This is a restaurant that understands what a quality dining experience is all about. From the views halfway up the mountain to the desserts, and everything in between, everything is perfect. I couldn't find anything negative to say if I tried.

Have visited here 3 times in last 5 years. Had a similar experience each time, great service but food was not a "WOW!" Last trip, last week was great. Service was impeccable. Accommodated all needs of our group and Sommelier recommended a fantastic wine. The food was pretty good. My wife and I both commented that our main courses were... More

We were in town visiting and looked for a restaurant with a view. Flagstaff does not disappoint! Perched on the side of Flagstaff Mountain, the panoramic view of Boulder Valley is outstanding and pictures just don't do it justice. The restaurant is more upscale than I typically look for when dining out. We stopped on a Wednesday night without reservations... More

The views are spectacular! The food is delicious! The wine selection is huge! So glad we had the opportunity to experience the Flagstaff House on this visit to Boulder.When making our reservations, we were asked if there were any dietary restrictions, there are and so it was noted. After we arrived, we were treated to many different "amusements" that the... More

The restaurant itself was beautiful. The wine list was also very impressive. The food however, needed some help. I felt like the chef tried too hard to be contemporary and something got lost in the translation. The portions were small and the price tag very high.My salmon lacked flavor and the BLT salad was simply put-2 small slabs of pork... More

We have not dined at such a restaurant in many years. It is truly elegant and a kickback to the fancy big city restaurants of the 60 and 70's. Food was marvelous with many tasting courses between your salad and main.....an appetizer, palate cleanser, and a duck in puff pastry.our group ordered filets, wild salmon and trout.....all 6 of us...

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...
