The food was not as great as expected. The chicken bites were strange and no one really had an over the top experience. One place on vacation we didn’t not care too much for

Hadn't been here for a couple of years. Still a fun place to eat and meet friends for a few drinks. Bar staff and servers were very good and attentive to our needs. Loved the bourbon & tequila based drinks - we tried several among the three of us. Food was good too - we mostly ate small plates & appetizers. Really liked the pickles & chicken bites with sauces.

We're longtime fans of The Preservery and decided to pop over for a last-minute anniversary dinner. Luckily the restaurant was able to accommodate us on the patio and didn't mind that we brought our five-year-old (married life, amirite?). Our server De was a delight and our food was delish! We're glad a place like this exists in the neighborhood — approachable food and prices and mellow atmosphere. Looking forward to coming back.

Super cute place, but the food is blah. Really nothing worth going out to eat for. Good bloody mary, but burger was lackluster, salad was dull, app came with no sauce, really underwhelming food. Also our waitress was great when we arrived, then completely disappeared on us.

The service from our bartender was awesome, and the cocktails were very good, but limited hours and limited menu make this a tough sell for a date night.

Loved the location. Service was great! Unfortunately the food was over-priced and was not the best. A little bland for our taste. When we asked for some salsa, got charged $1.50 for a very small container of it. Not a lot of value for the money.

I hate writing a poor review but it was a TERRIBLE service experience for us from the hostess. We had a nice waiter but unfortunately, when the first experience is so bad, it is very hard to overcome later. We had a reservation so when I arrived, I said my name. I know from dining out a lot that sometimes it is easier for me to recognize my own name than for a host/hostess to find as the spelling of my name is not exactly how it sounds and they have a lot of names they are hearing every night. I saw it on the screen and pointed to it, and she responded with “yes, I can read!” It is small but you get the feeling this person does not like their job and she is definitely not who I would want to make the first impression on my customers. It came across as VERY rude and was so unnecessary. You never know what is happening in someone’s life/job but unfortunately it is our experience at this restaurant and not how customers should be treated. Our waiter was very nice but there are too many good restaurants with outstanding service people throughout who want you at their restaurant now to deal with part of a service team that goes out of their way to be rude.

Not a great fan of this place. Recomended via open table. Drinks were not great, prices were okay but everything charged ala cart. Charing a 6% fee foe Covid keep us in business costs. I would not go back. Nice people but not our cup of tea.

The Preservery is great for people with food allergies who need knowledgeable staff. The food was pretty good, but definitely was on the less healthy side. The service was good; they were understanding about food allergy questions, but also didn’t approach me for about 10 minutes after I sat down. Overall, I will come back.

Great, attentive service from the start; GREAT food & ambiance! We booked for outside but at the time, the patio was full sun and in the Denver heat, too much for those of us nursing a little hangover. Was accommodated without a problem at a very busy brunch time. Would recommend to anyone wanting a fun, funky, yummy Denver vibe!

I really wanted to love this place because it looks sooo inviting. But the menu is small, the burgers are small (1/3 lb. and dry), the restaurant seemed understaffed and therefore overworked. I will say that the cocktails were great so if you're coming to visit the bar you'll probably like it.

The ambiance of the place was very inviting. It was relaxed but nice. My biggest issue was the price of the food. We came to get some drinks and ended up staying for dinner. When we did look at the price of the food, we were pretty shocked, just because it seemed more of a casual environment. The food did not seem to have any rhyme or reason, they had chicken sandwiches, pasta, burgers... which is another reason why I was so shocked at the prices because when you have a menu that broad you know you are not getting the highest quality of food. And, I was right. The food was not bad by any means, but it was just alright. It cost almost 14$ for a wrap that I could get at Snarfs for 7$.
