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
