Solera Restaurant & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Solera was one of my favorite place to eat in Denver. In the late Summer of 2017, my friends and I had two terrible meals at Solera and I expressed my disappointment in a review on Open Table. Fast forward to Jan 2018. My wife and I decided to try Solera again and we are glad we did. The arrival of a new Chef and wait staff has brought Solera back to it's past glory. The new menu is creative, well presented, and very tasty. A shout out to our server Ivan. Ivan made great suggestions and anticipated our needs. Solera is back on my list of great Denver restaurants
Everything was perfect from the moment we walked in. The food was amazing as was the wine. Our server, Ivan, was not only friendly and professional, he helped us with all our food and drink choices and they were impeccable. Thanks, Solera, for a great date night and for a wonderful, warm and romantic table 🥂
A neighborhood gem. Cozy and quiet dining room perfect for date night or couples dinner. Limited menu but everything we tried was superb. Tapas especially. Server sensed when to bring plates and not rush us through our meal. Overall an excellent dining experience and highly recommended. Prices were a good value.
I was disappointed Solera's menu did not reflect their menu online. I chose Solera because their online menu said they had octopus but it wasn't on the Tapas menu, nor were the Berkshire short ribs. I ended up having two appetizers for my main meal; the meatballs which were tasty and a Pappardelle pasta with pork belly. When received I saw no pork belly. The waiter said the pork belly was more of a broth? I was not pleased. My husband however liked his Paella and his brother enjoyed the fish of the day which was Trout. I found the menu limited. There were only a few fish entrees, an Atlantic salmon, the Paella and the Trout special that night. I think I had my heart set on having the Octopus . My husband and I also shared the Spicy Cucumber cocktail and found it to be lackluster with lots of ice. Desserts were just OK. Solera's online menu is worthy. Now they need to have available what they claim to have on the menu! They do have a nice Farmer's Board of cheeses and salami's/hams. One could nicely make a dinner from their Farmer's Board along with a couple Tapas and have a satisfactory meal.
Another successful dining experience. We met some business colleagues turned friends for a wonderful shared small plate evening. We started with martinis and mules and then transitioned to a Spanish Malbec. The calamari was on-point per usual. The fondue was excellent though a little light on sun choke chips. The gambas were not as flavorful as I would have liked, but other really enjoyed the dish. The highlight was the rib with couscous. It was outstanding and fall apart tender. We will return!
We enjoy Solera on a few occasions during the year. We were there on a Tuesday so I took advantage of all you can eat mussels. They prepare them in 3 different sauces and I tried two of them. The curry one was spicy and very good.
My hubby likes their calamari for a main meal. I ordered fries with mine and the waiter said it was $3 extra but when we got the bill it was showing $6. He did correct it. This is a comfortable place and we will be back.
Usually love this restraurant, but this time was extremely disappointing. Portion sizes were much smaller. Duck was under cooked. Scallops were salty. Paella was bland. 1 of our 5 entrees was actually good. Dinner took forever and service was ok at best. Very disappointed as this has been one of our staples for years. Won't go back anytime soon!!!
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner. The food was exceptional, especially one of the special fish dishes. The service was excellent, and the patio is so pleasant. We look forward to going back.
One note: this restaurant seems to attract people who like to dine on the early side. Our reservation was for 8, which is normal for us, but we ended up really closing the place down and feeling a little bad we stayed so long. No one made us feel bad - everyone was very nice - but next time we'll book a little earlier.
This is one of our favorite spots - especially on warm summer nights. The patio is incredible and the food is amazing. Have never had a bad experience at Solera. And I remember many good Sunday evenings with a nice glass of rose enjoying the fabulous outdoor dining!
We were seated on the patio, which is lovely and much quieter than expected for the location. Rain moved in, and we were quickly and politely shown to a new table inside with zero fuss. The food was superb, and our waiter was very helpful with unfamiliar menu items (particularly cheeses). I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice dinner out.
My wife and have been eating at Solera for several years. We've been impressed with the service, food and wine. Our last two visits were subpar. Food remains great. The service is terrible. It appears the entire wait staff turned over. We could always count on Joe to guide us to great wine pairings. Tonight when my guest asked Alan about a specific wine to pair with her meal, he said any white would due. When asked about specific wines, he could not describe them. We sat down at 7:05. At 7:20 we were asked about drinks. They arrived 30 minutes later. At 8:00, Alan came by to take our order. The rest of the meal continued with the same terrible service. Me. Sorensen place fix your service issues
We had a fabulous time at Solera. The Sunday paella special was extremely delicious and affordable. (Includes a bottle of wine, cheese/meat plate, paella entree, AND dessert all for $60/2 people!) The chocolate bread pudding was one of the best desserts I've had in a long time. Not to mention, the service was fantastic and we had the whole gorgeous patio to ourselves. Will definitely return.
Our first visit and we will definitely be back. We had the Sunday special dinner "paella for two" and were very pleased and found it to be a good value. The menu offers a lot of other enticing items as well, and we're looking forward to returning.
Wayne, our server, was simply outstanding: attentive and a real gentleman. The indoor dining room is comfortable, the ambient music allowing for quiet conversation. The outdoor patio looks ideal for when the weather is fair.
Solera is not inexpensive, but the menu is ambitious and the kitchen impressed us on this first visit.
