It was "OK". Our server was absolutely delightful. That said, I found the bacon-wrapped dates overcooked and the calamari somewhat wanting for depth of flavor. The scallops were firm and well-cooked. Overall, the price versus food ratio just didn't wow us. My wife and I emerged from the meal with a feeling that it was "good for NoBo", but wouldn't stand up to a more competitive location. Recommended if in the area, but not quite ready to be a destination restaurant.

This is a lovely place to dine. James is very welcoming and works hard to make your experience positive. The food is consistently delicious. I especially love the creative menu that changes often. The wine list has something for everyone and the cocktails are outstanding. I appreciate the effort that has been made during COVID to keep us safe and happy at this special restaurant.

Worth the drive! Date night was above & beyond expectations - exemplary service and top-notch menu. I ordered the veggie lasagna but I hate arugula so the chef topped it with sauteed mushrooms instead - perfect! My husband greatly enjoyed the lobster mac & cheese and the delicate calamari. Happy Hour drinks were a plus too!

This was our first dine-in in over a year. The tables were well spaced and the entrees all very good. The quinoa appetizer not. Fish and chips appetizer outstanding and large enough for a meal. Good variety for those on special diets.

4580 is still one of the best in Boulder, and relatively inexpensive and very casual for a first class restaurant. Nice variety of entrees but the apps are really special. We shared frites, grilled calamari and stuffed dates with our cocktails. Salads and NY strips were perfect. Only disappointment was they ran out of the creme brulee.

The food was decent. I do think that some of the items were under cooked. We got the seasonal risotto and then salmon. The salmon was cooked fine but the potatoes underneath were basically barely cooked, HUGE on the plate, and were not presented very well. The Chard mix, and the salmon had great flavor. Similar story with the risotto, the rice was excellent and was cooked well, but the mixture on top was cold, and it was either sitting in the window waiting for our salmon, or it was just placed on top without much thought to cook it through.

The carrot soup and quinoa fritters were amazing.

My wife and I ate there on Valentines evening for the three course and wine pairing meal and had a wonderful time.

The only detractor was they brought me a wrongly cooked filet initially (medium well instead of medium rare!). But the beet salad was delicious as was the poke tuna appetizer, the ravioli was very nicely done, and the cannoli and crème brulee were both prepared well.

Our server was pleasant, but not terribly engaging. The manager was quite nice and made a special visit to apologize about the filet mishap.

Would definitely go back.

Celebrated our anniversary here. Plenty of space between tables to feel safe dining in during covid. We had the dinner for 2 special: bacon-wrapped dates, new york strip, scallops, creme brulee & a bottle of cabernet -- all of which were absolutely delicious. We will be back :)
