    The two signature steaks were cooked behind us not table side and had very little to no flavor. The scalloped potatoes were delicious. Lobster appetizer was ok nothing spectacular. Over all I think it is overpriced for the food.

    The Pepper Steak, their signature dish, is as good a steak as you will get anywhere. Additionally, everything else on the menu is equally delicious.

    Delightful food with a wonderful service staff. Traditional fare done very well for a table side experience. Recommend a filet, bananas foster, and a good glass of wine. I think their price, in comparison to equivalent service and cuisine in the Springs, is very good. A deer sauntered by the panoramic windows (which my wife loved). Relatively, the weakest link is the dining space. It would be cool to combine the glorious service, food, and lovely view with a slightly more dynamic dining space…but that, in no way, compromises the experience…it’s just a possible enhancement.

    There’s a dress code although it’s not listed anywhere on their site. They didn’t acknowledge that our reservation said it was to celebrate our anniversary. They didn’t ask us, though they asked every table around us. They sat us at a crowded center table when there were plenty of tables along the edge. We felt discriminated against due to not being white. I’d never go here again. Racist and snooty.

    Good food! But a steakhouse whose best days are behind it. The location is too distracting during the day. Trash is seen in bushes outside the windows by the table. Scratches are visible on the windows overlooking the city. The staff wear oversized tuxedos. The table side service carts were dirty. There is no dress code, so people show up in t-shirts and shorts. The food is overpriced for that atmosphere. But, the table side experience is fun. The food tastes great. In the evening it is a more charming atmosphere when you can see the city lights and all the other things are less visible. Worth trying.

    We had a great time, but for the first time the service was a little lack. We were left for a long time with no main course and were not informed until they saw us getting restless. We were enjoying our company but this was a birthday celebration and it was uncomfortable to be sitting there while everyone that came behind us was served and finished before us. We hope that when we come for another celebration or special night this does not happen again. We were not comped a drink or anything that would have made it a little more acceptable for the long long delay.

    If you are looking for great food, this is up there for a place to eat in Colorado Springs. If you are looking for service, or that place that goes above and beyond, this isn't your place. I brought my girlfriend for her birthday dinner and made a dinner reservation. When we walked in and saw the tables by the windows with the views, I thought this will be a very gorgeous and romantic dinner. Nope, we got seated in the middle of the restaurant, which felt like we were in the way of the large carts they use to cook tableside. We had 5 different people help us at our table, which was weird also. 2 different cooks and 3 servers. Once we were seated, we were given a drink menu, but had to ask for the dinner menu after about 5 or so minutes. Finally, it was my girlfriend's birthday as I said, which you would think the restaurant would do something for, like a cheap glass of wine, or maybe a dessert. I spent 300 dollars on dinner, but they couldn't give her a 9 dollar glass of wine. It wouldn't be near as insulting if the table behind us got a glass of port to sample and their dessert provided because I believe they called out the restaurant or something like that. Oh well, lesson learned! Also, I wish restaurants would enforce their dress code. We got all dressed up for a special night only to see diners in flip flops and Hawaiian shirts. Good news is, if you want a super tasty expensive meal that you don't have to dress up for, this is your place lol!

    Dinner was fantastic! It started with the serving staff; they were engaging, knowledgeable, and staid. The meal was quite remarkable, and perfect in every way. From the initial visual and first bite, through the savory consumption, to the after-dinner glow of satisfaction, we were delighted. As much as we enjoyed the celebration of our 34th anniversary, this meal will be remembered and celebrated for years to come. We will be back!

    The food can be counted on to be perfect and usually the service. But the 4 of us arrived for our 7 pm reservation and were seated and given a wine list and ordered a bottle. 40 minutes later we finally went to the front and asked if we could please have menus. They arrived quickly and everything went smoothly from there.

    I’m hesitant to recommend it because I’m afraid it will get too busy and we won’t get seats. First time we went was on March 23, 2022, my birthday and my wife was looking for someplace special. Wow!!!!did she hit a home run. We are regulars at the Broadmoor and if the Broadmoor is a five-star this place is six stars. 1) less expensive than the Broadmoore. 2) food is just as good and somethings better. 3) The view is spectacular if you get a window seat. 4) we typically tip 25 to 30% however their gratuity is not mandatory yay! 5) Side dishes come with the meal. 6) The ambience is wonderful. Some meals are cooked at your table and the staff is friendly, attentive and wears tuxedos. Downside: 1) they did not serenade me on my birthday. 2) They did not offer my son‘s wine, “Z&M Twisted Vines Wines and Winery” A week later we took our special friends and they said from now on they will invite their special friends. Did they pay me to say all this…NO! My endorsements are not for sale. Jesse Zesiger
