Superb service in a hip, happening and elegant setting. Every course was exceptional right down to dessert. We will go back when in Denver.

I am not really into fusion asian but must admit they had me with the porc and brocoli. I was alone at the bar, and the service was friendly, attentive and professional.

The food at Cholon was very good but by far the most amazing thing I ate was the soup dumplings! I wish that I had just ordered 10 orders of those it was so good and so unique! Loved it!

Is this a typical shorts and sandals kind of place or do people dress up a little bit?

We ate there in the evening and I would say that most people were dressed business casual. That was in early May. I would think that during the summer you would see people with shorts and a collared shirt?
