I thought restaurant was very dated. The view is fantastic but no one was interested in showing us around on a very quite night. It was more about getting out of there. The bar was quite and to have a conversation versus the bartender slamming old refridge doors was comical. The main dish was average at best. The chefs treats where a welcome addition. The waitress was very nice but very business like for a slow night with very few tables.

It's funny. The Flagstaff House is and has been the pinnacle of Boulder dining for decades. It's a truly lovely spot with amazing views. But this is the third time we've eaten there in the last several years and the third time it was disappointing. This time, I started with some oysters, served with lime and tequila. Nice concept. But the tequila has so much sugar added, it was really a sugar syrup that completely drowned out the beautiful oysters. The salad was completely ho-hum. I had the vegetable taster for the main course. There was a lovely quinoa with basil oil. But the raw vegetable salad was dressed only in lemon juice - no oil, no balance, and an overwhelming sour taste that - wait for it - drowned out the taste of the veg. Likewise, there was a tian of zucchini and goat cheese. Hard to find the goat cheese at all, but someone decided to add an unholy amount of vinegar to it...nothing warm and cozy about this dish. The onion an mushroom pot pie had nearly raw zucchini and fennel added which again detracted from the well cooked onions and fungus. Even the dessert was ordinary.... I would recommend that Flagstaff for cocktails (which were good) and their coffee service (which is amazing).... but for $300 for two people, we won't be coming back soon....

I'd heard so much about the Flagstaff House that I was skeptical on this, our first visit, so I was so incredibly impressed by everything about our evening! We've been fortunate enough to eat at great restaurants throughout the world, and Flagstaff house may very well be the nicest restaurant we've ever been to- the setting, views, ambiance, service, and food were all phenomenal. It's pricey, but it is a true dining experience, and likely worth the price. Look forward to going there for special occasions in the future!

As always, the food was perfect and all the extra "chef goodies" were superb! My steak was cooked to perfection and they substituted the "greens" for squash. The Halibut was a large piece with shrimp alongside and both were great. The salads were delicious and the Crème Brule fabulous (as always). Love their cup of coffee with all the accompaniments!! The bread selection is great, especially the Walnut swirl. A great experience every time we dine here. AND the view is the best on the Front range!

We went for a family dining experience and all of us enjoyed ourselves. The server, Elizabeth, was experienced and helpful. The noise level was a little high but that was probably more about acoustics than anything that could be controlled. Two people ordered the coq au vin. One person was impressed but the other thought it was fine but definitely not the best she had ever had. A beautiful view, good food and time with family made it a lovely memory.

If I had one thing to complain about it was the speed of the meal. We were there for 2.5 hours. Maybe that's how all fine dining is...we don't do it a lot

Provided us with a fantastic anniversary experience. All of the servers wished us a happy anniversary, they gave us a free dessert, and printed off custom menus reading “Happy Anniversary” on the front. The ambience and service matched the unbelievable prime rib, filet mignon, venison, and scallops and greatly exceeded our already lofty expectations. Would recommend to anyone looking for an unbelievable time, especially a special occasion.

Of all the upscale restaurants in Boulder, the Flagstaff House is by far the best in terms of food, wine, and experience. There is some pretension in many of Boulder's nicer restaurants -- waiters who are probably trained to be seen and not heard, prices not listed on menus, sommeliers who make you feel ignorant, etc. The Flagstaff House could be that, but it's not. Every staff member I've met there is personable and professional without being standoffish. Always a pleasant and welcoming experience, and I look forward to many more special occasions there.

What an amazing experience! We had renewed our vows At Artist's Point on top of Chautauqua Park. Went to Flagstaff House on the recommendation of friends of my son. The service was impeccable, the food and presentation was delicious, the extra surprises (our menus said 'Happy Anniversary Mr & Mrs ....US..." as a souvenir). The amuse bouce, the palate cleanser (which was a wonderful sorbet sitting in a phyllo crust), the chef's treat were wonderful. After dinner we received a tour of where all of the wines are kept - the sommelier was excellent. What a charming man! On top of that, at dinners end, we passed on desert....and here came this beautiful heart shaped centerpiece with Happy Anniversary written on it...surrounded by a tasting of 5 creative tiny little desserts....then they presented us with little cakes ....and as a thank you gift - everyone received an loaf on wrapped spice bread!
What a magical experience! It topped off a magical day that was wonderful! Kudos to Flagstaff House!

Everything from start to finish was nothing short of spectacular! From the complimentary valet to the very last person we spoke to. Our server was there when you needed but not overkill. Others that stopped by the table were very friendly. The food far surpassed our expectations! Filet and salmon if you were wondering. Best dinning experience ive had and was in the industry for 10 years, which means i can be critical. I wouldnt change a single thing about my experience, simply brilliant!

Disappointed...

My wife and I were celebrating our 15 year anniversary. The view was nice looking over Boulder although the service was terrible. The best way to best describe it would be - “the feeling of being forgotten all night.” We were at the restaurant for 2.5 hours and outside of dessert had to ask for everything. Also, for us the food was just okay given the price.

I have heard good things about the Flagstaff House and maybe they had an off night.

Trying to give them the benefit is the doubt...
