had like 4-5 other people stop by between water service, dropping off food and drinks, and possibly the chef stopping in? It all made for a lively and fun ambience. The *only* thing that could've made the night better was if the dessert were served warm - but I doubt they were planning their menu around 1 degree evenings! The tallow candle bread was AMAZING. Also loved the "more than a feeling" hot cocktail -- stayed warm, and delicious! We did the prefixed menu. I tried saganaki - new to me, delicious. A hot cheese dish. Only regret was not saving some of the bread to have with it. Then I had mushroom gnocchi - also great. Wish there were a couple more gnocchis! But then came dessert - we shared both desserts, the brownie and lavender. The brownie felt more fitting for the season (lavender would be delicious on a hot summer day), but both were great. Will be back for another date night!

Always a fabulous meal at Fifth String. The food and service is top notch! The variety of menu items on the menu, even in a Pandemic, is well orchestrated. We love the cocktails and wine list.

Superb!!

My partner and I were looking for last minute reservations on a Friday night to get food and drinks. We stumbled upon Fifth String on Open Table and made a reservation. We arrived 15 minutes early and the hostess/manager was extremely kind. She told us we're welcome to grab a drink at the bar and offered us multiple tables for our choosing. This was amazing because we'd always wanted to try the greenhouses! Our entire visit was wonderful from the staff to the food and to the ambience. Our server was fantastic and our food came out in a timely manner. 10000/10 experience! We will be returning, thank you Fifth String!!

Food was very below average for the price. Stale and lazy. All flash. No dash. Service was average. Drinks were good. Ambiance was weird. No music, heat blasting.

We loved fifth string! The food was incredible, as was the service. We dined in the outdoor greenhouse and it was surprisingly warm and cozy. Our server, Lawrence, was so accommodating to our dietary restrictions (dairy and gluten free). Everything came out perfectly plated and delicious. We had oysters, beets, little gem salad and short ribs. It was plenty of food for two. We will be back!

I found this gem after seeing their menu and wanted everything. When we showed up I had said I wanted outdoor seating and ended up getting our own two top greenhouse decorated with a floor rug and our own heater. Molly, our server was so sweet and very attentive. The food was amazing, we started with the fallow candle bread which was divine. The spare rib had the best flavors and the moist, gooey brownie with salted caramel ice cream was amazing. I highly recommend this experience!

Every morsel was fantastic! The prix fixe meal had a nice variety of plates and was very reasonably priced for the quality. Carpaccio and the beet appetizers were fresh and flavorful. The Pork Katsu was unreal and I don’t think I’ve had a better warm chocolate brownie. Great service, too! Slight breeze from them serving the outdoor dining spaces but not too uncomfortable for long.

Outstanding! You must try the beef fat candle with fresh bread. My picky 12yo who rarely eats anything took a chance and had the Sagayaki (sp?) Anyway, it's the flaming cheese. It was excellent. The Short Rib fell off the bone. My gnocchi was perfect. The service was so attentive and anticipated our needs very well without being intrusive. The chef came out and asked about the food. Highly recommend - we had a blast laughing and talking and enjoying this wonderful dining experience. Well done, Fifth String, well done!

Fantastic food. If I could give more stars for service, I would. We had outside dining so it was very quiet and intimate. Wonderful restaurant and well worth the price tag.
