Eatingout (Denver)
1.0  Dined on June 28, 2017

I made a reservation at Squeaky Bean on Open Table for my work colleagues and me for lunch on Wednesday, June 28th. I read that morning in a blog that the restaurant was closing forever that night after dinner. I called and called that morning to confirm that information was correct, but no one answered the phone. My colleagues and I showed up at the Squeaky Bean for the lunch -- because the restaurant had a cancellation policy that would charge me $40 per person if I didn't show up -- but the restaurant had a sign out saying that it was closing early to prepare for that night's last dinner. I am extremely annoyed that the restaurant didn't call or otherwise notify me that it would be closed for lunch.

One of my favorite eateries. We were there for my birthday brunch, and the kitchen surprised us with a dessert of doughnut holes, ice cream, and fresh berries with a raspberry coulis. And one candle, ha. It was delicious, thank you! A thoughtful, lovely gesture, and awesome service as always.

The person cleaning our tables was more informative and helpful than our server. Our server was inattentive. There were 4 of us ready to eat a huge meal. Usually, when you order "shared plates" there should be enough for at least 2-3 people. We ordered about 5 plates to share and it wasn't enough for even one person. It was basically a side dish at 10-15 bucks a pop. Then we ordered an entrée, the lamb, and were completely underwhelmed by the size...once again, the entrée was a few mouthfuls. The server could've offered a tasting menu or told us to order more at least but he didn't. After I spent almost 200 on "dinner" we went to the comedy club and ordered nachos and cheeseburgers. I have eaten at plenty of high-end restaurants and this just isn't worth it. the food bites I did eat were wonderful but sorry, we aren't Rockefeller's.

This is my second time at the Squeaky Bean, and it didn't differ greatly from the first. The service both times was rather slow, but that isn't why I'm giving a low rating. This is more of just an FYI to anyone who plans to eat there. Our appetizers took a very long time to come out, and when they did, one of the appetizers was incorrect. They tried to clear our appetizer plates before we even got the final appetizer we ordered. When we got our dinners the food on 80% of the plates were cold. No one sent it back because everyone was very hungry by this point. The final issue was bringing us the wrong drink, which of course took a long time for them to even notice that we might want another cocktail. Overall the food was very tasty. The main entrees that came out cold were even raved about for flavor. They did take the messed up appetizer off the bill, as well as the messed up cocktail which of course helps soften the blow for a less than optimal experience. I really want to like the Squeaky Bean, but I've found myself never being wow'd and always a little underwhelmed. I might find myself going back, but it will be a while before I forget.

Service wasn't great. The huevos rancheros had undercooked vegetables and just wasn't a great dish. The other dishes were good though. Two plates and a coffee mug had chips in them. Not a deal breaker, but attention to detail for food that isn't cheap would be nice.

All dishes were excellent. Lamb was especially well prepared with tasteful garnishes. Drinks were equally great and paired well with the dishes we ordered.

Our server was great although I cannot remember his name. He truly created an experience for us. He was kind and patient. My husband and I visiting Denver for the first time. He really took his time to explain a lot about the city to us. The food was really good. I had the risotto and my husband had the scallops but the service was the best!

This is my second visit to this restaurant and my latest experience was great as was the first visit. My two friends and I all ordered different meals and shared. All were excellent; braised ribs, rack of lamb & seafood. Service was attentive, and helpful. Portions are small, and rather pricey, but then that is to be expected at nice places in Lodo. Overall, very satisfied with the meal and experience-----I recommend, and will return.

The staff was very helpful with food and drink options. They checked on us several times. The food was wonderfully crafted. We sat outside which was quiet and it was lit up with beautiful lights at night. I had the vegetarian option which was amazing while they person I went with had the scallops. All the food was good. We also had the sorbet which was delicious. I would recommend this to everyone for a quiet date night.

Food and location were good. Server was unpleasant with no personality. For that reason our experience was below average and I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to friends.

Went for our anniversary and as always, a great experience. Somewhat pricey but one taste and you'll realize your money was well spent.
