We went here for lunch in early July and had a delightful meal. Our group had the curried chicken salad and the roasted portobello sandwich. Everyone loved their meals. The waitstaff was attentive and the atmosphere was relaxing. The place has a simple chic elegance, but it is not at all pretentious. Highly recommended!

Excellent service! Meal was local and fresh. It was pricey but we took 2 hours to enjoy our four course meal. Go on Monday at 7 for the community meal if you're social. Reservations a must.

Treat yourself well & eat at the Kitchen every chance you get while in Boulder! We do. Have had brunch, lunch, dinner, late nite snacks. Everything is carefully sourced & prepared. Most organic from local farms. The prep is superb, as is the service. We love it & always try to take a student from UC here so they can... More

We went on a Sunday and the only menu available was the brunch menu. No problem there.....still lots of great choices to choose from! The waiter gave excellent drink recommendations and the brunch menu had lots of choices also. I had the curry chicken salad and it was wonderful; very fresh and flavorful.

I have decided that the Kitchen is my "go to" restaurant in Boulder when I know I need to have consistency. The food is always well presented, with tasty combinations. The bread is outstanding and the carrot soup is the best I've ever had and I am comparing it to the international and domestic restaurants I've eaten at around the... More

Ate here last October and again with my entire family this July. The Kitchen has the best breakfast and lunch you can find anywhere. As a seasoned world traveler, I highly recommend The Kitchen !!!

The restaurant is beautiful, the staff friendly and the food amazing. Only thing not to like is that it's a bit pricey, but for what you are getting, don't think you could expect to really pay less. Worth a splurge for sure!

Interesting menu with some very unique drinks. Not a tapas restaurant but myself and friends shared a few plates. The asparagus was amazing as well as the hummus. The gnocchi was an interesting dish, not your usual gnocchi. Shanti was our server and she was excellent, definitely an A+.

First time at The Restaurant. Had the zucchini summer salad-- awesome! Cold sliced zucchini garnished with bits of ricotta cheese, crushed whole almonds and fresh mint leaves sliced thin. Flavor was exquisite!

This place hits the high mark on every aspect you could measure: variety offered and quality of the food delivered, attentiveness and knowledge of the whole staff from hostess to busboy, ambiance, and even the rest rooms. Four of us enjoyed a varied lunch: tomato soup, pea sprout bruschetta, roast beef sandwich with horseradish, spicy salad ...We asked for recipe... More
