    I hate giving bad reviews. I feel I have no choice in this instance. My bf and I flew in to Denver airport for a birthday trip to Red Rocks. We decided we wanted to stop in Boulder for lunch. After flying all day, we were starved and I looked up all the spots in Boulder on Open Table, and based on the menu and the ratings, we thought this would be a great choice. We arrived around 3 pm and could not have had a worse experience. First, when I asked to sit at a table with sun on the patio, the hostess was visibally annoyed, even though there were at least six open patio tables for all size of parties. I waited tables for many years and I understand that her job is to ensure proper table rotation for the servers, etc., but you never treat your customers with disdain, or argue with them over a reasonable request. This was just an omen of what was yet to come. The server for our table was very pleasant and polite, we ordered two cocktails for happy hour, but they were out of the pina colada that was advertised and that my BF had his heart set on. We then proceeded to wait 20 minutes for our drinks and got our first appetizer about 30 minutes after that, which were sliders that were completely cold. We sent them back. Another 20 minutes went by and we asked about our entrees. The server told us that my crab salad was on the way. I asked, "What about his chicken salad?" and her eyes got real big and then she said, 'oh yeah, it's coming too,' and then hurried off. We then waited another 20 minutes for the forgotten salad to come out with the sparce crab salad. Meanwhile, several tables that arrived after us were well in to their meals or already gone. We watched as the chef had lunch with his gf at table next to us, while our food was inexcusably delayed. We were there almost two hours and left feeling still hungry, ripped off and treated as just another number. I would never go back here and this lunch tarnished my arrival to Colorado for my birthday weekend.

    Not our first visit but as with others in the past we had a very enjoyable experience. Our server was friendly and spot on with service. We really enjoy the Happy Hour specials this time around. Good value and delicious; roasted brussel sprouts, prime rib sliders (buns are a bit much if you are watching carbs but the stead was good) and parmesan fries - nice and crispy). As we sat outside "noise" was minimal (other than the momentary rantings on the street of some homeless arguing with each other).

    Excellent evening - really good service (friendly, helpful and efficient and knowledgeable) - and the food was pretty good too. Good wine list and OK cocktails, but VERY limited beer list (be warned, or go elsewhere). The location (outside) is also a massive plus and makes the experience memorable too. My advice: take the chance to wander into the Hotel Lobby - it's worth the stroll and a Boulder experience. Would we go back? Most certainly!

    I always bring my friends here for a birthday lunch. The food is always good, and I love sitting outside on the patio. I usually get salmon salad or sandwich, and it's prepared in a unique and delicious way.

    We came to celebrate our son’s move in eve to start at CU Boulder. Understanding it’s a busier night than normal, they could have had an extra bartender and server on staff. Most of the food was quite good, including the Steak Frites, Ousters, Bison Pastrami and Grilled Calamari. The Baum Mi came up a little short. Drinks were excellent, especially the Mule and the martini. We’ll come back for sure.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
