The restaurant is beautiful, the staff friendly and the food amazing. Only thing not to like is that it's a bit pricey, but for what you are getting, don't think you could expect to really pay less. Worth a splurge for sure!

First time at The Restaurant. Had the zucchini summer salad-- awesome! Cold sliced zucchini garnished with bits of ricotta cheese, crushed whole almonds and fresh mint leaves sliced thin. Flavor was exquisite!

This farm to table restaurant hits all the marks. The dishes are creative and delicious. They are fresh and gourmet but the prices are very reasonable. And, they promote several organizations as well as community uniting events at the restaurant. LOVE

We spent some time ambling along Pearl Street and chose this from the many restaurants available here. We were very impressed with the choice, waiting staff, food, beer and price. Service was spot on and food was tasty, and hot.

Every time we go to Boulder (and CO in general) we try to eat at the Kitchen. The restaurant is so good. First, the staff is extremely knowledgeable...especially about the drinks/beers, which are amazing. They are constantly changing and updating the menu, but keep some...More

Yes, I would call ahead for reservations. It's not a large place and that will be a holiday weekend.
