A roomy & elegant banquet room with its own patio and a presentation compatible 80” HDTV complete this restaurant for every occasion.

Fabulous brunch! Took my husband and family there for Father's Day and he was delighted that they have oysters on the half shell. Our waiter, Stephan, was attentive and plesant. Would, and have, recommended this restaurant .

This my son’s graduation lunch, which noted in the reservation. They gave our table away, then seated us in no man’s land without service for over 45 min. The. When we did get a wait staff we were still struggling for bread, water, anything! Worst service of any place.

Ugh!

Ordered two salads and it took forever to get them - then had to wait for check forever - then had to wait for someone to come to table to cash out. Lunchtime should be quicker!!! Salad was very good.

My husband and I have not eaten here in years Nicole our server was excellent. The ravioli dish that was a nightly special was good. My husband ordered the NY Strip medium rare. It came with zero pink inside the server gladly took it back. The second steak was cooked more to his liking however both ends were fatty and the neither steak had any juice. In both cases it’s a poor quality cut of beef. I rarely complain but the steak was poor, the special was good as was the salad. Nicole was wonderful.

The Wash Park Grille is a neighborhood favorite and never disappoints. Overall, the atmosphere and food make up for any minor flaws (such as limited bread choices on the Sunday Brunch Buffet). We frequently recommend it to newcomers and find it a convenient and reliable place to enjoy good food with friends.

We had a party of seven and everyone who went really enjoyed the experience overall. The food was absolutely amazing and our hosts/greeters were the sweetest and nicest as ever. I know I can always expect a great time here.

I’ll always come back here as long as this place is open. In my opinion, one of the best places to eat in Denver!

I would hope the Wash Park Grille could do something about the condo lawn mowing, etc. across Mississippi during the lunch hour! Not only was it noisy but they were blowing the stuff in our direction on the patio! Pretty awful!

I took my daughter and her family from out of town to celebrate her 40th birthday because my wife’s 50 we celebrated their and it was a good experience before. We had the girl with the nose ring she was disconnected after spending $200 we won’t be back nobody said anything when left like thanks for coming.we waited a long time for our food. The food was good but the service was terrible. I think bottom line it is a poorly managed restaurant

We had a 5pm reservation on Mothers day. Waited for 15 minutes to get a table so they could clean the menu's. Once at the table waited for service. The hostess finally came by and filled our water glasses. Then we waited for the waitress. The waitress finally showed up and took our drink order. Then we waited for the drinks. Then we waited for the waitress. When she finally showed up again we had to prompt her to talk about the specials. She had zero table interaction. I have had better service at the Village Inn. The appetizers showed on time and were good. The soup course was very late. The main course was really late. My wife's halibut was the smallest portion I have ever seen served. Ugh!

Went for Mother’s Day. It was terrible. The food (buffet) was completely picked over and extremely unappetizing that we simply bypassed every “station.” The shrimp, crab legs and oyster bar was sitting on a few melted ice cubes left over from when the bar was fresh. The scrambled eggs was nearly empty and cold, and was not replenished the entire time we were there.

I personally witnessed a mother holding an infant (maybe 8 months old) facing outward, at the waffle station, and the baby (with shoes on) stuck her foot into the whipped cream. The mother told the person who was making waffles what had happened. He wiped her shoe off and DID NOT replace the whipped cream. I told our waitress what had happened, she said she’d take care of it, and nothing was done, while people were spooning the cream onto their waffles, they had no clue what had happened.

Then, to make matters worse, the staff was serving themselves the “leftovers” from the stations and sticking their hands into candy jars, desserts, etc...The buffet hadn’t quite closed down yet, as it closed at 3, and this was just prior to that, while patrons were still able to enjoy their brunch. SMH.

Needless to say, with tip we spent about $230, for 4 of us. Hardly a wonderful Mother’s Day Brunch to remember.

Our reservation was for 12:45, sat outside, a beautiful day but food wasn’t that good this time. Shrimp wasn’t fresh, seemed that the food sat for awhile and didn’t taste well! We came last year 2018 for Easter and the food was fabulous! Not this year sadly!

Wash Park had been a Mother's Day tradition. This will be the last year. A buffet with wide choice among mediocre offerings, from burned bacon to under-done shrimp. Service appeared to be a chore for the servers.

WPG brunch is always great. There is something for everyone to eat whether you are a carnivore, herbivore, or omnivore. The service is a little rough during Brunch because the place is always packed. It is not a major detriment. Overall, a great choice for a special occasion Brunch or to treat yourself.

Brunch was Great!! The service was poor we waited a long time to be greeted by our server. We waited a long time for our beverages and I asked twice for my coffee. Clearing plates and beverage refills were slow and we paid for the bottomless mimosa but only received one refill because our server never returned. We had to flag him down for our beverage refills and our check. Food was great and the restaurant was beautiful. To bad about the service.

We've lived in Wash Park West for almost 3 years now, and this was our first visit to Washington Park Grille. Surprisingly, we were able to get reservations at the last minute on a Friday night. Even so, it was busy and very lively when we arrived. I think we were able to slip into that magic time before the happy hour crowd left and the dinner crowd arrived. Everything was perfect. We had an attentive and enthusiastic server who really knew her stuff and made great recommendations when I was torn between two entrees. The noise level allowed for conversation. The ambiance was cozy and elegant, yet not stuffy at all. The food was delicious, and I was pleased to find gluten-free options. We will definitely return!

We were a party of 6 and had a great time. I had the bison short ribs - yum! The gluten-free beet pasta that came with it was amazing. The lavender lemon drop martini was a little lackluster, but the house Cabernet went beautifully with the ribs. I tacked on a key lime pie to go that held up well until the next day. Overall, a great place.

Been coming here for 3 years. Service was good. Food tasted dry on dishes we normally get. Mentioned birthday for wife and not even a candle at dessert. So experience was serviceable but we were just not feeling it was up to normal par for a special event.

The Easter Brunch is amazing. Tons of delicious options to fill every desire. It's very easily a four or five plate meal. Service was also fantastic, which doesn't always happen with a buffet. Drinks were always full and plates promptly removed. My singular complaint is on the diaper changing facilities. This is 2019 and women AND men BOTH should have the ability to clean up their children in the restrooms, NOT just the women. Not only was I the only one that could even change our child's diaper, I had to straddle a toilet to do so. The changing table is shoulder height and directly above the toilet. I'm tall and was in heels and still had trouble reaching my daughter. The stall was fairly large so the table can easily be moved to the other wall, and lowered. And you can get with the times and actually add a changing table in the men's room as well.
