Happy Hour in the gardenBeautiful setting under big trees, food was delicious but the portions were minute. The dessert was literally one single bite. I don't expext a full size plate, but two tiny crostinis for 6 bucks? The mussells were outstanding. Some of the outdoor chairs are really uncomfortable on the back.
Service was great, but it wasn't very busy. Overall, a pleasant Happy Hour :-)5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Outdoor Seating & FoodJust the perfect place for outdoor dining in quiet downtown Niwot. THELAR ge Cottonwood tress overhanging the patio give the place a rich atmosphere day or night.. The menu is full of interesting dishes thoughtfully prepared. They are generally delicious. The waitstaff are attentive without being annoying. I always enjoy coming to Colterra, especially in the Spring and Summer when eating outside is possible.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchEnjoyed a fabulous brunch on Mother's Day. Food was great and we did not feel rushed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMImaginativeFood at Colterra is imaginative and perfectly prepared --- fresh, local ingredients with verve.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's day brunchThe brunch menu (prix fixe) was excellent, and it was gorgeous out on the patio in the morning. I love that we can sit just a foot away from rows of well-tended little plants, some of which obviously are headed for our plates.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Fabulous!Colterra is the farm-to-table gem of the greater Denver-Boulder area. The food is so seasonal and fresh. It's presented beautifully and with integrity. Service varies but is not ever bad. The patio is just lovely. Dine there if weather permits. You won't be disappointed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful restaurant highlyWonderful restaurant highly recommended for a purely Devine dinning experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day a little too pricey...I usually enjoy going to Colterra. It is our favorite restaurant as a family. This past Mother's Day was an exception :(. Four of us went to Colterra on Mother's Day and were slightly disappointed in what they had to offer. The brunch was mainly breakfast and was extremely over-priced. We have had many brunches there in the past, and have always had exceptional meals. Mother's day seemed to be double the normal price and less choices. The service as always was exceptional. The ambience wonderful. Just disappointed in the price this time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Brunch!The Hazel Dell Mushroom Scramble never disappoints....always fresh tasting and delicious every time I order it! (I usually order without the cheese). The fresh lemonade was also terrific...not too sweet or too tart. The Cinnamon Griddle Cakes were good, nothing special though, except for the mascarpone creme...I could eat a bowl of it!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMService was unusually slow,Service was unusually slow, but they were very busy. We would have ordered a second bottle of wine for the group, but no one came to ask. Noise level was uncomfortably high. We could not hear each other. Again, we have not had this problem before, and it was very busy. We will definitely go back. Delicious food, as usual!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Our FavoritesColterra really knows fresh food and how to cook it. It is not one of those places that hurries you in and out. The food is delicious and healthy and the service is impeccable. It's tucked away in a little picturesque town called Niwot. The only reason I hesitate is I don't want it to be so popular that you have to wait a month to get in. You can take the noisy or vibrant hot spots and give me Colterra where you have the peace to really enjoy your food. Bob appetite.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW!!!We had our son's University of Colorado/Boulder post graduation celebration at this restaurant. The food was superb. Everyone in our party of 12 had an excellent meal. They were able to accommodate our diverse party for ages 2 to 86. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a great meal!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable luncheon with friendMet girl friends for lunch at Colterra's. It was lovely.

The menu was very investing and we opted for the special - rack mod lamb. It was exceptional! Our waiter, Jonathan, made our entire experience a true joy.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and wine list wereThe food and wine list were excellent. We had a 7:00 reservation on a Weds night but had to wait a few minutes for our table. The restaurant was very busy and service was slow. Perhaps we should have been ready for leisurely dining at a relaxed pace. It was also noisy at first, because there were happy people laughing and talking loudly at tables near us.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a delightful lunchWe had a delightful lunch "on the green" at Colterra.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had to wait about 5 minutesWe had to wait about 5 minutes before a host finally acknowledged us. They asked us to sit at the bar until they could seat us. That seemed strange because there were many empty tables. We waited about 10 more minutes and then found out they were waiting for an outdoor table for us. No one had asked us our preference and we did not want to be outside. We got seated immediately and from that point on it was a very pleasurable lunch...just noisy (not energetic).4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Brunch experience in years!Best brunch/dining experience in years! The brunch menu was innovative and featured all locally sourced ingredients. The tilapia was fantastic, the beignets were excellent and the egg dishes were well prepared and served nice and hot. For dessert, the salted chocolate caramel torte was incredible! The server was professional, personable and fun. The brunch cocktails were creative, well crafted and well prepared. The bartender is a real master mixologist who enjoys sharing his expertise and his "Breakfast in Bed" is one of the best cocktails this former bartender has ever had. To top it all off, the pricing is an excellent value for this top quality! We can't wait to go back in good weather and enjoy the beautiful outdoor dining!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday BrunchVery lovely atmosphere and enjoyed wonderful service.
