Colorado Steakhouse offers a great steak. That’s for sure. If you’re in the mood for a nice piece of beef, Colorado would be an excellent place to go.
I was there on a weekday afternoon and the restaurant was quite busy for Szczecin standards. Good sign. The thing that stood out for me during my visit was the great service I received. My server was able to give me very good recommendations based on what I asked for.
The next great thing was the terrasse. Colorado is situated on the left edge of the Wały Chrobrego Embankment and provides a nice and relaxing view of the riverside with boats occasionally floating by and cranes (my favorite!) hard at work. This is a GREAT place to sit on a warm day, have some drinks and enjoy time with friends!
Finally the food came. Of course I had to order the Texas Steak and I didn’t regret it! It smelled so good! It was cooked to perfection, very soft and delicious. I don’t eat meat very often, so when I do I make sure it’s good quality. I would say that, true to its reputation, this is one of the best steaks I have ever had in Szczecin.**
If I could give the steak a separate rating I would give it a 100.
To be fair, I suppose I would have to come back a few more times and order a couple of different dishes. I gave the food an 85, which is quite low for me. ( I only write reviews for the restaurants that I highly enjoy). The reason for the low rating was that the sides seemed to be a mere afterthought and next to the beautiful steak, they were quite a disappointment. It seems to me that if Colorado wants to be considered a great restaurant it should put some more effort into the sides and presentation.
As far as the rest of the menu, it seems that some of the items are grossly overpriced, especially the burgers that range in price from 27 to 49PLN!!! (WTF?!)

** The best steak I have ever had, to my recollection, in Szczecin was at Trattoria Toscana. That restaurant has the same owner as Colorado, so I assume the source of the meat was the same.
The second best steak I had in Szczecin was at Wyszak Family Brewery.
