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!
They were ok but I felt like they thought they were a little too cool to sell to someone like me... I can go anywhere so I don't need a teenager giving me attitude. For people over 45 years old, keep looking, you've got several choices, just drive by.
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).
Boudin was fair but a bit ricey. Gumbo tasted burnt but I only tried once. The bread pudding was phenomenal and One of the Best I have EVER tasted. Etouffee was tomato based. The shrimp were well seasoned and fresh. I would return for desert but not basics
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.
Oh boy my wife and I had a great lunch there. The chips and salsa where very fresh and taste equally good. We both agreed the meal is the best Mexican food in the springs. The plus side for us is the food had the right amount of herbs and spices certainly not bland like most Mexican places in town. There was a draw back for us though when I went to the restroom I thought I could smell cigarettes as I went past the kitchen entry way and as we were leaving the staff had the door open in the back which we saw in the open cooler massive amounts of pre-made dishes. This made us feel uncomfortable about our food safety. But the food was great

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.
