The Woods Roof Top Bar & Restaurant is my absolute favorite. The food is always fantastic and no matter what I order I am always delighted with my meal! Servers & Bar Tenders are also great and always efficient, happy, and polite. Can’t wait to return and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere special with a class in Denver. To make a reservation at the restaurant they use RESY Restaurant Reservation System.

We are so fortunate to have this place just a few minutes away from the heart of Denver. Food is stunning, both The Woods and downstairs Market Place Restaurants. Cocktail’s “WOW”, Refreshing Frozen Drinks, Wine great and lovely selection of finely crafted beers. Love this place and will continue to visit.
