Yum, stopped in on the advice of a friend and was not disappointed. Not all that hungry so the chef split the Caesar salad and we added a couple of sides of garlic prawns . The best. I had quinoa and kale salad, loved the crunch and texture. Service was spot on and there are interesting pictures to look at... More

The outdoor patio drew us here but it went downhill from there. The service was slow with no explanation. We ordered fairly quickly, our bottle of wine arrived finally then we never saw our waitress for over 30 minutes till our starter ceasar salad arrived, which was average to say the least. Then it became dark and cold while still... More

We had dinner here. We liked our food. However, the service was below our expectation. For their price point, I would have expected a welcoming staff. However, what we encountered was completely opposite. During our visit, we never felt that we were welcomed. I would suggest to try another restaurant for the possibility of a better experience. Our waitress was... More

Nice place, excellent service and good food, with very reasonables prices. We had soup of the day (with sweet potato), Ceasar Salad and bison meatloaf. Everything was tasty, also good portions.

Pleasant outlook to the river from the sunny deck. Despite parasols, quite difficult to sit out of direct sun. Service was young and personable. Menu a little limited. Food quality perfectly fine, without blowing you away. Overall a decent price for the experience.

What happened to this establishment? This summer the Whitetooth Bistro has declined in quality in both food and service. Slow, inefficient and bland in all areas. Where did the passion, personality and professionalism go? Once regular guests of the restaurant, my associates and I will not be returning. Upon our last visit, we were informed that much of the long-standing... More

We visited 2 weeks ago, and at first it looked promising: good reviews, nice decor, cute patio, appealing menu... But then came disappointment after disappointment. Some other customers were served earlier than us; we had to wait at least 20 minutes (and ask a few times) to get our drinks, then wait another 20 minutes or so for the food....... More

We thought we'd venture into Golden to see what kind of a tourist town it was, well, we were disappointed but we stumbled upon a great little restaurant. OK, the service was poor but that can be so temperamental anyway, I hate even mentioning it. We weren't expecting much because there isn't much in Golden during the summer but we... More

The night we were there the lead chef quit. We waited 1 1/2 hours for our entrees. No management or owner was present to offer any consolation. Food was good. Prices what one would expect. We left before our dessert was served because we were sick of waiting. If management doesn't care why should we? Maybe the chef knew something... More
