Excellent food and service. Can’t wait to go back.
Amazing food and excellent wine. It felt spacious and safe amid COVID restrictions and this was our first time eating out in quite some time. I ordered the Parpadelle con Setas which I would highly recommend.
We had the salmon tempranillo and a mahi mahi special, both of which were excellent. The desserts weren't as good. Our server was very attentive,
Gambas al ajillo were on point, Batatas a la Brava could've been more spicy and the Albóndigas were unimpressive. Specialty tapa with Octopus and Scallops were flat, need to be more creative with the flavors there.
Osobuco, Gnocchi and carrots were good as a combination, the meat alone was a bit dry.
the restaurant's atmosphere is warm and welcoming we arrived a few minutes late but we were very well received, the delicious food our fantastic wine and the attention of Marcelo who made our New Year's Eve night the best we received, thank you very much we will recommend it to our friends and we will surely return
Cena de Año Nuevo 2021. La comida deliciosa como siempre y el servicio muy amable y atento.
La pasamos increíble!
Awful. Won’t return. They are acting like COVID doesn’t exist. Operating at full capacity. Crowded.
The service here is always excellent as is the food. The staff are kind and helpful. So is the management/owners. We have been coming here for years whenever we are in town and will continue to do so. They did a great job this new year's eve with masks and keeping tables apart.
Unlike some of the negative reviews on this restaurant, this review is nothing but positive. Not sure why folks write bad reviews on this establishment (probably because they are all Karens). Great food and beverages and service. One of the best restaurants in the area.
The name would indicate a focus on Spanish/Mexican cuisine but this is misleading. There are dishes from many areas including a great pasta selection. The bartender made a great Manhattan and the calamari was a different presentation than I have had but I really enjoyed the combination with chorizo. The restaurant and staff do what they can to reduce the spread including wearing masks and gloves. If you are looking for something out of Aspen and much more affordable give Temporanillo a try.
23rd birthday dinner for my son and his roommates. Everything was excellent, food, service and atmosphere.
The food was AMAZING! Every single thing we tried was very good. Even the kids menu food. The black paella wow. The goat cheese tapas were super delicious. We will be back.
Excellent , creative menu combining Spanish tapas and Italian cuisine. Great atmosphere and great service
Always a great experience!
I had reserved outdoor table. They were not serving outside. I changed the time to 2pm and we were told the chef left early. No communication between site and establishment
There was a bit of a hiccup with our reservation but the bartender saved the day. We had the end of the communal table right in front of the fireplace with plenty of distance from other diners. We shared the excellent fried artichoke and the calamari, then branzino,lobster ravioli and penne. All of us loved our food and the ambiance.
We had a Covid Friendly ladies lunch today! We all agreed that this will be a once a week thing with our “bubble”! Only here because the food, the service, the everything is absolutely perfect! Ask for Bob the server/bartender. And the owners Laura and Javier are the best! You will be taken care of each and every time! We will be back next week! Thanks again! SO much fun! And the food is always on point! Yum!!!
The food was amazing and the service was exceptional! Loved our table near the fireplace. The gluten-free fried calamari was a real treat for me. (I have severe reaction to gluten.) There are many gluten-free options available. Highly recommended!
Tempranillo is our favorite restaurant in the valley- hands down. We bring our young kids and they love it too. We are always welcomed and the food is always 5 stars!
Had a really nice night at this establishment. Our waiter was fun and energetic and the food was great. Staff did a good job respecting social distancing and spreading us out. Frankly, the food is better than almost all of the the food in Aspen, where we live. Thank you to waiter Robert C.
Delicious food! And we appreciate how conscientious Tempranillo is during this Covid situation! Table distancing and mask wearing was welcome!
Great Service! It is always a good experience ! .
Wonderful food and atmosphere
Wonderful service! Grilled octopus, chiopino, and spaghetti vongole...all were fantastic! Definitely the best restaurant in our area for Mediterranean food and wine. Also, special evening prices for locals, couples, etc.
The food was great the service was great the nice waitress could not have been better love the restaurant will be back again soon
To me, Tempranillo is the best place in the valley. Everything is just delicious, interesting flavors, extremely well prepared. There are also some fantastic vegan options. Highly recommend!
Outstanding food, service and wine selection.
Might be the best veal marsala ever had - world wide!
Excellent staff, attentive service, but not intrusive.
Couldn’t have been better. Wonderful service at the bar. The variety of Tapas we’re excellent and very tasty. Lovely meal altogether!
Great outdoor seating area, servers were kind and attentive to COVID protocols. Wine list is a delight, we had two wines that were exceptional. Also very good cocktails. The fried artichoke hearts were an excellent start and we really enjoyed the other tapas we ordered. What a gem!!
My first time dining at Tempranillo and it was terrific. We all had different dishes and everyone enjoyed their meals: paella, grilled tuna filet, Osso Bucca. We were able to eat outdoors.
What a wonderful find! We drove over from Aspen to check out Basalt and couldn’t have landed better! Our server, Patrice, guided us to a yummy dry white Basque wine to start and then a very tasty Tempranillo red for dinner (much better value than the $$$$ wines at some Aspen places). We went the Tapas route - all delicious. Def a return visit in store😁😁!
This was our second visit to Tempranillo. It was amazing. Our server, Adam, was personal, professional and fun. He added to the positive experience for sure. We had the Carpaccio Salad, which was the evening special salad and several tapas choices. All were excellent. My husband lived the Ahi Tuna and the grilled shrimp tapas. We also had two of the calamari choices. All great. And, not to forget, the excellent drinks. I had two Manhattans and my husband had a gin and tonic. Great food, service and ambience.
Can’t get back soon enough.
Always good food and service. Try to have dinner at Tempranillo every time we are in the area and it never disappoints. I usually have a pasta dish which is always prepared in a creative way.
Our food was delicious - the paella was rich in flavor, could be divided by 2. It was a busy night and a little short staffed, so patience is a virtue. Just relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
I got engaged on the patio
The whole Resturant clapped and engaged in the celebration
No one from the staff or even our waiter acknowledged that it even happened
That was kind of disappointing
I got engaged and it was very special on the patio
Loved everything here. Delicious food. Fabulous, attentive service.
Always great and I love supporting a local business
The best Resturant in the area. Everything is just like having a burst of flavor in your mouth. Could go every night the menu is extensive. Fantastic flavors it’s hard to choose what to have so you’ll want to go many times to try different delicious things.
Always enjoy this spot!
