The Rabbit Hole Dinner & Drinks

Walk Through a Wonderland of Lights to Arrive at Romantic American Food And Cocktails

101 N Tejon St | Colorado Springs|

The Rabbit Hole comes in at the top of our list today for a few reasons. First of all, I feel that the menu is highly accessible so you don’t need to worry about your date not being able to find something they like. And I mean really that’s what you are looking for right? A nice restaurant with food that your date will like. Well then The Rabbit Hole is the place for you.

Not only is the food excellent, they also have an extensive list of cocktails and drinks. And if whining and dining isn’t enough to have your date sold on your special evening, The Rabbit Hole also offers a very romantic atmosphere that isn’t overly stuffy. The atmosphere is romantic, but relaxed and cool at the same time. Which is perfect, I always find the stuffy restaurants aren’t great for a date because it puts both parties on edge having to worry about being overly prim or propero proper. You don’t have to worry about The Rabbit Hole. You’ll have a very lovely upscale evening, but you won’t be burdened by all the extra stuffiness that usually accompanies romantic restaurants.

“What a gem! I nearly didn't want to write a review because I want to keep it to myself! The location and ambiance are so cool! The lighting was sexy and set the tone for a very romantic evening. Our server was fun and knowledgeable. Loved the music. And the food was top notch!” - Yelp Review 

The Rabbit Hole is one of the thousands of restaurants that accepts digital GiftYa gift cards but it is also among one of the highest rated romantic restaurants in Colorado Springs!

Ambli Global Cuisine

Community. Authenticity. Integrity

5278 N Nevada Ave | Ste 160 |

Ambil Global Cuisine would have come in at the top of the list today if it weren’t for the fact that they don’t share too much about their business, their mission, or their direction. However, that being said, they are absolutely loved by the locals in Colorado Springs. But, they are a bit more upscale and stuff then our first restaurant today. Their menu is a tasting menu only and it is served most days from 5-9/9:30PM. So you are really better off calling and reserving  a table ahead of time. But you won’t be able to do thatto that at the bar. Which opens at 4:30 Tues-Saturday and is served on a first come first serve basis

“Absolutely loved this place! From the food, to the vibe, to the service, it was all perfect! Will now be my go-to restaurant in the Springs. Our servers were so sweet and so attentive. Felt very taken care of! This place gets a 10/10!!” - Yelp Review

District Elleven

Elevated Comfort Food and a Premier Whiskey Selection

218 N Tejon St | Ste 120 |

District Elleven (and yes that’s spelled right) is a new speakeasy in downtown Colorado Springs. Their speciality is in the art of craft cocktail mixing and high end whiskey. District Elleven is the place on the list I personally would most like to visit. The only reason it didn’t make the top of the list today is because this article is about restaurants and District Elleven is technically a bar.

But don’t worry, just because they are a bar doesn’t mean you and your date can’t get something delicious to eat while you are there. They specifically refer to their style of food as “elevated comfort food” and not bar food, and that’s for good reason. Chef Noah Siebenaller’s menu is designed to elevate the very concept of bar food to something that feels upscale, established, and best of all romantic. And on top of the elevated comfort food, District Elleven also features an assortment of over 200 bottles of whiskey. The bar was voted as the best new bar in 2020 and the best restaurant after midnight in 2021. So whether District Elleven is your entire evening, or just the last stop on your super date, you are sure to have a great time.

“You'd think this place had been around since the '20s, AWESOME atmosphere!!! Great, friendly service, even better drinks, I absolutely recommend this place… It's very dark, but let your eyes adjust and you'll have a great time. Perfect for those people who want to go out but not interact with other people. Give them a shot!

Peppertree Restaurant

Legendary Fine Dining in Colorado Springs

888 W Moreno Ave | Colorado Springs |

The most amazing thing about the Peppertree (well besides the food) is the panoramic view you have of downtown Colorado Springs. If you are looking to really blow your date out of the water then this is the place for you. On top of the breathtaking view, you can also expect the classic fine dining menu with a unique tableside preparation of the finest steaks. And on top of the steaks, The Peppertree Restaurant also offers an extensive wine list as well as a whole variety of seafood options. So you can be sure your date will have an amazing view, an amazing meal, and an amazing drink. And you can’t really do much better than that when it comes to romantic restaurants in Colorado Springs. But free piece of advice, make a reservation and ask for a window seat when you do. You won’t regret it.

“Absolutely Fabulous! Peppertree staff was amazing, We were in for a small wedding for our son, and with impromptu plans... They took our reservation on short notice. The service was impeccable, all the staff was fun and professional. We are from TX, so when i say the steaks were phenomenal, I mean it!  I cannot say enough..” - Yelp Review

Bourbon Brothers Smokehouse and Tavern

Calling All Casual Romantics! Get An Upscale Experience Without the Stress of Stuffy Fine Dining Establishments

13021 Bass Pro Dr  | Colorado Springs |

Bourbon Brothers Smokehouse and Tavern makes it on our list today for a few reasons. First of all though is the fact that they offer a bit of a different menu then you might be accustomed to at most romantic restaurants. Their menu is all southern inspired so while it has all the classics that you or your date might be craving, they are often prepared with a southern twist. This is great if you are looking for a nice date with your partner but aren’t looking for something ridiculously overpriced or overhyped. You have a fun, romantic evening filled with excellent customer service and great food. And on top of the great food, as the name might suggest, Bourbon Brothers has an extensive whiskey menu and barlist for when you or your date get thirsty. 

“This place is mindblowing. The education Ted  gave us of Bourbon vs Whiskey was mind blowing and fun. David, our waiter, was very helpful and went out of his way to make sure we got the best bourbon sampler! The view of the Rockies is stunning and the inside is beautifully decorated.” - Yelp Review
