The salmon dish is a classic. We come back specifically for that dish. The salmon is always perfectly grilled, the greens wilted by the heat of the salmon, the wild local mushrooms perfectly cooked and delicious, and the salmon and greens are bathed in a flavorful citrusy sauce. I would have preferred more greens, as the quantity was barely enough to peek out from beneath the salmon. I can't recommend the fried bread that I ordered as an accompaniment. It was cold when it arrived and each of the three pieces was charred. When I asked the server for salt when the main course was served, he said "of course" but never returned with it. Halfway through the meal we were able to flag down another server.
Excellent menu choices, Favorites were the brussell sprouts and the barratta with tomato and polenta. Great drink menu too. Seated promptly for our reservation. Ahi tuna special was also very good. Loved the atmosphere.
Love the salmon dinner and bruessel sprouts appetizer!
Delicious mahi mahi and the sides were amazing, too! Yum!
The food, service and everything was exceptional. The waitstaff was very nice, friendly and accommodating. It is so rare when you receive excellent fare that is priced correctly where each small plate was better than the next. We ate outside which added to the experience. Thank you!
Absolutely one of the best restaurants ever. The food and service were great. Everything we ordered was phenomenal. We will recommend it to everyone we know.
This was our first visit to Riff's and we had a wonderful time. House special drinks were a tad pricy but outstanding - definitely worth it. Service was prompt and friendly and the menu full of pleasant surprises. We'll go back there soon!
Food is great and fresh. Good bar too. Casual, but nice. Great all around spot for a good meal with friends and family.
Always a pleasure to dine here!! My 11th time here and never a disappointment! Food, drinks and the staff are always top notch.
The plank salmon was delectable! It was an anniversary dinner and they allowed us to just sit and talk for a long time.
I made a reservation for this place, was warned that my reservation would only be held for 5 minutes. Well, I arrived with my lunch companion promptly at 11:30 am only to find the restaurant not even open. I got the attention of an employee inside who told me it would open in t 10 or 15 minutes. I said that's bs went to another restaurant, was ushered in and had a lovely lunch. No room for incompetent management in this day and age.
Ordered several different items and every single one was cooked to perfection. Can't recommend enough
I am an ex-restaurant manager, waitress, hostess, bar tender, expo, etc., who is extremely hard to please. After many years in the business I have pretty high standards for all aspects of the business! I discovered Riffs over three years ago and have frequented it several times since my discovery. The service, food, menu, flavors, and atmosphere have never disappointed!! It is my favorite downtown Boulder restaurant!
The food was outstanding. The dessert was especially divine. Service was good, prices are fair for the quality of food.
Our favorite restaurant in Boulder. Great food. Excellent wine selection. Perfect portion sizes - and all at an excellent price. Wait staff is always pleasant and knowledgeable. And great for people watching along Pearl St Mall. Parking is easy as well as its right next to the parking garage.
Entertaining friends from NY and of all the good places to possible have a great time with great food we chose Riff for what came to be obvious reasons; the greeting was warm, the beverages offered were just to everyone's taste, the starters were delicious; as were the entrees and dessert. Great experience! Tough if not impossible to beat. And, it's more than a place for special occasions, anytime is just fine.
Good food, great appetizers and daily specials. Wonderful front of restaurant seating for people watching on Pearl street mall.
Gracious. Efficient. Delicious. Seamless.
Riffs was a fun upbeat restaurant with a varied menu and great food. Attentive service, creative cocktails.
Great food with local sourcing. We stop by whenever in Boulder, usually twice a year. Servers are always attentive and interesting to chat with. Our server this time comped the dessert, and for no particular reason. Love this place.
