Ellyngton's at the Brown Palace Ratings and Reviews
I enjoyed lunch here so much yesterday that I had to head downstairs this morning for breakfast, too. And I'm really glad I did. This was the best breakfast I have had in a very long time.
They started us off with an amuse bouche. Let's see....when was the last time I had an amuse bouche for breakfast? Ummm...never? A deep spoon of chocolate chip pancake topped with macerated strawberries and powdered sugar. Yummy bite.
I was super hungry this morning and although I am not a fan of omelets typically, I decided to order one with green chilies and cheese. I think this was the best omelet I have ever had in my entire life. Fluffy and packed with diced mild green chilies and melted American cheese. So delicious! The hash brown were perfectly crisp, and a serving of thick, sourdough toast smothered with strawberry jam was a great accompaniment.
My boyfriend had the Irish Cut Oatmeal Brulee topped with Bourbon Apples and Streusel. Wow!!! This tasted like apple pie! Really delicious, but our only complaint was that it wasn't very hot when it was served.
The food was extraordinary and I really enjoyed this restaurant. It was pricey though - $44 for 2 for breakfast. And unfortunately I have to say that the service was not good. We were basically abandoned by our waiter, never checked on, and had to flag someone down near the end of our meal just to get refills on our coffees and waters. When he did return, he was pretty forgetful.
Other than that though, what a great place! You definitely need to stop in when you are in Denver.
My boyfriend and I are in town for business and staying at The Brown Palace. We decided to take a break from working and head downstairs to Ellynton's for lunch.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is quite formal, and very refined feeling. We were promptly helped and greeted.
I was super impressed by the menu! They had so many different options which sounded absolutely amazing.
My boyfriend ordered the Country Club and fries which were both very good. I wanted to eat light and had a large Superfood Salad which contained greens, raspberries, blackberries, tomatoes, cucumber, pecans and candied cashews topped with a lavender vinaigrette. The salad was perfect - light and fresh and just what I needed.
Two cappuccinos with biscotti topped off our meal. This was such a lovely experience I'm planning on returning for breakfast tomorrow while my SO attends a meeting.
Father's Day brunch was wonderful! Our server was friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. Our only suggestion is to include a green vegetable option to accompany the carved meat selections. We saw the potato bar and the salad bar was plentiful; however a standard green vegetable-- sprouts, broccoli, asparagus, green beans, etc. would have been appreciated.
This brunch is NOT for quitters or the light hearted. Shmancy brunch buffets are actually really hard to do well. They pretty much nailed it with keeping a good balance of enough of a dish on display so that you rarely got there and there was something out but also not so overstocked that anything on the buffet looked like it had been there a beat too long. Also, they were constantly restocking those things that ran out quickly. I was sheepishly (not really that sheepishly) taking the last 6 oysters and when I turned around a server was waiting patiently with a tray of oysrters - I hadnt even seen or heard her get there. If I lived in Denver I would probably be here once a month - I'd be broke and huge(r) but probably worth it in the scheme of things.
I was seated at a very nice table with a great view. I grew up in Denver and our family always went to what was at the time The San Marcos Room for Easter Sunday breakfast and First Communions. Now as Ellyngton's it has the same friendly but elegant atmosphere. I scored the food quality only 4 stars because the scrambled eggs were a little cold around the edge, but not a deal killer.
My sister and I took our parents to Ellyngton's for their Anniversary. The ambiance and service was exceptional. The food was scrumptious and the presentation was just as lovely. I look forward to another trip to Denver to partake once again. Yummy!
Overall the brunch at Ellyington's was quite disappointing. The brunch included champaign and we had to ask multiple times for refills. The food was tasty, however for the price the selection was bland. There was very little creativity and selection compared to other brunches we have been to. I would rather go back to Jill's where the price is half and there was a larger selection. This brunch is rated one of the best in Colorado, however I would not recommend this brunch and will not return for the Sunday brunch.
I was told there were no reservations available at noon when I wanted to go. Instead made one for 10:30 AM because that's all that was available. When we got there, almost every table was empty when we came and when we left at 11:45. Disappointing. Menus were dirty. Food was good.
We attended Mother's Day brunch at Ellyngton's and it was superb! Everyone had a wonderful time. The food was excellent with a good variety and the dessert station can please any kid (or grown kid)! I would highly recommend their brunch for a special occasion.
The brunch at Ellyngton's may very well ruin any future brunches you attend. I could go on and on about how top-notch everything is, i.e. the service and the food, but what I should really do is offer advice to anyone reading this:
There are so many wonderful items to choose from, start very slow lest you wind up in a deep, possibly painful, food coma. This eating experience is a marathon, not a sprint.
I have been to the Brown's Palace a few of times and decided to invite my son and his family to celebrate my granddaughters advancement into the martial arts world of the, "Black-Belt"! She recently advanced into her, "OREO", aka, "Conditional Black Belt" and a celebration was at hand! it was so wonderful to share some of the stories of the palace with her that we had once learned about on a prior visit, when she was much younger, like 4. Being 11 today, and achieving such a high honor we knew that, The Brown's Palace's Ellington Sunday Brunch would be just the treat for her!
The Ellington's did not disappoint!
Learning of the palace’s historical stories from a previous guided tour and being able to share this knowledge with the family was so fun! If you have never taken the guided tour, they do not disappoint in that arena either! Just knowing all of the stories (paintings) that are on the walls, and sitting in front of you when you walk in, like the water fountain, the one or two balcony railings that are upside down or backwards just to be, "not perfect" in the lobbies phenomenal lobby. Just the little things, like the huge Spa entrance that was once a fireplace at the palace! So, much history! So, if you love wonderful, wonderful food, devine service, valet parking with reservations, and history, you will love, “Denver’s Brown’s Palace”! So many wonderful restaurants and such beautiful rooms!
You just have to take a guided tour, sleep there, eat there, listen to the history, amazing stories!!!!
Congratulations Ms. Rylee Belle, our little OREO!!
Friendly and welcoming staff, a surprisingly casual atmosphere for their Sunday champagne brunch (suit and tie definitely not required). Different pricing options were a plus. Service was good, food options good, quality good. We sat very near the musicians so at times difficult to talk. We were a table of 6 and took up a lot of room on their stage--the tables for two around us were quite squished--not sure at around $75 per they felt they were getting the experience they paid for. Overall enjoyable, certainly fine to try at least once if the pocketbook can support it.
For one of the most recommended brunch places in Denver, this place was a let down. Most of the ready-made foods, such as waffles and bacon, were difficult to eat and seemed like it was left there for awhile. We were not impressed by the omelette station because the end result was very dry for fresh made omelettes. Everything was exceptionally salty or sickenly sweet. The only items we enjoyed were the baked croissants and seafood bar with sushi. We left feeling disappointed at the quality and did not feel like it was worth the money.
Ellyngton's has been and continues to be my favorite breakfast and brunch spot in Denver. Having an excuse to walk through the Brown Palace Hotel is simply the cherry on the top. The food is always outstanding and the wait staff is truly unparalleled. Ask to be seated in Keith's section, he's incredible! On Sunday mornings they offer a small breakfast buffet prior to Sunday Brunch. If you're not hungry enough for the full Brunch then I would highly recommend this as an alternative. The price is right as well. Fabulous ambiance, delicious food, and doting staff make for a wonderful experience, regardless of the occasion.
We went to Ellyngton's for breakfast to celebrate my wife's birthday and I enjoyed the experience as much as she did, if not more. The ambience is exceptional, the food simple and delicious and the coffee is one of the best we have had. We will be going back again for sure.
We have been to Ellington's many times for brunch over the years and I'm happy to say that the quality and standards have not wavered. I was afraid that coming here for Easter would prove to be a letdown; I'm happy to report that this was not the case. The food was fantastic, the champagne was flowing and the service was flawless. The Easter bunny was even around for the kids. My only disappointments were sitting close enough to the band to have much chair actually touch the piano, and the missing cheese selections - one of my highlights. That aside, we had a great time.
Nice and quiet for business meeting, food was good, service was excellent.
Crab Cakes had very little flavor and I was surprised.
I would have lunch again there with a client as I could hear the conversation and that is important. Services again was excellent!!!
Very disappointed in the food. Omelette was dry and tough; bacon was almost burned and hard to chew. My friend's Hollandaise Sauce was plastic and unappetizing. We shared a bagel with lox, the lox was very fishy-tasting.
Also, our waiter failed to remove trash from the table, a small thing, but the Brown Palace has been known for the ultimate in dining/serving practices.
The cost of $64.80 plus a very generous tip was wasted that day. It was our first and last visit to Ellyngton's.
