Went to Greenbriar in Feb 2011, I was extremely disappointed. My wife and I ordered appetizers, dinner and deserts and only 2 of the 6 dishes were really good. Portion size was terrible, my wife's fillet was about 4oz. We eat out about 3 times a week and higher quality restaurants usually have smaller portions than your local Chili's but this was ridiculous. We made reservations about a month in advance and the table was ready when we got there. Decor was nice and the service was very good. I wish I could remember the server's name because she did a good job. But the food was only good and not great. 2 dishes were really good, 3 were ok and 1 was poor. When you walk out of a restaurant and spend $150 for a meal you expect to be impressed, that wasn't the case. If you want a nice restaurant in the Boulder area try Colterra in Niwot or the Flagstaff house.

This place has always been a favorite! The service is like nothing you find on pearl street or anywhere else in Boulder. Unrivaled wine list and delicious menu! The duck rendered crisp is the best I have ever had and the Caesar an attraction in itself! Nowhere else does a spectacular table-side preparation like the service staff here! Great for special occasions or just a nice place to catch up with some good friends and really dine.

In the past we have enjoyed our dining experience at the Greenbriar. This year it was a bit of a nightmare. The service was terrible; our server was unable to keep the drink orders straight, our food orders were confused and delivered to the wrong people, and in the end the food came at different times and it took a while before we all had our food. We all agreed the food was not very good. The spinach salad was tasteless and overwilted, the prime rib full of fat, and the desserts could easily have come from Safeway. Something has happened in the past year at this restaurant. The service and food quality does not match the price structure. I encourage you to take your dining dollars to a more deserving location.

THINK TWICE BEFORE YOUR NEXT VISIT!! Our last visit to the Greenbriar Inn was in 2009, and everything was wonderful. The food was amazing, high quality, and the dessert spectacular. However, we just went in Oct 2010 and they must have changed managers or chefs. The food was absolutely disgusting! Left with a really bad stomach ache. All the buffet items were luke-warm at best. Fish was overcooked. The lamb tasted really old. The buffet serving dishes were so close together that you had to wait several minutes just to get to the next food choice. The baked desserts were too dry to eat. Some made with cheap boxed jello pudding. Service was okay, but not what you'd expect. Hopefully they care enough about their restaurant to make some changes.

This is a great place to go for brunch. The buffet is always fantastic - hot, fresh and a great selection.

I always had the good image about Greenbriar before, but last time, I ate with my daughter there and they neglect us the whole time. We wanted to change the seat and nobody even came back and do nothing for us, then, the food was really normal too, plus they charge my 9 years old daughter the same price like me, so I left without tipping, she called me back to my house and left message asking for tips. I donot think I will ever go back there anymore.

Wait staff was pleasant, but very forgetful. Several things we requested never came. When I made the reservation I said we would be celebrating my husband's birthday and was assured they would make note of that. Along with our requests for a drink and some pepper, it was forgotten.

Pros: Mostly good food, well prepared

Cons: Caesar salad lackluster. Service poor.

I've always considered the Greenbrian Inn a special occasion restaurant, probably because they always treat you very special. They have a great menu and there is always something unusual or unexpected added to the mix. Definitely make reservations, it not the kind of place you can just walk in, and it's book most of the time. That should be a testament in itself as to how good the food is.

I just went to the Greenbriar recently for the first time in several years, and they have maintained excellent service and delicious food. The extent of their menu is amazing-- every dish has not only a unique main item, but it is accompanied by sides with a great blend of flavors, including unexpectedly delectable combinations, such as a spicy chocolate truffle. They have food I would never dream of dreaming up.
When we went to the Greenbriar, my mom was using a gift certificate from her birthday, and even though her birthday was a month before, they still brought out a mini creme brulee to mark the occasion.
Service is excellent, and they have all the nice little things that make the experience more special-- like palette-cleansing sorbet in between courses. Portions are fairly large for a fine restaurant, making it a fine value.

The elegant atmosphere is perfect for an intimate dining experience. I have been to this posh restaurant on several occasions and I have always had a wonderful experience.

This restaurant is in a beautiful location. We take visitors from out of town here for a special meal and a nice Colorado view. They have a good selection on the menu including game entrees that are done very nicely. The brunch is one of the best around.

The location, staff and food make this the best experience you can have. Our family tries to find an excuse to celebrate in order to go! Owner is always there making sure you are taken care of. Sat/Sun brunch is the best around.

Pros: Everything - Romantic Dinners or Family Get-togethers

Cons: It isn't free!

We had our wedding reception here and it was awesome. The food was excellant, the wine was amazing, and the service was top notch. The cordinator took care of everything and I was assigned a personal waitperson to get anything I needed. The interior and the grounds were beautiful and I didn't need to decorate at all! They also made our wedding cake and it was to die for! Love the place!

PROS: too many to list!
CONS: none

We had our wedding ceremony and reception here and were so impressed with the property, food and service that was provided to us. The view is great--it's nestled right at the base of Colorado's foothills. The only downside is its proximity to HWY 36, which means that you'll get traffic noise outside. The banquet staff is very laid-back and made me feel at ease. They were willing to accommodate special requests at no extra charge--like making signature drinks I created and specially decorating the cake. Overall a great experience.
