Stopped in to Boulder on a sunny Sunday evening after a hike in Rocky Mountains. Thought we would try our luck with the #1 resto in Boulder. Pearl St was hopping busy and we were not surprised to be told it would be 45 mins. However they could immediately offer full service at the long granite bar, so we went for that, which was fine. The service was efficient and friendly. Curiously six tables remained empty all the time we were eating.
We shared the Brussels sprout starter which was amazing, with nuts and onions. The duck confit was excellent with roasted cauliflower on the side. The pork chop was also very good, charred and spiced on the outside but not overcooked. Portion size was good, neither huge nor scanty.
With one glass of excellent Durango IPA the bill came to $52 which seemed very reasonable for the quality and location .

Though we all liked (not loved) the items we ordered (Mussels were great), the service was not what we are used to. We planned on sharing all the items we ordered, but all arrived at the same time instead of spaced out as they usually do. Also we were never asked if we wanted a second round of drinks, which means we didn't spend much time or money at the restaurant.

Late lunch of Flat bread and Shrimp pasta turned out to be $50 with 2 glasses of wine $11 each.... The pasta was a bit salty and the flat bread was tough. The casing on the salami really needs to be removed.

We decided to eat at Riff's because it was rated number one on Trip Adviser. It was a great dining experience. The food was creative and delicious. The service was perfect. We sat outside and enjoyed the people watching. I wish there was a restaurant like this near my home in New Jersey.

Riff's is one of my favorite places in Boulder. I can always count on the food to be excellent and the service to be good. I think it's reasonably priced, especially for a place on Pearl Street. Was there with a friend last week. i had the pork loin dish which was delicious and had a little kick. My friend had the beet salad with salmon added to it. She loved what she ordered. And we shared a lemon dessert that was just the perfect ending to the meal. Because the weather was so good, we ate dinner outside where we could watch the activity on the street - an added bonus. Riff's is definitely a place to check out.
