    Highly disappointed. For a $75 buffet, I expect something special. Servers only brought water and drinks you paid for. They should also be serving coffee/tea instead of having customers trying to navigate many rooms, tables, and other people while trying not to spill hot liquids. Slow to clear plates. Did not earn the mandatory 20% service charge. Space was awkward, crowded, and not well organized. Had to walk to several rooms/hallway locations. Food was mediocre, waffles were very tough/chewy. The chocolate fondue was just a pot with semi warm chocolate in it and a small selection of items to dip that were mostly scraps. Food wasn’t being refilled in a timely manner. Hot honey chicken was bland. We were there an hour before the end time and things were shutting down before we finished our entree plate.

    Really wonderful Easter Brunch! Everything you could want and all fresh and delicious. Service was fantastic. Our server was very attentive, despite it being a buffet. There was also light jazz playing and an Easter Bunny walking around. The hotel is beautiful too.

    There was a lot of food choices but most of the hot food was cold at least the potatoes, short ribs, crab cakes, biscuits and gravy, sausage, bacon. Was set up nice and the buffet was well stocked but at that price point the food should be hot. There was a guy that appeared to be adjusting the setting and checking the electric warmers but too late.

    Easter brunch was a delicious array of quality, well-prepared food from lamb to seafood to more standard fare like ham and chicken. The crab cakes and braised bison short ribs were highlights. Desserts and side dishes are always very good. The Mezzanine level, with its stunning stained glass ceilng and beautiful wooden staircase in the original vintage hotel, makes a beautiful backdrop for any special occasion. We love their Thanksgiving feast, as well. Service is always superb.

    We went to the holiday tea, which is always been such a delight. The atmosphere was great, very festive, and it was fun to share it with my friends. My only real complaint is that the food on the “buffet” was not very tasty or inspiring. Some sandwiches that just weren’t very good. I hope they figure this out for next year, because I do love the holiday tea!

    Re: High Tea. I liked the new buffet style for the tea sandwiches. Much more flexibility in choices. The dessert tower was a little more awkward, as we got two of each item for a party of 4 which made it harder to share. Glass of bubbly was a nice touch, considering this is usually not offered at other teas with a comparable price.

    Hello and HAPPY NEW YEAR! I took my darling longtime friends that I’ve know since high school to your marvelous tea. Of course, the decor was so beautiful and festive, just perfect for the holiday season. The colossal Christmas tree in the lobby, jetting up to your magnificent stained glass ceiling was really spectacular. And the food overall was delicious and bountiful. Yum! But our favorite thing about the afternoon, besides being just together with friends who are like family, was the EXTRAORDINARY SERVICE we received. In particular, our servers, Sal & Andrew were charming, engaging, attentive, and such an absolute delight. For that reason alone I’ll be returning for your other tea offerings throughout the year. Truly. And when we asked to speak to a manager, as we wanted to share our delight, we were warmly greeted by Joe, Hotels Boulderado Banquet Manager, who was equally engaging and kind. Simply charming all your staff. BRAVO! Thank you so much for a really marvelous afternoon with people I adore. Perhaps my favorite gift of the season. My only actual criticism, the table was sooooo small for the four of us. You have so many wondering offerings there is no place to put it all. Thank you again, Carla Kotrc Hotel Boulderado Tea Fan

    Christmas tea was festive, but the food was not good nor was the tea selection. If you don't normally go to tea, I'm sure it would be fine, but as an avid afternoon tea goer I was very let down. The savory sandwiches looked like Costco croissants with Costco Chicken salad. The scones were so dry. The clotted cream (my favorite part of tea) was split. The only black teas were earl grey and English breakfast which you can get at any grocery store. It was nice kids under 5 were free and it was a fun festive outing, but I will not be going again.

    The food for Christmas tea was subpar for the price charged. The pastries (actually all of the baked goods) were dried out and stale. They lacked the basic components of an afternoon tea (clotted cream, lemon curd) and we had to ask for basics like spoons, sugar cubes, etc. The tea tasted like someone just opened a tea bag and placed it in the hot water. We were looking forward to a formal afternoon tea and were greatly disappointed.

    Overbooked, overcrowded, mediocre, cold food. I did feel sorry for the staff, as they were clearly overbooked - they should have had 30% fewer tables for the staff they had available to them and for the size of the room. By the time we showed up for our 4pm reservation (seated closer to 4:30), a lot of the food trays were empty and replenishment was slow or non-existent. Just sat down for dessert, and the staff was busy handing out checks to get people out of there. Overall, not a great experience at the Boulderado for Christmas.

    This was our first Christmas Brunch at the Boulerado and it was great! The ambiance was amazing. We had a table right next to the balcony with a full view of the massive Christmas tree. We are going to ask for the same table next year. Our waitress, Patricia was exceptional! The food was quite good, although the staff struggled a bit keeping the vegetable trays from being empty - there were Many people! The carving table was excellent and we enjoyed both the beef and the lamb. The desert room was also quite good, with plenty of variety, although we were pretty full by desert time. So we nibbled on several chocolates and goodies. In summary we had a wonderful time at the Christmas Brunch at the Boulerado. We plan on attend again in 2024 and beyond

    The Hotel was beautiful, the Holiday Tea @42 per person was just not as great as it could or should be. It felt a little rushed, a little done on the cheap, certainly not up to the caliber you would expect at The Boulderado. Bright spot ...the service and the people we met that worked their did their best and were very kind and helpful. Will skip next year and try another.

    So unbelievably disappointing. We have enjoyed the Boulderado holiday high tea for many years and this year was a huge let down on almost all fronts. The change to buffet style was not what we had been prepared for, and the food was almost inedible to boot. We hoped the dessert tier would make up for the lack of a savory tier, but that was also bad. Lack of care seemed evident in all parts of this experience, and again, the food was just so bad. I hope that whoever has made these changes can change them back to the holiday tea experience we have always loved.
