The quality of the food is outstanding and the service and setting was wonderful. We are both endurance athletes, so the quantity of food wasn't enough for us, but we may be the outliers. It was a wonderful time and food was superb!

We love farm to table experiences and this was no disappointment. The food was amazing, the service impeccable. The restaurant itself seems to have a bit of an identity crisis-the EDM music was so loud that all the guests were having to yell. Not the ambiance we wanted for a romantic anniversary dinner.

Bramble & Hare is Black Cat's (slightly) downscale cousin. Like Black Cat, B&H emphasizes Black Cat Farm produce, pork, lamb and prosciutto. The menu changes with the seasons, which means

On our last visit, we had the three course dinner. The tomato soup was outstanding (even the croutons!), the lamb & veggies/mushrooms were delicious (always get their lamb) and the flourless chocolate torte was top notch as well.

Small but widely varied menu. We were a party of 3. Each of us chose a different appetizer. All were delicious. Had the pork and lamb entrees. They were wonderful. The pumpkin cheese cake, was delightful. Staff was attentive and knowledgeable, offering great suggestions. Best value is the 3 course meal, expensive, but worth it. Definitely recommend Bramble and Hare.

First time to Bramble and Hare. It was a memorable night. The place is a lovely little bistro. Nothing like it in Boulder. Atmosphere surrounds you. Our server was top notch, friendly in a classy way no happy talk but a lot of fun. My 3 courses included The squash blossoms with prosciutto and goat cheese, lamb with 5 vegetables including a charred spinach that was heavenly and flourless chocolate cake. My friend had an apple torte and it was amazing. There were four of us and nothing but raves on all dishes. This was a wonderful dining experience. Definitely going back.

Each course was perfectly prepared and thoughtfully constructed. I cannot recommend their lamb and pork more emphatically—I think they must raise and prepare them with love to make them taste that amazing. Even the desserts were spot on, and the wine selection pairs wonderfully with their menu. Finally, the service made us feel welcome and well taken care of on my wife’s birthday.

A wonderful meal. Started with craft cocktails, then we did the pre fixe menu, choosing different the BFF a to share. Except the beet salad. I was told it was amazing, but I skipped that and indulged in pork belly. Everything was fresh and perfectly prepared. The salmon and apple cake were stand outs. Server was attentive and friendly. Definitely a place to check out.

We had a very friendly server and great food. The squash blossoms and pork belly were great. Pork main dish was rich and tasty, but the lamb dish fell a little flat. We LOVE Black Cat, and this experience felt like a nice, lower key experience. I would go back.

The food was awful—the meat over cooked and under seasoned and the desserts were boring. My almond cake came with a peach compote (which was really just canned peaches) on top. Don’t waste your money.

Wonderful food, great service. My husband and I came here as the first fancier restaurant since moving to Boulder, and they did not disappoint. They even gave us each a small taster of an amaro as an aperitif, which was delightful.

It was a family birthday dinner for 6 and we had a very good time. The entrees were excellent as were the wines. We had the salmon (2), lamb shanks (2) and vegetable plate. All were delicious. Only criticism was the carrot ginger soup was too creamy and the temperature was too cold. But the desserts were great.

We loved our evening at Bramble and Hare. The waiter was very attentive, the cocktails were delicious and creative and the food presentation was excellent. We loved the ambiance of the place, a very quaint and comfortable speak-easy type vibe. We both had the lamb shank. My husband loved his, but I thought it could have been a bit more flavorful. Overall, a wonderful dining experience!

Boulder is a town with a lot of great places to eat, but Bramble and Hair stands out from the rest and rises above. Once the more relaxed kid brother of the amazing Black Cat next door, it now stands alone as an amazing dining experience on its own. Every experience we've ever had here has been a memorable one and leaves us longing for more. Incredible food, always great staff, and amazing drinks as well. Do yourself a favor and check this place out
