Outstanding. In early June had the best meal I've ever had in the Springs. The menu is small but is handled expertly. Our server was exceptional, offering advice on the food, having it prepared just as we requested (w/o so much pepper on the steak au poivre) and even offering us some extra wine as the evening wound down. From the view to the service to the high quality ingredients, this restaurant is arguably the best in the Springs. It's pricey but not ridiculous. . . our meal for 3 with appetizers, entrees, wine and desserts came to around $70/person with tip included.
When you can, go for dinner. Lunch is good, but you really need to savor the food and view which dinnertime allows. If you can pair it with a FAC art opening, which we did, then the night becomes memorable. Go see for yourself. It really is worth trying.
Its my favorite place in the Springs. It has history, charm, romance, great food, great service, an amazing setting, the best patio in the Springs, its elegant but casual at the same time and affordable especially since they stopped doing that ALA CARTE thing that pads the bill, complete meals for less than 20 bucks!
Great food, great service, and an owner that makes sure that everyone feels welcome.
We (the wife and I) travel a lot and eat out all of the time...we often find ourselves comparing every restaurant to Carlos' Bistro.
If you haven't tried it, DO...you'll like it and be back.
Definitely a great place to go for a gourmet experience. Relaly nice atmosphere and just upscale all the way. Definitely a treat.
This is definitely worth checking out when you are interested in an upscale dining experience. Interesting menu, very nicely done. The gallery is also available for rent as a party/event room and makes for a great party.
You can't go wrong at Walter's.
Carlos' Bistro is a very popular restaurant on the west side of town. Very nice, very upscale, and yes, rather expensive, but worth it. This is a good place to impress a date or out of town visitors, or just reward yourself. And yes, Carlos is always there to make sure you enjoy your meal and that everything is perfect.
luv this restaurant!
I have loved Adam's since it was in the tiny little spot Mona Lisa now inhabits. I spent many Saturday mornings in front of a turkey burrito and sherry potatos at the community table making small talk with other locals in my teenage years. As they have grown in size, with their two later incarnations, they have continued to provide excellent service, superb, fresh and healthy food, without relinquishing that big table and the homey community feeling.
They just added a wonderful appetizer of purple rice and bean looked like a sushi roll but was instead a stack..... loved it. . . service was top notch. Asked for a wine selection and it was perfect. Really enjoyed the meal. Recommend it highly.
To me, Adam's is a place to go to eat and celebrate friends. Whether it's breakfast or lunch, I love sitting there with an endless cup of coffee, truly unique food options and gossiping with a good girlfriend (or 4!) A fun place to stop after an early morning hike in Manitou or to take a long lunch and share dessert! A small town, eclectic Colorado feel and flavors that delight. Nothing on the menu has disappointed but it's often hard to stray from my first favorites to even get to try anything else!
I love dropping by Garden of the Gods Gourmet for the samples they always have out and about. Their sandwiches are delicious and I've enjoyed many of their take-and-bake items as well. The only thing I wish they'd do is add natural/organic/grass-fed beef/poultry/etc. to their dishes. Any added cost would definitely be worth it.
I can't get enough of Adam's Mountain Café. Sunday brunch means a tough decision between Orange Almond French Toast and Whole Grain Pancakes. At lunch I often pick the Rural Italian Lasagna. And for dinner? I try not to fill up on the Crostini with Figs and Pears app before selecting another veggie-heavy dish. Yum. Oh, and don't forget to order the Seattle Orange Spice House Tea--hot or cold, it completes the meal.
While steaks makes up most of their signature dishes, I prefer their seafood specials. Generally creative and full of innovative flavor. Love the fireplace on those cold winter nights.
