My husband had looked this place up to try our first night out here. The atmosphere was warm and modern. Our server was a blast. Beer was good. Food was great. I’d recommend this place for couples or a few friends.

Love coming here for lunch! Just a quick walk down. Their Lemonade is a great non-alcoholic option. Very happy with service and the food is excellent!

Came to Riffs after realizing the restaurant we intended to go to is closed for the holiday... but we definitely found a gem! I rarely give 5 stars for review, but when I do — it means it’s really great! The atmosphere was great for couples or small group dinner. The waiter recommended “Hindsight 20/20” (red wine) for us and it was simply marvelous! There’s complexity and it has a great aroma. Their food goes beyond amazing! We ordered steam mussels, roasted carrot salad, lemon and thyme chicken, and grill Hawaiian Ono. Each dish was a perfection to me. Their pumpkin creme brûlée with ginger adding the spice and texture was a great surprise. I am really tempted to come back again when I return to Boulder in 2 weeks!
