We went there for our anniversary. The building is old but very well taken care of. The wood gleams and shines, the grounds are lovely. The wait staff was friendly, they all wished us a happy anniversary. The wine list was a book, it was so extensive! The prices ranged from the $30 on up. The food was beautifully presented... More

Our family group had a wonderful experience here during summer restaurant week and had great food, excellent service and wonderful old country club atmosphere. The drive to this place north of Boulder is so beautiful. The wedge salad was extra good this time and the steak nicely prepared. Loved the gluten free flourless chocolate cake for dessert. My other group... More

When we went to dinner here recently the restaurant was almost empty... this should have been a clue. It was the food that was the most disappointing. The "amuse-bouche" to start the meal was a raspberry sorbet with basil - the basil was so strong that I couldn't eat it. Next was a salad with raspberry dressing and " goat... More

I used to go to the Greenbriar in the 1980s when I lived in Colorado, I went this August and joined my brother and sister-in-law for a great evening in the newly (well for me) refurbished bar. The restaurant has undergone quite a bit of work, owing to the Boulder Fire and then a Flood (not to mention the Audi!).... More

On the evening of June 12, 2014, I had one of the best and most memorable restaurant meals that I've had for a long time. A short drive (8 miles) from downtown Boulder, the setting is serene/pastoral, the grounds are lovely, and the interior of the restaurant is elegant without being pretentious. The service/staff was gracious and good natured, not... More

We were looking for a last minute reservation for a group of ten. Since it was Fathers Day, almost everything decent in the Boulder/Longmont area was fully booked. We researched available restaurants on "Open Table". The Greenbriar Inn came up. It has mostly good TripAdvisor reviews and though we have passed by it many times, we never tried it. This... More

The Greenbriar has been around for as long as I can remember. It was a mainstay in the days when pretty much all Boulder fine dining was in "inns", usually run by European descendants, dotting the countryside around the city. I suspect this was in some part due to the fact that Boulder itself was dry until some time in... More

For the last two years I have gone to the Greenbriar for my birthday dinner. My Birthday is in February. Both trips there I got the same table which I did not request. Year one it was snowing outside and we were at a window table, very nice setting. Year two the restaurant was slow and we had the place... More

We attended the wedding of our nephew there and they did a really nice job. It was a small outdoor wedding, followed by brunch. The menu was extensive. Several main dishes: prime rib, ham, pork loin, and cooked to order omelets as well as a number of side dishes that complemented each main dish. Then they provided a lovely (although... More
