    The service was less than a one star. We asked 3 different people including our server for water and finally the 4th person brought it. The Bloody Mary bar is nothing to write home about. The food was subpar. They forgot my husbands beer. It was a poor experience overall. We wanted to love it really badly but it is not worth it.

    We’ve lived in town since Jill’s opened and just enjoyed first dinner for anniversary. Not sure why we waited so long and we’ll be back. Awesome setting, pleasant music, great service, and most importantly, delectable dishes. And live band in the lobby for a nightcap.

    My wife and I were in Boulder for a football game and got to Jills the last night. It was the best meal of the trip and that was after going to of the other top rated restaurants in town. If you are in Boulder do not pass up an opportunity to dine here.

    I don't like to leave negative reviews - especially given the challenge of running a restaurant when labor shortages are so prevalent. However, given that Jill's is a spendy restaurant and associated with the best hotel in Boulder (St Julien), we expected a better experience than we got. The one bright spot of the meal was my salmon dish - very delish. My husband's Waygu burger was quite average. Our reservation was at 6:15 - we didn't get our food until 7:20. The restaurant was not that busy -certainly not at capacity. Our server disappeared for long stretches of time - while the people around us received their food. After dropping our cocktails - she stopped by once to check in on us - we finally had to flag her down to ask her what happened to our order. By this time we had been sitting there for an hour - wondering if our food order got lost. She was apologetic and said it would come in ten minutes -which it did. This would have been a less aggravating experience if she had come by more frequently to let us know there is a delay. As the delay dragged on, perhaps offered a free app or something. There was no manager in sight. I know that the wait staff have no control over what is happening in the kitchen. But they do have control over coming by and keeping the diners informed of what is going on. This can go a long way to maintaining a positive experience for the customer.

    Wanted to visit the last time we were in CO but didn’t book soon enough. Planned ahead this time because I’ve heard only good things about Jill’s. We waited nearly 10 -15 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation, seems the hostess disappeared after seating table before us. Food was very good, portions were large but getting a cocktail took way too long, you make money on beverages. Our first drinks Beverages arrived nearly 20 minutes later to, again restaurant was not at all crowded but wait staff was simply “chatty” and “ clueless” behind the bar. Space is pretty, food was very good but need to work creating more attentive wait staff.

    Limited menu, but fresh food. Hummus and pita was way overpriced for the 3 oz. of blended chick peas. Eggplant brioche sandwich was wonderful. Creme brulee was clunky, thick, and uninspired - for $10 was expecting better. Friend's cobb salad was run of the mill. General feeling: Meh. For $70 could have had a better lunch experience in other restaurants in downtown Boulder.

    My friend and I really enjoyed our lunch here yesterday. The decor is subdued and lovely though the a/c was a bit high and I had trouble drinking my delicious, ice-cold mocktail. We each had salads that were nicely dressed and flavorful and we shared a fabulous ricotta cheesecake (and I don't usually like cheesecake). The server was friendly and stopped by frequently but was not intrusive. We will return.

    Had a very tasty meal at Jill's. Several good vegetarian options. Big portions and very good service. Only complaint was that the hotel charges $15 to vallet the car even if you are just there for the restaurant. Parking garage was cheaper, but a bit of a hassle and the restaurant doesn't validate the Parking ticket.

    We booked a reservation at Jill’s yet it was not honored. They told us it could be a 45 min wait and service would be slow. While we did want to dine here, there are so many other great places in Boulder. Would recommend Pasta Jays - what a fun place! Many others too. I doubt we will attempt Jill’s again because if they don’t honor the Open Table reservation and couldn’t figure out how to accommodate us, I doubt the actual dining experience would be different.

    We always enjoy really well prepared food at this restaurant. This time around we were seated outside in full sun on a 90+ degree day. After inquiring about being reseated, and told that it would happen immediately, we still sat in the sun for the remainder of our meal. The service ran between excellent and mediocre. Lots of attentive care and then not so much. I understand good help is really hard to find these days. I won’t let this latest not so great meal dim my enthusiasm for Jill’s.

    The food was very heavily seasoned and very greasy. For main, We ordered the pizza and the steak, both were quite gross, with dripping oil, very salty. we didn't finish a quarter of it. We left and had another meal somewhere else. We also told the server that we didn't enjoy the food, and he was surprised and didn't know what to do. They still charged us full price for their horrible food. Will not go back.

    OMG, started off with the best French onion soup ever. The potato cubes were a nice treat too. Spanish Caesar and chopped salads were huge and tasty. Excellent filet au poivre. Comped anniversary dessert. For the first 90 min. we were the only ones there. Why? This place is great. Disappointed that it took us years to try. Will be back.

    Spanish salad was tasteless until more dressing was ordered. Lemonade was almost colored water, no flavor. The removal of dead hedges didn’t add to the ambience. On the other hand the staff were most attentive.

    We took two couples to lunch and were, frankly, embarrassed. The service was awful. The first waiter was pleasant and attentive enough but soon passed our table onto a gal who had the personality of wet cardboard (apologies for the unkind words). That would have been fine but we only got our drinks after repeated requests. We're not talking about cocktails -- it was a diet coke and iced teas, and there was barely anybody else in the dining room. The waitstaff was downright hostile making the whole experience an exercise in frustration. The food was passable if unremarkable, though I remember the acai bowl was tasty. So there's that.

    We celebrated my birthday at Jill’s Restaurant. Everything was perfect, we sat next to a window that had beautiful flowers and view of the shops across the street. Our waitress was friendly and fun. The steak was so tender and seasoned just right. The bolognese was delicious and plentiful. I highly recommend this restaurant for the delicious food and attentive staff.
