It was a chilly, rainy night and we poppen into the La Tartine expecting the same wonderful food and service that we had at the La Baguette. The restaurant was lonely with only another couple that looked like they had been waiting for some time to be served. I ordered the quiche, but didn't have a choice of what kind because they were out of the other ingredents. My husband ordered the beef bourguignon and we both ordered the French onion soup, which was billed as "the best in town." While we waited longer than we thought was needed because the restaurant was not busy, the other couple finally got their dishes after about 15 minutes. Ours came about 10 minutes later with service that was clumsey, soup spilled all over the plate. The quiche was the smallest portion I've ever seen and my husbands bourguignon was disgraceful with scimpy portions of beef. We paid much to much for the experience and will never go back or will recommend it to anyone.
My husband and I just had dinner at the Creekview Grill tonight. They food was very good, but the service was lousy! Unless you are there to belly up to the bar and flirt with the bartenders and waitresses, you will get overlooked. Sorry to say, but we will not be back for quite some time. Maybe someone reading this will realize there needs to be better management of the restaurant.
Horrible service if you are non white! Stopped after church while visiting friends in Colorado Springs. Had to open other section to seat our group of 5. Other groups arrived after us, but our group order was the last taken. When our waitress went by, she never stopped to see if beverages needed refill. Food was delivered to all tables around us. When waitress asked another table if they were "fine and in need of anything", I spoke up and said" No things are not fine, we need our food" The reply was "well when it's cooked, I'll get it". Needless to say, we left. No service-no pay-no tips. Don't go there if you are non-white!
The Ritz is only a disappointing shadow of its former self. It's just sad to be there now. The food has gone downhill, as has the service. Not even a decent bloody mary. Time to go elsewhere.
Ritz Downtown - Blah. My chicken sandwich was significantly overcooked. My wife ordered the chicken and shrimp pasta. They forget to put in the shrimp! The waitress offered to give us a to go box with shrimp in it to make up for it. WTF!. No offer to reduce the bill for skipping the shrimp. Move on to a better restaurant folks!
Look at how old these reviews are......There's a new concessionaire. The food and service has improved quite a bit. Give it a try!
Hello everyone my name is Ray and me and Joe just took over management roughly a month ago. I can assure you that this place will be turned around and bring back a friendly and bright culture to this community and this amazing restaurant. We are already seeing improvement by getting returning guests and compliments saying " thank you for taking over". We are starting to do a Fish fry on Fridays as well as a prime rib dinner on Saturday's. We are going to be known as a restaurant and bar. We are calling it Valley Hi Pub and Grill. so come see us and give us a chance to make a great first impression.
Anyone who is a customer or past customer could help me by sending owners or GM's name. I am moving back to COS and I want to turn that restaurant around. So that local neighbors can enjoy it. email@example.com
Everyone ….please note the dates that these reviews were posted!
This delightful little neighborhood cafe and coffee house has changed ownership in the last two years and deserves a fair shot at a new start! We have been there at least three times and have enjoyed each visit. The owner is a very pleasant woman and her staff is kind, efficient, helpful and very adept at making your time there pleasant and memorable.
Please treat yourself and give them a try! It is very enjoyable and relaxing.
It could be that Club Manager is keeping wages and morale low. Will not rate, just commenting on probable cause. rovinchef
Learn the meaning of brunch. Made reservations thinking I was getting brunch only to realize the management didnt know the definition of bunch. They offer late breakfast but NO brunch. I should have gone to Ihop for this quality. Misleading and adding the wording brunch to a menu is just a lie... shame on you.
One of my favorite breakfast places ever. Crepes are to die for and the eggs and crème cheese with scallions are amazing.
There's a bartender named Laken, she's pretty awesome and liberal w the drinks. But also a tease in a good way
The above reviews crack me up, some rang true BUT... It's NOW NEW OWNERS.
So give it another try and I promise you won't be disappointed.
If you are in, then you are in...otherwise you are out, out of luck to get served
Boring and careless
I go to Flatirons each Monday to play poker. I find the food here especially delicious and very well prepared. The Flatiron steak is tender and cooked to perfection. The potatoes are a rare delight and the mac and cheese is to die for! I appreciate Megan and the other fine servers that are considerate and remember the menu items you enjoy. A lovely evening for anyone looking for good food and fellowship.
More than just rude, some of the barristas are downright hostile. They had this one girl who looked like she fell on her father's tackle box. She was always snippy. I stopped going there a long time ago. I prefer to go to Canyon Cafe on 8th and Cheyenne Blvd.
BEST carrot cake and French Dip we've ever had. Tons of mix/match menu options.
Thank you for all your wonderful support throughout our 60 year history. I just ran across these comments while inputting our new summer entertainment schedule on our creekside patio area. I am sorry to hear that someone had a bad experience with waitstaff....puzzles me a bit, since our servers are mostly natives of the area and normally have quite happy dispositions. I suspect there may be some personal issue with former waitstaff that no longer work with us. Anyhow, we aim to please in every way, and I will be passing this info along to my floor manager to insure that everyone is treated with respect and kindness. Thanks again to all of you wonderful people who make us possible! The Owner
