A casual, family friendly neighborhood Italian restaurant. Long time local chef Matthew Franklin creates rustic Italian flavors at affordable prices where he believes in charging for the food, not the plate!

"Could not get away from the Linguine w/clams -- simply outstanding. And, we love the spumoni for dessert. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu."

"Back to my favorite meal - Linguini with Clams. This time, someone else in our party joined me. Both of us raved about the meal. I had the Beef Carpaccio - simply outstanding! Another raved about the Meatloaf. I don't think you can go wrong on the menu."

"First impression is that this place is dark, and noisy. We went for brunch but the choice was to order off the lunch menu or breakfast menu. The food was very good, service on the slow side, but the noise was so bad it was difficult to carry on a conversation. We were going to theater for which eating here is very convenient."

"This time I tried something new on the menu - Rigatoni with sausage. Another item to add to my growing list of favorites here. The rest of the group stayed with their favorites. Another great meal."

Rock Bottom is an exciting, lively restaurant and brewery featuring an eclectic menu at an affordable price. The service is friendly and energetic. Quality ingredients, talent, passion and innovation work hand in hand to bring fresh handcrafted beers with distinctive flavor from our on-site brewery.

"We dine here almost every time we visit downtown Denver for a play, orchestra, etc. We always have a very good meal with excellent service. This was no exception and this Rock Bottom far outshines the Park Meadows location. Great menu with many interesting choices. We especially like the salads and appetizers."

Café Colore offers welcome refuge from the busy pace of downtown Denver. Located in Lodo’s Writer Square, this neighborhood provides a perfect backdrop for casual fine dining in a Euro-style café with indoor and outdoor seating. You'll find an eclectic mix of customers - all drawn by the uptown food offered at easy-on-the-pocketbook prices. Better yet, the sidewalk seating faces both 15th and Larimer Streets, providing the best people-watching in downtown Denver. Everything served here is prepared to order, starting with doughs, sauces and dressings that are made from scratch daily. Furthermore, most pastas and all pizzas can be ordered gluten-free, so feel comfortable about bringing friends, coworkers or family members of every dietary need. Then prepare to be dazzled by the menu of marvelous pastas, pizzas, calzones, soups, salads, Italian entrees and desserts. Cafe Colore has won many accolades "Best Pesto Pizza", "Best Sit Down Pizzeria" and "Best Alfresco Dining" to name a few.

"The waitress told us they have the best meatballs and she was correct! We came here for lunch on a Sunday, we have been here before for dinner. The server was friendly and attentive. The sandwiches were excellent - especially the meatball sandwich."

Located above the Wailea Tennis Center, Joes has panoramic ocean views on one side and vistas of Haleakala on the other. Internationally acclaimed Chef Bev Gannon masterminds the menu, while husband Joe Gannon is credited with the theatrical lighting and inspiration of this popular dining spot. <br /><br />Wonderful comfort food, with a gourmet streak such as slow roasted prime rib, with mashed potatoes, our BBQ ribs, and Joes favorite meatloaf. Fresh local fish is also offered nightly including appetizers such as the ahi carpaccio and calamari. Don't forget about the "World famous crab dip"! The Seafood jambalaya with fresh fish, shrimp and scallops is another favorite. <br /><br />Children are welcome, offering a fun kids menu and special drinks like the green gecko. <br /><br />One of Wailea's best Mai Tai's, crazy martinis, and and exceptional wine list from well known producers as well as smaller boutique wineries.

"After reading some of the reviews for this restaurant, we approached with trepidation. However, we had recently arrived and did not feel like going out for a meal. We were pleasantly surprised. As far as most hotel restaurants go, we thought this one stood above most. There was quite a wait to be seated but we were seated within a few minutes of our reservation. The service was very good as was the food. Of course, what makes most of the restaurants in this area memorable is the view and this one doesn't disappoint. We also ate the breakfast buffet here later in our trip. As buffets go, it is pretty typical. What impressed us was the price for "seniors". This has to be the bargain of the Island. Highly recommend it."

"Nothing more to say, really. Probably the best steak I have eaten. Certainly the service was at the top of the list. Our party of 4 raved about the meal in all respects. Expensive, but when it is this good, it is worth it."
