“Lunch on the Patio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

When traveling to Grand Junction and the surrounding area we always make time for a meal at 626 on Rood. Lunch on the patio under a umbrella is the best. They offer many items from local produce, such as the tasty chilled summer squash soup I had this time, accompanied by a spinach salad. That way I could save room for the very tasty dark chocolate sorbet. My husband's favorite is the 626 Burger with saffron mayonnaise, just delicious. We are hoping to return soon so we can try a dinner meal, the menus feature so many good choices.

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Service was excellent, but the food was not all that great. The food servings were attractive, but somewhat meager in portion. This was an anniversary occasion for which I'd rather chosen another restaurant. We thought it overrated and over priced. They seem to have a following of customers, but not us.

“Manhattan quality in Colorado”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This is the second time we have dined (as opposed to "eaten") at this excellent restaurant. We had the crab appetizer, the duck salad and spinach salad, the steak and the squid ink pasta and all were superb. The wine list is impressive, with several selections of Colorado wine. The service is excellent - attentive but not intrusive. The atmosphere is modern and quietly elegant. We moved to Colorado from the east coast and have had the opportunity to enjoy wonderful restaurants from Manhattan to Hilton Head, and both feel that 626 could fit in the top 100 anywhere. We plan to eat here every time we visit Grand Junction.

“Fine dining in Grand Junction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Stopped in for dinner with my honey today. I enjoy 626 because they offer cuisine as opposed to "food." It's refreshing to have a weeknight dinner out with a little class. The place was empty, since we were there at 4 pm. They offered to let us order from either the lunch or dinner menus, which was nice. The lunch menu had a great selection of creative sandwiches and was far less expensive, but we were really hungry for a nice meal, so we opted for the dinner menu. Like any good restaurant with a true chef, the dinner menu changes daily and was litterally hot off the printer. I bypassed my usual favorite - the lobster Mac and cheese- and opted for the Black Angus New York Strip. They happily substituted the smashed potatoes for the sweet potato fries which were on the menu. The husband had the Porter Braised Beef Roast. Both dishes were excellent. Very flavorful, an appropriately sized portion. The server was very pleasant and made a great recommendation on a red wine. Overall, we were extremely pleased with this experience. We will be back.

“Patio Pleasure Perfection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

We just had one of the most pleasurable and relaxing dinners at 626 on Rood and just had to share!!
We sat outside on the patio and didn't want to leave. We started the evening with two flights of wine. Willamette Damnit and Pink is In. A three glass sample of Oregon Pinot and Rose respectively.
Chilled cream of Cauliflower soup, Heirloom Tomato Salad (watched the chief come out to the garden and harvest fresh Basil for the tomato salad) and Smoked Duck Salad rounded out our evening dinner.....yummy stuff and highly recommended. Finishing it off we had a chocolate dessert martini and a decadent Tres Leche Cake with Salted Caramel ice cream....OMG
The service was perfect with just the right amount of interaction. 626 is a top restaurant in Grand Junction. Don't miss this place!
