A word from Earls Downtown Denver
If you have lofty expectations for an Earls in the mile-high city, Earls Glenarm Denver Restaurant will not disappoint. Let us direct your attention to the atmosphere: warm, welcoming but with a bit of an edge. There's the fact we seem to be getting a bit of a rep for our parties, where we've hosted up to 350 people at one time. For a slightly more intimate feel, try our private wine room with unique wine displays. Then there are the two large patios that look out onto the 16th Street pedestrian mall, one upstairs and one at ground level for two distinctly perfect views of summer. Let's not forget the contemporary, fresh Earls menu. The 24 big-screen plasma TVs. The smiles that greet your arrival. The feeling of knowing you made the right choice for a good night out with your family and friends. C'mon, tell us you're not just a little bit tempted? There's so much more the best thing to do is join us and discover it for yourself. We are located just off the corner of 16th St & Glenarm.

    I have a hearing loss so busy restaurants are tough for me. When I booked the reservation I had asked for a corner table. When I arrived it was waiting for me. The server was top notch and the food was delicious. I'd happily go back.

    The food was tasty, however, we felt forced to choose from the sandwich and noodle menus. These were the only entrees not way over the $20 price point. Because of the price, sort of underwhelmed. Service was super.

    I have visited this location several times for lunch meetings. It's a great place to bring employees and clients alike. The service and level of professionalism has always been spot-on. The quality and consistency of food is there as well. They try to turn their tables at lunch within 40-minutes. This is perfect for the 'white collar' crowd. During this actual visit they were having problems in the kitchen. It took over an hour to receive our food (after ordering). I was making a mental note to contact the management afterwards. There was no need as the front-of-house manager came over after the food arrived and said they would be covering the bill. Customer service like this is the exact reason I always recommend this venue. Thanks.

Great downtown location, positive energy without being too noisy and an attentive and cordial staff and management. Would definitely recommend and will be back.

    Dined on 7/11/2014
    Came for dinner before a show at the Paramount Theater because it was close by and because of the overall reviews. Didn't care for the coconut water but was very pleased with both the flavor and the food preparation of the appetizer and entrees we chose. The service really made the evening though, both with the timeliness of getting our food in time before the show and with keeping us informed when there was an issue with our order. The Thai shrimp appetizer was bursting with flavor and a great dish to share. The Salmon was cooked perfectly without it being too dry or overdone. Will come again.

    This is the perfect go-to place for a lunch meeting on 16th. You typically find local top management-types here doing deals over good eats. While the food is excellent it's a little on the pricey side, but this keeps the tourists away which is nice!

    Earls has been a staple of ours for years. It's always a fun place to dine as you get to watch the crazies on the 16th Street Mall. Food is consistent as well as the drinks. If they are busy, the service can be just a tad slow, but we don't mind as we are usually there to relax. Try the Dynamite Prawn and Mango Roll, Sante Fe Cajun Chicken Salad and the Chicken, Brie and Fig Sandwich...favorites of ours.

    Perfect place for a business lunch: great food and fast, upscale ambiance, nice location right along the 16th St Mall. Big covered patio upstairs. Gets super busy at lunch hour, so I would suggest either getting there before noon or making a reservation.

    We met out-of-town guests at Earl's for dinner, and it was everything I hoped it would be. Great food and drinks in a upscale, but comfortable setting. The appetizers were particularly good. We tried the crispy ribs, the Thai shrimp and the cheese dip with baguette toast - all were all wonderful. Our server was very friendly, attentive, and efficient - I don't know what else I could want in a dining experience.

    My husband and I went to Earl's Downtown on a Friday after work for an early dinner (4:30p); not crowded, service was excellent and food was very good, as usual. I had the Caesar salad with chicken and my husband had the Fettuccine Alfredo with mushrooms. All staff we spoke with were friendly and outgoing. We eat at Earl's frequently and are never disappointed.

    I ate at Earl's solo that night; my partner was coming in from Grand Lake to join me at the Denver Symphony. Becca was my server. She is so very kind, personable...I thoroughly enjoyed this young woman. The service she provided was exemplary as well. Earl's in downtown Denver has a gift in Becca. The salad I ordered (Sante Fe Chicken) was one of the best I have ever had. Patrick and I will return as a couple. Thank you!

    The reason I gave only three stars this time was because of the disappointing brussels sprouts appetizer that we ordered. Brussels sprouts have become very popular on restaurant menus and I have enjoyed some that were over-the-top in flavor and presentation. I am glad that it was not my first experience or I may have never tried them again. They were undercooked which made them hard to cut and to eat and the flavor was quite bland. The topping that was sprinkled on top was actually quite flavorful, but it ended up separate from the brussels sprouts because they had no moisture to meld them together.

    We had never been to Earls before but it is conveniently located across from the Paramount Theater and we had tickets to see ZZ Top. We were expecting to see less than the very classy and well decorated interior. The food was very good. I had a chicken, fig, brie, and spinach sandwich and it really was fantastic. My wife had a burger and couldn't finish the whole thing. We will be back.

    Earls looks like the kind of place that locals know well and visitors are lucky to stumble upon. The bar scene on a Friday night is quite lively and the drinks are tasty and unique. We went for dinner upon recommendation of a friend. The lighting is dim and cozy but it can be a little loud. We sat upstairs where it was quieter. The cuisine is inventive and well thought out. The steaks were excellent quality and the salad was amazing.

    Considering it was restaurant week the food was mediocre. Salad not good, entree of steak was cooked well. We took our dessert to go which was supposed to be chocolate brownie (or something similar) and when we go back to our hotel it was a honeycomb crisp covered in melted vanilla icecream, no chocolate at all. We were sat at a high table upstairs but asked to move to a booth to get away from the bar and TV screens.. Servers were friendly and helpful. Overally a disappointing night.

    Earl's was a wonderful way to end our Saturday in Denver. Our party of 5 was seated upstairs in a large booth. The upstairs space has a beautiful ambiance. Four of us got their signature burgers, which were humongous and delicious, if not a tad greasy. The ten-year-old got buttered noodles, which the server recommended as an off-the-menu kid's meal. They were delicious! They added a garnish of cheese to the top as well, and only charged us $3 for the dish. At the time of our Open Table reservation, we had told Earls that we were celebrating a birthday, which they acknowledged when they confirmed the reservation, but they did not recognize it at all during our visit. A little bit disappointing, but all in all, a very good experience.

    We had a decent dinner at Earl's. The food was better than a lot of places, but not quite as good as a nice steak house. We had steaks (Filet Mignon and Ribeye). Thought they were priced a little high for the quality of the steaks. Next time we'd probably stick with something other than steaks. There is a good variety of food. It is wonderfully located on 16th Street Mall. The atmosphere was energetic. Service was good.
