Don't miss this place!
Shades of the old Garden of the Gods Club when Walter was at the helm! World-class food and an upscale clientele. Easter Brunch was fabulous and most reasonably priced.

The food, as always, was fantastic!
The food, as always, was fantastic! Great place to have lunch. I've been several times with two of my elderly neighbors and they just LOVE going to Walter's for lunch. The food is great and no one makes a big deal out of us just lingering and chatting. Last time we went, we arrived at about 11:30 and left about 4:00!!

A Great Night with Good Friends
Oustanding dining experience all around. Dined with six friends - excellent serve and food. Met at the door by the owner who later checked in with us to ensure we were satisfied with our meals. Everyone enjoyed their meals.
Bistro has a nice bar area, and dining area. Dress from casual to sports jackets. Really nice atmosphere...my wife and I will definitely be back..

Our Special Occasion Spot
The lobster bisque alone would bring us to Walters. Add the delicious wine and the perfectly cooked filet Oscar and you can't go wrong. We like the warm welcome we feel whenever we go. The quality of the food is outstanding. The service was excellent.

Food Solid, Waiter Stiff
Enjoyed our meal but as young 40-somethings, we felt a bit out of place. Our waiter was a bit stuffy and not terribly friendly (it was our 10th anniversary and he barely acknowledged it). I think I would have preferred a more eclectic menu, but that's not the restaurant's fault. I should have chosen better. Food was definitely good (beef carpaccio and salad appetizers, lamb for my husband and chicken for me) but not over the top as I'd been expecting.

Another memorable experience.
Walter's has become our favorite place for special occasions. We are treated with dignity and grace. We are welcomed as friends, and given special treatment related to our occasion. Thank you for offering this special place for our anniversary.

Another Wonderful Experience
Walter's Bistro is #1 on my list of eating facilities to go to in Colorado Springs. Great for lunch or dinner, the location is ideal, the food is always fresh and made to perfection. We have visited Walters on several occasions and are never disappointed. On this visit we had lunch and enjoyed the loaded bacon and potato soup for appetizer. FANTASTIC!! Following that, the salmon dish was again very well made. For dessert we had creme brulee, my personal favorite but I must tell you anything on the dessert list is very good.
Highly recommend Walter's Bistro. They are professional, friendly and have a good reputation.

What a great find in a little neighborhood strip center! Food was awesome, especially the buffalo tenderloin. We will definitely be back!

Stunning Food, Notable Service
Walters was an unexpected discovery for us last year, and we've been back several times for a few very notable reasons:
1: The food is always incredible and it's obvious that Walter takes great pride in the food that they serve. 2 things on the menu have been there since the beginning: Walter's Lobster Bisque and his seabass entree. If it is your first time visiting Walter's I recommend you try them both.
2: Walters is owned and operated by Walter. He started his bistro 14 years ago. Walter stopped by our table 2 or 3 times to ensure that we were getting the absolute best service. He is very proud of his dishes and his waitstaff and it certainly shows. Walter has some of the best dinner service in Colorado Springs.

Quiet Dinner with Great Service
Walter's Bistro is an upscale bistro in our neighborhood. We were greeted like we came every week. Received great service including finding the right gluten-free items along with the offer for the chief to make something to order. Main dining room is quiet while the bar area with lower priced menu was busy this Friday night with a crowd of locals. Highly recommended.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for our anniversary and the staff was very receptive and congratulated us and sat us in a quiet section. Very knowledgeable staff about the wines and food and pairings. Great recommendations. Some of the items are just a bit on the pricey side, even for a fine dining establishment.

You'd Never Guess....
You'd never guess that this restaurant, located in an ordinary strip mall, is a diners paradise! The service was impeccable and the food was extraordinary. We highly recommend it for fine dining in Colorado Springs.

A special place.
Visited for wife's birthday. Used on line reservation system which worked great. Food was excellent, well prepared and just the right amount. Our waiter was prompt, attentive and very courteous. The wait staff all worked together to make sure we had an enjoyable dinner experience. We'll definitely return.

We drove from Aspen to see Pikes Peak. Open Table recommended Walter's and the recommendation was totally accurate. A great meal from drinks at the bar through dessert.

One of the best in COS
Fine dining can be tough at times in Colorado Springs, but Walter's Bistro is always very good and as importantly very consistent.
Servers are well trained and don't rush you through the meal, the wine list is nice with selections from ~$30 to >>$100 and the food is always excellent. Well worth it.

If your in the Springs...
Great place tucked away near the Broadmoor. I had read about it and when i knew i was going to be in the Springs I made a reservation. I would go back in a second. What they do they do well. I am sure the quality of the food and the service is very consistent. It feels like a step back in time-to a time when dining out was a luxury. I highly recommend Walters.

You can rely on Walter's Bistro for a quality experience. We had a party of 7 people. First of all, Walter's has large round tables for bigger groups so you can actually talk to everyone without getting up, unlike at a long rectangular table. Their food and service is NEVER an issue. The food is always delicious and the service is always on point. Warm and friendly and very professional at the same time. We had a great night. Absolutely recommend it.

The owner not only greeted us at the door but passed by the table a few times just to make sure our needs were being met. The food was very good. Location very convenient and uncongested. Easy parking. Waiter was extremely knowledgable about the food, its' presentation and very attentive to inquiries regarding the offerings. It has become a favorite family dining experience for us generally and on special occasions. Good job Walter.

Good food for Restaurant Week
Walter's Bistro is always great, but usually out of our price-range. Restaurant Week gave us an opportunity to sample appetizers, entrees, and dessert at a price not much more than that of the entrees themselves. The lobster bisque has always been a specialty of the house, and it was as spectacular as ever. The chicken was as tender and tasty as any we have ever had -- and, because my wife's hand is arthritic, the kitchen staff cut it up before sending it out to us. The trout was good, but not as impressive as the chicken. I think dessert was a kind of peach cobbler a-la-mode, and it definitely was a nice way to finish the meal. The wait staff was attentive, the atmosphere warm and cozy. It was a good way for us to end Restaurant Week.

Everything about this place was excellent. The waiter knew everything we asked, was very respectful and took great care of us. The food was amazing I will definitely be returning to this restaurant.

Walter's is a gem!
Walter's is a wonderful neighborhood gem! Both Lunch and dinner can be a casual get-together with friends or a romantic evening with a significant other. It's never too noisy. The service is stellar without being obtrusive. The food never fails to be delicious.

Walter's was great
What a wonderful surprise. Strip mall setting, 10 minutes from the Broadmoor. I encourage anyone to leave the property (which is fantastic) for a great dinner at Walter's. The food was creative, approachable and extremely satisfying. Not hoity-toity food or attitude here. Our waiter was awesome, knew the wine list inside and out, and made sure everything was great every step of the way.

While the restaurant is located
While the restaurant is located in a strip mall, the inside was cozy and worked well for our client dinners (I sent two separate parties). The food and service was perfect, too!

Fine dining at it's best
Walter's is a great restaurant - perfect for date night (reservations recommended), or just hanging out in the bar (first come, first serve seating). The menu is full of tempting items. I had the Sea Bass that came with truffle gnocchi and a lobster cream sauce. The portions were quite large for the quality of the food - a nice big piece of fish with significant chunks of lobster in the sauce. My wife had the Colorado Rack of Lamb, which was amazing. Again, large portions (a sizable 4 bone rack), but perfectly cooked and amazingly seasoned. When we were their, it came with an Andouille sausage bread pudding. Walter, the owner, personally oversaw the quality of the restaurant and ensured guest satisfaction. Really a classy place.

Walter's Bistro Experience
Easy to find and get to. Common exterior/pleasant refined interior. Were seated by front door which was a little noisy to start out with, but when asked if something could be done to minimize it, a door was closed to the small room we were in which helped and we were thankful for. The rest of the evening was a very pleasant and the service, food and wine(s) we had were outstanding. We will go back to enjoy an special occasion in the future.
