157 Reviews
$30 and under
Gastro Pub
Focused on approachable elevated British pub cuisine, European and Colorado beers and whiskies from around the world, Argyll conveys a sense of old world rugged elegance and deep warmth. Argyll’s motto, “Eat Well - Drink Slowly - Speak Warmly” is made all the more profound with the addition of famed local chef John Broening. Chef Broening’s renowned focus on local, fresh ingredients pairs charmingly with Level 2 Cicerone Ryan Conklin’s dimensional and balanced global beer program.

    What a difference a year makes! The last time we dined here the place was full, the pace bustling, the service attentive and knowledgeable, the food inspired as compared to our recent experience. No one was there on Mother's Day night but the music was so loud that we couldn't hear the staff and vice versa. They were out of an ale but our server wasn't aware of the fact until I had ordered;however, she quickly brought a couple similar samples. The staff were not as sartorially sharp as a year ago. But we were hopeful the food remained superb. The kale sald was substantial enough to share with crisp greens but very lightly dressed. It was missing a salty element. The fish and chips, supposedly Best In Town, was disappointing. It was mostly batter with very scant fish. And what was there was dried like jerky. Would have sent it back if not for our pending theater time. The chips over shadowed the fish. They were thick cut and golden brown. My companion's steak, also "best", was cooked more rare than specified drenched in thick country gravy. The broccoli rabe was perfectly cooked. Overall disappointing. Unfortunately, I do not see a rosy future for Argyll.

    Thank goodness for the manager who noticed we had been completely forgotten by our waiter. Food was o.k....not going back.

    Wanted to love this meal, particularly the lamb burger but it was so mediocre in flavor and such a dry bun. Oh well, never again for that. Two diners liked the fish and chips. Another got gnocchi with some sort of barbque pork on it, not good, don't go there.

    The fish was great, with excellent sauces. The chips were too fat, so I asked for thin French fries. The waitress did bring them, which was very nice of her. I would have appreciated more than two food items on the plate--like cole slaw or a small salad.

    The selection of single malt scotches and of whiskies is prodigious. The food had some uneven qualities, but the positives were noteworthy. The kale salad was unique and fresh, the salmon rilletes were unique and tasty. Server was very friendly, ambiance was inviting.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants in Denver. We have never had a bad meal here, and it deserves as much praise as it gets. Standout options... Fish and Chips (hands down, the best you will ever have), the whole fried cornish hen, and the lamb burger. All are upscale, gourmet versions of classic dishes. You will not be disappointed.

    Unusually warm weather made sitting outside pleasant and I enjoyed a local vodka martini. Once we were inside, we asked to be moved because the table we were given had blinding sun, but the second table, behind the bar was very noisy - too noisy to actually talk to each other. The music was also too loud. The lamb burger was cooked to perfection, but the hard bun and all the other stuff on the burger drowned out the taste of the lamb. The chicken salad was too small for a dinner salad, but it was good. The white wine was okay, but the red wine, a Pinot Noir, was not very good - probably from a bottle that had been open too long . Did not send the wine back, should have, but also left the glass behind mostly full. 1st time to the new location, disappointed, because we liked Argyll when you were in Cherry Creek!

    Food was okay. Wine was great. Appetizer came out 25 mins after ordering. Only 20 people in entire place. Took us an hour and 30 minutes for dinner.

    Argyll was a lot of fun--they have a huge selection of spirits, including whiskeys, ryes, bourbons, rums, tequilas, gin, and more. Great cocktails and good wine list to boot. The food was a Scottish-themed take on bar food, including things like Scotch Eggs and fabulous brussels sprouts. One of our party needed to be gluten-free, and they did try to accommodate her. One thing had to be sent back when it arrived with a sauce that was thickened with flour, but the rest was nicely done, and they were lovely about sending the dish back. If you are a drinker or love Scottish fusion bar food, I'd recommend Argyll. The staff is a pleasant and fun, the atmosphere is great, and the spirits menu is ten kinds of fabulous!
