Bolognese is outstanding

This was our third time dining at The Kitchen. The food has been outstanding each time. The staff is knowledgable and provide solid recommendations. Bolognese has so many variations it's tough to agree on great ones. This is a great one and worth the trip just to try. In Addition to the... read more

Visited The Kitchen for the second time last Sunday. There were three of us. When we walked in the music was blasting and the tables were full. I am hard of hearing and asked if the music could be lowered or off. They said yes but it took three requests, including one to the manager, before it was dampened. But... More

Did not choose the Kitchen in advance. We were visiting Boulder and when hunger struck, the Kitchen was open and had tables - that's how informed our decision was! And what a great decision it was. Had the Cuban Sandwich - the meats were very flavorful - along with a draft beer and loved the flavor combo. The sandwich was... More

Had a reservation for graduation dinner for 15 people. The service staff was attentive, very helpful with meal selections, and quite friendly. The food was very good, but if you like larger portions, this is not the place. The appetizers were spectacular. The place is a bit loud, so if you have a hard time hearing, this place will be...

I've been eating at The Kitchen since they first opened, and I have found that what they do, they do extremely well. The menu if fairly consistent, with seasonal variations, but regardless of what you order, when you go to The Kitchen, you can expect a 5 star meal, service experience, wine selection, and ambiance. I love sitting at the... More

When they hosted the fixed Price Menu they showed off their superior culinary skills. The tastes of the food was truly gourmet. We sat a bench seats and ate family style, it was strange but it actually worked. The tastes were new and each of the many small dishes took each of us to a new place. Atmosphere is Boulder... More

I visited The Kitchen with work colleagues while visiting Boulder. Our dining experience was outstanding. The atmosphere is active yet comfortable. The service was excellent. Our server was very helpful with our selections, including wine pairings. The food was organic and locally sourced. I had the lamb, which I found to be perfect in every way. I would recommend The...

The ingredients are always fresh and both the lunch and dinner menus have interesting choices. The lemon ricotta thin pancakes --yum!!! The portobello mushroom sand which was so tasty and... More
