My fiancé and I came to theMy fiancé and I came to the boulder cork for our 1 year anniversary. we repeated the experience for our 5 year anniversary. After four years nothing changed! still a great restaurant with great service. All around fantastic! Great wine list, great meat choices, great sides and sauces. our server was attentive but silent and moved like a ninja. we will be going back, no more waiting 4 years for such good food!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable dinner at the CorkWe met friends from out of town at the Boulder Cork for a special dinner. It was a very special evening with very good food, great ambience, and outstanding service. The steaks and prime rib are great choices. Eating at the Cork can be pricey, but worth it for special occasions.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Reputaton Well DeservedThe Cork's reputation for outstanding food choices, with a well paired wine list and outstanding service remains well deserved. Steaks are butter knife tender, salads and sides the freshest, staff is congenial, pleasant and friendly. Truly a FINE dining experience. For the hearty appetite recommend the Colorado Cut Prime Rib, for the not so hearty the Filet is to die for.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWedding AnniversaryThis was our second time going to an anniversary dinner at the Boulder Cork. This one happened to be our 32nd. The staff was great and gave us a desert on the house for our special occasion. The filet mignon was fantastic and the service was superb. They also have a great happy hour!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMbirthday celebrationWe had a wonderful birthday dinner. The prime rib was excellent, as was the complementary piece of ice cream cake and candle. Our server was warm, friendly, and quick to please. My one complaint would be that the prices were higher than necessary .6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood solid service and foodWe are not big beef eaters, but this is the place to go if you like meat. We had appetizers and a salad. Seems like the place to go for Happy Hour because we hit the tail end of Happy Hour and the place was hopping. Then just after 6:30 pm lots of people left and it was much quieter. It's too noisy for a cozy, romantic dinner, especially during Happy Hour. The Cobb salad was very good. The artichoke appetizer was good. The grilled watermelon with goat cheese on a bed of endive was very good, but the price was way too much - $13.50. It was a special and the price was a surprise when the bill came.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Beef in BoulderPrime Rib, Filet, & Sirloin cuts are absolutely outstanding. Great wine list to find the right wine to accompany the beef.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMan oldie but still a goodieBoulder Cork has outstanding fish specials, steaks and prime rib . Their wine list is exception and the food is always expertly prepapred. It's a standby for us and we've never had a bad meal. Great happy hour menu.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPrime Prime RibI am originally from the midwest, near Warren County, IL, "Prime Beef Capital of the World" so I have had plenty of fine steak and prime rib. The Cork's Colorado Cut is up there with the best I've ever had. Maybe the best. My co-diners raved about their respective prime rib end cut and sirloin selections. I look forward to my next visit to the Cork. The service was attentive and friendly.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodThe Cork is consistently good--food, service, atmosphere. You can't go wrong.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWaiter, awesome. Meal servedWaiter, awesome. Meal served over 2+ hours, too long. Food itself - wedge salad/Mahi Mahi was weak but steak was awesome. Stick with main proteins, just far better from kitchen (our pastime there food was awesome).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAtmosphere warm, romanticAtmosphere warm, romantic setting. Staff makes the experience wonderful - they are very accomodating and friendly -the hostess kindly let us walk around the restaurant to find a table of our choice. Food high quality - ceasar salad dressing very delicate and tasty, not heavy with cream nor overdone with the anchovy taste. Steak and fish were good.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a special dining treat!We often dine at The Boulder Cork. Service is exceptional, the menu offers a great variety of choices with daily specials and the ambiance is comforting. Great for special events as well!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBoulder Cork for lunchFood and service was excellent. Hostess was rude as she sat us at the table. Rude does not work well for the prices they charge! Alcohol charge was very high. Shot of Whiskey was almost $10.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMYummyChose the cork because my dad went there after his graduation many years ago. It didn't disappoint. The meat was cooked very well and the vegetables were good. Althought it was a little pricey, the atmosphere was great and the service was very good.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMToo loud but good food and service.Celebrating graduation we had great service and the food was good. My prime rib was as good as I have ever had and my sons teriyaki steak was delicious. Ceasar salad was not great. Unfortunately the acoustics are terrible. They could reallly use some sound absorption solutions in The Cork.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, Good Wine, Good PriceThe cork is a great little restaurant and a rare find in Boulder since they have wide assort of mouth watering steaks. The desert menu is great and will break the will of the most diehard dieter. The service is good and you can always find a nice wine to complement your meal.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfulWonderful food, very good service, for a special occasion.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat findLove the romantic feel of the back dining room; it was perfect for our special occasion.
The food was great and the service was outstanding! My fiance had the Oscar Filet and I had the buffalo steak; both were great, but his was amazing!!
A great find and will return again when visiting Boulder! So happy that we didn't have to fight crowds/party, etc. downtown!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the service and theLoved the service and the food was great.
The decor is dated, but the other thing more then made up for it.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb filet done preciselySuperb filet done precisely as requested. Pleasant, accommodating server who took time to engage personally with us. A most enjoyable evening in which to celebrate a birthday.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly dinner for my birthdayThe early dinner is served from 5pm to 6pm. You have to ask for the menu. As 'senior citizens' it's wonderful. The portions are a little smaller, so just right, and it helps us stay on budget. We celebrated yet another birthday at "The Cork," and were served their incredible mud pie! We all agree it is the best mud pie we've ever had! We highly recommend this great restaurant and will go back again and again! PS The service has always been excellent! Happy, knowledgeable, warm people make the experience even more delightful!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleasant experience.Very pleasant experience. Knowledgeable server. Friendly staff. Great food selections. Very tasty.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHad great dinner there! PlentyHad great dinner there! Plenty to pick from on the menu and all was great. Steak and lamb chops were super good!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA special-occasion gemThe steaks here were great. The sauces for the steaks were a mixed bag. Loved the blue cheese sauce and the Bernaise, but the chimichurri was not a favorite.
I prefer warm bread, with olive oil for dipping. Here, the bread is served room temperature and the butter served with it is cold.
The drinks also got mixed reviews. One person loved the house margarita. The Cosmo was overly sweet. The wine selection was very good. The waitress brought a glass of wine, when a bottle was ordered.
In general, the waitress seemed rushed and didn't take the time to inquire about how we were doing and if we had additional requests.
The Cork is a lovely place for special occasions, but is far too expensive for us to dine there often.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMUnexpected change in menuThis rating applies to dinner at 7 p.m. On a Saturday night. We appreciate the consistently good service and the diversity of the menu. We were sad to see that the small fillet has disappeared from the menu. All of the other steaks are too big, so we ended up with burgers, which were very good. Go hungry!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent service; food wasexcellent service; food was good, but over-priced.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed delicious prime ribEnjoyed delicious prime rib entrée by fireplace. Really like this restaurant.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is fantastic!This place is fantastic! Come here to spend time with people and enjoy the food that is made for you. If you come thinking you will be in and out in an hour... you are mistaken. Take your time. Jim does a fantastic job with meat and sea food. You won't be disjointed.
