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.
Exceptional meal in every way. Attention to food care and quality was noticeable. It was a very nice touch to have Chef Eric come to the table and explain some of the nuisance of our meals. Thank you for a truly remarkable and memorable experience.
Wonderful, as always.
Truly a lovely night! My hubby and I celebrated our 21st anniversary with a tasters menu and wine pairing for 2. Everything was perfection. Delicious dish after dish, unique flavors that delighted, wine to match and wonderful staff! It was really an experience more that just a meal. The sommelier painted a picture with his words with each new wine to perfectly compliment the next dish. I told them I was Celiac and then did not worry about a thing the rest of the night. They asked for allergies right up front and had no trouble accommodating. Honestly our waitress was the sweetest woman that was always smiling. A perfect topper to the whole experience. A+ all the way. Highly recommended.
What a remarkable experience. Prix fixer with premium wine pairing may have been the best dining experience I’ve had in five years. Really well conceived and executed.
Another amazing meal at The Black Cat. I'm learning every time I eat here that this really is the best restaurant in town. The Tasting Menu and the wine were outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
This place does such a great job in the food & wine pairing that it is ridiculous.
Amazing wine list, delicious tasting menu! We had a great time and really appreciated the staff's thoughtful touches.
We tried the tasting menu which they kindly adapted for my wife who is a pescatarian
Excellent food all local ingredients
Great service and s very good wine list.
All in all a lovely evening.
Everything was great! I would have given the food 5 stars as well for the chef's tasting menu, but I was a little disappointed with dessert. Overall though great experience once again.
Sarah made us feel so welcome and special, which made the evening wonderful. The biggest star however, was the delicious tasting menu. If we lived in Boulder, we would be there once a month.
Incredible farm-to-table experience. Virtually everything on your plate was grown or raised at the Black Cat farm a few miles away. The wine list is extensive with selections from every part of the world. We come back to this restaurant every time we are in Boulder.
Staff was wondering, caring, intelligent with how the food was curated and made. Would love to come here again when I am back in town.
Excellent as always. I’m not crazy about being seated in the back room away from everyone. It seems as if you are in time out.
My boyfriend and I loved our experience here ! We came for dinner while vacationing in boulder and both the food and atmosphere were fantastic . Everything was so fresh and flavorful.
I was celebrating my birthday. They treated all of us to a special dish and me to a glass of champagne! So special.
We loved the food and service,
We had the Chef's tasting. The food and wines were excellent. It's an experience as much as a meal. It's not inexpensive but worth every penny. We've had a few dining experiences we will always remember, this is one of those. Wonderful.
Fantastic evening. Service was best I have had in a long time. Only thing to watch for is if ordering wine pairing to prix fixe menu, perhaps eat something before hand. Though food is outstanding, portions are smaller and don’t lime up exactly to alcohol consumption. Just a little food in the belly first.
The service could not have been better. The food and drinks were creative without being outlandish.
It doesn't really get more farm to table than this.
This is a splendid restaurant. We had the chef's tasting menu, and everything was lovely. Even the soup was amazing. We had two people in our party with dietary restrictions and the restaurant handled this cheerfully and with aplomb. If you're lactose intolerant most places serve you something less interesting than what others get. Here that is not the case -- those dishes were as interesting or more so! We'd love to return if we can.
We were there for a birthday and loved it all! The food was so well prepared with unique style and flavors. I would highly recommend the restaurant for any couple or group wanting an adult night out. Will definitely go again.
Amazing food and amazing service. The set tasting menu is well worth the price.
Black cat is one of our favorite splurge spots! It's such a food adventure!
Really terrific - kudos to the whole staff.
What to say about Black Cat? I can tell you that I have been to many establishments all over the world and especially in Boulder, and Black Cat blew me away! This was the best anniversary dinner that we have had. From the time we walked in, to the time we left, we were treated so well and made sure our experience was phenomenal. The hostess was welcoming, the service was great, and the knowledge of the Chef and Sommelier were unmatched.
You can tell Chef Eric (Owner/Head Chef) LOVES what he does. Every dish was prepared so well and the presentation was even better. He made sure to stop by 3 times to see how we were doing and even ran out a couple of dishes to us personally to explain the courses. We did the chef's experience with the Premium and Regular wine tasting and either choice would be a solid one. The Sommelier was fantastic and wrote down the wines he paired for our meal for us so we could remember our favorite ones.
We had a 6-course meal, from soup to beets, to lamb and scallops. Every course was so good, inviting, prepared meticulously and presented with grace and care. We also got to sample 12 different wines by doing the premium and regular tasting with the chef's experience! So wonderful.
Truly one of the best dining experiences you will have in Boulder, CO. The price is a bit up there but it is worth it! fantastic spot for our 7th Anniversary and I will definitely be back!
The service was beyond exceptional. The food was great. I consider this one of the top restaurants in Boulder without doubt.
no need to leave Boulder for a world class meal after all
INCREDIBLE!!!!!! One of the best meals I've had ever. What a fun experience. I would recommend this to anyone coming to the Boulder area. It is a MUST!!!
Great restaurant. We did the chef tasting menu with the premium wine paring and it was amazing.
Everything was perfect and exceeded our expectations.
Celebrating our 40th Anniversary! The BEST! Farm to table is excellent. Service. Quality. Ambiance. Food. Flavor. Unique. Fit for this farm girl foodie.
Great Restaurant great service great food we had an incredible time service was absolutely impeccable. Food was perfect
Excellent food, superb service
Incredible tasting menu and fantastic service and staff. They make it truly and experience.
This is a special place. It elevates cuisine in Colorado. Truly farm to table and truly fine dining, with an exceptional staff.
Nice welcome, great service, excellent choices and amazing food! Started with a beet salad with a little goat cheese, crispy greens and delicious dressing and had a Bison duo for dinner that was out of this world!
Highly recommend this sleeper restaurant in Boulder!
We were in town for a wedding and, aside from those activities, we wanted a special place to enjoy. Based on other reviews, and the availability of a reservation, we chose Black Cat and were very pleased with our meal. The Chef’s Tasting, with pairing, was excellent. We particularly enjoyed the slightly sweet (and foamy) turnip soup with greens, the scallop beurre blanc, and the floating islands. The lamb was overdone for our tastes (we like rare) and the chorizo a bit heavy for the overall meal. The fois gras was exceptional; almost buttery in texture. The waitstaff was attentive, efficient, and not over involved. Everything, including the wines, was well explained. Highly recommend!
Black Cat is a beautiful restaurant - a special place for a special evening. I’ll start with the positive - the service and ambiance are relaxed and elegant. Our group felt genuinely welcomed and cared for from the minute we entered. The cheese plate and wine choices were an excellent way to start. The food however didn’t match the rest- the plates lacked elegant presentation and the flavors and textures while good weren’t outstanding. There almost seemed to be too much on the plate - perhaps trying for upscale rustic but missed the mark and came off more like comfort food.
First time. Great food and even better service. Would recommend
