    We don't dine out often, and the Broadmoor is a rare treat for us, but that's exactly what it is ... a treat. The expected factors never disappoint - the surroundings are beautiful and elegant, the food is marvelous, and the staff is wonderful. It goes without saying that the food is terrific, especially the desserts, but the staff truly make the experience memorable. The staff is courteous, helpful, and very friendly. They make you feel at home within the opulence of the Broadmoor, rather than just a visitor.

    Long line in ladies room. Had hard time getting out out of middle bathroom. Door knob was not working. Loved the view of lake. Gave us cheesecake for our 30th annivsary, what a wonder surprise. Made us feel special. Hard to get through tables and chairs. The shrimp was biggest I every seen. All the staff answered all my questions and offered to walk we there. I liked that, I get lost Easily. It was our first time there. We would like to come back some day.

    Make sure you check out everything they have to offer before filling your plate as there is NO WAY you can taste everything even though it all looks and tastes fabulous. Great place for special occasions - wedding anniversaries, birthdays, wedding groups. Take time to walk around the lake after your meal, and if you are only there for a meal, walk around the hotel as well, do some shopping, too! The staff is so helpful and nice.

    Stunning as always at the Broadmoor Sunday Brunch. Reservation was made requesting a table on same level as food since one person in my party is currently wheelchair bound. That request apparently never got to manager on duty on day of the brunch. However when confronted with the situation when we arrived, manager and waitpersons immediately took action to set up a table for us on the food level so handicapped person could easily select herself the food she wanted rather than having someone get it for her. Kudos to manager on duty and waitpersons. Brickbats to Reservation Office. This is the Broadmoor folks and as normally is done, everyone needs to follow up to ensure everything is and remains 5 star!

    For once, "everyone" is right - you haven't had Sunday brunch until you've had it at the Broadmoor. The food is amazing and there's so much more than the usual omelettes, bacon, and home fries (although they were delicious, too!). Where else do you see lamb, pork, extra-jumbo shrimp, and oysters on the half-shell? Or made-to-order sweet AND savory crepes? The dessert array alone is worth the price. As if that wasn't enough, the service, from the valets to the wait staff, is impeccable. You're treated like royalty every step of the way. I had asked for a "special" table if possible since it was my daughter's 21st birthday, and not only was that honored, but they even presented her with a special birthday dessert complete with candle.

    The food was amazing! It was a great place to go with a small group of friends. Due to its price, not likely we will go again, but definitely glad we went. My only complaint was having to wait for a table for about 15-20 minutes even though we had reservations.

    The Broadmoor is a true gem, a wonder to behold, and a national treasure. Lake Terrace is a key part in making the venue a wonderful experience. Suffice it to say that our "overall experience" was superb in so many ways. The Lake Terrace Bruch experience was the best of the best (food, service, & ambience). Focus on who you came in with and everything else will come together. Let The Broadmoor know what you are celebrating and they'll make it that much more special. Request a table for two facing the lake and make it a romantic experience. Keep it simple, keep God, love in the equation and you absolutely can't go wrong. We'll be back, God willing... Rod & Linda

    While the Broadmoor is still a "Good" Brunch, it appears to have lost a step in the overall quality of the lunch. The fish and chicken quickly dry out under the heat lamps. The ambience is still very good. Maybe we've grown accustomed to looking for something a bit unique each time we go.

    The ambiance inside the Lake Terrace Dining Room matches the traditional architecture and design for which the Broadmoor is known. Live piano music accompanied fine linens, high end silverware, and a view of the mountains and lake. There were so many food stations that it took two laps to decide how to attack. A number of items were decadent, including the caprese salad, biscuits and gravy, crisp bacon, waffles with smashed Heath bar, pastries and fruits of all varieties, deserts, ham, pork, and numerous lunch dishes. We waddled out of the brunch buffet with huge smiles on our faces and neither of us were hungry until 7pm that night. This place is perfect for special occasions or when you don't mind splurging on brunch.

    What could be better than time with family and friends at the famous Broadmoor Resort. This was our first time having the Sunday Brunch and we will definitely be back. The service was of course exceptional and the food delicious. So many items to try and the desserts are out of the is world. We went purposefully for our daughter who is a Baking and Pastry student at Johnson and Wales University. Needless to say it just made her more confident that she is going in the right career path.

    Roast beef was dry. Many main dishes had gluten, & unnecessarily so imo. Tremendous service as always. Really wish they wouldn't call to re-confirm & require that I call back. If they'd just tell me if we're not there within 15 minutes of our time we'd lose our table that would be great. When I called back was on hold for at least 10 minutes. Annoying!

    This is the fourth time we have eaten at the Broadmoor Sunday Brunch. We went to celebrate Valentines Day. The Sunday of Valentines Day was already completely booked, so we went on the 9th. We arrived at 11 a.m. and were just delighted from then on. The atmosphere was excellent and the food layout was exceptional with both a buffet and served items. The menu was varied and had plenty of options from biscuits and gravy to oysters on the half shell and it seemed everything in between. Nothing seemed greasy or hastily thrown in a pan to fill the buffet like many other places we've tried.The service was excellent and we never had to ask for anything. I highly recommend this Brunch to anyone, specially if you are celebrating a special occasion.

    When my in-laws came to visit we took them here for Sunday brunch. It was a first for all of us and it certainly measured up to the hype. Our most difficult decision was to decide whether we wanted breakfast food or lunch/dinner food. After tasting a little bit of everything we had to try the desserts. Thank goodness we did, because they were absolutely decadent and in perfect bite sizes so that that you can try more than one!

    The Broadmoor is a great place for a family celebration - we just celebrated my Son's 23rd birthday there. Sunday brunch has so many choices and the quality of the food is excellent. There is no pressure to leave so you can eat your fill. You can make healthy choices or not - it is up to you! And if the weather is nice you can take a stroll around the lake to work off the calories. We have been coming to Sunday brunch off and on for over 25 years and have never been disappointed. The Broadmoor is our favorite place to eat and I highly recommend it to all.

    These days the view is marred a bit by the hotel construction (west) but that cannot really spoil such a delightful experience. Our biggest challenges were to limit our choices then take just a small bit of the many many delicious choices offered. Service was as expected...gracious, unobtrusive yet extremely attentive. Presentation and variety were superb. Plenty of delicious deserts as well in small, beautiful portions!

    The food was very good, and the decor in the room was beautiful. The piano music was too loud, and the staff kept taking our plates even though we were not finished eating. It was very uncomfortable, so we won't be going back. The food was very expensive....it may be partly because the staff kept throwing away food.....leaving us no choice, but to go back and get more of the same food that they just took from us.

    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.
