Penrose Room - The Broadmoor Ratings and Reviews
The Penrose Room is a throwback to old-school elegance but with updated cuisine.
There are amuse-bouches and craft cocktails along with an extensive wine it's that would make most sommeliers envious.
We had the halibut and the bacon wrapped lobster, both of which were superb.
The sorbets were the best we've ever had -- so creamy and flavorful it was hard to remember that it wasn't ice cream.
Our chef's tasting meal was incredible. My wife's aversion to seafood and mushrooms was recognized, wine pairings that didn't match our taste were swapped, and Crystal the sommelier was excellent (as was the entire staff). It was a delightful evening for us (though it is fully priced!).
We had never done a 5 star restaurant before and although the bill was more than I budgeted for it was absolutely an amazing evening. The professionalism, customer service and the way everyone made us feel was exceptional. The food was absolutely delicious and meticulously prepared. We were stuffed for sure. A 5 star restaurant should be on us common folks bucket list for sure and The Penrose Room should be the place to enjoy it. Get dressed up and surprise your loved one or celebrate something special.
In case you were not aware the valet parking is complimentary too. It was just an experience my wife and I won't ever forget and keep in mind that the dinner is about a 3-4 hour experience with live soft music in the background and people even dancing.
My wife and I have annually had dinner at the Penrose Room to celebrate her birthday for decades and have historically raved about the ambience, service and food. It is a pricey experience but well worth it - until this year. Resort-wide, the Broadmoor has gone to an automatic 20% tip on all checks, no matter the number of people at the table. I am an habitual 20% tipper, so on the surface that would seem like no big deal, but we saw a noticeable difference in the service at each restaurant venue we visited on the property this past weekend. The service attention was not the same because, in my view, they get their 20% no matter what and I'm willing to bet the server doesn't get that tip anyway now, where they used to get all or some of it. Another change for the Penrose Room is the menu. An obvious focus on presentation has overtaken the quality and sensibility of the food selection. The menu is very fancy now and even the traditional dessert has been changed. We ordered the carrot cake and it turned out to be a gelatin dish with carrot shavings on top - seriously?! The two of us had a friendly drink in the bar before dinner, a wonderful Caesar Salad made table side then things went downhill with the entrees and dessert. We also had two glasses of wine with dinner and the tab came to over $300 - whoa! I've paid that much in the past with no regrets because the Penrose overall experience has always been so great. Not many place with a band and dance floor, either, which adds to the overall experience we've loved. We hate the changes made there as it has been our favorite restaurant, and I even feel bad giving them such a bad review, but only hope their management reads this and does something about it. We won't be going back there if they don't.
My husband and I were given this as a gift from our son and daughter in law. The food was fantastic, the taste of each food was wonderful. The service was very warm and friendly, we enjoyed the conversation with our servers and they gave us time to visit and experience and taste each course. The Penrose room is defiantly something I would recommend to anyone looking for a dinning experience to go beyond expectations.
The Penrose Room is a high-end restaurant that delivers a fine dining experience. The very attractive room sits atop the South tower of the Broadmoor Hotel and it has beautiful views of Cheyenne Mountain. This is a special occasion restaurant. Both the food and wine are expensive. Most dishes are traditional but with some nouvelle twists. Service is outstanding. This is a restaurant at which one can spend 2 - 3 hours enjoying the food, the view, the service and perhaps some dancing to the live music.
Your chefs style obviously does not suit our palate. We dinner in a few Michelin star restaurants like Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles or Martin Wisharts in Edinburgh. I'm afraid Penrose does not come close. There are too many competing flavours on the plate. The bar area is great and the old world ambiance of the dining room & views we like very much. The food is a turn off.
My wife and I went here for our 10th anniversary. The service was excellent, the staff were very professional, and friendly. The food was great, all items were very tasty. It was a great place to celebrate our anniversary. It's a little expensive for my budget, but for a special occasion, I highly recommend going to the Penrose Room and treating yourselves.
The ultimate in dining in every respect. Their five star rating is more than well deserved. We have eaten at great restaurants through the world - with doubt among the top five ever. Worth a trip to Colorado Springs just to experience the ultimate in dining. Not inexpensive but for a special occasion well worth the price.
A beyond fabulous dining experience! Every course was uniquely delicious & the service is impeccable & not at all stuffy. The venue presents stunning 360' views of The Broadmoor & golf courses, the mountains & Colorado Springs. The dining room is beautiful with a subtle background big band to enhance the upscale mood. We celebrated my husbands 65th birthday there & the experience was definitely 5 star. We were both so very pleased & loved our special time there!
We went out as a board to this venue. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The wait staff was very attentive but not pretentious. The meal lasted 3 hours and we had plenty of time to converse and enjoy each other's company. It was expensive and it was rated correctly at 5 star.
Our last night in Colorado Springs we celebrated our anniversary here at the Penrose. The ambiance was fantastic and the music was great. The view was outstanding. Our server Ryan was young and did a so so job. The other servers ( assistants) were very good. Our meal was great even though the Venison was over cooked. Ryan said it would be cooked Med rare and that is what I asked for and it came out Well Done. I showed Ryan the dish and he agreed but did not offer to redo it. The sommelier was not that helpful. I still give it five stars for the Ambiance , the view, the music and the taste of everything
Everything about the service, food preparation and presentation was superb. This was truly "fine" dining at its absolute best! The musicians were wonderful with a great selection of music that pared well with the dining experience. Truly "First Class dining" which is a signature facet of the Broadmoor organization.
Just Amazing!!!! We enjoyed cocktails in the lounge to begin our evening. The service is impeccable. We then enjoyed dinner in the main dinning room and the three piece band was playing, the sun was setting and again the staff was in incredible. The seven course meal was superb and we cannot wait for our next visit.
My sisters and I were so excited to top off our birthday celebration weekend with a special dinner at the Penrose. The service and ambiance were excellent. The appetizers were excellent. When we received our main entre however, it was sadly disappointing. My sister ordered the filet, cooked medium - unfortunately it came rare. I ordered the confit of duck and it was also not cooked. I was so upset that I substituted my duck for the risotto but by the time it arrived I was just not looking forward to partaking. The desserts were amazing. It was so sad to end our celebration with a downbeat. Not sure how something like that could happen at a 5 star restaurant.
The ambiance was so wonderful with a fun jazz band in the background. The service was impeccable. It was my birthday and they treated me like a queen. We were just slightly disappointed by the food. All of it was good, but I think we had really high expectations.
