Fantastic staff! Friendly and knowledgeable. Central restaurant offering modern surroundings with a quality menu. Our group shared a chef's platter to start then followed with bolognese pasta, half chicken, quinoa salad and lamb shank. All with quirky twists but deliciously modern. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

The vibe of this restaurant is eclectic and certainly fits well with all that the Boulder area has to offer. Located on the 13th St Pedestrian Mall, the cocktail and menu choices are inventive, exciting, and wonderfully tasty. The service from James was spot on, professional, and excellent. Based on the wonderful flavors of our Grey Gardens Martini, their own... More

Great food, service and atmosphere make The Kitchen a new dinner favorite in Boulder. Not an extensive menu but the flavors and quality are very good. A little on the pricey side but not outrageous and you get what you pay for. Highly recommended!

Get the lamb burger, it was absolutely amazing. The prices were a bit high but it was well worth the meal.

The ambience was very pleasant and the service was quite good. However, the green salads we had were unremarkable,especially considering the price. Although the entrées were tasty, the portion sizes were extremely minute ( again, especially considering the price ) and the only thing that left us from feeling hungry when we left ( and dessert was ordered) was the...

Waffled about the rating here. First, the service was top-notch. Friendly and efficient and helpful, not hovering, not lost when needed. One of my companions said hers was the best meal she'd had in a Boulder restaurant for a long time, which is great. I wouldn't go that far. I'd heard that they were innovative and surprising, but I found... More

This was the first spot we hit for a late lunch upon arrival for the weekend. The friendly met service, other patrons, and appetizing menu options could not be beat. The refreshing cocktail went down so smooth. Our waiter recommended it, I can't recall the name but it was there version of a mule, although much more exciting. The crab... More
