“Great Food”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I recently ate dinner at the Kitchen with three friends. We were able to get a reservation same day (made around 3pm) for dinner at 7:30 that night.
We started our meal with delicious cocktails and wine. The server was helpful describing the drinks and wine with great knowledge, and we were all happy with our choices.
For dinner we had the price fixe family style meal. One of our group could not eat a part of the meal due to food allergy and they were able to add extra hummus and crostini to supplement her aspect of the meal. Otherwise the price fixe is not able to be changed. Appetizer of olives, crostini with pea tapanade, and beet salad were fantastic! The meal- mussels with white sauce (with lots of crostini for dipping juice!), crab pasta, and Colorado lamb was superb! We had adequate portion size for our group, none to spare, but we couldn't have eaten another bite! The dessert, strawberries with cream were delicious and just right after our large meal. I had wine with dinner that was a portuguese red and it was perfect.
It was a great night out with friends!

“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

I had lunch here and the price is VERY reasonable. The offer a lunch menu for $12 which includes a smal salad and pasta, or pizza, or pannini. The portions a big enough to satisfy your hunger. The only issue I had with the place was that they charged me $2.00 for a small bread (french roll like). The staff eas friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was great.

“Kitchen is a Friendly Place”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Had a great dinner with family at the Kitchen. The steak and roasted lamb were great and the home made pasta was very creamy and delicious. Loved the cheese balls and the octopus appetizers. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. The hostess was also friendly. Too often they tend to be aloof and uninterested in their guests. Not the case in the Kitchen. We felt like valued friends. We will be back.

Only criticism is one I have for many restaurants today, the staff in general needs to watch for tables that need bussed. Leaving empty dishes on the table too long is aggravating and needs management attention.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Thank you TripAdvisor for helping us find this jewel of a restaurant! We were in Boulder to visit the campus and wanted a nice lunch and found the Kitchen. We had a FANTASTIC lunch! Our server Sergei could not have been more helpful. Everything we ordered from my daughter's mac and cheese to my son's steak frites was outstanding. Very fresh and organic ingredients. My wife and I shared the lamb burger and peeky toe crab salad (it was the standout) and they paired it with some very nice wines. BTW, I really like their wine list. It is well-selected and quite unusual compared to most wine lists. We loved the South African Rhone varietal with our lamb. We were all stuffed but the dessert menu was very compelling so we ordered the Eton Mess and sticky toffee pudding. Wow! They were amazing! Not a bite was left. Highly recommend the Kitchen. On par with Sweet Basil in Vail.
