Fantastic food! One of the best meals I’ve had in awhile.
Do not show up early for your reservation - they will not seat you prior to your reservation time, even if there are empty tables.
The food is solid but it is relatively pricey
The food on its own was very good, but the order in which it was brought out really messed up the meal. We ordered shrimp cocktail, beef tartare, a wedge salad to split, and two steaks. The shrimp was brought out first naturally, but the salads followed that. When I asked about the beef tartare, the waiter said he would have it right out, but 5 minutes later we saw it just beginning to be assembled in front of us (we were sitting up at the chefs counter). We had our salad finished for 5 or so minutes before the appetizer was brought out. Following the appetizer, our steaks were brought out. The disarrangement of the courses really took away from the quality of the meal, and was disappointing, especially given the amount spent on the whole meal.
We went to Guard and Grace for our anniversary and booked the reservation well in advance (over a month beforehand). When we arrived a few minutes early, we asked if we could sit outside. We sat by the fire basically in the middle of downtown high-rises and ordered a drink.. we did not get the drinks we ordered (my fiance got odd13 instead of the spacedust he ordered) which was a bit deflating as a first impression and I told the waitress, but she did not seem to care. We then had to close out (not very classy) -- it would have been better to just add it to our tab at our table. When we were seated, our waiter seemed much better - Conrado - and we thought it was goofy and cute that they had an anniversary card for us signed by the staff.. lots of funny comments. We then ordered another round of drinks and the filet mignon flight, as well as brussel sprouts, mac and cheese, and gnocchi. The steak was delicious. We loved the prime filet. The brussels were also great and we both enjoyed the gnocchi. The mac and cheese was not my favorite, but my fiance liked it. We took a look at the dessert menu but there was nothing to our liking. Our waiter brought over two delicious chocolate truffles with 'happy anniversary' on the plate -- really a nice touch. We were both happy with our choice to go here for our special occasion and just wish the bar experience earlier matched the rest of the night. Either way, we would return.
Our party grew from 4 ppl to 5ppl and then within 5 minutes it grew to 6ppl.
Your Host staff did an amazing job handling the increase on a busy night.
I will be back with my customers next time I am in Denver.
Cheers from Nashville!
Outstanding! Great fare, impeccable service. Highly recommend...
One of the top 3 best meals I have ever eaten!! From start to finish it was incredible!
Exceptional salmon dish and paired and prepared even better. Conundrum Red blend by the glass was priced well. My favorite in Denver.
Good lounge seating, chill vibe. More energy at the bar. Well crafted cocktails. 21-day aged steak was excellent!
One of my favorite meals I’ve ever had. I ate the filet and foraged mushroom and it was delicious.
After complaining that we made reservations 2 months in advance for my husbands birthday and didn't appreciate being sat by the kitchen, they did move us. After that we were able to enjoy our evening. Steaks are definitely the best in Denver, haven't had a bad meal here yet. I will say this...when the average meal for two is $300+ does this establishment really need to cram people into those small 2 top tables next to the kitchen!?!?! I ask you, where you feel like the outcast of the restaurant while the only view you have are of other couples enjoying their romantic time together. Puts a real damper on our evening. And if you are expecting a little birthday song or dessert here.. forget it. Strictly come here for a great meal...everything else is extra.
The staff was wonderful, we were late but they accommodated us perfectly and even made out a birthday card for my friend which I thought was an awesome touch. The food was divine, there wasn't anything that someone at the table didn't love. I also appreciate the cocktail menu, beer menu and wine options available for pairing. The wait staff was also very knowledgeable and understanding with my gluten paranoia as I have an allergy and there was little modification needed for a majority of dishes as they don't 'hide' flour in many things. The only thing is a Friday night it was really hard to hear because of how loud the restaurant can get to the point where it was difficult to converse with people outside of my immediate neighbors at the table, but that might be resolved if you were in one of the booths or in a different area (it seems that most of the materials aren't very sound dampening). Would go again, would recommend.
The food was delicious and service excellent. However, it was so loud in the restaurant that our party couldn't communicate without shouting, and we couldn't hear the waiter. It made for an unenjoyable evening. At the process, a pleasant environment should be a key objective.
Best steak eaten since can't remember when! Everything was wonderful.
I would have given 5 stars for all, but the waiter was really dry and not much for conversation. He did good and was right on anything we needed. The food was Amazing! The kitchen staff that served the food was informative and very friendly. Very modern and vibrant! We will definitely be back.
My Wife and I enjoyed her 27th Bday dinner here and had a tremendous experience! We will absolutely be back
The food is amazing! It is expensive but you get what you pay for. The waiters are very knowledgeable of the menu and drinks. Great place for a special occasion. Favorite steakhouse in Colorado.
Amazing view and amazing food. Overall the best steak house I've been to in Denver. A must go!!!!
Great service - our waiter was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. Steak was excellent and surprisingly so was the octopus
Only negative sommelier was a little slow. We had to wait quite a while for a recommendation and the wine we ordered.
Fantastic from top to bottom. Birthday card for the birthday girl, signed by all the staff, exceptional food, equaled by the service. Get the gnocchi. She was cutting her prime filet with her fork. One of the best meals we've had in Denver.
This place reminds me of eating at trendy STK at the Cosmo in Vegas. AMAZING food, energetic ambience, great service and fantastic cocktails. They will take care of you here, but you will pay a premium price for it, as well ;) Enjoy!!
I’m am from Florida and heard about this restaurant. The food was amazing. Our waiter was wonderful!! The setting was very nice as well. If I ever go back to Denver, I will definitely come back.
Guard and Grace is our favorite place for special occasion dates. The food, especially the steaks, are superb! Wonderful sides, drinks, and desserts as well.
This was our 1st time there and it was above and beyond our expectations. Our waiter Jake was exceptional and the food was amazing! Highly recommend!
Anniversary. Ambience is very corporate.
I have an office right across the street. I have eaten here two times recently. The first time it was fabulous with excellent service. This last time it was not a good experience. We had a reservation, were told we could sit outside then at the last minute they said they seated a big party out there. We were on time but had to wait about 10 minutes to get seated.
I had the french dip. There was very little meat on the sandwich and the french fries were so salty that I could not eat them. It was very disappointing.
Excellent food and superb service. I couldn't ask for anything more for a business lunch. Thanks!
My husband and I went to Guard and Grace to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant was beautiful and the entire wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Our waiter, Joshua, was excellent. He gave us recommendations and answered all our questions. Our steaks were incredible, as was the truffled gnocchi. We shared the goat cheesecake which was a perfect balance of light, creamy, and sweet. We loved our experience and will definitely celebrate future special occasions here!
The steaks were not wonderful and for the prices, we expected them to be! The service was superior. Very hard to hear each other.
Really great service - they are very on top of things & very attentive. Food was really yummy!
Guard and Grace exceeded my expectations! I had heard great things, so when my wife offered to take me for my birthday I was all in. We informed them of my birthday when we made the reservation, and EVERY SINGLE STAFF PERSON I encountered told me happy birthday. Not only that, but I received a signed birthday card from the kitchen staff! The meal was phenomenal—awesome charcuterie platter, tender ribeye, and the softest, pillowy gnocchi I've ever had. The star of the show for me was (dare I say it) a plate of perfectly tender, roasted brussels sprouts. My wife will tell you that brussels sprouts are not high on my list of favorite vegetables, so that is high praise from me! Overall, we had a great evening and would love to come back!
The steak, hands down 100% worth it!!
The wine is way over priced. Go for the meat. Grab drinks before or after.
Great food and wonderful staff. Tell them in advance if you have theater tickets and they will get you on your way.
We have been to Guard and Grace before several times, and this visit was sub-par from a service and ambiance perspective. Music was not fitting and too loud and our waiter was obviously too busy. Overall though, the steak is amazing.
Food was very tasty. The place was just quite noisy for a date, and it is not a romantic restaurant. Overall, if you want to just enjoy the food, this is the one. And additionally, it would be perfect for like birthday parties or company parties...etc.
Outstanding food and service! Plus, LOVE the convenience of the valet parking.
Excellent fine dining experience with great service! The food was top-notch from start to finish and the staff was friendly, engaging, and not 'stuffy' despite the upscale dining. Great wine selection as well.
Great food and fantastic service. In particular we loved the cod, filet mignon, and roasted carrots. Well deserved ranking as best steak house in Denver.
Been here a few time always leave extremely happy and satisfied
