I hosted my mother's surprise birthday brunch here and was not disappointed. The service was excellent, and the brunch spread provided plenty of choices for our group with varied tastes and dietary needs. A gorgeous setting for moments to be cherished!

It’s worth the quick drive from Boulder (and Denver) to dine at the Greenbriar. Staff is welcoming and personable. Dinner was very delicious and presentation a work of art. Bar or formal dining—same friendliness and high quality food. It’s a habit to go every time...More

They clearly want to make this a high-end restaurant experience but they missed. The helpings were tiny, the food itself was OK. The service was missing in details (how many times should we have to say "no glutten" or "no ice in the water please"?)...More
