    This is one of my favorite places for a date night or to take guests! I normally have the same entrees but I am trying to expand my recommendation list. Last night the Macadamia Mahi entree was enjoyed immensely by my husband. My daughter had the Shrimp Scampi Flatbread which she let me taste and it was delicious! I ordered the Diver Scallop Risotto entree. There were only four scallops (smallest diver scallops I have ever encountered) and the risotto was mediocre! Needless to say that entree did not make the list. We did order the Whiskey Bundt Cake for dessert ... it was underwhelming. The ambiance was great as always and our waitress and the back waiter were excellent, always friendly, timely, and helpful! I still love this restaurant!

    Started with fried squash blossoms and the pork belly gnocchi and both are absolutely fantastic! Enjoyed the swordfish special for the entrée and it did not disappoint, cooked perfectly, generous size and the sauce was delicious!

    Great food to share & an interesting selection of wines by the glass. A good place to go with a group. The peach burrata was my favorite.

    This is our favorite restaurant. Anytime we have out-of-town visitors, eating here is a must. Our server, Bettie, was the best. Instead of someone who just recites the menu, she gave enthusiastic recomendations which was helpful. The food is always wonderful. We have only eaten on the patio where the ambiance is very good and it is always quiet.

    The lovely atmosphere of the Tea House on Los Rios was the perfect ambience in which to celebrate my friend Susie's daughter, Fernanda, after she received her Master's Degree in Social Services at Colorado State University. It was Susie and Fernanda's first time at the Tea House, and they were charmed (as I have always been) by the lovely surroundings, impressed by the elegant tea service, and thrilled by the delicious fare. Our server, Mina, made our visit all the more pleasant with her cheerful, efficient service. Three cheers once again for the Tea House on Los Rios!!
