A word from Beast and Bottle
beast + bottle is a rustic American restaurant serving craft dinner and brunch.

Run by siblings Paul C. Reilly, who mans the burners, and Aileen Reilly, who oversees front of house, beast + bottle is located in Denver’s Uptown neighborhood.

The “beast” refers to the restaurant’s appreciation for the whole animal, utilizing all parts to honor its integrity. The owners’ relationships with farmers, ranchers and purveyors bring ethically and humanely raised, responsibly harvested and organic (whenever possible) ingredients to the table.

The “bottle” refers to drinks. b+b’s wine program is influenced by the European tradition of drinking wine how you’d like – whether that’s a glass or by the liter.

The menu changes whenever the kitchen pleases based on what’s in-season and what the cooks are enjoying at the moment. What remains constant is a steady focus on sustainability and versatility of ingredients.

    overall this was a positive experience, but the dishes were a bit uneven. of the four of us, one found the lamb dish too tough to eat, while another thought the lamb was fine. the pork sirloin dish was flavorful, though verging on overcooked. pumpkin seed cake was a standout. the service was friendly and we really liked the young lady who helped out with a wine selection. generally, i love the frequent menu changes at B&B, but that means sometimes the menu is more enticing than others. i don't find the november 2014 menu to be one of their strongest, but it's still a great restaurant.

  • Lovely, intimate farm-to-table spot
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/23/2014
    My boyfriend and I dined here after a matinee at the Curious Theatre - what a find! The waitstaff took wonderful, unobtrusive care of us at this small, cozy restaurant. Although it's hard to pick out a "best thing" from our experience, my boyfriend and I both appreciated the intimate, close-in atmosphere - we found ourselves talking quietly and being able to hear each other perfectly, unlike many trendy spots. We also loved the locally-sourced food, which was prepared exquisitely and the well-crafted cocktails. We will be back!

    If you are big on the farm to table thing, this place shines. They bring in the whole animal, perform all the butchering, and use as much of the whole animal as possible. The food is simply wonderful. The wait staff is also very good. They work as a group to ensure you are never left wanting. The bar mixes up excellent libations. Do yourself a favor and do the unlisted chef's tasting menu, you can't go wrong.

    Beast & Bottle did such a phenomenal job of making our party feel special. I arranged for a surprise birthday dinner, with 6 people, for my fiance. The moment we sat down and looked at the menu, we read "Happy Birthday, Nate Dogg!!" which was something they had done all their own. It was such an unexpected touch! Not mention they provided us with a complimentary champagne toast before we started our meal. They also let me drop off the birthday cake that afternoon, storing it in their fridge. Overall, the ambiance was warm and inviting, the portion sizes were generous but not too large, the drinks were spot on, and the service was great. I would highly recommend Beast & Bottle to anyone looking for a meal well spent!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience here. The food was delicious, well presented and scrumptious. It has a good variety for the vegetarians and meat lovers. I had the cauliflower dish, which was nummie. My husband had the sole and cleaned his plate. We are from out of town, but this was a return visit for me; my husband's first time there. He liked it so much that we went back for a glass of wine the next night. I would highly encourage all to try Beast and Bottle, we had a great feast and lovely evening.

    I've been to Beast and Bottle for brunch 3 times and I'm never disappointed. The Bloody Mary is absolutely delicious and comes garnished with black salt and a buttery pickle (though at $9, it is a bit pricey). Even though I've wanted to try other things on the menu the Hatch Green Chile Chicken Sausage with Cornbread is too good not to order. We took our 9-year-old with us and she enjoyed the food and the wikistix they gave her to play with. The service is stellar and the decor is farmhouse chic - amazing light fixtures. We will undoubtedly be back soon for our 4th visit!

    I visited Beast and Bottle for the first time for brunch. The food was just fine (could have been better for the price) but my dish was good. However the service and pace of service was awful. We waited a long time for our food, and then our waiter seemed to forget that we were there. It wasn't terribly busy either, so it didn't seem like there was a good excuse. There are plenty of other brunch spots with good food but better service, so we won't be back.

    This place has a great concept, but in my mind, lacked execution. The food was good, not great. The flavors were bland and nothing really stood out to me. For the money, go to fruition, or any number of the comparable restaurants. While there, the flavors sing and dance, and I leave feeling like I experienced some form of culinary art, here everything was good, but not GREAT!! With the prices and overall feel of the restaurant, I was expecting GREAT!! Portions were small, but I didn't leave hungry. The fig flatbread and lardo toast were the highlights.

    The dishes were incredibly complex and rich. A fine wine to compliment will be suggested by the friendly and responsive wait staff. And, if you're there for a special occasion, read your menu closely...you'll want to take it home. Such a lovely evening. I'm definitely coming back.

    My wife and I were astonished at how good our meals were. Our aps, wild mushrooms en cartaccio and braised goat with celery root were beautiful, delicious and properly portioned. We both had squab for our mains. The pigeon was prepared perfectly. It's a great dish. The wine Service is very user friendly. Many wines are available by the glass, half liter and liter, making multiple choices possible, even for the two of us. The service seemed a little inattentive at times, but overall our dinner was marvelous.

    I had been one other time and got the the Pork Shoulder Tostada - it was decent. This time I got the Chicken Sausage and could have eaten 5 plates - it was SO delicious. I also tasted my friend's "Pigs in a Blanket" - out of this world. Beast and Bottle is creative with their brunch dishes, it's truly hard to pick one to order. Go with a group so you can have a variety of options on the table :)

    We walked in 10 minutes early for our reservation (make one, this place is intimate) and we were greeted immediately and at our table in minutes. Nothing disappointing about the beer (only one on tap, though)/wine/drink list. But the real magic starts with the small plates. Such hard choices. We went with the B + B Meat Plate and Hamachi Crudite. Truly devine. Main courses and desserts were also top notch. Back to the service, though. Entirely flawless. And that's why we'll be back.

    Their seasonal, whole-animal approach (wasting as little of an animal as possible, by using it in different dishes) and the fact that they do their own charcuterie in-house are all great reasons to go to B&B. Or you could go just because you love truly delicious food that makes you put your phone down and stop whatever you're doing. It is that good and it is that special! Our meal was a series of hits, from the apps through to the delicious entrees and dessert.

    Good food, the rabbit entree was alright. The small plates were way more flavorful[the flatbread, The charcuterie plate with duck liver. My friend ordered something that had a whole entire shallot on it.. us 3 being culinary-inclined didn't really agree with it, but hey, what do we know. Overall this isn't a slap at the food its a slap at the service. The fact that the 2 guests at my table explained more and knew more about the plates infront of us than our server was baffling and amusing all the same. Great food none the less, I think the rabbit+pasta dish could use another element of flavor. And I think the gnocci was a little bland but I digress, it was free.

    We started off with some duck confit poutines (one of my personal favorite dishes) that were smothered in a bacon gravy. The only thing this lacked was maybe some cheese curds instead of just melted, but that's just a personal preference and no way detracted from the dish. After enjoying a mimosa and bloody mary, we moved on to some lamb shank hash and a chicken sausage. The chicken sausage had some green chiles with just the right amount of heat coming through. The lamb shank hash was fantastic; the only defect was that the potatoes were just a little underdone. All in all, Beast & Bottle was superb and we will be back.

    The mushroom Po Boy was outstanding. Mimosas were excellent but small so I ordered a few. My boyfriend had the habenaro bloody which was fabulous.

    This was our first time going to beast + bottle for dinner, we have been twice for brunch in the past and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. This occasional was to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. We decided on the set-course dinner for two. Everything was outstanding and incredibly flavorful from appetizer to dessert. Our mule drinks were awesome, so delicious! Staff was very attentive, water rarely stayed low for more than a minute, plates cleared quickly. Such a great little restaurant we plan on returning very soon for more dinners. Want to try everything on the menu and they were very accommodating to my girlfriend's food allergies.

    Overall the food was fantastic, but it always make me say "What?!!" When you pay $4 for a bread to go with your mussels, and it is literally two bites. Then I ordered the side of carrots, and it was a bed of pasta with about 12 nibs of carrots in it for $12. A bit ridiculous, up the portion size and you may feel more satisfied at the cost/benefit ratio.

    Brunch here last Sunday. I had the oats with root vegetables and poached egg -- basically a savory oatmeal. wonderful and exceeded expectations. The eggs are from their own nearby flock of the chickens and very fresh and rich. My wife had the pork confit with fried green tomatoes. That was terrific too. Better than average pork belly and a great contrast to the earthiness of the black-eyed peas and the acid of the tomatoes. The drinks were creative and well made. Service was attentive and friendly. All in all, one of the better brunches we had had in a while.
