Pegasus On the Square Reviews
The owner of the restaurant was a real jerk. He told me that my one and two-year old children (both are in high chairs and only one of them can even talk) behave "inappropriately" and are "rude." His exact words were, "Their behavior is inappropriate. Your kids are rude, lady." This is, of course, after we payed the bill and tipped his slow wait staff. So if you like giving your hard-earned money to jerks, then this is the restaurant for you. Otherwise, you'll get better service at McDonalds.
We were going to go to the "other wonderful restaurant" in Castle Rock to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. Instead, we decided to try the charming Augustine Grill on Wilcox we had passed many times. So glad we did! The visual treat of the exterior and interior are a wonderful hint at things to come. Our waiter, I believe his name was Dwayne, was the epitome of a professional server. He was humorous, extremely knowledgeable about the dishes and wines offered, but not over-bearing and clingy. I liked his honesty. We passed on an appetizer but sampled the Caesars and spinach salads before our main meals. Both were superb, especially the Caesars. The main dishes we had were the Augustine Duet and the seared sesame encrusted tuna steak. The combination of flavors melded deliciously with the wonderful Australian Riesling to wash them down. We don't usually indulge in dessert but *had* to have some. The creme brulee was as good as one I had at the Culinary Institute in St Helena, California with the added bonus of raspberry. Our waiter graciously offered my husband a complimentary sample of a 30 year old Port to accompany his chocolate torte. It did indeed enhance the chocolate flavor! The freshly brewed coffee was rich and smooth. The entire experience took about 2 hours and 45 minutes for three of us...don't come here for "fast food". A dining experience of this caliber must not be rushed so plan accordingly. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food and service. This was truly a memorable experience and we will be back.
Pegasus Restaurant is owned and managed by John DeLay. Pegasus has been in Castle Rock for the past 18 years and in its current location at 313 Jerry Street since 1999. John bought a small stagnant Greek restaurant (he calls it "a Greek/American dive") on East Colfax in Denver 23 years ago. At the time he bought the original Pegasus, the Greek restaurant had added a couple of Mexican items to their Greek menu. Since John moved Pegasus to Castle Rock in the 1980's, the Mexican entrees have grown in popularity until they represent fully one-half of all the sales for Pegasus. John has been blessed with a number of loyal long-term employees during the years he has been a Castle Rock restauranteur. One of the most popular of the dishes at Pegasus is the Chile Rellenos. Head Chef, Gabriel Torres, one of the four Torres brothers who work at Pegasus,has perfected the art of the Chile Relleno over the 15 years he has been at Pegasus. To see a streaming video showing Chef Torres make his famous Chile Rellenos, go to www.signaturedishesofcolorado.comand visit the Pegasus page. John Delay is both blunt and passionate about his restaurant and its relationship to the town of Castle Rock. "Over the years I have watched families grow up. I have hired kids whose parents I have known since before they were born. That's the good thing about living in a small town like Castle Rock in Colorado."
Great food in a cozy atmosphere. Food is quite good. Nice spot for a relaxing or romantic dinner. Dishes are pleasingly prepared and the service is very good. Very relaxing dining experience. You will need reservations. I'm a bit of a Creme Brulee snob and theirs rates in my top ten. Probably the best in Colorado.
The Augustine Grill is Castle Rock's hidden jewel. Everything from the service to the food was impeccable. I recommend going on a Friday or Saturday evening where they have musicians perform for quest on their outside veranda.
Augustine Grill is a treasure hidden on a street corner in Castle Rock. Decor is fabulous, service is impeccable, and the food is outstanding. The staff puts your dining experience together from the minute you arrive until you leave - happy. Prices are less than you would expect for the caliber of cuisine and service.
Shhh! It is unfair to keep this delightful place as a hidden treasure, but it is tempting. After all, There are so many pleasant details throughout the entire experience from the moment you sit down (I asked for a specific bottle of wine and, although they did not have the label I requested at the time, it magically appeared when we returned the following time) to the finale of the most incredible creme brulee this side of Provence. Romantic, charming, and undoubtedly one of the best 'finds' in the area. Would recommend if you want to impress the boss at lunch, or charm the lover at dinner.
