I ordered the Gyro - it was fabulous. I am visiting Denver for business and found this walking along the pedestrian mall. Quick and friendly service by Alix. Thanks for a great meal.

This is a great place to eat during Happy Hour! Its drink and appetizer specials are very good. I have eaten here twice during business trips to Denver, and I really enjoy it. It's very reasonably priced, and the portions are huge. (Our party took our leftover food in boxes and shared it with the homeless folks in the Mall.)... More

A busy place on a weekend night. Right on 16th Street Mall. Great selection of beer and food. Elk burger, and fish and chips were very good. Restaurant looks like it was designed out of an old theater.

The Paramout is located in downtown Denver on 16th Street. There is a wide variety of burgers offered. It's located on 16th Street which gives you great access to that area of Denver and access to the free bus that runs the length of the street. It is over for both lunch and dinner.

My wife and I stopped here after spending a good deal of time trying to decide where to eat on the 16th St Mall. The patio was full so we ended up inside. Our waitress was friendly but seemed to be having an off day. I'm guessing the frenzy of the restaurant wasn't helping anything. I ordered the Durango Burger,... More

Cool gastro-diner. Great beer selection. Great service. We got the appetizer sampler, it was huge. The Juans were delicious.

I was happy to see those giant overhead heaters outside of the Paramount Cafe! I love being able to sit, eat and watch the crazy spectacle of Denver downtown nightlife. I ordered the BBQ Chicken salad and it was amazing. It was served with chipotle ranch and bbq sauce. The service was super fast, and I was checked up on... More

We visited Denver for a night, and wanted to grab happy hour close to the hotel (Magnolia hotel). When we stopped in H&M to shop, we asked the cashier where to go for a drink. He recommended the place, and we are glad he did. It's a cool old theatre made into a bar, with great outdoor seating right on... More

I had the Bison Burger with Gorgonzola and grilled mushrooms with no bun. It was perfect! French fries were just the right crunch and served hot. The service was fast and professional. I had a Chardonnay "High" something...it was very good. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was at this longtime spot. I've eaten at several of... More
