Greenbriar Inn, The
Annual girl's brunch in the garden just seems to get better and better with each passing year! Brunch buffet never ever disappoints, service is exceptional. We are already planning in next year!
Dined Saturday eve 8/11. As we entered the patio, the maitre d' approached us as if to interrogate my wife and I.
Us: provided last name
He then turned, without sharing a word and began clearing a table to which he ultimately directed us.
Seriously, 3 word greeting?! Rude. He couldn't spare any more to help us feel welcome? Throughout the evening, as we dined, he marched around with a stern, angry expression. I think he missed his calling... perhaps, drill sergeant.
Our waiter, "D", by contrast, was excellent. Polite, knowledgable and gracious.
The food is evocative with intriguing sides and lovely presentations. The diver scallops were excellent and my guest was quite happy with her beef wellington. The service was pleasant but not as rapid or attentive as would have been expected.
We had a great dinner here. Our server Andrew made the best Caesar salad tableside. My husband was very impressed with the wine selection. All staff were very friendly. Met the owner at the end of the evening. Lovely spot. Sat outside. Only negative was some traffic noise but that won’t keep me from returning. Highly recommend.
We sat outside with a group of friends celebrating anniversaries. We all ended up ordering off the bar menu and the food was great. The service was friendly and knowledgeable. Great location and outside seating a plus on a nice summer evening!
We went for Sunday brunch to celebrate a friends' birthday and it was very nice. They rotate everything out within minutes and the chef at the carving station answered in-depth a question that I had for him and while he was making an omelet for me which was very good.
Thanks for amazing time and very cozying and romantic! We will come again! Special Thanks to waitress- so elegant!
We were married here years ago and wanted to come back to celebrate an anniversary. Service is always fantastic. Food is the best and the night was perfect.
Would have rated “ food” higher if it was warmer. Need to fix the transition strip between main room and sunroom/patio. Dangeress for elderly
Food trays were empty at 1130 brunch. Food was warm. Waiters good.
Fantastic every time!!! We highly recommend the Beef Wellington!
Went for Sunday brunch on this trip. The food, ambience, and service were outstanding, as always. The kitchen always has a few surprises, and gnocchi were among the best I've had, including in Italy. This is one of Colorado's great dining experiences.
Food was very good. Really enjoyed the excellent service by Samantha.
My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary. I'd been maybe 15 years ago as a kid but hadn't had it since. I really wanted to try Beef Wellington because I've never had it and they're one of the only restaurants who serve It in my area. The host was extremely friendly when we entered and I enjoyed talking to him. Service and food was amazing! My boyfriend got the steak frites, whatever they do to pepper Crust the steak (it seemed like a lime flavor?) was phenomenal! My beef Wellington was cooked perfect and it was juicy and delicious! The only strange thing was that the girl coming around filling waters came up to our table with an amuse bouche and said "compliments of the chef" I said thank you and before she set it down she said, "oh this isn't for you, sorry" and walked away. That was strange. She also brought a basket of bread after we had paid our bill. Don't know many places that give you bread after you've eaten and paid
Great for a splurge or special occasion. Wonderful setting and tasty food. Love the farm to table aspect.
Food was ok. Nothing to write home about
Service & ambiance were quite nice
Very enjoyable experience! Recommended. OK even for a vegetarian.
This was a much better experience than the last few times. A new chef and pastry chef were hired in the past and the quality of the food dropped, thus our hesitation to visit. But, this time all the food was delicious. PLEASE bring back the pate with bearnnaise sauce. This has been sorely missed.
Lots of variety, but would like to see larger deserts, like cake slices, or pie slices, or ice cream. Would like to see mashed potatoes, or yams.
We were a party of 6 - excellent in every way - Food, Service, drinks , relaxed and friendly, professional and lovely!
.We love Greenbriar in the summer. Outdoor dining at its finest. Trees and bushes shield from 36. Beautiful setting. Foie gras and oysters for starters. Sauternes to go with the foie gras, which was perfectly prepared. Scallops for me duck breast for my wife. Nice Spanish white for the scallops and a pinot noir for the duck. Rhubarb and strawberry galette for dessert. Perfect evening.
The food was impeccably good. I had the duck breast entree and my wife had the beef wellington, along with artichoke soup and creme brulee. Everything was top notch quality. Nice ambiance and scenery and good, knowledgeable waiter. The only thing even remotely negative was that they really need to dust the blinds.
I took my 86 year old father for Sunday Brunch on Father's day. They were good about calling in advance to find out if stairs would be a problem (they are) and found us a seat on the main floor.
We arrived towards the end of their brunch seating times, perhaps this was an issue. This was a buffet, and many of the dishes were nearly empty in their trays and the food in them seemed overheated and dry. The prime rib and turkey slices were pretty good, as were the desserts. The rest not so much.
Service was marginal. We were seated in a back corner, and it took 15 minutes or so initially for someone to come over with water, etc. (we finally gave up and just went to the buffet). Since it was a buffet, the person "serving" was really there to clear plates and answer questions, she seemed pre-occupied with the two larger tables next to us (one of which she clearly had regulars). We had to flag people down for salt and pepper, etc.
Perhaps it was the table, but it was also quite loud. Besides all the conversation from both tables around us, a speaker in the ceiling directly above us was playing music. Many times my father had to "lean in" to hear what I was saying.
It is a very pretty place, and the grounds are very nice as well. People were very friendly. Nice bar where my dad was waiting for me before I arrived, watching the U.S. Open.
I've had one other dinner at the Greenbriar Inn in the past year or so, it was also not bad, but not great. There are too many fabulous places in and around Boulder where I have had a better experience (particularly at this price point).
The food and service are always excellent. The Sunday brunch features an incredible assortment of delicious dishes.
Great restaurant for special occasions. The staff are very attentive, brunch and the food is exceptional.
Sunday brunch is decadent and delightful. Start with cocktails, classics like mimosa or a bloody mary, a more specialized one (I liked the bubbly with elderflower), or a latte. The buffet is sumptuous. A cold bar of raw oysters, shrimp, cheeses, fresh fruit, various salads. Yogurt and granola, bagels and lox. Multiple hot entrees, traditional items like waffles and pancakes with berry compote, bacon, scrambled eggs, creme cheese blintzes with strawberry (one of our favorites) as well as gnocchi, fantastic seasoned hot salmon, eggs Benedict, and a carving station of ham, turkey, beef. Every kind of dessert in small bites or slivers, such as rich creme brûlée (my favorite), chocolate dipped strawberries, lemon tart, pumpkin pie, whipped creme, flourless chocolate cake, raspberry moose. The only tiny improvement I can suggest would be the bread rolls which we found dry and tasteless. Service is attentive and friendly. Setting is lovely, whether outdoors on the patio in a vibrant garden under an umbrella or inside with its traditional wood warm paneling.
Took my husband there for Father’s Day Brunch. It has become his favorite place for a special occasion. Isabelle, our waitress was very attentive. The food was great! Look forward to returning for dinner soon
The quality of the entree was not up to the standard we have experienced before at this restaurant. Hopefully this was an aberation.
Fantastic meal & wine selection. Colorado fillet was extraordinary, scallops good, wine pairing spectacular, & flourless chocolate cake amazing!
Food was excellent as well as the service. We ate on the patio in the evening and did have some trouble with mosquitoes. A citronella candle was provided for the table but not until almost the end of the meal. The seating on the patio is not very comfortable but the surroundings are nice and except for the two things it was a lovely evening.
Beef Wellington was great, I do recommend the Ceaser Salad for two also. Thank you!
Our special place for all occasions, one of the best restaurants in Colorado, great staff and excellent food.
Food is flavorful and service outstanding. Expensive meal, but worth it.
We attended a graduation party here and were so impressed with the salmon meal that we decided to come back on the following Wednesday to celebrate our anniversary. Good choice! The Beef Wellington was spectacular and the wine they picked for us was a perfect (and reasonably priced) compliment to the meal. The atmosphere on the porch was lively but also romantic. The service was exceptional! The meal was pricey but worth it for a special occasion. Finish off with the house made limoncello. You won’t regret it!
The Greenbriar has become one of our favorite places to go for a special occasion. The food is always amazing, but the service makes for an unforgettable experience. The wine cellar has turned up some gems that have brought my father (who is from France) so much joy. I highly recommend the Greenbriar.
I had been a long time fan of this restaurant since the 80's, when we would come for holidays and special events. And then when I got engaged several years ago, I knew I wanted my wedding to be here. It is the perfect place for a wedding!!!!!
And we go back every year on our anniversary, which is also perfect.
Went for our 35th anniversary and we treated royally. From the opener and cocktails to the staff made us feel very special. The food and presentation were excellent, and the ambiance is wonderful. We've been here before and will return again. Highly recommend to anyone.
We decided to give it another try (after years) for Mother's Day and were shaking our heads with our surprise at how bad it could be. It's one of those places that SHOULD be amazing, but simply does nothing to keep up with modern cuisine (or deliciousness). At the same time, we get a kick out of the old fashioned ambience. Service was mixed.
Wonderful Mother’s Day brunch. Special surroundings to celebrate an occasion. Foods was varied and delicious, excellent attentive service and pretty gardens (not withstanding the rainy day)
