    Food and service were very good. Outdoor seating was also very good until amplified singer/guitar player set up across the street with much too loud music.

    This restaurant is in a great location and attached to the Boulderado so it’s really pretty special, but the service was absolutely terrible. We waited probably 45 minutes for food and then an additional 10 minutes for all of the entrees to be delivered.

    The service was just horrendous. Super, super long wait for food abc when it came, we still had to wait minutes for the final entree. Server never checked in. Had to get the check from the bar.

    We understand that times are tough, but it was simply ridiculous that our salads took 45 minutes, and then another hour to get our entrees, which were cold and mostly inedible. We go to the Corner Bar frequently, so we fortunately know that this was not a normal occurrence, and we will be back!

    Loved your happy hour menu! Can I have the recipe for the cucumber soup?! The chicken wings, and the shrimp (not on happy hour menu) were delicious, as well. We loved trying the three different Rosés. My favorite was the one from Provence. An added bonus to our outdoor dining was a brief rain shower. We were protected by your excellent umbrellas, but nice to see and hear the rain.

    started off good but after we ordered our food the waiter kinda disappeared and we would have probably had desert but we never heard back from the waiter. had to get the hostess to get our bill and it we were pretty annoyed by the time we left. i have come to that place for years and obviously not the greatest this time.

    Unfortunately we did not have a good experience here today. Waited over 50 minutes after ordering for (3) orders of bagels and lox (cold brunch special) and s kids’ nuggets and fries, had to ask for water refills twice, and chase our waitstaff down for the couple things we were looking to get. We are casual, easygoing patrons who try to be understanding of the labor situation, but when we passed the 40 minute mark, we were done. With a tip was over $75 for a casual no-frills (mostly) cold brunch that we waited too long for. I know there are bad days in the kitchen, but it was Father’s Day and I was disappointed to “treat” my fiancé to this experience.

    We had great service and the food was very good. The band playing during part of the time we were there had their amplifier volume high to match the equally loud drummer. The band was good, but way too much sound for such a small space. You had to shout to be heard by others in our party.

    I had the prime rib French dip and my husband had the salad with crab on it. Both were very good. If I was going to nitpick the only thing I would say is that the Ajou for the French dip was cold when my mesl arrived. Other than that everything was great

    We waited 90 minutes for lunch! And during that time the servers were under lots of pressure and could not tell us when our food would be delivered. Apparently there was a large function and not enough kitchen staff. Disappointing. The food was good, when it was finally served. And we were comped for our inconvenience. I really like this restaurant and will return. Sorry it was such a touch day.

    In town for graduation from CU Boulder. Arrived at restaurant and table was ready. Very busy on a Tuesday night and unfortunately they were understaffed. We waited quite a bit for our drinks. Our waitress was very apologetic. She took our order, including an appetizer plus three entrees. We finished drinks while waiting and no one came and asked if we wanted another round. Food finally came all at once and it was cold. Food was delicious!!! But cold…. We ordered another round of drinks when food was dropped and didn’t Get them until we were done eating. Then we sat and waited for check with dirty dishes never being cleared. There were two bus boys working but they never made it to our table and our waitress didn’t clear either. It was a disappointment. It’s a great location in a historical hotel, great ambience! Food was excellent, just cold! Brussel sprout cauliflower appetizer was outstanding, but cold. They just need to work on their staffing! I would try it again.

    We’ve been here a few times. The drinks and food are great but it’s always crowded and they always seem to be understaffed. I like the atmosphere and the outside patio. The service could be better but it’s still worth the visit if you’re looking for good food and a fun vibe.
