The food was outstanding, we had the french onion soup, it was the best soup we ever had. My husband ate the Wagyu Flatiron, he was amazed, und my Pork chop was moist and very yummy. But our waitress was a little grumpy and it was very lout.

The au poivre was rancid. And, the oysters Rockefeller was a disappointment. But, the steaks were amazing.

Food was very good overall, but they under cooked my steak and it took 3 tries to get it close to medium. Still charged $65 for the steak, which I had a few bites of.

Sometimes it can be a hit or a miss, but our dinner this time was an absolute hit. Our server was great, the wine was flowing, the meals were on point and the berries with whipped cream, topped the evening perfectly.

Ate at both The Famous in Col Spgs & Flemings in Denver. Frankly, Flemings was the better value. 11 0z filet $56 versus Famous 10 Oz filet at $65, additionally, both restaurants knew it was our anniversary & my birthday. Flemings gave us best wishes cards and two boxes of chocolate. Not a peep from the Famous. Was disappointing although certainly not a requirement. Famous still a very good urban setting steakhouse, just lacked the attention to details of Flemings. The Famous wait staff was friendly, accommodating and efficient. A very good restaurant overall.

The Famous beyond exceeded our expectations. We had all the specials (white wine scallops, cauliflower au gratin, and cowboy bone in rib-eye) and had absolutely no regrets. Our server was amazing and we have absolutely no complaints.

Wow! This was a fantastic meal! It’s pricey but OMG good. The sides are plenty for two. We had the roasted sweet potatoes with apples and pecans and my husband said they were the best side dish he’s ever had. The green beans were also exceptionally good. I had the filet and he had the strip - both excellent. Huge portions. If we’d been good we would have split one entre as the portions are very generous. The drinks were also excellent. Very attentive and pleasant service. We will return our next trip.

Love the old school vibe. Good selection of cocktails and wine. Menu is pricey but not way out of control. Sides a la cart, not unusual except I agree with others on the charge for butter for side dish (as well as other toppings), that's beyond ridiculous...tacky. I can see why some would be put off and not return. Had wagyu steak, wasn't the best and was seasoned with something that did not agree with me. Did not order toppings for steak. No toppings should ever be needed for a good steak properly prepared. House salad was very good and bread as well. I'd return again if in the area but try a different main course. I liked the atmosphere.

The overall experience was great. The menu was a slimmed down version compared to what the website had but overall there were ample things to choose from. My steak and my wife’s lamb were excellent. The drinks were prepared vey nicely and reasonably priced. But where things really got expensive were the additional side dishes.
I was a little shell shocked at the bill and it will go down as my most expensive dinner yet. And while I almost always leave a generous tip once you factor in your tip and then get hit with the PIF fee our tip was close to 28%.
Ouch!
Will I go again yea but only about once or twice for the year.

Very over priced menu. Steak was good but $60 for just the steak no sides is way overpriced. Then the baked potato was $ 6 PLUS $ 2 for Butter & another $ 2 for Sour Cream. Seriously overpriced.

We do serve everything ala carte. We are observing the markets every day to keep updated menus with the volatile markets that there are right now, especially with beef and seafood. Thank you for your feedback.

At first I was skeptical of the restaurant. There was nothing on the appetizers list that I cared for & they do not carry my first two choices of alcohol. I ordered the 20 oz rib eye steak, baked potato w/ extra butter & green beans. The food was amazing! Best steak I've ever had & the green beans were pretty good too. I can't see paying $4 for extra butter & overall their prices a pretty high, all menu items are A la carte. I would say to try the restaurant at least once & you decide.
