Dinner was good - food was perfectly prepared and flavorful. The service was detailed and friendly. The restaurant was busy - Friday night - but there was no sense of being rushed or having to wait for food. The dining room is lovely and the noise level perfect.

Went there for restaurant ''fest'' with family, including baby and no problem. My wife had the same mac and cheese with scallops and truffles and was the same as before. We all had different menu items and tasted each to find there was an India influance in the food, that was good but a bit strange. We asked for specific cooking times and it was perfect. If you go you will go back...

Although Solera is located on Colfax and looks a bit "iffy" from the outside, it's a wonderful restaurant. I'd been there for drinks and appetizers before but never for dinner. The restaurant itself is cozy and was busy (bustling, but not too loud or overbearing) on the Friday night we visited. Our server was fabulous -- knowledgable and unobtrusive, but seemed to bring everything out at just the right time without rushing us. We enjoyed a lovely LaCrema Pinot Noir with our meal, which started with Thai-flavored calamari. Fantastic! Soup was next, a creamy butternut squash puree that wasn't too thick but was very flavorful. My dinner was the popular (for good reason) seared scallops over white truffle mac and cheese -- to die for! I highly recommend it. Dessert was a mouth-watering chocolate lava cake with butterscotch ice cream. I was full, but not too full to enjoy a few bites of that! Overall, a wonderful dinner. I can't wait to go back for more!

Solera has become very successful. I've visited 3 times in the last year, and the place was very busy each time. It is still a crown jewel on East Colfax Avenue near Colorado Blvd, where most businesses are involved in MMJ or accessories, or long term front businesses for illegal activity. Goose is a great chef, but the quality of food, and originality has suffered over the years. 3 to 4 years ago when the business was suffering, the food was very unique and fresh tasting. Johnny the bartender was a charmer extraordinaire. Now the staff are a bit young and dumb. The food tastes pre-prepped. And the masses of bland appreciation flock to eat. I'm glad to see their success, but some of the original magic is gone.

We recently had a wonderful dining experience at the Solera Restaurant & Wine Bar. We felt special and sincerely appreciated the complimentary glass of champaigne in celebration of our anniversary. Based on our experience of the delicious food, variety of unique dishes, and superb service, we recommend this restaurant and would definitely dine there again.
