We have dined in L'Atleier a few times in the past 2 years in Boulder & usually enjoyed the 'fine dining" experience & food. On this occasion it was without doubt the worst dining experience we have had in Boulder. We ordered champagne with our appetizer, a main & a bottle of wine. We did not see our waiter again... More

In the ever-changing Pearl St eatery landscape, L'Atelier has been a standout for over a decade. Hadn't been here in a few years (limited opportunities for eating out) and decided to enjoy it again this month. We had an attentive server, who upon noticing that our table seemed a bit cramped moved us to a more spacious location. All of... More

This is always one of our go to restaurants if we want to impress someone. It is an intimate quieter restaurant. The owners have an incredible wine selection. The food is always outstanding.

Made a reservation and asked for a table, not a booth. Twice the restaurant called, before we arrived, to change the time of our reservation because they said they would only have a table available at a certain time. We arrived at the restaurant's chosen time, and a curt and unwelcoming hostess led us directly to a booth, with neither... More

L'atelier is definitely at the top of my list when I'm in Boulder. As others have said, it isn't one of the trendy places in Boulder, which is blessed with many excellent restaurants. It is, however, one of the best meals - shall we say events? - in town, which is a statement not lightly made. The experience is modern,... More

Tucked away a few blocks east of the Pearl St. Mall, this restuarant doesn't offer the 'buzz' and loud trendy scene of many Boulder restaurants. Instead, depend on a quiet atmosphere, great service, an informed wine list and incredible food. Servers were helpful and attentive without hovering or snobby, and each dish was creative yet classic, with great taste. Desserts... More

Elegant setting. Extensive menu--primarily French. Extensive wine list. Service was correct, if a little inattentive. The food was absolute perfection.

My wife and I are Francophiles which helps our appreciation of this restaurant. It is not hard core French cuisine, but it does have a French flair. The food at this restaurant is consistently good - for fine dining.

Truly outstanding French food with a twist. Service was prompt and efficient ant the owner was present and very engaged. Mussels app was superb. Entrees though not huge by American standards were very appropriate and delicious. Lobster ravioli was sublime. Great drinks, lovely wine list and a true European flair. It is small and tables are very close together, again... More
