We have family in Boulder and love to visit Riffs! The service is wonderful and every dish we have is always fresh and delicious. There are also lots of options, so you can order a full meal or share plates and try everything. The grilled avocado is one of our favorite appetizers - it's a perfect balance of fresh and rich - definitely a must-order! Also, be sure to try the specials - one of our favorite dishes ever were some buffalo wings with honey that my husband still talks about!
My sister and I send gift cards for our anniversaries to restaurants. 2 years ago I sent her to Riff's and they said it was amazing. This year I was thanking her for her pick (I live in Florida) and she brought up Riff's and again saying how great it was. I took the hint and will be sending her back to Riff's this year. We will defiantly try Riff's next time to Colorado.
I love this dish! When my friends and I come to Riffs, we split lots of small plates and this one is always included. I love the different flavors that work so well together. If you've never had burrata or love burrata, you won't be disappointed.
I love arugula, so I was excited to see this as a lunch special. I ended up ordering this with a chicken on the side as my protein. I must say, the arugula did not disappoint, the dressing was fitting for the salad. The only thing I would change is not adding the chicken. Sorry guys, it was just plain chicken breast grilled, there wasn't really any flavor to it. I thought it would've brought my salad to life, but it did fine without the chicken. Thank you again.
All the food and drinks here are amazing! We always go! Everyone is lovely, attentive and it's always a fantastic experience.
The warmed burrata is one of my favorites. I've ordered this before as my appetizer but the portion size is large enough to make this an entire meal. The slow roast tomatoes are delicious and I'm typically someone who doesn't enjoy tomatoes so you know it's good.
The pimenton flavor is excellent and the relish that comes on top of it is awesome. I also really enjoyed the buttery and flavorful potatoes underneath!
Love the happy hour offerings here and the cedar plank salmon is cooked to perfection!
The fried chicken and whiskey pairing was incredible. The chicken was crispy without having the usual greasy or fried feel or taste. It was crunchy on the outside but unbelievably moist and delicious on the inside. Everything we have at Riffs is always delicious and well prepared. I feel like Riff's delivers a 5-star experience at a 3-star price and will be coming back for years to come!
One of my favorites. I almost always get it.
not sure if it was lunch, happy hour or dinner? but it was the best one I ever had :) and french fries were stupendous
Divine dining experience! My husband and I happened upon Riffs by accident walking down the ped mall. All of the dishes were inventive, flavorful, and fresh, and left us in a state of happy euphoria. Service was friendly and impeccable. We go back every time we visit family in Boulder. Our favorite!!!

Perfect blend of flavor and fresh ingredients! You must try this.
I took a friend to Riff's for a birthday lunch. We decided to try their daily special which was a curried sole with green beans and potatoes. It was absolutely delicious! The lemon cheesecake was also excellent! The wait staff were friendly and upbeat. The restaurant was cool and relaxing.
I love the inventiveness at Riffs. My favorite restaurant in Boulder. The Salmon is lovely.
Riff's mussels are absolutely to die for! Being originally from the east-coast, I'm typically not a fan of seafood in this landlocked state however Riff's mussels are soooo delicious. They're are fresh and really generous in size. Also, the sauce they come in is so good I could eat it with a spoon (in fact I often do!) The staff is really accommodating and can offer suggestions if you're unable to eat the awesome bread that comes with the mussels. I appreciate this as well since I'm gluten-free. Do yourself a favor and try these mussels next time you're unsure of what you want to order. You won't be disappointed!
artichokes "bagna cauda"
The whipped blue cheese with the wings is a nice touch! These were flavorful and juicy. I would definitely get these again!
smoked red trout
Amazing! If you're looking for a Boulder treat, this is your stop. This little hole in the wall is a gem! It's not just food, it's an experience.
This is my FAVORITE meal here! Whenever I get a chance to go out to eat, I suggest Riff's because of the gnocchi. Made with seasonal vegetables, it's the perfect portion to fill me up. Add a side of prosciutto, you'll love it!
Best burgers we have ever had, period. We were in Boulder for vacation last week from CT, we travel quite a bit and don't usually swing back to a restaurant a second time but had to bring our local friend back as we were raving about the burgers so much, now she is in love also. Quality was phenomenal, staff was just as good. Cant wait to get back to Boulder just for these burgers! (BTW, the guy at Prana clothing on the corner recommended you, we always ask for restaurant referrals when we travel)
