Walter�s Bistro offers contemporary fine dining in Colorado Springs. One might not think exquisite seafood could be found so far from the ocean, but this eatery just minutes from downtown pulls it off very well with steamed mussels, salmon fillet and pan seared scallops, just to name a few.

While delicious seafood in the mountains may be a welcome surprise when visiting Walter�s Bistro, there is plenty on the menu for the landlubbers. For example, the power lunch crowd will love the bacon wrapped meatloaf, � pound Wagyu bistro burger and the grilled bistro steak even if the seafood crepes do not tempt them. The dinner menu at Walter�s Bistro includes Colorado white trout, Chilean sea bass, wild mushroom ravioli, smoked duck breast and osso bucco.

First time there. Had heard rave reviews. Frankly, I thought the food was boring. There are foodier places to go in the Springs.

We had a great time at Walter's Bistro. From the welcome from the host to the friendliness of the wait staff Walter's Bistro is a place we will visit again. Food was excellent and atmosphere is nice for a romantic getaway.

Rob, our waiter, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, and also very nice. We are looking forward to trying the bar menu!

Excellent! Walter was a friendly, gracious host. Our Servers, Rob and Kathy were very nice, attentive, professional and knowledgeable. The steak tartare, osso bucco, sea bass and lemon cake were all delicious! The bar area looked very comfortable and the dining room ambience was very pleasant. One of the better meals and service we have had anywhere.

My husband and I ate here for an anniversary dinner. It was good but something didn't quite hit the mark. The ambiance is OK but it's not a high-end, treat yo' self sort of feeling. The first table we were offered was literally right by the kitchen door so we asked for the adjacent booth. A server (not our waitress) offered us a wine list but no menu. It was 7 PM and they seemed slammed by an early bird seating. As it turned out, after those folks left, the dining room didn't fill up. Anyway, we shared the a caesar and the lobster bisque as appetizers. The bisque was nice, very savory. The caesar wasn't anything special. I love anchovies but they didn't stand out. The bread basket was totally uninspired. Two, frozen/then baked, rolls. Our entrees were both solid I had the trout which was perfectly cooked. The skin was crisp and the mousse stuffing melted into the flesh. Veloute sauce was lovely. My husband had the pork belly which he enjoyed but--as it's a rich dish--the portion was pretty small. We shared the creme brûlée for dessert. The topping was perfect...shattered with the spoon. The custard was tasty but not as smooth as I've had before. Anyway, there you have it. Good but not spectacular.

This became a 2 hour dinner...too slow. The scallops were dry. My medium rare steak was very medium. Lobster bisque was still very good. Friend raved about the escargots. Meal would have been longer if we had had dessert. Very very disappointing, because we used to really like Walters.

Love the Lobster Bisque - it is a staple on the menu. Our group 2 fillets and a NY Strip, as well as the Tuna - all delicious! Neighborhood Gem - we like to drop into the bar as well - different menu. This was a birthday celebration - great! Noise level is always a bit high.

Had good potential but my food was cool and my rice uncooked.
