We travelled to Prague last fall for the first time, so were curious to see how Cafe Prague lived up to its name. I was pleasantly surprised to find that our server was actually from Prague! Two of us had the yeager schnitzel special, one had the trout and one had the sauerbraten. I tried some of everone's food. :o) It was all delicious. Found out I actually LIKE sauerbraten, and I really didn't think I would. The red cabbage was excellent (but they didn't put enough on the plate...maybe afraid that people in Morrison, CO wouldn't appreciate it?) and the schnitzels were very good too. They came in a wild mushroom gravy...mmmmm. All in all, the tastes came very close to the food we experienced in the actual city of Prague. So what kept me from giving it five stars? Kitchen service was very very slow. Our server was very attentive, but it took almost an hour between the soup/salad course and the entree. And truthfully, it's a bit overpriced. Typically, this kind of food is inexpensive, so I was a little disappointed that they felt they had to price it high, maybe to make people think that it's a fancy restaurant. I'm glad we went, and if you don't mind over-paying a bit, and aren't in any hurry, the food really is wonderful.

Cafe Prague has a great menu. For those of us Czech's there is Svickova, Roast Pork and bread dumplings. For everyone else there is great seafood, steak and chicken dishes. Super variety and it's all fantastic. The beer and wine selection is exceptional as well.
Dessert can't be missed, so be sure to save room.
Reservations are important. Be sure to sit on the patio if the weather is nice. It's beautiful. The tables have umbrellas, so if a passing cloud drops a few down, just put it up and wait it out...it's absolutely worth it.
Plan on a couple of hours for dinner. The service is prompt, attentive and very friendly; but, you will not be rushed. Sit back and enjoy!!

We went for 5280 week. This was our first time at Cafe Prague, although we've tried to go for a while off and on. They do not have an account with Open Table (but they SHOULD), so to get reservations (which are almost a must), you have to call during dinner hours. They are pretty busy all the time, mostly with an older crowd (50 and over mostly). Not that an older crowd is bad, it is just a different dynamic.

We were seated right away, and service throughout was very good. We thought the 5280 menu was very good and thought it was a very good value, including a $26.40 (half of 5280) bottle of wine. Our broccoli soup, caesar salad, orange pepper duck and pork entrees, bread, and crepe dessert were all good, and a few other items on the 5280 menu looked appealing as well. Overall, good service, good value for $52.80, and a good experience.

On a side note, when we looked at their main menu, almost every entree was over $25. We really feel that is way too high, as even the very best restaurants in the Denver area charge from $18-25 for their entrees (excluding absurd steakhouses). While Cafe Prague is good, it doesn't run with the big dogs, if you will.

You can find free parking in Morrison if you don't mind walking a block. If you must park across the street from the restaurants, it will cost you at the pay lot.

The restaurant has a fine ambiance and a very energetic staff. The menu has a good variety. Their specialty of the evening (pork shank) was exceptional and their steak was as good as I've had. Czech beer on draft, fine wines. Easily the best meal we had in Denver and a high point for our trip.

What could be better, the world's best beer on tap with the proper glass. The food was great. It was as if we had been transported to the Czeck Republic for lunch.
