The setting was great. You eat inside of some old mega sized vaults. It's an old bank. The atmosphere is great. The food was excellent. Service was really good.

My husband and I just ate here last night. We got the price-fix menu and it was amazing. The calamari appetizer was so flavorful, the caesar salad was tasty and the tournados oscar was melt in your mouth delicious. I chose the creme brulee for dessert and it was the best tasting creme brulee I've ever had. Our server was... More

The restaurant is an old bank with huge vault door that are really unique. Food was awesome!! Serves was slow, it took over two hours for two of us to dine here! The restaurant didn't seem super busy but everything took forever.

It was my other half's birthday and I asked him where he wanted to go for dinner. He thought about it awhile and remembered how much he enjoyed dinner at The Broker a few years back. It is located in downtown Denver in an old bank. I called and a very friendly man answered and got us all set up.... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant is stunning and worth seeing. Loved the history and the vault. The hostess staff was very friendly all throughout the night.

I'm a little shocked that people complain about this restaurant because it's "old". Well, that's sorta the point. A lot of history in that building and restaurant, so neat. The point of going here is for the old school elegance. My husband and I dined using the $89 special that you can either purchase in advance on Groupon, or you... More

The Broker Restaurant is one of the oldest dining institutions in Denver. Located in the basement of what was once the Denver National Bank Building, this restaurant has become an international destination for old world dining. Prepare to indulge in a huge bowl of peel and eat Gulf shrimp that comes with every dinner entree. They are still famous for their elegant private dining and business dinners. Make sure to ask to tour the old vault and numerous private dining rooms.
