Frasca Food and Wine
Birthday CelebrationWas an exceptional night with delicious food, service and ambience. Boulder is very luck to have such a gem. Wonderful!!! Our server, Brianna, was incredible, with such a knowledge of all things Frasca, and was patient with answering all our questions regarding the menu and offering suggestions; it made our night much more than just dinner -- it was an incredible memory to carry with us.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA delicacy in Boulder!Wonderful artisan crafted food delicacies.

I recommend Monday nights for the tasting menu and wine program!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely FabulousThe food was incredible. The service was amazing. The knowledge our server showed of the wines she served was impeccable.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenalThe staff could not be more knowledgeable/friendly, providing helpful suggestions all the way through our dinner.
Extensive, well-rounded wine list.
We did the quattro piatti and it was well worth it. The gnocchi and quail were particularly noteworthy - one of the best meals I have had in a long time. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone; it's a wonderful special occasion/date night spot.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in the USFrasca could be one of the best restaurants in the US. Every time I go, if it is possible, it gets better. Everything about it is beyond top notch. The menu is creative but not over the top. I can never decide what to eat because the selections are all mouth watering. It is truly a gem. Worth a trip to Boulder!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMonday tasting menuReally enjoyed the Monday tasting menu. All courses were delicious--Complex and interesting without being fussy. Serving staff was professional, but friendly and helpful. We'll be back--6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingTop to bottom great service, fantastic food and just a fine dining experience. Worth the price.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING!!Had the best time at Frasca! The service, the food and the wine were top notch. A must try!!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the TripOn a road trip from Washington to Omaha we decided to take a detour just to eat at Frasca on a tip from a chef/friend. Frasca did not disappoint. Service was on par with the likes of Chicago power-houses Tru & Alinea (no joke). Wine parings were spot on and our server even had a special menu printed for us to take home to commemorate our dinner.
I had super high expectations for the food and overall it almost hit them. To be critical; one of our pasta courses was simply over salted, no two ways about it, the black rice on the "Agnello" was bland/flavorless, & the swordfish was simply dry & overcooked. Remember I'm was being critical. Other than that the meal was great and I'll be recommending more Nebraskans make the trip to Frasca.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Lost Art Of Dining...Found.It's been a really long time (if ever) that I have had a meal and service as exceptional as my experience here. The service was seemless and unobtrusive. Every course surpassed my expectations from the preconceived notions I had when I read the menu. Presentation was impeccable. I think they were in the kitchen with tweezers placing each garnish.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!We had tried several times to get a reservation without success but somehow we hit it right one evening. It was wonderful! It was our wedding anniversary and they were wonderful to us. Very special!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in BoulderWe went to Frasca to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, and the experience couldn't have been better! The food was out of this world -- delightful flavors; creative dishes; cooked to perfection. The service was very attentive without being imposing or pretentious in any way. The atmosphere was just right for a special occasion -- quiet enough for table conversation while still a part of the overall ambience of the restaurant. We can see why Frasca is consistently rated #1 in both Boulder and Denver!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWOWI just don't know how they do it. They hit it out of the park every time. It's spooky.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM'Phenominal'The food, wine and service were impeccable. The flavors of the food were quite delightful and the wine pairing was outstanding. It was simply phenomenal!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMNot sure what all the fuss is aboutLovely meal, but wondering if it lives up to the hype. Wasn't impressed by the service at all--very slow.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an amazing meal. CongratulatAlways an amazing meal. Congratulations to all for winning the James Beard award! Colorado is lucky to have a restaurant of this calibre.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were very well taken careWe were very well taken care of and the flavors of the foods were wonderful.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing - one of a kindFrasca is the kind of restaurant where you find yourself saying, "this is the best...(xyz) I have ever eaten" several time throughout your meal. If you love food, Frasca is a must experience.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile always good, much ofWhile always good, much of the food doesn't always live up to the status (and price) that Frasca has in Boulder. It is also limiting to not have a full menu available to diners at this price.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've eaten at Frasca manyWe've eaten at Frasca many times and always have an amazing time. The food is outstanding, savoring every bite. The wait staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable and the wine list is unmatched in Boulder.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredibly great...as usualWe don't go to Frasca often, let's admit it, it is expensive. But that said, we seem to return here for special occasions at least once or twice a year. And this year they remembered us and the last time we were there.
You are greeted and made to feel so special. Service is outstanding. Wine selection superb. (I actually had a cocktail before dinner.) Never rushed. I think we were there about 2.5 hours. Fixed prices, $78/person four course dinner. Felt full, if not stuffed when we left. Presentation outstanding. And of course the food incredible. I am not going to mention what we ate, but just recommend it is all so fantastic. Well, maybe Frasca isn't that expensive when I compare it to places in Chicago, Dallas, NYC and probably Denver.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressive and unique.Impressive and unique. Food was excellent and the wine list and guidance on it was great.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive but fun!Having lived in Boulder for almost seven years, I'd always wanted to try Frasca. I'd always heard rave reviews and talk of Beard Medals and Michelin ratings. Finally, my wife and I took the plunge for our 9th anniversary. The service was incredible. I was afraid it would feel stuffy but it was the complete opposite. The wait staff actually made the experience fun! We needed to be walked through the menu. The food was familiar. The portions were just right. We'll definitely be going back maybe for a Monday night wine pairing menu!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways superbNever disappointed; food and wine pairings spot on. Expensive but they earn the premium with attentive but not pesky service. Bobby Stucky always finds time to visit each table and chat. He's hands on all aspects of the operation.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Experience!Everything about our dining experience at Frasca's was outstanding. The atmosphere, the service and of course the food were all exceptional. I just wish we lived closer so we could enjoy Frasca's more often. Maybe Bobby would consider opening something in Dallas. We would lead the parade if that happened.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExtraordinaryI travel regularly, and about once a year, I find a restaurant that is extraordinary. Frasca is once in a decade. First and last, because of the attention to detail, was the service. The maitre d', servers and sommelier were all professional, attentive and well qualified. The second, third, fourth and fifth, yes I ordered the Quattro Piatti, were the most memorable courses I have ever enjoyed. I will not bias the reader with the specific dishes since I was one of a party of six, and each of us would attest that theirs was the best item on the menu. I can not wait until my travels bring me back to Boulder to enjoy Frasca again.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic. Everything wasFantastic. Everything was perfect. I don't know how they keep it perfect but they do.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways totally fabulous.Always totally fabulous. One feel like an honored guest. My only wish would be more non meat options.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA memorable eveningWe visited Frasca recently for the first time upon the recommendation of several friends. The food, presentation, and service were exceptional. My son-in-law is lactose intolerant and our waitress took time to explain in detail which items on the menu contained dairy and which ones could or could not be modified to accommodate him. Close attention was paid to his selections throughout the evening by several people to make sure he was aware if something contained the slightest bit of dairy. The four course tasting menu was very well-rounded and offered us the opportunity to sample a greater variety of the creative and delicious food offered by the chef.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating a graduation.We were celebrating a graduation. It was the perfect evening, and very special. I know we will remember it for a long time. Not to mention everyone is so jealous of us for getting a reservation! This is a tough restaurant to get into, and it was so worth the wait. The wait staff is amazing, and the food worth all of hype. Thank you Frasca for making this a memorable evening.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAn experience to share with friendsFrasca was just the right place to celebrate our anniversary. The food was an experience transporting us out of Boulder for the moment. The attention we received was special and welcoming. The Prefix selections were worth the cost. The multiple amazing menu items were all well prepared - we shared which doubled our pleasure. Not too much food, so you can make it through and enjoy with a bottle of wine from their amazing selections. A place to take your time.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFraca was incredible and livedFraca was incredible and lived up to our expectation. The attention to detail was impeccable; the service friendly and prompt. Highly recommend it,especially for a special occasion.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was the highlight.The service was the highlight. The food was good overall but didn't meet the hype. The salumi was excellent as we're the appetizers. However, the pasta, mains, & dessert all fell a bit flat in the end. Still it was good and a fun experience.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints. It is greatNever disappoints. It is great for a special occasion,but pricey for frequent meals.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Frasca manyWe have been to Frasca many times and on our last few visits, the food has been inconsistent...sometimes fabulous, and sometimes uninspired. We had dinner at Frasca 4/18 and the appetizers and pasta dishes (the gnocchi was particularly divine) were excellent, but our entrees (two fresh fish dishes) were both overcooked and under-flavored (my husband's fish was even gritty). When the server asked how we were enjoying the entrees and we told her we were disappointed, she offered no reconciliation or apology -- just a shrug. Despite the dull and overcooked fish dishes, the rest of the evening was lovely and as always, we felt welcomed and well attended-to by Bobby Stucky and the staff.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is always outstandinThe restaurant is always outstanding. We went for one of the wine tasting Mondays and probably will not get the wine tasting option again. We have done this a couple of times and the "tastes" are quite scant for the price. One would think three courses, three glasses but that is not the case here. I have been given larger portions by bartenders to see if I liked something before ordering a whole glass!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMJust perfect. The food isJust perfect. The food is amazing and beautifully presented. The service is top notch - so knowledgeable and welcoming. This is the best restaurant in the state.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy fiancee and I dined hereMy fiancee and I dined here after he proposed to me. Everything was top-notch. We felt like VIP's from the minute we walked in the door. He made a note on the reservation on open table that we were celebrating our engagement, and everyone in the restaurant knew and congratulated us. We also received complimentary champagne and an appetizer. The service was outstanding and we had everything our way. The wine list was spectacular and the staff knew every detail about the food and wine. We never felt rushed. It made the perfect ending to the perfect day, we both give our highest recommendation and will be back!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb!Exemplary service with outstanding food. Second time there and we couldn't be happier. I wish the decor were a little warmer, but the attention from our servers more than made up for it.

We were treated like royalty. The price is very high.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the Chef's table for a treatThis visit featured a seat at chef's table in the kitchen, where a well orchestrated team produces the unique food that keeps building Frasca's reputation. Each of the line chefs who prepared my four course dinner came over to talk about their dish to make sure I enjoyed it. I never miss an opportunity to dine with Lachlan and Bobby at their special restaurant in Boulder. You shouldn't either!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFrasca is most notably BoulderFrasca is most notably Boulder Colorado's finest restaurant. The cuisine is remarkably and amazingly unique with a special designer taste. Totally delectable cuisine just doesn't do this world famous restaurant justice. The co-owner is a rare Master Sommelier with a master personality to match. Yes, the service is impeccable and unpretentious. My husband and I chose Frasca to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and will treasure each moment and each designer taste. As a farewell, we were presented with a genuine Magnolia leaf that had inscribed in icing the # 20 along with lots of hearts that is usually presented as a Birthday Leaf. If this experience were on Broadway we would have given it a standing ovation.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second time atThis was our second time at Frasca. Visiting friends in Boulder, we wanted to thank them for a great weekend, Frasca hit the spot. We all had the fixed price menu but tried different options on the menu. All were delicious. Service was terrific, just the right amount of attention and never felt rushed. We had different wines suggested as we worked our way through the courses and were happy with all the recommendations. We will go back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA superb evening. We wereA superb evening. We were treated as if we were weekly guests that were greatly appreciated. And it's always been this way from the first time years ago when we walked in off the street and they graciously were able to sit us. It's easily the finest restaurant in Colorado, and certainly one of the top ten in the states.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA superb dining experience.A superb dining experience. Perhaps the best in Colorado. Innovative and extremely well executed cuisine. The best service I've encountered anywhere in the U.S. One of the most interesting wine lists. The food and wine are based on the Friulli region, but this is really a foody paradise.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal everThey transform ingredients into something exceptional. And the service is beyond perfection. This is by far my favorite place for a special occasion.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
