One of the best restaurants in Denver. Food is amazing.
Excellent restaurant. Will definitely go back. Went for our anniversary and they even printed special menus for us that read "happy anniversary" as well as brought us complimentary champagne. I love this place. Highly recommend..
The first surprise was the call I received the day before confirming the reservation. Any special occasion? Any food sensitivities? Any time constraints? Great predictor.
Service was among the best I've seen in the US. The menu is interesting, but filled with culinary terminology we needed google's help with. Portions are modest, but tasty. The downgrade on the food was due to a poor cut of veal loin; the cook looked perfect, but I couldn't get my knife through it.
An alternative dish was happily provided.
If you are curious about farm to table and haute cuisine you might like Beast + Bottle.
Order the Pearsonal Jesus cocktail! It's a delight! The octopus was not what I expected, but it was pleasant. The duck pasta with consomme was strange and a very meager portion - a little disappointing, but the duck prosciutto was excellent. The leg of lamb and agnolotti with winter veg was excellent. Wait staff were all attentive, friendly, professional. Pricey for such small portions. Nice ambiance.
Dopest spot in Denver.
Spectacular menu. Loved that you can go big with a meat entree or small plate it up and share with friends. Cocktail situation is out of this world, and we all got schooled on a new amazing bourbon from Chicago. So many things on that menu to come back and try.
Second time for brunch at Beast and Bottle. Our new favorite brunch spot when we come to Denver. Friendly, well informed staff and exceptional food!
Birthday night out
Nice decor. Friendly staff. Yummy cocktails. Wine list was too eclectic. It looked like they were trying to offer a bunch of unknown wines they bought at a cheap price and pass them off as “gems”. We ordered two different reds. Both inferior. Rethink that Wine program.
Appetizers were delicious. My entree was a sous vide lamb.. I think they forgot to turn on the sous vide machine. It was so tough I sent it back. I saw another guy send his back too. My wife’s lamb pasta was excellent. Panna Cotta was Devine.
It was good, a bizarre take on "chef's special" where you choose the majority of the foods you eat. But alas, to each their own. I don't think it's overpriced but in Denver, far better value out there. Worth a try, then move on. Decent experience altogether.
I wasn't crazy about the risotto and was super confused by the spinach dip thing, but the service was good . I was dining with a teenage boy (big appetite and not a fan of small plates or sharing) and an elderly woman who had a hard time hearing our very gracious server.
Consistently knocking it out of the park. Service is never short of fantastic. Menu is exciting and imaginative. Wine pairings are complex and thoughtful. Makes my tastebuds get jiggy and never disappoints.
Pasta was undercooked, hard as a rock. Had 9pm reservation, didn’t get seated until 9:45. Polite host did buy us a round of drinks but were late to the show post dinner.
Such an amazing place to eat! This time we had the four course option and that was incredible. Highly recommend.
We have been here 6 or 7 times before and always had great experiences. This time was very bad for various reasons: they sat us in a very tight corner where I literally could not raise my arm near the wall; it took 30 minutes to get another drink; it took over an hour to get our next course (meanwhile the table next to us had at least 5 different servers coming by); despite me calling to confirm the night before, and disclosing I had a fish allergy, reconfirming my allergy when we checked in, I was told my lamb pasta dish had fish in it after ordering it over an hour before. We cancelled the remainder of our meal and went and picked up pizza. Our experience this time was not consistent with our previous meals and did not in any way meet our expectations.
Loved it! Very accommodating to specific dietary requirements.
Our Sunday lunch at Beast was pleasant. The patio was nice and the staff were very attentive and helpful. The food was disappointing though. We had the pancake souffle and the chicken thigh sandwich. The souffle was interesting but quite dry. The chicken seemed really salty.
Sat at the BAR which was better than any table, had a great conversation with JON, who made amazing drinks and kept things flowing with wine that matched the dishes. Beef Tartare was amazing, Pork too, fun to hang with the bar people. If you only go there for JON and have a drink that’s good enough. Very talented and makes the evening memorable.
First time to Beast and Bottle and we love everything about this restaurant! The food is outstanding with lots of flavor and depth. Everything is seasoned and cooked to perfection. Plating and presentation is nice. Service was friendly and reasonably timely considering quality. Overall highly recommend dining experience for date night or special occasion!
This was our second time at this restaurant and once again we weren't impressed with the food at all. Considering how expensive everything was we would have thought the food would be mind blowing but it wasn't even mediocre. Pasta was over done and oysters were terrible. Service was great and so were our mixed cocktails but we came for the food. Should have went to Acorn...
Was here with friends around a business meeting. We picked this restaurant because the food sounded interesting and edgy and we're willing to forgive an occasional loser plate, of which there was I think one of the eight small plates we ordered. Also, the wines by the glass list were quite interesting (indigenous red blend from Hungary and another from Macedonia). So, if you're not looking for run of the mill food it's a pretty good place.
Beast and bottle was overall very underwhelming. Everything on the menu sounds phenomenal and I wanted to like everything. But nothing
Don’t mistake Beast + Bottle for just another place for lunch of dinner, as are many on its avenue.
There on a Friday night with two friends who did not know Denver at all, we chose to do the B+B’s version of an all-table tasting menu with matched wines, a menu option both somewhat different from the usual rigidity of that sort of option, and amazingly personalized. Each of us had our appetizer option and our entrée choice from the entire menu, and we were all to have a “surprise” middle course which would be the same for everyone. One of our party chooses to avoid gluten, and that presented absolutely no challenge to the kitchen. After an introductory glass of sparkling, we were met by an extremely knowledgeable sommelier who brought four different wines to the table for each of the individually-chosen courses, matching each quite generous pour with the particular dish before each of the diners.
The food was exquisite, complex flavours carefully woven into pure pleasure, and explained in some detail before the orders were finalized: my appetizer was duck cappelletti in a jasmine consommé, with mushrooms and duck prosciutto; and my main of heritage pork + confit with fermented apples, parsnips, and an apple-juniper berry jus. Both were presented in an artfully pleasing and convenient-for-eating plating, and were an adventuresome sojourn through the possibilities their ingredients held. The wines chosen to accompany these could not have been more perfect, and the broad cellar available to the very astute sommelier added a new dimension in our understanding of and appreciation for this neighbourhood gem.
The service was perfect, with all waitstaff informed and pleasant; one diner’s plate was held back until she had returned from a brief absence from the table.
The pricecame as a very pleasant surprise for this group, accustomed to such fine dining in larger coastal cities: $100 per diner came in well under anything anticipated for such an experience.
We had a delicious brunch & cocktails on a Saturday morning.
Waitress was amazing! Very knowledgeable and fun made our date so enjoyable!! Will definitely be back again!
Definitely the experience we were hoping for, a quaint vibe with farm to table deliciousness and service beyond excellence. We enjoyed it all!
We went for brunch. The menu was limited and very....trendy. If you’re very adventurous from a culinary standpoint it might be your bag, I found the menu choices overly complex and difficult to decide on simply because the flavor combinations were hard to intuit (doesn’t help that I don’t care for eggs and literally every single brunch dish had eggs integrally involved). The server was no help deciphering the menu, she wasn’t able to provide any details on the food and wasn’t aware of what was in certain dishes. The pork shoulder tostada I got ended up being pretty good, but it was a total shot in the dark based on the menu description. Overall I’d say the food was fine but not exceptional, certainly not worth the effort.
Wow. Really good. Lamb raging was awesome and wine by the litro was a winner.
This was an outstanding restaurant with wonderful food. The best we have had in a very long time and would most definitely go back. It is a must go to for special occasion or just to grab a small plate at the bar. Just outstanding.
This is my favorite brunch place in Denver, it’s always so cozy.
Wonderful experience, service was accommodating and experienced. Food and beverage was delicious and well crafted.
Went for brunch to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Everything was great and they treat us and especially her very well. All the dishes were creative an tasty.
Beast and Bottle was outstanding! From the greeting by the host who takes your coat, to the awesome service by the team. The chef does an amazing job by making you savor every bite. My fiance and I had a lovely evening and can't wait to come back!
Ambiance was very nice. Presentation of food was exceptional as was the service.
The tuna appetizer was very good, and they have a small but nice selection of interesting wines.
Our server was wonderful. But the main courses were mediocre at best. We ordered a red snapper-- our favorite fish-- but it was not cooked well, and it was in a cream sauce way too rich for the fish. We also ordered the pork which was five tenderloin-like medallions. It was fine, but no better than fine. Nothing special or interesting in the flavors. The prices of the entrees do not reflect the quality of food. Not trying to hurt the restaurant but just didn't think it was worth the money.
Awesome food and drinks. Home made sauces (aoili, hollondaise, bernaise- yum!), attentive service. I love the options of water- bubbly or flat, and having a salad instead of potatoes as a side.
Went there for brunch, had the chicken sandwich. Truly outstanding. Great service, enjoyed the music they played.
Every dish was exceptional! We all had a different dish and all would order again.
One of the top 3 meals I’ve eaten in my life times. Get the sampler menu with the wine pairings!
First time in for brunch. Our server, Adam, was great. Five in our group. Three ordered the special, pork belly, black eyed peas, kale, poached egg, good. The favorite meal was the black pepper bourbon sausage on the Wake up menu. YUM-O
If ordering mimosas, ask about the Cavo litro, after ordering the fourth mimosa, noticed the liter on the bevy menu, much better on the cost side.
We’ll be back.
