Disappointing. The charcuterie plate was great. Calamari underwhelming. Caesar Salad was awful. Not dressed at all. For a Valentines Date Night we had scores of other places to choose from. Will not be back, will try somewhere else. However, would recommend others give it a try.
I came to solera with a friend on a Sunday night. We had the Sunday night dinner special where you get a cheese plate, paella, a bottle of wine and dessert for $60. It was such a good deal, but the paella was extremely bland and the rice was over cooked. Everything else was fine, and the service was great, but that paella was very disappointing.
Excellent food, wine, and service. We ordered three different wines by the glass, starters, and we shared paella and two vegetable tapas.
THE best calimari EVER! Fun, friendly servers...quiet, cozy atmosphere...makes you want to linger. The entree’s are so absolutely beautiful and delicious you just want to savor every bite! Like a party in your mouth! The wine was delightful! Solera is not just a restaurant it’s a culinary experience! :DK
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.
Our favorite restaurant
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.
Excellent food and service. Will go again to try their cheese boards and more small plates.
The food was not as good as my last visit. Still a good place to eat to get away from the craziness of downtown.
The food and wine was fantastic . Great atmosphere for dinner. Very professional staff. I will be back.
Solera has thoughtful, well-executed menu with excellent service.
