First time to John's. Small unassuming place from the exterior with a somewhat of location. Don't let the exterior or the location keep you from going. Quaint, intimate late 1800's building which is old for Boulder or anywhere in Colorado. Started with an excellent waiter Taylor who was attentive without being intrusive. The appetizer called Apple Stilton Pecan salad was fantastic. Great flavor. The other appetizer was an asparagus dish that was good but not fantastic. They give you a free soup - ours was some kind of curried soup but it was served lukewarm. Probably would have been great if it was hot. Dinner consisted of kona ahi and diver scallops with coconut rice and a lime curry sauce. The diver scallops were my favorite part of the meal. The flavors of this dish were great. They all worked so well together. The Ahi was served perfect as well. The other dinner was a ribeye steak that was good but again not excellent. We split a dessert of wild cherries which was probably the absolute best dessert I have ever had -- the combination of what they offer for this dish (you can find it on their website) works so well together if you eat it the right way (think of it as a layering process) that you'll think you died and went to heaven. It's that good. They have an adequate wine list with some excellent choices. This restaurant is pricey but it's probably about as good as you will get anywhere in the world. If you've been thinking of going, just do it.
