Description: Springs Orleans is dishing up local favorites and Cajun Classics! We are the hottest NEW restaurant and bar in Downtown Colorado Springs. Whether you are craving a burger, a salad or some amazing etouffee, Springs Orleans has something to please everyone. Executive Chef Jason Miller has created a menu that is as affordable as it is delicious. From your appetizer to your dessert - which is made fresh in house daily, you won't be disappointed. Laissez le Bon temp rouller! (As they say in Nawlins - Let the Good Times Roll! )

“Not if you're from New Orleans!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

The atmosphere is classic & the art is beautiful from Eddie Mormon in Louisiana. But the executive Chef is from Florida and knows nothing of Orleans food, not even the basics. PO-boy bread is made with Sourdough, the Blue Crab lump cake is lacking the crab--couldn't even taste it was crab. Beignets (Chef's own recipe) were doughy inside. Gumbo made with one piece of sausage and rice. Even a $32 steak is very small & comes with only 1 side. Seriously. No fresh rolls or salad is included. Spoke to the Chef who was already aware he needed to make French bread and is gonna work on it--told to try back in a few months. No thanks. We weren't even given napkins.

“Good option for Cajun in the Springs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

We enjoyed a very nice dinner with friends and were all pleased with our meals. The calamari appetizer was good, with a light batter, but we felt it could have incorporated more spice in both the batter and tomato dipping sauce. The etouffee was very good with a rich, layered sauce. I had it with both crawfish and shrimp; it was heavy on the shrimp and would have preferred more crawfish. The gumbo was very dark with good flavors, but it could have used more meat and a slightly sweet undertone kept me from enjoying it more; my wife liked it. Service was friendly and good with no problems. One of our friends has dietary restrictions and the staff did a great job providing a modified meal that wasn't on the menu. The oyster Po Boy and sweet potato tots looked pretty basic and our friend didn't comment about it which leads me to surmise it was average. The wine list is very basic, but there are a few good selections. We enjoyed the chocolate torte with raspberry sauce; there were two nice slices of tasty torte but only about six raspberries on the plate. The prices were a bit higher than we would have preferred but there are few choices for Louisiana food in Colorado Springs and the other Cajun restaurants have comparable prices. The menu options and style of cooking is different than I've enjoyed in New Orleans, Baton Rough, or Shreveport, but it was an enjoyable experience and we plan to return.

“Tasty New Orleans fare far from the Big Easy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Interesting menu--my etoufee was tasty and seemed authentic. Alligator was a fun appetizer. Service was correct and prompt--with servers not assigned to our large group jumping in to help.
Huge tasty berries on my breakfast oatmeal the next day. Good choice.

“Top notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Breakfast of the Gods. My Husband and I went for breakfast, Eggs Mornay and Fresh Bignets, pot of tea. Heaven. The Eggs Mornay were so good, fresh ham, crispy pototos and the best sauce. Loved it.

“Seriously need improvement on service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Party of nine, drinks appear randomly, water served as an afterthought, long delays. Table seated after is now getting there food.
Eight of nine receive their food, oops, forgot the 9th meal. Another wait for that meal to a hungry 10 year old. Slow shoddy service.
Waiter bussed a couple of plates, then I took the rest of the plates and set them on the bar. We loved the begniets and decided
next time we would come for those ONLY
and call it good. Hate to think what the service would be like if they were really busy.
