Great service, great menu selections, farm to table fresh. When we come to Boulder, we try to put it on our list.

I ordered the lamb burger with sauteed greens instead of fries. Great choice. The burger was moist and tasty.

Slow service, removed wine glasses as soon as we sat down demotivating us from ordering wine, bruschetta was served on soft sliced bread (I would not eat anywhere) not even toasted ; bathroom was filthy. Service paid a lot more attention to large groups. Would not return

The atmosphere is great, urban yet warm. The food is excellent. We had the bolognese ( very small portion) but very good. The salads had wonderful flavor and beautiful presentation. The gnudi pasta melted in your mouth. The roasted chicken was excellent too. Our only problem is it took 1 hour and 20 minutes for our food to come out.... More

We had dinner here with family. Everyone was pleased with their meal. We liked it so much, we went back and bought a gift card as our kids Christmas gift.

After getting over the fact that parking in Boulder is a hassle (I've had an easier time in downtown Denver), I found The Kitchen to be a great place to unwind. The interior was well decorated and well organized. Many restaurants look chaotic, but The Kitchen was very easy on the eyes. Granted the constant reminders of their support of... More

We stopped in at their bar to have a cocktail before our dinner reservations at a local competitor, since we had been unable to reserve a table at The Kitchen. The bartender told us they could accommodate us at the bar for dinner, so we cancelled our reservation. Great decision! Awesome food, an outstanding Brunello, and we just love the... More

I had both lunch and dinner here during my 3 day stay in Boulder. The lunch was so good that I had to come back for dinner and bring along 7 other people. And while they were not able to accomidate us all at the same table the staff was welcoming and found seating for all.

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
