Whenever I'm in Denver, I try to go to the Kitchen. The offerings are eclectic and always fresh. This visit, I had a Mediterranean fish that was excellent. The waitress was friendly and professional as well as knowledgeable. This is a consistently excellent spot for dinner or lunch. The wine list is very good. Maureen was our wait person.

Sat at the bar, wine, three courses of food and out in 45 minutes. Server had no clue, entree was cold. Not quite sure how that happens when they are removing one course with left hand and serving next with right. Highly recommended to me, but I wouldn’t do the same. Server realized he messed up and corrected the situation by further ignoring us. Will not go back or recommend.

Nice modern vibe on the Denver pedestrian street. Good happy hour specials. Seating was a bit cramped; I was seated next to a larger work group and it was a tight fit. There were other seats farther away where they could have sat us. Also, the server didn't know about whether peppers or chilis where in a dish. They were definitely present and I left them behind; often this ruins the entire dish for me. Happy hour wine was a good value

The Kitchen is one of our favorite spots for dinner! The food and service are amazing. The only damper on the evening was a large party that arrived halfway through with a toddler who was not as excited to be there and screamed nonstop until they took him outside.

So disappointed. This has been my go-to restaurant for business meals but the last few times have consistently been disappointing. $44 (included a modest tip) for 2 guests who only had regular coffee, a cup of tomato soup, a small and burned squash bruschetta and a beet salad. My business guest was kind and did not take my offer of any of the bruschetta since it was so small. Then I discovered that most of the bread was burned. I mentioned it to the waiter and he apologized that it was a little over done. I'll find a new restaurant for business clients.

Nice options with creative fresh food selections on the menu.
The halibut was tender, moist, and delicious.
Seating is a little crowded if placed at a table in the center of the room.
Request something by the window or on the patio.

On the recommendation of a friend, I brought my brother here for his birthday dinner. The decor is beautiful, what I'd call industrial chic. We sat on the patio to enjoy one of the last summer evenings and received impeccable service from Jordan (might have the name wrong as it's been a few days but I know for sure it starts with a J). The food was fresh and delicious and the cocktails were amazing. Pace yourself because you'll want to order the sticky toffee pudding for dessert, it's mouth watering delicious! We will definitely be back.

Our server was absolutely superb. She was super- professional and attentive, even though our table was outside, as far from the door as we could be. The food was eclectic, interesting, and very fresh. Most interesting was the S'mores Semifreddo dessert: the marshmallow was burnt super sweet semi-ice cream, and the chocolate was more of a semi-sweet mousse, with sprinkled grahams. Mixed together they were the perfect S'mores (read super-yummy), but it was not a true semi-freddo. We ate every bite, however.
Overall this was a wonderful restaurant! We will be back.

Early reservation before heading over to the game. The Kitchen was on it! Food was innovative and full of bold flavor. Elizabeth talked us through the wine, and we settled on a bottle that I would not of otherwise chosen. It was superb! They handle the 'pace' of the meal really well: plenty of time to savor the food, a brief respite to catch your breath and discuss, and then on to the next course right as we were ready. We've been many times to The Kitchen in Boulder and also up in Ft. Collin's. LoDo version wins the prize...!

Uniformly positive experience at the Kitchen. Wait staff were clearly very busy but they never showed that to us... always helpful, friendly and never rushed when they came to our table. Distinctive and pleasing cocktails. Beet appetizer with mint and cilantro was a tasty first course and beautifully presented. Lamb kebabs were perfectly done. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food and experience. Recommended.

Besides the delicious Colorado lamb chop special and the fabulous beer salad , she was the reason we had the spectacular dinner we had!! Linda knew about everything on the menu, was gracious with the time between courses AND was so considerate of our friends celebration!

The good, atmosphere and staff were magnificent!!! It was our first time in the Denver area and we will recommend it to everyone planning on visiting downtown Denver!!!
