From the street to seated I could not have asked for more! We loved the location,the history and the atmosphere immediately. The staff was patient, informative and welcoming. The menu was the perfect size with elegant, classic fare fitting of the surroundings. Our meal was perfectly prepared and served. I would have expected to pay much more for such a... More

What a wonderful brunch. Amazing and informative service- Anton took care of our every need, as a restaurant manager myself I understood how many tables he had and how good he was at juggling them. The food was wonderful (try the trout and the prime rib- even though it is breakfast) and while we were taking a break in between... More

We had the most delightful breakfast at Ellyngton's while staying at The Brown Palace Hotel last weekend. In fact it was the highlight of our stay. The room itself is light and full of crystal chandeliers and nice wallpaper. The food was absolutely divine. You had a choice between ordering off the menu or having the wonderful, endless buffet.

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
