After failing to get a late reservation at any of the pricy steakhouses in Denver, we opted for Marlowe's in downtown. The atmosphere is warm, but because it's quite large, not exactly cozy. I can see where it would be a high energy bar scene on the weekends. We were there on a Thursday evening. They have a nice selection... More

Location and food were both excellent and even though it was restaurant week things were slow due to the temperature. Our food was excellent (Brussels Sprouts particularly recommended). Even though it was empty the table service seemed a little off compared to our previous visits, but still a place we will return.

I was here for dinner with two colleagues. Make sure you get the Brussels sprouts! I also had a pasta dish which was excellent. My colleagues enjoyed their meals as well. Service was good.

I've visited Marlowe's for years for business meetings and group functions where the facility was rented for the night. Great service, professional people, and the food is great. Besides all that, the bar is great to visit with friends after work.

My 'to go' order came up fast, but what I wanted to sip, while waiting, fell short. They use glasses that advertise Nitro Vanilla Porter, but they don't serve it!! NOT GOOD!! I'm sure Breckenridge Brewing wouldn't appreciate that. Like everything else in this area, the rise in the number of wandering drug addicts is taking its toll. Marlowe's is... More

This restaurant sits just off of the 16th St. mall and is a nice place in a nice setting. We were told that they were famous for their steak but since we weren't terribly hungry only ordered fish and chips and some appetizers. The food was on par with what you'd expect. Service was very good. Very nice atmosphere inside.

Happy hours begin at 3 pm and include Grey Goose martinis for $7.50, yes! Superbly prepared and served ice cold. Add an appetizer (discounted) like calamari with shishito peppers (fabulous flavor combination), grab a table by the window and watch the world go by. Downtown Denver at its best!

First time visiting Marlowe's and will return. Appetizers are EXCELLENT! I could have just gotten all of those. We had a party of 7 and all of us were pleased. No one was disappointed in their food. Will return next trip.

Thank Lookingforsun4

Marlowe's echoes with the history and charm of Denver and the 16th Street Mall. Since opening our doors on the ground floor of the Historic Kittredge Building in 1982, Marlowe's witnessed downtown's steady growth from parking lots to skyscrapers. Our huge, imported sliding windows open to the 16th Street Mall and afford a wonderful opportunity for guests to watch downtown life glide past, while our hand-crafted Vermont cherry wood bars, vaulted ceilings and black-and-white tile floors are just a taste of our unique architectural style. Marlowe's serves lunch from 11am until 4pm every day of the week. We serve dinner from 4:30pm until 10pm Sunday-Thursday, and from 4:30pm until 11pm Friday and Saturday. You can join us for our delicious (and locally-sourced) brunch on Saturday and Sunday starting at 9am and going until 4pm. We have a late night menu, consisting of just our appetizers, every night for an hour after we stop serving our full menu. Marlowe's also has sizeable wine, cocktail and beer lists. We offer over 21 draughts, more than half from local breweries. Happy Hour is Monday-Friday from 3pm until 7pm and from 10pm until close. Since Marlowe's grand opening more than three decades ago, we have been one of Denver's most popular spots for lunch, after-work cocktails and dinner. We continue to be committed to our community and pride ourselves on being the oldest locally owned and operated restaurant on the 16th Street Mall. We place strong emphasis on locally sourced products and love being a staple of the Downtown Denver scene!
