Wonderful service. Dining room was COLD! Mentioned it to our server. She said she would turn up the heat. Never did get warm. Hard to enjoy your meal when you aren’t comfortable.

The Caspian Cafe was recommended by a friend knowledgeable about Colorado Springs restaurants. It was quiet. The service was very good. The belly dancer was a hoot and the food was great. It is conveniently located close to I-25. Go!

Place was recommended by friends, tried it for the first time. Excellent service, live Belly Dancing on Fri & Sat. nights, large portions, food was excellent. I was still talking about days after on how good the food was. Caspian is now on our list to visit over and over.

We love this place for a varied menu of moderately priced unique dishes but absolutely hate the bright lighting in restaurant at dinner time. It makes it a “cafeteria style” atmosphere. This could be easily changed with a dimmer & so much more appealing.

Very disappointed with the meal. I ordered Olive chicken- it was terrible. The meat tasted bad. Waitress took it back- no response from manager or chef. I ended up with Spanakopita- which was also mediocre- it had- cheese sauce on it. I would not go back and I do not recommend it. Even the belly dancer was not that great ( I should know, I took bellydance for 7 years).
I don't like to give bad reviews but don't waste your time or money here.

From the personal attention when we arrived to the great authentic Mediterranean food , plus a real live belly dancer - this place is a gem! Savory flavorful dishes! We had the sampler platter of app’s and the baba ghanouj and falafel are out of this world - not like the run-of-the-mill Mediterranean style fast food places. Lamb tagine with artichokes and fava beans was hearty and delicious too! We were ther in a date, but we saw a multi-generational gathering who looked like they were having a blast - the kids had their picture taken with the belly dancer!

Caspian Cafe is much cozier on the inside than you'd think from seeing the outside. The menu is interesting and varied and the food was of a very good quality. One of the best restaurants I have visited in Colorado Springs.

Although the outside of the restaurant is somewhat unassuming, don't let that stop you! The food is outstanding, and the portions are generous. The chef was also willing to switch out rice (served with most dishes) with potatoes.

Recommended by the Band B we stayed in. Would never have found this on our own
Great atmosphere. Food was terrific and there was a woman dancer! She was great. Came out several times each time a different outfit. Once with Castaneda of a type...once with flames in each hand and the last with a real sword balanced in the hair. Fun! We had a great time.

The food here is fantastic. I am a vegetarian and the options are great. The spicy eggplant and the falafal are the best in town. The service is great and the waitress indicated that they could do other veggie options if we wanted. The food is very fresh and served hot. The only knock against the atmosphere was the belly dancer that was performing... it is kinda weird to be eating with a partly naked lady shaking it a few feet away. I could understand if there were some performance space that the belly dancer could be on, but just moving around the tables was odd. This is a great place for lunch and dinner.

We were able to get a reservation on short notice for a time that worked for us. Both the food and service was excellent. We were ther on a Friday night, so there was a belly dance performance which was entertaining, but did interfere with conversation.

My wife and I are always trying to treat each other to very nice restaurants for special occasions, that we haven't been to. We were running out of options locally for her birthday earlier this month. I have repeatedly seen Caspian Cafe on trip advisor highly ranked. Decided to make the reservation. Initially, when we showedup, it didn't seem too friendly, or the atmosphere we were hoping for. That changed when our waitress took over. It seemed as she wasn't supposed to wait on us, but she didn't want to leave us hanging. She was AMAZING! Felt more comfortable with my decision by the minute. My wife didn't seem thrilled with the menu at first, but based on reviews I begged her to keep an open mind. She got the Tiger Prawn pasta Special, which we both absolutely loved. I got the waitress recommended Persian chicken, which was full of flavor. We topped it off with sharing the ORANGE & SAFFRON CARAMEL CREAM for dessert, along with a complimentary SARAGLI GREEK NUT ROLL (2) surprise for her birthday. They were both perfect and complimented each other nicely. I normally don't do reviews, but I wanted this place to get some kudos for their delicious authentic food and dessert, and more importantly the waitress that helped us that evening. Thank you:)!

My wife and I came to Caspian's to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we could not be happier! The service was incredible and the food was even better! Our server Brandy was very helpful, friendly and prompt! The food is original and made from scratch and it shows! Will definitely come back! Be sure to go on a Friday for the live belly dancer! Sherry was incredible!

We were a party of 7. Seating was ok. Food excellent, but the belly dancer made us feel uncomfortable. If the food had been only mid eastern food the belly dancer would fit in better.
