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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Our waitress was so friendly and accommodating. Service was great."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food was just what we expected, very tasty and well presented. Our waitperson was wonderful and helped us celebrate a special birthday by providing a complimentary Chocolate Soufflé with Vanilla Ice Cream in a Praline cup...yum! 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 7/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "They were very crowded with large parties which appeared to leave them understaffed. Our food was good. The ribs were very good. Our server was very helpful ... Just not always available."

  • "Right in downtown, earls offers great food in a great location with wonderful service!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Our dinner was good but the menu had significantly less items than in the past so there wasn't as much to choose from. One reason I chose earl's was because of the diverse menu so I was a little disappointed. "
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "I choose this restaurant to reunite with a friend after 35 years. It was noisier than I was hoping but not horrid. The service was flawless and the food was yummy. Overall the night was a success. I would recommend it to friends."

  • "I found this to be a hip, fun excellent restaurant with great food and service!"
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "As usual, my second experience here was as perfect as my first visit. Seating was immediate, wait staff were attentive, the food was good and the noise level was perfect for a business meeting. Will definitely continue to visit!"
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Our waiter was very attentive and informative, we received our lunch in a timely manner, the atmosphere was upbeat and easy to have a normal level conversation in. I would recommend it to family, friends and co-workers."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "This was my second recent visit, got the same table with an elderly friend upstairs looking down. Wait staff was excellent and very attentive. Had the shrimp and crab Louie and it was wonderful. Great menu, beautiful space and I just loved it."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Food average - poor service - noisy. Table not set for correct number of people on reservation. Had to move from upstairs to noisy corner in bar area. Totally lacking. Manager never apologized or even talked to us. Woman with long dark hair and bangs was very nice and tried hard to move us to quiet area, but it never happened. Disappointing."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "it was clearly not our night. Rowdy crowd, remodeling going on, steaks were all over cooked, albeit not terribly. Just not a night up to their typical standards. Service was superb."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "A modern sense of the 60's "man-club' restaurant. Food was wonderful from appetizer to dessert."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Enjoyed dinner for seven for my wife's birthday. Booked online for six and then added one by calling in. Even had space during restaurant week which was a 'win' for us! Great food - dry rub ribs were amazing! Overall, we sat in a small room enclosed by glass wine bottles. Very cool. Overall, great time and super easy to book a reservation - highly recommend!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Staff was very friendly except for our server who was pretty cold. Food was not as good as it should have been but "fine", not "stellar". We were on the Restaurant Week limited menu which was a great value. We would return, just not a "Stellar" experience. Dry rub ribs appetizer was very good, as was Key Lime Pie for dessert. Main courses were fair..."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The best part of our meal was the nice surprise of a Chardonnay made by Wayne Gretsky. Our server was very nice and the food was good."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Too noisey. If more that two of you, you can not carry on a conversation."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "First time making reservation through Open Table. Upon arrival our table was ready and waiting even though the entire place was packed. Our table was by itself next to the large window and it was very romantic especially for the occasion. Food was excellent and service was prompt. My date loved it so I am happy! Thanks Open Table!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Two days in a row I went to Earl's for business lunches and the staff was incredible. We stayed long, were animated and excited about our business and the staff continued to provide incredible service to us. We asked the for the music to be turned down and they complied immediately. I will be back at Earl's many many more times!!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Took our adult daughter's to Earl's to celebrate Valentine's day. Our oldest lives in Los Angeles and she the the first to mention how the decor was so unique and the ambience to hip. The food was delicious with great portion size. Definitely going back!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Upscale restuarant with appropriate menu with good music and enough flat screens to be a high end sports bar/restaurant. Grab a steak but save room for the banana chocolate cake!!"
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "We have been coming to Earl's for four years when we are in Denver for trade shows. It is consistently EXCELLENT! You can count on it being everything you expect it to be. The service is the best and each and every dish we have ever tried was perfect. I applaud the ownership and management for being able to maintain such high standards of customer service and food quality over the years. Earl's is a MUST when you travel to Denver."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "When we arrived we were greeted promptly and shown to our table. The ambiance was great and we were greeted by our waitress. There were 6 in our party and 5 of us had steaks, three of the five steaks were over cooked, mached potatoes were cold and we were nearly halfway through our dinner when our waitress finally returned to check on us. One of the steaks was taken of the bill but no mention of getting something else or warming up our food. Our bill was over $400 and we did tip 20% but was disappointed in the food and service."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Had a great dinner on a Saturday night with friends. Sat upstairs and our service was wonderful. Had an appetizer, the dip sampler then ordered one of the giant smash burgers! I couldn't stop eating and was able (somehow) to finish it! Great fries too!"
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "Food was great, the service was even better. Great location on 16th street mall, we had a group of 7 and really enjoyed our evening."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "First trip. My wife and I looked for a place downtown on New Years Eve, and Earls was recommended. We were ushered to a back room upstairs which was very poorly lit. That in turn made the small type on the menu almost impossible to read. Luckily we read an on-line menu before we got there and had an idea what we wanted. Other than the hike to our table and the dim lighting, the food was great and the service was more than adequate. I would recommend this restaurant, just be prepared to climb stairs and bring a flashlight in order to read the menu!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "I have been to Earls three times before and had great food - especially their mushroom soup. This time, after I had recommended it to my party, we found that the soup was not up to what I had experienced in prior visits, and we were really disappointed. The soup had a film on it, and the broth was much too thick which inhibited the flavor. I'm not sure if it was 'old' or what was wrong with it, but won't recommend it in future. Also, the chicken-brie-fig sandwich, while interesting, was something I would not recommend. The service and staff were very cordial and our food was delivered fairly quickly."
