Little bit pricey for two people if you have appetizer, salad, main courses, and desert with drinks, but the food and service were absolutely great.

The unparalleled experience of fine dining at Carlos' Bistro is enhanced by the special touches given to every detail. The ambience is delightful with miniature lights, outside fireplace, beautiful colors and quiet, relaxing space. A creative menu caters to special dietary needs and interests. My food, including portabello mushroom soup, scallops and wild rice, was exquisitely prepared, presented and served. This is my favorite place to dine in the entire area. For me, I'm willing to pay for perfection and superb wine!

The food is great, and the people are very nice.

Too expensive in my opinion though.

Was greeted by Carlos as we pulled into parking lot . We were celebrating our anniversary and Carlos and his staff didn't disappoint as we had a wonderful evening. Molly our server made the evening special with her great personalty and quality service. The food is as amazing as the wonderful staff. Would definitely come back again.

We have been going to Carlos Bistro since 2007, and while it can be a little on the pricey side it is worth every cent.. This is the place of choice for us when we want to celebrate or entertain family, friends or just wane outstanding food with truly fantastic ambiance. It will continue to be our favorite go to place.

Way overpriced and pretentious. Would advise potential patrons to expect major sticker shock if they’ve never been there. The owner hovering over the dinner table was creepy. And the food was average at best. Needless to say we will not return.

My husband and I went there for our 10th Anniversary. Our dining experience at Carlos Bistro was in a class all by itself. Sincerely the best meal either of us had ever had. The food more than exceptional as was the service and martinis. It made for a very special anniversary that we will not forget. Thank you to Carlos and your incredible staff.

This is by far the very very best restaurant in all of Colorado Springs and Denver...we eat in both cities all the time and there is not a restaurant that even comes close to Carlos Bistro. Food is always OUTSTANDING and the wait staff...all of them treat us like royalty. Carlos and Marcia are so warm, welcoming and concerned about every detail from drinks, food, comfort, and we always enjoy every minute of our time at Carlos Bistro.

One of the best restaurants and experiences we have ever had. Carlos made sure our night was perfect from the moment we walked in when he greeted us at the door. The filet and pork chops were exceptional. The wine list is outstanding as well! We stayed at the Broadmoor and this Resturant is a nice alternative to try something off the resort.

Literally from the moment you are greeted at the door until you walk out, there is an outpouring of hospitality. The food was absolutely phenomenal. The presentation was beautiful. Amazing wine selection. We ended our meal with the white chocolate bread pudding with Frangelico Carmel sauce. It was the perfect end to a perfect evening. Thank you Carlos and Molly for making us feel so welcome!

We absolutely love this place. The service is perfect, starting with Carlos greeting us in the parking lot! The food is perfect in EVERY respect! Taste, presentation and quality. Perfection doesn't come cheap, so we have to save this for special occasions, but it is worth every penny when we do go!

This was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Yes, ever! It was simply phenomenal! Carlos greeted us at the door line we were old friends. He stopped by our table several times as well. Stephanie was our server who was also excellent. I can’t not commit on the food. It really was awesome. It is pricey but honestly the quality and care was worth it!!
Highly recommended!

We had the Early Bird special which is a very good deal! You need to come at 4:30 and order by 5 pm. The entrees are about half price, but nothing else is. My wife's Coke was $7 which becomes $9 with tax and tip.

My wife and I both ordered the duck. Very good and adequate portion.

Excellence from start to finish. As soon as you arrive in the parking lot, Carlos himself is there to greet you. Worthy for a special celebration! Excellent, unpretentious service. The preparation and presentation of the food goes all the way into the details. Though it is among the priciest meals we've had in COS, we won't forget our experience here. The lobster salad was incredible, and the seared prime filet mignon could go up against any high end steakhouse. The standout of the night, however, was the Kurobuta grilled pork chop - we've never had anything like it.

Not having visited Colorado Springs before I went online & reviewed various restaurant reviews. Two or three stood out based on what I was looking for & I decided on Carlos’ Bistro. Best restaurant decision I have ever made. Carlos greeted us at the door as if we were longtime customers. Our waitress, Molly, was attentive, informative & pleasant. My wife & I both ordered the filet & we both agreed it was outstanding. Kudos to the chef! The entire meal was great. Thank you Carlos for a wonderful evening!!
