Back when I moved into Boulder, the Flagstaff was *the* high-end restaurant in the area. 30 years later, and there's now a ton of offerings down on Pearl, all around town, and in Denver if you want to go that far. New places like Frasca and the Black Cat are the hot tickets now.
Still, the Flagstaff still does not disappoint. I know we rarely talk about "value" when judging high-end restaurants, but I have to say, in this case, it's worth mentioning. Although it's certainly not a cheap evening, you get a lot of value for your money at the Flagstaff - a few that can't be beat, impeccable service, a relaxed, convivial atmosphere where, hold the phone - you can actually *hear* your dining companion speaking at normal tone of voice, great food, and a variety of little touches and extras that turn an evening out into a celebration.
I went there once or twice in the past on special occasions, and then, for some reason, never went back. This weekend, I wondered why. We'll definitely be going back when we have occasion to celebrate - maybe even when we don't, but just want to celebrate life.
We love the Flagstaff house when we want a nice meal with an amazing view of Boulder. They staff attends to every need and the food is pretty darn good. We will come here year after year for our fancy family events
This was a great place for a special occasion. Very good staff. Amy our waitress was amazing and we had a later reservation so she really spent her time with us. She even took the time to write down the wine I had on a special card.
Our second visit was even better than our first a couple of years ago! The only thing better then the fabulous view was the incredible food and outstanding service. We went an hour before sunset and just enjoyed watching the valley light up and the lovely sky. It's a really easy drive up...not to be missed.
This place has always been a great date night place for me and my Fiancé. We love the views and the staff is great.
A lot of restaurants have great tasting food and Flagstaff House is certainly one of them. So, go for the food, but what sets them apart is how the staff makes you feel special, the amazing view out over the Foothills and Boulder, and the romantic ambiance.
My wife and I have been to Flagstaff House at least half a dozen times and each visit has been fantastic. This time we decided to start at the bar for cocktails and then get seated for dinner. There are many tables by windows and we once again got a table for two with a great view as the sun set and the lights of Boulder began to shine. Dinner was excellent and included palate cleansers between courses. Dessert was creative, on fire (literally, for a few moments) and quite chocolatey.
Flagstaff House has it all: great food, very rare location and view, superb service, and a truly romantic atmosphere. Here's where you can dress to the nines to make the evening that much more special. Savor your time at Flagstaff House and share the moment.
Once again we were not wowed by the service or the food! In the early 2000nd we come to the Flagstaff House several times a year! It was our go to place for birthday, graduation, teams winning the champion. But the service dropped and the menu was never updated. So we thought we would try one more time! The service was not very good and we had to wait a long time for our main entry to be served. The wife ordered the filet and asked for it to be medium rare on the rare side! It was medium, the trout was boring! We have always thought highly of the FlagStaff house but we will not be returning again for a long time!
My husband and I have a tradition of going to flagstaff house for our anniversary since moving to Boulder and we absolutely love it. We look forward to this dining experience all year, it’s our favorite Boulder restaurant.
Wonderfully romantic restaurant for our anniversary dinner. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Plus the beautiful view! What more could we ask for.
Very nice restaurant with good food and service. Perfect for special occasions.
A wonderful place to celebrate a special birthday.
Flagstaff is one of the best restaurants in northern Colorado. It can be on the pricey side our bill came to around $250 but it was completely worth it. Amazing view of downtown Boulder very beautiful at night and the service is very cordial definitely recommend for special occasions
One of the best dining experiences my girl and I have ever had! The food is phenomenal and the service is excellent! Everything was just right. I highly recommend this place to all my friends and family! It's perfect for any occasion. My hats off to all at Flaggstaff House! You all made it an unforgettable night!
Atmosphere and service were great, as it always is. The food was blah. Lobster soup was very salty. Monk fish was bland, a little dry, with no sauce. My wife's scallops were tasty but the trout was dry and, again bland. For the price, very disappointing.
Did not get served at the bar while waiting for our table until I asked if it was "serve yourself". Som never came back to pour our wine. Didn't have the wine we wanted that was on the menu. Didn't see him again the whole night. Waiter was nice. They gave us a nice "congrats" menu and dessert. Food was good; it was the service that was severely lacking.
An iconic restaurant with a spectacular view of Boulder. Very good food with a truly phenomenal wine list. Service is very prompt and attentive, without being intrusive. A wonderful place for a special occasion with a quiet sophisticated atmosphere.
Top notch everything, but pricey. Worth every penny for that special someone!!
Very good groove and nice people service was a bit slow
We have been numerous times and enjoyed each time. But this time, valentine day, the food came luke warm, waited long timel we had to return twice glasses of wine, at one point a waitress came to ask if she could remove our main course plates while still food in them??? Valet spinned up my truck driving it to us.
Great Valentines Day dinner. Food was delicious and service was fantastic. Will definitely return!
Have not been there for thirty years. Was as phenomenol as we had remembered. Atmosphere unmatched. Service very attentive but not smothering. Food incredible. My salmon was the best I’ve had in a long time. A wonderful Valentines dinner with husband.
Food was grand. Nice selection. Attentive, knowledgable staff.
Always awesome! My favorite in Denver area
Always an amazing view. Food was not as good as previously. No signage for exiting the parking lot to go back to Boulder. We turned the wrong way and went 9 1/2 miles up a very winding road in the dark up the mountain. I have never worried so much about getting down safely. The service has always been exceptional and the view is breathtaking
We were wonderfully attended to by the staff in every aspect, from prompt seating to the presentations! We chose a fresh fish and the lobster, both dishes were prepared to perfection and wonderfully presented. Our waitstaff were always prompt with every course and checking to see if everything was to our liking. The Creme Brulee was scrumptous!
We booked the private room for the bridal dinner!
This was my seco y time here and I was disappointed with the food. I ordered the monkfish. I was dry and did not taste anything special. We brought friends visiting from New York and everyone was lukewarm with their food. It is too expensive to disappoint this way. First time was great though.
Mu husband took us here for Valentines Day. Great date night. Great service from valet through dessert. As others have mentioned Flagstaff is due for s facelift but that does not change the food or service that we have come to expect. The little extras that they serve are so fun and of course you go home with a small loaf of bread for the next morning. Overall outstanding. The only thin we marked less than outstanding was the wine as they are overpriced.
Was an amazing experience. Best part of the delicious food was the pre-order dessert. Hands down one of the best pastries my boyfriend and I have had.
