I hate Restaurant Week and usually avoid going out; however, when I looked at 1515's menu for the week I was drawn in. Many options looked good so we booked a table. My Restaurant Week fears were unfounded -- the service was impeccable, the setting is sophisticated with the exposed brick walls, lovely light fixtures, white tablecloths, the spacing is... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2017

I've visited the US a few times and sampled some pretty delightful food (mainly in NYC) and some pretty ropey stuff too (mainly on the west coast where size and ambiance seem to be the main selling points with flavour a secondary consideration), 1515 really challenged my perception of America as being a land of poor-quality meat and mushy veg...

One of our favorite (though not-inexpensive) places in the downtown Denver area, 1515 provides food that is always beautifully served, from a creative (and not burdensomely extensive) menu. It is a couple blocks off the beaten path, but it is always an awesome experience for us. I had the 7X Wagyu Hanging Tender Steak, served with Creamed Spinach, Smoked Potato... More

They have amazing food and an incredible drink and wine list. The service literally blew me away. Johnson is awesome at what he does, and we will definitely be back!! The wagyu steak is incredible, and very reasonably priced. They also have vintage Jordan cabernet which is my favorite wine! I highly recommend dining here :)

Hubby and I visited this fantastic restaurant on Thanksgiving and had the most delightful experience. The service is impeccable, the food offerings are delicious and beautifully presented, and the atmosphere is very enjoyable and relaxing. We very highly recommend this restaurant for a wonderful experience.

Went here for a James Beard dinner and had a great time -- Went back -- they come close but with these prices they should deliver more -- no dishes are truly great some are just bland -- Good wine and cocktails -- friendly staff

Restaurant was empty which made for a slightly odd atmosphere. Food was great interesting choices quality cuts of meat well prepared. Good wine choices. Pre dinner cocktails could of been better, average. Deserts flambaye looked interesting, unfortunately the consumption didn't live upto expectations. Overall bill was high, meal was good but not great for cost

Positives -- one of the best wine lists overall and perhaps the best wines by the glass list in town -- great desserts -- The Lobster Thermidor is good but at $41 ought to be great. Vegetables were limp -- lobster tasty. Chef Teng is a great guy and tries hard -- he just seems to get close but never... More

Had a business dinner during a convention. The restaurant handled multiple groups very well. They have multiple areas to accommodate different groups. We had good wine. Dinner was excellent--I had pasta with shrimp--delicious. Would return again.
