Great special occasion place
I took my wife here recently for our anniversary. She loves Greek food and we have always had a good experience at Jake & Telly's. She's a vegetarian and she can always find something on the menu she likes unlike many other local restaurants. The best time to go is during the summer when you can sit out on the patio. They always do a nice job and the staff is always friendly and attentive. I wish I could eat there every week!

Our dinner was very good, and the wine excellent, We were celebrating a birthday, so dessert came with a lit candle--VERY good! All in all, a very enjoyable evening--romantic, and relaxed. Our server was very professional, but friendly. We enjoyed talking to "Chloe."

Went to Jake and Telly's to celebrate Mother's Day, for my mom and I. There were six in our party. The staff was attentive and friendly. I like that the owners are interactive with the patrons. It was a great experience and the food was delicious (as always). We will definitely come back in the near future.

Jake & Telly's Greek Taverna
Excellent service! Great food! We were celebrating a family graduation, mother's day, and two birthdays with out of town family members. The server made the dining experience exceptional!

I've been going to Jake & Telly's for at least the past 7 or 8 years now, and not once was I disappointing!! They continually strive to keep their menu interesting, updated and delicious. The food is always freshly prepared. In this day and age, it is very rare to find a restaurant that maintains such high standards of service and food. Especially once they've been around a while. I've experienced lots of restaurants cutting back on quality and service after the initial opening. Not at Jake & Telly's. You can easily expect the same standard of service as if you were dinning at The Antlers or The Broadmoor, with out the hefty price. The specials they offer, such as their wine tasting dinners, etc. are also quite affordable.

Good for dinner
Great greek food for a moderate price. We had 7 people ranging in age from 14 to 74 and everyone found something delicious.

Best greek food ever
This restaurant was a great find in Colorado Springs. The staff was super friendly. Great service. Very attentive but not over barring.

Jake and Telly's is one of our favorite restaurants in Colorado Springs. The food is delicious, they have a great location in Old Colorado City, and we have always had wonderful service. Their balcony is delightful when the weather is nice, and we've enjoyed rainy afternoons inside with Greek wine and hors d'oeuvres.

Greek Done Right
Had a wonderful experience - the server really knew her stuff and pronounced everything very well. She even easily described all the Greek wines. From the appetizers to the desserts this was absolutely delicious!

Birthday Dinner with family
Great hostess, she was very friendly. We started with drinks and a nice sampler, then the main course. We even had room for desert! I would definitely recommend this tavern to friends and family coming in from out of state!

Nice night for an Anniversay
We were celebrating our 35th Wedding Anniversary. The server came to our table on the veranda somewhat "sparkly and bouncy" (which was a bit too much) but I saw immediately that she noticed that this was too over the top and she backed it off a bit. We just wanted a quiet night, good food and drink. She was very kind, attended to our needs, served great food and recommended items from the menu. I had the Lamb kabob (don't remember the Greek name), and a dark Ale. I always tip and she deserved all she got and more. :)
I heartily recommend you folks and we will return.

We have eaten at Jake and Telly's often over the years it has been in operation. The food is always above average and the portions are such we generally take half of our meal home for the next day.
This is a unique Taverna and you will be glad you visited.
On our recent experience the less than positive was the service. We have had wonderful servers in the past, this time it was a person we have never seen before. He was less than eager to serve us even to the point of ignoring us for some time. His poor performance is not up to the standards of Jake and Telly's.

Never any problems when dining here. Everything is always great.

A Taste of Greece
Wonderful food, friendly service and a great feel.
Jake was a fantastic host and we felt as though we'd left Colorado Springs and were transported to Greece. The feeling of belonging was a treat for us, as though we were part of the family.
We plan on making Jake and Telly's a regular part of our dining from now on.

Wonderful experience here- moderately busy for a Sunday night. Our server, Laura, was excellent. Quick with great recommendations, not too intrusive but checked on us appropriately. She is a great asset to this team. Fresh pitas were wonderful. The brizole is amazing as is the simple gyro plate. Good bar selection. Nice outdoor 2nd story seating. Ambience was nice... Greek type murals on the walls, good view of downtown old colorado city. Only downside is that the restaurant does not have handicap or stroller access and when I asked the hostess how groups got strollers into the restaurant, she politely said no one brings them. So we carried our son up, no big deal, but could be a deal breaker for others. Highly recommend!

Absolutely the best food! The Hummus appetizer was great and plenty for four people. The server suggested a fabulous Greek wine. The Monk Fish in brown butter was delish...and the chocolate, pumpkin, salted caramel parfait was scrumptious! As always the cheers of Opa from the patrons at the bar gave the evening a fun and joyous vibe! Jake and Telly's never dissapoints!

A Greek experience !!!
Such a fun dining experience! I went here with a few of my gal friends. The service was great! The waiter was open to questions and gave his suggestions on wine and food. The owner/manager went around to all the tables to make sure everything was up to par. Food was delicious! The prices are a bit pricey to my budget. For an entree and drink plan on spend probably $20 per person. Although they have the option of soup/salad if you do not have an appetite for a full entree. The stuffed gyros was fabulous! Kind of a smaller portion but if u have a small salad on the side I think it would be a balanced meal. The ambience was wonderful! Dimmed lights, colorful decorations, and music to set off the Greek experience !!

Wonderful for any occasion, really! Especially fun on, "Special Events" , & certainly a must for those seeking an experience away from "Mainstream". In addition, out of an, at least 7yrs that I've been frequenting, the consistency has always been there...

so much fun
we had a great time! the service was genuinely friendly and they were a lot of fun. we felt very welcome...like family. the food was soooo yummy and it all came out in perfect timing, no overlap of appetizers with meal. We chose to not go to a couple other places due to their obnoxiously loud NOISE LEVEL. it seems like some restaurants are trying to be night clubs these days...uuugh. We talked and laughed the whole time...even with the people who worked there...it was great! The food was priced fair and no one left empty bellied! We had such a great time and will definitely go again!
Thank you so much for staying on the west side and giving us somewhere to brag about!!! Thanks guys!!!
