  • The brunch at the Lake Terrace

    The brunch at the Lake Terrace was excellent food wise as it has been in the past however the service was yet again not that great. It's amazing that the when you go to brunch at the Broadmoor either everything is right on or it's not...nothing in between. The seafood, salad and main course foods were excellent however the desserts were not as good as they have been in the past. The service was okay but not what it should be for the price you pay for the brunch especially being at the Broadmoor. It appeared that the two staff that were assigned to our table were always elsewhere and if something was needed you always had to ask for it. Never once was anything offered other than at the beginning and then what was ordered was not delivered.

    For years, brunch at the BroadMoor during the holidays was a family occassion. We came back this year with 10 of our family to enjoy brunch on November 24. We gathered from Canon City, Colorado Springs, Broomfield, and Englewood. Everybody enjoyed the event. My wife and I have gathered eight friends to return for the brunch on December 29. Over the years, these occassions have been memorable for all of us.

    Dined on 11/17/2013
    Celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, we ventured down to the Broadmoor for its much-touted brunch. The food didn't disappoint! Lots of breakfast and lunch choices and variety to suit the most discriminating in our crew. For a meal at this price range, the ambiance is a bit casual and the service a bit inattentive. The child in our group was not quite as adventurous an eater as we had hoped and it was tough that an 11-year old who eats very little was charged as an adult. Petite desserts were just the right size for tasting and we sampled a wide array of choices during our time there. Enjoying a leisurely meal, we felt a bit rushed when servers stopped refilling our water and tea and disappeared for long periods of time.

    The brunch at the Lake Terrace is always a great experience. It is one of the largest brunch buffets that I have ever experienced and everything is wonderful. From sticky buns to blintzes to shrimp to ribeye to duck to fabulous desserts. If you can't find something wonderful to eat, you aren't hungry. In addition, the service is world class and the Broadmoor is always fun to visit.

    We truly enjoyed our brunch. The food was delish, beautifully displayed and oh, so many choices! However, I thought it was completely shocking that a place like the Broadmoor doubted my daughter's age. We went there to celebrate her upcoming 11th birthday and invited 2 of her friends to come along. Not one, nor two or three employees, but FOUR employees came to our table and asked if she was indeed under the age of 11. We learned later that children, ages 3-10 receive a different rate for their brunch. We felt as though the staff was inferring that she was older and that we were not being honest about the girls' age. NOT THE CASE!!! It was embarrassing and definitely uncalled for-she's still 10-even today!

    We brunch at the Broadmoor 2 or 3 times a year. It is wonderful. The dining room is comfortable and the service excellent. You step down to the brunch area, that offers marvelous varieties of salads, breads, cheeses, an omlette station, numerous entrees and marvelous deserts. I especially like the seafood selections that include shrimp, oysters on the half-shell and salmon. suggest small portions of several items, so you can sample desert.

    Experiences
    Dined on 10/20/2013
    This is supposed to be a highly upscale experience, and, though nothing warrants a bad rating, I found it to be lacking the elegance I expected. The tables were all very close together, the noise level was higher than I would have liked, and the pianist played fast versions of favorites that could have been better enjoyed at a slower, more leisurely tempo. The food was very good, though I am not sure I would have rated it as 5 star. It was definitely better than average or standard, and the variety and abundance of the spread was plentiful to the extreme, which is what I think people favor most. I was just slightly disappointed to not have the ambiance and overall experience match the luxury and esteem of the Broadmoor.

    Celebrating a 33-year anniversary while vacationing in Denver, we made a special trip to The Broadmoor because of what we heard about the "brunch" at Lake Terrace. We were not disappointed! The scenery, charm of the hotel and the array of food was unbelievable. Being able to try new and different foods was an adventure. We were graciously served by all staff. Although a bit pricey, special occasions deserve to be celebrated in a fashion that allows a "memorable moment." The Broadmoor afforded us that experience.

    We had 2 small babies with us for brunch, and staff was very accomodating to our needs (we had a group of 7 total). Service was awesome, very attentive - exactly what was expected from such a ritzy place. The desserts were fantastic! Food selection was so, so. I guess I was expecting more from reading the ratings. Halibut was dry and salty, braised duck was more like duck jerky. But overall experience we had a great time, just was expecting more in the taste department.

We highly recommend this experience for special occassions or grand treatment for out of town guests. After brunch we enjoyed taking in Broadmoor sights around the lakeside.

    Check out all of the items and come up with a plan of attack before you fill your first plate. As an example, there were six different types of smoked and cold salmon. The omelet action station serves over 500 omelets during a typical Sunday. The servers were also very helpful. Coffee was covered for you when you were not at the table. Plates were removed quickly and silverware replaced as needed. This brunch is not to be missed if you are in the area.

    This is a special place, and, since we live 50 miles away in the mountains, we keep it for very special occasions. It has never disappointed us. One of the few places to cook perfect Eggs Benedict, and such outstanding service. We had to think seriously about the weather forecast before deciding to risk Highway 24 in these difficult times, but we are very glad we did. As it was, we were happy to get back about an hour before Ute pass closed again. So glad we went ahead with it.

    ...I would definitely recommend waiting for the eggs benedict to be made to order right in front of you, as the ones that were prepared even just a couple of minutes before and placed in the chafing dish were already cold or the yoke was already set. I'm not sure the use of a chafing dish lends itself well to eggs benedict. Everything else was wonderful.

    The food was phenomenal, and the atmosphere is great. This, however, is not a place for fussy children. Other patrons are spending a fair amount on the meal, and screaming kids should not be part of it. The food is geared much more to adult taste. This is our third visit for brunch, and while the food was wonderful, the service was spotty. We were surrounded by large parties, so the focus of the wait staff was on those large parties, and as there was only two in my party, we felt like we got lost in the shuffle. We had to ask for dishes to be cleared and coffee to be refilled.

    This brunch blew me away. My husband and sister ate everything and said it was all high quality food. I'm gluten intolerant, and was ecstatic that they had a table of gluten free breakfast items. In addition, most of their lunch dishes (veal, ,chicken, pork, roast beef, etc.) was gluten free, not to mention all of the cold cut and fruit breakfast items. There was so much for me to eat. Definitely worth the $. I would come back in a heartbeat.

    The brunch at the broadmoor was one of the best meals I have ever had. The wait staff was attentive and stopped by often (but not too often, and the good selection was like nothing I've seen before. From smoked salmon to chicken Marsala,a bread table for any carb loving fiend,and a dessert table that had its own wall: the food selection was not lacking. I would also suggest this elegant venue for anyone with a special occasion to celebrate.
