Enjoyed a great meal on the patio. Started out with oysters that didn’t disappoint. The entrees were also delicious! Rack of lamb, baked chicken and shrimp with squid ink pasta. Topped it all off with vanilla ice cream and a strawberry cheesecake dessert. Yum! The service was excellent.
The service and the food was amazing however I am going to miss some of the casual foods and lower prices as it’s now turned to fine dining . With the much higher prices we will not be able to go there as much as we did in the past
Totally wonderful meal and service!
The Kitchen never disappoints, great staff and great food.
One of the best restaurants in Lodo (Denver). An all time favorite. Lots of light. Wonderful food and service.
Thanks for the great review, Tom! We truly appreciate your continued patronage and very kind words. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Ambience and food was amazing!! Cooked to perfection my Ribeye and the dessert was out of this world. Server was relatively new but did an amazing job taking care of us!!
Thanks for your very thoughtful review! We're so glad you enjoyed your meal and dining experience. Hope to see you again soon!

Meh... pretty average steak, nice staff but slow service.
Sons birthday and they did wonderful!
Thank you for celebrating your special occasion with us! Glad your son enjoyed his birthday! :)
Lovely experience with ambient lighting. Very relaxing. Great food, but veryyy expensive.
Thanks for the review! Come visit us during Happy Hour - 7 days a week, 3-6 pm - for some great deals! Hope to see you again soon!
Popped i. During Restaurant Week. Had a wonderful meal for only 45! Get the butterscotch for dessert-heaven!
Thanks for joining us for Restaurant Week 2020! We had a great time this year and are glad you enjoyed your dining experience. Hope to see you again soon!
Excellent food and outstanding service. Only drawback is that the space is noisy.
The Kitchen is normally my go-to place to bring customers and out of town friends , but I was really disappointed this time. Food was OK - hummus was EXCELLENT as was a dessert but overall, really poor all around. New waiter who didn't order tonic with my gin, service was slow and the restaurant was practically empty. Maybe it was because it was Restaurant week, but I'll think twice before returning.
Loved everything we had! The dishes are simple but present, showing that the chef understands how to to cook each item exactly so. Parsnips, bok choy, scallops ( and those grits!) Were incredible. ACTUALLY perfectly cooked. The swordfish was exceptional, but just a hair overdone. House made ketchup with French fries, and a perfectly balanced compote... Fantastic. 4 scallops, however was not enough, despite the presentation. I'd have much prefer they up to 6 scallops for $35
Such a kind and thoughtful review! Thank you so much for taking a moment to provide compliments and feedback. We truly appreciate your patronage and hope to see you again soon. And yes... those grits! It's the miso butter, it should basically be on everything. :)
Great food and service!
Thanks for the awesome review! Glad to see you enjoyed your dining experience!
We visited on a very slow Sunday night. Service was good and the atmosphere was fantastic. The food was absolutely delicious. I can't wait to visit again.
Thank you, Ethan! Such a pleasure to read your very kind and thoughtful review. We're thrilled you enjoyed your dining experience and look forward to seeing you again soon!
The service staff was very nice and the food was good.

Amazing experience for my wife’s birthday. Thank you!
Wow, thanks for the very kind review! Glad to see you enjoyed everything and we were able to make your wife's birthday a special one!
Ate at the bar. Awesome bartender and great service. Always checking in, but not annoyingly or over the top. Definitely will go back and recommend for hanging out with friends.

Really enjoyable in a great location.
Thanks for the review! We really appreciate your feedback, it's also so helpful to new diners!
Loved the look and mission of the restaurant. Would recommend sharing the mission more. I found out online. :)
Wow, 5 stars! We're so happy you enjoyed your dining experience. The Kitchen has a great story, mission, and philosophy guiding our service and connection to our community. It's always nice to share that with our guests. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Service from the hostess and bartender were good, the waiters service was poor. Switched servers without introducing the new guy,' Hey this guy is taking over, etc", appetizer came after lunch, eggs ordered over medium and came out over easy, also we found the bottom of our bottomless mimosas several times. Just poor service overall. With that being said the food was excellent, but if brunch for 4 is gonna be around $200 w/o tip, then bring your "A" game on all fronts.
Nathan was absolutely amazing! I really enjoyed his personality a lot. Food was fantastic too.
Thanks for the 5 stars and for sharing your experience! We hope to see you again soon!
Excellent food and service!
Thank you for this great review! Very happy to see you enjoyed dining at The Kitchen Denver!
As always, the food and service were outstanding. Try the pork skewers appetizer, cooked to perfection and the two sauces were yummy. My daughter wanted to try the grilled bok choy. I was skeptical about it but was oh so delightfully surprised! It was a little spicy - so good. Then on to the perfectly cooked scallops with, of all things grits. Only The Kitchen could make grits this delicious. Over the top service- attentive without distracting.
Thank you very much for the great review of our restaurant! We're so glad you and your daughter enjoyed your meal and got to try some new things. Next time you join us, I highly suggest adding the garlic fries... they're one of our Kitchen classics!
beet salad is the best...so good. I loved the mussels last time I had them (small) vs. this time (large) I guess it's the time of season. I'll be back.
Thanks, Andrew! The beets are one so yummy. We're looking forward to your next visit!
It's a fabulous restaurant with great food that is always fresh and attentive staff.
Thank you, James! We so appreciate your kind words and patronage, hope to see you soon!
Everything was great
Woo Hoo, 5 Stars! So glad you enjoyed dining with us and we look forward to your return!
Our lovely waitress gave us a free birthday cake which was amazing. Great food and even better service!
Service was spot on and the food was fantastic. Prices are fair and portions are generous.
Thank you for the wonderful review, Larry! Glad to see you had a great time!
Jason was amazing. Very attentive!
Food, as always...excellent!
Thanks, Lisa! So happy you had a great time, we hope to see you soon!
Great visit to the Kitchen downtown. Place was hopping for 730 on Thursday. Maureen was our server and was attentive without being pushy. Dan the MOD was great, chatted with us about our wine and checked back a few times throughout. Flow of the food was a little slow but the place was packed. The food however was excellent. We all had a different entree so there was much to sample, I had the Roasted Chicken and it was great. Got to sample the Pork Chop and Salmon as well, neither one disappointed. I had been to the Boulder location so had a sense of what to expect from a food perspective but brought some clients from out of town along to the DT location. Place has great energy but a bit loud if you want to have a business dinner. Overall it was a great experience. I live local and hope to make it back again soon.
Thank you for the very thoughtful review, Jeffrey! We so appreciate your patronage and are very glad to see you enjoyed your visit at the Denver location. Also, thank you for providing menu details to future diners, so helpful. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The food is always excellent; and our server Tyler made sure to modify our dishes to fit our dietary restrictions. Thank you! I only wish it didn’t get so loud during busy times, the acoustics aren’t the best if you’re trying to have a serious conversation with someone.
Thanks for the review, Alex! We're very glad you enjoyed your visit at The Kitchen Denver and hope to see you again soon!
Always consistent with amazing service and yummy food and drinks. One of our favorite places for date night or with friends
Thank you for the lovely review, Shannon! We look forward to seeing you soon!
I think that this is an awesome place. They concentrate on fewer entrees and prepare those really well. I once had a pork chop which was probably the best I ever ate. Service has always been excellent and I like the open feel of the place. That can make it a little noisy at times but the corners are quieter. It can get a little pricey because the sides are extra. That is why I gave it one star less than perfect for value. Everything else is top-notch. I'll be back.
Thank you for providing such a thoughtful review and 5 stars! We so appreciate you taking a moment to share your experience with us and future diners and we look forward to having you dine with us again soon!
Probably the worst meal and dining experience I’ve had at the Kitchen. Have been many times. Will look for other options in the future. Had the most fatty pork chop ever. Potato side dish was uninspiring and the kids side carrots were awful as were the “smashed/mashed” fingerling potatoes.
At The Kitchen, we pride ourselves on serving real food, from American farmers, and we take pride in all of our product and preparations. If we didn't meet your expectations last time (which we clearly didn't) we'd sure love a chance to try again! Please contact me directly so we can figure out how to make your next visit what you/we expect. Justin Abad General Manager. (303) 623-3127
