Came here for their lunch special - a limited menu for 5.99, plus 1/2 price drafts, which is a good thing, since a glass of beer will run you about 8 bucks here is you pay full price - this, of course, is not unusual for belgian draft beer, though - the draft beer is almost 100% belgian - you are not going to geek out here, though; there is nothing rare, but they will have a belgian to fit your mood and/or meal - flemish reds, saisons, quads - most styles are represented - sure, there is nothing you canít walk down to Argonaut and buy, but it is nice to see them all on tap - the food was sub-par, and took quite a while to get to us, despite how slow they were - of course, I wasnít expecting much for 5.99 (Iíll probably come back to try dinner) - the environment was inviting, warm, and comfortable - it has itís flaws, but itís a nice place.

This was my first time in. Our Server was great, she just had way too many tables. We went on a Thursday night and it wasnít all that busy. I had the Croques Monsieur, which was a fancy Ham and cheese sandwich, but it was awesome. I wanted the Rochefort 8, but they didnít have it in stock, I did have St. Bernardus, Delirium Tremons, Maredsous 8 and the Dekonink Amber. Worth going to check it out.

Belgian beerbar on Colfdax av. near the center of Denver. Inside is rather dark with brick walls, heavy brown tables and chairs, but still feels a little "cafelike". Good tap selection with mostly belgians + 1 or 2 Lost Abbey. Food is good, had moules frittes one time and on the other visit was a fresh ouster / Rogue Beer event, ousters was better then the beers. Rather slow service, but on the other hand the places was packed. Rather expensive compared to other places downtown Denver

Meh, the tap selection here is Belgian (surprise) and quite thoughtful, though nothing was particularly out of the ordinary. There were a handful of local Belgian-inspired beers available, and the bottle list included a few more. I was here for one beer and left, so I cannot comment on the food.

Solid, though i find it a little cookie cutter, non personalized and expensive.

Been here twice (and had food both times, and one time shared two dishes), not impressed either time. The food is fairly poor, as you might get in an Applebeeís or something like that...I donít plan on eating here again. The beer list isnít bad but they have a weird focus on kegs vs. bottled beer (weird because Belgian beers are often more complex and enjoyable from bottle due to bottle conditioning...kegged samples Iíve had are usually more sterile and simple). The list is not very large for either, though, and there really arenít many gems on it (mostly common stuff from the bigger breweries...donít expect to find Drie Fonteinen here, for example). Itís a nice concept, but the execution here is lacking, almost as if the person behind it isnít really that serious of a Belgian beer nerd.

Nice selection of Belgiums on tap. The bottle selection was small. The decor was modern and a little cheap I felt. the booths in the bar area are mobile so you feel every movement the people in the booth behind you make. The bar was full but besides that the place was empty on a Saturday early evening. Nice place to have a beer and chat but it lacked character and ambiance.

Visited for dinner on a recent trip to GABF 2009. The place was packed when we arrived at 600pm that evening, but yet we were still seated pretty quickly. My wife was excited about many of the Belgian beers on the menu, but they were out of everything that she wanted to try. After settling on some "second choice" beers, we ordered our appetizers and food and proceeded to wait an excessively long time (nearly an hour) before being served --with no explanations or comments offered by the server or the manager. Overall experience was mediocre at best during GABF, but that may have just been because of the influx of folks for the festival. We will give a second try on our next trip to Denver.

Decent, but limited Belgian selection. At least on tap (and I do admit that I was there after a LONG day of drinking and was close o falling into my beer).

Sat on the patio and watched a prostitution arrest go down on Colfax. Good food and excellent selection of beers and glassware. I bought a tulip from theme server and as I walked out through the restaurant, the bartender yelled "did you pay for that?" I spoke to the manager and he facepalmed, but didnít really do anything about it. Too many good places out there to put up with this.
