Pre-race fuel before the Bolder Boulder. The service was fantastic. We made reservations for a group of 18, and had an awesome server. The food was outstanding. The Polenta Boulder is a must try and the lamb special was amazing.

Dined as a couple. Started with the caesar and caprese salads. The caesar was dressed in olive oil and came with little cheese. It didn't taste like a caesar - quite frankly it had no taste. The caprese was very small and tasted "ok". The...More

Ordered the ravioli alla zucca. It was so salty I could not eat more than a few bites. The bread was delivered to us as if it was thrown on the plate. The staff was very unprofessional. Our salads had wilted lettuce. I can't understand...More

Do not go here if you're a large group (13 of us). It took the kitchen over an hour to get our food to us. Three people ordered the same dish, but there was no consistency in them. The waiter pretty much ignored us. We...More

Dinner at "The L" (as it is now called) was absolutely wonderful. The wait staff was very nice (though understaffed), the atmosphere was energetic, and the food spectacular. The filet was so tender that it could be cut with a fork.

I love this place! I think you will too. It's been in Boulder a long time, and is a mainstay favorite for many locals. They have a very good wide range menu from great wood oven pizza and apps to delicious sea bass for $28.00....More

It's fine, really. Somehow though it isn't ever memorable. The service is great, the food is great, I think they need a signature something.

Dropped by for a snack and a glass of wine. The service was great every step of the way, from the greeter to the wait staff. The appetizers were small in size, but tasted ok (Calamari / salami). We decided to order a pizza -...More
