The Lobby - Denver Ratings and Reviews
We had a large group go to The Lobby for brunch. We got their at 9am -- it fills up by 10 or 11. The food was very good (unique menu items like Cuban Benedict) and we enjoyed the Towers of Power (mimosa towers). We sat on the patio which is shaded nicely. The interior is beautifully restored, but we'll save that for the cold months. We will be back.
Nice brunch with well prepared "comfort food". Burritos, omelets, benes all good. Burgers looked good too. Love the tots! Indoor decor okay, w/ hardwood floor and ceiling, got quite noisy. Many groups (good locale for that). Place to sit is outside. Nice covered patio. We requested it here in Open Table, didn't get it. Wasn't acknowledged at all by hostess. Was told first-come, first-served on patio. Drinks were good, mimosas and spicy bloody mary. Wait staff was cordial and helpful. No issues. Good location for a casual brunch - more suited to brunch after a late night, rather than a dress smart, Easter brunch. Laid back, good to relax. Young crowd hanging with friends, re-grouping after the prior evenings festivities. We enjoyed it.
We had a large group of 9 for brunch. The staff was very friendly, and accommodating. Food was delicious, everyone had something different and everyone enjoyed their meal. The outdoor patio is small but cute, shaded and very comfortable. We will definitely go back.
Met a friend for brunch. Did not start out great as they did not have the OpenTable reservation in their system (or the guy didn't know how to use his own computer?). There was a table available in any case.The noise level was "energetic" as it is very open and with the number of diners at the max, it was fairly loud. The food menu choices were somewhat limited to the usual fare but the preparation was quick and the results were tasty. The wait staff service was very good (at least ours). Very attentive but no push to flip the table - again, very good. Overall, I would recommend The Lobby for Brunch for a great locale in the neighborhood, decent food, great Mimosa, and good wait staff service (but they should not lose reservations!)
After seeing the reviews on OpenTable and hearing good things from some friends, I was excited about going here for my birthday dinner. We had a good sized group of 11 people and made a reservation. I am sad to say that I was not informed they had a very limited menu for Saturday due to St. Patty's Day. The main reason I chose this restaurant was because of the menu options I saw online compared to the other places I was looking at. The small amount of menu items they had available were very good. The waiter did take away from the experience by not being very attentive and asking for payment options at a weird time in the meal. All in all, great food but they need to work on letting diners know of special event menus upon reservation.
The Lobby appears to be a bit of a hidden gem. The food was very creative with a lot of interesting and great flavors. We had one dish where the chicken was a bit burnt but overall enjoyed our choices. We were there for restaurant week so I am unsure if what was ordered is on the regular menu. Their patio looks like a fantastic place to enjoy some after work beverages in the summer.
We went to The Lobby on Saturday night. It also happened to be restaurant week. We've eaten here many times and they were off their game. I don't know if it was because of restaurant week, but service was less than expected. We also ate there on NYE and experienced similar service and food delays. It seems they are not prepared to handle nights that are more crowded. Typically we love the food at the Lobby and the service has always been a little hit or miss.
The Lobby is a great restaurant for anyone looking for good food, excellent service, and a chill type of atmosphere. The management is also very accommodating and does what it can to make your requests happen. For example, I was able to make a last minute (day before) change to my reservation that more than doubled our party size. The bar tenders Tim and TJ were very friendly and knowledgeable when recommending what to drink.
I will be going here again soon!
The food was Subpar & the day we Dined there it was Valentine's Day and the menu was Scaled-back for the holiday & they failed to mention that on there Website & on open table. I would have not dined there knowing that they had a limited menu. They only had three Choices for each course. When the food was brought out it was VERY Flavorless & they do not offer any type Of condiments on any of the tables. Also the Portions of food where very small. The price of the food didnt match the price of the food. Three dinners three drinks $84 bucks. Not worth it at all. If you like high priced food, small Portions, & Flavorless food then this is your place. Not the spot.
Our party of four ordered three burgers, all of which were overcooked. My husband enjoyed his steak sandwich. The fries and calimari were excellent, and they have a great selection of beer and wine. Waiter was very friendly, but service was curiously slow considering that it wasn't busy at all when we were there. We will return when we can enjoy the lovely outdoor dining area, but will steer clear of the burgers.
We went there on NYE and they ran out of a lot of the food items, however, they told us right away (unlike other restaurants that wait for your to order it and then they say it's out). We also wanted a beer tower and because of the NYE special one person told our server that we couldn't get it but then the owner came around and allowed it! Everyone was friendly and awesome overall.
The food was fantastic, but the service was awful. At first I just chalked it up to being a holiday, but they were not that packed and we were still ignored. What should have been an hour and a half meal took well over two and half hours. We also received our food at different times, so 3/4 of the table had their food and the other person(s) were left waiting for several minutes. For desert, there was actually a ten minute gap between when mine versus when my friend's food arrived. No apologies for how slow it was and our server pretty much only checked in once every thirty minutes. This used to be a great place, but the declining quality of service has made it go down hill.
The Service was great; we waited almost 45 minutes for the fourth person in our party and our server was very patient. She was constantly on top of things - making sure our drinks were filled, we had the right utensils, and our plates were cleared in a timely manner. Our appetizer (Artichoke dip) was delicious and the amounts of our entrees were just right. Desserts were a disappointment; apples in the Apple Pie didn't taste cooked, the bottom of our Brownie was really hard, and our PB&J Empanada was well done. I would recommend this place to anyone, but the dessert was definitely a downfall.
Saturday Brunch at The Lobby was a good experience. Staff handled the business of the late morning well. The French toast has some delightful flavors mingled together. The donut holes tasted like donuts from our younger days - very tender inside and crispy on the outside. The breakfast burrito had some wonderful heat and spiciness from the vegetarian green chile. We had beer sodas which were quite nice. Our server, Katie, was very helpful and sweet.
I celebrated my birthday brunch at The Lobby at 10:00 am on a Saturday. I reserved space for 10 people using OpenTable. I arrived a little bit before 10:00 am and was pleased to know they were expecting me. Our tables were along the railing, which initially seemed cramped, but turned out to be just fine. More than 10 people showed up for my party, so we pulled another table over and used a nearby booth too. The waiter was a real trooper! Frankly, I don't know how he did it, but everyone got what they ordered and enjoyed every bite. The Car Bomb French Toast, the Breakfast Burrito, the Doughnut Holes... all delicious! Final word: Bottomless Mimosas!
We made a reservation for 6 people. When we arrived with four of us, they said they wouldn't seat us until all six of us were there. I would understand this if they were busy but they weren't. The bottomless mimosas were all juice and barely any champagne. I asked if they could put some more champagne in and they said we could buy more champagne if we wanted to. The service was only so-so and the food was not impressive.
I think the key to avoiding large (read: kind of obnoxious) brunch groups is to go before 11am. The food here is really good, and the drinks are not bad either. The single mimosa is much better than the bottomless, so it's worth ordering two singles instead of the bottomless if that's all you're planning to drink.
