We opted for no drinks due to a very early business meeting. Neither one of us could recollect a time that our wine tab didn't match or exceed the food lol. From the moment we ordered sparkling water we felt a little rushed for various reasons. Perhaps it was simply about turning the table on a busy Friday night -... More

Very disappointed with the steak here. If you're going to put steakhouse in the name of your restaurant, then know how to cook a steak. 4 of us asked for steak at our meal and 3 of them were wrongly cooked - and not just a little. Me and a friend asked for medium/rare and both got medium/well, which was... More

This place is a bit expensive, however the food was well worth it! The filet mignon was cooked perfectly (medium) and melted in your mouth. The salmon was amazing also! So tender and fresh! The bread and Cesar salad was also to die for. I'd go back!

My husband and I went to The Famous for our 20th wedding anniversary. We had an early reservation since we were going to an event at the Pikes Peak Center. First, a rather unfriendly hostess took us to a booth in the very noisy bar. When we asked for another booth, she put us in a very small booth with... More

While the prices were certainly on the high end, the portions were generous, and every part of our meal was excellent! The staff was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was great for our anniversary dinner.

The Famous Steak House has long been our go-to place for special days. We loved the ambiance, the menu, the wait staff...it was the whole package. Our recent visit was grossly disappointing and maybe our last. It was a Sunday evening and our first clue should have been the extended wait just to get water. It took forever to get... More

Just had the BEST lobster tail and lobster corn dogs Colorado and this country has to offer. Thank you to the chef- Brian. Lived in Boston area for over 30 years and like the many great steak /seafood restaurants there, The Famous nailed it here today. Yes, everyone already knows the steaks are delish but wait until you try the... More

The menu was comprehensive for lunch and I very much enjoyed the Chicken Oscar. My colleagues had equally enjoyable meals and the service was great. Central to downtown Colorado Springs and highly recommended.

At a certain age (HINT: over 65), you begin to see some things as they used to be. And The Famous brought us right back to the age when fine dining was the rule, not the exception. Yes, it's a bit expensive, but you get what you pay for. At The Famous, you get superb meals - especially the steaks... More
