The Greenbriar Inn does the best buffet brunch in town. The restaurant and staff are very welcoming. It's tucked under the Boulder foothills in an older, charming building. The food is high quality and plentiful. There are three serving tables: salads, hot, and dessert. The hot table has a wonderful array that includes waffles, blintzes, salmon, turkey, beef, quiche, and much more. But, make sure you leave room to taste some of the yummy desserts, such as bread pudding, mousse, cheesecake, chocolates, brownies, etc. And to increase your dining pleasure, consider adding the bottomless champagne. Cheers!

Food was interesting and well prepared; top notch sauces. Staff was professional and helpful. Old style European décor is tasteful. it is a trek from Boulder but worth it especially for a special occasion.

We heard good things about the Greenbriar Inn. We thought food was good but food over priced. We sat next to loud group. The server was almost as loud as the guest and she did not seem to know about the menu.

First time here and all I can say was outstanding. Our server was extra ordinary prepping both the Caesar salads for our starter and for dessert banana’s foster. Both my wife and our main entree was delightful.

This is one of those unwise out of the way places you find that I will definitely be coming back.

Valentines. In time for reservation but waited 10 minutes to get seats with open tables. Another 10 minutes for first contact with server. After that everything was very good.

Wonderful Valentine menu, lots of thought to detail like the macaroons in a small gift box to take home.

Although located north of Boulder, on the way to Lyons, Greenbriar is always worth the drive. It is an upscale country inn, serving gourmet fare, but maintaining a casual atmosphere. One would be as comfortable here in dressy attire as in more everyday casual clothes. The service is always exceptional--professional but very friendly and helpful. In our opinion Greenbriar is one of Boulder's best. Go for broke, with table-side preparation of either Caesar salad (best in Boulder) or Beef Tartare as well as table-side flaming bananas Foster. This being Valentine's Day, the menu was pre-fixe, so more limited, but still worth the visit. The wine list is endless. We always leave with regrets for not having been here sooner and more often. We'll work on that.

Superb, totally recommend this restaurant. From the waiter, the manager and the chefs, made my pallet dance and an evening that will never forget.

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!
