Overall excellent 5* experience, but... Our two tag-team servers took exquisite care of us, especially Phil, our wine guy. They’re in the process of remodeling, though the one feature we thought odd, the blue/green/yellow “disco”-like lights in the ceiling, are staying. Maybe John holds disco parties? Food was phenomenal. One of best tuna tartars I’ve ever had, accompanied with luscious... More

Ate with a large group (20 people) in a private dining room. We had a limited menu for the group, but everything was delicious, choices were more that adequate, and service was very quick. The restaurant is in the Ritz Carlton hotel and we walked from a few blocks away. They were ready for us and seated us right away.... More

The quality of the steaks here are incredible. One of the best steaks I ever had. Ordered the ribeye and it came out medium rare, just as I ordered it. Another must try is the Calamari appetizer. The calamari was in a light tempura batter but included peppers and olives as well. Really tasty! Also try their duck confit fried... More

We had never participated in the 5280 restaurant week before and never dine in downtown Denver. So when friends invited us, we thought it would be a nice change of pace. What a disappointment! Was this meal supposed to encourage us to ever return? I had the House Salad to start. It was over dressed. My dressing was different from... More

First thing... portions here are HUGE. I mean, my wife and I both needed to be wheeled out on a wheel barrow by the time we were done. The bar area is a little loud... but I had no complaints about the table we had, which still had relatively loud ambient noise, but not so much as to be a... More

My mom and I went to Denver to watch the Denver/Chargers game for a mother/daughter weekend. The game was an absolute blast and our seats were to die for. We stayed at the Magnolia, which was first rate. We were excited to top the adventure off with dinner at Elway's after the game. What a disappointment! Drinks were great and... More
