    Starting with the service, it felt like we were the only ones in the restaurant -- but wait, we were! In all fairness, it was Thanksgiving Eve. Nevertheless, the service was outstanding. This is billed as a Colorado menu with a Spanish flavor. It's been a while since I was in Madrid, so maybe that is why I had a hard time recognizing the Spanish flavor, unless it was the beets or cured olives. Anyway, that did not detract from an otherwise outstanding dining experience. We had the crabcakes with watermelon salad for an appetizer, Scottish Salmon for one entree and the twin filets with lobster salad for the other. We thoroughly enjoyed them all. The decor of the restaurant recognizes Colorado and is quite impressive.

    As a chef my self it's really hard for me to be 100% impressed by any restaurant. But my dinner at Baca proved to me that I can still go out to eat and love every single bite. We did small plates and got to try 5 things on the menu. I wish I could have tried more but I was so pleasantly full that I could not manage another bite. The staff was as amazing as the food. Slightly shocking for a hotel restaurant. I will be back with more people.

    We weren't sure to what to expect from Baca when we chose to dine there for our 6th Anniversary. Online the menu was enticing and the 1000 points from Opentable for choosing to dine there coaxed us into trying it out. All we can say is wow! Absolutely awesome food, well paced (unrushed) service, and a calm ambience. We tried the prosciutto wrapped, blue-cheese stuffed dates on a rosemary stem skewer. Wow! We could have eaten 20 of those! Our entrees were a pork porterhouse and a crispy duck, both of which were awesome! Very generous wine selection! Baca prides themselves on getting their food and wine from sustainable sources and farms. Given that position, they are surprisingly affordable and well portioned. Highly recommend you try Baca!

    Selling themselves as a tapas restaurant is completely misleading. Yes, you can get marcona almonds and Iberico ham but the main courses are standard fare: burgers and meatloaf. If you are staying at the Inverness, perhaps go for dinner (that is paid for by your company) but don't spend your own money here.

    Made a last minute reservation and should have looked over the menu before getting my mind set for Paella at a "Spanish" restaurant. My own fault really! A few of the dishes did have a spanish twist, but were very american overall. The atmosphere was comfortable, and the noise level dropped considerably once a larger group from a convention left the dining area. The cheese/meat tray options were average. The Salmon and the Lamb were both excellent. Staff were VERY friendly and helpful with recommendations. The wine list was very good also. Did not stay for dessert, but the menu sounded interesting. Not on my "must return" list, but wouldn't be against it if I was in the area.

    My wife and I really enjoyed our dinner at Baca. The hostess was quite friendly and our waiter kept us in stitches! (Tip: Ask for Rodolfo!) Our appetizers were great. So were our salads (we were trying to eat light). Our dessert (berries with chambord cremé) was just ok, but mostly because I don't enjoy that style of dessert. It was good quality, just not my favorite style. Anyway, we had a very enjoyable meal here and would definitely return.

    We had a wild mushroom strudel appetizer that was outstanding. I had crispy duck with wild risotto and my husband had braised lamb shanks. They were both delicious and beautifully presented. We would definitely return if we were in this area again. We were attending the wedding of the daughter of some old friends the following day.

    Interesting highs and lows here. I'm a global foodie, but the menu was a tad strange. It was just difficult finding something you just had to have, especially if you want to eat healthfully. Smoked meats and cheese (total fat); each soup was cream-based; I ordered the lamb shank, but I couldn't get any meat off the bone so I stayed after my guests left and ordered more food. The mushroom skillet -- now THAT was good. Also, find out if any large groups are attending. They are extremely loud, the tables are close as well.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 5/20/2012
    We invited 2 out of town guests who were staying near Inverness. The 'main room' is unfortuantely an interior space - although nicely decorated, it does not look out onto the landscaping and golfcourse views. So...we asked if they would serve the dinner menu in the lounge which is right up against big beautiful windows - they did accommodate, but the lounge servers were not as familiar with dinner service, and the entire service was a bit 'choppy'. We would return for a cocktail, but probably not dinner.

The only suggestion I have for them is they should update their on-line menu to agree with their current menu as I do like to peruse the menu on=line prior to the dining experience, Will so note below.

    Superb dinner for Earth Hour, we are so glad we tried this place. It is one of the best meals we've had at a restaurant in this part of town. While we had the chef's special venison and duck, we love the idea of the local artisan cheeses, and will come back to try them. Great desserts and service as well.

    Interior location restricts more open view (though Fireside Lounge at the Inverness Hotel does have good views). Meal was excellent (ordered off the Restaurant Week menu, but all entrees looked great). We celebrated our anniversary and the staff did our celebration up right with personalized congrats on our (shared) desert plate. Only minor drawback was that the entree and veggies weren't quite as hot as they might be.

    It started out not good with the valet off having a smoke so we had to park ourselves. Then there was no hostess at the entry of the restaurant and we had to wait a while until a waitress saw us. But, it got much better once we were seated. Every staff person was extemely polite and seem to honestly care how we were enjoying the evening. Our waiter may have been a little stretched out but there was always someone nearby to help us. The meals were great. I highly suggest trying their artistic cheese and sausages. They have a great selection and charge by the ounce. It is a superb way to mix and match your own choices. Three were perfect for the two of us and well worth it. The wine list was high but they offered 10 bottles for $20.

    Saturday night morgue - we were the only guests there. Service was tremendous, but the food fell flat. Visually, the food was beautiful, but it was like eating pretty leftovers. I don't think any of the items we ordered were made fresh - except maybe the sole which was so salty and over seasoned that it was barely edible. Very pretty frozen dinners. It's a shame, this place has such potential.

    We made reservations for new years eve a week in advance. Not once were we told of a fixed menu for that evening. We went there planning to spend around $125 or less for the two of us. It cost nearly $200 by the time we tipped the staff. Food was good but not great. For $50 a person it should include a bottle of wine or a couple drinks. They claim a Spanish theme to the menu, however what we ate on new years was VERY French. Atmosphere is nothing special.
