We just went to Riff's two nights ago for Happy Hour, before the Nobel Literature Series at the Boulder Bookstore. We've been here before for dinner and were very pleased that their Happy Hour menu offered equally delicious small dishes. We ate too much! We can't wait to go back and try other dishes. Do try their truffle fries, the... More

Cauliflower with raisins and capers - very yummy! Salmon croquettes (croquet anyone?) - not a lot of salmon but delicious. Another time there I had potato gnocchi - tasty (but wish it was served with some a healthy side of goat cheese for protein balance). Potato soup -- weak flavors. Convenient Pearl Street walking mall location right next to the... More

What a great restaurant -- we had the brussel sprouts and hummus for appetizers, and they were amazing! My dinner was the gnocchi and it was fantastic. Also, very reasonably priced given the great food and perfect location on the Pearl Street mall.

Although we thought it served tapa type foods (it didn't) our party of four still very much enjoyed our meal. My husband and I had just arrived in Boulder to meet up with our University of Boulder enrolled daughter and her fiancé, and we wanted a nice restaurant with a booth that we could present an engagement gift. Riff's was... More

Was there with a group of work colleagues. We ordered a bunch of starters for the table. They were all great from Ahi Tuna to Brussels Sprouts. Fried Oysters were also very good. I had the Pork Fettuccine for main course. It was excellent. Service was also very good. I will be back.

Charming restaurant with an interestimg menu. Dined on their inclusive dinner but was a little disappointed. The service was ok but the meals were cold. I'll definately give them another try tho.

Wide variety menu of excellent food prepared with produce from local farmers . Good service. Not always easy to find parking around here so try the parking garage.
