We love their food sampling & pairing menu. Most restaurants only have one food sampling on the menu, but not The Black Catt, they will custom design you food sampling even if other people @ your table have different food allergies. Add the wine pairing & you have a very special & different kind of dining experience. Everyone is so... More

We used to eat here regularly, but got tired of the really stingy pours on quite expensive glasses of wine, and the small portions and high prices generally, although the food quality is excellent. Luckily, there are many, many options in Boulder that provide excellent quality food with more appropriate pricing and serving sizes. Too bad, we used to enjoy... More

We enjoyed the prix fixe dining option and had a lot of fun. When they delivered each course, someone would give a detailed explanation of what we were eating and it was all very good. Especially when the owner/farmer/chef did the presentation. He was very personable and added a nice touch to it. Yes, he owns a farm and grows... More

We ate here 4 years ago and my opinion is the same this time around. The room, the atmosphere, the food and the service are all fabulous. It is hard to think of how it could be better. I wouldn't change a word of my review from 2012 which said: This is not just a good restaurant for Boulder, it... More

As always we had an excellent meal. Staff is knowledgeable about both food and wine. Atmosphere is energetic without being noisy. Decor is beautiful!

The wife and I were walking around Boulder looking for a place to eat. We had just driven into town so I wasn't really dressed well. As we were walking by Black Cat the menu catches our eye so we go in and I realize I'm way under dressed (including the fact that I'm wearing some old, dingy baseball cap).... More

Wow! What a great dinner. This is by far the best dining experience we've had since we moved here three years ago. We've eaten at all of the other trendy restaurants and this place is a cut above the rest. We did the chef's tasting menu and it was totally worth it. The precision of the food from the kitchen...

What a very special evening we had! We were seated in a small private room, as we had told David, the host, that it was a special occasion. We spent the next 2.5 hours being spoiled and delighted by the array of wonderful dishes that was brought out to us. We opted for the chef's tasting menu with a wine... More

This restaurant is a farm to table fresh. Our waiter explained to us that Black Cat has its own farms and grown all its own ingredients that would be going into our meal that evening. They also will accommodate any diet restriction their guest have. My husband and I try to stay away from gluten, soy, and cane sugar. Not... More

Small and intimate but amazing food. Wonderful food and pairings. Very engaging staff and warm owner. Very creative dishes that have many gluten free choices.
