    We have heard wonderful things about Sugarbeet from friends and family. After trying it out, we were a little let down. The food was pretty good- but kind of bland. Presentation was fairly upscale, prices were upscale, ambiance was wonderful- but felt the food was lacking. We were intrigued enough to give it one more try, but if we don't leave "wowed" next time, we will save our money for somewhere else. They are attempting to be a Boulder-ish contemporary restaurant and have achieved that in every respect aside from excitement of the food. I have been to numerous places in Boulder with more memorable food at lower cost and equal ambiance.

    I took my parents and wife to Sugar Beet last Friday night. My parents were in town visiting for the first time. We had a wonderful time and good service from the staff. You can tell the place is doing well it was full. The staff seated us on time and service was excellent. We live near Longmont and will come back.

    We have been to Sugarbeet several times over the years since it opened. It is our choice for special occasions in Longmont. The restaurant is owned by two women and the service and attention to detail is very good. They serve fresh local grown foods in innovative and tasty recipes. I have not been disappointed once. We have taken out foodie friends from Boulder and they raved about it. Their lamb shank is very good as is their steak. The atmosphere is nice and they have a nice wine list and open bar. Try it sometime. You will be glad you did!

    Outstanding service and excellent food. My family enjoyed the appetizers/salad and entrees with no complaints. My son and daughter actually said they could try anything on the menu since it all sounded so good. Our waiter knew the specials and menu very well and was enthusiastic with recommendations. Overall a wonderful dinning experience

    The food was outstanding and the service perfect. My only negative would be that the portions were a bit too large. The server could have warned us that the salads were very large and could have been shared by two with more then enough each. I will certainly return again, it is a very good special occasion choice.

    We have eaten at Sugarbeet several times and are always very pleased with the warmth of the service and the quality of the food. The menu changes but each item is unique and delicious. I had the short ribs in a Carolina mustard sauce -- meat falling off the bone, just enough bite to the sauce -- wow! It was served on a bed of kale and black-eyed peas which was really nice. My husband had the grilled shrimp which was outstanding. We will definitely return.

    I took my wife here for her birthday. She is a vegetarian, so it is difficult to find places that create something other than vegetables in pasta. Sugar Beets had a nice selection for her to choose from starting with the Spinach and artichoke appetizer, Soup/salad and an exotic mushroom pasta that was unique and tasted very good even to a carnivore like me.

    The Sugarbeet is in kind of an out-of-the-way location. I pass it several times a week, and was really intrigued to try it. It was better than I expected! Very gourmet - the menu changes quarterly, plus nightly specials. It was great for date night!

    My wife and I and another couple had dinner at Sugarbeet and, as usual, enjoyed it very much. We started with the crab and corn bisque, which was excellent. Four our main courses, my wife had lamb, two of us had the grouper special and the fourth member of our party had halibut. All of us were very satisfied with our meals, and the Sauvignon Blanc we had matched the dinners perfectly. My only (minor) complaint about the grouper is that the tomato mixture on top was very cold, which detracted from the warmth of the meal. The service at Sugarbeet is always top notch, attentive without being intrusive - and very responsive to our every request. All four of us are from Boulder, so we have plenty of choices here, but we enjoy Sugarbeet too.

    We enjoyed Sugarbeet very much. In the comments section when we made the reservation I mentioned that it was our anniversary and the owner sent over a glass of sparkling wine. The dessert came with a little candle. That was such a lovely addition to our already wonderful meal. The tables are spread out so you do not feel like you are right next to others. Like other people we felt the noise level was a little high. Like others we thought it was a little noisy.

    The problem with great restaurants is that you have to wait. Even with a reservation. I knew this was a possibility because once you are seated, you don't want to leave! Our host and owner was most gracious and engaging with us, offering us a complimentary glass of wine due to the length of time, and engaged us regularly, where many other places I have been, you would have been ignored. We felt welcome from the beginning. The meal was excellent, as always. We ended up being the last patrons there, but never felt rushed to leave or uncomfortable. We were a party of 5 and it was a great evening, enhanced by the dining experience at Sugarbeet!

    Sugarbeet is for fine dining locally, and holds its own with more pretentious offerings (maybe 3 in/near Boulder). The food was very nicely prepared and presented, generously, from a menu offering good and varied choices. Our appetizers, respectively duck and shrimp, were outstanding; our main dish, crabcakes, were accompanied by an abundant slaw which lacked, however, any hint of the fresh ginger we had expected. Easter evening is probably not the occasion to expect vibrancy; we were pleased to escape it.

    Our latest experience at Sugarbeet was typical of what we've come to expect--great food, attentive service in a low-key environment. Not quite white table cloth elegance, the restaurant is very nice and a step-up from most Longmont estatlishments in Longmont. The food is always very good, even if the menu is brief and a little short on options. The service is attentive without being intrusive, although this last visit found us looking for our waitperson when we wanted the check. No big deal. The wine list is adequate, but if you're looking for a special bottle, you might be disappointed. We appreciated the extra attention that was offered on our special occasion. How about some small plates?

    This was my fifth time at SugarBeet and it seems to get better and better. My waitperson quickly noticed that the large, noisy party seated next to us was bothersome so, without our asking, reseated us in a quieter part of the restaurant. The food was exceptional with generous portions. My wife and I split the Mushroom Ragout and barely finished our halves. This proprietor was very friendly and gave us some insights into the recipes and history of the place. I cannot say enough positive things about this place and cannot wait to return.

    The location is weird being next to the tracks in the most industrial area of Longmont. However, once inside, the world changes. The decor is excellent as was the service. The food could have been better given the price. ($90 for two dinners, one dessert, and a glass of wine). I had a fantastic vegetarian dish of polenta with mushrooms and my date had the buffalo shoulder and buffalo sausage. The meat was rather tough and the sauce not especially tasty. However, our server was excellent and made the experience salvageable. The creme boule was fantastic as a finish. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant, especially for Longmontians, who really could use a bit more upscale establishments. I would certainly go again.
