Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to Walter's a few times now. Nice place for either a quiet happy hour, or a more vibrant dinner scene. This was a business dinner for four. There were many times that we had to lean into the table to hear the conversation, so it is a little on the loud side, but not excessively so. Overall we all enjoyed our meals. There were some classy touches, such as the cream "W" inscribed on the lobster bisque. I had the Caesar salad as well as the Sea Bass. Both were good, but not remarkable. I didn't really care for the cream vegetable medley. I wouldn't say there was anything wrong with it, just not what I was expecting."

  • "I got the grilled veal and it was fantastic. Cooked medium just like I asked. Seasoned perfectly. The soup, cheese potato, was flawless."

  • "This restaurant is right in our neighborhood but we resisted going to it because we thought it would be terribly expensive and it seemed only old people went there. But we were pleasantly surprised. The food was wonderful - we especially enjoyed the filet - very tasty and tender and cooked to perfection. The service was very good and the atmosphere was elegant and nice and quiet - just how we like it. And it was not a break the budget type of place, not cheap either but what you would expect to pay for the quality. We enjoyed spending our anniversary dinner there and will probably go back just because. It does not need a special occasion. The bar was full of people and also the private rooms."

  • "Hadn't been to Walter's in a while and was very glad I returned. There were four in our business group and not a thing was left on any of the plates. Food taste and quality were excellent and everyone concured it was a great evening. Looking forward to going back with my wife for a special occassion, or maybe just to have a great meal without a special reason for going. "

  • "We enjoyed our visit to Walter's Bistro. It has a nice ambience and great service along with great food. My group had the lobster bisque, escargot and foie gras with scallop as a first course. Everyone was pleased. The foie gras recipient said it was good but a bit too salty. We sampled and agreed. The other dishes were excellent. For our main courses, we had the filet, lamb, seafood trio and pork tenderloin. All were cooked perfectly at the temps requested. The seafood trio (my dish) was perfectly cooked and delicious with one exception - too much salt. It tasted as though the person putting on finishing salt has a VERY heavy hand and is the reason for 4 stars rather than 5. Dessert (creme brule) and coffee were also very good."

  • "Walter's Bistro is a warm, friendly place to meet with friends or take a client to lunch or dinner. The menu is always fresh and new with many healthy choices. They offer a wide variety of wines with informed wait staff ready to help you make a selection. My favorite place to eat in all the world."

  • "We loved our meal and the ambiance. The service could not have been better and the food was great. The only constructive criticism I have is that the fish was a bit over cooked for my personal preference. Otherwise it was perfect. Thank you so very much for a wonderful evening. We will return. "

  • "My wife and I have been going to Walters back when it was on Eighth street. To us it is a special occasion place, usually our anniversary or her birthday, sometimes Valentines day. We dine out a lot, and usually at some top end restaurants, so we know good food, waiters and bartenders. Walters never disappoints. Sincerely "

  • "Unfortunately, I had high expectations for our brunch. It was just ok. It seemed dated, not sure when the menu was last changed? I'm having a really hard time finding good food in the Springs. I have a few more places to try before I move on to Denver."

  • "I had notified the restaurant that it was a birthday celebration. They did give us a nice booth. The food was pretty good. One warning: It is a pretty senior crowd. The menu and food are somewhat retro. My only real complaint was that I would have been okay with paying for a birthday desert (none offered), but, when I requested ice cream instead of whipped cream, a portion half the size of a ping pong ball came out with a surcharge of $2.50. Really, for a birthday and a tab of $120.00 they couldn't thrown in a tablespoon of ice cream?"

  • "Walter's is our go-to restaurant when we want to entertain out of town guests. The food, service and ambiance are consistently excellent. The wait staff is friendly and attentive, and are well-informed regarding the cuisine. Walter's is also my husband and my favorite for celebrating special occasions (birthdays and anniversaries). Our favorite dishes include the lobster bisque (a must have), the escargot, the fillet and lamb. We always ask about the specials and often choose these. The desserts are wonderful, however, we are often too full to indulge."

  • "Walter's offers excellent wines by the glass - wines you will not see elsewhere by the glass. The lamb was very good. The seafood mixed grill was good, but not great. Caesar salad was not very good, but wedge was good. Considering the type of restaurant, I thought the presentation of the food would be somewhat better. A nice place, but not great. Our salads came right out, but there was quite a long wait for our entrees with no contact from serving staff. We did not have time dessert."

  • "Walter's is consistent in both excellent food and service. We went on a Friday evening at 7 p.m. and our only disappointment was that the prime rib special we both ordered was already sold out by that time. Walter personally stopped by our table to apologize and when we remarked that we'd need to come earlier in the future if we wanted that particular meal, he told us we could just call him personally and he'd set aside two meals to insure we could have what we wanted at the time we wanted to dine . Talk about personal service! This is a wonderful place to celebrate a special event, but also is a warm, inviting and delicious "go-to" spot for an excellent dining experience."

  • "Thank you Walters Bistro for giving me and my husband a fantastic dining experience :) the waiter was kind and knowledgable, the food was INCREDIBLE, and a gentleman who I believe was the owner himself was so nice and concerned about if we were enjoying ourselves. It was worth the 300 dollars we spent that night. 10/10 would recommend and will come back. Gorgeous romantic ambience :)"

  • "Although this was our first visit to Walters Bistro, we felt right at home. The service and ambiance were terrific. I thought the Filet Wellington was wonderful and the fresh salad was just right for me."

  • "We have been to Walter's before and had a good experience. Hhowever this valentines day dinner was not up to par. The menu for the night was going to be 3 courses. My food was not very good. My first course I chose was the gazpacho soup, and followed by the monk fish. I felt neither had much flavor at all. My wife chose the salad and the sole that she said was good, nothing spectacular. Desert was good but was probably not even made by Walters but a buy out item for them. We felt that we were rushed which made the night just the more a disappointment."

  • "Tab for adult family of 6 was $650 (included: 4 cocktails and 1 bottle of sauvigion blanc)... for dessert got talked into a $110 small bottle of dessert wine... price wasn't mentioned. In general wines are grossly overpriced. Having said that the food was excellent and the lobster bisque has to be tried to be believed - creamy and delicious, truly unique. Go, but watch your wallet."

  • "This was our third visit to Walter's. We were so impressed by the food and service the first time that we looked forward to returning again. Above all else, the culinary delights of Walter's is beyond reproach! With every selection of lamb, fish, etc., the superior quality of the food along with the chef's excellent ability to prepare it comes through loud and clear. Although the service was excellent for our first two visits, we were somewhat disappointed with this visit. The waiter, while attentive, prompt, and knowledgeable, was not as friendly & welcoming as our first two waiters. However, the manager of the restaurant more than made up for any of the waiter's weaknesses with his friendliness and concern for our dining experience."

  • "Everything was great except that I noticed after getting home, that I was overcharged for a bottle of wine... by $15. Probably an honest mistake, but still disconcerting. And one of our party had to wait for a second filet to be prepared an inordinate amount of time (due to a heavy vein caught by the waiter)."

  • "Easy to find and get to. Common exterior/pleasant refined interior. Were seated by front door which was a little noisy to start out with, but when asked if something could be done to minimize it, a door was closed to the small room we were in which helped and we were thankful for. The rest of the evening was a very pleasant and the service, food and wine(s) we had were outstanding. We will go back to enjoy an special occasion in the future."

  • "Let me preface by saying I have been to walters a handful of times and it has always been phenominal. So I have high expectations, so my critique is very "knit picking". The waitstaff was distracted due to a large party. We waited 15 minutes for our wine. The ahi appetizer was wonderful, however a little over priced for a starter, $16. I always enjoy walters chilean sea bass. It was perfectfully cooked. The entree was a little light. 4oz of fish, 5 pieces of gnocci and 4 small bites of lobster. And the truffle gnocci was only finished with truffle oil, I expected some shavings. I expected our three course meal with one glass of wine and tip to cost $100 and was a little shocked with a $150 tab."

  • "Walter's is a great restaurant - perfect for date night (reservations recommended), or just hanging out in the bar (first come, first serve seating). The menu is full of tempting items. I had the Sea Bass that came with truffle gnocchi and a lobster cream sauce. The portions were quite large for the quality of the food - a nice big piece of fish with significant chunks of lobster in the sauce. My wife had the Colorado Rack of Lamb, which was amazing. Again, large portions (a sizable 4 bone rack), but perfectly cooked and amazingly seasoned. When we were their, it came with an Andouille sausage bread pudding. Walter, the owner, personally oversaw the quality of the restaurant and ensured guest satisfaction. Really a classy place."

  • "Great place tucked away near the Broadmoor. I had read about it and when i knew i was going to be in the Springs I made a reservation. I would go back in a second. What they do they do well. I am sure the quality of the food and the service is very consistent. It feels like a step back in time-to a time when dining out was a luxury. I highly recommend Walters."

  • "What a wonderful surprise. Strip mall setting, 10 minutes from the Broadmoor. I encourage anyone to leave the property (which is fantastic) for a great dinner at Walter's. The food was creative, approachable and extremely satisfying. Not hoity-toity food or attitude here. Our waiter was awesome, knew the wine list inside and out, and made sure everything was great every step of the way."
