Barolo Grill Ratings and Reviews
Everything was excellent and we'll certainly return EXCEPT the coffee was below expectation and there were no pistascios in the pistascio gelato! How dare they...

We had a dark table next to loud people and could not be moved. Our food was just fair... Scallops and seafood pasta, overall not a great memory to celebrate our anniversary. Won't go back, which is too bad, this was our favorite restaurant in Denver.

An overall excellent evening but a bit overpriced.
This is an excellent restaurant in every way. The server told us a little more than we wanted to know about the menu, but he did an excellent job. The food is always delicious, and the wine menu, in my opinion, is world class. Barolo is on the expensive side, but I'll be back again and again!
What a treat
This is my 3rd visit at this restaurant and each one has been special, from the appetizers to the pasta dishes, to the main course, one better than the other. The only uninviting item: dessert which comes in too small servings
Barolo is like a fine Italian wine
An old pal (she an author in town for book signing, plus a radio talk show host) was as impressed as we always are at Barolo Grill. For my money (it's not inexpensive), it's the best dining place in town, our go-to in a pinch or on special occasions. Never rushed, great oasis to eat, drink and share ideas. Our lovely waitress even gave a young person's opinion on current politics. We look forward to the next occasion, after sampling Italian fare in NYC for 2 weeks.
We enjoy our meals. Had duck and Veal.

Another wonderful anniversary celebrated at Barolo Grill. A super place for celebrating anything or just a great meal out! Our favorite!
Special occasion place
We've been here several times, and it's always nice to know that we'll get consistently good food and service when we do decide to splurge. They've one of the best wine lists in Denver. If you're after a romantic dinner, ask for the seat in front of the fire place.
It was just okay...
My date and I shared a $14 salad which only took us each about four bites to finish... The portions were way too small to charge $14 per salad and ~$25 an entrée. Also, my date and I both felt like the service was too helpful actually - we couldn't go more than 3 minutes without the waitress or bus boy asking how everything was, refilling or water or wine for us... basically, we felt interrupted several times while in conversation, which was just a little overkill.
I have always thought of Borolo Grill as one of the best upscale restaurants in Denver. Last Wednesday's meal confirmed that impression. The chef's tasting menu with wine is a real indulgent treat. The duck was excellent. The service is outstanding. All the tables were filled with people having good meals.
Best meal ever
Barolo grill was such an incredible experience. The wine list was amazing and the service was paced perfectly. All of the food was superb and the service was great as well. Overall I would highly recommend making this your next special occasion spot!
Three of the four meals were wonderful. My wife ordered scallops. there were four very small scallops and the presentation on plate was not very good for $31.00

A true dining experience. Had a business dinner with two colleagues. Calm atmosphere which allowed for conversation but lively enough to enjoy the atmosphere. Food was tremendous. Very authentic Italian. Server was great at offering recommendations. Excellent wine menu. Will return.
Barolo Grill never disappoints. Service is always on point. I never feel forgotten nor overwhelmed. Whatever you do, you have to try their take on creme brulee. The custard is the silkiest and they serve it thin on a large plate so there's plenty of caramelized surface.

First time visiting Barolo Grill. All service (valet, hosts, bar, & server) was stellar. Tasting menu was delicious and beautifully executed. Wine pairings & additional wine suggestions were spot-on. Beautiful spot to celebrate my husband's birthday. Bravo!

Excellent meal overall. Food was fantastic and out waiter was great about answering and helping us get what we wanted! I would definitely go again
The wine list is extensive to say the least. In addition, the staff's knowledge of the wines is great. Since we were not familiar with the wines, our service was able to recommend wines that were perfect for our palate and paired perfectly with our meal.
Great restaurant with great food and service
I went there for a date and the place was impeccable. It is an unassuming restaurant in a neighborhood setting. The food was great and the experience was awesome with the wait staff. Try the duck, it's stupendous
Excellent Food and Service
We were at the Barolo Grill this past weekend to celebrate my daughter's graduation. We enjoyed dinner in the wine room which was perfect for our small family group, and had great service throughout the meal. The server took time to explain the menu and make recommendations, and the food was outstanding. They had a very nice wine list with prices similar to other restaurants of this level. We will definitely be back.
One of my favorite Denver Restauants
We were seated promptly our waiter was great and recommended awesome red wine that was reasonably priced. The appetizer was very good with a ample food, my entrée the halibut was bland it was as though the seasoning and searing was missed. My girlfriend had the Tortelli and it was awesome.
My Favorite Denver Restaurant
Barolo Grill has been devoted to region specific tastes and food for years and they continue to deliver amazing, thoughful and creative northern Italian food. The wait staff knows the traditions of Italian food, the ingredients and the cooking inside and out. The service is good and the Italian wine list is thoughtful and reasonably priced. One of my favorite places to eat.
We went for both a birthday and to participate in Angel Heart fundraising. First time for each of us--the food was wonderful and the wine recommendations were great. Every member of staff was friendly, welcoming and provided more than we expected.
Always top notch
We returned to Barolo Grill once again for the tasting menu. Last visit was an unbelievable dinner. This time the courses were all great. The kitchen has consistently remarkable execution. The pasta was the best course (as usual). Wine pairings were good but not so much to my taste.
Good food with quality ingredients, but overpriced
A fine place for a date with good food, thought not on par with the price. However, this may be seasonal. Our previous visit (Fall two years ago) was incredible but Wednesday's (April 27th 2016) was merely good, which is not sufficient for a $75 per person meal (including one drink). As they do source quality ingredients, it may be their spring selection needs improvement. It could also be they have gone done hill. It is questionable if I will be returning to find out.
We had the chef's tasting menu with the wine pairings -- service and food was excellent!
Great food, annoying wine list.
Ours was a special occasion dinner for seven. We are generally ok with lingering long over dinner, but three and half hours seemed a bit much. The food was good to great, but the wine list was a real problem. It ran to at least 30 or 40 pages and most of the wines were $200 and up a bottle. I would say 90% or more of the wines were Italian, which were the most expensive in the book. I own a wine distributorship in Colorado and am part owner of an Australian wine company; so I can assure you this kind of expense for the wine is absolutely unnecessary; even in the finest restaurants. So, please Barolo, better and fewer choices and better prices for your wine.
This is one of the best restaurants in the world!
Barolo is an exceptional dining experience. From the greeting, the personal attention by the owner/maitre d' to the wait staff...and finally to the food and paired wines. The experience is simply exquisite. I could only compare Barolo to Charlie Trotter's in Chicago of days gone by. It's simply delightful. Thank you, Ryan and team
Top notch dining experience
Our dinner at Barolo Grill was outstanding and memorable. Our table of five had the tasting menu paired with wines, and each course was a new adventure. This restaurant has never let me down. One of my all-time favorites.

For my money, Barolo Grill is the best restaurant in town: quiet, comfortable, excellent choices of food, great flavors/cooking and incomparable service. We're always encouraged to share, which means we can have 4, 5 or 6 courses without emptying the wallet. As good as it gets.
I've passed this restaurant many times and always wanted to give it a try. The food did not disappoint. Excellent meal with excellent service.
The service was excellent. Our waiter recommended the pork loin and I went with the duck, but after trying my sister's pork loin I could see his wisdom. The tagliatelle with lamb was also exceptional; honestly the duck was good but it paled in comparison to the other things at the table. The cheese souffle appetizer was amazing. If I'd had a wine-drinking crowd with me they'd have been happy people; I noticed a few wines on the menu that I would have liked to do by the bottle but the glass of Montepulciano D'Abruzzo I ended up with struck me as a classic Italian red, not too complex but delicious all the way through ... and vastly better than what you'll generally find as the cheapest glass of red on a menu. We brought a 1-year-old which I wouldn't recommend doing at this restaurant, but it was a special occasion so we came early and they were very accommodating. I have actually already recommended this restaurant to a friend, so that answers that question.
Superb Italian Restaurant!
Barolo is an excellent restaurant. The cocktails at the bar are exceptionally good. The wine list is extensive but caters to all price ranges. The food is outstanding ! The crab salad was so fresh and the "pinches" of pasta in the browns age butter were out of this world. The staff are a cut above the usual restaurant staff and are very knowledgeable about the menu.
Portions SUPER small
New management serving really small plates. $31 for a plate with just three small scallops. Expect to order multiple courses just to be satiated. Food was not even that good!

Excellent food, attention to detail, and professional service. My husband and I had a wonderful evening! Thank you!
This was our second experience there; the first experience was more romantic. The first experience, we were seated in a quiet area on the back wall side of the bar. This experience, we wanted to sit at a window seat, but because we did not request it in our reservation, we were seated toward the back near the kitchen in the main dining area. We enjoyed our initial experience better.
Nice to venture out
Great waiter JJ. Outgoing and fun. Delicious food!! Only issue was the smallest serving of Gelato ever. (the side of a cork). I asked to speak to the owner and the hostess wanted to see if anything was wrong. (I hope people give compliments too). Spoke to the owner to tell him about our night and wonderful waiter. (Wasn't expecting anything but a "come back and I'll buy you a drink" would have sealed the evening)
Incredible service and food! I really en ...
Incredible service and food! I really enjoyed the testing menu.
Sets the Standard for Excellence
My wife and I have eaten at Barolo Grill on a number of occasions when we've stayed overnight in Denver. Love the place. The ambiance is great: up-scale, yet welcoming and comfortable, and the service is always flawless. Barolo is one of our "go-to" restaurants whenever we are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, etc. On this visit we started with a wonderful soufflé, followed by Diver Scallops (very good) and the Veal (a bit tough, but plated beautifully). We washed it down with a nice Albarino, which was reasonably priced and matched well with the food. Both servings were plentiful, such that we had to forego dessert, other than coffee. Barolo Grill always seems to be busy and it's easy to see why......
