Simply AWESOME!

The title says it all! It was AWESOME! And this is coming from 2 culinary school graduates (one of which is a chef/restaurant owner in Washington, DC). Fantastic service (we even had a drink with our server once he got off work) and he suggested a fun bar for us to go to afterward, as it was our... read more

The Kitchen has several restaurants associated with it: The Kitchen (there are 4 locations), Next Door (3 locations) & Upstairs – each just a bit different. I enjoyed The Kitchen Upstairs which is more of a cocktail lounge serving amazing food from "downstairs". I went for "Community Hour" which goes until 18:30 every day – it takes $1-$1.50 off selected... More

While the Kitchen is expanding around the country I have found their food to be pretty much just average American food. Living around Foodie Boulder with some of the best restaurants you can dream of we are blessed with great food. I found the Kitchen's menu to be boring and only a couple dishes were of interest to us.

I went to The Kitchen because I had received a gift certificate from a client, expecting it to be just another organic farm-to-table restaurant. Boy was I wrong!. The food was fabulous. I had the Wisdom Farm Chicken. ($25). The sauce itself was worth the price. There were four of us. We spent $250 with tip. There are some very... More

Good Food but over priced and loud atmosphere. The food is great but too pricey for what you get. It is very noisy and I am not one for a community table in a restaurant that charges this much for entrees

Shame on The kitchen for trying to sue NextDoor in Loveland over a name. I will make sure to never patronize this establishment. The owner is obviously not a good person! For anyone wanting great food and atmosphere feel free to head on up to Next Door on 4th St in Loveland. It's worth the trip!

This restaurant is a gem. The menu is small but leaves nothing to be desired. It's broad, and address the most discriminating pallet. To compliment the menu is a pretty nice wine and cocktail selection. Nothing is left on the table... Simple, fresh, and delicious. Don't miss this place when visiting Boulder

I love the atmosphere at The Kitchen. It is warm and comfortable. The service is top notch too. The menu is local and very creative. We enjoyed our food, but I must say it was a little pricey when all was said and done. we spent over $ 200.00 for the 3 of us ( one teenager) and while it... More

Some restaurants just care about what they do. The fact that the people running this restaurant are passionate about food is clear. Everything was great, I highly recommend the portobello sandwich!

My local free chicken was roasted to perfection nestled elegantly beside the freshly steamed rapini. A side of roasted Brussel sprouts and charqouterie platter was all that was needed to send this girl to gourmand heaven. Eat here when in Boulder!
