    Food offered extensive types of food. The eggs were overcooked. The tables were really packed in. The service was just okay. My coffee cup was empty before they would refill. One guy spilled stuff right in front of me. They tried but there did not seem to be an organized staff. Not enough people considering the price of $52 a person. Everyone was pleasant but it looked like they were training alot of new people. You should leave coffee at the table or have someone coming around constantly.

    I was a little skeptical about spending $50 for brunch, even if it was at The Broadmoor. By the end of our meal, however, I felt it was well-worth the price. The selection and the quality of the food on the buffet tables was excellent. I focused on foods that I didn't eat all the time, such as the lamb and the beef. Our servers were prompt and kept on top of all of our needs and requests. I highly recommend brunch at the Broadmoor to anyone who is looking for the perfect place for Sunday brunch.

    Great selection of food! I felt like royalty... it was our 7 yr anniversary and I requested a secluded place in which they sat us by a window away from the group of people and gave us a special dessert. The food was prepared at an astounding level its hard to describe. Then of course the desserts were incredible they had 3 or 4 tables dedicated to desserts!! I tried my best to sample everything but there was so much there was no way. I wish they would uphold the dress code though, because some people were dressed in workout clothes! ??? Some people need some class! The service was great, always keeping our table clean and our drinks full, very respectful. This was worth every dime!

I live in the Times Square area of NYC and have access to the finest restaurants in the world! The Broadmoor's Lake Terrace Restaurant is in that category. It's even worth a plane trip out to Colorado Springs!! The service is EXTRAORDINARY, openly and behind the scenes; I'd recite my experiences, but can't risk the chance of it disappearing again! Food and presentation are AMAZING! We were a very satiated party of 13. A little pricey, but SO worth every cent!

    Our brunch at The Broadmoor's Lake Terrace was a special treat. We had been planning our trip to Colorado for months and having Sunday brunch at the Lake Terrace was in the top five on our "must do" list. The Lake Terrace did not disappoint. Service, ambiance, and the gourmet food offerings were excellent. Laura and Winston did an outstanding job taking care of my wife and I. The Sunday brunch at The Broadmoor's Lake Terrace remains high on our "must do" list when we visit Colorado again in the future. Marvelous dining experience!!

    The Sunday Brunch at the Broadmoor is always a delight. The many choices give anyone and everyone in your group or family a reason to try everything or just go with their favorites. The desserts are worth a view before you fill up with all the other items because they are so special and so many varieties, and small serving so you can sample a few. Service is always outstanding without being obtrusive. If you are a senior citizen or someone with some mobility issues, let them know and they will provide you with a table at the food service level so you don't have to take on the stair (there are only five) with a plate(s) full of food. Yes, it is expensive but so worth the cost.

    I'd been here before, but disappointed this time. I was paying $56 per person, but all the waitress did was try to get us to buy beverages that cost an additional amount. It was very frustrating. In the past, the waitress emphasized what was included in the price and that made things seem like a better deal. The manager also came by just to make small talk, but seemed very unnatural for her and this made the experience even more awkward. The food was great, but staff made it a very disappointing experience.

    We were placed at a very nice table and had adequate service. All the staff including the buffet chefs we encountered were very nice. Food was good and there is a very large variety to choose from. Our favorite was the Belgian waffles with Grand Marnier sauce. Scrambled eggs served at the omelette station were even good. Disappointing though is the perception that they do not enforce the dress code. Some patrons looked like they just came out of the pool area, sauna, etc. This takes away from the dignity of the venue. Overall we enjoyed it.

    This is the 3rd time my husband and I have had brunch here. Last time the service was not as good as the previous time and this last time was somewhat better. However...every time we come the price goes up. This was the last time we are coming. Although we only come for our anniversary it has become too pricey. We also had to ask other servers and wait staff for our hot beverages and water because our primary server was nowhere to be found. When she came to our table she was talking about how it was her birthday the night before and that she was very tired. At $52 a person I could care less. We also had a problem with our server last year also and when I wrote a complaint it was not acknowledged. The food is good but...

    Our celebration of my husband's birthday weekend included the Fantastic Sunday Brunch at the Broadmoor. We were seated, served and attended to with smiles and great service from all. The live music, the fresh seafood, fruit, entrees, and those pastries all add up to a wonderful culinary experience not to be missed by anyone in traveling or living in the area. As we were winding down I mentioned that we were in town celebrating his birthday and viola - a pretty dish saying "happy birthday" appeared as they refreshed our coffee! Very thoughtful and touching. It's part of why The Broadmoor is so special - part of their intent seems to be to allow you to relax and be taken care of - you don't have to think about how to do it. Thank You.

    The food was absolutely to die for! The brunch buffet had hundreds of items to choose from and everything was fine dining quality. The lamb was the best. Definitely worth the money. I would go back just for the desserts--oh my goodness. I'd go every Sunday if I could! :) As always, the Broadmoor had excellent service, gorgeous views and ambiance and the entire experience was divine.

    We booked this reservation for a special occasion and it certainly didn't disappoint! Our wait staff was gracious and unobtrusive, the room was elegant and the food was exquisite! Next time, we'll stay overnight in the hotel on Saturday, enjoy the grounds (with picture-perfect views of the mountains and serene lake) and then sit down to a leisurely Brunch on Sunday morning. It's expensive, but well worth every penny!
