Downtown Denver’s Best …

As part of the historic landscape of the 16th Street Mall for nearly two decades, the Rialto Cafe is a downtown Denver staple known for its inviting atmosphere, reflecting Denver’s Mile High hospitality. When combined with the energetic and airy atmosphere, the cozy booths, and warm setting, it all begins to resemble the feel of a swingin’ supper club. While some of the dishes are familiar territory in American dining, the overall menu is anything but. Rialto Cafe takes on old favorites peppered with bold, rich flavors and pleasing presentations, as well as offering a surprise or two along the way. Featuring hand-cut steaks, seasonally fresh seafood, and an Italian dish or two, the menu is diverse, convenient, and a palate-pleaser for all tastes. The Rialto Cafe reminds you that dining and entertainment do indeed belong together as it’s within walking distance to many popular attractions like the Denver Center for the Performing ArtsColorado Convention CenterDenver Pavilions, Coors Field, Pepsi Center, Mile High Stadium and the RTD Light Rail. Rialto Café is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a fabulous weekend brunch featuring Denver’s Best Bottomless Mimosas with exotic fruit juice bar!

Great Dining Experience! Food is excellent along with the service. The cornbread served at the tables is surprisingly sweet and delightful. The main courses are beautiful and savory. The Steak Diane, Scottish Salmon, and 6oz Filet are all delicious choices. Probably one of the best restaurants on the 16th street mall.

I really like this spot and it's great being right on the walking mall. It definitely has a fancier feel than other places without being over the top. There's just something about the layout that I like too. Keep an eye out for Goupons as well.

We ate our Thanksgiving meal there and it was more authentic than I had hoped. Thanks for being open and serving others on Thanksgiving!

Fantastic place. The decor is great but not pretentious. The staff is exceptionally friendly. Best of all, the food is ON POINT. had the huevoes... incredible flavor profile. Wife had the biscuits and gravy. It came with eggs which was an interesting twist. Casual enough to be very kid friendly but nice enough to be date friendly. Outdoor seating is right on 16th. They had a pastry and fruit bar the Saturday we were there which was really nice. Bloody Mary's with great fixings too. I really can't say anything but good things about our experience.

I have been here 3 times and each time has been worse than the last. First off the service is terrible. Don't expect to get your food in a timely manner at all. After we had been seated for 20 minutes I asked what the status of our food was and the waitress told me "I don't know I only put it in 5 minutes ago" and then proceeds to bring us out cold food. Each time I could tell that our food had been sitting under warmers for at least 10 minutes. Don't bother telling them how you would like your burger cooked because you will get it well done no matter what with soggy fries. If you want sub-par overpriced food go across the street to chili's where they at least care about customer service.

Amazing eggs benedict, chicken sandwich and lemonades. Complementary pastries and fruit with entrees. Friendly service, busy place but miraculously we got seated immediately during lunchtime. Will definitely eat there again when I'm in the area!

I'm a big fan of their deconstructed Chicken "Pot Pie" with rosemary biscuits. And while I don't see it on the menu, you can still ask for the refreshing Cranberry/Lemongrass cooler.

I have been to their downtown Denver 16th street location on a quick work lunch, and ordered the fish tacos that were actually pretty good..!
