Territory Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Great location and easy to make a reservation on a Saturday evening.
It is inside the Hilton Garden Inn on Welton and 14th, near convention center.
Bonus: Free Valet Parking at the hotel...... ask restaurant to validate parking card
Food was reasonably priced (under $20 for entrees including 2 sides)
Not fine dining, but good quality, and at this price point it is a great value.
Plan to visit again
The service was excellent and the server was very helpful checking on gluten free options. The restaurant did not have a GF menu and there was nothing marked on the current menu. Unfortunately, many of the dishes used a base demi glaze that contained gluten (I take partial responsibility for not calling and checking beforehand).
The food was good, but nothing that stood out. I appreciate the service and would try this place if I was downtown again. I would not recommend this place for anyone with a gluten allergy. While the staff is helpful, the menu limits options.
The service & setting of Territory was very good; unfortunately, the food wasn't quite there. The menu is appealing, but most of the food we ordered was mediocre and bland. Avoid the fettuccine and meatballs, which was the least flavorful. Nothing was objectionable, the food just wasn't very exciting.
This is not fine dining. It's a hotel restaurant that looks and feels more like a cheap diner connected to a sports bar. Unfortunately, there happened to be a Broncos game at the same time and it was really noisy. Also, they mentioned their computer system must not have been syncing with Open Table because they were surprised that I was able to make a reservation. The bartender felt bad for us and graciously served as our waiter but one of our orders got messed up. Food was so-so.
It's was ok. The meal wasn't what I thought it would. The service was very slow and the sad part about the whole dining experience was it wasn't busy at all just four tables and one person was handling all them. It was like a Fancy Denny's. I cant say I'll recommend this place to friends and family.
We met with some friends for brunch on Saturday after making reservations 24 hours in advance. The staff seemed particularly annoyed that we had children in our party and spent several minutes punting the responsibility for setting the table and choosing a server to handle us. The server, Aziz, was very inattentive and did not want us to order off the menu. He kept insisting we should just eat from the buffet which looked awful. At 10am, the "gravy" looked like a mixture of cheese wiz and canned dog food that had been microwaved no less than 100 times. Even if we had chosen the buffet, there probably would not have been enough powdered hospital-food style eggs to accommodate our crew. I even saw a young girl smacking her rock hard biscuit on the counter to try and open it for butter/jelly. The menu food was awful and Aziz dumped the check without offering to split it after a 45 minute disappearing act. We do not recommend Territory for brunch.
Worst experience we ever had. It was happy hour but we were there for dinner. The waitress did not come by to take our order after we had the initial appetizer and drinks brought and I had to get another wait staff to get us our bill. I was not impressed with what we ate nor the atmosphere either. We won't be returning.
Met a friend for a happy hour get together... Nice place for a casual drink or pre-drink before a downtown event. The appetizers were perfect as a happy hour vibe and also tasted great. Our server was attentive, kind and understood the meaning of a laid back happy our amid friends... certainly a place to return for another happy hour.
Super friendly staff, very nice interior, the food was yummy., and happy hour prices were on point
But overall the place was DIRTY, the floors were dirty my wine glass was dirty, The staff was so lax that often times we needed assistance and there was no one to help us.
Good happy hour food, service was okay. We were told which beverages were on happy hour and I ordered the house wine spritzer but server wasn't sure if they "had that". I explained what it was (house wine with club soda) and he brought me a glass of wine. Oh well. Then, he disappeared, so we weren't able to order anything else before happy hour was over. Then we were charged full price for the wine. Elk sliders were good and the street tacos were good. We were going to order the flatbread pizza on happy hour, but our server was MIA until after happy hour was over, so we didn't.
Needed dinner before an event and the 1000 pt bonus enticed me. The four of us were seated quickly. Drinks took 15 minutes. We asked for a food menu and was brought one to share among the four of us. 15 minutes passed and we were never asked what we wanted. Closed the tab with the bartender and went elsewhere.
This is the second time we had dinner here before concerts. They have a small bit interesting menu. Last time we had a burger and a chicken sandwich that were both very good. This time we had pizzas that were unique and tasty. Beer and wine selection is good. Staff is friendly. This becoming our favorite spot for a casual pre-concert bite.
I had made a reservation, which was completely unnecessary since we were the only ones in the whole restaurant. There were a few people in the bar. Even though I had made a reservation, there was no one to greet us. We waited awhile and when no one came, we walked in and found the table set for a larger group. Still, I was worried that they would not know to have a server come by, so I stood and tried to get the attention of people working in the kitchen. No one would look my way. After several minutes, a gal finally came out. After that the service was good, and the food was good.
The food was not very good & the service was beyond dismal. Really stupendously bad waitress who had no idea what was on the menu, who ordered what, we had to continually ask & ask & ask for anything. I would recommend skipping this place. Also - their online menu is dramatically different from what is on the actual menu - and not for the better.
Our server forgot drinks multiple times, and didn't bring two guests their drinks for almost 20 minutes. The restaurant was not full and there appeared to be enough staff. Food came out at all different times. Food was mediocre. Very harsh lighting in the restaurant, almost like a cafeteria. Extremely loud. Not the best dining experience. There are many better places in Denver for a meal!
Nice atmosphere, great service. Definitely feels more unique than just a hotel bar and restaurant. The picnic tables and people watching was great. Food was just okay....the sliders were dry and the Cesar salad was kind of blah. I would recommend going here for the just drinks and elsewhere to eat.
I suspect since it is in a hotel people stay away, it was extremely quiet on a Thursday night. Food was OK, appetizers were better than the main entrees. One of us had a salad that did not taste right, but it might have been the dressing, no problems ensued. It has been rated best happy hour and I would probably agree.
Seated quickly but I think our waitress forgot she had just sat us. After 15 minutes she took our drink & food order. The ribs were tender but the sauce was just OK & applied very sparingly. The pizza was literally uncooked. The cheese wasn't even melted and we had to send it back to go thru the oven for another 20 minutes. This whole visit had is disappointed in the fact that paid employees could care so little in the quality or experience.
We were surprised there weren't more people here on a Friday night! Maybe because it is not close to LoDo. It is a very pleasant atmosphere, and the location practically across the street from the Convention Center made it perfect for dinner before our concert at Bellco. The menu has a good variety of selections from appetizers to sandwiches to more upscale entrees. Our hamburgers were perfectly cooked, and the sweet potato fries were wonderful. Their beer and wine selection is quite good. We will go back next time we are in that area.
Very convenient to DCPA and the convention center. The food was really good and we were greeted and seated quickly. They extended their happy hour because so many reservations were running late due to bad traffic downtowns of that was a bonus. The only drawback was the service was slow and it didn't look like they were full or overwhelmed with tables. We had to ask for water refills twice and had to take the bill to the bar because the server didn't pick it up. Could've been an off night though - I'm definitely going to to give them another chance.
The food is delicious - - once the waiter decides to come over and take your order anyway. We waited nearly an hour to have our orders taken and we had to keep asking for water. Our waiter seemed annoyed that we kept drinking it?? We were the only people in the restaurant and saw our waiter only a few times in the course of 2 hours. If the waitstaff were better, this restaurant would be 100% great!
We've eaten at Territory before and had great food and great service, but this experience was quite different. When we arrived at the restaurant, there was no clear host/hostess area, so we waited for several minutes near the front before finally approaching the bartender to let him know of our reservation and ask to be seated. The staff that night seemed to lack any leadership from management, as nobody seemed to know who was taking care of which tables. The bartender started with us, after which another gentleman who appeared to be the manager helped us. After that, a waitress approached us to see if we needed any help, and then another waiter stopped by and took care of us for the rest of the evening.
The tenderloin tips salad and herb crusted salmon were very good, but the Cobb salad was disappointing. It appeared to be a large mound of greens from a bag, with few toppings. Given the price point for the salad, it should have had better quality ingredients and more toppings.
As mentioned above, the service was a bit sporadic all evening. When our waiter delivered the food, he spilled dressing on the table and left it there for the duration of our meal. This is not a big deal, but it would have been nice not to have a splat of dressing drying on our table while we were eating.
We will likely give Territory another chance, though. Despite this experience, the food has been mostly very good, and it's clear to me that the staff wants to be helpful and provide good service; this was just an off night. The team needs a manager that will direct who is doing what, and also find a solution to the lack of a reception/hosting area. We watched at least 3 other parties of diners come into the dining room and walk around in search of someone to seat them, so this is something that needs to be addressed.
Our first experience here was so great we booked again. Unfortunately, the second time around was much less enjoyable. I had been dreaming about the Bourbon Bison Burger since I had it on our first visit. Hands down the best burger I ever had. But this time, it was overcooked (we asked for medium and it was very well done) and overall dry and tasteless. We were headed to a show so didn't have time to reorder. And even if we'd wanted to, our server went MIA most of the meal and we had to make requests more than once to other staff in her absence.
The wings and other food were still delicious and the drink specials still a great deal. But I'm not sure how soon we will be going back after the disappointing experience we had this time. Which is a shame because we really liked the place.
Definitely a hotel eatery. The decor was very...utilitarian.
The wine list was very restricted but fairly priced.
Likewise the dinner menu was limited but attractively priced.
Not really the date night experience I was hoping for.
We each had the gluten-free pizza, and they were both pretty good. We enjoyed them.
The service was hot and cold. The wine server was good. The waiter seemed to not care to work there.
I'd return for an inexpensive business dinner.
We were there for restaurant week. The menu looked really good but didn't seem to be representative of the regular menu. The soup offering was good and the two people in our party said that the beef tip entree was good. The fish entree was overcooked. Both the fish and the beef tip entrees were nicely presented. The meatloaf entree arrived on a plate with a plopped down, side of mashed cauliflower and a little smear of sauce. The meatloaf looked like a hockey puck and tasted like a dried out burger with some jalapeno bits in it. Honestly, it looked like a cafeteria meal.
