Went for my birthday. Lovely table, on time, birthday wishes by all staff, attentive service, sometimes a little silly even. Eg, at the end of meal our waiter offered a small, wrapped sweet roll "for our morning experience " the next day. Loved the roll, BTW. We have happily eaten at both a three... read more

Reservations were made weeks in advance and the best available was 8:30 on Dec. 23rd. This was our first and LAST time dining there. We were shown to a table right by the kitchen exit doors and out of view of the band. After we complained, a booth was found to be available! We chose the three course meal @$84... More

Good afternoon, We appreciate you feedback and apologize for such a horrible experience as it is very atypical. I am looking back at the reservations and trying to locate yours. I didn't find it for that date or under your name, perhaps you made the reservation under another name? We are trying to research your visit and get to the... More

You’re paying for the atmosphere, and food display. The most surprising thing about this restaurant is all of the food is cold. It is all cooked, but still cold, including the steak. The second is spending ~$500 for 2 people, and leaving hungry. The service and setting is excellent. A dance floor, and live band included. While deciding which number... More

The first night at the resort, we had dinner at the Penrose. From the time the staff take your coat, you are amazed at the service and beauty of the venue itself.

For a special occasion a friend took me to the Chef's tasting menu. To make this more difficult, none of us drink more than one or two drinks at a meal. In spite of the set menu and price, I felt as though the staff treated us as though we were the most important part of the meal. They bent... More

Had a Christmas party here on Friday. Food and Staff were exceptional. Never had service quite as exemplary as here. Pricey but its a 5 star restaurant.

We dined at the Penrose Room for my birthday, and it was worth every penny. We had the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing, a wide variety of foods and wines artfully presented. It was a little heavy on the meat for my taste, but that's probably attributable to the season (late November). The wines were lovely and the wine... More

After eating in NYC and other top food destinations, I can truly say this was a 5 star restaurant experience from beginning to end. The exquisite setting and decor, live jazz band, smiling and attentive staff were what greeted us. The meal only got better and better as the night progressed.

We finally broke down and had dinner at the Penrose Room. We were not disappointed! I even thought the price was good for what you get. Everything on the menu is prefix. You have your choice of 3 course, and it goes up from there (all the way to a 7 course Chef prefix with Sommelier for $215+/pp). We thought... More
