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.

Second visit in a row where I asked for medium rare burger and received extremely rare. Management handled well but this should not happen. Greens accompanying rotisserie chicken were excessively salty. Overall, not a good night at Blackbelly.

I would recommend this to friends who are real meat connoisseurs. It's good but extremely pricey. It's good for an event, not maybe not for a regular Tuesday out for dinner.

The decor was modern and similar to many other restaurants. I always like it when a place has a more distinctive, cozy atmosphere. It was a little hard to hear people at our table as the noise from other diners was a bit loud. The food was OK, my wife wanted her burger cooked medium well and it came medium rare. I can understand a bias to cook steak on the rare side but not hamburger. Finally, the prices were high, especially as the food was just OK and the portions small.

Blackbelly is consistently fantastic. Their dishes always impress and the quality of their ingredients shows in the immense flavor of their dishes. The cocktails are creative and the wines by the glass are diverse. The guys behind the counter (Quinn, Mitch and Arun) are a delight and very talented. Lenny strives for presentation perfection, Brooke and Michael are friendly and make customer satisfaction a priority.

Blackbelly is an outstanding dining experience. The food is nearly always locally sourced, creatively prepared and tastefully presented. Eric was our server and he was AMAZING - genuinely interested in our experience and our satisfaction! The team of people supporting Eric were fun and engaged as well!

I highly recommend the quality of food, high level of service and fun energy of Blackbelly!

My husband and I have eaten here at least 4 times and consistently the quality of meat is outstanding; this includes steak and charcuterie. The noise level can be a little high at times and the vegetable dishes are interesting, but not always as great as the meat. Also consistent is the outstanding service by all staff. We highly recommend this restaurant for both casual dining and more formal celebrations.

My wife and I celebrated another wonderful meal at Blackbelly on Sunday evening.
We sat at the counter and had a lovely time eating and talking with one of the chefs, who was friendly, professional, and someone my wife loved talking to about cooking.
This is our favorite restaurant in Boulder County!
Thanks!
