The food here is fresh and wonderful. The ambiance is very nice and could be romantic, depending on what you call romantic. There are not many romantic spots here in Boulder, at least not to my finding. Wish there were.

We returned to Black Cat hoping to repeat a fabulous meal of last year and this one exceeded all of our expectations. The staff is exceedingly friendly and knowledgeable. The food deserves its own dictionary definition! Our nearly three-hour dining event rates as one of the best we've enjoyed, with every morsel savored. While many patrons order off the menu,... More

We first ate here in late Aug/early Sept. and had one of the best meals ever. Our son, who lives in Lone Tree took us there then. When we returned to help him move back to CA, we ate a "final" meal here. As before, everything was delicious. I couldn't choose just one item so went for the tasting menu... More

The space in the thoughtfulness of the design facing the open kitchen only begins to reveal what A delight this place is. I had the bar create a cocktail for me of their own thinking. Sometimes this is a hit or miss idea. They did a great job creative and not overly complicated. But the food is the star. Course... More

This is definitely a repeat restaurant! We did the tasting menu which includes wine pairings and it was fabulous. My boyfriend is vegan and they were easily able to accommodate his special diet. The staff were all super friendly and took special care of us. The sommelier is very knowledgeable and each pairing was done well. I honestly can't think... More

Black Cat was truly a treat! We ordered the tasting menu and was delighted with each of the 6 courses placed in front of us. We sat at the chef's table and were able to watch the chefs in action and do their magic. Chef Eric visited our table a couple of times and gave us a detailed explanation of... More

You will be taken care of in the most healthy farm to food way imaginable. They tell you everything about the wines and what matches the harvest and why. It is the best.

Wonderful! I loved that the chef/owner came to the table, made the experience so personal. They were able to customize the menu to suit dietary needs, so appreciated! Go for the tasting menu and pair it with the wine tasting as well, each plate was so good and the wine selection as well. Highly recommend Black Cat

Read previous reviews and was impressed by the owners true farm to table efforts. The service was impeccable and very friendly including a visit by the owner to describe one of the dishes on the tasting menu. The tasting menu was definitely the way to go to experience the breadth of flavors and experiences. The Sommelier explained the pairings of... More
