                Great food...one of the top three places we’ve eaten in COS. Good service. Other than the hostess seemingly not wanting to be there, it was a superb experience.

                Been coming here for more than 10 years and are never disappointed! Food is amazing, staff are super friendly and prices aren’t too bad for what you get. The only downside is that the dining area is so small it can get a bit loud.

                Service was great as is your restaurant. I always love coming here and bringing a guest. My only complaint was in my guests dinner, she did not realize it was going to be such a large breaded sandwich . It would have been better with sliced bread or open faced. She enjoyed her soup very much and my salmon salad was very good.

                This place is a gem. Fun adobe style w/ lots of small rooms so it doesn't get loud. Have been here several times for lunch. This time had ham/lentil soup, fish tacos, sesame chix salad (huge) and coconut cake (very fresh). All were perfect! In the summer they have a great patio as well.

                Simon was fairly brusque as a server. No nonsense, no personality. We felt like he was in a hurry to get us out of there, no time for socializing, either with us or allowing us to enjoy ourselves. Food was delicious and accommodating for someone who needs to be gluten free. Dress warmly; the place was freezing, and asking Simon to turn up the heat a little had no effect.

                Always friendly, professional service. The menu regularly changes so nothing is overserved...and they use what's in season, so it's a new dining experience each visit!

                Enjoyed our food and the service was great. The table was old and discolored, so it looks dirty even though it’s not. We have eaten here a few times over the years and the food is always excellent.

                Food was great. Menu was explained to us thoroughly. Service could be improved. Felt rushed to order. Waitress was too casual for fine dining and continued to be rushed and unrefined.

                Had a beautiful day to dine outside for lunch. Tried new dishes and found the food incredible. Server was very attractive and helpful. Manager stopped by the table to make sure everything was great. Very inventive menu items. Seasonal local ingredients used to perfection. We’ve always enjoyed dining inside for dinner, but enjoy the outdoor dinning for lunch. Good value for meals. Love this unique dining experience.

                The Margarita At Pine Creek is the perfect place for consistently good food (healthy, fresh, ample selections even for those of us with specific food sensitivities) and quiet enough to hear one another talk. My special girlfriends and I always choose The Margarita for our rendezvous lunch. There is never a question that it will be memorable in every way.
