The food is very good, my favorite is the aloo gobi and my son loves the butter chicken, yum!
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.
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.
I've been coming here off and on since the 90's and the food is always awesome here. The flavor's, the perfect buns, and the fresh ingredients keep me coming back. Sure, you may have to wait about 10 to 20 minutes on some days, but it is indeed worth it. You can sit outside while you eat and enjoy an awesome view of the mountains!
Amazing food, wine & service - plus the chef is one of my dance students from LONG ago! Way to go, Shane!!!
A "Diamond" in this truly rough Colorado Springs culinary scene. Chef Davis has manage to bring to this city something long needed and looked for. Southern/Cajun cuisine and the atmosphere/feel of dining in the French Quarter. My first experience at Springs Orleans, I almost forgot what city I was in for a bit, which is not a bad thing every once in a while. A wonderful place for a 3-4 course meal, or suits just as well for Beignets and Cafe Au Lait. If you happen to catch the musical talents of Thomas Dawson (Pianist for the Commodores usually there Thurs-Sat nights) the experience is taken to a whole other level. A wonderful dining experience.
Would recommend the Sahara to anyone who enjoys Middle Eastern food. The owner works both in the kitchen and on the floor. Very pleasant atmosphere and clean.
I stopped in to try out this new korean restaurant as im always looking for good korean. I came in skeptical as I've been disappointing with the restaurants around town, but I was very pleasantly surprised!! The meat was marinated perfectly, side dishes were amazing, and the kim chee was to die for! I have found a new place to eat every friday night!
Last time I was there, a server dropped napkins on the floor, picked them up from the floor and wrapped them around silverware intended for customers. I mentioned this was a health code violation; his response was, "Oh?" like it had never occurred to him; he then unwrapped them, discarded the napkins that had been on the floor BUT NOT THE SILVERWARE THAT HAD NOW TOUCHED THEM, and proceeded to wrap new napkins around them. I'll never eat there again.
I guess they must have gotten rid of whomever served you, Unhappy, because my experience was great! In response to questions about why certain items are sometimes missing from the menu: This restaurant orders the seafood portion of their menu directly from New Orleans, not local fish farms etc. Therefore they only get what's in season, nothing frozen so say Alligator isn't in season or the season is unsuccessful for something like crawfish, they won't have it readily available... a drawback, maybe, but this is also insuring that you get the freshest seafood available...
Ha Ha that sucks. I order custom slices every week and they are freakin awesome!
By far, our favorite restaurant, Mexican or otherwise. The Woodland Park restaurant certainly qualifies in the "Hole in the Wall" category, but there is nothing second rate about the food or the service. We went there on the strong recommendation of our friends and we pass that same recommendation on to others.
comfortable atmosphere not all bar tables, open to 11, kobe hamburger cooked right, beer battered fish and chips are great. They have bbq but havent tried it .
It would be awesome if they could hire an actual busperson who would actually clean the tables with disinfectant - I try not to think about when I eat there. Yuk.
excellent food - cool atmosphere...and it's open on Sundays!!
G-MAN 07-28-2011 Last night my wife & I sat down @ 6:19 pm, ordered a bottle of Fat Tire & 2 ice teas. They brought to the table rolls & 2-3oz. bowls of beans. The waitress said the rolls & beans are complimentary no extra cost to you, kind of like chips & salsa at some the Mexican restaurants, so far so good for our first time being there. My wife ordered the open face roast beef sandwich with gravy & I ordered 24 wings & a bake potato, I would consider this order being rather simple to prepare in my house hold or anywhere else. An hour later, plus four apologies later still no meal! There were only 6 tables occupied to include ours when we sat down, with 6 other table empty & no one at the bar which sets about 10 people. I would not consider this being overly busy. At 7:30 pm my 24 wings appeared, 5 minutes later the bake potato & my wife’s sandwich had not been delivered as of yet. We got up to leave & I went to kitchen window where the waitress was waiting for the next order. I told the waitress that we were leaving & not paying for anything. The service was not good & the wait was way too long for what we ordered & you’re not even busy. The waitress came out to the car & said" we had to pay for the drinks". I said “I will pay for the beer & the ice teas should be complimentary for how long we waited!" I started towards the door to go inside & to pay for the beer. The waitress pops her head out the door before I could enter to say "my manager wants to talk to you outside." So I waited, an oriental woman appeared outside to tell me "I had to pay for all the drinks." I said "I will not pay for the ice teas as long as we had to wait!" She said "Yu are bad man" commenced to writing down my vehicle tag #. I told the lady "don't worry about writing my tag # down, my wife & I work in Law Enforcement, so I will call for a Sheriff’s Deputy to come file a non-emergency report about this event. The manager / oriental lady huffed & stormed back into the restaurant. Deputy Post arrived 5 minutes later to resolve the issue. Officer Post reminded me that there is a law called theft by receiving. I told him, "that I would pay for the drinks, it shouldn’t be more than $10.00", he kind of agreed. He returned with a ticket asking for $19.60, which indicated that the rolls & beans cost $5.00, so much for being complimentry. I paid the manager with my debit card so there would be a recorder of the transaction, as I passed my debit card to her, I said "that this is not a dead issue, your parking lot & the street outside are a public forum for which I will be protesting, I will be writing to the editor of Pueblo Chieftan/Pueblo West View about this event, I will be filing a compliant with BBB & the Pueblo County business licensing department. She said, Yu very Bad Man do whatever! So much for a Quick meal & a Quite evening after a long hard day at work @ 8:00 pm, now!!!This event lasted a 1 hour & 40 minutes by the time we got home, home is less than 5 minutes away, by which we could have eaten at any other restaurant in Pueblo twice & been treated appropriately by comping us in some way or another !!! Time well spent, Not!!!!!! Money well spent, Not!!! What is your opinion???
G-MAN 08-08-2011, Later in the day after posting the review below, I realized that we did not receive a copy of ticket & only had the debit receipt. I decided to stop by Black Barts Steakhouse @ 2:30 pm after work & I was in my dress down uniform. When I entered the restaurant, I stayed at the end of the bar closest to the entrance, while a young oriental girl got me a copy of last night's ticket showing what I was exactly charged for totaling $19.60. While waiting, I noticed that there was a menu sitting on the bar & it was open to the appetizers & sides page. At the top of the page it clearly said that the rolls & beans are free for the taken. Meanwhile the young girl appeared with ticket showing that I was charged for 2- full side orders of beans, $5.00 each totaling $10.00 for the beans, 1-Fat Tire beer, $3.50 & 2-Ice Teas, $2.75 each totaling $5.50 & $.60 tax for a grand total of $19.60. By the way, we never ordered any beans, nor did we receive a regular full order of beans. So much for paying for what we, consumed. It sounds like to me they gave themselves a hefty tip, instead. Friday Aug 5th, at 5:30 pm, 2-Pueblo Sheriffs Deputies rang my door bell. They identified themselves & I did the same. They said that on Thursday July 28th, somebody from Black Barts Steakhouse called them about me stopping by. They reported to the officers that, I was very intimidating in my uniform & asked them to inform me that I was not welcome back. I told the officers that, I only returned to get an itemized ticket of the actual charges, since only receiving a debit receipt the evening before. I asked the Officers, why are you only telling me this a week later. They indicated that, I was not there when they arrived & were too busy the rest of the week, until now. I told the Officers that the reason I was there even 10 minutes, was because the young girl had to call someone on the phone, in order to get me a copy of the charges. I wasn't courteous or rude while I was there & left promptly. After a close review of the actual charges, Black Bart’s charged me for 2-full orders of beans $5.00 a bowl as listed a the bottom of the menu, under sided orders. My wife & I only consumed the complimentary rolls & 3oz. dish of beans. I told the Officers, that I had written a letter to the Editor of the Pueblo Chieftain/Pueblo West View early in the day. I guess, I will be writing them again with a follow-up story of today's events. These people simply need to close their business or learn how a business treats it's customers.
Consistently good Vietnamese noodle bowls and rice dishes. Service is always responsive and the staff is most pleasant. This small friendly place puts to shame most of its larger competitors. Lunch here is a joy without the downtown parking hassles.
Great fast food Thai.... we visit regularly for a quick lunch.
Consistently high quality fish and happy, warm employees. This small sushi place gets an A+ every time we visit.... Back again tonite with my teen daughter!
