SMD and scottwkeller1999 comments certainly provide opposite end of the spectrum reviews of Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza. Must say I agree with both. Have visited more than once, and some days the service and the food are great, other days just the food is great. Staffing is certainly an issue and the owner's attitude is hit or miss, depending on the day you visit. Chalking this up to new restaurant nerves, and hope they work out the kinks as this is great pizza!
haven't been in years but their pies were alwys amazing!!!
Good food, fried potatoes are awesome! Not going to blow you away, but you won't be disappointed if you realize what you are getting/ Deli section has a good variety
You have to be careful here. 95% of the time the food is unbeatable, and then there is the other 5%. My favorite dishes there are the fish and chips, the bangers and mash, and sheppard's pie.
I have been going there for around 5 years now, and almost always order one of my 3 favorites. It's ususally great, BUT... a couple times a year it's horrible (and that's an understatement!) The last time I was there I ordered the Shppard's pie. It came with a well done top and the gravy was so thin and overpowered with rosemary it was disusting. Now the waitstaff and manager were all over it trying to make it better. I'll definately give them that. The second try at the pie was even worse than the first. I fianlly had to change to the bangers and mash which was rushed (as by the time I got it my wife had already finished her meal) was not properly cooked. I walked... and have not returned.
The one thing you NEVER do in a restaurant is serve undercooked pork (or chicken for that matter).
So, unless they've corrected the problem, which is sporadic, your taking the quality of your evening, and your health, in your hands!
This is a review of the Monument location.
The pizza itself is very good - our favorite pizza and the new Monument location has a nice environment. Here's my problem specifically w/ the Monument location. After ordering your pizza at the counter, when it's busy (dinner time on the weekends for example) you have to wait around for a table to open up. Unfortunately, there's not a good way to keep track of who's been waiting the longest and should get the next table. This results in the potential for conflict when a table opens - who was there first? Who should get the table? I don't like that.
IMNSHO This is the best Mexican food in the Springs. We usually have to travel to Denver for good Mexican food but The Flow of Mexico is as good as Denver's best. The ingredients are fresh and I will not eat at a place that serves processed food. I'm not picky, I just won't eat Sysco processed crap. The Vegetables were fresh and the meat was a good quality.
Love the mix and match option that is their menu. Lot's of food for a great price. Thumbs up for the good ol' American mac 'n' cheese and their Asian noodle dishes (in all their varieties).
Fujiyama has an awesome rolls menu and the 1/2 price rolls and nigiri at lunch is a smokin' deal. Really unique selection of rolls, but a bit heavy on the fried and cream cheese options. I'd love to see more specialty rolls highlight the fish without the fried. However, that may be a preference they've seen from customers... just not mine. Some of the rolls didn't hold together great... seemed like they were either overstuffed or underwrapped and I ended up losing all the innards (ew... can you use that word in a food review?!) all over the platter.
Overall good experience, good flavors, good service. Love the miso and the seaweed salad.
Fun place to take the kids, old fasioned setting, the food was only so so but still a bit pricy. Go for the salad bar and a smaller pizza.
I thought Poblano's was OK when it first opened in Falcon, nothing exceptional but not terrible either but at least we had a Mexican restaurant. Now that La Mission is open, I won't go to Poblano's again. La Mission blows it away.
Adequate good food, but not sure why they keep winning awards. Didn't seem all that special to me. I thought the food was better a block away at La Unica....
Average place. Noisy. Young, drinking crowd.
I have only tried there egg plant and it was very good. The dining atmosphere was average.
The pizza toppings are great, but the dough is awful (to doughy).
Tasty and fresh. Good quality, eclectic choices. Price and attitude a little high for what you get.
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.
i won't say my head went spinning off my neck, but overall it was pretty decent. It was actually a treat because it was the first new place i've been to in a while. So in the spirit of being generous, i'll say the food is ok and i dig the name. It's catchy. Maybe if this place can linger a bit longer it'll catch on to the pace and quality preference of Colorado Springs. (and RockMtnGuy, i dig what you've saying, but I urge you to be cautious. Lately i started avoiding Fudruckers when they stated hiring work release candidates in mass. ick*)
I would have given them 5 stars a few weeks ago but then the menu change. I have visited Trinity since the opening and thought the concept and menu worked, once a few kinks were worked out. But now it seems the concept was tweaked and so has my opinion of Trinity. Gone are the stuffers and several vegetarian de-lites (so the wife is not too excited about going there anymore). The new menu is ok and the stuffers have been replaced by a collection of the new food cliche of 'sliders'. These small 'sandwiches' lack the excitement of their former selves. My buffalo slider with carmelized onions sounded great but the 3 little charred 'meat patties' were tasteless and dry, needless to say my friend was not inspired by the BLT sliders. He had the original sandwich from the menu 2 weeks prior and claimed it was the "the best blt ever!". At least they still have the beer selection.. Change is not always good, especially these changes..
This is my favorite sit-down Mexican restaurant in town. The patio option is GREAT when the weather agrees, the service is always on, the margaritas are strong, the salsa is fresh and spicy and the food is straight up good. The portions are big enough that you have built in lunch leftovers for the next day. Try the fish tacos... try their soups... try their "chile" sampler plate. Yummy.
The location is superb. . . right there on the course. When the weather is warm the outdoor covered patio is perfect for sitting back, sipping a cold one and enjoying the day. Menu is better than to be expected for a public course. But don't expect anything too far out. Standard fare of burgers and such.
