    This was our 1st time going to The Velvet Cellar. We wanted to have a nice dinner out w/some good friends & I had seen a promo video online giving this restaurant glowing reviews. I made a reservation about 2 weeks in advance & everything seemed good to go. We arrived about 10 minutes early & the restaurant was rather empty. We were seated at a high top table w/bar stools that had no backs – despite several other non-high top tables being open. I can totally see that being an aceeptable option for a causal eatery but my understanding is that the Velvet Cellar is not a causal eatery. My husband & I debated on what to do knowing that we weren’t going to be comfortable sitting on hard, backless bar stools for our meal. We asked our server if we could move to one of the many open booths. She went to the host who came to our table & told us that not only were there a lot of people currently coming in, but also that the booths are reserved for parties of 2 & they're too small to accommodate a group of 4. We were not given another option so we waited for our friends to arrive – debating on leaving for another restaurant. Our friends had the same reaction we did about having to sit on a hard, backless bar stool. So we asked again about moving. This time the host came over &, in a very condescending tone, told us that it was going to be very difficult to "provide a decent level of service to our table due to how crowded it will be w/all of the plates." Despite his attitude and lack of customer service, we ended up moving to a booth. Was it a cozy fit? Yes. Did we mind? NO! We actually had a BETTER time b/c we were able to hear one another & there was NEVER an issue w/the table being too crowded or a lack of good service. Our waitress was phenomenal & we ultimately ended up having a great experience, though I can't say we'll be going back anytime soon.

    I really appreciate you taking the time to write this out, Trish. As I said when we spoke on the phone, this is in no way, shape, or form indicative of the experience we want ANY of our guests to have. I sincerely hope you will give us another chance and chalk this up to a "one time only" lapse in our standards. I look forward to seeing you back soon and also - we are getting rid of the backless stools. We cannot stand them either!

    Great location really nice renovation feels roomy but also vibrant. Waitress extremely knowledgeable about all of the menu and drinks. Owner stopped by to make sure everything was cool and was very easy to chat with. Definitely a great date night place but also would be fine and fun for small groups. food quality and prep was great!

    This spot is in a great location and has a fun, bar vibe inside. I think it would be a great place for a drink and appetizers. We went for a family Easter brunch and we were seated at a high top table with very uncomfortable chairs not suitable for children. The food took a long time to come out and the eggs were cold. I would return for a drink but not for brunch.

    We had a fantastic brunch experience! The owner came by and introduced himself and told us about the menu. He made amazing suggestions and we will definitely come back and recommend to others. The biscuit is a must try as well as Denver’s best secret cocktail!
