Mediocre – Nothing great. The only awful dish was the veal. The rest was subpar for the price - there weren't any palate teasers for sure. The service was VERY good, which was the only redeeming quality of the dining experience. Try something more interesting for the money.
Terrible Service - not worth the price – Space had potential to be a great restaurant. Dined last night to try something different. Service was terrible - didn't get water or someone to take a drink order for over 10 mins, plates were never cleared etc. Service is better at Chili's. Food looks great on paper was bland. Especially given the price points, big dissapointment.
Lamb Bacon!!!! – Had a fabulous experience in Baur's yesterday. I a lamb dish, which included house cured Lamb bacon, wow! It was to die for. Also, my service was top notch. You can really tell the manager knows what the customer needs. Never had a empty water glass, the staff was very attentive. The wine list a++. KUDOS.
Great old building serving good food – I had lunch at Baur's yesterday, mostly because I love architecture and the owner, Sammy Labato, has restored this wonderful old building. In fact, as I was waiting to be served and was alone, he brought me a book ot its history and of the Baur family. I had a caesar salad which was good, the croutons was the best part. Then came the dagwood, a large kaiser roll with moist chicken breast, ham and melted provolone topped with tomato. The spicy mayo was perfect with this sandwich. Salad was $8, sandwich was $10.
Victory is no longer there! – We thought we'd go eat here because we had the entertainment book but the restaurant is not there anymore. It's now Baur's Ristorante and the entire management has changed. So, no more Victory!
Excellent service and food – Baurs was our choice for NYE 2008 and everything was exceptional. We picked Baurs because of their reasonable prices and they offered the full menu, not a limited, high price menu like most restaruants in Denver.
The server did not rush us and we felt very welcomed. The steak and pork loin was the best I have had in a long time. Baur's is perfect for a formal affair or can be a casual experience.
I'd take man8ape's review with a grain of salt. – I haven't eaten here in quite some time and I'm giving it an average rating, but it might have changed. But I am warning you that you might take man8ape's review with a grain of salt. This restaurant and Sams#3 are owned by the same people, and are located directly around the corner from Rialto Cafe. Funny, man8ape has only reviewed 3 restaurants all on the same day. (as of 2007-10-24). Giving this and Sams excellent reviews and a bad one to Rialto.
Killer Food: still on trial... – okay, so i came on line to do what i never do... write a review. seriously who has the time? but i had to share the great experience i had at the victory! yet when i got to city search and looked up the victory i was astonished at some of the harsh reviews. and then i looked at the dates. this place must have made a 180 degree turn around from a year ago. seriously. the menu is GREAT (and i never capitalize). the food is DELICIOUS. the decor is BEAUTIFUL. and the service is OUTSTANDING. what a find. i will be a regular for a long long time!
Nothing special – To tell you the truth, the only reason we went here was because we had a coupon. Well, maybe we didn't order the right thing, but I feel I could of got a better sandwhich at Denny's. I had ordered the Dagwood Club which was hard, dry and burnt. Our dinner rolls tasted like they hadn't been defrosted all the way. The service was very prompt and helpful but for a $10 basic sandwich I would have expected a little better quality.
Try the Fool's Gold. Seriously. Try it. It's very good. You'd be a fool not to. – We were in Denver visiting friends and decided to top up our bellies with some tasty food. We walked around a while in the snow looking for a decent place to pull up a chair. Everything we came across seemed so inadequate that we almost gave up. Then, just when we were about to (seriously) we found Victory. How could we not try this place? With a name like Victory, it's a sure win. And boy-howdy it was!
I remember 5 wonderful things about Victory:
1) The wine . Try any wine on the menu, you can't go wrong. I'm a wine freak and this was a great selection.
2) The atmosphere. What a cool old building! Very nicely re-done while keeping the original charm.
3) The service. Even though it was crowded (not a surprise), we were promptly seated and our server was extremely polite. She was so patient and nice in putting up with my husband and his sharp negotiating skills (see below).
4) The Fool's Gold.
5) The Fool's Gold. And, the price IS negotiable! What fun! It's food fit for a King. THE King.
I'll definitely be back for more.
Go eat at Victory. You're sure to be a winner.
