Sorry but you guys at Open Table need to update your information. Colterra had a big fire and has been closed now since mid-October and will be closed until repairs/rebuilding is complete. This will take until approximately Easter of 2018.

Our group went on a quiet night and enjoyed a leisurely paced meal and attentive service with a noise level that permitted easy conversation. Menu offers something for all diners and the food was prepared excellently. The wine list, however, is a bit pricey, with limited lower cost range.

We enjoy Colterra and have dined there several times over the past few years. We especially like their Ahi tuna entree This time however, the portions were smaller and it didn't have the sesame crust we've had in the past. Disappointing. The tuna is considered a small plate for $20/ In the past, we remember it being $23, large and encrusted with sesame seeds. Please bring back the Ahi with the sesame seeds! Otherwise, the salads are wonderful and the desserts are average to better. The ambiance is lovely and in the summer you can sit outside on their patio.

I and my guests thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Colterra. I hadn't eaten here for a while and tThe food was just as good as ever. My guests had the short ribs and I had the lamb T-bones. I will definitely return soon.

The food was excellent, even for a foodie town such as Boulder. It is out in Niwot about 20 mintues away. A nice charming place in the old part of town. Not manufactured.
I had the almond crusted Alaskan Halibut and it was fresh, light, and perfectly cooked. My ceasar with the option of anchovies was delicious. All of our items were exquisite except the diner who had the lamb that said it was good, but not great. Deserts were way too heavy on cream sauces for our taste, the French influence took over and it was either apply with cream sauces or some chocolate desert that was not described except for the multiple cream sauces. Service was good but not the level for the fine dining. All in all the food was top notch and I would go back, hopefully the deserts and meat items improve slightly.

We have always had a great experience at Colterra. It's a great place for a special occasion or when looking for a nice evening out. Food is always awesome and the service is great - attentive but not overbearing. We've recommended it to friends and will continue to return.

We have eaten at Colterra several times over the years. The meals were always outstanding until the other night. Two of us had the seafood risotto. The seafood was either previously frozen or over cooked and the risotto was like runny rice. One had the Bolognese and found it quite ordinary. And one had the lamb dish and was pleased. The warm beet salad and the warmed brie salads were better than the entrees.

We went on a date and I hate to give a mediocre review, but we were underwhelmed. The food was ok. I ordered the beet salad, and it was not good. They used pickled beets, the menu should have stated that instead of roasted (it was clear they were not roasted). The carpaccio had a serving of greens in the middle that appeared out of place. The server was ok, unfortunately he was making me uncomfortable because he was a "lurker"
We have always loved Colterra, however this may have been our last visit, as I would prefer to spend our money on better food and service
