If you have lofty expectations for an Earls in the mile-high city, Earls Glenarm Denver Restaurant will not disappoint. Let us direct your attention to the atmosphere: warm, welcoming but with a bit of an edge. There's the fact we seem to be getting a bit of a rep for our parties, where we've hosted up to 350 people at one time. For a slightly more intimate feel, try our private wine room with unique wine displays. Then there are the two large patios that look out onto the 16th Street pedestrian mall, one upstairs and one at ground level for two distinctly perfect views of summer. Let's not forget the contemporary, fresh Earls menu. The 24 big-screen plasma TVs. The smiles that greet your arrival. The feeling of knowing you made the right choice for a good night out with your family and friends. C'mon, tell us you're not just a little bit tempted? There's so much more the best thing to do is join us and discover it for yourself. We are located just off the corner of 16th St & Glenarm.

Great food and drinks. A little loud and our group of 4 was crammed into a small booth. Still had a good time!

Earl’s was a great experience! I am from Atlanta and this restaurant was a true Colorado experience! The service was great and the food was even better. The wait staff including Blair and Jennifer were great! I will definitely recommend this restaurant to others traveling to Denver. The only negative was constantly asking me for other food to order when I told the waitress that will wait and let them know.

Waitress was not very friendly and forgot about us a few times, in fact we had to ask over and over for water and soy sauce for our sushi and never even received the soy sauce. It was not even a busy night.

Made reservations which required myself and my date to dine upstairs. When we showed up the upstairs area was closed and was not to be opened at all for the night.

It was very loud and we could not hear each other so not a good place for conversation. However, we were there right at 5 pm and happy hour. We all had salads and they were excellent.

This location had a great view and was perfect for the summer. The menu didn't have the same options as the restaurant in the DTC and that was very disappointing. The girl who waited on us was nice but the staff in the DTC were outstanding.

Our experience has mixed reviews. We waited for at least 5-10 minutes at the hostess stand and finally went to the bar to get a hostess. They said sorry they were short-handed. Not a good start. There was a very large loud group on the other side of the restaurant (not their fault) but we had to listen to them the whole time. I felt the pricing was a bit high. The food was good overall. The wine prices were way overpriced. My glass of "nothing special" wine was $13 for a tall pour. Lastly, we had asked for drink specials. They had a few craft beers for $3/pint. Great news until we got the bill and the waitress didn't take the discounts off and had to have her settle that prior to paying tab. Overall, I don't think I will be back. Too bad....I was looking forward to their happy hour specials, but Ill go somewhere else more than likely.

Steaks ordered medium rare came out well done. They said the chef went home and a new guy took over. Then they replaced the steaks and comped them so all ended well. Just seems inexcusable, though, as it’s so basic. Better luck to you if you try Earl’s.

Our server, Rachel, was great. She took the time to get to know us and made the dining experience that much better. The food was delicious, as well. I will say- I'm surprised they don't do anything for birthdays. If the reservation asks for an occasion, it's fair to think the restaurant will celebrate it. I was disappointed by that.

Both my husband and I called Earls to let them know it was my birthday and that we wanted a quiet table upstairs and we were assured that would happen. However, when we arrived they sat us downstairs. We addressed this with them and they moved us, but I wondered why we called in the first place since no one followed our request. Also, they never mentioned they knew anything about the birthday - most places offer a free dessert for birthdays. The cocktails we ordered were terrible so we went to wine instead, but the food was really good!

Have to say, I love Earl's. It is, on the surface, pretty unassuming - a bustling restaurant right in the 16th Street Mall downtown. Always really busy with what seem to be business lunches (I tend to go there more during the day, so cannot speak as well on the evening scene). So you expect the usual sort of uninspired fare - burgers, steaks, salads. They have that stuff, but it is really elevated, and it is a really diverse menu with a large selection of both Asian and Mexican dishes - all of which is actually really well done. And most importantly (for me) they have a whole "plant-based" section of the menu, and the menu options are all excellent. At most places like this they MIGHT have an "Impossible Burger" as an option, or a few things where they can take the cheese or sauce off and make it Vegan, but then it ends up bland and uninspired. Here the plant-based options are on the menu, and are all interesting and delicious. And service is also always excellent! (I did eat here before going on a plant-based diet and can also attest their meat/seafood/cheese/dairy containing items are also delicious.)

There were 6 of us. Two entrees were made incorrectly. We were charged for the incorrect entrees and then again for the correct entrees. They took the two incorrect ones off our bill after we pointed it out to them. Not sure how that happened. Make sure you check your bill!!!
