I think I have been spoiled by the sunday brunch. The weekday ooo la la brunch was just ok. It was a good price at $16. For me I would love to see an extensive salad bar as part of this brunch. The desserts were manifique.

This is the go-to place for my Mom and I to have our "lady's who lunch" dates. All week they stage a wonderful, range of delicious lunch buffets, but our favorite day is Friday. There is a great variety of vegan food and desserts that are wonderful, refreshing, delicious dishes and salads and neither of us are vegans. We just love the food. We've been coming here for years, the atmosphere is so lovely and special with large windows, wood and creamy marble surrounds. The service has been great every time. Many fond memories here at Jill's and many more to be made.

Quiet in the restaurant. I think most folks were doing happy hour food and drinks in the lobby with couches and tables. Would have been good either way but a lot quieter inside the actual restaurant vs the lobby. Very kind and attentive service.

I organized a meeting on the CU campus, which included out of town guests. Several of the visitors and some locals had dinner together at Jill's. I have done this many times at many Boulder locations, and this was THE BEST experience. The food was outstanding, and the ambiance was perfect for adult conversation (my hearing is not the greatest). I will definitely be doing this again. Jill's is a real gem. AND, it snowed that evening, and the underground parking was a real plus.

My daughter and I went for the vegan Monday 5 course meal, as a special treat. We enjoyed the dinner very much (except we were not crazy about the mac and cheese or the apple cake dessert). One thing you should know is to allow PLENTY of time. It was 2 full hours from the time we arrived till the time we left and it didn't seem that busy. The portions aren't huge, because there were so many courses (we were plenty full), so it wasn't that it took us long to eat each one - it just seemed to take a LONG time to serve each one. Luckily, we were not in a rush. The food was very tasty. We were clear in the beginning that we both wanted gluten free food, but the croutons still arrived on the salads and we had to send the bread back and we had to wait extra long for the mac and cheese because, apparently, the kitchen had not prepared a GF mac and cheese ahead of time. I think that was all the waiter's mistake - it also took him till dessert to bring us our hot tea, which was ordered at the beginning of the meal. It was a lovely almosphere though, and the food was mostly tasty. Neither one of us drink wine, though, and I think it's a bit of a rip off that wine is part of the price. I don't know that I would go back for the Monday night vegan faire, but I enjoy the Friday vegan buffet several times a year and highly recommend that. Still a problem that wine is included in the price, but it's a buffet, so you can choose what you want (some very yummy dishes) and there is no waiting or confusion about what is GF.

My sister and I have been for lunch on her open day several times. They have a great lunch buffet and it's fun to spoil ourselves every so often. Two things - if you don't drink, there's no substitution for the glass of wine. Second, on this trip, our server was terrible. We still left a tip but didn't feel great about it. Also, this hasn't been our experience in the past. It wasn't as crowded and that's actually good because the food is pretty bunched and then moving around people and tables can be difficult (from the past). It's worth it to make a reservation because sometimes they're too busy for walk-ins.

I have sent several friends and they have liked the food. But several commented that they were offered red wine, but wanted white wine and were refused the option. I think the policy should be updated to include a complimentary glass of wine: red or white. Patrons are quite put off by being told "no", and it puts the staff in a tight spot.

Went for Sunday Brunch on New Year's Eve morning. They sat us right at 10am and all the food stations and staff were ready. Bottomless mimosas are a big selling point. Our first server could have been more attentive in the beginning with this, but the ending servers made up for it in the end. The food was great and the staff was knowledgeable about ingredients and allergy concerns. Great place to eat brunch with friends. We will definitely be back again!

My wife and I reserved Jill’s for our fifth anniversary and we were not disappointed. The wine list was ample, the menu diverse and interesting. Our service (Martha) was superior; she not only invested time regarding menu choices and options but took a keen interest in our food and wine requests. Her knowledge of pairing was solid and recommendations spot on. We will go back (and soon). We totally enjoyed the food and the experience.

Very disappointed Jill's no longer has the Thanksgiving dinner buffet. The prix fixe, 5-course meal and very pregnant pauses between courses were NOT worth $75 per person. Quality should have been great, and at the very least, the entrees should have been hot. Won't be back for prix fixe but may come back for the Thanksgiving lunch buffet.

Jill's used to be "fine dining," but they have made a dramatic change to enter the overcrowded Boulder bistro scene. In my opinion, this was a profound mistake and a great loss for the Boulder dining universe. Instead of quiet elegance, the restaurant now has raucous music and a plain setting without the tablecloths and crystal of old. The menu also has been "dumbed down" and no longer is centered around fine cuisine.

I no longer will frequent this restaurant. There are other bistros in Boulder that are as good as the current Jill's at a much more reasonable price.

We celebrated our birthdays and anniversary at Jill's and were not disappointed. Service was beyond our expectations from the moment we CALLED. Enzo was our server and every person on staff was professional, courteous, and warm. The menu leaves you knowing you have to come back because everything looks good! The wine selection is very good with a nice range of price options. We will definitely be returning to Jill's.

We visited Jill’s for First Bite Boulder. The food was delicious, choices adequate, and portions good for the fixed price event. Our main dissatisfaction was with the overly attentive waitstaff. They visited our table, asking if everyone was ok, with a frequency that was intrusive. Checking in is great but this became an irritant to the point where it discourages me to return to this restaurant.

Superb in every way, and vegan-friendly.

We had a spectacular meal while sticking to the vegan and vegetarian options. The walnut salad was one of the best salads ever. The entrees were delicious and inventive, as well as plentiful. Cauliflower risotto, pasta with garlic and tomatoes, coconut curry with tofu were all wonderful. The service was noteworthy for being gracious and attentive, never a false note. All in an elegant, beautiful and spacious setting.

What a pleasant surprise and total treat our evening here was! It was an all-vegan menu night, and the food was varied, tasty and beautifully presented. I questioned the vegan butter, and the server brought out the container to show me the ingredients.
We were offered a glass of complimentary wine with our pre-fixe menu, and the staff was gracious.
I already have plans to go back for Sunday brunch!

The service and food were outstanding..... however, the noise level was horrendous. The acoustics are quite bad. It was hard to hear our own conversation at our table - the noise level made it feel like we were eating in a sports bar (minus the televisions). The idea that the noise level is listed as "energetic" as a selection for the review doesn't seem accurate.... it made it so that I would have to think twice before I would eat at Jill's in the future.

We have 're-discovered' Jill's and have been back twice over the last month or so. The menu is really good (lobster carbonara and beet salads have been excellent), and for my 'escargot monster' daughter, this is now one of our Boulder regular haunts. The service is outstanding, and the ambiance is definitely more fun on weekend nights when bands are playing in the foyer. We normally do not like 'hotel restaurants' but we certainly will make an exception for Jill's!

Food is very good at the brunch with a fair amount of seafood. Excellent house smoked salmon and paella. Sweet rolls made into french toast a calorie taste treat. King crab legs were poorly stocked at the second sitting despite lower attendance. Deserts are also tasty. Busboys did well but not enough servers for drinks. Good value for the price if you like seafood.

Our Anniversary dining experience was awesome, we had the pleasure of the table side preparation on the Cesar Salad and Shrimp Scampi - it was excellent, and the preparer explained the processes and ingredients as he was preparing. It's becoming less common to have this experience, so I hope Jill's continues to offer it - as it's fun, and interesting to see all the great ingredients being used for the dishes, and the preparer enjoyed and delighted in serving it as well - making dining such a pleasure. The other main dish; Linguine Cippiono was excellent too. Our waiter was fantastic, and he always knew exactly when to check back and offered his suggestions as well. Thank you so much for the complimentary prosecco - we really enjoyed it!
