Description: Already listed as hotel (La Plaza Inn) but this is also a restaurant so it should be listed as both a hotel and a restaurant, or have a separate restaurant listing so that people who pass by and want a meal (like we did) also can find it.

Our waitress was attentive, helpful, and friendly! She was really sweet. The building is really neat, and could easily accommodate a family of 6. The ceiling was so neat I kept looking up instead of making conversation, haha. Also, as a voracious reader, I appreciated the available books around the restaurant. The food was delicious, and satisfied both the picky and the adventurous eaters in my family. The desert looked delicious, but I was too full after my great meal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

This restaurant was excellent. The staff was friendly and attentive even though the restaurant was hopping. We had the prime rib special and it was very good and a very generous portion. The Apple vinaigrette is seriously to die for. We were seated in the dining room which was beautifully decorated and had exquisite place settings. Everything including the bread, baked potato, salad and wine was so very good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Once again, was a nice break for lunch with 2016 Cline Pinot served by Sarena who was very attentive and friendly. Dan was chef today and made a perfect rare Black and Bleu hamburger combination and likewise with the La Plaza club sandwich for my wife. Karen and Bert continue making steady improvements to the patio dining area that we look forward to opening soon if the weather holds. With Chef Tim and servers Bryan and Sara, La Plaza continues a fine tradition as the place to stop when either visiting the local area or stopping for a nice lunch or dinner. We have enjoyed their hospitality for years now and intend to continue for many more. You will likely also enjoy the selection of books lining some walls along with the very interesting wall hangings.

Walsenburg, CO, only has a population of 3,000, so we didn't really expect to find a restaurant with very good cuisine. However, much to our delight La Plaza Restaurant located in the Historic La Plaza Inn, established in 1907, in Walsenburg exceeded our expectations. It was a Sunday evening as we were driving from SW Colorado to Colorado Springs passing through Walsenburg, CO at dinner time. We came upon La Plaza and noted there were a number of cars parked on the street in front of the restaurant giving us some hope. The restaurant has both a very casual café that is open for lunch, and dinner to the general public, whereas the dining room seems to be only open for dinner.

The dining room ambiance is exquisite with table cloths and matching decoratively folded cloth napkins placed neatly in the wine glasses. Some tables along a wall create private dining spaces by being adorned with white cheese cloth type canopies. The service is very efficient and attentive to the customer's needs. The menu selections are numerous and varied. Delicious dark warmed soft textured brown bread was served with soft butter in a separate small bowl along with a butter knife. The chicken marsala was selected and served with an excellent marsala sauce and mixed vegetables, mushrooms, and a scoop of mashed potatoes. Additionaly, either a salad or cup of soup can be chosen and are above par. The chicken was tender and very tasty. The selection of per glass wine was limited and could be improved by adding a few more selections, however, the available selections were fine. Overall pricing for the meal was very reasonable. The restaurant can be best enjoyed when one is in search of a leisurely relaxed atmosphere and not hurried.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel staff and it did not disappoint. Who knew that a restaurant located in downtown Walsenburg, Colorado would end up by having some of the best food we've eaten in quite some time. The homemade ranch dressing and apple vinaigrette salad dressings were absolutely delicious as well as the fresh bread. We each had the ribeye accompanied with the brandy cream sauce (oh my), We finished off with the orange chocolate mousse cake. Our server, Randy,was great but if you come here you cannot be in a hurry so relax and enjoy.
