Barolo Grill Ratings and Reviews
This was a nice restaurant. Or server and her team was exceptional. However, I was a bit disappointed in the food...which surprised me! The salad with amazing mushrooms was the highlight out of the appetizers, entrees and dessert we had. It was nice overall, but didn't knock my socks off.
I have taken a number of friends and colleagues to Barolo Grill when I am in the Denver area for business. It has been a go to restaurant for me. In the past, the food and service were excellent. My visit with five friends last Saturday was not our usual experience. The service was slow. The menu selection sounded good but most of my party found the food to be bland. I plan to return to Barolo Grill and hope that my next visit will see a return of the excellent food and menu and the great service that I am accustom to receiving at this restaurant.
Service me was slow but the remaining staff were very attentive. We enjoyed ourselves but have been to better Italian joints, steakhouses and higher end casual restaurants in Denver. Having this restaurant be ranked as high as it is on many sites such as 5280 and denver eater it was less than impressive and doesn't live up to the hype. Don't plan on returning as there are much better places in town to experience.
Our flight landed late and we were having a hard time finding a place for dinner that was nice and still serving. I came across Barolo which was perfect considering we were staying in Cherry Creek. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. They catered to our needs to have dairy free food due to my fiancées allergy
Froie Gras was outstanding as was the wine that was selected for me. Out of the main meals ordered, one dish was delicious, the second pasta dish was ok, but tasted off and the third entre was served cold. It was reheated, thrown back on plate and so poorly presented, I chose not to eat it. At this point, we just asked for to- go boxes.
The only downside was we waited 40 minutes to sit even though we had a reservation. (Valentine's day). Furious, I was certain the old man that told me 'it's worth the wait' was wrong, but I was a fool in the end, for when I sat down I had the finest dining experience in probably 5 years.
The staff was excellent! Our waiter was friendly and personable throughout the evening. The food was good, but a bit too rich for our liking. We were celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary, and we were surprised that they didn't do anything special for us for dessert. Overall, still an 8 out of 10.
You will not be disappointed here if you're looking for off-the-charts excellent food at what I'd call a moderate price, great service, top notch wine list, and experienced bar tenders who know how to make a top shelf drink of any kind. 2000 varieties of wine - which translates into 13,000 bottles. The sommelier/wine experts will gladly choose a bottle for you. What I found very honorable and appreciated, is that our sommelier picked out an excellent bottle of wine for us that was below the "budget" we gave her. Atmosphere - it has somewhat of a neighborhood feel, with a cool sophistication, without being snooty. Not that there's a dress code, but I'd suggest at least opting for jeans and a nice shirt / sweatshirt / sport coat - or "casual elegant", but you will also be comfortable here if you want to dress to the nines for a night out and be the people who people are watching. Enjoy!
Continues to impress and amaze after years. But better than all the accolades I could heap upon them is how they treat their staff. The annual trip to Italy is somewhat legendary but it is the day-to-day treatment that impresses. In places like San Francisco, New York or London, you couldn't get near Barolo Grill without booking months ahead. We're very lucky to have them here in Denver and where a more laid-back style goes with dinner.
Consistently amazing! I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone--one of my all-time favorites! My boyfriend and I had our first date here 8 years ago (almost) and have celebrated every special occasion--and lots of regular date nights also--here ever since. We bring friends from in town, out of town, and out of the country here and it has always impressed our guests. The wait staff knowledge of the menu and wine list, the professional and friendly staff (starting with the valet, and carrying through the host and wait staff and the management), the unique menu items, the consistently high quality of the food...I can't say enough. If you haven't tried it, you owe it to yourself to enjoy this timeless classic Denver favorite :-) Always interesting to hear a little bit about the annual Italy trip they take the staff on to find new wines and menu items and learn about the Italian countryside, etc--just another indication how much Barolo Grill wants to provide an authentic Italian experience.
We've been to Barolo Grill several times over the years, and it's definitely a Denver staple. In the past, we've been very happy with our meals, but this experience fell a little short of expectations. All of the courses were underseasoned and could have benefited from a stronger hand with the salt. Nothing was bad, per se, but nothing was memorable either. Even the wine was just meh. After describing our preference for a big, strong white wine, they recommended a bland, insipid white that did not stand up to the food. The only bright spot was the creme brulee - we appreciated the shallow dish that allowed the perfect ratio of crispy crust to creamy interior. Probably our last visit to Barolo Grill.
Barolo Grill delivers another amazing meal. Chef Daryl and Andrew killing it! Soon to be best restaurant in Denver(currently rated #2 on Eater) server Extremely knowledgeable on all food and FINE quality Italian wine. As a chef and someone that enjoys the finer things in life I cannot recommend this place enough. Bravo!
Very disappointed in this highly touted northern Italian Cherry Creek restaurant. My husband and I were hoping to find that special neighborhood gem that could deliver Northern Italian cuisine . Instead we found a pretentious restaurant that didn't come close to delivering: not on food, not on service, not on value. We began with a salad of rucola e fungi which compared to the frito mist was a home run. The latter was over cooked and came with a watery aioli that had little taste. Our entrees were not much better. Tortellini ai cinghiale was the worst dish of the night with an overcooked sauce of wild boar, a dry flavorless sauce at best. The Bronzino, actually striped bass, was better but offered hardly a 3 ounce serving. Service really killed the evening. Our waiter seemed to be overwhelmed. We asked him to bring the wine list so we could order more wine to go with our entree. We were down to the last few bites when he finally got around to asking if we wanted anything else. Yes, they have gotten several good reviews but this one visit did it for us. Denver has so many hi-end restaurants that deliver more for your money.
The waiter was terrific. Knowledgeable and friendly and gave good suggestions.
The food was delicious and not the run of the mill. Had fried eggplant appetizer, orange roughy entree and lamb entree. We were both very happy. Delicious glass of wine. Also yummy free birthday dessert...small but enough for us. We will return.
