    This is a must see to believe place. I made a reservation for two at 8:15 on a Friday evening. Drove up to the valet, walked in and the hostess met us there. We were immediately seated. The service was stellar. My date had a wine and I had their martini, she loved the wine and I had to have another martini. We had the grilled shrimp with crabmeat cornbread and Tasso cream appetizer. I had the Colorado red ruby trout with salsa verde and she had the Moroccan grilled shrimp. For dessert we shared a Madagascar vanilla bean crime brûlée. These were all generous portions and they were all at the level of perfection. I can truly say that I love this restaurant.

  • Among the Very Best
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/17/2014
    This restaurant is among the very best, simply because the staff and management make the effort to deliver exceptional food (both menu and taste!), considerate and efficient service. At the conclusion of each dining experience I've had there, my realization is that this is really nice. And, I believe the value that is delivered to the customers is very rare. There is no other restaurant that delivers this combination of food, service and value as well as Ibiza.

    We were attending a concert and needed to get in and out quickly. Our servicer was very courteous and made sure our meal came out quickly. The food was awesome (sea bass special for dinner and seared Foie Gras appetizer--YUM!) The atmosphere was lively and happy. Easy to get to with valet parking. Highly recommend.

    I was on a business trip with someone from my company and we were well taken care of at IBIZA. The wine guru, Marcus, was well informed and steered us to a couple of great bottles of wine. The octopus app was some of the best I've ever eaten and the warm beet salad with goat cheese was truly amazing. Also I could recommend the halibut and the lamb shank. Bravo to the kitchen and wait staff.

    As always, Ibiza never disappoints. We sat on the patio of a wonderful day. Great Food, service, and wine. Ibizas has always been one of my favorites because of the patio and also because it has reasonable priced wine and food.

    We received great service (attentive without being overbearing, great personalities) and the drinks and food NEVER disappoint! How can French fries be so dang good?! Everything tasted divine, from the martini to the fries to the grilled fish. I don't eat out much anymore but Ibiza always comes to mind when choosing because these folks always come with it!

    The food and service were delightful, but the disrespect with which we were treated for making a reservation will keep us from returning. The shrimp appetizer was delicious! The crab bisque was unique and flavorful :) The lamb shank was so tender and delightful! My boyfriend had the grilled shrimp and pasta, and he enjoyed the shrimp but didnt care for the pasta very much. We arrived when there were only 2 other tables of diners in the restaurant. The hostesss was headed to seat us in the front dining area when I mentioned that we had a reservation. Once the manager heard that he asked her to seat us at table number xx (dont remeber number). Next to the swinging door to the kitchen! Two thumbs down regarding the ambience that provided us!

    I used visit Ibiza at least once week for either lunch or dinner with my sister. Loved the place. Great wine prices. Delicious food. Then I moved to the burbs. Recently had dinner with my sister and the place had not changed. Great food and our waiter Harlan was so sweet. Worth the trip to town.

    Recent dining at Ibizia with an out of town guest from California who stated "Not to mention the great food available! The restaurant you chose had really delicious food (wasn't that risotto amazing)" . I thought the pasta dishes, seafood and lamb were a culinary delight. The wine list is extensive and fairly priced. A favorite restaurant to revisit often.

    Dined on 3/12/2014
    Ibiiza remains unsurpassed in their approach to wine. The service, the list, the variety, the food compatibility and most importantly the value pricing all contribute to a well earned and continued expertise that is not matched by any restaurant in the city. My experience here continues to be excellent. My business guest and I each ordered an appetizer (blood sausage and cheese plate and a shellfish special), split a salad (unique caprese approach) and enjoyed an enjoyed an entre (the sea bass and the cod) as well as two different wines. The wine and the food made for another great evening and so I can comfortably guarantee that I will return again and again.

    this was my third time and my wife's first. I knew they had a very good diverse wine list with excellent prices and it was confirmed. We had the Patz and Hall Pinot for $40. This is lower than many retail stores sell it. Food was tremendous, redfish and trout, and our server Carlos was on top of his game giving us just the right amount of attention. We will be back

    Ibiza was recommended to me by my boss and I'm glad he did. This restaurant was fantastic. Our server was Chad and he was very friendly and fun. My friend who joined me was from out of town and said she wished they had something like Ibiza back home. I had one of the pizzas and it was awesome. Such a great place I can't wait to take my husband and my mom.

    A friend was in town so we took her to Ibiza, not having been there for a while ourselves. The food was wonderful and the service was prompt and professional. The prices mean that this may be a special-occasion type of restaurant, but if that is the case then I have no problem recommending it. I had a special (off-menu) appetizer and one of their grilled fishes for the main course, and both were delicious. The portion sizes are sufficient but not too large, so the meal was filling but not overwhelming (making the prices perhaps a little higher, relatively speaking, than a place where the price is high but the portions are huge).
