Based on some of the reviews I had a bit higher hopes for the full menu but if you chose wisely, there are some real hits on the menu. The skirt steak seemed to be the winner. The local trout, sadly, was not. Seemed flavorless...More

We had a great time at Leonora. We basically did tapas for the table. They were all great!!!! Really enjoyed the wine list as well. Our waitress Rita was awesome. We are coming back tonight for a second shot at the restaurant. A+!

We ate there last weekend and were all pretty disappointed. Our waiter was super nice, but he led astray with the 18oz Elk Tomahawk to split. It was probably a 6-8oz cut of actual meat with a long rib bone sticking out of it. And...More

Description
Hip, energetic and upscale, yet delightfully unpretentious. The cuisine is inspired by the high alpine cultures of the Alps, Pyrenees and our own Colorado Mountains. Executive Chef Tyson Peterson utilizes the best of all fresh, local and organic ingredients to create amazing Tapas, Crudo and Alpine Bistro fare. Leonora respects the pure ingredients with ingredient-driven, simply prepared dishes thoughtfully paired with an extensive wine program central to the dining experience. Winter Hours open 7 days a week from 5:30 pm - reservations recommended!
