Continental
An innovative addition to the consistently hip Larimer Square district, TAG is the brainchild of Troy Guard, Denver’s undisputed culinary vanguard. The playful, progressive menu – billed as: “Continental Social Food” – combines fresh local ingredients and well traveled preparations with a genuine flare for the unexpected. The cuisine is complemented by an eclectic wine list, a soaring two-story space and an easy intimacy– the perfect place (and plates) to share.

OMAKASE:
A JAPANESE PHRASE THAT MEANS “IT’S UP TO YOU” OR IN THIS CASE... UP TO THE CHEF.

In addition to our a la carte menu we also offer an Omakase experience available in 4, 6, or 8 course formats. If you are interested in an Omakase menu, please contact the restaurant directly to discuss pricing, dietary restrictions or special requests you may have. We request a 24-hour notice so that we may provide you with the most exciting menu possible. Requests for Omakase menus made within 24 hours cannot be guaranteed.

We had a bunch of small plates and everything was delicious! Plus there’s the fun of pop rocks and jalapeño drinks. Yum!

I frequent TAG and have always loved it. The food was great this time, as always, but even with a reservation, after waiting 20 minutes passed the reservation time, we were not given a table even though there were multiple available. I was told for every single one the chef had reserved it for others. Had to eat at the bar. Very disappointing and the first time I have ever said this.

Had counter seats and much fun watching the chefs to their things. Yes, multiple chefs, as it was their 10th anniversary and alum chefs were back for the occasion. A lot of fun and outstanding food! Some of the best I've ever had. Highly recommended.

Had a reservation for 515p with tickets to a show at the Buell Theater at 730p - which they knew about. Very few tables seated when we arrived and despite this had to wait quite a bit for each course. Had to remind waiter that we had to leave to get to our show and ended up having to slam down our desserts and literally run to the show. Also, very loud. Not sure why restaurants feel the need to pipe in loud music. We came to eat and enjoy each others company and conversation. Difficult to do this if you cannot hear.

Service is always professional and gracious. Didn't realize the Mom's Day brunch was a three course meal, too much food for the 90 year old with whom we were dining... KUDOS to the pastry chef for boxing the GORGEOUS and delicious desserts!! Great value, delicious and interesting food. Gnocchi, Hamachi appetizers were delicious and lots of enticing entrees.

TAG always delivers great food and service. Nice relaxing atmosphere, nice wine list (could use a bit more variety on the by-the-glass list) and well-prepared "social comfort food." We had the caramelized butterfish appetizer -- next time getting one for just myself! :) TAG salad was fresh and large enough to split. Duck breast over parsnip puree / mission fig agrodolce / braised kale was perfect, as was my friend's prosciutto-wrapped lamb loin w poached pears and celery root puree. Dessert menu looked delicious, but not this time. Attentive but non-obtrusive service delivered a well-paced meal that gave us plenty of time to get to the Avs game. Likely return for dinner or maybe post-event wine/dessert.

My husband and I were slightly disappointed with our meals. Based on reviews we were expecting much better quality but our starters were bland (beef sliders and nigiri) but the ravioli was better. Our mains were also better with lamb loin and steak options but overall for the price and caliber of restaurant it was only okay.

Food quality was overall disappointing. The fish on the nigiri looked like it was cut by someone with no experience with sushi. The octopus was somehow fishy, and dry. The sushi tacos were loaded with rice. The cooked fish options were better, as the miso black cod and butterfish were decent, but basically tasted the same. The seared hamachi was the best thing on the menu, but was overcooked. Restaurant doesn't deserve such a high rating - it's basically "Asian" food for those who don't know any better.

We were there for Easter Brunch. We love TAG because we are always wowed by the amazing dishes that they put out. Easter Brunch was just so so. Nothing made us want to come back for. It was really surprising for this restaurant. We usually leave feeling like we can't wait to come back. I think the pre fixed menus just aren't for us.

Brought my family here for Easter and it was awful. They ran out of the lobster appetizer, for which were we ultimately thankful as there was only about a teaspoon of lobster on 5 asparagus spears. For the fried chicken Benedict, the chicken was dry and coating burnt on one piece while the poached eggs still had runny whites and the hollandaise was cold and flavorless. The skirt steak was very tough and little to no favor while the chimichurri sauce tasted like it was from a jar rather than freshly homemade. The butternut squash cheesecake had raw butternut squash as a garnish...terrible.

The service was super slow and our waiter forgot things.

Terrible meal especially for the $54/person price tag. I would not recommended.

The eclectic mix of cuisines somehow totally makes sense at this swank downtown spot. As a huge fan of Troy Guards other restaurants I expected as much. I just don’t know why I waited so long to get here. Everything was delicious. We had the mole octopus and the sauce was savory and silky. The butterfish was literal butter. We finished off with the cauliflower and duck and I’m still dreaming about the curry flavor and perfect kale. So good, cannot wait to return for the chefs table!

The food was incredible as usual and the service was just as great (Tiffany). Really enjoy every time we have a meal at TAG, it's one of our favorite date night places. Great cocktails, wine selection and food that is always incredible (try the Flash Seared Hamachi app) and of course really well done main dishes (try the Prosciutto Wrapped Lamb Loin or the D’Artaganon Rohan Duck). As always we will be back soon.

My girlfriend and I went here for her birthday. TAG has an exposed brick vibe reminiscent of New York featuring a bull dog as a sort of mascot. The staff was clearly knowledgeable about the food and the menu had a nice variety with a slight lean towards seafood. All dishes had unpredictable and beautiful presentation, especially the prosciutto wrapped lamb.

To drink:
Flask at the Movies - A tasty rye cocktail. Served without ice unless otherwise specified, which was to my preference but might make the drink too harsh for some. The cola syrup/bitters was subtly blended into the drink and avoided overpowering the other elements.

To eat:
Sushi tacos - These were fantastic. The tuna was slightly seared and the incorporation of Japanese rice was pleasant and unexpected.

Seafood Pot Stickers - Also delicious. The sauce they were served in was zesty and made the dish.

Monkfish - This was very creamy. It was served with a Japanese inspired cream sauce as well as risotto. While this dish far surpassed anything I could cook, I think it could have benefited from slightly harsher searing and a possible acid element. That being said, it was still fantastic.

Not the best experience for us. Food was underwhelming and uninspired. Even the so called angry volcano sushi roll was a little bland and not so spicy. Service recovered ok from seating us at a drafty table and the reseating us at a wobbly one, but the tables themselves are so long I was sitting closer to the party next to me than my wife across the table. Maybe it was over hyped but we weren’t too impressed.

TAG, as always, was fantastic. From the Flash Seared Hamachi (with pop rocks) to the Canadian Duck and finally to the Deconstructed Banana Cream Pie the food was fantastic. Service was impeccable, thanks Ben, and the custom cocktail from Tiffany was just great. Thanks again for a wonderful date night. Next time we are going to make sure we get the Omakase.

This was our second time eating at TAG. We made it down to Denver quicker than expected and they were able to squeeze us in. The sushi and califlower are our favorites. We had a question about how they made a certain sauce and the manager went through the ingredients allowing us to sample a particular ingredient that they do not make in house. It really was an awesome experience with very high standards in service. If you go, you will not be disappointed.
