This is just one of those places that you have to have fun, because this place is fun, nothing fancy about it, just fun and a lot of booze.

This is one of the best places to go and treat someone special. They have great food in here that are a little pricey but it will be worth it.

I LOVED the live music and the ambience was nice. The menu we were given was the winter menu they were phasing out before beginning their spring menu.

I ordered a filet mignon. It was large, over 8 oz and wasn't anything like something you would have at a high-end steakhouse. My friends ordered a ravioli and duck dish. Both were delicious. Our server was great and I would definitely come back again for a weekend night. We dressed in semi-formal attire.

They also have a bar downstairs if you aren't in the mood to move around much after dinner.

Wow! 1515 was both elegant and quite possibly the best food in Denver. You know the kind of dinning experience you tell your buddies about for the next few weeks. In addition the staff was both kind and attentive. Gene, the owner I believe, explained how each dish was prepared using new innovative techniques. I found this fascinating. 1515 is a winner and I will surely return to see what else they have in store shortly.

My boyfriend and I dined at 1515 for dinner last month. It was the first time either of us had been inside the restaurant. We were impressed by the atmosphere. Though there were plenty people in the restaurant, we could still have a quiet conversation. Our server was not only incredibly attentive, but also patient with my indecisiveness and very knowledgeable about the food. He explained how the chef uses different techniques to create a variety of tastes and textures so we decided to try several things. We had the compressed tomato and mozzarella dish as well as the cheese plate and shrimp vegetable salad. All were unique and flavorful but my favorite was the cheese plate! The cheeses were served with fresh fruit as well as some of the most delicious honey I've ever tasted. For our main courses we had the sous vide lamb and the NY strip. Both cuts of meat were cooked perfectly to order and the flavors and textures melted in our mouths. The mint and hazelnut powder with my dish were both delicious and intriguing. For dessert we had 3 kinds of chocolate, which was the crowning jewel of our dinner. The white chocolate caviar was so inventive and delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and definitely plan to return.

Lets start with the positives... The dessert was excellent, and my steak was cooked perfectly. The manager was very attentive (sometimes too attentive). Other than that the experience was a bust... burned crab cakes, under cooked salmon (which tasted like it was previously frozen) , over dressed salad, cold and oily pomme frittes, and even the bread on the table, though warm, seemed like a brown and serve loaf from the store. We came for lunch so perhaps the dinner crew is better.

We viewed the menu online and immediately reserved. Wildly innovative cooking using modern techniques like molecular and sous-vide. We went in a group of five, so that we could try as many dishes as possible. All 3 versions of duck in "Duck Three Ways" were bursting with rich flavor, the Beef Carpaccio with Lobster Tempura and Truffles was truly to die for, the Wagyu Beef you cook on a stone was of the best quality and what a fun presentation! The desserts were incredible and creative as well (deconstructed strawberry shortcake, milk chocolate cotton candy!) Enormous and reasonably priced wine list. Gene Tang is a wonderful host - personable, knowledgable.

A perfect experience.

My husband and I went on Friday night for drinks and a quick bite at the bar for a trial run before we committed to a full meal in the dining room. The bartender Paul, was warm and inviting and made a Sangria Martini that will make you slap your mama! We settled in and order a couple of appetizers, (Wagyu Beef & Procuitto/Melon/Handmade Mozz/18yr Balsamic) AMAZING!!! Gene Tang, the owner came over and chatted about the dishes, and insisted we try the Carpaccio. Now, my husband likes his meat well-done, but he tucked into this plate and loved it! After speaking with Mr. Tang at length about the restaurant, it is clearly apparent he loves and respects his chef. The Scallops (me), Duck Salad (husband) was the best food we have eaten since moving to Denver. Dessert did not disappoint, (cotton candy anyone?) We left 2 1/2 hrs later vowing to be back in the dining room soon. This is a place for people who are truly interested in eating innovative and tasty food. It is a restaurant that can be as expensive or inexpensive as you want.

This was without a doubt the best meal I have ever had. The food was truly amazing on every level. The presentation was a feast for the eyes, and the taste was unbelievable. They combined flavors in ways that brought out the best in the food and everything was cooked and served to perfection. The wait staff was wonderful and attentive without being intrusive. Without a doubt this is one of the best, if not THE best restaurant in Denver.

i have been to restaurant 1515 a hundred times for drinks, and usually i know the bartenders by first name, they are social and exited to see me. last experience, this was not the case. they had a new bartender named mechelle who happened to be more concerned with ignoring me than serving me. I ordered the 1515 burger like i have a hundred times, and it was excellent as always. i come in with pretty large groups usually, this time i didnt thank god. She kept wandering off to the empty side of the bar instead of serving me at all. i would have to approach her for every drink refill. she seemed soo annoyed at having to be there that i became annoyed, and when i addressed her she was rude and despondite so i finished my food and left. typically i would have 4 or 5 drinks, but i could barely squeeze two out of her and i was getting ignored. sad this happens, i usually love to chat with thier other help. this time, not soo much. That is enough complaining about one indavisual, the food is quite excellent and the drink specials are awesome, this is usually my favorite spot. will definetly be back but if i see mechelle behind the bar, i may think twice about going in.

This is the best restaurant we have been to in Denver. Customer service is excellent, with the owner Gene actively involved with the entire dining experience, and personally greeting customers. Food was perfect in all respects...taste, temperature, seasoning, and presentation. Very nice atmosphere. Also, they accomodated our last-minute reservation for 2 without any waiting time. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a great high-end dining experience.

Our waiter greeted us promptly and was well-informed about the menu, including specials, and the wine list. After presenting and pouring our bottle, he refilled our glasses promptly but discreetly throughout the night. He was accomodating and amusing when we asked him questions, but respectful and discreet while we were talking - which, for me, is critical for servers to understand. Additionally, the owner himself greeted us after our first course to ask how everything was.

The food reflects both culinary creativity and respect for the ingredients. The service is the best I've EVER had.

We've been to 1515 Restaurant twice and both times it's been a wonderful experience! The menu, the wine list and the service are all top notch. Gene Tang and his staff work hard to make sure you are pleased with every aspect of your visit. I highly recommend this establishment to everyone!

The hotel recommended this place and billed the menu as Americana. There was nothing American about the menu, they didn't even have a chicken option. Everything was over thought with far too much effort put into making it fancy. There were five of us in our dinner party and I was the only one whose dinner was edible. That was because I told them to leave the c**p off and just give me a steak.

They even had the nerve to ruin perfectly good chocolate by mixing it with foie gras, Sacrilege I tell you!!!!

I stopped by 1515 restaurant this week for lunch after hearing great things from a friend, and it turned out to be a fantastic recommendation. Our server suggested that I order the kobe burger with a side of black truffle mayonnaise, which turned out to be the best burger I have ever had. I'm currently on a low carb diet, so I ordered the burger without a bun; however, the meat was so succulent that I forgot entirely that I was missing out on the bun. The burger was topped with pancetta and brie cheese, which were excellent alternatives to the standard bacon and american cheese. The black truffle mayonnaise was absolutely delicious. My wife had the seared salmon, which turned out to be delicious as well. Overall, the service was perfect, and the manager (cindy?) was very friendly. My wife and I will certainly return again.

I have lived in Denver for a while and I was quite impressed and surprised by 1515 as this was my first visit. We went with the tasting menu (with wine pairings) and could not have been happier with every course. The service was not only thorough, but our waiter was quite knowledgeable about every course. Not just with the standard presentation that is to be expected with a tasting menu, but with follow up questions we had as well. The wine parings were creative and well done. I would put the food on par with some of the best meals I have had: creative, well presented, and some amazing combinations of flavor and texture. I would recommend 1515 to anyone and will certainly return again.

As most of you know, it is Restaurant Week in Denver, and it is my favorite week of the year! While the economy may have lowered our moods and our disposable income, this is the time that we can celebrate the fine cuisine that Denver has to offer and keep a bit of money in hand. It appears that Denverites are taking advantage of the amazing meals offered around town this week for only $52.80 for two ($26.40 for one). I have had a difficult time getting reservations at many restaurants. I was, however, fortunate enough to dine at a place I didn't even know existed until tonight. It is called 1515 and it is on Market and 15th in downtown Denver. The bar is on the ground level and one only needs to go upstairs to get to the dining room. The ambiance is lovely--urban chic, and the food is to die for, eclectic contemporary American cuisine! We had five people serving us all evening including the owner, Gene Tang, and the manager, Cynthia Aceves. The staff is some of the best I've found in this town and the menu for Restaurant Week is surprising and delicious. The restaurant's normal fare is even more so with Chef's Choice prix fixe, 5 or 7 course meals, with or without wine pairings, for cheaper than you could imagine. Oh, and have I mentioned the food is amazing? They even offer a wine pairing with the $52.80 menu with each course for only $15 more!
I am urging my friends to take advantage of Restaurant Week, which has been extended for an additional week at many of the restaurants including 1515. Times are tough in this industry and it would be a shame to lose such fantastic dining establishments such as this because of poor attendance due to the economy. This slump will be over in time and I hope we will be relatively unscathed her in Denver by still having our great restaurants in tact. Take advantage of Restaurant Week, try new places, return to the ones you love, and be sure to go to 1515 for a truly rewarding evening of fine dining. Let's keep Denver tasty!

1515 was a great dining experience. It is a great place for a date! The service was attentive and friendly. I would definitely recommend getting the chef's tasting menu. We did the 5 course meal which had a great sampling of the chef's creations. The chef trained in Paris and also worked at Everest in Chicago. The food was fresh and creative with great flavors. I would recommend this restaurant!

Parking is validated if you park in the lot just past Qdoba on Market!

Four of us tried 1515 for the first time earlier this week. We were celebrating our friend's birthday, so we splurged and enjoyed the five-course chef tasting menu with the wine pairing. All I can say is "FABULOUS!" From start to finish, each course was better than the last. The unusual flavor combinations were surprising and felt like fireworks exploding in your mouth! The dishes were well balanced and the portions were just right - there was enough to enjoy the outstanding flavors but we did not leave the restaurant feeling "stuffed" at all. The service was second-to-none as well - our head waiter (Matthew) was very pleasant and definitely knowledgeable about the food. He took our "special requests" without a second thought and passed them along to the chef. Other members of the staff also pitched in to offer seamless service. We certainly did not want for anything throughout the meal. I would definitely recommend 1515 as a place to go for a special occasion. I'm looking forward to going back and trying something from the "regular" menu - I'm sure I will not be disappointed!

1515 was an incredibly enjoyable dining experience for our anniversary with some of the most elegant food preparation and competent wait staff in Denver.

We began with a terrific first course of asparagus with black truffles. The timing of food and beverages was perfect. Moments after finishing the first course a second round of drinks appeared followed by our main courses. The wife had a fresh and creative halibut dish with a basil reduction topped with crispy angel hair potatoes. I chose the buffalo strip with gnocchi, english peas, and mushrooms. Both dishes were culinary delights and wonderfully presented. We competed the meal with a creative "3 Cheese" cheesecake with lemon curd and fresh blueberries.

There are new restaurants coming and going in Denver all the time. 1515 has been right off Market and the 16th street mall for 10 years and somehow we had missed it. It hits all the marks for an elegant meal in a classy but comfortable setting.

If you are looking for a spectacular meal without the pretense I can not think of a better place that 1515.

All I can say is wow! This was my first trip to 1515 and I would highly recommend it to anyone. My girlfriend and I had the 5 course chef's recommendation with wine pairing and it was an absolute adventure. If you have a wide variety of tastes I would definitely recommend this choice. Since it's the chef's choice, you never know what the next course is, so it's actually an exciting meal. It is quite pricey at $115 per person, but it was a 2 hour experience I will never forget. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and open to critique on the wine pairings. Although it's a little too expensive for a common dinner, it should definitely be experienced for special occasions.

All I can say is wow! This was my first trip to 1515 and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Pros: Excellent food, service, and knowledge

Cons: Expensive

I had reservations for a large (12) group of friends for dinner and found out two days before that the restaurant we were going to had closed down. I had to scramble to find a restaurant that could accomodate us. 1515 came up in my search and was one of the few places that could get us all in.

I now know why. The menu was limited, the food was quite blah and in some cases inedible and the service was less than friendly. The evening wasn't bad, it just wasn't good. I had walked past this restaurant for years and had never been tempted to go in. After finally dining there, I won't be tempted to return.

Overall - not the dining experience we had hoped for.

When you peek your head in the door, don't let the ground-floor bar fool you: upstairs you will find a truly "fine dining" experience. We have been to 1515 twice now, and cannot say enough good things about it. We have (both times) had the Chef's Choice 5-course menu, with the wine pairing. (There is also a 7-course Chef Choice option.) We have loved every morsel of food! The greens are fresh (some of them are even grown on site), the meats are perfectly cooked, the fish is fresh, the wines are excellent, and the desserts are heavenly. The chef was even willing to cater to a difficult request: one of our party was "allergic" to garlic. Despite this obvious hurdle, the chef served up 5-star food that was 2nd-to-none. The service is top notch. The food presentations are beautiful. We have been to other "5-star" restaurants in the area, and our opinion is that 1515 has MUCH better food, at comparitively lower prices. Of course, the view is not going to be as stunning as the Flagstaff house, but your palate and your stomach will be MUCH more satisfied when you leave (as will your checkbook balance).

Pros: food taste & quality, service, wine list, presentation

Cons: ? (I suppose if you need a table with Flatiron views, you're going to be disappointed)

Fine Dining at it's best, located in the heart of Lodo. Great service, and the food has always been outstanding. Parking difficult. It is smaller place but you will enjoy it.

After eating our way around Denver last fall, my husband and I chose 1515 for the rehearsal dinner before our son's wedding on Memorial Day weekend. What a great decision that was! We knew the food would be fabulous, and it was. With more than 50 people in attendance, the service was flawless--swift, unobtrusive, precise. Gene Tang's wine choices had the wine lovers among us sighing with pleasure. We're from Chicago and we know great restaurants. 1515 is top quality, from the vegetable crudites sushi to the free-form chocolate creme brulee. And a great value, to boot!

We visited this restaurant for the first time last night and it was amazing! The sweatbreads appetizer and dandelion salad were phenomenal and our entrees were delicious. We did happen to go a quiet night, so the atmosphere was very pleasant. Our server was incredibly attentive and the manager came by our table a few times to check on us. Whenever we had questions, they were very prompt with finding the answer. I will say that having the bar as the scene that greets you when you enter may throw you off, there was also a very unpleasant oder in the bar area as we walked through, but once we were in the restaurant upstairs, everything was fine. We will definitely go back again!

Cons: entering through the bar, smell in the bar

I don't know what this other reviewer is refering to but my family and I had a wonderful time with the attentive staff and the above average choices on the buffet. Breakfast choices were numerous including awesome fruit stuffed french toast, mushroom quiche, eggs benidict station, and some kind of an asparagus omelette. Previous reviewer said there was only one salad but we found three: pasta, fruit and green. All the food was the right temperature as the staff was feverishly refilling the buffet as fast as they could to keep up with the huge crowds. Big bonus was the raw bar where they had huge oysters, some shrimp and crab claws; cocktail sauce was bit spicy though. We were amazed to find such a different spin on your typical buffet with interesting items you wouldn't otherwise see at your typical buffet. We really liked the soup and eggs benidict station, I went back twice for the lobster hollandaze. We will definatley check them out for dinner.

Pros: Interesting unique breakfast items, amazing flavors

Cons: Really busy, staff seemed rushed

My family and I have been to over 20 restaurants in Colorado featuring a mother's day buffet brunch and this was the worst yet!! We were shocked to find a small, and limited buffet featuring a carving station with 2 very dry and cold meats, 1 salad, no chicken dishes or breakfast dishes other then french toast, and 3 desserts. On our first trip to the buffet we were shocked to find that all the hot food was cold and the cold food was hot. We alerted the manager who said he would check on the food but nothing got better. The price was $30/person for a quick 45 minute brunch of leaving hungry and angry. This restaurant has nothing to offer to individuals looking for a warm and delicious meal. Staff was unconcerned with complaints and basically brushes you off. We will never go back (lunch, dinner, etc) and am very unhappy this restaurant ruined that mother?s day!

The food here was very good, the service was a little whacky. But I expect that in Denver, its the norm and I've become accustomed to be greeted and addressed as "guy" or "dude". It doesn't matter if I'm at Morton's or Village Inn the wait staff rarely has any grace of formal training. We tried the foie gras, the duck liver mousse and lamb chops. All were excellent but the foie gras really stood out, the combination of the buckwheat waffles and foie gras was a very tasty experience. Also refreshing was the smallish portion size, far too many restaurants in Denver take the chain restaurant approach and serve platter sized entrees. Which is annoying, I don't need to be served a 5000 calorie meal to feel satisfied. Anyway, this place has good eats, it's charming inside and it's affordable.

The negative reviews about the service are absolutely true. I read these before going and warned my husband. We said we'd go anyway, for our anniversary. My husband made a reservation and requested a nice table as it was our anniversary.
When the hostess seated us there were 4 tables going, and she seats us in a booth right next to where the servers enter their orders on the computer, Umm, no, I dont think so. Romantic? Hardly. That was service issue #1. We asked for another table, no problem-but we shouldn't have had to ask.
Our server comes over with amenu and states there are no specials that evening. Ok. No drink menu was offered. We finally got it and we see that Friday nights are 5 dollar well Martinis. There are no prices listed for any of the drinks on the menu.-which is very lame. We order Martinis specifically ordering WELL martinis. There are drink specials but she never mentioned it. We get bread at the table which they continued to refill. They served it with balsamic and olive oil. Still, it tasted good.
We ordered the scallops which had a great sauce-unfortunately they were undercooked in the center. We told the server after she asked us how it was and she said she would tell the chef. My husband had eated one of them already before we had a chance to send it back.Had they been cooked correctly they would have been 5 stars.
The soup with shaved fennel on top was outstanding.
I had salmon for my entree and that was out of this world delicious.
My husband had the sea bass and I didnt care for it.The fish was overladen with cumin. When we get the check we were charged full price for martinis which they then deducted. We questioned that and she said thats just for the bar. Well, if you gave us the wrong menu,you still should honor it. In general, our server seemed ignorant about the items on the menu and what the ingredients were. Did they pick her up off the street? Fine tune the service and its a 4 star restaurant.

I went to 1515 Market for a working group lunch and boy, we were ALL disappointed with the service. The owner seated us, introduced us to the waiter, gave suggestions, mostly primping his restaurant, really, and was gone. Our iced tea came, but took forever to get refills. One person in the group had no ice in her glass and waited for 15 minutes before she got ice and by that time, her tea was gone, and was not refilled. We waited for 45 minutes to get our food, and at 35 minutes into the wait, were able to flag down the waiter to ask how much longer it would be (items ordered: Kobe beef burger, 2 shrimp club sandwiches, 1 salmon entree and 1 chicken entree--were they massaging the cow for 1/2 hr, fishing in the Platte River for the shrimp & salmon, and running after a chicken??) Keep in mind, we were the first patrons in the restaurant and our party only had 5 people. After, only two more tables were seated, one was a couple, the other, a party of 4. The food was good, but not worth a 45 minute wait. And, as far as a "to-go" box, the waiter came by TWICE indicating the box will be brought over. How long does it take to get a box? AND, to top it off, the owner DID finally return to our table with a message: "Next time if you're in a hurry, we do have menus you can look at and order ahead." A person in our group made it known that "if we would have known that we would be waiting for 45 minutes to get our food, we would have done that"

Having lived in Denver for many years I've had the opportunity to dine at many great establishments and I must say that 1515 Market is truly one of the best! The wine list rivals any you will find in Denver and the service is unparalleled. The menu offers a variety of tasty dishes and the presentation is remarkable. I can't say enough wonderful things about this restaurant and I would highly recommend dining at this establishment.

I wanted to make my roommate's birthday very special! Not only with the company of 16 other friends, but I wanted her to feel special on her day! So, I made a reservation for the 18 of us, and we got more than we expected! Not only is the restaurant set up wonderfuly and beautifully, but the entertainment of live music on the second floor and the elegance displayed at our table was amazing! Compliments to the chef!! The food was so well prepared and presented! I definitely recommend this restuarant for anyone looking for a fabulous meal and wonderful environment!

I had been to 1515 a few years ago and had a great experience, so I thought it would be a good "new" place to take my husband. The food was good, but the service was a little slow. Don't know if we'll rush back, but we will try them again.

I went into 1515 with high expectations, given the reviews, and was quite dissapointed in the service. We were first put at a table where the air conditioning blew directly on us, when I asked to be reseated I was told no. After my drink was finished, the waiter showed up three times without ever asking me if I would like another, I had to ask. The food was good, but when I got my Salmon there was still aluminum foil attached to it, as if they had rushed it out of the kitchen. And to top everything off, once a group of about 20 arrived, it took 30 minutes to get our dessert and another 15 to get a check. I will never go back to this restaurant, nor would I recommend it to anyone. The food is good, the service is the worst I have ever had for $75 a plate!

My Wife and I moved from Los Angeles and so, have been trying Denvers restuarant and bar scene. I have to say that overall we have been VERY impressed. 1515 was so well reviewed that we simply had to try it and it was our first major let-down. When we first walked into the bar area - I walked straight back out to check the address!! This looked like $2 beer bar with no sign indicating the restaurant was upstairs - should have taken this as a hint and left. The decor is sparse to say the very least (not at all like the photos - maybe the had to sell some paintings)!! Menu is VERY limited and we were hard put to find something that sounded appetizing (by this stage my Wife had suggested we just leave). We could only find a salad as appetizer (although that was in fairness well made). We ordered 2 glasses of different wine from the wine list and were brought one bottle and told they were looking for the other. We explained we wanted glasses (anyone know a couple that orders a bottle each to start)!! After 30 minutes we still had only one glass. Service was vague and indifferent. The buffalo entree was way too complex and rather stomach turning. $150 for two people and a very unpleasant experience. Denver has much better at this level.

(Please note that this review concerns only the restaurant, the bar may well be fantastic?but I?m not going to try it out)
The food is truly the only redeeming quality of our experience at the 1515; though dessert should be sought elsewhere. But to be fair, good food isn?t too hard to come by at $20 to $30 a plate and is by no means redeeming enough to make the visit, even if you live next door. The service was not only poor, but seemed genuinely unconcerned about it. The atmosphere was more similar to that of a drunken tavern than a classy resto. And to top it off, weak drinks! For your own sake, go somewhere else.

I recently ate dinner at 1515 with my new fiance'. After having a wonderful dinner, wine and appetizers the owner came by our table to check on us and see how we enjoyed our meal. During the chat he asked why we were visiting Denver from Kansas City and we told him we had gotten engaged in Estes Park and came to Denver for some relaxation and to tour the city. He congratulated us and sent a very delicious dessert to our table. He could not have been any nicer to us. We'll always remember that as a true highlight of our trip. This place is a must if you love wine, all while enjoying a great atmosphere of local flavor. Two thumbs up! Best Dessert: Peanut Butter ?Sprayed? Chocolate Mousse

I recently took my girlfriend to 1515 for my birthday and I wasn't disapointed. The winelist was absolutely amazing, they had some of my favorite wines. I especialy liked the foie gra it is very hard to find anywhere and it melts in your mouth. I had the buffalo hanging tenderloin and my girlfriend had the NY steak. Both were excelent and had very unique flavors. I can say that I recomend this restaurant to anyone looking very a different and satisfying dining experience.

We are a couple in our early thirties that go out to dinner quite often in the downtown/highlands/capital hill area. The only indication of fine dining here are the white tableclothes. The service was horrendous; when the server finally did arrive to our table and we requested a wine list, she looked for about ten minutes then returned informing us she could not even find us a wine list even though the restaurant was only about 25% full. The appetizers of crab cake and relleno arrived cold when they should have been hot, both appetizers drenched in the same orange cream sauce. The chicken adobo was flavorless and dull, seemed like a few very small pieces of roasted chicken from the grocery store thrown on top of some yellow lentils. Service, food and wine were horrendous.

I can honestly say the Buffalo steak at 1515 was one of the most exquisite things I have ever eaten. Every bite just melts in your mouth. I don't know how they do it! I would love to try other things on their menu because so much looks delicious, but I'm quite sure that every time I go back I will be unable to pass up the Buffalo. Every friend/family member that comes to visit me in Denver will be coming here to try the buffalo!!! You need to go! You won't regret it. And sit upstairs- it's so cute! And Gene, the owner, is AWESOME! Ask him to recommend a good bottle of wine for you... he's right every time!

I can honestly say the Buffalo steak at 1515 was one of the most exquisite things I have ever eaten. Every bite just melts in your mouth. I don't know how they do it!

Amy and I took my folks to 1515 on Saturday night. We showed up at 6pm. The bar was empty. The upstairs - where the restaurant is - was about half full and dominated by a big party. The big party came in just before us so the service

I cannot honestly comment on the menu for the restaurant, because I have only have the Kobe burger I go. Why you might ask do I limit myself to this one item. Well, I was tipped off by the Rocky Mountain News that it was the best hamburger
