Guard & Grace Ratings and Reviews

Very nice experience on my wife's birthday. They presented her a birthday card and a special desert with a candle. I did not even ask the waiter to do any of this, they just surprised us.
We had the bone-in Ribeye. Wife thought it was the best Ribeye she ever had.

My 3rd time to Guard and Grace and it has yet to disappoint. Always a very friendly and attentive staff. The food is amazing and the steaks are always cooked to perfection. The crispy brussel sprouts alone would make me come back-by far my favorite side dish offered. Will be back 100%

Top notch the first few times, this last time was a little disappointing. My steak was over done, and my second one simply just missed the mark a bit on flavor. Although my wife & daughter were thoroughly pleased with theirs & my son loved their chicken.

Delicious prime steaks and truffle mac and cheese. Everything that we ordered was awesome. The rolls they bring out before the meal are remarkable. A lot of nice touches. We were visiting from out of town and give it two thumbs up!

Now this is what I was hoping for in a steakhouse! What a treat! A flight of filets?! Are you kidding me? What a wonderful way to experience and compare different cuts of meat. Mouthwatering!!! Bone-in ribeye was ridiculously good. The couple we were with stated it was the best they've ever tasted. I got my aged NY Strip Pittsburg style with a blue center and it was PRECISELY ON TARGET! The sommelier paired everything beautifully. Then just to cap off the night just right, we had to do the flights of Macallan. Unbelievable! A definite must!

The food was outstanding. The Pork Chop and the Rib Eye were beyond words. The food was seasoned just right. The service was outstanding and the wait staff were very attentive. There are several rooms that are amazing. Unfortunately we did not request a quieter room. Overall if you sit in the wrong section, there is a noise level problem. I should note that we were a party of 4 and 2 of us have hearing problems. Want to be fair. It is hard to get reservations. Reserve early.

Good but not outstanding. Tartar app was very good, octopus was OK. Wedge salad was good. Steak was good. Brussel sprouts were very good.
Service was a little slow (crossed the line from 'dining experience' to slow service) and inattentive at times (wine glasses got empty).

Food and service were amazing and expertly prepared. The steak with the balsamic glaze was so tasty and melt in your mouth good. Bread and side dishes were perfectly sized and server was very good about providing options and explaining the menu.

Fantastic overall. The food is creative - go for the Black Cod, mac & cheese and Brussel sprouts. The big booth tables are awkward for the servers, they will knock glasses off of the table trying to reach for plates etc. and reaching over the back wall is definitely not the solution.

The food was great. The gnocchi brought tears to my eyes! What really stood out was the service. My father is in a wheelchair and on an oxygen concentrator, the staff found us an accessible table where he could plug in the concentrator during dinner. They were so very kind!

Fabulous spot for a business meal, after work happy hour, or a special "treat yourself" experience - from the moment we walked in, we could feel the energy and excellent vibe, and we were not disappointed with our great waiter, Jake, who walked us through menu choices, the history of the restaurant (as well as the entire restaurant group), offered assistance with wines, and selections. Food was prompt, and delicious, with unique twists and offerings for side dishes. Entire experience was fantastic - definitely recommend!

This was a fantastic way to end the Denver trip. Ambiance is romantic, dark, and businesses-like yet the staff are so energetic and easy-going. The food lives up to its high rates, although I wouldn't order the crab legs again. Wasn't worth it. The prime rib and steaks were all cooked to perfection and had delectable flavor. The prosciutto was so good and so was the cod. Just everything was so great. I wouldn't miss out on this restaurant if you're in the area!

I've ate at Guard & Grace over 15 times and I'd have to say the quality and quantity has gone down! I ordered the grass fed 8 oz stake and it was terrible, it was more like a 6 oz to start, asked for medium and it was cold in the center as well as bloody. The Brussel sprouts were burnt and taste bitter. My fiancée ordered the salmon and the piece was very small probably 3oz and it was on a bed of three potatoes lol you call that a entree our bill was over $100 and we left hungry and unsatisfied on our anniversary!!! Oh yeah and we spent 40$ on drinks before we sat down for dinner!

The food was delicious and the service was fantastic! Our waiter went above and beyond to make me feel special during my birthday dinner here. There were a couple of other birthday groups who got to be a bid loud, but the overall experience was amazing!

Business lunch. The server did a wonderful job of reading the table and leaving us alone at important moments the inserting himself properly to keep the lunch moving. The food was delicious. Creative enough for foodies but not off-putting for those just looking for something they recognize. Pricey but definitely worth it for a business lunch or special occassion where the venue plays a role in the event.

Guard and Grace was an amazing restaurant. The whole experience was superb. I took my wife on a date and we had a very enjoyable evening. The steak is the best I have ever had and it just melts in your mouth. The hickory smoke flavor from the wood burning grill, gave the meat a flavor second to none. We also had octopus as an appetizer and this was delicious. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Nothing was left out and I will definitely go back, and I live in Nebraska. If you like steak, you will love this place!

Tomato salad was great. Beef tartare appetizer was great. The last couple of tables up against the kitchen "wall" and in the back had a great view of the dishwashers. Including employees scavenging food, messes noise and commentary - a screen needs to be installed! The Lime smashed potatoes were very good (not very smashed, but that didn't stop us from eating them all!. Service was exceptional. Wine selection was wide enough to be all-inclusive and yet not so large as to be overwhelming. Thanks,

Our waitress was amazing! She went above and beyond as to work with us and get us what we would enjoy the best. I had the prime rib eye, and it was cooked to exactly what I had asked for. We also got foie butter on the side, which was excellent as well. Overall, we had a spectacular time!

My wife and I were visiting Denver for a long weekend to celebrate her birthday and we ate at Guard and Grace based on TripAdvisor reviews. I was a nice dinner with very good service. When I made the reservation I noted it was a birthday celebration and everyone we interacted with at our table wished my wife happy birthday, which was a nice touch. The menu is quite nice with a lot of interesting dishes - not your typical steakhouse fare. The food was well-prepared and good; however, not as good as a recent celebration dinner at Morton's although Morton's is quite a bit more expensive. We would eat at Guard and Grace again if we find ourselves back in Denver.

Visited for our first anniversary. The bar was great and social hour had good drink specials. Dinner was simply amazing. They recognized our special celebration more than once and the steak is the best I have ever had. They never rushed us - it was simply perfect. Please visit if you can!

The service was simply the best I've had in Denver for a long time it seems that every restaurant I go to in Denver is completely staffed with hipsters I'm not cool enough to be a hipster it was really nice to have a normal hard-working clean-cut staff

We went to have a great steak as that is their specialty. Ordered the prime cut filet and the cut was good but they added a touch of some type of sauce that masked the true beef flavor. At this price point, we will return to the best prime house in town, Del Frisco's.
