We had lunch at The Kitchen. Our salmon salad was nice, but not special. The wine we had chosen was good. Service was very good, friendly and efficient. Prices are on the high side for the quality, but that is probably because of the prime location on 16th Street.

Went here for dinner after it being recommended.

Took 45 minutes for the starters to arrive. King crab and the ricotta tart. Not worth the wait. Not remotely fresh, insipid and tasteless.

Main course of Halibut was however delicious. Seemed as though it came from a different restaurant. Could not fault this dish.

They did not charge for the starters, so got points for that

This was our 2nd visit (we were here 6 years ago). We were excited to return. Sadly, the service was OK. We each had a cocktail and would have liked to order a glass of wine when our dinner came, but our waitress disappeared until we were nearly finished.
We each had the greens salad - dressing very gods but it was $12 for a plain, normal-sized salad. We each had the bolognese, which had the right amount of spice, but again $19 for pasta with meat sauce.
Disappointed compared to our last visit. Tasty but not GREAT. :(

My grown daughter and I stopped in Denver for lunch on our way across the USA. We sat outside since it was a warm, sunny summer day. I got the falafel plater, which was excellent and my daughter got the salmon salad. She forgot to mention to put the dressing on the side, which would have made it better so she could put on only the amount of dressing she wanted (it came with too much dressing, which made the greens a bit wilty. All in all though, she enjoyed her meal as well

We dropped in because we couldn't find the restaurant we were looking for, with a very happy result. Good service. The menu is simple, which I like. Shorter menus mean better quality in my book. I had the Flatbread, but it was more like a Falafel taco. Very tasty. I added chicken, but didn't need to, it was a lot of food. My friend had the salmon which she said was perfectly prepared. The flatbread came with fries which I never get excited about, but honestly they were the best fries I've had in years.

Thank you so much for dropping in after not being able to find the restaurant you were really looking. We really appreciate that you liked the simple menu, "falafel taco", fries and good service. We hope you get a chance to come back in soon.
