  • "We recently dined on the outside patio to celebrate a family birthday. The surroundings, ambiance and service were all exceptional. A truly enjoyable experience. Prepare to spend $$$."

  • "I wanted to take my wife somewhere special for her birthday and she actually found The Margarita. We arrived at about the right time and were quickly shown to our table. The place is interesting with a light atmosphere. There were people outside on the patio but we opted for an interior seat. We looked over the menu (although we had already seen it online) and made our choices. My wife, being a vegetarian, went for the roasted veggie eggs benedict and I went for the crab benedict. Both were obviously freshly cooked, and I must admit, of the two, the veggie benedict had more flavor. That's not to say that the crab benedict was not good, it was. It's just that the veggie benedict was just that little bit better. We will go back there."

  • "My wife and I recently moved to CO Springs from out of state and have been underwhelmed by the food scene. We've used Yelp to try and find some good restaurants, but it wasn't until we ate at The Margarita that we finally had a great dining experience. We sat on the patio on a perfect evening. The live music wasn't my favorite, but it wasn't obtrusive or annoying. We had the pre fixe menu with five courses, cocktails and wine and it came out to about $70 per person, plus tip. Not cheap, but the food and service were excellent. Portions were just right - not huge, but not small plates either. We were there for several hours, which was perfect for us, but if you're looking to dine and dash, you're out of luck. Highly recommended!"

  • "The food was decent; well-prepared fried green tomatoes and a generous portion of fish. The salad was very mediocre (I ordered greens with sesame dressing, which turned out to be plain greens overdressed in something very garlicky with a few won ton crisps on top). I was disappointed in the number of choices as well: just four for each course. Easier for the chef but a little frustrating for the diner (e.g. if you don't like fried food, raw oysters, or goat cheese, you're out of luck for the appetizer). The service was fairly attentive but rather self-absorbed about the restaurant: instead of focussing on the diner, it was all about the Margarita at Pine Creek. Which, unfortunately, wasn't all that special, at least in our view."

  • "Margarita at Pine Creek is never a disappointment! Chef Viedt is fabulous! Told exceptional waitstaff, Devon, that one party had a food allergy and they graciously accommodated it. The food was scrumptious and excellent. Had the brunch menu and it made for a great Father's Day! Highly recommend it! My guest had a poached egg dish that was wonderful and I had the salmon, which was perfect. The crumb cake was an extra added, yummy addition."

  • "For those of us who prefer quiet settings, modest prices, quality food, and sane meal portions to overeating at expensive, crowded buffet troughs, The Margarita at Pine Creek hits the mark. I was looking for a place to take my elderly parents for Fathers Day breakfast/brunch and we had a lovely experience. The menu selection had plenty of variety without being overwhelming and our selection, crab benedict, which came with steamed asparagus, fresh fruit, and coffee cake, was delicious. My parents don't eat out often and it's rare that they enjoy a restaurant enough to put it on their list of places to go when their best friends are in town. The Margarita at Pine Creek made that list. We look forward to returning and highly recommend."

  • "Patty and her capable staff have been serving superb food for more than 40 years. The dinner was extraordinary as always. Th best restuarant in the area and they do a superb job with fish, not a common skill!"

  • "This restaurant is a lovely place to get away from it all in the middle of the city. It is relaxing and romantic. The perfect place to lunch with girlfriends or celebrate with a lover. The food is exquisite! And I was delightedly surprised about how reasonable it was!"

  • "We were a party of six having dinner at the end of meeting at the Broadmoor. The Margarita did not disappoint. Everyone loved their food. We shared our interesting five courses around the table outside on the patio. A lovely evening - highly recommend."

  • "When YOUR sign says fine dining, you better have the service to match the food quality. My lady and i have been wanting to try the margarita for a while. Our server, who certainly wasnt trying to be rude, had a few flaws. There was a mix up with the drinks, the other server working that night assumed i got a beer and my partner ordered the champagne; incorrect. I was back handed by our server more than once. My lady's entree was delivered while she was still eating her salad. Just amatuerish "fine dining" service at best. The food was the best ive had in town. My only complaint was that my fish was completely underseasoned. Its refreshing to see great food in the springs, better service would have justified the price tag a little better."

  • "My friend and I had lunch here last week. We had the fried green tomato salad and it was soooo good! Of course the bread loaf with the pimento cheese on the side is to die for!! We also shared the French Onion soup. All I can say is Wow! So good! And the chocolate cake for dessert was divine. And our bill was $30 total. Of course that was without the wine!! "

  • "Absolutely awesome! Great service, outstanding food and exceptional atmosphere. There were four of us for dinner. We each had the 3-course dinner. Between the four of us we sampled the wild boar, sirloin steak, duck wontons, dinner and Caesar salads, and crème brulee. None of us were disappointed. "

  • "The salad, soups, bread, and lovely pound cake were wonderful. It was perfect for the occasion.. The quiet, attentive staff, lovely seating, and pretty view were just what I was looking for. I wish there had been one or two more lunch choices-yet I would highly recommend it for special occasions, and it is reasonable enough to go there on a whim. "

  • "We celebrated a family member getting a job after 5 months on unemployment. It was enjoyable and great food."

  • "the furnishing haven't been updated for quite a while and the restaurant is showing its age, from the tables the the structure itself. It is like they do't care the walls have paint falling off, etc. Waiter was largely inattentive. Charged $7 to split an entree for my two children, which would have been fine, but they just brought an extra plate and didn't offer to split the entries physical. Was really hoping we'd like it but the food was average, the facility was falling apart and the service wasn't anything to write home about. For the prices charged, you can definitely do better elsewhere in the Springs."

  • "The dinner was expensive, but the service a little better than that at a normal restaurant. But what really was not good was the area we ate in. The table was a two person table that was like in one of those comedy movies where people sit at opposite ends of a long table. The music was so loud coming through the speakers that my wife and I could not hear each other. After eating our dinner, I asked the hostess where the harp & flute music that had been advertised were. She said in the dining room. We were in some other room, I guess. I asked why our "Open Table" notes about the harp music had not been taken into account. She said that she had no notes. So Open Table and Margarita At Pine Creek are now on my DO NOT USE / GO TO list."

  • "We chose this place to celebrate a friends 33yr career/retirement from the military and we were all sooo pleased with the atmosphere/food/wine it was the perfect spot, off the beaten path with a simple exterior and a very cool, private dinning interior. You think you are getting an ordinary menu, by no means is that this place. Three to five course choice and it is very good, all four of us loved our choices and we all four ordered something different. They also have bands, on some Friday nights outside. There was a band playing in the basement some Celtic/Irish music. All kinds of wonders and worth a one time visit at least."

  • "We visited The Margarita for our anniversary dinner as we wanted something special. The food was excellent, my steak was prepared perfectly medium rare and her sea bass was also. The sides were delicious and pleasing to the eye. She is gluten intolerant; the waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful in selecting delicious fare and presenting the order to the kitchen. She thinks the waitress was not as professional as she likes; there was a bit of a lag between the clearing of our main course dishes and taking the order for desert. When we did get the flourless chocolate torte and the flan they were excellent We liked our experience and will return."

  • "We dined at The Margarita at Pine Creek based on several positive OpenTable reviews. Each course of our 5-course dinner was excellent. There was a three piece combo performing live music on this Saturday evening - 9 out of 10 quality. Our waitress was persanable and had sound recommendations for some of our course choices. The atmosphere is difficult to describe, but unique and interesting. Nothing cookie-cutter about this restaurant."

  • "The Margarita continues its tradition of good food, well presented and served attentively in a relaxing atmosphere. The brunch menu has something for everyone. Dinner always features a dish or two that are a bit unique and worthwhile. The only downside is sound reflection if there is a loud table close by. Not that the restaurant is loud, only that one or two loud individuals can make a significant difference because the ambiance is low key and relaxed."
