All of the wait staff are awesome, Stefanie, Brian and Molly were working that night. And of course Carlos is the best.
One of the best places I’ve ever ate.
Simply put....Amazing!!!! From the food to the service nothing was sacrificed. We both ordered steaks and they were cooked to perfection. Saved room for the dessert this time and so happy we did:)
One word, exceptional.
Simply remarkable...each time we go we have such an amazing experience. Carlos and his team are genuinely friendly and provide an intimate meal that will never disappoint. From fresh ingredients to unique dishes, every visit is just as remarkable. Carlo's Bistro is a gem within Colorado Springs and little, if anything, compares.
My local favorite for a special dinner. It's always a 1st class experience.
Always the best. Carlos and his team are fabulous. The food is perfect. The setting and ambiance are wonderful as always.
The wait staff was exceptional. Early bird menu was reasonable. Careful with drinks, ask for prices. (One drink will cost more than a main)
Outstanding in every way. Very welcoming, original cuisine, attentive service.
I'm at the Bistro a least 1 time a month.
The service is outstanding. I love the escargot.
I reserved a table for my fiancé’s birthday through Open Table on a week night. From the moment we arrived, Carlos and Jennifer welcomed us and remembered our names throughout the evening even remembering us last time we were there in our engagement dinner. This is why Carlos Bistro is the one of the top restaurants in the country. The food: amazing as usual, the ambiance of the evening and the attention they give every one of their customers. Highly recommend.
best food, food, service , everything. The best restaurant ever!!!!!
This is our go-to restaurant for special occasions. We drive down from Denver. It absolutely worth the drive! The food is fantastic and the staff are top notch! Carlos had rose petals on the walkway into the restaurant for Valentine's Day.
Love this place! I wish I could afford to eat here more often. Everything is well worth the price!
Great experience! The service really steals the show and makes it worth every penny! A great touch that the owner is roaming the floor talking to everyone and helping out! Every time they came to the table they used our names! Also no pressure to for appetizers or dessert! Loved Carlos
Carlos' Bistro is, in my opinion, the best place to go for that special dinner with your wife or girl friend when you want great food , ambiance, and romance. It is also the place to go if all you want is appetizers and desert with friends. Whatever the occasion this is THE place to go.
It’s not just how fabulous the food is or how romantic the environment, or the meticulous attention to details and special touches you experience but the personal attention being treated like family that keeps us coming back. Outstanding as always.
Excellent food. Went at the 4:30 time for great discount. We were welcomed by Carlos. Very hospitable. Waitress took great care of us. Plan to go back soon.
Fantastic experience! Carlos is absolutely wonderful. Service & food is exceptional!
This is hands down the best restaurant in Colorado Springs. It is expensive, but the quality of food is unmatched and absolutely worth it. Carlos personally goes around to each table to take orders or just check in and make sure that your experience was enjoyable.
I can’t speak highly enough on how good this place is.
Excellent food and outstanding service
Always a great meal. Greeted by Carlos as usual, in his friendly way. Food was wonderful. No wonder it is a national destination for food lovers.
Carlos met us at our car, open our doors, and knew us by name. To say we had good customer service doesn’t even come close. We had amazing service and I’m not sure anyone can top Carlos’ friendly demeanor! The food was impeccable. I cannot speak highly enough of the lobster salad (it packed the perfect pop of citrus) and the bone-in pork chop. We were blown away by the food, service and atmosphere.
Expensive? Yes, but the best food in Colorado Springs - or anywhere else for that matter. Carlos is a true gentleman and a genius when it comes to the kitchen. Poblano bisque? Unbelievable, or as Carlos would say, “Beautiful!” See you soon Carlos.
Carlos does not disappoint. His staff was attentive and engaging and each course was prepared perfectly. From appetizer to dessert, everything was absolutely delicious!
Good not great!
We love going to Carlo’s Bistro. Our favorite restaurant. Eating there is an experience. The food is incredible, the service is wonderful and we can see Carlos really cares about his dinners. My 12 year old son loves going there to eat.
There is a reason the food is described as 'beautiful', 'lovely', 'heavenly'. It is! Everything about Carlos' Bistro radiates excellence. I have not had this pleasurable of a dining experience in years. I wanted the food to keep coming. I savored every bite.
Beautiful atmosphere, great service and awesome food. It can be pricey, but there are many items which would allow for a reasonably priced meal. Really enjoyed it and we will return
The meal we had was extremely tasty and well presented. The service is excellent from the moment you find Carlos greeting you in the parking lot to him walking you out the door. Fully and completely personalized service for every aspect of the evening. We were completely pampered.
Always a wonderful experience. Another outstanding job!
Excellent food, service is ALWAYS on point.
I was greeted by name and treated like one of the family. The staff were all very attentive.
I was impressed with my main course, the steak was delicious and perfectly cooked. My $10 salad was a disappointment for the price and I asked for the dressing on the side which was only oil. The biggest disappointment was the bread. It tasted like it had been sitting on the table waiting for several days.
Fabulous! Best of the Springs!
Great experience and great food. Carlos greeted us at the door and wished my wife a happy birthday! Very pricey, but a great place for special occasions.
This restaurant is pricey, but the service and ambience are worth it. When requested, our server took extra time to go through the menu, adding extra description and recommendations; this was extremely helpful. The pork chop with apple reduction was one of the best entrees I have ever tasted. The only reason for four stars on the food was that the calamari steak, ordered as part of a calamari, scallop and pork belly trio appetizer, was too heavily salted. Overall a delightful experience, and we will definitely return for special occasions.
Carlos runs an exceptional restaurant with fantastic staff and incredible food. The menu accommodates many price points, but it is definitely on the higher side. Great choice for special meals.
Carlos Bistro is an amazing restaurant. The ambiance was wonderful for a night celebrating on anniversary. The service was kind, professional and attentive. The food was truly delicious. We had the king crab legs appetizer, fried scallops and tomahawk pork chops. The wine was on point. The dessert was rich and delightful.
We took a friend visiting us from Dallas here. It was also our first time. Wow! We were greeted by Carlos and waited on by Stephanie. Super knowledgeable about the menu and wine. We had cocktails including one that was a house unique cocktail made with gin. Dinner was amazing as we had the Elk, a Filet Minon, and the Duck. We order a suggested bottle of Red Zinfandel. Perfect suggestions. Desert was a creme brulle and port. We had a lovey dinner and enjoyed every dish.
As always, unsurpassed food and service. Carlos is always there with a personal greeting. I can't imagine a better dining experience.
