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.

We visited Greenbrier for our 2nd time - both for college graduation celebrations. Service and most food was good. The halibut special, however , was completely overcooked to the point where it was not worth eating. This special was expensive -$42. I alerted the server and it was clear from the not eaten portion on the plate that the dish was not acceptable. No apology, no bill adjustment- nothing. For such an expensive special, this was not acceptable in my view. I will not return to the restaurant.

Lovely food, exceptional service, glorious location, well-appointed room where good conversation is possible because the room itself isn't noisy and dampens noise. Loud places do not encourage conversation or intimacy, only headaches. The Greenbriar encourages romance and companionship.

This is not the 1st time we have visited the Greenbriar nor will it be the last. This is an excellent restaurant with great ambiance (especially Spring & Summer); a great menu and excellent service from the manager down to the bussers. Brunches, while expensive, are much fun and good food. But we also enjoy lunch & dinner there. Hope it lasts for 100 years!

I had a $200 gift certificate from my realtor in Fort Collins for the Greenbrier. My partner’s birthday was yesterday, my daughter and her husband drove up from Denver, and we had a lovely time. The grounds are so beautiful, the food is very good and delicious, the wait staff is excellent. Thank you.

we had a great birthday brunch. The food was excellent, noise level appropriate and overall experience. The was very attentive and there were plenty of options to meet everyone needs. Two people in our group did the champagne brunch and there glasses were always filled. they also had sparkling apple juice for those not drinking which was a very nice touch for our kids.

The only complaint was they did not cups for kids, luckily I had a few stashed in the car.

I don't think a great chef has to be avant-garde. Quality food, beautiful presentation and superior service makes a meal special. Disappointing not to have at least one lamb choice.

We have been dining at the Greenbriar for more than 40 years and sadly this time we were disappointed. The food was just not up to their usual standards - actually not even close. We hope it was just an off night and will certainly try again. We understand there is a new chef - and sincerely hope he improves.

My sweetheart took me along with 4 others to Greenbriar for my birthday.
Everything was outstanding, including the martinis that some of our friends ordered for a pre-dinner drink. I asked for black napkins and they did have them - always a sign of a more up-scale restaurant for me!
Beef Wellington was a standout, as was the Oxtail Tagliatelle, Filet & Chicken prepared 3 ways. Four of us enjoyed the Caesar salad that was prepared table side.
For dessert I was offered a free one, and chose the Bananas Foster, which was also prepared table side. My only criticism would be too much brown sugar and too little rum.

It is always a treat to have Sunday Brunch at the Greenbriar. We were there for my mom's 84th birthday. I called ahead because she loves Lemon Meringue Pie and I wanted to bring one or ask if they could make one that I could purchase. The Greenbriar staff made the pie and it was fantastic and it made my sweet mom so happy! The service was excellent and we will look forward to celebrating other special occasions at the Greenbriar!

Began with a bowl of Pear Apple Soup which was very beautifully presented and was amazing, both flavour and texture. The baguette bread I had was very hard; I ended up with the last bread of the day and it had dried into a brick. The pecan bread was very good on the other hand. For my entree, I selected the NY strip w/ greens and celery root. Steak was cooked to temp but was a bit tougher cut than I expected and there was a rather large gristle and fat piece left on it. Good flavour. The greens and celery root did not complement the meal for my taste. I didn't think they were matched well. For dessert, I chose the panna cota. Very nice presentation and wonderful delicate flavours. And the Server was Briana who was absolutely OUTSTANDING!! She was prompt, pleasant, knowledgeable, friendly, patient and everything else you'd expect and many others you don't expect.

We went for Denver Restaurant Week, and I will definitely be returning. Our meal started with a liver pate and crustini that was very good. I had oysters that were delicious and they were served with a cucumber granita that was great. My wife had the pear soup with blue cheese - this was incredible - we may try to recreate it at home, although I fear we will fall short. My main course was the ricotta gnocchi that was the best I have ever tasted. It was light and delicious and I had to fight my wife off because she tasted it and kept coming back for more. The desserts were very good, especially the Panna Cotta. The only downside to the entire evening was my wife's main course, linguini and clam sauce - The pasta was a bit thick (but it is house made on the premises), which we could forgive, but where was the garlic? It definitely needed more garlic for our tastes, and they also used a bit too much lemon. We will definitely return for the great service, ambiance, and good food, I think we will probably both have the gnocchi - it was that good!
