Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed Brunch. For the price, you are definitely paying to eat at Brown Palace. I feel like there could have been more options but overall was good. One of the options offered was sushi, however it looked like it had been sitting for awhile. Dessert was the highlight of our visit with a fantastic chocolate drink and bananas foster!"

  • "Ellyngton's is probably one of the best restaurants for lunch in Colorado. The selections and food quality are outstanding along with the food actually being healthy. Hard to beat this combination in my opinion."

  • "I was here about ten years ago, and virtually nothing has changed since then. I'd like to think that very little has changed since the hotel opened its doors 100 years ago... making this a rare glimpse into history!"

  • "We celebrated our forty-fourth wedding anniversary with brunch at the Brown Palace... first time! It will not be our last! The staff know how to receive guests and the food exceeded our expectations... delightful variety and deliciously prepared. Jessica, our server was a personable and graciouos young woman who made for a very pleasant experience. Loved the jazz band. Valet service exceptional."

  • "We pondered the actual breakfast menu as we had arrived before the brunch buffet was completely set (10am) and were impressed with several tempting and reasonably priced offerings. The allure of what we had read to be the best brunch in Denver won out, though. Salad bar components, sushi, lamb and prime rib carving station, raw bar, smoked local trout, each wowed us. Moet et Chandon flowed like water (and tasted like honey-coated stars) for only $20 more than the buffet only price. What a great value. Add in the two musicians and a very nice occasion turned really special. Everyone should try this if in Denver on a Sunday. Doubt you will regret it. If so, the dual white and dark chocolate fountain or mini creme brulees should right it."

  • "Our daughter and son-in-law had their wedding reception at the Brown Palace 6 years ago. We've made it a tradition to celebrate our anniversaries (3 days apart) with brunch at the Brown Palace. We are always made to feel very special, treated like royalty, and the food is just perfect -- tasty and perfectly prepared."

  • "Very enjoyable brunch with friends. Great variety of food-something for all. The one thing that I was disappointed with was the eggs benedict-specially cooked. I prefer the yolk to break out over the muffin and it was a hardcooked yolk. On the other hand, my friend said it looked just the way she liked it. All in all, I would recommend heartily."

  • "Ellyngton's was wonderful! We weren't sure that we'd be able to top our all time favorite brunch location on the San Antonio River Walk but we love this place just as much. The atmosphere was fun and festive, the food was excellent and the music was pretty awesome as well."

  • "We made brunch reservations thru open table but when we got there it was for a different breakfast and not the brunch. Food was very bland and luke warm. Certainly not worth the money we paid."

  • "A predictably elegant Sunday Brunch Buffet with all the expected breakfast fare with omelettes, lamb, roast beef, sushi rolls, raw bar, seafood and a vast selection of sweets. There is no culinary magic here but a well prepared, beautifully presented brunch buffet in the elegant surroundings of the historic Brown Palace. Nice Jazz - I wish the musicians were next to the entrance door and the dessert buffet was with the other food. It might lessen the volume of the very nice jazz combo that can make conversation difficult and it might improve the flow of the room where the jazz group is set up now. Service was very professional and attentive."

  • "I had been told that rather than making the trek down to the Broadmoor, I should try the Brown Palace because their brunch is just as good. It is not. Nor is it as good as many of the other restaurants that do brunch in Denver/Boulder. The presentation is very nice and the room is impressively opulent, but the food is nothing special - in fact, I liked very little of what I ate - and the service is well dressed but lacking. Food: Not much variety overall, the orange juice was not fresh squeezed (though we were told it was), the smoked salmon was cheap and salty, the prepared fish tasted about a day past fresh, and the coffee was awful. Service: Plates weren't bussed, water/coffee glasses empty, needed to ask for new silverware"

  • "This brunch is always special and never disappoints. We haven't been in almost seventeen years and I ask myself why, the BP is history and quality and we are putting in on our calendar for at least an annual visit. "

  • "Very tasty and varied brunch selection. Impressive seafood bar. Service is first-rate. Ambiance is good, but live music called for just a piano versus a live trio--noise-wise. A wonderful place for that special brunch, but you'll pay for it."
