Feelin' the Love: Boulder's Most Romantic Restaurants

Finding romance in Boulder, Colorado is about as easy as finding a Frechman in Paris. The mountains, ambling creeks, well-maintained open spaces and athletic hardbodies all add to the air of romantic opportunity. And while many romances may start during chance meetings on hiking trails or while waiting inline at the grocery store, they eventually find their way to a romantic restaurant where two love birds can eat, drink, and get cozy together.

Luckily, Boulder offers some of the most romantic and charming restaurants in the state and, whether you're out for a first date or your 30th anniversary, there's something for everyone on our list.

Earning the top spot is Flagstaff House Restaurant, with its sweeping views, wild game offerings, and award-winning wine list. Also notable on our list, Black Cat offers farm-to-table  and seasonal fare. Their elegant ambiance, unique cuisine, and commitment to the freshest ingredients make this restaurant a treat for lovers. Want less elegance and more country charm? Try the Huckeberry who actually utilizes the same local farm as Black Cat and serves simple, yet delicious, soul food, puts on delightful tea parties, and is certainly a place that every lady will love.

Just stick to our list and you're sure to get a good night kiss, or two.
