Tapas D Jerez -
Best Restaurants in Centennial
Food was very high in fat, nothing
healthy, salami, cheese or fried food. Paella was very dry and not tasty. Shrimp was soaked in butter. the only item I liked was the dessert which was the flan, it was excellent."

The sangria was really good, but
the food did not live up to expectations...the shrimp dish was especially poor."

We've been to Spain and this
restaurant brings us back. You are greeted with a special treat on the house shortly after you are seated - very nice. They have several good choices of wines by the glass to go perfectly with their delicious tapas!"

A very nice stop for some tapas
and a glass of wine. Plenty of choices for both hot and cold tapas and red or white wine by the glass."

I've eaten at great tapas
restaurants before, particularly El Bulli in Sydney Australia. This restaurant in Denver is a shining example of tapas. The food was excellent. The place was very relaxing. I took my wife here for her birthday. While the outside is a shopping center, the inside of the restaurant is beautiful. If you're American, get used to not seeing your waiter at all times. Spanish culture is very relaxed and Europeans do not rush their meals. If you need the check at the end of your meal, it will take some time to pay and leave. Eating at this restaurant is meant to be an extended time of enjoyment. Stay a while and have a good conversation with your family. Otherwise, you might get upset over this cultural difference."

I love Latin American food, even
what we get here in the States, but if you're looking for tacos, burritos, or enchiladas, you won't find them here. This is a SPANISH restaurant, not Mexican. They serve authentic Spanish dishes, mostly from southern Spain, where Jerez is located. You can get full-size entrees (raciones), but first-timers are well advised to taste the samplers to get a sense of the variety of dishes they offer. Four of us were very well fed splitting two of the deluxe samplers. The plates come out individually, tapas-style, in succession. The lobster bisque is creamy and delicious, and the piquillos (stuffed chile peppers) are stellar. Jamon Iberico, clams in garlic sauce, etc., etc., etc. The treats just keep on coming."

El Senor has consistently good
food. The staff is very friendly. The interior is very colorful."

So happy to have found Tapas D
Jerez! The food is authentic Spanish cuisine including amazing hot and cold tapas, paella and a great Spanish wine list. Our favorites were paella mariscos, tortilla espanola and the papas alioli. We will definitely be back!"

We went for the flamenco guitar
show- super performance VERY enjoyable. The tapas were delicious and our server was very helpful. This would be a great place to watch soccer and the world cup! Can't wait to get back and try it again! The atmosphere was laid back and fun especially when the guitar guy went on...perfect level of music- not too loud but not to quiet. Great overall experience!"

Our family celebrated the one-year
anniversary of a visit to Madrid and were not disappointed in the least. Their offerings are very authentic and perfect for sharing the experience of foods from the old country. Great service and value for the quality and amount of food. The only slightly lacking piece is the ambiance - but one wouldn't expect it to be perfect in a suburban strip mall. Definitely going back to sample some of the dishes we didn't get."

So glad we ran into someone that
told us about this place, since my husband is from Burgos, Spain. It was our first time here and the service and food was excellent.We had Patatas bravas, which was delicious, I loved the sauce. Entrees were good sized, which we couldn't finished. We will definitely come back again."
Dined on 6/7/2014
This is a fun place to eat. Small
plates allow you to taste several food items. The 'hot' items were barely warm. The garlic shrimp were outstanding. The service could use some improvement."

Is hard to find authentic tapas in
Colorado, and this place took me back to Spain. Great food!"

Happened upon this restaurant
looking for Spanish food online. This was amazing. The food is fabulous and the friends I brought with me loved it just as much. Will be going back again soon. "

Our group of 4 enjoyed Sangria,
meatballs, potatoes, and chicken dishes; all flavorfully prepared and presented."
Dined on 5/15/2014
Very friendly and good service.
Comfortable environment. Unique, varied menu and wine list. Love the live music instead of loud radio music. Don't like the TV's, find them distracting from having a nice dinner and having a nice conversation with our party. Last time we ate there, they were out of beef and tiramisu. Found that disappointing as two of our party wanted to order these items. Prices are reasonable. We are happy this restaurant is in our neighborhood. "
Dined on 5/11/2014
Great mix of tapas and entrees.
The traditional sampler was plenty for two people and a great way to try a little bit of everything. The gazpacho andaluz was amazing! Great wine list with several Spanish wines. We loved the live music too. Expect the service to move at a slower pace and you won't be disappointed."
Dined on 5/10/2014
This is a very pleasant restaurant
with wonderful food and a very good, but reasonably priced, wine list. We decided on the tapas sampler for two and were first served five delicious cold tapas. After setting aside some of them to take home, we were served six equally delicious hot tapas. Our wine was a Ribera del Duero which is our favorite Spanish wine and which went perfectly with our food. The sampler turned out to be too much food for us, so we'll probably go with something different the next time. It helps to study the menu on the website as the selections are very varied. "

Food was very similar to the Tapas
I had in Spain. If you like to explore food this is a great option and fun experience. We had a group of 10 and one toddler and they we very accommodating! The owner and the chef came to say hello at our table. It was my sisters birthday and they made it very special. "

Went for lunch on a Saturday,
first time at the restaurant. Two of us ate at the bar and watched soccer on the flatscreen TVs. The staff were ultra friendly, the tapas were outstanding! We ordered the Tapas Sampler for two, a gastronomic soiree through the best they have to offer. It consists of six hot tapas and five cold tapas. We munched the afternoon away and had a fabulous time. We now have a local Spanish restaurant favorite!"

We went on a Saturday night, 8pm
reservations. The guitarists were very talented, but the music was too loud. We couldn't hear each other talk. Before we ordered. the server asked if we had been to Tapas D Jerez before and when we said it was our first time, she quickly recommended the $70/person sampler dish for 2 because we could try everything...you can get a smaller sampler for $50/person with plenty of food for 2. The food was flavorful, but the server didn't have time to go over what the plates were. Even if she did, we could not hear. The experience just wasn't what I was expecting...which was a quiet dinner with friends, talking over some nice sangria and food. We might try it again, but more for a night listening to music."

Had a living social, read reviews
and they were mixed. Food was good, nice Spanish wines by the glad even. Tried four tapas between two of us was enough good decent variety as well. Will go back"

really super sangria both white
and red- very tasty! however very noisy, burned taste to paella, tasty artichoke ham and garlic dish, clams with parsley and garlic very few tiny clams and a goopy oily sauce, generally unappealing - very busy spot server was too busy to bring water, etc for quite some time. "

I will definitely return to try
out all their dishes. We had mussels and they were very tasty. I can't wait to eat more."

We love Tapas D'Jerez, their food,
sangria and wine are consistently excellent. The live Flamenco guitar on Saturday nights is worth going for."

Tapas D Jerez has very good tapas
at very good prices. There staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I will recommend this restaurant to family, friends and anyone who likes tasty food. and awesome sangria."

Was really excited to find a
Spanish restaurant that was serving seafood Paella. This is my favorite when I have gone to Soain on numerous visits. The restaurant was very noisy due to the live entertainment and I had trouble communicating with my dinner-business associate due to the noise level. The staff and service was good but the Paella tasted like Rice-a-Roni with some seafood mixed in. Had no flavor. I probably will not return for another meal."

We enjoy this restaurant and have
been here many times. The food is wonderful and the ambience is great. The service is always prompt and courteous. The restaurant served authentic Spanish food."
Dined on 3/23/2014
We loved this place and will
definitely be back. The owner and wait staff are so friendly. There was a guitarist playing in the main area. We had a baby and were able to sit in the back so it was more quiet but could still enjoy the music. We were enjoying all the food up to the paella which was a little disappointing. The Iberico ham and manchego cheese took us right back to Spain. The stuffed peppers were amazing and the lobster soup was delicicious with a nice amount of saffron. Unfortunately the paella was too salty, not very authentic (we were looking for the deep red paella we ate in Spain) and they really skimped with the the seafood. They used imitation tofu crab and popcorn shrimnp. There was very little chicken and chorizo."

We came here to watch the classic
soccer match with a group and had a wonderful time! The food was delicious and service was great! Will definitely be back!"

I decided to try this restaurant
for the seafood paella. Unfortunately the mussels were overcooked and there was crab substitute used instead of real crabmeat. I also had the Serrano ham tapas which was good."
Dined on 3/20/2014
I really enjoyed this place. Very
good food, different and exotic. I am going back.... For sure!"
Dined on 3/19/2014
Went here for Restaurant week and
enjoyed a variety of Tapas and Paella, cooked to perfection. The Sangria was delicioso and refreshing. There was a Flamenco guitarist playing near our table and made the evening more authentic.. Reminded me of our trip to Spain. I will go back!"
Dined on 2/22/2014
This is a Spanish Restaurant, not
to be confused with a Mexican Restaurant. The food was therefore based on a cuisine of Spain, something I was not familiar with. All of the courses were good to excellent except for the clams in broth. The pieces of clam were very tiny compared to the shells they came from. The restaurant did not have our reservation on file, despite having made it online and receiving two email confirmations. It was fortunate that they had room for our group of four when we arrived. I would go to this restaurant again."

Once again Francisco and team
proved they are in it for the long haul. We make it a point to try different dishes with each visit and we are always impressed."
Dined on 3/14/2014
Five of us dined here on March 14,
2013 and not one of us liked the food. If you have any prior, decent experience with quality Spanish tapas, this will be a tremendous let down. The owner and staff present were very pleasant. But the quality of the food was that of food service, mass produced stuff served with a single type of sauce. Boring and bland. Head elsewhere."
Dined on 3/14/2014
This was our first visit, drawn to
Tapas D Jerez for authentic Spanish food and the live music. The cheese tapa was good and the Spanish wine we selected excellent. The remaining food we sampled was not well prepared, even the bread served was not great so it sat on our table. Very disappointed with our meal overall. Great concept for a restaurant but lacks top quality of food preparation. Our waiter, on the other hand, was excellent. As for the live music, the musician moves between two rooms so that was a disappointment as well when the guitarist was moved out of our dining area. Too bad about the food though, probably will not return as a result."

I have not tasted real Spanish
tapas in many years, but this experience brought back all the memories of my first go. This was more than food to put in your face. It was a multisensory experience: smells, colors, flavors and good memories. Our waitress Karina was excellent, timing each new dish like a friendly and knowledgeable drill captain. We also had the treat of listening to live Spanish guitar during the meal. Bravo! The staff were friendly and warm, and our intro appetizer (chicken and spiced vegetables) was unique out of all the other reviews that mentioned it. Our chef seems to me to love cooking good food (with heart and palette) for people to enjoy! Well done! We will be back!"
