Organizing a group dining experience in the Mile High City can be tricky. Not every Denver restaurant can accommodate the group of 20 friends celebrating your birthday or the business associates coming together for a working lunch. But with some advanced planning, you'll find there are plenty of restaurants that have space for large parties. If your looking for a casual (but noisy) dining atmosphere with top quality upscale American comfort fare, reserve a long table or private side room at Steuben's. If you need more elbow room and less noise, then check out Palettes at the Denver Art Museum, which offers a contemporary, sunlit private dining room, accented by original artwork, that can accommodate up to 60 people. While at Range, large parties can dine in one of three original bank vaults, for a unique experience.
When dining with a group it is imperative to make an advance reservations. Even restaurants that cater to groups will need time to organize tables, and if you are heading out on a busy night, space can be an issue. When making a reservation for a group where one person isn't picking up the entire tab, it's also worth asking in advance whether separate checks can be issued as this will make figuring out the bill at the end a whole lot easier.
So whether you're looking for posh or family friendly, quiet or rowdy, a back room or just a long table, here are the best places to eat with a group in Denver.
