We had a fantastic meal. Everything we ordered was amazing. Highlights included the steak tartare, lobster tacos and halibut special. Our server was the bartender Mike and he was excellent. Highly recommend!

About the restaurant
Japanese Pub

A type of Japanese drinking establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks. They are casual places for after-work drinking. "Izakaya" entered the English language by 1987. It is a compound word consisting of "i" (to stay) and "sakaya" (sake shop), indicating that izakaya originated from sake shops that allowed customers to sit on the premises and drink.

Tech Center / Greenwood Village
About the restaurant
The name Hapa is derived from the Hawaiian term that describes a harmonious blend of Asian and American cultures. Like our name, our food reflects this dynamic combination. The menu is based on traditional Japanese cooking fundamentals which are then amplified, muted, or mixed with influences from many different styles of cooking until they are something completely new: they're Hapa. We have stretched the boundaries of creativity to develop dishes that defy all the rules while holding true to our roots. We hope you will find our menu innovative, uninhibited, and distinctly fun!

4.6 (646)
$30 and under
About the restaurant
Nonna’s Italian Bistro serves up home-cooked Italian dishes and local favorites throughout the week. The wine dinner is a popular favorite, but many diners also prefer the standard dinner menu, which offers everything including starters, salads, soups and entrées.

The grilled salmon salad is particularly tasty, as is the pasta fagole and the arrabbiata, which is made with sausage, spinach and peppers. For lunch, enjoy a menu of sandwiches with themes drawn from traditional Italian-Chicago street food. The Italian beef sandwich is always a hit, but you might prefer the Italian combo with beef, sausage and peppers. There is a kids’ menu available, as well as a daily happy hour with discounted wines and snacks.

Both our dinners were not good. Had a lot better food at other Italian places. Have plans eat there again.

About the restaurant
Dining at The Buffalo Rose is more than a delightful culinary experience, it is also a trip back in time to the American West just as it was in the late 19th century. A visit to Golden simply isn’t complete without a stop in at The Pulse of Golden Since 1859.
Our beautiful collection of new and recently renovated historic buildings are located in the very heart of downtown Golden, directly beneath the “Howdy Folks – Welcome to Golden” sign, so we’re really easy to find.
Come on in, grab bite, and feel the pulse of Golden, Colorado.
