The Penrose Room lived up to its reputation. Just about everything was tasty. The wait staff was plentiful and attentive. The 4 man orchestra added to the overall experience and we enjoyed dancing between courses and after the meal. ...and the noise level was low, we could have a pleasant conversation easily. The Penrose Room offers 3, 4 or 7 course meals. We had the three course. ...and of course in this French inspired restaurant there are extras, from the amuse bouche of fried oysters and an apple and fennel salad, it was over the top and the confectioneries at the end were a nice touch. I had a delicious cold lobster salad -- the best ever. For the entree I had venison steak. My wife had gnocchi with rabbit and salmon. She thought the salmon was salty. I agree -- it was too salty. The staff offered to replace, but we didn't go there. My major complaint was even with the smallest number of courses offered, there was simply too much food -- the portion size was huge. The wine pairings were great and our sommelier, Thomas F. knew all the wines. He made the night memorable. For most people this is a special occasion place because of the price. Overall, it was worth it. I hope to go back on a future trip to Colorado Springs.

Not sure why this is not the #1 restaurant in all of Colorado Springs. The views from here give you almost a 360 degree views of the mountains and golf course and towards the city. The food was absolute perfection, not a glitch in the service. A truly great experience from beginning to end!

Celebrated a wedding anniversary at this magnificent place, reminiscent of a classic european-style restaurant. Staff in tuxes, and well-orchestrated but not overdone service. All address you by name and extremely polite...nice not to be interrupted continuously by young servers like often experienced in most restaurants. This is a great place to carry on a conversation too, quiet, even with live entertainment....you don't feel like you have to shout to your guests over music or noisy adjacent tables.

Was staying at Glen Eyrie, and went for dinner at the Broadmoor. The view of Colorado Springs is one of the best, service was the best, and the food was to die for. There was even a live band to dance to. Thank you for a FIRST-CLASS meal!!!

Penrose room environment is serene and peaceful. The service either at the bar or tables is impeccable. Location at the top of one of the Five Star Broadmoor towers gives a 270 degree view of the mountains and hotel grounds. ALL the food is fantastic and the drinks really are great. While a little on the high side of costs in town, the all around experience makes it worthwhile. Anyone who places this restaurant below our Ethiopian or Eastern European restaurants in ratings has to be thinking primarily about the upper medium costs here...while these are good restaurants, there is simply no comparison to Penrose room. Penrose competition comes only from the Famous, McKenzie's or one of the local specialty bistros.
