About Linger

Linger, the second concept behind Root Down's Chef/Owner Justin Cucci is located in Denver's Lower Highlands neighborhood. Linger’s vibrant menu reflects a broad farm-to-street sensibility with a spin on traditional ethnic eats. Design elements can be described as a purposeful contradiction featuring reclaimed boxcar floors, a brick ellipse, a Lite Brite bar top and infinity windows with incredible views into downtown Denver. The food, the service, the story combine to extract a feeling. Linger is like a mixtape, and we hope it connects. We’re not trying to reinvent food -- it’s simpler than that. We hope to elicit a feeling – like you get when you hear your favorite song.
Linger now offers lunch!!!! Tuesday - Friday 11:30 am till 2:30 pm.

The one ding I would give them is this: we were seated on the opposite wall of the bathrooms. At times, really foul smells would 'linger' in the air. I am not sure if there is something they could do or not. Maybe vent the bathrooms...and it may just be that one table. The staff was really good once we got 'started' but she seemed annoyed in the beginning. We had a very stressful few hours just prior and were taking our time looking at the menu and deciding what to drink. We've eaten there a few times and it is always a pleasure to go.

4th visit - Will be another good long while before heading back because the food and cocktails are hit or miss, not consistently delicious like sister restaurant Root Down.\nThe crowd continues to be on the self-important side, feels more like a place to 'see and be seen' than a place to enjoy a meal with friends. Left with a sore throat because our four top had to shout to hear one another (we dined between 7-9 on a Friday night).

Linger is a fun spot if a bit loud. I wish their tables for 2 were a bit larger. BUT the food is very good. I especially liked the Kobe Beef sliders although next time I will ask that the sauce they put on the bun replace the ketchup for the sweet potato fries. I did not like the house ketchup. I also enjoyed the 'devils on horseback' appetizer - dates stuffed with goat cheese, then wrapped in bacon and cooked. I think I would prefer this dish with blue cheese. And the dessert 'ice' is a lovely idea. The frozen concoction is shaved very fine so that it feels creamy in your mouth and melts quickly. Both times I have had this dish the flavor combinations have been slightly off. This time the mixture was strawberry and guava - the guava made it a touch too sour for me. I thought the crumbled almond biscotti and the chocolate chunks were a very good finishing touch. It is a bummer that the restaurant week prices have increased - we did not feel we were getting much of a deal this year. But we did get a great meal at Linger.

Interesting restaurant but had a hard time finding anything really exciting for entrees on the lunch menu. It felt a bit like they were trying too hard to be unique and cool so it left little that resembled anything mainstream. Lots of pork items on the menu (ham, pork belly) so really difficult to find anything to order if you don't eat it. Best things we ate were the sweet potato fries and the donut dessert with mousse in a coffee cup.

We were definitely interested in the street food cuisine. I was glad to see a small representation of a lot of different cultures in their menu. They even had cricket protein in one of their options (though I didn't order any!). Their service was really great, the server we got understood my lactose intolerance and she kept that in mind when I ordered chai and replaced the milk with almond milk like an hour after I told her.

We always enjoy Linger. We brought friends from NYC while they were in town for Restaurant week. Service wasn't the best we've had, but they sent us home with drink tickets which made up for it. I appreciate the GF options and we also had a vegan with us, and I know she appreciated the vegan options. The only thing we were really disappointed in was the desserts. We had 6 in our party and no one finished their dessert. Maybe a little more mainstream dessert option would be good?

I gave service 1 star because during brunch I ordered a bottomless minosa (13.00) and the entire time during brunch the waiter and other wait staff kept passing by and not keeping the mimosa bottomless even after asking someone for more, needless to say I had a 13.00 single mimosa. Not worth 13.00!

I had made a reservation on a Sunday during brunch hours for a party of 9 to celebrate my grandpa's 90th birthday. I called a couple days before to ask if it was possible to seat us in a quieter area of the restaurant since my grandfather is hard of hearing and having a conversation in a loud room is near impossible. The hostess said it was no problem and they would be able to put us in their semi-private dining area. Great! However, when we arrived at the restaurant for our scheduled reservation we had to wait an additional 20 minutes to be seated, and when we were seated we were next to a big party of 15+ people celebrating a 27th birthday. They were drinking and having a good time as they should, but they were so loud and made it impossible to have a conversation within our group. I normally don't mind loud people having a good time, but why did the hostess ever think it was a good idea to sit a party with a 90 year old who can't hear next to an obnoxious large group of young people. If we hadn't specifically asked to be in a quiet area it wouldn't have been an issue, but that party of 15 definitely had a reservation as well and the hostess knew who she was putting us next to. We would have been better off sitting in the main dining room with everyone else. Also the service wasn't even that great. I expect great service all the time, but especially when the staff is aware we are celebrating a 90th birthday and the service is just sub-par. Don't know if I will go back anytime soon.

Food is amazing, including the devil's on horseback and the pork belly bao buns for appetizers. Before I ordered my entree, the masala dosa, I asked our server if it was spicy since I'm very sensitive to spicy foods unfortunately. I was reassured it wasn't and the sauces would be on the side. The dish itself was moderate spicy without the sauces and I was very disappointed. Other than that the service was great and I would go back again and explore the other menu items!

My dad came in town and took out a few of my friends and me for dinner. Linger was great! Reviews are pretty accurate. Some of the dishes were OUTSTANDING (like the dragon bao bun and fried rice) and everything else was solid but not amazing. Great experience though. Will definitely go back to try all of the bao buns.

To start, let me just say that the food is excellent. The main gripe with this place is the value for the money. I don't usually complain about portion size, and I can think of many restaurants that my wife and I absolutely love that have small portions and similar, or higher, pricing. However, the portions here are very small, almost to the point of being tapas, only with full meal pricing. It is worse, because our server even billed it as plates meant for sharing, which is true if you want to share a couple bites. The location is in a former mortuary and is in an extremely popular location. The atmosphere is nice and they really play up the building's history. It's a fine place to go once for the experience, but I can't see us going back when there are many better restaurants in that same area that don't suffer from the same problems.

I had heard a lot about the interesting history of the building and looked forward immensely to giving Linger a try. As Denver's (and possibly the world's?) only 'Eatuary,' I was not disappointed! Bottomless blood orange mimosas (in pint glasses, I might add) for $15 (regular OJ = $13) plus an interesting and oddly light atmosphere made the creative cuisine stand out all the more. I highly recommend the breakfast Bahn Mi + scrambled egg with a side of the deliciously crispy, lattice-cut sweet potato fries! All in all, Linger offers a delightful brunch in an up and coming neighborhood!

We went for our 18th wedding anniversary. Even though they knew that, they seated us up against a wall with no view...we moved ourselves to an open table with a view. The waitress was very nice and she explained how things work and offered suggestions on how many plates we needed to order. The first thing was the dumpling 5 stars, second was Devil on Horseback 3 stars, third was the prawns....sent them back because they were whole, eyes and legs and all. So we ordered the scallop poke.... 1 star. They failed to mention the scallops are RAW. We like ceviche so we powered on...it was iffy but seeing how we already returned one dish we ate most of the scallops. Big mistake. Both of us got sick within three hours. Vomiting with stomach cramps. Overall it's overpriced for tiny portions and clearly low quality sea food.

My girlfriend and I went here for our anniversary. This was our first time here so we did not really know what to expect. The environment was exciting and the service was excellent even with a full house. The food tasted delicious and the prices were average for what was provided portion wise. What the food lacks in portion, it makes up for it in flavor and texture. Overall, this is a great place to eat when you want to take others here for an exciting dinner that has the perfect dessert place literally next door (Little Man's Ice cream). I wouldn't go here everyday unless I was a wealthy person. Prices were above average and portions weren't really filling. But flavor is definitely in every bite and texture is blended really well in the dishes.

What happened?!?! \n\nAfter happily dining at Ophelia's many times and having a great experience at Root Down, my partner and I were thrilled to try Linger for an early Valentine's Day celebration. Except that our experience was NOTHING like our experiences at their other restaurants. We arrived for our reservation and were told we would need to wait a few minutes while they found someone to seat us. When the hostess returned, she tried to seat another couple who had arrived after us without asking their name. After alerting her and then being sat, we waited a very long time before our server came to take our drink order. He was very apologetic, and things looked quite busy, so we understood. After ordering, the real issues began. Our waffle was just flat our cold - perhaps it was pre-frozen and this was the way it was intended to be served, but this was not indicated so it was a bit surprising. There were also what appeared to be pieces of nut shell sprinkled on the waffle - I painfully found 3 pieces while taking my only 2 bites. For my meal, I ordered the Moroccan Baked Egg which arrived with a mound of partially rotting cilantro over half of it. After investigating in shock a bit further, I informed the waiter. He asked if he could take a picture of it, and I requested that the kitchen please simply remove the rotting cilantro. They removed the cilantro and returned the dish exactly as it was otherwise, so it looked a bit lopsided and the varying temperatures matched. Nothing like some cold root vegetables to finish out the meal. The waiter proceeded to tell us how amazing the food was and that we should really come back for their Valentine's Day dinner as though none of our challenges had even occurred. We paid the in tact bill and left in disappointment.

I visited Linger after not having been for a while and I'm still thinking about how delicious it was. I love that they update their menu from time to time, but I know I'll always find my tried and true favorites. This time i ordered something new - the Vietnamese surf and turf. I wouldn't have ordered it if i hadn't seen it on the table next to us. It's a platter of steak and shrimp with Vietnamese toppings and they bring the hard rice shells that you dip in water and make your own spring roll wraps - oh my gosh! Amazing!!! That's a new item that I'll be going back for, no question! Great gluten free and vegetarian options, as always and delicious cocktails!

As always, amazing food. Everything was outstanding and the waiting service was great. We did have a reservation which the restaurant was not prepared for, we waited twenty minutes past our reservation time. I've been here a few times before and this has never happened so it caught me off guard. The staff did their best to be accommodating but it was clear they were either short staffed or just very overwhelmed. Staff was going back and forth through the small area that is the waiting area and it was so crowded there was no where to even move when the door opened. This made the host quite frustrated and he kept asking people to move. Like I said this had never happened before so I was caught off guard, I'm still more than pleased with the food and table service and will definitely be coming back.

Not at all happy. Won't be back. Tired of being told different stories on the gluten free issue; I get you cannot guarantee cross contamination, but the story on if you have a dedicated GF fryer or not always changes every time I go there. Last time I was assured there was a GF dedicated fryer by a manager. This time server said 'the fryer isn't gluten free today because we are too busy.' Thanks Linger for another frustrating experience. Definitely not giving it another chance.

What a great dining experience! Devil on horseback was excellent, even to someone that doesn't eat goat cheese. Very accommodating with seating and dietary restrictions (gluten free and vegan options) with local and primarily organic ingredients. There was even a gluten reduced IPA beer that I had not heard of that was excellent (it was a one word name that I don't recall)! While the gf dessert options were minimal and small, they were definitely trying. They even created a chocolate/vanilla pudding wuth a birthday candle for the special occasion. Definitely worth the drive and the visit. I'll be back!

Its shareable items but if you get about 3 you will be full and satisfied. The atmosphere was sophisticated yet casual which is great for a evening out with friends. I will definitely be going back!!

Many people rave about this place but honestly, if you've traveled around the world and have experience food with bold flavors, this place's food was lacking in flavor. Spice was missing in the latin, Indian and Thai inspired food. Many of the foods Linger took a take on did not develop the combination of sweet, sour, smoke and spice that is staple in the regions it tried to mimic. We were very disappointed in the food however, the service and the ambiance is worth coming back for.

We treated our friends who were visiting from California to a New Years Eve dinner at Linger, and we talked it up for days in advance. Unfortunately, we were completely disappointed. They had a Prix Fixe menu, and each person was $80 (which didn't include any drinks). The first course was good, but the beef in our second course was cold, and the two dessert choices were almost inedible. We've been to Linger many times, and this just wasn't even close to their standard, especially at that price.

Maybe because it was New Years Day... we were told that entrees were going to take a while, so they recommended we get a starter. We were going to get the dates stuffed with cheese and wrapped with bacon anyway, and they were good, as was the Bloody Mary and the coffee. So far so good. I ordered the special, rabbit tamales, and my companion ordered the Argentinian steak. Steak was okay, although it had a lot of sinew in it that should have been removed before serving. On the tamales, The pomegranate salsa was pretty good, but the rest of the flavors were all jumbled together, not bad, but not as good as it could have been. Eggs were overdone. Although the dish was only lukewarm, I didn't want to send it back for fear that it would be nuked, and it was already pretty dry. I may give them another chance, probably on their dinner menu, hoping that the New Years crowds caused this to be a not so good meal.

I will preface by saying that I typically love Linger and recommend this restaurant to anyone who asks. On Saturday, unfortunately, Linger did not live up to their name. I did the responsible Saturday night thing and made a reservation for 7:15PM. We were not sat at our table until 7:55PM, which I felt defeated the purpose. We then proceeded to order for our party of 6. Once we ordered, our waiter seemed to be MIA to refill drinks or take additional orders. When he finally came around, he told us to wait while he bussed a table and then took our order with dirty plates in hand. This typically would not have bothered me, however we did not receive any of these orders. Upon his return, he handed us the bill. The manager came over after we paid explaining that our dish was up at the window in case we wanted it wrapped, however we had by then lost our appetite, paid, and left. \n\nI am very understanding that Linger is a busy place, but hiring a couple more people for the weekends may be beneficial, as this experience left a bad taste in my mouth.

The flavors are wonderful. Each dish we tried was unique. They even had one with crickets. \nThe service was also very good. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. The drinks were also excellent. I ordered a Buffalo Trace Manhattan on the rocks that was made perfectly. A Pisco Sour was also one of the best outside Peru!\nPrices were extremely reasonable.

I've been a fan of Linger since they opened several years ago. The menu is fun; the ambiance is cool. But our last dining experience was terrible! A couple of our water glasses were dirty. A sticky/dirty glass of wine was served to us. The menus were dirty. The server (who was very nice and polite) took forever even to bring us the popcorn, even though the restaurant was not even full during our Monday evening dine. Our dishes came after a pretty darn long wait, came all at once instead of how they normally taper out the plates, and a couple of the dishes we ordered never came at all. We had to ask him to remove them from our bill when we were checking out since they never arrived... The sliders were more than rare; they were almost RAW. I hope this was a one-off experience and not the new standard at a restaurant that has been so awesome in the past!

A group of us decided to try Linger for a Sunday Brunch. What a fun place. It is located in a pleasant neighborhood just east of I-25. We made reservations and as they opened the door precisely at 10 AM on Sunday we were immediately seated. The decor is interesting, not formal, not too casual. Jeans acceptable which was good for our group. The view overlooked the neighborhood park and people out walking, then onward towards the city. The location is easy to find but parking on the street can be difficult due to the apartment style housing that surrounds the location. Go early and no problem, plus they do offer Valet parking starting at 10 AM on Sunday.\nThe menu seemed a little limited, but the food options were different and the presentation was awesome! The Spanish omelet and Chorizo Tacos were favorites at our table. Don't pass on the bottomless Mimosa, mostly champagne, as a good buy versus single drinks. Coffee kept coming throughout the meal. The service was spectacular as servers assisted each other so water glasses were constantly refilled, coffee continually offered and those Mimosa's kept flowing.\nThe check was less than we expected for six people, including alcoholic beverages. The group had such a enjoyable, non-rushed meal, we already picked a date for next month to return with even more people.\nHighly recommend for the friendly service. The unique combinations and presentation of brunch items. Don't forget to order the 'Donut Holes with chocolate dipping sauce' for the table as a starter!

We have dined at Linger a few times before and have loved it, but on this particular occasion we sat in the upstairs lounge and had terrible service, and mediocre food. The hostess was rude to my husband when he arrived, our server was arrogant and unfriendly, and the food was not nearly as good as we remembered from prior visits. When our entree arrived before our meal, which we weren't terribly concerned about, she asked us in a very flat tone, 'Your salads didn't arrive?' We said, no. Instead of apologizing, she said nothing, and walked away. By itself, this wasn't a big deal, but in the context of our entire experience on this particular day, her attitude and the mediocre food made us not want to return. There are a ton of fantastic restaurant choices in Denver and Linger has always been one of them so I'm sad to report that it is not a consistently good experience.

We dined at Linger during a vacation to Denver. At face value, Linger is a wonderful small plate restaurant. The selections are sometimes unusual and always inspired. The bao buns are a must - try the Dragon bun as my favorite the tempura avocado or the fried chicken bun because fried chicken anything is great. The pressed watermelon (?) was odd but mesmerizing. I'm not sure what made this different from plain watermelon and it is different and better. Everything was delicious. The drinks were phenomenal - I had the 'corpse recover'. The Spanish gin and tonic was also the best g&t ever. \n\nNow add a friendly and informed server. I usually like unobtrusive servers. This one was very talkative and so pleasant and informed she was a delight. \n\nNow add that the building is a renovated mortuary. Find the subtle and not so subtle references to the building's history. \n\nThe second floor bar is a giant lite-brite. You can't play with it but it does bring back great childhood memories. \n\nI'm a fan of this this place and will absolutely return on my next Denver visit. Maybe I'll try the crickets. (Maybe not).

I have been a fan of Linger for a long time. The concept of street food from around the world is a winner and the space is very nice. Typically the food is very good to outstanding. This time though several of the small plates were WAY over salted. I don't mean a little bit I mean it was over powering. I don't know why chefs do this. Someone can always add salt but you can never take it out. I will give them another chance but if the food is that salty again I will pass on this one.

I took my boyfriend here for a father's day dinner, for the price you pay for both food and drinks it's not worth your money. The portions of everything on the menu are very small you have to order 4-5 things to get enough food to feel full. The prices for drinks, ridiculous! We paid $15 each for a glass of house Cab and $9 each for a 8oz beer. You can get a way better, bigger meal at Del Frisco's, Shannahan's etc. We won't go back.

Adventurous try the cricket tacos. Water comes in formaldehyde bottles. The drink menu is in an old metal flip top folder. Try the corpse reviver 2 1/2 for a cocktail if you like gin or absinthe. If you haven't notice it used to be part of a mortuary. The menu is reasonable priced and includes many items around the world. Take for example, dessert - try the Taiwanese coconut snow ice.

I typically have reserved a table using Open Table, this last time was a little confusing in that my reservation didn't seem to be in the system though I had received a confirmation email from Open Table about my reservation. So not exactly sure what happened there, however the staff was friendly and courteous, able to rectify the situation and got my friend and I seated.

I brought a couple in town from Omaha, a doctor and his wife, and they were not impressed. Granted, we are a bit older-55-60 range-but still......... Also, $20 plus for certain tapas that are barely enough to share. Coffee was cold and it took forever to get our waitstaff back to address that let alone a refill.

Made a reservation beforehand, but apparently that didn't matter as we waited 10-minutes before being sat. My main issue is that there was hair in one of our dishes, and I mentioned it to both the manager and our waitress. Not sure the manager heard me, as she showed no sign of concern, nor was she apologetic. I then mentioned it to our waitress, who seemed concerned and apologetic. However, when the bill came, they still charged us for the dish with the hair in it. Food was OK, nothing to write home about. We liked one of our dishes, but wouldn't necessarily re-order the other 3-dishes we ate. We did unexpectedly receive a couple of caramels, even though we didn't order dessert, which was a nice gesture. Service seemed OK at first, but then it went south, as we had to start filling our own water glasses, while our wine glasses sat empty, before the manager noticed and finally came over to refill them from the bottle we'd ordered. I was excited for this first visit, but was left feeling underwhelmed and unmotivated to return.

This was my 4th time at Linger - my second for lunch. I was extremely impressed with the Service - from the reception to the wait staff excellent. As for the food . . . hmmm. . . I'm just not that impressed with the food at Linger. I have friends that love it but I think there are a number of other restaurants with similar menus that are better. Sorry. I love the rooftop deck but the interior dining space does not impress me. It's a little dark inside for me.

This was by far one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. They have a great deal on Tuesdays where you can get 3 courses for $30. The food was amazing and the ambience was really upscale.

If you're looking for a unique dining experience with upscale and trendy cuisine, then you must try Linger! My wife and I celebrated our 37th anniversary by going here for the first time. We were greeted with smiling faces, warm conversation, and taken to a window table to enjoy the evening and view. The waiter (Tom) was very helpful in detailing the selections we asked about. The entire wait staff kept our water glasses filled and table cleared of clutter. The various dishes were gourmet prepared, served at the appropriate food temperature, tasted very flavorful, and were plentiful. You won't be eating the 'same old thing' here! Try the desserts, especially the 'Italian Coffee and Doughnuts' , which they're not. The shift manager came by during the meal to check on things and personally brought us warm toasted bread,au gratis, to let me soak up the flavorful spices of my meal. Tom brought us each a half glass of champagne to toast our celebration, a classy move rarely shown at other high class restaurants. Bravo to the Linger management, staff, and chefs for a superb meal and evening that more than exceeded our expectations!! We will return, and soon! Others may want to give their other restaurant, Root Down, a try also as it too is a wonderful dining establishment.

This is my second time visiting Denver and make it a point to grab brunch at Linger. I love the variety of food options the restaurant offers! This isn't yours typical oatmeal and eggs type of brunch, although they do offer more common food items like that as well. This last time, I ordered the Hangover Ramen; I highly recommend it! You will not be disappointed. Also be sure to order the blood orange (bottomless) mimosa, it will make your day. It's a pretty busy place, especially for brunch/lunch, I definitely recommend making a reservation prior to going.

Although this place is interesting, being in an old mortuary, the food does not really live up the the reputation. My fish tacos were merely alright and the meat taco was not very good. The cuban sandwich came on bread so dense it was impossible to cut. My friend had a salad and he said it was merely alright. All of this would be great at 10 bucks, but most of the dishes cost around $16. If it were less expensive and the food was a bit better this place would be terrific. However judging from the crowds not everyone shares my lukewarm opinion; it was packed by 12:30 with people waiting and this for lunch on a weekday.

When someone waited that long, the food would come out cold.\n\nOne couple in our party ordered Fish Tacos and the beef sliders, they came out cold and very under cooked. Which told us that the order had been up for quite some time and was not delivered when it should've been.\n\nAlso, we ordered the Dahl Soup, it never came out and when we notified the server, she told us she would pack it up to go and never did.\n\nI'm not sure if we will go back, but the meals and the experiences we had prior to last Saturday night were great. \n\nI hope this helps Linger figure out what happened that night and correct it quickly so no one has to have our same disappointments. \n\nAnd, for four of the eight people in our group this was their first time to Linger!\n\nHonestly, I could go on, but I think I've said enough.

Attended their Sunday brunch. The food was good however anyone that is gluten free and/or vegan should note Linger's GF and vegan options are just omissions of non-vegan, non-GF items and not substations which means you pay the same price for less food. A big disappointment considering this restaurant is a part of a group of restaurants that includes a much more vegan and gluten free friendly restaurant, Root Down. So you would expect better dietary accommodations than simply removing items from the dish to make it GF or vegan from a place like this.

The bartender in the bus seems annoyed that we were ordering drinks or of our overall existence. All answers to questions were given with a head nod or a point to our answer. The menu was limited to brunch, totally fine. A few of us built our own plates of eggs, avocado, toast, fruit, ect. One side of eggs were delivered 5 minutes before everyone (4 top) else's plates. When we explained that we created a breakfast plate and some ordered brunch entrees the servers response was, 'yeah, they come out as they are ready' and then she turned and walked away.

And, one of our party had some specific food allergies, and previously after requesting online what dishes he could have, he had received an emailed version of every dish on the menu that would be possible for him, also very thoughtful. \nWe don't want to complain because there's a lot to like here but we got the sense that maybe the scale of brunch attendees were overwhelming their capacity to do everything as spectacularly as their reputation holds.

Linger has multiple personalities and a diner must be aware of its schizophrenic nature in order to maximize their enjoyment. The first floor is a cavernous restaurant with an open kitchen. The noise level is beyond belief, only rivaled by the New York Stock Exchange during a 'run.' The servers can only be heard if their shouting voice reaches decibels of a staff sergeant during boot camp. \nThe second floor at Linger is a charming cocktail lounge with a cute bar and a wonderful view of downtown Denver. If I was 'master of the universe,' I would implode the first floor, eliminating this type of dining from memory, and have only thoughts of the second floor linger. Linger also has an outside patio which is very charming with great views. \n The food is an eclectic amalgam of small plates, representing cuisines from around the world. The concept markets itself as street food from a select grouping of countries, but has morphed into what the kitchen decides to prepare with no reflection on 'street food.' Dining pleasure is hit or miss. Some dishes taste great, some mediocre, and some stink. It depends on the night and your palate. \nI enjoy Linger, especially with a group, if I can avoid the hell of that first floor. However, if you enjoy sticking your head in a speaker, with Steve Vai manipulating an electric guitar at super sonic sound, you will enjoy Linger's first floor.

Root Down in both locations and now Linger continue to provide an outstanding dining experience. The staff are friendly, personal and professional. I would recommend any of the Edible Beats restaurants to anyone regardless of their food preferences. Northern California has a reputation for exceptional food, however they seem to have forgotten to keep the focus on the food and not on cache' or their image. Thanks for focusing on food, people and a good time for all.\n\nBest wishes,\nNicholas

First visit to Linger, and the decor and food did not disappoint. They specialize in small plates from a variety of ethnic backgrounds with their own special flair. We tried four plates, and all of them were delicious. Free valet parking with a friendly valet, too. My only complaint is that our particular server seemed to be focused elsewhere when she came by our table, and we didn't feel particularly welcome - and also felt rushed to get us out of the table. We didn't observe this with all the servers, so I hope it was just a bad night for her. I'd definitely give it another chance - even with the drive of 75+ miles.

This was my first visit Linger, after reading some positive reviews (Eater 38) and personal recommendations from friends. In short, Linger lived up to its reputation - and then some. Starting with the hip, modern atmosphere and warm greeting from the hostess, I was off to a great start. The menu is eclectic, focusing on Chef's commitment to fresh and local product. I asked for a Chef's Choice tasting menu in advance. Even though it was a busy Friday night, the staff didn't miss a beat. Each of the courses were delicious and balanced with flawless pacing. Sommelier Kelley Graham has assembled an diverse, yet approachable wine list to satisfy both New and Old World palates. The wines paired perfectly with the many small plates. I'd highly recommend diners just let go and try some wine varietals they may not be familiar with. You'll be richly rewarded! Service was friendly, professional and very knowledgable. Linger is a gem, which also boasts a stunning rooftop view of the Denver skyline. I'd highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning the next time I'm in Denver.

We certainly weren't prepared to have to order from a brunch menu on a Saturday at 2pm--I guess we should have reviewed the menu prior to going so that we knew. However, if we did review the menu online first we would not have gone. Really, the only items on the brunch menu that weren't breakfast related were sliders and a pasta bowl--at 2pm we wanted lunch--sandwiches and the like. There was nothing on the menu that interested us--neither on the brunch menu nor the dinner menu. Disappointing to say the least.

Linger is good. I came for Brunch. I knew it would be busy, but I realized I prefer a little bit more of a casual, dining experience, as opposed to the hustle and bustle of a hip brunch place. I may come back at a less busy time (if Linger is ever not busy! ha). I wouldn't know that it was a former mortuary by anything I saw in Linger (I might have missed something). I also would have enjoyed dining on the root top. So, ultimately, what I experienced was a decent brunch in a crazy busy, loud place that I wouldn't have known is special, if I hadn't read it first.

This is the second time that I have had dinner at Linger. It is also was the second time that we were told to go wait on a text notification for our table and were forgot about completely. On 6/25, our reservation was for a birthday, I noted this when I made the reservation. When we arrived, I told the host that we had a reservation and that it was a birthday celebration. We arrived 15 minutes early for our dinner reservation. After 40 minutes of waiting, I went back to the host. He wouldn't look at me! He kept looking around our party; it was infuriating! Finally, another host asked what we needed. After 45 minutes, we were seated quickly; however, we were seated at a tiny table in the middle of a very loud area. We still had a nice time. The birthday guest enjoyed his meal; however, I'm now finished with Linger. The hosts are generally inept and rude, it's loud, the service is good, but so slow, and the food and drinks are okay. These are *so* many other great restaurants and bars in Denver and I will be checking those out. So long, Linger!

It was great inside. We sat at a table that was very indoor/outdoor feeling and loved it. Thought the food was significantly overpriced. We both had the ramen and also the dragon bun. Both of our ramens were barely warm and downright cold in the middle of the bowl. I didn't really like the dragon bun and we left that after a bite. Service started out good and attentive but as the restaurant got busier (we were there early lunch time on a weekend) our waiter disappeared and we had a hard time getting the check or drinks filled. Overall I would come back if I was in Denver just because it was a unique place but order something different and hope I just made a poor menu choice this time.

I was very much looking forward to our first visit to Linger for our anniversary. When we walked through the door, I was immediately hit with a very strong smell of curry/vindaloo. This is not a flavor or smell I particularly care for, so this worried me a bit. \n We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation, but were seated right away. Our server was fantastic, bringing us water right away and getting us set with our beers. She then arrived with the popcorn flavor of the day: vindaloo. So, that explained the smell. My husband loved it. It was very off-putting to me. \nOur server explained that each menu item would come out as it was ready. We ordered four plates, and they all arrived in rapid succession. The window bays were open and we were seated near them on what was a somewhat cool night for the city. So, there was really no option to eat slowly, as the food cooled rather quickly. We opted out of dessert, although saw a few that we would probably try in the future. \nI suppose I cannot complain about the food coming too quickly. I did expect a slow, lingering meal. We were in and out in under 50 minutes. I liked, but did not love my experience.

The menu consists of small plates representative of different regions in the world. The waitress suggested, smartly, that we start with three plates.\nThe chopped beet salad came composed and they suggested we mix everything together to get the full melding of the flavors it was superlative! The wagyu beef Sliders and the wagyu tacos were flavorful and seasoned well for the palate.

We were pleasantly surprised after having been here before and being disappointed to where we had to call a manager over mid-meal. It seems like either Linger has figured out their wait and host staff, or maybe brunch is just a better bet than dinner.\n\nThe food was delicious. I had the Breakfast Dosa (one of the waiter's recommendations), which is an Indian-inspired stuffed crepe (maybe?). It had a lot of flavor.\n\nMy only gripe is that we got sat at an awkward two-top table next to a large-party table, with a connected booth bench. This was a bit weird because the two parties could hear each others' conversations, and it definitely didn't help the noise level. It was also strange because Linger is supposed to have an amazing view of the skyline, yet all the windows were out of sight for our table. We just had a giant drywall in front of our table so we couldn't see anything.

This was our third visit to Linger, and we were really looking forward to it -- but were very disappointed at the quality of food. Being a huge fan of ramen, I tried their waitress-recommended 'Hangover Ramen' that was to include 'lots of condiments.' The broth was bland and definitely NEEDED condiment help -- I was expecting kimchee, or specially made sauces, or grilled bok choy, anything interesting -- but the only provisions were a crusty bottle of fish sauce, raw sesame seeds, dry red pepper blend, and plain ol' ground black pepper. The marinaded soft-cooked egg in it was nicely done, and the diced pork belly added a little variety, but as a soup it was passable -- but as ramen, it was lame. \n\nAnother dish on our table was the Korean BBQ Bento box, and although the meat was well cooked and flavorful, the rest of the 'box' was practically inedible. The edamame and mushrooms were unseasoned and HARD, the salad was barely dressed (was really looking forward to a great 'ginger miso dressing'), the macaroon was over-sweet, and the rice was mush. We only brought the leftover meat home, and no one fought for it later. \n\nThe saving grace was the Cubano sandwich, which I would order again if I ever bring myself to give Linger another chance. It used to be challenging to get a table, but based on the emptiness during our visit, I assume that other patrons have had similar experiences lately. We didn't even stay for the donuts we were originally craving, and instead headed for the ice creamery next door.

We went there for my birthday dinner and to be clear, they were well aware it was a birthday dinner. They sat us at the first booth by the entrance- considering it was a special occasion and the reservation was made over a week in advance, you would hope they would saved a somewhat better table? Maybe one where you could actually enjoy the view of Denver, or not even asking for that much, maybe not the table that is by the kitchen and suffers the most foot traffic because it is by the entrance. I worked in restaurants for over 6 years and if we had a special occasion (especially on a Monday night when restaurants are not as slammed) we would make sure to reserve a nicer table for them. I would call that good business. The food was good and our server had great suggestions and did an all-around great job.

Linger was one of our favorite restaurants - after last night that has passed. They have changed up their menu and nothing was really good. The Devils on horseback barely had any cheese, if any. The pork belly corn dogs had waaaaay too much breading, the charred octopus ( I guess we should have asked how it was prepared) the little guys are whole and overly salted/pickled, the chai was mainly milk, the perfect bites should mention it's a cold dish (kinda weird), the cheese curds for the first time were heh, the doughnut tho we're still delicious. Idk what's going on, but I don't think we will go back and try again - so sad

I've been to Linger several times, but on our last visit, the food was a bit off. It was a Wednesday night, 8pm reservation, so that could be the issue. Perhaps the chef was out. In any case, I love this restaurant and will return, with high hopes that it was just a fluke.

Linger offered many tempting dishes and bottomless mimosas. After eating we went to the rooftop and continued to enjoy our drinks. We were given wrist bands to let the bartender know that we had already paid for our drinks and continued to fill our mimosas. What a delightful way to spend a long Sunday morning.

Haven't been to Linger for a couple of years. Definitely a place restaurant resting on its past greatness. Two of our dishes -- pork belly bun and devils on horseback -- were still very good. The fish in the fish tacos was soggy making them tasteless. A special pork dish that night came out with lettuce that looked old. The pork was fine, but the mangos in the sauce weren't ripe and tasteless ... not worth the $25 we paid for it. \n\nService was terrific.\n\nWon't be spending my dining dollars there any time soon.

Wow. I am so disappointed. I had really looked forward to going to Linger, but nothing I or my group had was even decent. The fried rice and duck bun was almost inedible because of how much salt it had. My corn dogs were disgusting- all breaking no pork. The bill was $100 for the four of us, which wasn't bad, but we hardly got anything because it was so bad. This place just tried way too hard and totally failed! It took FOREVER!! Dinner at 5:30 was over an hour and a half just to get all the food. I'm so mad. I can't stand this place. I will never come back here. Go to TAG or somewhere else, this place is awful and way over done.

Linger has a great wine list and iconic dishes but the newer chefs menu is less refined and balanced than in years past. Special beef with huge chunks of too thick beet and too raw of carrot took away from some interesting flavors. Maybe he will settle down into the linger flow with time.

The rooftop bar at Linger is absolutely fantastic and a must do on any trip to Denver. The food was decent, the Devil's Horsemen being the highlight. But the service was terrible. It took ages to get menus, over 20 minutes to order drinks, and then no one came back to check on us. We actually had to make several trips to the corner of the bar where the waiters were to order our food, request the check, and then to finally pay the check. All in all, the view/ambiance is the real saving grace of this place. The service needs some serious work.

Overall atmosphere was very loud, our reservation was 6pm. We arrived on time. Our drinks did not get served until 6:47pm. Our server was observantly trying to do all she could but she made 4 trips up the steps to the bar before bringing our drinks down with her. Our food was another wait. Although the attempt was made to smooth things over with a portion of popcorn and a small order of sweet potato fries, we arrived hungry. Seven orders plus appetizers were delivered in stages and not so that all could eat together. My daughter's food (kids menu) did not arrive until two others were completely done with their meal. This was not the point of a birthday dinner. The view on the website no longer matches the actually view since the apartment buildings to the east were built. The food was OK but portions were on the small side for the price. Linger has a very bold and daring kids menu for the fact that a kids menu is normally there to offer basic kid comfort foods. Overall, been there, done that, cross it off the list but not necessarily a place I would look to be a repeat customer of.

We were warmly greeted when we arrived and were given a table near a window. I've been to Linger when it was very crowded and the noise level can be pretty bad. (Probably due to the open concept in the dining room.) The weather was beautiful on the 7th. The 'windows' were all open and I'm sure that helped the noise level. But, on top of that - there was a wonderful breeze coming through those windows which made a terrific lunch - perfect. Our server was friendly and was helpful explaining items on the menu. She was also one of those great servers that knows when not to interrupt you when you are in mid-sentence. I don't remember her name but she deserves recognition. The food was tasty. I had the Korean BBQ Bento box. My friend had Waygyu sliders. All-in-all, I couldn't have been happier!

This was my 3rd time visiting Linger. The food and atmosphere were good but...the food was coming too fast for our liking. There were 2 of us sharing plates and we ordered the dates and the scallops; in both cases we were told there were 3 of them and would we like to order 1 more so we could split them equally. We choose 'yes'. Both dishes showed up with 6. Not sure I understood what that was about but felt we might have been taken advantage of. Where their 5 and we ordered another one which we wouldn't have in the case of 5 vs. 3. There was plenty of good. I would go back again because we enjoy it but would be clear we wanted our choices delivered further apart and asking exactly how many are on each plate.

Based on the menu and atmosphere, I chose this one for our only dinner in the city during a trip around CO. It did not disappoint! First we got a drink on the rooftop, which was super cool. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the portions - they were pretty generous for 'small plates'. We ordered the Devils on horseback, duck wings, fried rice with short rib, garlic shrimp, and sweet potato fries. Each was truly outstanding, but my favorites were the duck ribs (we ordered a second!) and Devils on horseback. I also LOVED how they put a glass water bottle on each table. I drink a lot of water during meals and I hate having to wait for a refill (although our waiter was so on it, I don't think I had to fill my glass once). Last thing to note - service was QUICK!

In fairness, the food rating is based on the menu as we never ordered. This restaurant was recommended to us by a local and we accepted the recommendation blindly. The menu is a bit adventurous, so if you're not in the mood to experiment it's probably not the place for you. Also, in the summer the area near the kitchen is uncomfortably warm, so you may want to request to sit down in the lower part where it's cooler.

My sister was briefly in town, & my time with her was a few hours where I had to get her from Boulder to the airport . I booked a reservation for Sunday Brunch at Linger in an attempt to offer up one of Denver's best. We were not disappointed.\n\nThe only fault in our whole experience was getting a table, but since we weren't in a rush, it wasn't really a problem. When we checked in, they said our table was tabbing out & would be available shortly. They offered to text when the table was available, so we headed over to the bar to peruse the menu and grab a drink.\n\nThe bartenders were quick, attentive & pleasant. Our table was MIA. There were a couple of seats at the end of the bar that we could have taken, but we opted to wait for our table. And wait we did. As I finished my delicious Ginger Collins, the folks at the bar offered us a table that was clearing out, & we almost took it, as it was then about a half hour after our reservation.\n\nSticking with the reservation, we headed down to the hostess stand. After waiting a few minutes, we were finally taken to our table. My description of the wait probably sounds like it was enough to ruin the meal, but it really wasn't bad at all. Sticking with our table was well worth it because we had Kia (I think that was her name) as our server.\n\nShe was our guide through the meal, guiding us towards the amazing charred long bean salad and otherwise making our meal delightful. I drink a ton of water, & my glass was never close to empty. It helped that they leave bottles on the table, but I emptied my bottle a couple of times.\n\nThe service was spot on, but it was Kia's fun personality that made our meal a winner. My sister mentioned that we were celebrating my birthday, which was a few days later. A little while later Kia brought over a single candle so I could make a birthday wish. A nice little touch we weren't expecting.\n\nWe both left happy and delighted, highly pleased with our food and the time we shared.

We spent a weekend in Denver and we're looking for a great brunch spot to try out -- Linger did not disappoint. We were easily able to get a reservation on a Sunday morning as the place is HUGE. We tried the anti milkshake (see picture; not my cup of tea but my husband loved it) and Bloody Mary (deliciously spicy with tasty accoutrements). My husband ordered the crab cake Benedict -- the hollandaise was amazing, the crab cake was tender and delicious, and the accompanying potatoes/yams were diverse and tasty! I couldn't resist ordering the breakfast dosa as I'd never seen anything like it on a brunch menu and it seemed everyone around us was ordering it. It didn't disappoint; one of the best things I've ever had for brunch. Eggs, avocado, and curried potatoes wrapped in a delicious dosa! \n\nMake sure to go check out the rooftop bar and views. This restaurant is in an old mortuary, which is itself very cool. I would definitely come back for happy hour when I'm in Denver again!

Outstanding on all counts- service, ambience and food. We were celebrating a wedding anniversary and the waiter started us off with free champagne and a congratulatory postcard. Things kept getting better from there with the Bao bun appetizers. I chose a Mongolian BBQ with the crispy tofu and it was excellent. We also tried the cheese dippers and grilled shrimp starters. Lastly the Masala Dosa was freshly made and delicious! Our server was great- even giving us plastic cups to finish our bottle of wine on the upper deck.

I hosted a group of friends for dinner at Linger. We started on the rooftop fir a cocktail and appetizer during happy hour. Why wouldnt you put an old RV on the roof and make it into a bar? Great value at Happy Hour, very creative drinks. Headed downstairs for our dinner reservation. One person of our group is Celiac and has a few other limiting allergies. The staff was VERY accomodating as was the kitchen and brought out several options that fit the dietary needs and were delicious. They made the guest feel welcome where most places make it a hassle. These people really know their stuff! Everything was great the dishes were all amazing- nothing was left over. They even made a big Vietnamese shaved ice cream for the table that also fit the dietary needs. We also had the doughnuts for the gluten-please and they were delicious. Thank you Linger for a great experience!!

Terrible experience at a restaurant that is usually very dependable. Had co-workers in from NY. Food took forever to arrive, only half the orders showed up, we waited at least another 20 minutes for other food to arrive. Manager apologized and offered to replace waiting food and buy drinks at that time (only 3 people wanted drinks at that time.) Second batch of food arrived, one order was wrong. Had to be sent back and took probably another 10-15 minutes. After all of this our bill was only comped for three drinks and the one order they screwed up. There should have been far more items comped or something else offered to make up for just an awful night. Food was not that great either.

I wanted to take my wife to this restaurant for some time, we like the small plate format, and were very impressed by Ophelia's, their 'sister' restaurant, downtown, I had a difficult time making a reservation. Finally I got one for Friday night, our date night. My very traditional, 86 year old grandmother surprised us with a visit from New York, and I invited her along. She had quite a blast, despite initially being confused by the format, and the menu. The restaurant overlooks Little Man Ice Cream, and that area of LOhi. The service was great and the food was fun, my wife (a vegetarian), me, and my Grandmother all had an adventurous and delicious meal.

This was my first time at Linger so I thought I would give it a try for brunch. I thought the menu was trying to go in too many different dirrections when it came to food. All five of us tried different items and only one person actually liked the sandwich he ordered. Bottomless mimosas took too long to refill and water ran out regularly. Our server had too large of an area to manage and she was upset with with one her tables. In the end, when she brought us our check, we asked it to be split up and that apparently was a lot to ask. When she brought our checks back she tossed them on the table and ran to the next table.

Still not sure why this place is so popular. We went back after a poor experience five years ago and it hasn't changed. Overpriced food that while interesting is nothing extraordinary, tiny serving sizes (yes I know it's small plates but for $23 you'd think you'd get more than three bites). Server was apathetic. Restaurant was way too cold. Left hungry after paying $90. Won't return.

We had been trying to go to Linger for a long time but never planned far enough in advance to get a reservation. Since it was a birthday celebration for my 26 year old daughter we were scheduled in advance, probably about 10 days prior. We really enjoyed the food, had quite the variety, there were 5 of us so we all ordered something different of course. We loved the surf and turf with rice paper and had fun making them, we also enjoyed the fish tacos and the bbq tacos, ginger chili shrimp, sweet potato fries, devils on horseback with the dates everyone especially adored. We loved the dessert - the coconut snow ice cream and the hand made caramels were awesome.

Don't come hungry. If you do, come rich. This restaurant has absolutely killer dishes--flavorful, masterfully prepared, and ornately presented. The service, for us, was above any expectations we could have had. Being a poor college student on a date, though, I felt cheap for not buying more food, but at the same time, I couldn't bring myself to do it because the proportions are so tiny. So I have sort of a sour taste in my mouth, because I wasn't prepared for this style of dining.

Read of Linger in an article about the Hottest restaurants in the Denver area so made this reservation about 4 weeks ago, knowing we would be visiting Denver. My husband, 2 sons and I were seated in a lovely booth and given menus. One of my sons was THRILLED to see Pappy Van Winkle bourbon on the bar list. They had the 10 and 12 year available so we all had the 12 year which was a first for all of us! The Linger menu is wonderfully different and thanks to our server, we tried many items. The Devils on Horseback, which were delicious, and a duck special appetizer which was also superb. Everything we ordered we shared and each was delicious. Try the sesame barbeque tacos, YUM, and pork tenderloin and pupusas, which were sooooo good. Also loved the Argentinian beef fajitas! Really I don't think you can go wrong with a anything on that menu! \nWe also had several of the special cocktails, created by the award winning bartender. The Five Spice Old Fashioned and French Quarter were unique and delicious. Reservations are tough to get on short notice, so put Linger on your to do list for whenever you CAN get a reservation. You'll be glad you did.

I had been to Linger a couple of years ago for lunch and the food was interesting and good - plus the setting is unique. I suggested to friends that we go there because it was good and different from the norm. The food was fine, but the service was atrocious. Most notable was that the staff tending bar did not know how to mix a Moscow mule (what we were served was not drinkable) and when I defaulted to wine, I was served a sparkling wine passed off as rose'. I was shocked. I finally went to the bar and ordered yet another glass of wine because we had been at the table for over half an hour and only one of us had a drink and there was no food in sight. It was a real disappointment and a surprise. I don't plan to go back.

We came to Linger for dinner while my sister was in town. We decided to order several plates to share, and one of them was the fish tacos. My husband has celiac disease, so he has to be gluten free. When our other dishes came, they had little gluten free labels on them, which was great and made him feel comfortable eating everything. When the tacos came, they did not have this flag, and they were suspiciously flour shell looking. Our waiter stopped back over and noticed before we even had a chance to question, and they manager came out, apologized and gave us new tacos (and we got to keep the other ones!).

Great restaurant. We had a reservation for 6 people for a birthday, including a 1-year old. The vibe is trendy/hipster. This is definitely more tapas/share plates than actual entree dinners. We just ordered a couple things from each section of the menu and it was plenty of food. The duck wings are AMAZING, fish tacos were yummy, the lamb kabobs were melt-in-your-mouth, and the donuts for dessert are incredible! Everything we had was super tasty. Mixed drinks also very good. Our server was really busy (and also training someone) but she did a good job checking in. I've heard complaints about it being too pricey, but our tab was $250 for 5 adults, with 2-3 drinks per person, probably 6-7 tapas plates PLUS 2 desserts. So $50pp seems reasonable to me for a tasty birthday dinner! And we were all stuffed.\n\nMy only irk was that we arrived at 6pm purposefully to make happy hour (which ends at 6:30.) They don't tell you, but the happy hour menu is only available in the upstairs bar area, not in the lower/regular dining area. Kind of silly.

We really enjoy the food at Lingers and go out of our way to bring guests whenever friends/family visit. The service has always been good. Our frustration is with the noise and how hard it is to have to sacrifice good conversation with friends/family to experience an outstanding meal. Maybe the owners could Google 'Get Smart' Cone of Silence for their next venture when designing. :)

This was the first time at Linger for brunch. I've been a lover of your vegan friendly dinner menus and happy hour for a while and found myself and foodie friends eager to try a day time meal here. The atmosphere and aesthetic of the restaurant felt rustic yet posh as usual and service was on point. We were impressed by the flavors and presentation of our meals and drinks except for one thing. Please stop trying to pass off store bought snacks as a something culinary. Kettle chips, fava bean chips with the steak and egg, and I'm pretty sure my side of sweet potato fries had to have been frozen. While your main dishes taste great and seem to be quality please don't cheap out on the sides/garnishes. I would rather not pay for it to be there at all if I can open a bag and put on a plate myself. This definitely lowered my impression of Linger, I hope to try Ophelia's soon and not be similarly disappointed.

I wish I could remember her name. (The other outstanding waitress from earlier that fall on the roof was named Dominique.) Unfortunately, the male waiter was competing with her.

VERY clever, tasty, texturally-interesting coconut snow with mochi bits, caramel sauce and crunchy chocolate bits.....YUM. If only I had a ice shaving machine at my disposal, I'd eat and serve this daily. Heck, I think I'll try to figure out how to recreate this at home because it was so clever and so delicious! We also enjoyed the silky 'candy bar' with peanut butter 'silk', salty , crunchy nuts, crispy but not too hard or dense cookie base and coated in fine dark chocolate. It, too, was creative and delicious. \n\nI prefer savory food and rarely splurge on desserts but perhaps I'm missing out....! I hate being disappointed by a sad dessert after a lovely meal - it leaves a 'bad taste' in my mouth. ;) The last thing we put into our mouths can be what we remember about the whole meal. These were two memorable, texturally diverse and delicious endings to tasty meals. Wow. \n\nWay to go, Pastry Chef! KUDOS. Thanks a bunch!

Over the last few years, we have immensely enjoyed Linger, and so have our friends whom we have invited (who are now Linger lovers, too!) The creativity of each item on the menu, the fabulous flavors and textures, and a plethora of choices, makes Linger lovable for both foodies and not-so-foodies alike.\n\nThe generosity of spirit from Culinary Director, Chef Daniel Asher, the back of the house, and the front of the house makes for many many return visits brunch, lunch or dinner.\n\nWhether you are local or just visiting, you'll be raving about your entire Linger experience.

After years of trying to get a reservation for my friends on my birthday, I was finally successful (I did this by figuring out they take reservations about 2 mo. in advance--and as a side note, I don't recommend going without a reservation). I was SO excited--Linger is my favorite restaurant. We arrived at the restaurant exactly on time for the reservation (9 of us) and were told that we could go to the bar to wait; they would text me when our table was ready. Wait, what? I had a reservation; shouldn't our table be ready (or close to)? Nope, it wasn't. In fact, we waited for over twenty minutes and finally my boyfriend went down to tell them how ridiculous this was (9 of us trying to stand around in an already crowded bar). It felt like a ploy to get us to purchase more of their expensive drinks (at $9-10 a pop, it adds up through a 3 hour meal). After he spoke with the hostess we were seated immediately which was great but frustrating that after a complaint, accommodations were made so quickly but a reservation meant nothing. We received a complimentary dish for the wait which contained a small chip with various toppings for each of us-very delicious. We never did receive popcorn. Our waiter, while kind, had the voice of a church mouse and only spoke to one person in our group and had them relay the message. A bit inadequate and awkward for such an established and popular restaurant that is truly quite loud. My food was great; some people said theirs was cold (can happen with large groups--unfortunately, scallops). In general, we are an easy crowd to please but I was really bummed and embarrassed for putting my friends through this. I felt like we really got the cold shoulder in the restaurant and I'm not particularly sure why. Though I am absolutely in love with the Devils on Horseback, and the Ginger Chili Shrimp, (as well as various other items on the menu) I think it may be a while before I go back and it definitely won't be at the top of my list from now on.

The menu was very diverse in main dishes and in alcoholic drinks. The combination of spices and herbs and ordinary breakfast items made this menu unique. I loved how they could make dishes gluten-free or vegan upon request. I was glad we made reservations as this place is just so busy. This is not your average brunch place and it is so worth the drive from Monument to experience the food, the atmosphere and the neighborhood. \nWe were celebrating 2 birthdays and so if one is looking for someplace special this is definitely the place to be.

Lots of variety on the menu and always something for everyone. Love the location- in the trendiest part of town and easy to walk to with lots going on all around. Atmosphere is awesome, always lively and energetic. Great cocktail list and food favorites are the duck wings, duck and pork buns, chili shrimp and pot stickers, but we always try to get at least one new item every visit! Sweet potato fries are a must have as well. Everyone we bring here is always impressed with the menu and loves the atmosphere and overall experience. We will definitely keep coming back!

We enjoyed our first visit to Linger. Love the family style concept and the chance to taste food from several different cuisines. The duck wings and Pad Thai were our favorites along with the donuts and coffee dessert. Watch out if you like to call your martinis. They charged $18 per drink. The hand crafted cocktails cost much less and are fussier to make. Confused why they'd charge so much for a straightforward drink. You can buy a nice bottle of gin for the price of two cocktails.

Linger's eclectic selection of small plates makes it easy for a couple or a group to sample many of the tasty offerings on the menu. Each plate is large enough for 2 people to share and they are brrought to the table in small batches so as you finish 1-2 plates and 2 more arrive. It really helps slow the pace of the meal. We were not rushed at any time during our evening.\n\nThe beer and wine list is respectable along with a unique list of specialty cocktails. \n\nWe booked through Open Table which is advised .. the restaurant was full when we arrived at 7:30. This is a younger crowd typical of the Highlands area of Denver. In nice weather you can walk to Linger from Denver's Union Station which makes it great for light rail/bus users.

Linger is a nice venue. Nice location, nice decor, nice menu. The donut wholes are delicious. The eggs on our Benedict were undercooked. Everything else about our meal was very good. Our server was not exactly friendly, but not rude either (waiting tables is a tough job). But, a chai tea with milk in it is not the same as a chai latte. Don't get fussy if you don't know the difference, just take the time to learn the difference!\n\nOtherwise, I like this place. Lots of items on the menu I really want to try.

I recently went to Linger for brunch on Sunday with a group of 5 other people. Our reservation was at 1:00 PM, however we were not seated until around 1:20 PM at a table for 5 instead of 6. The squeeze wasn't too bad and the hostess was friendly, so it wasn't a huge deal. Would have been nice to have been seated on time though! Food was great like always and the bottomless mimosas were exactly what we wanted. Our waiter was a little short (verbally) and not overly friendly, but he was clearly pretty busy.
