I think it's 4 -1/2 stars I think there are a few little hiccups on the execution, otherwise would be five stars. We had the Caesar salad and they overdressed one of the three salads. Pool of salad dressing at the bottom. But the other two were very very good. Cocktails were good, not great. But they had potential since the ingredients were spot on. The gnocchi also very good They shined on the starters. There was a sweet potato that was glazed with something sweet and cut in quarters. Some other delicious spices added in there that made it taste fantastic. I don't see it on the menu now when I look online. We also had brussel sprouts (not on menu today) which was equally as creative and good. Yummy..
We had dinner there last night and were eager to dig into our leftovers today!! We got a little bit of everything to try and it was all delicious-bison burgers, Mac and cheese, duck wings, cornbread. Nothing made it passed Day 2 even though their portions are generous 😋 Quite the romantic and private atmosphere, shocked to get that somewhere in Boulder!
Great place for dinner. I got the gnocchi and it was so delicious. I also loved the ambiance and set up of the restaurant. The drink menu was also super interesting, I got the cherry margarita and it was so tasty!! Duck wings were also delicious as an appetizer. Can’t wait to come back and try more!
Total hidden gem!! If you are in the area I would HIGHLY recommend making a reservation (Shout out to Nate our server). We stopped in for drinks and starters and we were not disappointed (Shout out to the chef and bartender who I didn't get to thank for the meal and drinks). If you are only on Pearl St. for the Mall definitely make it a point to head east on Pearl until you find this little blue house nestled between buildings. The atmosphere is amazing. While you may be traveling to Boulder to check off the things on your tourist list, the staff, food, and atmosphere at River & Woods will keep you coming back.
Great food, the corn bread was particularly good. Fun setting, we sat in the garden area at the rear which was nicely laid out and we could watch them smoking the meat. Very friendly service. Would have been 5 stars but for the way the Fair Pay charge was done. A 20% charge is automatically added to the check which then goes to all the staff. This is a great idea, but it was not mentioned on the menu or by our server and I only noticed it because I always review the check. After seeing the charge I noticed a small laminated flyer under the check which explained the Fair Pay charge. When the credit card slip came there was the normal space for a tip. It’s a great idea but some clearer and upfront communication would have been appreciated.
