Daily pairing menus give our sommeliers ample opportunity to dip into the 400+ selection cellar. The restaurant's wine list places the great wines of the world side-by-side with small, off-the-beaten-path producers from lesser-known regions.
Hand-crafted, seasonal cocktails featuring artisanal spirits & local ingredients show the talent of our professional mixologists who make our bar spring to life.
The Black Cat has a lively, warm atmosphere in its intimate dining room. It is located in the heart of Boulder, CO, just off the historic Pearl Street Mall.
Tasting Menu with wine pairings is amazing!! Pricey, but worth it.
Fabulous meal all around!!!! The Bison was cooked perfectly and all other things tried were flavor explosions. Always enjoy this place!
While pricey, the tasting menu was completely worth it. The premium wine pairings were outstanding
Amazing food, service, and experience! This restaurant knows what they're doing!
Great as usual. Excellence from the greeting at the door to seating to service and the food. A good hunk of money but great value for what is offered
We've been multiple times and each time the food and the staff out-do the last visit.
Chef's tasting with wine pairing was Fantastic. An exquisite treat. Highly recommend for special occasions or just to spoil someone. Plan on at least a couple hours of culinary pampering.
Everything was incredible. Go with the chef’s menu. Amazing creative taste shattering surprises await you. We added the wine pairing for an educational and fun part of the experience. 5 star without a doubt.
Absolutely fantastic date night!
Outstanding food, well presented and the ambiance was outstanding.
From the mood to the food, everything was stellar!
Our server, Sarah, treated my friend and I like royalty on her birthday. Every consideration was given to each of our dietary restrictions by the chefs who created unique gourmet dishes (without the pork or shellfish for one of us and without gluten and dairy for the other) that deeply satisfied our palates. We never felt rushed allowing us to luxuriate in each of the 7 courses of the tasting menu. An added plus was being able to hear each other speak in the quiet cozy setting!
Amazing Restsurant. Incredible food. Service from Sara was exemplary. Drew, as simmallier, was super knowledgeable. First time here and plan to return every trip to Boulder.
You all Rock!!
Superb in every way.
We went for our anniversary again and it was absolutely wonderful.
Loved the Black Cat! The service was amazing- they were very enthusiastic in their descriptions of the dishes and the wine. We enjoyed the tasting menu and could not have been happier. Everything was fresh and farm to table. If you are in Boulder - it is a must try.
Our experience was lovely! It was our anniversary and they made us feel really special! Thanks for all the love!
This is simply the best restaurant in Boulder and the Front Range. The service is consistently excellent and the food is always fresh, delicious and inventively prepared.
This was not my first time there. For years I have been going back to this place because it is first rate in every way. My fiancé and I went there for my birthday. Asked to be reseated to a quiet corner and the host was most obliging. 1/2 a glass of complimentary sparkling wine started us off....Of all the charcuterie boards I've ever had, this was THE BEST. All from their farm except the figs and olives; so varied, large, delicious and well put together. I ordered the lamb shank which was done to perfection with vegetables from their farm seasoned with a coconut curry sauce...Very tasty. I am gluten free and they provided some nice substitutes. He had the duo of bison and very much enjoyed it. The creme brûlée plus pistachio shortbread for desert was served on a plate with "happy birthday "written in dark chocolate plus a candle. A beautiful touch and the desert was not overly sweet, which we appreciated.
While everything tasted absolutely fantastic- the cocktails, salads, bread, entrees, everything!- I wish we could have done the chef’s tasting menu but it is a minimum of 2 1/2 hours! When the restaurant does not open till 5:30 this makes most other evening activities impossible, like tickets to the opera at 7:30.
I love black cat so much！ Black cat always gives me surprise. My favorite restaurant of Boulder！
Eric and his team provide a wonderful first class dining experience. Though Eric was not working his team provided a delicious multi course chefs tasting and the premium wine pairing was enjoyable and unique. This time switching out red and whites throughout the courses rather than the standard path of white then reds... Fresh produce and lamb from his farm made the special celebration of friends 50th and great food!
Perfect in all respects however a bit pricy...
Exceptional experience! A friendly, competent and professional staff introduced delicious food and outstanding wine pairing. The price is right, as nothing is left to chance, food, wine, ambiance and service.
Delicious food and presentation; excellent staff and service; lovely and unique setting.
We did the tasting menu and it was a delight - each course delivered wonderful fresh food with unique flavor combinations, all presented beautifully - highly recommend.
My gf and I had a wonderful experience ..,we had a private booth, tried the tasting menu, and the staff could not have done more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We will be coming back when we visit Boulder again!!
Amazing amazing amazing!!!!
This is such a treat for us! We come down from Fort Collins for special occasions and love to go to the Black Cat! Such amazing ambiance, service, and the food is fresh delicious and beautifully plated. The wine list is extensive and cocktails are superb. We love the Black Cat!
Everything’s works well at Black Cat from the moment you enter until you leave.
Loved my visit here with my brother. Great food with excellent service. I would love to visit again.
We had a wonderful evening with outstanding service. We are thinking perhaps of flying to Denver from the East Bay of San Francisco for a special dinner the experience was so outstanding.
Fabulous Night To Remember! Absolute Must In Boulder.
Enjoyed the food.
Service was excellent.
Recommend it for a special dinner out.
Black Cat has its pretentious aspects ("We are the biggest Farm to Table operation in the country"), but the atmosphere is intimate and perfect, and the food exquisite. Service, beyond the opening spiel, is warm and attentive and real. This is my new favorite in Boulder, now that The Kitchen has, I have to say, jumped the sharks.
It is a nice quiet place but extremely high-priced, very limited menu, and Very difficult to park. All these things combined – I wouldn’t go back.
My husband and I tried Black Cat recently and had an amazing time. We ordered the Chef's Tasting Menu, and from start to finish it was outstanding. Small plates, but I think we had 7 courses in all, so it was more than filling. Also, they told us that they could make us extra plates if we still felt hungry. It's a quiet, intimate place that encourages you to stay for a while and enjoy your dishes slowly, which is really a nice change from feeling you have to be in and out to help turn tables. The service was warm and impeccable, and the chef even came by to say hi. Just a real gem of a restaurant -- a lot of love seems to go into it. Would love to come back soon.
Very nice romantic dinner. Polished execution, attentive service.
Everything was perfect. Service great, beginning with the hostess to the sommelier.
The sampling dinner with wine pairing was a fantastic experience! Will go back when visiting Boulder.
