We had a wonderful experience! My one caveat was that my burger was rare when I ordered medium. My husband ate it for me. The rest of our 6 meals were outstanding. Our server (Liz? Lynn?) Was wonderful. She checked with the kitchen and dealt with our gluten free/celiac needs.

Satchel’s never disappoints. It is such a cozy neighborhood restaurant, but has the freshest, farm-to-table, beautiful food, and lovely cocktails. We went on Sunday, and shared a variety of the family-style plates — all were amazing. We are always excited to go back for another meal!

We chose Satchels for a graduation celebration dinner, and it was perfect — from the appetizers to the main meal to the desserts. I especially appreciated the small size but intense flavor of the dessert — so I didn't leave with that overstuffed feeling. Our only recommendation for change came from the vegetarian in the group, who would like for restaurants in general to offer at least two vegetarian choices so that the choice of dinners is not already made for him.

Oh my gosh! What a wonderful surprise. I was in town for work and looked on OpenTable and found this gem. Small with a funky young French feel. A turntable with lots of old records everywhere. My mocktail (mint lemonade) was amazing!! I'll be back.

We had a delightful meal at Satchel’s on a Thursday night. The scallops I had were seared and cooked perfectly, a feat many chefs have not mastered. The service was excellent.

The reason I gave Satchel’s on 6th only 4 stars overall is because, on the night we were there, the menu was very limited. Moreover, out of the limited selections, several were vegetarian selections, and while I love some vegetarian dishes, the description of the ones on Satchel’s menu the night we were there were, to my taste, unexciting.

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.

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.
