I was really excited for the Halibut with Corn and Green Chili Chowder. Unfortunately, there was not a green chili to be found on my plate and it was very bland and dull. When the server came to check on us I told her the issue. I asked

Whenever I visit my children & granddaughter in Denver, I want to include dinner @ Potager. Absolutely fabulous decor and some of the finest food and attentive service we've experienced in a long time. We love it.

I always wanted to check out Potager. Hip neighborhood and a fun crowd. I struggled with what to order, the menu had few selections that sounded pleasing and within a reasonable price point. The duck salad I order was underwhelming.

Potager is my favorite restaurant in Capital Hill. My husband and I always enjoy their seasonal menus, fresh, organic produce and free range meat options. The casoulet is amazing and is so savory if you are lucky enough to dine there when it is on their menu. Their small plates allow us to be able to try many options and their mussels, which are almost always on the menu are a great staple of any dining experience! Their staff is amazing also; very informative but yet laid back and allow the diner to take the lead on your experience.

Potager used to be one of my favorites, but hte last time I went, it had slipped a little. The service was still good, and I love the lively atmosphere it has, but the portions seem to have gotten smaller, while the prices have climbed. I had a full meal, and was not full when I left.

This restaurant has a nice backyard patio for dining in good weather and the interior has high ceilings with exposed ducts and pipes and lots of windows in the front. The menu changes regularly based on seasonal ingredients. I had the risotto of the day and found it to be satisfactory but not out of this world. My friend had the fish special of the day, Mahimahi, and thought it was very good. The service was nothing to rave about.

Potager is one of many restaurants in Denver touting a local, organic theme. After hearing so many of the ingredients came from places like North Carolina, we threw the notion of local out the door. The setting is great inside and having been the first table to be sat the night we went, our expectations were high. Our server came to our table 5 times in 10 minutes to see if we were ready to order and interrupted our conversation each time by hovering. The dishes were good, but not great for the price. The celery soup was served in a very shallow bowl, enough for 7-8 bites. The fisherman's stew had little to no associated broth...leaving us wondering why it was called a stew. The chicken, while seasoned nicely, was undercooked and wreaked havoc on my digestive system for 16 hrs. It was nearly impossible to get in touch with anyone at the restaurant to alert them to the issue the following day and no one ever returned my phone messages. Overall...the service was not great, the food, while good, was not out of the ordinary, the menu was very typical for this style of restaurant, and the portion/price ratio was very poor.

Potager is by far my favorite restaurant in Denver and that's a lot coming from a veteran foodie like myself!

Working with fresh, local ingredients their chef consistently delivers dishes that wow me and my friends. I was so impressed with this place the first time we ate there that my wife and came back the next night to sample desserts and wines. Even their cappuccinos were top notch and a perfect finish to one of their wonderful meals.

On top of their fabulous food, Potager offers a serene backyard patio to enjoy their wonderful wines and small plate items under Colorado's blissful spring, summer and fall evenings.

I've never called out another reviewer in any my reviews - that is until now. The young lady who gave this place two stars and referred to the food as 'barely edible' is WAY off base. Give it another shot!

Pros: The fresh, local food matching Colorado's seasonal offerings

Cons: Inside cramped on cold weekends

.

The way the chef builds the fresh seasonal ever changing menu is nothing short of a work of art.

As for all around taste, quality, and presentation, this is our favorite place in town. The nicest staff... experts when it comes to recommending a good wine. They all love their jobs.

As someone who likes to cook and more importantly enjoys fresh, often organic, healthy eating without processed foods, this place is heaven. The skill the owner/chef has with combining flavors is mind boggling. I would never think to try some of these combinations and at times am unsure about them until they make it into my mouth!

The cheese souffle if they have one is the best on earth. I actually ordered a second one last visit after our meal and dessert!

Probably the best service that I have had in any restaurant in years. The food was pretty good, and it is nice knowing that it came from local farmers.

I heard this restaurant was really good, but the menu had a terrible selection and the food itself was barely edible, maybe I just don't like American Cuisine, but unless you love it, don't go here.

Craziest thing...I showed up and wanted to remove the panchetta from a pizza to make it vegetarian. Was denied, because it was too hard the first week of a new menu. So...what makes it so hard to NOT place pancetta on a pizza, instead of PLACING it on the pizza...but still charging for it. The restaurant was half empty, and we were offering to pay more profit for a product that is so easy to make...but instead I only purchased a salad and spent only $8 dollars at the restaurant. Guess they have more money and more patrons than they need...or they don't know the v alue of a penny on every product they serve. Won't be visiting any time soon...

One of Colorado's Best and Supports Local Farmers: Rarely if ever will this wonderful place dissapoint. This is the type of business locals take visitors to for a dinner night out. Yes - it's louder with old brick walls exposed and an open kitchen, but that ambience is not your typical LoDo shabby rehab with so -so food. Terri and her crew have been a success in creating a comfortable menu and completely unintimidating list of choices. The service only struggles if super busy - but relax - take time at this place and be gracious. They appreciate the customer without fail. Support our best dining venus in these harder times!

Last night my boyfriend and I decided to celebrate my birthday at Potager ... both he and I were more then impressed with the fresh exciting menu... however the service left both of us with a bad taste in our mouths. When we were there it was before the dinner rush, this would lead one to assume that the service would be amazing throughout our meal, however this was not the case at Potager. There was next to no one anywhere else seated within the restaurant. However there were several servers standing around.... we waited 15 minutes before even seeing our server.... both my boyfriend and I have done food service, so we both understand when it is busy if it takes a server a lil extra time, but this was not the case last night. throughout the whole dining experience it all came down to service as being the one thing that was lacking for both of us... before even deciding to go to Potager we both read the reviews on Citysearch and saw that the service was less then appealling, however it was the food that we were there for. My boyfriend had the grass-fed sirloin while i had the Mahi Mahi...... both dishes were amazing and I would definately enjoy either again, however the lack of service has led both my boyfriend and I to decide that eating at Potager was a one time thing......

Ive read a lot of the bad reviews but ive been there twice and had a very positive experience. The dishes offered are unique and fresh. Atmosphere was great and the service was very good. The price is also reasonable for a restaurant of this quality. Good wine selection. Great patio. Good food for a reasonable price!

This place is the best restaurant in Denver. I have never had anything that was not to die for. All of the staff is fantastic and the backyard patio is beautiful.

The menu at Potager changes on a regular (6 week) basis. This is done by what is at the peak of season. Because of this - everything is fresh and so flavorful.

If it's nice - sit outside in the beautiful backyard. It is truly a gem in the middle of the neighborhood.

This is the best french inspired food in town. Heck - it's one of the best unknown restaurants in town.

I went there for one of my kid's birthday. More than half of the menu was not available. The kids being settled in their chairs, sipping their iced tea was the only reason that kept from leaving when the waiter disclosed that, baiscally, they had run out of food. He offered pizza! So if you like pizza and an ultra-super rude hostess, be Potager's guest!

Potager is one of those unfortunate restaurants where the atmosphere exceeds the product. The setting is a little shabby, a little chic and reminiscent of a French country restaurant. The outside patio is one of the best in the city. The food and the service, however fall well below par. I had been to Potager once before. Some girlfriends took me there for my own little "anti-shower" baby shower. It was an idyllic setting for a group of girls drinking, laughing and having a good time on a special day. But even then I was disappointed. I ordered the cassoulet. It was unappealing, lacking in flavor and showed no sign of being a labor of love (which it should be). My friends all pretty much felt the same. I was hesitant to return, but did so after receiving a gift certificate from a good friend that has raved about the place for years. The tilapia, highly recommended by the server was - in a word - boring. It fell short on seasoning, depth and portion - nothing worse than feeling hungry after a meal. The rib-eye, although cooked perfectly, was not like a rib-eye at all (typically all the fat makes this a very tender steak). It was chewy. Too chewy. And as for desserts, we had the cherry crisp. A crisp, whether it cherry or any other fruit, is so simple and soul satisfying that we all love them. If a restaurant is going to put it on a menu, it better be perfect. It was clear, however, the cherry crisp had been cooked well in advance; its temperature was barely warm but the overall flavor just wasn't there. Our empty plates lingered too long, we waited too long for each drink and started each course before the drinks arrived. Overall, we paid just shy of $200 for this meal (two apps, two mains, two desserts), accompanied by two glasses of wine and two beers. Usually, I have no problem forking out this type of cash if the end result justifies it. Potager, however, just didn't.

For years, Potager has been a breath of fresh air on Denver's dining scene. The place is casual and simple; the food is sophisticated--and always fresh. The service, attentive and efficent. The waitstaff know their food--and their wine. The changing seasonal menu brings anticipation with every visit. We just visited for the introduction of the "second spring menu" which was full of great offerings, including the nettle soup (earthy, savory and delicious), lamb meatballs with spaghetti and pesto, and lobster in a spring pea puree. Everything we had was exciting and well-prepared. Don't miss the chocolate pudding dessert. It's dark- chocolate heaven. I love this place and consider it to be one of Denver's best. And to the gentleman who wrote that he would rather eat his dog's genitals than eat at Potager. I wish he would.

I would certainly rate this spot above average for its exciting uber-local ingredients and seasonal menus. The food, unfortunately, will be beside the point now. Then, after one lovely meal last month my date noticed our 20% tip (left on food and wine) magically had inflated by nearly twenty dollars when he recieved his bank statement. It left such a foul taste in my mouth, that their food will never taste good again.

I have always been a CitySearch voyeur. Reading the review of others was all the involvement I needed. Who needs another username/pw to remember? Potager changed that from me.

Before I dish, let me say that Potager has an outstanding ambience and great service. My problem is the food.

We went to Potager on a weekday and, like we often do, we ordered several small plates and started with the squash soup, which was bland but edible. Our disappointment was tempered by our excitement about what was to come. Surely, it would all triumph over the soup. Little did we know that when we left we would look back on the soup as the best course.

Plate after plate arrived. We could not choke down the mussels, try as we might. The corn dish (cannot recall what it was called) was only luke warm and tasted like it was a leftover from the day before. The lamb (also cold) could have been from a bad kebab stand.

When our well-meaning waitress asked if we would like deert, it was a resounding no. One can only take so much disappointment (especially for a $100+ meal).

In total, we had four awful dishes, so it can't be blamed on one bad dish. I suspect the chef was not working the day we were in, but in a good restaurant that maintained control of its kitchen, we would have never known.

I am afraid Potager has gained its fame on the backs of those who are swayed by a great atmosphere and too many glasses of wine. Food lovers beware!

My first experience at Potager will also be my last. It started out on a bad note when the hostess would not take a reservation. Often restaurants will not take a reservations and that is fine, but when you are a party of ten they always make exceptions--not at Potager. So after a two hour wait and not a single comp'ed glass of wine or appetizer they sat our party. So with our expectations high (it must be good-look at all the people) we eagerly ordered from the average menu. I had the pork and she had the lobstar salad both sounded good and both were not. The price to portion size was a bad joke at best , and most importantly it simply was not good. My pork was over cooked and bland in flavor and lacked excitement. Many at our table ordered the steak and they too gave their dinners poor reviews. The service was average; already told you about the lovely hostess, and the waiter was unable to take our orders out of order (ladies first) as expected as such a high dollar restaurant. We waited forever for the waitor to end the experience and he repeatedly ignored our glances. The atmosphere of the restaurant was unfinished, the walls in the men's room looked like a construction site, as did the walls of the reataurant. With all the money they are taking from people one would think that they could finish off the cosmetics of the place. My favorite part of the experience was leaving. I think that you would be better off ordering fast food and speaking in french than eating at this 'french' establishment, even the French would not approve.

I started with the goat cheese souffle with tomato soup ($12.50) and it was amazing, highly recommended. The bresaola and buffalo mozzarella pizza ($14) was the best pizza I have had in Denver, and I have been to all the highly rated pizza places in town. My wife had Monkfish ($24), which was very good. We were both quite full but split a brownie with strawberries and ice cream that I found average for this caliber restaurant but that she thought was very good. They had lots of wines around $30/bottle and the Jumilla we had was very good. Comparable Denver restaurants are Mizuna and Kevin Taylor, but in my experience Potager is cheaper and has larger portions.

Two buddies and I arrived on a non descript Wednesday night . We sat down at the bar and waited for our drink orders to be taken. 15 minutes later the bartender took our drink order. At the one hour and five minute mark we were seated.

Once seated, our waiter informed us that they were out of three of their eight entrees. He explained that they change their menu every month and that towards the end of the month they run low on certain entrees.
We ordered 3 appetizers to share and 3 entrees (fish, chicken and steak). One of the apps involved a burnt meatball that The Olive Garden would not serve on a dare. The squash soup had a nice autumn taste, but was room temperature.

A little while later the main dishes came. Only the steak and chicken came out. We asked the waiter what was going on. He claimed that he only heard us order 2 entrees. Are you kidding me? When do 3 guys order 2 entrees? Nitz of a waiter goes back to the kitchen and comes back 5 excruciating minutes later. He tells us ?we are out of fish.? Before he could even finish the sentence we informed him that they brought us out a rib eye steak was razor thin and gray! We asked for it medium rare. He ran back to the kitchen and then comes back about 2 minutes later. (?We are out of rib eyes?). He then told us ?unfortunately we only have one entree left, the pizza?) ?Check please, we mumbled with more than slight anguish.?

Not a single apology from our waiter or upper management. Not the offer of free dessert or any gesture that says ?we are having an off night, please forgive us and be our guest in the future.?

Bad attitude, bad service, god forsaken food. Yes, I am a picky NYer but I have found many good restaurants in Denver, from Mizuna to Del Frisco?s, to Luca D Italia. This place is bad with a capital B. I usually give places a 2nd chance, but not this time. I work too hard for my money to give it to these numbnuts.

Two buddies and I arrived on a non descript Wednesday night . We sat down at the bar and waited for our drink orders to be taken. 15 minutes later the bartender took our drink order. At the one hour and five minute mark we were seated.

This place is absolutely lovely. The space is gorgeous with a large curved bar where you can wait for your table (which if you don't go early and on a weekend you will do-so worth it though). The menu changes seasonly so it's always a delight to go back every few months and see what's new. Everything I have tried has been fresh, interesting, and well balanced. This place is not for those who like strictly traditional flavors. If you go, you HAVE to get the chocolate pudding for desert (whether you are full or not). Yes, the portions are on the smaller side, but I've never left hungry. It really is a beautiful place! Oh, and I have never experienced any rudeness or contempt from the staff, but perhaps I've just been lucky?

ate at potager last night. loved everything about it.... the place is casually elegant, our food was delicious, the service was great & the portions were huge. i'm bewildered by some of the negative comments by other people on this web-site.
my friend & i SPLIT 3 courses & left more than stuffed! a duck confit apettizer, the lamb shoulder with hummus & olives (which was unbelievably good) & a cheese course. how some one could leave here hungry is beyond my conception unless they only ordered an appetizer..... i will definitely be a regular here.
they were out of several dishes but in my mind that's a positive sign in a restaurant. it means everything is FRESH DAILY! i.e. no huge walk-in coolers with a month's-worth of slowly spoiling produce.
as an aside - we were the last table there & were not made to feel rushed or neglected in any way which really impressed me.... i know how desperately servers want those last patrons to leave!

We took friends here for a birthday. All four of us agreed it would not be a place we would return to. The pluses first- our food was good. The outdoor patio looked nice. There is also a nice simple atmosphere inside, although it is noisy. The minuses- on a beautiful evening, the hostess could have told us there were tables outside. The restaurant was not very busy, and if it was full back there, we would have waited. There is a definite "attitude" from the staff, which is unpleasant for the most part. Next, most of the menu is appetizer size portions. This works at a "tapas" type restaurant, but not here. Most of the items would not work together as far as flavors go. We came hungry for dinner, so we only had a few things to chose from- (two were sold out.) The waiter explained they don't waste food here, and they were going on vacation. So essentially, they weren't ordering much. This seemed strange to go on vacation in the summer, when their specialty is the use of lots of fresh herbs and produce. O.K., send what you have. The mahi mahi was very fresh, and prepared nicely. The two people in our party that each ordered two small portions left hungry. This was after dessert. Unfortunately, the service was so slow that at times all of us were looking around trying to figure out where our server disappeared to. We finished half our meal with nothing to drink. Our server dumped the dessert menu on our table, (we're still thirsty), and twenty minutes later I had to go to the open kitchen area and ask if we can place the order. I gave it two stars because the food tasted good. The bill for four came to around $260 with tip. We eat out often, this was expensive for what we had.

As you can see people either love or hate this place. I'm kind of in the middle myself. I like the fact that it's a locally owned neighborhood place - not some slick chain. I like the philosophy of the chef/owner which is one of sourcing and serving only the best local ingredients. I have had some very delightful meals there especially when the weather is nice and you can sit out back on the patio. What I don't like: very small portions at very large prices, the noise (you'll be lucky if you can carry on a conversation - hence the more pleasant patio experience), and the fact that if you're over 45 you'll feel like a relic. The staff and crowd are too, too young and chic. I think there are better restaurants for the money in Denver.

My wife, a friend, and I went there on May 9. We got there at 5:25 pm, the small sign said they open at 5:30, and the door was locked. As we waited, we saw that maybe six staff members were gathered at the bar, sampling wines. They saw us standing there waiting but made no acknowledgement. Once it got to a few minutes past 5:30 and the door was still locked, with the employees still standing around drinking wine, we left. I've never eaten there and will never return, as they demonstrated their complete contempt for the customer, in my opinion.

I had to write this review in response to the negative review showing up under Potager because I disagree. Potager is one of the best restaurants in Denver. The wait can be long and they may run out of certain dishes because everything is fresh. The flavors are simple. They use a few ingredients and it is about tasting those individual ingredients. Don't expect to be overpowered by sauces or spices, so may not be for everyone. I have dined at the restaurant many times and highly recommend it.

No reservations are allowed, a minimum 1 hour wait on Saturday night should be expected. No parking, bohemian crowd and limited seating. Excellent waitstaff and service; however, the food is mediocre at BEST and the prices are out of line for the quality and quantity of food served. The "famous" wilted greens were okay, but nothing special. The gnocci with bolognese was more a huge disappointment- the gnocchi was nice, but the bolognese sauce was bizarre. It looked like they had simply pan cooked some hamburger meat and sprinkled it onto the gnocchi... As far as entrees, the chicken I ordered was tasteless (as in boiled chicken) and the special fish stew was primarily filled with potatoes. I would not recommend this restaurant - it has a 4 star price tag on 1 star food...

I'm writing this review because I've moved away from Denver and I miss Potager terribly! I lived in the neighborhood for two years and it was a joy to be able to walk to this gem of a restaurant any time. The food was consistently delicious, service always friendly, professional and unintrusive. I trusted their chef so much that I came to intentionally order menu items that sounded the most strange to me - just to see how she would make them delicious, and she did, without fail. It's possible I'm obsessed, but I receive their menus by mail now and enjoy simply reading them, looking forward to the next time I will be in town for a meal. I appreciate their emphasis on locally produced, artesanal, seasonal ingredients - and they've always made great wine recommendations. Obviously, highly recommended. Note however that the ambiance is not "fancy" or formal - I'd describe it as classy and casual.

This is my favorite dinner spot in Denver. I have always received great service and I am always greeted upon entering the establishment. Since I work in the hospitality industry I find great customer service is half the battle! The food is always amazing and the atmosphere always seems to be on fire with electricity and enthusiasm. The chef uses local and seasonal items to incorporate in the food prepared. Attention to each flavor on your plate is evident here. The chef and kitchen staff must love what they do! Funny, I've never thought of any of the plate sizes "small" as past reviewers have mentioned. Although I have moved away (Phoenix is home now), I still recommend this place to friends travelling to Denver. If the pastry chef still makes pots de creme (warm chocolate custard....yummmm!) don't miss out!

This restaurant is a Jewel on the Denver dining scene. Everything about the dining is refreshingly different, wonderfully prepared, and screams gourmet cooking. It's true that the portions aren't super sized but quality trumps quantity at this comfortable, enjoyable establishment perfect for dining with friends or a loved one. If you get a chance to try either the chicken or pork loin, you will wonder how they do it. Both dishes are simply spectacular and on par with the finest eateries in the country. If you are looking for the corporate restaurant chain experience, this place is not for you. If you love gourmet cooking, served in a rustic, open kitchen environment full of charm and character....look no further.. this is one of Denver's very best.

The food tastes fine and the cuisine is definitely a bit different than in other restaurants. But, and this is a big but - the portions are tiny and the prices are high. No valet parking is available and parking on the street is tight on the weekend
But the atmosphere is pleasant and the service is wonderful!

I tend to recommend this place because, playing the odds I guess, it's bound to be ok. I do seem to recall that most of my food was good and the space was kind of cool, though I did ask for part of my meal to be sent back for more heating. I agree that this kind of thing is not to be expected from a place with such a price and style. I would say it's about as good as Le Central or Z Cuisine - none of which is outstanding, but still definitely enjoyable and interesting. Seems in Denver there may be only a handful of truly excellent restaurants in general; maybe the real talent tends to land elsewhere? Regardless, you'll probably be non-plused if you're coming from a S.F. or N.Y. or Paris, but, this place is a little above average in my experience in Denver if you don't mind small-ish portions for larg-ish prices, while potentially spending some time parking and waiting for a table.

Potager has the best food in Denver, created and served by non-pretentious folks. Karen, the wine buyer, is excellent and has lots of fun picks. The food is always interesting and changing - new menu every 5 weeks or so (Corn menu coming this week!). You can choose from many small plates or go for the entree size plates. Wait staff is excellent and has been there for a long time - as long as we've been going there (since Potager opened!).

Don't be swayed by some of the negative reviews - go and find out for yourself!

Potager never disappoints. The menu changes seasonally, the food is always nothing short of excellent, the service is head and shoulders above anything else in Denver, the wine list is great... I discovered Potager five years ago, and have been there many times since. It is my favorite restaurant in Denver, bar none.

Excellent place for a romantic dinner, and atmosphere is a plus. But my entree was cold, and while they accomodated and reheated it, it still didn't taste right. This isn't the quality of food that I'd expect while "fine dining."

Don't be deterred by the one person's review - this place is amazing. I just moved to Denver a few months ago, and after living in great food towns like Seattle and SanFran, was pleased to find a calibre restaurant like this. It has become a mainstay for me - great food, wine, service.

What a disappointment!!! High prices, skimpy portions, creativity run amok! Tasteless pasta, mussels in a sauce that tasted like saurkraut, several raviolis that would not satisfy a chikd, arugula salad carelessly prepared and only small appetizer size. If it were not for the bread, we would have walked away hungry and a $100 lighter. The restaurant space was attractive and we thought we were in for a Berkeley gourmet experience. I think I will dine at Whole Foods the next time I am in Denver and save my money for a real restaurant!

While some select dishes were really wonderful, others were incredibly mediocre. For the money and the wait (nearly one hour), one would expect much better. Furthermore the service was really spotty and the wines we tried were similarly mediocre. We really wanted to support a place like this which supports local farming, but it really was just not all that good.
The preceding was written by my wife - much the diplomat. Let me add that my pork
was a bit of a salt lick and my tart crust was straight out of betty-crocker. Other than that things tended towards OK.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was wonderful, I loved it the minute I set foot in the door. However, the menu was a bit disapointing. Most of the menu consisted of appitezers that were quite pricy with such small portions. As delicious as they were, with portions that small and the price so high I will most likely be back to sip wine on the patio on a Saturday afternoon.

The interior is well designed, minimal but solid. The food and service are just as smart. Some diners come in t-shirts; Ive also seen a full-length fur. Everyone is made comfortable and gets great food.

The decor at Potager suggests a starving artist cooks here, and his art is excellent cuisine. The incongruity between the ambiance (very casual) with the food (very sophisticated) is actually refreshing. No pretension here, just great dishes served by friendly, professional, down to earth people. The menu changes often but we started with a lemon souffle with crab sauce (a journey of texture and flavor) and a simple mushroom spinach salad with sauteed salami (wonderful). Our entrees were Asian spiced short ribs (packed with layers of flavor) and Cassoulet that takes eight hour to prepare and contains lamb, sausage, ham and duck confit. The wine list is also eclectic, you'll find few recognizable labels. Ask the staff or try your luck, you won't be disappointed. For dessert the apple crisp with buttermilk ice cream was a tasty end to the meal. No reservations available so arrive early for immediate seating.

The appetizers on the menu are surprisingly different to other restaurants. We tried the pear and figs - fantastic. For entrees we tried the Halibut fish special and the Pork Chop. The haibut was well received while the Pork Chop itself was tasty, the winners on the plate are the squash and the salad.
For desert, we ordered the pumpkin pie (jammy!) and the chocolate mouse (very disappointing & hard to eat). The waiter's response and handling of the disappointing chocolate mouse was disappointing and may have an impact on our decision to come back.
