I had the spring rolls as an appetizer. They were good, but didn't have much shrimp in them. A little over priced, but good quality. <br> <br>I also had the filet mignon, like the previous reviewer. Mine was cooked to order and delicious. The spice was pretty heavy and probably too spicy for most. The price was reasonable for a filet. <br> <br>I would return again.
I have eaten there several times and usually very happy. Food has always been good until last night when I ordered the filet mignon for the first time. It was so salty I could barely choke it down, my friend had the same and he couldn't even eat his because it was so salty. It was also much spicier than I think a filet should be. A piece of meat of that quality should have subtle seasoning to allow the flavor of the meat to shine through. They did give my friend his steak for free so at least they were fair.
An important part of a restaurant is the host/ess. This person has the tremendous job of juggling people. They have to have the patience of a saint, the planning ability of the director of FEMA, and be friendly in the midst of all this chaos too. Unfortunately, they also have to be honest. This was my problem with the hostess the day we went to the Coral Room. We had put ourselves early on the wait list. When we asked how much longer it would be, were told 20 minutes. An hour later, it was ""20 minutes"". After 2 and a half hours of this, I was so angry that we went over to Trattoria Stella across the street, where we were told, ""about 40-45 minutes...we think...but it's hard to estimate, could be longer."" It was longer, but I didn't have a problem with that, because I had been warned, and I chose to stay. I have no special expectations of swift seating, but I do expect reasonable estimates, and an honest answer if an estimation isn't possible. It keeps me from wasting my time, and ensures that I will return to try another time. I never got to try the food, and probably never will. Coral Room needs to take a hosting lesson from Trattoria Stella across the street.
Coral Room is a great place to go for happy hour, drinks or just a nice night out. I have been here at least a dozen times, and it has always been delicious and fun. The service is attentive and low key. No pressure, no hassles. The food is creative and tastey. I always have a great time here.
Made the mistake of ordering a ""smll plate"". It was indeed small, but it mattered not. The parmesan tofu was ok, just ok. But the accompanying polenta was so oversalted it was inebible. Would've complained to the waiter but didn't see him again until it was time for the bill. He just shrugged and walked away when I mentioned the problem. He thinks he's at the Four Seasons instead of a run-down strip mall in Denver.
The worst ""girls night out birthday celebration ever""! Your not going to believe this experience!\r <br>Our dinner immediately went from bad to the worst dining experience we had encountered. Here is our list of how it went wrong.\r <br>~Mojito removed before finished, and reluctantly replaced with a dishwater like substitute \r <br>~Cheese tray was the delicious highlight of our meal!\r <br>~Harticot verte salads missing the main ingredient(green beans), but the wait staff rudely told us we must have eaten them. \r <br>~Filet was inedibly over salted.\r <br>~Scallops were undercooked\r <br>We were completely disgusted and in shock by the food and the service we received at the popular spot. The manager had complete disregard for our disaster of an evening and dismissed our every complaint! I would not waste my money on the bad food served at this restaurant. \r
best customer service great happy hour food always excellent
I love this place. Everyone is friendly, the food is always excellent, and what a generous pour on the wine! Happy hour is a steal with 5 dollar wines that are good quality selections. The bartender is quick and always friendly. Love Love Love it!!!
The Coral Room has been a longtime favorite of mine. I have had many fabulous experiences there and will continue to return over and over again.\r <br>The innovative and scrumptious menu always seems to satisfy whatever I may be in the mood for, and the bartenders and servers are attentive and friendly. The Coral Room is the kind of place where you can feel at home and welcome whether you are a regular customer or a first timer. I have recently participated in some of their new happy hour specials which top the neighborhood for sure.\r <br>Keep it up Coral! I will see you soon!
Very disappointing - Stapleton location was much better
Coral Room (in Stapleton) was one of my favorite restaurants. The food was always perfect and the service was prompt, professional, and very friendly. I was extremely disappointed when the Stapleton location closed so I decided to give the HIghlands location a try.\r <br>\r <br>It was very disappointing. The bar was packed with loud, drunk people which made the ambiance very trashy. Slimy lettuce was used on my salad and my steak came out well done when I ordered it medium. The service wasn't any better - our server neglected us. She didn't even ask how everything was. We had to ask the hostess for water as well as we had to ask for our check twice! Overall, it was a horrible dining experience. The owners should have closed this location and not the Stapleton one.
