Two thumbs up for Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant! Great food, atmosphere and service. I highly recommend a stop here. I wish I lived in Boulder--this place would be a regular for me!

Early dinner at the Leaf. Greeted by a friendly hostess and seated immediately while waiting for two friends to arrive. The menu is varied and there is a special happy hour menu. The prices are reasonable and the portions will meet your appetite. The wait persons are friendly and knowledgeable. Look for a large leaf sculpture on the outside wall... More

It was so fun to enjoy the flavor creations here. Nothing typical on this menu. We ordered an avocado app, but the waitress misunderstood us and brought cauliflower tacos. They looked and smelled so good, we asked her to add them to our order and bring us the avocado dish. Turns out, the tacos were our favorite taste of the... More

Drove through Boulder on my way to Denver and stopped here for lunch. Immediately did not feel welcome or that the staff felt a little too good for us but stayed anyway. I ordered the Jamaican Jerk Tempeh which was AMAZING! So flavorful, beautiful, and good! My husband ordered the reuben. It was not good. The complete opposite of mine.... More

This is quite refined and creative. I love the natural lighting and interior theme. One of the most satisfying vegetarian meals I've had in a long time! Everything I tried was very good but the buffalo cauliflower tacos are brilliant. Going back to try the rest of the menu..yes all of it.

As a vegan for 15 years, I have had a couple good meals at Leaf and a couple awful meals here. I've never had anything that I would say is fantastic. My last meal at Leaf was for happy hour and we ordered a flatbread pizza with a pea puree and we were served a cold, soggy, pizza with what... More

Fantastic place! It can be so hard trying to find good vegetarian dishes or restaurants and Leaf does a great job. Nice small dining room, quiet atmosphere which I love. Food is truly amazing. I've had the spaghetti Pad Thai, Jambalaya Rice and a Ramen dish and I have loved all of them. Great cocktails and wine selection. Wonderful date... More

Overall, I would recommend this restaurant, especially if you are vegetarian! The food is generally very good and the selection is good. Note, however, that some of the food is definitely better than others. I recently had dinner there with a group of 4. Two of us thought their food was great, two of us thought it was just average....

I've been going to the Leaf every so often for years. Mostly the experience had been an okay meal I suffered for the benefit of a vegetarian companion. No longer. They've perfected their menu. The soups are particularly wonderful.

For vegetarians, meat-eaters also can find lots to eat. The cauliflower special was fantastic. Not always even quality. Nice late happy hour.
