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

Went on Friday evening with the family for an early Easter dinner. 3rd time visiting and I am continually overjoyed by the service and the food. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Food is exquisite, great drinks, and a great ambience. Love the setting tucked right into the Boulder mountain range. We'll be back again.

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.
