I have been waiting impatiently since my daughter moved to Boulder in May to experience Leaf. This was her first restaurant experience and it left quite an impression. Since her first visit she has had some unhappy experiences with service, though the food has always been wonderful. Last night both food and service topped the charts. This is a restaurant... More

Whilst the west of the USA is a remarkable place it can be a bit of a struggle for vegetarians so Leaf comes as a welcome break from toasted cheese sandwiches! It is a smart restaurant which combines interesting flavours to produce tasty and sophisticated food. The service is excellent and their is a friendly vibe. The outside tables offer... More

Yes,,,,,,this is a meat eater speaking here.....and I must say this Resturaunt is outstanding!  Chef Racheal is doing really cool things with flavours and vegetarian cuisine.  I would suggest this dinning experience for the meat eater or vegetarian alike.  Wow......very very good.  Cheers to the chef and the owners.  We will be back, soon.

On a recent 6 day trip to the Boulder/Denver area, my wife and I enjoyed Leaf so much, we ate three of our meals there. The food was delicious, inventive, and fairly priced. Vegetarians and vegans will be delighted at the menu and even meat-eaters will enjoy themselves. None of the food is too "strange" for anyone leery of trying... More

I'm most certainly an omnivore. I like meat. I like vegetables. What I don't like are dishes that other than merely fulfilling some need to be vegetarian, aren't particularly enticing -- a plate of random vegetables, a dish in which the meat has clearly been removed, a dish with a "fake" meat element (faux foie for instance). I do like... More

This is one of the best vegetarian restaurants I have visited. My wife and I visited during their happy hour to sample some of their small bites. The restaurant was intimate with outdoor seating and a small bar inside. We chose three items from the small plates menu: Sweet Pea Gnocchi, Crispy Harissa Tofu, and the "Crab" Cake Slider. Each...

A great meal was had by all. Probably the most interesting, appealing vegetarian options I've ever seen.

This place was BOMB. I'm not a vegetarian but my girlfriend is so I thought this would be a good spot to take her for her birthday and sure enough she loved it and so did I. It was really tough to figure out what to order because pretty much every single item on the menu looked delicious. Our server... More

The food was incredible with a lot of detail in all of the different components and flavors that go into each dish. Too bad the service was not up to the same standards but it did not not ruin the experience. Place was almost empty and received perfunctory service.
