We picked this restaurant because of its proximity to the Paramount before our Bill Engvall comedy show. It was perfect in every way. Greeted immediately, nice table in the back. Our waiter was attentive without being pushy, and the food was great. For dinner there was lots of buffalo steak type entrees, which 3 out of 4 of us had.... More

I ate here for lunch, did not have a chance to have Colorado lamb yet, they had on their dinner menu, and were more than happy to accommodate preparing a dinner item for me. Food was very good. Lamb was perfectly prepared, the vegetable ragou was very tasty and a nice portion.

We went there in an international group of conference attendees. We had quite a varied selection from the menu, and everybody seemed to be happy with what he/she got. Service was very friendly and coped well with our requests to find additional space for our growing group. I liked the food a lot, however, the net price at the end... More

Steven provided prompt and gracious service as well as great food recommendations. Two highlights of the night were roasted scallops and seafood paella, both of which were delicious. We ballooned the bill with two bottles of fabulous Obsidian wine, a cabernet sauvugnon. The price is high and worth every penny.

After a long night and day of traveling and then catching a game between the Colorado Rockies and the Chicago Cubs in the cold and damp, we were ready for dinner and looking for a cozy, comfortable place to relax and warm up. Checking reviews on Trip Advisor led us to the Appaloosa Grill. On the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall,... More

Service at lunchtime was good, atmosphere was relaxed and a bit noisy, but bison chili was way too spicy for my taste. I wish the server had warned me!

This place was recommended to my husband and I while we were visiting Denver last December. Our hotel bartender mentioned they had live music and a fun happy hour. Boy were they right! Fun live blues music (bands vary by day) and HH. The HH was offered twice daily and had some fun options. Fried pickles were fresh and the... More

Stopped here a few times on a recent visit. Nice bar with interesting performers and decent food. Service was great too. Probably one of the best spots downtown to hangout at night.
