“Very nice, couple things could be better”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

I read all the other reviews here and on Yelp! They were mixed. However, we decided to go here for our anniversary. The place was almost empty, no surprise there - our anniversary is Jan. 8 and restaurants are always pretty empty just after the holidays. Wonderful facility, the atmosphere is delightful, service was attentive. My wife ordered a Caesar salad and complained to me it was 'bitter.' I tasted it and it tasted like the lettuce had gone 'bad.' To their credit, the young server immediately replaced it with a garden salad which was, in my wife's words, "ok, but nothing special." My green chili was very good, our appetizer was good and both of us thoroughly enjoyed our entrees. I had the Sirloin with the caramelized onions and bacon (steak with bacon, how can you go wrong?). The garlic mashed potatoes were very tasty as well. I didn't have dessert, but she had the apple pie which, she said was one of the best she's tasted in a very long time. Presentation was very nice, the place has a very comfortable, yet elegant ambience. We'll likely be back. It's not 'cheap,' we didn't have any wine, and with tax and gratuity, we paid about $100, but it was a very nice meal and a very pleasant evening.

“Christmas eve”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We have a tradition of going to Mozaic with old friends for Christmas eve. The food wasn't the best I've ever had but the ambiance and especially the violinist were outstanding. The creme brulee was our favorite dessert.

“Disappointing lunch”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

We have brought our family to Moziac many times for the Sunday brunch and been pleased. This time we went for lunch on Saturday. What a let down. Three people ordered the French Dip and no one liked it - they said the meat was tasteless and stringy. The sandwiches with fries arrived cold. Two of us specifically asked for our entrees without onions - both arrived with them. There seemed to be only one waitress for the large dining room. The lunch took a long time to arrive, no one followed up and asked how the meals were or whether we wanted dessert. After waiting for 20 minutes to see our waitress , we finally walked out into the lobby to find someone who would bring us the check. We won't be back.

“Caution: Rave Review Ahead”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

We decided to give the Mozaic another try after the mediocre meal we were served several years ago. With our LivingSocial voucher in hand, we found perfection. Perfect ambience, perfect service, perfect wine, perfect meal. We could not have been more pleased. An excellent wine began our evening....Vermonte, Casa Blanca Valley, Pinot Noir. It perfectly matched our meal which included yeasty rolls with herb butter, an attractive garden salad topped with their awesome Pear Viniagarette followed by a perfectly seasoned and beautifully cooked prime rib. The dessert menu looked yummy but we declined as we were full and very satisfied. The word for the evening is just as you would guess....perfect. We are very glad we gave them another try and will definitely make numerous returns. Well worth the drive if you live in the Monument, Castle Rock, south Denver or Colorado Springs area. Plan to spend (including drinks and tip) around $75.00-$100 per couple. One of our best cusine experiences.

“Little Gem with Great Food and Views”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

This was the second time we visited MoZaic and the first visit for dinner. We had brunch for fathers day and it was one of the best brunches I have been too in a long time. Wonderful Buffalo Short Ribs and their desserts were small and fresh and didn't just look good. Watching the thunderstorm roll over the Front Range mountains was a treat too.

We decided to return for dinner on a Wednesday night and there were only about 10 tables seated so it was nice and quiet. We started with an amuse buche from the chef of asparagus and prosciutto and was a lovely bite. We then started with the jalapeno poppers that were filled with bacon, cream cheese and a hint of peanut butter and were wonderful! Our dirty martinis were smooth, ice cold and filled to the brim. We both had the flat iron steak, my husband the chef's special and I ordered off the menu with the blue cheese sauce. Steaks were cooked perfectly and we liked the fact that you could pick sauces and sides and that they were included in the price.

The flour-less chocolate berry cake was divine, just enough and not heavy.

Service was friendly and not too stuffy. The only wait we had was for our second martini as the bartender had stepped out for some reason.

With specials that change daily and a variety of menu options we hope to return soon and plan to tell our friends about this little hidden gem that should be a Colorado Springs destination!
