After reading some not so great reviews about this place, I was a little hesitant to check it out. However, I gotta say this place is awesome!

I went here for my birthday with my wife and my parents. Our waitress was great. Very knowledgable about Belgian beers and even gave my father the story behind the Kwak glass when he ordered one. She asked my wife and I lots of questions when she learned that we spent a week in Belgium last year. She really seemed to enjoy her job and made our visit very enjoyable.

We had dinner, which was reasonably priced, large portions and tasted delicious. I got cheese croquettes as an appetizer and mussels in bacon and blue cheese for my entree.

For beers, I had a Koningshoeven Quad, Urthel Hop-It and Triple Karmeliet. All came in appropriate glassware, which was pretty impressive. They have about 15 beers on tap and just as many in bottles.

Great service, great food and great beers. We all really enjoyed ourselves. My only recommendation would be to do some more decorating inside. The walls are a little bland. I think this would really enhance the atmosphere. They've only been open a couple of months, so maybe it's in the works.

Ok so I finally checked this place out and left very unimpressed. To start off they had Pliny the Elder listed at $8 which I thought was a little expensive until they brought it in a 25cl glass, super expensive seeing as how Falling Rock has pints for $7. If they are selling short pours it should be noted on the menu. We were also seated in a side room that has terrible ambience. The service was good but the good was mediocre. I ordered mussels ($13) and not only were there not very many but they were way to salty. There is a French restaurant her (le central) that not only has much better mussels but they are only $10 and you get a huge bucket. Between the overpriced beer and mediocre food I won't be back and is advise others to avoid unless you really need Belgian beer. They did have Cantillon gueuze on the menu for $22 per 375ml.

A place of elegance within one of the harsher areas of town. Beer line up was impressive and tap list superb. I did think though in some instances they were overpriced but that might go with the territory as places downtown seem to run a little more quite often. Server was very knowledgeable about beer. This is definitely worth a stop if you're into Belgians and want a wide range of good craft from one source. I myself though will probably go to other alternatives in town with some many other less expensive choices.

Cheeky Monk on Colfax Avenue, a weird hodgepodge of porno stores, homeless people and hipsters. Parking kind of weird, one of the most uneven parking lots behind the place totally being displaced by tree roots underneath it, and construction going on across the way.

Get inside, and it looks more like the quinetessential English pub decor, tons of polished wood. But then you start to notice the glassware, the Gulden Draak tower, etc. . . and it definitely takes on the vibe of a Belgian place. Overall, nice and impressive, plenty of space beyond the bar area for dining, a few tables in the bar area. A

Good list of beers, heavy on the Belgian stuff, they were out of all the Russian River stuff. Believe I had a Green Flash Linchpin here. Service was good, waitress checked on us the right amount, cheery.

Food smelled good. Had it at the other location, I have no reason to think this place isn't as good. Ultimately I like the Westminster location a little more (having more Avery & Russian River will do that). But this is a worthwhile stop, especially with the awesome 2UP bar down the road and Argonaut around the way. Plus, if you're the type who likes skinny jeans and porno, this neighborhood is for you.
