    The food was amazing I had the Sesame Tuna, and my wife had the chicken. The staff were outstanding and helped make my special dinner (military retirement) one to remember. Our server was Jeff, he was so nice and very attentive, I will def be coming back.

    We hadn’t been to the Famous for quite awhile, long enough for me to kind of forget how great their steaks are. Last night I was served one of the best ribeyes I ever had. It was flavorful, tender and juicy, well prepared and slathered with bone marrow before being served. Make no mistake, I am a steak person having had great steaks at many of the acclaimed steak houses in the country including several unknown supper clubs in Montana, the rib eye at the Famous will stand with any. In addition everything that comes out of the kitchen or over the bar is superior to most as is the service.

    Went there for our Anniversary dinner. We had filet mignon & ribeye steak for side dishes we ordered their fries & creamy spinach. Our server was so pleasant & took care of us very well. We got a free dessert for our anniversary & we were so pleased of the service, food & everything else was great! We definitely recommend!

    My wife and I have lived in Colorado Springs for several years now, but had never eaten at The Famous Steakhouse. We had friends visiting from out of state, and they asked to go to a great steakhouse to eat. Their hotel was very close to the restaurant, so I recommended we should eat at The Famous. That was my big mistake. The steak selection was SHOCKINGLY disappointing. They had a very small selection, and the options they did have were pedestrian. They offered no dry-aged cuts, and no Japanese or Australian Wagyu (A5 or other). I ordered their only off-menu special, a Surf & Turf. The only aspect that was more disappointing than the minuscule portion size of the tenderloin and lobster, was the absolute generic taste of the food. It was not horrible, but it was FAR from fantastic. If I looked in the kitchen and saw my neighbor with his BBQ grill, I would not have been shocked…because it tasted like average to below-average backyard BBQ. The service was fair (not amazing, but also not horrible). The ambience was fair (not amazing, but also not horrible).  Bottom line: The Steakhouse at Flying Horse, Prime 25, Cowboy Star, and McKenzie Chop House all completely CRUSH The Famous Steakhouse!!

    I would rate this restaurant/our dining experience as average. We had an earlier reservation at 5:15 on a Monday. The hostess wasn’t overly friendly but wasn’t rude either, just kind of monotone if that makes sense. The restaurant itself is very clean and well-kept and I love the supper club feel with the ambiance and booths. Our waitress again wasn’t overly friendly but definitely wasn’t rude either but little things like I couldn’t even tell you her name because she didn’t tell it to us and was just very matter of fact with zero small talk at all, which usually you want a server that engages a little. The gentleman that brought our plates out was super awkward as he not only didn’t look very happy but he literally said nothing to us at all until after a couple seconds of awkward silence and I said “thank you” and he asked if we needed anything. The food is middle of the road at best. We ordered a couple cocktails, steaks, a side and dessert each. The loaded baked potato is large enough to share as stated on their menu, but it honestly seems like it came out after just sitting under a hot lamp, which I understand happens at restaurants but for the price tag at this restaurant I’d expect a little better. Both of our steaks were questionably done based on how they were ordered. My husband ordered medium rare and half his steak was more rare than medium rare, and I ordered medium and while the ends of my steak were cooked perfectly, the center was definitely more rare and I actually had to give it to my husband to eat. We did not notify anyone because my husband was fine with his a little more rare and I just gave mine to him because since it was the center of the steak, it would have been awkward to send the steak back half eaten to be fixed; I would expect a higher end steakhouse to be able to cook a steak to order. The best part of the meal were the desserts as they were done perfectly. Not a bad experience just middle of the road to be honest.

    I usually love this place but they sent out a steak to me last night that even my dogs wouldn’t eat. Wagyu that’s so tough and sinewy shouldn’t be called wagyu. Very, very disappointed. Chef should be ashamed.
    Famous Steakhouse - Colorado SpringsResponded on January 27, 2024
    We are sorry to hear about the steak that you were disappointed in. That is an American Wagyu Flat Iron steak, which is a tougher cut of beef than some traditional cuts, such as, Filet, Ribeye, and NY strips. We are always happy to get a cut of meat that is to your liking during your dining experience with us, if there is something that you dislike. Thank you for your feedback and we hope to serve you again in the future.

    We love to celebrate our anniversary at The Famous. Tonight did not disappoint. The sea bass was melt in your mouth delicious and the filet was cooked perfectly medium rare as requested, not to leave out a mention of their awesome baked potatoes. Great wine and cocktails topped off the evening. Brian our server was friendly, engaging, with the right amount of timing between visits to our table. If we ever want a steak out this is first on our list. Thank you to the staff for a great evening, and complimentary desert as well. We will be back!

    Food and ambiance was good. Too noisy for easy conversation is not my definition of energetic. Food was excellent except for the hollandaise on the asparagus which was thick and custard-like instead of warm and creamy. Great people watching and a fun evening out.
