Bonny and Read Fresh Seafood and Steaks
They had a nice booth waiting for us. Service was very quick. Drinks were excellent. A little on the loud side but not bad overall. This is a fairly "upscale" restaurant but the prices are, in our opinion, very reasonable.
Awesome seafood and a fun atmosphere!
Outstanding customer service, great environment, fresh seafood, and, great tasting steak. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves!
We have been here a couple of times and we always love the food, the drinks and the service.
Wow! Amazing menu and food
with reasonable prices.
Food was delicious! We would definitely go again. Lighting was a little bright, making it feel like we were in a cafeteria.
Stuffed lobster was not enough food, my filet was slightly overcooked, our waiter dropped off our food and never came back to see how our meal was. The mashed potatoes were good, but dry, and i wanted more butter.I wanted to order a glass of wine,, but he never came back to ask anything. We asked for our check thru another waiter, which he promptly gave us, then our waiter arrives, we explain our situation and all he says is I am sorry. We watched our waiter circle the room many times, but never even looked at us. Very dissappoined in his service. I don't know that we will be back, also it was my birthday which I announced making the reservation, but no acknowledgement from anyone. I wish I knew the waiters name, but I don't think he told us, he was very unprofessional.
Great restaurant to enjoy a good steak or fresh seafood downtown. They have a wonderful happy hour as well with a good deal on drinks and appetizers. Good menu options for dinner with an extensive wine list. Highly recommend this restaurant.
The staff were great providing attentive service coming to the table at the right moments. The food was excellent - well-prepared, portions were good, and interesting menu choices. We had a great special occasion evening.
This is my favorite restaurant. I have tried numerous entrees and appetizers and each one was delicious and beautifully prepared and presented. The wine selection is good, the staff pleasant and unobtrusive and the ambiance is conducive to conversation.
The steak with the blue cheese crust was outstanding! The cod stuffed with lobster was good. However, the lobster stuffing was very light on the lobster and too heavy on the breading. I couldn't taste the lobster. Oysters on the half-shell were outstanding as usual.
Average at best. Under seasoned and expensive. Please ask you chef to travel so he gets a perspective. I do not recommend based on taste and value.
Sorry but based on decades of traveling and fine dinning, this restuarant is below average
We had great expectations for B&R, but we’re disappointed. The chowders were excellent, the service was very good, but the mahi-mahi was Over cooked making it quite dry. This should not happen in a restaurant specializing in seafood. Also, even though I made it clear it was our Anniversary, not one mention was made!
Excellent place for steak and/or seafood! Great service and quality food!
We made a reservation knowing that the venue would likely be busy. We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation, and were told we would need to wait in the bar area until our table was ready. Luckily, a small table in the bar area opened up five minutes into our wait; otherwise, we would have had to try and stand unobtrusively between the door and bar area while waiting. It is a small space comparatively to other area restaurants, and became quite loud with the music and voices. The menu looked to have several creative options. There were a few gluten free options and were labeled with a symbol on the regular menu. The meal was on the pricier side for just the two of us, but we also wanted to have lobster tail, which was only available as an add on to our entrees (as neither of us like whole lobster, this was how we were able to get what we desired for our meal).
We always enjoy our meals and experience at Bonny and Read!
The ambiance and decor was spot on. We really loved the atmosphere. But for me the food was a major flop. I’d been craving a lobster roll for weeks so we went here. $30 per plate and the lobster was rubbery and dry. Super disappointed. Maybe a different entree would be better but I’m not jumping to take that risk when it’s so pricey.
So good! Must try! The waiter was so nice too. We will definitely go back soon.
The halibut came steaming hot and dried out. Boring sides. U eventful red potatoes. The garlic potatoes tasted artificial. The steaks were ok. Save your money.
This was our third visit to B & R. Always excellent service and fantastic food. Sophisticated space. The very best in CO Springs in our experience!!!
Beet salad recco with salmon was great tasting. Server was authentic, friendly and attentive. Blackened shrimp Alfredo hit the spot.
Food was very bland. We took my son here for his birthday as he wanted seafood. We ordered the Shrimp appetizer and we got 4 large shrimp that would have been good if they had seasoned the shrimp before breading. It was very bland and just ok. I definitely wouldn't pay 12.99 for 4 shrimp that was ok. Next I ordered the Lobster chowder and it was terrible-no taste at all. I added tons of salt and pepper and it didn't help. Sent it back and ordered the crab dip which was ok but it was mainly cheese-couldnt taste the blue crab. My son ordered the Blackened fish sandwich which was underwhelming. The fish although being blackened needed salt and pepper to give it some flavor. My husband ordered the fish and chips which again the fish had no seasoning before it was lightly battered. This dish would have been good if it had been seasoned because the batter on the fish was good. They served frozen fries with it. I would think at a place this expensive that they would have at least had fresh fries instead of frozen. We will not be back again. Very disappointed especially with this being a special occasion for my son.
My husband and I love Bonny and Read! We go here several times a month. We always recommend it to our friends and customers. Great meals, great servers, great wines and cocktails!
Service was exceptional and food is stellar! We choose this restaurant for special occasions but it can suffice for great night out anytime! Always reliable with excellence!
It was a great experience and I loved it
served one of the best steaks I have had in a long time, very good food. It was very low key and the server did a great job
Very nice and relaxing atmosphere. Perfect for date night or just an intimate dinner.
Always a great meal and delicious cocktails. One of our favorites in CS!
The portions were not enough compared to the price!
Fantastic food and value! Service was great also. Great place to go with family and friends. We’ll definitely go back again.
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$.
We made a reservation to celebrate my brother's birthday. We all had a wonderful time. The food was excellent and our waiter was wonderful. I would definitely recommend Bonnie and Read to anyone looking for a delicious meal and a fun atmosphere.
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.
It was okay. Small portions for price. Ambiance was nice. Our waitress was good.
With family in from out of town, we could think of no better place than Bonnie and Read for a great dining experience and with more family arriving Last evening-- we will be back soon.
Wonderful meal for our anniversary! Great service, great good!
Great staff, steak was medium but very dry. Very average food, expensive
The Cod with Lobster stuffing was excellent. Our sister-in-law had the salmon and she said that it was one of the best salmon dishes that she ever had.
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. 😊
