Gourme vegetarian food at a decent price

I really like coming to this restaurant, because like the (almost entire meat-eating) rest of the country, I also like to have some options to choose from. On top of that, a quality chef created the menu that caters to vegetarian needs. If you are tired of a bland, thoughtless, token vegetarian... read more

So nice to have such a varied selection of vegetarian food. The food was incredibly fresh and we were supported in our choice by a thoroughly helpful and knowledgeable waiter who even gave us tips as to how the kale salad had not bitter taste (gently massaging with cider vinegar!). Also sold a good beer! Only disappointment...no room for desert.

This has now become one of our best go to places in Boulder, CO for great vegetarian food. We went for lunch and both had their soup for the day which was curry with lentel and spinach. It was wonderful. We then shared the Zucchini Pad Thai. It was very good. They have a excellant wine selection and lots of... More

When our friends suggested a vegetarian restaurant, I wasn't sure about their choice, being a confirmed omnivore. What I discovered was several delicious, creative selections served by an attentive, but unobtrusive staff. Besides the dishes, we had a large choice of local craft beers and wine, as well as an extensive selection of both black and green teas. The menu... More

After a great experience at Leaf last fall, I was super excited to return. My daughter has learned that if you want consistent good service here, sit at the bar, so that's what we did. We had brunch cocktails that were beyond delicious. I am embarrassed that I forgot the name of the drink but it was one of the... More

My daughter has decided to try going vegan, so our options for places to eat out are considerably reduced. Boulder does make it a bit easier though. We decided to give Leaf a try based on some recommendations from others, and we were very happy. The service was energetic and helpful, the meal was absolutely great. No bland tastes and... More

Came here on my own during a brief extended stay in Boulder after a business trip. Delicious cocktails and extraordinary vegetarian food! I ended up order some small plates/appetizers because I couldn't decide on just one or two dishes. I sat at the bar, and the service was attentive and atmosphere very pleasant and relaxing. I had the parsnip gnocchi... More

I've been here multiple times with other vegetarians and meat eaters alike. I have never seen anyone leave here unsatisfied. The menu changes just enough to keep it fun, and the consistency is generally quite good.

My husband and I went to Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant in Boulder to celebrate a special life event and we wanted to try something different. We are both carnivores, but thought we would give vegetarian a try. Not only were we served excellent meals, but we never "missed the meat". We had appetizers, main course and dessert! And although we both... More

I've eaten here several times and always enjoy. They've got some great and creative appetizers - try the Pimento Cheese Poppers, the Gnochi, and or the seared cauliflower. They've got good soup the changes based on the season/ingredients on hand, for entree's I like the Harissa Tofu or Beet Steak. The owners are wonderful and own several Boulder area restaurants....
