We didn't wait to be seated, but once seated it was a long wait until the waitress came. She took our drink order & appetizers. After a long while our appetizer arrived, still no drinks. We asked the food server to check on drinks. Apparently, the bartender was having difficulty making one of the signature cocktails on the menu, which was holding up all our drinks. We suggested cancelling it for a beer. Then entrees arrived. Food was good, but we were disappointed with the overly long wait and the fact that they couldn't figure out their own drinks. Don't order cocktails!

I haven’t had a burger this good in a long time. I highly recommend the steak burger. The burger was tasty, juicy and delicious! The fries were perfectly crisp. My party ordered the steak and fries, and the tomato soup and sandwich. We ate every delicious bite. We will definitely return.

The Corner Bar has been our favorite place for an afternoon snack and people-watching. We made our first visit back after more than a year of pandemic-imposed isolation at home. And it was as good as ever, or even better. There was live music but not too loud so we could still talk. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. Food was terrific as we remember it was. We're glad we went back and will back soon.
Highly recommend reserving an outside table.

Nothing special, we had the trout and the rueben. Trout was good, the rueben over cooked and dry. Not much flavor. Would have sent it back if I had time.

It's great to be able to reserve an outdoor table these days during the pandemic. Our server took our orders right away and we enjoyed the roasted sweet and hot Brussels sprouts and cauliflower, and lightly breaded, soft calamari. My trout was ample and perfectly cooked and the accompanying grilled asparagus were tasty. My friends enjoyed the Ban Mi sandwich, special pork sliders and chicken salad. They also liked their margaritas, saying it was more flavorful than similar versions at other restaurants. I liked my mule - refreshing and cold in a tin cup. We skipped the heavy-sounding desserts.

Great experience. We were seated outside and a downpour drove everyone inside. Staff hustled to find space for all seamlessly. Waiter, Ian, was very helpful. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Will definitely return.

This was our first dining experience here; we came with our adult son and a family friend. It was easy to make reservations through Open Table, but I had noted that we were celebrating a birthday, and this is the first restaurant not to acknowledge this in
any way. I was a little disappointed, though I did not say anything to the wait staff.

The food was very good, and we were seated outside as requested. Unfortunately, our service was quite lacking. It took about 20 minutes to get our drinks, and our appetizer came with our meal as opposed to prior to the meal as expected. We had to request 2 more sets of silverware and napkins, and there was no serving utensil for the app, so we had to ask the water person for something. The waiter never came to check on us once we were served. We gave him the benefit of the doubt and left a good tip as we didn't know if he was new or there was some other circumstance that affected our meal, but that part of our meal was less than ideal.

I had to ask several times for service although we had a reservation. I believe the restaurant was short staffed, thus the wait for service but after that was sorted out then it was a great experience.

My daughter and I had dinner on trip to visit colleges. Service was fine, food was excellent, as was a cocktail I ordered. The atmosphere was good, but the noise level was so loud we couldn't even have a conversation, and this was a 6 PM reservation. Noise level is not usually an issue for us as a busy restaurant is a good thing. The original plan was to sit outside and weather did not cooperate, and it may have been better from a noise perspective if we had been able to sit outside.

A classic Boulder watering hole. Sat outside with our dog and had the best time. Food can be good like the ruby trout I had. But not the Calamari. Overall there is plenty on the menu to find something that will make you happy. This is a see and be seen spot so focus on the crowd and the strollers on the side walk. Wait staff superb.

The server never put our order in… this was finally remedied by Michael,/but then a female manager stood at the table next to,us and complained about how terrible things are for their restaurant for A good 20 minutes.very unprofessional. This restaurant is a favorite of all of Boulder.. what a shame. Three tables around us also had service issues. Once my trout came….it was delicious.

Great place. I had the Ole salad it was delicious. Fresh cilantro, corn trimmed from the cob, grilled chicken, etc. I ordered without the beans and that’s the way it came. Hubby had a bowl of clam chowder that was thick & tasty. Our grandson had a burger that came cooked just right. He also liked the cheesecake he had for dessert.
