Superb dinner experience, left me glowing and grateful

Simply the best fine dining in Boulder, low profile and with a loyal following. A beautiful room, impeccable service by two gorgeous servers (one of each gender), and food prepared with great subtlety and skill. My main course happened to be a pork saltimbocca, but I think the menu changes greatly... read more

My husband loves French food so I took him to L'Atelier for his birthday. It's a local Boulder restaurant that attracts couples, business groups as well as families. It is perfect for a special occasion: the service is very attentive, the menu is filled with specially prepared French dishes and many of the tables offer a private experience. We started... More

Fabulously French! The wine selection is lovely and the French Onion soup to live for! Love to eat on the outdoor patio. Great service and delightful selection.

I loved the quaint dining room. We had the entire dining room to ourselves and it was great! Cuisine was delicious and the staff very attentive.

if you close your eyes and savor the food you could imagine you are there. The name stands for workshop and that is where you build things. Radec is great at preparing dishes from scratch that satisfy the eye and the taste buds. His presentation includes beautifully and unusually shape plates that add to the experience. But what about the... More

Good food and wine make this an enjoyable stop for locals and visitors alike. Food quality was excellent and all of the courses tasted great. The prices are on the higher end, but not unreasonable. The service was high quality, if a bit on the slow side. The waiter was able to answer our questions and was friendly. Be aware,... More

Always a delight when Radec Cerney is in the house, either cooking or out with dining patrons celebrating summer. Food and wine extraordinaire, elegant welcoming atmosphere and so enjoyable.

We were celebrating my birthday and I had been wanting to eat here for a long time. We had the Tuna tartar, the Asian bouillabaisse, and the Pork Saltimbocca. All was very good. The Hawaian sea salt at the table gave the food an extra punch. I much rathered this dinner and restaurant to the pretentious place accross the street.... More

We started with Escargot with garlic herb butter over a line of mashed potatoes. Very different from what we've had at other restaurants as was everything else we ordered. The presentation of each dish was outstanding. My wife had the Lobster meuniere over risotto and I had Ahi over forbidden black rice with pickled ginger and yellow curry. For dessert... More
