Reviewed By MarkV709 - Colorado Springs, Colorado

My first visit and during a business lunch. Make a reservation, it gets filled up in a hurry. Very attentive staff and elegant setting with nice table cloths and table setting. Three of us had the trout which was very good and a good portion and set over some wilted greens as if it were a salad topper. Seemed lonely. Another had the burger and fries which he thoroughly enjoyed and the other had a salad which was applauded by him. All in all a very nice lunch meal. A bit pricey for my kind of lunch but I did not pick the place. You'll be very happy here with the service and food. Four star rating only because of the value.

Reviewed By 2lucky1 - Big Lake, Minnesota

Cute little outdoor walk up ice cream shop located next to Linger Eatuary Restaurant. Parking Lot across street charges $5, monitored closely. We were lucky to get free street parking spot mid day during week. Staff was THE nicest, offered samples before purchasing. Hands down the smoothest ice cream with perfect flavoring. The cones were so fresh, surprised by this as it was served outdoors. Small patio seating available. They donate to a charity for each scoop served (forget). Highly recommend!!!

Rupert's at the Edge

Reviewed By Sebbyboy - Flower Mound, Texas

Visiting from DFW area where I go to breakfast once per week with several other retired friends - two of us been doing so for 4 years all over Dallas/Fort Worth area. A breakfast guru you might say. Now I also try breakfast places in Denver with my Denver daughters retired father-in-law when visiting 3-4 times per year.

Went to Ruperts at the Edge during week and sat inside. I had stuffed breakfast poblanos and added biscuits. Friend had breakfast burrito. My breakfast was excellent in all respects save for the poblano itself - I absolutely love chiles of all type and consider myself quite knowledgeable on Chile rellenos, stuffed poblano, Hatch chiles.....even been to Hatch Festival). The poblano at Ruperts simply did not seem roasted and was lacking in the typical bold flavor. The pepper also seemed far too firm - perhaps undercooked or even raw. Repeat - all other aspects of my breakfast (eggs, sauce, biscuits...) all very good. And my friend enjoyed his burrito with a lovely roasted pork inside. I sampled his burrito and agreed it was above average. Biscuits are heavenly. Service excellent and ambiance good. Prices perhaps a tad high but in light of menu variety, quality and service, I am okay with pricing. I would try Ruperts again. Would have rated a 4(out of 5) if not for the poblano pepper issue. Parking can be a challenge.

Yak and Yeti

Yak and Yeti Restaurants are full service restaurants and brewery, featuring award winning Indian food and beer, made right on the premises. You will love our comfortable atmosphere; great for lunch, after work drinks with friends, dinner with the family but also special enough for just that certain someone. We do offer Vegetarian, Vegan or Glutton Free options on our menu.

Reviewed By TravelerBabs - Phoenix, Arizona

The food is definitely four or five stars, but the service and ambiance are two or three stars. The food was delicious, and they had lots of options for vegetarians/vegans. However, the waiter seemed put-out when we had questions or needed something. As far as decor ... well, what decor? And it's very loud inside. Overall, I'd order food from here again, but I'd probably get it to go. That's a shame because it has a TON of potential to be a really cool place.

West 29th Restaurant

Reviewed By KathrynAugust - Lakewood, Colorado

We do enjoy this restaurant, but we were just slightly disappointed this time.

First, the man who seated us was not very friendly or welcoming.

Second, I was highly disappointed with my "classic" Eggs Benedict. (I am writing this review mainly to warn others that it this is NOT a classic Eggs Benedict in that the English muffin was some kind of rye/pumpernickel -- I think that is what is was anyway -- and I definitely did not like that.) However, it was cooked perfectly, as has been all the food we have tried so far. My husband's corned beef and eggs were cooked exactly to his liking.

Oh, and just one other small suggestion -- the fruit cup was very good, but it would have been better to either peel the orange or use a different kind of fruit.

And our waitress was very friendly and efficient (although we did have to wait about five minutes for her to ask if we wanted any kind of beverage besides water), and the coffee, as before, was the BEST coffee we have ever had in any restaurant.

Just PLEASE either clarify on the menu what kind of English muffins are used or else use the plain or sourdough kind!

Passing through Denver with our pup during lunch and we happily found Colorado +. Nice patio in front with several picnic tables. Very dog friendly staff as they brought bowls of water to the couple of dogs there. Burgers were excellent and a great selection of beer. Location is handy as it’s not far off I70 and I76. Highly recommend!

Abrusci's Fire & Wine

Abrusci's Fire and Wine is a family-owned and operated business. The owners and general manager live locally and have been together in business for 16+ years. We recently moved from 32nd/Youngfield to 22nd/Youngfield and are proud to own our own place, designed with customer service in mind. There is seating in our main dining room including at our pizza bar as well as indoor/outdoor seating in our bar and patio. The menu is similar to our Italian menu from our former location but now we have expanded the appetizers and included a bar/patio only menu to continue after the dining room closes. Our brunch is on Saturdays and Sundays only when we open earlier, serving brunch from 9am through 4pm. We are also taking reservations for parties 5 and over, otherwise it is first come, first served with open seating in the bar. Please be considerate of our neighbors when you park. The City of Lakewood encourages neighborhood parking versus large parking lots so we are doing our best to be good neighbors ourselves.

We visited Fire & Wine with our family for the second time. The ambiance of the restaurant is very good, including the outdoor space. The wine and beer selection is very good. The menu selection is on the small side, but everything we have tried has been excellent. Family favorites include the rigatoni with sausage, chicken wing appetizer, Parmesan Truffle fries and Mama T pizza, not to mention the Wedge salad. All in all, a very nice venue and one we will visit again.
