Diner Reviews
  • "What an incredible place! Incredible service! Incredible food! It's not a turn tables kind of restaurant and we loved that. We took our time, savored our time together, conversation, wine, dinner and dessert. Wonderful place to take that special someone! Don't plan on being in a rush and make sure you have the funds. You are paying for a well deserved experience! Enjoy! WE loved every second of it!"

  • "My husband's retirement after 41 years was a milestone that we had to make memorable, cocktails at the Tavern, more drinks with friends in the Atrium with the piano in the back ground then dining in the Palace Arms was a night he will not forget plus only going up to our room to end the evening instead of going home in traffic was indeed the special touch, thank you from front desk experience to walking out of the restaurant with a smile on our face."

  • "We had a very nice time, the service was excellent. The fish was perfect. don't think I have ever spent more for dinner for two, but it was an experience. The table side bananas Foster was great."

  • "The history in this restaurant is amazing but the food and service were not. Many more outstanding spots in downtown but every one should go once."

  • "This is the third time we've celebrated our anniversary at Palace Arms. Every single aspect of our dinner was perfect. The waiter who had taken care of the two times before, remembered us and congratulated us on our anniversary (I'm sure we are in their computer system:)) I ordered the chestnut soup (Soup of the Moment). It was delicious! My husband was jealous of my dish. We both ordered the Rosini filet. Hands down, the best steak I've ever had. YUM!"

  • "The food was delicious, the location was perfect for where I was staying, and I didn't feel uncomfortable dining alone at all. They were warm and attentive."

  • "The food was well prepared and presented. The wine list was long with something for everyone. The room is undivided and got to be rather noisy making the ambiance less than romantic. The service was very attentive, almost omnipresent, again it did not lend itself to a romantic mood."

  • "My wife and I recently celebrated our 30th anniversary at the Palace Arms. The food was exquisite, the staff was amazing and the entire experience was outstanding. Our waiter, Omar, was as helpful and kind as he was experienced at his craft. I would highly recommend this fantastic restaurant to anyone."

  • "We celebrated a big birthday at the Palace Arms and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The staff accommodated our short schedule (we had theatre tickets) and never allowed us to feel rushed. The foie gras .... yummy. The Colorado wine, a cab franc, was a delight too."

  • "We enjoyed the wonderful food and great service on a recent trip to Denver for the Western Stock Show. We were seated immediately and an enjoyable evening was had. The butterscotch creme boulee was outstanding. Old world charm and very attentive staff."

  • "My wife and I went here for an early Valentine's dinner (our babysitter is moving before the real day). Our waiter, Lonnie, was the perfect example of being there when you wanted and letting you enjoy your evening the rest of the time. He was knowledgeable with his menu recommendations and was very personable. He is the kind of waiter that you hope to find at a place you love so you can request him every time you return. We ordered the 4 course dinner with wine pairings, so we got to chat with Michael the sommelier frequently throughout the evening. He took the time to understand our wine preferences. He not only paired the wines with each course but also based them perfectly with each of our preferences as well."

  • "We did an 8 course chef's tasting menu. AMAZING! Our service was unparalled, the presentation flawless and our "host" as I will call him Omar made the entire experience flawless. From ushering us in and out of the table (literally moving it to let us in and out) to ordering and surprising us with 16 savory courses, wine desert entrees appetizer, I can not decide what was better, the food or the experience. Cant wait to brunch here"

  • "We have eaten at Palace Arms about eight times. Only once were we not satisfied. Typically, this is a great experience with wonderful food and great staff. Our recent visit was fantastic and worth every cent. I recommend this restaurant to anybody who wants to know what a five star restaurant is about."

  • "We enjoyed the Palace Arms for the celebration of landing a new job; the dining, wine and service were excellent. Our only regret is that we seemed a little close to the kitchen door--to make up for it the sommelier (we suspect), treated us to several varieties of sherry after dinner! We are looking forward to our next visit!"

  • "This was our second time at the Palace Arms in a year. The experience was exceptional. The service was friendly and spot on. We really enjoyed the Bison. It is the BEST we have ever had. We did not care for the roast pig, was kind of bland and just not up to the standard of the other food. The coffee was wonderful and we just enjoyed sitting and having a nice meal in a quiet place."
    Dined on 11/26/2013
  • "Excellent service without undue fuss and pretention in a superb, spacious and quiet setting provided equally great food with a voluminous wine list that had reasonably-priced treasures. An evening to remember. Would go back in a heartbeat."

  • "The Palace Arms is always the definition of fine dining in Denver."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "I was just in Denver for a conference and ate at three of the top rated restaurants, the Palace Arms is by far the best of the three. I usually don't comment on ambiance because I really only care about the food, however in this case I'll make an exception. The Brown Palace is a beautiful late Victorian Hotel and the Palace Arms is an elegant room, certainly a great place for a special occasion. That said we had the four course prix fixe, every course was delicious. I started with the soft shell crab, followed by a seafood soup. The soup was not a usual soup, instead it was presented as a small stack of lobster, scallop and fish over which they poured a delicious broth. I followed with a wegyu steak which was perfectly prepared."

  • "I have been here a few times and this time certainly did not disappoint. The food was outstanding and the service was as well. We had a wonderful time, the staff were very attentive and we left feeling very satisfied with our experience."

  • "Took my dad for his birthday, family flew in from out of town for this special dinner. Everything was perfect, the food, the staff, the decor. My dad was very impressed as were the rest of us. Looking forward to going again."

  • "Everything was outstanding from food to service! We had a party of 5 ranging from 7-73 in age and everyone loved their dinner and talking about the heritage of The Brown. We learned that since The Palace Armes opened all but 2 Presidents have dined there. When we left our little Maggie said "I want to go back there every week"."

  • "My visitors from Australia were passing through Denver on the California Zephyr and stopped for a quick visit. They asked me to find "nice place" for dinner Friday evening, their" shout". So made reservations at the Palace Arms. My friends absolutely loved it. Not only was the food some of the best they had had in America (including a 2 week stay in NYC) but the service was hands down the best they had experienced. Everyone we encountered from Valet Parking to the bread waitress elevated our evening with their friendliness and professionalism. I could not have chosen a better restaurant than the Palace Arms. The ambiance, the decor and the low noise level allowed for easy conversation."

  • "Surprisingly modern food in a very old school setting. Fun."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "the food was as good as the atmosphere and the service. not that the food is bad. it's fine. but it is out-shined by the service: "refreshingly formal yet friendly and attentive" and atmosphere. the rabbit terrine was seriously underseasoned and flavorless. the foie gras appetizer was better but no wow here either. the lamb was nicely cooked and attractively accompanied on the plate (we asked to substitute potatoes for tibuli and were accommodated graciously) but the lamb simply needed more flavor. if you closed your eyes you would have difficulty identifying it as lamb. all that said, i'd go back in a heartbeat because of the service, ambiance, wine list and surprisingly reasonable prices given the high-end nature of this establishment."
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "The Palace Arms is unique in my experience dining in Colorado. Simply dining there turns the evening into a special occasion, and I find the staff to be welcoming and accommodating. We usually order the prix-fixe chef's menu and and the wine pairing. The wine choices are always interesting and work perfectly with each course. My only quibble was that my entree (bison Rossini) seemed just a big over salted, but my preference is for less salt than many people. We will definitely keep returning!"
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "Whereas it was once impeccable in every respect, the Palace Arms is now somewhat less than perfect. Yet, because there is no comparable location in the region for a very special evening out, it still tops our list for very special occasions. The room remains an elegant Empire gem. The service remains refreshingly formal, yet friendly and attentive. The food remains excellent, though not quite as uniformly superb as in "the old days". The caesar salad for two, prepared with considerable flair and skill tableside, was as exceptional as we expected. My beautifully aged ribeye was exceptional. My wife's halibut was very good, but not quite as good as in "the old days"."

  • "Everything we expected from fine dining in a historical room. The only thing we would have added is classy background music!"

  • "Dined this past week. The service was horrible. This place is fine dining but if took ten minutes for s someone to come to table. Not crowded at all. Too many other places to go in Denver before I would ho back. ."
