First I want to applaud the amazing staff. Everyone was busy working to make sure each table had a wonderful experience, from explaining the menu, to timing the food delivery, to answering questions about the artwork. These are true professionals!
Food, different from your normal idea of small plates with unique presentations and flavors. My suggestion is to watch to flavors- go in some order for example from light to savory. We jumped around and I feel it distracted from what otherwise was a wonderful dish. Although the dishes are small we left full and very satisfied. The orecchiette pasta dish is THE BEST! A unique menu worthy of the adventurous.

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants when we lived in the neighborhood, but we hadn’t visited in 18 months or so. The food was not as good as we remembered. The octopus was rubbery. The cranberry ginger risotto was unappetizing. Very disappointed.

A little pricey for the small plates. Orecchiette was excellent, but pork tenderloin was ordinary. Waffles and chicken not so good. Snow crab good, but asparagus used was too large and sauce was meh.

The food was so so. The cranberry risotto was overtaken by the cranberries. The lobster zucchini soup was ok. Didn’t taste like lobster or zucchini, very bland. The scallops were the best thing. Octopus was not tender, rather chewy love the ambience , but on the high side in price for what you get.

The food, beverages and service are all top notch at 12th@Madison. They are all dedicated to their craft and it comes through in their work. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Even the Parker Rolls are sublime.

SO DISAPPOINTING. Booked a 4 top dinner reservation for Friday at 5:15 pm. Our bill was $380. The service is abysmal- truly. TRAIN YOUR STAFF IN FINE DINING. Every single time the server came to the table, she interrupted the conversation. And kept right on blathering about whatever was useless information. At 6:30, the manager began attempting to make us leave. From 6:30-7 someone came to the table every 5 minutes. Despite the food being good, we won’t be coming back since apparently a $400 bill buys you one hour at the table. This isn’t NYC, guys. Double and triple seating doesn’t work in a mediocre restaurant environment like Denver. If it’s a fine dining restaurant, your staff shouldn’t look and act like it’s fast food.

12@Madison did it again. Terrific food. Best cocktail of the fall is their new version of a French 75. It’s amazing. Our waitress was on the ball and terrific. I love these guys. Just wish they had a more spacious dining room... but i guess it is just right as is.

Julia was the absolute best. We let her choose our dishes for the evening and she was able to pair everything perfectly with the bottle of wine we had ordered. I highly recommend sitting in her section!

I have dined at 12@Madison several times and always been very pleased with the food, service, etc. My husband and I had dinner there the other night and the food was just ok. The pastas were undercooked and lukewarm and we were generally underwhelmed. We'll go back and hope for a better meal next time.

12@Madison is easily one of my new favorites in Denver! The service was spectacular, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and couldn't ask for anything better. We shared five plates, starting with the Baby Squash which was amazing, followed by our take on a surf and turf theme with the seared Octopus and the tastiest Diver Scallops you could imagine. Then came the Pomegranate braised Bison Empanada and a French Dip, both out of this world delicious and will have you craving more. For dessert we had the coconut panna cotta and flourless chocolate cake, with every bite you just wanted to savor a little longer. We can't wait to return! Be sure to check out the global wine bottle list, you won't go wrong ordering a bottle for the evening!

The cocktails and coffee were excellent. The food was mediocre at best. The gnocchi was extremely salty, the French Dip was poor and way over priced for the serving size. The scallops we ordered never were served, certainly hope we weren’t charged for them as I LLP didn’t scrutinized the bill. Overall, we were very disappointed in the food!

Super yummy shared plate spot! We had a lovely time for our anniversary and the service was spot on. Our waiter was well educated in the menu and gave us great suggestions. The orecchiette pasta was killer and so was the seared tuna. We also had a fabulous flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Overall, a great place that we can't wait to return too.

Great small plate menu. Food was ornate yet simple, intricate, yet not over done. Each dish was clean, meaning not over salted or seasoned, as so many restaurants, including high end do. Drinks were also great, as was the service. Would recommend to anyone and already have.

My only negative would be that it was a bit warm; they could have turned the A/C up a bit OR put some ice in our water. Otherwise was fantastic!
