About Black Cat
Black Cat, opened in 2006 and founded by Chef Eric Skokan and his wife, Jill, serves inspired farm to table cuisine based on the just-picked produce from its own, full-scale 130 acre certified Organic farm. By day, Skokan cares for the vegetables out in his fields. Each evening finds him in the kitchen crafting dishes on his daily changing menu.
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.

Black Cat Ratings and Reviews
It was our first time there. We will definitely go again for special occasions. Excellent food, friendly helpful staff and very comfortable atmosphere. My wife said her entrée was the best she has ever had and we have an apartment in NYC where we eat our often.
A dining experience to remember!
My date and I dined at Black Cat last week . Although both of us had had drinks at the bar on previous occasions, it was our first time sitting for dinner. Upon recommendation from our waiter, we went with the chef's course selection and wine pairing, which proved to me an excellent choice! Following, we were entertained by six expertly prepared courses that showcased the chef's \passion for farm-to-table/local ingredients, accompanied by Lucas' select wine pairings that masterfully celebrated the union of food and libation. Together, the experience was a complete TKO!
The crew at Black Cat are incredibly passionate about sharing their art with the world. If you have a chance to indulge in a night, this place is not to be missed!
Our first time at black cat although we've been to bramble and hare several times. One of the best meals we've ever had and the entire staff was incredible. The dishes were creative yet classic, the only problem was not being able to fit even more in my belly. You can always count on Eric and his crew to serve up an experience you'll never forget.
The Tasting Menu, including the wines, was excellent. Each course was well-paired with a compatible wine, and delivered at the right intervals. Staff members were friendly and competent. Our meal was expensive, but for the occasion, worth the expenditure. Seating and privacy are not optimum, and to some might be a drawback. For us, it was not a problem.
Overall, a good experience, but a bit beyond our budget for dining other than on special occasions.
I ordered the 6-course tasting menu of the day and I was impressed with every course as the taste and presentation were superb. The fish and beef were done right.
The service was great and attentive. Both my wife and I really enjoyed the dinner and experience.
Delicious, beautifully presented food served by knowledgeable, friendly staff in a elegant, cozy, and warm setting. The food ethics are spot on here, with all of the ingredients sustainably sourced, many from the restaurant's own farm. I had dinner here with friends recently in the "cave room" and with my mom at a table overlooking the kitchen - both meals were fantastic.
My wife and I had the chef's choice with wine pairing. 7 blind (and outstanding) selections paired with unique wines at each course. And each pairing explained by Logan, the master somm. The dining room is small and intimate, with a great view of much of the prep and staff activity. It was really the best culinary experience we've had.
We went to Black Cat on NYE and were shocked to find that the only dinner option was a pre-set tasting menu. This was NOT advertised on the site or disclosed when I booked the table.,The cost was substantially more than the normal menu. Of course, by this point we knew that if we went else where for dinner on NYE we’d never get in so, we decided to stay and make the most of it. The food was delicious and the service good. The feeling of being ‘bamboozled’ into the cost just left a sour taste.
We were tucked away in a very quiet booth and ordered the tasting menu with the wine pairings. It was fun getting a surprise for every course, and the food was tremendous. Service was friendly and attentive. Both the sommelier and server were very knowledgeable and helpful. It was a memorable evening!
Our meal at Black Cat was such a special experience! We requested a vegan chef's tasting menu and the execution was seamless. Such care put into making each dish special and highlighting superbly fresh ingredients. Definitely a meal I will remember for a long, long time.
Black Cat was the perfect anniversary night! I would recommend the chef’s tasting and wine pairing for any special occasion OR if you are looking for palate heaven! Don’t worry about leaving hungry! Even my meat/potatoes/beer husband enjoyed the different courses (raw, grain, veggie) with wine pairings ... which truly enhanced flavor of food! They took good care of us and we enjoyed learning g about the different wines they were offering as the pairings! Reserve away- you will not be sorry!
I had not been to this restaurant for a long time. The quality has slipped a few years ago, but it has gotten some recognition recently and I decided to try it. The quality has come back somewhat, but the competition in Boulder is tough. There are many places that are more creative - especially if you factor in price.
3rd or 4th time at the Black Cat and exceptional once again. Attentive service, interesting and inventive cocktails with great food and wine - I will be back again for another special occasion. The Chef's tasting is always a treat and the premium wine choice doubled the pleasure with interesting and fantastic wine. Pricey, but worth it.
