    Third Course: Filet De Brie. The high-end cut is packed with fresh herbs and melted cheese and served over a crostini, which they suggest you wash down with the lime vodka/ ginger beer Moscow Muse Read more

    Forest Room 5's claim to fame is their small plates; the summer menu lists 16 small-plate options. The menu will be changing to the fall offerings around October 20. Read more

    A block west of I-25, near the 15th Street bridge, Forest Room 5 is just hip enough to be cool without being trendy. Read more

    Truffle fries and a glass of red wine were perfect on a rainy evening. Ask for Scott at the bar. Fantastic service and certainly coming back again soon.

    The vending machine is restocked twice a week with items including take-home marijuana tests, American Spirit cigarettes, expandable sponge spiders and various pulp-fiction novels from the 1970s.

    The food is great and the filet is the best I've had, but the wait staff epitomize hipster yuppie and act like they have better things to do than serve you your food.

    This place was the best! The inside kind of smells like an armpit so head outside and enjoy the summer nights in the teepee or near the creek!

    Awesome fries, but you have to fight like hell to get service here... The "doing you a favor taking your order" rings true.

    Service here leaves some.to be desired but the bar drinks are usually pretty good. Sit at the teepee at night time.

    If you're looking for douchey, you will most certainly find it here. Skin pants hipsters and that asshole wearing the full bike racing gear on his way around the block frequent this joint.

    The bar staff acts like getting you a drink is a favor you haven't yet earned. I'd recommend this place to my worst enemy.
