The Hound Ratings and Reviews
This is a neighborhood gem. The restaurant has been transformed from a neighborhood restaurant bar to a beautiful but cozy spot with a professional staff and serious food. The only criticism is that the menu is rather limited and the some appetizers should be put on the main menu- ex., shrimp and grits. I recommend The Hound without hesitation.
My husband and I were excited to try this place since it is so close. We ordered the hummus appetizer to start, but our flatbread was burnt (visibly noticeable and strong burnt taste as well) so we asked for new flatbread. The next flatbread brought out was cooked almost the exact same way... same burnt taste and all. We decided to suck it up and eat it because we never like to send things back more than once.
We also ordered drinks, and for the most part, they were great. I ordered the cool puppy and really enjoyed it. My uncle ordered a Manhattan and that was also really good.
Now for the main course... my husband ordered the mussels & fries and was extremely disappointed in the flavor. He orders mussels whenever he sees them on the menu, and this might be the worst mussels he had in a long time. I ordered the golden beet salad with salmon and was also pretty disappointed in how it turned out. My uncle ordered the shrimp and grits and said it was okay.
Overall, the restaurant was quiet (only two other parties plus bar patrons), but on a Wednesday night, I didn't expect a much larger crowd. The ambiance is best described as standard... nothing really to notice. It you go here for the bar experience, I imagine it is enjoyable as the drinks are pretty good, but the food quality was poor, and I would not recommend eating there.
Great atmosphere and food. We shared a few small plates, including a delicious shrimp & grits. Also had mouth-watering smoked pork entree with amazing homemade corn tortillas. Local gem walkable from any Cherry Creek spot. Nice to be off the busy streets of 2nd and 3rd.
Friends suggested The Hound for dinner, and we'd never been. It's north of Cherry Creek and easily accessible off 6th Ave. Valet parking is provided. It was definitely worth the trip. I had the Smokey Papardelle Pasta, and it was outstanding. The service was very good, but maybe a bit too eager. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and plan to introduce some other friends to The Hound.
good local neighborhood type of place with an especially good menu and kitchen staff. Unfortunately, and this is very surprising given that it is a Gastropub, the beer selections are limited and the wine list has several errors. To wit, taking advantage of a Sunday evening 1/2-price list, two bottles ordered were of different vintage than listed. Needless to say, the offered vintage was not as highly-rated as what the menu listed. To be sure, the value was still good, just not as good. Not a big thing but if I ordered a sirloin steak and they served me a burger, no matter how great the burger, it's not the same. To their credit they did further discount the bottle I ordered (for the 4-top). Just shouldn't happen once let alone twice. That said, great local place and certainly worth return visits.
Sat on the patio. Enjoyed the papardelle pasta and the smoked ribs. Was incorrectly brought the short ribs small plate. They comped my meal, which was not necessary. Good service until the end and had to go find our server to get our check. The separate wine list and the wine list on the back of the menu were different in offerings and prices so watch for that!
We wanted The Hound to be our new go-to spot. The new decor is gorgeous and the menu looked great. However, non of the dishes (Korean fried chicken, mussels, pappardelle, burger) were very good at all. We were all disappointed at the lack of flavor, cost of each dish and the lack of service (know knowledge of menu). Maybe it was just an off night but I don't think and of us will be back soon :-(
Three of us were there early and ordered happy hour drinks and were charged full price for one instead of the happy hour price. One member ordered the $15 short rub small plate but was served the rib plate and was charged $30. Staff was attentive in correcting the bill, but the commotion put a damper on the evening.
This is a nice little neighborhood "joint" It used to be a nice bar and now it aspires to be even more. The décor is lovely but the food could be better. Its OK but not anything to swoon over. Parking is a pain since it is in Cherry Creek but after 7 it is doable. The drinks are OK. They use Colorado liquor, which just isn't up to standard for the most part. Its not bad, but I have checked it off my list for places that I may not go back to...
Server was distracted, took four orders but only put in three. Did make good on mistake, but manager no where to be found. Slow night but still managed to bunch everyone together on patio. In today's large number of beer offerings, the Hound has realitively few to choose from and none really exciting. Food is an improvement from previous incarnation. Sunday evening may not be a good night to go.
Great place to casually relax with friends: warm atmosphere and not too noisy.
The food is eclectic, from burgers to Vietnamese sandwiches to Korean chicken to Mediterranean flatbreads to risotto. While the name and atmosphere have a kind of British club feel (with pictures of dogs everywhere), the menu is global, so I really don't understand their brand. This often leads to consumer confusion in the restaurant world, and the place was definitely not full even on a Saturday night, so am wondering if there's some cause and effect. Also (and less important), the menu suggests sharing large plates that are difficult to share (like two large bone-in Korean chicken pieces) so why not just call them entrees?
Overall, the quality of food is good, however. It's a small menu but offers variety for different diets and palettes. While salads were less flavorful (grapefruit vinaigrette had no flavor and there were few components), large shared plates (aka the entrees) were quite good.
I hope the restaurant and bar finds its footing and consolidates its identity as we enjoyed the ambiance and neighborhood location. I would suggest either making it a more global atmosphere and changing the name, or going full-on British (or food from around the former British colonies if they need to mash it up!).
First time at this restaurant and it was a pleasant surprise. The menu is varied and provides a nice selection of smaller portioned foods. The food was very creative and delicious. I had the Short Ribs (with fried Baby Artichokes and Parsnip Purée), and can't wait to go back and have it again! My husband and I shared a Grilled Caesar...also quite good. My husband ordered the Pan Fried Fish and Chips and was astounded and delighted that the fish was red snapper!! Try The Hound. You won't be disappointed.
AMAZING food, but our service was really terrible. We had to chase her down any time we wanted anything. A refill on our drinks or wanted to order more food, it was extremely difficult to get her to tend to us and it was not busy at all. She had one other table, so that was a real let down. But the food absolutely makes up for the terrible service. Great job chef!!
Delightful space, good service. If you actually want to eat food don't bother. Portions are small, which is a gift, because the quality of the food is well, just plain bad. I mean, you actually can't eat it bad. It's also expensive. If you just want a drink and look at the great "dog art" this is the place for you. Go somewhere else for sustenance.
