It took half an hour to get drinks and another half an hour to get breakfast. I have great service here in the past but it was just plain slow today.
This was the first time I enjoyed brunch at this restaurant. We had a great experience. The waiter was very kind and accommodating. Given the Covid times- The atmosphere was quite airy, distance respectful and not over crowded. The food too was tasty and coffee powerful. I will be visiting again soon.
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was even better! Our server was so attentive and kind! We will be going back for sure!!
Amazing food in a great, historic setting. Prime Rib is a must.
Impressive! When I made the reservation online, I didn't realize this was in the venerable Hotel Boulderado! What a kick to dine here. We enjoyed the service, the food and the ambiance. All four of us had seafood dishes which were exceptional.
Always great service, fabulous food and relaxing atmosphere.
Hubby and I came in with a reservation for early Sunday brunch. Waited for a long while and our eventual server was a train wreck. What a disaster. Fortunately the food was worth the wait! Delicious seafood quiche and omelettes.
Fabulous brunch specials and great atmosphere! Very romantic
Lovey atmosphere and great service
The bar area is also very nice. They are managing the COVID restrictions well
Spruce is one of Boulder's finest- a hidden gem. Top quality food and everything else! Highly encourage the trout, prime rib, scallops - and key lime pie!
Overpriced for what you get during valentine’s menu. The salad was decent. I ordered lobster and bacon wrapped filet mignon as my entree. I asked for medium rare and there was no pink at all. Turns out they gave me someone else’s plate. The lobster was rubbery and the green beans still had their stems! Once they brought me my correct plate, the steak was still over cooked, but the lobster was much better and I loved the purée. I actually preferred the bacon around the steak over the steak, which says a lot. The server was not the best multi-tasker and he rarely visited our table, but fortunately there was other staff that helped to fill our drinks and change out my entree. We had a couple directly behind us that were both on separate phone calls and the male was extremely loud with his conversation and so it was difficult to feel intimate in our experience. The final straw was when they brought out our dessert and the chocolate cake was the size of a bite-sized brownie you get from the grocery store that come with several in the package. It was literally the size of a quarter. It came with 3 cut strawberry slices that were clearly pre-cut days before and sat in the refrigerator and they were limp and not appetizing. My husband and I couldn’t help but make jokes about where the adult size dessert was and they gave us the kids menu version by mistake. This is what a $70 per person dinner equates too?! We couldn’t exit the restaurant fast enough in hopes to salvage the remainder of our valentine’s experience, but of course it would take another 10 min before we could get the server’s attention and the check. We will absolutely never me returning and are quite surprised by the ratings of this restaurant on open-table. Never again!
Great Food and a terrific waiter named Mark! Plus the ambiance of a historic property.
Mark is great! Thank you.
Warm Friendly Setting great for a Breakfast. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
Thank you we really appreciate your kind words!
Food was very good except for one steak being over cooked. Waiter was not attentive. He never asked if we wanted additional drinks and never refilled water glasses.
We had a lovely time!! Our food was great and Sam, our server, was totally excellent!!! Everything was perfect!
Sam is great! Here at Spruce, I am so thankful for our staff. Each one of them are such great people to work with. See you soon!
We had brunch this past Sunday. I love this restaurant. Many happy memories here. Because of COVID, things seem to be running a little differently. Dining room was sparsely occupied, service was very leisurely. We love our waiter and have had him before. However, we had to ask repeatedly for coffee. The girl who brought our food said she would be right back with coffee and we never saw her again. Food was average. Our pancake special (cherry almond pancakes) consisted of pancakes, 5 stemmed maraschino cherries and a drizzle of chocolate syrup (not in the menu description). I am still looking for the almonds. I will forgive all of this—hey, it’s Boulder! But we did drive up from Colorado Springs so a little attention to detail would have been nice.
Thank you so much for coming in. I am so sorry that you felt the food wasn't up to par. You are right the attention to detail is important. Thank you for letting me know, I will talk with my staff.
Great place for Sunday brunch! I would recommend. We had excellent service and good food.
I’m usually a bit hesitant to eat at the hotels I stay at, but my wife and I had a really good breakfast here. I had the eggs Benedict which was excellent and the side of bacon was really flavorful. My wife really enjoyed her pancakes. If we go back to Boulder we will definitely stay at the Boulderado and eat Spruce.
The food was very mediocre, but our waitress was exceptional! Their drinks are also very good. I would suggest coming for drinks and apps, but go elsewhere for dinner.
Very friendly, excellent food and very good Covid protocol. We’ll be back!
Good food good wine good service.
Everything was amazing! The food was fantastic, the service was prompt and the atmosphere was awesome. Definitely a 5 star!!!!
Great Dinner food was delicious. Will be returning again when we visit Boulder.
Service snd food were excellent! They did a great job with social distancing, COVID restrictions. The decor is a little tired but still a great place for dinner.
Went for brunch and was 100% satisfied with the tasty cocktails- lavender mimosa and Bloody Mary- as well as the delicious entrees. We had the French toast and avocado eggs Benedict. All prepared perfectly. Felt very safe during covid as well.
Very good social distancing. Excellent food (especially trout) and drink in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
What happened to this place? I’ve been eating here since it was Q’s and it is so awful now I won’t go back. Really a shame for a Boulder institution. Inept service, poor lighting and ambience, no filet on the menu anymore, had the steak frites and it came with some powdered gravy kind of sauce. Positively gross. All low-quality domestic wines. Massive disappointment for a once excellent restaurant.
Celebrated my Alive Day, turning 5, with my beautiful son! Every little thing exceeded our expectations!!
Excellent food and service. Our waiter really made our anniversary special.
None vegan option on the menu, under seasoned or over salted.
Lovely brunch! It is so nice to sit in the Boulderado, and have delicious food!
Nice quiet historic place for dinner, in this case, with family
Great food, great service! Keep up the good work!
Excellent food and local! I requested a quiet table and they answered with a perfect table.
It was very delicious! We most definitely will be coming back. Thanks!
Great service, I had the Smoked Prime Rib and it was the best I've ever had! My husband had the salmon and also enjoyed his meal. Outstanding!
Quiet, refined, socially distanced for dinner. Food was excellent. Recommend mussels, trout and salmon.
Surprisingly delightful brunch! The Boulderado Bowl was amazing. Spruce Farm & Fish is now on my list of regulars for my next trip to Boulder.
Food sounded good but just didn't completely deliver. It was convenient since we were staying in the hotel.
