A wonderful dining experience! Highly recommend it!
Meal and service was fine. My main complaint is with the wine expert! He was very rude to me! I ordered a glass of wine and when he served it my wife and I both said that it was not a full 6 oz! When we called him back he asked " did I drink some"!!! He did agree that it was not 6 oz ! BUT it was VERY RUDE to ask what he said!!! This put a very bad feeling on the whole meal!!
Every course is superb. And most of the food is grown locally in Boulder county. Sommelier Logan loves wine and picks fun surprises for you. If you’re going to eat upscale in boulder, nothing comes close to Black Cat.
the vegetarian meal was not up to theBlack Cat's usual standard. The ravioli was too al dente, hard to bite into.
Excellent culinary experience, exceptional wine list.
Creative and Unique, Black Cat had exceptional concepts and the Chef's choice offering was an experience my wife and I will talk about for a long time. The wine pairings were fun, hearing the stories of their origination made it very interesting. Certainly worth checking it out for a special occasion, but pretty pricey to consider coming regularly, but it's something we expected going into it.
We had a wonderful evening at Black Cat. Highlight of our time in Boulder. Really cool ambience and the food was terrific. Highly recommend the tasting menu and wine pairing.
The hostess was so accommodating. There was a bit of confusion with our reservation but she worked it out. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. Sommelier was outstanding! Great place to celebrate our anniversary.
Perfect dinner with wine pairings. Excellent service. A Boulder gem!
The staff worked collaboratively and we were treated like dear friends by all. Best Foie gras paired with Sauternes.
Celebrated our anniversary, it will be a memorable evening.
We are still talking about our dining experience. The tasting menu was excellent. The service was outstanding. We enjoyed the cocktails and the recommendations from our server about interesting cocktails. We plan to return again and again!
Quaint, delicious. Wonderful service!
Chef Eric Skokan and team were amazing on our first visit to Black Cat. We went with the 6-course chef’s tasting menu, accompanied by inventive wine pairings from the sommelier. Equal parts fun and delicious, it was a terrific meal in a sophisticated (but not stuffy) atmosphere, with terrific service throughout. The care and precision that this true farm-to-table establishment puts every detail was evident. Will definitely return on a future trip to Boulder.
This was a fabulous treat. The tasting menu with the premium wine pairings was well worth the cost with sommelier Logan handing out surprise wine pairings. If you are in Boulder and want a treat, this is a wonderful dining experience.
We would consider another trip to Boulder just to eat here again. We have raved about our meal to friends. We were easily convinced to try the tasting menu, since they could accommodate a fussy carnivore and vegetarian with food allergies. What a bargain. All courses were great, but the food was too abundant (we enjoyed our last savory courses & one dessert for lunch the following day- perfect).
Food and ambiance were fantastic, but the real winner was Logan, the sommelier. We have pivoted away from wine pairings lately as most are overpriced and uninformative ("this is some red wine from California"). The wine choices were remarkable -- unusual wines and all with descriptions of the grapes, wine-makers, locations. This young man is so gifted, and very fortunate to have found his calling.
Now the Black Cat is taunting me with e-mails telling me that if only I lived in Colorado, I could be enjoying whatever is fresh this week. Sigh.
The service was exceptional, and frankly some of the best I've had in Boulder in quite a long time. The Chef's Tasting Menu was wonderful, and far exceeded our expectations.
This restauatant is amazing! We had high expectations which we more than exceeded! The staff is fun and the food delicious!
Outstanding menus with locally produced meats and local vegetables. Cheese and wines are interesting from around the world.
Customer service here was superb coupled with good food I highly recommend this place.
Delightful Mother’s Day! Excellence is in the details and we were not disappointed!!
Creative fresh perfectly prepared food to suit anyone’s dietary needs. Great service. Totally enjoyable.
Wondefful experience. Food was incredible and service fantastic. Love the venue and quiet, intimate setting. So hard to find these days.
Delicious and very fresh food. Excellent service and it was a pleasure all around.
The staff is incredible and the food fantastic. They are very flexible in honoring any special needs or desires you may have. I never miss at least one dinner at this place every time I visit the Denver area!
Just wow - quality of service and food was outstanding!
Excellent food and service. Our waiter "David" was friendly and attentive. The 6 course meal a culinary delight ! Very quiet kitchen staff . Would ( and will ) return !
We loved the tasting menu and experience of Black Cat!!! Every serving was a surprise and a total culinary treat. The wine pairings were superb!!! I recommended this restaurant if you love gastronomical treats that come to you as complete surprises from the chef. We plan to go back and bring the entire family the next time we are all in town for a celebration.
Just not a great place to dine in Boulder. There are many others that are much better. They push the $78 tasting menu which is really not all that different than what is on the menu or a good value. The back room, where we were, is windowless and drab. The waitress was nice, but weird. We all had "high cheeks"- an Edith. This is my second time there in a couple years, and it will be my last.
Our experience was exceptional. An evening of the highest quality from the service to the cuisine, it was exceptional. Highly recommend!
This is a great find in downtown Boulder. Farm to table superbly prepared and an excellent wait staff. Highly recommended.
The food was great, but I had the lamb that arrived as a large "leg" on my plate. It was too difficult to eat (impossible to cut) in a nice restaurant so I ate the sides and took the lamb home where I could tie into it without seeming rude at a restaurant. It was good, just really messy and, I don't think, a good choice at a restaurant.
The beef was great that my husband had.
Amazing dining experience- great food; great wine list; worked with our dietary restrictions without a hitch; fantastic service; great ambiance. We will be back!
Absolutely amazing service and farm to table food. We decided on the chef’s menu with wine pairings and were not disappointed! The ambiance and wine were truly special and they easily accommodated our allergy needs. A perfect date night experience. Thank you!
We love Black Cat, but must say the tasting menus was not as excellent as we have come to expect. Otherwise everything else was five stars as always!
You must go to Black Cat. Everything was top notch without being pretentious. We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings, one premium pairing and one standard pairing. Each dish was fresh, beautiful, creative and delicious. We compared the pairings, premium versus standard, and all were well chosen. The sommelier was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and approachable. He presented the wines with a storyteller quality that was delightful and elevated the experience. It was expensive, but worth every penny. If you want to enjoy a relaxed world class dining experience you must go to Black Cat! Meeeeeeeeeow!!!!!
Outstanding tasting menu and wine pairing! The tastes were sublime, enhanced by inviting eye appeal and unusual and beautiful wines. The staff is attentive, professional, and genuinely dedicated to sharing their love of their dishes and wine selection. Black Cat is a must for me every time I travel to Boulder.
We ordered the chef’s tasting menu and premium wine tasting, which we do a couple times a year for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. Every time, the servers are prompt, friendly and highly knowledgeable, the food is delicious and it is overall a wonderful experience. When we are done, we always say we should split one chefs tasting between the two of us because there are so many courses. It’s quite expensive, but worth it!
This place is always great for a special night out. We took our two year old and took turns walking her on pearl street between the six course tasting experience.
Excellent farm to table restaurant. Very unique
