Excellent Food Excellent Wine Excellent Service What more could you ask? The tasting menu with wine pairings is a must-do The Chef came out to talk with us and shared information about the ingredients and techniques. Our Sommelier was incredibly knowledgeable and interested in our opinions of the wines. All of the wait staff were attentive but not intrusive Wish... 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

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
