Re: “The Rabbit Hole

It was an interesting experience for sure... The place is charming, but the four of us that went thought the food wasn't that amazing. Probably wouldn't come back.. We got their burger, the butternut squash ravioli, the trout, and the meatloaf... Interesting

Re: “The Famous

I personally ate at Zane's dozens of times. The food was great! I never got sick. I have many friends who ate there. Same story. Great food. Since the owners were the same folks who operate Mason Jar, the quality of the food has been successfully experienced by thousands of Colorado Springs people. The reason Zane's failed is because the owners did not have the money for an expensive downtown location. It sounds to me like snephtar has a high stress personality, and probably made himself sick. The fact that no other food quality complaints were filed should cause snephtar to rethink his position.

Re: “The Famous

ZANE'S STEAKHOUSE SUCKED- ZANE'S GAVE ME FOOD POISONING (I have the credit card receipt and the Emergency Room documents) AND IS NOW CLOSED. I GUESS THAT SAYS IT ALL. THE FAMOUS HAS EXCELLENT FOOD, ATMOSPHERE AND WAIT STAFF. I think "SmartestMonkey" needs to rethink his/her name because you are truly an effing moron. The meal was "expensive" at Zane's because of the ER co-pay, Einstein.

Re: “The Rabbit Hole

What an incredible setting, it's a subterranean escape from the everyday life of Colorado Springs. I walked around to see the entire layout of the Restaurant and it seemed like I was exploring hidden caves, even a library with a variety of books. There is really cool art displayed and I actually know one of the local Artists. The staff is welcoming and personable, they made me feel like a friend not just a guest. Micro brews on tap (my favorites) and just $2.50 at Happy Hour. The food is absolutely mouth watering, I've had the Juicy Lucy burger, Ribs, Carrot soup, and the German Chocolate Cake. It's nice to have a new place that is unique and not typical of the others.

Re: “Motif

Can be charming, depending on who's there and who is playing in the band. Incredible players like Wayne Wilkenson on guitar are there on occasion, but then some wannabees always seem to show up. The most forgetable-the highly over-rated Bruce Pennington on piano.....ugh..... Seriously, if I hear another cliche' "Liberace"-like scale run from the keys i'll jump out a window. As long as there is a variety rotation in play, this place is worth checking out... but beware the afor mentioned lounge lizard act.

Re: “Motif

I just went to Motif for the first time this weekend and LOVED it!! There was a male singer who was amazing. Loved that I felt like I was in a big city, but only had to drive 20 minutes to get there. My friends and I shared a bunch of stuff off the menu. The sliders and fries were to die for and the chef's special was great as well. A little hard to find, but it was well worth the search, it was a real treat. The service was great, and the drinks as well. The mango martini was out of this world. Can't wait to go back!

Re: “Motif

Not worth the money! I came here for a girls'-night-out and we were seated by the piano; all we could focus on was the "colorful" language we heard coming from the kitchen. The food and drinks were mediocre at best, and the servers were obviously overwhelmed. Also, after being open for almost a year, you would expect this place to have some sort of sign, but this is not the case. To top it off, as I was leaving, I passed by the side-door and had who I believe was the yeller with colorful language from the kitchen tell me to "have a good evening" as he sat in a sweaty, dirty t-shirt and shorts and smoked a cigarette. I would expect this sort of behavior and attire from a fast food restaurant, not an upscale jazz club. I absolutely advise against going here!

Re: “The Blue Star

Hiring the new chef and snagging Nate as a bartender were excellent decisions. The late night menu needs work and the staff are okay, but not brilliant. More training and a little more panache would go a long way. It's Blue Star, not Jose Muldoons and I expect the staff to live up to a higher standard. All that said, it's good value, the best martini in town, and a wine list that compels a second look.

Re: “The Cliff House at Pikes Peak

Our first experience here was for Valentines Day a couple of years ago and we were seated in the ballroom, which was converted to a dining room for the occasion. It was okay, but less than perfect. We just went back again a couple of weeks ago and were royally treated in the 'proper' dining room. The wine list is very extensive and the food and service were superb. We're putting this place on our top 10 list of local restaurants.

Re: “Marigold Café and Bakery

good food/menu if you're a carnivore. If you're not, not so much.

Re: “Margarita at PineCreek

Best outdoor patio with live music in the summer. Great street tacos. Overall, an very good experience.

Re: “The Cliff House at Pikes Peak

Had breakfast in the dining room recently. This is allegedly a 4 diamond place, but the floor was dirty (food crumbs), the cream was old and curdled in the coffee, the service was slow and inattentive, but the food was good. It will be interesting to see if they hold on to all of their diamonds.

Re: “Adam's Mountain Café

Great, unique food with many vegetarian/vegan options. Live music is pretty good. The patio in the summer is the best.

Re: “Ritz Grill

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.
