Barolo Grill Ratings and Reviews
We have heard about this restaurant for many years and finally had the good fortune to viait there last Saturday evening.
The food was creative, delicious and served at just the right temperature.
Our server was very attentive and did not rush us but was there whenever we needed her. It is evident now why Barolo Grill receives such high marks in a busy Denver restaurant market.
Can't wait to go back!!
The food and service were exceptional. Usually we find this sort of restaurant and experience tucked away in a small Italian village. It is wonderful to know that we don't have to travel to Italy for such a delightful culinary experience. We will certainly return to Barolo Grill in the near future!
Excellent food and service. The tenderloin was amazing! The lobster salad was very creative. The wine was very good. The coffee was served hot and the biscotti was nicely made, the best I've ever tasted. Everything arrived in a timely manner, and when we went outside, our valet parked car was waiting for us without a request to anybody. How do they do that?
The food was incomparable. The sea bream was perfection. But the service on Sept 29 was far too slow. I expect a leisurely pace, but we four diners each questioned the slowness. We weren't brought a wine list for twenty minutes after being seated.Once ordered, wine was very slow to arrive, as was the food. With a 7:45 reservation, we did not have food until after 9:00. The elevated dining space, while cozy, is reached by two steps which should be lighted. Two in our group stumbled.
One diner's dinner was 10 minutes late due to a kitchen mix-up. The others waited or tried to eat slowly. It was awkward. Also not much crab meat in the dish. We did get a free dessert , but maybe the late meal should have been free also. The rest of the service was good.
The Barolo Grill the best Italian restaurant in Denver and has long been one of our favorite restaurants. We hadn't been here in about 2 years. There are so many outstanding new restaurants, and we only go out to the top tier places 3-4 times per year. We'd heard that the food quality at Barolo had taken a downward turn last year, but had worked hard to get it back to its historic high quality. We can definitely say that the food was wonderful - flavorful, fresh, and presented in an appealing manner. The service was excellent, though our server was could have been just a bit warmer.
We won't wait another 2 years for our next visit!
Our appetizers were inventive, amazingly delicious, and fun! I had the squid ink pasta - to DIE for!!! My husband had the duck, which was mediocre, at best. It was dry and ordinary (I think the appetizers had us ready to be WOWed for the following dishes). The creme brûlée was one of the best I ever had - and because we were celebrating a special anniversary, they were very kind to bring out a special treat for us. All in all, we would definitely return (but just not order the duck).
Price was just over $200 for 4 of us, that included two appetizers and 3 glasses of wine. So definitely on the higher side as far as value. But the food was really outstanding. A lot of places in Denver charge 4 star prices for what is really 2.5-3 star food. Not here. Everything we had was wonderful from the appetizers, special breads, entrees and dessert. Staff was very knowledgable and friendly.
This was my third visit to Barolo. The two previous visits were very special, but the food and service during this visit were beyond exceptional. My guest and I both ordered the caprese salad and were in awe of the heirloom tomatoes, the olive oil powder (yes, powder), the house-made burrata cheese, and the balsamic vinaigrette that looked like caviar all came together exquisitely. (Before the salad, we enjoyed the breadsticks with a white bean hummus that was made with kalmata olives, parmesan, and rosemary...it exceeded all expectations by a mile.) The rolls, sprinkled with thyme, were warm and delicious. Our entrees were again the same, a delightful sea bass that was serve with a vegetable side dish that included roasted Olathe sweet corn (the best). The fish was cooked perfectly. For dessert, we shared a chocolate dipped biscotti and a crème brulee. Both were excellent. Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing, and answered all of our questions with ease. I wish I lived within walking distance, but am glad I'm only about 15 minutes away by car. (Oh, loved the valet parking, too, especially since parking is at a premium in that beautiful residential area.)
We bring our son here every time we visit Denver. This restaurant is outstanding! The food is amazing, the service is excellent, the lady bartender (Katie?) makes the best Cosmopolitans we have ever had. Carolyn , who has been our server on previous occasions is wonderful and very knowledgeable about the menu and the wines. The lobster salad was incredible - so fresh. The veal pastas have layers of flavours and our son thought the beef fillet was the best meal he has eaten at Barolo even though he rated all the others A+. We will return on our next visit.
I had been looking for a nice spot to celebrate our anniversary. Barolo kept popping up in my research, and I figured it was time to give it a try. I'm glad we did! We had reservations and were promptly seated. The menus (food and wine) were both very appealing. My wife and I both decided to go with the tasting menu (and accompanying wine pairings) to get a good feel for the restaurant's offerings and chef's style. We were very impressed. The menu changes, depending on what is seasonal, but the listed 5 courses and wines were absolutely delightful. Two additional food items and an additional wine were also brought to the table, making us pleasantly filled. The service was fantastic, with our primary server (Esther) taking excellent care of us with a wonderful presentation of each dish and wine. The other servers who assisted bringing out each dish were also knowledgeable and friendly.
The ambiance was cozy and friendly, and though it was a fine dining experience, it did not have the pretentious airs one might expect given the price level. When I go out for a fine dining experience, this is exactly what I am looking to find. I am prepared to spend a larger amount of money and expect a top-notch product in return, but I want it done in a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere. My wife and I want to know the names of all of our servers and have friendly conversation with them as we experience our dinner. Barolo Grill most certainly provided the exact experience we sought, and I will absolutely recommend it and patronize again in the future!
I have eaten at Barolo Grill on several prior occasions and it is my favorite restaurant in the Denver area. It is a bit pricey but it is the world class wine list that contributes to that, not the outstanding food. The service was outstanding. I really liked it when our waiter got down on his knees beside our table (and all his other also) to explain the menu. This out him face to face with us. I have never seen that before but loved it. Just a great place to eat.
Disappointing. For years I had been wanting to go to Barolo. Some of the food was pretty good, but some wasn't impressive.
Fritto misto was so-so. The Tagliatelle with veal was very good, Agnolotti not so much. Duck was pretty good, though I liked the veggies on my plate (excellent) more than the duck. DH was a fan of his pork dish. I like that you can order a tasting size of the pasta, it is fun to taste multiple dishes but not fill up.
The biggest disappointment was with sub par service. Waitress couldn't recall my drink order and came back to ask again. Then the cocktails came out several minutes apart - huh? My cocktail was meh.
Waitress messed up our primi order and they brought out wrong dish. They brought out the correct one fairly quickly but with the prices you are paying the service should be flawless. Not one of the better meals (food or service) I have had in Denver.
I've lived in Denver for 18 years, and this was my first time to Barolo Grill. I'd heard so many amazing things about this place; my boyfriend and I decided to try it for a celebration. It was amazing! The wine list is quite substantial; it would take you a lifetime (and lots of moo-lah) to get through it. The food was impressive; but we were not a fan of the pre-meal breadsticks (seemed a little dry/stale). Our waiter, Andrew, was awesome...very friendly, very accommodating, very helpful and knowledgeable. The bill was a little steep, but we did indulge in some very tasty vino that was pricey and totally worth it!! Big thanks to the sommelier for her help and recommendations!
Wonderful evening! The combination of incredible food, impeccable service and inviting atmosphere was perfect. We had the tasting menu and I added the wine course. Every bite was an adventure and the wine pairings were a perfect complement to each course.
We are definitely planning to return and look forward to our next special occasion dinner at Barolo's.
Barolo Grill always impresses my husband and me. We brought friends who hadn't eaten and the food as well as service were outstanding.
Especially love the size options of the pasta course. Truly enjoyed the wine and food from salad through dessert. We'll be back.
