For those of you new to my restaurant reviews, my reviews are based on delicious vegan food and on great service. Both are equally important to me.
Two weeks ago WaterCourse Foods announced that they had become an all-vegan restaurant. After 16 years of being a vegetarian restaurant, they introduced this idea to their staff on a Monday morning and introduced an incredible, new menu to the public shortly afterwards.
Prior to that Monday, I can count on one hand the amount of times I had been to WaterCourse in the past six years. Since that Monday, I have been four times. I have been twice with Mike and twice on my own. Between the two dinners and the two lunches, I have tried many of the new items. All of this is to say that my review is based on good, solid research.
Note: Before I stopped frequenting WaterCourse, I was quite the regular and WaterCourse was a huge part of my life. They even catered our wedding in 2005.
Also for new readers, I do not review a restaurant until I have dined there at least three times. This makes sure I can make a fair review.
I love WaterCourse milk shakes. Love them. Great flavors, and now you can order one with just the glass filled (with no extra) which makes me feel better. Definitely try a milkshake.
Mike and I both LOVE the new cauliflower wings. They are delicious, flavorful, and not as filling as seitan wings.
New items include the jack fruit tacos. I highly recommend these. More flavor and great taste. The new deviled eggs are delicious as well. They are purple, which seems to be a turn off for some people but if you can get past that you'll be pleasantly surprised with the flavor.
There are many new dinner entrees, including chicken and waffles! The Monti pasta is still on the menu and I had that last night. Loved it.
They all have fresh juices available.
I have many times not returned to a restaurant because of poor service. There came a point in my life when I was done with having to apologize to a server for getting in their way by showing up for a meal. Service is crucial.
All four times I was at WaterCourse in the past two weeks the service was incredible. Friendly, quick, attentive and the server even recommended favorite items. Several folks have told me recently that they stopped going to WaterCourse because of the poor service. To all of them I say it's OK to go back. If you get treated anywhere close to how I have been treated, you will be delighted. Of the four servers I have had, all rocked it. If I were to pick one that you could ask for, I'd go with Nathan.
Finally, I noticed that their price points had lowered. I think everything is priced fairly and I think WaterCourse is pretty affordable.
I so enjoy WaterCourse Foods now that I added them to my list of favorite places to eat in Denver on our blog.
Check them out. Even if you had sworn them off, check them out. You won't regret it, I promise.
For hours, go to their website at watercoursefoods.com
