The Caspian Cafe was a wonderful place to eat. We hadn’t been there for some time, and saw their menu online and decided to try it. We were very pleased with everything. We went a little in the late side for Colorado Springs, 8:00 PM, but was worth it. Very healthy and decadent items in the menu. 116.00 for drinks, appetizers, dinner, and dessert. I highly recommend it.

I've been meaning to get back to this place for years, and finally made it.. made me feel that any place I went before it was a mistake! My wife and I enjoyed every minute and every bite.. the Feta Crisps were especially sensational. I know why this place has lasted so long.. looking for good mediteranian food? Go to Caspian Cafe.. it's awesome!

Food was great but service was very slow. We had to get up to track our server down more than once to order additional drinks and appetizers. It was a relatively slow Sunday evening so not sure what happened. It was our first time there and we’ll most likely try them again on a Friday or Saturday night when things are hopefully a little livelier. It was just way to quite and the background music was enough to put you to sleep. Really good food though so worth a try.

Overall, it was a good experience but I do not believe that Chri pricing is correct for the food that you get. The food is good, but it is not worth what they are charging for it

I must admit that when I arrived, I judged this book by its cover (It is REALLY old and dated outside) but the food and service were fantastic! The Sea Bass Special was pretty good, but the Lamb Shank and Sambousek were exceptional. Easily some of the best food in town. Wines and wine list were just ok.

We try to dine at Caspian at least once a month. Asia, our server is wonderful. Food was good but not excellent this time. Maybe the regular chef wasn’t there. We shall return. Great choices of wine by the glass.

When some very good friends from out of town came to visit we brought them to the Caspian Cafe for dinner since we've always had good experiences here, and our most recent visit was no exception. Two people ordered the stuffed pork; one ordered the honey and almond chicken, and one the porcini ribeye steak. Each meal was prepared and presented to perfection. Our server, Jen, was outstanding - very knowledgeable, personable, and attentive. A perfect dining experience!

My 2 year old book club was looking for a quiet, mid city restaurant for our monthly gatherings. Caspian Cafe is perfect! We were seated - 10 of us, and the service was great! Some of us vegan and some not - the menu and accommodations were perfect! Going again next month.

Awesome Anniversary Dinner

Excellent cocktails. We've learned in just the last couple years how a cocktail to start a celebratory evening sets just the right mood and pace for dinner to follow.
Wonderful wine tasting., We sampled a Greek red wine and decided it would be perfect for our dinner.
Awesome appetizers. The calamari is nothing like any calamari appetizer you've ever had before. Mediterranean tapenade and fried calamari is the best I can describe it. Absolutely unique and delicious. The fried halloumi cheese was wonderful too.
Outstanding salad. The Spanish avocado, orange & almond salad was delicious.
Entree. The shared Middle Eastern lamb and beef kabob was so tender and very flavorful. By this time we were almost full so brought half of it home to enjoy tomorrow.
Dessert. Orange & Saffron Caramel Cream Custard was truly heavenly. What a memorable experience to share.
Service. Megan couldn't have been more attentive and pleasant. Superb.
Caspian Cafe gets another 5 star and A+ rating from us. From beginning to end, an enchanting dining experience. The classical violin music set such a sense of well being too.
We love you, Caspian Cafe.

This was my third visit to the Caspian Cafe and it was as outstanding as were the first two. The menu and food was excellent and the service, twice by Asia (sp?), outstanding. We plan to take out of town guests when they next arrive and consider it to be "the place to go".

We went on Valentine’s Day. They had a pre-set menu with 3 different packages to choose from. If had known this ahead of time, I probably wouldn’t have gone just because the choices were limited. However, the food was delicious and I’d definitely go back on a regular day.

We have been coming to Caspian Cafe for years, and it just seems to get better. Brandi was our waitress and she is excellent. Professional, fun, and personable, she is just fantastic. The food is always amazing, and the portions are big for the price. It is somewhat casual, but also quite romantic. Highly recommend!

Extensive wine list with wines in all price ranges. Dolmates were very tasty. I had a chicken dish that was a little on the spicy side and my wife had an eggplant dish that she said was quite spicy. Neither dish was listed on the menu as being spicy so it caught us both off guard. The food was excellent but if you have dietary restrictions make sure you question your server.
