L'Atelier is the restaurant of a talented chef who is now planning to have a restaurant in Denver and Boulder, I believe. My last dinner at the restaurant in Boulder suggests that his attention is on the one in Denver only. I had the lobster...More

Interesting menu, delicious food and wine, very nice ambience, consistently excellent. Service can be a bit spotty. In my three trips to this restaurant that I find serves the best food in Boulder, my waiters have ranged from superb to verging on haughty.

This is always one of our go to restaurants if we want to impress someone. It is an intimate quieter restaurant. The owners have an incredible wine selection. The food is always outstanding.

L'atelier is definitely at the top of my list when I'm in Boulder. As others have said, it isn't one of the trendy places in Boulder, which is blessed with many excellent restaurants. It is, however, one of the best meals - shall we say...More
