The Margarita At Pine Creek
Way above my expectationThe name doesn't mean what you think it does. I was expecting upscale mexican--what I got was locally sourced and fresh ingredients in a wide variety of american and fusion dishes. This restaurant delongs in a big cosmopolitan city, and Colorado Springs is lucky to have had it for almost 40 years. Our server was one of the best I've ever had while not being too stuffy or formal--she knew exactly how and when to enter our conversation and could not have done a better job. Even the quirky court musicians in the center of the room were interesting without being overbearing. And finally, after eating what I though was rich food, my sensitive stomach didn't pause a moment-- the mark of truly good food.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food . . . with limitationsI had not been to the Margarita at Pine Creek for several years and found it just as charming as I remembered. Their food is excellent; however, I do believe they need to expand their options of vegetarian and gluten-free offerings. I do not eat meat or gluten, so the options for me consisted of their salad and broccoli soup (which I assumed was vegetarian). On their Web site they indicate that if you have "dietary restrictions" you can call ahead and they will accommodate those. Unfortunately, I was unaware of that so was stuck with soup and salad. They were delicious, but I would love to see more options as many of the good, local restaurants are offering. Their dinner menu may offer more variety, so I'll try them for dinner.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful eveningThe Margarita always meets my expectations. The food and service were wonderful, as usual.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOn Saturday evening, theyOn Saturday evening, they had an oboe, flute and piano trio playing.
They didn't play constantly, so it was neat to hear the music, and then
have no trouble at all conversing.
