We had a table by the windows. Wonderful view but very cold air coming through. Restaurant was empty (Monday P.M.) Salad had real blue cheese, which is non-existent in other restaurants. Ordered two t-bone steak dinners. Husband’s was tender, mine too tough to cut. Wait staff was pleasant but forgot coffee which had been ordered with dessert. Food overall was average. Go because it’s a fort, not because it’s great food.
The best place in the Denver area for a special occasion celebration. The food is awesome, and many items you can't get any place else. Plus, the service is unsurpassed...
Pretty cool spot, good ambiance...good variety of items. Appetizers were pretty small for price (and odd numbered, 5 small pieces of bacon wrapped quail, if you're sharing I'd rather have 4 bigger pieces) got the incorrect steak.. Good flavor
We came for our wedding anniversary and the location and building were amazing. My wife had the Kit Carson turkey and green chili Mac and cheese. The turkey dish was not to her or my liking I think the broth was a base we were not fond of. The Mac and cheese was amazing! I had the buffalo prime rib and it was amazing however the snap peas did not even seem cooked. I ordered a IPA and received it in a bottle not sure but I assumed it would be in draft and such a fine dining.
Visiting family in the area and had a wonderful native meal.
Great dining experience. It always is a great to have a diner.
The Fort is a real dinning experience. Wonderful location, food and service. It always gets an A+ rating from us.
Great for birthdays
Went there for a birthday two out of the three steaks we're not cooked right had to send back. In one of my guest had their salad taken away before they were done with it. 0ther than that it was good.
The service could have been better...unless asked no refill for iced tea was offered. Also, I called after making the reservation to notify them that this was a birthday occasion. The employee taking the call assured me that this would be updated on the reservation. It was not.
Also, the atmosphere was good, but very difficult to read the menu, it was too dark.
the servers were wonderful and helped make our evening. The food was great.
First time. Food good very pricey. Excellent service. Will visit again but dinner for 4 with 20% gratuity was $340. Not a place you visit except for special occasions. RW
Great special occasion restaurant as on the more expensive end. Food cooked perfectly. Wait staff was attentive but not intrusive.
My husband & I were in town looking for a house to move from Florida & several folks recommended The Fort, I was able to get a last minute reservation & was pleasantly surprised. Our server was very friendly & knowledgeable & even showed us the Mountain Man toast when we asked, the food was delicious & authentic, we really enjoyed the Ute gentleman playing his flute & met the mountain man on our way out by the fire pit who was very clever & fun, we had a great experience @ The Fort & look forward to bringing guests who visit us in our new home in Denver!
Excellent service and very pleasant wait staff. The food was outstanding... especially those marrow bones!
Great setting (especially right by the fireplace, which was much to my 80 year old mother’s liking!), excellent food, and above average service. We all had the Winter Special Ribeye, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Started with bacon wrapped quail for an appetizer, and did a yummy chocolate dessert afterwards too. For drinks - prickly pear margaritas and red wine (some Cab and some Super Tuscan). All-in-all, a great meal! Looking to come back to enjoy the deck when the weather warms a bit!
I've been meaning to check out this restaurant for quite some time, so when Restaurant Week was about to end, we thought it would be a good idea to finally try their food. Boy, were we disappointed.
Maybe my expectations were too high since I've heard so many good things over the years, but I wasn't expecting to feel ripped off by the end of the meal! We ordered the Restaurant Week menu which was a salad for an appetizer, steak and quail for the entree, and a small chocolate pudding for the dessert. I don't think I would have been so upset over the lack luster food if we hadn't paid $100 for the two of us. For a basic salad, burnt quail, and a thoughtless dessert I feel like we shouldn't have had to pay that much. Then, to make it worse, we both had upset stomachs the next day.
There's a part of me that wants to give them another try because the service was so excellent, but a great waitstaff doesn't make up for the over priced food. Considering that Denver is becoming a hot spot for innovative food, The Fort is really going to have to step it up a notch if they want to compete seeing as an amazing view isn't enough to compensate.
Unfortunately won't going there anymore, the food quality went way down... use to be our favourite restaurant to go on spacial occasions...
We have visited the The Fort twice both times we have really enjoyed the food and experience. We are adventurous and like to try new things quail was new for us and it was delicious and so was the Bison Steak.
A great restaurant for any occasion. The food and service were excellent. We arrived an hour early for our reservation and they very graciously were able to accommodate us. I will definitely dine here again when I’m back in the area. Thank you for the wonderful dining experience.
We really enjoyed the Fort, we like the friendliness of the staff and the attentiveness of the servers. It always as if the customers are enjoying their experiences at the Fort. We also like the historical connection and usually spend some time after dinner just looking at the historical memoirs in the place.
Restaurant week had an awesome deal, first time at the Fort Restaurant and it was great.
The service was awesome, friendly with an attentive staff.
Yes, I will be going back to sit outside around the fire pit and take in the view of the Denver lights
What a great experience from start to finish! We got a bottle of wine and hung out by the fire while listening to the history of the building and mountain men. Food was good and service was amazing! :)
Great view in the Colorado Red Rocks. Food and service were wonderful as was the gentleman who explained Fort information. Very much enjoyed the evening date.
Best night out! Food was fantastic. The server was exceptional. Going back for my birthday. A+#1
My husband and I had an amazing time at the fort. There is so much history to be learned, beautiful views to see, and not to mention the great food! Everyone here was very friendly and informative. It was a great way to have different food and a fun themed restaurant but still elegant. It was our first time here but we will definitely be back and bring friends with us.
My husband and I went on Denver Restaurant Week . Liked the salad and steak. Did not have the room for dessert, only tried a few bites, it is OK. Overall, we liked it and will go back.
Had a great time. Food was exeptional. Service was fantastic. Over all a great dinning experience.
Nice time except one guest had a undone steak..they took it back to be corrected and gave us coupons for next visit.
The food and service was wonderful. Checking out The Fort during Restaurant Week was perfect because we got to experience this gem at a reasonable price.
We had a nice dinner experience at The Fort.
The guacamole was the best we’ve ever had a a restaurant! The buffalo steaks were cooked well and the teriyaki quail had great flavor. We also tried the green chili mac and cheese, which was good.
Overall it was a great dining experience - our server was polite, prompt and very nice and the ambiance was comfortable and active. The building is a cool feature and we’re looking forward to visiting in the summer when the outdoor seating is available.
Love the ambiance. Service was good and the food was superb!!
The Fort was a really fun way to celebrate a birthday. The food and the ambiance was great!
Great food and service. Restaurant week great time to check out
Got the Fort potatoes. OMG, talk about to much salt!!! The beans, corn, onions, and peppers were doused in salt. Just because they are served with red skin potatoes with no salt does not balance out the dish. Way to salty and I like salt. Everything else was great. Will NEVER get the Fort potatoes again.
The service was wonderful, so attentive, plus they shared with us the very interesting historical background of The Fort. We had the buffalo sirloin and quail. Both were very good especially the buffalo.
Other than the steaks being slightly undercooked, the food was delicious & the service was wonderful... the waitress & manager were more than apologetic for the mishap with the steaks & made great amends without the request to do so.. so much so that I left a 60% tip & plan to return to try more of the menu! Service was on point even when the food didn’t go as planned. Unique atmosphere & quite enjoyable!
We had a lovely dinner at The Fort during restaurant week. We brought a friend from out of town (out of the country, actually) and it was a fun and unique experience for her! The food was very good and the chipotle honey dressing on the salad was wonderful! We definitely would bring guests here in the future!
The food and service were both amazing but the restaurant was really dark and it was hard to see our menus.
