Great Brunch!I took my Mom here for Mother's Day brunch. The atmosphere was very nice - Mom especially liked the stained glass hanging lamps. We ordered the Lamb Hash and the Sundried Tomato and Fennel Scramble. The Lamb Hash was very flavorful, and it wasn't too spicy for my Mom's tastes. The Sundried Tomato and Fennel scramble was great! I would strongly recommend this place!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVegetarian DelightDined with vegetarian friends on small plates (cauliflower salad with tahini vinaigrette, spanikopita, baba ganoush) and the most savory chick pea and yogurt stew. I'm dreaming about that stew and salivating. This place is not to be missed. Very reasonably priced, too.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Monday dinnerWent in for the Monday Mac & Cheese night and ended up trying several dishes. The highlights were the flatbread, mixed olives and the cinnamon donuts!

Service was appropriately friendly and helpful. Yummy cocktails and nice variety of delicious dishes great for sharing family style. Definitely something for everyone. Flat bread was tasty, nice take on brussel sprouts, great fries. For dinner licked the plate of ribs clean. Cod and clam was delicious also. For dessert you have to try the sour cherry crepe cake it's like nothing I have ever had before. All in all a great experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely fresh flavorful food.Lovely fresh flavorful food.

Perfect for a table of 5-63/2/2013 12:00:00 AM4 hours at Golden Beetle was a boasWe spent the entire afternoon and early evening at Golden Beetle. We attended a whiskey/vodka sampling and class on distilling. If you ever get a chance to take a cocktail class here (from Andy, their outstanding bartender) don't miss it. Worth the $50 price. Included outstanding drinks, appetizers (including their specialty olives, hummus and pita as well as their wonderful spiced fries and a lot of fun and learning. We are planning on going back for more soon.
Then we stayed for dinner which was outstanding. My bride had the Carlton Farms’ Slow Roasted Baby Back Pork Ribs and I had the Savory Chickpea & Lemon Stew - walnut,yogurt, crouton with Lamb Sausage. We both tasted everything and it was outstanding. It was a super!2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprised to find a burgerSurprised to find a burger on the menu so I tried it and it was great with some unique spices and flavors.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PMI loved Golden Beetle theI loved Golden Beetle the first two times I went. The food was delicious. It was perfectly flavored and seasoned. Those were both 5 star nights. The third time was a different story. The Brussels Sprouts had a lot more chilies than the prior two times. It was so heavily spiced I couldn't finish them. The spanakopita was too rich. Both my husband and I loved both dishes the first two times, but this time it was different. He described it as sharper. I thought it too creamy. My experience with Tilth was that it was inconsistent. When it was good, it was one of the best, but when it wasn't good it was disappointing. I am hoping this was a one time off night and will try it again in a few months.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PMReview of Golden Beetle'sReview of Golden Beetle's new Mac and Cheese Monday: The mac and cheese was awesome! Hot, cheesy and fresh to order. Lots of choices and all in our party were very satisfied including a vegan, a gluten-free vegan, a mostly lactose free omnivore and me, an all-around omnivore. The romaine salad is not to be missed and who can argue with $2 Rainier tall boys? Can't wait to go again and try a new sauce/cheese/meat/veg combo.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
