This is the second time we have dined (as opposed to "eaten") at this excellent restaurant. We had the crab appetizer, the duck salad and spinach salad, the steak and the squid ink pasta and all were superb. The wine list is impressive, with several selections of Colorado wine. The service is excellent - attentive but not intrusive. The atmosphere... More

Stopped in for dinner with my honey today. I enjoy 626 because they offer cuisine as opposed to "food." It's refreshing to have a weeknight dinner out with a little class. The place was empty, since we were there at 4 pm. They offered to let us order from either the lunch or dinner menus, which was nice. The lunch... More

We just had one of the most pleasurable and relaxing dinners at 626 on Rood and just had to share!! We sat outside on the patio and didn't want to leave. We started the evening with two flights of wine. Willamette Damnit and Pink is In. A three glass sample of Oregon Pinot and Rose respectively. Chilled cream of Cauliflower... More

626 on Rood has been my favorite place to eat since they opened their doors. I appreciate that the owner is choosing to use local meat that is free from all the "junk" that most people are used to. Yes, the grass fed beef used for the burger is a different flavor but still delish! PS we went there with... More

A friend of mine and I used to frequent this place almost weekly. The Bacon Bloody Mary and the 626 burger were our favorites, and the BEST in town. I used to tell everyone that if they wanted a good burger to go here. Unfortunately, after my last visit, i probably wont go back :-(. They've recently changed the meat... More

We did change the beef we used for the 626 Burger. It use to be made with choice Black Angus ground beef. And even though it was high quality meat, it was still a commodity product, meaning it was from cattle raised anywhere from Iowa to Colorado, not hormone or anti-bioic free, and finished in feed lots. This is the... More

My fiancé and I are visiting GJ for a couple days and decided to try 626 due to the reviews. We enjoyed great service. The food flavors and presentation were excellent. The calamata olive bread was so good we purchased a loaf to go. We enjoyed their 'flight' of French wines and flourless chocolate mousse cake for dessert. We highly... More

I was impressed with 626 on Rood. Service was wonderful. Atmosphere was great food was delicious. I had the smoked duck salad half order and the soup of the moment. It was great. I did come in slightly after lunch so it may have been their slow time. I will be coming back here again.

Frankly, neither my wife and I were impressed with our meal at 626. Service was so so, our server showed no personality at all, her runner should have been our server as she was quite personable. The food was nothing special the beet salad was topped with huge chunks of canned beets. Beets have a strong earthy flavor, should be... More

This is definitely one of the top 2 places to eat in Grand Jct. Extremely good food, made with locally grown (some in back of the restaurant) and raised ingredients, the chef comes up with some amazing pairings and recipes. They have an incredible wine selection, with pre paired flights, and great bottles. The sharing menu is an awesome way... More

Very good food for an average price. One of four or five really good places to eat in GJ. I have not had bad experiences with service at all, five or six times eating there in the past 10 years.
