    We have lived in Boulder for many years and have been enjoying Spruce Farm & fish for breakfast, lunch and dinner ever since it opened. We love the ambiance of the restaurant and the historic Boulderado. We often take out of town guest here. We like the menu choices, my favorite is the mustard crusted salmon over quinoa salad and my husband enjoyed the trout. We have many breakfast choices that we enjoy. You can't go wrong.

    Spruce Farm & FishResponded on January 16, 2023Thank you so much for the positive feedback! We love hearing about these experiences and look forward to serving you in the future!

    It was a lovely birthday lunch with friends. The menu was great and we were all happy with our selections. We started with Bloody Mary’s and Prosecco. It was a gray gloomy day outside, but our service was wonderful and we were soon in a celebratory mood!

    Great location and ambience, but food was just average. Very large menu, but the cioppino was just so-so, the trout had way too much butter, deviled eggs had olives for a twist, but I'd say stick with the classic recipe.

    Calamari was not good; seemed old. Timing of food was rushed. Apps came out right after ordering and before drinks. Salads came while eating apps and dessert menu offered halfway through entrees. Main dishes were really good but that’s it. Not worth the money at all.

    It was my last night in Boulder visiting my daughter and we wanted to have a memorable meal. Spruce Farm and Fish was the perfect choice. Our server, Spencer, was knowledgeable and professional. We each had a cocktail (Yak Wool Socks for me and an old fashioned for my daughter). They were perfect. Then I ordered the Paillard chicken and my daughter had the salmon salad. Again both excellent. But for me the piece de resistance was the key lime pie. It was amazing. Perfect end to a great visit - we’ll be back!

    We arrived in time for Happy Hour so enjoyed cocktails and starters. The calamari, roasted brussels sprouts and truffle fries were each delicious! We drank the unique Cashmire Oasis (yum!) and another tried the Stregabuela, also yum! Though we were feeling satisfied our palettes still wanted to try some entrées. The stuffed swordfish was excellent as was the red snapper with crab etoufee and the steak & fries. So sorry I didn't take photos. Also wanted to mention excellent service by Spencer who helped guide our selections and took great care of us throughout!

    The restaurant is on the ground floor of a restaurant , we took the wrong entrance by luck . Inside the hotel lobby is very beautiful , with an awesome stained glass ceiling. We circled around the bar where we we greeted by the friendly hostess. The menu had plenty of selections, enough to satisfy everyone at our table, even the ones with dietary restrictions. Drinks were served , followed by mussels, oysters, roasted cauliflower, and Brussels, all were done to perfection. The main course of trout, ribeye steak, and prime rib were served and was thoroughly enjoyed by all . The service was great and without to much hovering. I only dine at fine restaurants, and this one ranks high on my list. The only thing wrong was we had to pay a premium. I’ve learned great food comes with a price , and I thought the price was fair. We highly recommend.

    We had breakfast/brunch. The food was good. But the coffee was SO STRONG we were bothered by it later. This sounds petty unless you really like a good cup of coffee! The service could be more professional. Sloppily dressed greeter and servers. I expected better at one of the top hotels in Boulder.

    Our favorite Boulder restaurant! We both ordered the french dip sandwich because it sounded delicious. And it definitely was! It came with au jus which was tasty but not necessary as the meat was already juicy and falling apart tender. We have ordered the top of the line entrees and something on the sandwich menu. Never disappointed with either. The Sea Scallops wirh Corn Nage is amazing. The ribeye steak, when on the menu, is perfection. If you have room for dessert, anything on that menu is worth the calories.

    Spruce Farm & FishResponded on December 19, 2022Thank you so much! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to serving you for many more years to come!
