I wasnt as wowed as some. We had good dishes and others that were disappointing. Our favorite combo was the orecchiete with parker house rolls!

Quality of food and presentation seems to have declined in recent months. Waiter seemed inexperienced. Made rookie server mistakes.

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.

Great food in a small, neighborhood location. Good wine options and able to get 1/2 glasses so I could try more wines. Great combinations of flavors. Loved the small plates and just right for 2 to share.

Amazing service! Loved the small plates as you got to taste a bit of everything. The orecchiette mushroom dish was to die for. Would definitely go back.

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!

was not happy with our server this time...
It was my son's birthday- and we asked for a candle, saw another table get one...
No candle and I felt a bit rushed at end of meal...
But FOOD IS ALWAYS awesome.
We will be back!

I loved this restaurant. It was most notably some of the best food I've ever eaten in Denver (or many other cities). It has a great neighborhood charm feel, is modern inside, clean, and relaxed. The dinner rolls were incredible; seasoned with sea salt and a great buttery crust on the bottom. I had the Gnocchi and it was a 15 on a scale of 1-10. It was browned perfectly and the cream sauce was light, seasoned, and I wanted to order a second plate just to savor it. The dessert was equally as good and made this the perfect dinner I will go back for many times.

The preparation and presentation of every dish we ordered was exceptional. The service was attentive w/o being intrusive. We made an initial order, then decided we wanted one more and the answer was, "No problem, there's no hurry." - in relation to turning the table or getting us out of there.

Absolute BEST restaurant in Denver!! Food is out of this world and the menu changes per season. The creativity of the flavors and presentation are amazing. I am not sure where they find the staff- but top notch! Seriously, they always make you feel welcome and love to talk about the food and seem to have a lot of knowledge of the specific flavors. And the cocktails are out of this world! We are regulars!

We enjoyed the baby squash, the foie gras, the tuna, the risotto - all very delicious and beautiful. However the butter chicken was very difficult to share because of the bones. Perhaps a boneless presentation would work better and it could have been more spicy.

Overall this was a very pleasant meal and experience and we will definitely be back. The risotto was fabulous as was the preparation of the foie gras. On a very minor note, I believe that one of the servers or hostesses was using “patchouli “ which has a strong enough scent that it affected my taste buds adversely. But it’s quite possible that I’m a statistical outlier in my sensitivity to this particular scent.

Truly one of the best dining experiences in Denver! We came to celebrate an anniversary but we are going to come on other non-special occasions, as dining here is enough of an occasion on its own. Incredible food, impeccable service, lovely atmosphere. A+!

We enjoyed every item we tried! Started with the risotto and loved the chardonnay-mango coulis! Next, the seared tuna was perfect. The Indian Spiced Butter Chicken and Pork Tenderloin were cooked perfectly, as well. Best of all - most items on the menu can be prepared gluten free! Service was outstanding - attentive without being intrusive. We enjoyed watching the food being made at the counter. Very cool watching the dough rolled out for the pasta - and even better watching the artistic preparation of the apple pie and flourless chocolate cake for dessert! We will return!
