Exquisite dining experience! – We've been to 1515 Restaurant twice and both times it's been a wonderful experience! The menu, the wine list and the service are all top notch. Gene Tang and his staff work hard to make sure you are pleased with every aspect of your visit. I highly recommend this establishment to everyone!
The best Food and Dining experience in Denver! – For the first time ever I had dinner at 1515 Restaurant. The experience far exceeded my expectations, awesome presentations, delicious food and fabulous wines. 1515 Restaurant is a treasure to behold! I was fat with satisfaction in every area of my dining experience.
Over priced and over stuffed – The hotel recommended this place and billed the menu as Americana. There was nothing American about the menu, they didn't even have a chicken option. Everything was over thought with far too much effort put into making it fancy. There were five of us in our dinner party and I was the only one whose dinner was edible. That was because I told them to leave the c**p off and just give me a steak.
They even had the nerve to ruin perfectly good chocolate by mixing it with foie gras, Sacrilege I tell you!!!!
the food is simply amazing – I stopped by 1515 restaurant this week for lunch after hearing great things from a friend, and it turned out to be a fantastic recommendation. Our server suggested that I order the kobe burger with a side of black truffle mayonnaise, which turned out to be the best burger I have ever had. I'm currently on a low carb diet, so I ordered the burger without a bun; however, the meat was so succulent that I forgot entirely that I was missing out on the bun. The burger was topped with pancetta and brie cheese, which were excellent alternatives to the standard bacon and american cheese. The black truffle mayonnaise was absolutely delicious. My wife had the seared salmon, which turned out to be delicious as well. Overall, the service was perfect, and the manager (cindy?) was very friendly. My wife and I will certainly return again.
I can't believe I haven't been to 1515 before – I have lived in Denver for a while and I was quite impressed and surprised by 1515 as this was my first visit. We went with the tasting menu (with wine pairings) and could not have been happier with every course. The service was not only thorough, but our waiter was quite knowledgeable about every course. Not just with the standard presentation that is to be expected with a tasting menu, but with follow up questions we had as well. The wine parings were creative and well done. I would put the food on par with some of the best meals I have had: creative, well presented, and some amazing combinations of flavor and texture. I would recommend 1515 to anyone and will certainly return again.
Absolutly exceptional – Whether you are looking for excellent service, amazing food and wine, or a great place to take your special someone, 1515 has is all, blended in due measure and with the utmost care. The whole experirnce was fantastic!
Best Kept Secret...Not For Long! – As most of you know, it is Restaurant Week in Denver, and it is my favorite week of the year! While the economy may have lowered our moods and our disposable income, this is the time that we can celebrate the fine cuisine that Denver has to offer and keep a bit of money in hand. It appears that Denverites are taking advantage of the amazing meals offered around town this week for only $52.80 for two ($26.40 for one). I have had a difficult time getting reservations at many restaurants. I was, however, fortunate enough to dine at a place I didn't even know existed until tonight. It is called 1515 and it is on Market and 15th in downtown Denver. The bar is on the ground level and one only needs to go upstairs to get to the dining room. The ambiance is lovely--urban chic, and the food is to die for, eclectic contemporary American cuisine! We had five people serving us all evening including the owner, Gene Tang, and the manager, Cynthia Aceves. The staff is some of the best I've found in this town and the menu for Restaurant Week is surprising and delicious. The restaurant's normal fare is even more so with Chef's Choice prix fixe, 5 or 7 course meals, with or without wine pairings, for cheaper than you could imagine. Oh, and have I mentioned the food is amazing? They even offer a wine pairing with the $52.80 menu with each course for only $15 more!
I am urging my friends to take advantage of Restaurant Week, which has been extended for an additional week at many of the restaurants including 1515. Times are tough in this industry and it would be a shame to lose such fantastic dining establishments such as this because of poor attendance due to the economy. This slump will be over in time and I hope we will be relatively unscathed her in Denver by still having our great restaurants in tact. Take advantage of Restaurant Week, try new places, return to the ones you love, and be sure to go to 1515 for a truly rewarding evening of fine dining. Let's keep Denver tasty!
Fine cuisine – 1515 was a great dining experience. It is a great place for a date! The service was attentive and friendly. I would definitely recommend getting the chef's tasting menu. We did the 5 course meal which had a great sampling of the chef's creations. The chef trained in Paris and also worked at Everest in Chicago. The food was fresh and creative with great flavors. I would recommend this restaurant!
Parking is validated if you park in the lot just past Qdoba on Market!
Great special occasion spot – Four of us tried 1515 for the first time earlier this week. We were celebrating our friend's birthday, so we splurged and enjoyed the five-course chef tasting menu with the wine pairing. All I can say is "FABULOUS!" From start to finish, each course was better than the last. The unusual flavor combinations were surprising and felt like fireworks exploding in your mouth! The dishes were well balanced and the portions were just right - there was enough to enjoy the outstanding flavors but we did not leave the restaurant feeling "stuffed" at all. The service was second-to-none as well - our head waiter (Matthew) was very pleasant and definitely knowledgeable about the food. He took our "special requests" without a second thought and passed them along to the chef. Other members of the staff also pitched in to offer seamless service. We certainly did not want for anything throughout the meal. I would definitely recommend 1515 as a place to go for a special occasion. I'm looking forward to going back and trying something from the "regular" menu - I'm sure I will not be disappointed!
Elegant Food in Comfortable Setting – 1515 was an incredibly enjoyable dining experience for our anniversary with some of the most elegant food preparation and competent wait staff in Denver.
We began with a terrific first course of asparagus with black truffles. The timing of food and beverages was perfect. Moments after finishing the first course a second round of drinks appeared followed by our main courses. The wife had a fresh and creative halibut dish with a basil reduction topped with crispy angel hair potatoes. I chose the buffalo strip with gnocchi, english peas, and mushrooms. Both dishes were culinary delights and wonderfully presented. We competed the meal with a creative "3 Cheese" cheesecake with lemon curd and fresh blueberries.
There are new restaurants coming and going in Denver all the time. 1515 has been right off Market and the 16th street mall for 10 years and somehow we had missed it. It hits all the marks for an elegant meal in a classy but comfortable setting.
If you are looking for a spectacular meal without the pretense I can not think of a better place that 1515.
