I had the pleasure of eating here with my lady-partner and her folks. We all had the tasting menu, a six course tour of the night's best dishes. It was a meal that changed my perspective on food. We were served carrot ginger soup, foie gras, sturgeon with chickpea and prosciutto purée, chef-raised beef, and a perfectly subtle and delicious... More

The Black Cat is a great farm to table concept and the food is top notch. The menu for New Years Eve was excellent and the wine pairing spot on. The staff and other patrons had a great time.

Our little group ordered all the desserts and glasses of Madeira and sat in the little cave. What could be better? Incomparable delights, perfect service, and relaxing otherworldly atmosphere in the cave. I could have stayed all night and only left because my stomach was happily full. Can't wait to go back!

I'm sure it's just my own personal tastes, but it seemed like many dishes at this place are weird for the sake of being weird. I didn't count, but I think more than half of the entrees contained some kind of organ meat. They couldn't even make a basic chocolate cake without adding something weird to it (chili peppers). I'm... More

Had dinner there last month and it was another great evening of food and drink with friends. The menu is always changing and their farm fresh pork dishes are always a good bet. We have tried the tasting menu in the past and loved it.

Tough to have a good Thanksgiving meal out, but Black Cat did a great job. The menu was creative and all the choices very good.

We had one of the best dining experiences last night at Black Cat. We had heard that the tasting menu was the best choice, and that advice was spot on. Black Cat also offers two levels of wine pairings with the tasting menu. We chose to order one of the standard pairing and one of the premium paring so we... More

While visiting Boulder to tour the college campus, my grandson & I walked by Black Cat restaurant one evening it looked very interesting and made reservations for the following night. My grandson has a unique interest and sensibility for food. The staff the night we dined were delightful, friendly but professional. We noticed that everyone does everything in the dining... More

As a fellow farmer focusing in animal husbandry at another local animal based farm, I would like to clear up a past review I have seen and strongly disagree with. I have visited the Black Cat Farm multiple times this past year, including the Oxford Road location that was mentioned in a previous review. This location sustains vegetables and pigs... More
