Perfect Girls in the city night – So my girls and i like to have our girls nights and this is the perfect spot for some good drinks, good food and a great vibe. Location is great also!
Not a good mix – This place is beautiful! Unfortunately Asian and Latin dont mix...at least not here. It may have had a chance if it were in a high traffic area catering to tourists that dont know any better, but when your'e tucked away in Denver with no foot traffic, word of mouth is BIG. And my mouth says NO!
Great Overall – A friend took us here for the first time and the overall experience was great. Our server was very attentive and made sure we had clean plates for all of our various entrees as we ordered several items off the menu. The mojitos were refreshing and unique, the food exceeded our expectations. All of the food we ordered was inventive and creative as well as delicious from the calamari, lobster dumplings to the pork tenderloin and the black cod, everything was made to perfection. We also enjoyed our dessert in the lounge where we enjoyed more cocktails as well. The dessert coffee they offer is wonderful, the scent of it alone lures you in. The chocolate ancho chili cake was creative and unique and satisfies any sweet tooth. We loved our experience here so much we took our mom here for her birthday dinner a few weeks later and received the same great service and the same delicious food. The food and drink prices are expensive, but the food and service was worth it. I definitely recommend this place for special occasions.
Best California rolls in town – My husband and I went for our anniversary and it was WONDERFUL. The best California rolls and Calamari in town. Would recommend this for anyone and a great place for drinks.
Posh Place to Start or Dine -Downtown, Denver – Zengo's Restaurant draws a sophisticated crowd. Enjoy Mojitos and apps. on the patio as the sun drops down behind the Rockies. Infront, lies a green lush park for a picturesque setting. It is a place to show your stuff and people watch too.
Drink, laugh, talk it up while enjoying a pan-asian cuisine at posh place. The staff are fun friendly local Denverites, they will get you whatever you need, just ask. Staff checks in with you continuously to asure that you are satisfied.
Been here many times over the years and have made plans to go here for special occasions. It is just a nice place to start with drinks and apps outside, or eat inside it's chic too.
Additionally, WALKING DISTANCE off 16th st. mall (or cheap cab fare) from downtown bars, breweries and everything else entertaining. Go.
Best pre-game spot!! – My boyfriend and I had dinner at Zengo last night before the Av's game and I absolutely loved it! Thank god we finally have something unique in Denver, definitely not your typical restaurant. We didn't get entrees, we shared a bunch of smaller dishes; the hamachi is amazing, the empanadas are suprisingly good, and we also had a mahi mahi taco special that was super tasty. I didn't totally love the table we seated at, you're a little close to your neighbor but the drinks and food definitely made up for it. We had mojitos which were delicious but did take a bit, probably because of the Av's game, it was really busy , I would make a reservation just to be on the safe side.
Not worth the hype – We wanted to try this unique-sounding restaurant during my R&R from deployment - sorry to say I wasted my time and money here. The service was unacceptable - the hostess was rude, our server was abrupt, and took far too long to receive our sushi. All servers and waitstaff were unnecessarily snooty. Food selection was limited, and entirely overpriced. We ordered sushi, which was below average in taste, considering the prices charged and the portions offered. We left before ordering an entree, due to the poor service and low quality of food, and continued our meal at Chedd's (which I highly recommend).
Avoid – Hip - yes; food - average; service - waitress was good - the others were horrible.
It was Sunday, the place was about 1/4 full & they couldn't get us out of there fast enough.
They were taking away dishes before we had even finished.
The cost is very high - spend your money some place other than here.
Great Food - Great Atmosphere – Virtually any choice from the menu will be a good one. The menu will please almost anyone and the drink choices are excellent. The bar area is nice for drinks and Riverfront Park across the street makes the area great for a post-dinner walk.
All show, doesn't deliver. – We went to Zengo with friends essentially because it is supposed to be rather "hip." Well, it is that...but that is pretty much all it was. We were seated promptly but after that things went down hill. The service was slow, the waitress was preoccupied. The ahi tacos that I heard were phenomenal....not even the best I've had in the midwest. The drinks were alright but slow in coming. None of us were impressed with the appetizers and only one in four enjoyed there entree. The consensus was "average" on the food. And for the quality, it's certainly not inexpensive.
If you are searching for something "different" like we were, search elsewhere.
