    Our server, Andrew was very knowledgeable, funny and professional. It was our 18th wedding anniversary and the first time dining there. We both had the filet Mignon which was fabulous. We ordered the roasted Brussels sprouts which were seasoned with lemon zest, but in my opinion, to much zest to enjoy. The lemon was too tangy and had an overpowering vinegar flavor. Whipped potatoes were good. We ordered desert and they personalized it just for us, a nice touch. We would definitely go back. 8 years in the desert wine was fantastic, recommended by Andrew. Nice story to go with it too.

    This was an amazing restaurant experience from beginning to end. All of the staff were super welcoming and friendly!! They were very accommodating to our needs. We truly felt like we belonged and we were set out to have a great time with great food. The wine expert came by to help us decide on a bottle that would not only satisfy our taste preferences but enhance our dinner as a whole. Definitely coming back next time we’re in Denver!

    GO, just GO!!!! My wife and I like to fine dine. We had an extraordinary experience yesterday so decided to come back. Jonathan provided wonderful service and secured our next day Rez. Day one I had the filet flight (Wagu, grass fed and prime 4 oz each) which was incredible. My wife enjoyed the black cod. Wine list excellent. Day two wagu ny strip and vegetarian pasta plus more wine. Can’t say enough about this restaurant. Truly enjoyed both nights! If you can get a table go. Ask for Jonathan!

    What an absolutely wonderful evening! Great place to celebrate our anniversary. We ordered the shrimp cocktail, Caesar and wedge salads, tomahawk steak, broccolini, and smashed potatoes. Everything was superb. The sommelier recommended an excellent bottle of wine and our waiter, Justin, was fantastic. Definitely the perfect place to celebrate!

    Food was too salty. The back room at the end of the restaurant where we were seated was ugly with two beverage refrigerators in the corner. Waitress was fantastic thus saving the experience. Check in staff failed to tell waitress it was our anniversary but wished us a happy anniversary on our way out the door.

    The food was as always, consistently outstanding. I had the French onion soup to start with, and a filet with asparagus for the main course. Kayla was our waitstaff professional and was exceptional. People always make the difference and the staff across the board was wonderful.

    Good food with sizeable portions. Wine took really long to get to the table. Fire alarm went off several times during our dinner and because it is such a big building, they couldn't get it under control. But it was unnerving. All of that said, it wouldn't deter me from going to dinner at Guard and Grace again.

    Phenomenal steakhouse. We were celebrating our buddys wedding post bachelor party. Our waitress Rachel was amazing. With recommendations, service, and etc. Top notch service and every table appeared to be getting same service. Wagyu was amazing, octopus was phenomenal, and dessert was mind blowing. Cocktails were great too.

    This is my go to Place when I want 5 star food and service. My wife and I started off with 2 crabcakes then main course had Bone in ribeye and Filet Mignon Med. Melts in your mouth and flavor perfect. Our sides were half size whipped mashed potatoes and half size Brussel sprouts . Whipped potatoes and brussel sprouts were amazing. The half sizes are huge!! In fact we couldn't finish the Brussel sprouts. We could of got half of half if they had them. Then we finished off with fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies. Make sure you go in Hungry everything is big! Our service was second to none. Our glasses were never empty. Our server was Joanna. She made us feel like VIP's from the time she said hello to the time we said goodbye. Never had such a great experience eating dinner. What I like most is While Gaurd And Grace is a classy high end restaurant with amazing food and service. Dress code is casual. You can either dress up to the nines or where nice shirt and shorts. The interior is beautiful and you and your wife or date can have quite romantic time. I come from California and this is always my go to Fine dining place in downtown Denver

    This place is pretty amazing. The sides that we tried were very good and a ton of flavor. We tried mashed potato and truffle macaroni and cheese. What is also good is that they offer half-orders of sides, such that you are not overfilling yourself. One of the cool features is the steak "flight", with 3 different cuts to try. Desert is pretty great too. We got to try a maraschino cherry cheesecake that had a very good flavor. Cocktails and wines are great too. The only small nitpick is maybe the fact that carrot that comes with the steak was a bit hard.

    We wish we could have been in the quieter back room. However, Jason did a fantastic job representing the front of the house - service was impeccable. The kitchen was a little delayed in sending out the steaks, but when the food came it was well worth the wait.

    Absolutely fantastic from top to bottom. Jason and his support staff took impeccable care of us and both the food and drinks were worthy of their lofty price tag. Three of us shared the filet flight (4oz Wagyu, Prime, and grass fed—most tender beef I’ve ever had), crispy Brussels, and chipotle potatoes. We also had a wedge salad and dozen oysters. Fabulous—highly recommend!
