Acova is writing the next chapter of one of Denver’s great neighborhoods. An iconic locale in a historic district, Acova builds on the rich story of “The Northside” (now known as LoHi) by breathing new life into an address with soul. Even its name pays homage to its South Broadway sibling restaurant The Hornet, while tipping a cap to its storied Italian predecessor Patsy’s. The place you bring friends and family from out of town to show them what Denver’s all about. The place you go for that after work cocktail, or your go to date spot, whether it’s your first or 50th date. The place you get the group together on a Saturday night, and where you recover together on a Sunday morning. Acova is the next Highlands institution, bearing vintage flair and contemporary charm that threads the past into the future. Acova brings you back time and again because you are part of this story now, and Acova is part of yours.

    Had a party of 6 which included my 6 year old daughter , our first time here & server was great , very polite and acknowledged my daughter by trying to get small talk out of her even though she wasn’t very responsive. Server had great energy and very charismatic during our brunch experience which just creates a great time during our service .Drinks and food came out promptly after ordering. I ordered the chilaquiles verdes which I enjoyed !!! French toast was my daughter’s favorite, Italian Benedict were delicious, not to mention the avocado toast with the salmon , yummm ! Definitely will be back not only for the great food but great service as well .

    I have been to Acova twice recently. Once for a Friday happy hour where the food was outstanding and our server was excellent. I went again with my husband and other couple for a Friday night dinner. We all really enjoyed the food and wine. The only downside was that it was rather noisy, though I've been to much noisier places on Friday nights.

    Our experience was definitely on the disappointing side. Though there was nothing bad specifically, both the food and the service were mediocre at best. Did not live up to the reviews or hype of being one of the best brunch spots in Denver by a long shot.

    Acova is one of my Go To restaurants in the neighborhood. The service is always excellent, the prices are reasonable and the food is consistently good. For starters we always get the wings and the street tacos which are both great.

    First time here on a very busy Friday night during the holidays. Despite that the service was excellent. Our server (whose name I have unfortunately forgotten) was very attentive without being intrusive. The manager checked in a couple times to make sure everything was okay. We didn't have to wait to long for anything. The food was hot and very good. The menu had something very everyone and fun specialty cocktails. We all agreed we would be back.

    Overall, a great experience at Acova! Staff was warm and friendly though they were busy and wait times for drink orders and food was somewhat extended but nothing aggravating - definitely made up for with the friendliness of the staff. Nachos and wings were great appetizers and the short rib was great! Our group had some dietary restrictions and they were very, very accommodating. Can’t wait to go back again.

    My husband and I needed to move our reservation up because of weather concerns. There was no issue in doing this. We also had redeemed our Dining Points as part of the deal, and that was easy to use. We shared the pretzel bites, and my husband loved the cheese sauce (it wasn’t my thing but not a problem with the sauce). I ordered the lobster Mac and cheese which was smoky and delicious. My husband said his fish and chips were the best he’s had in a long time. I took a bite and they were buttery and amazing. My husband also found a new favorite cocktail with the blood orange drink. The table we were at was tight (I’ve got a bigger belly) but other than that it was the best meal we had on this trip in Denver.

    Not our best experience at Acova. We have been to Acova on many occasions and dine there because of the gluten free options. Unfortunately, on this visit the celiac got glutened by the fish and chips and is very sick. Not sure if we’ll be back.

    AcovaResponded on December 29, 2022Hi Anonymous, I really would like to chat with you about your experience to get more information and investigate further. The Fish and Chips doesn't go anywhere near any of our gluten options and the recipe has been unchanged for years. The fryers don't see a drop of gluten either so I'm anxious to get more details. We take Celiac very very seriously here and do hope your celiac friend is feeling better. Could you please call me or email? John@acovarestaurant.c0m or 303 736 2718 Thank you, John

    Food was very tasty and good for different tastes. In our party we had some very health minded persons, and some fond of traditional foods, and everybody was happy. I loved miso noodles salad, and my husband said he had best Mac and cheese with lobster and prosciutto ever. We had to repeat our order of mini pretzels with dip, they were so yummy! The service was fast, and our waiter was courteous and knowledgeable about food. Highly recommend the place!

    I would have given 5 stars overall except connectivity glitches to be able to access the QR code menu- the only menu provided until we requested paper ones- were very annoying. A server acknowledged challenges w internet. I understand that QR code menus are more sustainable.
