The Rabbit Hole Ratings and Reviews
This was the 4th time I had come here and it did not disappoint me or my guests. The food was good and the drinks were great. We had reservations and were seated almost immediately at 7:30. My only complaint really, and this happens everything I go, we sit for 10-15 mins bf a server ever comes over. But, you look around and there is always waitstaff chatting amongst themselves. But, one our server came over, she was great. We did order the butcher block was is great if you aren’t sure what to order, it would be nice if plates ( med sized) came with it. We had to ask for them and it took a good 10 mins, so we just used our dirty salad plates that were still on our table. But, other than that, we had a great night. Will def be back.
The uniqueness of the food selection is quite nice. I only ordered the chicken and dumpling soup this time due to recent dental work. The soup was too salty and the dumplings were doughy. However, I have shared the chef's board with my husband and it was remarkable.
I was disappointed with our experience at the Rabbit Hole. I had heard that the food was great, but I found it was only average. Although we were seated at a table away from the very crowded bar area, the table was located underneath the entry stairs and was drafty. Every time someone opened the door to enter or leave (which was often) the cold poured down. Our waitress was wonderful, efficient and kind. She provided us with a heater, which helped considerably. We were there on a weekday evening, so I was surprised by the large crowd. If you are planning on dinner rather than appetizers and drinks I recommend that you make a reservation.
Asked for a nice table for my boos birthday and we got a very lovely table tucked away. I️ can’t recall our servers name but she was delightful. Gave us our space but very sweet and attentive.
The Rabbit Hole is always a solid go to for a nice night out. ❤️
Fantastic experience from arrival to cashing out. The lighting level was perfect for an intimate dinner. The noise level allowed for conversation without worry of eavesdropping. The food was fantastic. My boyfriend’s salmon was cooked to perfection. Both our dishes were delicious! The service was attentive and friendly without being overbearing. The Rabbit Hole was definitely a highlight of our trip to Colorado Springs.
Not sure if Wednesday nights is training wheels night it or if the rabbit hole is always this awful - but despite waiting 5 days for a reservation and a lovely night out with friends, hubby and I had a wretched experience. This was uber disappointing since the restaurant itself looks totally amazing - and we had an awesome table tucked back in a niche, isolated from most of the restaurant.
TLDR: phenomenal environment, paltry bartending, mediocre service, and overpriced over glorified food that failed to deliver.
To preface this review - hubby and I both come from a culinary background, with 25 years classic training on his part and almost ten years of high volume food service.
Not going to lie - browsing the online menu filled us with more than a little trepidation. It was ambitious, and promised gastric delights galore! This also meant it set the bar impossibly high, which left tons of pain in falling.
The appetizers were painful - a charcuterie plate that was ice cold - not room temperature - each piece of meat and cheese a different size and thickness, paired with massive crackers so bubbly and rippled nothing could be piled on them. The mussels were amazing - although some weren't opened - the cream sauce was too rich and not a complimentary flavor to the delicate seafood.
Hubby ordered the scallops - another travesty of butchered seafood; scallops seared only on one side because they were too small to be cooked correctly without disappearing completely. Drizzled with balsamic reduction, they spent enough time waiting under a lamp to be completely inedible. And pumpkin risotto? Undercooked rice seasoned with Starbucks pumpkin spice and Libby canned pumpkin would be a better description.
My chicken n biscuit was decent - but completely un-seasoned, lacking the basic fundamentals of salt and pepper. Unfortunately, my...
Utterly disappointed and won't ever be back - the price point is not scaled appropriately to the level of the kitchen's ability.
Always a pleasure. I bring every single family member of friends that comes to visit to the rabbit hole. Every time the service is superb and the food is always So good. Very unique menu and a very long drink menu with plenty of tasty options. I also work for Hilton and recommend to guests Amon a daily basis.
The ambience is really interesting, the decor is really fun. The food is interesting and tasty. We had bunny bites as an app. My fiancee had the seared scallops, I had rabbit meatloaf. The cocktails were great. Be prepared for a short wait and delays at the table if you go during the 6-9pm dinner rush. The waitstaff was lovely and helpful, but the place was packed!
Food and drinks were great! I had the Chicken and Bisquit and would recommend to anyone who loves fried chicken. I also enjoyed a Mad Hatter - expensive but a larger drink than normal. My boyfriend had a burger and sweet potato fries, he enjoyed both! The food came out fairly fast and not. The atmosphere was nice; low light with just the right amount of sound. The waitress we had was rude and unfriendly. She was unhelp when we asked questions and wasn't attentive.
Promptly seated. Kaley was an awesome server! Ordered a traditional mojito (had to have a second) and a La Creme Chardonnay--both were good. Appetizers: Brussel Sprouts and Bunny Bites--the poor little bunny tasted so good! The bacon in the sprouts made the dish. Mains: Scallops on risotto with asparagus--oh, so good! Filet Mignon, med rare, with sweet potatoes and asparagus--cooked to perfection! Finished with the German Chocolate cake--shared the huge portion, and it was delish! Highly recommend!
Enter the Rabbit Hole through a unique sidewalk level entrance as you descend the stairway into the warm and eclectic space with Alice in Wonderland themed art and decor. We enjoyed the Bunny Bites (breaded rabbit tenderloin bites w/yummy mustard sauce), Mussels were fantastic and the Spinach Salad wonderful also. There is a great Drink menu as well including a good selection of beer, wine and creative cocktails.
Most everything about our dinner was wonderful, the server was awesome, the atmosphere was very relaxed and fit the feel I believe they were after. It was our 10th anniversary and made a memorable impression. With that said our dinner was 50/50. The beef filet was amazing but the bison was too tough to eat/the flavor was great just inedible. I don't feel this was a fault of the RH but more their supplier.
Seems like the restaurant team wants to know what it wants to be when it grows up. Affordable food, happy hour venue, top end entrees? So many of their offerings are good but only are a tweak or two from being great if they're willing to focus. Be great at serving millennials smoking appetizers with amazing drinks, be great at serving over the top entrees with unusual and challenging ingredients, be great at limiting costs - choose what you're going to be great at, instead of trying to be everything to everyone. Me, my seared scallops were tender and flavored perfectly, but not seared and still wet, and served on a bed of oily Forbidden Rice, while my husband had a wonderful seafood pasta with seafood that was obviously previously frozen. Pick a lane and go there, fearlessly.
We have been many times to the rabbit hole. Our first experience was awesome. (Service and food)
The last two times we ate at rabbit hole the food was great but unfortunately the service left a bad taste in our mouth.
We also went this last time and it was for my birthday and they didn't even acknowledge it.
Very disappointed. We have a lot of visitors and probably will not come back. It's unfortunate because the food and ambience is great. The server had an attitude
This was the second time having dinner at the Rabbit Hole. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and evening. So much that we have made reservations for New Year's Eve with my sorority. I know they will really enjoy the dinner there before we head over to Pike's Peak Center.

This restaurant was recommended by our local Airb&b hosts. My ideal restaurant has warm and dim lighting, a cozy maze of dining rooms with stone walls and amber lamps. This place checked all those boxes. We are also big foodies and have the added challenge of finding tasty vegan dishes for my husband. Again, the Rabbit Hole menu had various creative amd tasty options for us both. Overall, I loved everything about this restaurant and only wish we had one in our city. I highly recommend it.
Everything was fine except I wasn't approached when I watched in. After waiting about 5 mins and being staird down but 4 employees who weren't doing anything just standing there with their hands crossed I was approached by a busy waitress and seated. If it wasn't for her we would have left. She was great unfortually I don't remember her name.
