About Brazen

Established in September 2014, Brazen Neighborhood Eatery has been bringing quality food and hospitality to Denver’s West Highland neighborhood, with emphasis on sustainability, vegetables, and almost an entirely gluten-free menu.  Brazen bridges the gap between high-end downtown eateries and neighborhood fast casual food.  Brazen serves dinner Monday-Saturday and brunch on the weekends.

Christopher Sargent’s hopping West Highland hangout hosts nuanced New American cooking with an easygoing atmosphere that’s as comfortable as Sunday supper with your chums. The charismatic neighborhood gathering place showcases an open kitchen, chef’s counter, community table and bar and a truly laid-back vibe.

My husband and I tried two different cocktails each and the drinks were made very well and were balanced. The oysters with ponzu and microgreens are a must. We had the poke, meatballs, farro and the gnocchi and each dish was well presented and most importantly beautifully seasoned. The S'mores were a great dessert item to get!

I had tried the sliders with pulled pork and coleslaw. Very crisp and tenderizing. Next I had the 6oz steak and fries. They were seasoned with Thyme . The honey mustard sauce they provided was very delicious. I had then tried the blueberry lemonade drink. Very very luscious on the tongue. I had then tried what is know as a creme soda shot the bartender had made. Could not even taste the liquor but could tell it had just the right amount of flavor of both. The peach crisp ice cream was so flavorful: Really did hit the spot would definitely recommend this place for a good night at out after a long day of work to unwind and relax. The service for phenomenal paid attention to my needs and refilled my drinks. Even a wonderful date night would be fantastic for a young couple to unwind and chill with great food wonderful drinks and amazing customer service. 5 stars all around

Visited this spot while traveling to CA. Super chill!! The curry mussels were so flavorful. The oysters were a delightful treat. The five stars are also for the great service we received from the bartender. Drinks were definitely on point.

Delightful patio and great service. However, the food was the real star of the show. It's been a long time since I've tasted food..... just dish after dish that was as mind-blowingly delicious as a few weeks ago when I dined with friends at Brazen. Can't wait till next time I'm in town.... will definitely make it back for at least one meal!

Loved the food and drink selection here, but more importantly they are SUPER dog friendly. they have a great outdoor seating area that's grassy and has shade for the dogs along with posts to attach their leashes. the server brought out a bowl of water for them right away and was so friendly toward them, as were other staff. definitely going to be returning because of the amazing atmosphere and how friendly and accomodating the staff were. 😊

Grabbed some food to go at this spot before heading out of town. Their fryer had just broken and we had ordered some sweet potato fries and didn’t have time to wait. Honestly, this wasn’t a deal to us at all but I wanted to note how great this business handled this and really excelled at making us feel valued as customers. Also noted their cool patio area that’s nicely socially distanced and looks like it would be a fun place to have a couple beers. Next time!

I've only ever been during COVID/quarantine/social distancing, but I love their park and patio set up and the food and drinks are a great value. Amazing place to hang out on a Friday evening.

We went on one of the first days it was open after quarantine! It was hectic and a little disorganized (to be expected) but the staff made the entire evening enjoyable with a friendly smile and upbeat attitude. It seemed as though nothing could get the staff down.Food was great as well, portion size was a bit small! I do believe they had a limited menu due to re-opening. Would recommend 😁

This restaurant has done a fantastic job with adapting to the COVID restrictions. The food and drinks are delicious, and I loved sitting on the expanded outside lawn area. I think they should consider keeping the layout like this beyond the social distancing restrictions! Well done.

Amazing food first off! I came to support a local restaurant the first day they were allowed to open for sit down. In true fashion of 2020 there was a crazy rain storm. The owner and everyone made the best of the situation and had blankets and we all took shots together. It was fun despite getting wet! I am pulling for these guys though this whole thing.

Once again, Chris and his skeleton crew at Brazen wildly exceeded our expectations tonight. Our meal was delicious! And what an excellent gluten free menu....
