Visited this restaurant on Valentines day after a friends recommendation. Arrived at our reserved time and was promptly seated and our waiter immediately came to our table to introduce himself, explained the specials and said he would return after we had a chance to look at the wine list. A full ten minutes of drinking water later, after he continuously walking past our table ignoring us, he finally showed up to take our wine order.
When I spoke to someone at the restaurant prior to making the reservation, I told the person on the phone that my girl friend was gluten intolerant and was told that that would not be a problem. Upon ordering, we learned that the gluten free selections were very limited and after my girl friend ordered the lamb, which the waiter told her was gluten free, he returned later to tell us that it was not, plus his knowledge of whether other items on the menu were gluten was very limited.
We both finally ordered the rib eye steak and salad. I had a Caesar salad that tasted like no Caesar salad I had ever eaten in my life and was fare at best, but when the steaks arrived, that was the topper. Our rib eyes were probably a half inch thick, tough and full of grissel. Neither of us could fininsh our steaks, so we had them consigned to the doggy bag for the doggie and as it was Valentines night and the place was packed, I requested the bill without comment or complaint to the waiter, but it was not over yet, Upon examining the bill the waiter had charged us for the $27 lamb dinner that had been cancelled after learning it was not gluten free.
The bill was fixed, I paid it and we left and I assure you WE WILL NEVER RETURN. As we dine out often, there are way to many high quality restaurants with outstanding service in the Denver area and the management of this place needs to get a clue.
