Our waitress Maggie, was fantastic. She was pleasant, helpful and knew the menu ingredients. We had Jamaican jerk tempeh, and the smoked beet pasta with roasted fennel. Both were incredible.

Leaf is a fantastic veggie restaurant - a must visit for any vegetarian visiting Boulder. If you are a meat eater try it out to find out what you are missing. Excellent in all aspects: food, serve, ambience.

We stopped in on a Monday late afternoon and found out that it was Happy Hour at Leaf. They offered a variety of small plates and we ordered two different salads, an avocado tartar, and buffalo cauliflower bites. Everything we ordered was excellent and the prices were around $5-$6 per plate. The ambiance is lovely with a beautiful copper waterfall... More

This was the second time I've eaten at leaf and as before it was delicious. The menu is exciting and inventive and has a lot of options should you be a vegetarian or vegan. Additionally the wine list is interesting, and I dug the fact many of the wines were by organic or biodynamic producers. That's a good thing as... More

Extremely well prepared, tasty dishes were had by all for a late lunch in this very pleasant restaurant. I am an omnivorous eater who enjoys most types of food. The portabello sandwich was rich, moist and delicious. The Brie sandwich matched it for presentation and flavor. A variety of salads are popular here too. The decor is lovely and serene;... More

My husband and I decided to try Leaf after a day of hiking. We were both very hungry and I was concerned I wouldn't be full with just eating vegetables but since I have stopped eating dairy and my husband doesn't eat meat or poultry I thought that this would satisfy both or dietary requirements. We arrived at 6 and... More

The service and decor are excellent at Leaf Vegetarian. If you eat a plant based diet, it doesn't get any better than Leaf. We ate on the outdoor patio and the day was beautiful. The food is creative and there is a large variety to choose from on the menu. Leaf is our favorite restaurant in Boulder!
