Hard to fault the Flagstaff House Restaurant - great location overlooking Boulder, fabulous food and unobtrusive attentive service. It was intended to be a farewell thank you for my friends who really appreciate fine dining, and the meal more than lived up to its expectations. I last went to the Flagstaff House some 15 years ago and standards have certainly... More

If you are looking for a romantic setting this is it--An upscale dining experience halfway up the mountain overlooking the Boulder Valley. It is a special place that allows for leisurely dining by not turning the tables over quickly. The wine list is extensive if not pricey, but a pet peeve of ours is that it arrives via eTablet. We...

The Flagstaff House has a five star location on the side of Flagstaff Mountain overlooking the city of Boulder, Colorado and has been a premier choice for gourmands for, well, as long as I can remember, and I've lived here for 62 years. I have dined there a number of times and I will say right up front that it... More

My husband always wanted to go to Flagstaff House, so on a recent trip to visit family we made the splurge. He had made reservations months before we actually went. We celebrated our anniversary with this dinner, and it did not disappoint! We both ordered appetizers and an entree while splitting a dessert. Presentation and attention were both outstanding and...

We had been to the Flagstaff House years ago when we lived in the Boulder area, and thought it would be a great place to celebrate an anniversary. We were right. It was an absolutely wonderful place to celebrate an anniversary. Everything about this culinary institution is exemplary, from the beautiful setting to the service to the food and wine.... More

No doubt about it, the view and ambience is awesome. But service during a Thursday visit this week just for drinks was a real spoiler. It took 20 minutes for two drinks and a cheese plate to arrive. Our server was quite knowledgeable, but the wait for just cocktails was unacceptable, especially considering there were lots of empty tables. Consider... More

Certainly the view and ambiance of the dining room is top notch. Somm was awesome... Very knowledgable, helpful AND friendly. Remainder of service was good but not more than that . I had the duck which was very good, not excellent. My wife had the lamb which while very good certainly wasn't worth $68. Prices were 2 star Michelin and... More

I've been coming to the Flagstaff House since the '80s. Yes its expensive, but you will not get a better dining experience in Colorado. The view, the wine list and the service was outstanding. Our main courses of Filet Minion, Halibut and Duck were exemplary. The only negative was the over use of fennel in some of the side dishes.... More

10 of us were here for dinner yesterday. We picked the place because of the view and the generally good reviews. Often, a restaurant with a great view can portend not so great food, but that was not the case here. Do not come if you want a hurried meal, as they pride themselves on not rushing their patrons. They... More

A blue sky Boulder late afternoon. An open air deck overlooking all of Boulder. Great setting that makes you feel like the pricey appetizers and cocktails are worth it. Romantic
