Best Pork Buns Around

The super hip once mortuary turned restaurant and lounge is a place I wish I could take home with me. The atmosphere, the decor, the food and the drinks were on point as well as the view of Denver from the rooftop. I'm coming back when the weather is warmer so I can really enjoy this place!

I came here with friends last week and truly loved the menu. Very exotic, everything sounded delicious and the service was awesome. I ordered all of the "buns" on the menu- duck, pork belly, chicken, and gyro and loved the duck and pork belly. Everyone at the table loved what they had and we had one individual who for lent...

This was my second dinner at Linger and both times the experience has been fantastic. The sharing and small plates menu lets us try out quite a few dishes and suits the size of our appetites as well.

This was one of the top recommendations I had found for Denver while searching before we went on our trip. It was a Tuesday night and we were told there was an hour wait, so we walk a couple of blocks down the street for pre-dinner drinks and then get a text message saying they had a cancellation and that...

I went here for the first time to meet a friend for lunch. The service was exceptional and the food delectable. They have do many unique small plate options to choose from. Their wine selection is also great. I will return.

Went here for an early evening dinner with reservations thru OpenTable. It is very crowded, so reservations are a must. The fairly large bar area up the spiral staircase is all first-come, so it is possible to hover over a group and snag the table as soon as they get up, but not a very elegant way to begin a... More

I have been to this restaurant twice. The first for my birthday in July and the second for Denver Restaurant Week 2015.Both times there was alot of consistency in the dishes. Great unique flavorful dishes. The only criticism I have is I wish there were more new options on the menu.

We had Fri 7:30p dinner reservations for Denver Restaurant Week. We arrived around 7p & ordered drinks in the upstairs bar. Luckily some patrons offered to share their table or we would have been in the way since the tables are packed in pretty tight. We ordered the Linger White Wine which was tasty altho not similar to a Pinot... More

This is i an up and coming area. More in the up than coming at this point though. Street parking was ok to find. We had a reservation for 6 people and we were seated right away. The place is different in a really good way. Table was huge so it was a bit hard to talk with everyone in... More

My first visit here was awesome, seriously one of the best meals I've ever had. Devils on horseback appetizer, Cuban sandwich was great. I can't wait to come back & work my way through the menu.
