The Rabbit Hole Ratings and Reviews
Great dining experience at a hole in the sidewalk
The Rabbit Hole is a fun, very yummy place for a date, friends or family get together. The underground atmosphere makes the Wonderland menu come alive. Great drinks.

We were seated as soon as we got there but did not get a menu until 20 minutes later. Other than that the food was great.
Love this place but service is key
Laura was not a great waitress. Been here several times and had much better service. She disappeared for 20 minutes and we were left waiting for drinks and our meal when other guest were receiving their meals much quicker than us. Love the food here and atmosphere. Lobster Mac & cheese, filet, short ribs, Lucy juicy burger, rabbit bits, and pork wings highly recommended! Cross your fingers for a great waitress.
Loved the environment. Not kid friendly. But the food was great and the environment made me feel awesome!
My third visit
The first time I dined at the Rabbit Hole was wonderful. Great food, good service and a very unique atmosphere. The second time I also received good service but the food was not quite as good. The third time I noticed right away that service was lacking. Though the place wasn't that busy, the waitress was in such a hurry trying to get away from us. That when she asked only one of us what we wanted to drink and was gone before my wife and daughter had a chance to speak. This seemed to be a common trait for that dinning experience. Every time she would check on our table it was like she didn't have or want to take the time to hear our requests. At the end of our meal she asked how everything was and if we needed anything else. My wife stated that to go boxes would be nice. My wife then started to say dessert would also be good, but before she could finish her sentence the waitress was gone once again. When the waitress did come back with the boxes my wife ordered two pieces of carrot cake to go. Bring us the bill and what we thought was the last of our order. I paid the bill and against my first instinct I left a 10 percent tip. It wasn't till after arriving home when we realized we only got one slice of cake. Being that our first experience was so wonderful, I am hoping that last one was just an off night. Though I am not sure if or when we may return.

Great spot for a date amazing food and drinks
Very enjoyable experience
Took friends from out of town for dinner. The experience was very enjoyable and the menu is a delightfully fun experience. I had the rabbit meatloaf and was more than happy with it. A lot of times game food like that is dry but it was very juicy and tender. Also enjoyed at the table was the spare ribs (delicious and very well seasoned) and the chicken (moist but not as much flavor as we thought there would be). The environment is fun and whimsical but is more like a bar than a restaurant.

Went there before a concert, great date night place. Cool, relaxed, funky atmosphere. Great food and service. I can see this not being everyone's cup of tea, but we loved it and definitely will be back.
The food was absolutely amazing, but it was quite busy considering it was prom season but our waitress did a good job in getting her job done.
2 for 2
The Rabbit Hole was awesome, just as it had been the one other time I have been. My friend and I both enjoyed that there was nothing mundane on the menu. It was my dates first time at the Rabbit Hole, and he plans to return until he's tried every item on the menu. Thanks for a great night out!
menu looked great, but food was poorly executed.
Very loud setting, we couldn't really talk to eachother and the food was dissapointing.
Although I enjoy the ambiance, the food ...
Although I enjoy the ambiance, the food and drink were not quite what I had hoped for. The majority of the drinks on the menu seem very sweet. And the food items of choice, though novel, were average.
We went to the Rabbit Hole for my birthday and it was great! The food and cocktail options were great. I got their Signature cocktail, the White Rabbit, which was topped with a flaming marshmallow. For food, the seafood pasta was cooked perfectly, although it could have used a little...."more flavor". It was a little bland, but nothing I couldn't easily just ignore. My boyfriend got the burger and it was very good, cooked right, and made like he asked. The only part of the night that was lacking was service. This was a Wednesday night. Our server came to the table multiple times to get our order and we weren't quite ready (indecisive people to the max). However, once we got our food, I think we only saw the food runner who dropped off the food and our server maybe once after that. When the food runner dropped off the food, we asked for a couple things, needing it to eat our food. After waiting 15 minutes with not one employee coming back, we just decided to go ahead and eat it because we were so hungry. That kind of ruined it. Never getting any of the "guest requests" that we asked for, by the time our server came by to drop the bill, it was even far too late to ask her. Overall, I'm not going to complain, the food was good, drinks were good, the place itself is AWESOME. A great little find. I just hope the service was just having a bad night. I would still recommend it and will try again!:)
Outstanding in all regards.

Great spot for drinks and social.
Great cool spot for drinks and social. They know how to make a martini! I have been there twice now and the food is sub par. I will still go back though.
The atmosphere says it all here. An Alice in Wonderland-themed restaurant with decor and menu to match. I will be going down the rabbit hole again very soon.
A wonderful birthday
I went with my boyfriend to the rabbit hole for my birthday, and it was wonderful! I recommend the Dutchess, pork"wings", and the rabbit meatloaf!
DELICIOUS FOOD! Great atmosphere!
Well seasoned food combinations I had the bacon wrapped, chorizo stuffed shrimp with cheesey grits and green beans. The bacon was perfectly crisp unlike most wrapped foods I've had before. The grits had excellent flavor. I wanted more. My friend had the filet and it was the most tender, juicy, and flavorful filet I have had. Extensive wine list. White Rabbit Martini is a MUST TRY, flaming marshmallow and all! Atmosphere is unique and intimate. Perfect for romantic dining or special occasions. You really feel like you're down in an elegant rabbit hole. We loved the play on words from Alice in Wonderland such as the "Drink Me" title for their drink list. My favorite restaurant!
A nice place to celebrate special occasions
Had a good dinner with my husband, food is good, nice ambiance. The only negative I can say is we felt rushed. If I am dining I do not like service personnel cleaning up our table while the other diner is still eating.

We had a great experience on our 20th anniversary! The service, food, and staff were awesome and Matt was exceptional on making sure that we had a pleasant evening! We will be back for sure! VERY impressed!
GREAT FOOD & FANTASTIC SERVICE!!!
Our server, Krista, was attentive, prompt, and ACCURATELY described the flavors to expect for both the entrees and desserts we ordered. I was extremely impressed; this is the FIRST time I have a server's description deliver 100%. This is now our new favorite restaurant!! I have already booked next reservation. ALSO, I am so glad I made reservations. It was extremely busy. I cannot wait to go back!
A wonderful spot!
It was our first time here. The atmosphere is unique and awesome! I loved going down the stairs to get to the actual restaurant. The decor is great and the food and drinks are even better! The duck wings and escargot were phenomenal and the carrot cake was as delicious as it was HUGE!

Maybe some people would think it "fun" or "unique" to be seated at a half table located at the base of a stairwell directly facing another group of diners, and where every person ascending or descending the stairs of the restaurant can and does look down on you (literally and figuratively) as you dine, but I don't. This ridiculous seating arrangement was all that was offered to us, ruined our experience here and left us with a bad impression of what may be an OK, albeit definitely over priced restaurant.
The Rabbit Hole is a hidden gem with amazing food. I made a reservation for 10:30 pm on Valentine's Day. We were running late after a concert was let out and arrived at 11pm. The hostess was more than accommodating to us. We were seated right away. After telling her we were first time diners, she made recommendations on the menu and drinks. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was romantic and comfortable. I give this restaurant, staff and atmosphere 5 stars! We will definitely return.
Great Casual Downtown Restaurant
We came here for dinner but the bar appeared to be much more of the draw for this place. The food and service were good but it wasn't quite what we were expecting for celebrating a special event.
Brought our 11-year old!
Husband, daughter and I dined here for Valentine's Day and we had a great time. True, she was the only kiddo there at the time, but she enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. She ordered a Shirley Temple (to make her feel a bit more grown-up) and my husband and I still had a romantic evening with our daughter in tow. Great food and great drink selection for everyone. Recommend the butterscotch cheesecake and the seafood noodles. Highly recommended! Not for the claustrophobic or someone who needs to see out a window. (There is an area by the entrance that is surrounded by glass that you might request in order to still enjoy this great place. Also, not exactly off Tejon, the entrance can be found off Kiowa.

The drinks here are superior! We've tried the honey-do and the champagne cocktails - I recommend all of them! Food was great too... We really enjoyed the curry cauliflower and the dip sauce to that is sent straight from heaven. I ordered the filet, which was perfection, and the sweet potato mash was delicious; I subbed the asparagus for string beans (just not an asparagus fan) and it was all really tasty. My only complaint is that I missed the mushroom onion ravioli.
Chef can accommodate anyone and it tastes awesome
Our supper was so good. We had one with garlic powder allergy, one lactose intolerant, and one willing to hang out with us. The Brussel sprout appetizer is to die for. We had minestrone soup (huge bowl of the tastiest homemade mix of lots of different veggies), the tuna supper with bok choy was very tasty and no lactose, the filet with sides that had no garlic powder was perfect, and the waitress made us feel welcome with all our allergy issues. We will be back. The underground restaurant is great and lots of fun.
A must in Colorado Springs
My 2nd visit was as good as the first. The food is inventive and tasty, the service was fantastic and the atmosphere is one of a kind.
Very unique restaurant. Loved the feeling of being in a rabbit warren once you start walking around. The food was good - had the brussel sprouts and the risotto balls for appetizers and a salad for dinner. We were there for happy hour which is half price drinks on some items. Very wide choice of specialty cocktails. Will definitely go again.
We went there for a birthday celebration. It was perfect. I am glad we made reservations because very busy that night
Excellent, Unique restaurant
Very unique place - they really follow through on the Alice in Wonderland theme. The decor is nice, and the references to 'Alice' really make for some nice conversation. Being vegetarian, I always appreciate finding nice choices on the menu. The Cauliflower appetizer was excellent, as was the Carrot Risotto/Mushroom entree. The Carrot cake was only mediocre this time around - not moist enough and the icing didn't seem to have the right texture. Do keep in mind that they're VERY generous on their desert portions. So, perhaps just missing perfection, I'll still be back the next time I'm in Colorado Springs.
Good food ok service
I had the spinach salad that was served with roasted peaches. I bit into a peach slice and there was still some pit left. I informed the server and her reply was " at least you know it's a real peach". I found that to be a poor response. Rabbit meatloaf was good and White Rabbit Martini was fantastic.
Excellent food presentation and unique menu
Our group of four ordered four different entrees and each was prepared very well. The tenderloin, bass and ahi tuna were especially good as far as flavor and quality. We appreciated the unique food choices on the menu. Although our server did not have a lot to say, she was as attentive as she needed to be and the drinks and food were served promptly. The drinks are also unique and special (somewhat expensive for what you get) although beer and wine prices are very reasonable. We've been here before but have only had dinner one other time and have wanted to come back again to try more items on the menu. We'd recommend this restaurant for its unique location, menu and tasty food.
excellent service but unexpectedly poor food
My wife and I have dined at Rabbit Hole several times now over the course of the last year - the ambiance is perfect for a date night away from the kids and the food has always been good (if on the expensive side). This last visit, however, was very disappointing. Service was, as always, excellent but the food (lamb shanks and short ribs) was poorly prepared with needle like shards of bone throughout the meat. The short ribs tasted more like a dry, salty pot roast than anything else, and the waffle fries (ordered as an appetizer) were limp and oily. Desserts were excellent and the wait staff was very friendly. Still, it will be some time before we return.
One of the best in the springs
2nd visit and everything was wonderful again! it may not be for those with unadventurous taste buds.
