On this occasion we dined with another couple. Everything was exceptional. It always is. Thank you Briarhurst!

Very good food, easily allow for upgrades in the 5 course meal. Server was punctual but not impeding. Spacing of the food was great. The manor was an interesting experience.

Service was great. Food was excellent. They know how to take care of their customers. Didn't feel up tight like some of the more expensive places can feel.

My wife and I went for Easter Sunday Brunch. It was delicious -- a large spread of a wide variety of foods, including an omelette station and a carving station (roast beef and lamb). Most people were seated in a spacious, open, and bright conservatory area. I initially was sorry that we were seated in the interior of the old mansion; but later I came to appreciate the soft background music, and the overall quiet ambiance of the place. We very much enjoyed our brunch.

My Fiance and I have ate here 3 times now and every time the food is great and the servers are really nice. I always look for the $70 off coupon on Living Social.

We took my wife here for Mother's Day (actually on Saturday night). My wife and I usually dine here a couple times a year for a date night or special occasion. This was the first time I have taken the entire family and they all enjoyed it. As always, the service was exceptional and the food was awesome. I would highly recommend Briarhurst Manor and will definitely be back again.

This is a great restaurant for a special occasion.

We had a great night with great food. The atmosphere and ambiance was wonderful not to mention the service. Gourmet food at a reasonable price.

Great Food... Great Experience
Briarhurst Manor is a great place to experience fine dining. It's romantic from the moment you pull in to the parking lot with it's great scenery, beautiful building, and cozy dining areas. The pacing of the evening was perfect and the food was incredible. My wife and I had a wonderful evening!
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of my favorite places in Colorado to dine. Lived in Europe for many years and the Manor ranks amongst the best!

First time diners
We had a tremendous time. It was our first night without kids in 10 years and we had a nice, romantic evening. It was beautiful weather and not only was the service and food great but we found the waitress to be a joy to talk to as well. It may have been our first visit but it will not be our last.

Gourmet dining in old manor house
We chose Briarhurst for our shared birthday dinner because we had eaten there only once before (Murder Mystery) and we had a $25 gift certificate. We were promptly seated at a corner table in a cozy upstairs room, the only ones for most of our meal. Our five course dinners began with amuse bouche of goat cheese, grape, and smoked duck breast; tasty. My wife had the tomato heart of palm bisque; very good. I enjoyed the nicely sized Cara's salad. I asked for steak Diane well done and it was close. The crust on the potato cakes had a bit too much coconut. My wife's sea scallops were huge. Both dishes were on the salty side. The sides were good. Yummy cognac pumpkin cheesecake and double chocolate orange tarte finished us off.

We have been to the Briarhurst
We have been to the Briarhurst many times including a surprise birthday party for me this past winter. Superb service! Very attentive to my needs and others. Now we feel like we are going to a distant relative's home! It's like family!

There was a wedding going on when we were there. While that was going strong, we had lovely service and a great meal.
Yes, I order the same thing as the first time I was there several months earlier and it was just as good maybe even better since I knew what to expect and certainly wasn't disappointed.
We went back for a birthday dinner - thanks to their birthday coupon mailing. Otherwise we might not have been able to make it back so quickly. Miss a few so-so nights out for dinner and go here instead!

2nd. Time there.
Food and service is fantastic. Nice, quiet & relazing evening. Just what we needed.

The Briarhurst Manor's dining room is the perfect setting for a special occasion, such as an anniversary. We were treated like gold & the food was excellent.

History meets elegant dining
While vacationing in the area, my wife and I celebrated our anniversary and wanted a place far from the tourist crowd. We certainly found it! The Manor is a really cool old structure and the dining rooms are very well appointed. The menu had some varied choices...I went with the wild boar which was outstanding. Our server was extremely attentive and knowledgeable aboun everything on the menu and wine list. The one ding in the review...there was a vey light crowd the night we were there, yet the service took quite a long time (only one waitress for the entire restaurant from what we could tell...no bus staff at all). Accompaniments on the plate weren't as hot as we would have liked. Overall, a great spot off the beaten path.

Improving Food Quality
It had been about 6 months since the last time we ate here. The food quailty and presentation are markedly better than before. The experience was above average.

Charming, excellent food & service
My mom and I were traveling through Colorado Springs when we found this delightful foodies paradise.
Excellent service was offered by Josh and the kitchen offered even better food!
If this restaurant were closer to home, it would become one of my very favorite special occasion spots.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very expensive. Entrance to restaurant was confusing; had to use an entrance to another event location. Need a sign to indicate entrance, because the sign for this resaturant was located past the entrance. Not very accomodating if you are gluten sensitive.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Manor was a wonderful restaurant with just a few flaws that did affect our experience. One of them was not there fault as a fairly loud group of people were close to my table but the other were the flashes of the photographer at a wedding party outside. If i were to go there again i would request a room upstairs to avoid distractions from a formal event outside besides that the service was amazing and the overall experience was nice. They even followed through with my request for place cards and they looked professional and well done.

Special occasion dining
Excellent, attentive staff. Quiet dining rooms, great for semi-private/romantic discussions. Most of the tables are for 2 or 4 and the staggered reservations in the dining rooms makes it almost feel like a private dining room. Historic manor house makes the setting very special - ideal for a special dinner. The food was superb!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome as Always
I took my wife here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. This has always been one of our favorite places celebrate and have a quiet, elegant meal together. The food was exceptional as always. Our server, Josh, had waited on us before and was excellent as before. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic and the location in Manitou Springs is very nice. I highly recommend Briarhurst Manor.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
great place for a special occasion
It was our first time and will not be our last time. We had a great dinner, the service was wonderful and he explained every dish for us. The Library seating was a very nice spot and the time in between ever serving was just right. I would recommend it to my family and friends and we will be back. Thanks for a lovely night out!

Saving my pennies so I can return!
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here, just the two of us. The server was polite and personable. He made sure we didn't feel silly if we couldn't pronounce some of the names of the entrees. The food was fantastic but a bit overpriced. Although the website has a "business casual" dress code, we saw a few other couples in t-shirts and capri pants, jeans, etc. There were also some food splatters on the wall we were seated by. Overall, I would recommend this place if you have a little extra money to spend. I will be saving my pennies so I can return someday!

We came for our 7th Wedding Anniversary. We had Josh for a server. He is very good at his job and very informative, we have had him a couple of times which it was a pleasure to see he again.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect in every way
We loved this place. We celebrated a family birthday during vacation and loved it. Hanne pronounced Hannah was our server and she was very good and a real delight! Highly recommend. Old world style place with a lot of class. the food was excellent as was the presentation.

Anniversary Wishes Come True
Very wonderful dinner and our son joined us from Florida! Service and food outstanding!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our second visit to Briarhurst Manor and we were not disappointed. A few years ago we came here while in Colorado Springs and definitely wanted to make a return visit. Service was very personal & professional. Food was excellent and the wine list is good. The atmosphere is very intimate and quiet and the home is beautifully decorated. An overall outstanding dining experience!

What a great restaurant! Service was over the top!! Especially great for a special occasion.

Exceptional Six Course
Six course dinner on a Friday night; romantic, lots of food, friendly and a knowledgable server. Overall, a wonderful experience that exceeded my expectations. I had to take a small break before the main course but it was excellent and would recommend to my friends and family to get the coupon and celebrate. It was well worth the amount. The server was sweet and friendly; she gave us enough time to order and appropriate amount of attention (not too much or too little). My date and I truly loved the food, ambiance, experience and we would do it again!

Thank you for a very nice
Thank you for a very nice dinner. Our waiter, Josh, was WONDERFUL. He was very helpful and attentive.

Best meal we have had lately!
Food was amazing, service (Hanne) was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect for a quiet date night with my wife!

Quite a Surpise
We chose Briarhurst Manor based on Open Table reviews. We were very pleasantly surprised to learn the history and legend of the property. The food and service were outstanding as reviewed, but it was also a treat to be in such a unique atmosphere.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Relaxing atmosphere, good food, fine wine, rich history. I first went to Briarhurst on Valentines day, years before my wedding and was impressed with the quality of the food then as I still am now.

Even Better after Kitchen Remodel
We originally had a reservation for our 5th anniversary during the kitchen remodel. Instead of canceling, we just delayed it a few weeks and boy was it worth it! Food was excellent and the new menu, lots of old favorites and new items, made it hard to choose. You have to save room for the deserts!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We LOVE it here!
We've been going to Briarhurst Manor for years. We used to only go on special occasions but have made it an ongoing dining place because of their early-bird special (which changes monthly). This new feature has allowed us to try meals we wouldn't normally have ordered. We love that. It's such a beautiful location, with beautiful dining rooms inside and always impeccable service.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I came here for our anniversary. Spectacular setting, food and service. I highly recommend the Briarhurst Manor for your next date night!

The food and service was outstandin
The food and service was outstanding! The Chef prepared amazing dishes and Joshua, our server made sure our evening was as enjoyable as he could.
However, the only concern that will likely stop me from coming back during the winter season is the heating issue. The restaurant was cold. It was apparent management realized this by placing small space heaters everywhere, but it still was not enough to address it. When a person looks around and see most of the diners in their section are wearing their coats during a dinner, there is a problem. With the outside temperatures in the high 40's, the building was't battling freezing weather and from the hostess, this is a long time concern ownership has failed to address over the years.

Everything was Perfect !
Everything was perfect. A very good fine dining experience. The service from Josh was excellent.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
No complaints on anything. We had a 6 course meal that was outstanding. The wait staff was very helpful in explaining the menu and spent enough time meeting our needs but never made us feel bothered.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I can honestly say that this was the finest dining we have enjoyed in Colorado to date. Food was tastefully prepared. Service was top notch. Well worth the price.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time dinning at Briarhurst Manor and we loved it. The food was flavorful and well prepared.. The service was incredibly fast. We were celebrating our anniversary, and our server, Josh, made it really special for us.
