Pepper Tree Restaurant
Favorite RestaurantThe Pepper Tree Restaurant has been our favorite restaurant in Colorado Springs since 1988. The food is always spot on, the service is outstanding, and the atmosphere is very warm, welcoming, romantic, and special. The restaurant also offers beautiful views.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBeyond all expectations!!!This was the best dinner experience we recall ever having. The service was outstanding and the food was no less than perfect! We enjoyed the atmosphere and found ourselves just watching the staff work the entire room. This was one of the best examples of teamwork we have witnessed. Each staff person there paid attention to every detail at every table. We totally enjoyed just watching how everything works, we've never done that in a restaurant before. The pepper steak was amazing as was the Steak Diane and veal. We have talked about our special night non-stop for the past two days and have told all our friends and family what a great dining experience we had! Wouldn't change a thing!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for the foodOne might not expect to find great food given the neighborhood, but our group did. We shared 2 apetizers, 3 entrees and 2 desserts at our table and found them all to be delicious and prepared as ordered. Especially flavorful were the sauces, which enhanced the dishes significantly. Tableside preparation of several items was masterful and entertaining without being intrusive. Service was professional, though a bit rehearsed. Overall a great dining experince - we will be back.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience! The serviceGreat experience! The service was amazing & food was wonderful. I suggest ordering one of their signature steaks that they cook table side. Very impressive.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMust love steakAs soon as I cut into my steak Dianne, I knew I was in love. The taste, texture, tenderness of the meat was exquisite! The appitizers and dessert were also delicious. The steak had just the right amount of marbling causing it to be so tastey and tender. The Dianne sauce was just enough to finish off the steak, but if I had a choice I would ask for more. Great decor, however I wish there would have been a piano player or some soft classical music pumped through the restaurant somehow. The servers were outstanding when we first arrived, attending to our every needs, but toward the end of our evening, they staff seemed a little more busy with the additional volume of diners. The table side chefs cooked the steaks to perfection!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeWe ate there 2 nights in a row a great place if your in Colorado Springs. A MUST5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful place for our 20th!!Pepper Tree is a very special place! Excellent wine list, steaks and great wait staff. Very romantic and a place for any special dining experience. Expensive, but worth it!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Impressed!We arrived to celebrate our 13th anniversary. We were the first guests to arrive, so the dining room was very quiet. We wondered if it would be a boring evening. within an hour the room was full. Everyone was dressed very nicely and the servers were exceptionally friendly and professional. We ordered the Scallops with a Thai Chili sauce for appetizer. They were incredible and cooked perfectly! Then we ordered the Pepper Steak and Steak Diane for our main entrees. Little did we know the steaks would be cooked table-side. We loved watching the chef's magic with each ingredient and fire show :) We were served the most tasty, tender center-cut steaks we've ever had by far! It was fun and simply outstanding service and food! Thank you!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and service.Amazing food and service. Salads, steaks and dessert prepared tableside. Prepared to perfection!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak in Colorado Springs!If you want the best tasting steak in the city, go to the Pepper Tree! The Famous (downtown) is awesome, but the flavor and tenderness of the signature pepper steak is out of this world. EVERY time we eat here, it is consistently fantastic! It is not cheap, but for a special occasion, worth every penny.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOverpricedThe front
hostess was not that friendly and all of the staff kept pushing the wine. Now I know why; we each ordered one glass
of red wine and got about 1/4 of a glass for the price of a whole bottle. They are making a killing off of the wine.
It took a while for our server to give us the menu and they seated us in the middle of the dining room when there
were tables open near the window. They make the steaks at your table and did not notice we ordered two steaks
not one so it took longer for our second steak to cook. In the end they undercharged us for the bill by a large amnt
and although we were honest and patient while they corrected the total; they could have offered us a discount
accordingly.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is amazing. We wentThe food is amazing. We went there for my birthday and it was great. My kids loved it too.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMRoom with a view!We found the Peppertree through Open Table, since we were unfamiliar with Colorado Springs fine dining. The ambiance was delightful with a great view of the city. Dinner was prepared tableside and was delicious. My first martini was not the best but the second made up for the deficiency. We would recommend Peppertree to other diners.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service!Great food and service - one of the few places in town for a special occasion.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a specialGreat place for a special occasion or business dinner.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe signature steak deservesThe signature steak deserves far more acclaim than it already has.

This is our favorite place for fine dining.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPepper Me NotWe have been eating at the PepperTree for 20 years. It has been about a year since we last ate there. They have switched from a pepper kernel to a coarse pepper paste that was too much. Not the same as before Neil Levy.
Previously we had been charged for refills on club soda (really turned me off). This time they were gratis.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMquite and relaxed atmospherequite and relaxed atmosphere - outstanding service and excellent customer relations.

We were very pleased with all aspects of the dinner, though one of us did not get the proper side dish that she had ordered.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMYour Pepper Steak was, onceYour Pepper Steak was, once again, out of this world. Loved it!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AM5 Stars!!!5 Star Service and Food! I hosted a dinner that included a party of 10 from various parts of the U.S. This was my first experience at the Pepper Tree as I live in Denver. A drive-by of the restaurant earlier in the day left me feeling a little skeptical - the 'curb appeal' could use some help. I trusted the reveiws on here and on Trip Advisor - a very good decision! The service was simply outstanding!!! Everyone in my party really enjoyed the food with three choosing the pepper steak with a mango chutney - delicious!!! We ordered 5 deserts to share - each was fantasitic. It's worth the 1+ drive from Denver to dine - will do so again in the near future.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating our 45thWe were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary. We had a very enjoyable dinner and a lovely view.

A wonderful experience both times.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVery elagant, super views,Very elagant, super views, waiters in tuxes provide superb service and high quality food, the pepper steak is very impressive table prepared. Good wine list, appetizers, a tad expensive for the entrees but you get two nice sides. Book a window table, we watched a storm roll up the valley while sipping fine wine.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great evening, foodHad a great evening, food is amazing and enjoyed our visit with Neil the owner.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had not been to the PepperWe had not been to the Pepper Tree in a long time. We took friends who had never been before. Two of us had the lobster bisque and were disappointed. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't as tasty as expected. However, dinner was absolutely wonderful. Salads were crisp and flavorful. The bread was warm, crusty outside and soft and delicious inside. The entrees were perfect; two of us had pepper steaks and two shared the Chateaubriand . Desserts (shared chocolate cake and apple pie with cinnamon ice cream) were delicious but much bigger than expected.
All of the waitstaff were prompt, friendly, and we never had to ask for anything. It was a wonderful dining experience for our special occasion celebration.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a large group of 13We were a large group of 13 and all of our steaks were prepared perfectly and served at the same time. I will remember this trip to Colorado Springs by THIS dining experiance at the Pepper Tree. My one regret was getting the 6 oz steak diane...I wish I had ordered the 8 or 10 oz.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
