AMAZING! This used to be the "Old Major" that unfortunately went down due to COVID. We had a gift card to Old Major but Gene, the manager, was very gracious to let us use the gift card at the Fifth String. The Dee-Lish-Ous (non-alcoholic drink) is AMAZING! AMAZING crispy potatoes - get them! You won't regret it! Prices seemed a little steep at first and the portions seemed small, but you leave feeling full, for sure!

We had an amazing meal here. There were 5 of us and we asked out server for help. He ended up choosing our entire meal from apps, to entrees, to wine pairings. Every bite and sip was excellent.

Get ready for an explosion of flavor to hit your taste buds! They knocked it outa the ball park. I wish I could recommend one dish in particular, but everything that hit my palate was beyond words. The wait staff worked together like a well oiled machine. They worked hard, and looked like they were enjoying their job. Put this gem on your must visit list... you won’t be disappointed!

My husband and I came here for dinner two nights ago and had a great time! Everyone who we were in contact with were very kind and welcoming. Servers Ali and Colin were both very knowledgeable and helpful with food selections for dinner. We will be back for dinner for sure! Thanks for a wonderful time-Arminda

First I want to thank Amos, Hannah & Ollie for making our evening at your wonderful restaurant fantastic! The food was beyond exceptional from the oysters (west coast yum) to the rabbit pasta, beet salad and delicious dessert. Every taste was so delicious and even the drink selections that were suggested were great. We go to a top restaurant every weekend and now that Acorn has shut down this is our new favorite go to place. It means a great deal to foodies like us when the chef and the owner comes to your table and just does not do a fly by but actually talks to you about the food and the restaurant and it shows they have a passion for their food, restaurant and customers. We will be back...soon!

It was our first time here but it won't be our last. The heirloom tomato salad and the grilled squash w eggplant were shockingly divine. Don't snooze on the veggies. But then the salmon and the bacon wrapped tenderloin were sheer perfection. And a special nod to the bartender for keeping Smith and Cross rum behind the bar... order yourself a rum old fashioned.

The owner came out to welcome us shortly after we first sat down. The ambiance was incredible, the food was to die for, and the overall experience was beyond great. Its a new restaurant opening during a pandemic, so I am really praying this one is able to stick around.

Hopefully, this well deserved review will cull additional attendance. They earned it.

We had a wonderful meal and enjoyed all the staff. The executive chef and owner came over to our table and, in addition to our server, three other staff members stopped by to check on us. Our 2 1/2 year old son mentioned something was a little spicy, and someone heard him. We did not ask for anything, but they brought over some fresh cut strawberries for him. Each dish we had was better than the one before. Looking forward to going back.

We are excited to see these folks take over this location in our neighborhood. Fifth String has a great menu and presentation. I appreciated more seafood and less pork than the previous. The vibe, service and the bartenders are top notch. This will make our short list of regular places for sure.

What an amazing restaurant! The food and wine is soooooo good!! The presentation of the food is beautiful and tastes fantastic. I’d honestly would bring my whole family here on a week night just for some good food. I was here with my girlfriend and it is also the perfect date night location. It’s in LoHi (trendy as heck) and the restaurant fits the location perfectly. The music was great and the ambience was both romantic yet laid back. The service was spectacular (we had Caleb who is amazing and help steer us in the right direction with matching food to beverage). I would recommend this place 10/10 times and is defiantly on my regular Restaurant rotations now. Also the head chef came out and check in on us to see how we where doing. This place is a new Denver treasure in my book!!!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Perfect for an upscale date night or business meal. Menu was interesting and delicious, cocktails were fantastic, and service was 10/10. Caleb was our server and we couldn't have had a better time and meal. Hannah was also fantastic, and helped make our experience phenomenal. Definitely recommend trying out this new neighborhood gem!

Great to have another great restaurant in Denver. This place has it all a great Highlands location, delicious food, great service and reasonable prices.

I had a delicious dinner. Started with a beautiful garden grown beet salad with Ice Box lettuce. Which is officially my new favorite thing in the world!

I had the sea scallops for dinner. The were served over sweet creamed corn. They were seared perfectly.

There’s several other things on the menu that I would love to try. I will be back.

Service was fantastic, food was good and appreciated the creative dishes but the price value of some of the dishes was off... for example, we ordered the fried potatoes and they were very tasty but we literally got a total of 2 fingerling potatoes cut in half with a little kimchi sprinkled in and it cost $12.00! That’s pretty insane. I would’ve expected twice the amount of food for that price or perhaps price the dish in the $8.00 range if you are going to give such a small serving.

Such amazing food! Great service! I was sad that old major was gone but this new restaurants menu is so fresh and everything we ordered was so flavorful. Literally everything we ordered was good - croquettes, scallop ceviche, and the Italian sausage pasta were soooo tasty.
