We just had our wedding reception at Ritz Grill and I can't even begin to find words for the service, food, and the entire amazing experience. From the time we met Amberdawn and began scheduling our reception, to her incredible team that took care of our party on the night of our reception - everything was PERFECT! Riley and Christy (our bartender and server) were loved by everyone in our party! They took great care of everyone (and Christy makes GREAT drinks!), and above all else, all the kids that were in attendance were treated like royalty as they sat up at the bar, ordered their "drinks," and chatted with the bartenders. The food was delicious and loved by everyone, and Riley knew who had food allergies, and what they were before we even had a chance to confirm everything with him. If you are looking for a cool atmosphere, amazing food and service, and to top it off - AFFORDABLE - Ritz Grill is as great as it gets!
I was very impressed with this restaurant. I thought there food and service was first-rate. Also their bartender (I don't myself drink, so I don't know first-hand) seemed very skilled and earned the praises of the person I was with who *did* order a cocktail.
Colorado Springs, CO
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.
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.
This place is amazing!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
excellent food - cool atmosphere...and it's open on Sundays!!
My wife and I have been since day one, We have been treated better than royalty.The staff are a gift from God!!!! The drinks and food are a passport to excellence!!!!! If you have not been here you must come and enjoy the SERVICE and FOOD !!!!
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!
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.
Excellent food, wine and service.
I love Adam's Mountain Cafe! The Almond French Toast is AMAZING! Great service, great prices and freshly made healthier food = win.
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.
Loved this place. The drinks were great and the music fantastic. Can't wait to go back.
Great meal, great ambiance and wonderful live music.
This brand new venue has huge potential! We LOVED the food - it is exceptional....the bernaise sauce on the Steak Tapas was among the best I've had. The salmon is a generous portion perfectly cooked in a ponzo sauce over spinach. We also tried the special which was a perfectly cooked Halibut. It is sooo rare to find a restaurant that understands how to prepare fresh fish in Colorado. While this is clearly not "fast food", but rather "made to order real food", we find the service warm and friendly and the atmosphere and music make for a pleasant wait. The perfect dry martini didn't hurt either. The Creme de Brulee was also the best I've had.....rich and creamy, yet light with a hint of cardemom and ginger! They also cater to the "Gluten Free" diners.... We hope they are so busy that they will expand service to weekdays or lunch as well.
