Reviews for The Way Back

I came here for a friend's birthday and we all had a great time! The restaurant was busy, but not too loud that you couldn't talk. They have a huge cocktail menu, and the food was delicious! It has similar food to other Denver restaurants in the new American category, but with a couple of interesting options like okonomiyaki and green pea fritters.

A McL.
So sad that our service was just awful last night. My husband and I brought a friend from out of town and talked up the restaurant the whole way there. We were sat, then ignored for over 10 minutes. Some wait staff noticed but did nothing to assuage the awkward wait. Several were just waiting around the bar and could have easily just taken a drink order. The restaurant was far from busy. Finally our waiter arrived but helped the table next to us who had come in much later full review
I can’t believe that this place has a his few reviews. . . Well, I travel to Denver for business a lot and have been to many places around. . . The Way Back is a great experience. . . They have a relatively small food menu. But every single dish is very well thought. The combination of flavours is pretty good. I had the chance to try 3 different starters and 3 different mains, all were really good. I really liked Cavatelli. As a pasta addict, it was a culinary beauty. . . full review
