Outstanding Sunday Brunch set in a charming and quaint atmosphere. Phil and the entire staff did an outstanding job hosting our group. We will be becoming new “regulars”. Greenbrier Inn is a true gem!

We had a great waiter John. He was very patient as I was confused about the wine list. We had a great choice of wine for our dinner. The between meal palate cleansers were a pleasant surprise.
The food was wonderful, the dessert exquisite (suggested by John) and our overall experience was superb. We were celebrating our anniversary so it was particularly wonderful.

Our extended family has gone to the Greenbriar Sunday brunch several times in recent years to celebrate our mom's birthday. The setting is always beautiful, the interior elegant and the food delicious. Adults and kids enjoy the Sunday brunch buffet in this lovely setting. We're lucky to have such a gem in our area!

One of the few truly elite dining venues in Boulder. Located at the entrance to Left Hand Canyon just north of Boulder, the Greenbriar's look and feel is that of a fine country inn. We have never had a disappointing visit here, with the laid back ambience, excellent service, attentive, professional and friendly, the fantastic food and the award-winning wine list. On this night we had a flavorful seafood pasta dish, and roast suckling pig. Obviously an expensive place, but you get far more than what you pay for.

The food was excellent as usual, but the crowed in the porch area was unpleasantly loud for our compromised hearing. I will request a different area in the future and avoid Denver restaurant week.

My wife and I, and another couple, dined at Greenbriar Inn during Denver Restaurant Week and enjoyed it very much. The deal was $35.00/person prix fixe, which was reasonable for the quality and wonderful ambiance afforded by the Greenbriar. The amuse-bouche was a tasty salmon concoction that everyone enjoyed. My wife and I started with onion soup, which she liked and I liked very much - a rich, flavorful broth that surpasses most of the other onion soups offered in Boulder. For our mains, my wife ordered the pork, which she liked, but didn't love, and I popped the extra $5.00 for the New York sirloin, which was excellent - perfectly grilled and complemented with delicious sides. For wine, we started with a good Albarino and followed with an excellent Rioja. Desert was unnecessary, but, since it was included in the price, we finished with the apple galette and Black Forest cake, both very good. As always, the host and wait staff at Greenbriar were excellent - friendly and attentive without being intrusive. And Greenbriar's ambiance is one of the best in Boulder for fine dining with friends, quiet enough to have a conversation and you never feel rushed to finish your meal.

The Greenbriar is a fine dining restaurant, hence, our expectations of the dining experience are accordingly high. We were here to celebrate a special birthday, and our visit coincided with the Denver Restaurant week. The place does have a special ambiance, and the service we received was top notch. We chose to have the specials offered under the Denver Restaurant week menu. My soup and suckling pig were excellent. Both the appetizer and the main course chosen by my wife proved to be overly salty (we share tastes of each other's meals). The apple desert was again excellent. Overall, a very enjoyable evening.

We did the Restaurant Week deal. Food and service and ambiance was very good. My wife (not a big eater) thought the size of her steak was on the small side. The pork was very good, except not sure if the sausage was mentioned on the menu?

First off, I wanted to say the waiting staff was excellent. We were seated quickly and our waitress was polite and attentive throughout the entire dinner. The atmosphere was calm and relaxing with an overall romantic touch to the air.

The food was hit or miss. Some of the dishes were over salted. In particularly the French onion soup and veggie tarts. The other dishes that were not over salted tasted pretty good (my steak was superb). With that in mind, it would be hard for me to willingly come back and pay full price for those meals (we were dining from the Denver Restaurant Week menu) given the inconsistencies with seasoning.

My wife and I have dined at the Greenbriar Inn's Sunday Brunch several times during the past few years. The quality of the food offerings has declined steadily over that period of time. The ambiance and the service are both outstanding. The quality of the food served during this visit was very disappointing. We are not likely to visit the Greenbriar Inn again.

It was a great four-hour, leisurely brunch. We were so fortunate for it to be a quiet day where our table wasn't needed for the next guest. The food was delicious and the service - both Cindy and Brianna - were lovely.
The only thing that marred our morning was one of the guests who was eating alone, who had her speaker turned on when she was talking on her cell phone. The whole dining room had to listen to her conversation.

My husband and I went to the Greenbriar for our Valentine's Day celebration on February 16th. We used to go for special occasion dinners frequently when we first moved to Colorado, and then got out of the habit when we discovered a couple of other "go to" places in Fort Collins (where we live) and Denver. However, we were in the mood for Beef Wellington, one of our favorite dishes, and knew the Greenbriar had it on their menu. It was as good as we remembered and better! We have rediscovered the Greenbriar Inn and plan to back as often as we can when we're looking for a fine dining experience in a romantic and beautiful setting. It's not inexpensive, but it is well worth the wonderfully prepared food and all that comes with it.

Feb 14th is probably one of the busiest nights? Seems like they would have been better prepared. Only one bartender and staff seemed stressed. Waiter was all about just getting through the night. Never introduced himself and was very was short. The food was very good however, so it made up for the short comings.
