Westword's Description

The building that's home to this dining stronghold overlooking Boulder was erected as a cabin in the 1920s, then became a restaurant a decade later. When Don Monette purchased the place in 1971, he refined it into a world-class, high-end dinner destination. But time has hardly stood still at the Flagstaff House. In 1985, Don's son, Mark Monette, returned to Boulder to helm the kitchen at his family's restaurant, and he's been there ever since, working tirelessly to keep the kitchen on the cutting edge. Although today the decor still smacks of a late-'90s remodel, the menu is as fresh and interesting as it's ever been, integrating both European and Japanese influences into a seamless, multi-coursed fine-dining experience that's heightened by impeccable service and a wine list that is both broad and (20,000 bottles) deep.

    With fun/exotic food to boot. A good wine list and romantic setting pave the way for any chump to seem like a fat cat, just don't be stingy on tipping the valet since parking on a mountain is a true skill.

    One of the fanciest place in Boulder and overlooks the city on Flagstaff mountain. Has been a Boulder institution for years and you should go there for a very special occasion.

    Get the cheese plate! Such a good value for your money and sooo good!

  • Grace B. on 06/05/12

    Love their iPad wine list (sporting close to 12,000 bottles in their wine cellar)! Opt for dessert and a cocktail or glass of wine on the patio in the Summer. View over Boulder is awesome.
