Mother's Day brunch...weird experience. Overpriced for what it was, and food was "eh". Maybe they were out of sync because of Mother's Day, but didn't meet the standard other reviews suggested. The weird part was the waitstaff. I get it's a high end place and usually don't get a lit if kids, but what else would they expect in Mother's... More

Don't let the fact that this is part of a hotel steer you away. Panzer is a terrific restaurant with a great interior, and even better food and a very good wine list. I highly recommend the grilled romaine salad and the pasta bolognese. Flavorful and filling without weighing you down. Attentive service as well. I will be back :-D

We received good service and recommendations. The service rating could have been better except for serving a very poor expresso. The server and/or the bartender should have been trained to notice no crema on the espresso and drawn another. From my experience, no crema on an espresso is an immediate indication something is not correct. It looked and tasted like... More

Had dessert and drinks on a Saturday night, great atmosphere and nice dessert menu. Located in the Hotel Monaco which we had a great stay at. We'd go again.

We had a lovely Italian dinner while staying in Denver. The pasta is house-made and was excellent. They have an eclectic wine list. The service was attentive and friendly. We were staying at the hotel, and also enjoyed the breakfast.

Daughter was sat while I was parking car. Was relegated to a not so nice table in the back despite many other tables available in front. We had an early reservation. Felt she had been profiled based on her age. Wait staff not very attentive. Waiter leaned on back wall while discussing menu - totally unprofessional, even in the eyes... More

The food is very good. Though when ordering menu description is too complex. Menu should be easier to read and understand. I loved the roasted brussell sprouts and homemade bread was delicious. I would like to see more pasta dishes on menu.

Panzano a is a modern take on Italian food that is outstanding. Sitting at the chefs counter gives you a feeling for all the food they serve and the care they take it getting out something delicious and pleasing to the eye.
