Horrible experience and food. No wonder they went out of business.
Purchased a gift card for my father-in-law for Christmas and later found out they were closing their doors February 5. We barely got a reservation and settled for 4 o’clock dinner on Sunday. They were out of several food items, the appetizers were cold, the waitstaff was inexperienced and flustered by the lack of food available. I understand they are closing and are running their food supplies down. However, had I known they were closing when I went to purchase the gift I would not have done it. It was irresponsible of the owners not to give more notice or put a disclaimer on their website. I wasted $160 on terrible food, and a tip. I would have rather spent my time with my 85 year old father-in-law doing something worthwhile. Hopefully, someone will purchase the Sunbird and turn it into something special. It has so much potential.
So sorry to hear that the Sunbird will be closing 5 Feb 18. We've been going here since early '80's. It's one of the best Sunday brunches in town. We're losing an iconic Colo Spgs restaurant.
The location and view are the best in town. The food was just OK. The service was good but could have been better.
Location was great, but the food was way over cooked.
This was our first time visiting SUNBIRD and we are sad to see it be our last. After hearing the news that this location was closing, we immediately reserved our table and how wonderful that it was my husbands birthday. The location of this restaurant is incredible!! The views are amazing and the food was delicious!! We even had an opportunity to stroll outside on the patio by the fire.
Whatever comes into this location next has big shoes to fill after the memories SUNBIRD has given us.
Excellent all around,Definitely will Return and invite all Friends.
We only saw the waitress once, to take out order. She never came back. Neither did any food. We left after an hour.
We had a very good dining experience with my parents. Paul was very good and he did a great job
The Sunbird used to be an exclusive fine dining restaurant, but has declined over the many years that it has been in business into now being called just a "grill", but it still retains its charm because of its lovely view of Colorado Springs, especially at night. The wait staff is great, as is the food, although they need to work on cleaning the restroom more often, and add some marketing to get people to rediscover the place again. Overall a great experience!
The service was terrible!! We spent $150 on two people to dine and we had to ask another waiter who was not ours for more water and to see a wine list. We didn’t get our glass of wine until half way through our main course. So we just had water through appetizers and salad course. The food was awful. It was cold. Would never go here again. Scenery is beautiful tho. Sad the restaurant can’t meet expectations.
We had NYE dinner at the Sunbird. It was a set menu with enough choices still to pick from. Service was very good and food was good. Cozy, Colorado feel and nice overlook of part of the city.
My husband and I needed somewhere to eat on Christmas day and were delighted
with the choice in foods in the buffet. We had a window seat and a beautiful view.
The help were friendly and helpful. We have been once before so will continue to
go to the Sunbird when we are in town.
Really enjoyed the Christmas brunch. Our waitress was excellent. Food was great.
Wonderful Christmas Buffet. Lots of variety, delicious food & great staff. Thank you for a lovely time.
This is one of the worst dining experiences we've had in several years. The Sunbird has lowered its standards to the point of no return. Cheap gallons of orange juice were on the bar, the bartender was also our waitress, we were seated right in the sun next to a huge broken window, it was a hike through two rooms to get to the buffet, which looked and tasted like it was reheated leftover microwave food, and to top it all off, we had to wait for plates to be brought to the buffet. Whoever is running the place is not even trying. This restaurant used to be one of the go-to places in Colorado Springs. Now it is just a total joke.
Sunday brunch is diverse and abundant. service is always friendly and genuine.
The food was very iffy. The Prime Rib was very bad but the Lamb, Brisket, and Chicken were very good.
Expected a little more in the way of Christmas decorating
The service was exceptional. She was very very good
The dining room was not very busy and the music was up so loud it made it very difficult to talk over. Several of the people with us had hearing aids that were rendered useless because they could not get past the music.
The view is exceptional but it just didn't work out to be the experience we were looking for in a restaurant
Excellent Sunday brunch. Great food variety including shrimp, crab legs & prime rib. Only downside was the server did not clear dirty dishes from table.
Very nice place for a brunch with a group. Yippy can relax and the view is amazing. The food was great and lots of choices. Banana fosters was awesome
