This brand new venue has huge potential! We LOVED the food - it is exceptional....the bernaise sauce on the Steak Tapas was among the best I've had. The salmon is a generous portion perfectly cooked in a ponzo sauce over spinach. We also tried the special which was a perfectly cooked Halibut. It is sooo rare to find a restaurant that understands how to prepare fresh fish in Colorado. While this is clearly not "fast food", but rather "made to order real food", we find the service warm and friendly and the atmosphere and music make for a pleasant wait. The perfect dry martini didn't hurt either. The Creme de Brulee was also the best I've had.....rich and creamy, yet light with a hint of cardemom and ginger! They also cater to the "Gluten Free" diners.... We hope they are so busy that they will expand service to weekdays or lunch as well.
Nosh's lunch menu was updated since the last time I had visited and it took me twice as long to order as I wanted to try EVERYTHING. I settled on a cup of squash and apple soup (although their new option for a soup trio was tempting) and their Brussel Sprouts with polenta, candied lemon zest, manchego and a Korean sauce/condiment called Kochujang. I was not disappointed. The soup, especially, was divine... the brussel sprout dish a nice mix of sweet and savory and good textures. Unfortunately we were too full to try dessert so no report there.
On my 'to try next' list: the roasted cauliflower plate with garlic, miso and caramelized onion and the chicken pistou sandwich. GREAT service - especially if you get Aspen.
Lovley wine list, excellent service, devine food in a unique atmosphere.
They have a GREAT Sunday Brunch with room after room of buffet-style everything you could possibly want. There is also a custom omelet station and a place where they make fresh waffles and bananas foster to order. Oh, did I mention the all-you-can-drink Mimosas??? The patio is awesome with beautiful views. This is really the place to go for Sunday Brunch. :)
Amazing experience. Exotic meats like Wild Boar, etc. Pricey but worth it.
What a great dining experience, best I have had in years.
The staff was friendly and entertaining, not to mention the food was great, the table side preparation was a treat that you don't see very often. The spinach salad that is prepared at your table is to die for.
We were staying at The Broadmoor and was very disappointed in the level of service at the restaurants, that was not the case with Joseph's.
We liked Joseph's so much that we returned a second time and everything was just as good as the first visit.
I highly recommend this place. Don't be fooled by the outside appearance, this place is great.
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.
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.
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 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.
