Great place, good energy, A1 customer service. Food was decent but overpriced, as well as the bottomless mimosas. It’s at least $16 per person, would be more reasonable if it were per pitcher.

The patio seating is great. Service and food were very good. You must try the donut holes. Will be back.

I have been a frequent patron at the Lobby. This was my first poor experience. The food was cold/hard when it came out and unenjoyable. We had to ask for silverware three times before it arrived after our food. The service was lacking even after expressing our concerns it was not addressed by a manager or anyone. Not sure we will be back.

The host never stopped smiling, and our server was super nice. Food came out quickly, and mimosas were never empty. Everything was tasty. It was a Monday morning, so got seated on the patio right away. Appreciated the garden vibe, and overhead covering for shade.

The bottomless mimosas were awesome on a Friday brunch. The morning Doobie burrito was great with bacon. Service was a bit slow at first but she made sure our mimosas never ran dry so that made everything OK.

Very friendly staff but noise level was extremely loud in the lower level. Avoid if not on bachelor party or football with the boys. Outside area or nothing might be best for everyone else.

This place was eh. The service was good and it’s a cool looking spot, but it was SO hot and stuffy inside and the food was super bland. I got the hangover hash brown bowl and my boyfriend did the fried chicken and biscuits and we had to load up the meals with salt, pepper, and hot sauce. The chicken was pretty dry and there just wasn’t any flavor. Nothing super special about this place except maybe the bottomless mimosa deal. I probably won’t be back.

I went to the lobby for a brunch date with an old friend. Our server was friendly and personable. The space was pretty with lots of light and character. The menu had fun names for food which added to the overall character of the restaurant. The bathroom was leaking some water and could use some maintenance. My food came out a little cold as well. Not a deal breaker, will be back again, but something for management to consider.

The interior space was hot and muggy, but the patio was lovely. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre and the service was slow and not particularly engaging. I’d go lots of other places before choosing to go back here.

Bottomless mimosas and bloodies are $16 during brunch. We saw $10 and thought it was too good to be true.....perhaps pre-pandemic. Lovely outdoor patio. We were told brunch gets tons of cancelations but sign said 2 hour wait, we didn't see/experience that.

I talked to the manager Christian a couple weeks in advance about having celiac - he said to let him know ahead of time and they would accommodate. His wife checked in with me day-of and they were both so sweet and accommodating. My food and our experience were wonderful. So happy with our lobby experience!

I’ve visited the Lobby many times and always have the issue of only seeing my server maybe 3 times at most. My food was cold by the time I could tell someone that we didn’t get utensils.

We were seated in a very drafty spot. We tried to move to a different table, with the waitresses agreement. It was drafty there too. Food was good. The noise level was off the charts loud. Not a quiet brunch as I wished for.

A bit out of the way from the core of LoDo, but worth the walk. Good breakfasty food -- not spectacular. The "Tastes Like Chicken" sandwich was victim of the current curse of "tall food is better, even if you can't eat it that way." The breakfast burrito was more egg than anything else. We eschewed the bottomless mimosas and maries that seem to be the main draw. Staff was friendly and helpful. Garden courtyard looked very nice.

In short, worth it for a visit, but it didn't convince me to give up trying other breakfast places in the downtown area.

We attended the lobby for my birthday brunch, the service was good and seating was perfect to fit our large party, but the food was trash, horrible!! The food was cold for starters, eggs, sausage, waffles the biscuits and gravy and fried chicken were disgusting. The mimosas were watered down as well as the orange juice. The biscuit was hard and the gravy was bland!! We had a party of 6 and all the options were the same!! We sent multiple items back and had had those items removed from the check! We complained and informed to our waitress to our disappointment , a manager or explanation of the food was NEVER given!!! If you want great ambiance the lobby is perfect but if you want great food, you should really, really rethink going to this restaurant!!! I can’t be more honest!!

The food was acceptable, but nothing special. The wait staff and greeters were great and friendly and helpful. The bloody mary's were pretty awful, frankly. The outdoor seating was pleasant and nicely shaded--that would be the main reason for returning.
