No response or a simple acknowledgment to special requests, If had known this wasn't an option, I would have made reservations elsewhere on Valentine's day, as the girlfriend had her heart set on a particular dessert.

Barring that minor detail, the food and service is great and would recommend choosing this restaurant for a wonderful dining experience.

The Filet Mignons were melt in your mouth and cooked perfectly. We also had a healthy portion of mussels that were fabulous with plenty to share. Our reservation was quite last minute and they were able to accommodate us and even recognize our special occasion. The Boulder Chop House is always a solid choice.

We went for Valentine’s Day. They had a special menu for the day. There were not a large amount of selections but all of them were quality. We enjoyed every course and the desert even came with a glass of champagne for each. The server was very attentive but not hovering or in anyway pushy. Overall the night was great experience and I would recommend it to any who enjoy classic quality night out with tremendous food.

We’ve been dining here for years and have never had a negative experience. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and professional - the wine recommendations are well thought out and they’ll provide tasters if you’re on the fence. The food is fabulous - tell them how you want it cooked and they will deliver.

This is a nice place for a personal or business meal. The food is good and they have a menu that should appease most tastes. Our waiter was a bit inattentive, but that is his fault and not the restaurant’s. I will go back the next time I’m in Boulder.

Have had decent meals there before and actually liked the place until my last visit. I will avoid the restaurant in the future due to one of the worst salads (tuna) I have ever eaten--actually couldn't eat. The tuna part was ok, but the salad was not interesting, chintzy ingredients, and bathed in an extremely salty dressing of unknown identity. Absolutely grotesque.

Our waiter was attentive and friendly. The food was excellent, cooked exactly as orders. Love their cocktails. The atmosphere was good though a little noisy where we were seated. Not the fault of the restaurant however so can’t blame them. Overall it was great food, great service, and a great experience. We will definitely return.

The service was great the food was good for 3 out of 4 people. The 3 all got the same dish. Mine was the queen prime rib. With bake potato. The prime rib was about 4 ounces out of 12 of fat. The bake potato was 3/4s done. I'm not a complainer. But since you ask.

Steak was over cooked, waiter was inconsistent and forgot drinks several times. Had to ask for bread (which is a staple). Took very long for waiter to arrive at the table. For a $300 meal we expected more professionalism.

Amazing service! Our waiter Dave was so friendly and attentive and made the experience wonderful! They started us with a complimentary skillet of jalapeño cornbread with honey butter. It was nice and warm and was the perfect way to start, with some comfort food. The French onion soup I ordered was very flavorful with a rich broth and the perfect amount of onions, bread and cheese. I also had the salmon and it was cooked perfect and was topped with a very tasty orange beurre blanc sauce, the perfect combination of flavors. My sister ordered the filet with an oscar finish and it was a winner. The filet was melt in your mouth tender and the bernaise with lump crab meat was rich and savory. The side of Cabernet mushrooms we ordered were perfect. I love mushrooms but I am picky when ordering them as a lot of restaurants I've been to cook them dry and are bland. This was absolutely not the case here. Juicy, glazed with sauce and a good portion, amazing! Cannot say enough about how relaxing and elegant the atmosphere was. Beautiful old style charm and Frank Sinatra playing in the background. We are so happy we choose to go here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to go right in the heart of downtown boulder!

Unfortunately, kitchen was very slow. Waitress dropped tray and had to recook a steak after waiting for 1 hour. Was just a comedy of errors for our 7yr olds bday. Been living in Boulder for 2 years and have never been there- probably wont go back.
