Highly recommend!

Walter Iser is a first-rate restaurateur. He was hand's on but not intrusive and very helpful with suggestions. The rack of lamb is excellent. A lovely site very close to the Broadmoor where we were staying.

Walter's Bistro is one of our favorite places to dine year after year. As with all things, restaurants change from time to time. Overall, our meal at Walter's was very good. The appetizer and desert were great. We both had the walleye and although my wife thought it was very good I thought that the mushrooms served with the meal... More

Generally, Walter's is reliably good to excellent. The last two visits, within a week of one another, were disappointing. On the most recent visit they were out of mussels, salmon, crab, sparkling water and a Chardonnay (also the prior week) we ordered. On the prior visit, the mussels were absent (in addition to the on-menu chard) and a steak entree... More

Hidden in the Country Club Corners strip mall, you might be tempted to pass this by. Don't! Inside is a quaint, comfortable restaurant that serves great food. I ordered the lobster bisque, salad, and chicken salad on a croissant. All 3 were delicious. The cherry cobbler for dessert wasn't as good, but wasn't horrible. I would have gone back again... More

Saw this listed in our hotel guide.. checked it out. Did not realize it was upscale. Small,a bit noisy. One side is "fine dining" (as described by the waiter) so we ate on the bar side. You can tell is is geared for locals. Food was excellent, but not sure i'd go back.

Found restaurant from listing in hotel. Was glad we tried it. Had the chopped kale salad with salmon. Excellent food and great service. It is fine dining but we sat in bar area.

I have eaten at Walter's Bistro several times when I'm in Colorado Springs. It's my mother-in-law's favorite place. The atmosphere is inviting and the service is excellent. My mother-in-law loves the lobster bisque, Cesar salad, and sandwich combination? The salmon is definitely a favorite, too. We consider dining at Walter's a real treat.

Walter's Bistro was recommended as a great place to have a steak in Colorado Springs. On the outside, it's a restaurant in a strip mall. Walking in, we found ourselves in a wonderful bistro with fantastic service and food. I had the NY Strip which was prepared perfectly. The meal, the wine, the service were all fantastic. A great find... More

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
