Re: “The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

I will never go back to The Warehouse. They put on a buffet for a work function I went to -- the food was decent, although their idea of desert for 75 people was one tray of cream puffs. However, six of us got our cars broken into while dining there, in their parking lot. When we went back in to get support from the staff in calling the police, the waitresses response was "Wow! I'm surprised that happened tonight. It usually happens around Christmas!" Anyplace that says break-ins "usually" happen at a certain time, then don't bother calling the police....makes me wonder. The best food in the world wouldn't be worth that attitude or expense.

Re: “Sunbird

Well, the Friday night Happy Hour is even better than the brunch..All you can eat Buffallo wings for free! Discounted drink prices and Live Jazz band every Friday night!
Really awesome..did I mention the friendly cocktail waitresses?

Re: “Sunbird

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. :)

Re: “Craftwood Inn

Amazing experience. Exotic meats like Wild Boar, etc. Pricey but worth it.

Re: “Joseph's Fine Dining

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.

Re: “The Blue Star

Lounge staff and atmosphere were terrific as were the mixed drinks we got from the bar. Too bad I can't say the same about the "fancy" Dining room staff. Both menus are wonderful and the wine selection is second to none. Not so sure I like that the menu in the Dining room changes so frequently. But their desserts are to die for.

Re: “Cafe 36 at the FAC

Sorry, but the last time I ate there, I was served a badly burned quiche, with no apologies, and no offer of an alternate meal.

So, it WILL be the last time I eat there!

Re: “Cafe 36 at the FAC

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.

Re: “Briarhurst Manor Estate

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!

Re: “Carlos' Bistro

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,'ll like it and be back.

Re: “Swiss Chalet

Re: “The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

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.

Re: “Carlos' Bistro

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.

Re: “Adam's Mountain Café

luv this restaurant!

Re: “Adam's Mountain Café

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.

Re: “Nosh

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.

Re: “Adam's Mountain Café

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!

Re: “Garden of the Gods Gourmet

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.
