    We heard good things about this restaurant, but left pretty disappointed. Unfortunately, our server Keith had no personality, and didn't care to have any interaction with our table. He never told us the specials, never asked how our food or drinks were when they came out. The gentleman that poured us our water and delivered the apps gave us more info and better service.(He was the one that informed us of the great specials for the evening) Food was just okay. Tartare and focaccia were good, pappardelle was bland. Flaming Crème brûlée was great! (I’m guessing another special because it was not on the menu)

    I went here for my birthday for the first time, took about 10 mins to be “greeted” by server after being ignored as others walked past several times. A simple hello or anything would’ve been nice. Next mistake was sitting upstairs, way too noisy (had to repeat myself many times to waiter) and some funky vibe with the staff up there “just doing the job” and not making it a pleasant or welcoming dining experience. I thought I was going to have an awesome Italian meal for my birthday! But the menu is really limited and not much in the way of pasta options, so I had risotto which I can pretty much get anywhere. Won’t be back, but maybe your mileage will vary.

    It's tough. Scored a last second reservation and drove all the way from the burbs to get there. Lucked out and got a parking spot right in front. After that, it got a little weird. Posto is one of those places where ownership let's the employees dress however they want. I get it. Staffing is tough and the downtown millennials want to express themselves, but they stand out b/c they don't match the guests wardrobe. They are dressed down and besides a few servers, avoided eye contact at all times. If you're going to give your employees the options of dressing how they want, the bare minimum should be where their clientele is at. Ripped jeans and sneakers? I guess... Waited 8 min to be greeted but the server made up for it. Of course, get sat with no menus and the QR code was on the table. It's SOOO dark in the restaurant and I know it probably saves a few bucks not getting menus reprinted, but seriously. NO ONE LIKES THESE. Server graciously offers to get us real menus but why have this extra step? Have the host ask. It's a dark restaurant and no one on a date wants to keep having to open their phone and get the blue light. Server made good recommendations on the charcuteries but were out of the one of the meats. No worries-he found us a great one. Crackers were trash. Who thought burnt crackers was clever? LOL. The board was severely missing either more honeycomb/jam and real bread. Don't overthink charcuterie IMO. Risotto was good, but the pappardelle was thrown in the trash at home. I didn't have the heart to tell them so I took a to-go box. Sorry for wasting the $. So underwhelming and under seasoned. MOD stopped by and acknowledged the notes on the visit and server brought out a prosecco toast. Nice touch. Thank you. We won't be back, but we appreciate you having us. Also observed a server drinking something out of a port glass behind the bar. Wine/spirit samples should come during preshift or once all guests have left. Again, class it up a bit.

    We came in at 5pm on Friday, the restaurant wasn't busy and you can see the servers and chefs getting ready for the evening from the entrance/host stand. The host sat us near the kitchen which was a little noisy so we asked to be seated upstairs where it seemed a bit more quiet and, honestly, looked cuter as the sun was beginning to set. The host informed us that they "...weren't seating the area until 5pm" which was strange because it was right at 5pm and that the "...kitchen wasn't ready to serve dinner until 5pm." As we walked upstairs, we immediately noticed that a family was already there enjoying their early dinner. All of this was very strange. Our new server was very kind and treated us well throughout the evening. It definitely made up for such an awkward opening by the host and the first server. I understand that sections are divvied amongst the servers but wanted to show my visiting elderly parent a good time in Denver and their section just wasn't pleasant to be in. We ordered the salmon, cacio e pepe, mushroom risotto and the mussels. The salmon was very good. I found the menu a bit difficult to order from and got tired of my risotto after eating about half of the plate.

    Sat at the bar and had outstanding service and an excellent martini! I went there a couple of months ago and thought the mussels were the best I had ever had. And I've had a lot. Apparently the recipe has been changed by a new chef. They were good but not as impressive as the old dish that I had returned for. That said, the ravioli special was exceptional. Just wish they hadn't changed the mussels.

    Celebrating our son’s masters degree with a Saturday morning brunch. Server was fantastic. She made excellent recommendations and had actually eaten the food herself. Her recommendations were spot on. She overhead us talking about our son’s graduation and offered a free dessert. Wow! Thank you. French toast, biscuits & gravy, kale salad with salmon—all delicious. Cocktails were yummy too!

    Great drinks and the ambiance was exceptional. I really loved all the cool lighting designs. The food was quite good but the portions were a little small for what you're paying especially for the pasta courses. The service was nice if a little inattentive but nothing that was a dealbreaker.

    Six of us dined to celebrate an event. We never felt rushed as we worked our way through drinks, charcuterie, a few appetizers, and mains. Our waitperson was attentive but not overbearing. The host seated us around a smallish table since a larger party occupied the more accommodating tables. The cocktails received high marks from everyone. The lapse in service and knowledge came from the sommelier. The Il Posto wine list is extensive but manageable for most. We had preferences and chose to discuss options with the sommelier, who appeared to be completely unfamiliar with the list and most varietals. He left the table twice to refresh his knowledge of the list we had in our hands. This aspect of the dinner proved disappointing. We ordered wine based on our knowledge, accepting that we overpaid substantially based on our selection and experience. Our choice, no doubt, but the sommelier provided no value; he just wasn't knowledgeable. Finally, our waitperson was aided by another person responsible for delivering bread, drinks, some appetizers, etc. The delivery was more akin to Denny's than what we expected here. Still, our waitperson made up for it with a terrific demeanor, knowledge, and helpfulness.
