So far, my only experience with Tambien was this past weekend - they donated the food for a fundraising party for a neighborhood elementary school. Despite the fact that they were feeding over 200 people, the food was excellent, and their generosity was amazing. Because of this generosity, I will definitely visit their restaurant in Cherry Creek soon, and I trust, often.

If you want mexican food in Cherry Creek, this is the place to go. It's a little on the expensive side, but very good. They have an interesting menu and many different tequilas.

Unfortunately, I can't speak for the food - as we sat there for 10 minutes and didn't even get drink orders taken. What makes it worse is that someone from the bar - who told us she wouldn't take our drink order - did take an order from the people she sat right next to us. That kind of service is unacceptable and disappointing since I had heard good things about the resturant and was excited to try it.

All the previous reviews saying it's closed are referring to the previous restaurant in this location.

For Tambien: It's a good place. The food is above average, but not amazing. The best part is they have a late night happy hour starting at 10PM with $1 tacos and $2.50 Tecates. That rocks. Plus, it's never over-crowded and the staff and customers are not pretentious at all compared to most Cherry Creek spots.

Pros: Late night happy hour, mellow atmosphere

Cons: Food isn't amazing, but still very good.

Decided to try Sketch, even though there were some bad reviews written about them. I'm so glad I did! I was very impressed by the friendly service and the food was wonderful. The guys who work there are'nt bad to look at either!

First- I wanted to clarify the FREE LUNCH Coupon. Yes, not all lunch items are available on the FREE lunch program. For example, the restaurant does not give away the Hangar Steak, the Striped Bass, the Linguine and Clams, or the Roasted Chicken. However, of the remaining lunch items, all are included in the FREE lunch program. So, that means all of the Healthy Choice Salads and Sandwiches are FREE. Not so bad, eh?

Second- I wanted to say that this website is a great resource, both for diners and restauranteurs. It gives customers a chance to voice their opinions about the places they dig and places they don't. And, just as importantly, it allows those of us who run restaurants to be proud when we are told' "Good job" and gives us an opportunity to improve upon those things that people say they don't like about us. So, thanks CitySearch.

I stopped by sketch for lunch the other day and I couldn't disagree more with what that last reviewer said. I ordered the cobb salad and my companion had the steak salad. They were both large, well prepared and flavourful. The service was prompt and friendly, and we had a very nice time. The one issue I have with the place is that the music is played very loud and it is difficult to have a conversation. Other than that, good place for lunch.

A friend and I recieved two comp. tickets for lunch to this place Sketch..We thought it would be nice to go check it out since we also work in Cherry Creek and are always recommending restaurants to clients. As we walk in, the mousey brown haired bartender/waitress yells from behind the bar to "grab a seat anywhere" as if we were in a truck stop diner. The menu was very limited. Ordering went okay, but we waited almost 45 min. for our food..(keep in mind there were only two other tables filled in the whole place). Finally we get our food and thank god we have the comp. tickets, because my burger tasted like it had been stuck to a hundred other frozen patties in a bag from Sams Club..The salad was no better trust me..Finally we'd had enough..So after waiting another ten minutes for whats her name we flag her down and ask her for boxes and our check. It takes ANOTHER twenty minutes for her to bring it to us, at which time she refuses to honor both of our comp tickets and charges us. We would have argued but we were afraid that it would take so long that our business would be closed before we returned from our lunch break! The service was terrible, the food was terrible and way overpriced. Pretty much the only thing that went right at Sketch was the name. It was pretty sketchy.

Pros: interesting wallpaper

Cons: everything else

Since my husband and I have relied on there reviews before, I felt we should also write some, especially since we cannot agree with any of the reviews written for this restaurant. We started the evening outside and noticed a sewer smell and worse yet, we were right on top of a sewer lid with liquid coming out! So we moved inside and the smell continued to the point that they were forced lock the front door and use a side door. When we order our drinks, I asked if "bruising" the martini was a familiar term and the bartender seem rather offended by the question. The drinks arrived less than cold which indicates to me, she isn't familiar with the process. We ordered a crab louie appetizer and arugula salad, both were good but then the quality ended there. The burger was highly recommended and being a burger junkie and snob I looked forward to it. Sadly, it reminded me of the ones my cousin makes, he pats the meat for a good 10 minutes, making the meat tough and dense. The good news is that the fries were very good. We also ordered the steak with goronzola sauce and carmelized onions. It was recommended that we order the steak medium for warm meat in the middle, ours came cold and red. Onions were missing or so underwhelming that they seen to be non-existant. For the price of the dish and the size and quality of the meat, asking us to pay $4 additional for a side dish finished us off. We will not return.

Cons: inconsistant quality of food, overpriced

Are you kidding me?!? My husband and I are both in the industry. Without going into the pariculars of our extensive experience, I can say he is a wine geek and we both are very critical when it comes to our dinner. We are usually hesitant about most dinners in Denver (especially Cherry Creek) because of how snobbish they are unknowing of our world wide experience working with renowed chefs and sommeliers. This place...I don't know where to start. It is absolutely perfect for people who are late 20's or early 30's who want really good food without the white table cloth pretensiousness. The service was completely on point, the food was excellent and the atmosphere would make anyone feel comfortable; just what this town needs. Out of all my experiences, I have never felt strong enough to write a review until now. GREAT JOB!!!!

Pros: Ambience, wine list, service, bar

I took a total shot in the dark and hosted my staff holiday dinner here. We had our dinner in the private room, which was wonderful. The staff were incredible. EVERYONE loved their food. The common response from the 20 or so we had that night was, "Why haven't we heard about this place?" We were there on a Tuesday night, and the place was nearly empty. Not sure how busy it is on the weekends or during warmer weather. But, if this place doesn't get more popular, it will be a damn shame. Their menu had lots of variety, everything tasted great, and their wine selection was fantastic. If I were giving the owner advice, all I'd say is that the slacker wear worn by the staff seemed a little out of place. I would DEFINITELY recommend this for a romantic dinner, or as someplace to take a client on a business dinner.

Pros: Food, wine, service, ambience, private room.

Cons: Why are the staff wearing those dumb rock t-shirts?

My wife and I had an awesome dinner at Sketch over the weekend.
The service was prompt and personal. Nice to have staff with some personality! The resturant layout was inviting and warm, however, the food is what really stood out.
Our scallop app was just perfect. The chicken pie was extraordinary. It had a huge puff pastry and wonderful full chicken taste to it. We shared a chocolate mousse that we both agreed was the best we have ever had.
We'll be back - I'm guessing many times.
All the best!
