Excellent food, outstanding service and wonderful view. It was a special evening and even on New Year's eve it met and exceeded our expectations. This restaurant may be expensive but it is worth it and they go above and beyond to make you feel valued and to meet your needs.

Went here for my 20th anniversary. I have been to a lot of nice restaurants in Denver and the Flagstaff was the best restaurant I have been too. Well worth the price of the food. Everything was amazing. From the wait staff to the food. I had a wonderful time there with my husband.

I would love to write an unequivocal positive review for the historically good Flagstaff House, but my wife and my anniversary meal was tarnished by noisy heat radiators in the lower patio room. I can not recommend the room on a cold evening. It was a bit like listening to unused frequencies on an AM radio.

The food was excellent and the service well done*. The beautiful night time view to the lights of Boulder was also nice. However, at the price of fine dining, I can not say that it is acceptable to have a radiator heater buzzing so loudly over our heads in dissonance with the back ground music to destroy the restaurant ambience. *Staff looked at the heaters, but acted relatively helpless to solve the problem at an adjacent table, nor offer any form of compensation for the distraction. A bit disappointed .....

For the money, and for the area, this restaurant holds on due to setting, but it is a bit full of itself, and guests can feel it, palpable in the air and in the presentation. After dropping several hundred dollars, it all feels rather silly.

Though the food was good, this meal took over 2 hours. One of our guest's drink was forgotten about, and the entrees took about an hour to arrive. When asked about the delay, the waiter simply pointed out that one of the dishes was taking longer than others, causing one in our party to apologize for holding up everyone's food. Though our waiter acknowledged that we had been sitting for quite some time, he made no attempt to make it right. Honestly for a restaurant of such quality, I would have expected them to at least cover our drinks or offer a free dessert. We ended up skipping dessert just because we didn't want to wait another hour for the food. What was more frustrating was that it was moderately busy, with many staff members milling about, yet somehow our party felt ignored and like our service was less than. I will not be returning to Flagstaff House and will look for other fine dining establishments to celebrate special occasions, as the food was not good enough to warrant the poor service.

Flagstaff House has long been on our bucket list of a special time to celebrate. At age 82, celebrating our 32nd Anniversary, this was the perfect time! Lights gleamed from Boulder, truly a fairyland of sparkling twinkles! We were treated like celebrities! The whole time was just awesome. The meal and the service made it a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious experience! Thanks to an excellent server, Chris!

My wife and I really enjoyed our experience at the Flagstaff House for our anniversary. The atmosphere was wonderful, and the food and service was great. We had a beautiful view of the lights in Boulder, and we had a very romantic evening. I would highly recommend the Flagstaff House for a special occasion, or just a nice night out with family or friends.

Staff is extremely well trained and very pleasant (10 Stars!). Trying too hard with the menu complexity. Somewhat over priced. If it weren’t for the real estate location this restaurant might struggle to attract repeat customers.

Flagstaff House is definitely as fine as the dining gets within Boulder County. If you're looking for the best of the best, most special place to take someone for a special occasion then you have found it. This would definitely be considered less of a meal and more of an experience. Highly recommend if it's within your price range.

Enjoyed the experience; however, was not prepared for a gentleman literally snorting cocaine at the table next to us. Seems he and his friend received a lot of positive attention from the maitre de, so must have been a good customer!

In a few words - just perfect. We were celebrating a college graduation and a birthday and this was a GREAT choice. Yes, it is expensive. But that's what makes it a Special Occasion choice. The entire staff was very professional, and every food choices excellent.

The other wonderful thing about the Flagstaff House is that the staff spoils you. Our server, Elizabeth, was excellent. Answered all our questions and was always looking over to see if we needed something. The chef combines amazing foods that taste real, not too out-there! The manager, Adam, adds the finishing touch of service, so that you leave the restaurant - happy, pleasantly full, and spoiled!!

Food was great, service was painfully slow, several failed attempts to flag down our waitress were frustrating. We ended up quite late getting home to our sitter. Also, despite saying on the reservation that it was our anniversary there was no comment about it during service. I would have been ok with that if I had not seen another table receive a happy anniversary message on their table. Disappointed with our first dinner at Flagstaff. Will likely stick to just a cocktail with a nice view from now on.

This was an epic meal. The food was phenomenal and the views are outstanding. The service also was fantastic. My only complaint for the sommeliers. They were Rush and in all honesty very knowledge base for the wine cellar they have there was very disappointing. That being said I would go back in heartbeat

They offer flat rate pricing on their website, when you get there there are up charges for everything so instead of 88 it’s more like 160 per person
