Eating outside on the front porch at Tempranillo is one of the delights of the summer. It is rarely crowded during the day - and I can only assume that people who are not familiar with the restaurant (and dressed in "outdoor garb") are put-off by its nice appearance. Don't be! You are missing a lovely, reasonably-priced lunch spot with... More

We went to Tempranillo this past weekend with friends expecting great dining experience. We were greatly disappointed. The tapas were good, salads OK (bit small and under dressed) but we had OK to horrible entree experiences. At $25-30+ plus per entree in Basalt they should be great. My special fish was overcooked/very dry over a bed of soggy greens, the... More

This is such a lovely spot for summer dining and features Spanish and Italian cuisine. One of the best features of this restaurant is their patio, which reminds me of many dining spots back east along the shore that have wonderful summer patio dining. You will want to get their early or make a reservation so you can get a... More

6 of us went to dinner here. We had reservations and got there before 9:00. For Starters, 2 of our party ordered the Greek Salad and one ordered the Beet Salad. When these starters came, they were drenched in salad dressings and absolutely inedible. They were sent back. For our main courses, I ordered the Pappardelle with a variety of... More

I have been to many restaurants in the Roaring Fork Valley, and this was by far one of my favorite. We sat on the bar side and our server was Brad (who is also the bartender). He was very attentive and got all of our orders out quick and on time. He knew all the specials, wines, and menu to... More

By far the best restaurant in Basalt if not the whole valley. Wine great, food great, tapas amazing. Farfalle pasta is fantastic and the Mediterranean salad is one of the best salads I have ever had. The piquillo pepper stuffed with cheese are amazing. We always come back here it is great! Only negative is gnocchi sauce is bland, need... More

Have been here several times and the experience has been varied--from decent to poor. Inconsistent service and food is the problem. Nice historic building.

We stopped in Basalt for lunch on our drive from Aspen to Denver. The kids wanted to have a decent lunch instead of fast food. We just drove into town and saw this place. We all like tapas and were not disappointed. We tried the meatballs, calimari, goat cheese with carmelized onions on toast, and fried potatos. The food was... More

We ate at this restaurant several times and were very impressed before. The first time we came for dinner and the food along with the service were excellent. Then we came just for tapas and were extremely impressed with the quality and service. The food came out fast and delicious! Yesterday we went there for dinner again and had a... More

What do you get when you combine great food, great wine, great atmosphere with dining outdoors and special friends? A very wonderful evening! We travel a lot and eat out often (if you follow any my reviews). Tempranillo is now in our top 10. My wife has several food allergies and they created special offerings just for her. All of... More
