The Savory Cruller was so good, as was the porterhouse! Wow.
We celebrated my girlfriends birthday and had a terrific time. The food options were great, prices were reasonable, good beverages, and an exceptional staff. They made the experience nicer because it was a busy morning yet they still managed to keep everything flowing and service on par. We enjoyed brunch tremendously and my girlfriend really enjoyed the start to her birthday.
My husband and I celebrated our wedding night here after being together for almost 10 years and honestly, this staff made it the most special dining out experience we’ve ever had! Complimentary champagne, wine tasters, appetizers; they went above and beyond. And the food and wine is exceptional! 5 star location. 5 stars overall. A big thank you to the staff at The Kitchen!
The food and wine were spectacular, the service top notch and the setting magical. Eating outside with live music playing made an ordinary tuesday night feel like vacation. The only bummer was the conflicting recorded music playing loudly from the kitchen next door (I think).
I've eaten at the downtown Denver location and now Boulder. Both are wonderful and the food is delicious! Can't wait to return
Thank you so much, Leanne. I appreciate you. See you again (in either Boulder or Denver)! Best, Ken
The food and service was incredible here. I loved the cocktails. My boyfriend and I split the burrata, rib-eye and the grits- all incredible. M y favorite dish was the strawberry dessert shortcake- great to share and def worth saving room for! Expensive, but good for a special occasion.
Elizabeth, What an excellent review. Thank you very much for taking the time to write it and send it along. I'll be sure to pass along the kudos to my team. Hope to take care of you both again soon. Warmly, Ken
interesting dishes, sources, nice presentation, overpriced wine; I feel that our pricey rack of lamb (3 pieces) was undercooked and charbroiled to coal black - why? Maybe I am not up-to-date with pricing (I am out only for special occasion) - see the menu for yourself
Dina, Thank you for the review and your feedback! The rack of lamb should have come out perfect--not undercooked and charbroiled. :( Give me a shout, please, at kenfreeman@thekitchendotcome and we can chat some more. Thanks! Best, Ken
I was disappointed with my experience at The Kitchen. Nothing to do with the staff; they were great. The food was extremely underwhelming. There was not a lot of flavor, the portions were small and/or did not come as advertised (the salmon said that it came with potatoes, but it arrived with 4 cherry tomatoes instead?), and the price was absolutely ridiculous for what you get. I would not come back here.
Hi Lauren! Thank you so much for letting me know your experience. I'd love it if you could send me your contact info so that I can reach out to you personally and know more of what happened for you: kenfreeman@thekitchendotcom Thanks! Best, Ken
It’s a wonderful food experience with solid service, the outdoor dining is why I left a lower score for ambiance, it is to note the interior is lovely and only due to Corona that we choose to sit outside, great food every time.
Thanks, Charles. Low score for ambiance outside? Give me a shout and let me know why if you like. kenfreeman@thekitchendotcom We're looking forward to taking care of you again. Best, Ken
A fun treat from the kitchen, a lobster roll with Maine lobster and Boston rolls, dessert wine to celebrate our anniversary, a beautiful bone-in halibut, a perfectly roasted chicken, burrata for days. The food was incredible, the service by Sean was not too much and not too little - just right. Quiet table for my wife and I - just a great experience top to bottom.
Excellent! Jade was great. Head server went above and beyond.
Thank you, Carrie! I'll pass along the compliments to Jade. And, yes, I agree: She is great! Best, Ken
Lovely meal outside on expanded seating area on street. Delicious gazpacho with crab to start followed by halibut. Perfect evening after dropping daughter off at freshman year. Sommelier very helpful in picking a bottle we would both enjoy with our meals.
Thank you, Hylah. I'm so delighted that you enjoyed. Best to you, Ken
Delicious and special
macjack! Thank you for this! Best, Ken
Fantastic food and great service! Creative dishes and lovely presentation.
Marci, I am so glad to read this review you sent. Thank you! Can't wait to take care of you again. Best, Ken
Best part is food sources are from local organic farms.
Start lobster roll is really good quality of lobster and very tasty.
The entree shrimp black spaghetti is full of favor of chili powder?. too spicy. It tastes weird for me.
Rachel. Thanks for the heads up around the Spaghetti. It's one of our most popular and beloved dishes--I'll be checking in with Chef Team tomorrow about this. I'm stoked you loved the Roll. Isn't it so good? I haven't had better save for being in Boston--it was right there with ours. See you again. Best, Ken
We waited 50 mins for our shrimp dish to come out and it was totally overcooked. Not good at all. The staff had major attitude and were not attentive. We will not be going back.
Hi Laura, Please shoot me a quick email at kenfreeman@thekitchendotcom. I'd like very much to know more about your experience. Warmly, Ken
Celebrating my wife’s birthday and wanted a high level, dog friendly restaurant since he is too young to leave alone. In the times of Wuhan virus as many places have done we were able to dine outside with our puppy. Noise level was higher due to the busy sidewalk atmosphere with people enjoy beautiful evening. Our service was spectacular, our waiter was extremely knowledgeable on the menu and wine list and our puppy was very welcome. It made for a fabulous evening, one my wife thoroughly enjoyed!!!!
Show, I'm so glad that you AND your wife enjoyed your time with us. Thank you for giving us a whirl in this crazy moment of history as well as writing this terrific review. Well wishes to you both, and we look forward to taking care of you again. -Ken
The staff, the food and the ambiance all a 10+
You're a 10+, Anon. Thank YOU!
The service is always amazing and the food is great. Eating outdoors is a safe way to enjoy being out for dinner.
Wonderful atmosphere. Matt was great and the food was excellent.
Thanks, Anon. I agree...Matt is great. The food is excellent too. I'm stoked you had a good time with us. Best, Ken
This is the best food in Colorado. The outdoor seating innovation works. I prefer to sit outside on most nights.
BOOM! Walker, we straight up love you. Thank you for this. Come see us soon! Best, Ken
This is really a first class restaurant. Creative and well managed. Very attentive wait staff, the manager stopped by to ensure all was good, food was well prepared and cocktails special. Great wine selections. Overall slightly on the pricey side but well worth a visit. We go every few months and intend to continue.
Doug, Thank you so much for this thoughtful review. We take a helluvalot of pride in what we do and how we do it. I hope we get to take care of you again soon. Best, Ken
Great food and service!

Thank you, Kurt. Your review is amazing. I hope to take care of you again. Best, Ken
The food was amazing and the service was great. Staff is very attentive.
Anon, you're amazing. Thank you for this review. See you again. Best, Ken
Outstanding in all respects
Anon, You're outstanding. Thank you for this. Best, Ken
The food was spot on. The vibe was great. The highlight of the meal was the service. It was warm and familiar, yet impeccably professional. They were incredibly knowledgeable about the food and wine. It was, in fact, extraordinary. The staff is doing an amazing job at keeping guests safe. Everything was sparkling clean. Yet, they seemed to be in great spirits. They were all lively and sweet. It was really one of the greatest dining experiences I’ve had in a long time. Kudos to the staff!!
Anyone, I LOVE your review. Thank you for your feedback and your thoughtfulness around it. I was proud to show off to my staff. See you again soon I hope. Warmly, Ken
Great food, great ambiance, great service. A Boulder favorite for sure!
We loved our experience here and the food was wonderful!
Would have expected a place with this reputation to have better service. It was absolutely horrible. We got our appetizer about 10 min before our drinks, entrees took about an hour and were not good, the waitress maybe checked on us once. Not worth the price. I will not be returning.
Anon, Wow. I'm flabbergasted! Please give me a shout at kenfreeman@thekitchenDOTcom so that I can find out more about your experience and what happened. Thank you for letting me know. Best, Ken
Great food and great people
Joe is the best!
Do not miss the Foi Gras on brioche. It's heaven! Always enjoy my experience at The Kitchen. I'm so glad they're back serving Boulderites.
Jane, It. Is. Heaven. Truly...you hit the mark with your review. Thank you. We're so glad to be back and able to take care of you and all of our guests. Best, Ken
Really well prepared food with great flavors. We had table visits from all the staff, front to back sharing food and wine details. Nice Kitchen outing, a real midweek treat.
Thank you, GarBear. We worked hard during quarantine to create and execute a next level menu with top hospitality. Looks like we scored with you. I'm so glad. Come see us again soon! Warmly, Ken
Unbelievable meal. Delicious. Every bite
vimspot, I am delighted that you had such a great meal with us. Thank you for sending this along. See you again soon I hope. Best, Ken
Best meal ever!!!
You ROCK! Thanks for this awesome shout out. Can't wait to take care of you all again. Best, Ken
I have a severe food allergies and TK always makes
me feel safe, welcome, and takes great care of me. Not to mention, the food never disappoints and the customer service is always above and beyond. For dining out, TK feels like home.
Thank you so much, Anon. We love taking care of you, keeping you safe and welcoming you into our home. See you again. Warmly, Ken
Fabulous food and service!!!
Thanks, Anon! Best, Ken
COVID restrictions meant there were not many people dining inside, but we really enjoyed our dinner. We started with the burrata. For our main courses, I had the lamb chops, while my wife had the crab fried rice, and my daughter had the cast iron chicken. Everything was very good, but the chicken may have been my favorite. I expected it to come out in a cast iron pan based upon the menu description, but it came out in a bowl. The chicken was cut into long strips and placed over french fries. It was not the prettiest of dishes, but the flavors were incredible and it was perfectly cooked.
Kshaw, Thank you very much for this review. I'm delighted that you all in came to dine with us. And, I totally agree, the chicken is delicious. :D I'll pass it on to our Chef. Warmly, Ken
