This was a truly memorable evening for our group - from the valet who took our car til the very end! A simply divine experience which clearly was a team approach by the entire staff. Our needs were met before we asked for anything ; food was delicious as were all the small bites between courses! Best dining experience for a special occasion we have ever had.

Located in the St Julien Hotel, Jill’s Restaurant & Bistro offers a thoughtful menu featuring fresh, local and dynamic ingredients. The kitchen, helmed by Executive Chef Rich Byers, sources its ingredients through partnerships with local farms, creameries and ranches, its own on-­site garden and Boulder’s seasonal Farmer’s Market – conveniently located across the street – where the chefs procure the freshest herbs, vegetables and fruits. These ingredients are used to create scratch-­made food, including pasta, bread, pastries, sauces, jus and more.

Great service and food selections — and wine!! Wait staff was excellent - split shared meals before they arrived to the table — seated us so us wasn’t in our eyes, etc.

We love the Louisville location! We live in Littleton and refuse to go to its location. So we drive to Louisville! The staff & management are always courtesy and professional! Just recently we went for my husband's bday and the restaurant was slow. They were only sitting one section but they open up another section to accommodate us! They went above and beyond for us and our server was also amazing!!! Thank you ! We love the look of the restaurant, it resembles a gold mind ! Of course the food is always cook to perfection ;) We will definitely be back and I always tell people if they want to take a little drive go visit The Melting Pot in LOUISVILLE!

Friendly staff welcomed us to a restaurant that felt warm like an at-home dining space. Wait staff was attentive and hospitable. The food! Everything was fresh, expertly seasoned, elevated flavors, perfectly cooked. Was fun to see the chefs at work. Best ever key lime “pie” with a sugar cookie crust. Our desserts were each served with an edible “happy anniversary” card made with chocolate! Memorable experience. Highly recommend!
