Steaks are always cooked perfectly. Quality ingredients and a polite and well trained staff make The Famous our go to restaurant for date night. Their wine list is also fantastic.

Our food, as usual, was excellent at the Famous- great steaks expertly prepared, great salads, and cocktails. The drawback was our server who seemed to just be going through the motions of bringing our food out. No smile, no conversation, no niceties at all. It's the second time we've had this waitress and we remembered our first experience with her was the same. Other than our surly server, it was good.

Wonderful food. My daughter said it was the best steak she had ever eaten. Large sides suitable for sharing. Excellent bar. I can't recommend it enough. A little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for.

Without a doubt, this is the classiest steak house in Colorado Springs. The steak was perfectly prepared, the sour dough bread with rosemary and butter was great to start with, the mashed potatoes and mushrooms were phenomenal. The service was also top notch!

I'm glad I had a reservation. The table was nice, although since I was dining alone they had me sitting at a table with a large column next to it so it was a bit tight quarters. The food was really good and the waitress was very attentive. I enjoyed my meal and look forward to coming back.

Delicious food, great service. Well worth the price.
It was very cold though, at least we're we sat. Our waitress tried to get the breeze turned down that was blowing right to our table but I guess it wasn't possible. Guess we just had bad luck with our table location. Everything else was awesome. Looking forward to next time.

We had to come back to this place as the first time we came here it was to good to be true. They did not disappoint. They kept up the expectations we had pre covid and it was a great experience. Make sure you have Ramsey and Michael helping you out. They made the experience unforgettable. The food was definetly something to remember as well. Had to be the best steak i have ever had!!! Everywhere else i eat will be compared to here, wish you were closer to me.

Steak and cocktails were amazing! Service was extremely lacking for us, unfortunately. Showed promise in the beginning, but then tapered off quickly. Our server didn’t check on us until we were finishing our meals. Then we were able to check out until nearly 30 minutes after our table had already been cleared.

Food was exceptional!
I read other reviews about the meat temp not being correct.
Ours was spot on. I had the Lamb chops with garlic fries. Lamb was prepared perfectly and the seasoning was traditional. My wife had the filet. It was prepared to order.
For the money, I would expect the time between courses to be spaced correctly.
It wasn’t that busy but it seemed like our entrees dragged.
We were there for our anniversary, the host and server both recognized our celebration. A complimentary desert was given(I was not expecting that).
The desert was a chocolate flourless cake. Extremely rich. If you are a heavy duty chocolate fan you’d probably enjoy it. I wasn’t a fan but the gesture was thoughtful.
It’s pricey but you won’t leave hungry. One of the best meals I’ve had in quite awhile.
Gave it four stars for the lag on the food. But that’s not the servers fault. She was very attentive.

Food was very good, although a tad overpriced. The restaurant itself was very nice, in a good location and the lighting was good. However, the service was less than I expected. Our server was terse, and seemed like we were annoying her just by being there. The staff also had put on a movie somewhere in the back of house that was audible from our table. Overall, I wasn't impressed. The food was excellent, but the service fell far short.

The decor and overall appearance was old and dark. We ordered wine and a French onion soup to start. The food came out at an impressive speed and the soup was great. We then ordered a ribeye with a loaded potato and a filet with asparagus (both medium rare). Again, the food came out fast however, my steak was very raw in the middle. When I asked for it to be cooked a little more, the waitress acted as if it was a rude request. When I received my filet back, it was well done...no pink on the meat at all. The asparagus had no flavor, only saved by the sauce it came with.

Over all, we won’t go back. The experience was that of a cheaper restaurant. The prices DO NOT match what you get.

The Lamb Rack was the star of the show, the New York steak was good but nothing compared to the Lamb. Our drinks were delicious especially the pickletini. The Tuna Tar Tar was ok, the flavors were inconsistent from bite to bite. We will definitely be back because of the Rack of Lamb and the drinks.

The initial table we were to be sat at was dirty the hostess made a comment to the bartender she indicated it was her from the night previous. The Bartender was yelling across the bar to her customers. The oysters dry as if they were shucked the previous night and wrapped over night. The waiter replaced them once brought to his attention. The steak was under cooked and the waiter took care of it immediately. Flavor of the food was good but not a “wow” for me. Over all the service was good but a miss on atmosphere and food. For the pricing and what you get I would not return.
