    Awesome place for a nice dinner out. Everything was seasoned perfectly. Server also served with great ettiqute. Only reason it is not a 5 star is because I was not impressed with the old fashioned or cocktails in general. Still overall great dinner.

    The food here is outstanding. We had the calamari, baked brie, and hush puppies for appetizers, and the elk and the stuffed quail for entrées. All were delicious. The trick is to come early during happy hour, which will allow you to do a full tasting menu at a reasonable price. The drinks were delicious as well.

    They know how to make proper good drinks. Plus the food is excellent. You can get elk, quail, boar. Even just the soups and salads are elevated. Stetson has been my bartender several times; he's been great.

    Great atmosphere. Equally as amazing food and drinks. Appetizer was Calamari with ginger Had Baby Greens Salad omitted apricots (personal preference) I know that it would be equally or if not more delicious with them incorporated. Soup was Vegetable Quinoa, oh my sweet baby Jesus this is so delicious like inside hug. SO had 10oz Bison Ribeye with micro roasted mushrooms, garlic potatoes, and spinach w/leeks. Beer was Storybook Little Red riding Ale, and Ginger drop. Tessa our server was outstanding thorough friendly service. Highly Recommend 10 out 10.

    My husband and I were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary, so we were ready to splurge. The mother of the owner & executive chef of the Warehouse is a neighbor; so that's how we were reintroduced to the restaurant. It's our favorite restaurant in town now. We started with a Moscow Mule for him and a Black Russian for me. We had two dips: their Fresh Smashed Guacamole with homemade chips, and their Artichoke-Parmesan dip served with carrot and celery sticks and grilled baguette slices--the Artichoke-Parmesan dip is our favorite. We both ordered the Mongolian-Style Grilled Elk...medium rare. It was served with a black rice stir fry with cabbage, carrot, onion, peas, grilled broccolini, edamame & pineapple. It was definitely worth the price and the wait! We saved a bit of it to bring home, so we'd be able to have dessert--their version of Strawberry Shortcake, made with cream biscuits, lemon curd, vanilla ice cream, strawberry sauce & Chantilly cream. We ate every bite! If you have a special occasion to celebrate, this is what we consider the best place in town. You will not be disappointed.

    ABOUT THE OWNERS

    James started his career as a dishwasher at Embassy Suites in Colorado Springs at the age of 16. By chance (or fate) an employee didn’t show up for work and James was pulled over to make salads and sandwiches. That’s where it all began-his love of cooking and of his wife, Shaundy.

    James and Shaundy met at Embassy Suites where Shaundy’s Dad was the General Manager. Shaundy spent her entire life in the hospitality business, moving all across America. Her passion is serving others and after having two kids, Alaina (22) and Quinn (17) she is happy to be working side by side with James in this new adventure!

    James has a natural talent and gift for cooking but never received a formal cooking education, just the “school of hard knocks” as he says. James cooked in Maui at the Grand Wailea, then moved back to Colorado Springs where he cooked at The Villa at Palmer Lake, Phantom Canyon Brewery, and Pelican’s. James began his time at The Warehouse Restaurant in 1998 working for the then owner, Raphael Sassower. He was the Executive Chef for The Warehouse until 2007 when he moved to New Mexico to work for Ted Turner’s Vermejo Park Ranch.

    After 8 years in New Mexico, we were ready to “do our own thing”. The opportunity to purchase The Warehouse presented itself and so we took the leap and bought The Warehouse in 2015. We now run it together, James in the kitchen and Shaundy in the Front of the House. We love The Warehouse, its history, and the people that have made it so special!
