We had an early dinner on a Sunday and so the restaurant was fairly quiet. Bryan waited on us and was just the right mixture of attentive, friendly and nonintrusive.

The Peach Bourbon Mule was amazing! I am not a bourbon drinker, but a big fan of varietal mules. Glad I tried this one.

My friend and I ordered the Sea Scallops and the Ribeye Steak, which we then divided to share. EVERYTHING on both plates was exceptional. From the walnut butter melted on the steak to the butternut squash succotash on the scallops plate, we cleaned our plates!

We had barely enough room to split the chocolate torte, but it was too good to waste so we ate every bite of that!

It was pricier than a chain steak house, but worth every penny! We will go back again...

Everything was great except that our food took forever to arrive. I was worried that our parking meter (i had paid for 75 min) was going to run out. This seems to be a trend with Spruce these days. Perhaps they are understaffed in the kitchen after the pandemic?

We enjoyed our meal, the second time we had eaten out in 14 months. The only complaint we had was that the pistachio ice cream was soupy, we returned it, the replacement wasn’t much better. We were pleased that we were seated immediately. August was charming, attentive and efficient.

Both my wife and I chose the prime rib for our entree's. Unfortunately the prime rib was not very tender. we've had much better and Tavern Inn in Broomfield (now defunct due to COVID) and even Outback (when they had it on their menu). The bright spot of the evening were the margaritas. Service started out good but deteriorated to so-so. Far below my expectations I had formed from the reviews and star rating others gave it. I guess I hit them on a bad night even though it appeared to be a rather moderately light evening.

We had a wonderful birthday dinner on the porch at Spruce. I would have given 5 stars across the board, but the pork special was a little overdone. That won’t keep us from going back, though.

We had a member of our party with a life-threatening allergy (to pork). The waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and helpful in finding safe choices on the menu. He immediately alerted the chef about the allergy, and guided our guest to delicious and pork-free options. The other entrees were delicious and service was excellent. Spruce has become our go-to restaurant for out-of-town guests.

Used online review sources to select restaurants for our stay in Boulder. The reviews for Spruce Farm and Fish were very enthusiastic, so we booked a dinner. The experience was "good to very good," but did not measure up to the online ratings. This is a "safe" booking, however. You will not be disappointed,

Our meals were beautifully prepared and the service was excellent. Started with a peach and orange blossom cocktail that was so good and refreshing! The scallops with corn nage and butternut squash was just so delicious and my husband enjoyed his sea bass entree as well. We ordered dessert, but the kitchen was slammed and it was taking too long, so we left. But not the fault of the waitress, who was very attentive and communicative. We just decided to call it good, and took a walk on the mall instead. Wonderful evening. Will be back soon.

The quiche special of the day was excellent served with those awesome potatoes (their version of home fries) and a bed of arugula salad. All very fresh! Truly is one of my favorite restaurants that I frequent regularly. Excellent service and a fun luncheon celebrating my friend’s 90th birthday!

The experience was lovely for my daughter’s 19th birthday that fell on Father’s Day. The only thing I didn’t cate for was the fact that although I let everyone know our dinner was for a birthday, and comm eyed that on my reservation, there was no acknowledgement for her. No small birthday dessert, no acknowledgment at all. That was disappointing but otherwise great experience!!

Hostess was clearly in a bad mood or having a bad morning. She seemed a bit irritated and I know it can hectic but it was not a great start. Not sure if it's always this busy but it was Father's Day and pretty busy for sure. Service was very spotty. Had to wait 10 min after being seated before anyone came up and asked if we wanted any water or anything to drink etc. Then food came out pretty fast but had to wait for a long time for butter since the toast came dry. Had to ask 2 different servers for someone to finally bring the butter. Food was great and would give this place another try and hope for better service next time.

Much better than expected. We shared a steak and a lobster and both were excellent. I think the desert options could have been a bit better and the service was not 100% top notch (not bad, just a step below fine dining), but all in all great meal for the price.
