Re: “Billy's Old World Pizza

I had a bad experience the first time I came, the menu online had the wrong prices. I went it, found out it was $10 more than advertised, was upset, got the pizza anyway and left. Loved the pizza (I had the Chicago style, I can't speak to the other offerings) so I got a Groupon, the Groupon says it is a flat fee which gets you a medium two topping pizza, an appetizer and two drinks, dine-in or carry out. I called and ordered this for carry out, go to pickup my order and there was a balance, the owner wanted to charge me gratuity for my carry out order, was mad I got it for carry out, said that was an error and wanted to charge me over the amount it said it was valued at. I was appalled, showed him the Groupon, and he said it was their error and I had to pay the difference. I will never come back. If you advertise a price, you honor it.

Re: “Mother Muff's Kitchen & Spirits

Couldn't disagree more with the review. The critic must be some elitist arse, who'd be better off reviewing obscure restaurants with square plates or butcher's paper for a plate. Anyway, the three or four times I've eaten at Mother Muffs, the food has been great. Just what you'd expect after reading the menu. I've had BLT, fried raviolis, cheese sticks, and a burger. All were tasty. Service has been great. Prices are decent! Nice atmosphere in the front room. Olde school, pub feel!

Re: “European Café

This is a hidden secret of Colorado Springs. The restaurant is located at 1015 W. Colorado now and the phone number is 632-6309. The food is some of the best in our city. They strive for quality and freshness. Everything is homemade. My favorite restaurant.

Re: “Larkburger

Was great the first couple visits, then the staff gave up. Pray there's not more than 3 people ahead of you or the wait will be your lunch break. Burgers are pretty good, staff is friendly, but all in all the prices are ridiculous. Expect $15-17 per person when taking a family here.

Re: “Paravicini's Italian Bistro

Service and food are excellent. I was born in NYC and come from an Italian family.

Re: “Paravicini's Italian Bistro

Mediocre food, inattentive service. What passes for good food in this city continues to astonish me.

Re: “The Caddie Shack Restaurant at Valley Hi Golf Course

Look at how old these reviews are......There's a new concessionaire. The food and service has improved quite a bit. Give it a try!

Re: “The Caddie Shack Restaurant at Valley Hi Golf Course

Hello everyone my name is Ray and me and Joe just took over management roughly a month ago. I can assure you that this place will be turned around and bring back a friendly and bright culture to this community and this amazing restaurant. We are already seeing improvement by getting returning guests and compliments saying " thank you for taking over". We are starting to do a Fish fry on Fridays as well as a prime rib dinner on Saturday's. We are going to be known as a restaurant and bar. We are calling it Valley Hi Pub and Grill. so come see us and give us a chance to make a great first impression.

Re: “Briarhurst Manor Estate

My husband and I recently got married at The Briarhurst Manor and all I can say is WOW!!! We are speechless. We found this venue over the internet. The reviews were pretty good and so much was included so we booked it without seeing it. We live in Florida so when we had a chance we came out to do cake tasting and so on and omg this place is beautiful. The food is to die for. We eneded up having our rehearsal dinner here also in the Palmer Room!!! The price is so reasonable... Not even fair actually compaired to the service and food. There were even deer hanging around during the wedding. Our planner Allison.... Im really not sure there are words to describe how amazing she was. I still tear up thinking about her and everytime i turned around, she was always there to make sure my family and our guests were happy. We were so nervous and Allison just made it happen. Our wedding was so intimate, and beautiful. We truly couldn't have dreamed of a better wedding. Allison felt like part of the family. She def. Outdid herself. I would reccommend Allison and the Briarhurst Manor ten times over. The staff was also so attentive and amazing, even patient when dealing with drunkin guests. We cant thank you enough. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you. We cant wait to come back for our anniversary every year. This is the nost beautiful venue with amazing people👍😊

Re: “Uchenna

Kim Holdren Kowalski lists her self as currently employed by this business on her LinkedIn page, claims she's been their webmaster since 2011, yet in her glowing review, she does not disclose this.

At best it's highly questionable.

Re: “Arabian Nights Cafe

I was driving all day yesterday and didn't have time to prepare food so I was going to settle for a veggie sub at Subway. When I pulled in to the parking lot, I noticed Arabian Nights Cafe in front of me. I went on my phone and looked at the reviews and decided I just had to try the falafel over going to Subway. WOW! So glad I chose to try it. It was the best falafel I have ever eaten! Very friendly service and I was given a cup of tea while I waited for my falafel. The tea was amazing too! Absolute perfection!!! I will be coming back until I have experienced everything this place has to offer. AMAZING!

Re: “Over Easy - Tejon St.

Reminds me of deep-in-the-city eateries I frequented on the east and west coasts - but the food is a lot better. I never saw disorganization, just crowded. One mistake, and they fixed it. Go there. Huevos Rancheros. Go there.

Re: “Joey's Pizza

Joey's Pizza is NY Pizza? I am from the best place in the world for Italian food period. Brooklyn New York! Nobody can beat Brooklyn Italian food. You can see me at Joey's maybe once or twice a week and I'll tell you where real Brooklyn Pizza is, but it's not in Colorado Springs, The closest thing to Brooklyn Pizza is in Pueblo Colorado, off the river walk. Now I am not going to review Joey's kitchen, the appearance, the people that work there or their ahem IQ. It's about pizza, and this is the closest I've tasted to Long Island NY Pizza. Granted, it's not Brooklyn Pizza, but it is very close to Long Island NY pizza. With all the pizza places in Colorado Springs who claim to be NY Pizza, this is the closest you will find in all of Colorado Springs. I should know, I've been looking for 2 years.

Re: “La Bella Vita Ristorante Italiano

Anyone in Colorado who rates this place high, knows nothing about Italian food. Pronounced by Coloradans as "Eye Talian food". If you think this place represents Italian food in any way, you are sadly mistaken. My family and I will never be back. Sign me the only Italian in all of Colorado Springs.
