Given Rialto Café’s Location on the 16th Street Mall, a little glitz is to be expected, and there’s no better place in downtown Denver to sit back and take in the picturesque energy of the mall. A staple in the downtown dining circuit, the Rialto specializes in classic American fare with modern twists, and serves up the best in throwback cocktails. When combined with the energetic and airy atmosphere, the cozy booths, and warm setting, it all begins to resemble the feel of a smoky, swingin’ 60s supper club. While some of the dishes are familiar territory in American dining, the overall menu is anything but. Rialto takes on old favorites peppered with bold, rich flavors and pleasing presentations, as well as offering a surprise or two along the way. Featuring hand-cut steaks, seasonally fresh seafood, and an Italian dish or two, the menu is diverse, convenient, and a palate-pleaser for all tastes. The Rialto Cafe reminds you that dining and entertainment do indeed belong together and is within walking distance to many popular attractions like the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Colorado Convention Center, Denver Pavilions, Coors Field, Pepsi Center, Mile High Stadium and the RTD Light Rail. Rialto Café is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a fabulous weekend brunch featuring Denver’s Best Bottomless Mimosas with exotic fruit juice bar, and our happy hour happens every day 3-6PM!
