The food was amazing and the service was top notch. One of the best meals we’ve had in a very long time...and we work in the food industry! Kudos to the TAG group. We’ll be back and bring clients every time we are in Denver. Thanks for an amazing experience!
Very good food and drinks! Great service as well! It’s definitely a bit pricey for just an everyday dinner, but it’s great for a date.
Double date for two sets of parents. Great to sit outside and enjoy great conversation. A little overpriced but overall excellent experience.
The volcano roll and the sushi tacos were incredible! Four of us ordered a bunch of food to share and didn't dive into any of the entrees. We ordered two orders of the sushi tacos, which were incredible. The stone fruit salad was delicious--hello smoked mozzarella balls! Farmer's salad with the soy dressing was great. The house Malbec was delish. Overall, great service, and great food. We will be back for sure!
One complaint is there is only ever one vegetarian entree option. The night we were there it was a vegetable curry - good, but nothing creative or memorable. The grilled artichoke starter was also good but nothing to rave about. My son loved his Kobe beef sliders - the primary reason we are at Tag. He had them there once before and they really were memorably delicious for him.
Worst service i have had in 11 years of dining in Denver. Sad to see, what used to be a great restaurant, go so downhill.
Awesome to sit at the Chefs table and watch the magic happen. Run very professionally. Answered my questions about the area too. Food was amazing. Must eat at TAG!
Food is amazing and covers all palate-types. Nice outdoor covered patio! We decided comfort food of burgers & duck fries which were very good & filling.
Service was slower than would be expected for 5pm. No more than 3 other small parties in restaurant during entire visit. Ordered the following: sushi tacos, excellent. A sushi roll (only one on menu), had little to no flavor and fell apart - not good. Sea Bass dinner, fish was poached, soggy and had little taste. Small portion propped up on a ice-burg lettuce leaf inverted to make the portion look bigger. Fish was completely covered in cilantro which was ALL you could taste, awful!
When waitress was finished sampling food at the kitchen station as were other waiters right in front of guests, she finally came over and asked how things were. I asked for a new order of Sea Bass expressing my displeasure in-detail to her. 10 min. later new plate without cilantro, but fish was cold and soggy. Disgusted, we paid the bill and left. This was our second time to Tag. First time was for drinks and taco appetizer. WE WILL NOT GO BACK & WILL WARN OTHERS OF EXPERIENCE!!
We went out for an anniversary dinner as I had wanted to try this location for awhile.
The ambiance is nice and maybe bit more casual than I expected. The tables are beaten up and some need to be replaced as ours was wobbly, the bench is sinking a little. Although the table was fixed it shouldn’t be that way in a restaurant of this price point.
The wait staff is good but could have been a little more attentive when I compare to other restaurants of the same caliber. It took around 20-25 minutes to get our drinks after being seated Not sure if it was the bartender or just slow service. I wasn’t asked if I’d like another and water wasn’t filled up without me having to ask.
For food we ordered the octopus (super tender and well cooked) but it seem to be missing an element to make it pop as it was one noted. I think some sweetness or sour plus a crunch would have elevated it. We also had the sliders and were underwhelmed by it. Good but nothing great. That being said, our main course was outstanding. The ducks flavors melded well and the hanger steak was phenomenal (tender, seasoned and balanced) and the side was superb. We ended the evening with toffee cake, perfectly made and balanced and one of the best dessert I’ve had in a long time.
Awesome except the scallops were fishy and old tasting. The manager immediately came over and apologized and took off the bill and comp’ed the other meal my friend chose. Awesome service and fab food!
Outstanding service, wonderfully presented dishes, all members loved their respective plates.
A unique dinner experience.
TAG was a fantastic experience. Delicious food, great service, fun atmosphere.
I love this place and would dine here often for casual entertaining and date night!
My Daughter and I met for lunch. It's always a strong service oriented sign when the waiter is able to get the chef to prepare something off the dinner menu, sushi in this case, during lunch just by you asking. We were also able to have a pleasant conversation which, at my age, is not always the case as other restaurants can be difficult to hear the table conversation at, but TAG was great!
Had a fantastic birthday. Enjoyed it with family and friends. Service was great and knowledgeable. Food was tasty. They have us complementary rośe to celebrate as well as a cute card signed by everyone! I was blown away!
Girls night out with mother-in-law and sister-in-law
Great food and good trendy location. The Ahi taco appetizer was fabulous. Definitely a top 20 restaurant in Denver.
I am a frequent flyer at TAG, and as in the past, we had a wonderful dining experience.
Excellent evening! We did the chefs tasting (hadn’t prearranged but they very nicely accommodated our request). Each course was presented by the chef who prepared it - very nice touch. The food was beautifully prepared. Every course delicious. Nile, our server, was on top of the experience. Not one flaw to the experience. Would go back again and again. Too bad we don’t live in Denver.
Really flavorful food and nice choices that are slightly different than other restaurants. Many more options for vegetarian and fish eaters - which we liked alot.
Food was fantastic, great service as well. The sushi tacos and jalapeño white fish with pop rocks were delicious.
Service was extremely slow. We couldn't figure out why it took more than 30 minutes for them to bring our drinks since the restaurant was almost empty. Food was good, but not great. We had been to TAG before and had exceptional service, but not this time. We were very disappointed and probably won't be back since there are so many amazing choices downtown.
Great experience; great food
Every single thing from start to finish
Being greeted and seated / service during and after
Appetizers to dessert
Was ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL.
I truly was blown away and can not wait to come back!
We were looking for a place for a team dinner and found TAG on Open Table. The service was great with a very attentive and engaged waiter. Food matched the service from the appetizer to the entree. I would definitely eat there again.
TAG has been and remains my go-to restaurant since it opened 10+ years ago. I am a Troy Guard super-fan and think he and his food put Denver on the map for foodies well before the other decorated chefs here made well-earned marks for themselves.
The Taco Sushi, Miso BlackCod (butterfish) and Scallops were amazing.
Bonus....Troy was in the house that night, came by, bought us a round of drinks and was sincerely interested that we were having an enjoyable dinner. Joey - our waiter rocked it too.
Thanks guys and gals, and YES - we will be back - often.
Wonderful time celebrating my daughter’s 17th birthday. Food was amazing
The menu was both different and interesting--it's nice to see different offerings. The service and all staff were very friendly which made a very enjoyable meal.
I was amazed at how the food was served. The presentation was outstanding and the flavor was nonetheless impressive. The service was phenomenal and the ambience was certainly the cherry on top. This was one of my better restaurant experiences in the mile high city.
Joey was an amazing waiter. Food was a bit inconsistent.
Took a group of friends who were visiting for a last nice dinner in Denver. Took nearly 2 hours to get our food. Kind of ruined the night
Our experience as usual was excellent. It was extremely busy and they were able to accommodate our request for the Omakase. The wait staff and chefs really came together as a team to get an order for a huge party out. It was impressive to watch. TAG is the best!
Been to tag several times. This was a disappointing experience. Service was not good. Waiter wanted us to order all courses at the same time. Not good. Tag has had excellent service in the past. Not at all this time. Food was not really hot. Seemed rushed. Disappointed.
TAG is time after time an amazing restaurant. Great food. Great service. Creative cocktails
The food was amazing, I had 2 of the small plates, the Ahi Tacos and the Grilled Artichokes. I would recommend both. Two of the guys I was with split the Ribeye Special (28oz), It looked and smelled delicious and they said it was perfect. The side was smoked potatoes which they said were really good as well. As a treat after dinner, we had the table side absinthe service, which was fun and really good.
I love TAG so much. We come here for most special events like birthdays, holidays and fun dates. The food is always creative, fresh, scrumptious and amazing. I rotate between my favorite stand-by dishes like the Hamachi Crudo, Taco Sushi and Miso Cod and seasonal treats. Drinks are yummy and desserts are luscious. The service team is super friendly and well-informed. Tammy the Manager is the best. Thank you TAG for being awesome!!
As usual Tag delivered a wonderful experience for us as we celebrated our friends wedding anniversary. The food was unique and wonderfully put together. We love to introduce new people to this eclectic and innovative restaurant. It always manages to exceed our expectations. Thank you to Chris and the entire staff for another great experience.
