    I was really impressed by this place on paper, and after grabbing a drink on the rooftop bar, I felt really excited to try the restaurant below. They were so thoughtful about celiacs, food allergens and dietary restrictions in general. But when I tested their Vietnamese Crepe dish with my NIMA sensor and gluten was found, it all went downhill for me. Our waiter was sweet as pie and willing to help out in whatever way he could, but the manager came out to speak to me and was very condescending. She insisted that there was no absolute way that there was gluten in the dish since it was made with gf ingredients. She didn't care what my "little sensor" said, insisted the line staff agreed that it was impossible that there was any cc, and so on. She left and came back a second time to insist they weren't at fault, but they could bring me something else. I had already lost my appetite at that point, and already had another order of food that I could test and eat. They were the new yellowfin tuna tostadas, which ended up being safe and amazing, but the prior interactions with the manager ruined it for me. It stinks to have a disease where you get violently ill if you ingest even trace gluten, and then to be treated like that. The food that was safe was very tasty, though. The waiter was apologetic, but the manager was rude. And I feel like managers are usually our main allies in safe eating experiences at restaurants. I don't live in Denver, but if I did, I wouldn't go back based that treatment alone. Should I come back and find gluten found on a Nima reading, I don't need to be shamed by the restaurant. I think it was a blow to their pride, but still it wasn't acceptable.

    Really fun vibrant (loud) environment. Make reservations or try for a booth in the bar. Sweet potato fries. Dosa.

    Linger was a fantastic experience. Well trained staff and wonderful food. A good portion of the menu was already GF!

    My son took me to brunch here and I had the adobo pork benedict. Absolutely delicious! Cool atmosphere and great views. Highly recommend!

    I am going to be fat and happy for a month after my meal at Linger. Excellent gf notations on the menu. Went on Tuesday for the 3 courses for $30. Definitely worth it. I wanted to bribe the chef to teach me how to make the Vietnamese crepe made from coconut and rice flour (vegan). The Thai fried rice was the best I've ever had and the gluten free dessert trio and Thai snow were the perfect end to a great meal.

    Love it here. Great BBQ tacos and I've always felt like they take special care when you talk to them about your restrictions.

    I ate lunch at Linger yesterday (7/22/15) and woke up this morning with the obvious signs that I had been glutened. I made it very clear to the staff that it was an allergy and not just a request. I will never eat here again after the many hours of pain I went though. such a shame that a "fancy" place like this can't even provide truly gluten free food.

    I was not impressed. the food did not make any type of impression. I can't even say it was seasoned well, or much at all. this place is overhyped. on a positive note, my husband liked the sliders.

    This is a fantastic place in a super unique industrial style space. Multiple GF options. Oaxacan tamale and Indian Dosa were two of the best. Estrella Daura on the beer list. After a flight from SF and being the first night in Denver I felt right at home with the quality and atmosphere.
