Satchel's is not really as good as it should be. Folks, this is a little "neighborhood" joint, and I think it might be best just to have a drink at the bar. The food is good and solid and I believe good ingredients are used... BUT, it is not at all good value. Most every entre is around $30 (including the chicken). I took my wife and 2 kids there and our total bill was about $200 (this was for 1 entree each and 1 glass of wine each-- no apps or desserts). Pretty pricey for a place like this. We also found it, on a WEEK NIGHT even, to be extremely noisy, like off-the-charts-noisy. Too bad, because I like the fact that they spin vinyl records (could not hear it a bit over the din, and had to yell to talk). Now, the wine list. I first discovered Satchel's because of the wine (I am in the wine business) and they use good stems (Riedel) and have decent wines on their list, including BTG. However (again!)... CHANGE IT UP, FOLKS!! You've had the same wines by the glass for it seems years-- there is a tone of good stuff out there. If they had a Somm or a wine-savvy person, this would fix itself and you'd have wine specials. Also-- $18/glass for a Pinot Noir?? (admittedly, it is a very good Pinot, but still...). We found the service just "ok"-- correct, but not personal really, maybe a tad of an attitude.

Overall, disappointed and there are better places nearby that have better ambiance, service and much much better value.

The service and ambiance were great. It was at times really noisy. The food was good but the dessert and cappuccinos were disappointing. I will go back again for a do-over of both because it is a fun place.

One of the best meals we have enjoyed in Denver. Very knowledgeable, friendly server. Initially I thought that the cost of wine by the glass was too steep ... until I tasted the Pinot Noir. Worth every penny for the first ... and second... glass!

We shall return ... soon.

First time dining at Satchel’s and we were very pleased with everything about our dinner. The server pleasant and efficient. Well made drinks from the bar to enjoy and the food was delicious. The ambiance of the restaurant transports one to Europe, smaller, quaint places to dine. Plus the music is provided by albums and what an assortment.

This was a sweet spot! The food was excellent. We came for restaurant week and if they were trying to show off they certainly did. I had a seafood pasta that had shrimp that were perfectly cooked, not the chewy over cooked style. All three course was delicious. I am glad we checked it out.

After we were seated and the waiter finally took our order (a while) it took another 20 minutes approx. for us to get our salads. The food took a long time to come out. We both had the "Butcher Block Steaks". My date said the best thing about her meal was the scalloped potatoes. I thought the entire meal was mediocre at best. The service was lacking the entire night. Very disappointing especially based on all of the reviews on OpenTable. We eat out a lot and won't be coming back here.

A superb local bistro, where all the details have been thought of, but unless you’re paying close attention, you wouldn’t notice, and don’t need to, as it’s an easy, casual establishment, with subtle sophistication.

I love Satchel’s. Great food, wonderful service, warm atmosphere. Met a friend at the bar for a glass of wine, then had dinner with another friend. The ricotta gnudi was delicious. Small but well curated menu and wine list. I’m lucky to have Satchel’s as one of my neighborhood spots.
