Acova is writing the next chapter of one of Denver’s great neighborhoods. An iconic locale in a historic district, Acova builds on the rich story of “The Northside” (now known as LoHi) by breathing new life into an address with soul. Even its name pays homage to its South Broadway sibling restaurant The Hornet, while tipping a cap to its storied Italian predecessor Patsy’s. The place you bring friends and family from out of town to show them what Denver’s all about. The place you go for that after work cocktail, or your go to date spot, whether it’s your first or 50th date. The place you get the group together on a Saturday night, and where you recover together on a Sunday morning. Acova is the next Highlands institution, bearing vintage flair and contemporary charm that threads the past into the future. Acova brings you back time and again because you are part of this story now, and Acova is part of yours.

    Even after I asked them to turn the volume down, the so-called "music" was so loud that it was nearly impossible to carry on a conversation without yelling. I would not eat there again because of that. It was unpleasant.

    AcovaResponded 1 day agoRaymond, Our goal is to resolve any issues with experiences prior to guests leaving. We accommodated your request for 2 of you to sit at a large table. We lowered the music at your request. We checked the volume with you, you said it was better. We would have happily lowered it again. A manager stopped by your table twice. Both times a great venue to express any discomfort. Better than a review platform which can be hurtful to our small business. John - GM

    Bartender Alex served us excellently. The stuffed poblano was surprisingly nice and spicy - YUM! My husband devoured his French toast and perfectly crisped bacon.

    My SIL is celiac. We read that Acova had great GF options and, boy, did they! My SIL had choices she hasn’t had for years. The other 3 of us also loved our meals. Our server, Ally, was an absolute delight. We had a wonderful evening and will certainly be back.

    Food was great- wings, Caesar salad, mussels, trout special. Desserts were disappointing. Had bread, pudding, chocolate, torte, and donuts. The donuts were the best but they’re still fair. Service was awesome!

    Honestly, would like to give this place a 5. Food and service are always good. However, it's very off-putting that they put a time block on your table to show how long you can sit there. I thought this was a Covid thing, but it continues to exist--even when there are open tables in the restaurant. Just feel like no one wants a timer over their head when they come into a restaurant. Correct this, and I'd be more inclined to give an extra star.

    Took my friend here for a birthday brunch. She’s vegetarian and I am Gluten/dairy intolerant and they were able to accommodate us both. We got the VIP booth, service was great, food was great and reasonably priced, and they even treated my friend to some birthday donuts. Great overall experience!
