This was more of a share a plate meal, but we ordered almost everything on the menu and re-orderd the favorites. This had a down town San Diego vibe to it. I really liked it.

The menu mix is great. I ordered the Masala Dosa and it was...okay. Stunning presentation, though. The energy in the restaurant is great, but I just don't know about eating on top of what used to be a coffin stand. Just don't know...that's a bit unpalatable to me. The appetizers are good, though. Try those.

It was my first time in the Mile High City and I'm not sure that I could've picked a better restaurant. I'm sure there are classier establishments with all the Michelin stars one can accrue and other eateries with menu offerings too good to be true. But Linger gets some things right. I'm not much of a subdued lighting kind... More

My wife and I really enjoyed the dining experience, the well-informed staff, speed and uniqueness of the street dishes. The Fish tacos and Lamb kabobs were outstanding. Not cheap and certainly better in a group so you can order different dishes and try unique flavors.

Great local restaurant and bar! Small plates were expensive but delicious! Must reserve well in advance, as the place is usually very crowded. Need to sit upstairs on the patio if possible!

I was super excited to come here, but the food was just terrible. It was very fake ethnic and just seemed low quality. I would never go back and would not recommend it.

...that would be better if tall apartment buildings weren't built which, for some, completely blocked the view. The beer selection was pretty fun, the menu was great, but overall I left feeling I'd already eaten here 10 times, which is odd as I've only eaten here once. Really nothing new. One cool thing about it is that it used to... More

My husband and I enjoyed Linger last week. First, the restaurant has 3 separate areas: bar, rooftop, and regular dining. You can sit at the bar and if a spot becomes available you can just order food there. No food is on the roof but there is a bar and great views of Denver. We were able to get seated... More

My friend and I were staying at a hotel in Downtown Denver, and decided to walk to take a 30 minute walk to Linger's on a Saturday night. The walk provided us with an opportunity to do some site seeing of other communities around Denver, which was a lot of fun! Positives: - Excellent food! My friend enjoyed a yummy... More
