From the minute you walk in the door of the Black Cat in Boulder you are greeted and welcomed by everyone who works there. And then you see the seating for couples is very intimate with curtains between tables and cushy sofa seats and you feel even more comfortable before even sitting down. The menu is short but bountiful. Then... More

This was our 2nd dining experience at Black Cat separated by 4 years spanning Boulder visits. We dine frequently at many restaurants around the country and abroad and often select the tasting menu when we investigate favorable credible reviews. Let me cut to the chase, the selection of courses, wine pairings and service are exceptional. David (sommelier, bartender and all... More

The food was wonderful, and the staff were exceptional. The wine steward was particularly informative and knowledgeable. We had 3 different dishes and all were great. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I had the chef's tasting with the premium wine list and it was tremendous. Seven course meal paired with fantastic wine. Excellent service, knowledgable wait staff that love working there and enjoying talking about wine and food. My new favorite dining place. Food portions are start small but end big.

I went with my foodie son, we chose the Chef food/wine pairings menu. Seven courses, six wines. The food was fantastic, they made accommodations for son's GF diet, pairings were outstanding and well-thought out. Service was impeccable. It would be a perfect romantic special date night or an adventurous gathering of a group of friends/family. A little off of Pearl... More

Over the top, phenomenal, and beyond awesome, Black Cat takes 5 star cuisine to a whole new level in a category of its own. We had the chef's tasting and every dish put us into another dimension of culinary delight. This is a experience you'll never forget. Thanks, Black Cat, for setting the bar high. I've been all over the... More

I will be the first to say this place is not cheap eats or mid-range. It is fine dining at its best. It's more than a meal, it's an experience. We did the six course, some had the wine pairing. When I got the first course, I had to remind myself this is not an American restaurant. Portions are not... More

First impression of this restaurant is phenomenal, they try so hard. Real silver on the tables, exquisite wine list, very good service, beautiful & quaint decor... that's as far as I go. The food falls short of its bold first impression. The menu is VERY limited, which would be fine if all 5 choices were excellent. Also, it is VERY... More

Enjoyed fabulous 6 course chef's choice meal and wine pairings to celebrate a family member's birthday. Attentive service excellent sommelier support and 6 very diverse and tasty courses. Courses varied in size and a few had to be enjoyed with VERY small bites but left satisfied and not feeling stuffed. Wine pairings were very unique small producers and worked well... More
