I went for dinner with my boyfriend and we had an amazing time. The staff was nice and the food came quickly since it was tapas. The food reminded me of my trip to Spain so I definitely recommend it if you want a little taste of Spanish food. The wine list isn't big but the few they have are delicious. You have a few bars on the same street if You ever want to go for an after dinner drink. Larimer square is also not far ! Great place and ambiance!

Beautiful atmosphere and fun central location. Rating the value lower because portion sizes were skimpy. My friends left feeling hungry even though we spent about $40pp. The food was all good, and some dishes were really good. Wines by the glass were also a little expensive with pours slightly on the small side. Overall a lot of fun and nice service though.

The sangria and tapas were awesome. Our favorites were the fried goat cheese with honey, the lamb lollipops, and the beef filet. The lemon flan was amazing as well. Our server was great. Very knowledgeable and quick.

Food was great- best tapas I have had in a while and the server was very knowledgeable about Spanish cuisine. We came with a Spanish friend who did all the ordering and he approved! Everything we ate was delicious.

This was probably my most disappointing experience here. I've been on several occasions in the past and this was by far the worst. Almost all the food we ordered hot came out lukewarm. One item was practically frozen in the center . It will probably be awhile before I consider coming back after this visit.

Flavor was excellent. Great customer service. Enjoyed the ambiance for our double date. But, please. Why are they serving their tapas in THREES! It must be WAY more common to seat parties of 2 or 4. We increased our plates to 4, but it exponentially increased the price.
Still, so yummy.

The food is delicious and service was great. I did find the noise level quite loud and at times made conversing with our friends (only 4 in our party) difficult. Both the music and sound level from other patrons made it hard to hear. The cost per plate was also somewhat high for what you got, but I enjoyed the food/tapas so much that Inwould return and would recommend the restaurant to others.

We love going to the 9th door and always enjoy the food and service. This time was no different. We brought friends to thank them for a favor they did for us. We tend to always order the same thing, so it was nice to try things our friends wanted to order. We were not disappointed, so now we have even more favorites. Part of the reason we like to go to 9th door is it is great for conversation, as the plates come out as they are prepared. You never end up with too many plates littering the table. A suggestion given by our server was perfect. She said to order about 4 small plates (there were 4 of us) to share with our first glasses of wine, then order when we were done with those and ready to order the additional plates. The servers are really good at suggesting number of plates per table, and offering suggestions. There is a wide variety so there is something for everyone.

As always, the food was delicious. Other than what seemed like long time for initial contact by our server, the service was spot on - just the right level of checking in without becoming bothersome. The music playing was loud but that did not inhibit conversation at our table. The cocktails we ordered tasted great and were not shorted alcohol. We left full and happy customers.

We decided to go for an early dinner- which I don't think is the appropriate time to go to this restaurant. It was awkwardly empty with club dubbed 80's music blasting through the place. The overall ambiance was just conflicting, but our waiter was quite attentive, and the food was good. I think all in all, maybe it just wasn't the kind of scene we were looking for that night.

They've got a great happy hour with many tasty, but inexpensive, tapas. Also, they have both red and white sangria. The white sangria was my favorite. Also some excellent specials of the day. We had a really good paella.

My friends and I all loved this place! The service was outstanding, we all loved the food and all loved the wine. We like the Spanish decor and the noise level was low enough for us to have a lively conversation without having to SHOUT at each other. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends!

While visiting Denver, we dined at the recommendation of a friend from home. Our friend grew up in the Denver area. It is her favorite restaurant. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere, food, and service were outstanding.

The 9th Door is an excellent tapas restaurant with very tasty and unique plates. Everything we ordered was well prepared and flavorful. We will be going back because we were not able to get everything we anted on the menu. Our service was excellent and made sure we were on time to our concert that evening. The risotto & mushroom crouchette and ribs were spectacular. Save room for the lava cake.
