Great place before going to the theater. The menu has good choices without being overwhelming. Thestaff is always great
The salmon was delicious and perfectly cooked as was rhe butternut squash.
The Rialto is the perfect place to dine before going to the theater. The food is great, the location is convenient, the ambience is wonderful and our waiter was fantastic! Highly recommend this restaurant!!
Our waiter was excellent and the food was delicious! So was the beer😁
Very nice pre-show dinner! We will be back! Quinn was great!
It is our holiday tradition to have brunch at the Rialto a cafe prior to seeing the Nutcracker. Food is always good and it is a quick walk from the theater.
Still my go to favorite for pre theater dinner. A bit loud for intimate discussions ( but still a great place for a date). Two blocks from DCPA manageable even in arctic blast weather. Sandwiches and full entrees are good.
We always request Ben as our server - he does a fantastic job!
We went on Thanksgiving. Food was very good but as expensive as you might expect given that it was a holiday. Buffet style dessert table was a disappointment. Pastries were rather blah
Not impressed with the food. The steak was decent. The green beans were undercooked. I had a lemon drop martini and cosmo. Both tasted artificial.
It was great except for the table we got was in the line of the door and it was very cold every time the door opened. Otherwise, great!!
Best restaurant Thanksgiving dinner in town!
And great for any time.
Thanksgiving Brunch was delicious. Darren was excellent, he was fun and he made sure we had everything we needed and made the experience fun and enjoyable. Definitely going back!!
Thanks to all the staff!
Meatloaf to die for! A great place to eat before a Denver Center show.
My husband and I have always enjoyed this place but Saturday was great! I had the short rib special and my husband had the meatloaf and both dishes were outstanding! Our Server was perfect!
It was my husbands Birthday. So I made reservations for his favorite place. Our server was superb, Our table was broken. My daughter was super excited to sit in the balcony. So we didn't want to switch tables. It made dinner quite interesting trying not to spill our drinks.
Our theater evening was made even better with an excellent meal at Rialto. The food was wonderful, and with happy hour prices, a very good value. But the best was our service - it was early in the evening but our server was exceptionally observant; she was attended to us whenever we looked like we had a question or were about to make a decision. I've never been to Rialto before but I definitely will go again and recommend it to others.
Don’t do it. The food was awful, the service was awful. Just don’t do it!
We really enjoyed our experience at Rialto. We were a little pressed for time, and our waitress expedited everything so we could make our show. Everything was wonderful, from the cocktails to the entrees. The crispy broccoli appetizer was especially amazing!
I chose Rialto because it is a convenient downtown meeting place. But I enjoy it more because the noise level is not overpowering and a conversation is possible and enjoyable, not having to compete with crowd noise. Add to that the quality of the food and the attentive service and it is a perfect meeting place.
Our server was Ben M. and he was awesome! He was so pleasant and attentive and a very good server. They were busy that night and we still received excellent service from him. Great food at a reasonable price and we love coming there before the theatre!
Great table by the front window; prompt and attentive service; fresh green salad; chicken milanese was delicious and a split order was perfect size portion; and the flourless caramel brownie was to die for! Wonderful dinner and as a bonus, free parking and a discount with theater tickets! We’re going back!
Theater package-excellent deal. Will definitely be back!
Max makes it all worthwhile. Great food, excellent service, terrific value!
This was our first time at Rialto and we loved it! We shared the muscles appetizer and they were so good that I could order them as an entree next time. The portion was quite generous. The broth was so delicious that it could be served as a soup. Our entrees were also delicious. Eggplant (awesome!) and shrimp scampi (over linguini). We will definitely go back!
Love the bottomoless mimosas and our server was so attentive and sweet, will definitely be back!
The chicken was a bit dry, but everything else was wonderful.
This was my first time here and I was very satisfied. It was a big night for me and my girlfriend and the establishment did not disappoint. Inwas skeptical at first since I do not eat this type of cuisine but I savored every bite and the staff was the definition of excellence.
Our server, Ben, was fabulous ... he went above and beyond to accommodate us. Ambiance is casual but the food was delicious and portions were perfect. Meals arrived quickly. Remember they do a discount if you have theatre tickets.
I've always loved coming here before a show, any show, downtown. And from now on, I'm always going to ask for Ben to be my server. I've had the pleasure of talking with him a few times, and he always makes my evening wonderful. Thanks, Ben!
Wonderful place to eat before the play! Complimentary parking, 10% off, and good food!
Went to Rialto Cafe for a business lunch and it was very quiet for being on the 16th street mall. It was a great atmosphere to have a conversation and not be distracted by surrounding noise. I would highly recommend this restaurant for gluten free diners. I am gluten free and they had some really great options, especially sandwiches on a gluten free bun!
Dinner date before a show at the Paramount. The wine list was great, had a very good bottle of Malbec. I had the cioppino special and my husband had the steak frites, with creme brulee for dessert. All were fantastic! Our server was nice, knowledgeable, attentive, and overall OUTSTANDING!
Great mimosa bar, ambiance, and service but food was awful.
We have come to expect good food on every visit and this was no exception. What makes the whole experience so excellent is the service in general, but particularly, the service provided by Ben. He is attentive, knowledgeable and friendly in a completely professional manner.
Update: Management reached out after experience noted below, was very accommodating and 100% resolved issues. Based on initial food experience and follow-up after, I respect and do recommend Rialto. Mistakes happen, how they are handled reflects the establishments desire for a good experience and I will dine there again and suggest to others, especially if you are attending theater at DCPA.
Food was good, service was ok but server misunderstood wine order and we ended up with bottle that was triple the cost which we only found out when bill arrived. We paid as they showed us the bottle before opening. I had only ordered by type and had not caught the name, my error but should you have to double check? Server was slow, but very polite. Not sure we would return and if we did recommend to a friend would advise to be careful when ordering and when items arrive.
John, I apologize for the poor service you received and being over charged for the wine. I have reached out to you privately and hope to make this right for you. I appreciate your feedback. Thank you, Amy
Great, friendly server and really good food: we had the Brussel sprouts appetizer, I had the Asian Ahi Salad and hubby had the truffle steak sandwich with truffle fries. Beautiful presentation of the food and delectable!! We both really enjoyed everything we had. It was a great experience!
Our see o was excellent. He recommended a nice reasonably priced bottle of wine and we shared a few appetizers; the buratta and the calamari. Both were excellent!
Thank you for the review and sharing your experience.
Brunch was really good. I liked the different juice section for the Bottomless mimosas.
the place is looking a little tired and dated, for a Saturday it was not busy. we will not be going back anytime soon.
