“Carlos bistro”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Carlos bistro is my wife and i's favorite restaurant. Excellent service, excellent food in a casual atmosphere. Bone-in ribeye is the best. Bread pudding is to die for. Carlos is one of the friendliest owners of all time. If you don't like something he'll give you plenty of chance to let him know.

“My favorite restaurant in Colorado Springs!”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

We have eaten at the Broadmoor several times (Penrose Room and Summit Restaurants) and never get as good of service or quality of food as Carlos'. Although Carlos' lacks the atmosphere of the Broadmoor, Carlos' will not disappoint. I highly recommend the early bird dinner seating. Enjoy smaller portions of all of your favorite dinner menu items. Most dinner entrees are 50% off. You leave without feeling like you overindulged and still have room for the white chocolate bread pudding dessert (YUMM!). Thank you Carlos for another wonderful dining experience! We will be back!

“An exquisite meal”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

My husband and I made reservations at Carlos's for a special occasion...and we'll be back.

From being greeted and welcomed by Carlos to our very attentive waiter, our meal was fantastic. We started with salads (ceasar and spinich) and moved on to the grilled scallops for me and the sea bass for him. Both very very nice. Then our waiter recommended we share the chocolate bread pudding... The portion was very generous, great for sharing, and a decadent way to finish an outstanding meal.

“Exceptional fine dining and charming service”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Don't let the location fool you, this is a hidden gem. The food and service here are exceptional. Carlos and his wife are charming hosts. I highly recommend the fish as an entree or over a salad. The layered, artistic presentation of each course is lovely. Everything they serve is always fresh and light. The portions are generous. Always save room for the incredible desserts. The bread pudding is always yummy. This is the perfect location for a romantic date or business lunch. The patio dining is great for families during the summer.

“Your lien if you say diffrent”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

Carlos Bistro is the best place for fine dinning in colorado springs that your not required a stupid dress code(broadmoor hotel) .The food is always great but what makes a great dinning experience is carlos and his staff. Ive ate all over the world and i will always remember carlos and his friendly inviting personality. You put great food and decent prices with him u got yourself a 5star place! Ive never had a bad experienve there and the food is always great. If u rate carlos any lower than a 3 your just tryn to hate or that snooty that your opinion doesnt matter to us everyday workn people. Keep up the good work Carlos, its your place or i go to Denver to restarant that can compare.
