The food was amazing, the service top-notch. Unfortunately John's has closed its doors. As far as I know there are no plans to relocate or reopen. I will update this review if I hear of anything new but I'm sorry to say that it looks...More

There arent many ethnic restaurants in Colorado. I've always looked at John's as authentic French cuisine, although they refer to it as Haute cuisine. (it is listed under traditional American food.) I think it is the attention to detail, like the sauces, that makes me...More

John's is pricey, but if you love great food and a fancy meal every once in a while, there is no better place to go! We've been several times and every time I love it more and more! It's a cute little house that's been...More

I can't believe this place doesn't rank higher, though it's the only upscale restaurant I visited in Boulder. The food was superbly planned, cooked, presented, and the wine pairings were excellent. (My husband knows a lot about wine and is reluctant to give up the...More
