While I've only been to Cheeky once, it was a very nice experience. I took a date and spent way, way too much money. The draught beer selection is very nice, mainly Belgians and they are even served in proper glassware. The bottle list is nice as well, with gems like La Folie. Overall, the beer selection is very good and thoughtfully chosen, but it's nothing like Hop Leaf or anything. There is always room for improvement. I had a full-fledged meal and was really impressed with the quality of the food, but I'm not picky. The service was fairly good for a busy Saturday night. The décor could certainly improve, but that will hopefully happen overtime. Overall, Cheeky is a nice addition to the Denver beer scene.

We went to the Cheeky Monk on Colfax, Denver, Co. for dinner (03/02). The atmosphere was nice, clean restaurant, food was very good. It was not very crowded. About 4-5 tables had guests. The service was absolutely horrible. While our waitress was very sweet, she really needs to be in a different type of career. The table had no salt/pepper, no napkins or utensils prior to ordering. There were 4 in our group. It took forever for the food to come out. When it did, 3 of the 4 people got their food and not all of their order. Soup was missing. When she brought the soup out, she neglected to bring a spoon, so we had to wait again to get hers' or anybody's attention to get one. The fourth person ordered Fish & Chips. Somehow it either didn't get ordered or ? When it did finally come out, no appology, no discount, nothing. Also the salad did not have any dressing on it. So again we had to wait to get that. We did order an appetizer which she brought out with the main course. Even though the food was good, we won't be back and will share our experience with friends.
thanks, (her name is Christina F.)

Stopped by while in Denver because it was the only bar I could track down Pliny on tap. It was empty on a Sunday afternoon. I have to say I was pretty astonished by the price of some of the regular trappist beers, and unimpressed by the tap and bottle selection. The bartender was really friendly though, and it is a bright and pleasant place for a beer. On my way out there was a street brawl on Colfax with about 20 high schoolers (half fighting, half recording on their phones).
