I was able to reserve a table
I was able to reserve a table for 8. They set us up front by the window. Ordering for 6-8 is easy, they have an option to order the whole menu! Saves decision time and allows for conversation. The wine we had was excellent, it was a Spanish blend. Nice atmosphere. I'll go back.

We loved Al lado
We had such a great experience and wil definitely go back for their happy hour specials. I highly recommend going in a group of six so you can sample the "whole shebang"!

We went during happy hour and had great cocktails and appetizers! Good HH prices and fair portion sizes. I would go back.

Great Little Gem in Riverfront
Al Lado is a hidden treasure in Riverfront Park, just behind Zengo. The Spanish tapas menu is excellent and perfect for sharing, and the happy hour pricing makes for an affordable treat. The Deviled Eggs w/yellowfin tuna are delicious, and the Chorizo & Clams Cazuela makes for an odd but tasty pairing. Happy Hour has creative wines by the glass, and they have a great Spanish/South American wine list (one of the best selections of Rias Baixas Albarino in Denver). Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday they offer 50% off ALL bottles of wine, a bargain that puts the bottle price barely above liquor store prices, give or take a few bucks. Service was perfect, with just enough attention to make you glad you came, while still giving you privacy.

Great Hidden Gem
Al Lado is a great hidden gem that's not too busy so it's great to have a private conversation with friends or bring a whole big group! Great location too!

Love the wine & tappas!
I took a friend there on Saturday night visiting from California and we had a blast! The patron peppers, olives, frittata & shrimp made for a perfect dinner! The highlight though was the wine that our waiter suggested "Luberri 'Orlegi' Tempranillo! OMG! Best Tempranillo I've ever tasted!!!! Love everything about Al Lado!!!!

First time here, we loved it! Unique small plates, we have four of them, all very tasty and nicely presented. The small plates are perfect for two people, we also had a "large" plate of the salmon which was excellent. Service was spot-on, not too attentive but always there when you needed something or wanted to order more small plates. Great place to just take your time and order what and whenever you want. PLUS, they have wine on tap, way to go Al Lado!
