Blackbelly works exceptionally close with local ranchers, going steps further than simply receiving and butchering whole animals. The team contributes to research and development, feeding programs, and other conditions that ensure the final product maintains the highest standards of quality, with low quantity production. Further, the two primary suppliers of Blackbelly’s meats – family-run, Carter Country Meats and Boulder Lamb & Meats - have always applied organic standards to their practices, but they have taken recent steps to deepen their commitment by investing in official organic certification from the USDA. For its produce, Blackbelly primarily sources within a few miles of the restaurant. A few examples are Oxford Farm, Red Wagon Farm, Isabelle Farms, Cure Farms, and Two Hound Farm. These farmers provide an amazing example of Colorado’s bounty. This in turn affects the menu decisions Chef Hosea makes on a regular basis.

Cocktail was excellent. The heirloom carrots appetizer was superb. I ordered the rotisserie chicken as my main course, along with a side of roasted broccoli - everything was beautifully presented. The broccoli was delicious, as were the accompaniements on the chicken entree plate - especially the mushroom bread pudding. Unfortunately, the chicken itself was a real disappointment - pretty salty (was it brined?), and other than that, not very flavorful. In addition, the skin was still soft, fatty and fleshy - not at all like the crispy skins you expect with rotisserie chicken. I will certainly try the restaurant again; I will certainly not order the chicken again.

Another wonderful dinner at Blackbelly. The sound quality is so much better since the remodel - now my husband will be willing to visit more often. Service and care by the team was first class. We sat at the kitchen counter and the chefs were super friendly. Thank you!!!

As always a great selection of meats and interesting sides. We had a celery appetizer that sounded like a stretch but was amazing. I always feel good about experimenting a little here know the main dish will be excellent. Our dessert from the new pastry chef was also a home run. Will be back

New Year's Eve dinner was fabulous! Each and every course was outstanding-flavorful, thoughtful and beautifully presented. We're big Blackbelly fans and were so happy to be able to ring in the New Year at our favorite restaurant in Boulder!

Went for New Year’s Eve Dinner; amazing food and service. Restaurant is a bit on the noisy side, they would benefit from some sound dampening panels on the ceiling since it’s a concrete floor and industrial ceiling. Despite this, I still highly recommend.

Had a ball! What a night. 5 amazing courses and a delicious wine paring to go with. All was beautifully presented and throughly delicious! This was the second time I’ve been to a 5 course price fix meal and I really hope they will keep doing them. It’s so nice to just sit back and not have to make and decisions! I love it!

Our party of 4 had the 35 ounce ribeye for $163 It was excellent. Service was great. Side of broccoli a little over “charred “. Not a place for a quiet romantic dinner...loud.
Have been there at least 5 times and will probably return when in boulder again.

Not ideal for a large group. Service was very slow with no updates from the staff who seemed stressed and put out. Half of the food came out barely warm to accommodate a large meat portion for the other half of our group. We were hoping for a better experience.

We always dine at Blackbelly when we are in Boulder to see our daughter. Love that all the meats are from local farms. They always have interesting menu items. Ask about what the cuts are for the evening and choose early, that is their only downside, they can run out of items. Otherwise, it is one of our favorite restaurants.

The food was okay. I wasn’t all that impressed, given the price. We were crammed into a small area with six people so whenever anyone had to get up to go the bathroom, everyone in that row had to stand up. It was also very loud and hard to have a conversation with even the person sitting next to you. I would not go back.

The food was very good and the sparkling rosé by the glass was absolutely delightful.Unfortunately it was loud and we could not enjoy conversation and the waitress seemed very rushed. I don't know if this makes a difference but we were sat in the back area across from the bar.

We always enjoy our visits, but the goat and mussels were maybe the two best dishes we have experienced in a long time. Thank you Blackbelly for another fantastic night at the chefs counter.

We had a great early dinner. 5pm reservation got us a good table. We ordered five different dishes and shared. Superb food. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. Steak was great, hamburgers were among the best. Scallops also great. Highly recommend

Lovely dinner! We shared some happy hour treats, a small plate, a large steak, a couple sides, and dessert. Everything was delicious. The standout was the kielbasa. Cocktails were on point, too.

Only thing that wasn't perfect was the brussel sprouts, which had too much vinegar for our tastes.

Awesome goat dish! Everything was delicious. The one criticism would be the dessert. I think it was a chocolate ganache of some kind, but it came out like a chocolate hotdog straight from the freezer. Not very good, not a big deal, but it sticks out in your mind because it was so far from the quality of everything else. Such an awesome restaurant.

Food was delicious and service was good. The setting was casual and does feel a bit crowded, especially when it got full. Price is astronomically high, so I’d prefer a more comfortable setting at that price range.

We chose a quiet evening, which is a much better dining experience since we could hear each other talk. Some of the best scallops we've ever had and excellent service made for a most enjoyable evening.
