Our server, Steven, was SUPER! He was patient, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Very welcoming.
All of our food was WONDERFULLY tasteful and cooked perfectly.
We also really enjoyed the sample dishes that the chef sent out periodically.

It was our 45th wedding anniversary, and the manager (?) comped our desserts as a gift!
All in all, a PERFECT night. Thank you!

My fiancée and I are looking at wedding venues so wanted to try out the restaurant for the food. We were so pleased with the quality of service and the dishes we ordered were amazing! So delicious!! Beef Wellington and Pan Seared Trout - just excellent! Can’t wait to return and we may have found our wedding venue.

I have brought my family to the GB many times for the brunch, and was surprised this time at the increased price. Over $300.00 for breakfast is too steep for me, so won't be coming back. We were looking forward to the oyster bar but found they had a bad taste. It took over 20 minutes to get coffee and champagne and because one person had to leave at 11:30 for work, this also affected our experience.

I was a little disappointed because we asked for a corner table and did not get one, even though the restaurant wasn’t super busy and they could have accommodated us. I also mentioned that we were celebrating birthdays and this wasn’t addressed.

New Years Eve Dinner 5 course, fine dining!
Food was excellent, service impeccable, fixed price a little high but included a $15 credit per person for drinks.

Can’t wait to go back for their regular menu, next special occasion.

A Boulder standout for over 50 years!

The ambience was nice for a special occasion and quiet conversation, the staff was attentive and polite, but the fish was bland and no additional flavor imparted by the sauce. I had also originally ordered a pasta dish, which was out even though we had an early dinner (6:30pm) and there were few quests.

This was for my wife's birthday to celebrate with friends, and none of us were pleased, much less impressed with our meals.

All of the meals we ordered were excellent tasting. Desserts were good too. Only complaint is about the bread. Basket came with tasteless white bread rolls. Additionally, there were some other type of bread which was tastier, but the rolls were awful.

Pathetic Christmas Eve Buffet. There were no plates available on buffet tables. Didn't matter though as they ran out of food. We had to wait for both. I was extremely disappointed and the price was ridiculous for the food offered...when it was finally available. We have been to the Greenbriar many times over the years. Looking for a new venue.

We dined at the Greenbriar on Christmas Eve. This year, they served a buffet dinner. The atmosphere was lovely. Beautifully decorated and we had a table next to the windows where we could see the white lights in the trees illuminating the newly fallen snow which made for a very festive setting. The food was OK, some items better than others, but there wasn't much of a selection. No poultry dishes of any kind and the caesar salad was tasteless. The carved to order tenderloin was good, but if you didn't want your meat rare you didn't have any other choice of doneness. The deserts were very tasty. The buffet was slow to be refilled and we heard several patrons remark on this. Our waiter didn't engage us in any way. In fact, another member of the waitstaff came over to us after we were seated and had been waiting for quite some time. After we were finished with our entrees our waiter asked if we wanted our check. No thought to asking if we wanted coffee or if we might be having desert. All in all, it was still a pleasant way to spend Christmas Eve, but we did expect a little bit better selection of food and better service based on the reputation of the restaurant.

We were not notified that the Christmas Eve dinner was a buffet, and it was NOT a good experience. At a cost of $65 per person, we were given very small helpings of meat in the buffet line. Appetizers was a separate line and the desert line was another separate line, which means three trips in separate lines to get a complete dinner. Having an elderly person with us made the evening so much more difficult.

Normally the Greenbrier Inn is a very enjoyable experience, but we will not return to the restaurant whenever they are having a buffet. The Boulder Cork restaurant is a far better value with a wonderful menu and service.

We had a 1:15PM seating on Christmas Eve. Wait staff were great considering it was busy. Ambience was warm and inviting. Food was good - not great - but not a huge amount of choices and it was picked over and not properly replaced. If you go - get an earlier reservation time.

Went for Christmas Eve brunch - such a beautifully decorated restaurant. We sat upstairs and it was very festive and pretty. We had, however, a very unfriendly , curt waiter. He was not cheerful at all- was annoyed when we asked for catsup and then was annoyed when I had to ask a second time for some hot tea. Being that it was Christmas Eve one would have thought he would have been interested where we were from or engaged with us a little more. The prime rib was cold and the staff was slow to refill the bacon. The chocolate tart was stale and again , slow to refill the desserts as well. The waiter overheard me ask my husband when the bill came , if tip was included and my daughter said as he was walking away he made a face at me. Very disappointing service and it made me not ever want to return.

Lots of people since it was xmas eve but the noise level was acceptable, even low. Plenty of choices for food that were well stocked at all times. Would like to have seen the omelet area better positioned and an option for just regular eggs and maybe a juice area. Would LOVE to see a NO CELLPHONE zone- hard to enjoy conversations when people next to you are continuously poking on lit up devices that make popping sounds. Just ban them for the enjoyment of others - you can go an hour without it.

Sadly the quality of the food this time not very good. We have been here three other occasions and it was always five star. But this time the reg Eggs Benedict muffins were burnt and not edible. The vegetarian version had some red tomato and onion something I don’t know what but it was terrible. Belgian waffles were hard just very overcooked. Bacon was all stuck together in a big mass. Bread pudding was so horrible and so was the sauce. Tiramisu tasted like sour cream. The pickled herring was good but I’m sure that was purchased and not made there. As was the cheese platter. Unfortunately because of this experience we will definitely not be back again.
And if it were just a little bit bad I might not of even filled out this review. But it was very bad.

Never again. No idea why this place is so famous for it's brunch. It was like they'd never done it before. When we arrived people were threatening to leave because they were so late seating reservations. First pass at the buffet, no: shrimp, eggs Benedict, waffles, quiche and a decimated dessert selection. When the quiche was finally replaced, they had simply put a new pastry crust over what had been served elsewhere. What was left in the chaffing dishes had been on the heat too long and was over cooked. In the hour and a half that we were there, precious little was added to the buffet and the over-held food was not removed. The serving utensils that were caked with cold food constituting further health risks. It was difficult to get a refill from the wait staff. The most contact we had with our waiter was when he ran into me at the buffet and later careened into our table. Truly a disappointing and frustrating experience that was meant to celebrate an anniversary.
