We are thrilled we had dinner the final night of our 2 week vacation at Leaf. We have fabulous and highly regarded vegan & veg restaurants in Philly, but this stands tall among the greats. Wow. We loved it. I wanted to order ALL of the small plates and in fact, made 3 of them my meal. I loved the... More

My husband, 15 month old son and I visited Leaf on our last night in Boulder. Sometimes we find strictly vegetarian restaurants to be slightly pretentious, or uncomfortable. But as a vegetarian family, we wanted to go out to a place with options to choose from, so based on the excellent reviews, we gave it a try! Leaf was a... More

A friend took us here and said it was her favorite spot. Dead on she was, the food was inventive, tasty, colorful and more than adequate portions. The waitstaff was fun, interactive with guests and knew their product well. If you asked a question about the food, they usually knew what you wanted to find out, or walked over to... More

Honestly, one of the best vegetarian meals we've ever had. We shared one of the price fixe dinners and selected the charred poblano gnocchi small plate (the corn, cherry tomatoes and the pepitas melded well) followed by the chickpea salad (wonderfully tangy dressing) and the Hungarian stuffed cabbage entree (lots here, from the roasted garlic to the nicely spiced potatoes)....

Bright and airy, Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant is just off of (the non-pedestrian part) Pearl Street Mall and offers fresh and creative local/organic vegetable-centric food with plenty of options for vegans. At a recent lunch, we started off deliciously with the buffalo cauliflower tacos - SO good! I enjoyed the "crab" cake sandwich along with the addictive potato & sweet potato... More

We chose Leaf because of a vegetarian friend's excellent experience a few months ago. We were not disappointed. The menu is large enough to offer a variety of foods but not too large as to try to do too much. I got the $28 three-course prix fixe and was well-pleased. My favorite might have been the avocado tartare small plate.... More

To find a vegetarian restaurant after two weeks on the road was a lovely, refreshing change. Rather than be faced with eating the only vegetarian option available, there is a wide choice. Staff were friendly. There was a good selection of wines as well. We didn't have room for dessert and so cannot comment on these. A nice setting and... More

Lot's of vegetarian/vegan places are a little "one note" either TVP or soy or tempeh, but I found Leaf delightfully refreshing from both a menu and personality perspective. My guess is if this was someone's first time going "green" they would be treated the exact same as someone who has been a life-long-card-carrying-vegan/tarian! I like that. Service was good (a...

I went to leaf vegetarian restaurant on Thursday May 19th. Its a smaller restaurant just off of pearl street. There is a decent amount of seating indoors, but we decided to sit outside on the patio. Our server was wonderful, I don't recall her name. We had spring rolls, flatbread pizza, pad thai, and sushi salad with 'crab' cake. Everything... More

I have lived in Boulder for almost 20 years and this was the first time I have eaten at Leaf! The restaurant is beautiful, quiet and the food is delicious. I had a raw kale salad and a crab cake (obviously not real crab). The location is a bit off the beaten path so it was quite lovely for a... More
