Great breakfast spot. Was really impressed with the menu. The omelettes were out of this world good. Cannot say enough good things about them! Service was a little slow but not bad!

When in Denver you have to have a Denver omelet which I did and it was amazing. Super tasty and wonderful hashbrowns. I ate there again the next day and the food and service was exquisite. Go.

We went to Ellyngton's at the Brown Palace for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Our breakfast was part of a package at the hotel. The dining room is very open, and spacious, with lots of window views to the street. Even full, the sound level was quite muted and easy to talk over. My lady had a la carte eggs... More

We took all of our visiting family here for breakfast on Christmas Eve, and we were certainly glad we did. The food lived up to the hype and the cocktails were fantastic too. The service was truly outstanding.

I lost a bet when the Broncos lost a game, and the winner wanted brunch at the Brown Palace. We went yesterday. Price is usually about $50 per person, but during February the price was about $70 per person; alcohol is extra. (All ladies took home a long-stemmed rose.) We got the Champaign Brunch for $75 per person, the most... More

We were at the Brown Palace last Sunday for their Valentine's brunch and it was our 9th year going to celebrate Valentine's Day there. We loved it! The food, the service, the atmosphere everything is there to make it a memorable experience. We have never been disappointed in the 9 years we have been going. We are already looking forward... More

I took my Mom, sister and niece here for brunch before Christmas and it was great! There are so many choices and the dessert table, well what can I say, yummy! I will for sure be back.

A friend of ours had a birthday and he chose to come here for lunch. The restaurant was nicely decorated for Christmas which made for a nice atmosphere, but the decorations in the windows could easily be replaces, as they were old and a little worn. The lobby and tea area is beautifully decorated for Christmas and quite a bustling... More

We eat at Ellyngton's in the Brown Palace Hotel in Denver, CO, often, and it is one of our favorites. Good food, and wonderful service.
