    I'm guilty of sleeping on this restaurant especially after they moved. That was a mistake. We had a great meal on Saturday night. The little gem salad was delicious and I ate a shameful amount of focaccia. Absolutely bumping this restaurant up my rankings for places my friends need to try in Denver! Great meal.

    Ratings looked great. Pictures looked amazing. I walked into the restaurant with my client. We sat down on the wicker chairs listening to the boom box in the background. Waited 45 minutes after the appetizers arrived before ordering dinner. The salmon and lamb wasn’t fresh, food was salty, and then ended the night paying a $500 tab for three very unsatisfied people. Not to mention a total disappointment ending in a sincere apology to my client.

    This was hands down one of the best dinners we've had in Denver in the 7 years we've lived here. The food and service were absolutely lovely across the board. Highlights: the tallow candle is a must, the risotto was quite spectacular, and the chef even manages to make a baby gem salad really special. Both desserts were a hit. We scraped every plate clean. Very much looking forward to bringing friends when Fifth String moves to their new East Denver location.

    We were at Fifth String to celebrate the birthday of one of our daughters and the birthday of her boyfriend. Our service was first rate, with Hannah giving us the lowdown on all of the items on the menu and providing great suggestions. The cocktails were fantastic and the food was superb! Let's see, can I think of any more superlatives? Bottom line, great food and drink, friendly and attentive service. What more can you ask for!

    I really wanted to live or even like this restaurant. The service was top notch. Our server was a gem. Great wine selection. Tallow candle was the biggest food highlight. Would actually go again for the candle and wine. Unfortunately, that's where it ends. Food was mediocre at best. The pressed chicken reminded me of a processed chicken loaf. Dry and salty to the point I couldn't eat all of it. My companion had the salmon. Said it was good but nothing special. The shame of it is that they are a pop up with a very limited menu. With such a small selection everything should be a winner and delicious.

    The Pesto Fettuccine, noodles made in house is delicious. You must try it out. Start off with the candle bread service, as it can be additive. The menu is limited but that's how we like it. Dishes showcase seasonal ingredients. The venue, staff and service was excellent. We'll definitely be back again. Like how it's intimate not overwhelmingly big. Great date night spot!

    Read rave reviews so we decided to try The Fifth String. Service was outstanding however we were disappointed with the food. I started with the steam mussels which had a fantastic tasting broth but the mussel meat was tiny - about the size of a fingernail. My wife had the gem salad which was very tasty. For entrees, the menu is very limited - two pastas, chicken, prime rib but the prime rib was not available because the oven was broken. I had the Angnoletti Serpente, a tasteless small portion of a circular pasta mess surrounded by tomato paste that they charge $29 for. My wife had the pesto pasta which was good. For dessert we ordered the Tiramisu, which they make at the table. A terrible mistake!! Tiramisu without the mascarpone?!!! Their version is soaked lady fingers covered with whipped cream. Conclusion: excellent service, average food that needs work (a new chef?), overpriced.

    We went twice this week! The food is delicious and presented beautifully. Cocktails are inventive and Attimo wine sets your meal off perfectly. Amazing attention to detail. We eat gluten free and the bread was fantastic, and table side tiramisu with GF lady fingers so good! Another friend with us had extensive allergies and they customized a beautiful meal for her as well. The music was gave us just the right “date night with friends” vibe for a really lovely evening. Kind attentive staff, visit from Chef Amos to the table - fine dining at its best. We’ll be back soon!

    We were so excited to visit Fifth String in their new space. The atmosphere was wonderful and bright. The Attimo wine was divine. The menu. The menu is thoughtful, small, caters to specific dietary requirements (I am vegetarian and there was plenty!) The focaccia and butter service is a must. The burrata salad was perfect to share; the Serpente pasta was truly incredible and the chicken was such a treat! Excited to see how they continue to evolve in this space. Still speaks to Chef Amos and his passion and creativity of procuring thoughtful food. Can’t wait to go back!
