We stumbled upon this spot using OpenTable. Our original destination had a long wait and this was Plan B. What a nice surprise! We had mussels for appetizer then entrees pork shank and lamb collar ragout. All excellent. The service was great too!

The trout was outstanding and I also loved the sweet potato mash. The quality of the food and the atmosphere were well worth the price of dinner.

Great food and service.. multiple round of drinks, appetizers, and entrees for 2 was less than $100 out the door. Good place for a high end evening for less than high end price

We got great service. The waitress was very friendly. My wife and I ordered cocktails that were delicious. I got the rib eye and asked to switch the potatoes for rice and they were very accommodating. My wife got the tuna. Both were cooked correctly and the sauce on the cabbage that comes with the tuna was incredible.

Overall, we were very happy and would recommend.

The fish unfortunately tasted nothing close to fresh. The meals were both relatively bland. The flavors that did come through were less than appetizing. Both meals were particularly underwhelming for the price point and, sadly, this meal did not leave us wanting to come back. At least the wine was good.

The fish was not of high quality and tasted extremely fishy. There was no seasoning and was overall bland. The fries were good but the Fish n Chips would never be ordered again if I had to return.

I love taking friends and newcomers to the Boulderado (and to the restaurants) because the hotel itself is such a treat for the eyes. People have ideas about what Boulder is like, but the history and traditions of the town are just embedded in the Boulderado and its antiques. I love that the porch at Spruce and Fish is so cozy, and of course, the food is delicious. It's a great value for the quality, and the service also is impeccable.

The location of Spruce Farm and Fish is a classic in Boulder - in the Hotel Boulderado. I've been going there since the late 1970s, through various iterations. The current version is the best so far. The food and service has improved to the point where this eating there is a real treat. And, if you have visitors from out of town staying at the Boulderado, it's convenient in the extreme. Strongly recommended.

Every time I have gone there the food has been very consistent with a good value. The wait staff has always been friendly and the atmosphere is nice for an old western hotel.

Great to visit a restaurant that scores high on all categories, especially being able to carry on a nice quiet conversation.

My favorite bar in Boulder. Elegant, yet relaxed.

This has become one of my favorite not-quite-so-discovered restaurants in the Pearl Street Mall vicinity. I can almost always get a reservation and have ALWAYS enjoyed my meal.

The food was amazing as always. It is always clean and great food!
The service was horrible, our waitress never came over to say hello. We had to ask for water and coffee, she wasn’t attentive, we had to ask for cream many times. She didn’t seem like she was aware of what was going on.
I was embarrassed I recommmended the restaurant . I work around the corner. I go to the corner bar at least once a month. I will stay them. Always great all around service.

I ordered salmon, and was not asked how I like it cooked - it came to me overcooked. The seared greens were too salty, but the mashed potatoes were divine. So, all in all, I think the food is overpriced. I made the reservation with a birthday celebration noted, and the waitress didn't know about the birthday, so we asked if we could have a birthday dessert included, which she was happy to do. She should have known about the birthday. ....
I have lived in Boulder for 25 years, and have had many meals both in the main dining room and Corner Bar. This was the first time at The Spruce Farm and Fish. I was not impressed, and will probably not return.
