"I was visiting some friends when travelling in Denver and we went here based off of good reviews - they were right! The food was outstanding, we had a nice bottle of wine, and got the chance to talk to the chef for a few minutes before we left. Would recommend!"

"We've always enjoyed a great brunch at Gaia.....this was our first experience with dining in the evening. The flank steak was perfection and the short ribs just perfect for a smaller portion. Since it was a beautiful night we sat outside and took in the sights of people strolling around the neighborhood. Good service and we enjoyed being able to have a conversation without shouting at each other. All in all , a wonderful experience. We will be sure to come back........and bring friends and family with us!!!"

"Cute restaurant, friendly staff, great food. A bit expensive ($100+ for two people and one glass of wine each).
Cozy...almost too cozy. A few small dining rooms so the tables are right on top of each other. Very light dinner crowd so felt like everyone could overhear our conversation."

"Gaia is located in a converted house that is modest but comfortably homey. There are no corporate-inspired decorations, but the staff is thoroughly professional. Our food was excellent and the Vietnamese starter was unique. It was our first visit there and it was a lovely experience."

"Breakfast and brunch is lays great here...however, this was my second time there for dinner. Both times happened to be on cold snowy nights!
We practically had the small dining room to ourselves...which meant Chef Richie came out to talk to us and explain the food. It was a fret experience. Four of us....four different entrees. Chicken and dumplings was great comfort food...a twist on the short ribs was great.....lasagna was yummy and steak was good as well.
Will be back next time it snows. It is just a cozy place to be on a snowy night.
We will go back to sitting outside come summer!
