Springs Orleans Ratings and Reviews
Expected a great deal more out of a restaurant associated with The Mining Exchange. First, wasn't even out of my overcoat or had the chance to sit down at table before server came over and asked if we wanted something to drink/had a chance to look at drink menu. Too fast for me. Had to ASK server if there were any specials==mind you , we were there at 6:15 pm long before the NYE rush was due. Upon ordering crab cake, size small--it flaked incredibly bad, I'm guessing due to very little moisture in it--NO I don't want to eat breading, but don't think I need to sweep it up onto my fork--and it was COLD in the center. Mentioned it to server and was acknowledged--not a big deal--stuff happens. Ordered the catfish---served on a bed of LUKEWARM rice and lucky I asked for tartar sauce otherwise the fish would of had absolutely NO FLAVOR. Keep in mind, lots of open tables so NOT overly busy here. Okay, onto the photo opportunity to capture this SPECIAL night--that didn't work either. It takes more to create a photo than just hold the iphone up and SNAP the photo--apparently our person wasn't aware of that. At this point , we wanted to leave and yes, my partner's pasta under the gorgonzola sauce was LUKEWARM also. In a nutshell, seated at 6:15 pm and home by 7:30 pm--tells you how thrilled we were about entire process. Apparently they don't read their reviews on Facebook because pretty much, this passage, was written on their page. NOT GOING BACK
We went to pre-symphony dinner on New Year's Eve. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Host/Server/Table attendant were all very friendly and efficient. The food was outstanding. The entire restaurant was incredibly loud. We were anticipating an easy-paced dining experience but instead felt rushed, hurried and hustled out. It was too bad we didn't feel like we could relax, enjoy conversation and dine without being kicked out within 45 minutes of sitting down.
I made a reservation through open table weeks ago and when we got there they had no record of the reservation . Since we were early they were able to accommodate us. We were a party of nine and requested separate checks. The waitress was quite reluctant but then agreed. Other than those two issues we all had great meals.
We tried Springs Orleans for our group holiday lunch. There were 6 of us. We made our reservation weeks in advance, but were surprised to find that the place was not full or booked up as expected when we arrived. The food was great. Appetizers - Brie beignet, calamari. Entrees - shrimp & grits, lobster pasta, truffles Mac & cheese, etouffe. Some of us ordered the same thing. For dessert, we shared a sampler and the chocolate bomb. The sampler included banana pudding, breading pudding and beignet. The food was fabulous,! We all enjoyed the food and the restaurant. The chocolate bomb was fantastic if you are a chocolate lover! The only thing is they seemed to be short handed with wait staff. We will definitely go back again!
Great flavors. The lobster trotolle is a memorable dish (superb sauce with exactly the right amount of tarragon), and the etouffee has just the right kick. Be sure to order it with both shrimp and crawfish. In the past, I've had only beignets for dessert, but this time tried the key lime pie. 9 times out of 10 when I order it in a restaurant, it is a disappointment, but this one was excellent. One of my dining partners had the bread pudding (one of those desserts that can be really really bad or really really good), and she loved it.
All of the food was prepared very well, the server was attentive but not intrusive, and the atmosphere was just the right mix of lively but quiet enough to carry on a conversation.
It was a nice restaurant, but the hostess was extremely rude. I was shocked at how we were treated when we first got there. She spent 5 seconds trying to find out reservation, and when she couldn't find it, she told us we "were going to have to leave". THEN....she offered the bar as an option. When I told her I knew she had a reservation, she was a total smartass and said, "here, see for yourself". and I found my name on the list.
She really needs more training. I wish I could remember her name, she was in her mid-twenties and it was on Saturday, November 11th around 7 p.m. Maybe her name was Hannah??
I’ve been to Springs Orleans many times and always it’s been great, until now. We went for breakfast on Saturday with 9:30 AM reservations. When we got there the restaurant was less than half full. We walked up to the buffet and it was completely empty. No eggs, no bacon, some old soggy French toast, no sausages, no potatos, no fruit or granola etc. Maybe a little green chili. Took them 30 minutes to restock. While we were waiting, we ordered coffee which was brought to us cold and a Mamosa which was brought in a chipped glass. We ended up ordering omelettes which were included with the buffet. They were Holiday Inn Express quality omelettes. The waitstaff was apologetic and even comped us one of the Mamosa’s, but blamed the situation on being understaffed and overbooked. Overbooked? Hogwash. There were even fewer people in there by the time we left than when we arrived. In short, very disappointed and quite frankly embarrassed because I had out-of-town family and was trying to showcase Colorado Springs. Won’t be going back again.
Lovely evening. Great ambience. Efficient, professional service.
The food was very good with a nice mix of flavors. My only complaint was that the lobster meat was a bit bland. I blame the source of the meat, not the recipe (which was excellent). I notified the server so the kitchen knows they need to check their supplier.
I was impressed with the gracious service provided to the table next to ours where two young children were treated with full professionalism.
I had the crab cake - which was virtually all crab meat; the lobster tortolle (great recipe, but needed more flavorful lobster meat); and Brie-stuffed beignets, which were excellent.
Great ambience with tasteful decor and a pianist.
We will return!
I rated the food as good given that my dining partner enjoyed his meal quite a bit. Mine, however, was okay. The blackened chicken I received was far more charred than blackened, unfortunately. And the vegetables that were supposed to come with the entree were almost non-existent. So, I'd have to say that my first visit to Springs Orleans was disappointing.
Also, having made a reservation through Open Table over a month in advance, I was disappointed to find that our reserved table was literally right behind the hostess station. It was a special occasion and we had absolutely no privacy and the hostess stand was a distraction during the entire meal. Plenty of lovely tables in the restaurant but, sadly, ours was the worst of them.
Just decided to grab dinner last minute and we were able to get a table no problem. It was pretty busy and our server actually didn’t come to the table for a while. The manager took our order and brought us appetizers.
I always order the Brie beignet and it was amazing as usual. I tried the shrimp Po Boy this time and was not super impressed. The shrimp had a little too much breading and the remelaude sauce was skimpy. I think I will stick to the shrimp and grits next time.
Dessert (pecan tart)was great and I finished it off with a nice latte.
We were staying at the hotel, so decided to try this restaurant. Food was very mediocre. Cajun caesar salad unexceptional. I ordered grilled shrimp, not blackened shrimp, and they came out blackened with cajun spices and were unbelievably salty. My husband's salmon was less spicy and salty so we split that. Waiter was kind, and offered to make me something else, but it was late, we had traveled and were tired, and I did not want to wait for another entree. The waiter was kind enough to report this to the manager, who then discounted this entree, and offered a free dessert. We appreciated the waiter's honesty in reporting that we were not satisfied. However, we each had one drink, and he did not offer another, nor check on us during the rest of our meal. While he was kind, he needed more training. I would not return to this restaurant.
