The Rabbit Hole Ratings and Reviews

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.

What a fantastic dining experience! Starting from going down the rabbit hole and to our nearly private dining corner this place is a adorable! Our waitress was terrific and patient with us as we had a lot of questions. We had to try the bunny bites which were different. Keep in mind rabbits are lean. The grapefruit/champagne martini was delish so I had two:) We ordered the ribs and seafood pasta dishes and they were both incredible. We wished we hadn't ordered the appetizer as our portions were large. Atmosphere is romantic. Neighborhood is a little seedy/rough. Would have been nice to stroll the area after dinner but we did not feel safe. Definitely worth a visit. This place was recommended to usby our white water rafting guide! Thankful we listened!

The Rabbit Hole makes Cauliflower and Brussel Sprouts delectable and delightfully pleasant! We ordered these two separate appetizers and loved them! My wife and I also split the Scallops entree - it was excellent! We found the Rabbit Hole on Yelp and Trip Adviser. We were pleasantly surprised and satisfied and would recommend this place for a date night or special occasion.

Alice in Wonderland Johnny Depp version art was fabulous. Definitely foodie centric, hipster, downtown spot. Our server was attentive and despite the line out the door didn't rush us - reservations highly recommended. "Drink Me" Cocktail menu was fun and delish; "Eat Me" Entree Menu hit all the groups - suite whatever mood one is in whether it be meat or seafood. Too full for dessert after appetizers and entrees, but the table next to us had a carrot cake to share amongst friends that looked amazing.

Unfortunately the food was just okay. The proteins were good but their risotto was awful. My wife and I had two different kinds and neither were edible. I wish I had sent it back and let them know so they could fix it but we just didn't eat any of it and left. The server never asked how things were so we didn't give any feedback. My fault on that but if the cooks tried their risotto and thought it was good enough to serve I seriously question their skills.

The menu needs updating. I've eaten there many times, and it was great at first, but now it seems mundane and overpriced. The food is decent and the ambience certainly fun - nothing special enough to warrant the prices.

We were seated in the back room annex which did not have the ambience of the main seating area which was very disappointing. Server told us that seating in the main area requires weeks of advanced booking which I found hard to believe.

We truly enjoyed our experience at The Rabbit Hole. Great care has been taken with the Alice in Wonderland theme without overdoing it. Our food was delicious! The only thing that was just ok was the bunny bites. They tasted like tough chicken nuggets. Everything else was delicious. Our cocktails were fun, too. The service was spot on. I would love to eat there again.

I actually had very high expectations for this place due to recommendations. I had a decent experience but it feel way short of what I was expecting. The service and ambiance was great but everything else fell short.
We had the rabbit bites, duck wings for apps. Lamb and short ribs for entrees. The food was okay-good but nothing was what I considered great. Prices were very reasonable so that's a plus. I would recommend this place but to keep your expectations reasonable regarding the foods. None of it will blow you away.
We went to the Rabbit Hole for our 6 year anniversary. I was super excited to go because of all the rave reviews and the food menu you looked unique and delicious, but sadly it disappointed. The food wasn't bad, it just didn't blow me away and it came out cold. I told our server it came out cold and she asked if I wanted them to reheat it. First, don't ask me if I wanted it reheated, just take it away and say you will take care of it. Even if you are just going to pop in the microwave. Secondly, for 20+ a plate I would hope that you would at least give me the illusion that you were remaking it. It was just overall a disappointing experience especially having gone there on a special occasion.

The Rabbit Hole is fun and delicious. I have been here many times with friends and my spouse and not a single time have I been disappointed. My favorite is the Cherry Braised Buffalo Short Ribs. Just saying it makes me want to go immediately.
Unique food options
Very unique "Coloradoesq" menu. People in my party ordered the bacon wrapped rabbit meatloaf, mac and cheese, chicken and dumpling soup and a beet salad and lastly the burger. All of our food was really good. Decent wine by the glass list with many additional options if ordering a bottle. Service was fast and food was very good. We will definitely be back!

The service was good, and the food was better. ( best NY strip I have ever ate). However the overall atmosphere was increadably loud and it was not even that late. 7:00 pm. My suggestion would be to turn down the music in the bar so people don't feel like they have to talk above the music. Or maybe even put up some sound dampening boards the stone walls don't and won't absorbed the noise. This will reduce the over all noise level and allow for a comfortable dining experience. Instead of having to shout across the table.
Just my thoughts.
