Penrose Room - The Broadmoor Ratings and Reviews

A magical evening of delightful, perfectly prepared food, attentive, knowledgeable service, a sumptuous atmosphere overlooking the lights of Colorado Springs and a pleasing jazz band playing old standards and Christmas songs made for an unforgettable evening for my daughter and me. We could not have been more pleased with our experience.

When we first arrived we had very tentative service with multiple servers. After we got our bread and then we're left alone for 10 to 15 minutes when the sommelier noticed us and came to take a drink order and offer advice. He was wonderful and ended up taking our food order. We had the tasting menu and the food was very good but the portions were very large as to not allow us to eat all the courses. I also have allergies and the accommodations they made for me were to change nothing on the menu but take out that ingredient, not substitute. Awesome ambiance and the live music and dance floor are a very classy touch.

We discovered the Penrose Room some years ago when we stayed at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. We quickly discovered this was a very special place to dine.
This year my wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and we chose the Broadmoor and the Penrose Room to celebrate the occasion. The setting and live music helped to create a wonderful atmosphere that enhanced the total experience that included impeccable service and exceptional cuisine.
In our opinion the 586 miles drive from Kansas City to enjoy our stay at the Broadmoor and dine at the Penrose Room is worth the time and effort.

This was much more than just a dinner date, it was an experience in fine dining. The cuisine was not only delicious but artistically presented. Every detail was attended to. The entertainment was great. The female singer had a lovely voice & the 3 piece band had a great repertoire of songs. The dance floor was large enough to accommodate all! It was an evening that we will not forget!

What an absolute beautiful dining experience. The food was delicious. The service was outstanding‼️‼️ The dining area was stunning, enjoyed the music, added such a nice touch. My husband were pleased beyond imagination. We will absolutely be dining there again. Thank the Penrose staff for such a memorable evening. The views are stunning‼️

This is the only 5 diamond restaurant in the entire state of Colorado. It's extremely expensive, but worth every penny. I've never had a dining experience quite like it. It felt strange to me to have so many attentive and courteous staff tend to our every want/need. The wine steward is extremely knowledgeable and recommended a perfect pairing for both of our meals. Each course was exquisitely prepared and presented. If you want to impress someone, or celebrate a special occasion, this is where you go.

We enjoyed the experience with one exception. There was a $15 surcharge for the rib eye, which was very good but in the presentation placed a piece with no fat on the top of another piece with quite a bit of fat on it. When it arrived at the table the color identified it as an exceptional piece of beef but when one removed the top piece the bottom piece was of much lesser quality, a lot of fat and chewy. Not good for a restaurant that professes exceptional quality and at very high cost.

The service, food and ambience in the Penrose Room were exceptional, as usual. The only negative was that the live music was so loud, it was impossible to engage in conversation at our table. Be sure to request a table away from the stage if you want to talk during dinner.

This was a great place to have a nice dinner date. Very romantic setting. Food was excellent. Staff went out of their way for us, including meeting unique dining restrictions one of us had. We will definitely be back!

If you ever want an exceptional dining experience with great food, fantastic service, an incredible view, a wonderful atmosphere in a beautiful setting, the Penrose Room at the Broadmoor is the place to go! We celebrated our 1st and 43rd anniversaries there and will definitely look for the opportunity to celebrate a few more occasions there.

We love the Penrose Room and have been there several times. Great view this night and were celebrating our anniversary. Food and music were very good but service was spotty for the first time ever. Waiter was not always there, we had to ask three times for bread, twice for water. Poured our own wine. Not up to the usual fine standards of service.

Fabulous by all accounts! The staff is top notch, the food and the presentation is incredible and every detail of the meal is thought out and well orchestrated for the finest dining experience. You feel special from the moment you exit the elevator to the reception area till the moment you depart (rather reluctantly I should add). And don't miss a pre or post drink in the bar; fantastic bartender and great room to just sit and relax. Get dressed up and have fun - this is a must-do when at the Broadmoor, or any place close by for that matter. Excellent!

It was a wonderful experience. Very elegant. We dined and danced and felt very special
The service was the best I have had anywhere. My food was super. My husband's was a bit undercooked and we should have told the waiter. I would go again, for sure

The ambiance of the Penrose Room was spectacular! The volume of the live band was perfect and allowed for great conversational volume at our table. The only two minor detractors I would note were: 1) a large party arrived shortly after we did and they were louder than I feel was appropriate (often times their volume would interrupt our conversation); 2) the very limited craft cocktails (or so it seemed when the waitress had to go back and forth between our table and the bar to see what kind of drinks the bartender could make. Granted, this is a fine dining establishment and not a bar or the Golden Bee, however, I would still expect a higher level of whiskey for example (my old fashioned was made with Old Overholt and left a lot to be desired). Again, minor point ans I know most people would order wine there anyway.

We had the chef's 7 course with wine pairings. The food was unique and seemed to really tell the summer story especially around local fresh ingredients. Surprising pairings from the halibut and some sort of raisin mash to the black pepper sorbet and apricot dessert. The wine pairings started off really well but there was one wine that was just ok (last wine pairing with the dessert). Sweet wines are not at the top of my list on the normal day. All of the courses were excellent except the main course which was veal. The meat was not seasoned well and extremely chewy and tough. The service was impeccable and the soft live music with the graceful sound of a woman's voice singing transported us back in time. Truly a special place. Overall an exceptional experience. The bar offers the same feel with breathtaking views for an after dinner drink.
