I just read the review about it taking 25 mins for a calzone. Wow, I would have been overjoyed if it only took 25 mins. More like an hour!! Pizza was so so. Service was horrible and the place was a mess. $36 for crappy food. Do yourself a favor and don't go.
Get to Palmer Lake and try this place out, worth the drive! Best green chili I have had.
Everything I've ever had there is amazing!! One particular entree that blew me away is the salmon!! Every bite was heaven!! The prime rib will also make you a believer! :) I've moved out of state, but when I come back for visits, having another fantastic taste buds experience will HAVE to be at The Black Bear Restaurant!! On top of the superb cuisine, there's Victor Matthews who LOVES to hear about your dinning experiences face to face! If he possibly can, he will come out to your table to listen to your comments:) If you're a tourist, you'll take home exceptional memories of this restaurant!!!
Dave...wow, what a different experience you had.
I have eaten there a half of dozen times and love it. It is sophisticated food, the place is very clean, the food extremely fresh and handcrafted, the manager works hard (which can be mistaken as being pre-ocuppied, but hey, try working that hard and being charming in the same breath...I think he does a good job at that).
The food is excellent...and I am not paid to say that, nor am I related. I have several friends who feel very good about Q's as well.
I don't see how people are giving this place such rave reviews when we had a VERY BAD experience there. The staff and manager always bickering; asking if we had reservations when the place was not full, seating us at a table that was difficult to sit at (high top) and by the door. They were sitting people by the windows and outside in the HEAT AND SMOKE to make it appear busier than it was. The food was so-so and did I say that the attitude of the manager was HORRIBLE the entire time? I feel that the people that like this place are friends of the owner or paid to say so. DO NOT GO THERE! BTW they NO NOT ask for ID's for the drinks (no one was asked) and they add tips to your amount after you sign the card receipt!
Wonderful atmosphere, quiet and a good place for a meeting or to study. Serving some of the best coffee in Colorado Springs, the staff is almost too friendly :)
Efficient service; excellent pho. GREAT Bun.
It has been a real ptomaine tavern for a couple of years now.
What happen to this place. The floors were covered with dirt, straws and looked like it has not been cleaned in months. Let alone, the pickles they served us, looked like they were frozen and tasted horrible. No one could eat them. The hamburger was running with grease and dripping out of the bun. Something tasted sour on the hamburger too. Not sure if it was the pickle, or catsup. Couldn't eat that side of the bun. Furthermore, the service was horrible. Not friendly at all. It was like, she didn't want to go out of her way for anything. Being a native of Colorado and have visited this place since it first started on Colorado Ave. I find this place very disheartening anymore. I will never go to this place again. Let alone, bring in out of town guests to this place. Local meat or not, the dirtiness, bad service and most of all, the way the food was prepared was shameful. This place needs a make over with everything. We visited this place on Saturday the 25th of May, 2013. The quality is just not there anymore. Sad really. I had not been there in almost a year and it has gotten a lot worse since then. The place seems like an old run down hamburger shop. Sorry but it does. If anyone would ever really look around that place. You will see it too. Sorry, I will never suggest this place to any of my out of town family and friends again. Not worth the embarrassment.
Ever since ownership changed, this place has been awful. The food and drinks are over priced and not to mention my wife got sick from the dessert. If you're really looking for a good sports bar to go to before the Sox game, go to Holy Cow, they're food is hotter, beer is colder and staff is prettier!
Great food from the kitchen, but the out front organization is a total failure.
They told me one time they had no seating available when there was only one table occupied...when I pointed that out they said that one of the wait staff didn't show up and they could not service the remaining tables.
This place, especially without a beer license (who eats curry without beer) will be vacating this space like every other eatery that has been here.
Smily's, at the same time, continues to flourish.
I purchased a groupon for this restaurant and went in the middle of the week at about 7 pm with my child and husband. It took almost 18 minutes to seat us even though we were the only ones standing there, 27 minutes to get us a menu, we had to waive somone down to take our drink orders, wave someone down again to take our food orders after waiting so long.... I was timing all of this as it really got ridiculous. The food was cold when we got it, was okay but curry out of a can at home would have been better, and the bell pepper in the curry still had the store sticker on it, cooked in with the curry. We left at 9 pm when they closed, which the meal should have taken 45 minutes at most. I would have left, had I not bought the groupon already. I have never not given a tip before, this was the first time I didn't give a tip :(
My experience was exquisite and I hope to repeat it. I was there Nov. 20 and whomever was "in the kitchen" rocked! Scallops! omg...The ambience is rich and the bill proves it. <3 the place for a nice date
If sushi is your thing and you want to wear yo bling, this is the place to see and be seen for the best of oriental dining! The sushi bar is extravagant, delicious, hospitable and friendly. Desert for me, last visit, was soft shell crab in some crazy magic sweet sauce! YUM Be there or be totally sushi dish square.
Love to visit the Sahara every single time I find myself in Manitou. The family is warm and welcoming and service is sweet and timely. The SAGE TEA is the best beverage I have ever imbibed and I highly recommend it on ice! YUM, want some now. The ice cream is also yummy and anything on the menu is FIRST CLASS!
One of my Favorite places!! They will treat you right and the food is always yummy! I miss them being on the westside, but will still make the short drive to support them. Love the noodle bowls! JoJo always knows what we want when we walk in, great service!
Went to Nosh the other day...and it is really hard now to get a glass of water...what is that about?
The Saigon Grill is a wonderful small family Vietnamese restaurant on Circle, close to Platte. Every dish that we have tried (on multiple visits) has been excellent.
Appetizers and main course dishes are all freshly prepared with excellent service and very reasonable prices.
The Saigon Grill at 337 N. Circle Drive is a treasure among the many Asian restaurants in town!
Gringo...I guess it is personal...I am a better beer drinker than anything else I do...but I always feel dissed and abused and robbed at Trinity. Never felt so taken at any place i have bought a beer in Colorado Springs...so I do take it all as you perceive.
Also...every single brew pub in the Springs makes generally better beer...so why be abused and have your evening spoiled when you can drink better beer and your patronage be appreciated somewhere else.
