Like Denver Westword readers, OpenTable diners, and TripAdvisor critics say that when you book a reservation at Black Hawk’s top-rated restaurant, you can expect a 5-star, award-winning experience!

The awards and recognition showcase the hard work and commitment to guests by Chef de Cuisine Greg Weadick, and Front-of-House Manager Daniel Hoctor and their teams, whose primary goal is to provide a VIP dining experience for guests from the moment they take their seat to the moment they leave.
