Food is fabulous - top tier in Boulder. Servers have great energy, which is critical to enjoying the experience. Indoor is lovely atmosphere. Outdoor/street seating is fun in the summer, amidst covid. Only downside to the outdoors is the loud music from the Kitchen Next Door, which doesn't quite fit the more upscale Kitchen Bistro.
Excellent service and the food is always amazing.
AWESOME! We loved taking care of you all. See you soon I hope. Ken
Usually we have such a great experience! But this past time we were slightly disappointed in the quality of the seafood and felt that it was way overpriced for what we received. Hoping it was just an off night, this is our favorite place to dine out.
Anon, Thanks for the feedback. Please give me a shout at kenfreeman@thekitchen_dotcom I'd love to dialogue with you. Warmly, Ken
I have been going to the Kitchen since I started coming to Boulder several years ago. I've good meals and really good meals. But this time, we had a GREAT meal. The food was outstanding, and we were sitting outdoors in Pearl Street which transported us to some other, likely European, ambiance. So excited to have such good restaurants in a mountain village.
Italian, I was thrilled to read your review. Thank you for taking the time to send it to us. We are truly delighted to take care of you and offer a great experience. See you soon. Warmly, Ken
The food, drinks, service, atmosphere... you name it. The Kitchen does it with world class. We were visiting from Oklahoma and were blown away by this place. 10/10 recommend. Hope to come back soon! Pro tip: Get the burrata 🙌
Anon, You're the best. Thank you for this. Come back and see us soon! Best, Ken
Amazing service and delicious food. What more could anyone want?
Engrid, You're amazing. Thank you so much. Warmly, Ken
The Kitchen is back!!! Excellent ingredients, expertly prepared. Delicious!!
We are most definitely back, FoodJoy, and better than ever! Thank you so much for this. Best, Ken
This was our first dinner at a restaurant since the pandemic started. We were pleasantly surprised, it all went very well thanks to the planning and service at The Kitchen. Food was perfect, we finished comfortably and in less that the 90 minutes allowed.
Awesome, Bob. I'm so glad to hear that your maiden voyage outside of quarantine was a success. May there be many many more successes for you, friend. See us again soon! Best, Ken
Really good food, ambiance and service especially given Covid. The prices on some things are a bit high. Would be nice to have a happy hour snack list.
Thanks, Kim! We loved taking care of you. Best, Ken
VERY expensive, but excellent food. It took a really long time for food to be served
Thanks for the feedback, David! See you again. Best, Ken
Great dinner....liked outdoor seating...great service.
Mark, Thank you. We loved taking care of you. Best, Ken
We were celebrating a CU Graduate and The Kitchen was wonderful as always. The food and service are always amazing but I would like to make special mention of how impressed we were with their safety precautions during this pandemic. All staff were masked, as were patrons when not at their tables, there was plenty of space between tables inside, good ventilation, and we witnessed the very thorough sanitization of the the tables and chairs between diners. Pearl St. was chaotic with large groups of people unmasked but the Kitchen was a refuge and made our first meal out in four months a pleasure. Thank you, thank you! We wish you success and health.
Mags, This is wonderful. Thank you. I deeply appreciate your attention to detail and knowing how much we work to make sure every one of our guests feels safe. Best to you and your family. Happy grad!!! Warmly, Ken
Lovely place to enjoy an incredible, fresh meal. Service was great! Can’t wait to go back!
Anon, Such great news. Thank you. We so look forward to taking care of you again. See you soon. Best, Ken
Wonderful experience with great food and staff! The wine pairing they offer is incredible!
Lizz, Thank you! We're so glad you came in, and I hope to take care of you all again soon. Warmly, Ken
Despite COVID provisions it was a great experience. Well done!
Cynthia, Thank you so much for the kind feedback. We take a lot of pride in how and what we do. Looking forward to taking care of you again. Warmly, Ken
Loved the lobster roll and rose al fresco! The gazpacho is a little thick, would pass on that next time. The outdoor tables on Pearl St are divine. Hope they do it every summer.
ABitLovely, Thank you! We love having you dine with us, and we're very excited about our new menu. Come see us again soon! Best, Ken
Amazing food , drinks , and staff.
Anon, Amazing guests. Thank YOU! Warmly, Ken
As always , spectacular
The food was excellent - we had the rib-eye & rack of lamb, along with baby lettuce salad as a starter, fries & shrimp fried rice. Each dish was unique & cooked to perfection. Service was friendly & professional - such a great way to celebrate our first meal out after the last three months at home.
Anon, We've been waiting for months now to take care of you again. We're so happy that you came in to allow us to do so and to try our new menu. Thank you! Looking forward to the next time, Ken
We had an absolutely amazing dinner at the Kitchen. We had reserved a table and the table was ready when we arrived. We were shown to our seats and promptly served. We noticed the extra care and precautions that they had taken due to the Covid Pandemic. Tables were well spaced and all the servers/bar staff/greeters were wearing masks. We had the Burrata as a starter and my husband had the shrimp entree and I had the chicken. All the dishes were so delicious and delectable. I had their rose which was perfect. It was wonderful to be back there and support them. Most of all the team there were so nice, so friendly and went out of their way to make us and everyone else feel at east. Highly recommended
Fantastic, Thank you for this. We care a great deal about taking care of you and all of our guests. Please come be with us again soon. Warmly, Ken
Unusual situation... Second night of opening after 3-mo COVID shutdown. Ate outside in Pearl Street. Beautiful evening. Excellent service and the usual wonderful food. Support this unique place during these difficult times!
Richard, Thank you for coming in and allowing us to do what we do best. See you again, my friend. Best, Ken
The kitchen has been my favorite restaurant for 10 years. The food is always creative, locally sourced, and delicious. The ambiance is perfect no matter if you’re looking for a romantic date night, seeing an old fried , brunch, happy hour or casual drinks. The new menu is only missing their token Kitchen tomato soup!
Anonymous, Thank you! You're so great. I appreciate your desire for our Tomato Soup (my wife made me promise I would bring the last vestiges of it home to her!). Even with that loss, my experience is that our menu more than makes up for it. It is delicious. Come back soon, Friend, so that we can take good care of you again. Warmly, Ken
I'd recommend the Kitchen to a friend with the caveat that it might be impossibly noisy. We've eaten at the Kitchen numerous times and have always loved the food, the attentive young staff and generally the ambiance. The noise level at this latest meal, however, made talking and hearing impossible. A table of 8 women (possibly four mothers with there twenty-something daughters) were seated just behind us and the noise level became unbearable. I realize that's not something the restaurant can control but beware that if you're hoping to have an intimate conversation, The Kitchen may not be your place. We had a lot to talk about so were frustrated by the noise level. By the end we couldn't wait to get out of the restaurant!
They offer a very limited menu, especially for vegans.
The mussel appetizer dish was excellently prepared and one of the best appetizers that I have ever eaten. The service was wonderful friendly and alway keeping the food and drinks flowing.
I loved the whole setting of the place. Our server was excellent, I had food that was too spicy for me and he ended up taking it off my bill because I didn’t eat it! Thank you!
Awesome, Lexi! I'm so glad that we took good care of you. Thanks for the feedback! Best, Ken
The drinks, oysters, and pasta bolognese were amazing. Service was excellent. Definitely will be back.
The Kitchen was very good!
Thanks, AF! Appreciate the review. See you soon! Best, Ken
Well done on all accounts. Had the hummus plate, roast chicken, Scallops and Brussels sprouts. Professional yet personable service.
Chef, Thank you. Your private note means a lot to our Chef Team. Appreciate you shout out. Come back and see us soon. Best, Ken
The chicken I and my guest ordered was dry.
Anon, Give me a shout: kenfreeman@thekitchendotcom I would like to know more if you feel inspired to offer. Best, Ken
Oh my God! Everything was amazing about this gem of a restaurant!
KathyM, Love your review. Thank you! Best, Ken
I am visiting my daughter this weekend at CU, and this is our first time to this restaurant but won’t be the last. Our server was outstanding, attentive and knowledgeable. I had several questions about the wine and the food, all of which he answered expertly. The entire staff was friendly, and before I realized it, my water class was continually refilled, plates removed and our often waiter checked on whether we needed anything. The food was excellent, locally sourced and featuring organic wines and other produce. The menu is varied and has something for everyone. My daughter had the pasta bolognese and I had the salmon. Both were amazing. We definitely intend to return, and I’d highly recommend it.
Anon, WOW! What an amazing review. Thank you so much. We are so happy to take care of you (especially for all the years you have ahead of you in visiting your daughter)! See you soon. Warmly, Ken
Great place to eat ....!
Check out the bar upstairs before dinner.
Dan, You're a great guest. Appreciate the kind words and I'm delighted you enjoyed our Upstairs. Best, Ken
Great food and service, a tad on the expensive side but worth it for a special occasion. The waiter was outstanding and made great recommendations for food and wine, and he was right there when we needed him.
Miker, Wonderful. Thank you! See you again soon.. Best, Ken
Sorry to say that our experience wasn’t that great. Asked for a quiet table but, we were put by the kitchen, even though I asked for a table against the wall. Tables were too close together and I could not hear my wife because of the loud person next to us. The main entree didn’t include any vegetables except if you want to pay a lot more. The 240 Union in Lakewood has better tasting food at half the price of your restaurant, we will not be back .
Mark, I appreciate your review. Thank you for leaving your feedback. If you'd like to, I'd be very happy in having a further dialogue regarding your experience. Reach out anytime. Best, Ken kenfreeman@thekitchendotcom
Everything was amazing. My new favorite in Boulder!
Shannon, AWESOME! We adore being your favorite. Come back soon. Best, Ken
Me, my husband and my in-laws had the absolute best experience this past weekend at The Kitchen! Every single thing we ordered was fantastic! We ordered everything from appetizers, to entrees, to dessert, side dishes, cocktails & wine and every item had a unique, delicious flavor. To top it all off, our server Sean was incredible. He was knowledgeable, friendly, fun and professional. We will DEFINITELY be dining at The Kitchen again very soon!
Lindsey, This is just wonderful. Thank you so much for such a complete review. We can't wait to take care of you all again. Best, Ken
We love the fact that the food sources and consistently well sourced and it is made very clear that the food is organic, etc.
LuckyMike, Thank you! We love that fact too! See you soon. Best, Ken
Dinner was very good. Everything was fresh as well.
Thanks so much, Pamela! Appreciate you. Best, Ken
Hadn't been back here for over a year. Was very impressed. The staff is SO on point and the food still rocks! Everyone from the server assistants to the GM were beyond professional and made it a great impromptu outing. I was a little surprised it wasn't packed on a Thursday night, but all the better for us.
Appreciate you, SPG1. Thank you for this awesome review. We loved taking care of you. See you soon. Best, Ken
