                Staff was great and without asking, they suggested we move further away from a loud large party. Food was terrific! I appreciate when restaurants give a small taste of a wine you are considering ordering. Our staff person was friendly and warm, and service was impeccable.

                Food was better than expected, very flavorful and certainly using fresh ingredients. That said, most of the dishes incorporated many of the same elements so trying each others' wasn't as wide a range as a typical restaurant. I'm fine with that if we're getting fresh from the garden - it's what nature allows! Biggest challenge here is it's pretty pricey - granted we each had 2 drinks but shared an app and entree, landing $225 with tip. The entrees were huge so the 3c seems ambitious and glad we didn't, which would have landed us close to $300. Unique setting, different rooms and some private alcove-style booths if you have 6 could be fun. Would recommend if you have the dough.

                The beet and goat cheese salad was excellent. The wine pairing for this one, sub par. The lamb, again, excellent. The quail was over shadowed by the chorizo. Both desserts wonderful. The ambiance, pretty noisy. The music was busy and did not add to the delightful food and service.

                The food was some of the worst we have eaten in years. The overly ambitious and poorly executed eclectic ménage of flavors aside, the latkes were burnt and mushy, the overcooked lentils were swimming in kale and indistinctive soupy brown sauce, and the lamb was sheerly inedible. Tough, cooked fully with fat globs, the roulade was a solid small wheel and the mint and Indian inspired flavors could not cover the meat and were penetrant on the tongue. Deserts were fairly standard and ok. I had two because was hungry by that point - chocolate and cream heavy. The vegetables with the bland quail, also overcooked, were mushy. Way too much sauce, again, rendered the polenta swimming. The worst element was the quail. The skin was floppy and gray. The bird was stuffed with a mass and overall also inedible. So we remained pleased that our death by chocolate desert, the chocolate berry dish had brownies in a dark chocolate globe which we also did not eat. Interestingly, unlike many others here on OT, we enjoyed the atmosphere and the place albeit full did not feel overcrowded; we are relatively COVID conscious. As mentioned, the staff was very polite, courteous and a joy to speak with. All in all, bramble and Hare is in need of a competent chef.

                Fantastic farm-to-table cuisine, limited by creative menu that makes ordering so easy and delightful. Cocktails were very well executed, using small batch liquors, but the wine list is the real main show, perfectly paired to the menu of the season! Service was impeccable, our waiter David knew his foods and drinks very well and was able to answer all our questions. Would love to come back on our next trip to Boulder!! Well done!!

                Food was fantastic. Service was spotty. Our server was friendly but our drink order was forgotten then one drink arrived. The other cocktail didn’t arrive until we were almost done with the appetizer. Server said the drink would be comped. Okay, quick fix. Didn’t see our server until the end when the bill arrived we were still charged for the cocktail. All in all, it was a good dining experience and I would recommend it but the service could be a bit more attentive.

                We loved having our own nook and couch from which to people watch — and felt fortunate that we could see the artistry in the kitchen. Gotta love a place with a calm, casual atmosphere paired with delicious five star food. Our server, Mike, offered to have the chef sign the menu, which was awesome. Everything was cooked perfectly — the meat, the latkes, the greens, the vegetables. We would definitely go here again.

                Excellent service and we enjoyed learning more about our wine from the sommelier. My husband had the fish and I had the lamb, both were nicely prepared and very good. We hadn’t known before going that it was a set 3 course meal and we wouldn’t normally have had dessert but I had the flourless chocolate cake and it was delicious. Good value for 3 courses.

                Our server, David, made us feel welcome after a two-year absence and was very helpful and generous. His recommendations were spot-on. Happy Hour no longer exists so the listing on Open Table needs to be amended. Our dinner was wonderful, portions were generous, our dinner plates were full with a variety of vegetables to support the entree and everything was delicious! We’ll be back … soon!

                The food was quite delicious. But a great restaurant isn't only about the food, it encompasses many other elements. The ambience conducive to an excellent meal was sorely lacking. The tables for 2 were amazingly tiny and set jam packed cheek to jowls with many other larger tables in a relatively small area. The noise from the crowd was deafening. We ate half our entre, then took the rest in doggie bags, paid and left in a hurry. Attention to the pandemic that we all are still subject to was unaddressed.

                First experience with Bramble and Hare. Previous experience with Black Cat and was not disappointed. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. Food was excellent, if any complaint, portions were ample! Happily waddled out the door.

                This was a unique and delightful food experience. Be prepared to come hungry and have your taste buds bedazzled with fresh flavors, wonderful pairings and savory wines. ProTip: Ask for the PDR (Private David Room).

                Everything was perfect. We had a table opposite the kitchen, so we got to watch magic happen. Food was amazing with each item having its own flavor and complementing the rest of the dish. A Boulder MUST.
