Great atmosphere at this Tapa's Bar. We sat outside to people watch and enjoy the great Denver weather. The Calamari de Cordero (Calamari), were crunchy little bites of deliciousness and the Spanish sauce complemented the dish perfectly. Carne de Cerdo, (Ribs with a Pineapple Brandy sauce are a must, saucy, sweet and a little spicy. Get the Albondigas, (Lamb Meatballs),... More

Three of us enjoyed a great meal here during Denver's Restaurant Week. We had great service, excellent red sangria, and shared two of the $35 restaurant week menus and added on a couple other tapas dishes. That was a perfect amount for us and we didn't feel like we each needed to order a full menu. The 9th door has... More

We love dining at the 9th Door. The food is always amazing, and the wine selection is fantastic. The atmosphere is fun, and the service staff offers a great experience.

I had pretty high hopes with this restaurant from all the reviews. My boyfriend and I made reservations and had the worst experience ever. The waiter was so unfriendly, kept grunting and making us feel bad for asking any questions. The food was brought out with no explaining. We were seated before it got crowded and was served last. We... More

Let me tell you what a mess this place is. I called 3 weeks ago to get my reservation for restaurant week. We had 12 people in our party. First of all they have a crazy cancellation policy, but whatever, I went with it. They require a credit card upfront and you must complete a cancellation policy form (They will... More

We visited during Denver Restaurant Week. They offered two hot and cold tapas menus and the full regular menu as well. Three in our party went for the DRW special menu and I chose a few items off the regular menu. We arrived early for our reservation, seated while we waited for the other couple who found difficulty parking on... More

This was the 4th time eating there over a 18 month period. The service was not as good as the past, slow and not checking getting drinks and new tapas orders. Also no deep fried avocado ( one of our favorite dishes) any more ☹️ will try a different tapas place next time we are in Denver.

Second Christmas Eve dinner. Lovely. Will go again for 2017. Small plates are great for sampling and service is great. But tables are very close so intimacy is not to be expected. Cocktail prices are good. Wine by the glass is pricey. But still a very enjoyable dining experience

Spanish Tapas....loved this dinner....great servers, nice lighting, soft music and the food was so good. We had the quinoa and arugula Salad, scallops, ribs, artichokes and calamari...with very nice wines! My only suggestion would be to order more slowly....
