The Lobby - Denver Ratings and Reviews
The Lobby has a high-energy atmosphere. Bottomless mimosas that come in very large wine glasses (if you have a party of 5+ you can get the Mimosa Tower!). The courtyard area looks nice, it was too cold to dine outside, but it could be a great spot for brunch and to catch up with friends.
Overall, it was a great experience. However, i Was disappointed that I made reservations for 4 and they sat us at a table for 5. Extra chair and all. Weird to see multiple tables of two at booths for four- that are a little more intimate, but two top tables wide open. Outside that....drinks were great. Appetizers - brussel sprouts and croquets were a hit and the meals were delicious.
They gave my food to the wrong table but brought my friends. They had to make it again and when I got the Benedict the white of the eggs was sliding off the yolk so wasn't cooked right. Manager never apologized for that second part and just got defensive. Very disappointed and I had been there so many times.
I'm usually skeptical about restaurants that receive low ratings, but ALL of the low ratings for The Lobby are justified. The food was bad, the bathrooms were disgusting and the service was marginal. I should have known better when I was able to get a reservation an hour before we got there.
Made a reservation for brunch for a girls' get together. Staff was unprepared to deal with a physical disability and there are no elevators on site. Had to wait an extra hour just to get a table. Food was ok but the service was horrible. The hostess was plain rude. Our waitress was overworked and it showed. I won't be coming back.
I really enjoyed our brunch there. I wish I could have tried more food. I had the Cubano benedict and it was delicious. I also tried the Heuvos Burrito, it was good, but something was too sweet. It may have been in the burrito or the green chile, we couldn't tell. The food was good, It was not as great as I hoped. It was so loud there that my girlfriends and I had a hard time talking to each other. I will be back though to try other options on the menu. They take reservations which is a very big plus in my book.
Great brunch service - our mimosas were always full! They also have a great patio!
My only complaint is with the breads - my English muffin and my friend's biscuit were rock hard (hardly able to cut with a butter knife).
Overall, great experience. Just disappointed with the breads.
Overall, the experience and food was great! The initial host and bartender were nice and helpful. Our server was pretty slow, however. Our group had to pull her aside to ask to order and ask for our bill. Not a huge complaint though as she was still friendly and I know she was busy.
Tried The Lobby for Restaurant Week and was pleasantly surprised how good it turned out to be. While I had the prix fixe menu my date tried a couple of dishes from the main menu (mac & cheese and the car bomb French toast) and really liked them both. We didn't leave a bit of food on any plate; it probably looked like we hadn't eaten all week. Neat space, cheap parking across the street, great waitress with good drink suggestions...we will be back.
My friends and I decided to go for brunch on New Years Day. The Lobby has a very nice atmosphere- casual and cheery. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to the ambiance. We ordered the Cajun Benedict which, on paper, is a wonderful idea. Unfortunately, it came to our table lukewarm. The eggs were cooked as we had ordered, the browned butter hollandaise was ok, the fried green tomatoes, a little too thin to pack the "oomph" that you want from a well executed FGT. The grit cakes were rather bland and could use some seasoning. The most disappointing part of our meal, however, was the side of French toast we ordered. Our waitress went on and on about how wonderful the French toast was, but, when we tasted it, it was obvious that the toast had been premade and then warmed up again. It was dry and , frankly, just plain bad.
With limited space to explain why my experience was such a poor one, so I’ll get straight to the worst part. After difficulty and rudeness from the server with a couple of our drinks, we were ordering our food. My low maintenance vegan friend asked "What suggestions do you have for vegans?" after a blank stare, he replied "We don't have vegan food." She laughed and said "I'm sure you do; I was just wondering if you had any suggestions." His response, "Well, vegan food isn't real food." I was so offended by his actions up to this point that I interrupted this very productive conversation to ask "So you're telling me my friend can't eat here?" He replied no and walked away. Again, I’d love to go into all the gruesome details but I’ll just say, this was the worst service I’ve ever gotten and I won’t be going back.
We love coming to brunch here! They definitely get busy but the servers were very kind and honest about the time the food might take to come out and made sure we had drinks in the meantime! I love the mimosas and bloody Mary's and the beer list is impressive. I actually would prefer to have another round here and skip Great Divide!
I've been here a few times. The food is always good, service is awesome and they are very attentive. The manager was able to squeeze our party in a few days before I needed it and I really appreciated the help! If you have a large group, book further out and request a table upstairs or outsides. The downstairs area can be a little too loud, if i you have loud friends like i do! I'd rather deal with the noise than go to another place though.
I've had great experiences at The Lobby in the past and I still really enjoy going there for dinner and brunch. This visit, however, it felt like service was really slow. It took a while to get our meals to us (I also understand that we were a large group so that could have been the cause of the wait) and it wasn't always easy to locate our server when we needed him even though the restaurant was not crowded
