First time visiting tonight. The food quality and taste were beyond any expectations I had! The seared venison was delicious. The real winner of the restaurant is their signature artichoke tortellini....

"Just go. You'll thank me later. Our bartender from Edina, MN went out of his way to make our visit amazing. What an amazing place with incredible staff. I would go back to Denver just to go here. Thank you so much for the amazing time and incredible food. So glad we came."

"Nick was an awesome waiter. He went the extra mile to make our anniversary dinner special. The food was exceptional! I wanted to try EVERYTHING! We were so glad that the hostess made the effort to call us back when we left a voicemail. Ten stars!"

"We haven’t been here for several years, so glad we came back! The lamb burger and sweet potato fries are amazing! The smoke on the lamb was crazy good! The potatoes were freshly cut, so delicious. Also had the Brussel spouts salad with shrimp. The shrimp was perfectly cooked, and seasoned so well. Then, the deserts💕. The beignets are just incredible, very unique and the perfect portion. The Brownie was very good as well. Service was amazing, too. We will be back soon!"

"Service. The reservation process was easy and accessible. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. Atmosphere. My husband and I sat inside at a quiet table near the kitchen and were pleased that we were comfortably able to hear each other from across the table. I was surprised to see how much TLC the establishment needed. Menus worn and marked. Paint needs touch ups, vents and light fixtures were dusty, and a lamp by our table was crooked and wobbly. Not what I'd expect at this price point, but also not immediately obvious. Outdoor seating. It's February and cold outside after dark. On the way in, I couldn't help but notice everyone sitting in the outdoor tent were wearing their winter coats, so I'm glad we were able to eat inside. Food. We had the Amish chicken and Tri-tip steak, and both were phenomenal in taste. The entrees we're beautifully presented, and so juicy, tender, and perfectly seasoned. There's a full wine list with some cocktails and sherry, and shortly after arriving a server brought by an impressive bread basket. All the bread choices were delicious, particularly (IMO) the focaccia. For dessert, we ordered the caramel bourbon cheesecake and warm fig beignets. Each was delicious, sized perfectly for one person, and artistically plated. Overall, I'd recommend Rioja for an romantic dinner, a night out with friends, or a even a meal with colleagues. We saw one family with a kid, but I didn't notice any kid-friendly menu choices. Besides, I'd think kids might get restless in this elegant atmosphere. We really enjoyed the food and we would recommend it to anyone looking for an intimate meal with an elegant, savory menu."

"First time visiting tonight. The food quality and taste were beyond any expectations I had! The seared venison was delicious. The real winner of the restaurant is their signature artichoke tortellini. It was divine! I have never been floored by pasta before. It was an experience to taste. I would eat dessert first and end on the tortellini! The staff was also wonderful. So attentive and accommodating of our schedule with theater tickets. I can’t wait to go back again."
