    We were in town moving my daughter in to the dorms at CU and wanted a special dinner for her 18th birthday. We were delayed twice and the staff at Jill's could not have been nicer about it! The food and service were spectacular. We will definitely be back!

    First time diners, originally wanted to experience through Restaurant week, invited another couple to celebrate some of their good news. From the moment we walked in we were treated superbly! Arrived a bit early, hostess got our table ready, place settings were gorgeous. Surprise appetizers were exquisite. Sommelier was very helpful. Food was INCREDIBLY good, varied selection. Definitely will be second...and third diners.

    My husband planned this date night and what a surprise! The restaurant was perfect...the food amazing...and the presentation made us feel like royalty. We loved the ambience starting with the secluded corner niche, lit taper candle, and greetings from Shannon (our waitress) followed by the maitre d' presenting us with a complimentary appetizer. Right to the end, we were amazed by the care and attention given us. We even had a night cap on the patio while listing to some soothing Brazilian music. We will recommend and return for another special occasion!

    In downtown Boulder at the Hotel St. Julien, Jill's was a pleasant setting for lunch. Two options were offered: the lunch menu and the lunch buffet. We managed to make the lunch a five course experience as dishes from soup to dessert were offered. From a light salad with seared tuna and pickled onions, soup au pistou, to five different mini pizzas, braised short ribs with polenta, very well done, to a myriad of desserts. Too much but many choices to delight even picky eaters. The buffet was definitely a success.

    My wife & I decided to try Jill's last Saturday/Aug 16 for the first time after I had read some online reviews. We wanted a nice dinner treat for us, and we sure did find that! The ambience was nice; the service was superb with a young woman waitress who had just moved to work at Jill's from Kauai 4 months prior; and the food was a real treat.

    Boulder has many fine restaurants, but Jill's new French luncheon buffet is simply the best value in town and perhaps the best value in Colorado. For less than $30 per couple ($12.95/person, including a complimentary glass of wine), patrons can experience outstanding French cooking without spending a fortune travelling to France!!!

    Would you love to travel & dine in France but simply don't have the time and/or money??? Now you can in Jill's restaurant & bistro in the St. Julien Hotel. My wife and I have traveled and dined throughout France, especially Paris, and have discovered that Jill's new weekday French buffet competes with the best Paris has to offer but at a much lower price (less than $30 per couple). VIVA FRANCE!! VIVA JILL'S!!! VIVA BOULDER!!!!!

    The new lunch buffet was great, delicious food, the waiters just took forever to get us what we needed, inc. the check. When ppl are on an hour lunch break, we need a bit quicker service. Other that that, we loved it!

    Jill's Provencal lunch is superb. We sampled the bouillabaisse, chicken, salade nicoise, ratatouille, wine and more --- all were delicious. All reminded me of France -- which I visited six months ago. We were very pleased with the food, the room, the staff and the price.

The drink and food options are widely varied. Table side preparations are done with class and no snooty attitude - just a wonderful experience orchestrated by true professionals.

    Although Boulder is home to many excellent restaurants, not so many offer their fine food in a setting of such elegance. Doing so is one extra that Jill's in the St. Julian provides, along with accessible covered parking and being in the midst of bustling downtown Boulder's energy and activity. A table by a window offers the opportunity for always interesting people watching. The wait staffers are attentive, skilled and friendly. And, oh yes, the food is grand. Perfect for a special evening out.

    The lunch buffet used to be pretty good a few years ago, but it has been going downhill since. This last time I thought the sauces were way too heavy on the pasta and none of the food was outstanding...just ok. Pizza was cold. This lovely hotel and lovely space needs to have an excellent chef even for the lunch buffet.

    We went here for my sons graduation with several out of town guests. The choice of food for seafood lovers, meat lovers and breakfast lovers was amazing. Everyone had something that they wanted and loved. My youngest loves the pizza here and even though it wasn't on the menu the chefs were happy to make her one. Only criticism is that if you are on the short side it is hard to see all the choices on the buffet near the omelet station...

    Having tried virtually all the lunch buffets in Boulder, none can compete with Jill's for overall best value -- i.e., a huge variety of all-you-can-eat French-American gourmet selections (fabulous main dishes, made-to-order pastas, sides, desserts, salads, fruit, etc. etc. etc.) that are always delicious, nutritious and complemented with outstanding service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/8/2014
    I made a reservation for lunch more than 2 months in advance. It was never revealed that the Thursday before CU graduation would be buffet only. We were informed it was the only way they could handle the crowds, and the restaurant was not even full. Our party was very disappointed in the minimal offerings for a $25 lunch. We had a vegetarian and diabetic in our group and the offerings they could enjoy was very sparse. Shame on the St. Julien for not informing its guests what the protocol for the day would be! We have dined here before and we selected it again since it was a nice setting for a quiet lunch celebration. The service was adequate, but a refill on my coffee would of been nice!!

    No valet parking for dinner guests started out the evening with a bad feeling. Then, having a very nice but inexperienced waiter in a restaurant which should be one of the best in Boulder.... Took forever to get our drinks, both steaks ordered were gristlely and a Cesar salad ordered was never delivered. When the waiter asked if we wanted to take the salad home in a doggie bag, we knew we were dealing with a new person! Overall, the evening was not up to expectation and I will not return to Jill's. There are so many good Restauarants in Boulder with much better food and prices. No need to overpay for a bad meal just because Jill's is at the St. Julien Hotel!
