Guard & Grace Ratings and Reviews
This was only my second time at Guard and Grace and it was just as amazing as the first time. I chose this spot for my birthday dinner with friends and it did not disappoint. We started with the lamb ravioli and it was wonderful. I then went with the 4oz angus filet mignon, medium rare. Fantastic! Everyone loved their dishes. The short ribs are amazing also. Our sides were the brussel sprouts, the best ones I have ever had and the chipotle lime smashed potatoes. Everything was amazing. The drinks were spot on also. All accompanied by great service. Will definitely be back.
My boyfriend and I celebrated Valentine's Day here and truly enjoyed our experience. The food was absolutely outstanding, particularly the truffled gnocchi! Chad was friendly and on top of his game. The in-house sommelier (I forget the wonderful lady's name) was knowledgeable and helped us find the perfect wine for the occasion. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to treat themselves to a memorable night out!
After hearing many great reviews about this place we thought it would make a nice date night. Boy were we wrong. This seems to be very much akin to your typical overpriced chain steakhouse like Capital Grill. The service was fantastic. The appetizers and drinks were pretty good too. However the $74 ribeye would have been just OK if it had been cooked to medium rare like I ordered, but instead it was purple through most of it. My husbands $64 New York strip was cooked OK but tasted bland and boring. I seriously believe outback would've served a better strip steak. They did offer to put mine back on the grill, but they were also happy to let me keep it. We won't be returning here. It was simply entirely too expensive for mediocre food. There are many much better places in the city.
I am Celiac and our waiter and entire wait staff was amazing. I had a ton of gluten free options and everything they brought they made sure I could have it without it being a "thing". They even surprised me with a gluten free dessert to follow my lunch. Great decor, wonderful staff and delicious food!! Recommend ten times over.
Amazing service from host, to sever Jake. Staff works great together. Seamless. We got honest options from our server who wasn't trying to upsell on everything. Noted that we were celebrating our anniversary and we were brought 2 glasses of bubbles. Can't say enough how great the service and food was. Beautiful decor too
G&G was phenomenal! We are visiting Denver and booked reservations here for a late dinner. Service was extremely attentive without being overbearing.
We ordered the wood fired carrots and wood fired octopus. Both were amazing! For dinner we each got a 4 oz. steak. This is the perfect size that allows you to also order sides and not leave feeling overly full. I had the prime filet and it was out if this world! Plus I paired it with their mushrooms and brandy peppercorn sauce for an extra boost of flavor.
Would highly recommend! Pricing is also incredibly reasonable for the service, ambiance and quality of food you receive!
The service was phenomenal. Beth our waitress was incredibly attentive and we had probably 3-4 other people who checked in on us, refilled water, etc...
The food was fantastic. The oysters were great. I had the scallops, which were to die for. We also had the crab cake and lamb ravioli which were delicious as well.
Their wine recommendation was perfect as well.
The service was especially good--friendly, attentive but not obsequious . We felt it was as good as any we have had in Denver. Very impressed with the valet attendant; he spotted us getting up and had the car waiting, seat warmers on and heaters going which was much appreciated on the cold, damp night. The filet was super tender and extremely tasty. The Scottish salmon was done to perfection. The house salad was a winner being nicely chopped and flavorful. It was a wonderful meal but one caveat: we couldn't really hear each other , as the table was large for three, and the noise level was fairly high
We had heard such great things about restaurant so we decided to try. Decor was very cool liked the bar area better than restaurant. Was loud and food was a little to "fancy" sometimes less is more. We continue to go to Ocean Prime as our go to nice restaurant.
We celebrated my husbands birthday at Guard and Grace and it was our first time there. We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Also, our waiter was great. The only complaints I have would be the hostess desk lack of greeting and friendliness as well as the timing and flow of our drinks and food.
Great Restaurant! One of my favorite in Denver and definitely my favorite steakhouse! The service is excellent. We sat at the bar to have some cocktails and decided to remain there for dinner and the bartenders were fantastic! Super attentive and just a great experience overall!
Excellent overall experience at G&G! I don't normally go with the steak when eating out, but this was more than worth it. Server and staff went above and beyond in accommodating for one of us with celiac and other dietary restrictions. Looking forward to coming back!
Exceptional service, exceptional food. Now considered the best steakhouse in the Denver area, the food is the best and prices are very reasonable compared to the other top steakhouses in Denver. When my wife and I left we both said this is our "new favorite restaurant in the Denver area"
This was a great pick for our 20 Year Anniversary! Guard and Grace did a wonderful job of making it special and providing the best quality of food and wine. It was the best filet that my wife had ever eaten and the recommendation of the black cod was amazing! We can't wait to go back!
