Impressive setting, service, and food (OK, and prices to match). It was our anniversary. They treated us well and gave us a complimentary dessert. Great place for a special occasion.

Best Dinner, Best Serving Staff and Best Waiter (Scott)! What a treat for our party of 14 during a very successful business trip. Could not ask for more. The 8 ounce Filet, Brussels Sprouts, Scalloped Potatoes, and Pomegranate Martini...flawless!! Can’t say enough.

The service was AWESOME! The food was average for a steak house nothing on a WOW factor here. There are too many other options in Denver that are locally owned and not a chain.

They had seafood options. Don't recall everything on the menu - but we had a steak and the beef dish.
