Child friendly "nice" restaurant in Denver

I told my 5 year old daughter that if she got a good report card, we'd all dress up and go somewhere nice. Well, tomorrow we find out just how good that report card is.

Can anyone recommend someplace upscale where we won't be in the way? Ambiance is more important than food for once. Type of food isn't really important.

Thanks

      We ended up at D Bar Desserts, arriving early and beating the rush on a Thursday night. There were tables available, but my daughter wanted to sit at the counter to watch the desserts being prepared. The food was good (I had steak, my wife got salmon and my daughter had some sliders) but the desserts really were outstanding. My wife and I split the finally a figgin' cheesecake, which was Top Chef quality, and my daughter's cupcake seemed to make her happy.

      Thanks again!

      My 2.5 yr old really enjoyed Second Home in the Cherry Creek Marriot. It's not super-fancy but it has a nice decor and it has an outdoor fire pit.
