Avelina - Denver
Book your next event with us
Good menu options and portion sizes. Perfect holiday dinner with friends.
Outstanding from beginning to end. Very friendly and professional staff. Great energy, extraordinary food ❤️
My husband and I decided to try several shared plates instead of having entrees, saving room for dessert. We started with the pork belly which was delicious, then moved onto the crispy brussels sprouts, which were also tasty (and I'm not a fan of brussels sprouts). Loved the Colorado style meatball and ended with the roasted wild mushrooms which were disappointing, they were so bland. All shared plates were enough for two people to share. My husband ordered the carrot cake ice cream and wished he had ordered a second scoop. I had a cake dish, whose name I can not remember but it came with toffee crystals and ice cream - absolutely decadent!
The food was absolutely delicious. The ambiance very cozy and comfortable. We could have stayed all day. Service was great and unobtrusive. Would definitely recommend and would go again the next time I am at n Denver
Beautiful restaurant, very delicious food and the service was great. The grilled octopus/appetizer, the best I’ve ever had and I am from Miami!
Brought friends for the second time here and we all loved our meals. Had the short ribs, the shrimp scampi, the Agnolotti and the fish of the day, all were great.
Consistently delicious! Excellent service! Easy parking, there are plenty of lots and garages nearby. We love to impress guests, visitors and friends with Avelina's awesomeness. You know exactly what to expect and they never disappoint! I highly recommend the Smoked Salmon Benedict and Beignets....but everything I have tasted is amazing!
Ambience, food and service all fabulous. And all in walking distance from Union Station. Highly recommend!
Food was very good as was service. The cocktails especially the Apple Cider mule were excellent. Definitely recommend Avelina and will go back. Want to try their brunch menu - we were there for dinner.
Great food and warm, personable service. Avelina was a perfect spot for lunch and a glass of wine. Try the short rib grilled cheese—wow.
I celebrated my birthday at Avelina on Saturday night. We had a party of 5 and everything was fantastic. We started with the octopus, pork belly, duck pate, and brussel sprouts for appetizers. Everything was delicious and the octopus was a stand out dish, however, very small of the price. For the entrees, we each had something different. I had the duck and it was amazing. Great flavor. My husband had the short rib which I tasted and it was very good. Overall so nice and the price for 5 people (apps/entrees) with a bottle of wine ($115) was $400. I would highly recommend.
Food was very delicious and beautifully presented! Will be back!
My wife got a new job and to celebrate her last day/transition we went here. We love coming here. Love the comfy lounge and the fun atmosphere. Food is always incredible. We tried a lot of different food as always and share. It’s a great spot. Great drinks as well. No worries when coming here.
I was searching for an excellent restaurant downtown when I saw that this restaurant had availability, on short notice. From the moment we were first seated until the very end when we left the restaurant, the service and staff or nothing but superb. Our server, Angie, was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the menu and was able to answer all of our questions accurately. She was quick to greet us, but also knew exactly when to stay out of the way when we were talking and enjoying our food. We will absolutely return to this restaurant. It is one of the best I have ever been to in Denver.
Wow, what a find! We went for Sunday brunch, had 8 different dishes, and every dish was fantastic! Almond cake, Ricotta Beignets (oh yeah) Chilaquiles, all fantastic. We ranged from Salmon Benedict to Shaksuka, and could not have been happier. Everything was prepared perfectly, give the egg poacher a raise! As someone who "fine dines" out a lot, I truly think this is the best meal I have ever had in Denver. Expert attentive service, excellent food and drinks, nice place, price at brunch very reasonable- what is not to love!
Tasty Food & Amazing Service. We will be back.
The food, atmosphere, and wait staff was good. Had an issue with the hostess. The waitress was awesome! The drinks were well crafted.
Great meal in a nice setting. Delicious appetizers!
Awesome food. Prepared very well with a focus on seasonal foods. The server Crystal was very attention and made some great suggestions. The meal was paced perfectly. The tables are a little small but the chairs were comfortable. Definitely will return.
Our waiter was exceptional and the food was off the chart.
Avelina is our favorite restaurant in Denver! The chef always has a vibrant, seasonal menu with unbelievable flavor combinations. Our only problem is deciding what to order!
The Brussel sprouts were excellent and beet salad were excellent. The chicken salad could of been dressed more, it was on the dry side. The music is truly awful and loud.
Very knowledgeable waiter explained the dishes.
He knew the menu well.
We were a group of 4 "foodie" women who wanted dinner at a reasonably quiet place so we could actually hear each other without shouting. Avelina was perfect. The cocktails and food were creative and well-prepared. Two in our group ordered the Sunday night fried chicken special, another the exceptionally delicious short rib and the 4th person had the scampi over pasta, all of which were delicious. Don't miss the Brussels sprouts with roasted grapes. Avelina offers valet parking on Fridays and Saturdays. We opted to use a ride-sharing service which was wise because parking was very limited, even on a Sunday night.
Great service. Menu options were yum!
Great food, attentive but unobtrusive service.
Absolutely the best restaurant we found in Denver to have a wonderful meal and a nice conversation with friends, without the football game, yelling drunks, large parties and obnoxiously loud music, and no one talking above 90db.
Every dish we had was fantastic but the charcuterie board and the octopus's were standouts. The wine list was small but very well represented and one of my favorites, Cherty Pie pinot, was there. Service was warm, attentive, and never waited till first bite to say something stupid like, everything great for you....and never interrupted our conversation. Maybe one top 10 resturants in world for me. I've been on all 7 continents and eaten at many top rated places all over the world but very few have the mix of ambience, service, and stellar food Avelina has assembled.
Great service, amazing food, reasonable prices. Definitely going back!
food was delicious, the server was great, ambiance was romantic. A great experience!
Dominic is a killer attentive server. Very impressed. Great food. We will be back.
Very good food. Great service. Would def go back
Engagement! amazing!! Jen you rock! Great food!
Don't plan on an intimate dining experience at a table for two, uncomfortably close to our neighbors. Lucky for us it was a beautiful fall evening where it was a great evening to dine El fresca. Great food and wonderful service.
We went on a Thursday and the restaurant was full most of the night and, as a result, somewhat loud. The food was fantastic. We had several small plates including the octopus, beef carpaccio, tuna tartare, and wild mushrooms. All were superbly prepared. Service was attentive and friendly. We would definitely go again.
Just lunch and just perfect. Not sure why or how this restaurant still flies “under the radar” these days.
Great food and great service for dinner - a bit loud though
This place was OK...nothing that I would remember enough to recommend to a friend, but passable for a business lunch.
This is incredible Indian food. Some of the best we have had. However, music is loud and service is on the slower side.
Delicious and great service! Love the food and menu had some great selections with plenty of veggies :-) which is not always the case. Good wine list too.
