Contemporary American
The Zagat Survey says, "There's much to like about this Washington Park Italian-New American: "good food", a "great patio" & "cheerful" service & ambiance."
An upscale age-diverse crowd mingles at this popular neighborhood restaurant & gathering place east of Wash Park.
A covered strip on the south and west side with heat and misters makes for convivial outdoor seating (you just might see a neighbor). A beautiful lounge is off to the side. 11 beers on tap, 15 in bottles and an excellent wine list at the elegant U-shaped bar. A roomy & elegant banquet room with its own patio and a presentation compatible 80” HDTV complete this restaurant for every occasion.
Dinners are mid-priced, with a nice selection of grilled seafood & steaks & several fancy pasta dishes. The lunch offerings include sandwiches, pizza, salads & pasta.

Usually a great meal, not so much today. Beef ravioli Alpo like. Waiter didn't know the menu, nice enough but very amateurish. Patio was lovely but overall a disappointment which I never had at Wash Park Grill before.

Food (lobster pasta and lamb rigatoni) was well presented and very flavorful. The ambience was perfect for a long overdue get-together (casual yet classy). The service was outstanding (thanks Sean!)….personable and professional.

This is a very nice neighborhood restaurant with good quality food and very friendly service. They haven't switched to the forced tip model. I had the salmon salad. It was excellent. Everyone else said they enjoyed their food too. I had a house barrel aged negroni that was very good as well. Recommend this establishment. Well run and clean.

Our server was amazing — one of the best I’ve had in Denver. I forget his name but he had red hair and was a part-time comedian. Additionally, the young girls working as hostesses were very accommodating and attentive when we explained that we needed to sit outside. On top of that, our food was perfect. All in all, the service made this a wonderful dining experience.

We love Washington Park Grille, but found this experience less than most experiences. Apparently, I needed to read more closely when making the reservation for 2 pm. We were offered a brunch menu and when we inquired about regular pasta entries and other items were told that that menu did not begin until 4 pm. It was our thought that in the past we had ordered such items at the noon hour times. Perhaps this differs on weekends versus week days when we most likely found those options in the past. Had we thought about it we would have left to return 2 hours later. That being said, the salmon omelet I ordered did not measure up. Made for a disappointing anniversary celebration. Surely my fault for not having paid closer attention when checking the menu in advance. We'll be back but be more tuned in to our times and options.

We have been coming to the Wash Park Grill for years. If fact it was named Falcones when we moved in 1980. It was great then and continues to be great.

As long time patrons of Wash Park Grille we were very disappointed.
I would not describe the noise level as "energetic". It was too loud to carry on a normal conversation. Also, entree's served before we had barely started our appetizer's. Felt rushed.

Our server was nice but gave us the wrong food, was scarce, we literally had to flag him down to ask a question. Did not check back once to see if everything was ok. My daughter snd I love meeting at Wash Park Grille, this has changed our minds and we will not be returning any time soon.
The restaurant was over half empty on a Sunday for brunch which speaks volumes of the food and service.
We also had to wait forever for our food.

Very disappointing-no air conditioning, space was extremely hot, we were told the air conditioning had been out for quite a while, hostess was not apologetic nor were we warned when we arrived the restaurant was an inferno. This restaurant has had such a good reputation-how disappointing-maybe they can’t fix the air conditioning but could they add fans? Could they show some empathy for their customers sweating while they eat? Apparently not-never go back.

We had a great lunch after a trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens. I had the bucatini scampi and my friend had the lasagna. Everything was delicious and we shared a raspberry creme brulee for dessert.

Dining at Wash Park Grille is always a delight. This time we were here for their light 3-4 pm menu, which was perfect for the occasion - having a meal before going for a ride in the Washington Park. My son had their buffalo burger grilled to perfection with fries and I had French onion (delicious!) and chicken lettuce wraps (something fresh!). We also could not help ordering their desserts - amazing tiramisu, which melted in my mouth, with a cup of cappuccino, and vanilla gelato. Sitting on their porch under light water mist in this ramping up summer heat, and enjoying street of Gaylord with its upscale stores and restaurants​ and elegantly dressed bypassers - what could be better?

This is one of my favorite places in all of Denver.
We usually take guests from out of town there. Sadly we didn’t have our usual experience tonight. Slow service from the start! Wanted the rack of lamb but was told they were out of it ... We were there at 5:00 pm! Order the steak medium, came out very, very well done. (Hard to cut and hard to eat) Menu said it came with baby broccoli, but I received Brussels sprouts instead. I would have sent it back, but the inattentive waiter never came back by our table in order to do so. Two of our party ordered the shrimp scampi, it was too spicy, we found out they no longer serve bread with meals which would have helped with the spice. I ordered an after dinner drink off their dessert and drink list, but they were out of stock on that as well so I declined.
Sad!
