Carlos and his staff are exceptional together and take care of all their patrons as if they were entertaining in their own home. Carlos has an intuitive ability to understand each individual by suggesting exactly what they would love and appreciate. Each dish is amazing and is presented as if it is a fine art piece being exhibited in an exclusive museum. The selection of wines, bourbons, and other libations is very impressive, and Carlos and his staff are extremely knowledgeable about the origins of each and the best pairings. I am proud to have such a fine dining venue in Colorado Springs!

Excellent food from starters through desert. The service is unparalleled in Colorado Springs . Best cocktails and martinis in town. We visit frequently for special events, birthdays, anniversaries and to entertain friends and family. The exquisite appetizers are my favorite and they have a wide selection to suit every taste.

No doubt that this place is expensive however, the service was stellar, the food was incredible, and the personal attention that Carlos himself extends to each and every guest just isn’t found elsewhere. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there and it was a memory that we will never forget.

To say we love this restaurant would be an understatement. For several years, we have ventured here from 60 miles away to enjoy a wonderful meal with our family on special occasions. This time was no different that all the others! The food was wonderfully prepared and served. We ordered several different appetizers, all in our party of 7 ordered a different entree, and 3 desserts along with wine and drinks. You can't go wrong here, ever. It is a gem that outshines all other places we have eaten across the US and internationally.

Doesn’t look like much from the outside, but after you are meet at the front door by Carlos it’s all good from there.

Great wine selection, the steak tartare was amazing. Our saucy server had great come backs to our stupid jokes. She did refuse to light our brandy infused cherries on fire which was a disappointment. Oscar filet with onion risotto was on point.

I’ll be back!!

Outstanding food and service. Very pricey, but worth it. I had the one remaining special dish, veal osso bucco. It was so rich and hearty, perfect for a cold, snowy night. The calamari we had as an appetizer was tender and fired perfectly. My wife had the grilled sea scallops and they were cooked to perfection and the risotto was great.

The owner, Carlos, met us in the parking lot, introduced himself, held the door for us, and checked on us several times throughout the meal. Great place for a romantic dinner.

I would highly recommend Carlo’s Bistro. Our dining experience was top notch from start to finish. Carlos himself works all areas of his restaurant from talking to the customers, cleaning tables, asking if you need more wine, and making sure you’re happy. His wait staff is excellent and the food is the best we have had in the Colorado Springs area !

Delightful evening celebrating our daughter's and son in law's anniversary with their 6 months old baby. Peruvian born owner chef Maitre D Carlos greets us all ebulliently at the door and stops by throughout the fine meal to ensure our good time. The wait staff is very accommodating and even our babe is perfectly satisfied by the environment.
This is an expensive but highly valued eclectic menu. Our foursome had duck breast. Veal milanese, scallops and grilled calves liver as mains. All excellent. Tasty. Cooked correctly and presented smartly.
The wine list is expansive. For oenophiles , pairing is assured and a 50$ bottle list assures all tastes will be sated.
We appreciated too their acceptance of our Open Table reward.
Great show. Thank you Carlos Bistro.

It is almost beyond belief that an establishment of this quality resides in a city known for it's miserable cuisine and chain restaurant mentality. Carlos' has provided a welcome high standard that makes it a shining star. Clearly worth the trip!
