Went for first time recently. Very nice atmosphere and great food. Tapas plus a good selection of entrees. Will definitely be going back. Can be noisy if the tables are full, but does not have the "back ground" music blaring. Service was excellent.

I wanted to climb into one of their Casks (Solera) after 5 minutes. What a PITY the noise levels are beyond tolerable. Why? Cause the food is really really good! As is the service and ambiance. Sadly, when we left we were all hoarse from screaming at one other. We were four people, who hadn't seen each other in a... More

a wonderful restaurant with an inviting outdoor seating area . in an off the beaten path location on colfax avenue, which makes it a great find, but also means parking is reasonable. the tapas and main courses live up to the whole atmosphere of the restaurant.

We have our last dinner here on every visit to Denver (once or twice a year), and it never disappoints. The food is always well prepared, but there is a nice variety from small plates to full dinner options. I almost always have the paella, but this visit had the octopus and the calamari, both wonderful. (And huge portions). Prices... More

Easily the noisiest restaurant I have ever been to. Extremely difficult to engage in conversation, even for a small table for four. Made the entire evening disagreeable. If you must go, don't plan on engaging in conversation with table mates. And bring ear plugs.

We went here while visiting Denver. It was close to our hotel and they had a Wednesday Wine special so we figured why not? Although we had to sit in the bar to get this wine flight soecial, it was cozy, but never got to loud. The service by Kristin and the Bartender (Dean?) was amazing, fast, efficient, and friendly....

My two first choices of well-known popular whiskeys were not available. The server offered something I'd never heard of, and not on the drink menu but she said it was very special; I tried it, but it was terrible. For this Spanish restaurant their signature dish - paella - was drowning in 3+ inches of sauce - yuck. No owner... More

Dined late at night and stayed past closing. Food was all fresh and there was plenty to share for each Tapas portion. Service was good and we did not feel rushed when we were staying later.

What a great find. Everything from the cocktails to the food were creative and delicious. The service was friendly and efficient. We had a wonderful evening sitting outside in the garden. We felt like guests at a friend's home. Highly recommend.
