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.
I have not been there in some time but when I was I really appreciated all the Belgian ales on tap. That is very hard to find. If you appreciate Belgian ales you can do worse.
Tejon- I usually like your reviews but it seems like it's personal with you. You have too many entries on here and it's watering down your comments. Just my thoughts.
Jason is kind of a hippy dude, I met him when he was the brewmaster at Bristol's. He certainly has talent.
Just mentioned this to a friend who immediately regaled me with tales of rude treatment and whacko bad beer...the verdict is in.
Just to make sure my review above registers...I am posting again.
Lots of people who were excited about this place when it opened no longer even consider going...I never hear someone say, Hey I was at Trinity last night. It is an closed crowd of which, unless you are a head case, you would problem not want o be a part.
It is as dirty and greasy a place as I have ever seen...and the food has been sitting out for hours before it is served, tough, cold, congealed...nasty
I won't go back until the place is cleaned. It is filthy with a layer of dust that's been accumulating for years. I wish the Health Dept would check it out.
Good pho, slow service.
Relax...it is not meant to a five star eatery...it is a bring your own beer pizza place, with the best pizza in El Paso County.
I think it is fun and funky...but if you drop the attitude, so do the people there, who I have always found friendly, talkative, and helpful.
I must say it was quite unfriendly, over price, and tiny salads. I ordered 2 slices of cheese pizza and 2 house salads(the size of a big mac box) with very little on it... for 20 bucks! Need I say more.
You can't go wrong eating here. Was sad to see them move from the Westside..
What a wonderful find on the West Side! Dennis and JoAnn are amazingly gracious hosts and the food is definitely made with love. I went to a wine dinner there where DAT's teamed up with Queen Liquor and it was such a fun experience! Very relaxed and friendly. The fact that JoAnn took a moment to ask for prayers for a toddler she knew that was dying of cancer and thank all her staff was so heart warming. The place is VERY kid friendly and they have great daily specials. Beautiful, Beautiful food. Good drinks too. Try the Italian Valium, it'll make any bad day fade away. This is a great example of a small business that is very LOCAL and very into COMMUNITY. Try them out. You won't be disappointed.
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.
