They take advantage of their proximity to the theater to jack up their prices. Service is mediocre and food is so-so. Drinks are pretty good, however. Wouldn't spend the money to return here.

We stopped by this restaurant before heading over to the Mile Hi Sci Fi event at the Denver Film Center. We were greeted by extremely nice hostesses, and were seated promptly. Our waitress was so helpful, welcoming, and very knowledgeable about the dinner options. She set the tone for a really great dinner. I have to recommend that you try the Dark and Stormy (rum and ginger beer) from the bar. It is fantastic! The hummus plate and the exotic mushroom flatbread were out of this world. We will definitely go back again!

It has an interesting menu with lots of good choices. We started with the proscuitto & fig pizza. Not a typical combination but one that was really good not just for the unusual toppings but the crust was also very good. We had a variety of entrees all of which ranged from good to great. The service was excellent, but the atmosphere didn't really work for me. While nicely decorated it reminded me of a casual diner environment, not a fancy restaurant.

We stopped in for lunch at the Encore and took a conservative stab at the weekend brunch menu. Most of the menu was tilted towards creative breakfast items. We stuck to lunch basics but were rewarded by out-of-the-ordinary treatments. The Falafel Burger with hummus, cucumber, and yogurt dressing ($9.00 on the menu, $10.00 on the check), garnished with a few apple slices and a small mesclun Side Salad ($1.00), got high marks. The Encore Burger ($11.00 on the menu, $12.00 on the check) featured a gruyere-bacon-blue cheese compote which received two opposing votes at our table: 1 Hit, 1 Miss. The burger had a terrific flame-grilled flavor, no wonder since they have two huge flame grills in the open kitchen behind the counter. There was also a subtle underlay that was very cool: the slightest hint of an anchovy-tinged sauce (possibly Worcestershire) under the meat patty. We also tried a side of Pork Green Chili ($1.00 on the menu, no charge on the check), a tiny dish of pork dice in a thin chili sauce, quite nice. Service was generally good. Encore has a wonderful kitchen and knows how to use it.

This restaurant is a good spot for a tasty lunch. The menu was nicely varied, with numerous creative options that I would like to return to sample. I found the staff courteous and friendly. I would recommend having a meal here when visiting Tattered Cover Bookstore or the Denver Botanic Gardens.
