Great food and margaritas.
We made a reservation because and got seated right away during the busiest hour. Water, salsa and chips were brought immediately and our cup/bowl never ran dry. The noise level was so extreme we could barely communicate our order to the waiter. I typically think it’s weird for a couple to sit on the same side of a booth but this was the first time I understood the need for it, if we wanted to have any conversation at all. The house margarita on the rocks is one of the best margaritas I’ve ever had, we drank two and ate quickly. The steak and portobello fajitas were fantastic, but a little light on the veg. Chili con queso w/chorizo was thick and creamy, stellar food at a fairly steep, yet worth it price.
Great place to eat. Best Margaritas in town.
We always have a great time and enjoy the food. The margaritas are just icing on the cake
Great service and amazing margs and guac a definite cut above normal Tex mex
Best margaritas in Denver for sure - a Colorado classic in any of their locations
Dinner for a bachelorette party before going out. Yummy margs!
The server was very attentive! Meal prep was outstanding
The staff was so accommodating as my guest was 45 minutes late but I was seating at the time of my reservation and I was able to munch on nachos and sip on a margarita until the guest showed. Great drinks, food, and excellent service.
Fantastic, as always!
Busy night, but we got seated right away because of our OpenTable reservation. We loved the baked chile rellano stuffed with veggies, and also the pork burrito. But I was sorry to see that the menu no longer carries the grilled fish taco plate - it was a nice option for those of us trying to eat healthy.
Great service and excellent food!!
Absolutely nothing special, completely ordinary, everything is ok. Service was very good, food was just typical Tex mex. Nice place to have a drink, and enjoy friends that's all.
Poor service, food came soggy.
Best margaritas I've ever had. Order house version, rocks/salt.
The food was expensive for the portions, the hostess at the front was very rude, the music was extremely loud so you had to basically scream to talk to someone at your table.
Good food. You don’t get a lot for how expensive it is. We waited a long time for our food. Music was too loud. Food was really good
The young hostess was very rude. I asked for a table for 7 but thought maybe 5 and she said” is it 5 or 7(?)“ and made the table with a huge attitude. No reason for it. Service was slow but waitress was very nice.
It was meh
The server was great and food were good. The restaurant gave away our 7:15 reservation because my party of 5 arrived at 7:22. We sat at 7:45 at a cramped 4 top bar table
Excellent service and the food is everything you’d expect from a quality restaurant like Sushi Den.
I loved the food! Yum! Also I appreciated that you can order a mini margarita. Our server was so friendly and attentive. I’m so glad I went and look forward to going again sometime.
The margaritas are the best around town. Food is okay. Service was excellent.
It was amazing
The chili rellanos are terrific here. Sitting outside is a lot quieter on a night that the Pepsi Center is having an event.
Great place to meet up with friends. Great food, service, and drinks. A little high on the price for Mexican food but, it was all tasty. My wife and I met up with our friends after walking for Uptown which was an easy walk (down hill from Capital Hill). We all enjoyed our dinners. Service was great and not pushy to get us out for the next group of people.
Gran lugar para reunirse con amigos. Buena comida, servicio y bebidas. Un poco alto en el precio de la comida mexicana, pero todo estaba delicioso. Mi esposa y yo nos encontramos con nuestros amigos después de caminar por Uptown, que fue una caminata fácil (cuesta abajo desde Capital Hill). Todos disfrutamos nuestras cenas. El servicio fue excelente y no agresivo para sacarnos para el próximo grupo de personas.
It was a fun spot- a bit expensive for what it was...
we went during their happy hour - five people and the bill was under $100, and we were all quite full. Drinks included. The service was great - the food was awesome. Definitely recommend (especially for the happy hour!)
This is a great place to meet up with friends for great margs and delicious Mexican food. Try the atomica salsa with your chips!
Server gave us the check before we could order our last margs.
We. Come here 1 a moth at least as a group
Food was very average. Nothing special what so ever. Service was average. Drinks were good and atmosphere was good.
I would not recommend this to a friend. There are plenty of Mexican/Latin/Central American fares around Denver that are much tastier. Oh well! Live and learn!
Excellent spot, will definitely be back. Best chile relleno I’ve ever had. Steal burrito is excellent too.
Steak and shrimp fajitas were amazing! The patio with beautiful
Steak was well done when ordered medium. They just brought out a new steak and “Slid” it on my old plate.
We had a large ground and were handled well. Everyone enjoyed their meal. My husband always gets the steak burrito and loves it.
GREAT FOOD! AMAZING SERVICE! BEEN HERE BEFORE BUT SOOOO MUCH BETTER THIS TIME
Please please please keep a version of the queso verduras on the menu. The current special version with poblano rajas is killer.
Special green salsa is bright and wonderful!
Our server forgot to bring my salad and brought my second glass of wine so late that I almost canceled it. I had tacos that were very small but good. My wife had quesadillas that were excellent and my daughter had stake fajitas that were great. Would recommend and would go again but wouldn't get tacos and would hope for a better server.
Waitress never brought more chips. Sauce for the chicken burrito was watery (green chili). Palisade peach special sopapilla was nothing special. Added about 1/4 peach.
We’ve been very pleased with Rio Grande, but not this time.
