View is nice but prices are ridiculously high. This is NOT a 5 star restaurant. Food was good (not great) but portions were small. Sorry, but the tiny toast with goat cheese, the tiny "bacon & eggs" appetizer (it was horrible), palate cleanser and novelty dessert taste collectively didn't raise the experience to justify such ridiculous prices. However, since the restaurant appeared busy, I guess these things don't matter to everyone else. Lower your prices, cut out the pretentious between course novelties and increase your portion size and I'll be back.

It had been a couple of decades since I last eaten there when my wife and I decided to celebrate our 5th Anniversary at the Flagstaff House. We experienced what we came for - excellent food with a gorgeous view of Boulder and the surrounding foothills. Most surprising (especially during the pandemic, where we've seen other companies fall way off in delivering a good customer experience), from the reservation process through the entire meal, the focus on detail and outstanding customer service delivered by this excellent restaurant was nothing short of amazing. We had a delightful evening, and would highly recommend visiting the Flagstaff House.

The Flagstaff House is one of our favorite restaurants in Colorado. We drive over an hour on special occasions to celebrate. Their food is always divine, their service from the valet to the table servers are polite and genuinely glad that you are a patron. We have found them eager to accomodate any special needs or requests. You won't be disappointed at the Flagstaff House!

If I could give this location 10 stars I would. It is our favorite restaurant in Denver and surrounding areas. The staff is amazing from the moment you enter until you leave. The food is incomparable to any other restaurant, including the Brown Palace. They change their menus depending upon the season and so you won’t find standard fare here. Yes, it is expensive but worth every dollar! Where can you find a view like this with all of the other amenities?

The service was very well done. Some of the best I've had. Nicely spaced,yet personable and available.

The Easter Brunch menu was hit and miss. Some dishes just didn't work, even though they were beautifully plated.

The venue on a warm spring day can't be beat. It brought back great memories of eating at the Flagstaff House on special occasions in the 1970's. We'll definitely be back.

The minute you book with Flagstaff House, you know you are in for a treat. Excellent customer service and innovative food combinations( that are to die for) are what sets Flagstaff House heads and shoulders above the crowd. Our experience starts with a beautiful drive up the canyon, followed by complimentary valet parking. Our table was on the closed-in porch area. The view is breathtaking! Our three-course tasting meal started with some surprises like a bacon-wrapped banana. Yum! There were several choices available from the tasting menu. I picked avocado crab topped toast, lamb, and carrot cake. Everything was delicious. We also had many drink choices, including a variety of mimosas, wine, and specialty cocktails. The meal was out of this world, and the service impeccable. Worth every penny!

From the moment of arrival, checking in, sitted at a table with themost beautiful views, 4 courses of blissful taste bud experiences, gifted with inbetween courses and a take home suprise by the Pastry Chef to have with coffee in the morning! Flagstaff House is truly a fine dinning experience! Make reservations!

We were meant to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary at Flagstaff House in March 2020 - unfortunately, the pandemic had other plans. We were able to reschedule this year for our 11th. We were seated on the beautiful patio (with more than enough heaters to keep us comfortable), with a great view. David, our server, was wonderful - always available, but not intrusive at all. We chose the chef's tasting menu with wine pairings. The meal was perfectly paced, with just the right amount of both food and wine. It was a 3 hour dinner total - we never felt rushed or waiting, it was perfect. We will definitely be back for other special occasions!

Wife and I were celebrating our 10th anniversary and after a friend had recently mentioned Flagstaff House we thought that would be a great place to go. And it was all that and more.

I have been fortunate to experience plenty of fine dining in my life and this meal was easily in the top 10 of my greatest restaurant experiences - perhaps even top 5. We arrived 20 minutes early but were seated promptly at a table by the window with an amazing view of Boulder. We were quickly greeted by our server, Peyton, and that was the beginning of some of the best service I’ve ever experienced.

They have a truly world-class wine menu with many rare and obscure varietals and vintages. Most bottles exceed $200 with many above $500. We are wine enthusiasts and have our own wine cellar but this menu was a bit intimidating. I asked if they had a sommelier and a few minutes later were greeted by Page who said he works there part time. We mostly drink Napa reds but wanted something different and under $200. Page listed a few choices but recommended a Spanish Rioja for $165. He nailed it and it was the perfect pairing throughout our meal. We enjoyed this bottle so much that I went online and ordered 6 bottles the next day.

We both ordered their four course menu with me ordering the wagyu wontons, “Filet Oscar” (a very clever riff on the famous dish made with a wagyu sausage as the centerpiece), filet mignon and creme broulee for dessert. My wife ordered the Maine lobster soup, asparagus dish, lamb and warm chocolate cake. Every dish was outstanding, cooked perfectly and plated beautifully. They started with an unexpected amouse bouche to wake up our taste buds. Before the third course they served a very small ball of lemon-raspberry sorbet in a filo dough cup that was the perfect palate cleanser.

As mentioned, service throughout the meal was outstanding but not overboard. We wanted for nothing. Total bill was just over $400 and I left a 30% tip. Cannot wait to go back.

As we were sipping our wine a deer wandered by right by the window we were sitting at. As the evening progressed, the city lights came on and created an even more beautiful backdrop. Just this would have made the evening, but the service, attention to detail, and extra "tastes" between courses made this a memorable event. Thank you so much Flagstaff House!
