Requested outside table weeks in advance for birthday, instead got a table inside by the kitchen waiting over 10 minutes for every round of drinks ordered. Watched drinks on the bar waiting forever to be delivered so was not a bartender issue. Got dessert wine 10 minutes after we finished actual dessert. The service is so disappointing, could never recommend.
Amazing view of the city with excellent tapas. Highly recommend for date night.
the food was amazing. we ordered a few tapas and the seafood paella. the plates were so colorful and fresh. need to go again and try the rest of the menu
Wonderful brunch experience. Helpful, respectful, and friendly service. We had a back room table with a view of the Broncos stadium. Although not as nice as the front view it had great ambiance. The food was delicious and the drinks were great although portions were small. We really enjoyed our visit and got a nice group photo on the front patio after.
The view is what got us there... The GF and Vegetarian options are what keep us coming back.
Tasty bites. Cheese croquettes, garlic dip plate and the lamb sausage are all excellent choices.
We really enjoyed our delicious dinner at El Five sitting on the patio. Our server was great and made wonderful suggestions of things to try. We look forward to eating there again!
First year anniversary
Great option for a dinner in Denver as an out of tower. Unluckily, we didn’t get a seat by the self-proclaimed view...But, we still had some above average food!
I went here for my birthday this past Monday expecting great views and a great experience but left disappointed. Low expections we’re set right when I walked up to the hostess who barely acknowledged us because she was too busy talking to her coworker in the back. I told her about my reservation to which she responded “ I don’t think they have a table ready for you but I’ll check”. She phoned someone up stairs and asked if we’d be ok sitting outside, it was really windy that night so I said no. She then said it’d be awhile so I reluctantly agreed to the outside table. The sun was just setting so initially the view was great but after the sun went down there was no lighting at our table and we couldn’t even see the food. On top of that our waiter almost refused to serve me any alcohol because my id was set to expire at the end of that day. The server also didn’t give us any silverware until after the food had been on our table for at least 15 minutes. Also, the only acknowledgement of the occasion (which I put down on the reservation), my birthday, while we were there was when the waiter noticed my I.D was set to expire on my birthday which kind of sucks experience wise. It was so windy glasses started falling off of the table next to me so when the next waiter (who was not my original waiter) came by I promptly asked if my party could be moved inside, to which they obliged. I never saw my original waiter after that which was probably for the best. The second waiter was kinder which is why I’m giving two stars overall but by that time the damage was already done. I wish I had picked somewhere else to celebrate my birthday.
It was an amazing experience!!! We were celebrating our engagement weekend and the service was great!
El Five was perfect!! It was our first visit to Denver and our last night there. El Five was the perfect place to go. The view is outstanding. The service was amazing. The food. Wonderful!! It was the perfect place to wrap up our trip! We completely recommend dining here!!
The "pandemic" menu was a little smaller, so some of our favorite items weren't available to share with the friends we brought... guess we'll just have to come back again!
However, everything we ate was delicious, and the bartender even made one of their cocktails for me that was recently removed from the menu!
This is still one of our favorite restaurants and we'll be back.
The food and cocktails were outstanding. We especially enjoyed the garlic dip and seafood paella. The service was wonderful as always. We've been to El Five several times and this was the first time we were able to enjoy dinner on the patio. The view is as promised, spectacular.
With the current pandemic I would not recommend. The service was very delayed and atmosphere not worth the original value.
As everyone knows it has the best views of any restaurant in Denver. As for the food we can honestly say the Harissa Eggplant Fries is by far one of the best things we have ever ate, ever! Awesome experience and great service.
Really great place. Already recommended it to my co workers and boss!
I would suggest anyone in the Denver area that wants great drinks, service, food, and views should check out El Five right away!
The food was amazing. Lamb sausage was a table favorite
Bigger portions than expected. Ordered 3 tapas and a small paella and had way too much leftovers. Femme Fatale cocktail was a delicious treat. Great skyline views!
The view to the west was beautiful. Our server Josh was perfect and attentive. The food was ALL delicious!
Exceeded my expectations. We got a great table and everything from the service to the food was incredible. The server was very knowledgeable and welcoming. The food was amazing. View is best we have experienced in Denver.
Birthday - everything we ordered was fabulous even the drinks. Our server was amazing. The restaurant took all the precautions. Overall it was a great experience for our first time back at a restaurant.
Fantastic! Food was delicious and service was great.
Great food and drinks! Best way to start your Sunday.
First time .....won’t be my last!
Loved everything ❤️
Loved it as a great place for paella and bday
Made the reservation two weeks in advance and went here because of the advertised “view”. Ended up seated in the back of the restaurant which felt like a hallway. Server was shy and impersonal.
My new favorite restaurant in Denver!! The seafood paella was absolutely incredible. Highly recommend the lamb ribs too!!!
Amazing view with amazing food! Wow!!
I just love their paella and the med appetizer.....those are my faves. Can't beat the views. SO happy they are open!!!!
Incredible bin every sense of the word. Food was out of this world, service impeccable and the ambiance is amazing. The views!!! My favourite Denver food establishment. Thank you to our waiter Justin for making the best suggestions!
The food was fantastic! We tried 4 of the tapas in addition to the appetizer special, that was plenty of food for 2 hungry people. Each dish had a unique flavor profile and was thoughtfully prepared and served. We will definitely go back and would highly recommend! Our only displeasure was that we were sat in this tiny corner table which had nice views of the Denver skyline, but felt like we were missing out on the rest of the restaurant ambiance.
This was definitely a wonderful experience for my friend's birthday. The food was incredible. The drinks were well made and presented. And the views were breath taking! We had a great time and will definitely be back.
Upon are arrival they did not have a table which we requested but asked if inside would be ok. Initially we said yes but after being seated we noticed that our actual table was ready outside. We talked it the host and she politely asked us to wait while it was being cleaned. OMG!! That table was everything for us. This is my fifth time being at El Five and the fist time on the patio. WOW! We were celebrating a very special occasion and with everything going on in the world right now it was the perfect 2 hour escape. Our waitress was friendly and engaging and the food was perfectly coursed out so we didn’t feel rushed. I am floored by our experience and can not wait to share more memories there with friends and family. Thank you
Everything was amazing as always!
We had a fantastic evening here! Wonderful food and the server was great!
great food and service; best views in denver and perfect for large parties.
Jamil was exceptional and even when incredibly busy made sure we were well taken care of.
Great Views, Food, and service. All around a good place to enjoy some tasty food and good drinks!
