  • Not what it used to be

    This used to be a 5-star restaurant, always leaving us wanting to come back again. The last two times we ate here, we could not help but notice that the food went from outstanding to competent; still good but certainly nothing exceptional, and nothing that we would look forward to ordering again. And the prices went up a lot. Entrees alone are now +/ - $30. The by-the-glass Cab was pretty uninspiring, especially considering how many great wine values there are out there now. I found myself wondering if management had changed or the chef/owner had moved on. If you haven't been there in a while, do curb your expectations. At one time this was our favorite restaurant in the area, and that has certainly changed for us.

    We have dined several times and always enjoy coming back. The service is excellent and the food is always great. Unique items as well as everyday entree's that are made a little more special. Decent wine list but would love to see a little more variety in both New World and Old World wines but you can always select a good bottle to pair with dinner.

    I had the Cornish game hen which was okay/good. Potatoes were more like the size of pearl onions. All in all good. Another meal was the ribs which looked and reported as excellent. Probably not tradition, however, still would be nice to give some little consideration to a birthday celebration of some sort. Just an idea. I enjoy sitting at the bar more than a table to be in the mix of things. Thanks for asking. P.S. Our wait person did bring he wrong dessert but quickly replaced it once the error was caught.

    THis will be our third time here. We always have very nice dinners here. My only comments are that most of the portions are so big, it would be easy to split them. We ended up taking almost half of our dinners home. For some reason this time, the meal seemed to be lacking some of the 'specialness' that we have had our other times...not too much - but - just a little. Maybe this was just an off night.

    My $40 steak was charred and the excuse was the other cook left early to watch fireworks, not cool. We ate half because we had no choice, they only offered to take half off the steak price.

    1st time customers. From the moment we stepped in, we were treated with respect, gracious hostess and manager made us feel like they were GLAD we came, were given choice of inside or outside dining. Food was excellent, specials were varied and well explained, portions were plentiful (usually never take home leftovers but did this time). Waitress (Elissa) was MARVELOUS!! There when you needed her, did not hover, good wine paring, everything was great with the exception of the noise level. Too many hard surfaces for noise to bounce off.

    I went back a second time based on the great experience I had the first. This time, however, the noise level was terrible. You had to nearly shout to be heard accross the table. Additionally the restaurant was very warm, to the point of being uncomfortable, perhaps partly due to the full house that night. The big disappointment was the food. We both had the evening special, yellow tail tuna. I specifically asked if it would be sushi rare and was assured by the staff that it would, my serving was dry, half the size of my friend's serving and well done. It looked to me like I got the remains of the day. Since my first visit was very good, I'll give them another chance. The staff and service was great.

    Recently, we had dinner with friends at Sugarbeet and enjoyed most of the experience. The food was pricey but awesome. The wine list was great. The service was amazing (Thank you Deb!). But, there was a screaming kid at the table next to us. This is not really Sugarbeet's fault; what parent brings a screaming 2-year old to a fancy restaurant? Folks, please.. next time go to McDonald's with the kids. if you want to come to a place where adults can meet, dine, share a drink and conversation, try out Sugarbeet. Just watch out for the kids!

    My husband and I wanted "grown up" food for my birthday dinner and Sugarbeet certainly fit the bill. We started with the PorkBelly over grits with Cajun BBQ sauce. OMG- we wanted to lick the plate. It was delicious and perfect. We followed with a caprese salad - light and lovely. And our entrees were delicious too. We will definitely return for another special occasion.

    Had high expectations so we were slightly disappointed. Food was ok. We had two appetizers, a large salad, two entrees to split (had to send one back for being served only lukewarm). Halibut entree was decent sized, cooked nicely but too dry. Brussel sprouts appetizers were not tender........too chewy. There were four of us and we each had two glasses of wine......total bill with tip close to $200 so not inexpensive.

    We are lucky to have a restaurant the caliber of Sugerbeet here in Longmont! Great continental cuisine, knowledgeable staff, at affordable pricing--perfect for special occasions or simply a great meal with friends. The name refers to Longmont's past as sugerbeet farmland and the location is near the old sugarbeet plant and rail shipping docks. Real old-town in the midst of re-development. Will return often!

    We booked this restaurant based on great reviews for our 32nd anniversary and were excited to be celebrating our special night at a new place. We told them it was our anniversary when we made the reservation - no mention of it by the hostess or our waitress that evening. I have a severe food allergy to lentils, and asked if one vegetable could be substituted for another that was already on the night's menu, given that I wasn't sure of the nature of a certain bean included in my entree's presentation. A $2.00 substitution charge was added to the bill - not a big deal moneywise, but really? Insulting and am I to feel guilty that I was born with this allergy? The substituted vegetable was one that was already prepared in the kitchen.

    We came because we heard everything was locally brought in. And they were right. We loved the ambiance. We loved the service. And we loved that there wasn't a huge menu to look over. Seasonal items only, and their were outstanding. We had the spinach stuffed artichoke appetizer...... Yummy! And the lamb shank..... Mmmmm can't wait to go back!

    We were hoping for a nice place to celebrate my birthday, a relatively quiet, unassuming, fine-dining experience with great service. We found it in our first visit to Sugarbeet. The service was great (thanks, Deb!) - she was attentive but knew instinctively when to give us our quiet time. My partner and I were terrifically surprised as things began coming to the table. Exquisitely prepared appetizers from a menu that was not overbearing or intimidating. Our entrees were stunning in their presentation and taste (better even than Boulder's Flagstaff). In the last week we've recommended this unpresumptuous restaurant to our best friends (who all are fine-dining-o-philes like us), perhaps as many as ten times. Please go, and tell your friends.

    I'm glad we tried this Zagat-recommended restaurant, hidden in Longmont. Fresh fish flown in everyday!- My Halibut was done perfectly, with as much attention paid to the bed of spinach, white beans and red peppers as to everything else. Delicious! Our server was prompt and knowledgeable about the food and the wine. This is our new destination restaurant.

    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.

    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!

    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.

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.
