Enjoyed a lovely lunch of tapas and Sangria to celebrate my friends' birthday. The gazpacho and jamon wrapped dates were amazing. Lots of good choices on the menu and our server was very helpful with chouces and amounts to order. Service was great. The Union Station patio ambience was fantastic!

Great food. Good for sharing. Service was slow for a weekday lunch hour. Also extremely hot inside. Walking into the terminal was significantly cooler.

This place serves very authentic Spanish Tapas. The jamon is to die for! Try the croquettas and the patatas bravas, both very good . The only issue we had was the slow service.

The service was slow but otherwise good. We ordered various tapas and they were all good or very good. We particularly liked the Gildas and the croquetas. The Gildas had an assertive but not overwhelming flavor and they did not skimp on the ham in the croquetas. The order of olives was small given the price. I wish a little bread was provided. The patatas bravas had a tasty sauce the I would have liked to finish up with bread and my experience of Spanish (in Spain) restaurants is that bread comes with nearly any meal. I am sure they don't want customers filling up on free bread but providing a bit would add a touch of Spanish culinary generosity.

I took my wife here for Mother’s Day. The food is absolutely amazing, very different but just phenomenal. The serving sizes are perfect for two and you are able to try many different dishes without having to spend an arm and a leg. Our service was top notch. This was our second visit and we will definitely be back!

I was disappointed with the food and sangria for the most part. The sangria did not have much flavor and it tasted water down. Burger was good, tortilla española so so, jamón serrano sandwich to salty for my taste (not suppose to warm up the jamón and they did). They forgot the croquetas de jamón and when it arrived to the table they were cold/frozen in the inside. The front desk personal were super attentive and friendly.

Our server was a delight with her warm welcome and a smile. She accommodated us by warming up the tuna peppers a bit. They and the mussels were delicious. Thanks for a relaxing dinner.

Every time I go to Denver, I eat at Ultreia. It's one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. They have great gin cocktails, plus a long list of sherries, and so many other wines by the glass it's really hard to know where to start. The small plates are wonderful, you feel like you're in Spain with a mouthful of anchovy, olive, and pepper. It's a great place to sit at the bar and try several little plates. The food is simple, made from high-quality ingredients, very Spanish with its cheese selection and charcuterie. I love the atmosphere with high ceilings and Victorian-style wall paintings. Knowledgeable staff. I usually come to Denver when my husband is at a convention and eating with clients, so this is a place I feel comfortable coming to alone and sitting at the bar. Not inexpensive, for sure, but if you're going to spend some money, do it right. The acoustics are difficult--I made friends with the people sitting next to me at the bar but couldn't hear a darn thing they said without shouting. Why not figure out some baffling on the ceiling or something--that is one loud box!

The food is good, the gin & tonics are wonderful but the smell is awful. It’s smoky and there isn’t good ventilation. I was wearing a leather jacket and now it smells of fried fish.

In the summer you can sit outside which takes care of the smell issue but in the winter don’t go wearing anything that you can’t wash easily.

I was pleasantly surprised that we waited very little time to get into the restaurant. The service was very good. The food that we ordered was very good but the menu was limited. I wished the menu had had more tapas options but what they did have was very good.

Unfortunately this was a disappointment. Had heard good reviews, however the food fell short of expectations. Do not order the chorizo. Waitress was very pleasant though and the wine was decent.
