This was a fantastic experience in every way! The food was excellent and the servers were friendly and attentive. The Greebriar is a lovely setting for that special occasion. The outdoor patio is romantic and magical. This is an old favorite in Boulder and it has maintained a standard of excellence over the years. I was delighted to come back... More

We have enjoyed the Greenbriar Inn since the late 1970's. In recent years we have only been going for the Sunday brunch, and it has never disappointed. It is the height of luxury (decadence?) to sit on the back patio or on the front lawn on a warm, sunny day, sipping champagne and making trips back inside for "just one... More

Awesome food and even better atmosphere. Service is always outstanding. We take a lot of customers here and have private parties. It's like a winter wonderland when it snows.

It's such a shame when a fantastic dining experience is marred with sub-par wait staff. At dinner this weekend, the food was literally amazingly good, on every level. Superb flavor, texture and visual appeal. The staff, however, seemed to have no pride or passion in their work. Or else they were all very tired from a company party the night... More

My family has been twice to the Greenbriar recently- this past Thanksgiving and again for Mother's Day. The Greenbriar has a charming old-world style, white linen tablecloths and beautiful table settings. The menu is tempting, and many items were delicious, some missing the mark. The servers are young and try hard, but in the end the $$$$ bill does not... More

We have been going to this restaurant for over fifty years for special occasions. Many members of our family went last Sunday for Mother's Day. We were very disappointed. The staff was great but all of the hot food items were less than lukewarm. It is much too expensive to have food that is not up to standards. Cold eggs... More

Our daughter was married at the Greenbriar Inn last week. Phil (the owner) and Kathie-Jo were so helpful through the entire process. They are very experienced with weddings and it showed. They are able to adapt to finicky Spring weather to offer outdoor/indoor ceremonies. The staff was very professional and attentive. The wedding ceremony was flawless and the transition to... More

Went yesterday for their Sunday brunch with the family. Was seated as soon as we got there. I'm 1005 positive you need a reservation as we did, at least on Sunday. Very nice ambiance. Even though a buffet type arrangement for the brunch, service was really attentive and kept our glasses full and used plates off the table. Great and... More
