We loved it! Very eclectic atmosphere that makes you feel secluded from the mainstream. The menu changes every night. We had the 4-course option and each one was fantastic. The swordfish was exceptional!
The live music was good, but simply too loud. Made it hard to hear each other.

This is my last try here. Food good and interesting...service is non-existent and horrible. Uninformed staff, super slow, no understanding of quality service and seated in an echo chamber with a large crowd. We could not have a conversation. Had to wait to get our check so we could escape. SOOOOOO disappointed. Very expensive mistake.

This is the third time my wife and I have dined at The Margarita at Pine Creek. This time we were meeting with family members and I suggested Margaritas based on our past experiences there. Everything was as expected: Interesting menu, excellent and friendly wait staff, good food and presentation, reasonably priced drinks and great ambiance. We had five in attendance, three of whom chose the three course dinners and two the four course dinners. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals and my wife and I very much liked ours. Dorothy waited on us and projected enthusiasm and just the right amount of attention. We'll definitely return to Margaritas when we next visit Colorado Springs.

They have 3, 4 and 5 course menus. The waitress was very accommodating in swapping courses if we desired. They had a choice of 4 entrees. Steak, sea bass, chicken and dumplings (for a special price not stated however to anytable near us) and a vegetarian option. The sea bass sauce was not consistant, parts spicy and parts extremely mild. I did not care for sauce on steak but my husband enjoyed it. The two desserts we're outstanding. The two salads above average. Overall would not recommend nor will l go back.

First time visit to this restaurant (we are somewhat new to the area). It's obviously popular with the locals as it got crowded (downstairs where there is live music several nights a week) and the restaurant upstairs was fairly busy. Neat interior and it looks like it has a wonderful summertime patio for dining. Interesting menu - you choose from a 3, 4, or 5 course dinner, not a regular menu. We chose the 4 course and each had different menu items, all were very good. For the entree, my companion had the steak and I had the fish - both were excellent. Really liked the quiet guitar music in the background, made it easy to converse. Definitely will return...would like to try the ala-carte menu downstairs and the summertime outdoor dining. Bit pricey but worth it, we think.

A good restaurant for Colorado Springs! Several of the meals were excellent. It’s not white tabletop type service, but the staff is friendly and accomodating. Not sure it would rate as fine dining, but a nice relaxing atmosphere.

As always, Margarita at Pine Creek delivered a fantastic dining experience. My wife and I went for Easter brunch and could not have been happier with the food, the exceptional service, and the outstanding ambience. We now have a new Easter brunch tradition! I cannot recommend Margarita at Pine Creek highly enough!

We really enjoyed our meal at Margarita at Pine Creek. We didn't realize that the only options on the dinner menu would be 3, 4, or 5-course meals. We chose the 3-course dinner which was delicious and a generous amount of food.

Day after Valentine’s Day celebration with my wife. The ambiance was quiet and intimate on a night with light snow. The service was exceptional and our server was very helpful in explaining the menu and the food preparation. Kinda different from ordering al la cart as the offering was for 3,4 or 5 courses from a fixed selection. Selections were good but limited in scope. Small menu, but well prepared and tasty food. Good wine list. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely return.

Busy night, not enough help, bar was way to slow. Took over 30 minutes to get first drink , which they did comp. Food was great, and the server did the best he could due to the delay in bar service. Go yourself, as we have had a much more enjoyable experience in the past. Thanks for the round of drinks!!!

Been going to the Margarita at Pine Creek for over 30 years. Patty a wonderful friendly host and her chef Erik knows just the right spices to put together to ‘create’ perfect meals. Whenever family comes to town or girlfriends want a great lunch place this is where I take them. The weekday soup and salad with the sesame dressing is WONDERFUL.
This place is also me and my husband’s favorite place to go for our anniversary for romantic aumbience and a meal cooked to perfection. Not loud so you can hear each other talk is also a plus. You feel special and pampered to be there

I recently made a reservation for our 10 year anniversary. I was hoping to be seated at one of their romantic, more intimate tables. Instead, we were seated in the group dining area. We were not thrilled with our table and we were sitting very closely to two groups who were close enough that we could hear their entire conversation. I would have preferred a more romantic table for our anniversary. Some of the wait staff were fantastic and some were not so great. My main entree was cold when it arrived, it still had good flavor, but I'm not a fan of cold food. Overall, the experience was ok and not worth the price. I am disappointed, since my previous experiences were great.

a.We had reservation for 6:00 and it showed the reservation booked for 7:00. So it showed we came in early for our reservation so they seated us by the kitchen area instead of the other side of the dining area. It's like a punishment. The last time we made reservations on OpenTable the same thing happen to us. We got seated by the kitchen because they didn't have record of us having a reservations...so another punishment by seating us by the kitchen area instead of the other side of the dining are.
