The kitchen is close to Union station with a large outdoor patio along the sidewalk. The interior of the restaurant is large and nicely decorated with simple and elegant industrial-retro style. The mussels and the pasta bolognese were divine. Service was superb.

Nice place. Great food and friendly staff. Served by Shona who was lovely. Worth booking ahead. Varied menu with something for everyone. Price was in line with restaurants in the area.

Good food in a great spot on 16th street mall. We stopped in during happy hour and enjoyed some drinks and appetizers.

Fortunately, The Kitchen in Denver does just that.

Went with a party of 6 at 7pm on a Friday night. Hip location in LoDo..

The vibe is New American. Wood tables , metals chairs. Appropriate for locavore movement. Plenty of water provided in flip top bottles.

Service is well-trained and engagement, a big contributor to the five star rating.

Wine list was internationally varied, but not overwhelming, and fairly priced. We went with a nice Chianti from Castello di Ama for under $70. I am very familiar with this wine, and you don’t see it often in the US. Lorenza, who runs Ama, will be tickled when I see her in May.

Plenty of vegetarian options on this food lovers menus. Yes it has crispy Brussels Sprouts, and they are actually crispy and come woh a chili aioli. They also have terrific French fries. The chorizo and manchego appetizer was a hit, with some Marcona almonds and quince paste. The Kielbasa with prezlets was good, but was actually weisswurst, not kielbasa.

There is something to make any one happy on the mains. Two steaks, including the dry aged one I should have ordered it looked so good. Two pastas. A smoked chicken, an inventive lamb, and for the vegans a curry bowl. And it was all great.

Things were going so well we asked for dessert recommendations and went with Sticky Toffee pudding and an apple crisp. But one of my sons had to go with the deconstructed s’mores. The waiter gave warning that it wasn’t what is sounded like and was coming off the menu. My son insisted.

The sticky toffee pudding is an excellent rendition. The apple crisp was fair—a bit too sweet and the crisp a bit powdery. The s’morer, were indeed a disappointment. Heavy reliance on semifreddo just didn’t capture true s’more flavor. It should indeed come off the menu.

All in all, we have found our new go to dinner place in Denver.

The check with tip was about $500, and it felt very fair.

I hate giving bad reviews, but perhaps it is an opportunity for improvement. Our party ordered the two different steaks with many sides and a chicken dish with dumplings. The dumplings were actually biscuits which means they were soggy. The potato gratin was slimy and too watery. The brussel sprouts were on the edge of burned. The fish was too greasy and the chickens' sauce too bland. The steak was nothing special. For their prices, they need to do better as the staff is fun and the restaurants ambiance def a great one.
