The food was presented well and had great flavors however portions for entree course were more like a small plate with no side dishes. The service was disappointing. They cleared the flatware while we were waiting for entree and set up the table for dessert. They were not aware that we had not received entree course until we reminded them.

A great tasting menu with paired wines. Service was excellent! Great for foodies, dates, and wine buffs!

Just had the Opus winter tasting menu and it was fabulous. The appetizer, a sort of deconstructed eggs Benedict was amazing. The scallop with smoked mussels and capers was also delectable. The monkfish dish and the beef 2 ways were also very very tasty. The desert was the weekest of the dishes but still just fine. Topped with a fine bottle of Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir our dinner was memorable. The bread and butter were also very memorable. The service started a bit shaky but got much better as the evening went along.

This used to be among my favorite restaurants in the Denver area. In Littleton, the food was outstanding and the service was excellent. Perhaps it was unsustainable in Littleton - I am not sure. The location on Josephine in Denver (Cherry Creek) should be great, but it is a tough location for restaurants for some reason. Restaurants have opened and closed here frequently. Cherry Creek is upscale, population-dense, and can afford an upscale restaurant. However, the atmosphere is not as good, the service down a notch, and the food, while still very good, seems to have taken a step backwards. To be clear, the menu is still excellent, and the food still very good, but it is simply not the same. With the coupons and promotions that seem to be running, it is a great value. To command the premium prices and to fill the restaurant, they need to step things up. The space is smaller, and it should be easy to fill it up given the variety and creativity of the menu, but for some reason, it is just good, no longer a fabulous dining experience.

First ill start by saying I can't complain TOO much as I got an online coupon deal for this restaurant. So, that said, this is my review. The place is pretty. The server was ok, not super friendly but did her job. I had the scallops. They were gritty. Grit in every bite. There were 3, with a few tiny baby beets and a drizzle of sauce for $18. My partner had the steak sandwich. It came with a ginormous bread that was far too big for the meat. The steak was half mid rare and half well done. he said it tasted funny, old maybe. Came with fries, $18. I ordered a glass of wine. I got a short wine list and their cheapest wine was $13 a glass. No house wine? $13, whew, I'll just have the one. Altogether, coupon or not, we weren't impressed by far and won't be back. :(
