Definitely a unique and intriguing menu. Hearty and delicious combination of southern flavors. Deviled eggs appetizer. First time I have ever seen sweet potato gnocchi on a menu, and it was delicious. They also seem to have lots of Colorado Rockies game day specials available.

Went here during lunch hour with 5 of my co-workers. One had been there a few years back and was a little nervous but everything was far beyond expectations. The food was delicious and beautifully plated, the beer list was solid and the service was kind. Thanks!
Have nothing but incredible things to say about The Lobby! Great food, great service - what more could you ask for? Went for a bachelorette party with 7 girls and the waiter was great and everyone left raving about it - would love to return to try more things on the menu (recommend the chorizo, french toast, and gnocchi - oh! and the mimosa tower)!
Car bomb French toast was the bomb.

I had a trainer of your new staff as my waitress. She should not be training. Waited 10 min for water from another person. Five more min for our drink orders. Five more to get said drink. Food came out fast so that was a plus. Crabby patty Benny... Fail. Soft and watery crab cake. Your house potatoes are smashed tater tots. Eggs on both our dishes were cooked wrong. I ordered poached on my Benny. They came out hard. Friend ordered over east and got scrambled. Value of this place is non existent. Wish I had gone to Ophelia's. The building and decor and quaint patio are the type of quintessential place I like to dine. Sadly the Lobby failed on so many levels I may never be back.
Delicious and Quaint
The courtyard was beautiful with flowers and ivy growing everywhere, and the cutest sleepy resident cat. Happy hour was fantastic...we had four drinks, two apps, and two small plates for $50 - the grilled romaine was fabulous. I've dined alot around Denver and this is one of my faves, top three.

Great mimosa towers and fun eats! Loved the entrance and outdoor courtyard.
Overall Awful Experience
We had to wait 30 minutes to sit in our reserved table. There was a table of 30 next to us in the basement and my table could not hear each other. When we asked to sit in the empty table upstairs they would not let us. We were charged $3 extra for each additional mimosa yet were not told this upon ordering. One credit card was charged 4 times and then was only credited back twice. The food was mediocre at best. The mimosas were extremely juicy and they would not let us do less juice.

This is a great place for big parties. They accommodated us even when we had extra people show up that weren't part of our reservation. The only drawback was that the mac 'n cheese tasted like it had nutmeg or cinnamon on it...not appetizing at all.

Great food and mimoso's. Loved the atmosphere and people helping us.
The food was sub-par and way to noisy
We went to the Lobby because we read they had a good brunch. So we thought we would try it. There were two items on the "brunch" menu. We ordered breakfast which was not hot or tasty. The noise level was so high we could not hold a conversation. I'm sure it had something to do with the bottomless mimosas. After we left we actually went elsewhere to eat since the food wasn't satisfying.
Good... But a Few Caveats
While the service was friendly and courteous, it felt as if they are a bit understaffed and overwhelmed. We went for brunch, apparently in Denver bottomless mimosas are a city-wide thing for brunches, so I'm not sure why the group nearby couldn't "hold their liquor" (if such a thing can be said about mimosas) I'm all for adults having a great time--but this was more like 12-year-olds had gotten into the liquor cabinet... The food was good enough, but perhaps overly weighted in the direction of "fun" (if you read their menu, their claim is fun food and serious drinks) just not enough execution of the dishes--they didn't live up to the menu descriptions. On weekends, be prepared for a loud college/hipster crowd (who must come for the cheap mimosas rather than the food). If you can afford better, do.
We got in for one of the last reservations for Sunday evening. The waiter was super friendly, funny, knowledgeable and overall was a nice guy! The food was amazing and we will definitely come back, next time for brunch!
And a good time was had by all
We came for Bruch with my Mother and had a wonderful time. My children have been there several times and decided to take my Mother and I.

First time here. Dinner experience took over an hour and place was dead. Server had no sense of urgency. No one at the desk for seating when we talked in. Sat and waited almost 10 minutes until the server came. Took almost 10 minutes to get drinks. Food took a normal amount of time to come out and was pretty good. Never actually got a check, had to flag down the manager and have him just run our cards. Not impressed by this "amazing place" at all.
My favorite Brunch spot in Denver!
I absolutely love coming to The Lobby for brunch! Especially if you are with a big group, they have plenty of big tables to fit everyone! Also they have bottomless Mimosas for only $10 you can't beat it! They even have huge Mimosa towers if you have enough people in your group! So far my favorite thing on the menu that I have tried is the Chicken Fried Biscuits and Gray, it is a lot of food but it is heavenly!

Food was solid - menu concept is fun - corn chowder was YUM. My companions had the inferno burger that was not spicy and a chorizo burger where they couldn't taste the chorizo. Service was good.

Food was not very good, service was great but would not recommend as a good place to eat.
Come for the mimosas, stay for the mimosas
Had a great time here - we specifically chose the Lobby for the bottomless mimosas, and our needs were perfectly met. The wait staff is very fun and friendly, making the overall experience enjoyable. The one miss would be the French toast - it was quite soggy and paled in comparison to some of the other orders. The candied bacon, on the other hand, is a must!

It was a fun, semi low-key feeling to it. I took my boyfriend out just because and it was perfect. The environment, the vibe completely matched him. It's similar to the Chicago vibe that he loves. He's very big into breakfast and their bottomless mimosas and the food. Spot on. Definitely something I wish I knew about during the summer when we were wondering what we wanted to do early morning.
Waitress very attentive. Food awesome. Homeless folks outside very distracting. Music a bit too loud. Patio looks lovely for summer...hope to return then.
We visited this restaurant for brunch. Very reasonably priced bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary's. The food was great!! The portions are just the right size, not too much food. Great service!
Bad food, good service.
The food was horrible, cold with no flavor. Also very greasy. Not good for anyone who cares about what they're actually eating for Brunch. Bottomless Mimosas were great, and TRULY bottomless. Like a ton of refills. Service was also wonderful, and the waitress was really nice and let my group of 5 sit for a few hours.

Great place, long wait, reservation didn't quite work, but they made up for it Good food and beer list
The brunch was excellent. Generous portions but not so big that you felt overly full. Bottomless mimosas and bottomless bloody Mary's were great - they do not stint on the drinks! Service was good. Some larger groups made it loud but we could still talk.
The Lobby Food is Tasty
We really enjoyed the atmosphere and location of The Lobby and will go back in the future. It was a Tuesday eve so service did seem a little slow and yet accommodated us really well once they knew we had a show to get to.
Manager very friendly and good service. Food is what was disappointing. Breakfast burrito was a bit cold and girlfriends chicken sandwich tasted like a pre made frozen sandwich.
Bottomless Mimosas -- need I say more?
Looking for a great brunch spot? Look no further. This place has everything you're looking for. A great deal on bottomless mimosas? Check. Awesome food? Check. A great ambiance? Check. Just make sure you make a reservation. This place is popular for a reason.

Very casual and easy going. Has a very strong old Dinner vibe
The food is terrific and the mimosas are so big a t-Rex could hold them!
Great brunch with great atmosphere
Love the atmosphere/patio. Drink specials are great. The food this time around wasn't phenomenal, but the staff was great in fixing our orders when we were having a few missing ingredients. Great day drinking spot.
Enjoyed brunch with a friend
Enjoyed brunch with a friend from out of town. It was a perfect place to meet. The bottomless drinks were great too. Worth coming back to.
What has happened
We used to go to the lobby more, but the food hasn't been great the last two times we've gone. This time around it was only warm when it came out and quickly became cold not even half way through. The mimosas are good, but the bloody's are OK.
I loved the ambiance, the patio is beautiful you don't feel like you're in the middle of the city!
Claire was our waitress. She was amazing! Good food, great service, cheap drinks. What's not to like?
service not up to par
Despite having made the reservations for a group of 12 nearly 2 weeks in advance, it seemed like the kitchen was still completely unprepared to handle it. Half the group did not receive their entrees until the first half was finished eating. Not cool. And worse, we were offered no apology from the manager for this.
Staff tries hard to make you feel welcome
The Lobby is located a bit off the beaten path downtown, which probably explains why they were not terribly busy at 7:30 pm on a Friday evening. They have a good size patio that makes you feel like you are dining in a park or someone's backyard. There were trees all around and grass – uncommon for most patios in downtown Denver. Since we were both feeling like beef and potatoes, we both ordered the Cheesy Steak and Potato, the only difference being the cooking of the beef. Our plates were delivered by the manager, and, as it turns out, were swapped. Not a big deal, but the waitress noticed when we were talking about the beef and immediately told the manager who quickly came to find out what was wrong. We simply swapped plates and said it wasn't a big deal, but the manager (Jason) seemed a bit embarrassed and brought us each a lemon-drop shot and a slice of cheesecake to share for dessert. The food itself met our expectations, but wow, the service and their desire to make us want to return really stood out.
Good food, good service, good deal, good beer selection. Will go again.
Great fun place!
Unique menu and fun food choices. Great service. Fabulous happy hour as well.
