We went here for dinner and each got the chef's tasting menu. It was listed as 6 courses but ended up being 7 with the dessert. This was easily one of the best places we've eaten, and the dessert was hands down the best one I've had in a restaurant ever. I usually feel like restaurants, even higher end places,... More

This is an exceptional spot. When in Boulder you must check our their amazing farm to table concept/ dining experience. Lovely atmosphere and outstanding service which matches the quality of the food. Highly recommend!

If you are looking for a dinning experience go to Black Cat. It is a romantic grotto with wonderful seating, great service and outstanding food. The vegetables and many of the meats served are grown on the owners own farm and it taste like it. This is food handled with loving care if you are looking for a romantic night... More

Enjoyed a relaxed evening with great food and wine with a party of five in a cozy little back booth/room. We visited from out of town and enjoyed the relaxed and very friendly service that seems to be part of the Boulder experience. Farm to table food did not disappoint. And beverages from creative cocktails, to local brews, to the... More

I live quite close to this establishment's Oxford Road farm in rural Boulder County. Following the catastrophic floods of last fall, the owners received quite a bit of favorable press in the metro media, and business has boomed by their own report ever since. Sadly, the care of their animals is atrocious. I have personally witnessed unsheltered piglet litters die... More

I had the extreme pleasure to wander into Black Cat on a cold, snowy January night in Boulder. There was just one other couple there and myself, then later a ten-top came in. Hence, I received a lot of attention from the servers and the sommelier during my eight-course tasting menu with wine pairings. In my opinion, the quality of... More

Had a great vegetarian meal with leftovers for the following day and a wonderful bottle of Spanish wine, which was served in a locally made carafe I would have liked to take home.

Four of us had a great meal, two having the pairings, and the other two picking a la carte. The service was excellent with very well informed servers including those who brought the paired wines. Cocktails were also very good. All four of us felt the food flavors were rich and enticing. The foods also had nice presentations. The servers... More

We sat at 615 and ordered off the menu right away as the server told us that was the surest way to be done by 730 to leave for a show. It took nearly an hour for appetizers to come out; the two of us with show tickets left without getting any food. The two who remained were served entrees... More
