“Not necessarily the best in Town”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2007

Okay, my wife and I might be the minority, but we were totally unimpressed by the Peppertree. We consider ourselves sophisticated eaters and expected a lot based on the reputation of the Peppertree.
What we found was a consistent theme--everything was covered in an overly-sweet glaze. The PepperSteak, which is their signature item, is a steak slow-cooked in about 4 tablespoons of butter. Then, they cover this with a mango chutney which completely overpowers the steak
and is much too sweet. One of our appetizers was Sesame Crusted Diver
Scallops with a sweet Thai chili sauce. My wife is 99% certain this is Mae Ploy chili sauce from the bottle--we have a bottle in our pantry and I agree. We were expecting something made from scratch given that 2 scallops cost $13. Our other appetizer was Cashew Crusted Crab Cakes with Blackberry horseradish sauce. The crab cakes by themselves were well prepared, but the sauce was a disaster and should be reconsidered. Another entree we had was the Colorado Rack of Lamb. The lamb was tender and well-cooked, but they failed to trim the excess fat which made it a greasy mess to eat. Again, this was paired with an overly-sweet cherry-thyme sauce. Frankly, the lamb
at the Broadmoor kicks this lamb's hiney.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2004

OMG! This place is the absolute best ever. Perfect views, incredible food, top notch service! Very nice atmosphere, nice and quiet for a romantic dinner, or perfect for a evening business meeting. A must try!

“One of the two best restaurants in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2004

This is THE place to go when you want a special night out. The service is superb, and the food is great. The pepper steak is cooked at the table.
