The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. I’m from Houston, which is foodie heaven, so I’m always skeptical when I try places like this in other cities. Señor Bear did not disappoint! We had some mezcal and tequila shots (for a birthday celebration), the tuna ceviche, the mofongo (a major highlight), and the steak. For dessert, we had churros and ice cream, which were SO good! Highly recommend, and will happily come back here next time I’m in town.

The food was incredible. The table was ready right of way and they let us sit outside. Our server was super knowledgeable and didn’t rush us. Great evening overall.

The service and food were excellent. My friend and I did the picnic basket (where the chef chooses the dishes to send out) and it was worth every penny! There was not one dish that we enjoyed less than the others. Can't wait to go back and try the brunch!

Wonderful, creative food. Excellent service - our waitress was extremely knowledgeable about the food and drinks. The other staff were attentive and thoughtful. Will definitely return for a special occasion. Pricey...but Denver is getting that way, I guess.

Excellent as always, best happy hour food and drinks in Denver. Only disappointment was that this was our second time in a row here where the frozen marg machine was broken, and the frozen margs are kind of the reason we came this time. Hope it is fixed soon. But still had a great meal and excellent drinks.

We got the bear picnic basket, and there was no indication on the menu that this price was per person, so we thought it would be a great thing to split. When the bill came we were very shocked to see that it was indeed per person...meaning our meals were $45 each. The food was amazing, and was probably worth the price, but we didn't expect it to be so much, so it really dampened the experience. Service was kind of stoic and slow as well.

We had a party of 4 and all agreed to the bear basket which made it very enjoyable and I feel like we got to try a large portion of the menu and it was all delicious. We left very full and it seemed like a good value. We'll definitely go back again. We did go on the earlier side of things too and that might have helped with the noise level.

My only issue was the tables were very close together and when I got up to use the restroom I literally felt like I was sticking my butt in the next tables food because I could only get out from my seat by walking sideways.

We were a party of 6 and I believe we all enjoyed our meals. Mine in particular was very unique (the short ribs). I was disappointed there was no dessert that highlighted or even included chocolate, but I didn't really need dessert, anyway. The noise level was very high, but that seems to be common in so many restaurants these days. I have to say that was my only major complaint, but it's either learn to deal with it or stay away.

I have to come back and try the rest of the menu. That ensalada da casa was the perfect starter to share and I loved the empanadas. Our server was excellent! I highly recommend this spot and dont know what took me so long to come check it out.

The food was interesting and delicious. We were seated on the sidewalk patio but also enjoyed the indoor bar and the overall vibe of this gem. We enjoyed the Shrimp & Octopus Ceviche, Empanadas, Patatas, and Brócoli Saltado. Presentation was beautiful. We also loved the cinnamon-tinged coffee, churros and Mango Sorbet and for dessert. Can't wait to go back.

I’ve been wanting to visit this place for a long time because we are in the neighborhood but hadn’t had the chance until yesterday.

It did not disappoint! This place is fantastic. The food is amazing and the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly.

Chef Sebastian you are a true genius in the kitchen and we enjoyed everything you put together. We will be back soon!

We did the chef basket, and everything was great. It was too much food but it was so fun to try the different items. Also, the spicy margarita was the best I’ve had in Denver. And the ambiance is on point. Would definitely recommend!
