Great experience all around

Dined 4 days ago

It was my first time dining at Nosh and I was very impressed. It was date night and we ended up doing the 4 course meal. Our server made excellent food choices and we loved everything we ate. The pace of service was good and portion sizes were perfect, especially for tapas still food. VERY impressed with everything and have already recomended Nosh to many friends. Definitely will be back again.

Great Service!

Dined on April 2, 2016

The service was wonderful. They all were friendly, knowledgeable, attentive, from the host to our server to the young man refilling our water. The pork belly (that was the special and not the pork belly that is always on the menu) was amazing! Perfectly cooked and the kale and edamame salad it was served with was a perfect pair. We will be back!

Thank you for a lovely evening. I had to plan the night from Korea so it was a bit challenging, but the staff came through. I took my boyfriend there for his birthday. It was also where we had our first date, so it was a very special occasion for us. The service was very nice and the food was delicious. He and I were both very pleased with our evening.

We frequent Nosh and always come away happy. The chef regularly adds new and exciting dishes and the staff is always pleasant. The bar pours'em the way I like and the fish on the wall make me happy. I'm a fan. Thanks Nosh.

Valentine's Day

Dined on February 15, 2016

We have eaten at Nosh before on several occasions and have always been quite happy on all points of service and dining. The 4 course Valentine's Day dinner was not the case. For $45 per person, we were a little underwhelmed. "Sharing" a salad (splitting one plated salad with tongs) was cute, sharing 3 oysters is just plain ridiculous, especially for gritty warm water oysters (2 is stingy and 4 is justifiable), and sharing a very small desert is silly. This was the worst perception of a 4 course meal that we have experienced. The entrees were both pretty good though. The 5 spice duck was excellent, and the flavor of the lobster was wonderful, although it was broiled well-done and stuck to the shell. The Margarita at Pine Creeks is about the same price point for a coursed meal, and a much better value, as the courses are never shared and each person is allowed to make his or her own selections per course. For $90, we were both left wanting more (not just portiinwise and confused as to why we shared 3 of the courses which left us with minimal options and a minimal sense of being impressed. Despite the wonderful service, it will be quite a while, if ever again, that we will return to Nosh, as it seemed they made quite the profit off of a shockingly low guest count for what should have been a slammin' night.

Dined on February 15, 2016

Attended their Valentine dinner and it was very good. The service was excellent and the food was unique. I would have like a few more options on the main entree as neither duck or lobster are my favorite foods - perhaps a chicken or meat dish instead of one of those. Overall, it was a very good dinner and I am a repeat customer. Their drink menu is also excellent.

Unique and tasty

Dined on February 14, 2016

This restaurant was a great find for a Valentine dinner. The "small" plates and entrees are perfect for sharing. The flavors were different and totally yummy. Service left a little to be desired but it was a very busy night. Value was excellent and the fish was cooked perfectly. Would definitely go back and recommend to anyone. Not suitable for young children.

Eclectic menu

Dined on February 14, 2016

Took my fiance there for Valentine's day. Nice place although not particularly romantic. But the food here is outstanding. Very creative mix of ingredients and flavors. Smaller portions so you don't come away stuffed and actually have room for one of their excellent deserts. Attentive wait staff, mellow atmosphere, and reasonable prices make this a repeat destination. We've been trying different restaurants in town for "date night" and this is the best so far.

Not For Hungry People

Dined on January 8, 2016

This place has a cool vibe and is located in a neat space. The staff were very friendly and excited to serve us and the ambiance was pretty good as well. The menu had good variety. The size of dishes was not a problem, but the cost for each small plate was ridiculous. We were hungry, and would have spent $100 if we both were to eat enough to fill us up. We are both athletic and eat very healthy, but these were simply tasters. So, great place to take a date if you're concerned about looking like a pig, but don't expect to leave full unless you have the money for it. The food was delicious though!

Pre-Fixed NYE

Dined on January 1, 2016

The whole experience was below average and we left highly disappointed. It was a NYE prefixed meal for $45 per person and $20 per person for wine tasting. The appetizer was a spoon full of rice and sushi. It was OK. The beet salad looked really good - upon tasting it was tasteless. There were sprigs of greens and a few slivers of beets and maybe radish, all of which had no taste. We also shared the salad, which when reading online I assumed each person would get to pick one of each for themselves- we were then told it was all share able plates- which would have been ok if there was substance on the plate. The scallops were again tasteless- the plate looked appealing but they had no taste and were gritty like sand. At one point we were sitting with water at the table for about 15 minutes bc of the wine pre-fix you only got a drink with the meal. The table was also broken and my boyfriend had to put a stack of his credit cards under the leg to stop it from tilting during our meal. Our meal finally came after a long wait (which I'm not sure why the wait was so long with a pre-fixed meal, and one of the meal options wasn't available). I had salmon which was cold and the eggplant was severely under cooked. My boyfriend was pleased with his steak and one deep fried mashed potato ball. I was under enthused by the entire situation. Finally, dessert came which I was most looking forward to as it was Green Tea Pound Cake. It was a sliver of cake that was dry and tasted old. The ice cream was good. In fact it was the best part of the entire meal. $140 later- I wouldn't recommend this pre-fixed meal for any occasion. I read the previous reviews and most of them were negative, but this was the only restaurant who still had reservations available and I can see why. Plan ahead and go to McKenzie's!

Exceeded Expectations-making CO Springs proud

Dined on December 25, 2015

As a CO Springs native I was looking for a place to take a non-local on Christmas Eve. Nosh had been previously recommended by a friend but didn't seem quite the place for a special evening. I was wrong! The five course menu looked simple enough on paper but every part was carefully and creatively put together. The wine pairings the Nosh staff had chosen alongside each course were perfect. The service was prompt and friendly. I am aware that the five course treatment is not the traditional Nosh experience but I am more certain that I will be back to see what is. Nosh is definitely making CO Springs a better place to be.

So disappointed!

Dined on December 11, 2015

I have been to Nosh many times over the years. Our bookclub met here for our holiday party last week. I was so disappointed and embarrassed by our experience. The service was very intermittent and almost nonexistent. The some of the food was terrible (highly over spiced) and timed poorly. I commented on many of our issues with a few different servers that were taking care of us and they just shrugged their shoulders! I have not experienced such poor quality with this restaurant group before! I hesitate to go back. I really hope Nosh isn't going down hill!!

I eat out a lot, because I travel for work. My meal at Nosh was one of the best this year. The food was outstanding, as was my drink, and the service. It was relaxed yet professional. The server made some great recommendations, and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal here. It will be my first stop on my next trip to Colorado Springs.

One of my favorites

Dined on November 22, 2015

I have been to Nosh several times over the years but not recently. They had been known for their small plates and nice wines. They recently changed to more of an Asian theme. I was a bit skeptical that they would change what I thought was working. Anyway, the service was impeccable using a 'team' approach so it felt like anyone that came to our table could help with any question. The wine list was short but the selections were good. The drink menu was solid as they were trying new drinks and were willing to take feedback on what worked and what didn't. The martini didn't work but the manhattan worked all day long. The food menu was small but the options were diverse. We had calamari as an app and it was perfect. We had tuna and steak as main dishes and neither disappointed. Cooked perfectly and good flavor. Didn't have room, so skipped the dessert. Opted for a glass of wine instead. Even though they changed their approach from what I was accustomed to, I will be back.

Nosh has been so consistent through the years that you almost take it for granted, but please don't. It's extremely difficult to turn out great food and service as Nosh has for so long but they've obviously figured it out.

Sadly, Not our taste anymore....

Dined on November 8, 2015

we go to nosh on date nights about 2-3 times a year. sadly, they changed their menu to be more Asian focused and there was less variety on the menu. my husband and i were disappointed and because our tastes are not in this area. the fun part about nosh use to be ordering smaller plates and sharing them WITH the variety but now it just seems like every other restaurant downtown but that has their focus on Asian. there was nothing that would draw me to go back and it seemed less innovative than it was 6 months ago. we won't be back or recommend to friends/family as we use to take friends down with us. on a positive note, our server who had been there for 4 years —rocked!

The food is healthy but inventive. So many tasty items it is hard to narrow it down. The brusselsprouts and cauliflower are delicious. Even a vegetable hater would like them. We had edamame to start dressed in a jalapeño soy sauce. I had a double greens spicy bowl with toasted bread to sop up the yummy sauce.

Great Drinks, Fantastic Food, Good Times

Dined on October 18, 2015

We went to Nosh for the second time and had a fantastic meal. The service is top notch, never did we have an empty glass nor did or finished plates last on the table for more than a few minutes. A limited menu highlights fantastic items with Asian influences. The calamari and squid appetizers were amazing. The pork belly I ordered could have spent a bit more time cooking to be a bit more tender but the overall plate was amazing.

An absolutely delicious couple of entrees, along with an outstanding Malbec. Service was caring, tho it took a while to get the requested bread. Actually was surprised that a restaurant of this caliber would charge for two bits of bread. We realized that our waitress was in training even tho the manager asked us how she had performed. WE thought she was caring and thoughtful and as helpful with the menu as she could be considering. All in all, a delightful and expedient experience

Great place to meet for lunch, service was great!

Dined on September 16, 2015

Great location with free parking in the garage. Had a table reserved for me and the service was outstanding, very attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere was modern and cozy with a Asian flare. The sweet potato fries were excellent and included as a starter for the lunch meal. The food was in fact very good, so I have to hand it to them for that. I ordered the Works salad and Spicy Coconut Lentil soup. Both were delicious, but I especially liked the flavor/taste combination in the salad-- sweet from pears and candied walnuts, salty from bacon, savory from goat cheese. The salad and cup of soup was an excellent combo and still left me full at the end of the meal. Most of the food is easy to share and the style does create an enjoyable experience shared among friends. The prices are fairly reasonable for a tapas-style restaurant, plus they have a happy hour m-f (3pm-6pm) with extended hours on Monday (3pm-9pm). There are some good deals on HH food and alcohol, but not all the items on the HH menu are reduced from the actual menu, so beware! That was a bit misleading & I wasn't a fan how their HH menu didn't ask reflect discounts. I didn't order any alcohol, but they have a decent menu, featuring a lot of good-sounding cocktails and a decent selection of beer and wine. Located street level of the Plaza of the Rockies building in the heart of downtown, just a few minutes from my office. Such a great place especially for after work socializing! On a sunny day, sit outside &see beautiful Pikes Peak and the wide open sapphire blue Colorado skies. On days you want to be inside, like during a mid-afternoon summer thunderstorm, this place is quaint yet hip and trendy. Nosh isn't a restaurant in my regular rotation of lunch spots and I wouldn't say there is a menu item that I heart-achingly crave, but it's hard to deny that it is a fine place for a business lunch or the occasional happy hour among people in suits & khakis. Overall, A pleasant experience!
