Stopped by this place after hearing great things about it in recent media.

Euclid Hall is located in a beautiful old building in LoDo. The chef actually has three restaurants in the area but this is the newest and probably the most approachable.

You walk in and up a flight of stairs to the hostess' table. Tables are 270 degrees around you but the kitchen and bar are right in front. In fact, you can sit facing the open kitchen and watch them work.

The surroundings are industrial-chic with lots of exposed brick, pipe, ducting, and wire. Even the light bulbs (possibly the coolest bulbs I've ever seen) are exposed. It's all very hip, modern, and urban.

I was greeted at the door, shown to the bar seating area, and again greeted by the bartender. He poured me a glass of water, handed me the food and beer menus, and was, in general, pretty friendly.

The beer menu is really pretty impressive. They have twelve micros on tap (no macros in sight) and a long list of carefully selected bottles and cans. Everything from pilsners to imperial stouts, Belgian trappists to American crafts.

I asked the bartender if a certain beer was good and he offered a sample, which I appreciate. I also asked for suggestions off the food menu and he made several with insightful information.

I took his first suggestion and ordered the Euclidean cheesesteak. I figured if they named it after the restaurant, it must be good. Unlike any cheesesteak I've ever seen, it was a soft but crusty bun filled with melted Jarslberg cheese with slices of divine medium-rare steak served on top. The whole thing was on a bed of pickled peppers and onions. Delicious but one of those small-and-pretty types of dishes.

Dessert was amazing - an icecream sandwich with two sourdough waffles surrounding a salted carmel icecream with pralines. So good!

So everything was great but I do have one complaint. Actually two...

The beers were extremely over-priced. Double the shelf price plus another few bucks. For example, La Folie, which I could buy down the street for $17, was about $36 and Woodcut, which is about $25 at the store was a whopping $59. It would be hard to believe that they move much at those prices.

The second complaint comes from being a server in years past. With both dishes I ordered, the bartender never bothered to check in or ask how I was enjoying it. Now I realize he was busy but this is such a basic fundamental part of serving. Take 5 seconds to ask "is everything ok" and give me the chance to ask for a side of fries or an extra napkin. Basic but necessary.

Overall a tasty place for a special lunch and beer.

I stopped in with some friends while visiting Denver. Nice atmosphere, solid tap list, excellent food and very good service. I highly recommend the poutine. The serving size is on the small side and it's not cheap but it's fantastic!
