The Rabbit Hole Ratings and Reviews

We had high hopes for The Rabbit Hole based on our friend's suggestion, but ended up with a bad taste in our mouths. We were visiting our friend who lives in Colorado, and she suggested The Rabbit Hole since she was there before and said the food was amazing. We looked at the website and were excited to go, so we made a reservation. We got there and loved the unique setting and we couldn't wait to try the food. Sadly, the food did not live up to the hype. I ordered the Bacon Wrapped Rabbit Meatloaf. What I got was 2 small slices of dry, burnt meatloaf with a the center of my meatloaf cut out and replaced with a huge, raw carrot chunk. The other baby carrots on my plate looked cooked on the outside but instead were raw. All the carrots on our plates were like this and not pleasant to eat, so we left them. The mash on my plate was fine, but the food I ordered was not worth the $17. One of my friends order thr steak medium rare and received a well done steak and burnt in some sections with the wrong mash. My other friend ordered the lamb shank and said it was dry and incredibly fatty and also had the raw carrotss. We were unable to bring this to our waitress because she rarely came by and we could not find her. If the place was busy, I understand this but it was 6pm on a Sunday and it was pretty dead when we were there. We simply paid out bill and left. If I lived in Colorado Springs, I would not suggest eating here but would suggest to go for a drink and check out the space. My friend living in Colorado said that she will most likely not return because of our experience though. It's a shame because we were incredibly excited to check the space out and have an amazing meal, but instead left underwhelmed.

We visited The Rabbit Hole on our first night of a girls weekend in Colorado Springs.
The menu was very interesting with options for all, whether you wanted exotic, ie Rabbit, Buffalo, or whether you wanted seafood, or burgers, chicken or mac and cheese. We all enjoyed seafood; shrimp, scallops, striped bass. All were excellent. Cocktails were great as well. The restaurant is underground and it is beautifully decorated and cozy with lots of cave like nooks for seating. It was something different from the usual and we all enjoyed our evening.

The place is cool enough. A little to find since it's street address is not actually on that street (see for yourself). The drinks and service good but the food was essentially flavorless, very bland. Chef might want to experiment with some spices.

The entrance is a subway-like stairwell in the middle of the sidewalk on Kiowa between Nevada and Tejon. Very original environment, and very dark. No windows. The food was excellent and there was a large list of cocktails, wines and beer. I went there for date night with my wife. It was very loud which is why it only got 4/5 for ambience. I also gave it 3/5 for value because the food was great and priced fairly, but not cheap. Perfect for drinks and laughs with friends, maybe not the place for a quiet night out.

My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. I wish the staff would of been more friendly as we were coming in the door to be seated and explained the AWESOME food choices since it was our first time there!

The menu looked good, but the preparation was meh! It wasn't bad just not what I'm used to. Rabbit Bites were like McNuggets with no flavor and just grain mustard for dipping. Missed opportunity! Brussels sprouts were the best thing. Ahi was a little 'fishy' (I know, but flavor was off) and cooked oddly. Looked like striped bacon. Sauce way too sweet. Lamb shanks were extra spare and very tough. Sauce was good but barely any on the plate. Mashers were not very mashed and again little flavor (here is where more sauce would have helped). It sounds bad, but I would give another try. Staff was great and ambiance was enticing and fun.

After 4 years living in the Springs, we finally got to experience this restaurant. We had tried to come on a whim earlier but you need a reservation. The drinks were creative but not very strong. I got The Dutchess, my husband stuck with a local beer. My chicken that I ordered off the main course menu had a great presentation but lacked in the taste. It was actually a little bland. My husband ordered the prawns that were wrapped in bacon. The bacon was the main meat you tasted. We shared the carrot cake, heard lots about it. It was served with a spoon but better if you ate it with a fork. It was very dense and not the usual cake texture. It was ok. Will we return? Not sure. I thought I would be more excited about this place. I give it a C+

Let's just get to the food...brussel sprout app is a must. Mac & Cheese another must. Salad (arugula) was a bit dry, but tasty. Tenderloin burger...very good...bun was a distraction. Colorado Mash...yummy. Wine list is spartan, but appropriate for the venue/menu. Christa was excellent...was very willing to make recommendations on the stuff that she liked alot. We will go back.

I can't remember the name of our waitress but she was awesome! Very nice and friendly! I was visiting from out of town and it was definitely my first time there! It was also my boyfriends first time there! Food was amazing but the best part was the desserts! Carrot cake was to die for!

Great idea on paper that fails to translate. Really too bad since it's one of the more interesting venues in Colorado Springs (e.g., former morgue with ghosts & a great story). Suggest a complete menu/kitchen overhaul (why is there no cake that says "Eat Me"?). Stick to the drinks at the bar for now

It is highly recommended that you make a reservation here. The novelty of the Alice in Wonderland theme, and the fact that the door to the restaurant just appears suddenly in the sidewalk are what attracted me to this place. The food was excellent, however, I was disappointed that they did not have a regular iced tea available and the raspberry iced tea they did have was like sugar water with raspberry flavor added. I would have preferred an unsweetened non-alcoholic option.
My only other small gripe would be that in such an awesomely decorated and themed restaurant, I thought that would carry over to the restrooms, and they were dismally dated, not all that clean, and certainly not decorated to encompass the rest of the whimsical atmosphere!

Everything about this place was unique and different, I love the food I love the ambiance. The only thing I would say is not kid-friendly it's more of an adult setting. Our waitress was a different story, it seemed to take forever for us to get anything ordered and she seemed pretty annoyed at the fact that we actually had kids at our table I don't think once she even smiled. Other than the one waitress everybody else was pretty nice and friendly hope to go here again soon.

Fantastic restaurant! My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here last night and are so glad we chose the Rabbit Hole. First the atmosphere is cute, quaint and cozy. The food is delicious and there is something for everyone. The service was excellent! We will be back!

This unique and creative Wonderland - esque restaurant is a delightful escape. The themed cocktail menu is a standout feature, and the menu offers creative fare. Reservations are a good idea since this place, like its namesake, is always hopping.

There where many items we would like to have tried due to the menu offering many fun items. The scallop entree and stripped bass entree where well prepared. The only item that needs tweaking would be the overdressed caprese salad.

Good experience overall. Food was tasty and well prepared. Only negatives were that the balsamic vinaigrette was more like a highly acidic red wine vinaigrette, completely devoid of the sweetness of a true balsamic, and our server was not terribly personable. She did a fine job of keeping drinks filled and checking in, but we had to actually tell her to wait a couple of times as we were trying to order additional items and she just brought something and was leaving as the item hit the table. Like she was trying to get us out as quickly as possible, but we were there for a nice dinner, and ordered drinks, apps, entrees and dessert...hardly the ticket you want to hustle along. Good food and ambiance. Music could be quieter.

Wanted to enjoy a dinner in the downtown area of Colorado Springs. One of the bellmen at the Broadmoor highly recommended the Rabbit Hole. My wife really enjoyed the Peach Champagne drinks. The spare ribs were excellent.

Felt the food could have been a bit better given the prices but overall it was nice. The bunny bites were rather tough and a bit over cooked. Service was attentive but not particularly friendly. Loved the decor and general feel of the location. Meals came out quickly although didn't have time to finish appetizer first.

Every time me and my husband go to The Rabbit Hole, we are never disappointed. This time we ordered the risotto balls for appetizer and they were amazing. We both ordered the buffalo ribs; it's our favorite dish. It was delicious, and there was no room for desert. Great place for date night!

Found previous reviews on yelp interesting. Decided to try this place out during a business trip to Colorado Springs apparently it used to be the town morgue back in the 1800s. Walking down to the restaurant the smell isn't very pleasant and the ambience when you first enter pretty drab however I was pleasantly pleased with the wine choices as well as the meal.
