We are semi-regulars at Frasca, and I have to say this was one of the best meals I have enjoyed there in awhile. Flavors were fresh, complex, and the wine pairings provided by our excellent waitress Alex, were perfect! We always feel like it is a special occasion when we dine at Frasca, and this was no exception.

I've wanted to dine at Frasca for a really long time, it was truly worth the wait. The service was fabulous, they kept everything going smoothly but you didn't notice they were there. The food was sensational and the sommelier was excellent - he chose a great bottle of wine that suited us both.

This would be a Michelin starred restaurant if they did rankings for Colorado. The magic of the restaurant, in addition to incredible cuisine and a world-class James Beard award winning wine program is that Bobby, Matthew, Rose, Peter, Jeremy and the entire team treated me the same the first time I walked in off the street without a reservation and ate at the bar, as they do now when I have dined there over 50 times. I am in Boulder every year for a week and every night during that week you can find me at Frasca. It is that good.

Frasca is the finest and best restaurant in Colorado, in my opinion, ideal for special occasions. The service is attentive and friendly that seems eager to please. The food is mere perfection with a creative twist. Their pastas and breads are made in the restaurant which is a rare event. Their extensive wine selection is impressive but can be overwhelming however, the staff is well versed in what matches your meals and are eager to help. I also find that recommendations are not only wonderful accompaniments to the dish but are very reasonably priced.

Very expensive so save for a special occasion.

We went to celebrate my birthday and what a wonderful meal! We chose the many course meal with paired wines. Every single course was exquisite. I've spent a lot of time in Venice/Friuli and each bite made me reminisce, yet be content that I was at La Frasca. The standouts (for me) were the mouthwatering risotto, a perfect green salad, and a delectable lamb dish.
The waitstaff is lovely and knowledgeable.
Highly, highly recommended! We will be back.

Unfortunately Frasca was disappointing and more hyped up than what was experienced. It was extremely expensive, and we left feeling dissatisfied and not full even after 7 courses. The portions are tiny-yes the food is of quality, but the portion doesnt match the price. Wine selection is phenomenal, but also expensive. Service was spotty-hard to tell who was our server, who to order from and we felt neglected and a little confused as not everything was explained in detail as it was to other tables. I asked for my dessert to be boxed up to be taken home, but it was never returned. Overall, Im glad I tried it once, but I wouldnt return, even for the phenomenal wine selection. Over hyped and over priced was my experience.

The service was exceptional and the meal superb. The chef went out of his way to accommodate the Vegetarian and Gluten free members of our party by modifying items on the menu. We chose the four course menu plus additional appetizers and each had a great range to choose from and used local and personlly imported ingredients. Our daughter was visiting from overseas with her partner and this was a great venue to make her visit special.

I must say that I enjoyed food but hostess and service staff had an attitude and treated us like they could not get us out of there fast enough and like we were not good enough. Also we showed up to an early dinner and they seated us in the back and it was not that fun. I would not send my friends there at all. Fine dinning with attitude staff - no thank you.

Impeccable. You can't ask for anything better. Fit for the finest foodies. After living for years in the NYC restaurant scene, this fits right in while being in our CO 'backyard'. As a side note, even if you are not a fan of pasta, their gnocchi will change all perceptions and expectations.

Amazing. This was my second time to Frasca and the food keeps getting better. I would give six stars for service if I could. We walked in and were imedietly given a welcome glass to sip while they got our table ready. Our server knew the menu backwards and forwards and made great recommendations. The sommelier was incredibly friendly and knowledgable and helped us pick a couple of fantastic bottles. Every course was perfect but I think the real highlight for me was the rabbit gnocchi.

We enjoyed the ambiance and service tremendously! Frankly though, we found many of the dishes mediocre with only the Prawn dish and desserts outstanding. The other dishes (duck, eggplant, rabbit, gluten free pasta) were only fair to good. Kind of a let down since everyone raved to us how good the food would be. But we really had a nice anniversary celebration anyway as the dining room (ask for the main room if that matters to you) ambiance and service were perfect!

Finally made it to Frasca and wasn't disappointed! The service was absolutely impeccable and everyone who tended to us knew a great deal about the menu, offering guidance in detail. The delicate and tangy melon gazpacho was an absolute highlight, along with the perfectly cooked, tender gnocchi and rabbit. Also, the wine recommendation from the sommelier was wonderful. A stunning dining experience.
