Ranks with the best--anywhere. Fine dining in every way--food, wine and service. Add to that the setting: in the mountains overlooking the Boulder valley. In the warm weather, the patio is a dream. Obviously expensive, but worth every dollar. Not to be missed.

We had our 20th anniversary dinner at Flagstaff House and enjoyed the experience immensely, when we lived in the Boulder area. We have retired to Arizona, but wanted to recapture the wonderful experience so we arranged to return and have our 30th anniversary dinner at Flagstaff House. It was everything we remembered and hoped it would be. The restaurant is... More

We only visited the bar so I can't review the food but the bar prices were very high. On average maybe $15 for the least expensive glass of wine. Mixed drinks were a bit cheaper..and good but not worth the prices. The view from the restaurant might make it worth the trip but be aware that the decor is VERY... More

Very expensive ... good not great but very expensive! You're paying for the view and the restaurant notoriety. Example .. for me, $6.25 for a hot tea is a bit much. A copy of my bill is shown in the photos. Everything is a la carte. Beautiful view and excellent service but just overpriced for what you get. Doubt that... More

I had high hopes for Flagstaff House taking my wife for her birthday. It was so exciting driving up the mountain to get to the restaurant. It was an adventure. The view from the restaurant was breath taking and had one of the best views I ever experienced in a restaurant. Unfortunately, the food wasn't good. The hostess was very... More

My husband and I got married at the Flagstaff House and have returned every year for our anniversary. We just celebrated our 10th anniversary at the restaurant and our experience was subpar for the Flagstaff House. Everyone was nice, but the service was lacking. The service is normally spot on and attentive without being overbearing. This last experience we felt... More

I proposed to my wife here, we returned ten years later to celebrate the anniversary of that event and this week we took both our families to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary here. Every time it has been an incredible overall experience from the deer outside and the view of the city and front range, to the service and the... More

Drive up Flagstaff Rd just past the overlook to arrive at this restaurant. There are several different places to sit, including a lovely terrace during the warmer months. The view over Boulder and the Front Range is impressive. The food is top-notch, including the many extras--amuse-bouches before the meal, palate cleansing cucumber sorbet the night we went, and a wonderful... More

We visit this restaurant each year either to celebrate one of our birthdays or our anniversary. The view is outstanding - nestled high above Boulder, a window table allows you to view the mountain range and sunset (during the late Spring and Summer). The food is absolutely delicious and the choices accommodate everyone. Wine list changes and grows with each... More

The service was excellent and synchronized which was very nice. Question soft shell crab and morels on a menu in late July at such a restaurant. Entree prices are exorbitant but the surprise courses that appear throughout the meal soften the blow. The wine list is outstanding but one can find offerings that will fit your menu selections that won't... More
