Señor Bear is the best place I have eaten in Denver. I never leave reviews but this was my second time here and I was again blown away. The churros alone are worth the visit. I have decided that it would be part of my last meal. Honestly it would be okay if it were just the churros.

Please eat here.

Really good imaginative food! Exceptional service and a cool vibe. Noise level a little loud(drunk people at bar) made conversation challenging at our table but overall a great experience. Definitely will return!

The food was amazing - the only thing keeping it from a 5star review was the noise level. We went on a Sunday to avoid the weekend crowds, but the place was so loud we could barely hear each other. The food and service were so good, we will go back but wish it was a lot less noisy.

We dropped into Senor Bear and were very happy we did. The menu is well-conceived, the wine list covers all the bases and the atmosphere is inviting. Our dinners were excellent, the service was warm and friendly. It is a quality restaurant and we will certainly return soon.

Señor Bear is likely a good place if you live in the neighborhood and want an easy option. We came from downtown after reading reviews, and were disappointed. Food was so-so, not well presented/plated, and came out in haphazard order. And, no draft beer?

It was the best birthday meal anyone could ask for. Got there just to enjoy happy hour and transition into dinner. Our server was a highlight. She nailed the recommendations and let us sample the seasonal frozen margs. Excellent and a must try for anyone in Denver... and then repeat!

This was our first visit to Señior Bear, and it will not be our last! Every dish we ordered was excellent, unique, and packed with flavor, and the frozen pumpkin, peach, mango punch was delicious as well. We had fried plantains, an autumn squash side dish, coconut rice, and we shared a half chicken dish that was absolutely outstanding. Service was attentive, and friendly, and everyone on the staff seemed genuinely happy to be there. If you're looking for high quality food that is truly inspired, Señior Bear is a great option!

Very good experience. Great food and service, the hostess was awesome and I spoke to her earlier in the day since it was our anniversary. The meal was fun and "fit for foodies" for sure. You sort of sit close to the other tables, so luckily everyone around us seemed very nice and weren't too loud, but overall the place has good energy. I would definitely recommend.

Celebrating Bar exam passing, went out to dinner for a date and enjoyed shared plates and frozen drinks making it feel like we couldn’t have landed at a better spit to enjoy ourselves that night.

Our waiter was so kind and did a wonderful job of explaining the menu and bringing out the courses in a thoughtful order. The food was very flavorful and we loved every bite! We were celebrating our anniversary and they brought out a complimentary glass of wine, which we thought was very thoughtful and nice. Will definitely recommend this place to others!

Fantastically delicious! 3 of us had a variety of plates shared family style. Empanadas were the favorite of the 2 non-vegetarians, broccoli was the favorite of the vegetarian. But you can't go wrong. If you are really hungry, do the prix fixe menu.

Had a seat on the patio on a really nice evening. Nice buzz but not too loud. Chose the picnic basket and all food was delicious. Meal ended with churro served with a brown butter "custard" which was basically brown butter and brown sugar-heavenly! Awsome wait staff and hostess. Excellent and very spicy margaritas!
