A neighborhood restaurant, which attracts people from all over Colorado Springs. Can't say enough about the food and service ... both are top notch. My favorites, The Chilean Sea Bass ..or. The New York Strip .... and for the starter, I wouldn't ever pass up the Lobster Bisque. Walter has an extensive wine list for just about all pallets and... More

Walter's Bistro is wonderful restaurant in a strip mall. All the food was fresh, from local ingredients and very tasty. The fennel and arugula salad was fresh and tasty. The Chilean Sea bass, with gnocchi and lobster are a favorite. Exceptional and affordable wine list make Walter's a place I'd like to go back to. The wait staff was friendly... More

Food was very good (though slightly under the caliber that we are used to in Nashville). The lobster bisque was the best thing we had. The crab cakes were very good. My husband had the Bison Steak, oscar-style, which he said was very good. I had scallops over mushroom risotto, which were well-flavored if not perfectly cooked. We were greeted... More

We had heard great things about Walter's Bistro from a friend so decided to go there for dinner on Christmas Eve [a special celebration for us]. They had a special, limited menu for the holiday so we can't comment on their regular offerings. The appetizers [Lobster Bisque and Butternut Squash Ravioli in Browned Butter with crisp sage leaves for garnish,... More

Walter and his staff are great. Kudos to Roxanne especially. Bar menu is the way to go. Regular a little pricey for me. Live close by and good neighborhood atmosphere.

Welcomed to this restaurant by the owner, Walter. He personally oversees every aspect of your dining experience. Service was exceptional. One of the diners at our table had a myriad of dietary restrictions and the chef was most accommodating in tweaking his menu to suit a most finicky palate. The lobster bisque was outstanding. Will be back.

I went to this restaurant for a business party of six. First and foremost I want to highlight that the service was prompt, courteous and kept a courteous distance (did not overly hover but kept the table's needs attended to). The food choices which our tables chose steak, fish and vegetable dishes left only pleasant responses. The portion sizes were... More

We had a delicious lunch at Walter's Bistro. The Lobster Bisque was probably the best I have ever had and being from New England where I have had a lot, that is great! I also had the chopped salad with shrimp which was delicious; light wonderful dressing, perfectly cooked shrimp. The three others in my group all had delicious meals... More
