I thought it was overpriced. I've been in the food business for many years. you charge for tenderloin should serve tenderloin. I was served a chuck tender. the $3 piece of meat. like I said fool some of the people some of the time.

Had a group Christmas dinner and party here. Food was sooo good and service impecable. They only do private parties now so book a special event. Gorgeous stone place with stain glass windows that have faries in them! Romantic, warm setting with beautiful surroundings in the trees around Manitou Springs.

It's a beautiful historical building and they did an excellent job w the décor. They can accommodate up to 100 people. There is dining, bar and dance areas along with a nice patio with water...

I went to this restaurant a week before it tragically closed! I wish they would find a way they could make it reopen this was some of the best food in the Colorado Springs area!

I ordered the ostrich tataki, Tahitian Vanilla scented lobster bisque, and the red wine braised rabbit. We shared a dessert which consisted of white chocolate mousse,... More

My husband and I saw this advertised in the newspaper and immediately made a reservation. We have been twice and have not been disappointed. The event is on Wednesday nights and you must have a reservation. The meal is 3 courses and you don't know what is going to be served until you arrive(so this is not for picky eaters),... More

We held a company party at the Craftwood Inn last night. I have to say that the even manager, Bobbie Laluna, and the entire staff that supported our event were superb - professionals all! The appetizers we had during our cocktail hour were wonderful - raves were heard from all on the ostrich, shrimp, smoked salmon, sausages, meat platter, and... More
