When I confirmed in person a few days before our dinner I noticed the place smelled of smoke and it was clearly smoky inside, but I was told that it was temporary. When we got to dinner the first thing we noticed was the smoke. We sat near the door so that helped. The food was great though and you forget a bit about the odor during the meal. I had an ahi taco appetizer and wife had butterfish and crab which were both great. My wife had the lemongrass chicken with fried rice and a curry and I the miso cod which too were excellent. The food was the best we had in Denver. After I used the restroom that was on a “smoke free” floor it was awful to go back to the restaurant. We left shortly thereafter. The workers agreed the smoke was bad and worse for them as they had to work under those conditions on a regular basis. We were surprised the management hasn’t fixed the problem and they passed inspection. I would not eat here until the ventilation is fixed- for the sake of patrons and staff.
