Came here for business group dinner. Staff was friendly and did a good job. Steak I had was tougher than I was expecting. Salad was overly salty. I probably wouldn't go back with so many other choices

I've visited the US a few times and sampled some pretty delightful food (mainly in NYC) and some pretty ropey stuff too (mainly on the west coast where size and ambiance seem to be the main selling points with flavour a secondary consideration), 1515 really challenged my perception of America as being a land of poor-quality meat and mushy veg...

The setting is inviting, the menu is mouth-watering, but the service (my experience) was the most disappointing part of the evening. 2 couples waiting for acknowledgement from the server for well over 5 minutes, and then another 5 minutes to get water or a menu should have been the tip-off. The restaurant was not that busy, but obviously the wait... More

Business dinner this week. Interesting menu selections. The corn soup was very good. Steak appetizer on toasted roll done well. The Icelandic cod was a bit disappointing- didn't seem fresh. Creme brûlée was excellent. Servers were attentive.

I hate Restaurant Week and usually avoid going out; however, when I looked at 1515's menu for the week I was drawn in. Many options looked good so we booked a table. My Restaurant Week fears were unfounded -- the service was impeccable, the setting is sophisticated with the exposed brick walls, lovely light fixtures, white tablecloths, the spacing is... More

One of our favorite (though not-inexpensive) places in the downtown Denver area, 1515 provides food that is always beautifully served, from a creative (and not burdensomely extensive) menu. It is a couple blocks off the beaten path, but it is always an awesome experience for us. I had the 7X Wagyu Hanging Tender Steak, served with Creamed Spinach, Smoked Potato... More

They have amazing food and an incredible drink and wine list. The service literally blew me away. Johnson is awesome at what he does, and we will definitely be back!! The wagyu steak is incredible, and very reasonably priced. They also have vintage Jordan cabernet which is my favorite wine! I highly recommend dining here :)

Went here for a James Beard dinner and had a great time -- Went back -- they come close but with these prices they should deliver more -- no dishes are truly great some are just bland -- Good wine and cocktails -- friendly staff
