We enjoyed our time in Bonny & Read. Our booth made conversation easier to hear each other. The art work is fabulous & adds to the lore behind the story of Bonny & Read. Our service was friendly, but not intrusive during the meal. A long table of young loud women seated near us was unpleasant as they drank & talked louder. The salmon special was particularly flavor. Picking out bones surprised us. I realize the “steak” cut made it hard to de-bone. The Key Lime dessert added a special touch to our meal because it was original - tender cake-like layers. Stronger line flavor is needed. Thanks for a delightful dining experience.

I had the lobster roll with iced tea for lunch, the roll was small, not toasted and all claw meat. Not very good for 20$.

This is a true gem of a restaurant. Great menu, good service and affordable wines. We loved the oysters on the half shell. Beet salad was delicious. Good seafood menu with steaks as well. Fun environment - not real formal, but great food. I would go back in a heartbeat and almost went back that night.

Food was delicious. We both ordered the Halibut. It was fresh and very tasty. The only negative I would say was when we sat at the bar it took awhile to be acknowledged. There was only one other person sitting at the bar and he worked there. There were two staff members working the bar and we felt ignored for awhile. We had Matt as our server and he was very good and attentive. I would recommend this restaurant because the server and food were very good. 😊

Our waiter, Matt, has served us before and is the best waiter in town! He was honest when we asked him about the entres and we are glad we followed his advise. The only downfall with this restaurant is the high top tables. If you are short, like me, or an older person (also like me!) they are uncomfortable to sit at and three of the five of us who dined together were still experiencing back pain the next day. Sit in a booth!

We had a good dinner but our waitress said you need to order because we have another reservation for this table at 7:30. We were there on our reservation and I find this to be very rude. We got there at 5:30 and had a drink before ordering our meal. She felt as if we should order right away. Not good on her part.

Mark our server was very knowlegeable, made great recommendations and did an amazing job on our date night! The food was amazing, definitely recommend the Blue Crab Dip. The only downside was the steak we ordered was 1/4 fat, would still go again and we loved the food so much!

My husband and I had heard they had fresh seafood, which is hard to find in Colorado. Sure enough, the seafood was amazing. We thought the service was exceptional and the food was amazing! We'd definitely recommend to our friends and family!

this is the second visit in a row here where the fish was overcooked and dry ( halibut) ; a friend had the salmon - also dry
the shrimp cocktail was 3 tiny shrimp w a cocktail sauce red hot spicy
lobster corn chowder - watery, and very light on the lobster

overall - this restaurant should not bill themselves as a seafood restaurant until they better learn how to prepare seafood

The food was very tasty! The $15 appetizer was super tiny! But the rest of the food came out in great portions.
For 20% added gratuity I would have liked a little bit better service but it was a fun night out.

On vacation, booked this in advance because menu looked great. Arrived and waitress told us seafood delivery didn’t get there that day, July 5. No fresh seafood (likely 2 days old since probably closed July 4th, not sure though) at a Seafood place? That cut out more than half the menu options. Had a salad and steak instead. Average food. Overall, an underwhelming experience.

Bonny and Read Fresh Seafood and Steaks has great atmosphere, it's very clean, with outstanding service, and the food tasted really good, however, the lobster roll was very small for the price, (of course this is not the east coast so it may not be fair to compare them to the east coast), but the lobster roll was half a lobster roll. The fried oysters was mostly breading. The fried clams must have been pieces of oysters, not whole oysters or maybe they were very tiny oysters. If you like breading then it was very good, but it will be a disappointment if you like oysters. The salad was fresh and very good.

I loved it! It took a little bit for the waiter to come to us but after he did the first time there was no more problems. For Colorado the seafood was reasonably priced and tasted fantastic. Also there in house drinks were fantastic. I will definitely be returning.

Second time here -- first time was just after their opening. Service in the dining room was very good. Our server was friendly and had some great suggestions along the way. The food was delicious -- the shrimp and scallop ceviche, and clam chowder were great dishes to start off the meal. Our main dishes were prepared perfectly and were quite tasty. The only downside was in the bar area, which wasn't all that impressive during our first trip. The bartenders (still) weren't very attentive and the bar was messy. For example, after eventually clearing a dirty dish that was on the bar when we arrived, the bartender moved it to the ledge by the liquor bottles where it sat for at least the 20 minutes we were up at the bar -- so much for the nice presentation of a pretty impressive bottle collection.

This was our first visit to Bonnie & Read and we hope to dine here on our next visit. It was the best meal that we had while in Colorado Springs. Located in the downtown area, parking can be a bit tricky to find, but it is worth the effort. We had the scallops, halibut, and nightly surf and turf. All were excellent. Loved the grits on the scallop dish and they were cooked to perfection. The halibut and surf and turf were also excellent. We thought the prices were very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food served. Service was very good. A gem.

Soup and oysters were good. Lobster was spongy, may of been over cooked. Waiter did not return to see how our food was nor if we wanted more water or another drink. Had to ask someone else for our bill. When he did bring it to us he said nothing. It was like a fly by dropping off on the table. Was really excited for our dinner since there were a lot of good reviews. Very disappointed for my husband birthday dinner.
