Q: Service at Denver restaurants just keeps getting lousier. Is there a place we can go where we won't feel like cattle bothering the servers with our presence?

A: I've never had better service than at Tante Louise (4900 East Colfax Avenue, 303-355-4488), although my experiences at Mizuna (225 East Seventh Avenue, 303-832-4778), Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse (8100 East Orchard Drive, Greenwood Village, 303-796-0100), Vesta Dipping Grill (1822 Blake Street, 303-296-1970), Strings (1700 Humboldt Street, 303-831-7310), Flagstaff House (1138 Flagstaff Road, Boulder, 303-442-4640), Mel's Restaurant and Bar (235 Fillmore Street, 303-333-3979), Piatti Ristorante (190 St. Paul Street, 303-321-1919), Roy's Cherry Creek (3000 East First Avenue, 303-333-9300), the Downtown Broker (821 17th Street, 303-292-5065) and the Swan (200 Inverness Drive West, Englewood, 303-397-6350) have all come pretty close.
