Let me begin by saying that I am one of the only people I know who thinks that Fruition is something other than world class. The food and the menu is exceptional, the ambience, wonderful, but there is something about it, something I quite can't put my finger on, that keeps it from being one of my favorite restaurants in...

You would not expect a restaurant of this caliber in the area it is located. The food is outstanding, from the meat balls to the bone-in rib eye. This whole location (butcher, wine and cheese shop, bakery, coffee shop etc a great idea for this neighborhood, Really nice way to repurpose a building and an area.

Fantastic restaurant in Denver. The menu is a bit limited and seems to be updated daily depending on what the ingredients they are sourcing locally and from their farm. That said, everything I tried from the menu was excellent. The Spanish grilled octopus has terrific flavor and was perfectly grilled. The lamb was fantastic, also perfectly prepared. The portions were... More

We were celebrating our 15 year wedding anniversary & saw that this was the #1 Trip Adviser rated restaurant in Denver (where we were traveling) so we had to go! I had requested a special table which they certainly accommodated and they even had "Happy 15th Anniversary" on the top of our menu! Talk about attention to detail! The food... More

Fruition is one of my favorite farm-to-table restaurants in Denver. I have been going here for years and the food and drinks never fail. The wine list is tasty and reasonable. The beer list has a nice selection of European Beer and Microbrew. My date chose a glass of Pinot Noir, Sharecroppers Willamette Valley, Oregon ’12 and I had a... More

An icon is dead. Fruition was our favorite restaurant for many years. The service and food was always perfect. Last night was a completely different story. The food varied from awful, to ok, to good. Soft shell crab appetizer....where is the crab? Octopus appetizer...tasty but where is the octopus? Pork tenderloin...very good. Lamb...mediocre. And the worst of all...the walleye pike.... More

Visited here on June 27 for my wife's birthday. She had softshell crab and duck breast while I had salmon carpaccio and bavette steak. Owner was very welcoming and we liked the local feel of the place. We thought the food was very good but somehow lacking in something, certainly seasoning.

My hubby, a couple of friends, and I went to Fruition for dinner. Although the place is a little cozy (there are probably only 12-15 tables), the ambience was very inviting and very classy. Our maitre d' was very friendly and took our orders promptly. For starters, we ordered the salmon carpaccio as well as the soft-shell crab. Both were... More

Recently ate here to celebrate my Mother's 80th birthday. 3 of us were vegan and the rest omnivores. It's always a little scary to eat vegan dishes in non-vegan restaurants, but Fruition did a great job. On par with some of the better meals I have had in Los Angeles and New York.
