Super great experience. Personalized service. Every course and every bite was fantastic. The view is sick. I felt terrible for the staff and owners because this past Thursday night was the last night of service because of covid code red. Especially when there is no financial help at this time for restaurants. Definitely going back when they reopen.

It had been 30 years since I last ate at Flagstaff House but we just moved to Boulder and thought we would celebrate a birthday there. Everything about the experience was top notch: food, views, presentation, service, ambiance. Expectations were fully met. Prices are reflective of what you get, which in this case is your money’s worth.

An amazing, special, and very thoughtful experience from this wonderful restaurant. Right from the valet knowing who we were when we pulled up to the customized printed menus for our honeymoon, and the gifts along the meal...everything was perfect for our last night in Boulder! The extra special touch on the end with the pumpkin bread to go home for breakfast the next day was just a fantastic topper to an already outstanding hospitality experience. Thank you so much for everything!

It was my first time up there in a very long time! Thanks to Paul at BLDRfly for the review which inspired me to go up for a birthday with my beloved. It was such a total delight! The food was extraordinary; the service was exemplary; and the ambiance is unlike anywhere in the county. Thank-you to all who make an experience like that sing; and may you navigate through these strange times and continue to flourish!!

From the moment you are greeted by the Valet, the experience at Flagstaff House is impeccable. The views are outstanding, and the food is other worldly. We celebrated our 18th anniversary here and I have to truly say it was top 10 one of the best meals I've had in my life. Thank you Flagstaff House!

The BEST 4-star dining in the region. They have been bringing their culinary game since 1974, and it is still an impeccable experience after all these years.

For a special occasion, there isn't anywhere better. If you are looking for quantity of food (especially if you have boys who eat a lot) the 4 course meal won't fill them. But the quality of the food and the experience is amazing and worth every dime. So easy to get to with an amazing view.

We had our anniversary dinner postponed three times due to having been evacuated by a forest fire. We had a wonderful time & the service, ambience & food were excellent as usual. Social distancing & masks seemed to be properly enforced.

Hospitality, overall was good. It was my wife’s and my anniversary, which they did a nice job of celebrating with custom menus and few little extra bites. The waitress was nice and was attentive and spoke to each dish as it came out. With that though, I was not happy with where they sat us. We were in a corner by an emergency exit. Though by the windows, there really isn’t a view when it’s dark with the reflection in the inside of the windows. When we were leaving, there was no one to be found to retrieve our checked coats. We ended up going into the coat closet ourselves to get our coats.

The food was fair. Flavors were fine but not particularly layered or complex. There was much to be desired. The physical plates were distracting for some dishes too. The colors were a bit odd and the textures of them weren’t compatible with the food on them. A wavy/bubbly plate for meat you need to cut? A grainy/rough plate for dessert you need to scrape/scoop up? The wine selection was decent, but the beer selection (yes, I’m commenting on the beer) was not. We’re in Boulder and you don’t have any local breweries? There is too much good beer being brewed these days to not have good beer. Also, the beer I ordered was 3 months old.

I know this is not the type of place you go to for value, but, in all honesty, I could not believe how expensive this meal was. I spent over $600. For 2 people! We both got the chef’s tasting menu for $128/e, however, buyer beware. There is an up charge for items like the wagyu which is an additional $44/person. It wasn’t so much the price, but that it just didn’t feel good. Isn’t that what a restaurant is supposed to do? Make you feel good?

Ultimately, the location is wonderful. The people were nice. The food we had did not match. There is a level or attention to detail that I expect when visiting a place like this that we did not experience. We’d be willing to give it another chance, but it’d probably have to be on someone else’s dime.

Flagstaff House is an exceptional experience. Beautiful location, good service and very good food, just be prepared to spend a significant amount of money. It would be nice if you did not have to choose the "all inclusive" meal, if you did not want to spend that much or if you we're not that hungry. One good part about getting the full meal, is that since it's all sooo rich, it's hard to eat it all, so we, at least, had some scrupmtious leftovers for the next day. The little muchies they give btwn courses are also nice, but your still paying for them one way or another. We only go here for special occastions and our recent visit was for a significant milestone, and the staff made sure it was special for us. Personalized menus with our milestone that we could take home, we're a nice touch and a nice little momento.

Service was excellent food was terrible. Did the 4 course dinner with the tartar to start. The only course that was decent was dessert. Drinks were good as well. Menu sounded great but everything was poorly executed. All the staff we interacted with were wonderful, problem was in the kitchen.

This was our second dinner, and second anniversary celebration, at Flagstaff. Like the first time a few years ago, they knocked it out of the park - especially great during COVID. The valet said "Happy Anniversary" upon our arrival, we were given a perfect table with a stunning view, a menu that said "Congratulations", and just great service throughout our dinner. Extra kudos to our server Taylor, she was super.

Additionally, while I remember the food being "very good" last time, we wondered if there's a new chef as some of the dishes were outstanding.

As always, lots of amuse bouche dishes. And a special chocolate "Happy Anniversary" dessert - on top of the already rich and fabulous dessert that came with our four course selection. We left quite stuffed.
