A word from Ritz Grill
The friendly, nostalgic atmosphere of the Ritz Grill has been a longtime favorite of the downtown crowd. The Ritz has been a Tejon Street hot spot for more than 25 years, and has gained notoriety for its food, cocktails, and live music. The trendy bistro-style menu features Asian, American comfort and pasta bowls and sandwiches, burgers, steaks, seafood and California-style pizzas. Large, unique salads, frozen martini glasses and international-inspired recipes have become Ritz staples since the day the doors opened for business. Continuing an ongoing effort to create exciting flavors, the Ritz features lunch and dinner daily.
After 9 pm, the Ritz begins its transformation into downtown's premier nightclub. Thursday thru Saturday, the Ritz features the best in Colorado live music with absolutely no cover charge. Bands from the Springs and around the state perform the finest dance and party music, while the celebrated Ritz bartenders mix your favorite martini.

Diner Reviews
  • "What an amazing restaurant! Started off with free pretzel bites and fondue with a coupon from their website. Our server was Krystal. She made our experience over the top by knowing the menu, being attentive to all parties at our table including the children. We ordered burgers, fries, mac n cheese, rustic pizza, kid's chicken strips, and a bacon pecan brownie. The food was on point! Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Birthday dinner. Food was surprisingly and overwhelmingly salty. Probably just a fluke. Wasn't looking to get anything out of the complaint, just wanted the kitchen to know! But birthday girl ended up eating/drinking on the house which was a kind gesture. Cannot remember our servers name, a younger guy, super awesome and timely. Thanks!"

  • "After walking Tejon Blvd all day we decided to give the Ritz a try. We loved the Art Deco theme. The crafted cocktails are really nice and they had a decent selection of beer and wine. The food was really good but the menu was limited and should be expanded. Parking is always a problem on Tejon but if you find a space within a few blocks you should really try the Ritz."

  • "Being unfamiliar with downtown Colorado Springs, I found the listing for this place on Open Table as it is close to the hotel I was staying in. It was a cold, snowy night and the place wasn't overly crowded. The menu contained a number of interesting choices but we settled on Chicken Milanese for my wife and Steak a Frites for me. These followed a tasty appetizer of raw tuna tacos. The capper was a caramel doughnut bread pudding that made my eyes roll back. All the food was perfectly prepared and delicious. We told our server we weren't in a particlcular hurry so everything progressed in a leisurely fashion that suited us well. Overall, a great experience."

  • "Had reservations on New Year's Eve through Open Table/restaurant website. Received several confirmation emails. When we arrived they did have our reservation. They were able to seat us, but it was worrisome. Otherwise it was a fine experience."

  • "As a special Christmas treat, we decided on the Ritz Grill. There were mixed reviews, but after reading the menu and prices online, I decided to give it a try. We were all glad we did! Coming from Portland, Oregon where pretty much everyone is a foodie and having a chef for a husband, it has been difficult to find the kind of innovative food we are use to here. Other than someone accidentally putting a slice of lemon on my Peking Chicken sandwich and the drinks were a bit expensive, it was a great meal! Lacey was a wonderful server!"

  • "I admit I haven't been to the Ritz Grill for over a year. Not sure why, as I always enjoyed it. I finally made it back this past weekend and was somewhat surprised that the menu has gone from a full menu with lots of choices, both traditional and new ideas, to a fairly basic bistro type menu with no specials and fewer choices. What we had was very good and the prices are definitely lower than before, but we were there for dinner before the Colorado Springs Philharmonic performace on a Saturday night and had really planned on a gourmet dinner. Next time we go we'll make sure it's a night we want more of a bar food selection. Currently good food, low prices and great service,..previously great food, higher prices and great service."

  • "The ambiance of this restaurant is good but the lack in professionalism and service puts this place to shame. I made a reservation ahead of time knowing we were going on a Friday night and assumed it would be busy. Upon arrival the hostess said she was going to clean off a table that was available for us and 10 minutes later we were still standing waiting to be seated meanwhile she was assisting another table. A waiter then approached us and said he was going to do the same and 10 minutes later we were still waiting for the same table, a third person finally came up and cleared the table we were to be seated at. Half an hour later and we finally sat to order. The food was okay for the price. I do NOT recommend this place for any occasion."

  • "Visited on Labor Day and got there in time for happy hour specials. Excellent double-pour martinis! We also tried the Voodoo Tenders and the hummus, both were yummy. We were advised by our server there were steak specials on Monday, $14.99 for either an 8oz flatiron or a 10oz NY strip, so we stayed for dinner. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Indulged in the bacon pecan brownie for dessert and it was outstanding. The salty zing from the bacon crumbles with the chocolate was great."

  • "My husband and I had a great time at The Ritz. We went for a date night and had a great time. We were originally seated near the bar but it was too noisy so we moved to a quieter table near the front of the restaurant. It was not overly rowdy, we just wanted a quiet spot to talk. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. Our waitress was outstanding and very attentive. We would definitely make a return trip to The Ritz."

  • "Nice atmosphere, fun decor and nice outside seating. Our server was great, the food was good but not exceptional. Although, I think it is a place you would enjoy and can depend on having good food and service. Will try it again, on another visit."

  • "My husband and I used to go to The Ritz often when we lived closer to downtown but hadn't been in many years. Decided to go down and try it again and it was fabulous! The Asian wings are the best we've ever had! Very large, moist and full of flavor. We will definitely be going again!"

  • "Ritz has a number of interesting dishes and the food is good. We went early and there were not too many people there, but the service was not great."

  • "First off, the man candy is absolutely amazing. Bacon is a "super" food of flavor, but the sweet-salty-spicy candied coating makes this appetizer a home-run. The "steak 'n frites" was nicely done. I would come back in a heartbeat for the glazed donut bread pudding - alone, it can come off as cloyingly sweet but the coffee anglais was a phenomenal topping!"

  • "My short rib sandwich was tasty but cold. My friend's short rib dinner was "tasteless" in his opinion. Another friend had to wait and ask for his drink a 2nd time. Other diners were very satisfied. Your restaurant is beautiful and I especially like brunch there."

  • "this was our second visit to Ritz Grill, and it was as terrific as the first. the asparagus fries were amazing, and the grilled chicken mac and cheese that my son ordered was the best mac and cheese that I have ever had - not too much cheesy sauce and the shell pasta was cooked perfectly. With my son attending Colorado College next fall, I'm sure we'll be going back to the Ritz Grill many times over the next four years."
