excessive dress code.
We visited this restaurant on the warmest recorded day in Boulder, 105 degrees. We were attending a show at Chautauqua Ampitheatre at 7pm. We thought we would slip in when they began service. We offered to sit in the bar area, or anywhere that shorts may be less offensive to the other patrons that enjoyed suffering in record Boulder heat. Even though, we were among the only, less than 10, patrons, we were denied service. To the credit of the staff, they did envite us to try on some trousers that had been used by other guests.
I don't care how good the food may be, or the view might look, pretentious attitude will always send me in search of the great food and people that truly want you there, not your wardrobe. Enjoy all the great shows and performances at Chautauqua, the summer season is beautiful. Just enjoy one of the other great restaurants, and there are many, that respect the beauty of the mountains. I will send all my friends, and clients to the other great eateries in Boulder. But do drive up to see the view of the Flagstaff. There is a better view than the restaurant provides just before you reach the restaurant. No Charge. Also see a show at Chautauqua, or take a beautiful hike. Shorts allowed.
Wow, wow and wow. My wife and I are normal people. We go out to nice dinners two or three times a year (birthdays, anniversary). We both agreed that our dinner at the Flagstaff was the best dining experience either of us has ever had. I have no idea how anyone could be any less than blown away by this place, the service especially. Our waiter (a really tall guy named Zach) could not have been more helpful or accomodating, and our sommelier recommended a wine that was both very affordable (at least by Flagstaff standards) and delicious. The attentiveness of the enture waitstaff makes you feel like you are a member of high society. The food quality was superb. The lobster soup was the best bowl of soup I've ever eaten. The only mistake we made was ordering too much food, because they are constantly bringing you complimentary samples from the chef. We wanted so badly to order dessert, but our stomachs couldn't take any more...until they brought us out a small complimentary portion of mango panna cotta, which we gobbled up. Do yourself a favor and for your next special occasion reserve a table at the Flagstaff...you'll be glad you did.
Not vegetarian friendly.
If you are vegetarian you might as well choose a different restaurant to dine.
No options for vegetarians. Besides, they had Foie Gras in their menu - unbelievable! ..with all the information available nowadays on the cruelty behind foie gras.
Not worth it!
This renowned Flagstaff Mountain restaurant offers breathtaking views and food..
The Great Plains sprawl below, and as the sun fades, the lights of Boulder begin to twinkle. Tiered seating allows a stellar view from any table. The chef changes the European-inspired menu daily, modifying sauces and dishes based on the freshest seasonal ingredients. Flagstaff's legendary rack of lamb falls from the bone and the buffalo filet mignon and foie gras Wellington in a black truffle sauce is an ultra-rich indulgence.
Perhaps the Best. I have enjoyed dinner at the Flagstaff House on a few occasions, one of which was perhaps the best dining experience that I have ever had. We were seated by windows that opened out over the mountain, and as the evening turned we enjoyed drinking amazing wine and a watching an absolutely beautiful thunderstorm over the plains. The price is fair for what you get, as what you get is near perfection. A great plus is that the staff has never been pretensions--"the customer is always right" reigns here.
Beautiful. The experience is always wonderful, the service is always fantastic, and the food is scrumptious. I have had some of the best dining experiences I have ever had at the Flagstaff house. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The atmosphere is second to none, especially in the summer. You should try their appetizers on their outdoor patio; nothing beats it.
One of the best!. Flaggstaff House is simply one of the best places to have dinner in Colorado. Excellent food, professional service, incredible wine list, terrific view of Boulder. Comes with a healthy price tag, but for a special dinner it's well worth it.
Ask the guys that really cook!. The Flagstaff House in Boulder Colorado has the most exciting view, the best food and service without any doubt or hesitation! John Matson, Trained Chef.
