Nice comfortable place to eat with a lot of class

Excellent service from the waitstaff both in the bar and restaurant. Quality of the food was very good and reasonable price. Great wine selection. Not too busy and could visit easily with our friends.

I have been here two or three times. This time was so good, I had to write a review. I love the tapas menu. The wine and beer selection is excellent, the sangria is great, and the cocktails also look good- but I didn't have one. The server was so pleasant and knowledgable, the outside patio is charming, and everything... More

We arrived right at 5 on a Wednesday and within minutes there wasn't an empty seat in the bar area. We enjoyed a variety of delicious foods. We started with a meat and cheese board with flatbread and fig jam. We also ordered their tasty truffle oil mac-n-cheese along with their tender and light fried calamari with a chili sweet... More

Solera was one of the first restaurants we checked out when we moved to Denver. My husband and I both had our parents in town, along with my ten year old son. It was late summer, and it was an absolutely gorgeous day, so we ate on the private patio. The patio is closed in, colorful, and very peaceful. It... More

Nice cozy patio, with heaters, so comfortable. Service was slow, and food portions adequate. I had salmon, and it was tasty. The menu is limited and special. So, if you go in for the snails, calamari, etc, this place is for you. It is a bit spendy, so be prepared for that.

The hostess seemed a bit slow. She told us our table would be ready in 5 minutes and we waited over an hour. We had a reservation! We finally got a table and the waiter was nice but the food took forever too! I asked for my desert to go and they boxed up ice cream for me??? Wth

I find myself returning to this neighborhood place over and over again because the wine is excellent, the food is delicious, and the service is superb. My favorites include the cheese selections, the tuna tartare, and the calamari. And don't forget the banana bread pudding for dessert. Miles the bartender is a delight and always very friendly and helpful.

Fine dining with a Spanish touch. The menu does not try to cover every possible taste. Every thing on the menu is top notch. The wait-staff is prompt, efficient and very helpful, no pressure to turn tables or up-order. A little loud on weekends when full but not prohibitively so. Reservations are highly recommended.

We went to Solera last night for our anniversary and were more than happy with the choice. We took a table in the bar as the tables are set further apart than in the dining room and the bartender was our waiter and overall host for a great evening. He was extremely helpful and most attentive to our wants and... More

We haven't been to Solera for many months because of the distance from our home, until we met some friends for dinner there last week. The food and the service were as good as we remembered. The paella is a very good dish and the warm kale salad was a great starter. Two people in our party had the scallops... More
