We have dined at Broker before and were always impressed on those visits with this upscale and expensive dining experience. When we dined this time mid-week, the service was slow. We had to wait several minutes for someone to show up to seat us, and...More

Bought a Groupon to try The Broker after hearing about it. Walking into a vault to dine was surreal after having worked in an actual bank. The setting could be romantic or casual which makes it a good place to dine. We had the shrimp...More

We booked this because of the history and got so much more. Our servers were full of knowledge and we felt special as we ate a fantastic dinner that met all of our expectations and more.

My husband and I ate here for our wedding anniversary. The décor is simply lovely inside an old bank vault with wood paneled intimacy. Serving staff were very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and the history of the property. The food was delicious. We...More

I purchased a Groupon for dinner for two at The Broker. The ambience alone was worth the price of the meal for 2, which with the Groupon was only $89. There are only 4 choices of entree with this Groupon option, but they are excellent...More

We entered through an actual bank vault door into a more that interesting dining establishment. The booths were once used for safe deposit customers. Service was great and food was wonderful. A must see.

Used a Groupon and loved it. Very neat atmosphere, great service, and delicious food! I had the prime rib and my wife had the salmon. We were both very happy with our selections. Without the Groupon it would be a very expensive meal.

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.
