Nice feel to the place. Plenty of room between the tables -really good social distancing. Service was excellent. Hamburger was amazing, as was the Scallop Corn Nage dish.

The food is always amazing at Spruce. The servers are super busy but patient & efficient & friendly. Sometimes (like this morning at 7:45 a.m.) there are LOUD guests who obviously think the entire hotel/restaurant needs to hear their fascinating conversation. But I have earbuds & youtube music for that.

I stayed at the Boulderado for a working mini vacation Sunday-this morning. Had an amazing dinner Sunday evening (salmon & veggies) with chocolate torte for dessert (unreal deliciousness). Breakfast Monday was English muffin, bowl (big!) of berries and cafe au lait. So good. I skipped lunch and did a stroll down Pearl Street (got falafel for early dinner). Then breakfast this morning of Waffles Foster. SO delicious.

My husband & I are not wealthy. We've gone up & down financially in our 35 years together. But when we Can afford it, Spruce is THE place to go in Boulder, CO

We had an excellent double birthday celebration at Spruce Farm and Fish. I asked for a quiet table, and they gave us what had to be their nicest table. The food was very good. Portions were generous. Loved the ambiance. It was an all-around great experience. We will definitely return.

On the bright side, the food (once and as it came out) was very good. Service was chaotic. We had no silverware when the food came out. We had to hunt down other requests. I hope Spruce can pull its service together. Iif like to see them survive.

My husband and I had our first date at the Boulderado in 1987 so it has a special place in our hearts. We always return on special days.
This Easter Sunday we were thrilled to snag a reservation.
Your menu never disappoints us. My husband is a vegetarian and I am on a Keto diet.
Does this sound like we are impossible to please? NO!
We were given 4 menus.
It took us 10 minutes to choose our separate options.
I wish we lived closer to the restaurant, it is so much easier to order than to think of what to make for dinner at home in Loveland.
We love you!

Had an old fashioned to start. Wild Trout for entree and it was on point and washed down with a nice Chardonnay. Key Lime Pie and an Americano for dessert. Both food and service were outstanding. Perfect evening.

We enjoyed our brunch, the food was great. Service was a bit slow and they were not too busy. The mangers were having a meeting taking up a prime table. Being very loud in their conversations talking about menus and getting more people in. Other people were made to sit at smaller tables in less favorable spots. The meeting should have been in an office or at an off time. It was tough to have our own conversation. But the food was great.

Service was terrible. Potatoes were cold. Prime rib was rubbery. The server barely came by. Wastes over $100 on a meal we barely touched.

Overall very good experience but they were out of my favorite gin, and my second favorite gin, and my third favorite gin. They comped me the house gin. Which was very good. Rethinking my favorite gin.

The food was excellent. We stay at the Boulderado every March, and always eat at Spruce. The food this year was the best we've had at the restaurant. Apparently they have a new executive chef, and he's doing a great job. Highly recommend the scallops.

Perhaps chalk it up to covid, but the food execution (March 2021) was off in the scallop dishes ordered (undercooked vegetables, overly salted, mediocre). In fairness, that and the fried sprouts were the only main dishes ordered. On a positive note, the mixology was excellent on the drink side as was the staff and service in spite of having to run around wearing masks.

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.

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.
