Used a recent groupon for $30(not the price-fixe option) and pleasantly surprised again dining at this restaurant. This was our second visit in about a year. Place overall has a very cool vibe and a nice bar area. I had the pan seared fish tacos that were excellent and my wife had a po boy shrimp sandwich that she remarked... More

The Tuna Cervice was outstanding. The Truffle french fries not so good, they forgot the Truffle oil. The salmon entre was very good - the salmon was moist and tasty (the portion was generous). The Colorado lamb was excellent. (unfortunately I still don't like brussel sprouts). The Lemon Drop Martini was really very well done. The creme brule very good.... More

Used a Groupon bargain for the 3-course prix fixe meal, a great bargain. The shrimp (her) and mahi-mahi ceviche (me) appetizers were very tasty and well presented. The pork (her) and salmon (me) mains were equally excellent. We had to save some for later in order to make room for the mud pie dessert! The service was excellent; servers and... More

We've been here about 3 or 4 times over the last 6 months. Food has always been consistently good as well as the service. A bit noisy for conversation as a couple.

The service was perfect in every way and the menu is interesting and diverse. The diablo eggs put the devil in deviled. Exceptional. I am a fish taco snob and am reluctant to try them outside of Mexico, but OBL's are as close to that as I have found

Went the other night with a Groupon for the first time. The restaurant is really lovely with a nice looking bar. Was hoping to be impressed by the food, but unfortunately no. I had the pork loin - extremely overdone, so tough, I gave up eating it. The stacked enchiladas tasted mostly of the corn tortillas, not pleasant. The Mahi... More

The appetizers, entrees and dessert made one of the best meals that I have had in a long time. The service was also great and the atmosphere was perfect.

My husband and I have been yo Old Blinking Light multiple times. They have an excellent happy hour and the atmosphere is cozy, yet hip and urban. This is a great place for New Mexican/American food. The salmon is phenominal. Would highly recommend!

As others have pointed out, great happy hour menu, but this time we came with my wife, kids and parents. Very interesting menu with lots of creative dishes. The lamb sirloin was especially good, as was the scallop dish. Can you drive into downtown Denver and get better? Sure. But if you're in the south suburbs, Old Blinking Light is... More
