Impromptu lunch at 3:00. The service was impeccable, polite and respectful from the hostess, server, runner! No problem ensuring lunch didn't have ingredients I'm allergic too - all without any hesitation. I had the Duck Confit over Frisee w/potatoes. Perfectly cooked & seasoned, simple and delicate. I also had the Bright & Bitter drink (non-alcoholic) that was refreshing, tasty and... More

great menu, service, and ambiance…..everything appealed to me. The fabulous soap in the ladies room was a extra bonus!

I've heard people rave about this place. We dropped in on a whim and we were able to sit at the bar to eat (1.5 hour wait otherwise.) Since we'd never been before we did the tasting for $48 each (apparently the whole "table" must order to get this.) We enjoyed a lovely wine and a few shots of tequila... More

One of the best in Boulder! Terrific meal followed by even more awesome desserts. A bit pricey, but it feels worth the money. Locally-sourced, impressively prepared and friendly service

Enjoyed a very nice meal with sidewalk dining on the West End of the Pearl Street Mall. Service was excellent as was the meal. From made on site ricotta cheese to the freshest ingredients from local farms, the quality of the food is amazing. If available try the squash blossom appetizer....mmmm.

We had a great Sunday brunch here - a great selection of healthy, organic, local dishes. Everyone in our group of 7 loved their choices. Service was friendly and fast. It's not a "budget" restaurant but we felt prices were fair for what we got.

We were walk ins for Saturday brunch and the place was less busy that I was expecting based on how popular it seems. The menu was varied and just about everything looked delicious. We opted for the lemon ricotta pancakes and a steak dish - both were fantastic! That being said, our server, while very nice and informative, disappeared for... More

The Kitchen has a reputation as one of the better restaurants in Boulder; our experiences here suggest that it does not live up to said reputation or is coasting now because of it. It positions as being food and decor "farm to table" on trend; however, the food quality and presentation is inconsistent and overall this place is way overpriced... More

#4 if Boulder? After taking my son and daughter for a family reunion dinner to the Kitchen on a busy Sat eve, I believe it. We arrived ~8 and were surprised to be seated right away at a table situated next to the glass facade offering a connection to the Pearl St Mall atmosphere just feet away. We were all... More
