The food and service are top notch. Great atmosphere for small groups. A neighborhood gem for sure, but worth driving to enjoy. One of the best restaurants in Denver.

Not sure. We visited the restaurant on a trip several years ago and loved the experience, including the farm to table food. We were excited to return and the staff and ambiance didn’t disappoint, but the menu seemed a little predictable and uninteresting. A little...More
