The Rabbit Hole Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I have been living in Colorado Springs for the past year and have generally found the restaurants in the area to be of indifferent quality. A number of friends had recommended The Rabbit Hole as being a place with a lively bar scene and above average food. Ever optimistic, we decided to give it a try.
We were impressed with the decor and the cozy basement location. The bar area lived up to its billing. It looked like a nice place for an after work drink. The "Alice in Wonderland" theme, including some fine murals on the walls are a nice touch.
Unfortunately, the food was a disappointment. The carrot bisque did not have any flavor of carrots. My wife's lamb was bland, lacking in seasoning. My bacon wrapped rabbit meatloaf was overwhelmed by the bacon. The meatloaf could have been comprised of any meat and I would not have known the difference. The carrot cake dessert my wife and I shared was dry and the icing was too thick and sweet. I cannot give the food more than two stars.
Our server was pleasant, but lost track of our dessert order. After a long period she returned and upon realizing that she had forgotten our dessert, she did apologize and our dessert was provided gratis. The apology and the free dessert redeemed the service to the level of three stars.
My wife and I were disappointed since we had heard good things about The Rabbit Hole from friends and had noted the many fine reviews on Open Table.
We do not anticipate returning to The Rabbit Hole and cannot recommend it to others.
We went for dinner and the food was fabulous. The pork taco appetizer was terrific - slaw was crisp, fresh, and perfectly acidic. The pork was moist and beautifully caramelized. The bison short ribs were incredible. And the old fashioned cocktail was generous and satisfying. These people do great work. Go there!
It was a mad house to say the least. Not really in a bad way just really busy and really loud. Make a reservation should you go.
I had the seafood pasta. There was no way I could eat much of it due to the 1/4-1/2 cup of olive oil my food was bathing in. My two guests ordered the NY strips medium rare and they were both served well done. Our server was great. The drinks were good. I ordered a flaming martini. The drink was weak but the marshmallow was delicious soaked in 151.
Don't think I'll return. For the price of the food I felt it should've been cooked to a much higher level. We definitely paid for an experience.
Our bill for three adults, 3 meals, 3 drinks and an appetizer was $145.00 leaving this experience costing a total of $175.00 with tip.
Had a lovely evening at The Rabbit Hole, I've passed it several time and finally took the steps down to the subterranean dining experience. Drinks were great, the food was phenomenal. I had the scallops and they were on par with some of the best I've had, and I've lived on both coasts near great seafood ports. Our server was fantastic, offered great insight to the menu. The only thing I would have to knock The Rabbit Hole for is I feel it's slightly overpriced, just by 10% though. If they could bring prices down a little bit, this would be a go to restaurant for me.
Reservations recommended! Menu is fun and offers a great variety. Service is great. The place could be cleaner (micro suede booth seats are badly stained, restrooms could be cleaner). The food and drinks are fantastic! Ambiance needs some attention--this place is loud! Acoustic dampening on the ceilings would really help.
We loved the atmosphere and the Alice in Wonderland underground decor. The drink menu was original. I had a White Rabbit which is a vanilla vodka and coconut drink topped with a flaming toasted marshmallow. Delicious. The food was amazing. The brussel sprouts appetizer is to die for.
The ambiance was outstanding and the food was great. Service was great. I would recommend the Rabbit Hole to everyone. The nibbles were delicious and had great selection. The main dishes were creative and tasted wonderful as well. The carrot cake was one of the best I had.
I made reservations for my birthday, and we got done with our plans early so we called and asked if we could move our reservation up by an hour, it was no problem!
The service was great, the food was delicious tasting (and looking), and the vibe was incredible!
So happy we went in!
I just moved to the area from San Francisco, a very foodie city, and this restuarant definitely made me feel like I was right back in the big city. The food was delicious and I truly enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant. My mother was in town and we had dinner with two friends. We sat in the back room, it was a lively venue but not so loud that we couldn't hear each other. The main room seemed like it probably could get pretty loud. I would definitely come here again on date or get together with friends.
I took my eleven year old son to The Rabbit Hole and we had a blast! We had to have a quick bite to eat before the play he was in, so the 4pm reservation we had was perfect. We got nibbles off of the happy hour menu and the place was packed by the time we left! Great music, lovely menu selection, and very nice wine list made this visit wonderful. I am going back with my husband (and our son) to celebrate my birthday in two weeks!
My food was great. I got the ribs. However, my boyfriend's steak was overcooked. So much to the point that we sent it back (he ordered it medium). They said it would take no more than 6 minutes for the new steak to cook. We waited 15 minutes for a steak that was brought out almost completely raw; had to of been intentional from the cook because it wasn't cooked more than 30 seconds on each side. I have worked as a cook and you'd have to be extremely feeble-minded to think that second steak was anywhere near medium. We sent it back again. At this point in the meal, our waitress became nonexistent and when we finally received the steak for a third time, I was done eating and we packed it up and left. After the waitress took another 15 minutes to bring us our check. We didn't see her again after that, the manager had to finish checking us out and get us our boxes. No discount was given on the check, shocking. Service was unprofessional. The last thing you do is ignore a table when they have a problem with their food like we did. Disappointed in how things were handled. Our anniversary dinner was ruined.
The food was different than the last time we came, so we were disappointed we weren't able to get some of our faves. The server wasn't very attentive or well experienced (reaching over our plates, giving unwrapped straws with bare hands etc)
The place is so fun and unique, but our first experience was a 5 and this was probably a 2.5 or 3... so I left disappointed.
It was our 41st anniversery and we wanted to try someplace new. The food was absolutely great. The service was great and the prices were very reasonable. We loved the setting and cuisine. Reminded us of something we might find in Europe. Keep up the good work. We will be back with friends!
