This is one of our favorite places for special celebrations, and we have always found the service attentive, the food delicious, and the ambience just right for a romantic date night (you can actually have a quiet conversation). It is easy to spend $150-$200 for two, with wine, dessert and/or appetizers as well as the entree.

This restaurant is in a beautiful setting, nestled against the foothills, but has easy access off a major road in Boulder County. Friendly staff, accommodating and helpful. Our waitress was excellent, there when you needed her, not there when you were talking, etc. We went to a Sunday Brunch, the Sunday after Valentine's Day. Nice variety of selections, several stations,... More

Had a very unsatisfactory experience on valentines day. Service was very slow, had to send the undercooked beef Wellington back to the kitchen, only to have it returned in the same bloody state. Won't return anytime soon.

I have not been to the Greenbriar in a few years because it is expensive and last time we went we had a bad experience. So we were excited to go again for a friends birthday. We went on Valentines day so we knew it was going to be busy. We got there at 7pm. It took 45 mins to... More

The Steak Wellington and Lobster Tail was well prepared and tasted wonderful. The spinach side dish was over cooked and very salty. The waiter really subtracted from the overall experience. No children's menu was available, but when asked he said they had hamburgers for kids. When we asked to split a meal, he brought it out on one plate with... More

I first went to the Greenbriar in 1970 as a child on a trip with my grandparents, and still find it an special place today. From the excellent service to the outstanding food and wine it has it all. We celebrate New Years here every year and always have an inspiring meal. The service is second to none and the... More

After visiting the Red Lion three years in a row and watching the food and service decline year-over-year, we made a reservation for 8 at the GreenBriar. Started with fresh mussels which were among the best I've tasted and I lived 6 miles from the ocean for most of my life. Each of the appetizers were delicious, timely and a... More

This used to be a fine intimate restaurant. It is now venue for brunch,weddings and parties. Beware of what events are going on if you choose to dine there. Much better fine dining elsewhere in boulder.

The traditional turkey dinner was very good, the service was miserable. The appetizer and entree arrived at the same time and the wine arrived 5 minutes later. They offer second helpings but don't let you take left overs home. I don't understand the logic, instead of making their customers happy, they throw away the food. We ate here two years... More
