WOW! – Being able to sit in the bar area on a busy weekend night is usually unheard of! The Chinook Tavern had a large community table in the bar that was perfect for me and my girlfriends.The Wasabi crusted halibut was amazing! The bartender, Christopher even came out from behind the bar to wait on us and I haven't had such great service in a long time. We had a great time and are thinking of making it a regular stop for the "Wild Women"!!

If You're Not Satisfied, They'll Scream at You! – My fiance and I popped into the Chinook, famished. I've lived in Denver all my life, and never heard the place mentioned. We were initially pleased by the relaxed and warm atmosphere, but the charm began to wear off after sitting unattended for about ten minutes. When at last our server sped by, we blurted out a request for mussels and a glass of wine. My pinot arrived, and I found it very palatable. Another server dropped off the steamed mussels. They were ice-cold and about the size of houseflies. We endured. We were very hungry. My fair companion ordered the liver, and I ordered a filet. The entrees arrived and my Fiance found hers satisfactory. My filet was criss-crossed by thick strata of gristly tendon. I think a $30 steak should cut easily, but I really had to lean into it. I gave up and sent it back, in a friendly and casual tone. I asked for a 1/2 portion of liver in exchange, and told the server it wasn't a big deal. My fiance finished her meal, and 20 minutes passed. I decided it was time to write this one off - we headed for the hostess' station and asked for the check. I was presented a bill by the manager, which included the cost of the meat I had sent back as inedible. He became quite strident when I suggested that I was not about to pay for the low-grade beef that I had left virtually untouched. Accustomed to professionals who take things like this in stride, I was shocked and amazed as he began to argue and berate me for not enjoying the miserable, overpriced fare. I insisted that I just wanted to pay for what we had consumed - I wasn't looking for a comp, I just wanted to go home and have a sandwich. The owner was visibly enraged, shaking his head and muttering. Just being located in Cherry Creek doesn't cut it. Some people still insist on service and quality. Next week we're going back to Prime 121, where the prices are comparable, the service is impeccable, and the kitchen doesn't release sub-par filet...

Best Halibut and mojito martinis! – Can't go wrong dining at Chinook, fun atmosphere, great staff and great food. Halibut is outstanding and you don't want to miss out.....you must have one of the mojito martinis!

So many fun flavors – Ya, I heard that coment, winning an American award with German food.... Well, true enough, there is a German tone here, but a pretty good American meal can be found at this Cherry Creek cornerstone. My wife loves to go here with her 2 for 1 birthday deal they send you if you become a member of their mailing. She loves the sausage and potato appitizer which is plenty for her meal. I then try something different every visit. The only meal I wasnt crazy about was a German dish. Since, I have found plenty of other good choices. I'm not knocking the German dishes, I see others really enjoying them, they are just not my thing. Too sour, I think. If they look here..... try some rabbit dishes....Deserts are nice and the service is just fine. Parking is a scam these days in Cherry Creek, but it seems to be the way of lots of places. Go for it. Try parking over at the mall. Shop a little, go for a nice walk, have a nice meal, walk some more.

A Wonderful Thanksgiving Experience – Our family decided to try something different this year so we spent our Thanksgiving holiday having dinner at Chinook Tavern - one of our favorite restaurants. It was another wonderful experience. The restaurant was very welcoming and warm. Everyone made you feel special. Our waitperson was attentive and very knowledgeable about the restuarant, the food and the wine. The food was delicious especially since they added a turkey dinner in honor of Thanksgiving! What a treat! We will definitely come back and spend other holidays at this lovely restaurant.

Not much bang for your buck – After several years I returned to the Chinnook Tavern hoping for a nice dinner, but was once again disappointed. The ambiance is quite good, even though the tables are too close together and infringe a bit onto your personal space. The food was quite good, but far from excellent, yet overpriced. But what really put a big damper on the evening was the service (or lack thereof). The waitress seemed to be almost annoyed to be at work. It took her forever to take our order, and then brought the wrong beverages. No apologies, no smile, no interest in the customer whatsoever. On top of it they charged us $1.00 for a parking token, which I feel should be complementary for a $100 dinner tab for two. Now I remember why I haven't been to the Chinnok in several years....

Excellent for business – I take my clients here whenever I need to impress, and Chinook never disappoints. Since I work nearby, this is the most convenient and tasty way to keep my clients happy. Schnitzel, sausage, it's all very good.

SIMPLIY THE BEST - PERIOD - END OF STORY – I travel frequently, and this restaraunt out-does them all! What a magnificent suprise you will encounter in Cherry Creek when you find it! Great Food, Great Service, Great Bar (I am now a frequent member of the bar scene. LOL), Great People (Even the patrons who frequent Chinook Tavern are great). I can't say enough. Chef Marcus does an excellent job and I look forward to both his daily lunch and dinner specials. Don't miss out on this place. Bring a date or bring your friends and you will have a great time. The atmosphere and ambience are tops. Great job Chinook Tavern

How does a German restaurant win best American? Does that seem odd?
