The food was excellent. The service was okay. I am a single woman and my waiter was pleasant, but he never asked me if I needed anything after my meal was served. There was a lack of attention.

Celebrated our anniversary at Spruce Farm and Fish. The server forgot to get us bread, but oh well. The calamari appetizer was very good. We also shared the small Caesar salad, which the kitchen was gracious enough to split in half for us. I had the rib eye, and it was delicious even though it was not prepared medium-well, the way I ordered it. My husband had the pheasant, which was also quite good. The Key Lime pie was the real star though. Best Key Lime Pie I have ever had!

It is a beautiful place with a great menu offering lots of fish and meat. I ordered Tuna and the fish was excellent. The only problem is that the menu failed to mention that the dish includes onions (in fact it was mostly onions, besides the fish).

A disappointing standard breakfast meal: two eggs over-easy (not over-medium as ordered), a single piece of toast, three extra-large but chewy and tasteless bacon rashers (where’s the applewood-smoked?!), and some tasty potatoes. Not good value at $12.99.

My wife and I enjoy your restaurant very much and come quite often. The ambience and service are always great and food preparation almost always very good, (tho varies at times: we've found the salmon we often order for lunch sometimes a bit over cooked). Please keep up the very good work. We'll be back.

Great menu options and very good happy hour. We had an early dinner, enjoyed a cocktail and a couple of happy hour apps before the dinner menu started. Service was friendly and attentive, would definitely go back at some point. Food was fresh and high quality.

The waitress seemed to have forgotten we were there. She started strong and finished weakly. Overall, the food was good but the service was sub-par compared to previous visits. Next time, we'll question whether or not we should take the risk. Don't forget about the tables your attending, it's frustrating for the customer.

Unfortunately had a bad experience last night. We waited about 30 minutes before we had anything beyond water at our table. They brought our entrees out and for some reason the server left my wife's entree in front of a chair where no one was sitting and walked away; very strange. We waited so long that we just inhaled the food and left as soon as possible. Not sure if management changed or just under staffed for the night. We will probably wait for some time before coming back because we do like going there.

Sad to say, the food didn't taste very good on this Tuesday night visit. The clam chowder had too much flour, the caesar salad seemed off, my wife's tuna tartar was very bland. My crab cakes were pretty good--but that's not a very good batting average. We had much tastier food when we were there about 18 months ago.
Our waiter was very good, and comped the tuna tartar--which was the only dish we complained about. And they gave us a very good free birthday dessert--creme brule.

It was my dear friends birthday.
The waitress was not present and staff didn’t seem to work together. She never asked us if we needed anything , didn’t refill our waters or coffee. I had already gave her my cc and gave her a 20% tip. I think she had an off day?
Seemed like there was no one running the restaurant .

I have eaten at this restaurant several times. However, this latest meal was a disaster because of the service. None of the appetizers, side dishes, salads ever arrived. After a long wait our entrees appeared. Very unprofessional. Since there are so many choices in Boulder for dining, Spruce has definitely fallen off the list.

The place was half empty, took 10 mins just to be greeted in spite of 5 staff members milling about, not even a smile or happy new year. The open table app says dinner from 3 but they close the main kitchen 3-5 so only serve small plates. I showed them the app and they agreed to make us food from the full menu but it wasn’t easy.
The crab cakes, roasted sprouts, burgers and fries superb. The steak was under seasoned and the mussels were not warm and kind of rubbery. Lastly, the carpet in the area we sat in was gross, food under our feet felt dirty and put me, in particular off my food.
The server we got was actually great, but a low rating for service overall because of no greeting and the menu being unavailable to us at first and one staff member being unhelpful until our actual server came along and found a solution. Wouldn’t come back again.

Our waiter Dwayne was outstanding on New Years Eve. He switched our table from a crowded booth to a table for the 6 of us, the booth was way uncomfortable as we were packed in like sardines. It just wouldn’t do for him. He also went the extra mile to pull up a chair for our coats, as the coat rack for the restaurant was about to tumble to the floor on this very cold night in Boulder.

The service was incredible & the food was great! The trout, scallops, salmon & lamb were all a big success. All of his recommendations were excellent. All 3 couples were happy with their dining experience, and will go back again.
