Re: “Potato Potato (food truck)

From the fries on up to the entree toppings it's stellar grub. Rare that anyone would be disappointed. And the guy slingin' the spuds has better taste in music than you do.

Re: “The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

Top rate food, service and ambience. We love the atmosphere as is. Chip Johnson and his staff (Amanda, Curtis, Leslie, Seth, Joey, Elaine, etc) have always gone out of their way to make each visit special.
We unfortunately lost my father-in-law last summer and we approached Chip and his staff about conducting a "Celebration of Life" event to honor him. WOW.....did they all come through. Nothing was over-looked, to include having options for more food, honor guard etc. given we didn't know how many people would turn up. While we estimated 100, there must have been over 130+. Extra food, tables, chairs didn't seems to phase his professional staff. We still receive many positive comments about the tribute, venue, and food The Warehouse provided to recognize a great man's life. We'll be forever grateful to them.

Re: “The Famous

The best place for a steak in southern Colorado. Don't have a friend to go with? Have a drink at the bar, have a delicious steak, and as long as you're reasonably friendly and interesting you'll surely make a friend there. Favorites include the rib eye medium rare, the filet charred rare, and the old fashioned. The bar and restaurant staff are friendly and are real pros. I usually go to the Famous on Thursday nights. It is less busy than Friday and Saturday, plus the pianist, Ken Janzen is there all three of those nights. He is really a terrific performer. You can't go wrong for lunch or dinner.

Re: “The Wobbly Olive

This place has an awesome drink menu and wonderful tapas. It's nice to have a local family owned business in a sea of boring corporate restaurants.

Re: “Ritz Grill

Went for lunch today to try the new menu. It had a lot of interesting food that all sounded sooo good. I had The Bomb sandwich. That is a perfect name it was truly the bomb, it had egg salad and pastrami. My husband had the Peking chicken and asparagus fries which were amazing. My son had fish and chips and he liked those. OH yeah started with the Man Candy, you can't go wrong with spicy/sweet bacon.

Re: “The Blue Star

How rare...I have been eating at the Blue Star since it opened and have always had a first rate experience on every level.

The Blue Star and Marigold's are the two best places to eat in the City...just considerably better than any similarly priced places.

Importantly, the volume is high enough that the foot is always fresh...I am actually pretty stunned by the bad review. Maybe the hubby is allergic to sea bass.

Re: “The Famous

ZANE'S STEAKHOUSE SUCKED- ZANE'S GAVE ME FOOD POISONING (I have the credit card receipt and the Emergency Room documents) AND IS NOW CLOSED. I GUESS THAT SAYS IT ALL. THE FAMOUS HAS EXCELLENT FOOD, ATMOSPHERE AND WAIT STAFF. I think "SmartestMonkey" needs to rethink his/her name because you are truly an effing moron. The meal was "expensive" at Zane's because of the ER co-pay, Einstein.

Re: “The Rabbit Hole

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.

Re: “Motif

I just went to Motif for the first time this weekend and LOVED it!! There was a male singer who was amazing. Loved that I felt like I was in a big city, but only had to drive 20 minutes to get there. My friends and I shared a bunch of stuff off the menu. The sliders and fries were to die for and the chef's special was great as well. A little hard to find, but it was well worth the search, it was a real treat. The service was great, and the drinks as well. The mango martini was out of this world. Can't wait to go back!

Re: “The Cliff House at Pikes Peak

Our first experience here was for Valentines Day a couple of years ago and we were seated in the ballroom, which was converted to a dining room for the occasion. It was okay, but less than perfect. We just went back again a couple of weeks ago and were royally treated in the 'proper' dining room. The wine list is very extensive and the food and service were superb. We're putting this place on our top 10 list of local restaurants.

Re: “The Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

The poster of this review has absolutely no proof whatsoever that his illness is related to his dining at my restaurant. We have served dozens of the same menu items as he had over the last few days, without any other concerns or complaints from any other guests. And during his phone call to me just minutes before this posting, he was saying he was too ill to get out of bed, yet now he can pull himself together enough to quickly fire off revenge posts? He just assumes that I should write him a check without any kind of medical procedures to link his illness to dining at my establishment! I am more than happy to address his concerns if they are valid, but to claim a supposed food illness without this being proven to be a food illness, or a food illness related to my facility is ignorant, irresponsible, intentionally harmful and reckless behavior.

Re: “Garden of the Gods Gourmet

I'm a big fan of Garden of the Gods Gourmet. Love their take-home soups, breads, and Curry Chicken Salad. I recently tried their "Dinner with the Chef" and had a wonderful evening enjoying food prepared in the kitchen by Chef Larissa. The food was wonderful and the price was very reasonable. You have to make reservations in advance, but I would highly recommend it to others.
