We stayed at the Lenox and ate breakfast at City Table all but one morning. The menu has the standard breakfast items that we wanted. The prices were fair, the quantities were reasonable and the service was excellent. There is a different menu on the weekends, i.e., brunch.

We visited City Table three times, three days in a row, twice for brunch and once for a regular breakfast. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The food is solid, nicely served, and while the brunch selection wasn't really different from a regular breakfast, the good quality of food, its freshness and affordable prices well made up for the...

This place is in the Lenox hotel, which is beatiful. The service is great and the food will definitely bring me back. The drinks were also pretty good and around $10-12 each.

Staff was great, food was great, oysters nice and fresh as was the sushi grade tuna. The bar also attracts its share of regulars who are also very friendly and engaging. Breakfast I see by some has been reviewed poorly, but we would disagree, even the home fries have a touch. The price point I don't think is that far... More

We stayed at the Lenox Hotel and enjoyed three great meals at this restaurant within the hotel. For dinner we shared the trio of spreads, the kale salad, the crispy chicken tacos, and the sliders. We arrived at the hotel late at night and were starving. We told the waiter this and he was quick to bring out everything as... More

We had breakfast one morning. It was fine, but nothing special, and a little expensive,so overall not good very good value for money. For example, a glass of juice came in a tiny glass and my scrambled eggs were slightly overdone. My husband's omelette was delicious though.

Great food. Fabulous Bloody Mary. Very friendly staff all working together. Bartender is a super nice guy! Nice jazz/Blues music playing in the overhead speakers, but not too overwhelming. Allowed us to linger over coffee. Worth every penny! Will definitely go back.

Had a wonderful dinner here. Wine and specialty cocktail ($12) were excellent. One of us had the mango kale salad topped with a delicious, tender skirt steak as an entree ($18). The other entree we had - Colorado lamb chops served on top of crispy breaded eggplant with a wine pomegranate reduction sauce ($27) was exceptionally good. The lamb was... More
