Setting is beautiful and the menu is creative. Everything we ordered was artfully presented and tasted amazing. Can’t wait to return!
Excellent although we felt we were rushed a little in order to make way for the next sitting.
El Five always delivers the BEST. The best service, the best drinks, the best food and the best ambiance. ❤️
Incredible restaurant with a wide variety of options on food. Out of this world drinks. Highly recommend the Barcelona Gin and Tonics. Staff were very attentive to our large party, and everyone enjoyed the experience.
Food was fantastic, the flavors, sauces all great compliments. Caught a less than stellar wait person on my first visit.
Ambience and views were incredible. The menu (both food and cocktail) were outstanding in terms of variety and options. Every dish was very good - the presentation, flavor profiles, and preparation. We didn’t have a single bad or “off” dish out of around 8 tapas and 1 paella. The service left something to be desired. Our server was not proactive and failed to check in as much as would be expected. The pacing of our dishes felt a bit off as well, but overall we had a very good experience.
We had a wonderful time with some good friends. Our waiter Paul was great. We have awesome tapas and wine. The view is the best!
Everyone was friendly and welcoming! Our server happily took the time to answer our questions, make recommendations, and helped us order the perfect quantity of food. Every dish was delicious and unique. The views of the mountains and the city are spectacular.
What made our experience so nice was that I asked for a quiet table (2 of the people I was with wear hearing aids) -- we were seated in the room which faces west - it was wonderful
brunch menu was great and our waiter was great
Good was stellar this time around although it’s been very good when we’ve gone before. Do yourself a favor and order the Harissa Fries. The “mountain view” side of the restaurant is quieter. It was Very loud on the “city” side.
Great place!! We come here often. Food is always consistent and very good. The Carne Paella is the BEST! This place is good for small groups, date night and any other night! You will not be disappointed!
Great place to eat and socialize. Waiter might as well not been around. Received better service from other staff. Nevertheless, will definitely come back!
Pretty much perfect.
Great food, incredible view, attentive wait staff.
I LIVE for this restaurant. Best service ever! Thanks Drew, Thanks Jack. WOW! The food is the best I have ever had & I travel the world as a foodie. Nothing beats El Five. You are not crowded in (Which is a deal breaker for me). Yes the views are the best in town but the food…Oh my God…the food will make you cry. Great different drinks. We took all of Jack’s suggestions & WOW did he ever hit the mark. See you soon.
Really god food and ambiance.
Excellent service and very nicely seasoned food!
Everything was great!!!! I love this place 😍
Friends were visiting from the Midwest, so we thought this would be a great place to give them a true Denver experience. They were not disappointed, and neither were we!
El 5 is an exquisite place, unique to the Denver scene. The mixture of classic Mediterranean cuisine, Moroccan and Nouvelle concepts makes El 5 a spot to head for. The Chef’s delightful use of spices and unusual meats is an experience that can only be matched by the accompanying stunning scenery of the Denver skyline, which seems to be a prop against the artsy, hipster decor of the restaurant. The staff is knowledgeable and readily available to help your evening become a show stopper...a night you won’t readily forget. Take your best girl, your best friend or your best client to El 5. You won’t regret it.
Great Birthday dinner. Fabulous food. Great view
Perfect date night restaurant
Ambience was really great. Food was good too.
Worth every penny

The atmosphere and service were great! The food was not quite up to par with the price. It was all ok but had extra spices added in that didn't quite jive. Wished for a bit more but very good views and ambiance.
Perfect experience! Beautiful food and a view with great service.
Fabulous! We shall return!
We tried El Five for the first time during restaurant week. What a great experience. The views are amazing from the dining room. The food is wonderful, exciting, and unique. Service was solid. We will be back for sure.
Incredible atmosphere and service! The food was creative and full of flavors I’ve never tasted before. I can’t wait to try this place again in the summer on the patio!
Absolutely remarkable food preparations. Eager to return!
Food is so yummy. Drinks are great. Great views of the city. Worth it!
Fantastic food. Party atmosphere with a DJ. Always incredible views from any side.
Chose El Five to celebrate my husband's 50th Birthday. So glad I did! We were warmly welcomed and he received a Happy Birthday before we even stepped into the dining room. We had the most romantic table in the restaurant... a deuce in the corner overlooking the city! It was spectacular! The food was beautiful and delicious! I can't wait to return when it's warm enough to sit outside!
I’ve been to el five about 7-8 times as it has been our go to for entertaining out of towners. The food for brunch and dinner is usually on point and the service has been as good. This time the stand out dishes were the jamón ibérico, lamb ribs and Turkish pizza. The carne paella was disappointing as it didn’t even have much carne in it. The patatas bravas were mostly good but the powder on top seemed out of place and did nothing for the dish. The shrimp and calamari was almost there but the calamari kind of killed the dish for me as it was bland and maybe just didn’t work texture wise.
I had to knock it down one star after this recent experience since it seemed like the server we had was not in the mood as he wasn’t very friendly, attentive or knew the menu. If you work at a Spanish / Mediterranean restaurant you should know how to pronounce the items so guests wouldn’t need to repeat them selves 4+ times.
First time visit to El Five on Restaurant Week & look forward to going back. Everything was amazing from service to food to setting! The view is wonderful from almost every seat in the place too.
Always a great experience for the entire family. We’ve brought our toddler with us a couple of times now and they always have great options that he enjoys as well. Service and atmosphere are always on point!
This place was awesome! The elevator went out and they informed us that if we still wanted to dine we could take the stairs and have Champaign waiting for us at the top. They did an AMAZING Job! Love it and loved the view. The eggplant fries and steak were DELICIOUS! Can't wait to go back!
Appetizer was very salty compared to past dining experience. They clearly forgot our last 3 orders, as the timing gap in between our first 5 plates and the last 3 was almost 25 minutes. Extra charge for more pita...? It’s not the customers fault that you don’t provide enough pita to start with to consume the hummus.
Excellent cocktail and delicious tapas . The eggplant harissa fried were one of the best things I’ve ever eaten
It was awesome all the way around!
Great food,wine, and ambiance. Few missteps of serving staff during busy restaurant week on a Friday evening but nothing major, and nothing that marred our enjoyment of the evening. Great experience overall. I'll return!
