Is it worth the price...you decide

Wonderful food, superb service, one of the best views in town but you have to decide if it is worth the price. For a really special occasion I am sure it is, every day dining, maybe not.

We looked forward to an outstanding dress-up evening with GREAT food for our anniversary. The room and atmosphere were lovely, even though 60% of the tables were empty. We choose the three courses for $84 - and a bottle of wine - and a couple of $12.50 cocktails. The service was a bit over the top - with occasional smiles... More

We have been visiting the Broadmoor every summer for almost 10 years. We celebrate our anniversary annually in the Penrose Room. Years ago, the Penrose Room was always great. Then it became boring. Finally, it just became awful; (one year I ordered a vegan degustation and was given salad, soup, salad, quinoa, salad, and mixed nuts from the bar in... More

After seeing mixed reviews on TripAdvisor but loving fine dining, we made a reservation. From the first bite to the last sip of wine, we enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairings. It was over-the-top phenomenal! The restaurant enjoys a lovely view of the mountains and sunset and has live music to enjoy. Some people were even dancing.... More

A lovely restaurant. The views were spectacular and the live orchestra and dance floor made it extra special. However, poor service ruined the dinner. This is a fairly expensive restaurant, so be prepared for that. The appetizer courses are definitely their strong suite. All the appetizers we had were delicious. The main course was just OK. Nothing special, and the... More

We've been blessed to having opportunities to dine at some exceptional restaurants throughout the world. Therefore, we were excited to go to the only Forbes Travel Guide 5 Star/AAA 5 Diamond restaurant in Colorado history. Everything we experienced was absolutely exceptional from the view (9th floor with mountain, lake and golf course views), to the attentive waitstaff, to the wine... More

Let me begin by saying, we love the Broadmoor hotel. It is our oasis ,but we were not terribly impressed with the Penrose considering the cost. On this trip, we decided to make the necessary reservations at the Penrose Room (jackets required for men). We paid $285.00 (including the tip) for two glasses for wine, appetizer, entree and desert. I... More

In a restaurant that requires men to wear a jacket, you'd expect the service to be stuffy and the food to be overworked. But here at the Penrose Room, neither is true (men do have to wear a jacket, though). The service is polite and efficient, and the food is really really tasty (worth of two "really"s!). The food can... More

This is just such an awesome experience. Everything is absolutely perfect. Such personal attention, you are greeted by name and the waiters are there for your every need. If you drop your napkin, they will instantly appear with a new one. The delivery of your entree is pure perfection. Our dessert had a sauce that they drizzled down five spoons... More
