    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!

    Our meals were well prepared and the portions were generous. The quality and variety of the ingredients were terrific. The daily specials helped round out the somewhat limited ala carte menu. The wine list has a number of unusual wines and is rather pricey.

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    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.

    For my wife's birthday I wanted to take her someplace special, and a friend recommended Sugarbeet's. It stands as perhaps the best recommendation for dining that I've ever had - the food was exceptional, from the appetizers through the main course (we're not dessert eaters). The ambiance is always a key indicator for a great experience with us - and Sugarbeet's hit it. Nicely lit, tables far enough apart that we couldn't hear our fellow diners' conversations, yet close enough that there was a lively buzz to the place, and a warm, inviting atmosphere. Our waitress was top-notch, appearing whenever our wine & water glasses were low to quietly refill them, and friendly without ever intruding. In a word - Exceptional!

    My husband and I went to Sugarbeet for a relaxing dinner on a Friday night. It was excellent! The food is fresh fare and uses lots of good spice pairings. Service was perfect, truly. The atmosphere is relaxing and the tables are set far enough apart that you are not right up on the table next to you. There were a couple bigger parties - looked to be about an 8 & 10 person group with plenty of room as well. We left very happy and look forward to going back!

    Locally owned neighborhood gem. Seth uses only fresh local ingredients and has an amazing talent for developing uniques taste combinations and presentation. The bison shoulder and sausage plate came with brussel sprouts, but you would not know it...they were finely shredded and presented as the bed for a horseradish potato cake. The seafood special with risotto was extremely tasty and enough for two meals. The flourless chocolate torte was absolutely incrdible, made with good quality chocolate (yes, I am a chocolate snob!) and was almost like fudge in consistency, only much better! Our server was attentive, but not overly so and had a wonderful smile and personality. Truly a great dining experience!

    Sugarbeet again proves they're the best in North Boulder county - we started with the seared Ahi appetizer with avocado - amazing quality of product and the yuzu wasabi sauce was the perfect pairing. For dinner my wife had the vegan stuffed artichokes served on a fava bean sweet apple "hummus" - amazingly fresh and bright. I had the seafood bouillabaisse - I could smell the delicate fennel and touch of Pernod as soon as it was served - the prawns, mahi-mahi and mussels were all cooked to perfection. Service was attentive, friendly and knowledgable - she helped me with a pefect description of the Pays d'Oc wine that paired perfectly with my meal. All in all, Chef Seth continues to raise the bar for inventiveness and quality.

    Appetizers were great, salads were ok, main course was somewhat tasteless. Extremely loud dining room. Could not hear across a table for two it was so loud, partly due to a very loud server who was trying to be funny....more like annoying. Parking is non existent. Had to walk across a metal plate, gravel and around to the front of the building in ice and snow. No view. I won't go back. If I spend that much for dinner, I will go to Flagstaff House in Boulder.

    We were a party of six with three month old baby. Open table had indicated that we could either get in early or late but not the time we wanted (6:45 PM) so we chose the later time. Sweet Beet called and changed us to the time we wanted and were ready for us as we arrived a few minutes early. The food was fresh, tasty and presented beautifully. The wines were lovely and the wait staff lovely as well. Matter of fact as we enjoyed our experience so well, we changed our restaurant for the next night for our of state friends and took them to Sweet Beets. Two nights in a row! The specials had changed and they were so delicious. The crispy egg plant parm was out of this world. A big city gem in Longmont! Highly recommend Sweet Beet !!!!

    Our first visit. Prompt, pleasant (but not patronizing) service. Excellent pork loin. Excellent crab cakes. Excellent chocolate tart for dessert. Excellent wine. Lots of stone and tile, but with curtains and sound-absorbing tiles on a high ceiling, it was easy to carry on a conversation. Oh, there was one misfire. The mango margarita was nothing special.
