Loved the place. Drinks were excellent. Food was really good. My new favorite place downtown.
As a regular we enjoyed it for an evening meal and drinks
Cool spot. If you enjoyed Neuromancer, you’ll get a kick out the drink names.
Had a lovely evening date night with the husband. Nice atmosphere and nice place
Chiba is one of the best hangouts in Colorado Springs. The food is always impressive and fresh. The staff are attentive and engaging. It’s a fun and hip place to eat, drink, and engage with friends.
Loved everything about the place
Definitely a hidden gem, making this our spot.
Chiba is a largely undiscovered gem in the Springs. Having frequented just about every speak easy, classic cocktail lounge, and noteworthy bar in the city, I am confident to say that Chiba remains consistent and quality above the rest.
Great! Very cool place!
Every visit to Chiba bar is the best. The service is outstanding and attentive- the food is unbeatable and the atmosphere is super fun. They serve the best sushi in town and have some bangin specials each week. Their cocktails are out of this world delicious AND super pretty too. I love Michael, Autumn, and the rest of the team there!
Love the vibe of this place. The food and cocktails are simple and well executed and the staff is attentive. They are strictly following CDC guidelines and we felt as safe as we could have asked for in these crazy times. Looking forward to going there again and again.
Always great food, service and the drinks off the menu are fantastic. The ambiance feels like you’re in blade runner, but a nicer blade runner
Cool spot to grab a drink and talk. Good first date type of place. The wait staff was super helpful and knowledgeable. The food was better than expected. I would recommend for sure.
Food was perfect, fresh, and delicious!! Service was prompt and attentive without being overly so. The safety precautions taken for COVID are good and we felt safe. Will eat in again!
Great food..great drinks
If you like cyberpunk, Chiba is absolutely amazing. Great food, awesome drinks, great atmosphere, it’s my favorite bar.
Had a nice dream night. Ordered two of their bowls which turned out delicious. Not to loud just right atmosphere.
It’s challenging enough to have a night out during a pandemic, let alone a birthday party where the number of guests keeps changing and there are still guidelines to adhere to. Michael Carsten and his staff did everything possible to make my birthday celebration in a public space, feel like we were in someone’s home- but with impeccable service! In addition to that, the Rice Bowls to die for, and the cocktails were spot on.
I think I’d like to have my birthday once a week from now on!
Fist time going was not disappointed. Amazing good service help explain what to order. Was a awesome experience.
Cozy Japanese Bistro small bite menu but food was delish and staff was awesome. Very welcoming.
Chiba Bar was phenomenal as always. Amazing food. Amazing Cocktails. And all for an extremely reasonable price.
Tasty rolls and gyoza. Interesting cocktails you won't find elsewhere. Sci-fi themed decor.
I came from Buffalo and the food and service was outstanding! I would recommend this place to anyone!
My bride and I discovered Chiba Bar last winter and have been several times since then. We really enjoy it and have been consistently impressed with all facets of our dining experience. The best two adjectives I can describe it with are: unique and funky (without being weird).
Food: the menu is quite small by modern standards and consists of innovative Asian inspired dishes. Both of us have thoroughly enjoyed the quality of food. The portion size is good but not huge.
Drink: Chiba Bar has a very unique, interesting variety of cocktails. It’s definitely not your run-of-the-mill Bar menu consisting of an Old Fashioned, Margarita, Cosmo and Mule. Instead you’ll find an innovative menu of cocktails, some of which include spirits I’d never heard of. The ones we’ve tried have been outstanding and... get this... very reasonably priced!
Atmosphere: The owners describe the Chiba Bar vibe as Cyberpunk Izakaya (Izakaya is a Japanese strange pub) which is fitting. It’s relatively dark with intimate booths and high tops. There are a couple mirror balls hanging from the ceiling and modern, Japanese-looking graphics on the walls. It’s in the heart of downtown so people watching opportunities are excellent!! It’s not especially quiet but we’ve never had problems carrying on normal volume conversations.
Service: We’ve been very impressed with the service every time we eat there. Friendly, very accommodating, and attentive without being overbearing.
If you’re looking for a large, “safe”, chain restaurant in the suburbs with a five page menu (one of which is titled “For The Kiddos”) then you should probably eat elsewhere. If you enjoy a funky, downtown, Asian/Industrial atmosphere with a limited but interesting menu and inventive cocktails then you really should give Chiba Bar a try.
I had a lot of fun the waiting staff was helpful and their drinks were great. You need a mask when you enter or use the restroom right now but that’s a plus to me.
Go now. Excellent fresh, unique, beautifully prepared food and cocktails. Impeccable service and a totally unique atmosphere in Colorado Springs. One of our favorite places downtown.
Great food, experienced bartenders, fun atmosphere
