    It gets REALLY busy for brunch. Service was slow, food was good, I'd go back, but it probably wouldn't be my first choice for weekend brunch.

    Great food, waitress & manager were lovely (even when our guest from Tokyo card didn’t work, they did an excellent job of handling it-different card worked fine) however I did, when I made the reservation note that I had 2 people coming that are over 90 yrs old and use a cane. Yep we were STILL seated downstairs and ON THE PLATFORM in the corner. (Nothing like more opportunities to fall) This is my only reason for disappointment . It was pretty loud, but I suspect that’s the vibe. Everything else was fantastic.

    Not very welcoming. Server was not friendly. We did the bottomless and they brought out a huge wine glass but it was warm. Tried the fried green tomatoes and they were nasty. Just paid and left. I’m sure this is not the best Denver has to offer. Try someone else if you are visiting

    I love coming here. All the staff are so kind and very outgoing, and the food hasn’t disappointed me yet (the don’t worry Brie happy sandwich is my absolute favorite). I once had to make a reservation for 20+ people for a bachelorette brunch and everyone I spoke to when coordinating that was incredibly accommodating and responsive. Can’t say enough good things about the lobby!

    Very disappointing! The restaurant is very very loud hard to have a conversation and hear the other person. The food was served cold very disappointing. Even the coffee was cold. The server I had too many tables and it took forever to get our food order in and then to get our food and finally request our bill. Would not recommend if you want to have a conversation with the people that you go with. Besides that downtown Denver is disgusting. Homeless people everywhere. Not very safe place to be. Will not be coming back or recommending.

    This used to be a regular staple for the whole family, but this place has really gone downhill since the pandemic. Food quality and service have both taken a nose dive— bland, unseasoned food and slow service and way overpriced for the quality. Plus we got hit with a “wage gap” fee because the owner is clearly too cheap to pay their staff a living wage. If that’s ownership’s mentality then it’s no wonder why The Lobby experience has dropped off so much.

    Cool restaurant in a historic building downtown with a unique menu. The staff was very accommodating as I amended my reservation a few times to increase numbers which was awesome! Everyone enjoyed the food, which was served in generous portions. This place is a great option for a friends brunch for not ideal for a party as large as ours (14 people) as you really had to raise your voice to be heard over the energetic crowd. The courtyard was beautiful and the perfect place to take photos!

    We came for brunch and bottomless mimosas. Food was amazing! We sat on the patio early in the morning, there was only one other table sat outside with us, so it wasn’t too loud. The server took awhile to ask us if we needed refills, and would consistently forget simple requests like a water refill. Additionally, a homeless man was dancing and acting strange right by our table, so we also got a free show. Overall it was a good time.

    The food was wonderful! I tried something new. Can't remember exactly what it was called, but it was chicken biscuits and gravy. The mimosas are also our go-to when we dine here. Haven't tried the flavored ones yet, but I can't go wrong with the original flavor.

    Usually have good things to say about The Lobby, this time was below average. Bottomless mimosas were basically a scam this time because the server didn’t stop by frequently to refill and was only refilled 1 time.

    Went for brunch/lunch on a Sunday. The food was nothing special and the service was TERRIBLE! Have never been treated so poorly. Had to get our own utensils and condiments because the waitress never came back. Had to go to the hostess to get a refill. Now I understand why there was no wait for this restaurant. Would not recommend.

    The service was abysmal, I showed up with my party 10 minutes prior to my reservation and wasn’t sat until 10 minutes after the reservation began - waiting 20 minutes total while there were open tables and people continually walking by without acknowledging us felt bad. The bottomless mimosas are worth the money given how heavy the poor is and it was a saving grace after that poor service. We got the fried green tomatoes, eggs Benedict and the chicken with French toast - all 3 dishes were delicious. No complaints on the food or drinks! Service just sucked today
