Diner Reviews
  • "This is the 3rd time we have tried Q's. We like the menu and the inventive cocktails. Unfortunately, it is the 2nd time they have been out of our chosen menu item for brunch. The staff is not friendly. They project a kind of "you are lucky to be here" attitude in the way you are greeted (or not), the manner in which they take your order, and the way it is served as well as lack of follow up once you have been served (no checking back with you, no offering condiments...). It has been consistently disdainful service on each of our visits. It is incredibly unfortunate because the setting is great and the menu, overall, is interesting."

  • "I've been back in Boulder for 10 years, and since my return Q's has been a favorite restaurant of ours. Our recent visit was disappointing, however. The menu lacked imagination and the food just wasn't that good. The Ahi was VERY overcooked; the potato that was served with the pork chop was half of a soggy baked potato(!) The dessert menu was less than inspired. Perhaps it was just an off night. I hope so."

  • "A last minute decision to eat out in Boulder, CO ended with making reservations at Q's. The restaurant was quiet, spacious, food beautifully presented by a friendly waiter. Nice place for a quiet dinner with excellently prepared food"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Q's had very good service and a pretty decent menu. My fish (Ahi) was way overcooked, but my wife really enjoyed her meal. The restaurant was not crowded at all which was nice for the noise level, but it also lacked some energy, especially on a Saturday night. Overall, a good meal and a great memory."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We've been to Q's several times and it is always excellent. The food is very attractively served with little extras on the plate--a couple of vegetables, spaetzle, sliced apples, etc. The prices are reasonable considering the quality of the food."

  • "It was a disappointing Mother Day's brunch. There 4 "kids" at the hostess desk when we arrived, not one of them acknowledged us until several minutes. We chose the restaurant over the buffet to ensure the food would be better, but the special drinks sounded great on the menu but were disappointing in taste. The food was just as disappointing. We left disappointed..."

  • "My girlfriend and I took my Mother and my Grandmother here for mothers day. The service was amazing, attentive, and helpful, easily some of the best service I have received anywhere. The FOOD! was amazing, portion size was adequate, and the taste was amazing. it's a small menu, but everything we had all had raves about its taste and subtle complexity. It was obvious that a talented chef had put the menu together to showcase their skills and it was perfectly executed. Price was extremely reasonable for the quality."

  • "The specials were wonderful, the wine was delicious and overall, my husband and I enjoyed dinner for our weekly date night. Would we go back when Boulder has so many wonderful offerings? I'm a little hesitant on that. "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Both the food and the service were unacceptable. Q's has been very dependable over the years, and the salmon entrees have always been wonderful. Tonight the salmon entree was overcooked and flavorless, and the risotto was remarkably unappealing to the palate and the eye."

  • "It's location in the hotel Boulderado often makes it forgotten by my group when we are thinking where to eat but wow am I glad we went. Such a fantastic meal. I hD duck breast and loved it. Sort of pricy but worth it. "

  • "Located in the historic Boulderado Hotel, I was delighted by the ease of parking (which can be a challenge in Boulder's downtown). Service was great and food spectacular."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We came for Sunday lunch, to my untrained eyes it wasn't that busy and they had plenty of staff, but the service was slow and the servers looked like they didn't care if we were there or not. For example, we arrived (with reservation) and had to wait and wait and wait for a table, during the wait the hostess never talked to us. When my mother asked for water with no ice, it came 30 minutes later and was delivered by a waitress who didn't even look at us as she plopped the water on the table on her way somewhere else. The food (eggs benedict) took 40 minutes to arrive, and during the wait not a single server came by to check on us, and the food arrived without apology for the wait and one order was wrong."

  • "The Restaurant Week menu was very good, with sufficient choices for each course. I would have preferred a dessert choice in lieu of the second course. The food was innovative and tasty. However the salad was served with the squash, forgotten by the kitchen and our waiter. Overall a good dining choice in an historic setting."

  • "We came here to celebrate our 1st anniversary and had a great time with delicious food! We forgot it was restaurant week so it caught us by surprise but we loved everything we ordered off the menu. They did an app plus 1 savory dishes for RW instead of the typical app, dinner and dessert. As a savory person, I loved the extra course. Had a delicious quinoia, butternut squash and spinach salad to start (I'm dreaming of it right now at 7am.....), a delicious mushroom/chard/parm risotto and an amazing pork chop with brussel sprouts and polenta. They had several wines on their RW week menu as well too - we had the pinot noir, yum yum. We all were very happy with the good, service and atmosphere, can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Q's is great for brunch - in my opinion, it's one of the best in Boulder. The prices are comparable to anywhere else and they have a menu with a good variety. It's definitely going to be our go-to spot when we have guests in town."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "We've dined here many times over the past 10 years and always found it a consistently good experience. Located in the historic Bolderado Hotel, just off Pearl Street, the location is great, as is the food. The wine list was good but not particularly extensive."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Worst service I have ever experienced! Waited 20 minutes to be served, waited another 15 minutes for a drink and wine wasn't served till after dinner! Waiter didn't even care. Will never go back!!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Had an OK experience. Staff was friendly but appeared over worked. Thought the price was too high for the quantity of food we received. Had to ask for bread. Food was good. Would go back but not for a special occassion because of the pricing."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Walked in and there was no host stand. Well, at least at first. It was placed in an odd spot away from the front door and halfway into the restaurant. Because of this, everyone looks lost when they come in, for the first time. When sitting down I was facing toward the kitchen. This view may have been the worst thing I have ever seen at a restaurant. They tried to do the "visual kitchen" thing but it was so forced it looked more like a view into McDonald's. It literally looked like they took a hole saw and cut a rectangle out of the wall and then slapped in some wired plexiglass. The inside of the kitchen was really an eyesore, too. Totally missed the point to an "open kitchen" look. You can't just make it visible; it has to look good."

  • "The lack of energy notable. Good thing new management is taking over!"

  • "Always a good experience. The service was great as usual, our group was served efficiently and cheerfully . Request for separate checks accepted without a pause. The food was tasty, well presented, hot, and prompt. We will return."

  • "we've had drinks here before and they were great and we love the ambience of the Boulderado, but went for a business dinner and we're very dissapointed. The wine special was excellent, but we had an unacceptably long wait for dinner even thought restaurant appeared slow. The pumpkin soup was excellent, but the mains finally arrived and the requested "rare" Tuna special order was way over-cooked, cant understand why the cook would have ever let it leave the kitchen? Salmon special portion was very small and not very tasty. Not memorable and try to avoid seating in the glassed in dinning area, it went from blazing hot to freezing cold and we had to ask for the temperature adjustment several times. Dissapointing for a client dinner."

  • "We have been to Q's several times and really enjoy it. This time there was a new bartender of just 3 months and he was WAY better than the last two that were there. Also, there was a slight problem with my meal but I was impressed with the way they resolved it. Our wine, apps and meal were all good. We are all human and make mistakes, the deal-breaker is how the resolution is handled. The server was good-natured and may our meal even more enjoyable. We will return again and again. Shawn and Corrine at two servers we will certainly ask for again."

  • "We went on a Friday and this restaurant was about 50-75% full. Our server was outstanding, however it became readily apparent that the restaurant was significantly understaffed, particularly the bar. If Q's wants to be on par with the top tier of restaurants in Boulder it will need to staff up accordingly."

  • "We've been to Qs before and actually thought we had booked a reservation at The Corner Bar which is also serviced by Qs. Turns out that The Corner Bar doesn't take reservations. We ended up with reservations at Qs. For the price, the food was very average. My wife had the scallop special and I had the saltimboca mahi-mahi. The sides were bland at best. The mahi was overcooked and both dishes had exactly the same red pepper type base sauce. So, in essence, we thought we were trying to be diversified but ended up palate wise with the same. We preferred the crab cake appetizer as it had a good blend of crab meat as opposed to breading."

  • "Love Q's. It has become one of our favorite places to dine. Food, service, ambiance were perfect. We both had the lamb special and it was excellent. Started with Cesear Salad which was crisp and fresh. I enjoy Reisling wine and the one they have was perfect. Service was excellent. The waiter was pleasant and attentive. Will definitely return. Highly recommend Q's if you haven't been there."

  • "I'd give the food top scores for taste and presentation. My steak was cooked perfectly, and my dessert sublime! Unfortunately, the service was slow. It appeared to be the fault of management, not of the server. She was professional, friendly and accommodating, and working very hard - but she appeared to be the only server for the entire front of the house (which was about half-full). There were other wait staff and bar staff, but our "waitress" appeared to be the only one who was taking drink and food orders. Others were present, but filling water glasses, delivering and removing dishes….I will return to Q's though. It is one of my favorite Boulder restaurants."

  • "We had a very nice brunch on Sunday. The restaurant was very accommodating, especially since we had two children with us. The menu options are very unique, and the servings generous and hearty. Service was outstanding. I would highly recommend Q's to anyone visiting Boulder. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and a true representation of historical Boulder"
