    Best restaurant in Colorado. We enjoyed a five course meal, more like seven actually, with a directed wine pairing -- SPECTACULAR. Food and presentation were magnificent, service was superb, terrific view and ambience. Oh yea, this place is truly special.

    We celebrated my wife's birthday at the Flagstaff. It's been many years since we were there and overall we were disappointed, mainly with the food. The service was amazing and without equal, but the food was blah. Not bad mind you but not worth the price. The last few times we went, I always remember bring blown away by the food and the service. This time, everyone in our party of 7 agreed it was good but nothing to write home about.

    If you want to treat yourself to a special dinner, this is the place. It's a fixed price, 4 course meal, so not your weekly Friday night out, but was so delicious from beginning to end. The staff was just wonderful, and the view looking out over Boulder stunning. The atmosphere is casual elegance, without being stuffy. Quiet enough to hear conversations at our table, but had the general idea that people were enjoying themselves at their tables. Looking forward to trying again in the summer months :)

    What an unbelievable evening. We were treated like royalty from all of the staff including the valet parking. They made us feel very special celebrating our daughters graduation and showed us the entire night through small thoughtful gifts that they cared about this evening. The service was impeccable, the food was Michelin star and the ambiance was comfortable and elegant. We have told so many people about this evening and have spread the word about this Boulder Find! Cudos to the managers and staff and we will be back again!

    We found a hair in our food. My wife has a culinary degree and we waited 30 years to experience this restaurant. The Executive Chef has no hygiene control over his kitchen. We never had hairs in our dinners at French Laundry. Flagstaff House showed no concern over their dirty food.

    Lighting was a little low for being able to read the menu. My fish dish (Sole) was dry and overcooked. They could;d not find one of our coats at coat check for awhile. Then car valet said car was ready (2 of them) but we went outside and only one of them was ready.We had to stand in the cold while waiting for valet to figure out where/which was the 2nd car as we had given the ticket to the interior hostess but it did not get relayed to the outside valet. So nice overall, but poor unorganized exit for my party with our coats and cars.

    While the cost for an admittedly excellent meal was considerably higher than we're used to paying, the total experience was very close to being worth the cost. Impeccable, attentive service (we felt like royalty), delicious food, with portions large enough to provide a substantial taste experience, but small enough that the four courses were not more than one could comfortably enjoy eating in their entirety. The ambience and views from Flagstaff House are spectacular, and definitely added to the overall dining experience. It was a very memorable anniversary dining experience. Likely not a weekly, or even monthly, dining outing, but for very special occasions, Flagstaff House provides a very memorable experience, in the setting , the service, and the food. It will be difficult for any other "luxury" dining venue to match it, and not likely to be able provide a better overall dining experience.

    Everything was delicious except the tiramisu. The “biscuits” were so hard it was difficult to cut. Seems like it was freshly make and the biscuits didn’t have a chance to get soft. It was a bit chilly at the window. We enjoyed the experience.

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the majority of your meal, but are sorry to hear that your dessert was not up to par with your other dishes.

    Our dinner at Flagstaff House last night was memorable. Our view from the table was absolutely stunning. My menu said ‘Happy Birthday Kim’ On the front. The assistant manager came to the table to wish me a happy birthday. These things are not small. They made me feel very special and attended to. The food was fantastic and the service was impeccable. I can’t say enough about our experience at the Flagstaff House. Thank you so much.

    This was the best dinning experience I have had in years, the food, service, ambiance, and attention to detail was absolutely perfect. Each course and pairing was masterfully displayed and thought out, even the little items such as the amuse bouche and pallet cleanser was amazing. If you find yourself anywhere close to Boulder take the time and make the drive, its well worth it!! Big thanks to the staff and chef for a great night!
