I will be in Denver for a conference in June and have arranged a dinner for 8 here at 7:15 pm on a weeknight. A couple of the attendees are older and all of us would like to be able to talk to one another. Is this restaurant loud, or more of a usual volume? No insult intended, but here in San Francisco many of the otherwise lovely restaurants are deafeningly loud. Some combination of "trendy" decor (i.e. lots of steel and glass) and energetic/happy hour types (which can be fun also, but not for this group!)
Any experiences appreciated.
