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 tried to talk to management about this, but no one returned our calls or emails. We expected much more for the amount of money we were charged. We will not be returning to "The L".

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. They also offer an excellent wine selection. It's at an outdoor mall, but it has lovely ambiance. The bar is cozy and we sometimes enjoy just having apps there and/or pizza. They have a happy hour menu that goes all night with some very good and reasonable selections. The main restaurant is comfortable and nicely decorated. It has a resident owner/ operator that started this restaurant way back in the 80"s. For any restaurant to survive that long, it has got to have something going! Well worth a try!

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 - pepperoni and prosciutto - and THAT was phenomenal! Light and tasty, just the way they make it in Italy. The house red (Montepulciano) was excellent. All-in-all, we left with a VERY reasonable bill, a great pizza, and a couple of glasses of good wine. Great value, great service. We'll be back.
