I've actually been in here several times since they opened, during busy times and slow .. so I think I've got a pretty good idea of how things are going. The place is beautiful - very nice space with a bar both upstairs and down, really took advantage of the building. The kitchen is open with a bar in front of it if you want to sit and watch them work. The food is also great - nice modern take but it still feels homey .. they are also doing a great job of using local and seasonal ingredients. The scallops with Palisade peaches is fantastic - sad that season is coming to an end, but excited to see what they do for winter offerings. Beer selection is good, and they've done a good job pairing beer with food.
Now .. the downside. The service has ranged from indifferent to aggressively bad. It is obvious that when they first opened they were way over-staffed .. instead of leading to too much service, this meant no one stepped up to claim a table. Several times we've had to flag people down. I would expect this to get better as they settle in .. if it does I'll definitely update my review accordingly. We did have an experience one night with a waitress who actually argued with us about what we had ordered. The manager was standing very close to the table and didn't chose to say anything. Even if the waitress was right .. why would you argue about it?!
The food, beer, and atmosphere are all great .. I just hope they can sort out the service. I suspect they will since the owner has been successful in so many other Denver locations.

Visited 6/22/2013, 6:30 - 9:00pm
A brewer friend recommended this bar and restaurant, so my wife and I visited for our second dinner in Denver. A short cab ride from our hotel dropped us at the corner of Larimer & 14th; Euclid is just a half block away. A couple of umbrella-shaded tables front the sidewalk, but the day was pretty warm so we headed inside the historic building (circa 1883 formerly a private residence, social hall, brothel(?)). The interior is spacious/high-ceilinged, dark, contemporary in its mood-lighting and industrial decor. Exposed wooden floors and century-old brick walls surround the lower and upper rooms; we were seated upstairs in the far corner (quieter there), diagonally opposite the switchback stair. My wife had the 'room view' and I got to gaze contentedly toward her, glancing only occasionally out an adjacent window, across trees and rising developments towards the Rocky Mountain range and setting sun. Music was a mix of Spoon, Mumford & Sons, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend, Radiohead... 'classic rock' later, all the type of stuff we like.
We grabbed menus (tabletop) and were greeted promptly by our friendly server, Kristie, who handed over a beerlist that included a dozen plus taps (some rotating, some regulars), a list of bottles and a final page of a 20-25 'rare' cellared bottles - priced steeply/accordingly. She helped walk us through the menu, made (excellent) starter/dinner recommendations and (important to the beer lover) knew the beer taplist and bottle list very well. Loved her personality, her helpfulness/attentiveness...and willingness to share both a favorite recipe from the menu (roasted cauliflower) and humorous nickname (shall remain a secret). If I could give a score higher than 5, I would.
The nickname came up because we ordered a Great Divide beer called Big Fluffy Meow Meow (seriously) - which was good but not what either of us had in mind. I opted for Odell Lupulin IPA instead and S chose the Avery White Rascal (later she chose a Steamworks Kolsch). After dinner we had samples of the Denver Brewing Graham Cracker Porter (rum barrel version) and some generous pours of a Left Hand Milk Stout/Leopold Cherry liqueur combo (yum).
Food here was terrific! Our starters included the nutty/crunchy roasted cauliflower salad with goat cheese and pepper marmalade and the pickled green beans and hop-infused cukes. We also added the bruleed beef marrow bones, massive and savory, and a side of Kennebec Fries with delicious bacon aioli. My favorites, however were the house-made sausage and mustards - if you're sharing, get all four of them - Leberkäse, Boudin Noir, Beef Short Rib Kielbasa and a 'butcher's choice', the Pork Belly with Chinese 5 Spice. Difficult to choose a favorite, so I'll just say I loved them all (the Currywurst add-on was a good call, too).
Our tab was a pretty reasonable $60. Pints were $5.25 (although many of the aged beers in bottles had much higher price tags). Daily Happy Hour...er, 'Study Hall', could have saved us a few dollars on beers. Oh well...
Overall, a great experience for food, beer and service. Would happily go back - in fact, I'll say Euclid Hall is a 'must-visit' the next time we're in Denver. Cheers!

Really cool space in downtown Denver. Easy to find and easy to find a place to sit. The food is pretty upscale eclectic. Try the pad thai pig ears! Can get loud. Worth a visit, though due to all the great locals that are carried, including several sours.

A very good restaurant with the growing movement towards local foods and brews. The food was fabulously sourced and prepared. The beer selection was very good, featuring several local and regional headliners.
The emphasis for local and sustainable with both the foods and the brews can not be overstated.
