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.

    Soda was flat and weak and they couldn’t fix it. They cram too many people in that space so it’s feels over crowded. Tables are sticky. Food was ok, but they could source better ingredients. Tomatoes had no flavor. Won’t go back.

    Food was good and service was good. It was busy and a few things fell through the cracks. Biggest complaint was all the action in the bathroom with the cocaine use and sex. That was interesting 🧐

    This is my favorite restaurant! Food is always excellent. I had the chicken sandwich and it was cooked perfectly. Service was also great. Sal was friendly and prompt. The bloody mary was the right amount of spicy.

    My friend recommended the salmon salad and it is by far the best salad I've ever had. Would highly recommend and will for sure be going back for it again. And the service was outstanding. Great restaurant.

    They were out of multiple "Specials" i.e. Halibut. Service was extremely sold, multiple tables got up and left prior to receiving food. We waited almost an hr for food, then the steaks were all cooked wrong and food was cold. The drawn butter for the grilled artichokes was rancid and had a blue cheese quality that was very off putting. Later in the evening all our guests that ate the drawn butter at all were ill. Saddest part is this was for a special birthday, the place could care less. The ambiance and location is very nice and could be a great place that was recommended - Unfortunately our experience was a disaster on multiple levels.

    The food has really been declining lately and sorry to say that this used to be my go to place but not any more. The service was good but the food...not good. I was a bit embarrassed to have brought new colleagues here and that none of us had a dish we liked.

    I invited a business colleague from Switzerland for Saturday brunch at Wash Park Grille and appreciated the customer service, helpfulness of the staff and the option of sitting indoors or outdoors. We first enjoyed mimosas before selecting the the Wash Park Grill eggs Benedict with grilled potatoes, which is an excellent choice for a weekend brunch. South Gaylord Street is an excellent location to introduce international visitors to Denver which is located in a historical neighborhood of Denver with plenty of pedestrian friendly sidewalks to window shop the exceptional collections of independently owned stores by entrepreneurs who understand customer service.

    JUST DISAPPOINTING!!! Joined a friend for dinner on Monday. We were hoping it would be a delicious dinning experience however, it was anything but. I ordered the lamb. It was advertised as "FULL RACK" with Roasted Yukon gold mashed potatoes, asparagus, and baby cauliflower. (sounds good!!!) What arrived at the table was 2 fatty lamb loin chops with broccolini, 2 asparagus and a very small amount of potatoes. NOT WHAT I ORDERED!

    The food was good. We had the chargrilled oysters. We were pleasantly surprised by how good they were. We also tried some of the specials. I had the king salmon. It was over cooked but otherwise a very tasty presentation. I would definitely go back.

    There were flies everywhere and when we asked if they could help get rid of them or move us to a different table, they put a long sticky tape strip right above our table/food. The food was not good, nor was it worth waiting forever for and dealing with the bug situation.
