Loved this place. We found it walking on Pearl Street and had a wonderful lunch. The food is interesting and pretty healthy. I highly recommend the small plate starters.

Really unique and interesting offerings of small plates. Between the two of us we sampled 7 different ones and most were quite good. Would not recommend the meatballs sadly but enjoyed the brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and some of the other evening specials. Nice wine selection...More

We had lunch at Riff's on our trip to Colorado. Pearl St is great and sitting outside at Riff's was a great opportunity to enjoy the atmosphere. The food was great and the waitress very friendly!

Nice for people watching on Pearl St. mall, good menu and great location. Can't remember what was there before, but this is a better replacement. Highly recommend as an anytime stop for late lunch.

Riff's is one of my favorite places on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder. Food is excellent and never disappoints! I take my foodie friends here and they are pleased. Great atmosphere and the waitstaff is very attentive and fun.

We enjoyed Riff's very much. Warmed Burrata, Gnocchi, and Kale Salad - all excellent. The Kale Salad was our favorite - fresh light dressing, perfect mix of ingredients - do not overlook this menu option! Service was great. We enjoyed sitting outside!
