    We were a little hesitant to eat here because of a few terrible reviews but found that we agreed with the positive ones. We found the food excellent, timing reasonable and our waitperson pleasant, helpful and efficient.

    My daughters and I took my husband for Father’s Day brunch. They were out of a number of the items (like the carrot cake French toast). While the food wait was a little long, which we do t mind, most of the food came out cold and it was nothing to rave about. $140 without tip for 5 people. Not worth it.

    We went for Father’s Day. Have been many times with great service and food. This time, the waitress overcharged us for berries and fruit —-we just wanted berries but she charged us for both. She didn’t offer any drinks, etc and did not ask if we needed anything else after the food was brought. One entree —avacado Benedict was cold.

    Anytime that everyone at the table says their food was great, it’s a winner! We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday brunch and we’d happily go back again. I will say you should avoid the Irish coffee, but the Bloody Mary and the Mimosa were great!

    Spruce is not the same as it use to be. The service is okay - not great. The food is very mediocre. The last couple of times it's been disappointing. It's time to move on.

    The staff was very nice, the food not so much. The appetizer was the most flavorful of the whole meal. The trout plate was very bland and the prime rib (for 50$) was tough with tendons and not a lot of flavor.

    This was absolutely the worse dining experience I have had hands down. The service was slow. The entrees did not come out at the same same time. One of our guests had to ask for her food when everyone else already had theirs. The bison was trash. I might as well asked for an Omaha steak out of the road side delivery truck cooked on a hot plate. The lamb was undercooked so bad you could tell the kitchen staff cut it and said eff it. And threw it in the microwave. Do not waste your $400plus dinner here.

    Service was good. Food was ok to good. Crab salad had little flavor and was mostly lettuce. Calamari was dry. Brussels sprouts were good. It's a good place to go without of town guests because of its location and its menu selection. I just wouldn't get the calamari or crab salad again.

    We went for Saturday brunch and the menu was great! The service was very lacking and I think it is because they were understaffed. It looked like our server was trying to oversee a pretty big area. I would definitely come here again because the food choices are great quality and always interesting, and the drink menu is very nice. It is definitely a good place to bring visitors to Boulder, because it is inside the historic hotel and will definitely make a good impression overall.

    First time to dine here and will definitely return. Excellent New England Clam Chowder and have had a lot of this in Maine. Salads are exceptionally large (entree size). Good flavor pairings and presentation. Take time to enjoy the hotel too. There are tours you can request in advance or self-guided.

    Cannot speak highly enough about our service! Our waiter was incredibly thoughtful and efficient. We went for our ten year anniversary and the kitchen made a little sign with chocolate to congratulate us. The food was fresh, creative and so so good. The house red sangria made the night even better. Such a lovely place to celebrate with someone you care about! Thanks Spruce!!

    The food was fine but not really worth the price. The alcohol was expensive and tasted a bit light on the pour for the specialty drinks. Our waiter was polite but we had deadtime that was longer than normal with dirty glasses and plates accumulating. The carrot cake was very average.

    This restaurant is inside the Boulderado Hotel. The food was very good. We had the trout and the sea bass. Any sides like salads are all extra. Service was good. The ambiance was good. It seemed a little pricey for what we got, but what do we know. It’s worth going back to.

Everyone loved how their meals tasted and were presented. Finally, we had a table near some windows. Wonderful ambience and classy place.
