Dining al fresco in Colorado is a singular experience, and this hilltop restaurant has one of the most breathtaking views in the city. The atmosphere is very formal (the waitstaff wears tuxedos) and is popular with the Colorado Springs social set. Diners are treated to meals prepared right at their table, a nice touch of personal service. The menu has remained pretty standard over the years, featuring favorites like the restaurant's signature pepper steak, but the chef occasionally offers dishes that push the current culinary boundaries. A full wine list is available.
The Penrose Room is one of the most stylish dining options at The Broadmoor. It holds the honor of being the first and only Five Diamond restaurant in Colorado. The ambiance is elite and interiors are artistically appealing with an intense mixture of colors and style. The wine list is extensive and well matched with the delicious gourmet meals. This is fine dining at its best and a dress code is strictly followed. Alongside the exquisite cuisine, there is also live entertainment and dances held here weekly.
For a truly classic dining experience, check out this restaurant housed in a restored Victorian mansion. Diners can choose to be seated in one of several rooms or on the patio during the summer months, where a string quartet provides live entertainment. The menu is ambitious and offers such dishes as Colorado Trout, Braised Rabbit, and Roasted Cornish Game Hen. Vegetarians can find a few choice items to conform with their tastes too.
If you had to select one restaurant in the area that combined superior setting, service and atmosphere without being snobbish, this "standing-ovation" of a restaurant would be it. Everything from the southwestern tiled floors to the adobe walled patio is drenched with care, making it resemble something one would expect to find in Santa Fe. The restaurant offers three ever-changing entrees, which usually include steak, seafood or southwestern fare. Saturdays feature chamber music. Reservations are strongly urged.
