    Saturday Prime Rib Buffet was very reasonably priced and buffet was elegantly displayed. Service was appropriately attentive and prompt. Unfortunately, the quality of the offerings on the buffet was average at best from a taste standpoint. Especially disappointing when the appearance of the offering had raised expectations. Mostly very bland and under seasoned, some dishes suffered from sitting too long before in our opinion.

    We ate here as a result of having a restaurant.com gift card here but it was very good for the price. Prices aren't unreasonable for what you get. Service was very good. Not very crowded for a Friday night but it is located in a hotel so probably a bit off the map (Hyatt Regency).

    The lunch buffet is unlike anything else in Denver - It's more like the luxe restaurants one finds in New York or San Francisco or the high-end buffets on luxury cruise ships - Top of the line, beautifully made and subtly seasoned and perfectly cooked food. Service was of the same caliber. And, of course, the restaurant is beautiful: open, light, modern and airy.

    My husband really liked his Philly cheese steak but my sister and I both opted for the buffet. The only two bowls they had for the soup had what looked like ALOT of soot in/on them. The cod was extremely dried out and tough. The beef stew was good and the salad bar was good. Good wine selection. desserts on the buffet were also dried out but the cheese cake was exceptional. the crust was out of this world so that I would highly recommend. Our waiter was really nice and funny but had a hard time getting him to come to our table. Seemed like he was very busy but only 6 tables were occupied. Maybe he had other duties?? Probably won't go back for lunch. I might try dinner.

    Wanted to go to brunch after dropping our daughter off at Comic Con. Hyatt website said brunch buffet so my husband made a reservation. No brunch buffet, just a very starchy lunch buffet. Rice, baked potato bar which would have been okay if the potatoes were cooked, beef stew, turkey chili, bean soup and baked cod. A very small salad bar and some desserts. Plates were dirty. Asked for a mild Bloody Mary and although it was too spicy first time, was remade with no problem. All we could think is that the chef felt that the ComicCon attendees just ate starchy foods and that's what they needed. Three soup/stew choices on a buffet and only one entree is not a buffet. My husband had a very poor Fathers Day lunch.

    We always try to dine here when we're attending an event at the convention center or the Performing Arts complex. We've always enjoyed to food and the service has been top notch. The buffet is well worth the small additional price.

    Been here before for the lunch buffet, but this was the first time for dinner. Food was outstanding and server, Stephani, was wonderful. She was was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Perfect dinner before a show at the Denver Performing Art Center which is only about 2 blocks away. Salmon was one of the best that I've had since moving here a year ago. Atmosphere is great and dinner was very relaxed. Server even asked when we were seated about our timing to make sure we had plenty of time before the show. Would definitely recommend for lunch or dinner!

    They pulled out all the stops for the Mothers Day 2014 Brunch offering - food was generous, overflowing and friendly staff. It was a great location, atmosphere and venue to treat our 73 year old in-laws (and our own pre-teen kids as well) to who were visiting from out of town. The price was as advertised and a drink for each of us was included. The entire experience exceeded my expectation....a real indulgence on a beautiful rocky mountain spring wet rain/snow afternoon in lovely downtown Denver. The lobby of the Hyatt Regency is also gorgeous and cozy which allowed for us to take a few family photos before departing.

    Service was SLOW and non-attentive. Omelet station was the best feature by far. Waffle station was slow and I notice they handles raw eggs then the cooked waffles without changing their gloves! Yuck, needless to say no waffle for me. One would expect more of a selection for 50 dollars a plate brunch.

    While the customer service throughout the rest of the Hyatt Regency (where this restaurant lives) was outstanding, it is an entirely different story inside Altitude. Worst was the disinterested and downright unhelpful hostess who flat out refused to work with us when our business breakfast party unexpectedly grew by one. Food was average, but the overall experience was really ruined by the lack of service.

    I have gone to brunch on Easter at the Hyatt for many years. However it use to be $35 per person, and the food was out of this world. This year it was $45 per person, and the food was not at all up to par. I might as well have eaten at the Golden Corral. If it wasn't for tradition I wouldn't go back again.

    First time at the altitude for Easter Brunch and it was just great. Unbelievable selections, friendly and attentive waiters even though it was buffet brunch. There were enough diiferent types of foods to sample that it would be impossible to leave hungry. We felt the quality of the food was excellent. Would definitely come back again.

    We came here for a special occasion and we were having a great day until we did come here. The food was great, it was better than expected but the service was very bad. It took about 45 minutes for us to get our food. The server rarely ever came around and we couldn't even spot her when we looked for her. My water glass was only filled once and was left empty for 25 minutes and then another 30 minutes after that. The approximate we spent there was 2 full hours! We ordered 1 appetizer, 2 entrees and 1 dessert. The service was too slow and we missed an important event because of it. We were only looking to spend 1 hour as usual for most restaurants but that didn't happen.

    I dined here several times for breakfast and lunch over a 3 day conference. Location was convenient at the hotel but that was all. Food was disappointing. Lacked flavor. Server continually pushed the buffet option but the buffet selection was not good, again not tasty, and made me feel like my server just preferred I get my own food rather than bother with my table. Location is so close to other restaurants in the downtown area, if I had to do it again I would definitely get off site away from the hotel more and not eat at Altitude.

    We went for Denver Restaurant week because they had an intriguing menu for it. The highlight of the meal was the pork belly appetizer. It was cooked perfectly crispy on top and tender and juicy on the inside. We had one of the featured wines that was recommended and were treated extremely well. There was only one featured dessert and when I didn't like it they provided me with one off the regular menu no extra charge. Nice. Overall very happy.
