Had a wonderful meal. The building’s appearance doesn’t come close to representing the quality inside. Great food. Very interesting preparations. Excellent wine and liquor selections. Carlos is a very interesting gentleman and businessman. We’ll be back every chance we get.

Carlos Bistro is the place for celebrations or just dinner out. The food and service is impeccable. So many choices and everything we have tried is wonderful, from steak to pasta to seafood.

Sevice was amazing. The owner greeted us in the parking lot. Drinks were made and modified to our taste. Food was awesome. It us handicapped accessable. We were a group of 7 and they increased the size of our table to give us additional space. Highly recommend.

This is the place for a truly fine dining experience. The owner greeted us in the parking lot and checked on us often througout the meal. Our waitress checked on us often as well, and she refreshed our hot tea whenever we wanted more. The atmosphere was intimate, cozy, and welcoming. It felt fancy but not pretentious. I got the crab cake appetizer, and it was the best crab cake I'd ever had; my husband got the fried calamari, which was lightly battered and tender. For our entrees, I had the Colorado lamb chops, and my husband got a 6-oz venison chop. All were excellent; it is obvious that the chef puts great care into each dish. The experience was worth every penny.

Amazing food!! Every area was remarkable!! Don't let the outside scare you. The owner/chef was the perfect host. The lobster appetizer was amazing!! My seafood entree was the best I've had since moving to Colorado from Philadelphia. Expensive and Worth it!!

Every time we visit Carlos' Bistro it is a delight. Carlos, as always, is there to greet and escort you as you come into the restaurant. We take advantage of the early dining as it gives you the opportunity to eat at a wonderful restaurant but taking advantage of the reduced prices. The entree items in most cases are smaller in size, but huge in flavor. Our server Jennifer puts you at ease as soon as you are seated. I'm sure we would love the other servers as well, but we have always requested Jennifer as she is so friendly, knowledgeable and witty. One other reason we like the early dining is that it is quiet and cozy. We brought our thirty-ish sons this last time as they had heard so many great things about the restaurant. They were not disappointed! Thank you Carlos for making us always feel welcome and providing such an excellent meal!

Found this little Gem via this site for my wife's birthday dinner out while visiting Colorado Springs. We were greeted by Carlos himself at the front door with a huge smile and warm personality. The first thing we notice walking in the door was the amazing aromas from the kitchen. Prompt and personal service (everyone knew our first names), incredible menu and the food lived up to all of the prior reviews and then some. We are foodies and have high expectations of a good meal out, this establishment didn't disappoint! A tad pricey, but in the end, worth every penny in our opinion. We'll definitely be back.

Food and service are outstanding, and the owner's personal attention adds much to the experience, but you pay a lot for that. The menu items are ultra expensive and the wine list prices are obscene.

Probably the 2d best restaurant in the Springs only behind The Captain's Table in the Penrose Room at the Broadmoor. VERY pricey ($30 to well over $100 entre, but worth it. Everything is absolutely top notch from greeting to service to quality to ambiance. Carlos does a great job and adds a very personal touch.

The special service begins in the parking lot when Carlos personally comes out to greet each guest, welcoming you to the restaurant. The food, the wait-staff service, the ambiance...from start to finish this place is a class act. Best restaurant hands down that we've been to in the Springs, and frankly, one of the best restaurants we've been to overall in all our travels.
