About Bramble & Hare

Bramble & Hare, the original Farmhouse Kitchen and Pub, opened its doors in July 2012. Founded by Chef Eric Skokan and his wife, Jill, as the sister restaurant to their Black Cat Farm~Table~Bistro.

Bramble&Hare 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.

Hand-crafted, seasonal cocktails featuring artisanal spirits and local ingredients show the talent of our professional mixologists who make our bar spring to life.

The Black Cat/Bramble&Hare team also forages wild produce (like mushrooms, juniper and wild plums) that root the restaurants' cuisine in the flavors unique to the Front Range region.

Bramble and Hare was wonderful. Most of the entrees and appetizers are farm to table. I had the carrots with pistachios for appetizer and the poached salmon for dinner. Delicious! My husband had the butternut squash soup for a starter which he said was amazing and the pork entree also plentiful and yum. The service is gracious and the ambience cozy and inviting. The place is small so reservations are needed. The menu changes regularly to accommodate the fresh farm ingredients. This place impressed. We will be back.

Cozy space reminiscent of small restaurants in Europe. Excellent farm to table food from Black Cat's local farm in Boulder. The menu is small, but this helps keep the price down. Local, organic, gourmet food for the same price you'd pay elsewhere for lesser quality.

This was our second visit and both times everyone loved the place, the food and the service. (David was our server both times and he's great.) First I brought friends from out of town before a show at the Boulder Theater and this time we celebrated my son's 22nd birthday with family. The vibe is great, and we've agreed this will be one of our favorite go-to restaurants.

Thanksgiving special was overall very good. The pumpkin squash soup was a bit bland, the fish was excellent. The dessert sampler was great, but not really for someone who has a sensitivity for simple carbs, being VERY high is sucrose.

Both the cocktail menu and the ever-revolving food menu are surprising and inventive. The cocktail I had - "My Mom Listens to Slayer" - had tequila, beet, lovage, blueberry, and sour gastrique, and it was a brilliant and weird combination of flavors, earthy and bright and surprising. Mac and cheese with fermented jalapenos was the ideal mac and cheese. But the carrots with black garlic and a pistachio cream were the standout dish for me. Perfect showcasing of flavors. Thank you, Bramble and Hare!

Bramble & Hare was a let down. I've had fantastic bistro/neo-bistro food both in the US and abroad, and I'm also in the food industry, so my hopes were high. However, Bramble & Hare really only delivered with the cocktail, which was stellar (My Mother Listens to Slayer). It hit just the right notes of sweet and bitter, not going too far in either direction. I had the $35 tasting course while my husband had an appetizer along with an entree. The amount of food we received was plenty for the price, but the quality was lacking--mediocre food that was somewhat tasteless and nothing that screamed of "well made classic" or "new twist". My cod and potato salad first course was ok, but nothing stood out about it. It was a bit blah, seeming like it could benefit from some salt even, although the presentation was nice (though it needed a bit of colour--too much white on the plate). My entree was the pumpkin seed risotto, which was oily and too crunchy. I know risotto should be al dente, but this was just crunchy and lacking in flavor. And although the squash was fine, it too needed more flavor. The beet slaw on the platter seemed old and dry.

Dessert was good in some ways and not so in others. I had a wonderful americano, and the espresso/amaretto flan was acceptable. However, the presentation made it seem like I was receiving a tiny amount of flan when in reality it was a perfectly adequate amount. The flan needs to be in a smaller mason jar to make the mind's eye think it is fuller. It was too sad-looking and was a bit awkward to eat, digging into that jar. Also, the chopped up almonds and chocolate were a trite afterthought in plating and flavor. The crunch, rather than enhancing the dish, drowned out the smoothness of the flan. The chocolate also overpowered the flavor of the flan. All in all the dessert was very unimpressive and I would not be happy to have paid $8 for it should I have come in just for that as a treat one night.

Bramble and Hare is the one of my very favorite restaurants in Boulder, we probably go at least once a week. Everyone who works there is personable and attentive, and the atmosphere is cozy and a relaxing place to unwind after a rough day. They source a lot of their food from The Black Cat farm, so ingredients are always fresh and plates inventive. They keep a few common items on the menu, but the featured dishes rotate almost daily depending on what is locally available. All the dishes taste like they were made with love. A true gem in a town that otherwise has a tendency to overhype the food scene.

After having visited "the farm" and experienced fresh produce at the Boulder Farmer's Market, we wanted to try the food at Bramble & Hare and it's more reasonable prices. We experienced a lovely dinner for two with a craft cider and beer, lamb entree and a beef entree. It was a special evening. Thank you.

We enjoyed our dinner at Bramble. the cocktails were an excellent start followed by a series of small delicious dishes with a variety of subtle tastes. We really enjoyed the curry. What a surprise, it was a sophisticated blend of flavors with enough spice to give it character. The great part of dining here is knowing all the greens come from the farm. You can taste the freshness. I would recommend eating there.

Fantastic meal. Bramble has become our go-to restaurant — our regular place for great food and drinks, a convivial vibe and the most pleasing ambience in Boulder. Cozy, comfortable, warm and inviting. The farm-to-table experience here is not just marketing blather — the owner grows most of the food, from spinach to artichokes to sesame seeds to pigs, on his farm. It is spectacular — a Boulder gem.

Upon entering this restaurant my first instinct was to walk out due to an overwhelming burning smell coming from the kitchen, but I thought I would give it a chance. I wish I would have trusted my instinct. My first course was a field greens salad with some overcooked vegetables and no flavor to the dressing. The main course was chicken on a cold farrow salad. Although the chicken was well prepared, it also lacked flavor. I dont think it even had any salt and pepper. No salt and pepper shakers are present on the tables. For dessert I ordered chocolate bread pudding but was served nothing similar to bread pudding. The dessert consisted of a rather unremarkable chocolate brownie with ganache. The waitress noticed that the dessert was not to my liking and brought an apparetif to try to correct the situation, but all I could taste was strong alcohol. Yet, the food was not the main problem with this restaruant. It is very small and the tables are too close together. We were seated at a small 2 top table and there was only one other table occupied. Before our salads arrived another party of 3 was seated right next to us. They were loud, pompous, and self-impressed. I could not even hear my husband talking to me. Although the restaurant staff cannot control the personalities of the patrons, why in the world would they seat another party so close to us when there were many empty tables in the restaruant? I guess the empty tables should have been my second clue to walk out. Next time I will listen to my instincts.
