In a town with a LOT of great restaurants, Black Cat is one of the very best. This is a place where great food is served with pride by people who care about great food and a wonderful restaurant experience. And they do all this in a warm, charming and relatively informal environment -- not the least bit of stuffiness.... More

The overall experience wasn't as expected, considering the prices. I don't mind spending big if the experience is there. The food was tasty enough, but my suggestion to the owners is to reduce the size of portions, and prices as well. I'd rather have a small appetizer and smaller entree , I guess the big hang up is the pricing... More

I extended a business trip in Boulder so my wife could join me for a long weekend. We were looking for some place special on her first night in town and Black Cat didn't disappoint. We opted for the 6 course dinner where you give your server your food preferences and lt the chef surprise you. What fun it was... More

We had a very unpleasant dining experience in this restaurant...probably our worst meal ever in Boulder. I love the idea of the farm to table and they have their own farm, etc. but product very disappointing, One of our party requested a vegetable plate, was served a bowl of undercooked, un seasoned, tasteless vegetables for $27. Salad boring, and lentil... More

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
