“Great experience”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Everything from the service, atmosphere, staff, and food was outstanding! Great place to celebrate a special occasion. I had the king crab salad for the appetizer, scallops for the entree, and passionfruit and coconut bombe for dessert. The kind crab salad was so delicious and light! I wish I could order a container of it to go. The dessert was so refreshing. They go out of their way to give you a great experience. You could tell how well orchestrated the service was.

“The most opulent restaurant we have ever experienced! 5 STARS!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

My husband brought me here as a birthday surprise this past summer and it was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. We are a younger couple in our 30's and found this to be very romantic!! We have dined in beautiful restaurants around the world, but this is worth the attendance of Presidents and royalty. We dressed in formal attire and were treated like royalty ourselves. The sheer opulence of the Penrose Room is reminiscent of an era gone by, and the service is far superior to any I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. The food was excellent, and the staff were welcoming and overly considerate of special requests. The live music, wonderful food, and elegant atmosphere were well worth the prices for the experience. There were also gorgeous views as well, but we barely noticed because the interior features were so breathtaking. I felt like a princess! We highly recommend (at LEAST once in your lifetime, if not more!)

“Blew me away”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

So this is what elegant fine dining is all about. When we were in Hong Kong we had the tasting menu at the Four Seasons. I didn't think anything could rival that, but happily the Penrose delivered at about one-third of the price and equal quality of food and service. Plus the band was awesome as well. This is a must for anyone staying at the Broadmoor, or even in the Springs that is looking for a special night out. It was the best part of our weekend get away.

“Penrose Room a Favorite”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Going to dinner at the Penrose Room is like going to visit and old trusted friend. From the staff, to the service, to the food everything was excellent and predictable. It is certainly a wonderful place to spend a couple of hours dining with friends or a loved one and you won't be dissapointed.

“Service all the way”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We had boasted to all our friends about going to the Penrose room after the Christmas program. We walked in as the bartender was almost all done putting his liquor bottles away. He looked our way, and politely put all the drinks back on the shelf without a huff or a sign of discouragement. We were a large party and others came in after us so it was worth their time, but WOW, not many would respond with such a terrific attitude. Well done!
