Service and food (filet) were just great!

Overall, I would highly recommend Famous Steakhouse. The food was excellent - tender filets, the Famous salad, baby spinach & pear salad were very good. The Cesar salad my husband said was the best he’s had in a long time (adding anchovies he said was excellent). The sides were great - mashed potatoes, asparagus, mushrooms, all cooked perfectly. The rosemary sour dough bread was worth eating & we had to hold ourselves back from eating too much of it! I’m not sure the bone broth over the steak really adds anything & we asked for side plates so our sides wouldn’t sit in the juice.
Service was attentive & just right even if we were served slightly fast - party of 4 in and out in 75 minutes.
The atmosphere is OK, but I did like that all the tables are booths so you have privacy. It can get loud when piano player starts as the restaurant & bar are one open space & not that large.
Parking garage behind restaurant for $1.00 is convenient.
We would definitely go back again.

The Famous is just that, Famous and delicious. It is a pricey place and my bill was 215 for 2 filets 2 sides an app and 4 glasses of wine. The only problem I have is that the famous should impose a “no children under 10” after a certain time. For these prices I should be able to sit and enjoy a meal without some screaming 5 year old in the booth near us (yes it happened). My date and I while trying to enjoy out time together were kind of ticked off. Also a dress code of at least a button down shirt would be nice as I saw gentleman in trashed jeans and ratty T-shirt’s. It’s great they can eat there but if you can eat a 50-100 dollar steak at least dress the part. Other then that the service was great and the food was perfect as usual.

The Hostess was slow and we stood for several minutes while she was on the phone with no acknowledgement. However the wait staff especially Kat, were pleasant and efficient. The drinks,dinner and dessert were EXCELLENT.

By far the best meal I’ve had in Colorado Springs so far. It was pretty quiet—it was Easter dinner—but really good! We went to Prime25 roughly a month ago and the check at the end of the night was similar in price. Would 100% go here over the other restaurant based on the quality and taste of the food.

This place was amazing. High quality steak. I had the one with blue cheese. Although, if I return to Colorado Springs and return to the restaurant, I would try their Cowboy Steak. The blue cheese was a little overpowering. My daughter had the halibut. It was delicious. The creamed spinach was great. And service could not have been better. Our waiter rocked it. I think his name was EJ. The crème brulee was magnificent. Made for a very enjoyable evening!

It was my husbands birthday and I was recommended this place by a previous owner, Chris Martel. Even though we were a few minutes late, reception was welcoming and kind. I had made reservation 48 hours prior and when we arrived the table was already set for us. My husband ordered the 14 oz fillet mignon rare with the surf and turf addition and loved it! I ordered the braised pork shank and it was probably the most tender piece of meat I have EVER eaten. The wine was exquisite and the ol’ berries and bourbon cocktail was incredible. To put the icing on the cake (quite literally) they brought out a miniature homemade chocolate cake for dessert, compliments of the restaurant.
It is quite pricey and we more than likely won’t be here regularly, but I HIGHLY recommend for special occasions.

GREAT MEAL! In From Florida, I took my college student daughter here to celebrate getting together and not having been here before I made a reservation for 2 on short notice. From the hostess fitting us in with a great table, a Great Gin & Tonic, Great Filet/Salad/Baked Potato and all served by a Great Server like Bree, we couldn’t have been happier with the experience. The noise level (Piano) was a little loud but bearable. Will definitely be back! Thanks!

A little bit on the pricey side, but one of the best steaks I have had. Great for a special occasions. I liked the touch of the live piano player. Does make conversation a bit more difficult. Was not an issue for us, but may be for others.

The food and service was absolutely delicious and amazing. I husband and I went there as a quick date that I planned last minute. Getting a reservation was easy, and we were sent immediately when we got there. My husband some feeling a little unappreciated at work and I wanted him to feel appreciated at home. This place did the trick , He was ecstatic as he loves steak houses and said that the steak was one of the best ones he’s ever had in his entire life

Love the famous. Was so sad to take 5 guests & have 1) a horrid table Vs booth despite booking weeks in advance 2) both a 10 & 14 oz filet so undercooked that more than 1/2 the meat was uneatable. We sent one back (I walked it to kitchen as our server was MIA for 15 minutes) & still totally raw. Very unlike prior experiences. When 2 plates go back w 1/2 the $40-$46 meat on them, doesn’t the manager see it?

Filet mignon was absolutely to die for! Portions were enormous! Since this is an ‘a la carte’ menu, I was glad that we only chose one side and a salad as accompaniments. Steak was super tender and full of flavor. There was live piano music that made for an enjoyable experience for our date night. Highly recommended and would definitely eat here again
