    This place was probably one of my favorite restaurants so far I’ve been to in the Boulder area. The duck wings had an delicious sweet and savory sesame sauce on it, the Cesar salad can never go wrong with that, and the s’mores came out with a mini fire, and homemade gram crackers, really could not complain. There was a slight mess up in our reservation but the manager Dominic was super professional and helped us work through it, he communicated everything and overall was an amazing manager. Our waitress was Reese and she was an absolute sweetheart, super polite, friendly, and was always chatty when she’d come by. Overall the staff, food, and environment of river and woods was amazing, and I plan to go back for my next trip in Denver

    River and Woods is easily my favorite restaurant in Boulder right now. The experience is always amazing! The friendly staff, cozy and quaint atmosphere, and delicious entrees, have me planning my next visit back before even leaving the restaurant! I’ve been for both brunch and dinner (the trout is out of this world!). Such a gem of a spot. Highly recommend!

    The gnocchi with short rib was great, as were the brussel sprouts, polenta fries and bacon wrapped dates. Appetizer portions were miniscule, the waitress recommended getting multiple orders if we wanted to share. The place seemed a bit understaffed and couldn't do basic substitutions. We couldn't change out the sauce on a burger. My guest asked to switch out mashed potatoes with their roasted sweet potatos, they just said "no" and brought him two sausages in a puddle of sauce. It was pretty comical looking, and according to him, the driest sausage he'd ever had. The bitter green and apple salad came with a single, paper-thin mandolin slice of apple, but the trout is accompanied was good. The food is for the most part very good, but probably best avoided if you have dietary reactions or during very busy times.

    Overall this place is super cool looking and really makes you feel like you’re in a fine dining experience. Until you get the food. We got the duck wings which were exceptional, but really should be for $18 , for 5 wings. (Also came out quit slow for an appetizer ) We then ordered entrees and got the short rib with noodles, and then I got the chicken and waffles(which replaced the fried chicken on the menu). The noodles had very tough cooked mushrooms in them, and even before my date received her dish we saw the table next to us order it, and neither of them looked happy either, and it was barely touched. As well as my chicken and waffles was quite basic. The chicken was cooked great with some spice and well cooked , but the waffle was a “potato waffle” . The dish had no sweet component so it felt like I was simply eating chicken with a hash brown. Overall the taste was quite lacking for the price of the food. I feel like any chef tasting that dish would agree something is missing. Then we got the check, only to be a 20% fair wage” charge added to the bill automatically. Then a tip was even asked after that bill was paid , which is absolutely ridiculous. I would’ve maybe tipped 10% (if no fair wage charge had been added) because the server was quite nice and doing her best. But overall expensive , not well prepared food. Paying a bill of over $125 and not be satisfied with her food makes me not want to come back here ever.

    This place combines amazing food with the comfort of my own backyard. It's probably my favorite restaurant in Boulder now. The amazing staff give a chill vibe to a clean and semi-formal setting. All around, this place is just a wonderful experience- my wife and I will be back many times!
