Three of us ate dinner there last week. Everything was great. They were wonderful about accommodating gluten free and dairy free requests. I would definitely eat here again.

This was one of our best meals during our 4 day Colorado trip. Food and service were really top notch and bartender Steve was pretty much perfect server. Had wild salmon which was cooked just right, my wife had pasta dish which she really enjoyed. The Kitchen is a nice upscale spot on busy Pearl.

My husband and I stopped here on our drive from the Red Rocks area to the Rocky Mountain National Park. The restaurant is located in a lovely area around the Pearl Street mall. The decor is simple, tasteful, and classic. Although The Kitchen came up as the #1 Yelp choice for breakfast/brunch, they didn't open until 11:00 and a breakfast/brunch... More

Try downstairs if you are looking for the bar scene with good food. But is you want to enjoy great food, great conversation with friends while relaxing and having a spectacular time, then upstairs is for you. Nice large tables and your entire group can fit around them with no issues. Quieter and terrific service.

We had to wait until 9:00 on our last night in Boulder to finally get in to the Kitchen for dinner, but it was worth the wait. We sat outside at tiny tables and watched the (mostly) visitors strolling by. Great service, friendly and knowledgable. And the food is just outstanding (except the stale and bland bread). Definitely try the... More

The restaurant itself has many community style tables so if you are less than a party of three and you'll likely be sitting with another couple, just as a heads up. It's very open so it can get a little loud, I would suggest a reservation as it was getting quite busy. The menu is small but very unique, there... More

My daughter and I were in town and heard we should try it. Were weren't too hungry, but thought we would just "snack". Their spicy greens are so good and fresh, the garlic fries...OMG. My daughter said the tomato soup was amazing, and she's picky! I also had s white wine sangria that was delicious. Definitely worth your time if... More

Normally I wait and do several reviews each time I log on, but this one needed an immediate review. I love the farm fresh concept and the staff was great. Delicious food, super helpful. I will be back next time I visit Colorado!

Very interesting and unique restaurant, and the food was good. Probably not a place you would visit often, but certainly an out of the ordinary experience.

We sat at the bar as we did not reserve ahead. This was even more fun as we got to watch the drinks being expertly poured. My husband loved the lobster tortillas, as did other guests at the bar. Don't miss this one!
