Good food, good service and reasonable prices. Right on the 16th Street Mall. Menu has a wide variety of choices. Service was very attentive.The portions were a good size and the prices were reasonable. We had the lobster/shrimp fettuccine and would recommend it to others.

Stepped out of the hotel looking for something local for breakfast and found this place, friendly staff greeted on entry, shown straight to a table and offered coffee and water. Good breakfast selection and ordered the Denver Omelette naturally. Good choice came quickly and was...More

Went here for a relatively quick lunch. I enjoy the atmosphere, the quick service, friendly wait staff and of course the great food. I had some fish tacos with the truffle fries. I highly recommend both. The latter is especially tasty.

Nice beer and wine selection, quick service and good food. Chipotle salmon salad, duck tacos and great smaller plates as well. Very convenient near corner of 16th and Champa. We’ll be back.

Nice spot on the 16th St. Mall. All 4 of us enjoyed the food and service. I tried the Bison Meatloaf and it was great, the chef did well. For those who wrote negative reviews about the entrée, they should stick with I-Hop.

This place had a French cafe feel. It was comfortable and friendly. The chicken pot pie was so good that I might just go back again. Don't miss Martini Mondays! So worth it!

This was our first meal in Denver. We arrived during happy hour, unintentionally, but to our benefit. Appetizers and drinks are much cheaper. We took advantage of ordering appetizers and martinis- both were really good. They were very accommodating for my kids- no written kids...More
