    The white Bijou is their best cocktail (it's not on the menu)

    Fresh farm friendly offerings that are as healthy as they are delicious. Had the Falafel Quinoa Flatbread for lunch and would recommend for anyone. Perfect portion sizes and environment for lunch.

    The bolognese is outstanding. Amazing place all around---from the atmosphere to the wine list.

    For brunch, get a Bloody Mary. Their house recipe is outstanding. The pan roasted chicken for dinner may sound simple but is some of the most flavorful chicken you will ever eat. Scallops rock too.

    One of my favorite meals in Boulder, the food here is creative and delicious. Try the Kitchen Next Door for a more casual meal as well.

    The food as described on the menu does not do the actual food delivered any justice.

    Delicious food. Masterchef standards! We got the best pork belly ever and also alaskan halibut fish. Fenomenal!

    One of the 3 Kitchen restaurants on the same block in Boulder. This is the fine dining option w/strong emphasis of local sourcing of ingredients. Everything was excellent. Perfect option for a splurge

    Possibly the best restaurant in town. Seasonal menu with no snobbery attached. Just great food. Go next door to Kitchen Next Door if you want something quicker, or cheaper!

    You cannot eat there without learning that it is 100% wind-powered and that its cooking oils power a staffer's car. Try their roasted Munson Farm squash "farroto." Read more

    Glad they had a tasting menu so I didn't have to choose from all the delicious sounding options. Attentive staff kept the treats coming smoothly. One problem: our table was too small.

    Had the Taste of the Kitchen (4 course meal). Mussels were divine. Steak was slightly over-seasoned. Dessert with latte was on point. Yums all the way!

    More casual and beverage-focused than its downstairs counterpart, the Kitchen sees diners packing in for appetizers and entrees made in a wood-fired oven on weeknights Read more

    Great place for lunch at the bar. Get the Eton Mess. Big enough for two.

    Not bad, but definitely way too much use of bread crumbs (and salt). Tomato soup was the highlight

    If you're here for lunch, the roast beef sandwich is fantastic, and so are the fries and ketchup that come with it. (Fun fact :: the owner is the brother of Elon Musk)

    Totally overrated and overpriced. Don't waste your time, especially if you're a vegetarian.

    Definitely try the tomato soup w/olive oil. Was perfect and don't forget to dip your buttered bread in it. The homemade gnocchi was amazing too.

    A little expensive, but the food is amazing. The tomato soup comes with a splash of the freshest olive oil you have ever tasted.
