    The food was average. Not bad, but nothing special either. Side dishes are extra. Really, for what you get it is very overpriced. You could get a meal of similar (or even better) quality for less money at many other places nearby. Atmosphere was incredibly quiet. There was no music playing. The place was pretty empty (6:30pm on a Wednesday). Service was very slow. Given how empty it was, I would have expected our meal to be out much faster than it was. Overall, I was unimpressed. Nothing terrible, but definitely not worth the money.

    We had dinner at Altitude before going to see a show. We gave ourselves an hour and a half to eat, but by time the waiter finally came over to take our orders we were down to about an hour. We explained that we needed to be done by about 7pm and the waiter agreed that he could make it happen. By the time our food arrived we only had about 20 minutes to actually eat. Then our waiter kind of vanished. I ended up having to go to the front counter and ask for a to-go box and the bill and explain that we were now in a hurry. And my sisters both had Martinis and they didnt rinse the oil from the olives so the drink didnt taste right. They even mentioned it to the waiter before ordering different martinis and they still came out with oil in them.

    I had high hopes that this place would be better, but the food was nothing special. Typical caesar salad, somewhat small. Had the scallops appetizer as I wasn't too hungry. They were decent. However, the kitchen/server made a classic mistake: he brought both at the same time, one cold, one hot. It was only myself so it didn't make any sense to serve at the same time.

    I have read the other reviews for this restaurant and am going to have to disagree with the negative ones. My friends and I met upstairs for drinks at the Peaks Lounge and then headed downstairs for dinner after the sun went down. I have to say that we were all truly happy that we did. We had the Grilled Short Rib and Cheese sandwich, as our first appetizer, and we almost got two more orders. We loved it that much! But we decided to try the other appetizers instead and were not dissapointed with them either. We had the Lamb Meatballs and Hand Cranked Sausages and loved them both. We also ordered the pear and bleu salads with meat(s) and they were also pretty good. I would defintely go back. Service was a little slow but not overly bad.

    I went there for linch buffet. Limited buffet options and the dessert taste awful. Our waitress was not friendly, i felt that she was there to only to fulfill an awful job task. My child was given the kids menu that has coloring and game activities but they were out of crayons so it was useless!

    Stayed at this hotel and breakfast was included with valet parking. The buffet was nice but the noise level was pretty loud due to large groups seated near our booth. The wait staff was nice about moving to a quieter location. The food was very good as was the service.

    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.

    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.

    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.
