Our first time eating at Ambli and it won't be our last. Food was flavorful, creative and well presented. Austin, our server, was fantastic in all areas. Cocktails and desserts were top notch! High end food and atmosphere, but comfortably casual for all 4 of us. We will be back!

About the restaurant
In the beginning there has been one word in Carlos’ Bistro, Beautiful. The excellence and the experience of the best in Colorado Springs. Carlos (Owner, Executive Chef, and Matradee) provides a warm and welcoming experience to all of our customers, making everyone feel special at home and relaxed.

We are proud to now offer Japanese kobe and wagyu steaks plus burgers and kobe sausages made with kobe, wagyu, and prime meats at Carlos' Bistro as the state of Colorado is now a member of the Japanese Kobe Club.

This is our favorite place to eat. Again we celebrated my wife's Birthday and the food and service were perfect. Every meal we have had at Carlos Bistro has been outstanding. Highest quality food, great chef and host (Carlos himself). Drinks were unique and large in size which was exactly what we needed. The prices are a bit pricey but if you know that going in and want a really great meal, this is the place.

First time at Vine & Wheel but not our last. Great service from very friendly staff. We had an excellent bottle of Cabernet and the chef’s choice charcuterie board. V&W has a great selection of meats and cheese to choose from for your board and a very nice wine list. Next time we plan on exploring more of their menu.

Outstanding Mediterranean food. John was our server and when we return to Caspian, we will ask to be seated in his section. He was informative, friendly, prompt, and jovial. Try the baklava. Best we have ever had.

Enjoyed Sunday Brunch which was outstanding. The display of jumbo shrimp, crab claws and oysters on the half shell that greeted us was amazing and unbelievable. On top of it, there were so many other amazing appetizers, entrees, salads and desserts to feast on; many made to order. The made to order Bananas Foster was out of this world: the best ever! Be sure to allow ample time to graze. This experience is meant to be savored. Our service was extraordinary and in keeping with The Broadmoor's 5-star rating. We're so glad we decided to experience this wonderful brunch. It was worth it!
