This dinner was as expensive as some fine dining dinners we have had in London and Paris. That said, it is a tallest midget competition in Colorado. I put Penrose up there with the Little Nell and Frasca. The highlight is the age of their cellar. I think this is the best restaurant in Colorado at drinking wine at its... More

The setting was absolutely lovely looking over the city. We ordered the 3 course meal. There were 4 of us and each ordered a different starter. Everybody enjoyed theirs a lot except for me. I ordered the Eagles Nest Ranch Wagyu Beef Carpaccio. It was so dry that i had to scrape it off of the plate. I don't believe... More

The Penrose Room is pure elegance. Gracious service. Beautiful ambiance. Wonderful menu. Our main server was Brandon B. and he did a superb job as well as his helpers and the sommelier also did an outstanding job. When I made reservations, I asked for a booth and our request was honored. Loved it. We ordered the 3-course meal which was... More

Go early and have a drink in the bar while you check out some of the Broadmoor's extensive art collection. We did the four-course Chef's selection and it was amazing. Excellent service, too.

My daughter had her wedding at the Pauline chapel and the reception at the Penrose. What an incredible experience! The service was amazing! The wedding cake and food was delicious! The food portion was very small, that would be my only complaint, but it was absolutely exquisite. One of the children attending the reception became ill. His mother ended up... More

Forgive my ignorance Colorado Springs but on our roadtrip stopover on the way to Vail, I had low expectations for dining and stay. I was WRONG! The Penrose Room was a highlight of our ski trip. Get there early and enjoy some champagne and the beautiful lounge. Josh's wine pairing was fantastic. This was the first wine pairing I have... More

We have not eaten at a restaurant since that we have not compared the food to the Penrose Room. The best ever. And the service? I have never seen such good service.

Excellent Dinner!!! Service was superb. I'm not a big cocktail person but thoroughly enjoyed the Caipiroska. The Sweet Corn Voloute and Scallops were a hit. Enjoyed the Ribeye as entry and Pumpkin / Gingerbread for dessert

Penrose Room is a place to visit once every few years. It's very old fashioned (jackets required; multiple servers fussing constantly) and the food is very good. But the price tag is very steep - expect $225+ NOT including drinks for party of two. When we visited (on a Saturday night), most of the restaurant was empty, which was a... More
