I made reservations for Mother's Day brunch after hearing my mom say she wanted a quiet family brunch. We almost drove by the place before someone pointed out that in this tiny STRIP MALL was Walter's. From what I saw, the restaurant is quite successful, so why not spruce up your part of the building, huh? Other then outside appearance, the food, service, and experience was wonderful. Lobster Bisque, Crab Stuffed Sole, and Chocolate Dipped Cheescake. Simple but absolutely amazing.

Walter's Bistro is by far the best restaurante I have ever dinned at. The food is so amazing and the service is unforgetable. I had the best meal in my life at Walter's. The Chilian Sea Bass is outstanding. My husband and I eat there several times a year and will continue to eat there for as long as they are in business. ( hopefully a very long time)
A lovely little place, a slightly pompous menu and maitre de. We ordered the Salmon and the Paella. When the server dropped off the entrees, he never once returned to check and see how everything was. In fact if he had bothered to stop by or even send someone else over to check I would have informed them at the appropriate time the we were extremely disappointed in the Paella. My Salmon on the extreme other hand was sensational! It came with a gratin potato side that was just exsquisite! I so badly wished that the server would have informed us that the salmon was so amazing compared to the very dismal Paella. It's almost shocking that both those dishes came from the same menu. We just ate and waited, and waited. Finally the maitre de came over and cleared our plates. He asked how everything was and I told him. And informed him that no one had come to check on us at all and if they had we most certainly would have sent that back. I didn't expect anything as we had cleared our plates, however they bought us a dessert. I would absolutely return, and just not recommend the Paella. My other suggestion would be to management...When you seat your servers six and seven tables all at once, you maybe ought to think about lending a helping hand instead of sitting back and watching the boat sink. Our server was very kind, however royaly got his butt kicked.

I visited walter's this last weekend with my family and was blown away. My two children were with us and while walter's doesn't have a children's menu they more than made up for it. We asked for some plain pasta and were told they didn't have any but had some mushroom raviolis, the boys scoffed at that. The waiter came back out from the kitchen and told us the chef himself was back there making fresh pasta to order for my boys, and sure enought it really was handmade and fresh. this was just the beginning as both my husbands bone-in filet was spectactular and my veal cheeks the best meal I can remember. This is an experience we will never forget.

My family was staying at the Broadmoor and when we asked the concierge where to dine they recommended Walter's Bistro. We were suprised they sent us off the property to a competitors restaurant, but now we know why. Without a doubt you will not find a better seafood selection in the middle of the country. I had a chilean sea bass, my wife had grilled scallops, and my son enjoyed halibut. we also indulged in the finest lobster bisque I have ever had, a tuna tartar, and lobster spring rolls and they were outstanding. very pleasent service and a nice casual dining area made this a special treat for us. we will be back.

Let me start by saying this is the city's finest dining establishment, both service and food. I was amazed at the decor, the attentiveness of the staff and blown away by the cuisine. I had a fantastic grilled scallop dish tonight and braised kobe short ribs i will never forget.
One suggestion for a previous reviewer, if you want free food using two for one coupons go to mcdonalds, if you want the best food go to walter's bistro

After reading other reviews on this site I had to try this place, and make no mistake they are right. Walter's is the finest restaurant in colorado springs. My Hat's off to the chef as I had the finest meal I can remeber, an outstanding bone-in filet and my wifes grilled scallops were to die for. Very smooth service and a nice and affordable wine list was pleasing. Save room for dessert as my chocolate lava cake was fantastic.

I spent the week in colorado springs with two friends who have also shared their reviews, and let me tell you this is the best restuarant in the pikes peak region. We had done some research on the what are condidered the best around and we visited all of them. Sencha, Briarhurst, Craftwood, Cliff house, Summit, and the black bear, and not one of those deserves to be in the same sentence as Walter's Bistro. It was no wonder their chef just went to the James Beard House for a dinner. Absolutely Divine in every way.

Thank god for walter's bistro or colorado springs would be a boring town for food. The service is top notch, walter himself so gracious. My drinks were prompt and quite generous, and the best food in the state. Simple, yet perfect. The Bass was the best of my life, and the bisque is to die for! Go, and hurry!

By far the best food in the city of colorado springs. Chef Ryan Blanchard is among the states elite and his resume shows it. There is no comparison to other good restaurants in town, as they are alwys consistent, service is top notch. The new locations is fantastic and yes it is louder because it is always busy, if you want a calm laid back restaurant try the cliff house, biarhurst, or craftwood as they are never busy like this place.

Used to love this place when it was on 8th Street. Went to try out at new location and found disappointment. It is a larger place, noiser, busier and has lost that special something. The food is still great, but nothing you can't get elsewhere. The service we received is another story. Rushed and lacking in quality. Don't expect to have your waters filled, plates cleared or other desired services. Called to talk to manager about displeasure. He didn't really seem to care. Said it was a busy night and the waiter had other tables too. I have a cure for too much business....we won't go again, we'll save our $170 (not including tip) for another restaurant that would welcome our business. Goodbye Walter's, au revoir!
