We loved this place, even though we haven't been big fans of the other Fox restaurants we have dined at. It only took a few minutes to snag a table without a reservation on a weekend, which we attribute to shear luck more than anything... the place was packed. The staff was very accommodating to our four year-old, even though... More

We stayed at JW Marriott and ate at North 5 times in one weekend. It is THAT good. There isn't anything bad on the menu and the drinks are outstanding. If you like cocktails, the Juliet is one of the best I've ever had. The homemade break is wonderful and the appetizers (calamari) are great. The fig and prosciutto pizza... More

Rustic and well planned, this restaurant's claim to fame is their homemade pasta. It lives up to everything they boast about. We had 3 different pastas and each pasta was done perfectly with the correct consistancy that homemade pasta is suppose to have. The sauces especially the Bolognese were outstanding. Service was good and we had a great casual dining... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I ate here. Most Italian places seem to have very bland flavors and be more or else olive garden clones, even at the higher end of the price range. Everything here was delicious, and they even had half priced bottles of wine on Sunday. Highly recommend.

Fantastic food from the spicy shrimp to the scallops and cheese risotto this meal could not have been much better. But not to be missed is the caramel and sea salt budoni. It is possibly the best dessert of your lifetime.

We love the chef's board, the wine selection and the mussels. My buddy from Lexington always wants to come here when she visits. We people watch and catch up and drink and nibble. And then go to Arhaus and talk about what we would buy if we had enough $. I love this place.

Awesome ambiance and great food. Went during Denver Restaurant week, but it's great anytime. Try the fig and goat cheese pizza.

Tried this during Denver Restaurant week. The appetizers (for example, the burrata with artichokes, lemon, pistachios, etc.) are incredible and the pasta dishes are definitely above average. They're handmade and you can taste that. The dessert I tried (salted caramel) was good, but very rich and needed to be broken up with some cake or something--it was straight pudding in... More

The meal started with a delicate Bruschetta appetizer. Next came the ambrosial seafood entree perfectly presented. All the dishes to follow were creative, beautiful and delicious.
