Re: “The Omelette Parlor

I wholeheartedly agree with the last poster. I think the food and oj is top notch. The manager could make an better attempt at quieting down the kitchen and wait staff when seating folks around that semi-open kitchen. The biggest problem I have is that this place needs a remodel or deep cleaning. They get a ton of people each day, so money shouldn't be an issue. The place is dusty, paint peeling, outdated/uncomfortable seating. This persona makes some people think what the kitchen must look like, if the seating area is this much in despair! Shut it down for a couple days and get the place in order!!!

Re: “R and R Bar and Grill

A new bar and a decent one at that. They have a friendly staff, I've been personally greeted by the owners every time I've walked in, and a pleasant atmosphere. Thursday nights they offer karaoke and ladies night, Friday nights are live local bands, and Saturday nights are live comedy, with no cover charge any night. They have one pool table that's a dollar a game or 3 games for two dollars. Either way, it's more expensive per game than most other bars in town, so if you're just looking for some place to play pool look elsewhere. They have daily lunch specials and happy hour runs from 4-6 pm. It's not a Coors friendly bar, they don't have it on tap and their Bud/Coors bottle prices are the same as their Bud/Bud Light pint drafts. As it's a new bar, not much clientele yet, but that could change as it becomes more known.
Overall a decent bar, but still not as good as other bars in town that offer more selection, cheaper prices, and the same friendly atmosphere.

I haven't eaten here in about 2 years and the food and service have declined. It must be a sign of the times. It will be a very long time before I go back. There are other great steak places in town with The Famous being the best.

Been there once and it was ok. Pretty average as far as quality, staff was great no complaints on that. But in my opinion the highest quality for the best price has always been We Grow Colorado on Bijou if u liked these guys youll love We Grow.

Re: “Fujiyama

Fujiyama has the best sushi but the service is poor. This might be the problem with the low tipping. Get hard working staff in there and this could be a 5 star place! The sushi chefs seemed to be better though a year ago. Staff changes frequently at this place. Thats not a good sign.

Re: “Tri-Lakes YMCA

With so many members, it is way past time to put in a decent swimming pool for real swimmers, those of us who want to swim laps in regulation size and temperatures! We joined with the understanding that the pool was "coming soon"! It has been 3 years!!!

Re: “Mimi's Cafe

We often go to Mimi's for breakfast on Sundays. The breakfast and lunch menus have a wide variety of choices. The food is always good and served well. My partner is gluten intolerant, and Mimi's is helpful in telling her what is available to her. Sit in the room off the entrance if possible, as the room in the back is very noisy. The last time we were there, the server did not keep my coffee filled, thus only 3 stars.

Re: “José Muldoon's - Tejon St.

Moneymoo that's to bad. I've been a patron for 20+ also and I must say I've waited for the day for Jose to serve me a bad meal (but they've been consistent over those 20). Not sure why people are blasting the food, you know it's not authentic before you come (but it is consistently good). Good, not necessarily authentic, southwestern food (not that tex-mex garbage).

Re: “Oscar's Tejon Street

I thought the shrimp was outstanding. The overall atmosphere was not.

Re: “Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant

Really? Are you the owner? I think it smells weird and has very little ambiance.

Re: “Marigold Café and Bakery

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

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: “Mona Lisa's Wine Bar

It smelled weird and the live music was very late getting started.

Re: “15C

I guess it would be somewhat insensitive to say that 15C is really smoky, but it is, even when it's not on fire and just open for business. But it's still really cool - great atmosphere.

Re: “Fargo's Pizza Co.

The salad bar is good, the pizza is ok. Mostly about atmosphere, great to take kids and old people.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - 8th

Let's be honest....we can still choose where to spend our money for food and this is never my first choice. Delivery is COMPLETELY out of the question as I have NEVER gotten anything good from them in that department but if you go into the restaurant, the food is good. Not great, but good. I have found the best service at the Monument location and everything I have eaten there was good. First choice is always Papa Murphys but occasionally we will stop in and eat at Borriello Brothers.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

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!
