Outside seating Great casual food

We sat outside on the veranda and enjoyed a great lunch of watermelon salad with tomato & fig, pasta with wild mushrooms...a great meal. Service is a bit surly, but generally efficient.

Food is ok, mostly Topas type food. Wait staff is uninformed on menu. I ordered Crab Cakes, I asked how many came with dish they said 3, it came out with 2. No apology or attempt to remedy the situation. Owner was also very rude!! And seemingly skeevy.

I met a girlfriend I hadn't seen in a while here not long ago. And, we couldn't have picked a better place! Service was impeccable - a very respectful waiter who understood we were two old friends catching up and never pressured us to order, eat, finish, etc. The food was just as good. We ordered about six small plates... More

If I called out to my kids and said Tempranillo or Disneyland? We would soon be headed to Colorado to eat here. We love it, the food and the service are top notch. Plan on a long dinner and just enjoy the entire experience.

I ate here tonight with my wife and another couple. The place was packed outdoors as it was a beautiful night. Our waiter, Mick, did his best to keep us informed about where our order was, but the bottom line: it took about 90 minutes for us to get our main courses (two of us had a salad first). When...

We keep coming back for the outdoor atmosphere and the last couple of years it's been marginal at best, especially for the $$. Tonight the manager was argumentative over warm Tira Misu! Seriously?? Really sad they don't get customer service or cold food cold and hot food hot - simple restaurant basics!

Great service! Food was tasty and location divine. Love the albondigas and the datiles! The wine list is exclusive but solid, and the aviation cocktail was oh so tasty. We sat on the patio, in the grass, and had a wonderful night.

I had not been here in a long time as the owner and help have in the past occasionally been a bit surly. And it's not cheap. I had no idea that Monday night you save 50%, eating in the lovely bar area. The atmosphere is really wonderful, and I had 3 tapas AND a glass of wine for $23,... More

What a nice restaurant with good and affordable spanish food. I would recomend the tapas, the huevos con chorizo and the jamon iberico. The service was very good and dininig in the patio in such a wonderful weather was priceless.

We dined here two days after the 4th of July. They were out of several items on the menu stating they were very busy over the 4th... this was Monday........... I ordered a salad and the toast that accompanied it was burnt, I asked for another piece. The wait staff seemed put out. I rarely send anything back but burnt... More
