I celebrated my boyfriend's 58th birthday at Carlos' Bistro. I was looking for something exceptional, memorable, and romantic. Carlos' Bistro delivered on EVERY level, and more. The ribeye steak and jumbo sea scallops we ordered were mouthwatering and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was both romantic and energetic. Carlos' personal greeting (outside in the parking lot) added to the level of detail this restaurant takes to give you an experience, not just a meal. We will definitely return to Carlos' Bistro!

Carlos bistro is a gem in a city that does not have very many truly gourmet eating experiences available. A must visit for the foodies out there.

Had the Chicken Carbonara && the Lamb Chops, both of us loved our meal, to die for! Service was the best I’ve ever gotten.
Asked if my dog could join us for dinner on the patio && they said as long as he’s good && doesn’t bark etc.. well when we arrived our table was ready && they brought out a tray of iced water that they placed over a towel on the floor for my dog. We will definitely be going back to visit this place regularly 🖤 It was overall PHENOMENAL!

Carlo's Bistro is deserving of all the praise and recognition it receives. Colorado Springs should be very proud of this restaurant and restauranteur. The menu is delicious from appetizers through desserts. The interior only gets better and better. We have been going for years for our special occasions and it never ever disappoints!

From the time Carlos met us as we arrived and saw us to the door as we departed, he and his staff treated us with such kindness and hospitality. He doesn’t overlook anything while you are dining with him. The quality of food and service is top notch in every way! I can’t think of a better place to celebrate a special occasion.

Thank you Carlos - we had a fantastic experience end enjoyed every little thing.

Carlos’ Bistro is amazing. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and everything was fantastic from start to finish. Carlos makes sure everyone feels welcome and is happy throughout the meal. The food and service are incredible (Stephanie was our waitress on this visit.) A MUST try for any special occasion or just to be pampered. We feel that this restaurant far surpasses the Broadmoor for food and service. Carlos’ Bistro also offers special early bird prices. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

We've only been twice, but Carlos is like an old friend with superior culinary skills. Both times (once in a snowstorm!) he was out in the parking lot and greeted us as we drove in. The owner! The craft cocktail menu is expansive and by the time the waiter takes your order you're nice and relaxed and happy. The food is always, ALWAYS great. There's nothing like it in Colorado Springs (unless I haven't found it yet). Very inventive dishes, the ingredients are fresh. If he suggests a dish (and he will) go with it. You will not be disappointed. Had lamb shanks (special) - to die for, and the lomo saltado - also to die for. I can't say enough good things about the place, from the food to the staff. Small downside is the expense, but so worth the change.

The food is fab! Best in town if not the state. Cerviche was best I’ve ever had. The lamb chops were great! Craft cocktails galore and an extensive wine list. Yes it’s expensive but you’re not going to find better. Carlos is a great host, very responsive and the wait staff was phenomenal. We will DEFINITELY be back.

Very good food, not cost effective. Service was very good and parking access easy. I was expecting the steak to be much better quality and was disappointed in the somewhat tough tenderness. The lobster salad was the best ever but could not make up for the poor steak.

Carlos' Bistro is by far the best place in town, bar none. Food was over the top good. We had King Crab Legs for dinner appetizer, Seared Junbo Sea Scallops and Crab Alfredo for dinner. SO SO good. Then topped off with Crème Brulee. OMG, if you haven't gone treat yourself to a special night out and pay Carlos a visit!!!
