    Solid tasting menu but we had to give it a "Fair" rating because of the incredibly pretentious service from all of the staff: host, waiter, & sommelier. It was clearly an attitude they train and encourage. They are good, but for an even better tasting menu without the arrogance, skip Frasca and go to Black Cat Bistro.

    This was our second visit to Frasca, after years of wanting to return without the opportunity to be in the Boulder area. This visit surpassed our first, which was in itself wonderful. Frasca is now on our top ten memorable restaurant experiences! The service here is impeccable- on point, yet friendly and fun. Every effort was made to give us a wonderful experience, from a gratis appetizer sampler, lots of attention with wine selection to a very attentive server. The food, needless to say, was just wonderful. It included a generous amuse bouche and a take-home treat. Though reservations are not easy, make the effort. It is worth the opportunity to dine at this special and wonderful restaurant!

    This was our first time at Frasca and the place is impressive. The staff and service are excellent and the atmosphere leaves nothing to be desired. The menu is eclectic and the servings reasonable. However, for what you get, the price is a little hard to swallow. My oyster pasta had enough shell in it that it was difficult to enjoy. If we hadn't been with a group, I would have complained (and I don't like to do that). Also, I've had better pork belly at a half-dozen hole-in-the-wall BBQ joints. The dessert was amazing and the wine list is vast, but I won't rush back any time soon.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Frasca is a Boulder gem...we are fortunate that our town was chosen as the restaurant's home. It has helped to "up the game", and provide opportunities for local restaurants to shine.
