Diner Reviews
  • "This is our second year at the Boulderado for Mother's Day brunch and I continue to recommend it to families. Great selection of options, from homemade waffles to prime rib, but the chocolate fountain is amazing, and why my girls love to come here! They do have a large selection of other desserts as well, so there's lots of choices for everyone. Enjoy!"

  • "The food was excellent and plentiful. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The ambiance is special. My 88 year old mother loved it, but families with younger children seemed equally happy. "

  • "Wow. The made-to-order omelets, prime rib, chicken, deserts, veggies, mahi, etc. were all fresh with great and varying flavors. And for only $50 including taxes and tip! We all had a great, classy time."

  • "Although the food selection was good, our family would have liked to have had beef and chicken choices."

  • "The Hotel Boulderado is one of those places that screams romance. The old style charm and tradition is refreshing in our constantly changing, constantly updating world. It is wonderful to have a place like this to go to where you can get lost in the one you came with while the rest of the world slips away."

  • "My husband and I went to have a romantic valentines dinner, but that is not what we got! It was very bright in the mezzanine. The music was very far away and sounded like it should have been in a Mexican reataurant, not a valentines celebration. The food was good, but our server bought our food so fast that we were in and out in a little over a hour. It was not what we expected or wanted at all!"

  • "Nicholas and I had an overall disappointing evening, and I will be sending a full letter of review detailing our poor experience. And as for "Noise level", too loud, and annoying."

  • "The Holiday Dinner event at the Boulderado combined excellent food, with a beautiful hotel, in the wonderful town of Boulder, CO. We decided to travel for the Christmas holiday this year, and I am so glad that we chose the Boulderado for both dining and our hotel stay. The holiday dinner had many, wonderful food choices and did not skimp on dessert either! I would highly recommend this dining experience to others who will be in Boulder during the holidays - whether they live there or are travelling. The only caution, is to book your dinner reservations early, because I hear that they sold out quickly."

  • "The holiday buffet at the Hotel Boulderado seems to be getting too large for them to handle. We have been going there for seven years, and this year the food was not as tasty, and the service was poor. The wait staff does not have to do much, because it is a buffet, but our tables were not cleared when we went for seconds, our water glasses were not attended to, and we waited ten minutes after being seated to be asked if we wanted drinks. The roast beef was tough, and cut to thickly. The chicken was also tough, and the Mediterranean themed fish flavors did not blend with the holiday meal flavors. The steamed vegetables were nice, but for the price of the meal (over $50 per person), one would expect the vegetables to be better."

  • "We really enjoy the Holiday Tea, a tradition with our family. The tree was amazing as always, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Good food, great ambiance, a good time was had by all."
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "Definitely THE place to go for high tea. Next time we will opt for the champagne, too. Delicious little sandwiches and desserts and a special tray for our vegetarian, too. We were seated next to the balcony overlooking the 3 story tall live Christmas tree in the lobby! Wow! Reservations are a must because this is a sold out event every Christmas."

  • "My friends and I had a wonderful time at the tea. We were seated promptly at our own table at our reservation time. The hotel was decorated magnificently. A children's choir singing carols entertained several times during our tea. The tea sandwiches were good but the scones were rock hard and I found them inedible. The sweets were plentiful and most were very good. The hotel added 20% gratuity onto the bill so watch out. We used valet parking which was unbelievably reasonable at 1.25 per hour."

  • "I normally really enjoy our teas at The Hotel Boulderado. We had booked the tea for the time the Boulder Chorale would be singing. However, by having it in the mezzanine the Chorale had to stand on the staircase. As one of the larger tables, we were seated in a far corner and as a result could not hear the music."

  • "My daughter and I attended the holiday tea. We had a wonderful time and loved the carolers. We plan on making this an annual event."

  • "It was a nice relaxing atmosphere for a Mother's Day brunch it was was loud, you were able to have a conversation without having to raise your voice. And the staff was helpful and friendly. And the menu was wonder and plenty of options to choose from."

  • "The Legends of Colorado Women was a terrific experience to share with my daughter. Learning about our local history in the first person is effective and the period costumes were fun. The historic Boulderado is a perfect setting. We had a memorable and pleasant afternoon."

  • "The lamb was the star of the show, but the man cutting it was taking a very long time to service the line. The food was all in all very good, but lacked variety. The chocolate fountain was also good, but because we were there at the end of service the chocolate was rather thick and gloopy."

Went first time with my sisters and our grandaughters, great way to introducechildren to a tea. they treat them special and kind.This year went with friends, we all enjoyed it. Very, warm, comfortable and youare not rushed at all....a winner!"

  • "Sandwiches were just ok. Desserts were fabulous. Service was not that great, but the server added 20% to our party of 2 without asking, which was rude, as she wasn't that good at all, but we didn't haggle."
    Dined on 12/19/2012
  • "it was very nice however for the price there should be more sandwiches; left there very hungry. Gratuity is a bit high for two people I thought."

    Dined on 12/15/2012
  • "Was fabulous to get to meet and speak with all the Nutcracker characters. Really fun. Service was extremely slow....we thought maybe the server had too many tables to attend to."

  • "This was an event that I looked forward to because the Boulderado is a wonderful historic hotel, and I thought it would be a great outing for my elderly mother. Everything was fine except the food. The scone was ordinary. Then came finger sandwiches that sounded great on paper but were uninteresting and not particularly tasty. Then came a huge plate of sweets. No one ever offered more hot water for our tea. The cost of the tea was $22 or $32 depending on whether the tea was a benefit. I still love the hotel and consider it a great asset to the community, but the hotel needs to provide nicer food for the tea. We were disappointed."

  • "This was my 9th year of attending the Christmas Tea at the Hotel Boulderado. It is always a relaxing event with beautiful surroundings and music. The food is delicious and the tea selection is outstanding. I look forward to my 10th year at the Boulderado."

  • "We go every year. The Boulderado is dressed for the holidays, and with the choir singing holiday songs, it really adds to the season. The tea is excellent as well."
    Dined on 12/8/2012
  • "This holiday tea at the Boulderado has to be the best in the area! It's now our annual event for our holiday gathering with our friends. The carolers, the decorations and the beautiful setting could not be more special...not to mention the fantastic food and service. Don't miss this opportunity!"
