    Their brunch reminded me of brunch at the Biltmore in Miami, only a lot less expensive. Food was great, service was perfect and the place is gorgeous.

    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.

    Dined on 9/29/2013
    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.

    Our 1st experience at the Broadmoor for brunch and it exceeded expectations on all counts. The setting is elegant, the service is superb and friendly, and the food is magnificent. 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. Make your reservations and enjoy, you will not be disappointed.

    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.

    I brought my family from California to the Broadmoor because I had heard from friends that this is "The place" to go for Brunch in Colorado. I felt valued as a customer as did my family and we all felt as if we were important guests during our time there. Our service was impeccable, the staff was friendly and the atmosphere was amazing. We continued to discuss what a great time we had thruout the rest of the day. It was a fantastic time and we all look forward to coming back to the Broadmoor.

    Brunch at the Lake Terrace restaurant was the highlight of my weekend trip to Colorado Springs. After retiring from teaching in Ohio, I moved to Colorado and started my Colorado Bucket list. Several years ago while vacationing in Colorado, I came to see the Broadmoor during Christmas.... enjoying the holiday decor. It was then that I knew I had to return and splurge for the famous Sunday brunch. Next on my Broadmor bucket list is an overnight stay... Looking forward to your great friendly atmosphere with people who truly enjoying working there !!

    Heard about the buffet and checked via open table and got a reservation Sunday morning for 1:30pm brunch. When we got there, they didn't show our reservation at first and told us it was sold out. I informed them of my confirmation notice and they somehow found our reservation. My friend was there the night before and was told on Saturday it was sold out. So, use open table, it works great! After a great and elegant brunch, we walked the beautiful grounds and had a great time. Made for a great afternoon. I highly recommend it!

    This is one of the gems of the Sunday buffet brunch world. The selection is wide and interesting with some innovative touches. However, there were a few missteps. I asked the chef to make me a fried egg. He spilt the yolk, and cooked the egg that way, and made it till the egg was solid. Obviously knows how to make an omelette, and scrambled eggs, but can't fry an egg properly. His colleague who handled the eggs benedict, however, did a perfect job with her eggs (just a bit runny). No hard-boiled eggs available on Sunday (only on other days). The duck was nice but the crust was soggy and oily. The Chinese know how to roast a duck properly in a number of techniques. We've found no western chef so far who can rival that.....

    The Sunday Brunch at the Broadmoor is a wonderful experience, one that we repeat at least twice a year. It's a little pricey, but that adds to the experience -- everyone there is aware that this is more than just a meal, it's a special event. The food is of the highest quality and greatest variety. But what we like most about this dining event is the wonderful staff, who do everything possible to make the brunch a happy experience for everyone. Thankfully, most guests dress well for the occasion, adding to its impact.
