Carlos’ Bistro is that rare gem which once found, you will want to return. Be it only a visit for a special occasion or more regularly. Regardless of your frequency, Carlos greets you as a welcome visitor and truly appreciates your visit.
Carlos’ Bistro is in a non-descript building but after he greets you in the parking lot, heartily shakes your hand and welcomes you through the front door, you’re taken into what is going to be the most incredible dining experience in Colorado. From the exception quality of the menu items to the attentive, but unobtrusive service, to the vastness of the wine list. Carlos’ Bistro is an experience not to be missed.
We visited Carlos’ Bistro with five friends very recently and loved it...again. We could find fault with nothing. We sat outside on the patio this time and the service is as good as inside the restaurant.
For appetizers my wife and I chose the steak tartare and the ceviche. Simply among the best (if not the best) of both we’ve ever had, including those from restaurants we’ve visiting in Paris, Caribbean and Mexico in the past.
For dinner my wife had grilled sea scallops and I had the pork chop, both were fantastic. The grilled sea scallops were flavorful and melted in your mouth. The pork chop was a generous cut, grilled to perfection and decadent.
We ordered wine from the $50 bottle menu which provides many high quality choices for lovers of white or red wine. There are higher priced wines, many very recognizable and sought after names if you’re inclined. We will be trying some of our favorites.
The best part of the wine list? Sunday and Monday nights through the summer offer bottles of wine at 50% off.
Carlos is ever present to ensure your experience is everything he expects. His expectations for you are likely higher than your own. We’ve dined at many places around the world and have seldom, if ever, felt more welcome than we feel at Carlos’ Bistro. He and his staff make sure you enjoy your visit! There’s a reason this restaurant has been voted #1 in Colorado by Zagat in 2013 and 2014.
If you visit, you won’t regret it, we never do.
