I always wanted to check out Potager. Hip neighborhood and a fun crowd. I struggled with what to order, the menu had few selections that sounded pleasing and within a reasonable price point. The duck salad I order was underwhelming. Small plate of duck pieces and mushrooms, all for $15. I asked why there was no greens since it was called a salad. I was offered a plate of steamed greens, which I accepted. It was tasty, but then I was charged an additional $8. So, $23 for a little bit of food. I would say unless you like spending a lot of money on a little food, I would skip it.

Potager is one of many restaurants in Denver touting a local, organic theme. After hearing so many of the ingredients came from places like North Carolina, we threw the notion of local out the door. The setting is great inside and having been the first table to be sat the night we went, our expectations were high. Our server came to our table 5 times in 10 minutes to see if we were ready to order and interrupted our conversation each time by hovering. The dishes were good, but not great for the price. The celery soup was served in a very shallow bowl, enough for 7-8 bites. The fisherman's stew had little to no associated broth...leaving us wondering why it was called a stew. The chicken, while seasoned nicely, was undercooked and wreaked havoc on my digestive system for 16 hrs. It was nearly impossible to get in touch with anyone at the restaurant to alert them to the issue the following day and no one ever returned my phone messages. Overall...the service was not great, the food, while good, was not out of the ordinary, the menu was very typical for this style of restaurant, and the portion/price ratio was very poor.

Potager is by far my favorite restaurant in Denver and that's a lot coming from a veteran foodie like myself!
Working with fresh, local ingredients their chef consistently delivers dishes that wow me and my friends. I was so impressed with this place the first time we ate there that my wife and came back the next night to sample desserts and wines. Even their cappuccinos were top notch and a perfect finish to one of their wonderful meals.
On top of their fabulous food, Potager offers a serene backyard patio to enjoy their wonderful wines and small plate items under Colorado's blissful spring, summer and fall evenings.
I've never called out another reviewer in any my reviews - that is until now. The young lady who gave this place two stars and referred to the food as 'barely edible' is WAY off base. Give it another shot!

The way the chef builds the fresh seasonal ever changing menu is nothing short of a work of art.
As for all around taste, quality, and presentation, this is our favorite place in town. The nicest staff... experts when it comes to recommending a good wine. They all love their jobs.
As someone who likes to cook and more importantly enjoys fresh, often organic, healthy eating without processed foods, this place is heaven. The skill the owner/chef has with combining flavors is mind boggling. I would never think to try some of these combinations and at times am unsure about them until they make it into my mouth!
The cheese souffle if they have one is the best on earth. I actually ordered a second one last visit after our meal and dessert!

Craziest thing...I showed up and wanted to remove the panchetta from a pizza to make it vegetarian. Was denied, because it was too hard the first week of a new menu. So...what makes it so hard to NOT place pancetta on a pizza, instead of PLACING it on the pizza...but still charging for it. The restaurant was half empty, and we were offering to pay more profit for a product that is so easy to make...but instead I only purchased a salad and spent only $8 dollars at the restaurant. Guess they have more money and more patrons than they need...or they don't know the v alue of a penny on every product they serve. Won't be visiting any time soon...

One of Colorado's Best and Supports Local Farmers: Rarely if ever will this wonderful place dissapoint. This is the type of business locals take visitors to for a dinner night out. Yes - it's louder with old brick walls exposed and an open kitchen, but that ambience is not your typical LoDo shabby rehab with so -so food. Terri and her crew have been a success in creating a comfortable menu and completely unintimidating list of choices. The service only struggles if super busy - but relax - take time at this place and be gracious. They appreciate the customer without fail. Support our best dining venus in these harder times!
