Visited on a Monday which is their weekly tasting menu. The menu was well balanced and well prepared. Starter of shrimp, clams, oysters and mussels, and the other was chicken and leeks. The main was Berkshire pork. The service was great and very attentive. In fact the set dessert had coconut in it (not mentioned on the menu) and they... More

I attended a business dinner at Frasca this week. We had a late reservation due to a large group and, when we arrived, the people before us hadn't left as predicted. While we had a wait totaling about 20 minutes, the restaurant was very gracious, bringing us complimentary appetizers and glasses of wine while we waited. I asked for a... More

Have dined here many times and always, first class service, atmosphere and food. The best wine selection and educated sommelier staff with a mind-blowing ability to pair with the food selections. The frico caldo is still a favorite of mine and the ever changing menu always is a treat. Expensive? Of course, but you get what you pay for. Top... More

Yes, Frasca is pricey, but for an occasional, special night out it is quite worth it. We plan ahead, and book using the online reservation system (super easy). The a la carte menu is delicious, but it's worth trying the Chef's Choice menu (and the accompanying wine flight) at least once. Each dish was more delicious than the last. And,... More

I went there for a quick bite on Saturday night and was blown away.I had a Berkshire pork shoulder and it was one of the best pork dishes I ever had.It was flavored with rosemary and peach and potatoes are balanced with some acidity in the meat juices coming probably from horseradish.The portion size was between appetizer and entree,which is...

Yes, people, it is more expensive than most restaurants in Boulder. Think of the airfare you save, not to mention the carbon footprint, of not having to travel to NY, Chicago, London or Paris to (maybe if you're lucky) find a restaurant that can deliver the same level of service, fabulous wine, innovative dishes, dreamy prosciutto, spacious tables, and friendliness.

Yes, the food it OK, not exceptional, but the prices are just silly. If you want to pay ridiculous money for the hype, then this might be the place for you. But the quality of the food does not match the price of admission. And the atmosphere is not very comfortable, it is a fairly small establishment so you will... More

Better bring your rading glasses for the drink menu! Wow I think it is 89 pages. I ended up getting a mojito instead of one of their thousands of wines but it was great. I am a vegetarian and they were very flexible about our ordering options and upsized a very good antipasti to make it our main dish. I... More

My wife and I sat outside with a gorgeous sunset and had cocktails, a bottle of wine, and four course meals that were top notch. The service staff is knowledgeable about the area as well as the menu. Highly recommend for a night out that may be a little expensive but 100% worth it.

Fine dinning in Boulder Excellent representation of Northern Italian Gastronomy Quatro Piatti was well priced and although smaller portions - filling All seafood was outstanding, langoustines, urchin pasta, bass. Quail was perfect Even the kids pasta was demolished and very authentic, al dente and memorable great vins - plenty of staff to accomodate once a year activity for sure.
