    Grab a booth for a gorgeous view of Denver – try the BBQ duck sesame buns + braised goat tacos. In the summer, the stunning rooftop patio’s a must. For more, follow us on 4sq or at www.renhotels.com.

    Reservations can be hard to nab, but once you're in, you'll be hooked. Between the dining room and the menus, the innovation is exceptional. Also has the best patio in the city. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    This is the pork belly bao buns. I love how they made the bun somewhat crispy & gooey at the same time. The pork belly is sweet and tangy. but i just wished if they made the pork more tender.

    Call a couple days ahead for a reservation at a decent time. But the rooftop is a great alternative for the linger staples. Wagyu sliders and fish tacos are good fallbacks if you are indecisive.

    A little bit of an overwhelming menu, but great veggie options and rooftop bar! We got the duck buns, the masala dosa, shrimp pad Thai and beet falafel lettuce wraps (last two are a must!)

    Global. Street. Food. Brilliant idea and scanning the menu for ONE dish is impossible. SOLUTION: bring a posse, order 8. Don’t worry about price- just go enjoy this planet’s cuisine! Thank me later 🍲

    Gorgeous rooftop with views. The food is delicious! Duck bao, chicken pastries, beet salad, lamb kabobs, and Korean taco are tasty. The staff is amazing, shots and foie gras toast on the house.

    Linger is the best spot for groups or a date. It's hard to get a table in the main dining room without a reservation but I don't mind because I personally prefer the bar area upstairs!

    What a great surprise to have Asian, American, Latin, Middle Eastern and some much options in a single spot. We loved the falafel and the Devils horseback. Excellent!

    I went for lunch and I must admit that it is much better than their happy hour. I had a salmon bento box and it was absolutely delicious! Small salad, grains and salmon, and edamame and mushrooms.

    Do try the Lamb kofta kabab. , Siracha duck wings & Ginger collins for cocktails! Love the decor- take the seating by the bar to enjoy the view!

    Delicious food + fun cocktails... but quite pricey for all of the small plate dishes!! Also, the menu was all of the place in terms of cuisine types (American, Asian, Middle Eastern, European, Indian)

    This is the only thing i enjoyed eating. The chicken is cooked perfect and it compliments the rice that came with it. Delish! Simple yet the best!

    Check out the rooftop patio and vintage decor. Full menu is served in the upstairs dining room, open seating (main dining room is by list, patio has limited food menu).

    Everything at Linger was awesome! The ambiance, the food, the location... Get the falafel lettuce wraps, masala dosa, and beet salad. Actually get anything because it's all delicious. Will be back!

    Great ambiance on the roof - be strategic to get a spot on busy nights by having one person order and one person scout for a table. Self serve works well. I thought the buns were by far the best thing

    They have the best rooftop in Denver! We went for happy hour and our drinks were delicious. All the food is $5. Very pleased.

    Try this-- 50/50 gin and Dolin white vermouth split, dashed with orange bitters and served with a flamed orange twist, which gives the depth of caramelized citrus to the first sip! Read more

    Pineapple wontons dessert is good, it’s not too sweet and has a nice fruity taste and texture. I like the sesame sprinkles!

    Looooove this place. Good is amazing. Order the buns. And desert is fantastic, especially the coffee donuts dessert. Staff is super friendly. Ambience is great.

    I was skeptical of the wide-ranging, multicultural tapas menu, and then Linger's kitchen and staff proved me wrong— Also, the complimentary popcorn was a tasty way to hold you over until our food came

    Good bar food, cocktails, and nitro beers on tap. There's a rooftop space that's broken up into a get your own stuff section and a section that you can get served.

    Everything was great here. Very flavorful dishes. Try the chili-shrimp and the devil on a horseback. Great service too! Wanted to try the "magic crack", but we were stuffed

    Great place for a date! Big points for choosing a romantic setting that overlooks the city. Make a reso for a fun booth or go sit at the bar upstairs. Ask bartender to fix you a Tanteo cocktail. Mmm.

    the view used to be good but there's an apartment building blocking it now. Wish you could see mountains. Mongolian duck buns made it all worth it tho! Order more than 1, they're served individually.

    A wonderful addition to the Denver food scene. Scandinavian culinary approach to modern Asian fusion. Obvious ultra fresh locavore approach. Great deck overlooking skyline. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Devils On Horseback were alright but very rich. The Wagyu burger sliders were dry and still very pink in the middle. Ginger Chili shrimp was excellent as was the chili paneer. Recommend reservations.

    Truly something for everyone with exotic cuisine that's even gluten free or vegan! Bar or rooftop has best view. Note there will usually be a wait. This place is popular.

    Small plates that are ideal for groups. Tried a bunch— everything was delicious, but the duck wings and the stuffed dates were the favorites!

    All of the food and flavors are amazing. The Raw meze plate left us speechless. Beet cheesecake is to die for. Such unusual, decadent trio and all RAW!!

    The "breathtaking view" has been replaced with a view of the new condo building. But we knew that was coming. Still a great place for HH.

    Menu changes regularly but everything is delicious. If you have never been consider splitting some small plates with your date so you can try a little of everything.

    This might be tough with a little one, but if you score a date night, this is a great spot with an incredible roofdeck + view

    Got the wagyu sliders. I forgot to tell the server that i want it cooked medium. Very hearty! but the wagyu patties is not seasoned well. i didn't taste the beef at all even when they are very thick.

    Sister Restaurant to Root Down. They use local food and sustainable resources. The building used to be an old mortuary, now it's a hip restaurant/bar scene with a great roof-top patio.

    Are you kidding me? The trout skewers took me back to the Levant. Haven't eaten something that legit since Doha. Ridiculously good!
