Authentic Farm-to-Table and Flavor

I have been a fan of Black Cat since it opened, but I hadn't been there in more than a year. My friend and I had a memorable meal at Black Cat a few days ago that reminded me why I have been a fan in the past. Chef and local farmer Eric Skokan is running a true farm-to-table place... read more

We ate at the Black Cat the weekend before Christmas and found the service and food to be outstanding. I have eaten at the Black Cat before and it has improved with each visit. There were four of us on the latest visit and we all ordered the fixed price with the superior wine tastings. The sommelier made adjustments for... More

We went last evening with family and the 6 surprise course dinner plus dessert was amazing. In Boulder, probably one of the best restaurants in the US Our preferred plates, the Washington oyster with some herbs and duck magre. Wonderful

Back Cat is a must for great food in Boulder. We make an annual pilgrimage to Boulder during the holidays to enjoy wonderful food and almost literally stumbled upon Black Cat. We love chef's tasting menus and were able to snag the only table without a reservation. I highly recommend making a reservation so you don't miss out on this... More

Not to say one cannot go to Black Cat just for a regular dinner but celebrating a special occasion there is worth the price for sure. We went for the tasting menu with wine pairing and very much enjoyed the dishes and friendly/very competent service. The noise level in the restaurant is subdued unlike some other restaurants in Boulder and... More

We went here fore my boyfriend's birthday and had an absolutely wonderful experience. They gave us a celebratory toast on the house and each of the six courses was to die for. We opted to go with house cocktails instead of the wine pairing, and they made us each a unique drink based on our taste preferences. Amazing experience!

A true farm to table restaurant - they own and run the farm. Terrific food, great people, very creative. If you need something less formal and lower cost, try Bramble and Hare next door, which shares a kitchen with a less extensive menu. Brought a large group here and used the private room. We all had a tasting menu -... More

We celebrated our 19th anniversary in October at Black Cat and were not disappointed. The cheese puff amuse bouche was so perfectly textured and flavored that I was almost willing to risk my marriage by stealing my husband's. The butternut squash and coconut milk soup tended a little to the salty side, but was lovely nonetheless and perfectly creamy. The... More

Perfectly balanced combination of flavors in every bite from a true farm to table restaurant. Good service. Beautiful setting a bit pricey but totally worthy.
