Our breakfast was supposed to be a 75th birthday celebration. We chose Ellyngton's for its charm, food quality, and history. They failed. The food was substandard, our server could barely function, wreaked of cigarette smoke and the manager only made excuses for being shorthanded. Before...More

Just time for a quick bite before our plane, but the food was very good and the service was great. Also enjoyed the city wakeup outside the window by our table.

A superb brunch that lasted @ 2 1/2 hours!! It is the BEST my wife and I have had!. Wonderful selection of various tastes and cultures. Serenaded by very pleasant piano and 2 other instruments. It is not a place/meal for children. Relax and enjoy!...More

I must commend the Brown Palace on this elegant space. Loved the decor, table service, diverse wine list, as well as intricate decor. Napoleon’s actual pistols are on the wall, framed. Photo heaven. Polite staff. Access to hotel. Brilliant place for a fancy night out!
